COMING SOON – New Short Stories!

It’s been an exciting summer!

In July I published one of my favorite short storiesCuffed. It’s a true storyCuffed 07 copy about a frightening yet entertaining event that happened one night long ago when I worked the graveyard shift in a local pharmacy. That night the criminal was no match for me. If interested, the story is available here and here.

The pinnacle event of my summer, however, was the publication of my debut novel Lethal Medicine. It’s a thrilling tale of international Printintrigue, murder and deceit when my protagonist (Jon Masters) discovers that the investigational drug study he’s managing is a cleverly disguised scam. With the help of a trusted confidante, Jon reenters the world of covert ops and cyber intelligence to uncover an international conspiracy that redefines the term “designer drugs” as he fights to save his reputation and his life. It’s available here and here, and soon it will be available in paperback.

And the excitement continues! As the summer comes to a close and the Labor Day holiday weekend approaches, I have a special treat for you. I’ve gathered together an anthology of six extraordinary short stories authored by myself, plus four talented writer friends. These short stories are guaranteed to play with your mind as youUnforseeable_Consequences_SMASHWORDS navigate through plots that end in unforeseeable consequences.

In fact, since each story ends in some variation of a life altering and unexpected outcome, I’ve titled the collection Unforeseeable Consequences. It will be available by the weekend for your reading pleasure and it’s certain not to disappoint.

We’re doing the final tweaks at this very moment before pressing the publish button. I’ll send further notification later in the week as it releases. This will make for a great reading experience over the long holiday weekend and a proper close to the summer season.

I hope your summer was as exciting as mine and I look forward to a great fall as we head into the season of cooler temperatures. That’s when I’ll be heading back to my writing desk to concoct more stories about Murder, Mayhem and Medicine—and will continue blogging about the chemicals/poisons/drugs that I use as murder weapons in those plots.

About James J. Murray, Fiction Writer

With experience in both pharmaceutical manufacturing and clinical patient management, medications and their impact on one’s quality of life have been my expertise. My secret passion of murder and mayhem, however, is a whole other matter. I’ve always loved reading murder mysteries and thrillers, and longed to weave such tales of my own. Drawing on my clinical expertise as a pharmacist and my infatuation with the lethal effects of drugs, my tales of murder, mayhem and medicine will have you looking over your shoulder and suspicious of anything in your medicine cabinet.
