To make it more attractive for you, the reader, we set ourselves a limit of a thousand words. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes — on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet at home or in the office, but also on your smartphone, on the go, while you are commuting or waiting at a coffee shop for your significant other to arrive.
We included as many genres as we could. We hope that maybe, with only five minutes of your time on the line that would otherwise be wasted anyway, you'll be tempted to venture outside your comfort zone and try out some new genres and new authors.

Under Suspicion is the third adventure of Officers Earnest and Wry. The first is told in Arrest Me, and the second is the exciting story Officer Down. Fourth is Suspect Behavior, and fifth is On the Money.
Pete and Jim have been partnered for quite a while, and together they've seen it all. Between dealing with rogue insects and being flagged down by little kids looking for justice, they manage to stay busy on the watch. Additionally, Earnest and Wry deal with more serious issues as well, such as a particularly persnickety pooch and a mystery linked to a local college.
Through it all, the partners handle their calls with fairness, courtesy, and more than a hint of humor. But their first priority is professionalism as they patrol the streets and serve the citizens.

Pete and Jim patrol the streets, handling all sorts of calls and dealing with all sorts of people. As senior officer, Pete often takes the lead, but Jim is shaping up to be a fine cop in his own right.
Unfortunately, at the end of their shift, the officers face a situation that goes from bad to worse… resulting in the call that all law enforcement professionals hate to hear: “Officer down.”
