Joe C Ellis: Introducing Weston Wolf, Outer Banks Detective

Joe C. Ellis is a popular author here on the Outer Banks- his best-selling murder series includes Murder on the Outer Banks, Murder at Whalehead, Murder at Hatteras, Murder at Ocracoke and most recently The Treasure of Porstmouth Island. Joe has been busy creating a new character- Outer Banks detective Weston Wolf- and is rolling him out in two new books- Roanoke Island Murders (which you know we love!!) and The Singer in the Sound

In Roanoke Island Murders: A Modern Retelling of the Maltese Falcon, Two unscrupulous antiquity dealers, Hugh Underdonk and Alfred Bacon, hope to get their hands on the Dare Diary, a long lost journal written by Eleanor Dare, one of the original members of Roanoke Island's Lost Colony. Detective Weston Wolf is drawn into this web of deception and murder by a beautiful woman who claims to be a descendant of Eleanor. As the bodies pile up, Wolf must untangle this web to save his own neck. In the spirit of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, Joe C. Ellis has weaved together a fast-paced noir detective novel set on the Outer Banks with a menagerie of unusual characters. This novel launches Book 1 of the Weston Wolf -- Outer Banks Detective Series.

Book 2 of the series is The Singer in the Sound: When a local fisherman hires Weston Wolf to find out what happened to his talented daughter, the savvy detective and his partner, Angie Stallone, discover a series of clues that lead to salacious crimes and celebrity scandal. Along the way, Wolf meets Freyja Beck, a unique and beautiful woman who was once an aspiring singer and actress. Her connection to the movie industry could be the key to unraveling the mystery of the missing girl and acquiring the evidence to nail one of Hollywood's most celebrated producers.
