Recuse arrives, but then someone shoots at the paramedic and takes over the ambulance. White jumps into action and gets her body back as Ruby’s lasts words were autopsy and that she loved him. From the here it’s a sullen hunt to solve the mystery of Ruby’s killer and what her position as a U.S. Cultural Attache to Great Brittan has to do with it. While its book 3 in the Color Series, this book stands well on its own.
Daniel’s writing is realistic as we follow Sully in his mission to help find the woman he realizes he loved killer. While Don’t Stand Still is a crime thriller, it also is about how we can take life and people for granted. How fear and holding back can lead to regret.

You can’t help but not feel for him and get drawn into the story.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
From the pen of Jack O. Daniel....
I'm an observer of people and a story-teller. I sit and watch, and I listen. Listening not just to what's being said, but more importantly, to what's not being said. But life shouldn't just pass us by as we watch idly, so in every respect, I'm also a participant. Interacting with the characters who grace the pages of my books, although they were simply an amalgam of the various people I've come across That could be me silently watching you from across a crowded café as you sit drinking your coffee. Observing how you sniffed the aroma of the Arabica beans grounded and blended just for you by the barista behind the counter. Then, you drank it, closed your eyes to fully appreciate the tinge of bitterness in it. You smiled, pleased that it was made just right.
People make up the tapestry of life. So, you are my source of inspiration.
