When you do your part to kill a necromancer, death isn’t the final goodbye...
By day, solo street lawyer Nicole Farmer represents the down and out in the tough town of Amistad, Connecticut. Bankruptcies, divorces, criminal defense, foreclosures…Nicole’s clients are the hardest-luck cases in a hard-luck rustbelt city.
And by night, unquiet spirits call to her on the dream plane, seeking revenge and healing…and demanding that she solve the coldest cases of all.
Powered by coffee and a sparkly pink cell phone with uncanny mojo, Nicole was made for trouble and badassery. But even she can’t go 24/7 without a break. Sooner or later, she knows she will crack.
Everything changes when Evangeline, the spirit of a murdered young woman, invades Nicole’s dreams. Her killer, a power-hungry and psychopathic warlock, wants to strike again.
Nicole commits to hunting Evangeline’s killer…and opening the Night Docket means all hell breaks loose in Amistad.
Attacked by enemies living and undead, Nicole must face her own past, call in all her favors, and find a way to achieve cosmic justice -- without losing her own life and soul…

London, 1877. The pinnacle of Empire. A city of glamour, hidden passion, and danger…
To the Manor Born…
Lord Aramis Russe’s lineage, lands, and fortune could not keep his wife and young son from an early grave. Years later, the devastated Lord Russe intends to grieve alone, but Prince Edward himself plays royal matchmaker -- and orders the loyal earl to make an honest woman of one of his beautiful favorites…
Born for Trouble…
Dowager Countess Clementine de Winter, known widely as an American heiress, in fact conceals a shocking secret from the cream of London high society. Her life is in danger, and only Lord Russe can save her.
A love born of desperation…
A secret society, a hatred hatched by war, and a grief so terrible it can hardly be endured. Clementine’s courage and beauty cannot preserve her life or honor.
Can the battle-scarred Lord Russe shield Clementine from danger -- and will he win her heart?
Welcome to the second issue of Mystery, Crime, and Mayhem, and the wonderful world of Thieves.
For many of us, our introduction to mystery began either by watching a detective show on TV, or when we fell in love with characters like Phillip Marlow and the Continental Op in old books. This is the white knight, the only one with morals in the story, the one person who will set the world right.
Come with us and explore new takes on the traditional PI story, whether they're old school and solving a current day crime or sent on a case far away from the city into Appalachia. And enjoy some historic PIs as well, all with voice and perspectives you've never seen before.
Enjoy issue #1 of MCM - and be ready for more to come!
