About the Raja Williams Novels

In writing this series I wanted to create a character who was neither the down-and-out, tragic anti-hero nor a James Bond super spy. Raja Williams is a brilliant private detective with a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. He doesn’t carry a gun but he knows how to use one. Raja has an ethical code of conduct that his partner calls “Raja’s Rules.” Following his rules sometimes throws Raja into a worse tangle than he should tackle but, lucky for him, he has some very resourceful friends.

Raja’s partner, Vinny Moore, is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture. 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 to bring justice to those who have nowhere else to turn.


Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone novel.
