About Never in Ink

Anthony DiNetto has been under Miami-Dade County police surveillance for several months, and authorities fear he's about to unleash a sophisticated criminal scheme to rake in millions. The problem is, they don't know what it is. Celebrated private investigators Claire Caswell and Gaston “Guy” Lombard are commissioned to unravel the mystery of his underhanded plan before it's too late. As they follow the suspect on a lightning-fast trip across Italy, Switzerland, and France, the sleuths are met with an unexpected accident and quickly learn that life-threatening peril lurks around every corner. When a criminal will do anything to guard his secret, Caswell and Lombard take on their greatest challenge yet to discover the truth. Never in Ink holds the reader captive from start to finish in this tale of disguises, deception, and danger.

Praise for Never in Ink

"Never in Ink is a clever, classy, and polished tale that adds glitz and glamour to the hardboiled private eye genre. Marilyn Jax offers the kind of strong plotting and colorful locales not seen in her more noirish contemporaries. She is every bit the equal of Sandra Brown and Nora Roberts, as well, serving up a steamy, red-hot tale with plenty of sizzle on the side."

—Jon Land, best-selling author of The Tenth Circle


“In Never in Ink, Jax gives the reader yet another can’t-put-down mystery. The storyline pits one man's desire to hide his secret against the private investigators' hunger to uncover it. This battle of wills will keep you reading through the night. Five-star read!” 

—Jordana Green, host of The Jordana Green Show, WCCO Radio


“With mystery novels, nothing is ever as it seems, nor should it be—and Never in Ink has a never-ending well of surprises. Well-developed characters and a fast-paced, suspenseful plot will keep the reader itching for more.”
