In David Scott’s mystery novel “Help Wanted” (published by AuthorHouse), two friends must use Sherlock Holmes-style deductive skills to track down a serial killer.

Peter Dole and Darcy Garcia are friends, sometimes more than friends. Peter, a sports writer, and Darcy, a police analyst, share a long commute into Los Angeles. When they meet the Laskys for dinner one night, their relationship turns a corner.

An excerpt from “Help Wanted”:

“Peter used his reporter’s skills of observation and studied Bill Lasky. He had a severely lined face that went beyond his chronological age. His wife was nondescript. Beneath a seemingly bon home demeanor Peter sensed that Lasky had an unpleasant story to tell. ‘Peter, it is Peter right?’ Peter nodded his head up and down in affirmation. ‘Peter, what do you do for a living?’ Peter eyed the man. ‘I’m a sports writer. I write about sports. Basketball, baseball, football, hockey, you name it, if you can bet on it I write about it.’

Soon enough Peter and Darcy are on the trail of serial killer. As they get closer and closer to determining the truth, they find themselves growing closer and closer emotionally – long years of quiet tension and warm friendship soon lead to something more.

Can the pair catch the murderer before he disappears forever?
