Bloodfire

by John Lutz

When a nervous husband asks him to track down his heroin addict wife, Fred Carver learns that not every client can be trustedWhen he meets Bob Ghostly, it's hardly the first time that Fred Carver has been asked to find a missing spouse. But Ghostly's tale about a beautiful woman who fled for no apparent reason doesn't quite convince Carver, who presses for more detail. Finally Ghostly admits it. His wife was beautiful, intelligent, and kind, but she was also a heroin addict. She fled their Florida home with half their savings--nearly $10,000--and he's afraid she's going to put it straight into her veins. Carver goes looking for the troubled young bride, but when she shows up on her own--terrified and looking for protection--a routine case becomes one that could prove lethal for the well-meaning PI. This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.

Bonegrinder

by John Lutz

A bloodthirsty lake monster menaces a small town in the Ozarks When the men find him, the boy's legs look like they were run through a wood-chipper. He's bleeding heavily and near death, but he still has strength to tell them of the monster that attacked him: a dark, massive creature that emerged from the bottom of the lake. The child dies before he can say more. Sheriff Billy Wintone has seen too much superstition, drunkenness, and rage in this small Ozarks town to believe the delirious boy's tale of a monster lurking under the lake's dark waters. Like it or not, however, Wintone must scour the woods for the man or beast who killed the child before the start of fishing season. When another body is found chewed to pieces, the Sheriff begins to wonder what evil lies at the bottom of Big Water Lake.

He tells a paranoid story about one of his neighbors on the sunny Florida Key where he makes his home--a wealthy man whom he suspects of using his yacht to run drugs. A young boy recently washed up on the beach, Tiller says, and he's certain it was murder. Carver is uninterested until he learns that the old man's grandson died a few years earlier: another casualty of cocaine addiction. It's only been three years since Carver's own son was murdered, and he's too sentimental to turn down the case. When Tiller turns up dead himself, a victim of a suspicious hit-and-run, a little smuggled cocaine becomes the least of Carver's troubles.
