Paperback: 200 pages

E-Book File Size: 740 KB



Meet Bert Shambles, a perpetually confused young man whose life continually mirrors his surname. He is stuck back in his suburban Long Island hometown, enduring a three-year suspended sentence for an act of chivalry gone terribly wrong. He works part-time at a church thrift shop and makes extra money by selling “dead stock”—vintage clothes that have never been worn—to a local boutique.

On a routine pick up for the thrift shop, Bert learns that the widow of a recently deceased pro golfer is offering a reward for the return of her dead husband’s favorite putter—and an even bigger reward for proof that her husband was murdered. Bert jumps at the chance, and soon finds himself being chased by a violent, van-driving maniac, romantically involved with a mobster’s daughter, and quite possibly being set up to take the fall by his probation officer and crazy ex-girlfriend. As the forces of good and evil close in around him, Bert must race to clear his name and discover the truth so he doesn’t wind up in prison…or worse.

Filled with twists, turns, and unforgettable characters, and propelled by a truly lovable hero and wicked sense of humor, Dead Stock heralds the arrival of a wonderful new mystery series.

  1. Hello! I thought I’d introduce myself. You & I have been in the same reading challenges. I’m sorry to read that you have trouble with an arm. You have a busy blog. I can’t tell how many physical draws are available to Canada but wow, there was another release by Heather Blake. LOL

    I wish to personally tell you: I have launched 3 new reading challenges! One covers anything paranormal / spiritual, one is a peculiar outlet for mystery, and there is a pair of word games from which to choose. It’s a pleasure to finally say hello to another peer in our community. Warmly, Carolyn of ‘RIEDEL Fascination’.

  2. This book sounds like it has some quirky characters and some humor thrown in. Thanks for this giveaway.

  3. It certainly sounds like it has some twists to it, I like the sound of this. Thanks for the chance to win.
