The Dirty Parts of the Bible — A Novel by Sam Torode

“Funny as Hell, with a Heart as Big as Texas”The Dirty Parts of the Bible is a humorous adventure across America during the Great Depression—a rollicking tale of love and liquor, preachers and prostitutes, trains and treasure, sure to appeal to fans of Water for Elephants, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Mark Twain, and Johnny Cash.Semifinalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel AwardPublishers Weekly says:”While the title suggests a raunchy read, this rich and soulful novel is actually a rather well-done bildungsroman [coming-of-age story] steeped in wanderlust and whimsy that at times recalls The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and at others a tamer On the Road. The story begins in 1936 as 19-year-old Tobias is thumbing his way from Remus, Mich., to his uncle’s farm in Glen Rose, Tex., to find a hidden bag of money, after his father, a Baptist pastor, drunkenly slams his car into the church and is removed from the parsonage. The author does an excellent job in making well-charted territory (riding the rails; scavenged campfire meals under the stars) seem vibrant and new. Snippets of scripture, Southern spirituals, and folk ballads lend context and flavor to the text. Most impressive are the jangly dialogue and the characters’ distinctive voices, which are authentic and earthy but not remotely hoary. When Tobias finally arrives at his uncle’s, the surprises that await him are more than enough to keep his–and readers’–interests piqued.” (Review from the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award)”The Dirty Parts of the Bible has it all … a plot that brings lots of laughs and a few tears, a writing style that is comfortable and matches the story, and characters that are pure joy.” –Front Street Reviews”The Dirty Parts of the Bible is a grown-up Mark Twain-type adventure with lots of spirit and humor.” –Reader Views”A fun read.” –The Nashville Scene

Rachel Hunter witnessed her husband being murdered a year ago and since then, her and her 7 year old daughter, Jean, are in the Witness Protection Program. Rachel works as a waitress, and is at work when she first meets Nick McCarthy, a New York Best Selling Author of an Assassin book series. However, his writing is a cover for his real profession, an Assassin. His next assignment – take out Rachel Hunter, but Nick can’t do it, and instead, helps protect Rachel and her daughter in what becomes a cross-country killing spree to eliminate the people who ordered her hit.

Lots of action scenes with a high body count. An added dab of humor adds to the story for an enjoyable read.

Nick McCarty comes out of retirement at the urging of his partner, Gus Nason. The wheels fall off the McCarty assassin wagon when after a difficult hit overseas, he looks into a teacher’s problematic family troubles at the urging of his step-daughter, Jean. In no time at all, the bodies are piling up, and the tendrils threatening both Nick’s family, along with his bestselling author status spread at record speed.

A stone-cold killer with family and friends is a dangerous business. When bad people threaten Nick’s Pacific Grove home, it becomes a deadly business. Nick’s up to the mark, with his family and friends holding on tight for yet another McCarty journey into darkness.

Book 3 – Sins and Sanctions
El Muerto began as a joke by writer/assassin Nick McCarty’s partner, Gus. In Nick’s offbeat sense of violent humor, he makes El Muerto into a terrifying legend. Adding his partner Gus into the mix as Payaso his sidekick, Nick enters the realm of serial killers and terrorists with a vengeance.

Nick McCarty’s new boss opens the keys to the kingdom for the coldest blooded killer he’s ever met. Deciding when fighting psychopathic murderers and terrorist cells hell bent on America’s destruction, there is one old football cliché that fits – winning isn’t everything… it’s the only thing. Nick’s book tour turns into a bloody rampage, leaving little doubt he embraces his boss’s new management style. Returning to his Pacific Grove refuge with family and friends, Nick decides to bring his deadly business more into the open… and business is good.

BONUS… short story with Nick McCarty and his daughter Jean on a future mission together.

Book 4 – Bloody Shadows (Released MAY 15, 2015
Writer/Assassin Nick McCarty faces off with traitorous blackmailers, terrorist sympathizers, the Seattle ‘Ripper’, and powerful entities hell bent on either recruiting the most cold blooded killer in the land, or killing him and his family. They find out in terrifying terms when you go after the Terminator, you had better get him with the first strike. Because after you miss, he plays hard ball without mercy, and without hesitation.

Taking quirky to the extreme, Nick cuts off his trouble free vacation time in favor of a rapid fire series of spider webbed events. He leads what CIA Director Paul Gilbrech thinks of as Nick’s team of cartoons, The Unholy Trio, into one deadly action after another. From a criminal consultation with the local police becoming a mugger gang execution to a simple recon of a suspected Isis training center turning into a war zone, Nick repairs problems with deadly proficiency.

Bonus Story – Also another free Nick and Jean future bonus story with romance, violence, political intrigue, and of course much humor.
The Cold Blooded: Nick McCarty Series will be getting a new cover for each book. There’s no change in the interior file

Beyond Dead: An Afterlife Adventures Novel (A Paranormal Ghost Cozy Mystery Series Book 1) by Jordaina Sydney Robinson

You thought living was hard? You should try being dead … Dead less than twenty-four hours, with a job that doesn’t pay, a fashion disaster for a uniform and more afterlife rules than she can shake a stick at, Bridget Sway thinks it’s as bad as it can get. And then she finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker.Since the police are desperate to arrest her for murder, Bridget’s new best friend convinces her the only way to save herself from an eternity in prison is to solve the murder themselves. With a handsome parole officer watching her every move, an outlaw ghost befriending her and two persistent mediums demanding her attention, solving the murder is not quite as easy as it sounds. And when “murder” turns into “murders” Bridget needs to solve the case … before she becomes the next dead body stuffed in her locker. Interview with the author What makes the Bridget Sway series so special?I think it’s a couple of things, to be honest. I read across genres, from cozy mysteries to paranormal mysteries to a wide range of chick lit. So when I was writing the Bridget Sway series, I wanted to incorporate all of my favourite elements of those genres into the series and the characters as well. That might sound like a bit of a strange mash up, but it blends together really well. From cozy mysteries, I stole the dead bodies and the amateur sleuthing because I love whodunnits! One of the things that can become frustrating in cozy mysteries, though, is the ditsy heroine that continually runs into dangerous situations. I wanted to make Bridget smarter than the average cozy amateur sleuth, so I gave her the sassy or snarky attitude of the strong female characters that are so prevalent in the paranormal mystery genre. I also borrowed a little of the sarcastic wit and humor as well. Because everyone needs a little humor when finding dead bodies!And, despite her being a ghost, I wanted to make sure Bridget Sway was relatable, so I made sure she struggles with friendships and personal growth just like everyone in real life. Both of these themes are dominant in the chick lit genre. All of this means that the Bridget Sway series has roots in all three genres; cozy mystery, paranormal mystery, and chick lit. I think this is what makes the series so popular because it appeals to a much wider audience.Who would enjoy the series? Really, anyone who loves a good whodunnit!With it being part cozy mystery it means there’s no swearing or sex, and no real blood—people aren’t getting limbs lobbed off—so it’s fine for younger readers. And, apart from the fact it’s set in the afterlife and the characters are ghosts, the paranormal element is fairly limited to that. It’s not a horror story by any stretch of the imagination. In terms of similar reads, I think if you enjoy Angie Fox’s Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, Angela Roquet’s Lana Harvey series or Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse/Harper ConnellyGrave Sight series then you’re in the right place! Do you have to read them in order? Nope, you don’t. They’re all standalone mysteries so you can read them in any order. That said, it is a series, so to get the most out of it I’d suggest the following order:Just a Touch Dead (prequel)Beyond DeadDeader StillA Little More DeadDead and Buried Bridget Sway: A Paranormal Ghost Cozy Mystery Series categories: Mystery SeriesCozy Mystery ParanormalGhost Amateur Sleuths
