Sherlock Holmes and the Chilford Ripper
by Roger Jaynes
On a cold September evening, Dr. Watson receives an alarming telegram from the respectable Doctor Geoffrey Blake.
A monster is loose in the normally quiet Essex town of Chilford – a fiend who had already not only murdered, but mutilated three of the town’s inhabitants in the bloody style of the infamous Jack the Ripper.
And for no apparent reason.
The simple life of the villagers has been disrupted as a ripper lurks in the shadows, ready to pounce on his next victim.
Despite the efforts of the young Constable Newton’s attempts to catch the wicked killer, Doctor Blake decides to take the matter upon his hands and visits 221B Baker Street to disclose the ghastly events and convince Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to uncover the dreaded mystery before the killer strikes again.
The dangerous journey leads them to a group of five ex-servicemen who guard a troubling secret with the intention of suppressing the truth that could shake the whole town.
Holmes and Watson are forced to reconcile the dispute that has erupted between the residents as they carefully time their plan which will ultimately reveal the murderer’s identity.
Can the duo find the missing piece of the puzzle and expose the ripper before he destroys Chilford?
Or will the ripper find a way to strike again?

The First Shot (Lieutenant Kane – Dedicated to Death Series Book 1)
by E.H. Reinhard
For Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane, death is his life. If a single award existed for sinking himself into his work, he’d have two.
But the latest crime scene he’s called to, an old abandoned factory, leaves him with more bodies than leads. Three drug dealers are found shot to death—not an uncommon sight in the least. The problem lies with the pair of middle-aged women—bound, gagged, and executed—found at the same location.
Before he can sink his teeth into the initial investigation, Kane is called out to another multiple homicide. He comes up with only more questions when the second group of murders appears connected to the first.
As the lieutenant tracks down the few leads, he begins to get a clearer picture of those he seeks. That picture quickly turns crystal clear when Kane finds himself face-to-face with someone that “armed and dangerous” doesn’t even begin to describe.
