ISTORIA BOOKS PRESENTS:
LUNCH READS: TWO SHORT MYSTERY STORIES FOR ONLY 99 CENTS
In this second edition of short stories offered by Istoria Books (eBooks You Want to Read at Prices You Want to Pay ™), readers can gobble up a guilty pleasure of a collection--two mystery capers by master storyteller Gary Alexander that will leave them smiling and smacking their lips, wanting more.
SKULLDUGGERY STEW by Gary Alexander
Gary’s dry wit and penchant for the absurd are at their height in this tale whose characters and plot might seem familiar. Think Hansel and Gretel meet The Food Network. But this is no children’s cautionary fable. It’s a cauldron of humor and droll observation. As you roll toward the end, you’ll start thinking, “no, he won’t possibly…” Oh yes, my friends, he will….
ROSWELL GIRL by Gary Alexander
Two characters with their own long-hidden secrets -- an obnoxious sports radio host and an older woman, trying to make ends meet through tailoring and blackmail -- collide in this O.Henryesque tale of cosmic justice.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR, GARY ALEXANDER
To Istoria Books readers, Gary is known for his moving and humorous Vietnam War novel, Dragon Lady. But Gary has always been a mystery writer, penning hundreds of stories for various mystery magazines over the years, as well as several mystery novels featuring stand-up comic Buster Hightower (who won’t use blue material but never met a lawyer joke he didn’t like).
If these short stories whet your appetite, take a look at Gary’s DRAGON LADY, a book that combines his skill as a humorist with a heartbreaking tale of love and war.
