Dead Guest, Introduction to DS Mark Cage. Short story review & what to expect from the new detective by Author Scott Gidman.

There ia a new detective in town and his name is Detective Mark Cage. Written by Author Scott Gidman, we are in for a treat.

‘Dead Guest‘ is a very short story, but packed with good reading for us crime / detective lovers. We see an introduction to this detective when he comes home to find a dead body in his house.Β

Description:

DS Mark Cage is muddling his way through life. Working the long hours which caused his divorce he is in desperate need of a break. Unfortunately for him, he has to first deal with an unidentified corpse waiting for him on his kitchen floor when he comes home. Can he convince the DI he didn’t kill anybody? Can he help solve who the man is and where he comes from or even catch the killer?

This is a short story, not a full novel and is the first taste of Detective Sergeant Mark Cage.

The next book in the series, Picture Perfect, is due for release December 2018

My Thoughts:

This is a fabulous short story that you can whizz through in a coffee break. I am always keen to find new detectives to love, and I am pretty sure that Mark Cage will be one of those.

After a very busy day, Cage comes home to find a dead man in his kitchen. With no idea who? how? or why? Cage’s detective head is straight on as he calls the police who rush to his home, when Cage realises the finger will be pointed at him!

Can he prove his innocence and find out what happened? You know I can’t tell you that, but what I can tell you is that I am looking forward to the full length novel ‘Picture Perfect’, which is due out in December.

    Ohh, I bet you can’t wait for December to read Picture Perfect?
    I love how lately you reviewed short story and a novella. I feel like those usually get neglected in the blogging world, which is a shame, especially bc they take less time to read, and are usually cheaper or even free.
    But I am also guilty when it comes to this…
    Anyway, it’s nice to see you back, even if it’s for a little while… πŸ™‚

      Thanks Irena. I do enjoy reviewing the short stories as they impact straight away and the reviews are quite simple to write. A good way back in to reviewing. I have a few full novels to review too so hopefully you will see more on here soon. πŸ˜‰
