The Star Rooks Stories

Painting the Roses RedThe Devil Behind the Leaves
These are two novelettes that my first wife (Kathleen Sky) and I wrote in the early 1980s. They're set in the same universe Kathleen created for her Laser Books BIRTHRIGHT and ICE PRISON, but these characters and stories are joint creations of us both.

The stories were originally published in magazines that had extremely limited circulations, and as a result have remained "undiscovered" for several decades. They concern a family of interstellar swindlers, Chandra and Jad diMedici, and a detective trying to pin them down. His job won't be easy, though, because the diMedicis have very twisted and ingenious imaginations.
