I’ve added two more short stories under the Tales Link above — these are a couple of my favorite short stories in my Rheinhart & Ritter series.

The idea behind Rheinhart & Ritter came from my day job. Like many businesses, the company I work for hires consultants to come in and provide support or ideas or strategy and then ride off into the sunset to their next job. And I have to say, they often made no appreciable difference to the way the company operated or to its bottom line or its quarterly results.

If I sound jaded, well…

But what if there was a consulting company that really did make a difference? Well, that consulting firm would have to be supernatural, because none of the mundane firms ever did.

Thus was born Rheinhart & Ritter, a consultancy with intriguing employees who could handle the most interesting problems. Like, say, that most pesky of coworkers, the lunch thief. Or a hapless salesperson who just can’t seem to get it together.

Please enjoy The Lunch Thief and Comitatus, Incorporated, and let me know what you think.
