Summary: Sometimes justice needs a hand.
When a young lawyer for the number one environmental law firm in Seattle is found dead on Mount Rainier, the police declare it a tragic accident. A desperate mother turns to Raja Williams, a private investigator always willing to help.
Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja is a wealthy Oxford-educated PI of mixed Caribbean descent who possesses a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. His partner Vinny Moore is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture.
The discovery of a sinister scorched-earth plot to hide the truth leads Raja and Vinny to the Arctic wilds of Canada and lands them in the middle of a battle over the riches of the pristine wilderness. If assassins don’t kill them, the sub-zero weather just might.
Swimming Upstream is the third intriguing mystery thriller in the Raja Williams Series. The colorful cast of characters and timely topics make it a fun, entertaining story that can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Q & A:
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
To me, there is no such thing as an aspiring author. You either write or you don’t. Start writing. Keep on writing. Finish what you start. Don’t start with an epic novel, start with a story. I recommend Heinlein’s rules on writing.
What is your favorite book?
That’s a tough one. I have what I would consider eclectic taste in books. I like reading Stephen King, Dr. Seuss, Homer, Mark Twain, Jonathan Swift and Elmore Leonard. The reality of the characters and how well they communicate to me is most important. Suspense and some surprises also help keep me interested.
Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
