In a sprawling urban landscape where magic is as common as technology, Zack Monday is a hard-working private detective, street-smart, resourceful, and clever. When a dead man walks into his office to solve the mystery of his own murder, will our hero be able to track down the hard truths that no one wants found? Along the way Zack must confront thugs, corrupt cops, ghosts, undead mobsters, angels, devils, and his ex-wife. But he won't have to do it alone; he'll get help from his partner – a half-goblin bruiser with a secret, and a slacker street-warlock whose involvement in the case is a bit of a mystery in and of itself.
Some people think being a private detective is all about following around people who are busy cheating on their significant others. Zack Monday is not that kind of private detective. He’s the kind of man that doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty, his body beaten up, or being involved in magic that’s not exactly safe – as long as he solves the case in the end. It’s this dedication to his job that makes him the perfect private detective to solve his dead client’s murder case.
Zack finds himself in deep as the pieces of the case start to unfold. He has to face old enemies, risk breaking hard sought truces, and test the loyalty of his closest friends. In a world where magic and mystical creatures are as common as technology and humans, it can be difficult to tell who’s right and who’s wrong, who’s good and who’s bad. And difficult to know who, exactly, Zack is working for as the case brings him to some of the darkest places he has ever been.
In Monday and the Murdered Man, Andrew Kirschbaum has woven a web of deceit, double dealing and mystery that keeps the reader guessing all the way through. He has created a world where underground battles are fought between creatures much more powerful than humans and where the lines of right and wrong are often blurred. The balance of these things directly affects the safety of humanity. It’s a good thing there are men like Zack Monday willing to put their lives on the line to make sure that balance is maintained.

Aspiring actor Jordan Patrick is rapidly realizing the world has no use for another theatre student. Desperate to prove his talents have value, he agrees to work for Dr. Foster, a psychologist who secretly hires performers to infiltrate the everyday lives of his patients, and then stage situations which advance their therapy. Once they're in, Foster's players trick his clients into situations designed to make them confront their issues.
This part-time job becomes Jordan's toughest role yet as he's assigned to follow an eccentric patient named Julie, lie his way into her life, and help Foster rebuild her trust in men.
Some people, no matter how big their problems are, are afraid to see a psychologist. On Wilder Campus, they should be. On the surface, Dr. Foster’s theories are sound. Why spend years trying to get resistant patients to change when there’s a faster way to get them to help themselves; and get off the therapist’s couch in weeks or months instead of years. All it takes is a few well planned interventions to help them face their problem and move forward. They have no idea these actors have infiltrated their lives simply to facilitate change, so no one gets hurt. When the patients have made significant enough improvements, the actors simply fade into the night. No harm done. Right?
But what happens when someone makes it too personal? When the lines between acting and feeling become blurred. What happens when no one knows who to trust anymore?
In Head Games, Kevin Alex Baker weaves a web of intricate lies, plot twists, and humor so well, the reader gets caught up and doesn’t want the book to end. But it has to so you can find out what’s really going on. You’ll read every page eagerly as a professor’s head games turn a college campus into a nest of deceit, love and murder. Not necessarily in that order. This review asks a lot of questions and so will you as you turn the pages, looking for that key clue that will make everything make sense.
