Praise for Murder is Such Sweet Revenge
If you like going back to exotic, romantic times, you will love Tony Piazza's "Murder is Such Sweet Revenge." Although Tom Logan thinks he's just going on his honeymoon with his sweetheart-now wife-Rita, things change in a hurry. Set against the backdrop of the romantic Hotel Del as we locals used to call it on Coronado Island off San Diego, it's quite a setting. 1933 never looked so good, or so dangerous!

Praise for Anything Short of Murder
If you love Mary Higgins Clark, or Agatha Christie, this is a book you will thoroughly enjoy. The setting is Los Angeles and Hollywood during the early 1930's, when the country was recovering from the Depression, and theaters were an source of entertainment & hope for Americans. Since it is one of my favorite eras, I appreciated the research the author did on places, fashion & personalities. The plot was full of suspense, and the ending...surprising.

Praise for A Murder Amongst Angels
It’s 1931, and the City of Angels is in the midst of its most celebrated period: the studio era, which isn’t always kind to young actresses or honest cops.

With Logan now a private eye, one of his newest clients turns into a beautiful corpse overnight—as pretty girls are wont to do in hard-boiled murder mysteries.
