 The tenth Inspector Green novel has been written and is in production, to be released in October 2014. In this book, Green is forced to confront the case that launched his career.


Twenty years earlier, rookie Detective Michael Green helped convict a young professor for the murder of an attractive co-ed.  The man continued to protest his innocence, and shortly after being paroled, he is found dead. Is it suicide? Revenge? Or had Green, with blind overconfidence, failed to see the greater evil lurking in the young woman’s life?
