RED’S WHITE F-150 BLUES, by Scott Montgomery
When you have this many high quality authors spinning tales, you are in for a great time. Each story was unique, and I didn't find a bad one in the bunch. On the contrary, I liked them all. Reading enjoyment doesn't get better than that in a single book! Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.
— Billy Kring, author of the Hunter Kincaid Mystery Series
This is a light-hearted (and occasionally black-hearted) collection of short stories built around a theme. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Start at the beginning, with Waller’s evocative piece, "A Fine Set of Wheels." From there, take your choice--historical, humorous, dark and light. Good reading for mystery fans.
— Elizabeth Buhmann, author of Lay Death at Her Door
A bevy of Austin writers with crime-laden imaginations strut their stuff in a series of varied and delightful stories. A great chance to discover new talents in mystery-writing!
