My name is Mike Pettit, Author,Writer, Novelest, Scribe, whatever. My alter egos, John Locke, Jack Marsh, and Sam Nash and their pals live in my head 24/7, non-stop. They are like tracer rounds ricocheting around my brain. I know there are other like me out there in the blog world going though the same thing.

This is the go-to joint for everything suspense and mystery, a stake-out for writers that want to share their thoughts. Come on in, drop anchor, grab a cup of joe (or latte), and let's talk murder...or writing about it.

Sam Nash, P.I. Hard Boiled Mysteries are reminiscent of the Pulp Fiction era of fifty years ago when tough, street smart Private Eyes survived on cigarettes, booze and stakeouts. A time when the good guys weren’t always good and the bad guys were really bad, and each new case brought the two toe to toe in suspense and danger. Mike Pettit has taken that same genre and fast forwarded to current day Los Angeles and has his man, Sam Nash down on the street, fighting today’s gun mutts in the never ending battle against crime. Nash wins some, and loses some, but never gives up until his man is down and bleeding.

The Skid Row Murders drops down quickly into L.A.’s underbelly where young men are being stalked and murdered by a tortured predator. Mega rich movie stars are living in a wonderland of Hollywood dreams by day and secret lives of decadence and destruction once the sun drops down over the Pacific. Sam Nash, P.I. walks the fine line of social respectability and street level tough guy that knows all the tricks, scams, and pressure points, and isn’t afraid to go the distance…if the money’s right.
