This is a specially priced box set of three mysteries in the Arthur Beautyman series (#1, #2, #3).


Arthur Beautyman, a computer hacker turned detective, is hunting a serial killer targeting modern day saints. Every two months, a new body turns up—and the world is left with one less good person.

Against him is an unscrupulous reality TV show, whose sole premise is that the police are corrupt and incompetent. As the intensifying public reaction pushes all of Beautyman’s resources to the limits, he dusts off his old habits—computer hacking—to dig up evidence he couldn’t find legally.

But when he accidently leaves a cyber-trail, he finds himself targeted by a member of his own department, who doesn't know the hacker she's tailing is in the office next door.

It's a deadly cat-and-mouse game set against the lights of Hollywood.


A grown man living in his mother's basement, disgraced detective Arthur Beautyman knows his life has fallen off a cliff.

But that doesn't mean he has to be happy about his mother's solution to his woes: volunteering him to solve a case for her favorite bridge partner.

The body of a young man who disappeared three years before is discovered drowned in an icy Minnesota late on the day of his father's restaurant grand opening. But he’s only been dead for three days. Where has he been all this time? And what is the connection between his death and the new restaurant?

To get his mother off his back, Beautyman agrees to take the case. That's when he discovers she wants to be his partner on the case as well ...

With a recipe of unique cast of characters and terribly dysfunctional families, The Marinara Murders seemlessly blends comedy and mystery into one very enjoyable read.


During the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, Arthur Beautyman and his mother Ruth are spotted by a long lost friend of Ruth’s, who miraculously produces Ruth’s wallet, which had been lost in the crowded mall.

Despite Ruth’s waning memory of her old friend, in the spirit of the season Ruth invites her and her adult son into her home for the night. Only the next morning—when the con artists have fled and Ruth’s identity and entire life savings gone—do Ruth and Arthur realize they have mere hours to find them before they forever slip out of their grasp.

Through the challenges of their own relationship as mother and son and their combined wit, bravery, and techie know-how, Arthur and Ruth discover a web of betrayal, drama, and crime that pits them against a dangerous and destructive family feud … just in time for Christmas.

    I don't know why I brought this book. Maybe it was because it was 99 cents for three. But there is a lot of those deals out here. I think it was the blurb computer hacker turn detective. I am sure glad I did. I love the first book When Saints go Dying. I thought I had everything figure out but how he caught the killer was great. A big surprise. Now reading the second one. Yes I certainly recommend this one.

    Amazing stories!

    I'm very proud to be the first to rate these 3 mysteries. Erik Hanberg is great author. I do not know him and was not paid for this review. I was skeptical as no one had purchased this book and left a rating yet. I started reading the first book right on B&N site and it had me hooked. This was not a free book. I paid 99 cents, so expected some juicy fiction. Erik did not disappoint. I could not put these three down. Mr. Beautyman was quite the exciting main character in all three books. He was a Detective in CA trying to solve murders. The next book adds his mother, Mrs. Beautyman. You will all think of someone's mother when you read about her. She is something else. I kept waiting for her to serve Jello and traditional pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. All 3 books are 'to die for!'
