An Unusual Rash Of Murders Leads Hamish To Develop A Romantic Interest.
A Rash Of Murders Leads Unambitious Small Town Lawyer Hamish O’Halloran To Embark On A Dangerous Investigation On His Own Leading To Peril And Even Romance.

When Patrolman Wayland North finds a homeless man rifling the already empty pockets of a corpse in an alley, luckless lawyer Hamish O'Halloran is appointed to represent him. The strange saga that follows portrays the squalid underbelly of the idyllic little town of Pine Ridge, North Carolina as two more murdered corpses are discovered. O'Halloran becomes dangerously involved as Detectives Crouse and Frank X. Farrell work with little evidence to connect the murders and uncover the nefarious secrets of Mother Nature's, a restaurant/bar cum brothel, whose subliminal connection to the murders is exposed. A satirical parody rife with vignettes of pitiable and pathetic courtroom characters as O'Halloran plies his trade, this highly amusing story, characterized by pathos and bathos, is a delightful follow-up to the first Hamish O’Halloran mystery Just Add Water.

“...vivid paced and often hilarious tale of murder and mayhem...Once you start reading it you will not want to put it down or stop laughing.” -Thomas Keith (District Attorney (ret) Forsyth County, NC (Winston-Salem) .

“... the emphasis is on unique and shady characters. You feel like you are very familiar with the town of Pine Ridge and the strange denizens who make it come alive and intriguing.”—Joseph L.S. Terrell, Author of the Outer Banks-set Harrison Weaver Mystery Series.

After service with the U.S. Army’s Green Berets, Tanis was a company commander in combat in Viet Nam when his career in the military was brought to an abrupt end by a North Viet Namese mortar round landing next to his right foot, amputating his legs. Thereafter, he attended graduate school to try to compensate for a poor academic record, a consequence of the distraction of a basketball scholarship at Lehigh University. Graduating from Wake Forest University Law School, he began his career by prosecuting criminal cases, followed by thirty years as a trial lawyer, with a stint as District Court Judge. District Court was a fertile field for many of the humorous anecdotes he includes in his novels. Writing, then, is his third career.
Trying dozens of narcotics cases in the State and Federal Courts in North Carolina during his thirty year career, Tanis saw the seedy side of the drug underworld first hand, along with the devastating effect on everyone involved in these conspiracies, the dealers, the users, the mules and everyone else on the periphery, and their families.
He has served as Chairman of the North Carolina Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program appointed by President Reagan, the Governor’s Advocacy Council for Person’s with Disabilities, appointed by Governor James Martin, co-founder of the Triad Viet Nam Veterans and has served on various community boards, and church councils.
A member of the North Carolina Writers Network and Hampton Roads Writers, he won a short story contest put on by the North Carolina State Bar, published in their Journal. JUST ADD WATER is his first published novel.
 He is married to Stefanie Weidinger, a retired Instructor in the Department of German and Russian at Wake Forest University, has two adult children, and resides on North Carolina’s northern Outer Banks.
