Neath Lily Pond by Mark Souza A nanny hurls her young charge into Hartford, Connecticut's Lily Pond with a pair of metal boots strapped to his feet. The story winds up on the desk of newspaper reporter Jim Woodward. He has only hours to get to the bottom of it if he's going to make deadline. If the nanny was hellbent on drowning the boy, why drive seventy miles to do it. As he searches for answers, Jim finds more than he bargained for.

High-Heeled Killers by Kate Cornwell Jason, an exhausted accountant in the middle of tax season, has had enough of his over-demanding boss, Mr. Ashlock. He decides to give the boss a little of the pain he's been dishing out. What he doesn't expect is for Mr. Ashlock to die. Two of Jason's co-workers decide to help him cover up the murder. They are stopped by the police (with the body in the trunk), they are almost caught dumping the body, and just when they think they're about to be arrested, Jason comes face-to-face with a surprising truth.

Lady Justice Wears Heels by Stephen Penner A woman is murdered, her throat slit, and it's D.A. Dave Brunelle's job to put the murderer away. The defendant fled barefoot, abandoning her shoes in the pool of blood under the victim. It looks like an open and shut case, but Brunelle should have known better. If he doesn't figure out the truth--and fast--it's his blood that might be the next to get spilled.

The Numbers Game by Jonas Saul Trevor sells vacuums door-to-door for a living. When one of his customers ends up dead, the police come looking for him, but his only crime has been the theft of the woman's shoes, which turns him into murder suspect number one. When his lawyer discovers mistakes made by the police, Trevor is set free. Now he can get back at the people who made him the way he is, as his past still haunts him.

If It Wasn't For Sylvia by Christi Craig A serious case of bad luck, in the form of a powerful touch, follows Sylvia Drake and drives her into the back rooms of Peterson's Funeral Home. Sylvia isn't dead; though, she isn't exactly living. Still, she considers herself lucky for once, settled, and safe, in a place where her hands can't do any more damage to others than is already done. When Max Cooper shows up as the new hire in Bereavement Sales, though, his presence rattles Sylvia to the core, and she decides that playing it safe is no longer an option.

The Deadest One by E. Victoria Flynn Raised under almost constant video surveillance and weaned on art, Morgan develops a spellbinding relationship with her muse Eden.
