The award-winning Julius Katz mysteries have delighted thousands of mystery fans since first appearing on the pages of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in 2009, winning a Shamus, Derringer and Ellery Queen’s Readers Choice Award . ‘Julius Katz’ introduced readers to Boston’s most brilliant, eccentric and possibly laziest detective, Julius Katz, as well as his sidekick, Archie, a tiny marvel of whiz-bang computer technology with the heart and soul of a hard-boiled PI.

Now in Julius Katz and Archie’s first full-length mystery, the stakes have never been higher when a famous Boston mystery writer, Kenneth Kingston, tells Julius he wants to find out who’s planning to kill him. The problem is almost everyone in Kingston’s life has good reason to want to kill him, and this case soon plunges Julius and Archie deep into the world of murder and publishing.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Dave Zeltserman is one versatile writer and he gives the classic detective and sidekick format a great modern twist in JULIUS KATZ AND ARCHIE. Elegant and precise writing, a delightful detective, criminals whose pedigrees go back to the icons of noir, and even a miniature computer as Katz’s tie-tack sidekick. In the hands of a less capable writer, it wouldn’t work but Zeltserman pulls it off with aplomb. Good stuff.


The mystery and character development were so well written I could not put it down. As soon as I was finished I searched for more books from the author. I hope the next in the series comes out soon.


I’m a huge fan of Dave Zeltserman’s writing and his fabulous homage to Rex Stout. JULIUS KATZ AND ARCHIE is a well-plotted and charming novel that is not to be missed.
