MYSTERY, CRIME, AND MAYHEM NOW IN ITS THIRD YEAR!

Always With Us

Crime has been with us forever. Chances are, that even as we approach the age of rocket ships and space habitats, it will follow us.

And we’ll keep trying to find better ways to fight crime. Or so I imagine in my short story, “Peacekeeping Colorado-Style in 2055.”

Come join me and six other contributors to this quarterly magazine as we explore the future side of crime in Always With Us.

JOLLY SEASON TREAT FROM DAWNA!

Jolly is what we want to be during December and FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd is ready to help us get there.

From now through December 24th, her short mystery set during the holiday season is bargain-priced at less than a dollar. For only ninety-nine cents, you get “Boot Scoot: A Dawna Shepherd Short Story.”

Boot Scoot by Diana Deverell

Dawna Shepherd loves her family, working as an FBI Special Agent, and playing basketball.

She’s celebrating Christmas in her home town when a bounty hunter pursues her college student brother home from Lubbock.

Certain that Fugitive Team Leader Tommy O’Brien is chasing the wrong quarry, Dawna stops him cold at the Shepherd front door.

But she knows O’Brien won’t give up. And all her crime-fighter instincts are screaming that the bounty hunter is going to ruin this holiday for someone she loves.

Can law-abiding Dawna find a way to save Christmas?

“Boot Scoot” was a finalist for the 2003 Macavity Award for best mystery short story.
