Two Shots

by Joe Albert

When state game warden Tony Leach responds to an emergency call about a hunter who has been shot and killed at a deer camp in the woods of northern Minnesota, there’s no way he can be prepared for the twisted web into which he’s been thrust.

Five years removed from a stint with the Minneapolis Police Department, Tony Leach is a game warden for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Content to spend his days in the woods and on the water enforcing fishing and hunting laws, he thought he’d left violent crime behind when he left the city. But a single call from dispatch two days before the deer-hunting season opens changes that.

Now, he’s pushed into working a case he really shouldn’t be involved with, and digging for the truth in the death of a noted political operative that some high-powered people would prefer remain buried in the northern Minnesota woods. As Leach pursues those responsible, he finds people and things aren’t exactly what they seem. And as the investigation goes on and the web unravels, it becomes increasingly clear the only way for it to end is with a killer’s – or his – demise.

Her Father’s Last Request

by C. P. Stringham

She walked away from her family’s world until…Her Father’s Last Request.

Forty year-old Charlotte Hawthorne wasn’t your typical silver spoon heiress. While growing up the daughter of a prominent Connecticut family, she decided the trappings of the rich and famous lifestyle weren’t for her. Charlotte’s independent nature and liberal views were all too often an area of contention with her parents, Harrison and Regina Hawthorne. Family gatherings brought on raised tempers and ended in heated arguments. Attempts to remind their defiant daughter of her family obligations only proved to push Charlotte further away from them.

Unlike her publicity-loving family, who were always ready for the perfect photo op or interview to promote their latest corporate victories or charitable good deeds, the introverted Charlotte avoided the public eye at all costs. She was happy with her simple life, working for a non-profit organization, and making a comfortable home for herself in her Upper Eastside Manhattan apartment. She’d even found a way to work around her marital status to start a family. And then, one morning, everything changed.

While dealing with her own personal heartache, Charlotte suddenly finds herself immersed in the middle of an unprecedented scandal that leaves the entire Hawthorne family reeling and scrambling for containment. As the self-imposed outsider, Charlotte is entirely blind-sided as family secrets are revealed by the media to the all too eager public. The most shocking element comes about through her father’s last request.
