Welcome to the Lt. Kate Gazzara Murder Files.

It was back in 2016 when author, Blair Howard, decided to spin off the then Sergeant Kate Gazzara from the wildly successful Harry Starke series. Kate had been Harry’s partner during his years as a senior homicide detective for the Chattanooga PD.

After he left the force in 2008, Kate came into her own.

She became a top detective and slowly rose through the ranks to captain in command of her own, small, but elite serious crimes squad.

Life for Kate was never easy. Over the years she had to deal with, not only horrific crimes and life-threatening situations, but sexual harassment, office politics, a hard-nosed police chief who’s never quite sure how to deal with her, and a series of partners, most of whom never really measured up to her exacting standards.


If you like strong women, impossible odds, and complex mysteries, then you’ll love this gripping series of police procedurals.


Jasmine is the first book in the Detective Kate Gazzara series.
