At the same time his is - like so many other authors - working on several other novel projects while simultaneously writing short stories, more plays, and living his life with his family.

My thanks to the author for providing a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
First of all, I love the cover art! Roske reminded me why I loved to read short stories. "Call of Duty" stayed with me after I read it, making my fingers itch to open up a copy of Alfred Hitchock Mystery Magazine, it just had that vibe. The paranormal drew it away, but Roske is in that caliber of authors that write mysteries and detective stories well. I also enjoyed "Pile Up," and "A Place for Everything." I was particularly impressed with "Duet" and Roske's range.
Although the stories require some editing, the mistakes do not detract from the stories. I am certain that Roske will only improve with time andI look forward to reading more from this author, especially a longer novel.
