AS THE TWIG IS BENT – Someone is raping and strangling women in the Chelsea section of Manhattan―but, who? The only clues: a distinct signature, a heart carved into each victim’s breast containing the initials “J.C.” and the initials of the decease; copies of the New Testament―with underlined passages referring to infidelity; and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s in Upstate New York. This is an explosive mystery thriller that exposes the sordid underbelly of the world of Internet chat rooms. Reg. $14.95 SALE PRICE $11.21
OPENING DAY – Matt is now Chief of Police of Roscoe, New York, a small fishing village in the Catskill Mountains. While out fishing, he stumbles across the remains of a body, barely recognizable as human, murdered approximately six months earlier. With no real evidence―no clothing, no identification, no clues―it’s up to Matt to not only find the murderer, but to identify the victim as well. In the end, however, it’s the revelation of the unlikely killer’s identity that shocks this tight-knit community to its very core. Opening Day is the second in the Matt Davis Mystery Series, and picks up where As the Twig is Bent left off. Reg. $14.95 SALE PRICE $11.21
TWICE BITTEN – A meth dealer is found murdered in his pickup truck in a parking lot used by fishermen. After all likely suspects are investigated, Chief Davis finds himself at a dead end―until he encounters the Trentweilers. Ron and Winona are Pentecostal preachers with cloudy pasts, who have made their way from Alabama, north into Matt’s “backyard” in the Catskills. Lately, they’ve incorporated venomous snakes into their religious “act.” Is Brother Ron exactly what he appears to be, a religious convert, or just a con man? And what about Winona? Who is she and where did she come from? These questions and others confront Matt, as he once again comes face to face with murder in the sleepy village of Roscoe, NY. Reg. $14.99 SALE PRICE $11.21
When Maggie McFarland, an 86-year old widow, is found dead among the rubble of the old Artemis Hotel, leveled by fire nearly seventy years ago, residents of Roscoe are shocked. It’s not where Maggie is found, but rather the manner of her demise that has everyone puzzled. Her life has not ended uneventfully―she’s been killed by a bullet to the heart! Who would want to kill this kind, gentle woman, known throughout the area as one of the best trout fly tiers within a hundred miles of the famed Beaverkill River? That is the mystery that confronts Matt Davis in Broken Promises, one of the most baffling cases of his career. Reg. $14.95 SALE PRICE $11.21
ESCAPING INNOCENCE: A STORY OF AWAKENING – Do you remember the Age of Aquarius, drive-in movies, the Ed Sullivan Show, Bonanza, and only three TV networks? Are you a Baby Boomer? If so, you’ll appreciate―or should I say “dig”―this book. David Justin is an Italian-Catholic, height-challenged youth, desperately trying to escape the bonds of sexual repression and adolescent innocence that hold him captive in the Sixties. The journey of enlightenment is both laugh-aloud funny and gut-wrenchingly emotional, as David discovers that coming-of-age is more than just a five-minute roll in the hay culminating in a thirty-second celebratory shower. Peace and love, man! Reg. $14.95 SALE PRICE $11.21
