Review: "After The Fire: A Bill Travis Mystery" by George Wier

For Bill Travis, financial advisor and sometimes a bit more, everything started with Sol Gunderson’s goats. The man has ten areas of land out of east of Austin, Texas. On the land he raises 40 or 50 Spanish goats. Now one is dead at the base of a hill on his property. It does not take Bill Travis long as he stared at the dead goat to figure out that something really bad and unnatural had happened to that goat.…See More

Review: "Li’l Tom and the Pussyfoot Detective Bureau: The Case of the Parrots Desaparecidos" by Angela Crider Neary

Li’l Tom is a kitten that is doing pretty good for himself these days as he heads up the elite Pussyfoot Detective Bureau of Telegraph Hill located in San Francisco. The hill is a great place to have a business as well as his residence because there are so many places to hide and do cat things. Because the humans of the San Francisco Police Department aren’t interested, the Pussyfoot Detective Bureau helps animals with their problems such as missing rubber toys, catnip traffickers, and…See More

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: "Dead Broke In Jarret Creek: A Samuel Craddock Mystery" by Terry Shames

Former Police Chief Samuel Craddock didn’t want to be police chief again or investigate any more murders. But, the last few months have been kind of rough in the small south Texas town of Jarret Creek. There were some murders and Samuel Cradock, bum knee and all, got dragged into solving them. Deep in the grip of winter Jarrett Creek is about to have still more problems.

 

The town is bankrupt. The night before there had been an emergency meeting of several of the town’s…

Review: "The Setup Man" by T. T. Monday

The appeal for me is the same as it ever was. Playing a child’s game for money can be hard on your self-respect. Even now, I’m still not a doctor or a diplomat, but I’m more than I was. I’m more than a guy on a bench cracking seeds, waiting for a lefty to bat in the eighth.

God help me if a man’s not entitled to that. (Page 5)
