Looking for great mystery/crime fiction?

The Theresa Maddux Mysteries.
Good natured, sarcastic and tough, Theresa Maddux, Reese to her friends, is a former Marine Corps Staff Sergeant hired by a unique client base to solve problems where all other resources have been exhausted. A self described Acquisition and Recovery Specialist, allied with cops and criminals, she skirts the edge of legality chasing answers regardless of risk or consequence. And sporting an unorthodox charm, an unchecked wit and a jackhammer talent for scrapping, she has an uncanny knack for producing unconventional results, some dangerous, others deadly.

Hard-boiled crime fiction set in the present day, The Theresa Maddux Mysteries on Trilobite Books include Green and Ghastly Deep, Gunmetal Blue Moon, Dawn's Blood Red Light, and Gray and Languid Grave Part I. Novels to follow include Gray and Languid Grave Part II, Hail of White Hot Vengeance, Golden Silence, Gilded Cage, and Last Stand on Purple Mountain.

Dawn's Blood Red Light


Gray and Languid Grave


Green and Ghastly Deep was a good romp that had me guessing about some things right to the end. I can't say much more without giving away plot details so I'll content myself by saying that Renwick crafted some bold and unexpected turns in her story - you'll enjoy it.

Author Renwick hits another home run with the return of heroine Theresa Maddux. Espionage, murder, intrigue and the Maddux character go so well together. You'll be immersed with this hard to put down thriller. Can't wait for more Theresa Maddux!

OMG! What an emotional roller coaster. You are a brilliant writer. Very rarely does a book make me feel emotional. This one did. Keep writing

Mixing her brash and forward facing Marine Corps attitude she encounters her share of challenging situations and challenges. You'll want to make sure you don't have to get up early. You won't be able to put this one down.

An Adventure Series Worth Following.

Theresa Maddux remains a well developed character with a lot of grit... There is quite a buildup in suspense the story becomes a real page turner. The novel (Gray and Languid Grave) is as engaging as the previous and recommended for those readers who are fans of serious and compelling mystery genre.

Without a doubt, in a different circumstance, Renwick's Reese Maddux series would be a NY Times has it all in spades! I read Baldacci, Flynn, MacDonald, Child and Renwick, to me, is right there with all of them for thriller entertainment! Anyone who enjoys thriller novels will not regret turning a Maddux page!
