A False DawnSean O’Brien couldn’t remember the last time he made a promise and then broke it. He has every intention of keeping the promise he makes to his wife, Sherri, right before her death. O’Brien quits his career as a homicide investigator with the Miami PD and relocates to a remote section of Florida wilderness on the banks of the St. Johns River. He’s restoring an old home and trying to rebuild his life when he discovers a young woman badly beaten and left for dead near the alligator-infested river.

“A darkly suspenseful, atmospheric thriller. Absolutely relentless. I refuse to believe that this is a first novel. It’s just too damned good.”
- Steve Hamilton, Award-Winning Author of the Lock Artist

The injured woman whispers a cryptic message in O’Brien’s ear, and he makes a promise to her. But when authorities drag their feet during the investigation, O’Brien finds the vow he made to his dead wife is about to conflict with the guarantee he made to the woman who was savagely attacked. Soon O’Brien is plunging deep into the dark world of human trafficking and sexual slavery. He is tossed into a deadly cat-and-mouse game where the only pledge he can make now is to stop an evil antagonist with a twisted, Godlike complex that’s hellbent on sacrificing O’Brien to a greater cause.

“A False Dawn makes good reading for anyone longing to stumble upon an unpublished John D. MacDonald Florida mystery.”
- Steve Glassman (Book list)


For a first book, I thought this was very good. The characters were very good and the whole former cop I got. I do know that the book was written good. Some of the reviews about bad spelling and other things came from the book seller not the writer. Because this book was clean. Really enjoyed the story.
