One Man’s Quest Begins…

Get ready for a heart-pounding ride through the dark underbelly of America in Patrick H. Moore’s latest thriller, Rogues & Patriots.

As the second installment in Moore’s gripping trilogy, this book plunges readers into the dangerous world of veteran LA PI Nick Crane. Locked in a life-or-death struggle with the ruthless Miles Amsterdam and his cabal of aristocratic “super patriots,” Crane must navigate a treacherous landscape where power and ideology collide.

Eight years after he and his team liquidated Frank Constantine, a murderous military shrink and close personal friend of Miles Amsterdam, Nick Crane finds himself abducted, beaten and threatened with rendition to a black site in Egypt if he refuses to join the Principals’ cause, which includes attempting to incite anti-Muslim violence in every major American city. Crane, however, is rescued by his close friend and business partner, Vietnam War vet Bobby Moore, and the war is on.

Packed with well-drawn characters, relentless action, and razor-sharp narration, Rogues & Patriots is a scintillating sequel that builds on the momentum of its predecessor, 27 Days. As Nick Crane once again emerges as a beacon of resilience and integrity, readers will be drawn deeper into a world where the fate of a nation hangs in the balance.

Are you ready to uncover the secrets of power and deception where nothing is as it seems, and trust is the ultimate currency?

Join Nick Crane on a relentless quest for truth in the face of corruption and betrayal. Get your copy of Rogues & Patriots today and start on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a world where the line between hero and villain blurs, and only the brave dare to challenge the status quo.

Critical Acclaim for Rogues & Patriots:

“Nick Crane is the kind of guy you can count on. He’s smart, tough, and persistent, a throwback to the classic American PI, in the mold of Marlowe and Spade, the kind of guy who runs into the burning building rather than hit the fire alarm. So, be prepared to buckle up for this wild ride.” —Charles Salzberg, Three-Time Shamus Award nominee, author of Man on the Run, and winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award

“In Rogues & Patriots, LA PI Nick Crane’s courage and cunning are put to the test as he battles sinister super patriots. A heart-pounding tale of espionage, friendship, and one man’s unwavering resolve against dark forces.” —Michael D. Sellers, award winning-writer and director of Eye of the Dolphin

“Patrick H. Moore has written a book to savor––vivid characters and crackling, high-voltage dialogue… Moore is a master of poetic detail that captures the era’s howling rage while creating a dark and menacing mood.” —John Nardizzi, PI of the year and Shamus award finalist for The Burden of Innocence

Rogues and Patriots by Patrick H. Moore is fast-paced, taught, and lean. Moore has evolved into a seasoned and uncompromising author who crafts stories that so ingrain themselves into your psyche, that it’s darn impossible to put his books down.” —Max Myers, award-winning author, screenwriter and film director

“Moore has produced a thought-provoking and suspenseful thriller as PI Nick Crane squares off against a creepy cabal of paramilitarists intent on taking power. Set against the intensifying political divides of our time, Rogues and Patriots builds the action and plot twists with masterful, page-turning precision while offering an insider’s portrayal of the investigator’s world and the desperate, colorful characters who inhabit it.” —John Brown, Los Angeles private investigator

“LA PI Nick Crane is in serious trouble. A gang of alt-right aristocrats are trying to destroy him. Thank God he has friends; he will need every one of them. Luckily, Crane is the king of stealth. He will dig deep to draw on every ounce of strength, courage, and cunning that he possesses. All this in order to survive and beat back the evil that threatens our country.” ––Ellen Sanders, reader of great fiction

“Patrick H. Moore enthralls us once again, taking us on another mesmerizing tour of America’s underbelly with our favorite private eye, Nick Crane. This story cooks from beginning to end as Nick Crane thrills us with his inimitable panache.” —Kirk Sanders, Silicon Valley technologist
