Sheriff’s
detective Katrina “Hurricane” Williams confronts deep-rooted hate
and greed in the Missouri Ozarks in this riveting police procedural…

scene, she discovers broken headstones and disturbed open graves in a
forgotten cemetery.
As
Katrina attempts to sort out a complex backwoods criminal network
involving the Aryan Brotherhood, meth dealers, and the Ozarks
Nightriders motorcycle gang, she is confronted by the sudden
appearance of a person out of her own past who may be involved. And
what seems like a clear-cut case of racially motivated murder is
further complicated by rumors of hidden silver and dark family
histories. To uncover the ugly truth, Katrina will need to dig up
past crimes and shameful secrets that certain people would kill to
keep buried . . .

Dredging
up the Truth
Still
recovering from tragedy and grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war
veteran and sheriff’s detective Katrina Williams copes the only way
she knows how—by immersing herself in work. A body’s just been
pulled from the lake with a fish haul, but what seems like a
straight-forward murder case over the poaching of paddlefish for
domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier than the depths of the lake.
Soon
a second body is found—an illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to
a charismatic tent revival preacher. But as Katrina tries to
investigate the enigmatic evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic
FBI agents and Army CID personnel. When more young female refu-gees
disappear, she must partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs
mixed feelings in her, to connect the lake murder to the refugees.
Katrina is no stranger to darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators
plan to make sure she’ll never again see the light of day . . .

 Katrina
Williams left the Army ten years ago disillusioned and damaged. Now a
sheriff’s detective at home in the Missouri Ozarks, Katrina is
living her life one case at a time—between mandated therapy
sessions—until she learns that she’s a suspect in a military
investigation with ties to her painful past.

 
The
disappearance of a local girl is far from the routine distraction,
however. Brutally murdered, the girl’s corpse is found by a
bottlegger whose information leads Katrina into a tangled web of
teenagers, moonshiners, motorcycle clubs, and a fellow veteran
battling illness and his own personal demons. Unraveling each thread
will take time  Katrina might not have as the Army investigator
turns his searchlight on the devastating incident that ended her
military career. Now Katrina will need to dig deep for the
truth—before she’s found buried…

Feel that dream in your gut every time you sit down to write. You got this!

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Christine Clemetson, tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

 

I was born in a small beach town in New Jersey where I spent most of my time fishing, crabbing and reading books. Now, I live just a little north of where I grew up. New Jersey has the most beautiful change of seasons and I can’t be very far from the ocean!

Where do you receive your inspiration or ideas for your books?

 

Ideas seem to come from everywhere. Most of the time, I’ll see something and start asking the “what if” questions. Sometimes, my ideas come from dreams too! Usually when this happens, a small part of my dream will linger in the morning and eventually form into an idea.

 

Why did you choose to self-publish? Or go with the publisher you are with?

 

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG), a fabulous group for supporting writers, was accepting entries for a new short story anthology with the premise of a ticking clock. I was so intrigued that I wrote a story called Center Lane. Through the anthology, I met the publisher Dancing Lemur Press.

 

How often do you write?

 

I work as a Technical Writer full time, so I write toward a word count goal each morning. If I don’t meet the goal, I’ll go back into the story at night to finish.  Some days the story is waiting for me and other days the muse takes longer to arrive,  and I have to work harder to get the words down!

 

What is the name of your book?

 

Tick Tock: A Stitch in Crime, which contains 11 mysteries by 11 authors. If you love mysteries, you’ll love this anthology!

What genre is it?

 

Mystery

 

Tell us about some of your future projects?

 

I’m plotting  a new thriller where I still need to determine the setting. I find the setting plays the same role as a character in the book, and it should reflect the story goals.  This requires a lot of planning and possibly travel – which I love!

 

What are some of your favorite books?

 

There are too many to possibly name. Some of my favorite contemporary authors include Karin Slaughter, Lisa Unger and Rick Mofina.

 

If you could co-write a book with another author, who would it be?

 

I would love to co-write a book with Stephen King. I think it would be fun to plot a thriller or horror book and explore the different characters with him.

 

Do you have any advice for others who dream of being an author?

 

Keep writing and reading as much as you can. Join a writer’s group and attend workshops. Keep learning. And above all, don’t give up! Feel that dream in your gut every time you sit down to write. You got this!

 

Where can we find your book?

She can trust no one as she follows a twisting maze of greed and malice to ferret out a killer Review

MURDER IN THISTLECROSS
by
Amy M. Reade
Genre: Mystery/Thriller

 

The emerald hills and violet valleys of
Wales seem the ideal place to start over after murder-and
divorce-shattered Eilidh’s life in the Scottish Highlands. But
within the stone walls of an ancient castle, a family’s dark,
violent past threatens much more than her newfound tranquility . . .
For the past two years, Eilidh has
called the quaint Welsh village of Thistlecross home, embracing her
new life as estate manager of a restored fifteenth-century castle.
But the long-anticipated arrival of her employer’s three estranged
sons and their wives transforms Gylfinog Castell from a welcoming
haven to a place seething with dangerous secrets. When the escalating
tensions culminate in murder, Eilidh must sift through a castle full
of suspects both upstairs and downstairs. She can trust no one as she
follows a twisting maze of greed and malice to ferret out a killer
who’s breaching every defense, preparing to make Eilidh the next to
die.

After she divorce her jailed husband, Eilidh has a great job as the person in charge of a castle and becomes friends with the owner. For two years things go well for all involved, until Annabel invites her three sons and their wives for a visit. Annabel thinks she can amend for the lack of protection she gave her sons under the brutal abuse they received from their father. Instead her favorite son is murdered and she dies just days later.

Murder in Thistlecross, by Amy M. Reade is a great story with twists and predictions alike. It is well done and will be good reading for those who enjoy murder mysteries with a light romance. I enjoyed the journey and the ending of this tale, as it takes us through what happens after the murders are resolved.  It makes a nice summer read or is great to  curl up with by the fire.

He chooses to protect a young witness, leaving him a burning spirit in the darkness

A
Burning In the Darkness
by
A P McGrath
Genre:
Mystery Thriller, Crime, Romance
 
A murder at one of the world’s busiest airports opens this simmering
crime story where a good man’s loyalty is tested to its limits.
Michael Kieh is a full time faith representative serving the needs of
some of the 80 million passengers, but circumstance and evidence
point to his guilt. His struggle to prove his innocence leads him on
a charged journey that pitches love against revenge. 

 

 


Michael’s
loneliness was eased by a series of brief encounters with a soul
mate. When she confides a dark secret, he is motivated to redress a
heart-breaking injustice. Together they must battle against powerful
forces as they edge dangerously close to unmasking a past crime. But
Michael faces defeat when he chooses to protect a young witness,
leaving him a burning spirit in the darkness.

 

 

Michael’s
commitment to helping those in need was forged in the brutality of
the Liberian civil war. Protected by a kind guardian, he too was a
young witness to an atrocity that has left a haunting legacy of
stolen justice and a lingering need for revenge. More poignantly
there is a first love cruelly left behind in Africa because of the
impossible choices of war. When Michael and his former lover find
each other once again they become formidable allies in proving his
innocence and rediscovering their lost love.

 

 

The
writing is such that the reader is gripped immediately, and swept
into a plot that packs intelligent themes and emotional depth into a
twisting, page turning read. – The Book Bag

 

 

…plenty
of twists and turns to keep you hooked until the very last page, A
Burning in the Darkness will prove to be difficult to put down. –
