Described as a “gothic mystery of the finest order” (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 business deal 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 deion 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 deion 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 deions 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.

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.”

But war is real and likely here to stay, he will tell you. Worth thinking about, and deciding what you might do if it were your son or daughter out there. Or you.

These are the thoughts to grapple with in this story. They will make you hug your child a little tighter today, as you follow the Chief and Nick his Marine—just out of school and so proud to be serving his country—into the killing fields of hell.

Dark Fantasy/Paranormal Thriller – The Lerewood

The LerewoodThe Lerewood
By Andrea Churchill
Publisher: Kellan Publishing
ISBN: 978-1514645901
ASIN: B0104XBP1K
Genre: Dark fantasy, fantasy, horror, thriller, paranormal
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, epub

Legends speak of a place called Lerewood, an isolated little village set in the middle of an immeasurable, ghostly wood. The townspeople suffer from severe poverty and filth, living more like savage animals than a cultured civilization. However, despite the town’s inhuman conditions, the townspeople never seem to die from disease or starvation, and their numbers only seem to grow with each generation. No one knows the truth of how Lerewood came to be, but many secrets seem to revolve around an ancient, legendary creature that lives in the surrounding forest. They say she’ll hunt anyone who dares trespass onto her land; those who enter the forest never come back.

One middle aged man, Uallas, depressed and tired of abuse from his monstrous wife, decides to commit suicide by entering the wood. But when he steps foot into the mythical dark forest, Uallas finds that everything he ever knew about the town, and himself, were lies. These new discoveries only lead to more questions, where the truth can only be found in the mysterious, undiscovered world.

The Lerewood introduces the topics of natural evil, identity, and judgment, all while moving the reader with detailed personification. It is a tale of darkness, and will appeal to many readers with its rich, moody deions of the eerie, mythological forest.
