      PURGATORY KEY

      by Darrell James 

      Handling a ransom payoff for two teenage girls shouldn’t be hard for an incredibly sharp investigator like Del Shannon.  But the deal is botched when she’s forced to kill one of the kidnappers.  Del can hardly forgive herself for screwing up her best chance at finding the missing girls.  Meanwhile, time is running out for Lissa Rogers and Kendren Kozak, held captive by a dangerous fugitive on an island in the Louisiana bayous … and quite possibly the site of a legendary treasure.

    STEPS TO HEAVEN the internationally acclaimed British crime thriller.

    There’s a new detective in town! Maverick Royal Military Policeman, Sgt Major Tom Crane, is a Special Investigations Branch detective based at Aldershot Garrison, England. Crusty Crane leads his team under the watchful eye of fresh-faced Captain Edwards, a young officer who cannot control his recalcitrant Sgt Major. A young soldier murders his wife and six year old son and then commits suicide, after recently returning from Afghanistan.

    As Crane investigates he finds the soldier had links with a local church. As the body count rises, events take a darker turn and he wonders what the churches are offering – salvation, or slaughter? Crane is angered by his Captain’s decision to stop investigating the cases. He also has to cope with demands on his time and his emotions from his wife, who wants them to start a family and also wants Crane to leave the Army.

    Book Reviews:

    “She is on a par with the literary giants of the genre” Zen Cherry author and reviewer

    “Superbly written military mystery” Hayley Sale The Kindle Book Review

    “This is an absorbing story, with a well-constructed plot assembled on the foundations of a strong basic theme. The characters are believable and likeable and the backdrop to the story – the army garrison – provides an interesting glimpse of life in the forces. Producers of television shows are always looking for new detective characters and I imagine that the army investigator, Sgt Major Crane, would be right up their street. I heartily recommend Steps To Heaven to fans of crime thrillers, police procedurals and whodunnits.” R R Gordon e-thriller.com

Vilma Espin, Asela De Los Santos, Yolanda Ferrer- WOMEN IN CUBA: THE MAKING OF A REVOLUTION WITHIN THE REVOLUTION

      WOMEN IN CUBA: THE MAKING OF A REVOLUTION WITHIN THE REVOLUTION

      From Santiago de Cuba and the Rebel Army, to the Birth of the Federation of Cuban Women

      by Vilma Espin, Asela De Los Santos, Yolanda Ferrer

      The social revolution that in 1959 brought down the bloody Batista disctatorship began in the streets of cities like Santiago de Cuba and the Rebel Army’s liberated mountain zones of eastern Cuba.  The unprecedented integration of women in the ranks and leadership of this struggle was a true measure of the revolutionary course it has followed to this day.  Here, in firsthand accounts by women who helped make it, is the story of that revolution … and “the revolution within.”  Introduction by Mary-Alice Waters.  US$20.  Also in Spanish.  ISBN 978-1-60488-036-6
