Three Mapleton Mystery Novellas, a blend of police procedurals and cozy mysteries.
Life is a balancing act. When you're a cop, the choices can be deadly.
Ed Solomon, long-time police officer in the small town of Mapleton, Colorado, has been ribbed for thinking there's a ring of assassins out killing deadbeat dads. He's convinced these killers exist and they're doing their dirty work from behind an innocuous-looking travel blog. Proving the ring exists has been a sideline investigation for him, but it's shoved further onto the back burner when Ed is forced to assume the duties of Chief.
If you're with a cop, there's no escaping mystery and crime, even on a Caribbean cruise.
Angie Mead thinks time away from Gordon's "Cop Stuff" is what he needs to distract him from being suspended as Mapleton's Chief of Police and get over killing a man. A Caribbean cruise, where Gordon has no jurisdiction, seems the perfect solution-and Angie is looking forward to some fun in the sun.
Communication mishaps and Gordon's apparent lack of interest in their getaway create second thoughts for Angie. That is, until a series of petty thefts give Gordon a new bone to chew on.
Will a string of mysterious trespassing incidents give Rookie Officer Ed Solomon his chance at being a big-time detective?
In most places, people breaking into garden and storage sheds might not be a big deal, but in the small town of Mapleton, Colorado, it's a veritable crime wave, at least according to Chief Dixon. Kids playing pranks? Or something more serious? Could these trespassers have something to do with a much bigger, big-city crime? What starts out as a perfunctory investigation soon escalates. Will Dixon, Arch Hepler, and new rookie Solomon discover the truth before Mapleton sees its first homicide in decades?
