Overview

The Beach House Murders by John A. Miller, Jr.

What could be more fun than a day at the beach? A month at the beach, perhaps? That’s what teenager Mary Ann Markham, her live-in writing coach Art Parker, and her best friend Jennifer Martin think when Mary Ann convinces her wealthy grandfather to rent a fancy beach house for the entire month of July near the small East Coast town of Shipwreck.

But then strange things begin to happen, especially with the appearance of several not very well preserved bodies, an unexpected shooting or two, and a murder with mob overtones. Meanwhile, Art becomes close friends with a local emergency room doctor named Marsha, and he and the girls become somewhat less than close friends with the local police chief, primarily because of the bodies they keep finding. Then Mary Ann and Jennifer disappear shortly before a major hurricane hits the area.

Could it be retired mobster “Little” Tony Gambolo, who lives a short distance down the beach, that’s behind all these deaths and the disappearance of the girls? Art, with Marsha’s help, is at his wits’ end trying to find Mary Ann, Jennifer, and the answer to who’s behind the killings.

About the Author

Before retiring in late 2004 John A. Miller, Jr. had worked for more than forty years in the fields of computers and telecommunications at several major corporations and universities. However, he always had a desire to write, so armed with a new computer in 1991 he sat down and began writing his first novel, Pima, which was published as a paperback several years later. Even though that paperback is long out of print John has continued writing as a sideline, first with five more novels in the Pima series, and then with several other novels and short stories.

Because he had lived in southern Arizona for a total of nearly ten years, first while serving in the U.S. Army in the mid-1960s and later while working for a Government contractor and then a private corporation, John decided to set his Pima series of novels in an area he knew well, the mountains and deserts of Arizona. Later short stories and novels are set in other locales.

Now with the advantages of electronic publishing John has decided to make his books available in those formats.

Great waiting room material. Interesting but not so captivating that you could miss hearing your name being called.
