Deception in Savannah
by Charles Dougherty

Connie Barrera is ready to move on. She’s the business partner and mistress of a married doctor who runs a weight loss clinic, but she wants out. He’s not willing to buy her shares, so she resorts to extortion. The doctor has recently killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run accident to which the only witness other than Connie is a street hustler with attention deficit disorder and a photographic memory.

Connie threatens to disclose the doctor’s role in the accident, jeopardizing the thriving clinic. Unbeknownst to Connie, their major investor is the local drug kingpin who is confused by the antics of Connie and her alcohol-addled lawyer. The mobster decides that his empire is under attack by an unknown rival. His lethal attempts to eliminate the threat are frustrated by chance and the incompetence of his subordinates.

The police finally find the somewhat puzzled eyewitness who eventually recalls his clear but misplaced memory of the accident, and everyone’s plans begin to unravel.

Deception in Savannah is a character-driven novel set in the colorful old city of Savannah, Georgia. The author lends a native’s perspective on the city and its people to this tale of humor and intrigue.

Waiting For Dawn
by
Sonya Black

Description200 years ago, a war of greed and magic ravaged the world. Rain no longer falls; poisonous vines choke the land; clouds of dirt obscure the sky. One city survived the carnage, but the powerful walls that saved them have now trapped its people inside with rapidly dwindling resources. Amidst dark secrets, growing unrest, and the sudden outbreak of a mysterious plague, fate forces two adversaries to put their guilt and hatred aside. Alone and ill-equipped, they fight for a home that may or may not deserve to be saved.

The Blood King Conspiracy
by
David Leadbeater

DescriptionOnly Matt Drake's greatest nemesis - Coyote - knows all the rules, and nothing will stop her from destroying everything he loves. Not the destruction of the unwitting town that hosts the tournament, not the demolition in combat of its biggest hotel, not the battle that rages on the edge of town. Amidst the annihilation of the Ninth Division and the emergence of the Pythians as a significant enemy, Drake and the team must fight for their lives against not only their deadliest foe, but an army of mercenaries and each other, to determine who will be. . .
