I’m happy to announce the release of a new collection of short crime stories called CRESTFALLEN.  The collection features San Francisco private investigator, Peter Crestfallen.   In fine PI style, he has a penchant for attracting problem clients. He’s the kind of gumshoe who’ll always give a hundred percent, even if it’s for a ten percent return.  The stories in this collection are:

In CRESTFALLEN’s V.I.P., Crestfallen has to track down a stolen teddy bear for a senior citizen and he’ll have to go up against the White House to retrieve it.

In CRESTFALLEN’s GETAWAY, Crestfallen has to smuggle a mob accountant out of San Francisco.

In CRESTFALLEN’s KINK, Crestfallen is hired to find out what a housewife does in her off hours and is drawn into a dark world of alternative lifestyles.

In CRESTFALLEN’s WIDOW, Jane Staam hires Crestfallen to prove she didn’t kill her terminally ill, millionaire husband.

The Crestfallen stories appeared in a number of anthologies over the years but he was a character I put on ice to work on other projects.  However I’m considering resurrecting him, as during my recent house move I discovered a manuscript for a novel I’d been writing.  It was inspired by a local incident in the 50’s and I thought would make for a nice back story.  The book needs work.  So I’m interested in what you think of Crestfallen and whether you’d like to hear more from this guy.  Enjoy!
