Robbie Farris stabbed his junior college professor twenty-seven times.

At his arraignment, Robbie pulls a gun and escapes. After his mother is found murdered in her shabby house trailer, Robbie’s lawyer, Jimmy O’Brien, is led into the seemingly unrelated worlds of high-profile, religious evangelism and old-fashioned Mojave Desert borax mining.

Jimmy fights the clock, the cops, and the DA in his effort to find and return Robbie before he himself is charged with Section 187-murder in the first degree.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the title “The Brimstone Murders”. What I got was a fast-paced, gripping mystery set in Southern California over thirty years ago. The plot kept me guessing. I knew next to nothing about the setting, so Mr. Sherratt’s descriptions were enlightening. I was very pleased to see this book is part of a series, so I can follow Jimmy on more cases.


This was an exciting fast paced mystery. Hated it to end. The perfect book to read on a long flight or on vacation relaxing. Would highly recommend this book!


I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it! It held my interest from page one. The language, the body language, the understated humor, the characterization, the whole sense that I’m in the presence of Mickey Spillane, Broderick Crawford, Jack Webb … this one needs a MOVIE ! Can’t wait to pick it up again tonight …


Give me more of this author’s work! He is “spot on” with page after page of riveting suspense and thrill. Hated for it to end but loved the ending. Kudos and more Jeff. You’ve more than earned your place in the realm of awesome story telling. Keep it up. I can’t wait to get the next one!!!!


I thoroughly enjoy this book and look forward to others. Great story line and interesting characters. It kept me guessing right until the end.
