$500 Ain’t Trivial in My Book

You know there’s a winner every week in this contest, and this week it’s Naznin A. — congratulations Naznin for subitting the right answer to Question 4 in the Doing Max Vinyl Trivia Contest! The question was: Whose apartment do Ike and Tranny ransack, looking for the GPS? By the way, you can win in three ways with the Doing Max Vinyl Trivia contest:

  1. the weekly $5 prize
  2. you are reading Doing Max Vinyl for FREE!
  3. chances to win the grand prizes of $50 / $100 / $200 at the end of the contest

And anyway the answer, as anyone who read the serialized parts of the book for FREE at Venture Galleries will know, is Alison and Todd’s apartment.

Right, let’s move on to Question #5, to which you will find the answer in part 14, 15 or 16 at Venture Galleries. Question #5 is: Bob Olson, after being cheated, goes home and watches a nature program to relax. The nature program features what species of bird? To submit your answer, please send it to me at

In keeping with the rules of the contest, the week 5 winner will be chosen randomly among all the right answers correctly submitted by Sunday September 1st at midnight P.S.T. Are we already almost in September?

Now please don’t forget, even if you don’t win the $5 gift card, your right answer each week gains you an additional entry in the grand prize drawing at the end of the trivia contest. The prizes at the end are a $50 card, a $100 card and a $200 card. You could probably find uses for $200, right?


Frederick Lee Brooke launched the Annie Ogden Mystery Series in 2011 with Doing Max Vinyl and followed with Zombie Candy in 2012, a book that is neither about zombies nor sweets. The third mystery in the series, Collateral Damage, appeared in 2013. Saving Raine, the first book in Fred's entirely new series, The Drone Wars, appeared in December 2013, and was followed by its sequel, Inferno, in June 2014.

A resident of Switzerland, Fred has worked as a teacher, language school manager and school owner. He has three boys and two cats and recently had to learn how to operate both washing machine and dryer. He makes frequent trips back to his native Chicago.

When not writing or doing the washing, Fred can be found walking along the banks of the Rhine River, sitting in a local cafe, or visiting all the local pubs in search of his lost umbrella.
