Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling first book in the Erin O'Reilly Mysteries series.

Erin learned a lot from her partner: stay alert, follow your nose, and once you've got your teeth in them, never let go.

It’s tough working nights with the NYPD. The crime rate is high, the hours are terrible, and forget about a personal life. So, when Officer O’Reilly and her K-9 Rolf switch over to the day shift, things look up. She’s even able to find time for a new boyfriend.

But when the theft of a priceless painting from the Queens Museum leaves a fellow police officer dead, Erin and her four-legged partner find themselves dealing with dangerous criminals, sleazy art dealers, and obstructive detectives in a race to capture the killers...and just maybe bring closure to a 75-year-old crime.

Great mystery, strong female lead and a dog..

...3 of my favorite things in a good book! Steven Henry's Black Velvet is an delightful police mystery set in Queens, New York. The story centers on Erin O'Reilly a smart K-9 beat cop and her partner Rolf a police dog who is as brave and as loyal as only a dog can be. Henry's characters are totally believeable and soon the reader is drawn into the world of museums, art theft and a multitude of possible suspects. The author keeps you riveted to the story, trying hard to guess the villian right up to the final shoot out. Kristi Alsip reads the story, perfectly voicing the many characters and the multitude of accents you would expect from a multi- national art world. I can hardly wait to start book 2!

Book 1 hooks you and is difficult to put down.

The trials and tribulations of being a LEO. The K-9 is not given human thinking and actions. Pretty much spot on. politics of the PD ring a true tone also. Kristi Alsip is darn good with all the dialects and voices. So far I have purchased the first three Audible and Kindle releases in this series. Money well spent.

Black Velvet

I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to the next book in this new series. The story line was believable & the main characters left me wanting to learn more about them. The police dog was just the icing on the cake as I am an animal lover.
