A Thrilling Sequel to The Grievance Committee

In Frank R. Southers’ new novel, ‘A Serious Mistake’, the law isn’t just a job for Scott Lonnigan—it’s his life.

Frank R. Southers’ new book, A Serious Mistake is the second novel in his The Grievance Committee series.  The series centers on the Grievance Committee of San Antonio, Texas, with each novel focusing on a slightly different storyline.  A Serious Mistake focuses on criminal defense lawyer Scott Lonnigan, who takes his job very seriously.

Scott Lonnigan treats his appointment to the Grievance Committee in San Antonio, Texas just the same as his job as a criminal defense lawyer: with deadly seriousness.  Many would go so far as to say that the job consumes Scott’s life.  He throws himself into his work, always making sure to use common sense when judging the often heated and weighty complaints against lawyers.  A lot hangs in the balance for members of both sides, and Lonnigan makes sure he respects the importance of his job.  In his eyes, every accusation means at least one person, whether the lawyer or the client, made a serious mistake.

A Serious Mistake also develops a great deal of other characters, preparing the reader for Southers’ upcoming third book and beyond, where they will surely meet them again.  His compelling introductions to this varied group of people kindles in the reader the desire to get to know them better, ensuring that his further installments in The Grievance Committee will be hotly anticipated.  However, readers will hardly be thinking ahead as the novel grows more thrilling and Scott Lonnigan faces the consequences of his own terrible mistake.  Now the judge is the accused, and his world will be turned upside down.

A Madcap Mystery-Adventure

Author Norm Spitzig takes readers on an epic journey of good and evil punctuated by whimsy, mystery, and good cheer in ‘Soul on Nice’.

Norm Spitzig’s new novel, Soul on Nice, follows Esther, the likable, quirky waitress at Old Bunbury Golf Links and Reading Club.  Readers of Private Clubs in America and Around the World and Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury, two books Spitzig has written under the pseudonym Clive Endive Ogive IV, will recognize Esther as the protagonist of those works.

Soul on Nice is a truly international adventure, opening with Esther sipping Chardonnay on a plane bound for beautiful New Zealand.  Esther, an aging waitress and fixture at Old Bunbury, is heading to her favorite country as a reward for her impressive detective work, having solved a murder (see Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury) at the club.  So, Bunbury’s sister club will host the sharp-minded sleuth and honor her in the lavish style of private clubs. However, a colossal battle of good and evil looms in Esther’s future, promising excitement of an altogether different kind to shade Esther’s journeys.

Soul On Ice is sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers.  Lovers of clever mysteries will be entranced by Esther’s latest challenge, while lovers of the travelogue will appreciate the detailed descriptions of one of the world’s most beautiful countries.  All readers with a sense of humor can’t help but be drawn in by Esther’s sassy, yet kindhearted, knowledge of all the goings-on at Bunbury for the past half century.  Finally, readers who are interested in the madcap world of private golf clubs will be delighted by Spitzig’s accurate portrayal.

Jack Lynch is a hedge fund manager and lothario who deals insider information. He juggles government, corporate, and Wall Street interests in his lucrative, corrupt schemes. One day, his determination to net a healthy profit proves to have irrevocable consequences, as his actions unleash a lethal drug upon the unsuspecting populace.

Many take the dangerous drug, and Jack turns a healthy profit on the stocks he bought low and then sold high. Jack, however, knows that the stock price will soon fall as deaths related to the drug are being reported, but the news has not gone public yet. His underhanded dealings have their consequences, though, and he soon finds himself and the friends he colluded with—Teddy and Dinky—under investigation by the FDA, the FBI, and the SEC.

All the money in the world can't keep Jack safe as revenge waits in the wings. The suspense continues to build until the nail-biting climax in this fast-paced, thrilling new novel readers are unlikely to forget.

One reviewer said,"I sort of continued to live in the story because I didn't want it to end. There's a bonus - it promises to be a series. I can hardly wait!" by Jitsu

Khamneithang Vaiphei commented, “Trader is a novel not to be missed.”
