A prequel short story to the Tiger’s Eye Mysteries…
When tiger shapeshifter and ex-rebel soldier Jack Shepherd learns about his uncle’s death, he fires up his Harley and heads across country to go home to Dead End, Florida. Along the way, a beautiful woman pulls him into a deadly mystery involving a missing Santa and a race to save two lives. When tiger shapeshifter and ex-rebel soldier Jack Shepherd learns about his uncle’s death, he fires up his Harley and heads across country to go home to Dead End, Florida. Along the way, a beautiful woman pulls him into a deadly mystery involving a missing Santa and a race to save two lives. Because it’s Jack, laughs fly as fast as the clues do.
Now that he’s on the case, Jack won’t be stopped, and he won’t give up, because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
[Short story of a little more than 10,000 words.]
Praise for the Tiger’s Eye Mysteries:
“First in a new series, it has wonderful characters, Day’s trademark wisecracky irreverent humor, and plenty of paranormal action. Quick, fun read. Looking forward to the next one.”
— Alpha Heroes
“Dead Eye is a magnetic mix of urban fantasy, paranormal, thriller and mystery. It’s part gritty, part grisly, part witty and entirely entertaining. Weird and complex characters, an unconventional setting, a smart and unpredictable plot add to Day’s energetic and playful voice. This story kills it. Next up in the series is Private Eye, available in February. No reader I know will be able to resist this follow-up featuring the new owner of Dead End Pawn and her grandmother the banshee. When Dead End is hit with a banshee kidnapping spree, Tess’ partner Jack gets his first case as a P.I. How fabulously offbeat!”

Jack was on his third cup of coffee, and down to nothing but crumbs and a single honey-covered biscuit on his plate, when the diner door slammed open and a teenaged boy rushed in, red-faced and panting.
“Vanessa, you’ve got to come right now. Somebody shot Santa Claus!”
Jack was halfway out of his seat before he remembered two important facts:
- This was none of his business, because he was done with crime-fighting, and,
- Santa Claus didn’t exist.
