Five short stories:

Seven for Suicide: Detective Sarah Spillman was called out for an apparent suicide. When she saw the party invitation, she knew it wasn't your run-of-the-mill suicide. Seven people came to the party, but they were only supposed to act out their suicide, not actually do it. But was it suicide or did someone use the opportunity to commit murder?

Elvis and the Sports Card Cheat: Reed Ferguson, owner the Reed Ferguson Detective Agency, was sitting at his desk when in walked Elvis,

When I finished reading this book, I thought, this collection of mystery tales can be easily turned into a tv show. Sarah Spillman is a detective. She has the leading role in three out of five stories. Wherever she goes, crime is after her. New cases are always there, even when she goes on vacation. Reed Ferguson is a private investigator who has a case of a stolen valuable baseball card. Kay has a colleague who always finds a way to disrespect her. Three great characters, five great stories.

Also you will find a Reed Ferguson story where his detective skills lead him this time to catch a thief.
The stories are written well and the mystery is maintained. Sometimes the ending is clear, while in other stor
