Book Description


Private Detective Frank Johnson tackles cases that baffle the police, often risking his life, while battling his own demons.

Joel R. Dennstedt for Readers’ Favorite says Johnson is “harking back to a kind of Sherlock Holmes but updated to the modern era – performing in a series of suspenseful vignettes.”

Sample Chapter

The next day, (Private Detective Frank) Johnson walked to his front door on the way to lunch with Inspector Bob Nelson.

He opened the door and was met by a man who pushed him back into his home and drew a handgun.

The man wore dark pants and a black coat. He looked like the boy next door, clean shaven, a very handsome man.

But that handsome man was pointing a gun at Johnson.

“You’ve stuck your nose into something you shouldn’t have,” the man said. “You won’t again.”

The man slowly pulled the trigger.

Johnson closed his eyes, waiting to die.

Author Profile

William Allan

William Allan

Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, William Allan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from McMaster University and a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Carleton University’s School of Journalism. He moved west and started a career with newspapers that lasted nearly 30 years. Most of that time was spent at The Leader-Post, the daily newspaper in Regina, Saskatchewan. He retired in 2008 and lives with the love of his life Abby Ulmer and their cat Toby in Regina. In 2016, William wrote and self published two books: Four Murders in a Small Town, a short fictional crime story, and How to Self Publish Inexpensive Books and Ebooks, which he wrote after his trial and error ordeal getting his first book printed and sold. He wanted to help first-time authors avoid that and help them choose a publisher and sell their books. He also researched the many publishing options and the printers and publishers in order to expand his second book beyond just his own experience. After a year off to promote and sell those books, William self published Justice Preserved, a collection of 12 fictional crime stories, in early 2018. Will William write and publish any more books? “Living on a fixed income, it would be a challenge to publish another book,” he said recently William’s book publishing future is unclear.
