Meter Parents, the newest in the Jack Meter Case Files  SF Mystery series, is now out and is available in Trade Paperback and ebook for Kindle and Nook.

Jack is suddenly stuck with babies. But are they really babies, or an expendable tool for someone else’s revenge?

MeterParentsWEBfsJack Meter’s hard-won peace is about to be shattered again. Two fugitives have descended on his apartment and are demanding help. They’re Phoenixes, a species that start as babies in the morning, age through the day and vanish after sunset, only to be reborn the next day.

Then there’s the Kayzar. The aliens want the Phoenixes back and are willing to kill anyone to recapture them, including Jack.

The Phoenixes’ story doesn’t ring true to Jack, but what’s a PI to do when his home is invaded, his friends feel sorry for the refugees, and he has a dead Kayzar stinking up his apartment?

The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.— G. K. Chesterton
