Red Chaser

By Jon Spoelstra / Genre: Mystery & Thrillers, Historical Fiction / Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (81 reviews)

Red Chaser

If you enjoy James Ellroy or the Nate Heller books by Max Allan Collins, you’ll love this romp into this 1950s history of spies, Commies and the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Jake McHenry spent five years in Germany after Hitler’s War and came back laden with ill-gotten Nazi riches.

Back home in Brooklyn, he became a private detective because he needed a pretend job to hide the source of his riches. Mostly, however, he went to most Brooklyn Dodgers games at Ebbets Field and drank beer.

In between games, Jake did occasionally work at being a detective. His specialty was looking for candid photo-ops of husbands trying to get a little on the side.

Then Joe McCarthy entered the picture. A childhood buddy introduced Jake to Tailgunner Joe. They wanted Jake to steal a secret list of celebrity communists from the Ice Queen, a rich high-society commie named Arabella Van Dyk. The Ice Queen also happened to be the most beautiful woman that Jake had ever seen.

The break-in of the Ice Queen’s brownstone in Manhattan was easy, but it unleashed Russians, North Koreans, J. Edgar Hoover, mobsters and one stunningly beautiful spy in a wild chase for the list.

In the background is the greatest pennant race in the history of Major League Baseball. In 1951, the New York Giants chased the Brooklyn Dodgers for the National League Pennant. That’s the year that Bobby Thompson hit the “shot heard ’round the world.” The pennant—and Jake’s life—came down to the last inning and the last pitch at the Polo Grounds in New York City on Wednesday, October 3, 1951.

Red Chaser is a fresh spin on the crime/intrigue novel. It’s fun, it’s 1950s noir, it’s Brooklyn, it keeps you guessing and when you finish the last page you say, “Wow, that was fun.”

By Maggie Pill / Genre: Contemporary Fiction / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (108 reviews)

3 Sleuths, 2 Dogs, 1 Murder (The Sleuth Sisters)

When Retta’s “gentleman friend” is accused of murder, the Sleuth Sisters take on the case. Winston Darrow is a charmer, but his secrets create trouble that spills onto Retta, Barb, Faye, and even police chief Rory Neuencamp. Someone is out to get Win, someone he claims is the real killer. While Retta admits Win is less trustworthy than her daffy Newfoundland dog, she insists he’s not a murderer.

Dogs become an issue when Faye rescues a mutt she finds hurt on the road. Though Barb isn’t a fan, she can’t refuse Faye’s request to keep the homely, ill-tempered Buddy. Retta, though doubtful about adopting strays, is determined that Faye’s dog and her Styx will be great friends. The adjustment isn’t easy, since Buddy sees Faye as the only worthwhile being in the world.

As the sisters conduct their investigation, mysterious men interfere, each more threatening than the last. What do they want with them—and with Winston?

When the situation turns dangerous, the sleuths hide Win at Rory’s cabin, reachable in a Michigan winter only by snowmobile. In the frozen wilderness, Barb and Retta must ignore their differences and work together to stay alive. Back at home, Faye faces a deadly enemy with only Buddy and a couple of horses for backup.

If the Sleuth Sisters live through this, it will be due to family solidarity, doggie instincts, and loyal friends. But really, who would ask for more?
