The Hum and the Shiver eBook is Now on Sale for $2.99

The Hum and the Shiver by Alex BledsoeAlex Bledsoe‘s Long Black Curl, the latest in the Tufa novels series, is due out on May 26. This month we are making it easy to get started with the series by releasing the first ebook, The Hum and the Shiver, for only $2.99.*

About The Hum and the Shiver: Named one of the Best Fiction Books of 2011 by Kirkus Reviews, The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe is an enchanting tale of music and magic older than the hills. . . .

No one knows where the Tufa came from, or how they ended up in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Enigmatic and suspicious of outsiders, the Tufa live quiet lives in the hills and valleys of Cloud County. While their origins may be a mystery, there are hints of their true nature buried in the songs they have passed down for generations.

Bronwyn Hyatt, a pure-blood Tufa, has always insisting on doing things her own way, regardless of the consequences. Even though Tufa rarely leave Cloud County, she enlisted in the Army to escape the pressures of Tufa life—her family, her obligations as a First Daughter, and her dangerous ex-boyfriend. But after barely surviving a devastating ambush that killed most of her fellow soldiers, Private Hyatt returns to Cloud County wounded in body and in spirit. But danger lurks in the mountains and hollows of her childhood home. Cryptic omens warn of impending tragedy, and a restless “haint” lurks nearby, waiting to reveal Bronwyn’s darkest secrets. Worst of all, Bronwyn has lost touch with the music that was once a vital part of her identity.

Now Bronwyn finds the greatest battle to be right here at home, where her obligations struggle with her need for freedom, and if she makes the wrong choice, the consequences could be deadly for all the Tufa. . . .

Starred Reviews: A Scourge of Vipers by Bruce DeSilva

A Scourge of Vipers by Bruce DeSilva“…this excellent addition features a bit of romance, a lot of action, plenty of snappy repartee, and social commentary on the fate of newspaper journalism and the corrupting role of money in the political process. Quality all the way.”

Bruce DeSilva’s A Scourge of Vipers got starred reviews in Library Journal and in Publishers Weekly!

Here’s the full Library Journal review, from the January 1 issue:

Rhode Island Governor Fiona McNerney proposes the legalization of sports betting to reduce the state’s budget deficit. The mob opposes the idea because it would eat into its bookmaking business, and sports oversight groups claim it would open up games to dishonesty. After Atlantic City mobsters show up in Providence with bags of cash, presumably to influence legislators, veteran newspaper reporter Liam Mulligan investigates. When a state legislator and several other people turn up dead, Mulligan soon becomes a prime suspect in several murders. VERDICT DeSilva’s Edgar and Macavity Award-winning books (most recently Providence Rag) is a consistently well-written hard-boiled series. Unfortunately, few of the regular characters have roles here. Still, this excellent addition features a bit of romance, a lot of action, plenty of snappy repartee, and social commentary on the fate of newspaper journalism and the corrupting role of money in the political process. Quality all the way.

Here’s the full Publishers Weekly review, from the February 2 issue:

Edgar-winner DeSilva’s excellent fourth Liam Mulligan novel (after 2014’s Providence Rag) finds the Providence, R.I., investigative journalist on hard times professionally. His newspaper, The Dispatch, has been reduced to a shell of its former self, publishing fluff rather than substance and largely staffed by wet-behind-the-ears newcomers. His jerk of an editor, Charles Twisdale, is more concerned with the bottom line and advertising revenue than reporting the news, leaving Mulligan feeling like a dinosaur on the verge of extinction. But if that’s to be his fate, the reporter is determined to go down swinging, pursuing the truth behind a series of murders that appear linked to the governor, colorfully known as “Attila the Nun,” who hopes to solve the state’s public-pension crisis by legalizing sports gambling. The lean prose and clever plotting will remind hard-boiled fans of Loren Estleman’s Amos Walker novels.

A Scourge of Vipers will be published on April 7.

Larry Bond’s First Team: Soul of the Assassin eBook is Now on Sale for $2.99

Larry Bond's First Team: Soul of the Assassin by Larry Bond and Jim DeFeliceThe ebook for Larry Bond’s First Team: Soul of the Assassin by Larry Bond and Jim DeFelice is now on sale for $2.99!*

About Larry Bond’s First Team: Soul of the Assassin:When the CIA is tipped off that one of its most wanted men is going to be in Bologna, Italy, Ferg and the First Team are tasked to apprehend him at any cost–but under no circumstances can Italian authorities be made aware. There is just one problem: no one has seen the man in over ten years, and he is only known by a decades-old code-name: T-Rex. This assassin has been involved in the murder of at least a dozen prominent western leaders, and the grapevine reveals he’s been called out of a long, silent hiding for one more major strike.

Ferg and the Team arrive in Italy, where they recruit the help of a beautiful French Samaritan named Jane Foucoult. Her knowledge leads them on a search that goes behind the scenes of a conference on genetics and onto a trail to a sinister Russian scientist, a leader at the forefront of biological-weapons research.

Splitting the team in two, Ferg and Guns go after the ghosts they speculate could be T-Rex, and Rankin and Thera get on the scientist’s tail. But what they uncover is way beyond a single assassination attempt, and they find themselves about to go head-to-head with the most lethal terrorist cells known to man.

The Kill Zone eBook is Now on Sale for $2.99

The Kill Zone by David HagbergThe ebook for The Kill Zone by David Hagberg is now on sale for $2.99!*

About The Kill Zone: The President of the United States has appointed Kirk McGarvey interim director of the CIA while his nomination winds its way through Congressional hearings. But what should have been the culmination of McGarvey’s career, has activated a twenty-year-old Russian plot sponsored by his former archenemy, General Baranov. Now, McGarvey is in the Kill Zone. He finds himself part of a plot that does know the Cold War is over, a plot that comes at McGarvey full throttle–from the grave of an enemy McGarvey had buried decades before.

Step by inexorable step, the assassin—a sleeper agent for all these years—is awakened from a holding state of mind. Brainwashed by KGB doctors to pull the trigger, the killer has unknowingly waited for a signal that has finally arrived.

And as the story races toward its breathtaking climax, it’s becoming clearer to McGarvey and his associates that the killer is someone within his inner circle.

A colleague or a friend.

Somebody very close.

Is there anyone McGarvey can trust when trust itself can kill him?

Starred Review: Icefall by Gillian Philip

Icefall by Gillian Philip“The nearly flawless fourth and final volume in Philip’s Rebel Angels series (after Wolfsbane) is faster-paced and sharper than its predecessors… Philip takes no prisoners in this last battle of the Veil’s final days and excellently ties up loose threads by revealing cleverly hidden connections.”

Gillian Philip’s Icefall got a starred review in Publishers Weekly!

Here’s the full review, from the January 5 issue:

The nearly flawless fourth and final volume in Philip’s Rebel Angels series (after Wolfsbane) is faster-paced and sharper than its predecessors. Sithe clann captain Seth MacGregor, lover Finn, son Rory, and the rest of their people are in exile in our world, four years after escaping a massive attack by the dark queen, Kate NicNiven. She still wants Rory and his power, which she plans to use to control the dying Veil that separates worlds. Seth is gradually losing his soul to Kate, but he still hesitates to return to Kate’s world until she begins killing and kidnapping clan members. Once back home, Seth and company realize that Kate’s forces greatly outnumber theirs, and she has obliterated nearly everyone who might have joined the fight against her. The few remaining potential allies could prove as deadly to the clann as the queen herself. Clann and queen clash in the climax of centuries of warfare, as two worlds slide into darkness. Philip takes no prisoners in this last battle of the Veil’s final days and excellently ties up loose threads by revealing cleverly hidden connections.

Icefall will be published on March 24.

About The Seven Sins: To Dream…To Dare..To Win…

The ancient motto, inscribed in Latin on a mysterious golden medallion, recovered from the ruins of the Roman Empire, has guided Michael Tiranno to heights few men have achieved. Once an orphaned farm boy in his native Sicily, Michael made millions by mastering the intricate world of high finance, and is now the fabulously wealthy owner of Las Vegas’ The Seven Sins, the grandest and most extravagant casino in the world. The lavish resort embodies the personal philosophy fueled by his lust for power: the greater the risk, the greater the reward.

But he also has secrets, secrets that he and Naomi Burns, his driven corporate attorney and confidante, have gone to great lengths to bury. When an enemy from the past threatens to undermine everything he has built, his dark history must now be uncovered. Together, they must tear open painful scars in Michael’s heart and soul to discover the true identity of their unknown foe—before all of Las Vegas pays the price for Michael Tiranno’s realized dreams.

The Seven Sins is a globe-spanning saga of one man’s spectacular rise from rags to riches, the sins that brought him there, and the insidious vendetta that may cost him everything.
