New Book - A Murder Amongst Angels:

A Murder Amongst Angels

Sexy, platinum blonde movie siren, Gertrude Hurd had it all- fame, men, and riches. But now she was dead. A fallen angel, whose broken body and tarnished halo was lying on a hillside behind her beach front café. It’s 1931, and private detective Tom Logan is back, once again immersed in a perplexing mystery, that has him racing against time to track down a merciless killer. As the body count grows, so do the suspects, as his investigation soon has him bucking against corrupt city officials, the mob, and the Hollywood studio system. Packed with mystery, action, romance, humor, and characters you won’t easily forget, this fantastic sequel delivers everything promised from the first novel and more.

A Murder Amongst Angels is an nostalgic, hard-boiled detective mystery that takes readers back to the era of Chandler and Hammett, while creating a niche all its own.

Available at Amazon. Also in e-book format.

Sharyl Heber:

Our NW Member, Dennis Miller, just included NW Member Sharyl Heber's Halloween Story, 'Glory Days' on his October 26, 2012 Podcast at www.smoke-and-mirrors.us. New Podcasts air on Fridays at 9 PM but you can log onto the site and listen to the Podcasts anytime.

Dennis is always looking for new writers, readers, musicians and fresh material. He leans toward dark, spooky, edgy material - sci-fi and/or stories of the macabre. Authors maintain the rights to their own material. While other publisher/producers may have pesky objections to ‘simultaneous submissions,’ Dennis does not. Congratulations to both Dennis and Sharyl!
