" exquisitely written page-turner. Tim Cole is a bright new star in the firmament of mystery and thriller writers."

Richard Armstrong, Author, The Don Con



A headless corpse tossed in a dumpster unites a small-town cop and a formidable retired lady spy to track a heartless killer.


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.


Also available for Nook at Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.

“Timothy Cole delivers a taut, smart crime thriller with characters so magnetic you’ll be craving their next case - in particular Dasha Petrov who is every bit as formidable as Jack Reacher, though she comes in a very different package."

Douglas Brunt, Author, The Ghosts of Manhattan and The Means
