Review: "The Interloper" By Dave Zeltserman

Sleeper style agents working for the enemy and plotting horrendous acts against targets inside the United States. Having done three tours with the army including being part of…

While outliving three husbands was okay, she hates the fact she has outlived four of her five children. And while she often dreams of her own passing, she is very much alive and that means it is time to pay her respects to the recently departed Emily Cook.

Late August and New England Patriots star linebacker Kinjo Heywood has summoned Spenser to his mansion in Chestnut Hill to discuss a problem. Kinjo believes he is being followed by a group of guys and wants it stopped. He also wants to know why they are doing it as he firmly believes the way they acted is not something regular fans would do. Of course, it could all just be Kinjo…

Review: "Wide Spot In The Road" by Wayne D. Dundee

If the drifter detective, Jack Laramie, had blinked he might have missed the small “chili” sign in the window of Frenchy's as he passed by. After all there was only one vehicle in the parking lot and the place itself wasn't much to look at. Neither was anything around it at this wide spot in the road where an unpaved county road crossed the little used state highway. Just another wide spot in the road with this one located somewhere in the Texas panhandle. No reason to stop other than…
