Who can you trust in a country haunted by its past?
On the hunt for an abducted Indian beggar girl, Peruvian National Police officer Nina Flores is determined to track down the suspected kidnapper, a man who resembles what the locals call pishtacos: tall, pale ghosts who steal children. In spite of being jumped by a mysterious attacker, and the murder of a woman who gets too close to the truth, Nina is blocked at every turn by her superiors. Then she discovers links to a second case reaching back twenty years to the country’s dirty war. Defying the powers that be, Nina forms a shaky alliance with a member of a brutal drug cartel and heads deep into the Amazon jungle. She will bring the lost one home, or die trying.

Born in the wilds of San Francisco, with its rich literary history and public transport system teeming with characters suitable for crime novels, the stage was set for Max Tomlinson to become a writer. He has published five novels to date: SENDERO (listed as one of the top 100 Indie novels of 2012 by Kirkus), WHO SINGS TO THE DEAD, LETHAL DISPATCH, THE CAIN FILE (selected by Amazon’s Kindle Scout program), and the follow-up, THE DARKNET FILE, published in March 2017.
Max’s upcoming Colleen Hayes Mysteries of the ’70s will debut in late 2019 with Oceanview Press.
Max’s alter ego, Max Radin, is also known to pen the odd humorous effort. Check out “Rock ‘n’ Roll Vampire” for a shocking exposé on vampirism in the music industry.
