The Ghost in Roomette Four
A California Zephyr Mystery
Janet Dawson
ISBN 978-1-56474-598-9
240 pages, trade paperback original, $15.95
Publication date: April 7, 2018


It’s almost midnight on the sleek streamliner known as the California Zephyr. Heading for her quarters, Zephyrette Jill McLeod walks through the Silver Gorge, a Pullman car, and sees something she can’t explain. Is the shimmering light a ghost? Jill doubts evidence of her own eyes, but soon learns that others have seen the phenomenon. Whatever is haunting roomette four on the Silver Gorge is connected to an incident two months earlier, when Jill found the body of a young man in that very roomette. At the time, the verdict on the man’s death was natural causes. Now it looks like the unquiet spirit is pointing to murder.

Clearly, someone wishes them harm. But who? And why? As they try to answer those questions, their unknown nemesis uses the internet to offer a reward for their capture, turning the pursuit into a crazy real-world video game with an infinite number of players and no rules.

The Gods Help Those
A Seventh Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger
Albert A. Bell, Jr.
ISBN 978-1-56474-600-9
240 pages, trade paperback original, $15.95
Publication date: September 7, 2018


Pliny had hoped to improve relations with his mother-in-law by investing in a warehouse on the Tiber with her. Now the building has collapsed due to heavy rains. Pliny finds several dead people, including a man with an equestrian stripe on his tunic. He wasn’t killed by the collapse of the building, though, but by a knife wound in his back. Two things about the man puzzle Pliny: he is circumcised and his mouth has been sewn shut with something in it.
