Ronald Higgins

Colton James was a New York City Policeman. His motto was always "Give an underdog a step up in life." Thanks to a sizeable trust fund left by his family, he quit the city police, and after ten years, he moved out west and opened his investigation agency and got his P.I license in Los Angeles. He also bought himself a beautiful Grand Banks, 42-foot twin diesel engines Yacht. He Loved living on it and called it "The Who Done It."

The first client was Mrs. Gloria Cambell, whose husband was killed in a plane crash. Not just any plane crash but Flight 93 on 9/11. It was just faith that put him on that flight at that time. Before Charles went on that faithful flight, He told his wife Gloria that she would leave town and go into hiding if anything happened to him. He tried to get his brother away from a small-time thug in Philly. His name was Albert Gardeano. So, when the plane crashed, she followed his instructions and went to Los Angeles. When Gloria arrived, she rented a condo down at Marina Del Rey. Then she got word from her husband's brother. He had said Mr. Gardeano had moved here because it was closer to his work. He had an office in North Hollywood, on Lankershim Boulevard. Things were Hot in Philly, so he moved the business to L.A.

Shortly after she moved into the Condo, she saw a couple of men following her around. They look familiar to her. She recognized them as the men she saw in her husband's office back in Philly. She went hunting for a P.I. that could help her. She finds a Private Detective that lives on a boat in Marino, where she rented a condo, and the journey begins.

About the Author

Higgins, Ronald: - I was born in Johnson City Tennessee and grew up in Brooklyn New York. I started writing in 1981 and have been writing ever since. I'm retired and living in Hampton Tenn. That is just outside Johnson City. I love writing. Before I was a writer, I was an Actor. I've done over sixty stage plays and 3 movies and one soap. I spent 30 years in Los Angeles. I tried breaking into the movie industry and auditioned for Happy Days back in the seventies. Because I didn't have an agent I couldn't get in the business. I finally gave it up in 1981 and started writing.
