Comment by DeWayne Twitchell yesterday

He is a Ph.D. in history who teaches at a college in a small city in New York State.

He is also a former undercover DEA agent and present part-time private investigator.

And he has secrets--dark ones.

Randall Arthur's first real case involves the widow of a man he once worked with, a man he saw die in an explosion in Asia. The widow has been receiving eerie phone calls, saying that the truth about her husband's death has yet to be revealed. And the caller has directed her to Randall Arthur.

The case he is about to take on will take him to the streets of Falcon City, NY, and to Australia. It will cause him to relive events he does not necessarily want to relive. It will give him the chance to rectify the failure of his last mission with the DEA a few years ago, where the man they were after escaped and left several of Randall's colleagues dead. The man is now apparently selling a new type of heroin, which has reached the streets of Falcon City and has killed a young user.

And it will lead him to look insanity right in the face.

My novel, ASIAN HAZE, is currently available on several web locations, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and Kobo. On the Kobo e-book site, it recently ranked as high as Number Three in the Mystery & Suspense, International category and in the top 200 in the Mystery & Suspense category.

Bill Vincent is a killer, but in the name of justice. Not that the law would see it that way. With one murderous act of retribution for terrible violence inflicted on his wife, he leaves behind a respectable calling as a prize-winning investigative journalist and hits the road. On the run he ekes out a living in California's Central Valley as a box-maker, a turkey debeaker, a truck driver's assistant, and finally a field hand. In this last job he meets Jim Garret, a like-minded spirit whose thirst for justice equals his own. They join together to beat the corrupt bossmen at their own political game.

The fourth entry into the Gunn Zoo Mystery Series.  A little change of venue for this one as Teddy travels to Iceland to pick up a orphan polar bear named Magnus and discovers ... of course ... a dead body.

Review of Thriller Pennies for the Damned on Dab of Darkness

Hosted by Sage's Blog Tours

From the review:

"The plot was twisted. Plenty of bends and cul-de-sacs."

"...by the end he has been pushed far too hard and the lines get really blurry for him. He goes from being a bit complicated to not so complicated as all the rage boils out of him. It was a very interesting story arc."

Picture Pennies for the Damned
By Edward Lorn
Genre: Thriller/Suspense


Ex-hitman Larry Laughlin got out of Mexico alive, but now he’s a haunted man. The final step to laying his ghosts to rest requires killing his newly paroled father. Before he can take action, though, a trio of killers break into Larry’s house, and he overhears their plan to murder his brother, Jaime, too. Old habits kick in, and Larry emerges the sole survivor. But while he’s gathering hidden funds to finance his plans, he’s ambushed by an unlikely traveling companion: a young abused teen named Brooklyn, who refuses to be left behind.

Larry and Brooklyn set out to save his brother and complete his patricidal task, but one wrong misstep drops yet another aching tragedy on Larry’s burdened shoulders. Nearly mad with his hunger for vengeance, Larry seeks his final nemesis in the heart of New York City. But what he finds will threaten more than just his life: Larry Laughlin damned himself long ago.

Tour Hosts / Book Reviewers Needed for Thriller!

Hosted by Sage's Blog Tours

Picture Abel Yeager is dead broke, down on his luck, and suffering from a serious case of what-the-hell-does-it-matter. His transition from active Marine to stateside long-haul trucker hit a wicked speed bump when his rig was involved in a wreck that claimed the life of a pregnant woman and laid him up for several months.

Back at work but deeply in debt, Yeager meets bookstore owner Charlie Buchanan in St. Louis and jumps at the chance to haul a load of remainder books to Austin for her. On the way south, a crew of truck thieves tracks his every move. But none of them know what Charlie’s ex has smuggled inside the book pallets, who he stole it from, or how far the owner will go to get it back. Charlie’s the first person Yeager has cared about in a long time, but as their bond deepens, so does the danger they’re in.

With enemy forces closing in, Yeager battles greed, corruption, and his own fatalism in a bid to hold true to Yeager’s First Law: come home at the end of the day.
