by Lori Ryan

Laura Kensington is a desperate woman. She knows that if she doesn’t flee, not only is her life in danger, so is the life of her unborn child.

Drawn to Cade, Laura finds comfort in his passion and his love, yet she fears he sees her as merely another needy case. But when her past resurfaces, bringing grave peril into her world once more, Cade is Laura’s only hope. Relentless enemies, ones both anticipated and unexpected, are drawing closer by the day, ensnaring her in a deadly web of deception, betrayal, and murder.

Under the Gun (Munro Mystery Book 1)

by Wes Weldon

Venus born private investigator and ex-con, Munro, is knee-deep in the wildest murder case of his career. Munro’s investigations among desolate, broken streets are filled with tragic and interminable crimes that often take him to dark places in an already haunting future world. His latest case is no exception. Dorothea Fleming, the wife of a renowned yet secretive scientist, seeks answers as to why her late husband, Dr. Harold Fleming and his colleagues are dying under seemingly random circumstances. The further Munro digs, however, the more he begins to learn that these are anything but lethal cases of ‘bad luck’.

Munro utilizes every shady character who owes him a favor from Earth to Venus itself to unravel the bizarre circumstances surrounding Dr. Fleming and his team. None of them can stop his world from being further turned upside down, however, when Munro lends an all-too-willing hand to a mysterious and ravishingly beautiful stranger named, Jolien. She’s on the run from a life of control and enslavement and bringing even more chaos -and heat- into Munro’s already turbulent life.

Now they’re both being hunted by the local authorities, killer androids and brainwashed zombies, facing off against one of the world’s most powerful corporations and forced to stop a mad man from destroying Earth, and quite possibly existence itself – forever.

The Hampstead Mystery

by Arthur Rees

“Hallo! Is that Hampstead Police Station?”
“Yes. Who are you?”
“Detective-Inspector Chippenfield of Scotland Yard. Tell Inspector Seldon
I want him, and be quick about it.”
“Yes, sir. Hang on, sir. I’ll put you through to him at once.”
