Devil’s Due (Luther Cross Book 1) by Percival Constantine

Half-human. Half-demon. All attitude.Luther Cross here. Dangerously handsome, effortlessly stylish half-demon, at your service. As I have inherited certain…abilities with my odd genetics, I’ve put them to use as Chicago’s foremost paranormal investigator. My current case? Well, I have to admit, it feels a little personal. I’m helping a mysterious girl who’s turned up on my doorstep, pregnant through mystic means. I can’t help but think of my own mother…and if I don’t help her, she’ll face the same fate. Turns out, someone is trying to create an army of half-demons. While it might be a pleasant change to hang out with my own kind, I know most half-demons don’t have my sense of morality. If I don’t stop this evil plan, the armistice between Heaven and Hell will be broken and all of the Earth will pay… It will be the beginning of the end.

DEVOLUTION: A Sam Jameson Espionage & Suspense Thriller by Lars Emmerich

“Sharp, extremely well written, and scary as hell!”“The best writing in decades.”What would it take to put our way of life at risk?Is it possible for a handful of ultra-deep players to cripple the global economy?A secret organization with immense wealth and limitless influence squares off against The Establishment in this #1 Bestselling financial conspiracy thriller from espionage master Lars Emmerich.As the clandestine conflict reaches an explosive flashpoint, Special Agent Sam Jameson, a brash, ballsy, and beautiful spy catcher, is cast headlong into the crossfire. The love of her life is missing, the victim of a brutal and terrifying kidnapping. Will she unravel the ruthless conspiracy in time to save his life? Can she save her own?The characters are vivid, the facts are exquisitely researched, and the plot is gripping and frightening… because the threat is more real than we’d like to imagine.Book One in the worldwide bestselling Devolution Series will leave you wondering how safe we really are.————Interview with #1 Bestselling Author Lars EmmerichQ: Who are your influences?A: Too many to list! I started out years ago as a Tom Clancy addict, and I thoroughly enjoy many of Nelson DeMille’s novels. I regularly read David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly, and John Grisham. James Patterson has redefined what it means to be a working author, and I read his stuff as well. My top picks are usually espionage and private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring classic pulp heroes. And I’m greatly influenced by all sorts of nonfiction, as well. I read all the time, and I’m a bit of a magpie about the topics — science, economics, finance, politics, history, mathematics, engineering, biomechanics, medicine… It’s a big world out there, and I love learning more about it. Many of those topics find their way into my fiction, so I can justify it all as “research.” Q: The Sam Jameson series has become quite a phenomenon. What do you think has been the driving force behind the books’ success?A: I think Sam has something of a unique voice. She says the things we all wish we could say, and she gets away with it about half of the time. The other half of the time, not so much. I think she’s also a very human heroine. She has plenty of flaws and weaknesses, yet she accomplishes some amazing things. She’s kind of like every one of us in that regard, which resonates.Q: You have developed personal relationships with your readers over the years, which is unusual in the publishing business. Was that a conscious choice?A: Absolutely. Books are intimate things. They occupy a person’s mind and thoughts for hours at a time. Good books leave a lasting impression, and great books might even change the way we think about things, but all books are a relationship. I felt that Big Publishing did a great job of distributing novels, but at a very high cost — there was almost no way for a personal connection to form between writers and readers. But I always wanted a conversation. I wanted to learn from my readers, to hear what was on their minds, to listen to their criticism and hopefully improve the books I write. It’s been extremely rewarding, and I’m hopeful it can continue for years to come.

And attractive…The sequel, Molly Miranda: Thick as Thieves, out now!Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series or comedies by Meg Cabot. Recently reached #3 in Women’s Adventure and #4 in Humor & Satire (American) on Amazon!Praise for Molly Miranda”How much fun is this? I’m loving the debut from Hamilton–now I need more about her sassy, sometimes awkward and always brave heroine, Molly Miranda. Stealing other people’s stuff has never been so charming. Bravo!”- Patti Larsen, award-winning author of the Hayle Coven series”It’s tense and smart-alecky. It’s likeable without being sweet. It’s sexy and tough, and as apt to kick you in the pants as to kiss you on the cheek.”- Award-winning author Leo McKay Jr.”Molly Miranda is a fun read with some good messages of self awareness and identity laced through the humour and suspense.”- Author Natalie Corbett SampsonAuthor Q&ATell us about Molly Miranda. What makes her tick?Molly Miranda is in her early twenties and has a pretty average life- except for the fact that she makes her living by stealing big ticket items like art, jewelry and the odd historical artifact. She doesn’t really consider herself good at anything else and gets twitchy when she’s not out on assignment. She feels safest when she’s just acquired a hefty amount of cash as money equals stability. For Molly, financial security equals happiness. Have you always been interested in thieves in fiction? If not, why now?Not specifically. I knew I wanted to make Molly a criminal. I initially considered making her a hired assassin but thought it might be easier to make her a likeable character if her crime didn’t physically hurt anyone so I made her a burglar who steals items from people who can afford to have things stolen from them. Plus, my book is a comedy. Much easier to make a book funny and light-hearted if nobody is being murdered. Once I decided to make her a thief, I did some research and became fascinated. Obsessed, even. I think I could pull of a decent heist if the opportunity ever came up. What sort of research went into Thief For Hire?I basically inhaled Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief by Bill Mason. Such a fantastic read. Unbelievable. I also read Catch Me If You Can by Frank Abagnale, The Rescue Artist by Edward Dolnick, The Thefts of the Mona Lisa by Noah Charney (Charney is a fantastic wealth of art theft information) and The Gardner Heist by Ulrich Boser. I’ve also watched a lot of documentaries on art forgeries, art thefts and famous thieves like Bonnie and Clyde.(Courtesy of author John L. Monk)
