The 918 FILES:


A case so strange, nobody believed it. A man was found lying in the street with bruises and scratches all over his body.

In 1918, at 6:10 pm, Harry ran and ran, thinking he could escape the mess that he was sucked into. He had lost all hope when finally, he saw the light but little did he know that he wasn’t just in the wrong place but also the wrong era.


Charles believed him when nobody else did. Charles Gwillam, and his private detective agency, “Zona Investigations”, was always one to attract the unusual. 

Intense drama, mysterious details combined with doubtful eyes; will anyone believe Harry? Will he be able to prove his innocence, or will he end up choosing silence over proving himself?


The 918 FILES:

Short Cases

When Charles Gwillam walked away from law enforcement and turned in his Phoenix Police badge, he started his own private investigation business called Zona Investigations. Over the years, he worked odd or unusual unsolvable cases and he placed them into what he called "the 918 files." This book contains 7 of those cases and each one is written in police report format.

The 918 FILES:


Puzzled by the gruesome killing of his livestock, a rancher in northern Arizona struggles to find answers as to what is happening on his property. Was his neighbor behind the killings motivated by a recent dispute? Could it possibly be a rogue predator such as a mountain lion or bear? Or maybe it was something else. Something that some believe was just a myth no matter how many stories are told. When he can’t get answers from anyone, he turns to a private investigator for help.

Charles knew this had the making of another case for the "918 files", which always seemed to find him, but the lure of the unusual was enough motivation to pack his gear and head up north to help find answers.

A strange bigfoot like creature, a perplexing mystery that baffles the community and a question that no one can seem to answer; who or what is killing Kaminsky’s livestock?
