Ring of Truth by Nancy Pickard, Amazon Kindle format

Sex, violence, evil, and betrayal — the shocking murder case splashed across the Florida headlines has all the right elements for true-crime writer Marie Lightfoot's next bestseller. And tell the tale she does, in a book that reveals the secrets of a love affair gone fatally wrong. But there are disturbing twists, which leave Marie sensing in her gut that something does not jibe.

Twist number one: the accused is a man of the cloth, who has allegedly killed his wife in collusion with his lover. Twist number two: a pair of young girls find the body in an abandoned mansion, adding the death of innocence to the magnitude of the crime. Twist number three: a shattering conviction turns the case on its ear. And the ultimate blow: for the first time in her career, Marie fails to win the the killer's confidence during a jailhouse interview. Suddenly, she knows with certainty there is more to the story than even she realized — and her conscience won't let her rest.

Then an unexpected visitor — a shock in itself for the reclusive writer — confesses something that not even the police know. The revelation may he the missing piece in a terrifying puzzle — evidence that teaches Marie a bone-chilling lesson as threatening danger slowly encircles her: to err is human, but underestimating the criminal mind can be deadly.

Born a refugee, Eddie Franks intends to live like a Rockefeller.

For most of his childhood, Eddie was raised by the Scargos, an American family whose patriarch kept his real son, Nicky, in constant competition with Eddie. Their battle has never ended.

Though now an internationally successful hotel magnate, Eddie still feels the need to outdo Nicky. At his stepbrother's suggestion, he goes into business in the Americas, opening a cruise company in the Caribbean. Expansion is the name of the game, and Nicky offers financing, with strings attached. The money is an investment from organized crime, and Eddie is unaware that the interest will be paid in blood.

Please Welcome Back Mystery Author Barry S. Brown

Omnimystery News: Guest Post by Barry S. Brown

We are delighted to welcome back author Barry S. Brown to Omnimystery News.

Barry last visited with us early in 2014 to discuss his Mrs. Hudson of Baker Street mystery series, the fourth book of which, Mrs. Hudson in New York (MX Publishing; July 2015 trade paperback), is published this week, and we asked him to tell us more about his writing process. He titles his guest post for us today, "Write What You Know — Not".

It is the advice invariably given aspiring authors. Write what you know, which is to say write from your own experience and your work will have an authenticity it might otherwise lack. There is, however, one potential drawback to writing what you know.

What you know may be boring. Not all of us have had the good fortune of staring down death, or remaking our lives after years of unremitting debauchery. Indeed, some few of us have been denied a shot at debauchery, unremitting or otherwise. For us, which is to say for me, writing outside my own limited experience provides the freedom to explore a world I could never otherwise enter, accompanied by companions I would never otherwise meet.

The world I have chosen to explore is that of Victorian England and the people I have chosen for companions are the familiar figures of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. John Watson, and Mrs. Hudson. When I was young, they led me through the streets of London and the English countryside; now I lead them — but with a difference. The difference is Mrs. Hudson.

Consider the plight of the Victorian woman who hopes for a life beyond the confines of her own kitchen. That was the dilemma faced by Mrs. Hudson. Fortunately for her — to say nothing of the safety of London's citizenry — Mrs. Hudson had a plan to go with her hopes. She had spent nearly every evening of the 29 years of her marriage, working with her constable husband to devise strategies of investigation appropriate to the crimes reported in London's Evening Standard, and nearly every day honing her observational skills on London's streets and horse cars. With the constable's untimely death, her plan was ready to be implemented, if only to honor her husband's memory. The lodgings at 221B Baker Street, long before leased by the couple to shield them from the workhouse as they aged, became the bargaining chip for recruiting the male figurehead critical to organizing a business in the latter part of the 19th century. Offering rooms to let for someone with "an inquiring mind and curiosity about human behavior," she was able to hire a sometime chemist named Holmes to be her consulting detective agency's face to the public. With Dr. Watson a welcome addition, everything was in place.

For their business to prosper, however, the myth of Sherlock Holmes required a publicist. John Watson, an otherwise honorable man, struggled with creating the necessary fiction. His Number Two Eagle pencil slipped only once when he made note of her "stately tread." This prompted some to conclude he was speaking of the challenge Mrs. Hudson faced in keeping her weight under control. (Admittedly, she was a frequent consumer of the raisin-filled scones she routinely prepared for her boarders and their guests.) However, the doctor's reference was not to her weight in the usual sense of the word, but to the gravity of her presence. Together with Holmes, he had been frequently led through thickets of misunderstanding and deception to arrive finally on a smooth path to discovery — always permitting Holmes to claim the journey's success as his own. It was a necessary subterfuge, but it rankled the good doctor. Now, at last, the truth can be made known, and Mrs. Hudson's exploits properly celebrated.

In Mrs. Hudson in New York, the latest effort to correct a century of misinformation, the trio cross the ocean to attend the wedding of Mrs. Hudson's niece whose fiancé is a pitcher for the Brooklyn Bridegrooms baseball team. Upon their arrival they find the young man accused of an assault on JP Morgan and the death of his aide. To set right the course of justice, allow a wedding to proceed, and save the game of baseball, Mrs. Hudson and her associates will travel from the staid elegance of New York's 400 to the seamy excitement of its Tenderloin, along the way enlisting the assistance of Mark Twain and a leader in the African Broadway community.

Had I restricted myself to writing only from my own experience it would have been far less enjoyable for me, and far less rewarding for any reader seeking something other than a sleep aid. Writing about what I don't know — and had to research — not only afforded opportunity to become enmeshed in new worlds; in this instance it also afforded opportunity to give a grand lady the long overdue credit for her work with the consulting detective agency at 221B Baker Street, an agency whose exploits are destined to continue to enthrall and stir the imagination of readers long into the future.

— ♦ —

Before assuming responsibility for setting the record to right, revealing Mrs. Hudson's true role with London' first and premier consulting detective agency, Barry S. Brown was engaged in research on a variety of lesser issues. In that capacity he published a number of papers and chapters in the fields of mental health, criminology, and drug abuse. He briefly tried resting on his laurels only to discover their pointy leaves.

Accompanied by Holmes and Watson, Mrs. Hudson crosses the ocean to attend the wedding of her cousin's daughter. They disembark to discover that the young lady's fiancée, a pitcher for the Brooklyn Bridegrooms, stands accused of an attempt on the life of JP Morgan and the death of his aide. A self-declared enemy of Morgan and the robber barons, the ballplayer ran from the scene of the crime and, when captured, was found in possession of a gun with two spent cartridges, the same number and caliber as that used in the attack. Before a wedding can be held, the unacknowledged sage of Baker Street will lead Holmes and Watson along a path of investigation taking them from JP Morgan's mansion to the gambling dens of New York's Tenderloin.

With the enthusiastic assistance of Samuel Clemens, the reluctant assistance of Morgan, and the cautious assistance of a leader in the African Broadway community, they will identify the financier's attacker, frustrate efforts to corrupt the game of baseball, and rescue the prospective bride and groom from would-be assassins before returning finally to the comparative quiet of 221B Baker Street.

Days after the encounter at the Swiss waterfall, Pinkerton detective agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. Moriarty's death has left an immediate, poisonous vacuum in the criminal underworld, and there is no shortage of candidates to take his place — including one particularly fiendish criminal mastermind.

Chase and Scotland Yard Inspector Athelney Jones, a devoted student of Holmes's methods of investigation and deduction originally introduced by Conan Doyle in "The Sign of Four", must forge a path through the darkest corners of England's capital — from the elegant squares of Mayfair to the shadowy wharfs and alleyways of the London Docks — in pursuit of this sinister figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, who is determined to stake his claim as Moriarty's successor.

The Amazing Arden is the most famous female illusionist of her day, renowned for her notorious trick of sawing a man in half on stage.

When Arden's husband is found lifeless beneath the stage later that night, the answer seems clear.

But when Virgil happens upon the fleeing magician and takes her into custody, she has a very different story to tell. Even handcuffed and alone, Arden is far from powerless — and what she reveals is as unbelievable as it is spellbinding. Over the course of one eerie night, Virgil must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free … and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.

But working for the Greenbury Police Department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. Yet just when he thinks he's made a mistake, Decker is called to an actual crime — a possible break-in at the local cemetery.

At first, it seems like a false alarm but soon escalates into murder when a co-ed at an exclusive consortium of liberal-arts colleges is brutally slaughtered. Poking into the hallowed halls of academia to find a killer, Decker is drawn deep into a web of nasty secrets, cold-case crimes, international intrigue, and ruthless people who kill for sport.

Decker will need to use every bit of his keen mind and his thirty years of experience as a homicide cop to stop a callous killer and uncover a cabal so bizarre that it defies logic.

And then the revelations start.

Could their long-ago lie be the reason for their troubles today?
