Blue Amber by William Burton McCormick

Blue Amber by William Burton McCormickImprisoned revolutionary Fricis Svaars knows his days are numbered. The Tsar’s secret police plot his murder within the walls of Riga prison, but Fricis won’t go quietly to his own assassination. His daring escape attempt takes him to the rocky shores of the Baltic Sea in winter, trapped between the guns of his relentless pursuers and the frigid waters of the open sea…

“Blue Amber crackles with energy, authenticity and pure storytelling magic from the first line nonstop to the last. William Burton McCormick’s timeless tale of men challenged by both the elements and their own psyches, set against the backdrop of Latvia in 1910, reads like Jack London with just enough James Rollins and Steve Berry thrown in for good measure. A beautifully realized vision that’s riveting in all respects.”

Secret Wars: An Espionage Story by Joe Goldberg

Secret Wars by Joe GoldbergIn the long history of the CIA’s global fight against terrorism, the weapons have remained the same: the use of force and covert action.

When terrorists funded by the Libyan government strike airports in Rome and Vienna in 1985, the CIA enlists top propaganda expert Mike Garnett to help recruit a high-ranking Libyan official, Foreign Minister Abdallah Mukhtar, to work for the CIA. As violence escalates between the US military and terrorists based in Libya, Garnett utilizes CIA assets in Hollywood to produce a propaganda video designed to convince Mukhtar he was betrayed by his own regime. Garnett’s plan works—but goes sideways when it motivates the Libyan official to do something Garnett didn’t even consider.

Sharp and insightful, Secret Wars: An Espionage Story is a thrilling tale of deception, betrayal, and patriotism—and Garnett soon learns they’re not as black and white as they seem when he’s forced to reevaluate the true nature of the business of deception.

Public Service by Colin Knight

Public Service by Colin KnightNot many jobs are for life.

On Friday March 2, 2012, Jeff’s train derailed; a confidential email revealed that Jeff’s boss, under the guise of government-wide cut backs, planned to ‘let Jeff go’ so they could use the savings to reward and promote their sycophant lackeys and painted whore.

Confessions Of A Hit Man by Richard Godwin

Confesssions Of A Hit Man by Richard GodwinConfessions of a Hit Man is a high octane thriller with a plot that adds velocity like a well-oiled chicane. When ex-Royal Marine Jack becomes a paid assassin, work comes easily, especially when working for the Sicilian Mafia, until he gets drawn into a government plot selling enriched plutonium to a rogue Nation.

A very very good mystery is hard to write about with using spoilers. This one is so tightly written that one episode leads naturally to another, and the finale is blistering indeed—in this case, it is the protagonist’s soul that is blistered, although life is not done with him yet. And something else is blistered: the “top of the tree,” as the hit man, Jack, put it. The national and multinational networks, the CIAs and MI5s, the Irguns, and the KGBs. Not all of these are specifically involved in the story, but this kind of organization, its deceptions and the money it siphons off from the people, is delineated in all its power. Richard Godwin shows why it is not only an organization, but has become a tradition. And an obsession,its paranoia mirroring out own. Interesting word, mirror.
Richard Godwin is known for the various genres he combines in his work: mystery, horror, espionage, exotic adventure, erotica, and satire. Most of these can be subsumed by the epithet “pulp,” used in the sense it can be used of Jim Thompson, Charles Bukowski, James M Cain, Gerald Kersh, or Jean-Patrick Manchette. All of them are present here, even satire, in this case of spy novels of course. It makes you see these _Confessions_ uncanny and off-centered. That forces the reader to look further into what kind of story s/he is reading. For example, one victim dies while singing “My Way” in the shower.

Murder Most Rural by Charlie Flowers

Murder Most Rural by Charlie FlowersMeet Riz and Bang-Bang. MOD troubleshooters by trade, their work normally involves covert ops and counterterrorism. A routine exercise with the SAS takes them to a sleepy Essex village, where not only do they stick out somewhat as a British Pakistani couple, but there has also been a mysterious suicide.
Or have they stumbled across the perfect murder?

“I like Charlie Flowers. His writing is so sharp, so exact. Like slicing celery on a cutting board. After having read other tales in the Riz saga, I’m happy to say that this most recent story, Murder Most Rural, is just as tight and as clever as his other books. And you’re rewarded for starting from the beginning of the series, as the relationship between Riz and Bang-Bang is enjoyable and, even though some of the ordeals they go through are unbelievable, seems believable. This power couple shoots, breaks glass over people’s heads, and then kiss. They compliment each other. They’re definitely one of my favorite romantic duos in modern day story-telling. And the chapters move so briskly, even more so than in books past. You feel compelled to keep flipping pages, just like in every good thriller. As long as Charlie Flowers keeps pumping out these Riz stories, I’ll keep reading them.” RICH KNIGHT

The Douglas family just wants to live their lives, and maybe find a bit of happiness. But when the ghost in their home breaks out of a centuries-long sleep, all hope for happiness will die. Because the thing that haunts them is not just evil… It is something much, much worse. Watching them from the shadows. Hungry to start killing once more. And thirsty for the blood of the children, the blood he has so long been denied. The thing that haunts them is not just evil. It is twisted.

Vampire Classmates (A Transylvanica High Short) by R. Barri Flowers

vampFrom R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the Transylvanica High series, featuring young adult vampire novels, Count Dracula’s Teenage Daughter and Out For Blood, come the prequel audio short story, Vampire Classmates.

Seventeen-year-old Lydia Knight was about to start her senior year at Transylvanica High, one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist.

She is a bit leery about her cousin, Roland DuPree, eighteen, coming to live with her and parents in Harbor Heights, Michigan, with his dark clothing and odd behavior. But since he is family, she has to tolerate him and even accept the fact that her best friend, Mandi, is attracted to her cousin.

Roland DuPree wasn’t exactly thrilled to be leaving Owl’s Bluff, Oregon, to spend his senior year at Transylvanica High. But he understood why. He had been forced to relocate. Unbeknownst to Lydia, Roland was a teen vampire who had bitten off more than he could chew in Owl’s Bluff.

Now he was trying to fit in with Lydia and friends in a new community. But following the rules had never been his strong suit—especially with a craving for fresh rather than powdered human blood, and a potentially ripe for the biting target in his cousin’s attractive friend, Mandi.

Will shaking up things in Harbor Heights expose Roland for who he truly is? Or can he keep his secret while trying to stay true to his heritage as the newest vamp resident in town?
