“[Leine
Basso] is a sassy, kick-arse, no-nonsense,
I’ll-eat-your-balls-for-breakfast type of woman. She simply rocks.

“[A
Killing Truth] introduces one of modern fiction’s deadliest
heroes…”
~Reviewer
Charles A. Ray

 

 

“This
is my third Leine Basso, and like the others, the action never lets
up. Leine is the female Jack Reacher only she does it all without
being 6’5″ and weighing 265 pounds, so that makes her more
incredible. If you like page-turners, you’ll love this book.”
 ~
Polly Iyer, bestselling suspense author

 

 

“A
Killing Truth would make an excellent introduction to D.V. Berkom’s
writing…she’s one of my favorites… love how she just puts you
right in the pages and you just don’t want to end.”
 ~Hornfan2

“Non-stop
twists and turns. An excellent thriller that pits Leine against not
only international criminals but her own boss.”
~USMC-Mike

 

 

“What
the world needs now is more female characters like bad ass Leine
Basso. Bought the trio of books that follow this one because of how
much I enjoyed the plot and twists along the way.”

DV
Berkom is the USA Today bestselling author of two action-packed
thriller series featuring strong female leads (Leine Basso and Kate
Jones). Her love of creating resilient, women characters
stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and
thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those
pages.

 

 

Raised
in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science and promptly
moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and many
adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate
Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as
an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle and Nook
fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon
followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller
series in early 2012 with Serial Date.

 

 

DV
currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mark, and
several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do.

City
of Gold
Matthew
Connor Adventure Series, Book 1
by
Carolyn Arnold
Genre:
Action, Adventure 
 
Finding
the Incas’ lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime.
But failing could mean her death…
Archaeologist
Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a
dangerous retrieval expedition in India. While they succeeded in
obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost
them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet
when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the
legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.
Not
only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost
city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated
their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s
just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by
Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu
statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life
means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the
relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind would
refuse—the City of Gold.
Now
Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a
treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven
days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover
that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but
with blood.

 

What
to expect from the Matthew Connor Adventure series:
Action-adventure
books for the mystery lover.
 Does treasure hunting
excite you? What about the thought of traveling the globe and
exploring remote regions to uncover legends that the world has all
but forgotten? If so, strap yourself in for an adventure with
modern-day archaeologist Matthew Connor and his two closest friends.
Indiana Jones meets the twenty-first century.

Over the last year, he has lost his job, has attempted suicide multiple
times, and has gotten his relationship to the point where it is
heading for divorce. Fed up with everything, Rory has accepted his fate.
When he wakes up from a failed suicide attempt, he learns that his wife,
Maggie, has disappeared without a trace. Her car is found abandoned
on the highway, miles away from home. Her purse and her cell phone
are discovered in the trunk. There is no sign of Maggie.
All Rory can remember about the previous night is that the two had the
fight of a lifetime. The dispute causes him to storm out of the house
and steal prescription pills from his neighbors in an attempt to
overdose.
After that, everything is a blur.
Maggie’s sudden disappearance becomes a mystery.
Was she kidnapped? Did she disappear on purpose?

hires a private investigator to gather information.
All of these actions are to show police that he is actively searching.
Deep down, though, he just doesn’t care anymore. But, does Rory’s
lack of affection mean that he is responsible for Maggie’s

disappearance? Or will he serve as the unlikely hero who finds her?

The
Quinnipiac Disappearance
Tawnee
Mountain Mysteries Book 7
by
Lee Tidball
 
“Down
in South Jersey, you got your Jersey Devil and the Pine Barrens.
Up here, we got E.T.s and Quinnipiac.”

So
says Alan Riddiak, NSA field agent Jake Farrister’s friend, as they
rent kayaks at Quinnipiac Reservoir, site of what locals say was the
most credible mass sighting of a UFO in human history, and just miles
from the swanky Tawnee Mountain Resort, where Alan’s boss, revered
Senator Grant Bilson of New Jersey, is on an August recess
retreat.
“

Ok…”
smirks Jake.

But
smirks turn to shock when two bizarre disappearances and an attempted
murder suck the rest out of the retreat, and Senator Bilson
commissions Jake to solve the mysteries.

Jake
finds nothing but frustration, though, until he finally concedes what
quirky new friend Nikki Hayes has told him all along; when it comes
to Quinnipiac, the only explanations are inexplicable, the only
believable witnesses are unbelievable, and in order to stop the
world-shattering plot at the heart of the mysteries, Jake must do
what he thought was unthinkable—and hope he’s not too late.

Strange and Lovely: Ten Paranormal Tales of Thrills and Romance

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Cynthia Jane Savage Anaya talks about the Anthology  “Strange and Lovely: Ten Paranormal Tales of Thrills and Romance.”

Cynthia how did you came up with the idea for an anthology?

Rebecca Gage was the author involved in planning this anthology and specifically seeking out the other nine authors involved. She wanted to create a fun, clean, paranormal book filled with short stories for teens and up to read and enjoy.

Great idea. How did you find all the authors for it?

Rebecca and I met at an ANWA conference last February and hit it off immediately. When she contacted me a few months ago about her project idea she asked for author suggestions. I thought (more…)

Dangerous Game by Keith Morris

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

We find in Dangerous Game a thrilling book about terrorists and the Olympic games that come to Utah for the second time. This story is well done, clean and has characters who are Mormons. I recommended it to all who enjoy thrillers, detectives and don’t mind a sprinkle of Mormonism here and there. It isn’t preachy at all, nor is it a conversion tool. What it is, though, is a great reading for all readers from pre-teens to adults.

It all starts when Peter is asked by the FBI to investigate a murder in rural Utah. This results in contingency with his job as a security officer for the LDS church. He not only meets the deceased man, but also the police woman who will become his partner in this bizarre case.

Why would anyone kill a God-fearing man and call the police to tell them where his body is? Just a few days later, Peter and his partner find that that there have been other cases like this one. All the bodies had been bitten before they were killed. Are they dealing with a serial killer, or some other type of villain who doesn’t care for human life?
