BISAC: Fiction / Mystery & Detective / Women Sleuths
Tracy Brubaker is a successful Maryland attorney who doesn’t handle murder cases—that is until her former lover, the man who broke her heart, is accused of murdering his father. Even though the evidence against Brian Shane seems strong enough to prove his guilt, Tracy comes to his defense.
She finds herself playing detective—a lifelong ambition since she read her first Nancy Drew book. Despite the grim circumstances, Tracy finds she is enjoying the hunt for clues as she compiles a list of other possible suspects, all of whom had a motive for wanting Brian’s father dead. She also finds herself reliving the past: memories both pleasant and painful.
As she gets closer to the truth—of both the murder and her feelings for Brian—another murder is committed and Tracy’s life is in danger. Can she figure out—and prove—who the true killer is before she becomes the next victim?

BISAC: Fiction / Mystery & Detective / Women Sleuths

Tailor Massimo “Max” Paganini is in trouble. His long-time rival Randall Pepper has been found shot dead in Max’s own shop. Only Max’s fingerprints are on the gun and there’s evidence he arranged a meeting with Pepper. Still, Max insists he’s innocent. But who could possibly believe him? Attorney Tracy Brubaker does. She’s known Max since she was four years old and agrees to defend him. And she soon finds out there’s a lot more to this murder than just a decades-old feud. Several of Max’s own employees have secrets to hide. The FBI shows up at her office asking questions but refusing to give answers. The most disturbing element of all, however, is prospective client Charlie Betts, whose true identity puts Tracy in the cross hairs of career criminal Reginald Walters, who’s gotten away with murder before. It doesn’t help matters that Max isn’t the most cooperative of clients, refusing to believe anyone close to him could be involved in Pepper’s killing. In spite of everything, however, Tracy presses on, and gets close enough to the truth so that lives are threatened. But neither the FBI, Charlie Betts, nor Reginald Walters have ever dealt with anyone quite like Tracy. Willing to put her life on the line for Max, Tracy plans a dramatic courtroom reveal which not only exposes whodunit, but also how it was done.

Funerals; for most of us the trappings of the funeral parlor and the finality of the cemetery commemorates the end, but for an actor like Armand Tesla, who was best remembered for his vampire roles, a funeral is only the beginning. Armand Tesla was to be buried in his vampire costume, but obviously the aged star of stage and screen horror was not yet ready to ring down the final curtain. No, it would not be nearly so easy to bury such a restless corpse. So be prepared for a case of a body that won’t stay put and the tale of a struggling young movie director with more ambition than talent who turns up missing at the vampire’s last bow. Indeed, my friends, this will prove to be just the kind of case that only a psychic Hollywood detective like Charles Criswell King, aided by Famous Monster Forrest J Ackerman, can solve. So, gentle reader, be prepared for a tale of creaking doors and empty coffins, of gunshots in the night and damsels in distress, all part of “The Vampire’s Tomb Mystery.”
