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: "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: "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: "Ruin Falls: A Novel" by Jenny Miclhman

A vacation can highlight the strain inside a marriage. The simple thing at home in the normal confines becomes a bit more problematic out on the road. Throw in the stress of taking two small children on the road and that strain is increased. Liz Daniels knew that there were some issues in her marriage to Paul even if she never fully acknowledged them. Minor control stuff and usually she could find a work around to deal with it without anything turning into a major problem. Much harder to work…See More

Review: "The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel" by Linda Castillo

The past is never truly buried. As any mystery reader knows, the past often comes back with a vengeance leaving a trail of bodies and carnage in its wake. Such is the case here in The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel by Linda Castillo. The author once again takes readers to the Amish country she has made familiar in another tale where the past is almost as big a character as the actual characters themselves. The latest in this very good series begins in early March 1979 with a home…See More

Review: "Dead End" by Craig Faustus Buck

It isn’t the fact that Dr. Luke Vico drives a BMW worth more than 100 grand that makes him a scumbag. For ex-detective Beltran it is Vico’s public behavior this particular evening as well as what he did to Angela Landau. Vico got away with murder and nothing was right ever again. Maybe Beltran can now figure out a way to fix things.

 

There is quite a lot going on in this complex short story. Nominated for the 2014 Anthony Award for Best Short Story this material is currently…

Review: "Texas Vigilante" by Bill Crider

Originally published in 1999 by Dell Books, Texas Vigilante is a sequel to Outrage in Blanco. Some of the events of the first book are mentioned in Texas Vigilante and, by necessity, in this review so you have been warned.

 

It has been a few months since Ella Taine took over Jonathan Crossland’s ranch after he died. These past months have not been easy. Ranching in Texas is difficult things were such that she had to go into debt to a…
