Introducing... Chief of Detectives, Victor Verie

When Chief of Detectives Victor Verie suffers a cardiac "incident" in his local grocery, the first responder to the 911 call is second-year officer, Nicole Whitman.  Whitman discovers Verie was being stalked by a hooded figure who relieved him of his badge, cell phone, and service weapon.  A review of the store's security recordings proves Verie's life was spared when the thief was frightened off by the appearance of a fellow shopper.  The chief of police, worried that he might lost his best officer, seeks a bodyguard for Verie, and first responder Nicole Whitman volunteers for the job.

"A strong element of Allan Ansorge's crime fiction is the wry humor he injects into it.  Verie reads, dare I say, almost like a mash-up of 'The Big Sleep' and 'Three's Company.'  I found myself chuckling all the way through... VERIE entertaining."

-- Raymond Benson, author of The Black Stiletto novels

If you have ever started reading a book and quit after less than 25 pages because you know you could have written a better story than that.


If you have thought of a great story that you were sure people would want to read if only you could find someone to write it. You might be just right for the job.
