THREE GRAVES FULL
by Jamie Mason
A Mysterious Galaxy Review
“The gallows humor of THREE GRAVES FULL isn’t for everyone, but if you can see hilarity in the circumstances of a man driven to impulsive murder who is suddenly the subject of a police investigation because of the not one but two murder victims whose bodies are discovered in his yard … neither of which is the corpse he buried … this dark crime novel may be for you. Mason has deft little touches in her debut, like the main police detectives’ home lives and insights into the kinds of lies we tell ourselves to manage the occasional horrors of day-to-day life, that make her an author to watch.”- Maryelizabeth

THE COFFIN BLIND
by Mark Robbins
“Overheard at a sportsman’s show:
‘What is a coffin blind?’
‘Something that hunters hide in when they hunt. The blinds are very deadly.’
‘For the ducks or the hunters?’
‘Sometimes for both.’ ”
Following a high-profile prisoner debacle, U.S. Federal Marshal Brant Sherman is assigned to join a task force in Concord, Mass., where a secretive group of animal rights terrorists has begun to carry out harrowing acts of retribution. But as the attacks escalate, Brant starts to question his role in the chain of terrible events. THE COFFIN BLIND a page-turner filled with engaging characters who work their way through a tightly plotted, memorable thrill ride for any reader willing to take it.
“Mark Robbins’ debut starts out with a bang and never lets up. THE COFFIN BLIND combines non-stop outdoor action, horrific violence, smartass humor, some surprisingly touching moments, and an engaging protagonist named Brant Sherman in a pedal-to-the-metal and joyfully non-PC crime novel.”- C.J. Box, New York Times bestselling author BLUE HEAVEN and BLOOD TRAIL
