The Reed Ferguson Mystery Series, Box Set Publisher's Summary

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!

If you're a fan of fun, suspenseful mysteries, don't miss this collection that's a fast-paced, humorous listen, without a lot of swearing or sex.

    Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson is between cases when a house fire threatens to consume the home of his girlfriend, Willie. The police think it's arson, and they look to Willie - the owner of the building - as the logical suspect. Worse yet, when a body is found in the charred third-floor apartment, the police think Willie is the killer. Reed hops into action to clear her name, but as his own list of suspects grows, so does the danger.
