The cover for Resurrection Angel, the Shamus Award nominated novel by William MizeA Young Girl In Trouble…

Lisa Rappaport seemed to have it all – a popular boyfriend, a wealthy father and a sudden and unexplained case of amnesia. A late night phone call brings Denton Ward and Monty Crocetti to her bedside and into her life.

Things Get Weird…

Her doctor thinks it’s a routine case, but a hypnosis session with Denton brings to light a possible cause for her memory loss – alien abduction and rape. Lisa swears she’s a virgin, but a drugstore test proves she’s pregnant.
Could the father be of unknown origin?

A Tragic Death…

Or is the answer closer, here on planet Earth? A sudden death brings the case closer to home, and it’s up to Denton and Monty to weave the many threads of this case into a tapestry of redemption and justice that will resonate long after the last page has been turned.

Dang, This Book MUST Be Good…
