Overview

A fabulous jeweled egg made by Fabergé for the Russian imperial family disappears during an art gallery opening. Does the gallery owner have something to do with the crime? He’s had thefts from his other galleries, a pattern that retired private investigator Errol Seville believes is part of a scam to defraud the insurance company.

Or maybe the perpetrator is the thief that Errol spots casing the gallery, looking for an opportunity to relieve patrons of their expensive jewels. Has he branched out, stealing priceless objets d’art?

The scam turns bloody when murder enters the picture. Errol may be retired, but in this short story it’s clear that he still has his private eye chops.

Meet the Author

In elementary school, Janet Dawson wrote mysteries in longhand on lined binder paper, influenced by those blue-backed Nancy Drew books she devoured. Now Janet writes about private investigator Jeri Howard. Her first book, Kindred Crimes, won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America contest for Best Private Eye Novel, and was nominated for Shamus, Anthony and Macavity awards. Other books include Till The Old Men Die, Take A Number, Don't Turn Your Back On The Ocean, Nobody's Child, A Credible Threat, Where The Bodies Are Buried, A Killing At The Track, and the latest entry in the series, Bit Player.

Janet was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Colorado. With a journalism degree from the University of Colorado, she worked as a newspaper reporter, then joined the Navy. An enlisted journalist, she wrote news and features in public affairs offices in Guam and Pensacola, FL. As an officer, her duties took her to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lives in Alameda. Janet has a master's degree in history from California State University East Bay and can't think of anything she wants to study enough to go back to grad school. She currently works at the University of California.

    fine mystery anthology

    SCAM AND EGGS is a fine mystery anthology that contains mostly contemporary contributions, but also has two enjoyable historicals including a spin on First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln that will open readers¿ minds to this intriguing much maligned figure. The book also contains three well written Jeri Howard tales, which by itself would be a winner especially since the retired Seville couple is also in attendance (these awesome novels include KINDRED CRIMES and NOBODY¿S CHILD among the eight or so books in the series). The remaining tales include a military mystery and a modern day updating of a fairy tale relocated from Europe to San Francisco. Finally, this delightful ten-story collection includes three never before printed tales. Fans of short but suspenseful mysteries will gain much pleasure with Janet Dawson¿s strong aggregate.
