Between Midnight and Dawn

by Cheryl Yeko

Nicole Chambers’ track record with men is bad. Very bad. She’s sworn off dating for the foreseeable future. Recovering from an assault by the last man she’d only casually dated, Nicole is attacked again in her rural home. If not for the hot guy who showed up about her rental cottage, she would have been dead for sure.

Her self-imposed sabbatical is soon tested when he moves into her backyard.

Kyle’s mother was kidnapped and murdered when he was just a kid. Filled with rage and a determination to hunt down the man who became known as the Clove Hitch Killer, he goes into law enforcement. When his efforts lead him to Nicole Chambers, he falls for her completely.

Now he’s torn between keeping her safe, or using her as bait to capture a killer.

A Study in Scarlet is the first story to feature Sherlock Holmes, and the first work of fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as a detective tool. The story opens with Holmes and Watson meeting each other for the first time, and their decision to become flat-mates at 221B Baker Street. Soon they are involved in a murder-mystery involving kidnapping, enslavement and revenge that will test the limits of Holmes’ skills and establish a life-long relationship with Watson. Sherlock Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning, astute observation, and forensic skills to solve difficult cases. Deductive reasoning allows Holmes to impressively reveal a stranger’s occupation. Similarly, by studying inanimate objects, he is able to make astonishingly detailed deductions about their owners. This mindset was a major innovation in the field of crime fiction, inspiring authors like Robert J. Sawyer, Neil Gaiman and Stephen King.

Welcome to the Glue Factory

by CIAN MCLYSAGHT

Forty-something film lab-technician Frank McIntyre’s one obsession since graduating from film school, is to bring his story, ‘Chop out the Mule’, to the silver screen. After a soul destroying decade of working at Manny the Cypriot’s film lab, processing miles of film for colonic cleansing instructional films and dog food commercials, he realizes his only salvation, lies in blackmailing the once Hollywood acting legend Teddy Diamond, into playing the lead role, of unsuccessful talent agent, turned drug smuggler â??Harry Bracco’.
The tale is a thrillingly savage, black comedy about the f**ked up price of hope and that desperation knows no bounds.
