A Soul Defiled
by Billy Ray Chitwood

Bailey Crane Mystery Book 5

"A Soul Defiled - A Bailey Crane Mystery" is Book 5 in the 'Bailey Crane Mystery Series.' Each of the Bailey Crane books can be read independently of the other. Each succeeding book shows the natural progression of the central character (aging, loves, experiences).

Bailey's intent is fun and sun on the beautiful Sea of Cortez, but an old friend's request for help changes his immediate plans: the Homeowners Association at the lovely Mar y Sol resort is experiencing some financial problems and its treasurer has just been murdered. His friend's request for assistance leads to some very scary moments for our southern sleuth. Kidnapped twice, battered, bruised, Bailey finds it all in this caper --- murder, money laundering scams, and betrayal. There is a man of intrigue that brings another dimension to the story, and the climatic ending to the tale is riveting, bringing with it an emotional catharsis for our hero. Bailey goes through the mazes, eventually finds his bad guys but he is left with the knowledge that friendship can be fragile and tentative.

Seduction

Darlene Deluca

DescriptionThey say, 'lightning doesn't strike twice.' But they’re wrong.

Claire Stapleton is living proof. First, she loses her beloved son to war. Then, her husband to another woman. As the life she’s known implodes, she struggles to pick up the pieces – to fit in. And in a small community like Whitfield, that’s harder than she ever dreamed.

by
Penny Childs

DescriptionNoah Rivers had lived through his own worst nightmare. He had lost his wife and young daughter to a car crash. He had seen their mangled bodies in the wreckage.

But, as we all know… all good things must come to an end…

Slow Falling
by
George Wier

DescriptionWhen the old man who is covered in dirt walks into the country honky-tonk and says "The Falling", right before dropping dead, Bill Travis has to penetrate the gathering dark cloak of secrecy surrounding his death and get to the truth before a team of nuclear regulators can rake the entire incident under the carpet. Bill, with his former partner, Hank Sterling, who has now been "recalled to life", must make a mad dash across the desolate West Texas landscape to save the life of Moe Keithley, a Harley-riding bankruptcy lawyer who is in over his head and may very well be the most radioactive man in the Northern Hemisphere.

Jon Batson

DescriptionWhen Starwort Bacchus finds herself running from her landlord, skipping out on the rent, she jumps aboard an automatic repair vessel and hitches a ride to the next port. But the search for her father's legacy, the inheritance her uncle nearly decimated, takes her to planets where friends and enemies are hard to identify, and her best ally is a computer. With a pocket full of "Universals" and a ceramic blade strapped to her thigh, she travels the darkness looking for a home. Instead she finds a growing list of places she cannot go to again, including a place she has never been - Earth.

Come Clean
by
Terri Paddock

DescriptionJustine is trying to cope with the desperate loneliness she feels now her twin brother, Joshua, no longer lives at home. After trying to drown her feelings with her first ever experiment with alcohol, she is woken early by her mother one Sunday morning. Bundled into the car by her livid parents, Justine is driven to Come Clean, a rehabilitation centre for drug addicts and alcoholics. Confused, vulnerable and covered with vomit from her first hangover, Justine is forcibly admitted to cure her "addiction". There she begins a strict boot-camp routine of humiliation and discipline, where they attempt to strip her of her identity in order to rebuild her a better person. Justine escapes the daily torture at the centre by talking to Joshua in her head, reflecting back on their childhood and trying to puzzle out why her brother was a tortured soul...and why he chose to leave her.
