By Ben DeWitt
Floyd Carter was one of the best homicide detectives in Detroit. Coming out of the closet didn't
change his ability, only his beat. He was the Gay Crimes Division. When one of Detroit's best is murdered outside a gay establishment,
Detective Carter is assigned the high profile case, getting stuck with Jefferson Davis Treat, retired wide receiver for the Detroit
Lions as his unofficial partner. Their investigation leads them into the underground world of international prescription drug traffic,
pornography and the sadistic underbelly of the people who profit from it. It becomes an international urban war between organized,
vicious criminals and the law enforcement agents who find the Graveyard Grove.
Only a well-traveled native of El Paso, Texas
could write the mystery/adventure story that comes directly from the headlines of the border city's newspaper. Even the FBI had questions
for Ben DeWitt when the mass graves in Juarez were discovered shortly after Graveyard Grove was published by OSO Press LLC.

From our readers:
"...DeWitt's specialty is character development and political intrigue, and he delivers these strengths in
abundance in Graveyard Grove. Bennie Myers is DeWitt's most interesting character yet and her strong personality and intense sexuality
give this book a great deal of bite. The interplay between Floyd Carter and Jefferson Davis Treat is always interesting and honest.
If you're looking for a book that captures its plot and players to perfection, Graveyard Grove is the book for you." David, Chicago,
"...DeWitt captures much of the continuing conflict and flavor of El Paso, Texas, the location for much of the action in
Graveyard Grove. Although both Mexican and U.S. officials may be annoyed by the storyline, it clearly is more authentic than what
is published in the news or seen on CNN...." Alan, El Paso, TX

"DeWitt is a fresh voice in the action genre, giving those who read many action novels a new angle, and those who don't a reason to
start. Let's hope we see more of his talent in the coming years." The American, June 10, 2000
