Saturday Night Special: A Mystery Short Story

Renee Pawlish

From the author of the Reed Ferguson mystery series!

Murdered prostitutes.
An ex-boyfriend.
Prank phone calls.
An astute Denver police detective with a wicked sense of humor.
It all adds up to another great Sarah Spillman mystery short story!

A serial killer is targeting prostitutes, and he's fond of Denver detective Sarah Spillman...why else would he be calling her and leaving her notes at the scene of his crimes? Now Sarah has to pull out all the stops to halt his killing spree, and keep from being his next victim.

 

Praise for THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES, the first in the Reed Ferguson mystery series:

Readers' Favorite Finalist in Mystery

A wannabe private eye with a love of film noir and detective fiction.
A rich, attractive femme fatale.
A missing husband.
A rollicking ride to a dark and daring ending.

Reed Ferguson’s first case is a daring adventure, complete with a dose of film noir, and a lot of humor. With a great supporting cast of the Goofball Brothers, Reed’s not too bright neighbors, and Cal, Reed’s computer geek friend, This Doesn’t Happen In The Movies is detective noir at its best. Follow Reed as he solves crime akin to his cinematic hero, Humphrey Bogart.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

Kirkus Reviews:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.

Readers' Favorite:
This is one witty, hilarious detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.

5 Star Review
There is little doubt that Renée Pawlish is a promising new voice to the comic murder/mystery genre. Quite noticeable...is Pawlish's adept development of the plot coupled with her ability to contrive clear, concise and playful prose with almost perfect pacing.
