Aleutian Grave

leave a comment »

On behalf of BookYear Mysteries, I am pleased to announce the release of the fourth Henry Grave mystery – Aleutian Grave.

AGKindlecoverAleutian Grave explores crime in the Bering Sea. Henry Grave returns as an investigator for the Association of Cruising Vessel Operators. A World War II P.O.W., Henry is as cunning as he is charming, and at 85 years of age, he fits right in with his fellow passengers. The arctic exploration ship Nikolai Gorodish is cruising the Aleutian islands when a cabaret dancer named Rose DeSilva is found stabbed to death. More deaths will follow. But that’s only the beginning. Is there an arctic demon on board the ship? Or is someone else cannibalizing the bodies of the dead? With the help of a horror film star, a Russian heiress, and an apprentice shaman, Henry draws on skills honed in a Nazi prison camp to track down a killer who might have his own reasons for taking this particular cruise, reasons unrelated to the sumptuous meals, delightful shipboard activities, and arctic ports of call.

12 million people take a cruise each year.
Most have fun.
Some die.
Henry Grave investigates.

The Cannibals of Madison County

leave a comment »

After a long toil, my epic short story (17 pages) The Cannibals of Madison County is finished.


I put the story up as a Kindle short story, because let’s face it, there’s nowhere else to publish these days except Highlights for Children, and they’re cagey when it comes to headhunting.  I intend this as an experiment.  The story is only 18 pages long, and you can download it free today.  If you get a moment, you could help out by reading the story and then, if you like it, give a short review.  If I can get 15 good reviews, I can blast the story on all the sharing pages and get thousands of readers.

Mummies in print!!!

with 2 comments

On behalf of BookYear Mysteries, I am thrilled to announce that my illustrated horror mystery ‘The Mummies of Blogspace9‘ is now available in print!

No longer will you have to pore over a tiny Kindle screen.  Now, the genuine organic free-range paper pages turn crisply, backlit only by whatever you have going on.


The Mummies of Blogspace9 is a taut, high-stakes thriller about a team of archaeologists who inadvertently dig up more than they bargained for. Demons of antiquity are not easily amused, nor are those who’ve sold their souls to protect them.
“None of us knew what was at stake. And that’s the thing about archaeology – you never know what you’ll find when you start digging into an ancient pyramid. Maybe some burials, mummies even. But surely not a five hundred year-old secret worth killing for. Had I known at the onset that seven weeks later most of my friends would be dead, I would have left Peru in a heartbeat. But of course I didn’t know that. I didn’t know that a demonically-possessed Spanish Grand Inquisitor would haunt the crap out of us, or that a pair of undead conquistador knights would help us find the secret to putting down walking mummies. And surely, I wouldn’t have just sat around had I known that something was watching from inside that pyramid, some malevolent force that could animate the dead. But it’s all true, as you’ll come to realize.”
Spend a few hours reading the five-star reviews, and Be sure to get your copy today!
