Do you like your reporters old school?
Fearless, willing to risk their life for the truth, and a bit complicated?
Then JP Warner is your man.
JP is the dashing international correspondent for GNZ News, who appears to have it all. But a life-changing event causes him to leave the industry and his globetrotting lifestyle, to seek solace in the small Connecticut town he’d grown up in.
Home is where the heart is (specifically his lost love, Gwen Delaney), but it’s also where his worst nightmare is lurking. And when JP peers into the eyes of Officer Jones, he recognizes the look, and the trouble it represents.
Along with Gwen, and an unforgettable cast of characters, including the outrageous but lovable former pro wrestler Coldblooded Carter, JP races to cover the biggest story of his life. All while trying to save Jones’ next victim. Because this one is personal.
This fast-paced thriller is full of mystery, suspense, and romance. But the biggest praise has been for the genuine, memorable characters that suck you in and keep the pages turning well past your bedtime.
Read Officer Jones because you’ll love JP. Read it because you’ll hate him. Read it because you’ll want to find out what happens to him next!

Derek Ciccone is the author of 13 mystery/thriller novels.
His first book Painless, which explores a life without pain, reached #1 on Amazon UK in both the medical thriller and political thriller categories. It was also named a “Breakout Book” by Apple, which spotlights emerging authors.
His popular JP Warner series centers around an international journalist who leaves his dangerous world to return to the safety of home, only to find that danger has followed him. The first book in the series Officer Jones has over 700 five and four star reader reviews at Amazon, averaging 4.3 overall. Be sure to click on the Officer Jones page in the Amazon Book Store to see what these readers are saying about it. They are a much better judge, and less biased, than the author of this page!
His latest—the Joined Series—featuring the adventures Eliza and Christie Dunbar, twin sisters with a very unique bond, is now available. While he doesn’t want to hurt the feelings of his other books, whom he loves very much, Derek believes these are the best stories and characters he’s written so far. He’s confident you will as well.
Derek’s books are fast-paced, and filled with suspense, romance, and humor. But they are best known for their layered, memorable characters—the ones you still remember long after finishing the book. They’re also usually written in first-person and all about the stories, not himself, so it is really strange for him to be writing this personal bio in third-person!
Derek grew up in a small Connecticut town, similar to many of the settings in his stories. He has a degree in political science from Arizona State University, and was marketing director at an ad agency in his past life.
