Word Branch Publishing Releases E.E. William’s Edge-Of-Your-Seat Crime Drama, Tears in the Rain

September 26, 2014

“The blood on the floor is mine. The bullets in my head belong to someone else.”

Marble, NC, September 26, 2014(PressReleaseCircle) — These first lines of Tears in the Rain start readers on a fast-paced pursuit through the sweltering streets of Miami, Florida and the introduction to Noah Greene, a flawed hero who struggles with his own personal demons. The first book in the Noah Greene Mystery series establishes Greene as a slightly emotionally damaged, would-be detective who stumbles into both peril and intrigue. Ultimately Greene’s strong moral compass, that often puts other’s well being before his own, leads him to a tangled mystery that is both shocking and compelling. With unyielding tenacity, his investigative talents surprise even him as he uncovers the truth about Miami’s dirty little secrets.


After leaving his quiet middle class life, as well as his wife and son, the former insurance salesman, Noah Greene, finds himself in steamy Miami. Near broke and living in a rented office/bicycle shop, Greene fancies himself a hardboiled detective in the tradition of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe. His dream seems out of reach until, like a scene from a Bogey movie, a mysterious woman seeks him out to locate her missing brother. But as Noah begins to dig into the brother’s past, he finds himself in immersed in a political scandal and real estate scam that shakes Miami to its core and puts Noah, and anyone he comes in contact with, in grave danger.

William’s skill as a writer is evident in the pace and escalation of the story, and he draws on his past as a journalist to produce a snappy and concise narrative that creates a world of urgency and grittiness. Williams combines the smoky mystery of Dashiell Hammett’s characters and the twist and turns of a Gillian Flynn novel with Elmore Leonard’s self-deprecating humor to craft a hard-to-put-down novel.

The second book in the series, Tears of God, is also available through Word Branch Publishing’s online book shop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and book shops everywhere. Find out more at
