Deadly Conditions: A David Wolf Mystery

by Jeff Carson

Hardened by Steel (Steel Corps Book 2)

by J.B. Havens

It’s been two months since one of our own was killed in front of us. Two months of training and waiting. Time is up and another new recruit is due to arrive any minute; the cousin of the man who betrayed us all. The guys aren’t going to like it, but my superior has overridden my protests.

Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, my contact with Aunt Beatrice is discovered and my actions have put her in mortal danger. A hit was ordered from a cartel in Mexico. Led by the cousin of Diego Fernando’s widow, the Vega Cartel has a blood debt to settle and they have come to collect.

Jordon is becoming more attractive to me by the day; as my feelings for him continue to grow, our situation becomes even more complicated when our connection is discovered by one of the team. Events spiral out of my control, forcing me to face my demons and darkest fears. I find myself teetering on the edge of good and evil, poised to fall.

A sinister message has me racing to Mexico, trying to beat the dawn. What I find waiting for me there may spell the end of my life and Steel Corps itself.

I must decide; am I hard enough to make this choice? Is my soul a big enough sacrifice for the lives of innocents? There is no question. I am Staff Sergeant Michaels and I am Steel.

***Hardened By Steel picks up where Core of Steel leaves off and it is recommended to read the books in order.

Is death really necessary?

by Judi Moore

In 2039 the enormous potential of Nanonics has finally been realised. Now it can heal the terminally sick at a molecular level. But the tiny machines can manipulate any matter – and not necessarily for good: they have no conscience.

Gates Hanford is a disaffected scientist whose career imploded when Nanonics failed to appeal to the British public and was abandoned: the single estate of nano-built houses stands resolutely empty. Now he is using Nanonics secretly in an attempt to break the strangehold the petrol-based engine has on the world. His initial results are promising, but … In the USA a swarm of nanites has gone rogue and Nanonics – already unpopular – is immediately banned on both sides of the Atlantic.

Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, Teddy Goldstein is dying of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. All the resources of her father’s prosthetics company cannot save her. Nanonics was her only hope.

But Gates’ work continues. Will he achieve his goal? And, if he does, what sort of world will exist among the rusting hulks of the world’s automobiles?

And how long will Teddy have to enjoy it?



The Ice Ghosts Mystery

by Jane Louise Curry

Professor Jeffrey Bird, investigating unusual seismological disturbances in Austria while there for a conference, has disappeared in an avalanche while skiing with a colleague. Or so the news says. But what about the cable sent to Mrs. Bird by his hospitalized (and apparently off his head) friend: “IT WAS TCE GHOSTS”? In no time at all, Mrs. Bird has packed up her ouija board and bundled herself and Oriole, 18, Perry, 13, and Mab, 11, of to Austria to find their father. When the Birds arrive in Riesenmoos, the high Alpine village where he was last seen, not only does the Hotel Gappenwirt claim to be full up, with no reservation in the name of Bird, but nowhere are there answers about Professor Bird.

What is making the villagers so skittish? What can the odd Herr Doktor Pfnür and his (also Doktor) wife, owners of the mountaineering school in its forbidding castle, have to do with the curious series of earthquakes, avalanches and floods throughout the Alps. Is there a scientific explanation for both Perry’s toothache and the Riesenmoos cows running dry? Is the handsome ski instructor with an eye on Oriole a hero or a villain? And are the frightening Ice Giants out of old legends who haunt the hillsides real? AND, can Mab and Perry (with the help of Oriole and her two young men) unravel the dastardly plot and save the world from the Fairweather Insurance Company?

Why do people shy away from their questions?

anished under mysterious circumstances, and a determined Mrs. Bird sets off with their three children in tow– and her ouija board in her suitcase– to find him.The professor was last seen in the high Alpine village of Riesenmoos, but when Mrs. Bird and Perry, Mab and Oriole arrive there, the villagers have never heard of him and the Hotel Gappenwirt has never heard of Mrs. Bird or her reservation. Not a room is to be found anywhere in the village. Deeply suspicious, the Birds search further afield, and find the Strumpf farm, where young Kani Strumpf rents them the two spare rooms– much to his mother’s distress when she finds out.

Mrs. Bird is right. Something is deeply wrong in Riesenmoos, but what? What are the Ice Ghosts the villagers dread?.
