New Paperback Benny Cahill Collection Now Available on Amazon

New Benny Cahill paperback

Benny Cahill is back in action, kind of. This post is to announce the release of a paperback collection of the Benny Cahill stories. The Benny Cahill, Troubleshooter paperback contains the stories that you already enjoy (Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth, Where There’s a Will, Now Hear This, Reach for It, and To the Moon). It also includes an entirely new story written just for the paperback.

The new story is entitled “Brothers in Arms”. This new short story is set after the events of “Reach for It”. In this story, one of Cahill’s old war buddies is accused of murder and it’s up to Cahill to prove the man’s innocence.

As part of creating this paperback, I spent several months editing and rewriting the existing five Benny Cahill stories. I have updated them on all ebook marketplaces, so if you previously ordered a copy it should be updated soon.

If you have friends that enjoy noir detective stories, tell them about the Benny Cahill, Troubleshooter paperback. Remember that the Benny Cahill stories are designed to be flinch-free.

Benny Cahill added to a new store

I have recently added the Benny Cahill stories (minus Brothers in Arms, which is a paperback exclusive) to a new ebook store. The store is named Leanpub. Leanpub is primarily designed to help technically-minded people write and publish their own books. Because of this many of the books that they offer are very technical. However, Leanpub has some tools that are very helpful to non-technical writers. I’m planning to cover the merits of Leanpub in e future article. Until then, take a couple of minutes to look at my page on Leanpub.

Please share this post with your fellow detective story buffs.

Current projects

I currently working on a new Benny Cahill mystery for an Amazon bundle being put together by a number of fellow writers. I don’t want to give away too much information, but it titled All that Glitters is Not Gold and it involves Cahill in a museum. Keep your eyes out for information about the bundle. Until then, enjoy this new cover.


On top everything else, I am working on a mystery novel collaboration project with two fellow writers. All I can say is that it is a noir story set in modern-day. We’re still in the early stage of the project.

Coming Attractions

Up until now, this blog has mainly been a place for me to tell you about my new books and projects. Starting next week, I will start writing posts about my favorite Old Time Radio and TV programs. If you like my stories, you’ll enjoy these great shows from the Golden Age of radio.

Announcing the Newest Benny Cahill eBook on Smashwords

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 mysteries.
