About Timothy Cole (author)

In prior roles he served as an editor at leading marine magazines, and was the science/technology/aerospace editor of Popular Mechanics magazine.

He is an instrument-rated private pilot, and holds a 50-ton captain’s license from the U.S. Coast Guard. Tim and his wife, Sarah Smedley, live in Greenwich, Connecticut and New York City. He just completed Cry for Lancer, which sends Dasha Petrov on a frantic hunt to stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and find the president’s killers.

About The Sea Glass Murders
A decapitated body burned to a crisp might be found in any dumpster in any city in America, but not in the aristocratic Gold Coast community of Westport, Connecticut. Local cop Tony DeFranco dutifully collects evidence, knowing that the State Police will take over the case. But when the state investigator tries to cover up the murder, DeFranco starts a rogue investigation.
He forms an alliance with retired CIA case officer Dasha Petrov, whose elderly, ladylike appearance masks a lifetime’s experience with violence and deception. As the body count mounts, DeFranco relies on Dasha’s insights and skills acquired over decades of global troubleshooting to stop a killer operating at the pinnacle of American power.
A glimpse at the sordid underside of position and wealth, The Sea Glass Murders is an action mystery with an immersive, fast-paced plot and unforgettable characters.
