Crime Thriller For Review

Heavy Hour
By Patrick Brown
Publisher: Peachtree Corners Press
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0986254925
Pages: 309
Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Mystery, Action/Adventure

From the author of the suspense thriller, VARIED TRAITS, comes the sequel, HEAVY HOUR!

Four teenagers form a bond during a hot Atlanta summer. Ten years later, a tragic event takes place during a swanky Midtown wedding reception. When the police come up empty in the search for a vicious killer, Salem Reid is summoned to investigate by a stripper whom he has recently saved from a murderous group of thugs. Reid can’t say no to a friend in need, so he puts his business on hold while he plunges into the case.

As Reid looks into the victim’s past, the motivation for the brutal murder and the identity of the predator are slowly revealed. But the killer remains elusive. As the story unfolds, a cast of characters emerges—from a beautiful young widow to a bevy of streetwalkers, from young professionals to a mentally challenged boy—all who assist Salem Reid in his search for the killer.

HEAVY HOUR leads us on a journey into an urban underworld of prostitution, pornography, and sexual deviance that author Patrick Brown describes in graphic detail. Following up from the prequel, VARIED TRAITS, we are rocketed into a world where we might be afraid to venture outside…or stay in, as the case may be.

Mystery/Suspense From NYT Bestselling Author Joni Rodgers For Review

The Hurricane Lover
By Joni Rodgers
Publisher: Stella Link Books
ISBN: 9780983339243
ASIN: B00695CO7M
Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Action/Adventure
Formats Available for Review: epub/ebook, mobi/kindle

During the record-smashing hurricane season of 2005, a firebrand meteorologist and an ambitious journalist come together to catch a con artist who uses chaos as cover for identity theft and murder. A deadly game of cat and mouse unfolds alongside their stormy love affair, complicated by polarized politics, high-strung Southern families, a full-on media circus, and the worst disaster management goat screw in US history.

As Hurricane Katrina howls toward the ill-prepared city of New Orleans, Dr. Corbin Thibodeaux, a Gulf Coast climatologist and storm risk specialist, preaches the gospel of evacuation, weighed down by the fresh public memory of a spectacularly false alarm a year earlier. Meanwhile, Shay Hoovestahl, a puff piece reporter for the local news, stumbles on the story of a con artist who uses storm-related chaos as cover for identity theft and murder. Laying a trap to expose the killer, Shay drags Corbin into her agenda, which goes horribly awry as the city's infrastructure crumbles.

The Hurricane Lover is a fast-paced tale of two cities, two families, and two desperate people seeking shelter from the storm.

NYT bestselling author/ghostwriter Joni Rodgers, who lives on the Gulf Coast, writes knowingly about the dramatic megastorms, weaving in her own firsthand experience, authentic meteorology, transcripts of actual emails sent and received by FEMA director Michael Brown (later released through the Freedom of Information Act), and the riveting personal stories she heard while volunteering with relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

As a reader (and reviewer) I am always on the search for an author that changes things up, goes away from the norm and introduces something new into a genre. In the past year, for me, that author is Alex Marwood and her novel The Killer Next Door. Check out my Author Interview & Giveaway (US) with her

12:07 THE SLEEPING is a novel – it is also a story. Whether it is true or fictional has no bearing whatsoever. But what is true, is that things like THE SLEEPING are all too real, albeit to some people only. Some of you sceptical out there can pull from the story what you like. But whatever you draw or conclude, the fact remains, it is only a story – or is it?

The sensation in which some people, when either falling asleep or waking, briefly experience an inability to move, is commonly known as Sleep Paralysis. It’s described as a state of transition between wakefulness and rest, which has the effect of complete loss of muscle strength. It can happen at the onset of sleep or upon awakening, and it often has disturbing visions. For example: The feeling that someone has entered the room and is now sat upon you, to which you are unable to react due to paralysis.

Now if that sounds like a nightmare, then I suppose it is. But that’s only in the fact that it is a wakeful nightmare. I use the word ‘wakeful’ because to the recipient of such a nightmare, they feel they are awake.

Sleep paralysis – known also as hag’s syndrome – is real. It is now being described, by some, as a paranormal experience. To those who have this supernatural involvement: “Keep on fighting whoever it is that comes, because fighting may just keep you alive.” Buy it here
