Hannibal Jones is a trouble shooter, fighter of evil and a dogged investigator who finds himself up against organised crime and city corruption helping victims who are mostly the sick and most vulnerable. Hannibal’s creator is Austin S Camacho who returns to Goldster Inside Story on the publication week of his latest in the series, Subtle Felonies, a captivating mystery that takes us deep into Americana. A retired basketball star, Xander Brown, goes missing. His wife calls Hannibal for help and we delve into a world of money, music, sport and murkiness. Austin, himself, is a fascinating character. He handled media relations for the Pentagon and was a reporter for the American Forces Network. Deeply embedded within the American writing community, he is featured in the Edgar nomination anthology African-American Mystery Writers.
Austin is skilled at transforming today’s thorny issues of race, religion and identity into compelling crime and thriller fiction. In Blood and Bone an eighteen-year-old boy lies dying of leukaemia and members of a wealthy Virginia family are eliminated. In Beyond Blue, a privately funded detective agency helps police officers in trouble. In Ice Woman Assignment, a retired mercenary and retired jewel thief take on a Latin American drug cartel.
