Kitt PeakA Thomas Mullins MysteryBy Al SarrantonioThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the drop-down menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) Retirement does not agree with former lieutenant Thomas Mullin. So when he receives a whiskey-stained letter detailing the disappearance of his friend's daughter Abby, he jumps on the first train to Arizona. Folks around town think Abby has gone back to the reservation where she was raised, yet the more Mullin investigates, the more suspicious he becomes. But even his agile mind and gift for deduction can't prepare him for the wild legends of the Papagos or the terrifying truth of what's really in store for Abby. PRAISE FOR KITT PEAK: "Back for a second adventure is Thomas Mullins, the black cavalry officer of "West Texas" (1991). Retired now and living in turn-of-the-century Boston on a pension, Mullins whiles away the endless hours with his beloved Sherlock Holmes and his memories. But a letter from an old army friend rouses Mullins from his lethargy. Bill Adams' half-Indian daughter is missing. Would Mullins, the best tracker Adams ever knew, come to Arizona to help find her? By the time Mullins arrives--with former trooper Lincoln Reeves in tow--his pal Adams has also disappeared. As Mullins' fictional mentor might say, "The game's afoot!" This is at once a stirring adventure, a mystery, and a wonderful portrait of a proud, intelligent black man making his way through a troubled, often hostile world. Highly recommended." -- BOOKLIST

Summer CoolA Jack Paine MysteryBy Al SarrantonioThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the drop- down menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) Jack Paine was on what passed for a vacation, or maybe it was a regrouping, an opportunity to forget the events of the last year and especially of the last month.  When the phone rang, he tried to ignore it.  There were only a few people who knew where to reach him, and none of them would try.  But the phone kept ringing.  And Jack Paine finally answered it. Of course, it was bad news.  Bob Petty, a friend from Paine's days on the force, had disappeared.  Petty's wife, Terry, knew that he hadn't gone undercover; they'd worked out a code for situations like that.  All Bob had said in his last phone call to his wife was, "If you ever come near me I'll kill you and the kids." Jack Paine is a retired cop with a private license and a telescope he uses to watch the heavens.  It's a simple life, good when he's got clients, and he manages when he doesn't.  But this call was leading to something Paine wasn't sure he could manage:  Now that Petty had disappeared, bodies were beginning to appear and the trail always led back to his old friend. Paine doesn't think his friend has turned.  But something is very wrong, something that goes beyond the deep-rooted corruption he beings to uncover, something that goes deeper...and much further back. And in the Arizona desert, where day's heat turns deathly cold at night, and where the stars scream for attention, Jack Paine turns over the last stone...
