Fireworks Man: An Unconventional Mystery

by Carol Turner

Life hasn’t been easy in the coastal town of Chinook, Washington since the lumber mills closed, but locals find a juicy distraction in the shooting death of Manson Park. Park’s long-suffering neighbors swear their innocence, while privately celebrating the end of Park’s booze-fueled fireworks and ranting out on the street night after night. Chinook citizens make bets on who shot the Fireworks Man (or, Who didn’t want to shoot the Fireworks Man?), while a local blogger spins nasty fables about the suspects. Meanwhile, Detective Ivor “Smoochie” Smith, former lead singer for the defunct Seattle boy-band, Rain Allies, figures he knows who dunnit right away, as he meanders through a spectacle of flawed characters struggling to establish a truce with an absurd and unforgiving world.

The Robot Union

by D Miller

One reviewer wrote: “Excellent book. Unfolds in a cinematic epic fashion […] immerse yourself in other world delight…” When Robbie the lonely housebot makes new friends he discovers an organised robot resistance to human domination. But his forgotten past is out there, looking for himâ?¦

Robbie lives in Antarctica, in a devastated world that depends upon robot slavery. He is harassed by the house and tormented by the kitchen appliances, who watch his every move. When his owners send him to robot therapy he meets other robots, for what he thinks is the first time, and they introduce him to the robot resistance. As Robbie finds his place in this new world, his forgotten past is reaching for him.

Through his new friends Robbie meets three girl bots with an unreasonable passion for soap opera, the leader of the death star community, a talking dog, the world’s oldest robot and something strange hidden under the Antarctic rock and ice. He finds the love of his current life and then the love of his past life, one a robot, the other, somewhat embarrassingly, human. When the robots decide that it is time to take their future into their own hands, both Robbie’s past and the Antarctic entity close upon him. Pulled between powerful forces, Robbie fights to survive and forge a new life for himself and his friends, free of human domination and control.

Sunday with the Devil

by Peter Sykes

Dave McLonaig is rounding the bend to middle-age, stressed and plagued by disturbing half-memories of his childhood. Not oblivious to the pain that he is causing his wife, he abandons his family in Senegal and goes in search of his old school friend, David Glenfie. Unaware of it at the outset, he desperately needs David’s permission to break the pact of silence that they have kept for over thirty years: to talk about the horrifying things that happened on That Sunday.

Dave’s wife, Jenna, is furious and hurt by her husband’s deliberate disappearance. Forced to move in with her in-laws, and dealing with the fact that Dave may never return, Jenna starts to uncover some uncomfortable truths about her husband’s parents, and his past.

Holed up in a boarding house in Birkenhead, Dave too is getting closer to discovering what actually went on. But he is also getting closer to his beguiling, young landlady. Incommunicado, he is unaware that his mother is dying and that his father has finally revealed a terrible family secret to Jenna. But something does not ring true. If Dave’s father is telling the truth, the outlook looks bleak. If Jenna is right, they may have a chance.

A contemporary family drama spanning three generations, Sunday with the Devil blends the characterisation of John Irving with the darkness of Ian McEwan – and delivers the story with the relentlessness and menace of Douglas Kennedy. Unique in that the vast majority of the tale is told through the medium of unfettered dialogue, Sunday with the Devil is at the same time troubling and yet heart warming.
