Unreliable: A novel of suspense

by Molleen Zwiker

Then I said, “Okay, but what do I do with the body?”

That old family joke. Said hundreds of times by one or another of us. Just a flippant, smart-assed remark. A quick comeback. Clever. Witty. Off-handed. Predictable and therefore comfortable. Comforting. The signal of the end of a rant. “God, I could’ve just killed her.”

Or him, as the case may be.

Or him.

Then the comeback, perfectly timed. Two beats, and the other would say, “But what would you do with the body?”

Only this time, no one laughed.

Felipe becomes torn between duty and desire, but Dahlia’s past makes them natural enemies. Can they overcome their differences in time to face the greater dangerĂ¢?¦ or will a sinister presence consume them all?

Detached: Book 1 of the Fleischer Series

by Wendi Starusnak

I’m Emily Ruth Fleischer and this book written by me is the only one of its kind. I can never let anyone know the horrible things that my father did or the secrets that my family had kept hidden for years. If anyone ever found out then that would mean they would also know what I did. I’m not even sure if I have fully come to terms with all of that yet myself. But I had to get it all out of my head and write it somewhere. So here it is: the worst of what happened in my life (hopefully) and the terrible secrets that I found out in the year 1976.
