    If I knew what I know now, would I have searched so hard for the truth? Anne Williams says she killed her best friend, Karoline. But did she? Or is there more to Karoline’s mysterious death than meets the eye?

    Anne embarks on a compelling journey to discover her past and exposes an unusual history, horrific crimes and appalling betrayals. Through unexpected turns and revelations, Anne learns about love, family and who she really is. Can she survive the truth?

    Book Reviews:

     “In Catherine Astolfo’s chilling new novel Sweet Karoline, things aren’t always as they seem. Anne, the multifaceted anti-heroine in this noir tale takes a fateful journey into her forgotten past, uncovering the painful roots of her childhood. While furrowing for answers, a mystery unfolds, truths swirl to the surface, a heinous murder occurs. Who’s the killer? Caught in a tangled web of greed, lies and deceit Anne must come to terms with her past, present and future, and the bleak realization that those we hold close may be the last ones to trust. Compelling, visually descriptive, deftly delivered…Catherine Astolfo’s got the goods!” —Douglas Wickard, author of A Perfect Husband

    “Astolfo’s wonderful first sentence in Sweet Karoline explodes on the page and resonates right to the end of this twisting examination of dangerous minds. Never have I encountered a narrative voice that alternates more deftly between alienating and enticing.” —Mel Bradshaw, author of Fire On The Runway

     “A deliciously twisted story about the perplexing power of adult female relationships. By turns scathingly funny and darkly insightful, Sweet Karoline is a hedonistic journey with all the right ingredients: lust, betrayal, true love and mystery. Grab a glass of wine and have the bottle handy. A compelling read from the start through to the surprising end.” —Robin Spano, author of Death’s Last Run

Kathy Bennett Author- A DEADLY BLESSING

 A Deadly Blessing by Kathy Bennett

    LAPD Detective Maddie Divine, Book One

    The critically ill daughter of the governor of California has been kidnapped. LAPD Detective Maddie Divine is assigned to find her before it’s too late. But this high-profile case comes with secrets on every side: cops, politicians, even the innocent.

    A Deadly Blessing is a lightning-paced story of suspense that will keep readers on edge from beginning to end


    Book Reviews:

    Barnes and Noble chose A Deadly Blessing as a Best Nook Book Original for 2012.

    “I’ve read quite a few crime novels and “A Deadly Blessing” is one of the best. I’d never heard of Ms Bennett, but after reading this book, I place her name on the list of my favorite crime novelists. As any top author should, she’s created a story that is fast paced, exciting, and realistic. She seamlessly blends the crimes with political intrigue and a look at the inner turmoils of her main character, Maddie Divine. The book is written in what I feel is a very unique way in that Ms Bennett tells the story through the eyes of the characters involved in each “scene”. This gives the reader a better look at the motivations behind the actions as well as allowing the reader to form a bond with the people in the story. I wish there was a higher rating. This is definitely a must read book.” – Sheila Rae Myers

    “LAPD is always a favorite, and this one is sure to please. A great story and surprise ending makes Kathy Bennett’s second novel a clear winner. Put this one on your reading list.” – Edward Pinhey

Ira Berkowitz Author- BLACK ANGEL

Black Angel by Ira Berkowitz Only $2.99 Kindle Deal

    NEW RELEASE- #2 in the Jackson Steeg mystery series

    Retired NYPD Detective Jackson Steeg returns in a harrowing new thriller from the Shamus-Award winning author, Ira Berkowitz.

    They called her The Bride. Young, homeless, and wearing a tattered wedding dress and veil matted with grime, she floated through the streets of Hell’s Kitchen like a spectre. Until she wound up dead.

    To everyone, including the NYPD, she was a throwaway. But not to Steeg. Her life was a nightmare, but her death demanded justice. There had to be a balancing of the books.

    Book Reviews:

    “Black Angel is the gripping, suspenseful tale of ex-cop Jackson Steeg vs. the forces of evil in Hell’s Kitchen. It is also a social commentary on the haves vs. the have nots in 21st century NYC. Steed is an imperfect hero, but it is impossible not to root for him, even when he screws up. The best novel so far in a great series!”  By Lisa – Amazon
    “Once again Ira Berkowitz and Jackson Steeg have collaborated on a riveting tale of a lost girl whose soul needs saving, posthumously. I Iove Berkowitz’s spare prose- not an extra word-and his ability to draw you in and keep you reading. He makes “noir” one of the best genres in today’s mysteries. Look forward to the next one.” By Michael Franzblau
    “ I was so excited to read the newest Jackson Steeg novel. I have come to think of Jackson as family. Once again Ira Berkowitz keeps you on the edge of your seat in this newest story in the series. It is a page turner for sure and you just cannot stop reading. As always when it is finished I have to go back and read it again because I can never have enough of these wonderful characters that Mr. Berkowitz so well brings to life. I wait in anticipation for the next in the series! I highly recommend this book and the previous ones if you have not read them.” By Ana Lasser

“Duffy Brown has created a delightful world filled with charm and humor and sprinkled with those wonderful Southern metaphors . . .” Reviewed by: Mary Marks New York Journal of Books

“he author needn’t worry about the future of her fledgling series, if it remains true to the form displayed here. A smiling Savannah salute, complete with frosty-cold martini and blue-cheese-stuffed olives. ”  Shine online magazine David Marshall James

“I loved the town of Savannah, Georgia, with the ecclectic mix of characters. For a town that is supposed to be about genteel lifestyle and sipping iced tea there sure was a lot going on!! Iced Chiffon was a stellar read and I can’t wait to see where Duffy Brown takes these characters next. ” Cozy mystery book reviews

Wendy Cartmell Author- STEPS TO HEAVEN

      by Wendy Cartmell
  1. 51LCpLl9HpL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-70,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]Sgt Major Crane novel #1

    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

Chester D. Campbell Author- BEWARE THE JABBERWOCK


      by Chester D. Campbell

Beware the Jabberwock by Chester D. Campbell

  1. 518L1vAqKjL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-65,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]Post Cold War Political Thrillers #1

    As the Cold War sputters to a close and the Soviet Union disintegrates, rogue elements on both sides of the Iron Curtain join in a deadly plot to maintain their hold on power. Months later, international telephone intercepts trigger a CIA investigation into the nebulous codeword “Jabberwock.” Cameron Quinn, a veteran clandestine officer with a drinking problem, draws the task of tracking it down. After his superiors doubt Jabberwock’s importance, Quinn turns for help to a former FBI buddy, Burke Hill, whose tarnished career ended years earlier. For Hill, it becomes a quest to prove his own worth after an accident forces him to continue the investigation alone, without CIA sanction. With the help of Quinn’s daughter Lori, a former CIA operative, he discovers a multinational team of killers rehearsing on an island off the Florida coast. As official and unofficial forces work to stop them, Burke and Lori realize they hold the only hope of stopping a plot to assassinate the American and Russian presidents.

    Book Reviews:

     ”This is a change of pace for Chester Campbell, best known (to me, at least) for his Sid Chance PI novels. Here he’s working in the global intelligence thriller territory of Ludlum and Trevanian, but (I’m happy to say) with more character development. In the background is a world-changing conspiracy (in the waning days of the Cold War) to assassinate two opposing world leaders simultaneously — a plot hatched by intelligence agents on both sides and meticulously planned. The opposition comes down to two flawed men, one nearing the end of his career in intelligence and the other already out of the business, and happily so. Short chapters, great pacing, good characters, and high stakes. I really enjoyed this book.” Timothy Hallinan, best-selling author of the Poke Rafferty and Junior Bender series

    “The protagonist, Burke Hill, is an ex-FBI agent currently working as a professional photographer. As a favor to Cameron Quinn, an old CIA friend, he lets himself be drawn into a Byzantine scheme that will shock the world. Offbeat and fast-moving, BEWARE THE JABBERWOCK delivers step-by-step excitement in a world-class thriller marked by cross and double-cross. Burke Hill and three close friends defy death to stop the operation before it’s too late.” Pat Browning, author of Absinthe of Malice

    “As a long-time fan of Campbell’s Sid Chance and Greg McKenzie novels, I had high hopes for his first political thriller. BEWARE THE JABBERWOCK did not disappoint. Burke Hill, disgraced agent turned nature photographer, is a likable and believable hero, reluctantly drawn back into the dangerous and seductive intelligence game. Veteran agent Cameron Quinn is the flawed but sympathetic character who delivers Burke’s call to action. The writing is vivid and the plot convincing. It’s a smart, sharp read, one I found it difficult to put down.” Jaden Terrell, author of the Jared McKean Mysteries
