Death on Tyneside - Review by Martha A. Cheves

 

"You want to be involved in solving this murder case.  Hasn't it sunk in yet how close you came to being murdered yourself, the last time you poked your nose into a murder inquiry?"

"Alan, I know I very nearly got myself killed a few months ago."  Agnes took his arm and they restarted their walk down the corridor.  "But I got through that.  Look at me.  I'm still here - alive and well, and ready to be involved in this case.  If the body had been found by someone else, then I might have stayed out of it.  Might,"  she repeated, wagging her finger at him.  "But it wasn't.  It was found by me.  And now I want to see it through."  She stopped walking and swung around in front of him.  "Alan, please, I need to see this through."


Agnes Lockwood has returned to Tyneside after spending a few weeks visiting her sons in Australia.  This is where she was from and the ties were pulling her back.  Or was it Chief Inspector Alan Johnson who was connected to those ties?  The two had gone to school together and Alan had always had a crush on her.  Now, after marriages and many years, they met again and Alan finds his feelings are still there and stronger than ever.  

 

In her first visit, she and Alan had eaten dinner and were walking back to her hotel when they found a body laying on the sidewalk.  The investigation into this murder almost got Agnes killed.  Now she's back and finds herself in the middle of yet another murder.

 

I've read everything Eileen Thornton has written and must say that she grabs me from the beginning and all the way through to the end.  She fills her writings with twists and turns that keep you guessing and flipping the pages to see what happens next.  I love her work and can't wait for Book 3 of the Agnes Lockwood Mysteries.

My Life for Her - Review by Martha A. Cheves

 

With so many commuters bustling about, it was difficult to catch sight of the supposed drug dealer, but Tex spotted him as he slipped onto the train at the last minute.  As Rob followed him to the seats closest to the front door, Tex lowered his voice to a whisper and said, "That dude's either a crooked cop or a member of the cartel.  Worse, I think he's onto us.  We've gotta get rid of him, before our cover's blown."


Rob looked toward the rear of the car.  "Yeah, the dude gives me a bad feeling too."


Tex was silent as the attendant came around to check their tickets, but then he whispered, "Listen, Doc, if he comes into this car, we'll get up and head to the one in front.  You go through the door first, and I'll wait for him behind it."


"Then what?" Rob asked.


"Then... Well, I think I can handle it from there," Tex said with a grin.

 

Rob Marrino, is a 31 year old Vietnam Vet who is now a Pikeville, NJ policeman.  Life has had its up and downs as he and his wife Beth Anne deal with wartime memories and paranoia.  They have settled down quite well with Beth Anne working at the hospital while their two children are in school.  Then the bottom falls out when Rob does a high speed chase with a car that not only contains 2 Colombian drug runners but more drugs than the Pikeville police have ever seen.  It gets even worse when one of the  dealers is shot and killed with the surviving one promising Rob that he will pay for his interference.  Those words come back to haunt him when his worse nightmare comes true and he, along with a fellow Vet, end up in Columbia. 

 

This book is so intent!  It's filled with action and narrow escapes.  I would like to see this one made into a "Made for TV Movie."

The Future. Humanity has spread through the galaxy, along with innumerable other races and creatures. In the thousands of solar systems that men have reached you’ll find monarchies, dictatorships, anarchies, utopia, dystopia, and utter chaos. But one slightly stumbling thread weaves through every world, every society– The Interstellar Bartenders Guild.As man took the leap out it seems that bartenders had something to do with it. These are stories of how they provided the shove for said leap. There are fistfights, love and lust, exotic bars, drunks, and a Guild Master with a mystery. Most of all you’ll find people- good, bad, lost, found, and somewhere in the middle. Mankind has grasped the stars but the problems that have been around since a thousand year ago are still with them a thousand years from now. Good thing they have the Bartenders of the Guild to help them solve their problems. Sometimes you run into people who change your life for the best even while at their worst, regardless of what star you are circling. Those people are called Bartenders.TALES OF THE INTERSTELLAR BARTENDERS GUILD. From Pro Se Productions.

Bobby's story in this anthology collection is called Ol' Jake. Ol’ Jake was not unique in the galaxy. Stop by any bar at any of the planets along the galactic arm the locals referred to as the Antares Beltway and you’ll find Ol’ Jake there. He’ll be the one behind the bar, slinging drinks and entertaining the guests. He might not always look the same-- and sometimes he might actually be a she or an it depending on your destination-- but at the core, each and every one of them is ‘Ol Jake. Ol’ Jake was an android barkeep and this is his story. Well, one of them at least.

The Haunted Heist - Angie Fox, Author

 

The Haunted Heist - Review by Martha A. Cheves

Frankie had the power to show me the supernatural world.  With his help, I'd been able to see and interact with some of the ghosts here in town.  We'd saved my house; we'd solved a murder.  Two of them, actually.  We'd made some positive changes in Sugarland, not that he cared about helping anyone but himself.  And I had been trying to free him.  It was just that nothing had worked yet.

So who is this Frankie that has the power to take Verity Long into the supernatural?  Why is she trying to free him and from what?  These are just some of the fun questions that you can find the answers to by reading the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Series.  I will tell you that Frankie lives in a trash can and Verity lives in a house she inherited from her grandmother.  But the fun part was learning how Frankie ended up in the trash can and why Verity is living in a house with no furnishings.

From the very first two books in this series - Southern Spirits and The Skeleton in the Closet, I found myself caught up in the suspense of a murder with a touch of humor.  I've laughed at the very odd pet that lives with Verity and how Frankie tends to get her into trouble in a world that most would never dream of visiting.  I feel for her as she struggles to make ends meet after her almost mother-in-law took everything away from her.  I feel joy for her as her feelings for Ellis grow.  And I hold my breath as she risks her own life to bring justice to those who need it.  This is a series that I hope will never end and I'm really looking forward to reading Book 4 in the series - Deader Homes & Gardens.

The Mystery Behind Artifact Theft

Ancient American artifacts are being sold to the highest bidder. When an ancient ruin is discovered, it doesn’t take long for thieves to find out about it.

In one of my blog posts, I wrote about the challenge of writing mysteries. This time we're going to talk about the mystery behind artifact theft. Archaeological thievery is becoming more and more of a problem every year but Utah’s vandalism is the worst in the country. Theft at the Four Corners area of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona is still a big problem. The damage to these sites is estimated at almost $42,000 in two year’s time. An ancient funeral pit can be sold for as high as sixty thousand dollars on the black market, not to mention pottery, baskets, and pendants found by looters.

Who's stalking Negative Man?

Who is that not-so-subtle government agent following Negative Man in Doom Patrol episode 2? You see him back there with the sunglasses, watching ever so closely? Can he be trusted? Who does he work for? Why does he seem so familiar? (hint: he's me) Should DC have him appear again? (the answer to that last one is a big ol' YES!)

Thanks to Earth Station DCU podcast host Drew Leiter for sharing the screen capture. I haven't been able to watch yet. Speaking of ESDCU, I'll be on their show next week talking Snow Falls, which was just released as an audio book as well as my appearance in this episode.

I'm not in the last photo, but this was the location. I'm standing beside the bus on the right.

Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of a notorious criminal mastermind. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.

That was then.

They thought they had put their game playing days behind them, but now, their hated enemy has returned with a brand-new deadly game where the stakes are life and death for not only Bartlett and West, but for all those Darrin Morehouse felt betrayed him. It is a long list and Detective Bartlett's name tops it. With time running out and an army of killers on their trail, it is up to Bartlett and West to win this game. The cost of losing is death.

Deadly Games! is a fast-paced action/thriller featuring action, suspense, murder, and the occasional gunfire from award-winning author Bobby Nash.

BEN Books is making Bobby Nash’s DEADLY GAMES! available on Kindle for $2 off suggested retail price in February at Amazon US and Amazon UK. As always, you can read this, and other BEN Books releases for FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

I'm often asked why I promote my books as much as I do. This recent NY Times article might shed some light on the answer. Does it pay to be a writer? Sometimes the answer is no. A timely article for me since I've recently been screwed out of pay by a publisher and a bookstore where I did a signing.

I'm not looking for pity or encouragement here. Just sharing the article. However, if you'd like to buy a book or three, that would be cool too. :)
