The second Higgins & Hawke Mystery, Death on the Tower, will be released on April 23rd. That's less than two weeks away - wow!
Here’s a teaser from Chapter #1 of Death on the Tower.
>>> From the back seat of the taxi, Samantha Hawke leaned close to the driver’s ear. “Mister, can’t you make this thing go any faster?”
“Goin’ as fast I can, lady.”
Frustration built up in her chest, and to her dismay she felt sweat build up under the arms of her two-piece, summer dress suit. She removed her straw hat and fanned herself, furious that, not only was she burning up in this slow-moving oven on wheels, but that Johnny Milwaukee would arrive at the scene of the crime before she did. And she’d gotten the tip first!
The nerve of that man, refusing to let her ride along with him in his fancy roadster. He’d get the lead story again. How was she going to prove to her boss she was as good a reporter as the guys if she had to depend on transit and they drove their own cars?
“Finally!” she muttered under her breath as the taxi approached the west side of the Custom House on India Street. She pushed damp locks of honey-blond hair off her face and replaced her hat. She paid the cabbie, then stepped out onto the street with her messenger bag and Kodak box camera strapped over her shoulder. <<<

He's funny, he's clever... but he lacks hygiene!
You may recall that I run a boutique publishing company called La Plume Press. This is the first time I've taken on a new author and it has been a real adventure. If you have young readers in your life, Stanley the Walrus will be the perfect addition to your favorite picture books.
