Review: "Twinkle Toes: Dev Haskell Short Mystery" by Mike Faricy

Dev Haskell was still asleep when his cellphone went off in the front pocket of his jeans where he had left them on the floor. He had much rather be back asleep in the bed next to Heidi, but the woman on the cell phone just keeps talking. She gradually makes inroads into his sleep fogged brain and he slowly realizes a girl he knew from high school long ago could be in real trouble.…

Stealing King Tut's Dagger

According to a report I read in Al Arabiya, researchers relying on “virtual autopsy” have discovered that King Tut was not as pretty as his golden mask. He had buck teeth and a severe limp, among other things.  But you got to admit, he was most certainly a flashy dude.
