Here’s the set-up:

When a young woman is found murdered in a public park, it is up to RPD detective Lt. Tom Lackey to locate her killer. With the help of his longtime girlfriend and professional photographer, Kathy Spencer, Lackey unravels a mystery laden with psychosis and unexpected revelations. While Tom is busy following the multiple clues pouring in from different directions, Kathy gets to work to prove her own theory: The last image viewed by the dying person can be lifted from the eyes of the victim to identify the murderer. Using her background in photography and her passion for iridology, Kathy enlists the help of Dr. Greer, a snow-haired medical examiner who allows her to take shots of Tracey Newman’s eyes. Her findings are puzzling, but they are supported by Alexis Howard, the dead girl’s ten-year-old half sister who volunteers information she claims was delivered to her by her imaginary friend Lily. With multiple suspects floating up to the surface and skeletons yanked out of unlikely closets, Tom must rely on his methodical expertise and on Kathy’s insight to find the killer before tragedy strikes again.

Desperate to clear her name, Robin escapes the institution, flees into the Texas Hill Country, and travels home to Calloway Ranch to jog her memory. By using her gift with a special herd of whitetail does, she learns who murdered her brother. But the information puts both her and the deer in the path of a hunter who’s desperate to hide the truth. Contains teen peril and some expletives.

Here’s the set-up:

Natalie Tosh is a probation officer who seems to get more than her fair share of odd cases. Paul Tosh (the author) is her husband, who has to listen to Natalie’s work stories over dinner. Paul is lucky. While most husbands have to hear about spiteful bickering and futile office politics, Paul is privy to a firsthand slice of life from the less-glamorized segment of American society. Now you are, too.

In this true account, we learn the story of a man who is no longer a free citizen because he could not resist the urge to “tweak his grandmother’s nose.” We watch the case unfold during Natalie’s normal daily routine, during which we also experience the frustrating ebb and flow of a unionized government work environment which breeds some of the greatest unpublicized leeches on taxpayer resources.

This short story has been professionally edited and specially formatted for all Kindle devices. We promise your electronic reading experience will be smooth and enjoyable. Check this one out.

All the Devil’s Creatures

by J.D. Barnett

4.7 stars – 3 Reviews
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

A lynching on a secluded bayou. A strange boy with supernatural powers. Rogue science.

It falls to small-time environmental lawyer Geoff Waltz to unravel the deadly conspiracy that connects these mysteries. Withdrawn from life and work since the death of his wife, Geoff wants only to secure a quick settlement from a petrochemical company he has sued for polluting a fragile bayou along the Texas-Louisiana border. But the lynching victim worked for him. And the odd, beautiful boy is his client’s grandson. Soon, with the help of private investigator Marisol Solis, he learns that there is something more sinister going on at the bayou than a chemical spill—secret work at a hidden facility that stretches the bounds of known science.

Secret work worth killing for.

But who is behind the conspiracy? And what is its ultimate goal? Mad science for mere profit? Or do the shadowy figures at work in the facility have a grander aim—to transform the world into a dystopian nightmare?

Geoff and Marisol’s race to answer these questions takes them to New Orleans, a maniacal hit man on their trail. As the conspiracy nears fruition, the boy—the special, unearthly boy—emerges at its epicenter. And could be its next tragic victim.

All the Devil’s Creatures is a thought-provoking, fast-paced paranormal thriller that does not shy away from issues of race, class, and environmental degradation in the American South. It is J.D. Barnett’s first novel. An earlier version, under the title China Island, won the 2011 Writers’ League Texas of manuscript contest in the thriller category.

Get the first two books in the hit series in one volume at a discounted price!

BOOK ONE:

Wesley Bates thinks his life pretty much sucks. He’s landed at the bottom of his school’s popularity ladder, and bully Randy Stanford seems to be waiting around every corner.

The troubled teen thinks he’s found a way to escape his real-world problems when he stumbles upon strange doorways in Astoria’s local library that seem to lead into the extraordinary worlds from all his favorite books. Oz, Neverland, Wonderland — they’re all a reality with Wesley’s new discovery. Wesley teams with best friend Taylor Williams to embark on a great adventure, both ready to leave the drama of middle school behind.

But the two kids quickly find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old battle for the library and the magic hiding within. Now, fighting alongside the eccentric old man who’s vowed to protect the building’s power, the pair must help ward off an attack by a shadowy group with a strange tie to Wesley’s nemesis, forcing Wesley to face the fears he’s been dodging… and one of the most terrifying bullies of all time!

BOOK TWO:

Yesterday, Taylor and Wes turned a boring field trip to their local library into a grand adventure when they found a mysterious portal leading into the fabled Land of Oz.

But that was yesterday.

Today they’ve learned their actions have had grave consequences. Not only did they alter the Oz mythos, but their deeds may have had unexplained repercussions in the real world as well. Taylor’s returned home to find she’s living a life that isn’t her own. Nothing’s as she left it. Her normally warm father has become cold and distant. Her grades have fallen overnight. Teachers who once saw her as their favorite student, now consider her their most problematic pupil. Only Wesley remembers Taylor as she truly is, and together, he and Tay return to Oz hoping they can undo the damage and restore both worlds to the way they were.

But the children quickly find they’re in way over their heads. Not only has the Wicked Witch taken control of Oz, but Douglas Stanford has stayed behind to build a small army of storybook villains to help him obtain the magic hidden within Astoria’s library. The librarian’s returned to stop him, but the old man may need the children’s help as the fate of every known world hangs in the balance.

Signs of Destiny

by C. Michael Bennis

Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

This exceptionally written fictional romance weaves the themes of predestination, palmistry, reincarnation, dream travel, and destiny. Narrated from the perspective of the main character, Rafael Valverde, this unique story grips the reader’s attention as he lives through relationships with his manipulative father, his deceased mother, love connections, and friendships.

His authoritative father always demanded that Rafael become a financier, and assume power of his elaborate estate. But Rafael protests by following the genetically-rooted artistic talents he has inherited from his maternal side, and he chooses to study art at Penn. To further complicate their strained relationship, the father and son become estranged after Rafael’s nearly fatal car crash. When the pendulum of time again swings, it becomes evident to both of them that they are each a unique blend of genetics, worldly influences, and desires and, at times and under certain circumstances, they are one and the same.

Rafael’s sketches and paintings often reflect the beautiful women of his life, including his beloved mother, Spain’s most popular actress named Gisele, and an Egyptian beauty who touched his heart by rescuing him from the rain. At an art show in Madrid, all of his paintings are sold with the exception of the portrait of Gisele, which is declared priceless. As a result, his art reputation becomes renowned and celebrated via the inclusion of Gisele on publications worldwide.

The lives of Rafael’s love interests are many. Alison, whose early death is predicted by a palmist, and the attraction of Pilar to Rafael years ago as teenagers, add depth and passion to this story of romantic relationships, and how they envelop people as destiny takes its course. Predictions and forecasts of the characters’ destinies abound with compelling accuracy. The characters truly care for one another in very diverse ways. The human spirit triumphs in finding romance and pleasure, despite the often rigid and dangerous powers of destiny.

The nebulous images depicted in dreams and the predictions of the chiromancy by a Spiritualist provide an intriguing paranormal element that threads its way throughout Signs of Destiny.

The story blends trails of life and love, death and destiny in a dramatic, serious and sometimes, sorrowful way, but always touched by the humor that life often presents. The love experienced by the unforgettable characters in this dramatic novel authored by C. Michael Bennis is one of extremes—restrained and uncontrolled, revengeful and with abandonment, hurtful and comforting, lustful, and innocent. Follow the life, relationships, and emotions of the characters of the Signs of Destiny, especially Rafael, which parallel our lives and the lives of those who we can only imagine.
