The Count is unleashed!

A serial killer has the police on edge. The Count’s victims are identified by the tags he left draped around their necks bearing a single designation: a number. Each removed organ was carefully wrapped in plastic, labeled, and the piece-meal corpse was left to be purposefully found. Previously, victims One and Two were located, Four has just been discovered, and pretty, young Bree Wilson has just disappeared.

Could she be Next?

With precious little to go on, Detective Zac Toumille and his partner, Jenny Clark, are dragged along in a media circus as the nightmare continues–all in the hope to end the reign of The Count and free the missing Bree before it’s too late–before she is reduced to just parts–before she becomes–MINIMAL.

Christmas Wedding (Magnolia Mystery Wilmington Series Book 7)

by Ellen Elizabeth Hunter

Wilmington’s social event of the season is about to unfold: Ashley and Melanie’s lavish Christmas-theme double wedding to their princes charming, Jon and Cameron. Vows will be exchanged at St. James Church, out-of-town guests are comfortably ensconced at picturesque B&Bs and the wedding planner is none other than Colin Cowie himself. What could possibly spoil the nuptials? A hyper-critical mother-in-law known to an older generation as the Sweetheart of the Silver Screen? A Wall Street hunk who has vowed to proclaim his love for one of the brides? A “Queen of the Tarot Cards” bridesmaid who is predicting catastrophe for the wedding day? Or is it the mysterious wedding crasher whose life of lies just might cost the brides their own?

Absolute Zero

by Frederick Aldrich

Those responsible for the security of the nation were now fully awake, more so than they had ever been. The colonel’s words had bored through their fatigue like a laser. “If this thing is unleashed, the population of the planet will be returned to the level of the dark ages or perhaps even earlier. The very existence of mankind could be threatened.” In less than two minutes, they had been catapulted into a terrifying new world where they confronted a threat unlike any other in history. Like travelers awakening on a different planet, they were suddenly surrounded by a very unfamiliar landscape.

The gleaming silver tanker truck would not give up its secret easily. Only close inspection by a welder would reveal that the end cap had been skillfully reattached. Indeed, to motorists along the busy interstate, it appeared to identical to thousands of other such trucks that crisscross the country each day. But, unlike them, it contained no liquid, other than the bottled water for the terrorists concealed inside. They slept fitfully, the endless scream of eighteen tires burning into their consciousness. From time to time they would awaken and smoke a cigarette, never looking toward the box at the rear of the steel cavern. It contained a weapon they could not fathom, a horrible weapon.

In the early years, Fidel Castro believed his regime would usher in a new world order, with Cuba taking its place among the great nations of the hemisphere. But the American embargo had put an end to that, plunging his country practically into the Stone Age. Gradually, bicycles replaced cars as fuel shortages compounded the scarcity of virtually every basic necessity. On the walls throughout Havana, dispirited citizens scrawled â??In Cuba, death is redundant.’ As his country slipped deeper into oblivion, Castro’s hatred grew and he resolved to repay the Americans for what they had done.
