"Get Smart" meets "Ghostbusters!"

Tracking Magic, a collection of short stories by Maria E. Schneider is due out soon in ebook form (Kindle, Nook, Sony, iPad, iTouch, iPhone, laptop, PC, netbook and so on)! As with Executive Lunch, please help the author choose the perfect cover!!!

The first Max Killian Investigation was published at The Town Drunk ( back in March 2007. Since then Max has taken on a few even more difficult cases. Tracking Magic includes the first case, Haunting Clues and four new tales of investigative genius. Or luck, as the case may be!

Five case files from Max Killian Investigations:

Haunting Clues - Max is hired to expel a ghost from a mansion. To deal with the dead, though, he must first uncover the secrets of those still alive.

Curses! - Some days you curse, some days the curse gets you.

Dearly Departed - Max investigates a graveyard, but when it comes up empty, it's his job to find the body-dead or alive.

Roadkill - Max can smell the dead long after they are gone. Of course, it's not too hard to smell the ones that just died, but it could prove to be more dangerous.

Privy to Secrets - Some secrets are worth dying for. The trick is to know which ones make life worth living.

Without further ado, here are the covers to choose from:
