Book Pimping

PATIENT 13

Ed Sutter

When an experimental serum is given to an elderly alcoholic dubbed Patient 13, the old man begins to become physically younger. Before comprehensive testing can be done, however, the old man escapes the lab facility and disappears. Lucky O’Donnel finds Thirteen wandering in a local park and takes him in. Hypnotic regression reveals that Thirteen has a whole array of memories, some of them of ancient civilizations in Egypt, South America, and Europe.

Meanwhile, a ruthless international corporation, the parent of the local inventors of the serum, sends agents to retrieve the errant Patient Thirteen with the potential prize of a formula that could induce physical youth in its users. The Memphis Corporation isn’t too concerned if Thirteen is returned to them alive or dead.

Death by Misfortune
A.M. Riley

After a glamorous studio party, "Psychic to the Stars" Sylvie Black is found murdered in her fortune telling booth, a blood soaked tarot reading spread out before her. Shortly afterwards, the high-profile director who was about to produce Ms. Black's 'tell-all' Hollywood screenplay, is found murdered as well.

Closeted Homicide detective, Bill Turner, and his partner, Kate Crandall, find themselves sorting through a cast of likely suspects, who all seem to have secrets worth killing for. They soon run up against the studio rumor mill, and Jeremy Reilly, a young studio AD determined to protect their prime suspect.
