Body of work

 I've gained a lot of new readers lately, including some who only know me by my new pen name, Max Austin. But I'm a 20-year veteran with 25 books to my credit.

   Latest to hit the public eye is DUKE CITY SPLIT, a crime novel that is Max Austin's debut. DUKE CITY SPLIT was published this month by Alibi, the new mystery imprint at Random House. Next in the series, DUKE CITY HIT, is scheduled for December release.

It's been 20 years since my first novel, LONELY STREET, introduced bumbling private eye Bubba Mabry to the world. Since then, Bubba has starred in eight other stories and a Hollywood film.
Lots of mystery readers prefer to read series (and authors' work in general) in chronological order, so I thought I'd share my body of work with you. The ones with asterisks are the Bubba Mabry series.
