Who killed Teddy the handyman – if anyone killed him at all? Was it Sid, one of the new owners of Pride Lodge whose past gets darker the closer you look? Was it the woman whose name was once Emily, when she witnessed the murder of her parents in a burglary gone bad, and who has waited thirty years for vengeance? Was it young Happy Corcoran, promoted to bartender only to vanish three days before Teddy was found dead at the bottom of the empty pool? Find out in ‘Murder at Pride Lodge’, the first in the Kyle Callahan Mystery series.
Kyle and his life partner Danny Durban head to Pride Lodge, a beloved gay resort in the Pennsylvania countryside and their favorite getaway from New York City, over what they expect to be a festive Halloween weekend. What they find instead is a web of murder, deceit, and revenge served cold as a knife blade.
Manhattan’s Katherine Pride Gallery becomes the center of high art and low death in Pride and Perilous, the second of the Kyle Callahan Mysteries. Amateur photographer Kyle is about to have his first photo exhibit at the gallery, just as someone begins killing people connected to it. Bodies start to fall and Kyle realizes somebody wants this gallery closed forever. Joining Kyle and Danny are several of the characters from Murder at Pride Lodge: Kyle’s down-but-never-out TV reporter boss, Imogene Landis. Margaret Bowman, aging owner of successful New York City eatery Margaret’s Passion. The odious Linus Hern, restaurateur from hell and Danny’s nemesis. And Detective Linda Sikorsky from the New Hope, Pennsylvania, police force. She worked on the Pride Lodge murders and became close friends with Kyle and Danny. She’s in town for the opening of Kyle’s show and to fill them in on the new woman in her life. No sooner does she leave the train at Penn Station than she finds herself joining Kyle in the chase to stop a killer as time ticks away. Can they do it before the clock strikes death again?
First came ‘Murder at Pride Lodge’, where murder met mayhem in the Pennsylvania countryside. Next was ‘Pride and Perilous’, the collision of high art and low death at Manhattan’s Katherine Pride Gallery. And now, the Pride Trilogy concludes with ‘Death by Pride.’ It’s Gay Pride weekend, the most festive weekend of the year in New York City. Hundreds of thousands of partygoers arrive to show the world how to have a good time.
Stalking the party is the most successful serial killer the city has ever seen. He claims his victims in threes and has just begun his newest spree. Detective Linda Sikorsky comes to town to visit Kyle Callahan and his husband Danny Durban. It’s her first Pride Parade and may well be her last. Harmless fun turns to terror in a frantic effort to stop the killer once the first body floats to the river’s edge. This time it’s personal, and this time one of them might not make it out alive.
It’s been six months since the Pride Gallery murders in Manhattan. Kyle Callahan and his partner Danny Durban head to rural New Jersey for a relaxing week with their dear friend, Detective Linda Sikorsky, recently retired and newly in love. Driving back from dinner with Linda and her fiancée Kirsten, they discover the body of Abigail Creek, run off the road on a bicycle wearing only her nightgown and slippers. Kyle and Linda quickly find themselves learning more than they want to know about the Creek family and the home they call CrossCreek Farm. In the words of Clara Presley’s grandmother, “Whatever grows there, grows in the shadows.” Come along as Linda and Kyle make their way into the shadows and enter the spider’s web, determined to find out who in this family of spiders is the deadliest one.
In the 5th installment of the Kyle Callahan Mysteries, Kyle finds himself in therapy after ending the life of the Pride Killer, the most successful serial killer New York City has ever known. Putting an end to evil was the right thing to do, but it left Kyle in need of the services of psychotherapist Peter Benoit. Kyle decides the best way to re-engage with life is to do what he can’t stop doing: solving murders. Joined once again by his friend Detective Linda Sikorsky, Kyle takes on his first cold case, the murder of a teenager three years ago. Corinne Copley was killed on a Manhattan side street for nothing more than her cell phone. Or was that really the reason? Come along as Kyle delves into the murky undercurrent of New York City politics, pursues a crime boss who kills as easily as she breathes, and seeks justice for the father of a murdered child.
Retired homicide detective Linda Sikorsky and her wife Kirsten McClellan head to Maine for a long weekend of rest, relaxation and rewrites as Kirsten finishes drafting her first novel. Bad weather alters their plans, forcing them to stop for the night at the Cliff’s Edge, a motel known for secrecy and indiscretion. Something murderous goes bump in the night, sending the women on a search for justice when a young reporter’s body is found dumped and violated on a back road. A road Linda must now go down, no matter where it takes her, or what it reveals.
