Stern Talbot, P.I.—The Early Years: The Case of the Missing Body

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Some cases are better than others, not so rattling. Not so sleep-depriving. Not so insane.

But the evidence in a brand new missing persons case echoes the evidence in a three year old cold case that ended with a missing body.

Now it's time to figure things out and close them both.

The twists and turns of this case test the imagination and strain the emotions. More

About Harvey Stanbrough

Harvey Stanbrough is an award-winning writer and poet. He’s fond of saying he was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. After 21 years in the US Marine Corps, he managed to sneak up on a BA degree at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales in 1996. Because he is unable to do otherwise, he splits his writing personality among four personas: Gervasio Arrancado writes magic realism; Nicolas Z “Nick” Porter writes spare, descriptive, Hemingway-style fiction; and Eric Stringer writes the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic. Harvey writes whatever they leave to him. You can see their full bios at

Review by: Steve Ross on June 29, 2018 :
Here's a no-nonsense homicide detective's case from the perspective of the police.

It resembles TV detective shows of recent vintage but with a few extras. Since the story is in written form, we get into the psyches—emotion and intellect—of the detectives on the case. Also, we combine the cold case format with a recent story case, killing two birds with one stone, or is it solving their problems at one fell swoop--or is that at one swell foop?

This tale describes an incident in the earlier police career of Stern Talbot, now a private eye with his own series of adventure-detective tales penned by Harvey Stanbrough.
