Sci-fi Thriller For Review

By Avraham Anouchi
Published: June 2014
ISBN: 978-1493628612
Genre: Scinece Fiction, Sci-fi Thriller
Formats Available For Review: PDF

“From TIMNA to MARS” is a novel of archaeology and science fiction for non scientists
and inquisitive readers. The techno-industrial revolution is endangered by fast
consumption of rare earth metals without which many products taken for granted could
not be manufactured. The disappearance of hybrid cars, jet engines, oil refineries, cancer
fighting medications and smartphones would take earth back to the eighteenth century.

Scientists are stunned by the discovery of rare earth rhenium in a Timna copper mine. Pure
rhenium has never been found on earth.

Inspired by interpretations of Einstein’s theory that not all elements in the universe ended
up on our planet after the big bang, Professor Avner Amram is impassioned by his idea of
searching for rare earth deposits on asteroids and planets. NASA and ISRA, Israel’s Space
Research Authority, adopt his plan. CIA, KGB, SVR and Mossad agents are embroiled
in espionage, counter intelligence and murders. Avner and his associates are drawn into
the mayhem. Russia’s attempt to destroy an unmanned Israeli Mars orbiter results in an
unexpected discovery.

“For readers who want to be swept up in a super fast, thrilling ride with spies,
counterintelligence agents and masterminds of science - THIS is the book for you!
Fast-paced, exhilarating and extremely intelligent, there is not a moment of downtime in
this incredible novel!” - FEATHERED QUILL REVIEWS.

After inheriting his uncle’s fortune, author C. Adams begins to have nightmares and hear the sounds of an intruder in his newly inherited home. With no evidence, perhaps his writer’s imagination is getting carried away? The death of a neighbor is no hallucination and the investigating detective claims Adams’ uncle was part of a dark occult group. Meanwhile, he finds an intense attraction to a beautiful mysterious and successful woman, who his disbelief, says she is possessed by a demon, who is becoming crueler as it rears its evil head. Little did Adams know that the day his uncle died, his life would never be the same.

Psychological Thriller For Review

Coming May 2015

The Test
By B.A. Sherman
Published Date: March 2015
Release Date: May 2015
ISBN: 978-1511456883
Pages: 160
Genre: Psychological Thriller

Something unexplainable has happened to Greg, a rookie cop. One day, as he is working the mean streets of Denver, a dark feeling inside of him begins to bubble up. This 'thing,' which starts as a small voice having a conversation with him, is startling enough. Then the voice becomes stronger, and Greg is unable to control it.  

He becomes obsessively driven by this inner voice telling him what to do. First it's small stuff, and then it's a command to go out and kill. The killing starts with road-rage drivers, then anyone whose looks 'it' doesn't like. Unable to control the voice and the urges, he cannot help alienating his wife and young daughter, who eventually leave him and move back to Kansas. Even when 'it' is silent, Greg begins screwing up at work on the force and increasingly getting into arguments. One black night out on a job, he ends up cornered by his own officers and is shot. 'Evil' has been conquered...or has it just been a sinister test?

This first book in the Greg Dorn Series by B.A. Sherman will have readers wondering how and why a guy like Greg could suddenly be taken over by some inner voice and turn to murder. The evil continues in book 2 but the plot takes a whole new twist.

About the Author:
B.A. Sherman's passion is writing psychological thrillers. He lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter and, when not writing novels, he is a police officer in Colorado. He has been in law enforcement for 24 years. The Test is his first full-length novel.         

The short stories and books he writes are based on experiences he's had over the years, with "a heaping spoonful of fiction," he says. He has published one short story, The Truth, currently available on         

When he's not writing and working, Brad enjoys hunting, camping, fishing and skiing. These are areas he plans to write about in the future, perhaps incorporating them into a thriller or two.

Political Thriller For Review

The Swamps of Jersey
By Michael Stephen Daigle
Publisher: Imzadi Publishing
Published: November 2014
ISBN: 978-0990846512
Pages: 236
Genre: Political Thriller

Wrapped in the shell of a police procedural “The Swamps of Jersey,” a literary political mystery, is a story of ideas, a tale of human nature: love, trust, deceit, crime, politics, social change and redemption.  At the center is Detective Frank Nagler, whose personal past haunts the story.

Ironton, New Jersey has seen hard times before. Deserted factories and empty stores reflect the decades-long decline, that even Mayor Gabriel Richman, scion of one of the city’s leading political families, cannot seem to rectify. Now families are living on the street or in the shells of the old factories.

A week-long tropical storm floods the depressed city bringing more devastation as well as a new misery: The headless, handless body of a young woman in the Old Iron Bog.

Between the gruesome murder and an old factory suspiciously burning down, Detective Frank Nagler begins to believe that incarcerated Charlie Adams, the city’s famous serial killer, may have fostered a copycat killer. Determined to find the truth, he follows the case that leads into unexpected places.
