Unholy Alliance
by Juliet B Madison

DI Frank Lyle Mysteries Book 3

The brutal murder of a curate at an ecumenical conference leads DI Lyle and his team to uncover the shocking and somewhat tragic past of the victim, Reverend Martin Hayes, whom no one appears to have known very well.

Assisted by Canon Thomas Rice, a former police officer, DI Lyle works his way through a tangled web, which leads to a recently released prisoner with a deep-seated hatred of the church. Can DI Lyle penetrate the unholy alliance formed between the ex con and a corrupt police officer? And will a little knowledge prove a dangerous thing?

This revised edition contains a taster excerpt from Murder in the Wings, the fourth DI Frank Lyle Mystery.

Married to Maggie
by
Jan Romes

DescriptionTexas playboy, Ty Vincent, heir to the Vincent Oil fortune needs a short-term wife to convince his grandfather and the Board of Directors that he's changing his ways so they'll name him CEO. Ditching an environmental conference in Atlanta to play in Reno, Ty suffers razor-sharp chest pains at the airport. The pains were becoming a common occurrence that started showing up after he lost his father in a fiery crash a year earlier. The woman who comes to his aid not only helps him with what she can only assume is a heart attack but she also fibs to keep airport security and paparazzi from descending on him. She's brilliant, unemployed and not his type which makes her the perfect choice for a temporary spouse. If he can ignore her extraordinary blue eyes then everything will go according to plan.

CSI East Coast Episode III
by
Roger Grubbs

DescriptionThe beautiful and brilliant CSI Agent Samantha Powers (Sam) along with her partner Jonathan West, a best selling novelist, are at it again. This time the stakes are higher than ever with bodies showing up daily. The only problem, law enforcement has a suspect but no way to prove it.

What begins as an apparent homicide turns out to be something totally unexpected. Before long bodies are showing up, and Sam is convinced they are all connected. While there are witnesses, something strange happens to each and every one of them.

Certain the city will panic if the killer isn’t stopped immediately, the mayor places the job of solving this crime squarely on Sam’s shoulders. Now under pressure and with the help of dedicated police officers, she and her partner work around the clock.

Before long they realize this serial killer is always one step ahead of the law. The only DNA evidence left at the scene matches the victim—until they finally get a big break. Minute amounts of skin found under the fingernail of a young woman reveal another source, a male. Now with a suspect in their sights, they set a trap; but what happens next will totally blow them away. See if you can follow the leads, but be prepared for a few surprises as you join us in this search for the elusive killer in CSI East Coast Episode III.


Mouth of the Rat
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionMy name is Samantha. I’m a novelist who seems to fall into unusual mysteries and ends up becoming part of and writing about them. It has made me semi-famous for stirring up and getting into trouble. This one almost got away from me because I had about a week to solve it and began to think maybe this one was unsolvable. It involved a murder, drugs, an ex-wife, an antique car collection, and the FBI.

The Charging Bull of Terry County
by
Carl Stevens

DescriptionBicentennial Day for America is going to be a long one for LarryTreegarden. There’s a fifth of Southern Comfort to kill before noon. There’s all the memory other people won’t let the fifth kill off. The woman who’s divorced him three times wants to talk. His older son wants to publish Granddad’s Civil War Journal. Everyone wants to talk war history with a World War II vet. The mayor wants Larry’s crane to lift the statue of a fictional hero into place in time for the fireworks. The only person not bothering him is his younger son shipped home from Viet Nam and resting for five years under a plain flat stone on the edge of town. This day will resonate with history – of one person, of one family, of one nation shaped by war– and all Larry wants is a little peace.
