BLACKOUT is here! Don't miss the latest Pete Fernandez Mystery


Blackout, my fourth Pete Fernandez Miami Mystery, is on sale today from Polis Books!

I'll keep this short and sweet, as I know I've already been bombarding you with news.

I'm very proud of Blackout - it's a book about dark obsessions, long-buried secrets bubbling back up to the surface and how we deal with the mistakes of our past. It features Pete trying to solve a decades-old cold case while facing off against a once-dormant, still-deadly Miami cult, and dealing with an ambitious and morally ambiguous Florida gubernatorial candidate. I hope you enjoy it.

You can read an excerpt from Blackout at Entertainment Weekly.

If you'd like to order the book, go here.

I'll be touring in support of Blackout. You can check out my schedule at the bottom of this email.

Thanks again for your support - couldn't do it without you!


And, in case you missed it, here's some very cool news about the Pete Fernandez novels.

Praise for BLACKOUT:

Named one of the most anticipated crime novels of 2018 by Literary Hub/CrimeReads, Mystery People and BookBub!

"Expertly weaving the past and present, Alex Segura masterfully cranks the tension while revealing the demons that both haunt P.I. Pete Fernandez and drive him forward. Blackout will hook you on Fernandez and Alex Segura. Let's have more, and soon."
―Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author of The Wanted

Blackout has everything that terrific detective fiction demands—a sharp, twisty plot full of shadowed corners, hot and humid streets, and brutal, yet convincing crimes. But it also delivers on the human level—showing characters at their most vulnerable, damaged, and desperate while demonstrating their powers of resilience and insisting on the possibility for redemption.” — Ivy Pochoda, acclaimed author of Wonder Valley

“Alex Segura is one of the writers who reminds me why I fell in love with PI fiction and wanted to write it.” ―Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of Sunburn

Blackout is cool, vivid—and poignant. In Alex Segura’s capable hands, Florida becomes a haunted landscape where hope can’t quite be eradicated. We’re with Pete Fernandez every step of the way.” — Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author of UNSUB and Into the Black Nowhere

"Alex Segura’s latest is dark, devious, and devastating. Deftly shifting through three distinct periods in time, he shows us the scars that never heal, while allowing for moments of grace. Blackout is, quite simply, a knockout. " — Hilary Davidson, Anthony Award–winning author of One Small Sacrifice

“With its smart dialogue and vivid settings, this series concentrates equally on the trajectory of Pete Fernandez’s life and the mysteries he tries to solve. From both perspectives, it’s fine crime fiction.” — Booklist

"Segura’s latest offers a mind-spinning mix of dark and darker elements – not to mention multiple literal head-blowing moments, and, part-way through, a super-shocking surprise." — Seattle Review of Books

"There is no question in my mind that Blackout is Segura's best to date." — Criminal Element

"Alex Segura’s career will now forever be delineated as before-Blackout and after-Blackout. This book is that good; you simply don’t want to miss it." — BOLO Books
