Overview

The Victorian Mansion Murders by John A. Miller, Jr.

Art Parker, an unemployed journalist, answers an ad for employment, but the ad has few details about what the job entails or where he’ll be working. He gets the job after an evening interview at a huge Victorian-style mansion miles from anywhere. The owner, an incredibly wealthy old man, hires Art as live-in writing coach for his teenage granddaughter.

That sounds like an easy, relaxing sort of job, at least until the next afternoon when Art and Mary Ann—she’s the granddaughter—find the housemaid dead on the girl’s bedroom floor. An out-of-control sheriff, a bizarrely named lawyer, a beautiful librarian, a marvelous cook, and a huge valet/gardener clutter the landscape and add a pile of confusion while Art and Mary Ann decide to do some detecting on their own. What do they turn up? Another body.

After enlisting the help of Mary Ann’s friend, Jennifer, the unlikely sleuths eventually solve both murders but not before nearly becoming victims themselves.

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.
