Bill Shannon
Created by Dave Zeltserman

A Cambridge, Mass. police detective with a troubled past when we first meet him in the horror/mystery hybrid Bad Thoughts (2007), BILL SHANNON returns as a full-fledged private eye now relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 2009's Bad Karma, which the author himself has described as "more of a hard-boiled PI novel."

After the craziness of his previous adventure, which involved a demonic serial killer, all Shannon really wants is a little peace and quiet, and maybe to pick up a little gumshoe work on the side. And a chance to reconnect with his ex-wife Susan.

Fat chance. The easy-going New Age vibe of Boulder hides a rash of nastiness, ranging from deviant gurus and suspicious cults to Russian mobsters -- and Shannon finds himself right in the thick of it.

Zeltserman, of course, is the creator of private eye Johnny Lane, another troubled Colorado eye, originally introduced in In His Shadow (2002).
