Today we are excited to introduce you to A Tale of Two Freddies by Eric Small.
A Tale of Two Freddies: An Arnie & Zellie Cozy Mystery
The corpse barely missed my head. No flying cadavers, just a new case falling into the lives of our intrepid unlicensed detectives. While in dogged pursuit of a killer, Arnie and Zellie navigate the tricky waters of a full-blown romance. Solvers of a single case, they need all of that experience and more to find the murderer. How the heck did the killer get the dead guy up there? And what’s the deal with two men having almost the same name? Did one of them kill the other? Did someone else?
Along the way, Arnie and Zellie encounter a real estate company with a dark side and its own enforcer, a building manager with a chip on her shoulder, and a cleaning company owner with a grudge. Not to mention a massage therapist doubling as a realtor, and a florist who may or may not have witnessed a murder. And how does the gruff but kind deli owner fit into it all?
Is it worth risking their lives to find out?

A Tale of Two Freddies Excerpt:
“We have ways of convincing people to talk,” I said. I couldn’t believe I said that. It was something out of an old war movie. A bad one.
“Oh, and what are they?” Her eyes narrowed, but I plunged ahead.
“Well, we are always respectful. We are always polite, and are not pushy or arrogant in the least. Also, we always compliment the people we interview on their appearance. By the way, that’s a lovely outfit you’re wearing. The color perfectly suits your flawless complexion.”
“Thank you…” she started, and then laughed. “Okay, you got me,” she chuckled.
