A runaway teen comes to Cartwright for help. She claims to have evidence that will clear her boyfriend of murder but he's slated for execution in the next few hours. But can Cartwright beat the hangman's noose?
TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME, is the first in a collection of short stories featuring James Cartwright, a private investigator who plies his trade on the backstreets of Detroit.
Cartwright is cynical, resourceful and tough. He lives by his own moral code—a code that he believes helps him distinguish right from wrong, fact from fiction, and truth from lies. But as Cartwright discovers with every case, it's one thing to believe in the code and quite another to stand by it.
