Book Description

"If you like reading about flawed, noir-ish characters and if you're a fan of short stories, I recommend getting the entire Casper Bogart collection." 
Jon P. Bloch 
(The Kindle Book Review)
HARD WORKING RED
Red Fitzpatrick works hard for everything he has in this life:
His education. His plumbing business.
His beautiful, high maintenance wife.
Yes, Red is a hard worker.
But one day, Red's calm, even, work-ethic, turns to a murderous rage when Johnny Simone, an electrician and the only man in the world Red hates, reveals a secret that changes his life.
A New Century Pulp PSYCHO-THRILLER from CASPER BOGART!
--Plus--
LEMONADE STAND
In the little town of Virgilina , Virginia, some strange things are happening: mysterious illnesses, odd disappearances...
But none of that matters to a little boy. All he wants is to have a Lemonade Stand, so he can make enough money to take care of his Mama, now that his Daddy went away.
And that's just what he does: until things turn deadly. 

Contents:
HARD WORKING RED (Cover Story, 2644 words)
Plus, a bonus story,
LEMONADE STAND (Bonus Story, 1211 words)


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Casper Bogart loves writing stories.

Mystery, thrillers and horror; the kind of stories that get under your skin, creep you out, keep you guessing and wanting more--these are the stories that Mr. Bogart specializes in.

One reviewer called his work "twisty tales with a juicy kick." Another was "impressed with how much character development the author packed into such few words."
In a previous life, Casper Bogart wrote for some of the leading network television shows--under another name. He'd tell you that name, but... where's the mystery in that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and... December 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course, the cliche is "short and sweet", but in this case of these two stories, I'll change that to "short and sharp" (read: tangy, brisk, pointed), particularly since the bonus story features lemonade.

These are a great length for coffee break reading, but will have you grinning to yourself for the rest of the day -- I look forward to more stories from Casper Bogart!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two fantastic shorts February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These were two very enjoyable short stories. I'm impressed with how much character development the author packed into such few words. I loved how he made me want to root for Red no matter how the plumber decided to handle his problems, and I could feel every emotion right along with him. Lemonade Stand gave me that 'aha' moment I love, with the innocence of a child leading the way.

I'll be reading more by Casper Bogart for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisty tales with a juicy kick December 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What evil lurks in the heart of Joe The Plumber? Why should you reconsider purchasing a cup of lemonade from little Timmy down the street? These and other dark questions are answered by Caspar Bogart in these amusing, twisty (and twisted) little tales. The author has a real talent for setting up characters and situations in terse, punchy prose, and then delivering a finale that truly jolts. Can't wait to read more from this entertaining writer.
