The Templar Concordat by Terrence OBrien

When the truth is your greatest danger, and the enemy knows the truth, things can only go downhill when the enemy finally gets the proof. And that’s the proof the Hashashin get when they steal what the Vatican doesn’t even know it has. Now the infallible decrees of two Twelfth Century popes and three kings, stolen by the Hashashin, threaten to catapult the bigotry, bias, and religious blood baths of the Third Crusade straight into the Twenty-First Century. When Templars Sean Callahan and Marie Curtis are drawn into the mess, they face an ancient enemy that has already nearly won the battle, a newly elected Mexican pope being undermined by entrenched Vatican powers, world class scholars who will sell their prestige to the highest bidder, and terrorists lingering over lattes in sidewalk cafes. Moving from Rome to London, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia, Callahan and Curtis are desperate to find some way to stem the success the Hashashin are having enlisting the majority of moderate Muslims in their Jihad. Out maneuvered at each step by the Hashashin, only a last ditch roll of the dice has any chance of success. But it’s the only chance they have.”If you loved the idea of Dan Brown’s bestsellers, but weren’t socrazy about all the arty esoterica, Terrence O’Brien’s The TemplarConcordat could hit your sweet spot….” Kindle Nation Daily “I loved this book and am still kicking myself for resisting its sirencall for so long. The history and details woven skillfully into the action and well rounded characters made for an exciting read…” -Sandra Gilbert      122,000 words – appx 400 pages

Forty Days at Kamas by Preston Fleming

Inspired by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of a Soviet labor camp revolt in Gulag Archipelago, Volume III, the story of FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS follows political prisoners and security officials at a corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, where inmates seize control during the summer of 2024.SYNOPSIS:Kamas, Utah. 2024. In the totalitarian dystopia that America has become after the Unionist Party’s rise to power, the American West contains vast Restricted Zones dotted with ghost towns, scattered military garrisons and corrective labor camps where the regime disposes of its real and suspected enemies. Kamas is one such camp.On a frigid March night, a former businessman from Pittsburgh, Paul Wagner, arrives at a labor camp in Utah’s Kamas Valley, a dozen miles east of the deserted resort town of Park City, which prisoners are dismantling as part of a massive recycling project.When Wagner arrives, he is unaware that his eleven-year-old daughter, Claire, has set off to Utah to find him after becoming separated from her mother at the Philadelphia Airport. By an odd quirk of fate, Claire has traveled on the same train that carried her father into internal exile.Only after Wagner has renounced all hope of survival, cast his lot with anti-regime hard-liners and joined them in an unprecedented and suicidal revolt does he discover that Claire has become a servant in the home of the camp’s Deputy Warden. Wagner is torn between his devotion to family and loyalty to his fellow rebels until, on the eve of an armored assault intended to crush the revolt, he faces an agonizing choice between a hero’s death and a coward’s freedom.In FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS, author Preston Fleming offers a stirring portrait of a man determined to survive under the bleakest of conditions and against formidable odds. Fleming’s gift for evocative prose brings the characters and events to life in a way that arouses emotional tension while also engaging the reader’s intellect with fundamental questions about the future of American society.

The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

In their very first adventure, Tommy and Tuppence uncover an audacious plot to destroy Great BritainIn postwar London, childhood friends Tommy Beresford and Prudence “Tuppence” Cowley are having a grand old time—except for the fact that they can barely afford a pot of tea between them. With no jobs to be had and no rich relations to bankroll them, they decide to form a joint venture: Young Adventurers, Ltd. They’re willing to go anywhere and do anything so long as the pay as right. Maybe, suggests Tuppence, a clergyman’s daughter, they’ll even get to steal a diamond necklace.Before Tommy can place their first advertisement, Tuppence gets a job offer. Mr. Whittington wants to send her to Paris for three months, all expenses paid. The catch is that she has to pretend to be someone else—an American—and she can’t talk to anyone she knows while she’s there. It sounds too good to be true, and when Tuppence tries to protect herself with a pseudonym—“Jane Finn,” an odd name that Tommy recently overheard—Whittington’s reaction is equal parts anger and admiration. Accusing Tuppence of blackmail, he gives her fifty pounds and disappears.Of course, the Young Adventurers refuse to leave it at that. Setting out to find the mysterious Jane Finn, they stumble into a deadly conspiracy that stretches all the way back to the sinking of the Lusitania and now threatens to undo everything England won in the Great War.By transforming two of London’s bright young things into fearless detectives, Agatha Christie’s second novel revolutionized the mystery genre.This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

JET by Russell Blake

Code name: JetTwenty-eight-year-old Jet was once the Mossad’s most lethal operative before faking her own death and burying her Israeli intelligence identity forever.But the past doesn’t give up on its secrets easily.When her new life on a tranquil island is shattered by a brutal attack, Jet must return to a clandestine existence of savagery and deception to save herself and those she loves. A gritty, unflinching roller-coaster of high-stakes twists and shocking turns, JET features a new breed of protagonist that breaks the mold.Fans of Lisbeth Salander, SALT, and the Bourne trilogy will find themselves carried along at Lamborghini speed to a conclusion as jarring and surprising as the story’s heroine is unconventional.This is the first* novel in the JET series. The series is composed of the following books:JET – Ops Files (prequel) JET – Ops Files, Terror Alert (prequel)JET *JET – BetrayalJET – VengeanceJET – ReckoningJET – LegacyJET – JusticeJET – Sanctuary JET – SurvivalJET – Escape  + + +Q & A w/ Russell BlakeQ: How would you describe JET?Russell: The elevator pitch? Kill Bill meets Bourne. The longer version would be that JET follows the saga of a young woman who thought she had left a brutal covert life behind her, but finds herself having to go back into that world when she is attacked by enemies from her past.Q: How does JET differ from your other novels?R: I’ve never written anything nearly as lightning-paced. It’s completely and joyously over the top in the way a Bond film is. I wanted this to read like being in a Scarab, slamming through the waves at ninety miles per hour – a rush that just doesn’t stop. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. But having said that, what’s weird about JET is that even though it’s brimming with action, crafting artful prose was a priority for me, and I think I struck a balance that’s unusual and evocative. Whatever it is, it seems to work,Q: JET’s character is different than the other female protagonists you’ve written. What inspired her?R: I got this idea when I was writing Silver Justice for a total kick-ass, take-no-prisoners, over the top female operative – sort of a female Jack Bauer crossed with James Bond, but way more deadly. From that idea came the seeds of an incredible story with more twists and surprises than I’ve ever tried for. But it also has a different sensibility. If there’s such a thing as literary fiction action thrillers, I guess this might be it.Q: Why the Mossad?R: I wanted something that was exotic and had the reputation as highly effective, but wanted to avoid the usual CIA or KGB operative. And she’s way too no-nonsense for MI6. That didn’t leave a lot of choices. So the Mossad it was. I’d written an ex-Mossad operative once before in The Voynich Cypher & I think I sort of automatically leaned in that direction, and before I knew it the book was written.Q: Your work has been described as cinematic. Why?R: That’s how I think. I see each episode or scene in my head, and then I write what I see. I try to provide enough depth so the reader is with me, but not so much that page flipping to get to the next good part is required. But I see each chapter as a scene – it’s just how my brain works. I’m a creation of a modern world, raised on images and films, so I think that naturally affects my storytelling. Certainly the JET books are. Mission Impossible comes to mind.Q: Will there be more JET?R: Absolutely. The series is now up to eight novels, including the prequel to this one, JET – Ops Files, which lays out how it all began. How many more JET novels will there be? Hard to say. When I get tired of writing them I’ll be sure to let everyone know…Q: You mention Kill Bill and Bourne. How is JET similar?R: I loved Tarantino’s take because it was so completely overblown in every way. Deliberately so. I wanted JET to read like that film played, but with a story more like Bourne.

Your voice is crisp and natural, carrying the reader into lives of the characters and the world you have created seamlessly.’ – Lauren Grey, author of ‘Threads of Time’.’I love your historicals. They feel so real. I can already tell this one is excellent. The back and forth between Emma’s modern life and Jennet’s 18th century life is tantalizing.’ – Laura Emmons, author of ‘Seeing Magic’ and ‘Healing Hands’.’…a wonderful piece of writing.’ – Lin Churchill, author of ‘Pride’.’Overall I can see this attracting readers of both contemporary and historical fiction. It seems that it will gravitate around characters and relationships so perhaps it may have more appeal to women. It was a pleasure to read, Karen and it’s setting up the connection between past and present very well’ – Lesa Clarke, author of ‘The Glass House’.’Wow, I’ve never been into ghost stories before, but this is great!’ – Lesley Taylor, author of ‘Heart-Brother’ and ‘Changeling’.’Startling but extremely accurate use of language . . . Very emotive and skilfully handled . . . I found your writing fluid and accurate but more importantly, completely enthralling.’ – R.M.A., author of ‘The Snow Lily’.’This is terrific.’ – Chris Bostic, author of ‘Game Changer’ and ‘Fugitives From Northwoods”As always, your writing is impressive and so is your knowledge of boats. You have clearly taken the time to research the area, the herbs and other various concepts within your book, and it shows and makes the story that much stronger throughout. I really enjoyed this book, truly, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it. Well done.’- Claire C Riley, author of ‘Limerence”I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way. I can see this has taken you some time to plan out as I can see the way you start a part of the story to know how that particular part is going to end. There is a really nice narrative here coupled with a brilliant flow and pace to it. You have done well and I like this a lot.’ – Sean Connolly, author of. British Army on the Rampage. (B.A.O.R)
