Marie Lu Author- LEGEND


      by Marie Lu

      Mysterious Galaxy Staff Review- “This young adult dystopian romance murder mystery offers readers many pleasures, as they get to know Day and June and their colliding worlds.  Day is a notorious outlaw, constantly a thorn in the side of the ruling authorities- authorities who are training June to be the best in her class of law enforcers, with the primary goal of stopping Day.  But June and Day discover the society they live in may be based on a lie, one that those in power will go to any end to maintain, with tragic consequences to both their families.  Marie’s debut is a stunner, and even the physical presentation is a winner, with different fonts used to tell Day and June’s stories.” – MeH

L. D. Bergsgaard Author- WHILE OTHERS SLEEP


by L. D. Bergsgaard

Crime Bureau Agents Marini and Crosby find their trip to Minnesota’s Boundary Water Canoe Area cut short when they stumble upon a naked body being devoured by a pack of wolves. Preserving what they can at the primitive crime scene, they leave with little more than a bag of bones in the bottom of the canoe. The search to identify the victim and piece together his last hours takes the agents down a rugged trail of political intrigue to a drug cartel intent on cornering the marijuana market in the United States. Despite the legal roadblocks and political pressures, Doc Martini leads a team of agents to prevail, sometimes outside the fog lines of the law, and brings the murderous cartel to justice.

Russ Graham Author- DEADLY DIVERSIONS, A Murder/Mystery Novel


      by Russ Graham

      DEADLY DIVERSIONS is a murder/mystery novel set in the unique world of all-cargo airlines and the crews that fly their planes.

      When three airline captains die in mysterious mishaps on layovers in different European cities, alarm bells go off at the International Pilots Federation’s headquarters.  Enter Don Carling, a private investigator and former airline pilot.  His task is twofold: one, to determine if the accidental verdicts are valid, and two, look for any evidence the deaths are connected. There are  disturbing similarities, he finds, but no concrete evidence of a link.

      His investigation stalls…until a fourth captain is murdered, this time in London.  The murder provides fresh leads, leads that supply Carling with clues to reinforce his growing conspiracy theory.  But proving it is another matter, and key pieces of the puzzle are still missing as  Flight 213,  a 747 freighter,  takes off from London bound for Toronto with, Carling fears, a potential fifth victim in command.

      Interpol, Scotland Yard, the Russian Mafia, a femme fatale, and a colorful yet believable cast of characters all have roles in the cleverly crafted plot – one that gains momentum with every page and ends with an unforeseen and foreboding twist.

      A twist that the reader, with the advantage of hindsight, might decide is more truth than fiction..
