Now in a single box set - the first three action-packed and humorous Reed Ferguson mysteries, plus a Reed Ferguson short story.
Reed Ferguson loves film noir and classic detective fiction, and he wants more than anything to emulate his hero, Humphrey Bogart. So Reed tries his hand at the detecting business and what follows is a humorous journey into suspense territory.
This Doesn't Happen in the Movies (Book 1)
A wannabe private eye with a love of film noir and detective fiction. A rich, attractive femme fatale. A missing husband. A rollicking ride to a dark and daring ending.
Reed Ferguson's first case is a daring adventure, complete with a dose of film noir, and a lot of humor. With a great supporting cast of the Goofball Brothers, Reed's not too bright neighbors, and Cal, Reed's computer geek friend, This Doesn't Happen in the Movies is detective noir at its best. Follow Reed as he solves crime akin to his cinematic hero, Humphrey Bogart.
Reel Estate Rip-Off (Book 2)
Lights! Camera! Reed!
A mysterious death. A brother searching for the truth. A devious ex-wife. Real estate shenanigans. More danger for Reed than a film noir plot.
Reed Ferguson's second adventure is again filled with film noir and humor. Along with the Goofball Brothers, Reed's not too bright neighbors, and Cal, Reed's computer geek friend, Reed tackles a dangerous case, sharpening his skills as he unearths a string of clues that lead to a killer - but will this case cost Reed his life? With an ode to old Hollywood and movie memorabilia, Reel Estate Rip-Off is humorous detective noir at its best.
The Maltese Felon (Book 3)
When an attractive female client begs Reed Ferguson to find her prize-winning Maltese show dog stolen from her backyard, Reed suspects he may be channeling Ace Ventura: Pet Detective rather than his hero, Humphrey Bogart. It sounds like a simple case, but things take a dangerous turn and Reed discovers that man's best friend can attract some decidedly unfriendly characters!
"Elvis and the Sports Card Cheat" (Bonus Short Story)
Reed Ferguson returns in an outrageously fun short story!
Perry Rawlings, an Elvis impersonator, has his prize Mickey Mantle baseball card stolen. Who is the culprit? This tale will keep you guessing!

That print version of the books are entertaining and fun to read but the audio version brought them to life in ways I didn't get while reading alone. This is a great series for whisper sync.
The narrator's performance was perfect for the series protagonist and did a wonderful job of creating a movie for the mind.
Anxious to hear more from this combination of author and narrator.
"Good idea ."
The idea behind these stories is pretty good , shame about the narrator , and maybe the editor , these stories deserved better treatment . I feel sorry for the author or though I suppose he chooses who will present his effort .
