Why Casey Had to Die by L. C. Hayden
A Harry Bronson Mystery
Newly retired police officer Harry Bronson has just one regret in his career: the murder he never solved. It was his first case as a rookie, and the only one he played strictly by the book. Perhaps that's why he still has the files with him more than twenty years later. And why he's ready when the killer that got away comes back, ready to resume the game.
Cryptic letters, along with an invitation to join a murder-mystery convention with an eerily familiar plot, lure him to Arizona -- and another murder makes him realize he's up against a twisted mind intent on some kind of final showdown. When his faceless enemy strikes out by abducting Harry's wife, Carol, a desperate race across the desert is about to become a one-way trip where winner takes all, and the loser dies trying.
Retirement Homes are Murder by Mike Befeler
A Paul Jacobson Mystery
Newly settled in at the Kina Nani Retirement Home in Hawaii, octogenarian Paul Jacobson discovers he has two major problems -- his short-term memory … and a murder. He can't remember much from day to day, which makes it tough when he's the one to find a body in the trash chute. Worse, he's the prime suspect because he had a grudge against the victim.
Paul knows he's not a killer and figures he'd better clear his name. But his sleuthing unearths as much mayhem as mystery, and more murder. With the help of his buddy Meyer, who helps him keep a journal of events, and his plucky young granddaughter, Paul uses his keen observations to create a clear path to a clever killer -- now ready to send Paul packing … for good.
Fifty-Seven Heaven by Lonnie Cruse
A Kitty Bloodworth Mystery
The judges at the annual antique car show are the first ones to view the tangled, strangled corpse of Will Ann Lloyd in the trunk of the restored '57 classic automobile. Naturally, the car's owner, Jack Bloodworth, is disqualified. And his devoted wife, Kitty -- cousin to the late Will Ann -- becomes the prime suspect when police learn that Will Ann announced to an entire crowd the previous night that Kitty's daughter, Sunny, was a tramp. Motive enough for murder.
Determined to clear her name -- and her daughter's reputation -- Kitty digs into the life and possessions of the universally loathed Will Ann, and discovers clues that raise some shocking questions. Why had Will Ann hired a private detective? Moreover, what kind of deep, dark secrets is Sunny hiding? With the killer poised to strike again, Kitty races to find the truth, before the road to ruin leads six feet under.
