5 beacons! "Bugs: After reading about the aerators cutting the victim to ribbons, it was like the tiny hairs on the back of my neck stood at attention. Fixated: Okay, for sure, anyone in a chat room even briefly should be extra careful. Murder is usually the start of the investigation for Pete Shasta and Danny Vincent but not without a bit of desire, retribution, betrayal, and atonement. In this anthology there are five stories that will quench the thirstiest mystery readers. The whole series surrounding Detectives Pete and Danny are fascinating; not to mention fast-paced and loaded in emotion that will have you spellbound. Karen Wiesner and Chris Spindler are such great collaborators. They take a story and turn it into a piece of art. Their suspense chillers are so cleverly dazzling that it leaves the reader eagerly anticipating the next installment. Their writing is so driven that it leaves the reader with the story still refreshed in their mind days later. This is a collection of stories that readers should not miss. The plots are so well developed with enormous twists and turns that leaves the reader rapidly turning pages to the end. A good mystery always leaves the reader delighted but an even greater mystery full of bone-chilling suspense leaves the reader completely satisfied. Once you read one of Ms. Wiesner and Ms. Spindler's books, you just can't stop! Five mystery suspense tales that leave you breathless until the crime is solved. I really enjoy their style of writing. If I could I would give this anthology a ten, it is so incredible!" ~Lighthouse Reviews

5 hearts! "This is a great set of five stories involving a couple of detectives in the small town of Falcon's Bend, Wisconsin. Pete Shasta and Danny Vincent each take a starring role in the mysteries whether working alone or with one another. The stories fill in background for some of the circumstances mentioned in DEGREES OF SEPARATION, Book 1 of the Falcon's Bend Series. "Fixated": Wow! I would say that Ms. Wiesner and Ms. Spindler really hit their stride in the last half of the book. This story was wild and crazy. Without giving away the ending (which was a surprise and a half), I was stunned. You’ll be amazed at the reality of this story. It’s one of those things that really could happen--even to you. Risa and Victor’s budding romance is just icing on the cake of this story. Hang onto your hat and enjoy the ride. Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I’m looking forward to more mysteries/suspense stories from Falcon’s Bend. I thought each story touched a different part of me as a reader. I was able to associate in unique ways with each of the situations and characters... I think Ms. Wiesner and Ms. Spindler have a great collaborative future together. " ~Once Upon a Romance

4 cups! ““Bugs”: I like the way this story shows Pete as a person with feelings as he is concerned over his marriage, and also finding if there is a killer in the town. I found it eerie the way the victim was discovered in this spine-tingling tale. “Fixated”: I enjoyed the way Risa and Victor has a blossoming romance. The blending in of the stalker and Victor’s concern for her is brilliantly penned. The ending definitely leaves the reader intrigued. These fast-paced stories keep the reader engaged throughout. I simply adore how Karen Wiesner and Chris Spindler team up to bring mystery and suspense to life in these pages. Their masterminds have taken five stories and bedazzled this reader. The chilling suspense in FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES, Volume I (The Early Cases) is awesome. I believe I had an adrenaline rush with just about each of them. This assortment has clever plots that thrill and send chills at the same time. The believable characters left an impact on this reader.” ~Coffee Time Romance & More

""Bugs": Entertaining, engaging! This “who done it” short story introduces Lt. Pete Shasta and his hometown Falcon Bend to the readers. I found the characters to be engaging and the story pleasant to read. I enjoyed reading about and getting to know Pete as he investigates and then solves his first murder case. "Fixated": Good, memorable! Pete Shasta and Danny Vincent get to investigate a case together. An enjoyable read, I loved the sizzle between Risa and her cute neighbor…and I also enjoyed the chase as they tracked down Risa’s stalker. It was a thrilling moment when the stalker got his just deserves in the end." ~WRDF Review

4 stars! “Bugs is Pete Shasta’s first murder case on the FBPD. We get a look at Pete and Donna while still married. The story clarified a lot for me regarding his previous marriage. Fixated tells the story of Risa Nitzberg, Falcon’s Bends newest resident. She has a stalker following her. When the stalker attempts to get more personal her neighbor, Victor Brooks, steps in to save her. This is actually quite a sweet story and an upbeat way to end the book. FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES,
