“Dick Wybrow has crafted a totally original and amazing supernatural thriller. Edgy and fast-paced, The InBetween is a hell of an idea – and will have you seeing ghosts. What a great read!”
— Brad Meltzer, The Escape Artist

Exposing them will free dozens of ghosts but will also clear Painter, leaving no one to help the souls trapped in The InBetween.

When alive, he was never really good at much. Dead? He's a hell of a PI.

Will Painter risk everything to save those he's sworn to help?

$FREE on 5/25/2019 – Boulevard Dreams by E Ryan Janz

In this cleverly and darkly funny noir set in the smoky world of 1958 San Francisco, a down and out private detective, Joe Nails, experiences a series of surrealistic yet disturbing dreams, in which his once best friend from high school days, Mark Tamlyn, pleads for his help, before turning a gun to his head and firing.
To ease the lingering doubts regarding his friend's well-being, Joe sets out to locate him, only to learn Mark disappeared a month before the dreams began. As his investigation deepens, Nails initially uncovers a conflicting portrait of Tamlyn by an amazing mixture of unforgettable characters who knew him best: from those intimating his disappearance is customary, to those suggesting he is on the lamb from mobsters, and to those who insist he is dead.
But Joe yearns to discover the truth, and thus becomes embroiled in an encircling world of murder, deception, passion, and mystery, and as he races down a narrowing road with no off-ramps toward the shocking reality of his friend’s fate and the final desperation of his own, Joe Nails stares into the dreadful face of the unimaginable.

$FREE on 2/14/2019 – Misplaced Loyalty by Marcia Turner

When it seems that all is lost, and you have no hope, you need someone to look after your best interests – be careful – Misplaced Loyalty can prove fatal.

Detective Patsy Hodge has left her old life behind to start a new job with Bristol CID. She attends a suspicious death with her new boss: straight talking, no nonsense, Detective Inspector John Meredith. Within days the body count begins to rise, as victims, old and new, are discovered to have died by lethal injection. Assisted suicide or euthanasia? Meredith calls it murder.

There is an attraction between the two detectives, who circle each other, but both Meredith and Hodge are carrying an enormous amount of emotional baggage, and soon their pasts threaten to overwhelm their future.

As the investigation gathers pace, tension mounts within the team, and someone takes an unhealthy interest in Patsy, threatening her life, and she no longer knows who to trust.

$FREE on 9/28/2018 – Delayed Justice by Dennis Carstens

FRAUD LEADS TO MURDER… AND THIS TIME, IT’S PERSONAL.
Celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella knows the importance of personal connections in his line of work. In Dennis Carstens’ sixth Marc Kadella legal thriller, his old buddy Tony Carvelli, a private investigator, asks him to take on a drug case for his well-off friend’s delinquent kid and he agrees—even though he’s had it with drug cases. Marc enlists the help of PI Maddy Rivers, his longtime best friend and confidante, to dig up dirt on two cops suspected of planting evidence on the bust. With Carvelli’s connections (the guy knows everybody), Marc is able to infiltrate the St. Paul police force and expose gross incompetence. But when it comes to prodding Maddy about her new beau, Marc’s got bupkis.

Maddy has her reservations about her new relationship with Rob Judd. Sure, he’s a handsome and brilliant investment analyst in a wildly successful securities management firm. But he’s constantly distracted. It seems something about the firm’s not quite right—or so he finally lets on to Maddy. Its returns are consistently solid, maybe a little too solid—or so suspects Patrick McGarry, one of Rob’s co-workers. After voicing his suspicions to Rob, Patrick heads up north for a weekend hiking trip—and winds up dead. It’s only a matter of days before Rob is next. And Maddy’s found unconscious at the gruesome scene of the crime, clutching the murder weapon.

Convinced Maddy was framed, Marc decides to take on the case in spite of his close connections to the client. He finds he must delve deep into the complex money laundering schemes of Rob Judd’s employer—and its connections to a ruthless Mexican drug cartel and an expert hitman who’s fallen off the radar—to save Maddy from false imprisonment. Or worse.
