About the Author and the Creators of the Capital City Murders Series.

Troy Lambert is a full-time freelance writer, author, and publisher. Having written over two dozen mysteries and other novels, Troy is well-versed in story creation, and he knows what it takes to make a fictional story real!
Troy’s hobbies and pastimes (when he’s able to break away from the computer) include hiking into the mountains of Southwest Idaho, fishing in a fast-rushing stream, and going for a drive where his mind can work on creating that perfect twist to the book he’s currently writing.
A native of Idaho Falls, Idaho, Troy and his wife live in Meridian, Idaho.

Stuart Gustafson took early retirement in 2007 to spend more time traveling (he’s been to 55 countries and 155 cruise ports) and writing.

Stuart created the idea and the characters for the Capital City Murders Series but stepped away early in 2020 to focus on family and health. Those of us who continue the series thank Stuart for the idea, and for helping get the original idea off the ground.


Troy Lambert and Stuart Gustafson teamed up to bring the Capital City Murders series to life. Each of the fifty novelettes areĀ set in the capital city of every state in the United States of America!

And yes, a total of fifty states means a total of fifty novelettes. They are coming at you quickly, and every one includes a new mystery and shocking solutions. Keep up with the series on the books page and subscribe to our newsletter using the link below.
