When Harry and his brother Frank are blackmailed into paying off a local hood they decide to take care of the problem themselves. But when all of London's underworld is in thrall to the man's boss, was their plan audacious or the most foolish thing that they could possibly have done?

(A Digital Short)

A ruthless hitman confronts his destiny in a startling tale of redemption.


$0.99 Title

After being laid off at my latest company that fell victim to insider fraud, and the job market at its lowest point in years, I decided to follow the advice of my self-made millionaire friend and become 'The Professional Freelancer'. Spiraling out of control, I found myself involved in several extremely dangerous situations that strangely all seem to be connected involving the mafia, a Korean street gang, a white-collar crime, and masterminding the annual euchre championships at a senior citizens retirement home. 
The Professional Freelancer is a humorous ebook that was not written in a traditional format. It was written from the protagonist’s point-of-view. He is talking directly to you; the reader. 

This is book 2 out of 5. You should read book 1 first. You can get it here: for free!

A mafia settling of scores went wrong, and must be fixed. At the other end of the city, two hitmen who have nothing in common must partner despite their mutual contempt.

When Eddie finds out that the mark he's being told to take out is an old friend, he has to decide where his loyalties lie – and if Liam is there to make sure his choice is the right one. 

Their opposite personalities and many other obstacles make for an adventure that both thrills and amuses. 

Don't miss the second installment of this five-part series of murder, mayhem and mystery. Buckle in as things take off for our protagonists, setting things in motion that will change their lives forever.

Get the Mark Dawson Starter Library - four books, for free - by visiting

Best-selling author Mark Dawson makes his stunning Kindle debut with a thriller that has earned multiple "5-star" rave reviews from readers in the UK and US.

London, 1940: the Luftwaffe blitzes London every night for fifty-seven nights. Houses, shops and entire streets are wiped from the map. The underworld is in flux: the Italian criminals who dominated the West End have been interned and now their rivals are fighting to replace them. Meanwhile, hidden in the shadows, the Black-Out Ripper sharpens his knife and sets to his grisly work.

Henry Irving is a disgraced reporter on a Fleet Street scandal rag. Genius detective sergeant Charlie Murphy is a fresh face in the Metropolitan police, hunting corrupt colleagues but blinkered by ambition and jealousy. His brother, detective inspector Frank Murphy, searches frantically for his runaway daughter, terrified that she will be the killer's next victim.

As the Ripper stalks the terrified streets, the three men discover that his handiwork is not quite what it seems. Conspirators are afoot, taking advantage of the chaos to settle old scores. The murders invade the lives of the victims and victimizers on both sides of the law, as everyone is sucked deeper and deeper into Soho's black heart.

Based on a little known true story, The Black Mile is a rollercoaster ride of a novel that was previously the most downloaded novel on the Kindle Store.

If you enjoy the thrillers of James Elroy, Peter James and Dennis Lehane, you'll love THE BLACK MILE.

Because from what she can see, she has money, brains, a body that does the job. Yet, she keeps getting shelved. Most recently, by her fiancé who happens to be the DA. 
And she'll get over it, really. No problem. She'll just have a nice, short encounter with a mysterious Italian named Antonio who may or may not be involved with some kind of alleged criminal activity...blah blah... 
Let's call a spade a spade. 
He's a mobster. 
Let's face a few more facts.

Yeah. There's something wrong with her.

Her mission: entrap Patrick using her psychological and sensual talents.

This is dark romance and there are elements of blackmail and kidnapping within the story lines.* Glazov and Novak are cousins, in their minds: "They are born Bratva. and they will die Bratva"
I listened to my captor as his words hit me right between my eyes.

"I enjoy taking a woman and doing the kind of dirty and nasty things to her that stain her soul. Can I take you? Can I stain you? Can I hurt you so that you are begging me to push you to the point of no return? Are you willing to go to that extent to save your friend?"

"Yes, I hurried and agreed knowing that he would snuff her life out with no thought, or regret; for the money that she had stolen from him."

The day that I agreed was the point of no return!

This is my story...I warn you, it is NOT a love story...It IS a Dark Erotic Tale...

Corrado Moretti. 

The world knows the notorious Kevlar Killer, but few have ever seen what lies beneath his armor. The abused child. The neglected teenager. The broken man. He always did whatever he had to do in order to survive. 

It's kill or be killed. 

Throughout his life, he has been there in the shadows, a witness to everything from beginning to end. Bound by loyalty and honor, there's only one thing he would sacrifice it all for: family. 

Never get close. Never get attached. It's a lesson that has been brutally pounded into him since childhood, but they're words the DeMarcos make it difficult for him to follow. Through them he finds love and grieves loss, realizing the world isn't quite as black and white as it's made out to be. 


Two men. Spies. An American. A German. 

The year is 1942. The world is at war. 

In New York City, the German spy is following Nazi orders, climbing the corporate ladder. He has it all. A loving wife. A good job. A tidy house on Long Island. Everything is perfect. Until one night when his wife discovers his shocking secret. 

In Germany, one of the U.S. Army’s deadliest commandos parachutes to earth. His mission: wreaking havoc from behind enemy lines. But something goes terribly wrong during his jump, leaving him with a lethal injury and a crucial choice. It’s kill or be discovered. He makes the ruthless decision, killing two innocents without hesitation, knowing he’ll never be the same again. 

Two years later, sufficiently chastened, the two men independently claw their way back to relevance. Through meticulous analysis, the American learns of the German’s existence. He’s a soldier now, wearing the American uniform, murdering senior officers under the cloak of battle. 

As the parallel plots converge, the American doggedly stalks the German spy. First to Europe. Then to France. The killings intensify. A major. A colonel. A general. 

The hunt narrows from division, to regiment, to company. It’s a hunt for a vicious killer. 

It’s a hunt for the American’s doppelgänger.

 A war is taking place on the streets of Bangkok as political cliques fire bullets and rockets at each other.
Mysterious 'Men in Black' snipe combatants from both sides.
It is a good time to settle old scores.
Take a walk on the darkside with Chance. An enigma: family-orientated, loyal and loving... and a cold-blooded killer.... This chilling, high-octane thriller takes you to parts of Bangkok no tourist should ever go, a world where life is cheap and morality non-existent.

By the time that you look into my eyes, nine times out of ten--it's too late.

I have two rules that I live by: Never sleep with a woman more than once and never kill one--I'm getting ready to break both of those rules...

In Spain, former Green Beret Gage Hartline accepts a risky job inserting him into notorious Berga Prison—a place as sleazy as it is deadly. Charged with protecting the son of a wealthy mobster, Gage is pitted against rival gangs as well as corrupt government officials. He soon finds himself double-crossed by nearly everyone involved, leaving him on his own, fighting to survive. Gage has the training. Gage has the nerve. But will it be enough?

The second novel in Chuck Driskell's Gage Hartline series, To The Lions uses Driskell's trademark recipe of thrills, suspense, espionage and romance to create a memorable tale that Kirkus Reviews describes as "scorching" and "crisp with innovation".
