The Deadly Dog Show
by Jerold Last

The sixth book in the popular Roger and Suzanne mystery series finds Roger and Bruce hired to go undercover impersonating the owner and handler of a Champion German Short-haired Pointer named Juliet to investigate certain irregularities that might be occurring at dog shows in California.

To complicate this case the bodies of dead judges start popping up and Suzanne picks up a mysterious stalker sending her most unwelcome gifts. Throw in drug cartels and corrupt cops and it sounds like a typical job for our detective couple.

The Deadly Dog Show can be read as a stand-alone novel. Fans of the series should enjoy reconnecting with characters they’ve met in the previous books. This whodunit novel should appeal to mystery fans, dog lovers, and anyone who wants to learn more about the world of dog show conformation competition.

Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, Cozy, Animals, Women’s Fiction, Women Sleuths

Rum, Cigars, and Corpses
(Roger and Suzanne Mystery Series Book 13)
by Jerold A. Last

Roger and Suzanne have to solve a cold, but still hazardous, case in a hot climate. Roger’s newest client was fired after leading a disastrous tour to Cuba during which a tourist died in a devastating accident. Our detective couple joins a subsequent identical tour of Cuba to seek evidence the catastrophe was murder, not an accident.

There’s no shortage of suspects in this perilous case, including the Cuban Intelligence Services, the CIA, a sprinkling of additional spies waiting for them in Havana, and several suspicious characters traveling on their tour. Danger lurks as they investigate the nightmare scenario that the victim was targeted by a deadly terrorist conspiracy. The author recently visited Cuba on a similar person-to-person tour, so all of the details about locations are authentic and the background is real.

This book is part of the Roger and Suzanne Mystery Series (all books can be read in any order).

The Body In The Alpaca Pasture
(Roger and Suzanne mystery series Book 11)
by Jerold Last

Someone shot a modern-day gaucho in the back at an isolated alpaca breeding facility in the small town of Molinos, high in the Andes Mountains in Argentina’s northwest province of Salta. In this isolated area far off the beaten track for tourists, everybody at the research facility had an opportunity to shoot the victim without being observed committing the crime.

This isn’t a crime that will be solved by CSI. There aren’t any fingerprints, footprints, a murder weapon, or other traditional clues conveniently left around the cadaver by the killer. The local police (both of them) are glorified meter maids, totally untrained to solve a mysterious murder like this one. By the time Roger and Suzanne arrive the corpse has long since been sent to the nearest hospital for an autopsy, which has been lost by the local bumbling authorities.

What was the motive? Why was the victim targeted? Was it murder for gain?

Roger and Suzanne interrogate the remaining staff members at the alpaca breeding facility as they seek evidence proving the existence of a sinister international conspiracy to explain the reason Oswaldo Pepin died. This fast-paced whodunit mystery features an exotic setting, a complex murder case, and a complicated and suspenseful plot.

Science Can Be Murder
(Roger and Suzanne Mysteries Book 10)
by Jerold Last

Science Can Be Murder combines three books from the Roger and Suzanne South American Mystery series into one omnibus volume. It starts with the first book in the series, the novel The Ambivalent Corpse, an ideal introduction to the series characters. Parts of a dismembered corpse are found on a rocky stretch of beach in Montevideo, Uruguay, apportioned equally between Memorials to a German cruiser sunk in World War II and to the Jews killed in the Holocaust.

Roger and Suzanne travel from Uruguay to Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay to solve this baffling and grotesque murder case. In the novella The Body in the Parking Structure a Bolivian colleague of Suzanne’s is found dead in a parking garage on the UCLA campus. There are possible ties to a small biotechnology company in Los Angeles. The third, and final, novel is The Origin of Murder, set in Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands.

As Roger and Suzanne retrace the path that Charles Darwin sailed and walked more than 175 years ago, the body count increases almost as fast as the clues. The stories are all tied together by Suzanne’s skills and interest in biomedical science (like the author, she’s a biochemist on the faculty of The University of California).

The couple are on a luxury cruise through the Galapagos Islands when Suzanne finds a woman’s body with a couple of bullet holes in it floating in the Pacific Ocean.

There’s a ship full of suspects, including a shady DEA agent and two nubile sisters from San Francisco, with more dead bodies to come. The supporting cast includes their young son Robert, Bruce the nanny, and Paraguayan policeman Eduardo Garcia.

Join our detectives on a visit to the Galapagos Islands as Charles Darwin might have seen them on his historical voyage on HMS Beagle, and visit the ancient Incan city and capital of Ecuador, Quito, high in South America’s Andes Mountains. Series fans and new readers will enjoy this exciting mystery novel, which can be enjoyed as a standalone entry to the series.

Unbearably Deadly
(Roger and Suzanne South American Mystery Series Book 9)
by Jerold A. Last

Roger and Suzanne take a working vacation at Denali National Park, six million acres of natural wilderness in northern Alaska, to investigate the deaths of a couple they had previously met in Peru and Chile.

The FBI investigation concludes the couple was killed during an accidental attack by a wild bear. But Roger’s partner Vincent Romero has reasons to doubt whether the official conclusion is correct. Roger and Suzanne find themselves stalking a wily killer, who is in turn stalking them.

Who murdered the couple and why were they killed?

Far from their usual haunts for investigations, South America and California, can Roger and Suzanne figure out whodunit in a case they begin with absolutely no clues, no suspects, and a crime scene larger than the entire State of Massachusetts?

This book is part of the Roger and Suzanne Mystery Series (all books can be read in any order).

Cold Coffee Café Spotlight Interview With Author Jerold A. Last

The author is a scientist on the faculty of the University of California and a big fan of California mystery novels. He taught a popular Freshman Seminar on California Mystery novels for several years at U.C. Davis.

A quick search of Amazon will turn up more than just the Roger and Suzanne South American Mystery Series authored by Jerry. You’ll also find several technical books and articles in biochemistry previously edited or authored by him. The novels in his Roger Bowman-Suzanne Foster South American Mystery Series, The Ambivalent Corpse, The Surreal Killer, The Matador Murders, The Deadly Dog Show, The Origin of Murder and Unbearably Deadly are all available as Kindle e-books. So are the shorter novella, The Body in the Bed, and novelette, The Body in the Parking Structure. A novel-length anthology of short stories entitled Five Quickies For Roger And Suzanne and an Omnibus Volume Science Can Be Murder are also available on Amazon. All of the books feature Roger, Suzanne, and various other recurring characters from the series. Reader feedback for all of these books is appreciated, so please take a few minutes to write a book review after you finish reading any of these stories.

Jerry has loved reading mystery novels, especially the P.I. genre based in California, all his life. He started writing mysteries a few years ago when his wife Elaine suggested that he needed to have something to do when he retired – it doesn’t look like he’s retiring in the foreseeable future, but it’s never too soon to begin!

The settings and locales for all of the South American mystery novels, The Ambivalent Corpse, The Surreal Killer, The Matador Murders, and The Origin of Murder are authentic; the author lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay for several months each, and selected several of the most interesting locations he found for Roger and Suzanne to visit. The Ambivalent Corpse takes place in Montevideo and several of the countries surrounding Uruguay. The Surreal Killer visits Northern Chile’s Atacama Desert and Peru. The Matador Murders revisits Montevideo and also visits Santiago, Chile, where the author has been several times for collaborative research and teaching. The Origin of Murder takes place in the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean 600 miles west of Ecuador, with brief stops in Quito and Mexico’s Sonora Desert. The novelette The Body in the Bed (Montevideo) and two of the Five Quickies, The Empanada Affair (Salta, Argentina) and The Haunted Gymnasium (Fortaleza, Brazil) also feature South American locales.

Jerry and wife Elaine live in Northern California, where Elaine breeds prize-winning German Shorthaired Pointers who have served as the inspiration for The Deadly Dog Show and a future novel entitled Hunter Down (2015) in the series.

The author’s blog at http://rogerandsuzannemysteries.blogspot.com describes the background and birth of Jerry’s books, Jerry’s, Elaine’s, and the dog’s lives, and all things mysterious. Please stop by to visit it and take a look.

Interview:

What makes you proud to be a writer from California?  I’m from Northern California, where we’ve lived for more than half my life.  I don’t know if proud is the right word but I enjoy sharing my experiences with my readers, whether they are places I’ve lived and visited, or what I’ve learned from my wife and dogs about German shorthaired pointers.

What or who inspired you to become a writer?  I’ve enjoyed reading what are usually called California mysteries, especially private eye novels, all my life.  I think Perry Mason was my first hero, with Philip Marlowe close behind.

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage?  Yes.  I’ve lived and worked in South America, especially Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile, which serve as the backdrop for several of my books.  And, did I mention, my wife Elaine has been breeding and showing German shorthaired pointers for as long as I’ve known her?

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published?  I started writing my first mystery novel about five or six years ago.  I’ve also published about 250 papers in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, as well as editing quite a few books and journals.

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process?  The people I’ve met—real and virtual—fellow writers, readers, Facebook and other social media friends.

What has been your most rewarding experience in your publishing journey?  Probably discovering the world of independent publishing, especially via Amazon Kindle and Createspace.

How many published books do you have?  I currently have eight novels, three novellas, and an anthology of shorter stories, all featuring private eye Roger Bowman and his scientist wife, Suzanne Foster Bowman as the protagonists.

Novels:

Abra Cadaver
Rum, Cigars, and Corpses
Hunter Down
Unbearably Deadly
The Origin of Murder
The Deadly Dog Show
The Matador Murders
The Surreal Killer
The Ambivalent Corpse

Novellas
The Body in the Bed
The Body in the Alpaca Pasture
The Body in the Parking Structure

Anthology:
Five Quickies for Roger and Suzanne

*****There’s also an Omnibus Volume of two of the novels and a novella: Science Can Be Murder.  All of these books are available from Amazon Kindle; the two dog-related novels and the Cuban novel are also published in paperback versions on Createspace.

Do you come up with your title(s) before or after you write the manuscript?  Usually before, but I’ve done it both ways.

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre?  My preferred genre is Mystery/Thriller/Suspense; often (but not always) International Mystery.  The genre has been my favorite as a reader all my life.

Which book title would you like featured in this interview?  “Rum, Cigars, and Corpses”

What was your inspiration, spark or light bulb moment that inspired you to write the book (one book) that you are seeking promotion for?  Taking a people-to-people tour of Cuba last year.  We toured more than half the island, as well as spending several days seeing Havana.  I saw it as the perfect setting for a murder mystery.

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors?  Keep writing.  You learn by doing.

Who is your favorite author and why?  Robert B. Parker or Ross MacDonald.  I have enjoyed reading all their books.  They create worlds I can believe and become immersed in set against localities (Boston, Southern California) I’ve lived in and know well.

The Altar Boy by Phil Stephens

Black-robed nuns, priests, bishops, the select fraternity of Altar Boys, and the ancient ceremonies of the Catholic Church.

Music of the 60s, boyhood shenanigans, Cootie doctors, and coming of age. Set in the socially and politically tumultuous period of the 1960s, The Altar Boy is the fictionalized tale of Carl Sanders, a funny, sensitive kid, who s caught in the middle when his family is fractured by his parents faltering marriage and the appearance of a powerful priest.

We follow Carl’s confusion and pain as he watches the pious façade of the Church fall away to reveal unholy carte blanche, pain and grief. The book opens in the late 1980s. Carl and his brother down beer after beer at a favorite pub, trying to piece together their family s chaotic past. The stakes are high someone is about to return after a 20-year absence, threatening to re-ignite the family conflict. As the brothers painful recollections of their past become more traumatic, Carl drifts back in time to the era he tried for so many years to forget.

The story is realistic, poignant, and at times very funny. Stephens shines a timely spotlight on the then-unquestioned power of the Church, while taking the reader back to the 60s era of rock & roll, Catholic schools, social upheaval, and boyhood pranks.

Review: Named the gold medal winner in the 2016 International Publisher Awards for Best Contemporary Novel, The Altar Boy is garnering rave reviews from readers everywhere.  In the video on the Phil Stephens author page, the author is interviewed by popular talk radio host Jordan Rich about the book — and the real-life story behind it.

Life Is A Cocktail: Reality With A Dash Of Imagination by Steven Redhead

Life really is quite like a cocktail, each person adds the various component parts, then mixes them up to get their known reality. Ingredients like imagination, dreams, wishes, hopes, aspirations, ideas, et cetera can be included as seen fit; any combination of things can be added to the melting pot as decided, then just mix it all up to see how things turn out.

“Life Is A Cocktail” covers different situations that tend to occur in life; with an insight for how to think about and deal with what evolves. When looking for answers or inspiration external stimuli can influence an intuitive response that becomes the seeds for a potential solution. That is the intention of ‘Life Is A Cocktail’, that inspirational benefits will evolve from reading sections of the book that are relevant to what is being experienced.

Much like a jigsaw puzzle, the individual elements required for success need to be collected in the right order to form the desired result. The combination of these various factors in the form of what you seek and pursue, the things you learn, the places you live and visit, what you acquire, all the individual parts that constitute your life are the components of your life’s cocktail. You decide the individual contents, how they are combined perfectly or in dissonance, compatible or otherwise.

Life is an experiment of learning to create your desires within your known reality, perfecting this ability is paramount for achieving a satisfactory life of purpose. Not wasting or allowing chances, potential, or opportunities to go unaddressed is the way to achieving your true heart’s desires. What you attract then capture to enliven your life to give meaning to desires is imperative and will make all the difference.

Life really is about practicing creation; creating wonderful memories, creating wonder for others, creating joy and peace. The point of all this, as with anything, is the value that is created and remains at the end of the day, basically the extent and quality of the memories created.

Life Is Simply A Game by Steven Redhead

Life is indeed a game that we all play to pass time; simply a series of days strung together, made up of how you planned or decided to spend the moments. Like any game how well it is played or whether life’s circumstances are interpreted accurately, then used to the best advantage, makes losers and winners to varying degrees.

Senseless insanity is alive and well within the world. The world is awash with unruly forces, that if not intent upon harming you do desire to become a destabilizing force, either temporarily or over the long term. We are all participants in a charade, how life evolves and turns out all depend on how well the game is played.

It is not wise or ideal to treat life like a game of chance, a random roll of the dice that can determine unpredictable outcomes. The cost of success is the careful application of well thought out concepts and ideas.

Like any game preparation is critical; understanding the rules, knowing how to manipulate the dynamics at play efficiently to ones own advantage, understanding the intricacies of the rules and how to capitalize upon or create opportunities, pursuing whatever circumstances are present to maximize whatever potential exists to the best advantage.

The potential opportunities in life are only limited by the inability to firstly comprehend them and secondly to fully utilize personal abilities to maximize the potential that is available. Don’t wait for special times to evolve, rather create them in accordance with your true desires to experience what you wish to make real.

Much like any game, the game of life has things that can be obtained, or things that can be lost. How the game is played, the value of the stakes, the opposing factions all come to dictate an outcome, be that favorable or lacking any resemblance of being lucky. A life lived based upon any reliance on luck or fate being favorable is tempting only to the over optimistic, or those extremely lucky ones or who were fortunate in the past and believe that good fortune will continue in the future.

While it takes resources to control the world, the control of your own specific world environment is really within your potential to achieve. How you choose to control your world, as well as to what extent your desires are put into action, determine whether your life will meet your wishes or not. The amount of thought and energy you exhort, the persistence of that effort, all comes to determine whether and to what degree what you want is what you actually get.

In life you may win or loose at times, it’s basically just like playing a game; the right mentality is chancing the wheel of life by trusting and ensuring you will win just the same.

The Solution: Keys To Life by Steven Redhead

Are you living the life that you always imagined, the life that you really desire? Can you realize your dreams, or are they gradually slipping away from you?

Life is indeed a wondrous journey, but modern living has caused many to loose their way, drifting far from their intended life. Start to create the life you live as it was originally intended to be lived, free of the chains created by modern society, a life built upon joy and bliss.

Stop surrendering the decisions controlling your life by allowing others to interfere with your future, you have the right to make all the choices concerning how you experience your life. Start living the life that you deserve by taking back control over your destiny.

Direct your desires towards creating a life that you truly deserve, realizing your dreams, creating the things that you want, gaining the know-how into what life is really all about.

When planning a holiday most people take care of all the details in advance, booking flights, arranging transport, hotel accommodation, tour guides, et cetera. Yet in life, the greatest journey that everyone will ever make, most people don’t prepare or plan their life course as well as they should; they don’t work to create a life of joy, peace, health and wealth.

Develop the seeds for thought that will be the basis to create a new and richer life for yourself. Richness is not financial, but rather a life of bliss, something money can’t buy.

Take care of every detail of your life, leaving no stone unturned, never just scratch the surface of anything you undertake, do it fully, until it is entirely completed, this is the only way to avoid regrets.

Life was never meant to be difficult, it was meant to be a wondrous adventure, that ideal is traded for whatever exists because of complacency when whatever occurs is accepted uncompromisingly. For many the status quo is far more acceptable than taking the supposed risks of change.

You can’t change anything that has gone by, but living life to its full extent and purposes is truly a joy to carry with you forever. The things that really matter must be clearly identified, you do the have an influence upon determining them.

Each of us are creators with the potential to achieve even the wildest dreams if the necessary effort is simply put into achieving or obtaining the things desired. Consider the directions to take to begin the journey back to your true life path.

The purpose and meaning of your life are to give purpose and meaning to life; to find out not only who you are but also who you have the potential to be, then pursue that goal. Open your mind to the infinite possibilities that do exist for you. Born through your dreams, then crystallized into form by your desires, given impetus by your expectations, then made real through your beliefs.

Life is made up of chances to make choices, decisions what you wish to do; the accumulated result of those choices is what is called your life.

The Laws Of Creation: Create The Life That Your
Truly Desire by Steven Redhead

Are you living the life that you always imagined, the life that you really desire? Can you realize your dreams and desires, or are they gradually slipping away from you?

You are the architect of your own life; so use your willpower to make those choices that will control your destiny, create your life path, your fortune. Start to live by taking back control of your life now.

‘The Laws of Attraction taught how to attract what you want. ‘The Laws of Creation’ shows you what the greatest inventors throughout history knew and practiced, they created. You are the creator of your own perceived reality, so don’t be a creation of circumstances, take full control of your destiny.

The rule is simple, take good care of the future or fear it; for if you don’t plan the present and the future to achieve your life desires, your bliss, then fate will ensure anything can and will happen. Fate has a terrible habit of filling in gaps in reality with anything that may come along, life then becomes an unstable game of chance, perhaps taking you far from the original intended life path. Decide then plan for what you want from life, then work towards putting energy into achieving these life goals, then more than likely what you aim for will become yours, what you most desire and need will become your reality.

Life has the meaning that you give it, through capturing then using the Power of Creation to create a life really worth living.

Creating Your Reality: Start Living By Taking Back
Control Of Your Life by Steven Redhead

Life is the most wondrous journey, yet many have lost their way by not managing their life well. Creating Your Reality offers directions on how to return to your true life path, to finding your bliss, living a life that you truly deserve. Create a life of joy, contentment, happiness, peace, wealth, health; living your dream, creating the things you desires; gaining the knowledge of what life is really about. The book gives insight into the secrets of The Laws of Attraction; that you are indeed the architect of your own life; that by harness the power of creation within you can make the life that you truly desire. Creating Your Reality is a handy reference, intended to be a guide through life, through the journey of discovery to find out your true self.

Obtain ideas that will enable you to gain insight into how to deal with what may arise; then progress to start living the reality you truly desire and deserve; live life as it was originally intended to be. This is what life is really all about, giving your own meaning to life so that you can live a life of contented bliss. Make the changes to ensure your life is what you desire and how only you intend it to be. Learn to live and create your own reality rather than living that of others.

“Life was never meant to be difficult, it was meant to be wondrous adventure, we trade that ideal for whatever we have because of our complacency, or whenever we accept whatever comes our way,” shares the author. “We can set ourselves free by removing or eliminating anything that is undesirable in our life, no matter what or how high the cost”.

Backed with personal insights and well-research studies, Creating Your Reality will inspire and motivate readers as it offers thoughts to overcome life’s issues, allowing one to live the life imagined by creating what is needed to live the life that is truly deserved.

Author Mark Isaacs (Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA)

Hurrah! Huzzah! And Hip Hip Hooray! After many years in journalism, PR and education, I finally found my passion in short-story writing.

I’ve had a number of shorts published in literary magazines and recently Lampglow Books published one of my faves, “The Greatest Blessings,” as a children’s chapter book, replete with 22 sumptuous illustrations.

That’s a victory in itself. But what would be better is if the tale of the fabulous Lords Fame, Fortune and Power and the forsaken runaway named Boy they command to decide which one of their namesake favours is the greatest blessing sells a few copies!

************************

The Greatest Blessings by Mark Isaacs

Discover the critically acclaimed, classically written children’s chapter book that has kids everywhere asking …

Fame, Fortune or Power: Which would you choose if you could have only one?

The Greatest Blessings is a classically written children’s chapter book that, as one reviewer put it, “makes one think that a bard wrote it to be told over a glass of (ginger) ale in a medieval tavern.” Lauded by the prestigious Midwestern Book Review as “unforgettable” and the popular Reading Frenzy book review as “the book that should be next on your child’s reading list,” The Greatest Blessings is a nominee for the American Library Association’s 2015 notable children’s book list.

Synopsis: A forsaken runaway named Boy has to decide which one of the namesake blessings of the fabulous Lords Fame, Fortune and Power is the greatest.

Summary: Lords and brothers Fame, Fortune and Power decide how well all people will fare in life in the namesake realms of human desire they control. When they deem a woeful babe abandoned in a barn unworthy of any of their favours, the child grows up the lackey of a cruel farmer and his tormenting spoiled children. When he is old enough Boy, for that is the name used for him, runs away with the only friends he has ever known–the equally abused and unnamed Sheep, Cow and Horse–to seek a better life.

Years later, a quarrel among Fame, Fortune and Power over whose blessing is the greatest sends them, and their court jester Nobody, on a quest to find an unsullied party to settle their dispute. Boy seems the perfect candidate, but his unusual views on what is valuable in life incite the lords and bring him to the brink of doom. Will he live? What happens to the lords? And is Boy right or does one of the lords’ blessings outshine the others? The future of mankind depends on the answer.

Characters

Boy: Abandoned by his mother as a newborn and shunned by Lords Fame, Fortune and Power, Boy grows up the lackey of a cruel farmer and eventually runs away with his only friends, his faithful companions Sheep, Cow and Horse.

Fame: Conferrer of the blessing of renown to children, the dashing Fame believes that his gift is the name of the game.

Fortune: Conferrer of the blessing of wealth to children, the extravagant Fortune believes that his gift is all you need to succeed.

Power: Conferrer of the blessing of might to children, the brawny Power believes that his gift is the be-all end-all.

Nobody: Court jester to Fame, Fortune and Power, when it comes to saying the right thing at the wrong time, Nobody does it better.

Sheep, Cow and Horse: Scraggly, frail and puny respectively, Sheep, Cow and Horse are nonetheless priceless to Boy.

Settings & Locations

The Greatest Blessings takes place during an Arthurian time in a mythical land from which the glorious lords Fame, Fortune and Power decide the destinies of all people according to their fancies.

Magnificent palace of Fame, Fortune and Power

Dark forest where a pack of ravenous wolves stand ready to pounce

Ramshackle stable and prosperous farm of a rich but cruel landsman

Treacherous river that carries Boy, Sheep, Cow and Horse away

Paltry patch of land that Boy, Sheep, Cow and Horse call home

Genre: Children’s Books, Fairy Tales, Folk Tales & Myths, Arthurian, Classics
