New from Keith Donnelly: Three Dragons Doomed; Three Deuces Down in paperback

Three Dragons Doomed by Keith DonnellyWhen foul play happens in East Tennessee, there’s only one detective to call.

Gumshoe Donald Youngblood is back in the fifth of author Keith Donnelly’s Donald Youngblood mysteries, Three Dragons Doomed. The new hardcover arrives just in time for the first paperback release of Donnelly’s first Youngblood novel, Three Deuces Down.

In Three Dragons Doomed, Youngblood must solve two cases: discovering the identity of a long-buried body while at the same time stopping a serial killer’s murderous spree. The latter case quickly becomes personal when the serial killer CJK wants a showdown with Youngblood himself.

In Three Deuces Down, Wall Street shark turned private detective Donald Youngblood gets his first real case when he’s hired to find a missing heiress. But the case is complicated by Youngblood’s unhappy girl friend, a beautiful blond police officer, a New York mob boss, a troublesome bodyguard, and a killer on the loose gunning for Youngblood and his friends.

Both books use the rich detail of Donnelly’s hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee and the surrounding East Tennessee area.

On Amazon, a reader raves that Donnelly’s Three Devils Dancing, the third book, “takes the reader on a thrill ride until its conclusion. Don’t miss this book!” Midwest Book Review calls Donnelly’s fourth book, Three Deadly Drops, “an exciting mystery that will prove hard to put down … much recommended.”

Three Dragons Doomed will be out in August, and Donnelly is already working on his sixth Donald Youngblood book. Three Deuces Down is now available in paperback and ebook from NewSouth Books, Amazon, or your favorite bookstore.
