Elm Books is proud to present our second mystery collection. All these stories feature an investigator and a death of some kind. But the fertile imaginations of our authors will take you on a wild ride from San Francisco to Massachusetts and back. We have a dead pig, dead lovers (straight and gay), a dead shoe salesman, suicide, lots of arson, fortuitous accidents, setups, and even a touch of romance. Our diverse detectives include a few PIs, some cops, some ex-cops, an insurance adjuster, ATF, a security guard, and a pair of Shadow Wolves-formidable Native American trackers who work with Homeland Security. We bring you double-crosses, revenge, things to prove, people just asking for it, and a couple of chances at redemption. All in crisp exciting prose. We do hope you enjoy "Great book " Jean Utley, Book 'Em Mysteries.
