Act Of Contrition: (Rogue Detective Eddie Kane mixes with the mob in this gripping crime drama) (The Eddie Kane Series Book 1)

by Dominic Milne

In the first of this new London-based crime trilogy, we meet the rogue Detective Sergeant Eddie Kane. Eddie is a reckless and dissolute operator, under investigation by the force and in debt to local mob chief, Vincent Mullis. When a killer starts targeting prostitutes in north London, Mullis is unusually keen for Eddie to solve the crime, but why?

A serial killer is targeting prostitutes in Islington, the victims having a number of unusual links. The killings begin the same week that convicted killer and local man, Paddy Graham, is released from prison following a life sentence for murder.

DS Eddie Kane has inadvertently found himself under the thumb of Vincent Mullis, who has taken ownership of a debt Eddie has built up with terminally-ill bookmaker, Arnie Duggan. Eddie’s troubles begin to spiral out of control when he is placed under investigation following a drugs-bust gone wrong. While suspended, he is forced to investigate the murders for Mullis, who wants to get to the murderer before the police. He then reluctantly hears a murder confession from his former bookmaker…

In this heart-stopping, gripping crime drama, Eddie’s investigations lead him into a murky world of pornography, murder and revenge, all of which seems to centre around a local church and the charismatic vicar, Jonathan Carter. Eddie is feeling the pressure from all sides, but will there be any chance of salvation?

If you like Lee Child you’ll love the DS Eddie Kane series…

What people have been saying about this book:-

Awesome Read: â??I read many books and this one was one of the best I have read. I loved it and think I will read it more than twice. It was the kind of book that was almost impossible to put down. Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to everyone.’

A Thumping Good ‘Must’ Read!: â?? â??Browsing the Kindle store for something to ‘unwind’ me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. The characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non-believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!! Far better than the Da Vinci Code by a country mile, I am certainly recommending this to all my many friends.’ â??

Well Written: â??I was looking at a different book, Dan Brown Inferno and this title came up on a reviewers comments suggesting it to be worth a read. I have to agree, it is. Loved the idea of cloning Jesus and for me it was written well, had page turning elements to it but I was disappointed when it ended. In a nice way though! It does leave one hanging…’

Totally preposterous, but enthralling! : â??I just happened on this book while browsing to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let’s be honest – recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to anyone else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is – a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!’

Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book Two free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited.



Don’t Feed the Rat!: Jacob Hicks Murder Mysteries Book 1

When Jacob Hicks, resident weird professor with a phobia for women, is the suspect in a murder case, he reluctantly sets out to prove his own innocence.
He tolerates the help of Emily, the niece of his best pal Dave and on probation for having bitten a policeman.
Together they delve into the gossip and lies surrounding the members of the local allotment society, where gardening implements can turn out to be deadly weapons.

Meanwhile, Paddy the Rat and his friends are plagued by obnoxious teenage rat Cecil, who with his posse is disturbing the peace and quiet of the allotments. This wouldn’t be half as bad if Cecil hadn’t focussed on teasing Mad Maggie, Paddy’s childhood bogeyman. She has recently come alive and is now making Paddy’s life a living hell.

While Inspector McDermott tries to prove Jacob’s guilt, Jacob and Emily deal with scantily clad women, a development project that turns into blackmail and a maniacal old neighbour, who is convinced the rats are out to get her.
Will Milbury Hill ever be the same after this?



Curse of the Immune (The Surviving Young Book 1)

by Levi Doone

My name is Leah Tusa. I’m fourteen years old. I enjoy reading and school. I’m skinny, not very strong, clumsy and I still sleep with stuffed animals. None of which are very useful in a zombie apocalypse.

My brother Luke is the complete opposite, strong, athletic, and couldn’t care less about academics. He’s gone missing and I’m left to fend for myself.

People like me weren’t meant to survive in such a world, yet here I am. Thankfully I find Rudy who saves and trains me as I search for my brother.

Oh, and Rudy’s a handsome guy that’s my age. I fear the trick will be to live long enough to find out if we have a chance at romance.

It seems all the adults and most of the kids have become undead. No one left to tell us what to do, or protect us.

But well protected and knowing all the tricks, will the killer ever stand trial in Parliament House

Better than Scott Turow or John Grisham.

5* Amazon Customer Review May 3 2017

Trial lawyers are trained at telling their clients’ stories to judges and juries, but that skill doesn’t necessarily translate into being a good author. American lawyers who enjoy success include Scott Turow, John Grisham while Great Britain gave us John Mortimer and Sarah Caudwell, Happily. Mr. Mayer, is still with us and deserves to enjoy their success as well. His use of arcane Scots law reminded me a bit of Henry Cecil’ works, without drama instead of humor .

This book succeeded at quickly drawing me in to the unfamiliar world of Scottish courts, lawyers and trials, a.world that is probably unfamiliar even to most Scots. After reading the three short prequels, I read The Trial in two sittings (night and the next day) and then went on to the next book (The Order).

With the protagonist’s roots firmly planted in the mean streets of Glasgow, it also reminded me of Malcolm Mackay’s Glasgow Trilogy, but with far more hope and morality. Pitted against a privileged but decadent social class of lawyers and judges are a triad comprising two Glaswegian blood brothers and a police inspector who must walk the fine line between doing his job while helping the right thing. The inclusion of some other worthy (albeit a bit unpolished) souls has me asking for “moah”!
