"If we win we eats you whole?" "Fair enough."

   Coming October 8th

 Detective Isidore Thaddeus Reichmann doesn't want friends but Lisbeth has given him no choice. She stepped into his life, promising never to leave his side and slowly, Isidore accepts her thrust of friendship. Together they solve mysteries, rather, he solves them and she gets into trouble. They are inseparable and secretly Isidore enjoys his constant companion. However, a time is coming when promises will be broken and a friendship tested - and the end result will forever change Isidore's life. 

 The reason for this short story is to help in clearing up some of the mystery surrounding Isidore's past. Everything else about Isidore is explained in the books, but this story he tells no one. (At least, not in the books.) However, it is important for the reader to know it, to understand better what is going on.
 Originally I was going to release the story before the last book. However, while editing I realized most of Isidore's story is kept in mystery and throwing one more on top might add confusion. Therefore, I consulted my expert in matters like this, my artist Clair, and we weighed the pros and cons. 
Part of me wanted to keep the story hidden until the end - for drama's sake, but we finally decided it the impact of the story might have more effect if the story were released before book one. Therefore, to understand some things going on in book one, this story is important. If, however, you wish to wait till the end...don't read it yet. But, you've been warned. It might just make things more confusing. 



  1. Oh my word, I can't wait!
    My somewhat easily confused self thanks you for releasing earlier to help with the confusion factor! ;-)

  2. I'm going to be out of town with awful internet access on the eighth, but I'll be sure to check this out when I get home. I think it's a cool idea to release the short story! Looking forward to reading it...

  3. this book sounds good, Jack! Can't wait to read it. I also am so excited about The Hobbit. EEK!
    God bless

  4. It's hard to decide on things like that! I do like companion stories for novels! :)

  5. I can't wait to read this!

  6. Wow. Sounds pretty epic. I like epic. Epic is good! :)

    'Elementary'...hmmm. Yes, I do love a good crime show and I *do* usually like people with British accents. So maybe I could enjoy the show. (But why one earth do they have to call him Sherlock? And why, oh WHY, is Watson a girl?)
    Thanks for the feedback on that.;)

    Oh, and I think Martin Freeman may be the cutest hobbit ever! (Though Billy Boyd is pretty smashing as a hobbit too. )
