Arson, murder, romance and the small town Southern girl.

An Amazon #1 Best Selling Private Investigator Mystery

Arson, murder, romance and the small town Southern girl. An Amazon Best Selling Soft-boiled Mystery. Insurance adjuster, Kati MacKenzie never intended to be an amateur detective. Nor did she ever dream that her quiet, boring job could suddenly become so dangerous. But, when two charred bodies turn up in the ashes of a warehouse fire that she's investigating, she knows everything in her life has just changed.

Kati rapidly goes from a sweet, pampered Southern girl in historic Opelika Alabama to a hunted amateur detective trying to solve a crime in order to stay alive. Things like getting beat up, shot at and almost run down start happening more and more frequently and carrying a gun becomes a daily necessity. The body count keeps climbing and before the smoke clears, Kati is forced to add one to the pile herself.

Like it or not, Kati is an unwilling detective in an Amazon Best Selling soft-boiled suspense thriller involving arson, murder and romance. Somehow, through all this mayhem and suspense, a gorgeous cop named Rex, a handsome hero fireman named Rich and a nine year old boy named Toby manage to keep Kati alive, on track and safe. Along with the help of her trusty .38 revolver of course. Can Kati stay alive long enough to solve the multiple murders and the arson mystery? Can she overcome a disastrous marriage and divorce and fall in love again? Will the overlying crime cartel let her live if she does solve the case?

And will her mother's world famous cinnamon buns save the day?

About the Author

Hi! I'm Greg Clark and I'm the author of the Amazon #1 Best Selling novel, Ashes of Arson. I'm in my seventy's and live with my wife of forty years, Kati, just outside a small town in East Central Alabama. I love the woods around my house and love to garden. Kati and I have a son who lives in Washington state with our two granddaughters and we visit them every chance we get.

I've been a huge fan of mystery novels all my life, but don't like books with graphic sex or unnecessary violence. There's enough real violence in the world today without me dreaming up much more. I have a well defined understanding of the capabilities and limits of the human body (retired Chiropractor) and try to make my characters real. I also have a realistic understanding of firearms and their limitations (active gunsmith). I'm a Vietnam vet and spent six years in the U. S. Navy, working on secret code systems and nuclear subs.

I enjoy writing and at one time was a part-time staff writer for two international writing instrument collectors magazines. I still love to use fountain pens for all my note taking and rough draft writing, and have a pile of them. Before writing Ashes, I've had twenty e-books and articles published.

Over the years, I've read more mystery books than I can count, and these books slowly fuelled a story growing inside me. I've always been a talker and a story teller and at one point I decided it was time to write my first novel. That point was during the process of reading the Forgotten Coast mystery series (Dawn Lee McKenna). My time had come.

Thank you for reading this and I would like to invite you to join Kati MacKenzie, Firefighter Rich Wells and Police Sergeant Rex Tomlinson in their adventures. Please follow me on Facebook ( and check out my web page (www.gregclarkdc).
