After surviving ten brutal years behind bars, former homicide detective Reggie Swann’s conviction is finally overturned thanks to her tenacious mother, a new forensic test and a very clever lawyer. She quickly discovers that getting her old life back won’t be as easy as she hoped. To many, she is still as the media had dubbed her: ‘Black Swann – murderer and cop-gone-bad’. The police still consider her to be a suspect, Reggie’s husband has remarried and the real killer is still on the loose.

Before Reggie can return to Toronto and solve the crime that ruined her life, she reluctantly agrees to investigate a murder in her home town, only to uncover evidence that suggests the two cases which are separated by ten years and three thousand miles might somehow be connected. Will anyone believe the wild theories of the disgraced detective? The real murderer does; he framed her once, this time Reggie Swann will have to die!

Mystery/Gothic Mystery – Eye of the Moon

Eye of the MoonEye of the Moon
By Ivan Obolensky
Publisher: Smith-Obolensky Media
Release Date: February 6, 2018
ISBN: 978-1947780002
ASIN: B0771WLMXF
Genre: Mystery, Gothic Mystery, Thriller
Formats Available For Review: Paperback ARC (Limited Quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), PDF, .MOBI, EPUB (via download from BookFunnel)

Described as a “gothic mystery of the finest order, Eyes Wide Shut meets Agatha Christie” (IndieReader), an “ingeniously constructed… engrossing tale of mystery and magic” (Kirkus Reviews), “gripping, intense, thorough. Everything I wanted in a thriller, and then some.” (Nick Thacker, author). “In ambiance it rivals ‘Downton Abbey’, but the plot tells a far more intense and shocking story.” (Tom Hyman, author). “Filled with hidden motives, mysterious relics, and sinister unknowns, ‘Eye of the Moon’ evokes the drama of ‘Dynasty’ with the atmosphere of Manderley.” (Jennifer Whitman, professional bookseller, Barnes & Noble).

This debut mystery/thriller follows Percy and Johnny, raised like brothers but fractured from a past trade gone terribly wrong, as they attend a five-day weekend house party celebrating a notable anniversary of Johnny’s parents. The initial concerns laid out in the first chapter swiftly morph into something far more sinister as they discover Johnny’s aunt Alice may have been murdered, and everyone in their party of family and friends have secrets and high-stakes agendas. Suddenly thrust into the center of the maelstrom, Percy has to face demons (literally and figuratively) and discovers true friendship, redemption, and love.

“… Obolensky conjures a remarkably imaginative tale, seamlessly juxtaposing the quotidian and the magical in a way that renders the latter mesmerizingly plausible. Johnny and Percy’s headlong march into the occult world that may have destroyed Alice is shockingly inadvisable and yet seems to make sense all the same. In addition, the author has a morbid gift for the description of human turpitude that simultaneously inspires both revulsion and awe… Alice’s complex character powerfully emerges as the plot’s tonal center, a bewitching amalgam of moral strength, intellectual vitality, and a lust for life. Likewise, Stanley is far more than meets the eye, and Obolensky skillfully portrays him with literary restraint, leaving the reader to deliciously wonder if he’s truly a friend or a secret foe… the story as a whole remains a transfixing one, ingeniously constructed. Despite its length, an engrossing tale of mystery and magic.” –Kirkus Reviews

“A gothic mystery set in 1977–involving the occult, stolen treasure, family secrets, and financial sabotage–‘Eye of the Moon’ is sumptuous in its descriptions of white-tie dinner parties and sexual tensions with baronesses, and sharp in its maneuvering of several secret puzzles at once.

“When Johnny Dodge knocks on Percy’s door and asks him to help uncover whether they’ve accidentally drunk the bottles of Chateau Lafite 1959 that Johnny’s parents were saving for their anniversary, Percy should have known that more than fine wine would be opened during a weekend in Rhinebeck, the Dodge family estate that always felt a bit peculiar. Soon the best friends are deep in a mystery involving the questionable death of Johnny’s aunt Alice, the occult, hidden paternity, and high-stakes financial risk–all over the course of a weekend party at the unsettling estate.

“The mysteries are finely woven together and readers must think fast on their feet if they hope to keep up with the meticulous minds of the weekend guests. Percy is a capable protagonist for this high-stakes maneuvering, and half of the fun is reading his descriptions of the five-course meals served by Dagmar and the fine liquors decanted by Stanley, who run the house for the Dodges. The style occasionally sounds better fit for the 1940’s than the 1970’s, but it fits the tone of the book…” -IndieReader, 4.7 stars, IR approved

Crime Thriller – PREDICTABLE VIOLENCE

PREDICTABLE VIOLENCEPREDICTABLE VIOLENCE
By Gillean Campbell
Published: August 2017
ISBN: 978-1549542886
ASIN: B0747NSC6K
Genre: Crime Thriller / Detective / Mystery / Psychological Thriller
Formats Available For Review: Kindle

The plot of Predictable Violence is intelligent and full of twists, with a reveal of whodunit that will shock. If you love gripping detective thrillers with a jaw-dropping ending, this book is a must for you!

Mackenzie Anderson’s husband and two-year old daughter were shot and killed when Mack was only nineteen years old. When the police stopped trying to find the murderer, Mack began working with a private investigator. But, the murderer was a ghost. Mack had no way of knowing then that in a fluke of life she would come face-to-face with the murderer six years later. Now, she must decide if she will risk everything for vengeance.

As a homicide detective with the Idaho State Police, Mack lives her life being a champion for the dead. When she’s called in to lead the investigation of a triple homicide with no physical evidence and a nine-year old witness, the case seems impossible. Who could carry out such brutality? And why?

The debut novel from Gillean Campbell, Predictable Violence, is a new addition to the great police procedural tradition of Robert Bryndza, Robert Dugoni, Patricia Gibney, and Angela Marsons.

What customers are saying about Predictable Violence

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! WOW!! Just — WOW! Amazing murder mystery! WordsAPlanty – Charla White on Oct 27, 2017
I enjoy mysteries and thrillers, but Campbell has created a complex, likable, respected and realistic character. I started this book and had it finished in two days because I could NOT put it down! It is not a book that one can read whenever – it’s just not possible! You CANNOT put it down once you get started!!!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Ann Purdy on Oct 23, 2017
“Great book! I enjoyed the strong female protagonist, the pace, and the character development. A little romance thrown in didn’t hurt. Great lead up to the surprising ending. Definitely recommend this–had a tough time putting it down.”

5.0 out of 5 stars It was amazing Jessyca Garcia on Oct 18, 2017
“I really enjoyed reading “Predictable Violence” by Gillean Campbell. I loved the characters of Mack and Sigurd. It has been a while since I read a book that I did not want to put down. This book made me lose sleep but it was well worth it. I hope Campbell continues to write because she definitely has talent. So, if you like a good murder mystery, then this is the book for you!”

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Wonderful!!!! Rebecca Hawkins on Oct 11, 2017
“I could not put this book down. I am finishing up at 2 AM. The story has many twist and turns but are easy to follow because the writer lays things out clearly and believably. The ending is a real shocker. Did not see it coming. I love this book. Wish it could become a series. Not ready for it to end.”

Christian Murder Mystery – The Actress

The ActressThe Actress–A Christian Murder Mystery
By Michael Hicks Thompson
Publisher: Shepherd King Publishing
Published: February 2017
ISBN: 978-0984528240
ASIN: B01N1O18CH
Genre: Christian Murder Mystery
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), pdf, download to kindle from NetGalley

Early 1960s. The most famous actress in America, Talllulah Ivey, is in the Mississippi Delta to film a controversial move. A prominent local citizen is shot and killed outside her bedroom window. A note is found clenched in the dead man’s hand. The note holds the key to Ivey’s guilt or innocence. Was it self-defense? Murder? Or something else? Martha investigates the who, what, and why in this twisty, suspenseful murder mystery, embedded with a Paulinian allegory.

This story could be told only by me—Martha McRae. I’m the publisher and sole writer for the Bethel County Gazette.

I also run a boarding house in Solo, Mississippi. We’re just a dot on a map in the center of the Delta. Land so level and wide you could see the sun rise in the east and set in the west. Cotton and cornfields stretched as far as our eyes could see.

We’d always been a speck of a town–too small for any stop signs, much less a stoplight.

Somehow, Solo seemed to maintain a constant 310 souls. Births replacing deaths.

Deaths. We had more than our fair share three years ago when Satan paid us a visit. You can read about those murders in The Rector.

Here we are again, though, in the land of rich stories and good dirt.

Only this time, there’s a celebrity in our midst.

The Solo series reads like Agatha Christie and C.S. Lewis collaborated on a series of murder mysteries that include theology and an allegory. Think of Aslan in Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Aslan represents Jesus. Biblical characters in the Solo series are Jesus, Martha, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul, and Satan.

Ready for adventure in the snowy Colorado mountains, Cecelia Gage is thrilled to be employed as the live-in housekeeper for her favorite bestselling author. The twenty-five-year-old doesn’t count on Mark Andrews being so prickly, nor becoming part of the small town gossip centering on the celebrity. Neither does she expect to become involved in Andrews family drama and a relationship with Simon Lindley, Mark’s oh so good-looking best friend. And certainly, Cecelia has no idea she’ll be mixed up in a murder investigation because of this job.

Will Cecelia’s faith in God get her through all the trouble that lies ahead?
