Atlanta doesn’t have room for both an incomparable serial killer and the phenomenal homicide detective, Aisha Sawyer. The showdown is set with the killer’s first feat: murder by viral disease, contaminating a hip hop icon and a med student. The investigation sends Sawyer and her whole-snack partner after a logical mark, a surgeon with motive and the resume to fit the crime. Sawyer, however, defies logic and her sergeant.

Her investigative mojo is entrenched in the maternal instinct that makes woman the more advanced gender and Sawyer a more advanced detective. She probes the hip hop side of the double murder where shady outliers present unexpected twists. All the while, the death toll rises. The killer’s only clue is the common immoral trait the victims share; this killer is a vigilante – the victims’ karma returning to settle the books.

To preserve the rule of law, Detective Sawyer wields her black girl magic like the Jedi force, not only for Lady Justice, but against her provocative sister, Karma, who ultimately sets her sights upon Sawyer, for what she too must atone.

“A taut murder tale… refreshingly strong African American women” – (Kirkus Reviews).

“…stylish and heavy-hitting detective thriller…” – (Foreword Reviews).

“This is a cool, well-written mystery with enough literary verve to keep armchair detectives guessing…” – (BlueInk Reviews).

When Jax Duncan stumbles across a mob execution, she becomes the next target for the hit man and the prime suspect for Special Agent Lincoln Montgomery. She decides to hide out until the case is solved and her name cleared.

In each new city she tries to make a life for herself, but no place feels safe. She can still hear the violent confrontation, smell the blood . . . she still watches over her shoulder everywhere she goes, terrified of being discovered . . . eliminated.

Now her worst fears have come true. The hit man has found her. And so has Special Agent Montgomery, the one person with the power to either lock her up or clear her name–if only he’ll believe her.

Unwilling to take that chance, she must run again. Only this time she has an added burden . . . a wounded FBI agent who depends on her to keep him alive until he’s well enough to arrest her.

Duty Doesn’t Always Follow the Rules
Gray Girl, Book 2
By Susan I. Spieth
ISBN: 978-1500929770

Genre: Military fiction, coming of age, women’s action/adventure
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers, bloggers in the USA), pdf, mobi, kindle

One drives off a cliff. An alarming number of others resign. Something at the military academy is causing the unusually high attrition of women cadets. Jan Wishart aims to find out before she’s the next statistic at West Point. Her second year at the formerly all male citadel should be the fun year. But when one friend shows signs of abuse and another friend suddenly resigns, Jan’s coming of age year becomes anything but enjoyable. The culture of hazing and harassment must be addressed, but it’s almost impossible to get results through the chain of command. In a closed academy environment, sometimes the best way to call attention to an issue is to leak it the press.

In order to fulfill her duty, Jan must break with tradition and the longstanding culture of the United States Military Academy. Yet not everything is as it seems. Once again Jan’s worldview is about to be upended by the secrets of West Point.

2015 KINDLE BOOK AWARD semi-finalist!

Historical Fiction – From Peasant to Emperor

From Peasant to EmperorFrom Peasant to Emperor
The Life of Liu Bang
By Victor Cunrui Xiong
Publisher: Airiti Press
Published: October 2018
ISBN: 978-9866286711
ASIN: B07H95RPSD
Genre: Historical Fiction, Biographical Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf, Can be sent to kindle from NetGalley

This fictionalized biography, allegedly written by the first-century historian Ban Gu, tells one of the least likely rages-to-power stories, in which a penniless peasant rose to become the founder of the mighty Han dynasty that rivaled Rome as one of the two great powers of Eurasia.

When the eponymous protagonist, Liu Bang, launched a rebellion in 209 BCE, he was a poor peasant of 47 with a reputation as a ne’er-do-well, a womanizer, and a drunkard. He seemed to have a slim chance at success at a time when all the heroes in the realm contended for power and dominance. Against all odds, however, he trounced his rivals to found the Han dynasty and went on to quell numerous rebellions that challenged his rule. By the time of his death, a solid foundation had been laid for a great empire that was to last 400 years.
