Walt realizes once again that retirement just isn't his cup of tea, and with a little urging from his brother-in-law, decides to become a private investigator. For five years he had served the Lady Justice wearing a white robe and a blindfold and followed the rules, but he soon discovered that the P.I. business was leading him across the line into the dark side and a completely different set of rules. When Walt comes face to face with the Lady Justice on the dark side, dressed in a tight skirt, fishnet stockings and high heels, he is faced with decisions that will change the course of his life.

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • In a charming cozy mystery series debut, Leslie Nagel’s irrepressible small-town heroine finds that her fellow book club members may be taking their Agatha Christie a bit too literally—and murder a bit too lightly. Charley Carpenter has poured heart and soul into her clothing store, Old Hat Vintage Fashions. She’ll do anything to make it a success—even join the stuffy Agathas Book Club in order to cultivate customers among the wealthy elite of Oakwood, Ohio. Although mixing with the most influential women in town has its advantages, Charley finds the endless gossip a high price to pay. But after two women with close ties to the Agathas are brutally murdered, everyone falls under threat—and suspicion. When key evidence indicates that both murders are the work of the same hand, Charley realizes that the killer has arranged each corpse in perfect imitation of crime scenes from the Club’s murder mystery reading list. She uses her membership in the Club to convince Detective Marcus Trenault to use her as an inside informant. Not that he could stop her anyway. Intelligent, fearless, and every bit as stubborn as Marc is, Charley soon learns the Agathas aren’t the only ones with secrets to protect. Passions explode as she and Marc must race against time to prevent another murder. And if Charley’s not careful, she may find herself becoming the killer’s next plot twist.

The Legend of Justice and Diamonds is finally revealed as chronicled through the recorded visions of The Creator's scribe, Acellus, the first angelic being created. His scrolls take us back into the past where future began, into an alternate reality during the sixth year reign of the first evil King who cared for none. This is the time of the first Earth, before the Earth as it is now; before the Creator fashioned angelic beings as we presently know them. It was during that time that the eternal struggle between good and evil actually began. From the void, the visions of Acellus detail two realms and yet a third: The Forest of Cards, where mankind's virtues reside; the earthly realm, under the evil dynasty of the King of Clubs; and the curious third realm, that of THE KEEPERS: the diviners of the cards. All the forces of Darkness and Light, both in the flesh and in spirit, are centered on two beings that would shape mankind and the second Earth to come: The Lady Justice and The Jack Of Diamonds. She was the moral virtue born from The Forest of Cards, and he the infamous outlaw, first-born of the King of Clubs-thought to have been murdered as an infant. Through their incredulous, impassioned trials, hidden through the ages and now revealed, we find out who and what we really are, and more importantly, who and what we are not.
