About the Author

Debbi Mack is the New York Times bestselling author of four novels in the Sam McRae Mystery Series, an award-winning young adult novel, Invisible Me, and a thriller called The Planck Factor. Debbi's latest mystery, Damaged Goods, introduces a new protagonist, Marine veteran and unlicensed investigator Erica Jensen. A Derringer nominee, Debbi has written and published several short stories. A former Mystery Scene Magazine reviewer, Debbi also hosts a podcast called the Crime Cafe where she interviews other crime, suspense, and thriller authors. Debbi has also written a feature film screenplay that made the semi-finals in the 2016 Scriptapalooza contest, as well as a few short scripts and a television pilot. Her first novel has been optioned by a Maryland producer, and Debbi wrote the first draft of the screenplay. A Queens, NY native, Debbi is a retired lawyer, who's also worked as a journalist, librarian, and freelance writer/researcher. She lives in Columbia, MD, with her husband and their cat. Debbi enjoys walking, reading, travel, movies and espresso-not necessarily in that order. You can find her online at


"Full of tension and suspense from cover-to-cover, Riptide is a cracking good read."
-- Leighton Gage, author of the Chief Inspector Mario Silva Series

"The plot was tight and author Debbi Mack kept me guessing whodunnit to the very end."
-- Karen Cantwell, bestselling author of the Barbara Marr Mystery Series

"Sam McRae is a nosy, brassy, sarcastic pain in the ass. Which is why you'll love her."
-- Frank Zafiro, author of the River City Crime Novels

"Get dragged under by Riptide. If you're not already a fan of the Sam McRae series, you will be after this read."
-- Benjamin Sobieck, author of Cleansing Eden and The Glass Eye.

"Sam's sleek, sarcastic narration propels this satisfying legal caper, which also manages to score points about lingering regional racial prejudice, providing a sad reminder that justice doesn't always prevail unless the just take action. Another winner from the pen of Debbi Mack, author of Least Wanted and Identity Crisis."
-- W.D. Gagliani, author of the Nick Lupo Series

"Sam's attempt to help a friend who's been charged with murder leads her into an insular world where the secrets are so thick they create their own 'riptide.' A great read."
-- Timothy Hallinan, Edgar-nominated author of the Poke Rafferty and Junior Bender thrillers

"Our hero must bring to bear all of her considerable investigative skills as she unwinds this tightly drawn mystery, which is sure to have you hooked until the satisfying end."
-- Lawrence Kelter, bestselling author of the Stephanie Chalice Mystery Series

"Sam McRae is back--and just as sassy, smart and loyal as ever."
-- Donna Fletcher Crow, author of the Monastery Murders Series
