The Devlin Deception
by Jake Devlin
Our Review of The Devlin Deception

Book One of The Devlin Quatrology

An Anti-Political Absurdist Thriller

"The explosive must-read of this decade"

The President, Congress, Supreme Court out, a no-BS dictator in. Snipers, assassins and spies (Oh, my!). A beautiful blonde, a bumbling beach bum, outrageous, offbeat humor, exotic erotics (Ooo!). A brain-twisting, gut-wrenching ride.

"Reads like Baldacci crossed with Monty Python."
"Nah, more like Clancy crossed with Mel Brooks."
(From two readers arguing with each other and the author.)

What could possibly go wrong when an iconoclastic, reclusive billionaire (nope, NOT Trump) buys and takes over the US federal government and starts to fix everything that's wrong with it? (Or what could go right?)

What could happen to the mellow, laid-back beach bum who's writing that story? (Hint: In part, a black helicopter and a few government agencies are involved.) And who is the beautiful woman who slithers into his life? What deep and painful secrets might be haunting her?

And what deep and possibly dark secrets might HE be hiding? But most of all, what's so damned funny? And how much sex is too much ... or too little?

Begin your journey through this absurdist blend of fiction and reality (and some obligatory gratuitous eroticism) and see for yourself. (Nobody has yet guessed the surprising twist in the Epilogue.)

If I Loved You
by
Jean C. Joachim

DescriptionDoes love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. A smart, successful financial advisor, disrespectful of tabloid superstars, Meg was shocked when she was selected to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed and overwhelmed by the charisma of her first client.

Without Any Warning
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionWhy did my friend disappear then a few years later mysteriously reappear on my doorstep? As an author all I want to do is rent a house on the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey to write my next novel in peace and quiet. Unable to resist digging deeper, I'm thrown into another web of intrigue, lies and cover-ups, involving two things from my past: one I thought I'd closed the book on and another whose book is mysteriously left open, two mysteries that I shockingly find are somehow connected. Without any warning I/m left to figure out why my storyline turns deadly and I'm caught in the crosshairs.

Split Image
by
Robert B. Parker

DescriptionThe body in the trunk was just the beginning.

Turns out the stiff was a foot soldier for local tough guy Reggie Galen, now enjoying a comfortable "retirement" with his beautiful wife, Rebecca, in the nicest part of Paradise. Living next door are Knocko Moynihan and his wife, Robbie, who also happens to be Rebecca's twin. But what initially appears to be a low-level mob hit takes on new meaning when a high-ranking crime figure is found dead on Paradise Beach.

Stressed by the case, his failed relationship with his ex-wife, and his ongoing battle with the bottle, Jesse needs something to keep him from spinning out of control. When private investigator Sunny Randall comes into town on a case, she asks for Jesse´s help. As their professional and personal relationships become intertwined, both Jesse and Sunny realize that they have much in common with both their victims and their suspects-and with each other.


The Silent Sea
by
Clive Cussler

DescriptionClive Cussler´s tales of the Oregon and its crew-"the clever, indefatigable Juan Cabrillo and his merry band of tough, tech-savvy fighting men and women" (Publishers Weekly)-have made fans of hundreds of thousands of readers. But the Oregon´s sixth adventure is its most remark­able one yet.

On December 7, 1941, five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington State make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, stumbles upon a shocking revelation of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition-and a curse that seems to have survived for more than five hundred years. If Cabrillo´s team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not . . . the only reward is death.


Bad Elephant Far Stream
by
Samuel Hawley

DescriptionBad Elephant Far Stream is an animal story for adults, a novel about the odyssey of a circus elephant, told from her own perspective, through her own eyes. Inspired by the true story of the circus elephant Topsy, it begins in the forests of Ceylon in the late 1860s with the capture of a baby elephant known to her own kind as Far Stream. She is taken to America and sent to the Adam Forepaugh Circus in Philadelphia. There, Far Stream embarks on a new life under the big top, appearing as “Topsy,” part of Forepaugh’s famed elephant dancing quadrille. She crisscrosses North America for thirty years with the circus, experiencing hardships, kidnapping, escapes and adventure. But when she comes to outweigh her keepers by a factor of forty—it’s hard not to hurt somebody. It’s hard not to be “bad.”

Trouble in Paradise
by
Robert B. Parker

DescriptionStiles Island is a wealthy and exclusive enclave separated by a bridge from the Massachusetts coast town of Paradise. James Macklin sees Stiles Island as the ultimate investment opportunity: all he needs to do is invade the island, blow up the bridge, and loot the island. To realize his investment, Macklin, along with his devoted girlfriend, Faye, assembles a crew of fellow ex-cons --all experts in their fields--including Wilson Cromartie, a fearsome Apache. James Macklin is a bad man--a very bad man. And Wilson Cromartie, known as Crow, is even worse.
