American Branded

by Ethan Blackhouse

Steven Brand, a young senator from New Jersey, quickly rises to the highest position in American politics, promising vast reforms to his nation as President. He holds true to his vows, but whether that is a good thing or not is debatable.
In this speculative story of a near-future, Canada and Mexico become American properties, thus creating the United Nations of North America. Yet, is President Brand the true-blue hero he seems to be? He grants particular freedoms while eliminating others, and his stance on bioethical behavior leaves many shaking their heads.
What is the cost of progress in this new world?
Is Steven Brand truly a great leader, or is he a lunatic tyrant?
That, my friend, is for you to decide.

O Eco do Machado: O Meio, o Início e o Fim (Portuguese Edition)

by Soares Mota

Em busca de uma justificativa para seu ideal de que o mundo pode ser um lugar melhor, o jovem Diego Padavona ingressa na Polícia Federal e trilha um caminho que o torna um exímio delegado, colecionador de casos de sucesso no combate aos desvios de conduta na sociedade brasileira.

Vinte anos depois, no entanto, quando três padres aparecem mortos, abandonados em diferentes locais da cidade, Padavona se depara com seu maior desafio. A brutal série de crimes choca a população e coloca em questão sua carreira dentro da corporação; ele precisa agir para interromper os assassinatos e salvar a própria pele.

Para decidir qual o melhor caminho a tomar e chegar até o assassino, mais uma vez o experiente Padavona terá que entrar no inóspito e violento jogo dos psicopatas, cujas palavras lhe são enigmáticas e indignas de confiança. Restam poucas informações ao delegado, que terá de resolver o caso o mais rápido possível, antes que mais um padre apareça morto.

Mas, embora a sinopse deixe transparecer, O Eco do Machado – o Meio, o Início e o Fim não tem pretensão de ser um romance policial, com suspense e mistério. O livro é mais uma história de uma jornada que busca compreender como chegamos a ser quem somos.

Love, Or Something Like It: A Connection Of Stories

by Todd Foley

Love forges commitment. It shatters hearts. It guides as we make our way back – and can lead us further astray.

In the chaotic world of Los Angeles, there is a chain reaction of love, loss, rage, vengeance, shame, bravado, paranoia, tenderness and hope:

  • A fate-determining reunion at a Hollywood hot spot.
  • A far-from-enjoyable holiday cruise.
  • A romance for the ages started in a funeral home.
  • Two very different road trips taken by two very different women . . . with one married man in common.
  • A family dinner ruled by a cold patriarch.
  • A high school sophomore taking a long shot for the girl of his dreams.

With two acts and seven short stories, this is one big, tangled, twisted, all-American tale about love – but not a love story.
