A woman with 40's noir looks, an overbearing boyfriend, an alligator, a Hi-Def television, and an injured dog found in Central Park . . . what do these five have in common? Murder . . .

Five previously published short stories make their debut in this mystery anthology.

"Death Has Pouty Red Lips" - Tupelo Turner finds himself led to the extreme by a femme fatale.

"Death Sweet Death" - When Laurel's quiet small town existence becomes strangled by honeysuckle and an overbearing boyfriend, she is forced to take action.

"The Gift That Keeps on Giving" - Three elderly barflies from the Central Florida coastline give an everlasting gift to an abused woman.

"The Ultimate in Hi-Def" - A fantasy/mystery story with a hint of John Cheever’s “The Enormous Radio” crossed with Twilight Zone ambiance about a state-of-the-art, flat-screen television rescuing a man from a mooching friend.

"You Can't Keep a Good Dog Down" - A young woman finds an injured jog during her morning run through Central Park and becomes involved in an ongoing NYPD investigation of a series of murders when she tries to find the dog’s owner.
