AGENT FOR JUSTICE
by Duke Southard
Duke Southard’s novel, AGENT FOR JUSTIC, is a finalist in two fiction categories in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. Winners will be announced at the annual banquet on November 21 in Albuquerque.
Last year, A FAVOR RETURNED was a finalist (didn’t win in the general fiction category.) Duke say, “Hope I’m being too obnoxious to share this but it is exciting as I expect LIVE FREE OR DIE (working title) to come out in the spring and it is a sequel to AGENT FOR JUSTICE.”

by KaCinderly Baker
Book 2 in Thirteenth Stone of Aaron Series
In The Thirteenth stone of Aaron, they vowed to carry on the work of Rabbi Katz – uncovering the secret locations of ancient artifacts and helping good triumph over Evil. But now for Eli and Mariah Daniels, the stakes are higher than ever. Their only daughter, Sophia has been taken hostage at a compound in rural New York by Sago, a human agent of the Demon who seeks to destroy them. If they hope to save their daughter’s life, Eli and Mariah must embark on another jopurney into the ancient city of Alexandria, with the help of allies Addison, Shamar, Gabriel. There they will use clues to track down several artifacts, including a mysterious scroll – hiddel by Aristotle himself after the death of Alexander the Great. As Sago does everything in his power to put an end to their quest, the party also faces the destructive actions of religious zealots who threaten to destroy the Library of Alexandria as well as several other key cities. The second book in a trilogy, THE SCROLL OF KNOWLEDGE continues to weave together historical mystery with heart-pounding action, including realistic portrayals of people and places from long ago.
