The Penguin Pool Murder
by Stuart Palmer
A dead stockbroker in a penguin tank leads Miss Withers to a shocking mystery
For the third graders at Jefferson School, a field trip is always a treat. But one day at the New York Aquarium, they get much more excitement than they bargained for. A pickpocket sprints past, stolen purse in hand, and is making his way to the exit when their teacher, the prim Hildegarde Withers, knocks him down with her umbrella. By the time the police and the security guards finish arguing about what to do with Chicago Lew, he has escaped, and Miss Withers has found something far more interesting: a murdered stockbroker floating in the penguin tank.
With the help of Detective Oscar Piper, this no-nonsense spinster embarks on her first of many adventures. The mystery is baffling, the killer dangerous, but for a woman who can control a gaggle of noisy third graders, murder isn’t frightening at all.
The Penguin Pool Murder is part of the Hildegarde Withers Mysteries series, which also includes Murder on the Blackboard and Murder on Wheels.

The Patriot Paradox: A Kurt Vetter CIA Spy Thriller
by William Esmont
Ex-CIA analyst, Kurt Vetter is no stranger to tragedy and loss. Swearing off any connections to a life he once lead, he retreats to South America–on a self-imposed exile. But when he receives a mysterious package of encrypted files from his dead brother, he’s drawn back into a dangerous world of treason and espionage–a world he swore he’d left behind for good.
It’s up to Kurt to uncover the message that his brother was desperate to convey–a message that could be the difference between life and death. When the files lead him across the world, he encounters Amanda Carter, an enigmatic woman linked directly to his brother, who just might have the information he needs to decipher what’s hidden inside the files. Together, they uncover a plot far bigger than anything he ever anticipated–a rogue CIA mission to detonate a nuclear bomb.
But with time running out and his brother’s assassins closing in, Amanda and Kurt must face this alone. With millions of innocent lives at stake, they race against the clock to stop the attack. If they fail, the results could be explosive.
