Beth in a Box
I loved the relationship between Stone and his girlfriend, Alisha, who also happens to be Angel’s defence attorney. The dynamics of them being on opposing sides added some extra tension to the story. Read more here
The Herniman House
I became really invested in the characters journeys, the good and the bad. Normally I’d prefer a bit more of a whodunnit, but the way the story unfolded meant that although you could see hw the story may pan out, you were still left guessing about who and how everyone interlinked throughout the book. Lots of little twists and turns mean things never get dull. Read more here
Linda Strong Book Reviews
This is a fast-paced, action-packed crime thriller. Although third in a series, this one is easily read as a stand alone. As always, I recommend starting with the very first book as Stone and Sharpe are fantastic characters. Read more here
Ginger Book Geek
In short I loved reading ‘Tom Stone: Day Of The Dead’ and I would definitely recommend this series to other readers. I can’t wait to read what comes next from these two authors and here’s hoping that we don’t have too long to wait. In the meantime I will be buying the previous two books in the series and reading them just as soon as I can. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a well deserved 5* out of 5*. Read more here
Joanna Larum’s Reviews
The characters are believable ( and I loved his portrayal of Tom Stone, a cop who is divorced but without all the drama you often find in crime books) and the situations are easy to see in your head as you read them. I felt as though a movie was playing and all I had to do was watch! Read more here

Day of the Dead (Detective Tom Stone #3) by Don Simkovich & Lon Casler Bixby
Available from AMAZON
DOUBLE-CROSS, REVENGE, AND MURDER. IT’S JUST ANOTHER HALLOWEEN IN LA.
UNTIL DETECTIVE TOM STONE TAKES ACTION.
Multiple murders with one grisly connection have Detectives Tom Stone and Jake Sharpe pursuing every lead. Their main suspect, Anthony Angelino, fresh out of prison, dreams of building a new empire, but his past quickly catches up to him. Once again he is on the run from the police and the drug cartel that tried to ruin him.
The head of the cartel, Frank DeVito, tails Stone hoping the Detective’s investigation will flush out Angelino. Then he can exact his revenge and claim what he says Angelino has stolen – a large shipment of pure cocaine.
Angelino’s girlfriend, Sara, pleads for him to escape the deadly lifestyle. As the body count rises, Stone confronts the challenges in his relationship with Alisha Davidson, Angelino’s defense attorney.
Halloween dramatically twists into Day of the Dead celebrations as cocaine’s promised riches weave a tale of bloody betrayal, shattered friendships and loves both lost – and won.
You can read my review here
Don returned to his love for writing fiction after years of writing and narrating a radio spot series, marketing copy, and handling the pressures of a wild and crazy family life.
Frequent calls to the local Sheriff’s office, plus the intensity of handling teen alcoholism and teen pregnancy pressed stories from his mind like Earth’s weighty layers turn shale into harvestable fuel.
Well, you get the picture.
Don has fine-tuned his craft writing romance to crime fiction and the recent Tom Stone detective stories.
He lives at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains with his family, two dogs, and anyone else who happens to drop by and live for a spell.
