Hollywood Blood: A Hollywood Alphabet Series Thriller

by M.Z. Kelly

LAPD Detective Kate Sexton and her canine partner, Bernie, return in this edge-of-your-seat thriller with laugh-out-loud humor. Hollywood Blood is the second book in the Hollywood Alphabet Series Thrillers.

If you think you’ve got problems, meet LAPD cop, Kate Sexton. She’s just been promoted to the department’s elite Robbery Homicide Division, along with her canine partner, Bernie, a first for the homicide unit. But things immediately go downhill when a famous singer’s manager is shot and killed during one of Kate’s mother’s psychic séances. While Kate tries to balance her troubled relationship with her mother and an ex-cop, things get even crazier when the killer strikes again . . . and again . . . and then targets those closest to the investigation.

As she tracks the killer, things turn even more bizarre when Kate learns the suspect in the homicides is the leader of a blood thirsty cult out for revenge. To make matters worse, Bernie’s sexual wanderlust is out of control, her best friend Natalie meddles in the case, and Kate’s boss thinks she’s leaking details about the murders to the press.

Hollywood Blood is a thrill ride, with even more sex, laughs, and twists & turns than the first book in the series, Hollywood Assassin. Other books in the Hollywood Alphabet Series Thrillers by MZ Kelly include: Hollywood Crazy and Hollywood Dirty. And coming soon, Hollywood Enemy!

All The Young Warriors (Mustafa and Adem 1)

by Anthony Neil Smith

From a double cop-killing on the frozen streets of Minnesota to the burning sands of Mogadishu, Somali pirates and a brutal civil war, All The Young Warriors is an epic thriller spanning continents and cultures. Murder, warfare, piracy, love, betrayal and revenge – this is a white-knuckle ride for fans of James Lee Burke (the Dave Robicheaux series) and Michael Connelly (the Harry Bosch series).

Winner of the 2012 Spinetingler Award for Best Novel: Rising Star

When two of the Twin Cities’ “Lost Boys” â?? young Somali men drafted to fight for terrorists back in the homeland â?? kill a pair of cops on his home turf, detective Ray Bleeker is left devastated. One of the dead cops was his girlfriend. The investigation grinds to a halt when he discovers that the young murderers have fled to Somalia to fight in the rebel army. He’s at his wits’ end until the father of one of the boys, an ex-gang leader called Mustafa, comes looking for answers. Bleeker and Mustafa form an uneasy alliance, teaming up to help bring the boys back home. But little do they know what Somalia has in store for them.

“a brilliant book, possibly the best novel of the year.” – Les Edgerton

“written with a sureness of hand and a depth of character that are impressive. A highly accomplished crime novel exposing an often unseen world.” – The Big Issue

All The Young Warriors will grip readers who enjoy the chance to slip into a foreign culture and also those who want a page-turning thriller” – Spinetingler Magazine

“a powerful story that is both riveting and meaningful” – Crime Fiction Lover

“this book is a classic in the making” – I Meant To Read That

All The Young Warriors is a pretty rare beast, a clever page-turner. It deserves to be a bestseller and has film adaptation stamped all over it.” – Loitering With Intent

“a courageous novel that raises a lot of pertinent questions” – Dead End Follies

“Smith writes with force and clarity” – The Chicago Tribune

“Smith’s version of Minnesota is no Lake Wobegon; the inhabitants are refreshingly made up entirely of the deranged, the damaged, and the doomed. If you can picture the intellectual and physical mayhem that might have resulted from a Jim Thompson and Harry Crews collaboration, you’d be on the right track. But Anthony Neil Smith is his own writer â?? and a very fine one, indeed.” – Booklist

Also by Anthony Neil Smith featuring Mustafa and Adem: Once A Warrior.

Death in Room Five (A Chief Inspector Littlejohn Mystery)

by George Bellairs

When a group from the small English town of Bolchester make an excursion to Cannes, little do they expect it to end so dramatically – with the disastrous murder of one of their party, the domineering Alderman William Dawson.

Suddenly the holidaymakers find themselves murder suspects.

But, with so many grudges borne against Dawson, it becomes impossible to work out who might have been responsible for his death.

Was the fact that he had been a traitor in the maquis – the French resistance – during the war a factor?

And was his death connected to the subsequent killing of the crooked barkeeper Sammy?

When Scotland Yard call in Chief Inspector Littlejohn in to investigate, rudely interrupting his holiday in the Riviera, he comes up against a trying, taxing and peculiar case.

‘Death In Room Five’ is a classic detective mystery by one of the masters of the genre.

‘Bellairs is up there with the greats of English crime fiction. Every fan of the genre should read him.’ – Robert Foster, best-selling author of ‘The Lunar Code’.

George Bellairs was the nom de plume of Harold Blundell (1902-1985), a crime writer and bank manager born in Heywood, near Rochdale, Lancashire, who settled in the Isle of Man on retirement. He wrote more than 50 books, most featuring the detective Inspector Littlejohn. He also wrote four novels under the alternative pseudonym Hilary Landon.

Grace quickly befriends Dylan, Rex’s nephew, and Dylan’s girlfriend, Sadie, who is a die-hard teen activist. Sadie spends her time leading protests against the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for animals or the flimsy law.

One day while out in the marshes of the Everglades, Grace and her friends rescue an abused–and endangered–Florida panther. She and Birdee spend time rehabilitating the animal. But when the panther runs off, Grace follows it to Uncle Bob’s, a large roadside zoo they all have been protesting. One that is illegally filled with a variety of endangered and exotic animals. Before she can rescue the panther, she and her friends are kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge.

Only this time, Grace is the prey.

During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace and her friends are offered one chance at survival, but only if they reach civilization before being caught. With a small head start and very little supplies, only time and skill stand between the hunter and the hunted. But out in the Everglades, there may be more dangers that Grace realizes.

Against all odds, Grace must make it out alive and win, or everything she holds dear could be lost.
