Skeleton in a Dead Space: A Kelly O’Connell Mystery (Kelly O’Connell Mysteries Book 1)

by Judy Alter

Kelly O’Connell never thought real estate was a dangerous profession. But while updating early-twentieth-century Craftsman houses in an older neighborhood in Fort Worth, Texas, she stumbles over a skeleton and begins unraveling an old murder. The police call it a cold case, but Kelly knows she must solve the murder if she is to finish the house and sell it. She and her two young daughters quickly become the target of threats and vandalism, and someone is telling her ex-husband in California what’s going on. Tim Spencer arrives to protect his daughters by taking them to California with him but is soon found shot to death. Then a new client barges into Kelly’s life, and she finds herself facing a gun, a deadly killer, and the solution to the mystery of the skeleton and Tim’s death.



Lady 52 (A Jack Daniels/Nicholas Colt Novel)

by Jude Hardin

What do Lt. Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels and private investigator Nicholas Colt have in common?

Billiards, bourbon, bad jokes…

And murder. Several, in fact.

A homeless woman’s remains are found near Chicago twenty-six years after she disappeared. Her daughter–now retired in Florida–suspects foul play, and she hires Colt to fly up there and check it out.

A prominent Chicago physician is slain outside a convenience store, horribly mutilated. A senseless street killing? A robbery gone wrong? Or something much worse?

As the homicide cases and those involved converge, it quickly becomes apparent that Jack Daniels and Nicholas Colt are in for the most challenging–and deadly–time of their lives.

Filled with humor, suspense, and mystery, LADY 52 is sure to satisfy longtime Daniels and Colt fans, and is a perfect introduction to both series. It’s approximately 250 pages long.

Konrath and Hardin previously collaborated on the Daniels/Colt short story RACKED.
