About the author:
Before retiring in late 2004 John A. Miller, Jr. had worked for more than forty years in the fields of computers and telecommunications at several major corporations and universities. However, he always had a desire to write, so armed with a new computer in 1991 he sat down and began writing his first novel, Pima, which was published as a paperback several years later. Even though that paperback is long out of print John has continued writing as a sideline, first with five more novels in the Pima series, and then with several other novels and short stories.

Because he had lived in southern Arizona for a total of nearly ten years, first while serving in the U.S. Army in the mid-1960s and later while working for a Government contractor and then a private corporation, John decided to set his Pima series of novels in an area he knew well, the mountains and deserts of Arizona. Later short stories and novels are set in other locales.

Now with the advantages of electronic publishing John has decided to make his books available in those formats.

The Fish Hatchery Murders
 

Authored by John A. Miller Jr.

Eighteen and now legally adults, Mary Ann Markham and best friend, Jennifer Martin, offer to help a high school friend find out who murdered her boyfriend at a nearby trout nursery. However, instead of quickly identifying the killer the girls are hounded by additional bodies that may or may not be victims of the same murderer. A surprise addition to their team from a local homeless shelter adds her expertise, and Mary Ann's adoptive parents, Art and Marsha Parker, get dragged into the investigation as usual. The girls get trapped in an abandoned warehouse, nearly get run over by a train, and are imprisoned in a walk-in refrigerator before finally stumbling on the solution, which almost results in their names being added to the growing list of corpses.
