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.

Review: "Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot: A Jesse Stone Novel" by Reed Farrel Coleman

Paradise Police Chief Jesse Stone only went to the reunion in New York of his old triple-a team to get rid of the past. One play on the diamond ruined his shoulder, ended his prospects of ever playing for the Dodgers, and ended his relationship with the stunningly beautiful Kayla. It was an all-expenses paid trip by way of Vic Prado, former roommate, and the man who took his girl and who was part of the double-play that ended Jessie’s career. The past is not a friend that Jesse wants to visit,…See More

Review: "The Girl Who Wanted To Be Sherlock Holmes" by Bill Crider

As a junior at Harry Whittington high School, Ralph Markley, has enough going on every day without any complications.  Things have enough a tendency to happen to him and he gets blamed a lot.  It really isn’t his fault.

Review: "A Vampire Named Fred" by Bill Crider

The very run down house next door had been on the market for about 15 years when it finally sold. Al, who is 12, loved exploring the old place, but his mom worried about rotted out floors, broken stairs, snakes in the basement, and the bugs and dirt. While his parents would not buy the old place like he wanted them to, at least his Mom never forbade him from going over there.  He had loved going over there and poking around as long as he could remember and often his buddy Hermie went over there…See More

Review: "Nasty" by Bret R. Wright

Private Detective Ignatius Jepson goes by the name of Nate. On the mean streets of Seattle he is known as “Nasty.” It is not a nickname he likes, but considering the way he earned it, that nickname isn’t going to be something he will ever get rid of easily. Things don’t come easy to Nate and the way his latest case arrives won’t be easy either.  It was early in the morning a couple of hours before dawn and Nate was on a secluded beach contemplating the meaning of life. More accurately the…See More

Review: "Alive Into Hell: A Collection Of Crime Stories" by BJ Bourg

If you have read the author’s fiction before you are aware that betrayal is a theme found in many of his works. Such is the case here in Alive Into Hell: A Collection Of Crime  Stories. All twenty stories have been previously published in a variety of platforms both print and electronic. It also happens that all of them are good ones while also very frequently packing a hard punch to the gut. The book opens with the signature story “Alive Into Hell” where Vanessa Hickman is awakened from a dead…See More

Review: "The Bone Orchard" by Paul Doiron

It is late May and Mike Bowditch has recently done what some in the Maine Warden Service have long wanted---he quit. These days he is working as a fishing guide. That decision had many consequences some of which were obvious and some that were not. One of the not so obvious ones, at least to Mike, was the fact that he wasn’t available when his friend and mentor Sargent Kathy Frost needed him the most. Instead, she was with a rookie officer when dealing with the call about a troubled veteran who…See More

Review: "Wait For Signs: Twelve Longmire Stories" by Craig Johnson

As author Craig Johnson explains in “acknowledgements” the stories in “Wait for Signs: Twelve Longmire Stories” come from his annual holiday treat for his newsletter subscribers. Not only were they previously published in that sense several were also previously published in the small 2012 publication titled Christmas in Absaroka County: Walt Longmire Christmas Stories. Some of the stories are mysteries or have something a little mysterious going on and others are…

Review: "Hawthorne Tales Of A Weirder West" by Heath Lowrance

Blending a bit----and sometimes a lot--- of the supernatural with the western, author Heath Lowrance created Hawthorne Tales Of A Weirder West. This is a west long before it became civilized when things moved in the night.  Native peoples knew what areas to stay away from and did so while the white man failed to see the signs. A west of old where one man with a cross cut into the top of his head made it his mission to destroy evil in its many forms.

Review: "Annie And The Greateful Dead: A Short Story" by Denise Dietz

Told from the perspective of a cat that prefers to be considered “feline” because he is house broken, this short story mixing humor and mystery is an enjoyable read. The cat----or feline---in question goes by “Grateful” as his full name is “Grateful Dead.” He is okay with the name though, if he had a choice, he would have gone with Elvis since his great grandmother lived at Graceland and there are other family connections. It’s a good life as his pet is Annie (his owner) and Grateful has a…
