Our stories this issue create a cohesiveness much like the near-perfect, slightly varied petals of the intricate dahlia. Imagery overlaps as the invisible becomes visible, and vise versa. Characters crisscross as male and female voices run the gamut between witless and wise. Settings emerge from virtual to natural while plots gradually unfold to reveal often surprising results.
Though diverse in content, an intuitive theme blossoms as these stories and photos blend to create a rhythm for the senses, a chorus of personalities, a symphony arcing from conflict to resolution.

Stories Not to Tell by Bob Strother
Sequel to Shug’s Place

or order both books for $22.00! See Details Below

When an Army buddy’s twelve-year-old daughter goes missing, Vietnam veteran Shug Barnes enlists a cadre of old friends and new acquaintances to track down the kidnappers. His newly formed posse, a unique mix of men and women on both sides of the law, go to great lengths to rescue the young girl—and still keep their own secrets intact. To do so, they will challenge a force seething with racial hatred, more insidious than Waco’s Koresh and just as lethal.

Gary V. Powell: This book reminds us that, beneath the surface of a bland, homogenous, white-collar American landscape lies a rich, blue-collar, black market underbelly. Bankers and politicians walk the streets in broad daylight, but hustlers and grifters ply the darkness. Yet, in that darkness, an old school code of honor is at play, a code of honor that feels solid and reassuring in these uncertain times.

Nancy McFarlane: A cast of the most unlikely characters come together in this action-packed crime thriller… colorful characters whose lives are intertwined in an unputdownable quest…

Susan Reichert: An excellent read…

David Burnsworth: Bob Strother really knows how to write a page turner! In Stories Not to Tell, he exposes the dark side of an already dark world. Shug Barnes is the cunning lead man in a tale that starts in Detroit, stops off in South Carolina, and ends up in a place we should all be afraid exists. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to Bob’s next.
