Excerpt- A Tale of Two Freddies

A Tale of Two Freddies: An Arnie & Zellie Cozy Mystery Arnie & Zellie Cozy Mystery Series) book 2

The corpse barely missed my head. No flying cadavers, just a new case falling into the lives of our intrepid unlicensed detectives. While in dogged pursuit of a killer, Arnie and Zellie navigate the tricky waters of a full-blown romance. Solvers of a single case, they need all of that experience and more to find the murderer. How the heck did the killer get the dead guy up there? And what’s the deal with two men having almost the same name? Did one of them kill the other? Did someone else?

Along the way, Arnie and Zellie encounter a real estate company with a dark side and its own enforcer, a building manager with a chip on her shoulder, and a cleaning company owner with a grudge. Not to mention a massage therapist doubling as a realtor, and a florist who may or may not have witnessed a murder. And how does the gruff but kind deli owner fit into it all?

Is it worth risking their lives to find out?

Read an Excerpt-

And oh, what a face. She was only about sixty, but her visage cried out octogenarian, at least. Lots of lines, whether from age, weather or worry, who could tell? Maybe all three. A kind of elliptical skull, but not the way you’d think. Turned on its side so that her giant almost frog-like cheeks gave the impression of a head greater in width than height. Her stringy, poorly dyed brown hair hung down in bangs, which almost obscured her forehead, completing the sideways oval.

 

Retired government attorney Eric Small began writing a cozy mystery series featuring the investigations and adventures of Arnie and Zellie in their fledgling detective agency, set in the environs of Middletown, New Jersey.

Brazen Gambit was the first in the series, and A Tale of Two Freddies continues from where that left off. Eric grew up in Middletown, and now lives in Florida with his wife, to whom he’s been married for over thirty years.
