Overview

This volume holds a collection of seven of the author’s finest little pieces of mystery, intrigue and suspense. They span the range from short short stories to a short novel. Many are complete with the twists and turns for which his writing is well known.
The longest features a college professor who is accused of murder and is assisted via the internet and burn phones by two students from his criminal justice course. He is also guided through the ins and out of surviving in a violent slum, where he goes to hide, by a young, extremely savvy street kid. It explores his feelings about life and commitment and showcases the skills he honed as a police detective earlier in life.
Other stories feature tales about committing the perfect crime, a mentally challenged man racing to call off a hit he had set up on himself, a deathbed confession from an unlikely source, and a group of high school alumni attempting to prank one of their former classmates who, as a teen, had fancied himself a detective of some skill.

Editorial Reviews

email - Robert Carter
This volume has a nice selection of mysteries both in terms of length and type of story. There are thought pieces, intrigue, suspense, and plain old mystery. Many take unexpected twists and turns. All are well designed as is this author's style. The reader will meet a wide variety of fascinating characters - old and young, smart and dull, sly and straightforward. Tom Gnagey excels at the short story and here are seven of his best.

Meet the Author

In his more than 75 books and 250 stories, the author applies his background in education and clinical psychology to bring a sensitivity and understanding about the human condition to his story lines. He chooses to write about teen life and struggles; fostering mutually productive relationships between youngsters and older adults; mysteries and action/adventure for all ages; and mainstream adult and young adult fiction. He lives his life and writes from a base of positive social values (not to be confused with a religious point of view). Writing and speaking are his passions. He will tell you that carefully crafting mysteries with twists is one of his favorite literary undertakings and that is supported by the fact that a third of his novels and nearly half of his short stores explore that genre.
Pen names include: Garrison Flint, Gary Hutchison, and Marc Miller
