BIAS CUT won a silver medal in the Mystery category at the 2013 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) and was a 2012 semi-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA).

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

A Spencer Manning Mystery

Was $4.9999cents Oct 23, 2014

She’s only five… and her mother was killed. Tracking down the girl’s unknown father in 1970s Chicago involves new private investigator Spencer Manning in murder and drugs. His first case leads him to a Chicagoland racetrack and the mayor’s house where things are not all as they appear.

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

After he died, Jamie just wasn’t himself. While pursuing gangbangers, Jamie Giles’ squad car veered off the road, killing him. But then something odd happened. He came back to life. Now he has a relationship problem—with a sinister presence that is inhabiting his body.

“Deeper and Deeper starts with a “crime story feel” and quickly turns into a book that is filled with interesting, well-thought out characters and historical backgrounds that are intriguing. The main character, Jamie, is one of the more dynamic and quirky personas one will find in a novel. Mr. Lindberg uses a very descriptive style that allows the reader to create the scenes in one’s mind – with a wide variety of settings. As a reader it’s a “what could be next” kind of flow to the book. I would heartily recommend this fascinating book.” By Carol Dell, Amazon

$2.99 Music! Murder! in “Mariachi Murder” by DR Ransdell

mariachi_murder_coverMariachi Murder by DR Ransdell

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

Daisy Dunlop thinks “heir hunting” is a perfect career. Too bad she has to work with her husband’s best mate, Irish PI Solomon Liffey. They’ve barely spoken since he took her husband Paul’s request to keep her safe far too literally and handcuffed her to the kitchen sink.

Solomon has no interest in babysitting a new partner, especially this one. The woman’s a bleedin’ liability. She has no concept of danger and could flirt for England at the next Olympics. As if that isn’t bad enough, she has a habit of sticking her nose where it’s not wanted, including into Solomon’s very private life.

Determined to keep Daisy safely out of his way, Solomon sets her the task of finding a missing lord. Her investigations land her in the middle of his case. Bullets fly, bombs explode, and the body count rises. When Solomon goes missing, the tables are turned. Now it’s his life that is in Daisy’s hands, and she has two missing men to find before it’s too late.
