New Release & Author Q&A

Happy New Year, my friends. I have news about my plans for the new year and some details about the forthcoming new release of book 7 in the Dickie Floyd Detective series.

A New Release

THE PROGRAM is the seventh and perhaps the most anticipated book in the Dickie Floyd series.

I had not planned to continue with the series, and began a spinoff series instead, the Rich Farris Detective series, the first book being THE OUTLAW. Then I took a break from the novels in order to finish and publish my memoir, NOTHING LEFT TO PROVE.

So it has been a while since we’ve had a new Dickie Floyd story, and the excitement has been steadily building since I first revealed that I was writing book 7 in the series.

Now we have a date, and it’s just around the corner!

A cold case. A hot gun. A charismatic convict with a story—if he can live long enough to tell it.

When Rudy Prada is pulled over for a traffic violation and a gun is found beneath the seat of his car, he risks his freedom—and even his life—by breaking the code of the streets and talking to the cops. And not just any “cops,” but the one who sent him to prison twice and shot him once in the process: L.A. Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Josefina Sanchez.

Josie and her partner Dickie Jones are already up to their holsters in unsolved murders when Prada is found with a gun. Josie is more than happy to send him back to the joint, but he convinces her that he’s innocent and that he has changed his life, leaving crime and gangs and his addiction to drugs and alcohol behind him.

But when the gun is found to have been used to murder an L.A. city councilman, all bets are off for the convict. Prada has no choice but to run, but it isn’t only the cops who are searching for him—someone else wants him dead.

The Program is book 7 in the highly acclaimed, best-selling, and award-winning Dickie Floyd Detective series. If you enjoy realistic police procedurals and unpredictable plot twists, you’ll love Danny R. Smith’s riveting crime novels.
