The Occult Persuasion and the Anarchist’s Solution
by Lisa de Nikolits
Genre: Humorous Thriller
The Occult Persuasion and the Anarchist’s Solution is about a couple experiencing a crisis. The husband, Lyndon, loses his job as editor of a financial magazine. Neither are happy with aging. Lyndon has gotten by with charm and frozen emotions. The wife, Margaux, has no idea how angry she is with him for his detachment. It is her idea to sell the house and just travel. But he is not coping well with retirement, so he simply walks off a ferry in Australia and leaves her. He steals a cat (well, he steals an expensive SUV that happens to have a cat onboard) and he flees Sydney, ending up in Apollo Bay, a few hours south-west of Melbourne, where he falls in with a group of anarchists and punk rockers in a tattoo parlour, planning revolution.
Meanwhile, Margaux sits tight in Sydney with no idea of where her husband might be or what happened. She moves into the red-light Kings Cross area, befriending the owner of the hostel, a seventy-year-old ex-cop drag queen from Saint John, New Brunswick, and waits to hear from her husband.
When she learns that her husband is fine, she is consumed by wrath and she invokes the angry spirit of an evil nurse, a key player in the terrible Chelmsworth sleep therapy in which many patients died (historical fact). While Lyndon gets in touch with his original career ambition to become an artist and wrestles with anarchism versus capitalism, Margaux learns to deal with her rage.
A serio-comedic thriller about a couple who embark on an unintentionally life-changing around-the-world adventure, The Occult Persuasion and the Anarchist’s Solution is about the meaning of life, healing from old wounds, romantic love at all ages, and how love and passion can make a difference, at any age.

Someone is strangling disabled people in the small town of Baxter, Connecticut…

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018
Reason
To Die
by
Debbie De Louise
Genre:
Crime Mystery
 
Someone
is strangling disabled people in the small town of Baxter,
Connecticut. Detective Courtney Lang and her ex-partner and ex-lover,
wheelchair-bound Bill Thompson, are paired up again and put in charge
of the investigation.
During
the search, Courtney uncovers information that points towards a
connection between the murders and an unsolved series of muggings by
a masked man, the same man who shot and disabled Bill a year ago on
the night he proposed marriage to her.
Complicating
matters for Courtney is her guilt about Thompson’s shooting, her
affair with her new partner, Mark Farrell, and her unresolved
feelings over the deaths of her mother and sister who perished in a
fire when she was away from home.
As
the deaths accrue and the “Handicapped Strangler” as the killer
is coined by the press continues to rampage the town adding victims
of different ages, sex and disabilities to the murder count, Courtney
discovers a clue that could crack open the case but may put her and
Bill’s life in jeopardy.
