His romantic weekend in ruins, shy twenty-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat -- and matching socks. 
  The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort. How did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont? Perry turns for help from "tall, dark and hostile" former navy SEAL Nick Reno -- but is Reno all that he seems?
  (Wattpad and Smashwords have joined together to promote Mysteries and Thrillers this month -- you can find out more here: As one of the 127 participating authors, each day I'll be posting serialized chapters of one of my most popular standalone novels, The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks.
  **2017 update. Thank you for reading. The time has come to remove this free read Wattpad. However, you can still purchase the complete book through Amazon or any other online book-selling site. I will leave the first ten chapters (including the ending -- for those of you who decline to buy books) of the story up, so you know how it all turned out.

WOW! First line and shiz is already gonna go down. I had to comment this before reading the rest of the chapter because that first line is just amazing.
such a nyc and intresting story...feeling to read all chapters at once...very intresting...i hope remaining chapters are more intresting....

I like your way of adding dry humour that comforts the reader into continuing to read the story :). The second paragraph gives me hope that this book will be memorable. :).

Wonder why the man is dead? What happened to him? Why is he in the bathtub? All questions that raise the suspense. Nice work.
