It's time to read Halloween-themed stories. If your taste runs more to sleuthing than to scaring, check out my Sebastian McCabe - Jeff Cody tale, "The Revengers." It's part of my first collection of shorter stories, Rogues Gallery, but also free on Kindle. Click here for the e-book at no cost.
* A costume party where all the participants are dressed as TV detectives.
* A call-back to "The Avengers" TV series with Patrick McNee and Diana Rigg.

* A classic solution in which Mac pulls it all together from clues available to the reader.
