Trained in Japan's oldest combat-oriented martial art, Rico Lamoureux combines his expertise in self-defense with his passion for storytelling, the result being the gritty Crime thriller world of the Riker series.

With each fast-paced book comes a new case Riker must battle through, using his role as a private investigator to help bring justice to the world.

A theme the author truly believes in.

"There are too many people out there who are willing to inflict harm onto others for their own gain. Although I write to entertain, I aim to provoke thought as well. To engage, excite, and eblighten."
