The Skinvestigator Unleashes The Sunshine State Trilogy!


(Melbourne, Florida - September 22): Dermatologist detective series: The Skinvestigator now available on Kindle

The first novel in a new Florida noir trilogy, The Skinvestigator: Tramp Stamp has just become available for download on the Kindle,'s handy digital reader. The novel follows the adventures of Florida dermatologist turned detective, Dr. Harry Poe. Author Terry Cronin describes the story as both "an inside look at the world of dermatology" and "a mystery novel that quickly escalates into a medical/political thriller involving tattoos, illicit cosmetic surgery, and murder".

Ripped from today's headlines about "scalpel tourism" where Americans travel to foreign nations to get cheaper cosmetic surgery, Cronin's book has been described as "razor sharp"and "skincredible". Reviewers have said the drama is tense, and the humor snaps like a whip crack and that Dr. Harry Poe vibes authentic throughout. The print version of the novel is distributed by Atlas Books and is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Tower Books.

The next novel in the series is called The Skinvestigator: Rash Guard and will be released at the end of September. Cronin, who is known for creating the critically-acclaimed horror-adventure comic series, Students of the Unusual and writing for Indie Comics Magazine, took advance copies of this new novel with him to the San Diego Comic-Con this year. "I'm known as a comic book writer but I found that comic readers and genre fans also enjoy reading hard-boiled detective novels and pulp fiction." The new novel follows Doctor Poe as he tries to help the Miami Police with a new murder investigation involving surfers, syphilis, and the State department.

Cronin plans to complete The Sunshine State trilogy next year with the final novel entitled The Skinvestigator: Sunburn.
