Double Cross

Dewey Webb Mysteries Short Story

Dewey Webb is back in a suspenseful short story!

When Ellis Dukakis – a man known to skirt the boundaries of the law – hires Denver PI Dewey Webb for a quick surveillance job, Dewey figures it’s some fast cash to help him pay bills. But when the subject of Dewey’s surveillance turns on him, Dewey finds himself caught between two thieves bent on double-crossing each other. Now Dewey may lose out on not only several days’ pay, but his life as well.

This 9,000 work short story is a hard-boiled, historical mystery that’s great for fans who love a traditional detective crime story with a noir flavor, but without a lot of sex or swearing.

From an Amazon #1 Bestselling Author – over 1 million books in circulation.

Great Reviews for the Reed Ferguson private investigator series:

Kirkus Reviews:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish’s comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.

5 star review:
Oh how I’ve missed the Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe characters that saw me with a flashlight in the dead of night flipping pages to see what happened next. Thank you Ms. Pawlish for bringing back to life this long-lost art of the detective battling against all odds and getting to the bottom of things.
