Publisher's Summary

The first three mysteries in the acclaimed Dewey Webb series: Web of Deceit, Murder in Fashion, and Secrets and Lies.

It's 1949. World War II is over, but it has a way of haunting people for years to come. Meet Dewey Webb, a hard-boiled 1940s detective, a man of contradictions who gets down and dirty to get the job done.

Web of Deceit

Gordon Sandalwood suspects his wife Edith is hiding something from him, and he asks Denver private investigator Dewey Webb to find out what. Dewey, toughened by his own war experiences, reluctantly takes the case, certain it will lead to nothing. But when he sees Edith rendezvous with a mysterious man, Dewey realizes his assumptions might be wrong. 

As he digs deeper to identify the stranger, he turns up secrets that reach back into the war, and as he unravels a web of deceit, he discovers who has the most to gain and the most to lose.

Murder in Fashion

Herb Washburn has already been convicted of murdering his boss Mel Templeton, owner of Templeton Fashion. And in a few days, Herb is headed to the Colorado state prison for a long stay in a decidedly unfashionable suit of clothes.

Herb still claims he didn’t commit the crime, and as a last resort, his wife hires Denver private investigator Dewey Webb to find the real killer.

Dewey senses secrets and lies that cast serious doubt on Herb’s version of the events. And when Dewey realizes that someone is on his trail who doesn’t want the murder solved, he must act fast before he becomes fashion's next victim.

Secrets and Lies

On an October day in 1949, private eye Dewey Webb’s life is turned upside down when his long-lost father shows up and asks for Dewey’s help.

It seems simple: find Gus’s friend Len. But is there more to this request than Gus is saying?

Captivating

Dewey Webb is a honest to goodness, real live, gumshoe detective. Pawlish has crafted a layered character in a believable world and provided some doozie cases for him, and the reader, to solve.
Can’t wait to read more!
