A riveting mystery with psychological twists that you won’t see coming
How far would you go to protect your reputation?An ex-football player is brutally murdered. A National Ballet dancer inexplicably commits suicide. The only link between the two deaths is Dr. Roger Peterson, a famous psychiatrist and bestselling author.
Toronto Private Investigator Samantha McNamara can’t accept that her childhood friend manipulated the dancer into committing suicide or that he’s capable of murder. But the victim’s schizophrenic wife was Dr. Peterson’s patient and lover. And her husband intended to go public with a complaint that would destroy the doctor’s life.

When Sam’s fiancé, ex-OPP Inspector Reece Hash, receives a shocking suicide letter from the ballerina, Dr. Peterson’s unethical conduct unravels. But the psychiatrist could be a pawn in a twisted game. As the pieces fall into place, a ruthless serial killer plunges Sam and Reece into a terrifying nightmare. Their only chance of survival is to outwit a psychopath whose greatest pleasure is the game.

The rules are simple: trust no one, believe nothing, and stay alive.

Dear Mr. Holmes: Seven Holmes on the Range Mysteries

by Steve Hockensmith

Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer have starred in five “Holmes on the Range” novels, rustling up award nominations and fans aplenty as they cracked mysteries using the methods of their hero, Sherlock Holmes. How did these Old West drifters first discover Holmes, though? What were they doing before their novel adventures began? And how did their early, awkward stabs at “deducifying” turn out? These seven short stories provide the answers.

In “Dear Mr. Holmes,” Old Red first gets the itch to turn detective — and just in time, too, because a killer’s stalking him and his brother along a Kansas cattle trail. In “Gustav Amlingmeyer, Holmes of the Range,” Old Red’s attempt to settle down and open his own “cafay” goes haywire when one of the customers gets a side order of arsenic with his steak and potatoes. In “Wolves in Winter,” Big Red and Old Red go up against deadly predators of both the two- and four-legged variety. And the adventure continues in four more stories (most of them originally published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine).

Critics have called Steve Hockensmith’s “Holmes on the Range” tales “hilarious” (Entertainment Weekly), “quirky and original” (The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), “clever” (The New York Times), “wonderfully entertaining” (Booklist) and “a hoot” (The Washington Post). There’s only one way to find out if you agree. Order your copy of Dear Mr. Holmes today!
