Behind the Scenes: Creating a Crime Series

By Gene Grossman

Gene Grossman created the popular 15-book series of Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries, each one with a crime that stumps the authorities and defense attorney Peter Sharp.

Fortunately, Peter has a 13-year-old legal ward named Suzi, who just happens to be a computer whiz, with a mind that works a lot faster than the adults involved in each case, so she usually solves the crime and lets Peter take the credit.

If you enjoy reading mysteries and want to try your hand at creating one - or a series - on your own, you will find this book a valuable aid, because it reveals Gene's thought processes as he created the books, and provides you with valuable information that will help you with your own writing efforts.

Also included are some 'insider' tips on printing, marketing, distribution, and much, much more.

Sorry Wrong Number - Suzie B. Mystery #1

Catching a Serial Bomber

By Gene Grossman

If you haven’t been fascinated by her brilliant Sherlock Holmes type of logic in the first 15 Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries, then now’s your chance to see what little Suzi can do when she’s out on her own… well, almost her own.

She still lives on a luxurious yacht in Marina del Rey California with her legal Guardian, attorney Peter Sharp; and she still has her trusted bodyguard Bernie, a huge Saint Bernard - but for this adventure she doesn’t want to see the adults take advantage of her superior computer skills and grab all the credit for solving the crimes, like they have in the first 15 books that chronicled Peter Sharp’s high-profile criminal cases.

The assignment she has given herself for this first solo adventure is to figure out the identity of a murderous serial church bomber, set up a trap for him, and have the press handy when she actually attempts a citizens’ arrest, with the assist of local law enforcement. At least that’s the plan.

Magic Bullets More Info

The Magic Bullets - Suzie B. Mystery #5

By Gene Grossman

Ballistics comparison tests performed on bullets recovered from several murders indicate that they were fired from the same gun – but one that could not possibly have been used, because during each time the lethal shots were fired, the weapon was in the custody of the authorities.

District Attorney Myra Scot Sharp (attorney Peter Sharp's bitter ex-wife) appoints a special prosecuting investigator, but when she and all the other adults involved fail to solve this mystery, little Suzi B. is called in for assistance and tries to prove that her amazing theory about who the murderer is, even though it contradicts the opinions of every police agency involved.

Is Suzi right or wrong this time? You'll be as surprised as Peter, Myra, and the police are when Suzi conducts an experiment on the boat that will determine the innocence or guilt of the person that she suspects is guilty.
