Review: "TUSSINLAND" by Mike Monson

If you have read Mike Monson’s work before such as The Scent Of New Death and What Happens In Reno you pretty know what to expect with Tussinland. You expect some seriously flawed human beings, plenty of violence, some sex, and a crime spree or two. Tussinland delivers on all that while…See More

Spend some time with "Wink Of An Eye" by Lynn Chandler Willis

Growing up Michael “Gypsy” Moran could not wait to leave the isolated town of Wink in far west Texas. He would not be back now if not for a problem in Vegas that required him to make a very hasty departure. A problem that very well might have gotten him killed if he had stuck around.  A problem that came about because of his work as a private investigator.…See More

Review: "Effective Immediately" by Evan Ronan

It has been four months of mind numbingly boring work since Morale Was Down. Nothing remarkable has gone on as things have been their usual daily boring routine. Avoid as much work as possible and stay out of the eyes of the bosses is still the basic plan and it works. Today is Friday and that means, unsurprisingly, that reports are down. Reports are always down on Fridays. You have also just…See More

Review: "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" by Gail Farrelly

8 pm and working on a broken sink in “Carl’s Car Repair Shop” isn’t a lot of fun. It is New Year’s Eve which makes the job on the industrial sink a little bit harder. At the same time with a little girl and a spouse waiting at home at least the hefty fee makes it all worth it. Everything is okay until Police Chief Rob…See More

Review: "The Burning Room" by Michael Connelly

The end is near for LAPD Detective Harry Bosch. He has less than a year to the end of his career and isn’t sure what the future holds. His latest case in the Open-Unsolved Unit (cold cases) features a victim who just died though he was shot over ten years ago. The bullet that ripped into Orlando Merced that fateful day did not kill him outright. Instead it lodged into his spinal column making him a paraplegic and a repeat customer of the medical system. He also became a political cause for a…See More

Review: "Jack Hardway's Crime Magazine-- Vol. 1 Issue 1" edited by Jack Hardway

The first issue of Jack Hardway’s Crime Magazine is an intriguing mix of short stories, music, a video, and a novel. The novel is Black Wings Has My Angel by Elliot Chase. I previously reviewed Jack’s version and highly recommend it if you have not read it. The audio recording is the 1945 broadcast of Sorry, Wrong Number as produced by Suspense! The…See More

Review: "Raining Willie & Cranked" by Bill Crider

Karla Ercums claimed the pink amethyst ring on her finger was handed down to her by her grandmother. Drug Cop Ray Tabor is sure the ring is stolen though he can’t prove it. Law enforcement can easily prove she stole other pieces of jewelry while working for Kleen Maid Service. Her actions as a thief as well as her desire for a shorter prison sentence means Tabor can use her as a snitch. In an area where everybody knows everybody else and most folks are related by blood, marriage, or both, Tabor…See More

Review: "Proof Positive: A Joe Gunther Novel" by Archer Mayor

Ben Kendall was known to be a hoarder. The piles of debris outside his home tended to indicate that. Anyone who looked inside would know it as well, but he allowed very few access. Once he finally made it home from Vietnam he had wanted to be left alone all these years. For the most part he had been. That meant he also did not get the help he needed to deal with the trauma of war and what he saw and experienced there as a combat photographer. …See More

Review: "Morale Was Down" by Evan Ronan

Morale is always down and the complaining is always up no matter where you work. In this case you work in an office on the 3rd floor. You know things are not better anywhere else because the green pastures elsewhere you hear about through the rumor mill don’t exist. Besides, if you were somewhere else you would not have a…See More

Review: "Further Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles" by Edward A. Grainger

The latest in the series of excellent westerns is a collection of five previously published tales. Further Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles as written by Edward Grainger contains snapshots of Cash and Gideon at various times of their lives. Their age may have slowed them down or worse, but the legacy of their actions lives on long afterwards. Known by many as the “Outlaw Marshal” because of the way he often delivered justice, Cash Laramie has been gone for quite a while as “Missing”…See More

Review: "Redemption: A Noah Milano Novelette" by Jochem Vandersteen

Howard Pratt would not stand out if you saw him on the street as he is just an average 36 year old guy. An average guy with hair a little too long and a scar at the corner of his mouth. An average guy who twenty some odd years ago killed another 16 year old boy after he tortured him. Pratt went to an adult facility, did his time, and since then has had a clean record.

 

Noah Milano, son of the most notorious crime boss in Los Angeles, is willing to consider being Pratt’s…

Review: "Guns of Brixton" by Pual D. Brazill

Getting good help is always a problem whether in the real world at the store or repair shop, or in the fictional world. Kenny Rogan and Big Jim Lawson were supposed to go get a brief case from a man known as Half Pint Harry Hebb. Now, his name could be changed to Brainless Half-Pint Harry Hebb as Big Jim just used a sawed off shotgun to permanently change the man’s cognitive skills in a highly negative way. While Big Jim considers the matter “a little accident” Kenny vehemently disagrees and…
