As the hunt turns dangerous, Cassie and Walter will need grit along with their field skills to survive this case. For they are up against more than pure human malice.

From the moment she enters the world of her new boarding school, Blight’s Academy, teenage sleuth, Poppy Farrell, finds danger.

There is a dark secret at the heart of Blight’s Academy: disappearances, deaths, and conspiracies pervade the wooded grounds, flicker in the stained glass windows, tinkle like a music box lullaby through the turreted halls.

“… I pegged this book totally wrong. The lovable characters and small-town life lulled me into thinking I’d wrapped this mystery up pretty soon into reading, but the fun was actually just getting started. Not only did the crimes–old and new–intensify, but the deaths and suspects were piling up more quickly than I could make my next guess. I was pretty sure I’d picked out the love plot from the get-go, as well, but found myself surprised again by the time I’d turned… Continue reading

Burned out and bitter after a string of disappointments, Nicola Strozyk takes a short-term gig assisting Laurie Sparks, the design world’s reigning enfant terrible. Barely in his twenties, Laurie has built himself an empire that encompasses a chic Manhattan boutique and a role on an obnoxious reality series. Part worldly sophisticate and part cheerful scatterbrain, Laurie is beautiful and extravagant; at nearly twice his age, Nicola is jaded and resolutely unglamorous. As Laurie’s burgeoning fame threatens to overwhelm him, Nicola finds herself struggling to keep him on solid ground. When Laurie becomes obsessed with tracking down the designer of a mysterious coat, he drags Nicola along on a champagne-fueled quest that takes them from the New York catwalks to glittery Hollywood parties and swanky suites in Paris hotels. What begins as a lark takes an ominous turn when they uncover a decades-old mystery involving the murders of two young models. Along the way, the odd-couple camaraderie between Nicola and Laurie evolves into a fierce bond, which is put to the test when she must protect him from a pair of deadly threats: a mercurial fellow designer hell-bent on burying a dark secret, and an obsessive killer who has fixed his… Continue reading

See what reviewers are saying:

“Rick Polad’s book,Change of Address, is in the best tradition of Robert Parker. The book is about characters, and it has plenty of them to keep you on the edge of your seat wondering how Chicago private eye, Spenser Manning, will carry the day. Throughout the book, Polad’s well-crafted plot is set against the background of Manning’s personal life – virtues, vices, dilemmas – so that we see the man in greater context with his adversaries and own personal demons … Polad’s protagonists and antagonists are equally entertaining as is the entire book and I highly recommend it and hope that Rick Polad has in mind to continue this Spenser Manning series. A terrific start to a promising writer.” By D.J. Terras, Amazon

“I very much enjoyed reading Change of Address, and especially liked Spencer Manning, the detective. The story kept me wanting to read more and the clues kept me guessing right until the end. Being from Chicago, I enjoyed the historical references to my beloved home town. This story provided a pleasing blend of mystery,… Continue reading

Was $5.99  – $2.99- Oct 23-Nov 13, 2014

A dangerous woman, a guilty conscience, and a mariachi band in jeopardy add up to MARIACHI MURDER!

When the death of a fellow musician threatens his own band, Andy Veracruz must risk everything to find the killer. The more Andy learns, the more trouble he gets himself into. He’s a sleuth by accident. He would much rather spend afternoons working on new songs. Instead the only way he can restore equilibrium is by taking walks at three a.m., breaking and entering, impersonating his brother, and lying to everyone, including himself. 

Mariachi Murder is a great way to peek into the world and culture of mariachi music and the players who entertain customers night after night in a popular restaurant. Usually the biggest task is to decide what song to play next — and then the first murder occurs. Andy Veracruz, leader of the mariachi band, is a sympathetic hero with plenty of foibles of his own, who tries to figure out what is going on. There is a colorful cast of supporting characters from the mariachi band, the restaurant, and the neighborhood. The mystery deepens with each new development. I didn’t want to put this book down. Next time you go to a restaurant and request a tune from the mariachi band, you just might wonder what goes on behind the scenes.– AZ Roger

Along with a compelling story, mystery fans love learning about worlds… Continue reading
