Smith and Weston
Crime Case Tales Vol. Two
by Doris Nickles

In the gritty world of River City, a new surge of crime threatens to drown the city in darkness. But this time, the corruption runs deeper, infesting the very heart of the justice system itself. Among those standing as the last line of defense are detectives Jordon Smith and Steve Weston, two of the city’s most tenacious and relentless investigators. As they delve into a treacherous labyrinth of crime, they are joined by a new partner, Detective Cindy Bishop, known simply as D. With a natural instinct for uncovering criminals and an unyielding courage that constantly puts her own life on the line, D proves to be a formidable if not fragile addition to the team. However, this crusade for justice is far from a simple battle against villains. The lines between their professional and personal lives blur, entangling the detectives in a web of emotions. As they confront the usual drug lords, kidnappers, and ruthless murderers, they must also grapple with their own feelings for each other and the haunting questions within themselves. In this pulse-pounding novel, trust is betrayed, alliances are tested, and hearts are laid bare. Will the determination of these seasoned investigators be enough to cleanse the city of its festering crime, or will the darkness seep into their souls, consuming them from within? River City’s fate hangs in the balance, and only the most resilient and resolute will emerge unscathed.

From an early age, Doris discovered solace and expression through all sorts of writing, drawing inspiration from her own experiences and emotions. Her literary journey began with Lighting the Heart: A Healing of the Soul, a collection of poetry, sonnets, and essays. Through this debut work, Doris navigated a series of personal crises with raw honesty and poetic grace, offering readers a glimpse into the depths of her heart. Building on this, Doris released Spiritual Reflections, a profound compilation of lessons gleaned from her spiritual journey.

In addition to writing, Doris is an accomplished nurse, the mother of three children, a certified counselor, and an ordained minister.
