Beat the heat with one of our new August releases

Here is some comforting although electrifying reading as we anticipate the arrival of fall weather. The weather will be welcomed by some and shunned by others. Hopefully, our books will be welcomed by all!

Two PI novels, one set in rural Ohio and one in 1970s San Francisco, are sure to captivate your attention. Plus, our two paperback releases offer a great way to jump into a new series.
