Harry Devine, a private detective and former cop, has a love of scotch, cigars, and old Film Noir movies. Chelsea Woodstern is a true-crime blogger and podcaster with a troubled past and a reputation for being anti-law enforcement. When Chelsea shows up on Harry's doorstep asking for help in an investigation, Harry is immediately smitten, but soon finds himself in over his head. What started as an investigation into government corruption leads to extortion, bribery, kidnapping...and even murder.

      Now Chelsea must work with Harry and his old partner Jake to get to the bottom of a conspiracy that gets more widespread and more sinister the deeper they dig. Harry must fight through his depression, alcoholism, and feelings for Chelsea in order to do what's right. And Jake must try his damnedest to make sure no one else gets killed in the process.

      Exciting, charming, and funny, DEVINE'S PROVIDENCE by Stephen Reney is now available in paperback and on your Kindle, with more editions coming soon...and it's FREE for Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

...a captivating, funny, and intelligent read. [The] characters will charm their way into your heart while you wait to see who Providence will claim as her next victim.


A modern-day noir set in the historically beautiful, corrupt, and beautifully corrupt city of Providence had

me rooting for Harry Devine and dreaming of nights full of jazz and liquor.
