There’s been a burglary in a luxury co-op in Manhattan: an elderly woman was assaulted in her apartment, with jewelry taken. The prime suspect is Johnny Jones, who was in the building around the same time, helping his lawyer, public defender Alan Goldman, move temporarily into the apartment of his friend, corporate lawyer Tim Wilson. But another suspect soon emerges: a look-alike intruder who got into the building through a basement door with a broken lock. The victim is suing the co-op for millions, represented by her niece, litigator Cathy Collins – Tim’s ex-girlfriend. She claims the intruder is guilty, but Tim – the president of the co-op’s board – claims Johnny is guilty; if so, the co-op isn’t liable at all, since he got into the building lawfully. See how lawyers Tim and Cathy behave oh so badly, using sex to influence Alan and A.D.A. Gina Gomez in their handling of Johnny’s case, to suit their lawsuit ends… It won’t be until the very end of this dark-comedy mystery that the question will finally be answered: which of the two suspects is guilty?

110-121Sara Barnes thought her life was perfectly ordinary – until the night she began stepping into other people’s dreams.
Follow Sara as she learns to cope with this extraordinary gift (or curse) in the first three books of the Dream Doctor Mysteries:
It’s bad enough that, thanks to her supernatural talent, Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer – and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next.
Medical school and life as a newlywed would be enough by themselves for anybody to handle. But Sara’s got another problem – her dreams have started up again. Almost everyone at the medical school is dreaming about the death of the school’s least popular teacher, Dr. Morris, and once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.
Sara thought she had made peace with her dreaming talent, but she’s got a surprise coming: her four-year-old daughter has inherited it, too.
Unraveling a mystery with lives on the line is difficult enough under the best of circumstances. But when Sara has to view all the evidence through the eyes – and dreams – of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

A seventeen-year-old girl is missing!
1943 Detroit private detective, Sam Flanagan has to find the niece of a childhood friend. The job won’t be easy as he finds no one knows anything, and they don’t care, either. But someone must know something! Will he be successful in bringing her home for the Easter holiday?
The life of a magician isn’t all kiddie shows and card tricks. Sometimes it’s murder. Especially when magician Eli Marks very publicly debunks a famed psychic, and said psychic ends up dead. The evidence, including a bloody King of Diamonds playing card (one from Eli’s own Ambitious Card routine), directs the police right to Eli.
As more psychics are slain, and more King cards rise to the top, Eli can’t escape suspicion. Things get really complicated when romance blooms with a beautiful psychic, and Eli discovers she’s the next target for murder, and he’s scheduled to die with her. Now Eli must use every trick he knows to keep them both alive and reveal the true killer.
Tempest Michaels is the only paranormal investigator in the book.
There’s just one problem – he is convinced the paranormal doesn’t exist.
Tempest Michaels spends his days solving daft crimes that his clients have determined are paranormal in nature. They never are, of course, so he spends a lot of time pointing out that Great Aunt Agnes isn’t a witch, she is just ugly, or you don’t have spirits waking you each night, you just suffer from terrible flatulence.
The daftness is interrupted though when a serial killer dubbed “The Vampire” starts biting throats in his town. Despite being the only paranormal investigator in the book, he could have ignored the case, but a chance encounter with the alluring Officer Amanda Harper and his lonely heart demands he give his help when she asks for it.
Soon hip-deep in vampire wannabes that intend to kill him, aided by friends who are not that helpful, advised by a clearly deluded occult bookshop owner and encumbered by his mother’s attempts to marry him off because she wants grandchildren, Tempest Michaels has his work cut out if he wants to solve this case.
His mother wants him to marry – like literally anyone and produce grandchildren right now.
His Dachshunds want their dinner and maybe a treat under threat of pooping in his shoes.
And mostly he just wants to be left alone to meet a nice lady that he can have a relationship with.
Paranormal Nonsense is a funny, cozy mystery full of action and suspense and is the first in a long series of adventures for Tempest Michaels and his dysfunctional group of friends.
