A rich, attractive femme fatale.
A missing husband.
A rollicking ride to a dark and daring ending.

REEL ESTATE RIP-OFF
Lights! Camera! Reed!

A mysterious death.

More danger for Reed than a film noir plot.

THE MALTESE FELON
When an attractive female client begs Reed Ferguson to find her prize-winning Maltese show dog stolen from her back yard, Reed suspects he may be channeling Ace Ventura: Pet Detective rather than his hero, Humphrey Bogart. It sounds like a simple case, but things take a dangerous turn and Reed discovers that man's-best-friend can attract some decidedly unfriendly characters!

ELVIS AND THE SPORTS CARD CHEAT
Reed Ferguson returns in an outrageously fun short story!

Perry Rawlings, an Elvis impersonator, has his prize Mickey Mantle baseball card stolen. Who is the culprit? This tale will keep you guessing!
