Is Anybody’s Daughter Ever Safe?

Based on the real-life horrors faced by thousands of girls, award-winning author Pamela Samuels Young takes readers deep inside the disturbing world of child sex trafficking in a fast-paced thriller that educates as much as it entertains.

Thirteen-year-old Brianna Walker is ecstatic. She’s about to sneak off to meet her first real boyfriendâ??a boyfriend she met on Facebook. But Brianna is in for a horrifying surprise because her boyfriend doesn’t exist. Instead, Brianna unwittingly becomes the captive of a ring of drug dealers- turned-human traffickers who prey on lonely girls from dysfunctional homes. But they’ve made a big mistake in targeting Brianna because she doesn’t meet either of those criteria.

Brianna’s Uncle Dre, a man with his own criminal past, is determined to find the niece who is more like a daughter to him. Rather than sit back and rely on police to bring Brianna home, Dre scours the dark corners of Los Angeles looking for her. He is stunned to learn that the trafficking of children isn’t just happening in other countries. It’s occurring at epidemic levels right in his own backyard.

Dre is not alone in his desperate search. Loretha Johnson knows this world well. A social worker who previously lived “the life,” Loretha now dedicates her time to saving as many young girls as she can find. She turns out to be an invaluable resource for Dre, who ultimately gets a lead on The Shepherd, a mastermind in the trafficking world whose every move is fueled by ego and greed. Dre vows to bring his reign of terror to an end.

While Brianna makes a futile effort to thwart her captors, Dre is getting closer and closer to finding her. The woman he loves, attorney Angela Evans, knows the dangers faced by sexually exploited children because she represents them in juvenile court. Angela lends her moral support and, eventually, an important clue to Brianna’s whereabouts.

As he races against the clock, Dre ultimately comes up with a daring planâ??one that puts many lives in danger, including his own. But will he find Brianna before it’s too late?



The Big Bend

by Gary Showalter

The day begins like any other: Terry Rankin, sole proprietor of Rankin Personal Security Services in Orlando, Florida, accepts a private meeting with a potential client. Sheila Adamson is looking for a bodyguard to protect her from her abusive husband, but Rankin refuses to take the job until she begins divorce proceedings. Moments later, Mrs. Adamson is dead and Rankin is buried beneath the rubble of his house, knocked flat by a car bomb planted in the dead woman’s Jaguar. When he’s questioned by the local police, Rankin learns that Adamson’s attorney has also turned up dead, his Cadillac riddled with bullets. Suspecting there is more to these murders than a domestic dispute, he teams up with Orlando cop Cathy Diamond for a thrillingâ??and treacherousâ??adventure that will lead them deep into the heart of the Everglades and hot on the trail of a dangerous criminal. In Rankin’s sardonic bodyguard-turned-investigator, Gary Showalter has created a new hero for fans of hardboiled mysteries.



City of Beads: Tubby Dubonnet Series #2 (A Hard-Boiled but Humorous New Orleans Mystery) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series)

by Tony Dunbar

The SECOND deliciously sneaky mystery in Anthony- and Edgar-nominated Tony Dunbar’s Tubby Dubonnet series.

Tony Dunbar is the rare author able to make you laugh and shake in your shoes at the same time.

New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet is bored. He wants to bill enough hours to pay his alimony and keep his daughter in college, with enough left over for an occasional drink and a good meal, but he longs for something different and exciting.

Sure, researching licensing law for the new casino will keep trout meunière on the table, but what could be more tedious? (Unless, of course, the client turns out to be connected.) Meanwhile, there’s the estate of an old friend who controls some dock leases on the wharf. And he agrees to help his daughter’s environmental group stop illegal dumping in the river.

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way-the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

Suddenly Tubby IS doing something different and exciting â?? he’s running for his life!

Excerpt:

Not far from Mike’s, on a little side street, the Thompsons were having a family barbecue. They had the TV on the front porch tuned in to the Saints game. The home team was playing arch rival Atlanta, which always got the fans keyed up to an emotional high. Thomas and Kip Thompson were outside watching the game and keeping a grill lit in the tiny front yard, which was separated from the sidewalk by a low iron picket fence. The day was special because they were celebrating Thomas’s recruitment to play baseball for the University of Southwestern Louisiana. The recruiter had promised he was going to be offered a scholarship.

They had smoked sausage and hamburgers fired up on the grill and an ice chest full of Old Milwaukee beer and Cokes. Their aunt was inside making her gumbo, soupy green and full of chicken, sausage, garlic, okra, and onions. It smelled so rich and fine that the old men in the neighborhood were starting to pass by to say hello. Their sister Tania, whose house this was, had a half-gallon bottle of Canadian Club and some ice in the living room for anybody who dropped in.

“Hurry up, Auntie,” Kip called. “We’re dying of hunger.”

“Don’t rush me,” came a deep voice from inside. “It takes a long time to make things just right.”

“You better get you one of these before they’re all gone.” Kip waved his beer can at his younger brother.

“Naw, you can do all the drinking for me,” Thomas said. He was in training and so high on the possibilities stretching out before him that Kip, his beer, and even Kip’s shiny Cadillac taxi parked by the curb held no temptations at all.

Kip drove a cab for a living. That was his story, and that’s what Thomas believed.

It was halftime. All the guests were inside sampling the gumbo and mixing drinks from the big bottle. Tania poured some potato chips into a plastic bowl to carry outside to her brothers.

A nothing-special sky-blue car, maybe an old Ford Galaxie, drove slowly past the house. Kip looked toward it, then jerked around to look at his brother.

“Thomas!” he yelled.

Anything else he planned to say got lost in the noise of an automatic pistol firing. Errant lead pellets broke the front windows of the house and sent the old men and women jumping for the floor, splashing gumbo and sweet cocktails over the walls and each other. But several found their target and perforated Kip’s chest and face, knocking him backward onto the porch and into his sister’s arms. She threw the potato chips into the front yard and fell on top of him. Thomas took a bullet in the knee.

The nothing-special car didn’t even speed up. It just made the corner and rolled on.

First there were the wails of the women, then the sirens came.

“I really really like this series…..not my usual reading, as I normally read paranormal romance/HEA stories… work is a refreshing break for me of my usual reading material. Definitely not for the faint of heart—gory and violence is graphically described, possibly giving you not-so-nice dreams. This is a great deal for all the books included.”

More Praise for the Darc Murders Collections…

“WOW, just WOW! I don’t think I’ve ever come across such a gruesome series of crime scenes! Further knowing each of the scenes were booby trapped, had me cringing and then to read the full spectre of the carnage, left me in equal parts awe and queasiness of the macabre

imaginings of the writers! They pulled out the big guns! There was gore galore! Luckily, I like that in a thriller, it makes the suspense that much higher and the take down of the bad guy that much more satisfying.

What I didn’t expect was to be so enchanted by the characters. I loved the eclectic mix, from the brilliant but emotionally challenged Detective with Aspergers to his laid back empathetic partner plus the razor sharp mind of the child psychologist consultant and the adorable and brave sole survivor, little Janey. All these nuances and traits give a rich tapestry to the book and endear you to the clever writing of… Ben.”

Amazon Reviewer

“I definitely recommend the Darc Murders Collection. The character development is phenomenal, story development is superb– I thoroughly enjoyed reading both 9th Circle and 7th Sin; the story telling entwined with the characteristics of Darc’s aspergers is incredibly entertaining. Not for the faint of heart, lots of gore and suspense, great mysteryseries.”

The Mask of Anonymity: A Story of the American West

by Preston Malone

“This novel claims not only a spot on my book shelf, but an eternal one within my heart.” Jennifer Allen “Spegelbot”, Goodreads Reviewer

“I was just short of riveted … I think Mr. Malone has quite a future.” Ethan A. Winning, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
 
Controversial and groundbreaking. Preston Malone’s beautifully written novel paints the American West with a dark brush – far more violent and depraved than commonly believed.  The view held by most has been distorted by historical misconceptions and popular myths such as the “pioneer spirit” which Malone contends was cover for people fleeing west to avoid the law.

Come along on this fast-paced journey through the authentic Western United States of the 1880’s where the line between justice and vengeance blur as a secretive gunman faces evil threatening his clients.  Although the storyline is highly creative and entertaining, it is the undertones of this book that provide a most powerful literary punch. (Warning: contains graphic violence and sex)



The L Murders (Ted James Mysteries)

by G. R. Henderson

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be a Private Eye in Seattle in the 1980’s? Well, it wasn’t quite the same as when Sam Spade was practicing his craft in an earlier era. In this first installment of the Ted James Mystery series, lesbian women are being murdered by someone every few weeks and the Seattle Police seem powerless to find the killer.

Ted is hired by Nicole, the latest victim’s lover, to solve the mystery surrounding her roommate’s death and soon finds himself a target as well. Though he has always prided himself on his detached professionalism in his many years as a private investigator, he eventually allows himself to fall into a relationship with his client who just so happens to be his primary suspect, has openly stated that she “prefers women”, and prefers sex with someone who has a more stylish wardrobe and modern musical tastes. Will Ted survive this professional and personal ordeal and solve the mystery of who killed these lovely women or will his final chapter be written shortly after his first?

Come in from the Seattle rain, light up a cigarette and grab a cheap copy of â??The L Murders’ and find out for yourself. You won’t even need a trenchcoat and a wide brimmed hat to enjoy it



Beastie Stories (Rude Fiction)

by Ken Shakin

Cult writer Ken Shakin offers a collection of rude fiction about love and hate between the species. These are bedtime stories for the grownup beast, full of beings from another world, our own, one where the creatures talk and the civilized devour their neighbors. Five shorts and a beastie novella: How To Tame A Wild Animal, a murder mystery about wine, women, and castration.
See More Beastie Stories for the second book in the series.

From the author:The five stories all deal loosely with the notion of what it is to be the human beast, but in that respect, hard to categorize for the bookshelf. Man, Woman and Beast could be considered a horror story minus the horror. Cock and Pussy seems like something Beatrix Potter would have written for Playboy. The Man With Two Heads could fall under weird fiction. Survival of the Biggest is a true story about rats put to the test. Shelter is about cats and the ladies who love them. And finally How To Tame A Wild Animal is a perversely satirical take on the murder mystery. A bit more wine, women and gelding than you’ll find in the usual who-done-it. More like, who-cut-it-off*. Altogether 34,000 words. Not recommended for people who fear snakes.*In researching the material I was surprised to find out that castration and gender reassignment share a painful history. Though castration is generally thought of as merely the removal of the testicles, amputating penises, if only with a pair of scissors, is a practice dating from ancient times. Quite the trend in capital punishment, and long before South American women instituted it as a fitting revenge for adultery. 



The Blogger’s Regret (Canton County Chronicles Mysteries)

by C.M. Carleton

CONTAINS BONUS MATERIAL! INCLUDES CHAPTER 1 OF NEW MYSTERY NOVEL, ELECTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES!

When assistant prosecutor Kit Babcock gets called to Judge Bellamy’s office, she’s more than a little concerned and surprised to find her boss, Canton County Commonwealth Attorney John Stivers, standing next to the judge’s desk and looking rather irked.

Then Judge Bellamy points to his computer screen.

Kit reads a horrible article about herself, written by Ed Frame, a former prosecutor from another part of the state who now runs his own blog. Frame, who has a very personal grudge against the Attorney Grievance Commission where Kit used to work, knows that Kit is involved in a write-in campaign for Canton Circuit Court Clerk, and the article is quite obviously meant to tarnish Kit’s good name and prevent her election.

And what Frame has written about Kit is a complete lie.

Although Kit actually has nothing to do with the write-in campaign and wants no part of it, she knows she can’t let Frame’s libel of her go unchallenged. Lloyd Peters, an attorney against whom Kit often practiced attorney disciplinary cases, agrees to represent Kit and demand Frame put up a retraction of his libelous statements. But Frame refuses.

Lloyd urges Kit to sue Frame for defamation, but Kit is reluctant to do so. Although she’d like the rumors about her to stop, what she really wants to know is who spread them to Frame in the first instance.

This is the third short story (approx. 6200 words) in the Canton County Chronicles Mysteries Series by C.M. Carleton.

WARNING: Contains some language which some people may find offensive.

BONUS MATERIAL!

Contains Chapter 1 from ELECTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES, a Canton County Chronicles Mystery, the first full-length novel in the series (approximately 69,000 words), now available.

DEADLY TREATMENT

by David McLeod

How does a man, living on borrowed time, correct nearly a century of suppression, threats, litigation, treachery, and murder all having one sole aim: to ensure conventional medicine remains an extremely lucrative business?

Anthony Cain’s cancer will kill him soon; he knows it and so does Elwood, the man contracted to find and bring him back â?? dead or alive. But before he dies, Cain is desperate to put an end to the unforgivable wrongs of the corporation he works for.

Across town, while it’s true young Joshua Costello is no little angel; and it’s also true he’s given his mother, Erin, a fair share of problems recently; she knows her son is not just another runaway â?? despite what the LAPD think. She’s sure there’s something more sinister involved; and she’s also sure there’s only one man who can help to find him â?? Michael Malone.

In a cleverly contrived plot, the reader meets some memorable characters, learns about the dark history of the suppression of alternative medicine’s therapies, all while being led through a number of interwoven kidnap situations that bring us up to date with Michael Malone and his associates we first met in the author’s earlier book, “Christ Clone”.

Roadside Ripping: Creepy Scary Story

by Michael Hunter

â?¦ This lady was completely off her rocker or really onto something. The deal she was offering sounded more like being some type of distorted indentured servant instead of the guise of queenly statehood she was hiding behind. Then again, the idea of dying wasn’t exactly an attractive one either and if she played it right it could be just as good as she was trying to make it seem, if not better. There had to be some kind of work around for not only her, but her family tooâ?¦.

Roadside attractions are one of America’s favorite pastimes. Driving down the highway and all of a sudden you find yourself coming up on the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine, of course you’re going to stop. Not all attractions are as quaint though. There’s a darker, more sinister side to the American back roads. Things the common man isn’t supposed to and especially not prepared to see. One of those has traveled all the way from Whitechapel and taken up residence in America’s backwoods. What mischief could one of England’s greatest serial killers have gotten up to while here? Better yet, what are his descendants doing all these years later?

Welcome to the New United States.

On the heels of the most violent mass shooting in history, The Constitution has been rewritten and the Second Amendment has been repealed.

It’s a dangerous land, where criminals prey on victims in broad daylight, and ordinary citizens are left disarmed and defenseless — ordinary citizens like Jack Devers.

A former military man and a single father, Jack vows to break free and join the resistance in its fight to restore America to the land of the free.

But is he too late?

GUNLAND: Disarmed & Defenseless (A Right to Bear Arms Novel) paints the most frightening future vision since 1984.
