Insider Justice: A Financial Thriller (Marc Kadella Legal Mysteries Book 8)

by Dennis Carstens

A TOY TO KILL FOR

Celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella takes on the fall-out of a class action suit against a beloved corporate toy company gone wrongâ??and ends up falling down a rabbit hole of insider trading, sex scandal, political corruption, and murder, in the eighth page-turner of the Marc Kadella legal mystery series.

Like most investors, venture capitalist Cal Simpson has his fingers in many a financial pie. There’s cutting edge war plane procurement, state-of-the-art toy manufacturing, and the occasional affair with the right politician (to name a few). Some call him a shady Wall Street kinda guy. Others know him to be a tyrantâ??a mastermind with puppets intricately connected by a billion dollar string.

One of his pet projects is the newest Cannon Brothers toyâ??a motorized skateboard for kids as young as 10 that takes the marketplace by storm, until it blows upâ??literally. Seems its Chinese manufacturer has installed lithium batteries that overheat the braking system, sometimes causing it to explodeâ??leaving 24 kids dead and 500 injured. But the bigger problem is just as sinister: the small pool of people with insider knowledge of the defect are beginning to disappearâ?¦

First there’s Irving Haraldson, a company engineer who discovered the defect before release and brought it to management with a furrowed brow. He was told every single battery would be replaced, release date be damned. And then he was discovered behind a Minneapolis pick-up bar with 3 bullets in his head.

Then there’s the capable albeit young corporate lawyer Lynn McDaniel, who was assigned to defend Cannon Brothers in litigation. After discovering the engineer’s memo and distributing it to her boss, Zach Evans, she turns up dead in the woods en route to a 4th of July party being thrown by Zach’s father-in-law: Cal Simpson.

Zach finds himself on trial for murder, with inimitable criminal lawyer Marc Kadella in his cornerâ??and a nagging suspicion Cal knows more than he’s let on.

A bleak and accurate portrayal of the lewd world of financial crime, where not even children are protected from the greedy and power-hungry, Insider Justice is Dennis Carstens’s most intricate murder mystery yetâ??a heart-racing financial thriller that reads like a delicate puzzle, and a plot that twists and turns with meticulous precisionâ??right up to its astounding conclusion.



Desert (A Roan Mercer Adventure Book 1)

by Jack Dolan

In 1941 a secret German mission came to a bloody end in Egypt’s Western Desert. A doomsday weapon was lost under its shifting sands, buried, but never destroyed.

A brazen attempt to assassinate a British archaeologist in Cairo sends former Military Intelligence Officer Roan Mercer and his team of private security contractors on a mission to track down the would-be killers.

It soon becomes clear to Mercer that the attack is no random crime, but merely one part of a much more nefarious plot involving an old diary, a fanatical warlord, and a plot to launch the world into an all-consuming war. And behind it all, a shadowy organisation whose only interest is securing wealth and power at all costs.

Desert is the first Roan Mercer adventure.

But once he gets a taste of my body, he wants to use me for other things, too.

Is for him to take me like an animal.

FRANKENSTEIN or The Modern Prometheus (The Revised 1831 Edition – Wisehouse Classics)

by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

This is the Revised 1831 Edition of FRANKENSTEIN; OR, THE MODERN PROMETHEUS, a novel written by the English author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley about the young science student Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley’s name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823. Shelley had travelled through Europe in 1814, journeying along the river Rhine in Germany with a stop in Gernsheim which is just 17 km away from Frankenstein Castle, where, two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments. Later, she travelled in the region of Geneva (Switzerland)-where much of the story takes place-and the topic of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her lover and future husband, Percy Shelley. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for days, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the novel’s story.

Shelley completed her writing in May 1817, and Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus was first published on 11 March 1818 by the small London publishing house of Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, & Jones. The second edition of Frankenstein was published on 11 August 1822 in two volumes (by G. and W. B. Whittaker) following the success of the stage play Presumption; or, the Fate of Frankenstein by Richard Brinsley Peake; this edition credited Mary Shelley as the author.

On 31 October 1831, the first “popular” edition in one volume appeared, published by Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley. This edition was heavily revised by Mary Shelley, partially because of pressure to make the story more conservative, and included a new, longer preface by her, presenting a somewhat embellished version of the genesis of the story. This edition tends to be the one most widely read now, although editions containing the original 1818 text are still published. Many scholars prefer the 1818 text, arguing that it preserves the spirit of Shelley’s original publication.
