Gun Crazy Volume 1 – Jim Nash Short Story Collection #1, available at all of the platforms on the sidebar at the right, includes the following short stories in the Twisted Sisters series:
Detective Jim Nash has a problem. He has a murder victim in an alley and a dead woman in his bed. His own homicide division wants to charge him with murder. To say he’s got serious commitment problems would be an understatement. He’s on the lookout for twins, but he doesn’t want to date them. He wants to know who murdered them. First in the Twisted Sisters series.
Twisted Sisters 2 : Sleeping with a .45 – Detective Nash still has a couple of problems. He doesn’t know who killed the woman found dead in his bed. As if that wasn’t enough, someone is trying to kill him, and the killer’s methods aren’t very inventive. In fact, they’re pretty old-fashioned. His boss says he’s too close to both crimes and won’t permit him to investigate. The women in his life fare only a little better. Lucy and Zelda narrowly escape an assassination attempt. Second in the Twisted Sisters series.
Twisted Sisters 3 : Marina Mystery – A dead body introduces Detective Jim Nash to Coroner Allie Sands. Despite warnings from just about every woman working in the same building with her, Allie throws caution to the winds while helping Jim solve a murder. If you have read Twisted Sisters One and Two and are wondering how Jim and Allie met, this short story explains it all. Third in the Twisted Sisters series.
Included in Gun Crazy #1 are three shorts for the beginning of the Jim Nash Adventures series:
Pirate Cay – Jim Nash is headed for a long-awaited vacation in the Florida Keys when he checks his messages and discovers that an old flame needs his help.

No Way Out – Frank Ross is riding hard and putting a lot of towns in his rear view mirror as fast as he can. Here are four of them all in one place.
Dreams Die Fast – Frank Ross spent the winter on the Baja riding his motorcycle under sunshine and blue skies. Now it’s spring and he’s headed home, but bad luck encountered in a casino parking lot has left him stuck waiting for parts in a small, isolated town on the west side of the Salton Sea just 70 miles north of the Mexican border. With nothing to do but kill time, Frank accepts an invitation for a home-cooked meal. Before he knows it, he’s knee-deep in cartel drugs with a woman itching to pull the trigger on the gun she has pointed at his back.
Dreams Die Hard – Frank Ross is heading towards the anonymity of the bright lights and big city in an attempt to make good his escape from cartel sicarios. He’s got a reformed junkie riding bitch on the back of his motorcycle. Someone is throwing Molotov cocktails at them—and Frank doesn’t even drink. When his ride ends in the parking lot of a strip club, the seedy edge of the city finally catches up, forcing Frank to dig deep within to triumph over drugs, greed, arson and murder.
Dreams Never Die – Frank Ross has had his fill of the big city and bright lights. On his way to the Colorado, he catches sight of a diner in a small high-desert town he’s passing through. His decision to stop in for pie and coffee is rewarded when the friendly waitress tells him about the job posting next door. He fills out an application for a part-time job in the old-school bike shop, and his life is forever changed when he accepts.
Midnight at the Oasis – Frank Ross is headed down Mexico way, but first he must escape the high desert and the clutches of a sweet-talking, nimble little thing that has spun her web and led him down the road to good intentions gone bad. Following a trial by fire, Frank manages to get back on the road, but not before narrowly escaping a damsel in much distress when he refuses to take her along for the ride. Some adult content.
