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).

Crime Fiction – Her Name Is Mercie

Her Name Is MercieHer Name Is Mercie
By Chris Roy
Published: May 2018
ASIN: B07C4WDY2H
Genre: Crime Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Mobi, pdf

Mercie Hillbrook lives a simple, quiet life working as a gas station attendant. Then her parents are killed. Her home is taken. The people responsible are excused for just doing their job. When an attempt to get justice her way lands her in trouble with the law, Mercie realizes she still has something to lose: her own life.

Then she finds reason to believe her parents were murdered… and she doesn’t care anymore.

“Chris Roy has written a fast paced taught kill thriller with a strong and unreliable main protagonist. Mercie has everything taken from her – her parents, her home, her job, her inheritance, her sanity, and finally, her freedom. But fate and a Vietnamese boy called Kermit lend hope to a cornered and dangerous woman and as Mercie contemplates her survival and revenge she is sure of one only thing – a man has his muscles, and a woman has her mind.

“Roy delivers on the edge of your seat story-telling with rough edges, crooked cops and a tiny light at the end of the tunnel that is never quite extinguished.” – Tom Vater, Journalist, Co-founder of Crime Wave Press

Crime/Mystery Short Stories – Severed Heads

Severed HeadsSevered Heads
By William Goodman
Publisher: Lulu
Published: July 2017
ISBN: 978-1483473024
ASIN: B074JH26PX
Genre: Crime Fiction, Short Stories, Mystery
Formats Available For Review: epub, pdf

Three short stories that form one cohesive story within the intermissions.

Story one: The Hearts of the Helpless, is a butterfly effect. It shows the destruction of five main characters. Each character is indirectly harmed by the character’s before them.

Story two: We DIE in gray Skies, is a story about a rapist. He uses his childhood to justify his actions. Gray resembles the contrast between right and wrong.

Story three: The Wicked Within, is a collection of stories. It’s about all the horrific acts we do or think about doing on a daily basis. Central theme centers around vanity.

It’s wrapped around an opener, closer, and two intermissions that tell a completely different story. It’s a hopeless romantic love story of finding your lost or severed “head”.

Mystery – The Daughter

Publisher: Acorn Moon Press

Genre: Mystery
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, mobi

On an Ozark summer night, three drunk teenagers drive away from an isolated rural graveyard in an abandoned Mercedes. They’ve found the care while looking for car keys lost in the brush. The inevitable police stop reveals blood in the car—a lot of blood. The car belongs to Shara McGregor, Blue Creek’s “golden girl” whose face adorns the billboard touting the advantages of the local community college.

When Richard Carter digs into Shara’s background, he and the financially strapped Hawthorn County Sheriff’s Department are “aided” by a friend of the girl’s mother, former State Senator Willis Sparkes. The old pol uses his influence and money to aid the county in his pursuit of justice—but is that the only reason that he wants to stay close to the investigation?

As he digs into the case, Richard becomes enthralled with the girl he has never met, seeing in the brilliant Shara McGregor what his own daughter may become. He is not the only one to be enthralled by Shara. A broken-hearted high school sweetheart, a clumsy would-be suitor, a nephew of the sheriff, an over-the-hill redneck, the manager at the minimart where she worked, and who knows how many classmates all wanted to get closer to her.

This is a tale of lust, blackmail, murder, and ultimate revenge.

Suspense/Thriller – The Fisherman’s Lily

When Lily Dietz, an ambitious yet short-tempered Asian-American NYC homicide detective, and longtime partner John Fremont begin to work a unique but gruesome murder case, cryptic clues in the evidence start to link with Lily’s dark and troubling past—one deeply imprinted with many psychological and emotional issues.

Borderline manic-depressive and a self-destructive alcoholic, Lily is strikingly beautiful and spoiled by her younger brother, CJ, a NBA All-Star basketball Knicks player, due to guilt uprooting from their own family history; separations of heart-wrenching losses and disappointments. The hunt for the killer escalates when the detectives discover more than one murder. Someone with cruel and twisted intentions motivated by a taste for sophistication yet also deprivation is targeting and brutally mutilating Asian-American women. And somehow, the murderer knows Lily far too well.

Soon the game of cat-and-mouse becomes a thrilling chase from beginning to end, where Lily’s reality and the people in it begin to doubt her, not only as a detective but as a person. Who will be able to save this damaged soul? Or who will be the one to destroy it?
