Sticks and Stones is an amateur-sleuth mystery novel about the underground sex trade in pre-9/11 New York City. Add in the Russian Mafiya, sex slaves, and a dead military officer who happens to be a client of the dominatrix heroine, and you have an explosive story that explores themes hidden from everyday view. The book includes the bonus short story "Prowling Wolves," about the Iwo Jima flag-raiser, Pima Indian Ira Hayes. "Sticks and Stones" is available in both paperbook and ebook formats.
