Pep! by Michael Johnston

Did Butler Do It? by Nadine Lalonde
An eclectic set of jurors with only circumstantial evidence to consider. A gun, balaclavas, a robbery gone bad and missing money. Who’s right and who’s wrong? What is circumstantial evidence anyway? Can the jurors agree or will it be a hung jury? 

Beneath the Matala Moon by Cameron Johnston
Three young guys take off for the Greek islands in 1974.
