Private Eye Jackson "Doc" Holiday investigates fraud, a crime he knows intimately. He was once a respected and successful mortgage banker who laundered more than 100 million dollars in dirty money. Although never convicted, he has been blackballed from banking.

After his drinking buddy, a Catholic priest named Jesus Cortez, is shot dead in the driveway of Doc's Berkeley home, he sets out to find his killer. The case takes him in search of an old confederate in Portland, where he begins to suspect that the murder of Jesus is connected to a money laundering scheme suspiciously similar to Doc's own. As Doc delves in further, he crosses swords with a scheming matriarch, a bent cop, a femme fatale, and a master criminal. Whoever's at the bottom of this business has already killed and is facing "The Big Bitch," or life in prison. And they're not afraid to kill again.

Book 1 in the Jackson "Doc" Holiday Mystery series.

The Ice Cap and the Rift
By Marshall Chamberlain
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-1500511999
ASIN: B001EJODF4
Genre: Action-Adventure, Thriller
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub, mobi (Kindle)

A Comboquake rakes across the submerged twenty-five hundred mile ribbon of the Atlantic Ridge, threatening disaster on three continents. At the north end of the Ridge, a fifteen-mile long rift tears into Iceland’s largest ice cap, spewing a curtain of steam five hundred feet in the air. Advanced satellite imagery reveals the dissection of a large cavern eleven hundred feet down the ragged crevasse, containing objects and structures frozen in the ice that shouldn’t be there.

The UN’s Institute for the Study of Unusual Phenomena (ISUP) and its new director, John Henry Morgan, geologist, ex-marine, are cast into the aftermath of the largest single shift ever recorded in the Earth’s crust and the strange anomalies left in its wake.

When it’s discovered the cavern was occupied 180,000 years ago and contains a perfectly preserved hi-tech habitat and a travel machine, ISUP’s benign scientific expedition to study the origin and contents of the cavern turns chaotic.

Ferreting out the existence and significance of the discoveries, nations and terrorists mount sophisticated operations to acquire technological treasures for their own purposes.

The ISUP organization finds itself at the convergence of clandestine assault from several fronts. Acts of deceit and violence cascade into escalating brutality. Lives are expendable, a scenario that has plagued the human race throughout the chronicles of time.

Frantic action streams across the globe, crossing oceans and air lanes: Prague; London; New York; Washington, D.C.; Libya; France; Spain; Iceland; China. As factions grapple for power, survival of the ISUP scientists lies in their choices of whom to trust, how to utilize mysterious new technologies, and whether to seek assistance from an esoteric source claiming domicile in the Pleiades, a star cluster of the Taurus constellation.

Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers in the U.S.), pdf

When Jamie Aldrich was eleven years old, she and her siblings spent the summer with her great aunt Elizabeth. She doesn't remember what happened during that visit, and she's avoided Pawhuska, Oklahoma, ever since. But when Elizabeth calls her thirty years later, begging her to come, Jamie arrives to find her great aunt frail and agitated, inexplicably claiming that her entire life was a sham.

Now Elizabeth lies in a coma after what looks like an attempt on her life. Although Jamie has no idea who would want to harm her aunt, it's clear that the danger hasn't passed. Threatening notes appear in the house. Jamie meets with several strange "accidents." And the longer she stays, the more she feels like she can't trust anyone in Pawhuska -- not even Sam, the first man she's had feelings for since her husband died.

Will Jamie be able to discover the truth before both she and Elizabeth are silenced forever?

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 his hometown 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.

ASIAN HAZE by DeWayne Twitchell is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.
