Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth
Being a private eye means helping the little guy and that is what Benny Cahill does for a living. The problem is: this kind of work can be bad for your health. After helping a jockey put a bet on a fixed race, Benny loses the money and finds his client dead. With the cops eyeing him for the hot seat, Benny Cahill must bring the real killers to justice. All because a jockey had never heard of the phrase: “Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth”.
Trouble is My Client
Benny Cahill is back. After getting involved in a crooked horse race in Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth, the cynical and wise-cracking private detective returns in four never before published short mysteries (Where There’s a Will, Now Hear This, Reach for It, and To the Moon). These noir stories are inspired by the author’s love of Old Time Radio shows. This collection includes a foreword by Theresa Linden, author of Chasing Liberty.
Benny Cahill, Troubleshooter
For the first time, the first 6 Benny Cahill stories are available in print. Benny Cahill is a man with a purpose. The Second World War changed him, hardened him, made him a survivor. Now he works as a private detective, a troubleshooter for hire. When you can’t turn to the cops or when you’re out of options, go to Benny Cahill. He’ll get the job done or die trying. The author found inspiration in detective shows from the Golden Age of Radio, especially those starring Jack Webb: Jeff Regan, Investigator; Johnny Madero; and Pat Novak…for Hire.
