About Raja Williams

Raja Williams

Rather than the typical down and out, broken, alcoholic private investigator found in many stories (admittedly a successful character, rich in nuance), Raja Williams is an independently wealthy, Oxford-educated private investigator with a mission to bring justice to the underdogs he encounters. He does not carry a gun but he knows how to use one, and he has a sixth sense that leads him straight to trouble. Raja has an ethical code of conduct that his partner calls “Raja’s Rules.” Following his rules sometimes throws Raja into a worse tangle of trouble than he should tackle but, lucky for him, he has some very resourceful friends.

Vinny Moore

Raja’s main investigative partner is a strong female character whose top-level hacker skills help Raja crack his cases. Vinny once worked for the U.S. government until she purposely made herself more trouble than they could handle so they would cut her loose. She loves to push Raja’s buttons with the hipster lingo she is constantly picking up on the internet. Despite her teasing, Vinny is Raja’s best friend.

The button-down, Oxford-educated Raja Williams and the hipster, wild-child hacker Vinny Moore make a strange pairing but they work hand-in-glove. The two of them do whatever it takes to bring justice to those who have nowhere else to turn.

About the Books

The Color of Greed

What do a private detective, a hacker and an assassin have in common? The desire to help when justice needs a hand.

The young husband of a wealthy heiress is found dead on his yacht floating off the California coastline. The grieving widow, certain her husband was murdered but getting no help from the police, turns to Raja Williams, a wealthy Oxford-educated private investigator, who has dedicated his resources to help those in need of justice.

When Raja arrives in Los Angeles and more bodies begin to pile up, he suspects a cover up that may go as high up as the governor. With the help of his partner Vinny, a highly skilled hacker, Raja must unravel the case before everyone involved, including the two of them, winds up dead.
