About Patrick Logan
More than a decade later and an alphabet soup of letters after my name, I found myself looking down the double-chamber of a microscope at an eyeball. Feeling ironically introspective, I decided that it was time for a change.
Three years and more than three-dozen novels later, I've found my true calling, one that also includes letters. Hopefully you see something in my catalog that you like, something to feast your eyes on.

*Newly edited and revised, September 2018*
In a world where personal value has been distilled down to how many likes, shares, and comments your posts receive, some people will do anything to become famous...
And if you can't make it on talent or looks alone, sometimes you have to resort to more sinister means of acquiring the attention you crave.
What starts off as a simple assignment—finding a missing cat—ends up being one of the most volatile, and personal, cases of ex-NYPD Detective Damien Drake’s career.
Drawn back to the city that he both loves and loathes, Drake is once again thrust into the spotlight. This time, it’s to search for a missing Tabby. But while, at the outset, this seems straight-forward and benign, he should know better; after all, with a child he hasn’t seen since birth, an entire police department out to get him, and a PI Firm on the brink of financial ruin, nothing in his life is easy.
But that won’t stop him from doing the right thing, no matter the personal cost.
As a general rule, you should never f**k with cats. Equally as dangerous is messing with Detective Damien Drake or his inner circle. Because if you piss Drake off, he's coming for you.
And there aren't enough Internet trolls on earth to stop him.

Three women have been stripped naked, their throats slashed. Someone has put duct tape across their mouths and propped their eyes open.
Fresh off her first case, FBI Agent Chase Adams finds herself on the road again, this time with a new partner. But before she can even arrive in Chicago, the killer strikes again, bringing the victim total to four. To make matters worse, the killer seems to be taunting Chase, leaving a trail of confusing evidence that leads to nowhere.
The local PD is convinced that they're looking for a single suspect, a man who charms his way into women’s homes before seducing and murdering them. Chase, however, isn't so sure. There's a shadow lurking, a suspect hanging just outside her periphery, one that may or may not be a demon from her own past.
One thing is for certain, if Chase doesn't get her act together and catch the killer soon, she may very well become the fifth victim.
