The Deputy Joe Series
Sequel to Hard Fall
James Buchanan




Right guy. Wrong time.


Deputy Joe Peterson understood the risks when he got involved with ex-con Kabe Varghese. He didn't, however, see fit to warn Kabe. Now, in the middle of searching for the killer of a local boy, he has to contend with his career and his relationship spinning out of control. Solving the case may be easier than repairing broken trust.

Laying Ghosts
A Deputy Joe Novel
James Buchanan



Joe and Kabe must lay the ghosts of the past and bring closure to a family scarred by loss to move forward in their life together.


Some families are haunted by tragedy. Some people are haunted by their pasts. Some men are haunted by who they are. Joe Peterson is haunted by all three. His parents' return from their mission, combined with a family reunion, forces Joe's kin to deal with his new life: out of the Mormon Church, out of the closet, and living with his lover Kabe. When a decades-old murder of a child lands on Joe's desk, digging into it dredges up long buried truths and festering secrets about folks Joe thought he knew -- including Kabe. Joe and Kabe must lay the ghosts of the past and bring closure to a family scarred by loss to move forward in their life together.



Requiem In Leather
A Deputy Joe Novel
James Buchanan



Life, Death, Love, Pain, Addiction and Redemption: Joe finds them all when he tracks the missing lover of Kabe's former Dom in San Francisco.


The wilds of San Francisco are a long way from the rural-Utah beat of Deputy Joe Peterson.


Kabe's former Dom, the man who protected him in prison, dies and Kabe, along with Jack's other boys, returns to The City to pay their respects. Joe wonders where he fits in after seeing Kabe at home, with the family and friends he left behind. When he agrees to help track down one of the missing boys he can't understand Kabe's aversion to his getting involved.



The Family Eternal
A Deputy Joe Book
James Buchanan



When the body of a young woman is found in a burning rental cabin, Deputy Joe Peterson and newly minted Fire Inspector Kabe Varghese must learn to work together to find out who she is and why she died.


Folks will tell you that family is second only to God in Utah. But what brings strength to some can sow sorrow with others.


On a bleak winter morning, a young woman's corpse smolders in the remains of a burned rental cabin. Clues to her identity are rarer than frozen choke-cherries in the Utah backcountry. Deputy Joe Peterson, assisted by Kabe Varghese in his first case as a fire inspector trainee, doggedly hunts for who she is and why she died. As they sink deeper into the investigation, Joe struggles with how his life is now personally and professionally intertwined with Kabe's.


Outed, excommunicated and disciplined because of the man he found love with; the last year of Joe's life has careened like an avalanche toward an abyss. Is doom inevitable? Or is the best chance to live surrendering to the fall?
