Dogwood Press is proud to sell only author signed copies of our titles!
In his first two books, Rainbow’s End and Midnight, award-winning author John M. Floyd gave us a total of sixty short stories of mystery, suspense, and deception. In this collection of forty more tales, he once again uses his talent for classic storytelling and his love of plot twists to keep us guessing and enthralled until the very last word.
As before, Floyd goes beyond the mystery/crime genre to dip occasionally into areas like westerns and romance and humor and fantasy–but each story promises (and delivers) a rollercoaster ride of delicious plot reversals and a Hitchcock-style surprise ending. And his fans will be pleased to discover several more installments in the lighthearted small-town “series” featuring retired schoolteacher Angela Potts and her former (and long-suffering) student Sheriff Chunky Jones.
So if you love mysteries, or if you enjoyed the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents or Twilight Zone TV series, or if you just like to be kept on the edge of your seat, this collection of stories is right up your alley. But be advised: reading it might make you lose track of time. Better make sure your clock works…
Note: The first story in Clockwork, “The Powder Room,” was included among Other Distinguished Mystery Stories of 2009 in The Best Mystery Stories of 2010.
