Foxhole

Foxhole by Jim VanoreThis was Stan Nelchik's first Father's Day without his dad. The father of three girls himself, Stan was inherently protective, and came to believe in his father's admonition that he was meant to be a "girl father," not having the ability to handle a son. "With boys, you gotta spit things out," the senior Nelchik had always advised. "You can't keep anything from them." But now, as Stan faces his first Father's Day as a parent without his dad, he has to come to grips with the truth-his father, contrary to his own advice, had kept something from him, releasing it only on his death bed.

The Victorian Mystery Megapack: 27 Classic Mystery Tales

The Victorian Mystery Megapack: 27 Classic Mystery Tales by Wilkie Collins & Arthur Conan Doyle & G. K. ChestertonThe theme of this Megapack is classic mystery and crime fiction from the Victorian era. We have taken the liberty of extending the qualifying publication dates to the end of World War I, since that event marked more of a turning point in world literature than the advent of the Edwardian Age. Certainly the spirit of Victorian crime fiction continued beyond Queen Victoria. This volume contains 25 stories and 2 bonus novels, offering hours of reading pleasure.
