Book Description

EDGE OF SUSPENSE: Thrilling Tales of Mystery & Murder is a collection of mystery, suspense, and thriller short stories from bestselling crime writer R. Barri Flowers. Tales include "Dinner Crashers," where FBI and Secret Service agents try to stop an attempted political assassination; a noir mystery, "The Wrong End of a Gun Barrel," where a beautiful blonde turns out to be more than a man bargained for; "Vandals," where two teenagers find themselves running for their lives after vandalizing a car; "The Ripper's Rage," where a serial killer of prostitutes in 1888 NYC has been captured only to escape; and "The Phone Call," in which a woman must confront her fears when she receives an unlikely phone call; along with five other page-turning mystery shorts.


"Gripping, tightly woven tale you won't want to put down. Author neatly contrasts natural beauty of tropical paradise with ugliness of murder and aftermath. " -- John Lutz, Edgar winner and bestselling author of Mister X on MURDER IN MAUI

"A police procedural of the highest order, mixing equal parts Sue Grafton and Jeffrey Deaver with a sprinkling of Patricia Cornwell." -- Jon Land, bestselling author of Strong Justice on MURDER IN MAUI

"Flowers once again has written a page-turner legal thriller that begins with a bang and rapidly moves along to its final page. He has filled the novel with believable characters and situations." -- Midwest Book Review on STATE'S EVIDENCE

"A model of crime fiction... Flowers may be a new voice in modern mystery writing, but he is already one of its best voices." -- Statesman Journal on JUSTICE SERVED

"An excellent look at the jurisprudence system...will appeal to fans of John Grisham and Linda Fairstein." -- Harriet Klausner on PERSUASIVE EVIDENCE

"An interesting blend of classic film noir and rough, modern cinema... Quick action and tight dialogue make it a jolting thriller, but it's also got the psychological tightness of a good mystery puzzle." -- Robert A. Sloan, author of Raven Dance on DEAD IN THE ROSE CITY
