Welcome to Mysteries to Die For. I am TG Wolff and am here with Jack, my piano player and editor.

Some episodes will be my own stories, others will be classics that helped shape the mystery genre we know today.

This is Episode 1: What a Lovely Corpse You Have.********SPONSOR: A Grifter's Song from Down & Out Books. Sam and Rachel may not be the kids they once were but what they've lost in youth, they made up for with experience. Grifters, they've carved out a life taking what they can without consideration for their marks. It seems to me a little thought might have saved them a whole lot of trouble. Now grifting isn't a choice, it's the only way to stay ahead of the mob. This bundle of novellas follows Sam and Rachel across the US as they jump from frying pan to fire.
