THE RONNY BACA MYSTERIES
A Ronny Baca Mystery (Book 1)
When L.A. Private Investigator (and aspiring actor) Ronny Baca takes the case to find A-List actor Bob Landman, one of the most recognized people on the planet, he thinks, How hard can it be?
The answer is: Very.
Ronny and his partner, Hondo Wells almost immediately have confrontations with members of the Russian Mafia. An odd, serpentine trail of clues lead Ronny and Hondo to a famous Russian painter, undocumented aliens, Indian caves, and golden artifacts, all of which get them closer to Landman and deeper into trouble.
Bodies start appearing and the pressure increases, but the two friends push ahead because Ronny knows that Landman’s life balances on the edge of a knife.

A Ronny Baca Mystery (Book 2)
Hondo Wells dramatically rescues a young woman from a burning vehicle, and a passing news helicopter films it all. As people crowd around the blaze, the news crew continues filming and the woman disappears as if by magic.
No one can locate her, so Hondo and Ronny take it upon themselves to find the mystery woman. They discover her name is Jett Sunday, and that the burning vehicle is no accident. Some very bad men are intent on finding her. The more the two friends dig into Jett's past, the more mysterious–and dangerous–things become.
The FBI and CIA are suddenly very interested in what Ronny and Hondo are doing, and a black cowboy with lightning quick guns is hard on Jett’s trail. An East European with ties to terrorism pays Ronny and Hondo a visit and leaves a not-too-veiled threat: Stop looking for the girl, or else.
Looming behind all of them is a terrifying, seven-foot tall behemoth with a Terminator-like focus on finding Jett Sunday. It seems the only people on Jett’s side are Ronny and Hondo, and they know her time is running out–fast.

A Ronny Baca Mystery (Book 3)
Ronny Baca and his friend Hondo Wells get a little excited when television mogul Sylvia Artell hires them to locate her missing daughter, Bodhi Artell. Both men’s bank accounts are anorexic and this opportunity is just in time. From the start, Ronny and Hondo encounter an odd assortment of people, including a helpful undocumented alien, a struggling rock band named Electrical Testicle, Sylvia’s fiancé, Troy Hanson, a stunningly beautiful woman named Amber Lane, and Jericho Moon, the enigmatic leader of a hippy-like group of young people. The more Ronny and Hondo dig, the darker the trail becomes. Evidence points to a menacing figure called The Kiowa, but he is elusive. Cryptic messages written in human blood are found at murder scenes…and at the old haunts of Charles Manson. The two detectives close in on Bodhi’s whereabouts, when out of nowhere Sylvia’s fiancé whisks Bodhi away and takes her home. Ronny and Hondo arrive at Sylvia’s mansion hours later to discover that Troy and Sylvia were married only minutes before their arrival, and Jericho Moon performed the ceremony. Bodhi appears dazed. Things seem over, until a few days later when Sylvia and her friends are murdered. Bloody messages on the mansion walls echo the Sharon Tate murders. Troy says he and Bodhi survived the bloodbath by hiding. Ronny and Hondo return to the mansion several days later and discover a note that orders Troy to take Bodhi to a particular graveyard. The two friends rush to the scene and straight into a nightmare of tricks, deception, and revealed truths. Their lives hang by a thread in an inferno of bullets and flames, and Bodhi can only survive if Ronny Baca again does the impossible.
