 Ethel Bradley thinks someone is trying to kill her, but doesn’t
know who or why. She enlists the help of her childhood friend,
Lady Elsmere, but Lady Elsmere has troubles of her own in
the form of a ne’er-do-well English nephew who’s trying to steal
her estate. Both women turn to Josiah Reynolds, who has just
returned from New York.
Josiah calls Detective Goetz who recommends a shamus named
Walter Neff. Walter and Josiah scour the Bluegrass for answers
that turn out to be deadly. To make matters worse for Josiah,
Fred O’nan is a free man and gunning for her.
Josiah, full of sass and vinegar, meets these challenges head on
with the support of her friends, Franklin and Matt. Will Josiah be
thwarted this time?
Kentucky can be a cruel mistress to those wanting
justice and exacts a high price for it. Sometimes the “dark and
bloody ground” demands double indemnity.
This is something Josiah knows very well. Very well indeed.

Murder Under A Blue Moon

Mona Moon is not your typical young lady. She is a cartographer by trade, explorer by nature, and adventurer by heart.

But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is broke. It’s during the Depression, and her application has just been turned down to join an expedition to the Amazon.

What’s she to do? Perhaps get a job as a department store salesgirl. Anything to tide her over until the next assignment.

There’s a knock on the door. Who could this be in the middle of the night?

Holding a revolver, Mona reluctantly opens her door to a man wearing a Homburg hat and holding a briefcase.

“I bring glad tidings. Your Uncle Manfred Moon has died and left you as his heir to the Moon fortune. You are now one of the richest women in the country!” he says.

Mona’s response is to point her revolver in his face. If the stranger is telling the truth, she will apologize. If he is a fraud, she will shoot him.

That’s how Mona does things in 1933.

 

           Murder Under A Blood Moon

Mona is eating breakfast with Jetta Dressler, her personal secretary, and Chloe, her poodle, when she receives a telegram from her friend, Lady Alice Morrell, begging her to come to England. It seems Lady Alice is receiving death threats!

Alarmed that her dear friend needs help, Mona gathers her pistol, her steamer trunks, and Violet, her maid, to travel to Merry Old England. Once there, Mona encounters a nemesis she hasn’t seen for a very long time. She was lucky once to survive. Will she be as lucky now?

Armed with her pistol, courage, and a bag of tricks, Mona is determined to save Lady Alice from harm, even if it means she might die trying.

That’s how Mona does things in 1933.

 

Murder Under A Bad Moon

Mona has inherited a fortune from her uncle and is one of the richest women during the Depression. But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is being accused of murdering her neighbor by a corrupt sheriff. Mona has made enemies in the Bluegrass, and the sheriff’s been told to make life difficult for her.

Why? Because Mona pays good wages to her employees and offers free health care. She even let her miners unionize. Mona is considered a radical and dangerous to some of the other horse owners. They want to be shed of Mona’s extreme views.

            It’s too bad someone murdered Judge Landis Garrett, but if the evidence swings around Mona’s way––all the better if it sticks many of the locals think.

Mona’s response is to tell the sheriff and his cronies to go to hell. You want a fight? Well, bring it on!

That’s how Mona does things in 1933.
