Paydown – by Nick Stephenson. When a high-flying Wall Street investment banker is found brutally killed, what started out as a simple fraud case turns into expert criminologist Leopold Blake's first ever murder investigation.

Off the Leash – by D. D. Vandyke. There’s not much left that can surprise private investigator California “Cal” Corwin any more, especially since the accident.

Story Length: 9,000 words, approx. 30 print pages.

Ladies Weekend – by Ryan King. A trip to the Gulf Shores with her three sisters-in-law was not exactly Cathy's idea of a good time.

Story Length: 6,000 words, approx. 23 print pages.

Veritas: Concubine – by R.S. Guthrie. How far would you go to find the truth? Shale Veritas is not his real name, but that's not important.

You have been warned.

Mysteries Afoot

 on February 28, 2015
By Pappa Place
This is a great collection of mystery stories. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection and I thought all the stories were solid and enjoyable, but my favorites were. The Nick Stephenson and David VanDyke stories. I really liked Stephenson’s Leopold Blake character and VanDyke’s California Corwin character they are both tough as nails smart and street smart the combo makes them interesting characters. The characters in these two stories have the feel of old time pot boiler thriller mystery in the vein of Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade or The Thin Man or The Shadow, like the stories I grew up on but with a modern day spin on them. Murder mayhem mystery and a dash of sarcasm make these a great collection of stories. So if you like this genre then this collection is for you they are highly addictive and entertaining. I plan on reading other stories and or books by all of these authors which is highly unusual because in a collection you usually find some you don’t like that was not the case I liked them all. More Please.

An easy choice! Grab it pronto!

Not only do you get to sample the fine works of Alan McDermott (author of the popular “Tom Gray” series) and Ryan King (one of my personal favorites since I’ve already purchased and reviewed several of his other works) but all this for the whopping sum of absolute “Zero” dollars. As if you need any further incentive to grab this collection, to buy “Paydown” by Nick Stephenson as of 2/16/2015 would set you back $2.99 if purchased separately whereas it is included for “FREE” in this bundle. So whatever are you waiting for?

I don’t know how I scored this for free – but I’m sure happy I did!

Eight The Hard Way

Thrillers are one of my favorite reads when it comes to selecting books for my kindle. The characters seem to really bring out the story being told, and it keeps you wanting to read more as you get involved in the story that is being told.

Very good

Didn’t think I would enjoy such short stories-Was I totally wrong!!! They were fast to the point and kept me engrossed! Plus I didn’t feel like it was taking forever to read. Thanks writers for proving me wrong!!
