SLEEP WITH THE DEVIL
Les Ferron is a heel and he knows it. And he’s stumbled on a real goldmine this time. Posing as a Bible salesman named Paul Parrish, he is poised to marry the rich teetotalling farmer’s daughter, Amy. No one is going to stand in his way. Not Amy’s previous beau. Not Lydia, who knows him as the hard-drinking, loan shark enforcer he really is. And certainly not the crippled ex-police detective—the loan shark himself. Because if gospel-spouting Paul Parrish is going to become the successful suitor of young Amy, Les Ferron has to disappear. For good.
WAKE UP TO MURDER
Jim Charters’ life changes the day everything goes to hell on his birthday. First he’s fired from his job. Then his wife serves him shoe-tough liver for dinner, completely forgetting that he is just turned thirty-five. Angry at the world at large, he heads off for the local bar and doesn’t stop until he wakes up with his ex-boss’s fulsome secretary in bed with him the next morning. And then a hard guy named Mantin knocks on the door and hands him the $10,000 he had promised Charters the night before. Trouble is, Charters has no idea where he was, who he spoke to, or what he promised the night before! But it doesn’t look good.
When Mark Harris wakes up after a 5-day drunk in a Chicago rescue mission, he has no idea how he got there. He remembers shooting Maria, his wife, and he knows that her brother Cass is out to get him. He knows that his career as a successful California lawyer is over. When Mrs. Hill and her assistant show up at the mission with food for the men, he decides to introduce himself as a former client of his who had disappeared. What he doesn’t expect is an invitation to her house and the offer of the job as her chauffer. It’s as good a place as any to hide out from the cops and the vengeful Cass. But May Hill is a woman with a past, and this is no ordinary house—it is a boarded-up prison—where Harris finds himself in a trap more deadly he can imagine!
