It Began with a Simple Accident, or was it an Attempted Murder?
A femme fatale. Her missing husband. A dead private detective. And a dangerous game of mistaken identity…
It all started when Jonas Watcher found a business card along with some keys – curious… some money – a really good thing… and a gun…
It’s the nineteen thirties and Jonas Watcher must solve the mystery of the dead PI if he wants to stay alive.
“The Case of the Running Bag” is the first novel of the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. It features a traditional P.I. dealing with extortion, kidnapping, and murder. Author Gene Poschman brings back the hard-boiled detective novel, featuring the romance and humor reminiscent of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

I am a native Californian who married my high school sweetheart. We were married 54 years until she passed away last December; why she put up with me is still a mystery. I loved her dearly and miss her every day.
I have always been an avid watcher of film noir, mysteries, and other detective crime fiction as well as science fiction and fantasy. I read quite a bit, which would probably surprise a number of my elementary school teachers. I would have been a better reader earlier if Dick and Jane were detectives, or at least, a wizard and witch.
Like a lot of writers I write because I need to. Also as a kid, I was such a liar. I didn’t lie about important stuff. I just made up stories. I was told the story of the boy who cried wolf constantly. At least five different versions. It doesn’t happen well for the kid in any of them.
I still make up stories, but because I put them in books; I am a novelist or author.
The Jonas Watcher series is rooted in the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. My style is a little lighter and laced with my own quirky sense of Humour.
I identify my genre as Adventures, some Detective, and some Spy.
