Tai Randolph is accustomed to murder and mayhem. As a tour guide in Savannah, she’s learned the tips are better when she seasons her stories with a little blood here, a little depravity there. She’s less experienced in real life criminality, however, preferring to spend her days sleeping late and her nights hitting the bars.

But when she gets the news that her trouble-making cousin has keeled over while running a marathon, Tai finds herself in a hot mess of treachery and dirty dealings. Worst of all, the clues lead her straight into the moonshine-soaked territory of the most infamous smuggler in Chatham County—her Uncle Boone.

“Trouble Like a Freight Train Coming” is a prequel to the Tai Randolph mysteries. It's set in Savannah several years prior to the inheritance of her Atlanta gun shop and her first encounter with security agent Trey Seaver, who ultimately becomes her partner in both romance and crime solving.

For readers familiar with the rest of Tai’s adventures, this story is a chance to watch her develop her sleuthing chops. For those meeting Tai for the first time...welcome to her slightly reckless, somewhat hungover, not-quite-respectable world. 

It’s just one of the stories in Lowcountry Crime: Four Novellas, which features crime fiction set in and around the coastal lowlands of Georgia and South Carolina. I'm honored to have writers Jonathon M Bryant, James M. Jackson, and Polly Iyer joining me.The anthology is available in both print and Kindle e-book; Tai’s novella is also available as a $1.99 standalone on Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, Kobo, iTunes, and Google Play.
