  • My Dead Sister from Tacoma

    Title: “My Dead Sister from Tacoma”
    Type: Novelette
    Published: Bad Kitten Press
    Date: January 2015


    Karl Cone, private detective, lover of karaoke, always getting into trouble (it’s his business), wakes to find a dead girl in his room: Blonde hair, light brown eyes, about 25. Adorably cute and damnably dead. Who is she, how did she get there? Join Cone in this quick moving, funny novelette (from Edgar Award nominated mystery author Stephen Ross), as he attempts to unravel the puzzle, and get into even more trouble.

    This is a 12 chapter, 64 page (in the print edition) novelette, and you’ll read it in an evening. May I suggest a bottle of red wine to go with it, and maybe a box of chocolates. In fact, absolutely, a box of chocolates. One can never get enough boxes containing chocolates.
