Squall by Sean Costello

Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five year old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds.

On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son…and unborn child.

SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go.

Che Bonaparte Must Die by A. L. Perks

Who’s trying to kill the champion for peace? The USA and China are on the verge of a nuclear slugfest, and the world chooses an unorthodox political activist with the unusual name of Che Bonaparte to save the day. She has the instincts of a fighter, the wisdom of Nelson Mandela, and the boldness of a Napoleon. And because of this, she must be killed.THE STORY: Don’t mess with this millennial as she’s busy saving our world. The year is 2018. A North Korean stupidity triggers a chain of out-of-control events resulting in two nuclear explosions; the first in China, soon followed by a blast on American soil. Many innocent people die. The two most powerful nations on the planet blame each other and are now hell-bent on getting revenge—or “justice” in their views—while the rest of the world can only watch helplessly from the sidelines.There is a glimmer of hope. The two sparring superpowers request a negotiator to represent the Rest of the World. In a bizarre closed-door session at the United Nations and to everyone’s surprise, Che Bonaparte is chosen. She is the youngest among 158 candidates and the most unorthodox. While possessing some international experience, she is considered a maverick and the confidence level of the world’s political elite is low.After days of frustrating and fruitless negotiations, Bonaparte goes for a game changer. She decides to ditch the traditional approach and propose an unprecedented get-together—the three leaders alone—declaring, “It’s what people want from their leaders, to save the day. Seven billion pairs of eyes on three people. And, quite conveniently, this is how leaders want history to remember them.”Her proposed location is peculiar: the rumoured site of the Garden of Eden—where Adam and Eve tasted the forbidden fruit. She intends to face off with the two most powerful people in the world: the President of the United States, Evelyn Lee-Grant, a God-fearing Republican whose international experience is untested; and the President of the People’s Republic of China, Jian Chang, a relative unknown whose quick ascension to power has made many enemies. Both presidents are advised by their teams not to show up.Che Bonaparte’s mission is obvious: prevent humanity from plummeting into a radioactive hell. Can she pull it off?THE CHE BONAPARTE SERIES “Che Bonaparte Must Die” is the third of a four-part narrative that spans twelve years in the life of a very singular person. In the first, “Che Bonaparte as Barbarian,” we saw how bizarre circumstances gave the world its first glimpse of this young woman with a big name, bigger ideas, and a future which hints the extraordinary. This third story picks up seven years after the first when she is now a mother of two. It can easily be read on its own. The series in order:1 – CHE BONAPARTE AS BARBARIAN2 – CHE BONAPARTE AS HERO3 – CHE BONAPARTE MUST DIE4 – CHE BONAPARTE MUST LIVE (coming 2018)WHO IS CHE BONAPARTE?She is a woman in her twenties and a contradiction in every way; she has a fighter’s instinct but preaches peace. Che was introduced to politics as a child by her father with political rallies and street demonstrations as her playgrounds. Her heroes ranged from peace icons Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi, to boxers Muhammad Ali and Rocky Balboa.Now, as an adult, Che is considered by those who know her as wise beyond her years; well versed in the lessons of history and driven by a contagious optimism for the future of humanity. Simplistic labels like right-wing or left-wing do not apply—she does things her way. And while sometimes Che can take chances that make others cringe, over time she develops a presence. People, who meet her, warm up to her; trust her. They sense something unusual and extraordinary, as if her current life is just preparation for something big and important. Then North Korea fires a missile at Japan and the world desperately seeks a saviour. Ready or not, Che Bonaparte is called.

Don’t Trust Me (Hamlet Book 1) by Jessica Lynch

Welcome to Hamlet. Population: 192.You can’t find it on any map, GPS or directions site. A small village tucked between a mountain and a valley, Hamlet is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone — and their business, too. There’s no television. No phones. Only one way in and, for the locals, barely any way out. The sheriff is the law, the only doctor moonlights as the coroner, and outsiders rarely come to town.Murders are even rarer.A treacherous storm, a flat tire and a touch of serendipity causes Tessa Sullivan and her husband Jack to stumble upon the narrow strait that leads into Hamlet. It was supposed to be a one night stop until the rain let up and Jack could figure out how to fix the tire — until Tess lands herself in the local jail cell overnight and Jack is found dead in their hotel room the next morning. There’s no doubt it was murder, but with his gentle wife having an airtight alibi, the sheriff has to wonder: who had any cause to kill the outsider?And was he only the first victim?Dr. De Angelis doesn’t think so. Neither does Deputy Walsh. With Tess looking more and more like the killer’s next target, both men take the time to comfort and protect the young widow. But only one of them is sincere. The other just wants her to himself now that her husband is out of the way.Alone and afraid, who can she trust?

FRY (The McBride Vendetta Psychological Thrillers Book 1) by Lorna Dounaeva

IndieReader.com’s Best Indie Books of 2013

‘A Breakneck Roller Coaster Ride’

She acts like she’s your new best friend, but is she really a deadly enemy?
When Isabel Anderson nearly runs over mysterious Alicia McBride, she is ridden with guilt. She helps Alicia get a job at the supermarket where she works, and soon, Alicia is acting like her new best friend. But then strange fires start to break out all over the small seaside town of Queensbeach, including at the caravan park where Alicia is staying. Isabel suspects Alicia knows more than she’s letting on and grows increasingly nervous when her friend Deacon invites Alicia to stay with him. But it’s Isabel the police suspect.

Determined to confront Alicia, Isabel bursts into her room and sees the word ‘FRY’ branded across her back in capital letters. From then on, she sees the word “FRY’ everywhere she goes: in graffiti, on toilet walls, even on car registration plates. Then her beloved cat, Fluffy, disappears and Isabel is convinced Alicia is behind it. She puts up posters all over her neighbourhood, but as fast as she puts them up, someone takes them down. Soon, a whole spate of fires is breaking out and Isabel must stay one step ahead of the flames and the police. In order to survive, she must question her own innocence, her sanity and the very fabric of her morality. Can she win back Deacon? And will she ever find Fluffy?

FRY is a very British fast-paced psychological thriller.

The Characters
Red-haired Isabel Anderson lives on a diet of tea and takeaways. She’s a junior manager at her local supermarket but she lacks ambition and her greatest passion in life is for shopping. She drinks too much, smokes too much and spends too much. She is also fiercely independent and lives alone with only her cat, Fluffy for company.

Deacon Frost is a good-natured but slightly opinionated doctor. He is well-built and used to work as a bouncer. He now lives in a beautiful beach house overlooking the sea. He ought to have everything, but he’s been single for many years.

Alicia McBride is new in town and dresses like a bedraggled orphan. She has an aura of wide-eyed innocence, but does something darker lurk beneath? What brings her to Queensbeach? And why now?

The Setting
Queensbeach is a fictional English seaside town, out of season. With all the tourists gone for winter, it feels a bit like a ghost town. The sky is almost permanently grey, making it the perfect setting for a chilling psychological thriller.

The style
FRY is a psychological thriller written in a conversational British style. If you like female led crime thrillers, then this is book is for you. It has romance, but there is also an intriguing mystery that will keep you guessing right up until the very last page.

Top of the free kindle download charts
At its launch, FRY was number one for free English language psychological thrillers on both Amazon Canada and Amazon Germany.
