Survive the Sword


Nicodemus Dean is no detective. He doesn’t even play one on TV. He has a successful business as a stage combat trainer and he doesn’t need any more drama in his life. But he may not have much of a choice when the wife of a murder victim turns out to be a fan from his short-lived movie career.

When he is hired by the police to get close to the victim, Nicodemus reluctantly listens to his conscience – and his wallet. Writing the plot to an action movie is easy. But when the reality of comforting a friend and catching a killer forces Nicodemus to get too involved for comfort, he may find a whole new definition to what it means to survive by the sword.
