For the Guys


Good Morning Fans. How about something for the guys today? Ladies, no worries, I got you covered a little later on this morning!

Police Officer Frank O'Ryan's knee exploded when struck by a bullet from the kid's gun. It was a junk gun, something with duct tape wrapped around the handle. It worked just fine though and Frank was going down.
His sergeant squirmed on the pavement, bleeding out from a gunshot to the chest, begging Frank not to let him die. Frank raised his weapon and fired. One round. Center mass of the suspect's chest. It was just a kid.
Not-Even-Promoted Detective Vic Ajax is the most hated man in his small suburban police department. The kind of cop who spends more time with drug dealers and burglars than he does with other cops, probably because he likes the dirtballs better. The brass keeps Vic down in the basement by himself, until the day Frank O'Ryan returns to work and gets ordered to be his partner.
Together, they'll take a journey into the dark heart of The Job.
Superbia is a world filled with grandfatherly pedophiles and drug zombies who hide their stashes in dirty baby diapers. It's a place where a group of rogue cops rely on an angry six-foot bunny called the Truth Rabbit for really tough interrogations.
In Superbia, doing the right thing can be a fatal career move and the bosses are more dangerous than any crook on the street. Superbia is the funniest, scariest, most brutal account of what good cops truly experience and most of the world never gets to know.

Get Some

Anybody who has read Danny Birch's groundbreaking first novel, 'Clipped', will be expecting a fast-paced, sharply-written, emotionally charged gangster thriller, written in Danny's inimitably catchy, witty and streetwise style.

If so, prepare yourself for 'Get Some', a gangster revenge thriller that fizzes and crackles off the page like few others.

It is the tale of two childhood friends, Tommy and Joey, and of how they stand by each other in traumatic times. Tommy's trauma is to be betrayed by an army colleague to a militant group in Iraq and to be subjected to routine and gruesome torture. Pity his betrayer should Tommy manage to escape. And Joey's trauma? Ah, for that, you have to read this book.

Marine At War

In 2001 I was twenty seven years old, and about to go to war in far off Afghanistan. Ten years later, I finally have told the story. Here is a true tale of Heroes and Villians, of Young Men fighting and dying for a pure cause-the defense of their country. I have been part of something truly great in my life, and now, I hope I can pass that experience on to you.

Blind Switch: A Jack Doyle Mystery (Jack Doyle Series)

One-time amateur boxer Jack Doyle, an irreverent and rebellious advertising account representative, goes to work one fine Chicago day and finds his desk—and his job—both gone. A two-time loser at the marriage game as well, Doyle, usually ultra-confident, fishes himself out of a bottle to take stock, realizing, “with a thumping finality, that Life sure as hell did have his Number and was crunching it.”

At loose ends, Doyle accepts a most unusual offer from an acquaintance, Moe Kellman, to fix a horse race. The context of making the deal, a Cubs game at storied Wrigley Field, sets the tone for the drama that follows. Thus begins a chain of events that will lead the FBI to Doyle’s door where they “coopt” him into a quest after people who are maiming or killing thoroughbred horses for their insurance values. Their number one target is a loathsome media mogul who can’t bear to lose…at anything.

Built upon recent factual events, spiced with satire and peppered throughout with engaging loonies, Blind Switch is a noteworthy first novel with a hero forced to ask in its ultimate line, “Where have I gone right?”


Have terrorists killed the Superbowl Quarterback? Private investigator Tom Mullins and his 12 year old boy-genius next door neighbor are on the case in this story of a championship football season wrapped in a quirky, fast moving, whodunit.

The Divided Man

It's not the end of the world. It's the beginning.

On December 29, 1890 the U.S. Calvary put a brutal end to the Ghost Dance in the Wounded Knee Massacre . Before the soldiers finished their slaughter one small boy danced a prayer to save his people and in his dying vision, reached out to the one who could lead them into a new life.

It is summer 2012 and that prayer is about to be answered. Luke Kimball is The Divided Man, a global security expert who isolates himself from emotional involvement because people who get close to him end up dead.

On the eve of the war that destroys the world the Ghost Dance prayer finds him, spinning the Hoop of his life in directions he could not have imagined. Claimed by the prayer, Luke is connected to past and future, chosen to be a savior of legend, a unifying force of past and future, of man and god.

Luke must awaken the Sacred Tree of Life and balance the harmony between human and spirit existence or lives of all will cease to exist. Opposing him is the Manitou, an elk-headed god who has stolen Luke's soul and requires death for its return.

Luke's quest takes him across a land sundered by war and on the verge of miraculous change, far into the realms of once-mythical gods and deep within him to face the demons that have haunted his life.

Dragon Sim-13 (The Green Beret Series)

Mayer follow up Eyes of the Hammer with a pulsing techno-thriller set in June 1989. As Chinese students are dying in Tiananmen Square, the U.S. stages Dragon SIM-13--a routine computer exercise involving a simulated Special Forces raid on a Chinese oil pipeline. But the program has been written by Doctor Meng, a refugee determined to strike a blow against his onetime tormentors in Beijing, and Sgt. Dave Riley and his Green Beret A-team find themselves actually in China, confronting disaster when a helicopter crash leaves half the men stranded in hostile territory. Mayer, an expert on special warfare operations, convincingly presents a situation in which no one in authority can quite believe the sudden connection between computer screens and real life. He equally successfully demonstrates how lower-echelon uncritical obedience to orders can make sense individually but add up to absurdity. The book's greatest strength, however, is its story line. In particular, the final rescue mission--featuring a hotshot female helicopter pilot--is a nail-biter in the best tradition of adventure fiction.

And the unbelievable origin of the most haunted road in all of Culloden County, Mississippi.

HURRICANE FATS (A Cole Sudden Thriller)

Auburn Longstreet’s Caribbean-based Ponzi scheme took in $300 million at his offshore bank before he was caught.

Thousands of small investors, lured by fanciful and falsified interest rates, lost their life savings, as the slippery six-foot-four con man eschewed restitution. Instead, he spent the bulk of the money on stateside lawyers and crooked politicians who kept him out of jail. He also prudently put aside millions to pay off some favored clients (drug cartels) that would otherwise have cut him into little pieces.

But the greedy Longstreet wasn’t satisfied. He decided to keep $35 million that “rightly” belonged to a New Orleans mob boss – by arranging to have the mobster tried and convicted on financial evidence he secretly supplied the Feds. Even better, the jailed mobster dies in prison thinking it was one of his own crew who turned on him!

Longstreet thought he was in the clear, free to dabble with the mob’s millions in Florida’s distressed real estate market.

Enter the dead mobster’s brutal son, who finds out the truth. He wants to avenge his father – but only after getting back the $35 million.

Add a literate but lethal Government spy, a laconic Las Vegas hit man and a Category 5 storm into the volatile mix and HURRICANE FATS, the first of the Cole Sudden thriller series, builds to a shattering climax.
