The Blurb

Who knew death could be so eclectic?

Relish this mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up of short stories.

Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.

Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as a book version of appetisers or starters, hors d’oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be read as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze – in its own right.

There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, England, Los Angeles, San Francisco, The Great Lakes, Las Vegas, the Nevada desert, Mexico and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.

These stories come from an international cast of authors; some with bestselling books, others are emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.

But one thing binds them together: they know how to tell a story.

The ten authors who have contributed to the anthology are:

Stephen Bentley

Greg Alldredge

Kelly Artieri

Robbie Cheadle

Michael Spinelli

L. Lee Kane

Kay Castaneda

Aly Locatelli

Justin Bauer

Posthumously by ‘G’

The stories include the 2019 SIA Award-Winning Murder Mystery Short Story ‘The Rose Slayer’ by Stephen Bentley.

Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lays behind them. By the time you finish the book, you will agree the result is a mesmerising murder mystery mash-up.

Get it now.

Ten authors with ten varying styles of writing have come together to compile this interesting book of murder mysteries. There was a lovely introduction to each author before their stories were shared, adding a bit about the stories, which added to the anticipation of reading them. I enjoyed many of these stories. An eclectic mix of thriller, sci-fi, Victorian era, and dark thrillers – something for everyone from both seasoned and new authors.

My absolute favorite stories came from Robbie Cheadle who is a wonderful multi-genre author who shared two chilling stories of fictionalized, yet based on true stories – making the stories all the more horrifying – The Chimney Sweep Boys and Justice is Never Served, gripping stories! I was also taken in with author Stephen Bentley’s – The Rose Slayer. As Bentley’s past of being a detective and trial attorney really shone through with the subject matter and the eerie ending. A few other stories which grabbed me, such as Justin Bauer’s – Cancelled, and Michael Spinelli’s Monitaur, which will never have you looking at baby monitors in the same way.

All in all a lovely collection of stories sure to keep many genre readers satisfied.

Our collection of over 20 murder mystery short stories has been well received and in a short time has gathered over 25 excellent reviews.

You will hear during the show that the host, Linda, asks me for my favorite story. Wow! Talk about being put on the spot, and with no disrespect to any of my fellow authors in the collection, for they are all talented, I had to choose Michael Spinelli’s Monitaur. It was well-written, spooky, and had a really surprising ending.

Linda also asked me to choose one story to read a short excerpt. I chose my The Rose Slayer, not through ego, but as it’s my story, I knew I could do it justice in a public reading that may be listened to by thousands.

I hope you enjoy the show. Check out those glowing reviews and buy it!

Here’s an idea – why not watch the book trailer at the same time you listen to the interview? Just remember to mute the soundtrack on the video 🙂

Thank you!
