Greed: An Amber Monroe Crime Thriller Book 1

by C.M. Sutter

Washburn County Deputy Amber Monroe is following in the footsteps of her sister, Jade. She devours everything she can during her detective training in hopes of being promoted soon.
Living in small-town USA has its advantages, like a sense of security, and disadvantages, like being close to Milwaukee and its crime. Washburn County has become the dumping ground of murder victims, courtesy of its neighboring county to the south.
When two men are discovered on the outskirts of North Bend, each with a bullet to the head, Amber’s team, led by Lieutenant Jack Steele, hits the highway in search of a killer.
Assisted by the Milwaukee PD, they go deep into Brew City’s underbelly, which reveals far more than anyone ever expected. Crimes involving murder and counterfeiting keep the team running in every direction, but it’s Amber’s attraction to a new man in North Bend that puts her front and center on the killer’s short list.
She doesn’t get far before the entire case turns upside down.

Hail Storme: A Wyatt Storme Thriller

by W.L. Ripley

Vietnam vet and former pro football player Wyatt Storme is bow-hunting in Missouri when he stumbles upon a hidden field of marijuanaâ?¦and is attacked by a vicious dog and shot at by a sniper. He reports violent incident confidentially to the local Sheriffâ?¦who is murdered the next day. Storme believes there’s a connection and starts asking questions, unraveling a deadly conspiracy of corruption, drug-trafficking and organized crimeâ?¦ and making himself someone that just about everybody wants dead.

The first novel in W.L. Ripley’s acclaimed Wyatt Storme series.

PRAISE FOR “HAIL STORME”

“Cadenced prose, an Ozarks setting, a football-star drop-out hero” and a small-town, drug-related plot add up to a most interesting debut. Tough guy Wyatt Storme, with few sleuthlike qualifications other than athletic principle, divides his time between Colorado and Paradise, Missouri. Having reported the existence of a marijuana field to the local sheriff, Wyatt further involves himself in local affairs when someone then murders the sheriff. A dry-witted bounty hunter, a pea-brained sheriff’s deputy, Paradise thugs, and various federal agents make for lively, if not unexpected, adventure. An undeniable treat” Library Journal

“Here’s one for the boys who like to kick butt. As much joyful bashing as it is ‘Red Harvest’ on uppers, though completely innocent of Hammett’s dark vision. Fighting the good fight has seldom been so much atavistic fun!” Kirkus Reviews

“Storme is one of my all-time favorite series characters, up there with Spenser and Dave Robicheaux,” Ace Atkins, NY Times bestselling author of “Robert B. Parker’s Kickback.”

INCEPTION: A Black Flagged Thriller Prequel (The Black Flagged Series)

by Steven Konkoly

“…explosive thriller in the tradition of Flynn, Thor, Clancy…”

Daniel Petrovich, the most lethal operative created by the Department of Defense’s Black Flagged Program, represents a new breed of covert operative.

He wasn’t recruited from Special Forces, law enforcement or any of the alphabet agencies. He isn’t motivated by a sense of undying patriotism or bitter revenge. He’s none of those things, which makes him all the more dangerous. Unlike most “heroes,” there’s no obvious black and white in Petrovich’s world. He sees everything in gray–an uncompromising trait that will keep him alive long enough to pull off one of the biggest coups in covert military history.

INCEPTION is Daniel Petrovich’s origin story. The perfect place for a new reader to start the BLACK FLAGGED series.

“Black Flagged lays the foundation for a gritty, high-octane series exploring the serpentine link between covert operations and government agency politics.” – Amazon reviewer

By USA Today bestselling author (USA Today December, 15 2016)



The Fifth Juror: A Women of Redemption Suspense Thriller

by Lori Lacefield

The trial ended years ago, but her nightmare is just beginning.

“The ending was unpredictable. Definitely a great readâ?¦” – A Lawrence
“Intriguing from the very first pageâ?¦” – K Crowell
“This book did not disappoint!” – H Watt

Former juror Jess Dawson is facing a difficult time in her life, raising an autistic son and navigating a failing marriage, when her past service as a juror on a high-profile death penalty case comes back to haunt her. Mikael Kriskan, a young Russian the jury sentenced to death for killing his adoptive American parents one cold Colorado night, is nearing his execution date when the foreman of their jury and his wife are found dead, killed in the same manner as Kriskan’s parents.

Then, a second juror appears to commit suicide and leaves a disturbing note to his fellow jurors attached to his chest: KJ – do the right thing. Only Jess knows the true meaning of the message but as others begin to suspect the truth, Jess quickly finds herself in the crosshairs of Kriskan’s prosecutor, also her lover, who’s intent on executing Kriskan, and members of the Russian mob, who are hell bent on returning the genius Kriskan to his Russian roots.

The choice they give former juror Jess Dawson seems easy: Kill Mikael, kill her son. Save Mikael, save her son. But in a case where the post-conviction appeals have run out, the impact the truth will have upon her family is dire, and the lives of her fellow jurors are equally at stakeâ??this choice will be anything but easy.

A nail-biting suspense thriller that is part of the Women of Redemption Series, books that feature women who may not be perfect, but perfectly kick-ass when given a second chance. Be one of the first to discover this new series! !

Interview with the Author

Q – So, what makes the Women of Redemption books special?

A – I think it really boils down to the characters. When I write, I let the characters tell me who they are, and what I discover is that like any of us, they wrestle with the challenges life throws at them in a varied manner. The emotions they experience are real – anger, betrayal, hurt, grief, guilt – and the choices they make as a result – whether revenge, vengeance, or just turning a blind eye – may not be good or right, but they’re human, and people make mistakes. The question facing each in the end, is what will they do to make the wrong right?

Q – You like to throw your strong female protagonists into some impossible situations. Why is that?

A – I’ve always liked books about ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. I believe people often find the best in themselves when faced with the worst. I want readers to put themselves in these women’s shoes, and thinkâ?¦ What if I discovered the man I found guilty of murder was innocent and I was the one responsible for securing his death sentence? How far would I go to get justice if I was kidnapped and the perpetrators responsible were never punished? What would I do if I found out the woman I most respected was taking justice into her own hands?

Q – These books seem to cross genre boundaries, a bit mystery, suspense, and thriller.

A – I think all authors like to create books that mirror the kind of books they like to read. My top picks are usually serial killer thrillers, psychological thrillers, private detectives, and any number of thriller and mystery best sellers. I love a fast-paced style that keeps me on the edge of my seat. As a result, I think my books tend to take a part from each genre – a bit “whodunit”, some “don’t open that door”, add a few high stakes and blend them together…

Q – So, why should a reader check out your books?

A – Because you’ll love the page-turning action! Thanks for reading!

When teenager Nick Buckingham tumbles from the fifth floor of an apartment block, Detective Sergeant Solomon Gray answers the call with a sick feeling in his stomach. The victim was just a kid, sixteen years old. And the exact age the detective’s son was, the son Gray has not seen since he went missing at a funfair ten years ago. Each case involving children haunts Gray with the reminder that his son may still be out there – or worse, dead. The seemingly open and shut case of suicide twists into a darker discovery. Buckingham and Gray have never met, so why is Gray’s number on the dead teenager’s mobile phone?

Gray begins to unravel a murky world of abuse, lies, and corruption. And when the body of Reverend David Hill is found shot to death in the vestry of Gray’s old church, Gray wonders how far the depravity stretches and who might be next. Nothing seems connected, and yet there is one common thread: Detective Sergeant Solomon Gray, himself. As the bodies pile up, Gray must face his own demons and his son’s abduction.

Crippled by loss Gray takes the first step on the long road of redemption. But is the killer closer to home than he realised?

Howard Linskey, author of the Detective Ian Bradshawcrime series

“Keith Nixon does for Margate what Peter James did for Brighton â?¦ As dark and brooding as the wind-lashed shores of the North Sea, and with its disturbing echoes of the Elm Guest House scandal and suggestions of deep-seated institutional corruption, Dig Two Graves is a superb addition to the rich Brit Crime scene.”

The Note

by Andrew Barrett

A thrilling novella introducing Eddie Collins, CSI

Have you ever had that feeling of being watched but when you turn around no ones there?

I have.

It was raining, and I was working a murder scene around midnight when that prickle ran up my spine. If I’d listened to that feeling, if I’d thought back to my past, maybe I could have prevented the terror that was to come.

Back at the office, I found a death threat on my desk.

I had no idea who sent it or why they wanted to kill me.

But I was about to find out.

I’m Eddie Collins, a CSI, and this is my story.

Andrew Barrett is the best-selling author of The End of Lies. This novella serves as a thrilling introduction to his Eddie Collins Series. It will appeal to fans of authors like Ian Rankin, Robert Bryndza and Kathy Reichs.

Allie Callas has a normal-ish job: she’s the owner and sole employee of Finders Keepers, a service dedicated to the time-consuming task of finding (and finding out) things on the tiny Greek island of Merope.

Once Upon A Time: Billionaires in Disguise: Flicka (Runaway Princess Book 1)

by Blair Babylon

When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a man who is definitely not a prince, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.

But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.

Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.

The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too.

The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife.

So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince.

Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.

No one knew that he had been her first lover and broken her heart, but he’s the only one she can trust now.

The Transamerica Cell: A fast-paced, gripping, action adventure, conspiracy thriller, with a breath-taking ending (Hedge & Cole Thriller Series).

by Kevin Bradley

A police officer has murdered an innocent man. A young woman is the only witness. Now she must run for her life.

A trip across America turns into a nightmare, with survival being the only objective.

Maddie Millar is desperately trying to keep ahead of her pursuers. But who exactly are they? And who is doing all the killing?

A young man may be able to help, but has he told them enough before he dies in a horrific accident.

This is edge of the seat stuff, and the plot twists and turns as the story unfolds.

This is a novel in the acclaimed Hedge & Cole thriller series.
(The Transamerica Cell story concludes in this book, but the main characters are set to return in future exploits).

Cole is a tough, ex-military man. He’s the sort of person that trouble and danger seem to follow, wherever he goes. He can be ruthless when he needs to be. And he often finds the need.

Hedge is a reluctant hero. Plagued with anxieties and haunted by flashbacks, he is not the type of lead character that you would normally expect. This novel is refreshingly different in that respect.

You are invited along for the ride, but only if you have the stomach for it!

Kevin Bradley once again shows how to mix fast paced action, with suspense and intrigue. This book will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

This book would sit well alongside your Lee Child and Jack Higgins favourites!

What people are saying about The Transamerica Cell

“This is a really great book with many interesting characters. I was gripped right from the beginning.”

“What a great read, one I couldn’t put down. The author, Kevin Bradley, is up there with the likes of Scott Mariani, Mark Dawson and Stephen Leather. Plenty of drama, suspense, twists and turns.”

“Riveting, with great characters and a great story. Excellent use of facts and geographic backdrop. The author makes you feel like you are actually living the story.”

“I loved this story. I like the fast pace and the interaction between the two main characters. The Hedge & Cole books keep getting better and better!”

“I can definitely recommend this book. It has a fantastic ending. I’ll be amazed if this book isn’t made into a film at some point.”

“There’s a touch of Lee Child about this.”

  • Or is the murderer closer to home? Could it be the family physician, Dr. Royce Trenton? His outrage at being asked the simplest of questions does make Clayborn suspicious that he’s hiding something.
  • Last, there is Dr. Trenton’s young niece, Diana Darling. An innocent to be sure, except for one thing; she wants to be an actress. Is Miss Darling as innocent as she appears, or is it all an act?

Clayborn has his work cut out for him to catch this killer. Perhaps you can help him?

For fans of Clue, Murder She Wrote and Agatha Christie. This exciting mini-series will test your ability as a sleuth!

Blood Will Tell (Tropical Breeze Cozy Mystery Book 10)

by Mary Bowers

The tiny Florida community of Santorini is a peaceful haven, dozing quietly by the sea. Then Harriet Harvey Strawbridge shows up and begins to make life miserable for everybody, especially her cousin, Willa. Though he is not in touch with his own feelings enough to understand love, Edson Darby-Deaver likes Willa rather intensely, and his streak of chivalry may get him in over his head. Worse, he can’t concentrate on his work: paranormal investigations. Taylor Verone, reluctant psychic, doesn’t know who to rescue first: Edson or Willa. But when someone solves the problem by committing murder, Taylor finds herself mixed up with cops, ghosts and strange dreams – again.

This book is a sequel to Tropical Breeze Cozy Mystery #4, The Haunted Beach. While Blood Will Tell is a complete, stand-alone mystery, there are references to, and a few spoilers of, The Haunted Beach, which were unavoidable.
