    Reports of a haunted house soon have amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin snooping around, only to discover the victim of the haunting is a universally disliked old biddy on whom someone is playing a practical joke. But then the old lady is murdered and, for Agatha, solving a crime is much more fun than ghost-busting. Very soon she’s up to her usual tricks, involving the villagers, local police, and, naturally, her handsome new neighbor.

    The Elvis impersonators were dead ringers for the King. Very dead. Harley Jean Davidson's job as a Memphis tour guide is about to get even stranger than usual.

    Most people think of the morgue as that cold and sterile facility where medical examiners do their necessary, albeit dreadful, work. Less familiar is the other type of morgue, the dry and dusty version, the newspaper morgue, usually housed in the basements and backrooms of newspaper buildings, where old news clippings are filed away. Dolly Madison Sprowls has been in charge of the Hannawa Herald-Union’s morgue for more than forty years. She is gruff and salty, well past the age of retirement, and the unchallenged queen of her ink-stained domain.

  • The Naked Detective

    Story
    (16)

    Popular crime novelist Laurence Shames consistently draws favorable comparisons to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen. In his Key West tales, Shames paints vivid, hilarious portraits of the sun-splashed “paradise” he calls home. The retired Pete Amsterdam isn’t really a private investigator. But he has a license, a gun, and a listing in the phone book—all so he can write-off his wine cellar as an “office.”

    Richard Delman says: "Unusual for Shames: kinda boring."
    "Started out very good."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I thought it might be funny the way it started out but it turned out to be tedious and predictable.


    What could Laurence Shames have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Wouldn't dream of telling a successful author what I think, He doesn't need me and doesn't care.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning


    Do you think The Naked Detective needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Just don't care, I'm not buying it.

    This is a free download, for members only, of "Duel in the Snow, or Red Ryder Nails the Cleveland Street Kid", the first story in the anthology on which the film A Christmas Story was based. Young Ralphie Parker launches an unstoppable campaign to get Santa, or anyone else, to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range-model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid"?

    K. Vieira says: "Early Christmas gift..."
    "Thank you so much."
    Overall

    Awesome, and it was free.
