Blood Week (The Saint and the Sinner Book 1)

by J.D. Martin

Criminals of Kansas City are being murdered and displayed to the public. In an annual ritual known as Blood Week, bodies appear around the city for seven days until the vigilante goes into hiding again. While the public debates, Detective Alexander Saint is charged with stopping the killer. He may be a playboy with a trust fund, but he takes his job on the force seriously. Teaming up with his new partner, Marcus Delgado, they must discover the meaning behind the clues written in Latin at each crime scene before he disappears for another year.

The detectives search for the killer in an investigation that forces them to deal with the morality of vigilantism. Is he doing the police a favor by cleaning up the streets, or circumventing the justice system by declaring himself judge, jury, and executioner? Saint and his partner must decide where they draw the line between justice and murder.

Deadly Impressions

by Art Johnson

“The intrigue and suspense is off the charts.” Melanie Adkins, Top Amazon Reviewer.

FBI special Agent Chris Clarke and his partner Carlos Chubbs Gonzales are off to Los Angeles to investigate the kidnapping of a twenty-four year old heiress. Her grandfather, multi-billionaire Ezekiel Fick, who has the President of the United States on speed-dial, cracks the whip over the Mayor of Los Angeles, which puts L.A. Police Chief Fergus McCreary on the hot seat to find Stephanie Fick–and fast.

Arnold Blackburn, an ex-LAPD Lieutenant recently booted off the force who is now a Private Detective in L.A. County is called on to help. Blackburn has respect from both sides of the law, which gives him access to information the LAPD isn’t privy to.

But Stephanie’s abductors won’t follow the rule book. A week goes by and yet no ransom is demanded. Why was she kidnapped if not for money? Her grandfather has a Swiss/German background, and his uncle was a key architect under the wing of Adolph Hitler during World War II. Some of Hollywood’s most famous may also be involved. Some of them had relatives in Europe during the war, whose art collections were confiscated by the Nazi regime.

With Arney in tow, Chris and Chubbs make their way through the murky waters of Hollywood to find clues which don’t connect until the very end. The action travels to Cannes, France, Monaco and Tunisia with all roads leading back to L.A. as the conclusion smacks you in the face like a wet boxing glove in the dark. You won’t see this one coming, you can bet on that!

Deadly Impressions asks hard questions about the past and the answers will dictate who lives and who doesn’t.
