The Mist

by Nagwa Malik

THE MIST is a spy novel, much in the lines of Jason Bourne, dealing with today’s conspiracies, mostly political, and regarding intelligence agencies.
Our spy Tanya is a Pakistani black ops agent belonging to a secret intelligence agency that officially doesn’t exist. This intelligence agency, called THE MIST, is independent with the power to investigate the governing bodies, including the President, as well as the other intelligence agencies working under the government or the army.
Being a non-existent agency, it also has a global immunity, much as that enjoyed by the black ops run by the CIA.
The job of Tanya, one of the selected agents also known as Knights, is to penetrate all groups that show signs of terrorist activities, especially the registered groups, in order to find out who exactly runs them, whether they are genuine militants or fronts for particular governments.
She is on a two-fold mission: the first being to expose the real brains behind all the terrorist activities taking place worldwide, their violations of international laws by owning black sights, and the second to steer Pakistan clear of a very violent civil war.
The prelude is the first mission in which we follow Tanya into a world of intrigue, exploring different cultures amazingly linked, discovering the colours and flavours of various societies within societies, historical legends- and basic human nature- in her quest for the truth: accumulating and exposing information on the countries involved, their agencies and their relationships with so-called Islamic terrorists.
Steering clear from the stereotypes and a whole mix of truth, conspiracy theories and fiction, this book hopes to inform and entertain the common man.

Visiting Lilly (Jake Talbot Investigates Book 1)

Talbot dismisses the notion of time travel, but then discovers the Ministry of Defence has been monitoring Frankie since his friend disappeared ten years previously. Forced to work with the MOD, Talbot unearths family secrets and betrayals. The families act ruthlessly to prevent him from discovering the facts, colluding to ruin him.

If Frankie is innocent, Talbot won’t let him be victimised. An uneasy understanding grows between them as they follow the evidence, for only the truth will allow Frankie to visit Lilly.

Private View

by Meg Elizabeth Atkins

â??A splendid piece of work’ – New York Times

Chatfield, 1986

After a private art viewing on a bleak February evening, the local gallery owner – the flamboyantly camp Minim Minikin – is found murdered.

A painting on display has also been stolen.

The case has DCI Sheldon Hunter stumped.

After months of enquiry, the investigation has turned up nothing.

No suspects, no murder weapon, no painting and, indeed, no artist.

The identity of the painter, Fayne, whose work disappeared that fateful night was as much a mystery to the police as to the art world at large.

Reluctantly, with no leads to pursue, the case is marked unsolved and forgotten amongst heap of other unresolved cases.

Four years later and Hunter receives a series of anonymous letters and phone calls alleging that a family in the picturesque town of Rush Deeping is somehow involved in the death.

His interest piqued, he decides to investigate further.

Apart from being pillars of the community and monstrously self-regarding, the Saddlers seem somewhat unremarkable.

But as Hunter digs around, he soon discovers that their son, Ian, is missing and his mystery caller claims it has something to do with the artist Fayne.

Can Hunter get to the truth before another body turns up?

Private View is the latest enthralling mystery in the popular series featuring DCI Sheldon Hunter and his team.

Meg Elizabeth Atkins has won many plaudits for her fiction on both sides of the Atlantic, and reviewers have compared her to Elizabeth Bowen and Barbara Pym for the elegance of her writing. In several of her earlier novels, such as Samain, Palimpsest and Tangle, she has explored the disturbing undercurrents beneath the polite surface of English middle-class life, and in Cruel as the Grave forces erupt through the repression and containment of daily existence with violent consequences.

Meg now lives with her husband in a North Yorkshire village. She teaches creative writing and also writes non-fiction books such as Haunted Warwickshire.

Raspberry Ripple Murder: Killer Cupcakes (Book One) (Killer Cupcake Culinary Cozies 1)

by Abby Byne

Bitsie George has always dreamed of owning her own bakery, so when she finds herself suddenly single after 27 years of marriage she jumps at the chance of fulfilling her dream. The only drawback to her new life as a baker is the dead electrician in her kitchen. Was he the victim of a tragic on-the-job accident, or is there something much more sinister afoot? It’s up to Bitsie to find out with a little help from her sister-in-law Liz, her recently-retired-from-the-police-force brother Stan and her too-handsome-to-be-real shop assistant Jack. It’s not easy finding a murderer when your most compelling clue is a half-eaten raspberry ripple cupcake, but perhaps a pleasantly-plump cupcake connoisseur is the perfect woman for the job.

This novella-length culinary cozy will take a reader of average speed about 2 hours to finish. As a bonus, the first chapter of the next title in the series: Cherry Chocolate Murder, is included at the end, so the automatically-generated page estimate is a bit inflated.

With the power of thought, energy, frequencies, she discovers the secrets to the universe and uses these powers (hidden deep within her for much to long)to change the world. Oppression was real in the world she lived in, but she understood that they couldn’t oppress a people with knowledge. There wasn’t time to wait for the people to come to their awakenings, so she decided to bring the awakenings to the people. In hopes that maybe, just maybe the coming generations would stand a chance at freedom, and not just the illusion of it.

ROMANCE: MC BIKER ROMANCE: The Bastards Bride (MC Biker Pregnancy Romance) (Bad Boy Motorcycle Club Military Romance) (Contemporary Suspense Romance Crime Thriller)

by Sabrina Riley

She ran and I never knew about the baby…

Sarah is stunning and full of fire. When I meet her for the first time, she drew me in and

before long I had her body underneath mine and she was begging for more. Nothing

could have been better and I was in love.

I asked her to marry me. A step I never thought to take, but with Sarah, anything was

possible. Marriage, kids, it was time for me to be the man I was with her. I was sick of

he playboy lifestyle and I knew that no other woman would compare.

She said yes and agreed to marry me. I said I do, but when it came time for her to do the

same, she looked at me for a second and then was gone.

Sarah didn’t look back and after seven years I finally found her. She was just as beautifu

l as before, but I learned the truth.

We had a son together and she had kept him from me.

I will have her back and she will be my wife. I will finally have the family that I have

been waiting for all these years.

Seth doesn’t know about our sonâ?¦.

Many years ago I met Seth during a break from college. With his devilish good looks and

confident smile, he quickly had me talked into his bed and screaming out his name. But

he was more than he appeared. Seth was a criminal and a dangerous man.

It was fine when we were just making love, but when I got pregnant everything changed.

I couldn’t raise a kid with him, so I left. I was about to make the biggest mistake of my

life and I just ran.

I never told him about our son. I never saw him again, until he was there at my door,

pushing his way in.

He knows everything and wants answers. Seth gets closer and all I want is another kiss

like before, to make me forget everything that kept us apart.
