Genre: Contemporary Paranormal Suspense Thriller

Amy Bree’s reckless actions result in death and her dismissal from the FBI. A visit from a mysterious priest propels her back into the fray, as she is partnered with an ex-spy, with fearsome computer skills, and tasked to hunt down and kill the serial killer known as the Blood Sucker.

Their quarry is not what they expect:
old, very old, and needs blood to survive.
The body count rises…
and the hunters become the hunted!

The CULL is a new twist on a classic genre: the vampires are the result of human DNA mutation, do not have fangs, and are as real as science can make them.

Contemporary Fiction – Born Under the Dark Sun: Chasing Freedom

Born Under the Dark Sun: Chasing FreedomBorn Under The Dark Sun
By Vladimir A Shvartsman
Publisher: Xlibris
ISBN: 978-1436316613
Pages: 364
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

Chasing Freedom” is a powerful story illustrated by a collection of treasured works in oil by an ordinary human being living an extraordinary life. The artist used a brush to paint for the first time in 1975, though he never attended an art school. Unsurprisingly, he published his first book “Colors of Truth” in 2000 written in English, though no English classes were ever attended. He can truly be called self-taught. “The Colors of Truth” consists of color reproductions of his forty-six paintings and some stories from his life. So far, seven books were published. He has being an extremely occupied with running a small high-tech company, writing, and painting. Much of his time spent on writing technical and scientific papers, technical manuals and promoting his innovative products.

“Chasing Freedom,” the first book of a trilogy “Born Under the Dark Sun” is a collection of stories reflecting his life till the time of emigration, published in 2008. Born in Russia but not Slovak, he inherited hundredths years old, countrywide anti-Semitism with a tragic outcome of his father dying in his hands, mortally wounded by a policeman. His scientific investigation of an origin of living cell communications turned into a conflict with Communistic Dogmas and consequently with the KGB. That and others were sources of his pains and struggles. He wrote, “I had only two choices to roar like a wounded creature or start painting. I selected painting. A canvas was my best friend. It had never complained if my story was too long and if I had to start it over and over again.” Newly gained habits in no way could help improving his standing with the authorities.

Memoir – (1413 of) Those Words

(1413 of) Those Words1413
By Anna Ligtenberg
Publisher: AnnaLovesBooks Inc.
ISBN: 978-0988510203
Published: November 2012
Pages: 274
Genre: Memoir

Childhood abuse and decades of unsuccessful grappling for an elusive recovery.

Anna has given up. She’s looked back, taken tally, and decided that she can’t win. There is only so much that a person can pack up and carry along before the weight begins to wear them down. Anna begins her story on that threshold.

Putting her life story onto paper is just one step in her plan to opt out of a life that has finally become more burden than she thinks she can bear. She’d be the first to tell you that she has only a nodding acquaintance with sanity, so when her suicidal plans take a wide and sudden detour, this just seems par for the course. There is no straight line that cannot be avoided.

A short stroll down Memory Lane, holding hands with her high school sweetheart, seems like a nice way to wrap things up before checking out. Is it? Or is the first sentence of her intended suicide note more accurate than she could have known when she wrote it:

“the answers to everything in the present are hidden away in (the) past.”

In 1982, they would have sworn it would last forever.
In 1984, they would have sworn it was over for good.

Reconnecting online, Mike and Anna
discovered that they’d been right, all those years ago.Even before they saw each other again, they knew. Nothing had changed. The only real love either had ever had was the love they’d shared.

Could they reclaim it?
What were the odds, in 2012, that, this time, it actually could last forever?

Legal Thriller – Blood Spiral

Blood Spiralblood spiral
By G. T. Matteson
Publisher: Croydon Press
ISBN: 978-0615496436
Published: January 2012
Pages: 332
Genre: Legal Thriller

BLOOD SPIRAL is a legal thriller that deals with America’s thirst for justice and, not coincidentally, its thirst for violence as well. Imagine the joy you feel as you are acquitted of murder. Now fast forward a few months as the man who got you freed is about to exact the ultimate punishment for your crime. You are now a client of the high profile Philadelphia lawyer, Bradley “Hound Dog” Hunt.

On the verge of a complete mental breakdown as the story begins, Hunt is literally in the process of murdering two of his former clients – one by fire and one by starvation – while simultaneously defending a notorious group of child abusers, dubbed “The Frankford Four” by the local media. The lengthening string of gruesome murders gets the attention of a Los Angeles-based FBI agent named Frank Turbine, who was Hunt’s college roommate during their days at Penn. Spurred by his straight-laced partner, Turbine eventually has no choice but to consider Hunt’s connection to the victims as something more than coincidence.

From the moment Hunt commits a savage murder on Turbine’s turf, their paths are once again inexorably entwined. In order to save his friend – or at least give him a chance at redemption – Turbine must turn his back on all he’s sworn to uphold in order to save Hunt from prison. He must wash it away, forever, and get his partner to look the other way. It is a dear price. Turbine had loved the law “almost as a person,” but when Hunt chooses to try to take that step back into the light he cannot abandon him. By the time the story ends the characters have run an emotional gauntlet that has utterly transformed them, their actions still hanging about them like the fragile, silken strands of a spider’s web.
