<strong>An Amazon Bestseller, and one of the most original detective duos in fiction: A freelance journalist and her Gypsy mother-in-law! Publisher’s Weekly said: “Fascinating gypsy lore, unforgettable characters and a wicked sense of humor...” A dash of the paranormal too.</strong><br /> <br />Meredith Blevins’s entire 3-book Annie Szabo Mystery series— <strong>two of which were Library Journal’s TOP FIVE picks in two successive years are together. Irresistible!</strong>Freelance journalist Annie Szabo has a way of attracting… unusual experiences. Together with her pushy mother-in-law Madame Mina, the combination is as combustible as a Gypsy funeral. These two are as funny as they are clever, and their hilariously querulous relationship is the real fun of the supernatural cozy series.<br /><br />Once you marry into a Gypsy clan, just try to get out! Annie Szabo loved her husband, but after his death, she was only too happy to leave his outrageous clan behind, especially Madame Mina, tarot reader, psychic advisor, and philosopher – with her signature accessories: a man (or two) and her red pumps. <br /><br />Some might call them madcap, zany, eccentric; but really one word says it all: Gypsy. Well, that, and juicy: pulsing with the rhythms – and juices – of life, birth, and death, with the California wine country wind in your hair.<br /><br /><strong>"Fascinating gypsy lore, unforgettable characters and a wicked sense of humor distinguish Blevins's highly unusual mystery debut... This stellar first, with its assured prose, will delight any mystery fan.” – <em>Publishers Weekly</em> in a STARRED REVIEW</strong>.<br /><br /><h3>THE HUMMINGBIRD WIZARD</h3><br />When her oldest friend and former brother-in-law, Jerry, turns up dead, Annie’s plunged back into the family she tried to leave behind. Annie knows Jerry’s murder was not the random street robbery the police believe it to be, but how is she supposed to prove it? <br /><br />As Annie turns amateur detective, THE HUMMINGBIRD WIZARD turns sexy. Truth to tell, it’s probably one of the sexiest mysteries you're ever going to read, but not because it's explicit--there’s just something about that…wizard. Lawyers, criminals, kink, aerial artistry, magic, and more murder mysteries, coupled with Blevins’s trademark humor, make for a delicious—and very funny-- supernatural cozy, with a healthy dose of romance.<br /><br /><h3>THE VANISHED PRIESTESS</h3><br />Annie is heartbroken when her neighbor and good friend, Margo Spanger, the owner-operator of a New Age circus that helps support a home for abused women, is murdered. She’s also frightened—her own daughter is an abused wife who’s a resident of Margo’s project. Along with Annie’s grandson.<br /><br />The plot thickens as quickly as a roux-- Margo's partner, Lili, goes missing the day of Margo's death, causing the shelter to fall into disarray, thus threatening its residents, and the detective team of Annie and Madame Mina swings into action!<br /><br />A fast, funny, and very original paranormal murder mystery. <br /><br /><h3>THE RED HOT EMPRESS</h3><br />Nudged by her Gypsy mother-in-law, Madame Mina, freelance journalist Annie Szabo writes an article about Jimmy Qi, an Asian boy with the power to heal through music, which is right down the Szabos’ paranormal alley. But their good intentions soon put the youngster in danger. Everyone, it seems, wants a piece of the rising star of San Francisco's Chinatown—including a shady evangelist, the FBI, the tongs, and a man who talks to dolphins. After two suspicious deaths, Annie and Jimmy go on the lam, not knowing whom to trust or why.<br /><br />THE RED HOT EMPRESS is a meditation on staying alive in the most electric sense of the word, taking us deep into the tender hearts of two loving families.<br /><br />“We are tribal, all of us. We’re not floating in this soup called life alone.” –Madame Mina<br /><br /><b>COMING SOON - The 4th Annie Szabo Mystery THE KING OF HEARTS!</b><br />The Hummingbird Wizard returns. The Szabo women in Texas. There’s only one thing left to say: WHEN?<br />
The Obama Inheritance: Fifteen Stories of Conspiracy Noir

Noir meets diverse voices and transforms the genre into an over-the-top, transcendental psychedelic thriller ride of pulpy goodness in <b>THE OBAMA INHERITANCE</b>, a collection of fifteen stories of conspiracy noir curated by editor and award-winning African-American crime novelist Gary Phillips.

<br /><br />In the tradition of satirical works of Swift and Twain, with nods to the likes of William Burroughs, Asimov and Philip K. Dick, these tales contain vigilante First Ladies, Supreme Court judges who can clone themselves, gear-popping robots of doom, and races of ancient lizard people revealing their true master plan … and these are just the tame ones mashed up in the blender of fake news bots, climate change is but a hoax by the Chinese and humans roamed with dinosaurs.<br /><br />In an era where the outlandish and fantastic has permeated our media 24/7, where mind-bending conspiracy theories shape our views, THE OBAMA INHERITANCE writers riff on the numerous fictions spun about the 44th president of the U.S. Although Obama himself does not appear in most of these stories, contributors spin deliberately outlandish and fantastic twists on many of the dozens of screwball, bizarro conspiracy theories floated about the president during his years in office and turn them on their heads.<br /><br />THE OBAMA INHERITANCE editor <b>Gary Phillips</b> is a critically acclaimed author of mystery and graphic novels (<i>Peepland</i>, <i>Violent Spring</i>, <i> and Warlord of Willow Ridge</i>). Raised in South Central Los Angeles, Phillips draws on his experiences from anti-police abuse community organizing and anti-apartheid activism. He was the chair of the Eleanor Taylor Bland Crime Fiction Writers of Color committee, and is president of the Private Eye Writers of America.<br /><br />Contributors include famed crime-detective author and essayist <b>Walter Mosley</b>, professor and former Department of Justice attorney <b>Christopher Chambers</b> (<i>Sympathy for the Devil</i>), noir raconteur <b>Andrew Nette</b>, actor and novelist <b>Danny Gardner</b> (<i>A Negro and an Ofay</i>), former Maine assistant attorney general <b>Kate Flora</b> (<i>Death in Paradise</I>), award-winning playwright and novelist <b>Désirée Zamorano</b>, and the Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master <b>Robert Silverberg.</b>
