Roanoke Island Murders: A Modern Retelling of The Maltese Falcon

by Joe C. Ellis

Two unscrupulous antiquity dealers, Hugh Underdonk and Alfred Bacon, hope to get their hands on the Dare Diary, a long lost journal written by Eleanor Dare, one of the original members of Roanoke Island’s Lost Colony. Detective Weston Wolf is drawn into this web of deception and murder by a beautiful woman who claims to be a descendant of Eleanor. As the bodies pile up, Wolf must untangle this web to save his own neck.

In the spirit of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, Joe C. Ellis has weaved together a fast-paced noir detective novel set on the Outer Banks with a menagerie of unusual characters. This novel launches Book 1 of the Weston Wolf — Outer Banks Detective Series.

Dogcatcher in the Rye

by Ellen Riggs

Turning a hobby farm into a quaint country inn is a piece of cake compared to solving a murder.

Ivy Galloway may not know an alpaca from a llama, but nothing’s going to stop her from pursuing her dream of opening a farm-themed inn in her hometown of Clover Grove. Not after what she went through to rescue Keats, her brilliant border collie, and flee the big city.

When Keats finds a body pushing up daisies in her rye field, however, the murder puts a blight on Ivy’s plans to welcome her first official guests in just three weeks. The police chief refuses to rush his investigation. Does he really believe she’s a suspect or is he just holding a grudge over what happened in high school?

To clear her name, Ivy starts digging up clues. The former HR exec is no stranger to interviewing, and Keats is a dog who loves a job. As she juggles sleuthing with getting the inn ready to launch, she almost reaches the end of her tether. With her beloved farm’s very future on the line can she solve the case before the killer comes after her next?

This twisty, laugh-out-loud cozy mystery series for animal lovers will keep you up all night reading.
