Horrible murders shouldn’t happen here. Evil like that is reserved for the big cities, right? Wrong.

A powerful, south of the border, drug kingpin named Tito Ocotillo could be responsible. Tito’s biker gang, the Coyotes, are very capable of murdering their enemies and putting them on public display as a warning to others.
Could It Be Space Aliens? Or Ancient Native American Dark Rituals?
Some people believe that space aliens are dismembering people to study us. Tito Ocotillo is using an old, mysterious Native American woman called Jane to try and open up a portal to the underworld.

What would you do if God fell into your lap?
Jessy Ascher and her friends set up camp near Moonlight Rocks in the California desert to watch the Leonid meteor shower. After darkness falls, a stunningly bright meteor suddenly flashes across the sky blinding the friends to the approaching danger.
The meteorite blasts into their camp site knocking everyone unconscious but Jessy quickly regains her senses. Her friends however, cannot be roused. Instinctively she grabs the still smoking meteorite and stumbles downhill toward the jeep she arrived in, desperate to get help for her friends...
But, Jessy isn't alone in that rough, cactus-filled landscape... two dark figures who also saw the meteor flashing down to Earth are frantically searching the same area and they are ready to do anything... even murder to get their hands on a meteorite they could sell to the highest bidder.
And what about the meteorite? Others have been waiting for its arrival. Cultists, fanatical members of nearby religious or supernatural factions - some good, some evil - believe that the meteor heralds the birth of a new Messiah and they, too, are ready to do anything to gain control of the blessed rock.
Jessy wants help for her friends, others want the meteorite for their own end, but the Meteorite, it wants something too... Is this the dawn of a new spiritual age, or just a bunch of psychos raging in the desert?

Murder and Magic Book 4
Want to go for a ride in a classic car? Park by the ocean? Sounds nice huh?
Mona found the man and his car, a beautiful, old Ferrari, very attractive. Sure, she'd go for a ride with him to look at the ocean, the party was boring anyway. Maybe by the time they got back things would liven up a bit...
She felt the bag tighten around her neck, cutting off her air supply. This cannot be happening. She gasped and struggled, but it was no use. He was as strong as he was classically handsome, a real Hollywood leading man type. Everything went dark as she lost consciousness, her last thought was about the mistake she'd made threatening to tell Danny's wife...
Susan felt that someone was stalking her. She'd gotten several strange calls attempting to make appointments for private exercise and aerobics lessons. Dicky and the cops had wrecked her apartment and she needed to work to get a new place but she was afraid to take on an unknown client. What should she do?
"Get in the car or your pregnant friend is dead!" he said hoarsely. Susan must save Anne, but how?

Yurie Kiri speaks Japanese, English, French and has studied Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish and a smattering of other languages such as Korean and Russian along with binary and hexadecimal machine language. Why? Because if you really want to get to know someone, you need to speak their language no matter if they’re machine or human.
Yurie lived and worked in Asia for decades before recently coming to America. Yurie went on an extensive backroad journey all across the US and Canada. Yurie also sailed (single-handed) from Mexico to the Canadian border, retracing a well-traveled road journey by sea in a small, live-aboard sailboat.
Yurie has been traveling and gathering story ideas from Asia for the Game Series, which covers Japan and other Asian countries, and North America for the Murder and Mystery Series which covers the American Southwest.
And, yes, Yurie does not use pronouns (for a reason). For one thing, it keeps the reader guessing – is Yurie male, female, non-binary, or even a machine? No one really knows for sure…
