Stephen Lee Stanley, a mechanical engineer and bivocational pastor living in Reno, Nevada with his wife, Rosa, an Irish Wolfhound named Darcy of the shades of Pemberly and her sister, Prieta the Chihuahua, has completed his new book “Cobalt Blues”: a fast-paced and suspenseful drama following a spiritually compromised private detective and his convoluted path toward redemption.

Johnny Cobalt is not just another down-on-his-luck PI with a bad attitude to blame for his hard-knock life. He’s a Christian in compromise who needs to learn that submission to Christ is the only way out of his problems. And problems are what he has in spades: cops he can’t or won’t trust and who don’t trust him, a partner he can trust professionally but not morally, a girl he loves but whom he keeps pushing away, and a gangster he has sold his soul to but whom he must find a way to protect himself and those he cares about from. Cobalt is singing the blues until he learns to surrender.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Stephen Lee Stanley’s engrossing book is a spiritually thought-provoking and engrossing novel for fans of detective fiction.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Cobalt Blues” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
