The Amazon Kindle version of LET THE GUILTY PAY, the first novel in Rick’s new Bartholomew Beck series from Fawkes Press, is available for pre-order.

Other pre-order information will be released when it is available.

The novel will release wide on July 4.

Bartholomew Beck has a secret.

He saw who killed his neighbor, but he lied to the police and now the wrong man is on Death Row.

Oh, and he wrote a bestselling true-crime book on the murder, further cementing his lies.

Twenty years after Summer Foster’s death, Beck’s writing career has gone cold and he’s making ends meet on a Texas oil pipeline when he finds a co-worker beaten to death with a screwdriver sticking out of her right eye — just like Summer.

This time he’ll have to come clean with what he knows and Let The Guilty Pay.
