Absolutely Dead

By Michael Walker

It’s the rocky coast of Maine and there’s a Nor’easter blowing like a stink outside. The causeway’s flooded and (of course) the local sheriff is stranded on the mainland. Naturally, on a turbulent night like this, the phones are down and who would ever expect cell phones to work in a place like this? Does it sound like a good night for a roaring fire and a dinner party with a lot of laughs from a boisterous, tipsy actress? Does it sound like a good night for a murder – or two? People are dying and the party really isn’t funny anymore.


By Max Allan Collins

Another opening – another Broadway hit, only the celebrity star is kidnapped and Mike Hammer is brought in to solve the kidnapping – is it the producer, is it her deceased husband’s mob connected family, is it her stalker fan, is it the understudy – there’s plenty here for Mike Hammer and his trusted secretary, as well as the audience, to wade through, with twists and turns and still a surprise at the end!


Written by Donald Drake

"Lost At Sea" occurs when an aging playwright takes his 3 grown children along with his secretary/companion on a cruise. Someone disappears and the mystery begins! What happened? An accident- a murder- a plot? Come aboard the cruise ship and see for yourself!
