You’ve read its chapters in the newspaper. You’ve perused them online. Now you can have your own ebook version of the “Sonoma Squares Murder Mystery.”

The serial, produced by 16 local writers, is available online at both Amazon and Smashwords.

Fire up your Kindle, iPad or smart phone and read all about newspaper reporter Sandra Cordero and the serial killer who contacts her. Sandra, her best friend Abby and Sheriff’s Detective Zach Brown are all trying to figure out the strange clues the killer is providing via cell phone texts, including his first message: “I pray sic.”
