Who is Alexander Steele?



Alexander Steele is a fictitious, street savvy, African American detective who grew up on the rough streets of Philly.  Forget everything you know about gritty, skirt cashing, chain-smoking, broke detectives of the past.  Steele (as his friends call him) is a unique breed of detective.  When Steele is in the danger zone he fly’s solo but behind the scenes he is often relies on the computer expertise from his best friend/hacker Stan.  With Stan’s assistance he has solved dozens of cases from Montreal to Mexico.  


After years of car chases and matching wits, bullets as well as verbal jabs with drug kingpins, murderers and terrorist the thirty something private investigator has been prodded by his longtime girlfriend into get out of the business before its too late.


As difficult as it has been at times the sexy P.I. has stayed true to his choice of a monogamous relationship with interior decorator Shakia.  In an attempt trade in his dangerous lifestyle for one with a much lower causality rate Steele opened up a posh member’s only club in the Mt. Airy section of Philly, an unusual choice for a man who doesn’t drink or smoke.  Steele’s quirky, hefty; childhood friend Sugar Bear is the club manager.  Sugar Bear is a competent manager but his attraction to astrology and conspiracy theories often annoys Steele. 


Shakia’s relief quickly turns into frustration when the back booth at Steele’s popular club turns into his new base of operation.  Steele is approached by a never ending stream of murder mysteries cases, some too good for him to pass up. It becomes apparent that his reputation will not die as quickly as the enemies he has put in the local cemeteries.
