I don't usually like ebook downloads that contain a short story and a longer promo; I usually find them to be a tactless way of pushing the reader to go buy something else by the author. However, the short story included in this download was actually a very nice length, and I surprisingly thought that the promo fit well into the download, almost continuing the short story in a way.

The short story follows Garrison Gage as he is asked by a teenage neighbor he doesn't really know to investigate the disappearance of this teen neighbor's girlfriend. Mr. Gage unwillingly agrees and starts to get back into investigation, something he had given up long before.
It's a really nice intro to the Garrison Gage series, and it was so well-written that it didn't feel rushed or too short at all. I loved the persona of Garrison, as he is a crippled man with a full sense of sarcasm, which was quite witty and humorous at times.

The short story only takes up about 1/3 of the download, though; the other 2/3 is the first few chapters of the official Book 1 of the series. It gives you more insight into Garrison's past and how he ended up in the town he is currently living in. It also really does draw you in and makes you want to keep reading, something that I may just do by buying the official book.

Overall, I really enjoyed this short story so much that I wanted more; and the fact that the promo for the first book was included satiated that desire. I think this shows promise as a mystery series, and I can't wait to see what the author does next! I highly recommend checking out this short story, because I really enjoyed the mystery.

Very entertaining short story and an intro to an intriguing new mystery character. Gage is a former PI who is damaged, physically (not too bad or depressing) and emotionally, but still uses his analytical skills to work on the mystery of a missing girl. Very well written with engaging characters.

The short story is 542 locations (no idea how many pages that is)so it's not too short. Yes, the rest of the download is the beginning of the full length mystery novel featuring Garrison Gage. That's okay, I appreciated getting a good long look at a book before buying it and reading more about Gage.

A Plunder by Pilgrims is a short story about a boy of 16 who asks his neighbor, a retired private investigator, to help him find his girl friend. His neighbor, very reluctanly, agrees to help. This is a very interesting mystery; it has a simple plot, but the main character isn't some young hansome wise-cracking guy but a retired old guy that needs a cane to walk. The author thereby made the character, with his handicap, more believeable. The story holds your attention from start to finish. The only thing wrong with it is...IT IS TOO SHORT! If that is the only thing wrong with the story, then it's not too bad, is it. Forget about the promo at the end of the Kindle book; they do that often obviously to sell other books. Read the promo if you like, it is by the same author, or don't read it. It doesn't take away that "A Plunder by Pilgrims" is a fine piece of work.

Don't let the lower rated reviews deter you from this title! Yes, this is a (very) short shory, not even a novella, followed by a longer preview of a full length novel. Maybe the description failed to mention that when it was originally published and offered for Kindle, but the product description clearly states this now.

Both the short story and the preview are written extremely well, and capture a reader's interest from the first few paragraphs. The short story could have been fleshed out a bit more, but it is perfect if you're looking to kill some time while waiting at the doctor's office. The real gem here is the longer preview. The characters are well written, the scene descriptions are vivid without being overdone or needlessly wordy, and the plot is solid. The preview is also longer than many I have read from other author's, and concludes with an enticing cliff hanger that will leave a reader scrambling to buy the full length book.

Not only are they both well written, but they are both well edited. You won't find the plague of poor grammar, spelling errors, and glaring plot problems that are common with many "free" titles. I DID however find ONE error in the preview. In one scene, the main character (Garrison Gage) is in a hospital room and the initial description of the scene indicates the hospital bedspread is tan. Later in the same scene, the bedspread is described as blue. Not a big deal, minor oversight in the editing process. As well written as the book is, many people would probably not notice it.

Bottom line, this is a GREAT read, and I can't wait to finish the full book!

A good short story. This sets up the character of Garrison Gage and his life in a small Oregon coast town. I really did like the story and wished there were more to it. But, after all, it is a "short" story. Naturally it lead me to read "The Gray and Guilty Sea", the first novel in this series.
