The Klondike Gold Rush An estimated 100,000 prospectors made their way to the Klondike region of the Yukon in north-western Canada between 1896 and 1899. The conditions were brutally harsh; frostbite, lost fingers and toes, and death. But there was a big payoff, for some. What has this to do with my books: absolutely nothing. But it has everything to do with... well, let's just keep that in the bag, for now.

Recent 5 Star Goodreads Review: I very much enjoyed Stuart Murray's action-packed novel and recommend it to all readers who enjoy an emotionally charged battle of wills in a powerful and chilling tale of suspense, drama, action and revenge which breaks the needle on the Richter scale of excellence.
A June, 2016 Excerpt...
Copyright © (2016) Stuart Murray. All Rights Reserved
The winds of change were blowing hard, intruding on a life that was exactly the same, and no longer familiar; as if a subtle shift in space and time had taken place, leaving her slightly disoriented and ill at ease.
These feelings had been with her long before she made the very first trip to Omaha to enlist the services of Mitchell, but on this particular evening they'd grown until she became acutely aware of just how unsettled everything had become.
And as she slipped into a cocktail dress that showed off her figure to perfection her mood declined to a new low while her level of distress reached an all time high.
“What are you doing here?” she asked her mirror image self. She’d thought the life she had was the one she wanted, and until her husband’s evolving infatuation with Yvonne Lindley it had been. To balance things out she mistakenly thought that she could waltz Mitchell in front of her husband, treat him with impunity and emerge unscathed.
But now, here alone in this massive house that had never really been a home everything had changed, and the future was suddenly a blank page with storm clouds gathering on the horizon.
The house was too quiet, and in the lingering silence created by her own introspection she became apprehensive. The realization no sooner dawning than a slight movement in the dark corridor beyond her room caught her eye. The house was rigged to detect intrusion and the alarm was silent. It didn’t matter, she was suddenly aware of a chill in the air, and the feeling of being watched.
Her eyes flashed toward the opening and the hallway beyond, all other thoughts forgotten. “Is someone there?” she asked, dreading there should be a reply.
On May 1, 2016 a completely re-edited version of Dangerous Perceptions: The Road To Nowhere was uploaded and republished on Amazon Kindle.
Happy to announce that Amazon finally activated the 'Look Inside' feature on Perfectly Played: A Peter Mitchell Story. It required 2 emails to get their attention after they exceeded their own time limit. The ability to view the first few chapters has been achieved.
The first week of February is the tentative release date for my new novel titled "Perfectly Played". If interested in receiving notification on the actual date of release, or for general inquires, please leave a note on the contact page.
a Peter Mitchell Story
Peter Mitchell is a PI without a single case. He’s also flat broke and late with a payment to the wrong kind of people. Their motivational speakers are coming for a visit, and with nothing to give them the morning is off to a rough start.
He has two choices, none appealing: Let them break every bone in his body before taking a cement shoe trip to the bottom of the river, or, take an express ride on the bullet train to the other side.
Sometimes the choice is easy. This was one of those times.
The next thing Mitchell knows he’s sipping champagne and mixing with San Francisco’s elite. Things get even better when a woman catering to the rich and powerful brings Mitchell in to consult on security issues. And right after that he’s aboard a luxury yacht sailing to an exotic destination.
He’d made the right choice. Would have done it earlier if he’d known, and no, he hadn’t entered the twilight zone, slipped into an alternate universe or traveled back or forward in time, his life had simply changed.
But there’s a catch, there would have to be, right? Something to put things back into balance. After all he’s not exactly been blessed by good fortune. It doesn’t take long for him to discover that the last thing the business needs is to be concerned about security, and that his own is suddenly very much in jeopardy.
Something’s going on, there’s a hidden agenda and he doesn’t have a clue what it is. All he knows is that he’d better figure it out fast.
Every writer hopes that the work they produce receives a good review, especially early on in the process when the first book has been edited over and over and is finally ready for sale. Positive feedback is not only an affirmation, but a boost to moral, a motivator, and an essential element in driving interest.
It may be difficult to imagine that a critical review could also be good, even in recognizing that it is impossible to appeal to all tastes all the time. But a critical review viewed constructively can prove invaluable, especially in revealing shortcomings or oversights that could, and perhaps should be addressed.
