I am offering the reader two for one murder mysteries. In the first novel, a twenty plus year New York City homicide lieutenant retires to the coast of Oregon. All set in his drafty beach cottage, his short retirement is halted by a lovely detective from the local Sheriffs Department of Lincoln County. She asks for his help solving a rather brutal murder and violation of a young woman confined to a wheel chair. Its determined the murder was committed by more than one person. Norm Payne, with reservations, agrees to help. He cuts a deal with the local sheriff and embarks on the trail of the local killers. Along the way the killers ambush Norm without much success. Other suspects are friends of the victim who has a taste for green bud. Add a touch of romance and you have a thrilling read to the end.The second novel is number six in the Stacy Foreham series. While on a short vacation visiting her father in Bandon, Oregon, a phone call informs the former Chief of Police Ray Foreham, that his best friend has been brutally murdered in his myrtlewood factory. The wife of the victim is in a mental coma unable to speak. Stacy and her teams investigation leads to most all of the prime suspects dropping off the suspect list leaving the detectives wanting. Finally buried secrets are discovered and after the comatose wife is murdered, that homicide presents a baffling who done it. Read to find out who killed two of the most respected citizens of the county. Was it the two off spring who were cut out of the will, or was it a lifelong feud with the local competitor in the myrtlewood business who murdered them?
