Please enjoy my new book as you examine a few questions like:
What are the attributes of a good man or woman? Why we should cherish our family? Whose advice should we accept? Can an absent man lead his family – and can a woman lead alone? Is the judicial system for handling family separation in alignment with God’s law and judgement? What are the indicators of a pending divorce - and how can you prevent it? How to detect true love? When should parents discipline - and how to do it correctly? When is the appropriate time for children to leave the nest? Expressed in an endearing letter to my children, Dear Son exposes my vulnerabilities as I express my feelings due to the loss of my children. As I navigate my struggles, I began to understand the importance of putting God first. This is my sincere journey of love and obedience as I share my experiences of life separated from my family.

Family secrets become a blackmailer’s deadly weapon in this pulse-pounding thriller by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of No Good Deed.

The shocking suicide of Beth Daniels’s father—a prominent surgeon—has thrown the FBI agent into a tailspin. But when Beth heads to Saint Augustine, Florida, for the funeral, she’ll need more than the emotional support of her boyfriend, retired detective Jon Lancaster. She’ll need his gut instinct for solving a mystery.

No sooner do they arrive than suspicions are aroused. There’s the pair of Russians who seem to be watching every move the family makes. A final, cryptic phone call Martin Daniels made to his granddaughter. Strange blood evidence on his estate. More than $1 million missing from Martin’s account. And his cell phone, wiped clean, along with clues to a double life. To Beth, it’s disturbingly clear: the man she loved was a stranger.

As she and Jon delve into Martin’s past, they have no idea where the secrets will take them. Or how dangerous it will be to expose the conspiracies, the cover-ups, and the terrible truths of Martin’s life—and death.

Kirkus Reviews - "A somber, disturbing mystery fused with a scathing look at the fashion industry. Mangin writes in a confident, razor-edged style."

Condom dresses and space helmets have debuted on fashion runways.
A dead body becomes the trend when a coat made of human skin saunters down fashion’s biggest stage. The body is identified as Annabelle Leigh, the teenager who famously disappeared over a decade ago from her boyfriend’s New York City mansion.

This new evidence casts suspicion back on the former boyfriend, Cecil LeClaire. Now a monk, he is forced to return to his dark and absurd childhood home to clear his name. He teams up with Ava Germaine, a renegade ex-model. And together, they investigate the depraved and lawless modeling industry behind Cecil’s family fortune.

They find erotic canes, pet rats living in crystal castles, and dresses made of crushed butterfly wings. But Cecil finds more truth in the luxury goods than in the people themselves. Everyone he meets seems to be wearing a person-suit. Terrified of showing their true selves, the glitterati put on flamboyant public personas to make money and friends. Can Cecil find truth in a world built on lies?

In high fashion modeling, sex trafficking is the most exclusive accessory.
