Revenge Of The CEO: White Collar Crime Financial Thriller

by Peter Ralph

What would you do if you were framed and sentenced to twenty years in an Asian prison?

Would it make any difference if the heinous crimes that you’d gotten away with carried far longer sentences?

Would knowing that your actions led directly to the suicide of your financial controller prick your conscience?

Blind hate kept Douglas Aspine alive in Changi Prison. He had no conscience or compassion for those he had hurt, only the lust for revenge. Would this evil man succeed in bringing down those who had framed him?

Mystery: Angles and Demons: (Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Suspense Thriller Mystery)

by S. C. King


It’s scary coming upon the scene of a car crash. Buddies Brett and Dennis didn’t know what to do. Seeing someone in the devastated car scared them even more but they had to see if he was alive. Pulling the body out of the car they saw the bullet hole. This man had been shot, but was still alive. Without wasting any time, they rushed him to a nearby hospital and helped save the man’s life.

James Harris was a young attorney in town and had no idea who would try to assassinate him. In fact another man had actually been assassinated near the same time, on the other side of town. Was there some connection between the two cases?

As James was recovering in the hospital, the police were doing their investigation. Was the intent to have two murder victims, or was James a victim of mistaken identity? Was this a mafia hit, two murders for hire or were Brett and Dennis just out for some thrills? Yes the two men who had saved James Harris’s life were now in custody, being accused of the murder across town and the attempted murder of Harris.

Convinced of their innocence, and knowing he owed them, James Harris made it his mission to find the real murderer. Risking life and limb he slowly uncovered the evidence and it all pointed to a wealthy businessman, a leader of a mysterious cult.

Could Harris, a young, rather inexperienced attorney, stand up to a powerful businessman and convince the jury of the businessman’s guilt? Would he be targeted as a result and become a real murder victim now?

Praise for Jude Hardin’s Thrillers:

POCKET-47 sucked me in and held me enthralled. Author Jude Hardin keeps the pace frantic, the thrills non-stop, but best of all is his hero, the wonderfully ironic Nicholas Colt. This is a character I’m eager to follow through many adventures to come.

â??Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of ICE COLD.

The best PI debut I’ve read in years, fit to share shelf space with the best of Ross Macdonald, Sue Grafton, and Robert B. Parker. POCKET-47 is so hot you may burn your hands reading. Highly recommended.

â??J.A. Konrath, author of the Jack Daniels mysteries

Hardin gets everything right in his powerhouse thriller debut, which introduces rock star-turned-PI Nicholas Colt.

â??Publishers Weekly on POCKET-47

KEY DEATH is an exhilarating thriller that punches way above its weight. It hits you hard and fast with crackling suspense, hair-raising twists and stunning revelations. Word of advice: don’t start on this one unless you’re prepared to stay up all night.

â??John Ling, author of THE BLASPHEMER

Colt is a physical, no-holds-barred PI, reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser and Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, and his debut is action-packed. With a hefty toll of dead bodies, some described in cringe-inducing detail, this is crime fiction at its rawest. Hard-boiled connoisseurs should make Colt’s acquaintance now.

â??Booklist on POCKET-47

With CROSSCUT, Jude Hardin takes the PI novel and psychological suspense to a new, unrestrained level. Fast, fierce, and relentless.

â??David Morrell, New York Times bestselling creator of Rambo

by Tracy Stewart

MURDER: Death in Sandton – Themba Malope Investigates

When Themba Malope’s career fast-tracks its way to promotion, this Alexandra resident cannot resist the temptation, although painfully aware of why the promotion is being offered. He wants to make a difference to his world.

However, will his career move give him the satisfaction he craves? Moving to nearby Sandton, the world in which he is now expected to live is a vast contrast to his home in the black township. There are no slums, there are no problems of sanitation. It’s a whole different world.

However, the reminders of the fragility of life await him on his first major case. With obvious connections to a young Afrikaans boy, the death of a Zulu woman must be investigated, regardless of political sensibilities. Warned about involving questioning of the Dekker family, Themba Malope must solve the murder. Will he be able to find the answers? Are they as obvious as they seem on the surface?

Reporting the matter to the police isn’t straightforward for Thandeka as this kind of activity is something girls are encouraged to keep to themselves. However, a sense of decency and the fear of reprisals makes her stand her ground. Helped by aid worker,

Thelma Rice comes to Thandeka’s rescue and tries to assist a young girl as she explains the events which made up the worst moments of her life. When Themba Malope is asked to investigate, he knows the limitations of the law. He knows where lines are drawn and is made painfully aware of the difference between the black white divide as he tries to bring culprits to justice.
