One man has swiped bounties from Viola, the Brass Violet, for years. Longstanding rivals, they've only had brief encounters, and if she had a choice, she'd avoid him entirely. When he saunters into her bar with an offer to work together on a job, the proper response would be to shoot him down and send him back to Shantytown. However, curiosity's a wicked beast, and Viola needs to know why, after so many years of stealing her marks, he'd approach her now.
The man is insufferable, annoyingly cavalier, and tends to stir up memories she'd rather forget--but she needs assistance on this job and he's offering aid and blueprints which could cut their work in half.
Given the intense way he looks at her though, working together isn't all he has in mind. Van Clef is known for his persistence and, with his charm, he wins women over effortlessly. Viola's not so easy though--she's wise to his tricks. But if he wants to play the game, she will gladly rise to the challenge. By the end of this bounty, she'll be the one leaving him in the dust.
Martin Bernhard's life will never be the same. He thinks he killed his brother and thinks that his only possible escape is to sail with the Hindenburg. He is going to be a pawn in a game he doesn't control or understand.
Golpes do destino.
O Golpe do Destino, se refere a historia de ficção ambientada nos ano de 1971. Rosana é enteada de Cornélio e descobre que Adriano o homem ao qual se apaixona é filho ilegitimo de Cornélio. Daí fica um drama sobre o que é politicamente correto. Baseado em viagens no tempo onde Rosana tem uma segunda chance em vida e vida após morte.
Golpes do destino, trata-se de uma historia de ficção, ambientada nos anos setenta, tempos de chumbo da ditadura militar brasileira. Onde o silencio dominava as ruas.
Então nessa época nasce o amor entre Rosana e Adriano. Onde Rosana terá de descobrir o real significado do amor e ter duas chances para descobrir o real significado do amor.
Essa historia foi baseada em um sonho que tive a noite, quando acordei de repente eu ainda lembrava do sonho:
Uma mulher dormia no ônibus, ela estava de roupas sensuais, ela passa do ponto e desce num local quase escuro e medonho. Ela com medo de ser estrupada por desconhecidos pede a um dos passageiros que desceu do ônibus para a acompanhar, ela o conhecia de vista, este aceita, sonho é assim, só quando é pesadelo que as coisas ficam feias, parece que a gente os controla, bem aí ela e ele dentro da casa dela, batem um papo e um retrato na parede e o homem lhe fala:
- Esse homem é meu pai.
E ela responde:
- Não esse é meu pai.
Daí eu acordo. O resto tive de improvisar e aumentar. É um resumo dessa historia, mas pode ser aumentada se pegando todos os "ingredientes" e fazer um bolo. Nesse caso foi feito um livro.

Danielle Krome has disappeared with a handful of uncut diamonds worth a small fortune. She considers them as fitting payment for her many years of love and devotion to Boston underworld boss, Ari Zidel. At the time of her disappearance, she was risking her life as a pack mule in one of Zidel's many illegal enterprises, smuggling Blood Diamonds from Sierra Leone to Amsterdam. In a bloody ambush at a dingy little café out in the middle of nowhere, nearly everyone is killed... except Danielle Krome, who manages to escape with the shipment of diamonds.
Ari Zidel wants his diamonds back, and he wants revenge. Yet after nearly three years, he has all but given up on the thought of ever finding his mule or his diamonds. He has simply run out of places in the world to look. But in a stroke of almost unbelievable luck, Danielle Krome suddenly turns up in a photograph. She is a waitress at a restaurant in Malibu, California, where a drunken wedding party was held for Zidel's niece.
Realizing that going after her himself or sending one of his henchmen is almost guaranteed to scare her off, Zidel decides to send college Professor Jonathan Casey, a man who owes him a huge gambling debt from a losing ticket on a horse race. He instructs Casey to get the diamonds by whatever means he finds necessary. Unfortunately, none of them has any idea that other people are also seeking the diamonds and that they are now playing with a hornet's nest... until it is too late.
In a fast-paces thriller that takes us on a wild ride from Sierra Leone, to Amsterdam, to Boston, and finally to Los Angeles, David Schaefer has opened up a world of greed, treachery and murder, and finally the unlikely chance of change and hope and new beginnings. But first, Danielle Krome must make the choice between keeping a handful of diamonds or saving her own life.
If you're a fan of Deborah Harkness' "Shadow of Night" and "The Book of Life," you'll love this dark adventure.
"In terms of plot, this is top-notch. There's a lot going on here from the very first chapter. Is it much different from many fantasy books? In many ways, yes... There's a lot to get on top of here from the complexity of the characters to the complexity
of the fantasy world the author has invented so meticulously." ~ The Wishing Shelf

Sailing into the Bahamas, expecting a tropical paradise, a young adventurer comes face to face with the hard reality of a cruel world, when he is confronted with modern-day slave traders and bloodthirsty pirates preying on native islanders and unsuspecting yachtsmen in the Bermuda Triangle.
After rescuing a group of young islanders, Luke Canfield incurs the wrath of a South American warlord who hunts him for years across the Caribbean Basin leaving a trail of bodies, while abducting women that are sold into servitude to rich housewives in Miami, and Saudi Arabian pedophiles.
Inducted into the infancy of a burgeoning drug-smuggling trade between South America and the U.S. that would eventually feed the growing demand for marijuana and cocaine, Luke eventually joins forces with a secret military force, funded by the U.S. Government, that seeks to put an end to the rampant piracy and kidnappings that threatens to disrupt the billion-dollar tourist industry throughout the Caribbean.
In 1970, when the world's attention was focused on Southeast Asia, another war was being fought closer to home, in the crystal-clear waters from Miami to Cartagena, by evil men, practicing an ancient occupation, and only sheer determination and bloodletting will stop it!
This action-packed adventure reads like a travel guide, crisscrossing through the islands long before there were all-inclusive resorts lining the beaches throughout the Caribbean.

In "The Devil's Blacklist", Braeden Michaels gravitates to the darkest edges of the human mind and soul. The collection of almost two hundred poems revolves around lust, anger, self-destruction, self-reflection, love, and the love that generates rubble.
Braeden Michaels introduces a completely new form of poetry known as Deconstructive Literature, in which the author takes a thought, idea, scene, or emotion and deconstructs it only to rebuild it again, piece by piece, line upon line. Pulling out hidden flavors here and accentuating unknown colors there. Drawing one's attention to the underlying scent and undiscovered textures. The author mixes and remixes, not relying on conventional phrases or images, but rather pulls from something one might see from the corner of their eye instead.
Glimpses and flashes that make up the whole. Each line or thought building upon the previous one, brick stacked on brick, to achieve that final goal of bringing the reader in to not only visualize but also taste, smell, and hear the author's intended idea.
Billionaire inventor Nathaniel Blake has just evaded his security team. As he sits atop a bridge, mystery girl Eve steps from her car like an angel in the headlights. Soon, he's revealing secrets he never intended to share. In a world where everyone wants a piece of him, she might be the one woman he can finally love.
Without warning she vanishes from his life, and Nathaniel will do anything to find her.
Aaron Randall is Nathaniel's head of security, and Eve has just gotten him fired and evicted from his hotel. When she mistakenly offers him a place to stay, he isn't about to say no. Keeping her at a distance is easy, until it becomes impossible to live without her.
Eve hasn't let a man close to her in months, but things are about to change. Will she follow the dangerous path towards Nathaniel or the home she's built with Aaron...
From debut author Samantha Kately comes a dark love story that will have you question where your loyalties lie.

Return to Uncanny Valley
... the remarkable town supposedly destroyed in 1948, where paranormal is normal and the unusual is traditional. Now it reaches out from the past again through an extraordinary bundle of journals and documents that chronicle a season of the community's darkest hours.
It is 1909, and Uncanny Valley's tranquility is shattered by greed and distrust after the offer of a full-scale buyout by Tarkington Mining. Yet when the residents take blind Ben Driscoll's advice, "Don't sell," an even greater shadow quickly descends - one that uses human weakness as a weapon - and its purpose is darker than anyone can imagine.
Together, Norton Weiss, Emmett Fielding, and Roger Burlington try to counter the growing incidents of intimidation and destruction. But after an evening of unspeakably brutal murders, the whole town - both the living and the dead - has to strike back, using every strange skill and hidden secret at its disposal.
With Darkness in the Valley, author Gregory Miller has crafted a spellbinding novel, bringing back familiar characters from The Uncanny Valley and introducing many new ones, all of whom are indispensable to this small borderland community balanced precariously on the edge of two worlds.

REVIEW from Strangerviews.com
"Three Drops in Time consists of three short stories, written by Tony Jones, each of which uses time travel as a main element to the plot. I would like to start by admitting my jealousy of the author. Writing short stories is tough and to be able to write three such well plotted short stories with distinct and well rounded characters deserves applause. I know I couldn't do it."
Two thrilling mysteries by a Pulitzer nominee!
"IF YOU LIKE STRONG CHARACTERIZATIONS, GREAT DIALOGUE AND SURPRISES, PULITZER-NOMINEE LAWRENCE DE MARIA'S ALTON RHODE MYSTERIES ARE IN A CLASS BY THEMSELVES." (John Crudele, New York Post); "A LAWRENCE DE MARIA TITLE GIVES YOU MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK THAN JUST ABOUT ANYTHING IN THE BOOK MARKETPLACE TODAY." (Florida Weekly); "A MASTER OF THRILLER DIALOGUE." (Washington Independent Review of Books); "WHILE DE MARIA MAY HAVE BEEN AN AWARD-WINNING FINANCIAL REPORTER, HE'S AN AWFULLY GOOD FICTION WRITER AS WELL."
Was the nun's murder random? Part of a serial-killing spree? Or tied to something in her past? For Sister Veronica, a revered educator, had quite a past. Which brings two Massachusetts cops to the New York office of Alton Rhode. For he is part of Ronnie Frost's past. Quickly cleared as a suspect, but plagued by long-suppressed memories, Rhode travels the country seeking the suspects, clues and motive the police have missed.
"Very enjoyable. This is exactly the style book I enjoy, good old detective work." (Five-Star Amazon Review)
The brutal murder of an elderly Medal of Honor winner from the Vietnam War has unintended consequences. The hired killer, himself a proud veteran of more-recent American wars, feels betrayed by the people who paid him. He wants to settle the score. But there is a problem. The assassin, kept in the dark about his target, has no way of finding out who ordered the hit. But he knows someone who can. Someone he has trusted with his life in the past. Someone with a reputation for doing the impossible. His old skipper, Alton Rhode.
"De Maria's latest mystery proves that patriotism can come in many forms, not all of them pretty. GUNNER delivers a wallop!" (John Crudele, NEW YORK POST)
"What is really almost beyond belief is how easily De Maria has transitioned from the dry world of financial reporting to the wild and lavish world of novel writing." (COLLIER ...

I highly recommend Klaus for the whole family, July 10, 2011 By Readers Favorite "Book Reviews and Award Contest" (Hawesville, KY USA) -
Reviewed by Anne B.
Have you ever wondered how Santa Klaus met Mrs. Klaus? Michelle Erickson brings readers a delightful story of a princess and a carpenter.
Eralee's father is a River King and her mother is a Queen. They live in the forest of Everaude, a world filled with immortals and the Rashim (deer). Her parents planned a marriage for her to a river prince. She had no desire to marry him. When she saw a human freezing to death in the woods, she wanted to save him, although it was forbidden by her people.
The reader watches as Klaus and Eralee fall in love. Throughout this enchanted story the reader learns the answers to many Santa questions. The reader also meets several incredible secondary characters such as Dasher, Dancer and Vixen. Erickson explains why reindeer can fly and why their antlers glow. Eralee refused to give up the man she loves, no matter the cost.
Erickson combines romance, adventure, suspense, and humor to create one of the best Christmas tales I've ever read. Eralee's antics were very funny and her innocence was extremely heartwarming. This book will become a family favorite. I can see this tale making it to TV as a Christmas special. I highly recommend Klaus for the whole family...

She is supposed to marry a philandering river Prince.
She doesn't want him. She wants to save the human called Klaus.

She has plans for Klaus and they don't include Eralee.

Tom Brantley, A.K.A. SuperDrunk, is a complex superhero (or perhaps anti-hero?) who discovers that he has the unique power of psychokinesis whenever getting drunk or high.
Revered as Burlington City's guardian, he loves to put on a show for his beloved fans when saving lives and fighting crime, almost as much as partying and fornicating. Despite the citizens egging on his reckless behavior, his family and friends worry about his failing health. With each alcohol-induced blackout, Tom revisits his high school years. He recalls meeting his first love, Amy Cougar, and how she couldn't handle his shallow, celebrity lifestyle. But after consuming psychedelics - shrooms or magic mushrooms - it seems like his past exists as an odd parallel reality to his present life.
This sexy and thought-provoking dark superhero story takes readers over the edge and into the seedy world of SuperDrunk, where fighting bad guys and getting hot chicks might be nothing more than an escape for a washed-up loser trying to extricate himself from the realities of life.
In the near future, one man is going to bring the furthest reaches of the galaxy within the grasp of mankind. Meriwether Hawke has created a vehicle that folds space, changing the whole perspective of the space program in an instant. Unfortunately for Hawke, the first manned test vehicle doesn't end up where it's supposed to. Lost and without sufficient life support, the two-person crew must engage the automated distress beacon and then settle in for a deep cryogenic sleep to await potential rescue.
When Hawke is revived from cryosleep by an alien species, he quickly discovers that he is both their honored guest and guarded prisoner at the same time. It's no secret that they are extremely interested in his ancient dead spacecraft and its method of propulsion. While he may not be aware of how much time has passed, two things become evident to him: The alien species are sworn enemies of his people, and humanity has become both more and less technologically advanced in the years that have passed. Hawke may hold the only key to the rescue of a forgotten human colony.

Eight failed miserably but one still remained. The last chance for humankind to prove its worth- NUMBER THREE.

The year was 2011 - 25 years with no major conflicts in the Sicilian Mafioso was in jeopardy by the rash and unsanctioned actions of one man, Benito Grasso.
Enzo Grasso, Don of the largest Sicilian Mafia Family has only one son, Benito. Benito is the enforcer for the Grasso Organization, and an assassin for hire, often for foreign criminal operations such as Germany, most of Eastern Europe and three for the Russians - all without the knowledge or blessings of his father.
Benito carried many a grudge. Number one on his list is Giuseppe Salerno's Family. The Salerno's, with blessings of his father and all the other Sicilian Dons, had seceded from the Sicilian Mafia in April of 2009.
The Salernos had developed a legitimate arms and weapons operation, registered in the U.S., Saudi Arabia and the European Union. Paolo, Giuseppe Salerno's brother was on the brink of inking a contract with Israel and Mexico. Contract sales to various governments were just shy of fifty times the dollar value sold illegally or to the Mafia families. It was income which was legal and helpful in laundering monies from criminal organizations. Giuseppe gave 10% of his profits to the Table to be split among all the families out of respect.
Benito, seeing his father as week for releasing the Salernos, had nothing but contempt for the agreement. Such a thing had never happened in the violent history of the Sicilian mob. He believed Enzo should have followed the examples of great Capos from the past. They would have eliminated the Salernos simply for asking, then taken over the lucrative operation themselves.
Benito made a huge mistake when he brought up the subject in front of other Families. Benito had chosen the day when all the other Dons were assembled to make the final decision regarding the Salernos.
Enzo was enraged by his son's lack of respect for the Table - especially for him. Benito was rebuked to the point of humiliation by his father. Enzo chastised him severly ...

'The stories are atmospheric, fast-moving, ingenious and very enjoyable.' - Roger Johnson, The District Messenger
Inspector Lestrade was a worried man. He was facing the biggest case of his career. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and the Governor of the Bank of England had learnt through a variety of sources - a private bank in Vienna, an Anglophile moneylender in Munich, a reliable tip off from the Casino in Monte Carlo - that Britain's enemies were trying to debase the currency. Sherlock Holmes has retired to keep his bees in Sussex, Dr Watson is curing the sick. So Lestrade turns to Holmes's elder brother Mycroft, still keeping to his unchanging routine between his rooms in Pall Mall, the Government Offices where he audits all Government Departments, and the silent quarters of the Diogenes Club. Mycroft tracks the gang through the banks and Treasuries of Europe, his brain travelling faster than the swiftest express train.
Will Mycroft and Lestrade solve the mystery? And who is the mysterious stranger who led them to the gang's hiding place and then vanished, last seen striding rapidly into the fog?
David Dickinson's brilliant new short novel will appeal to fans of Sherlock Holmes, of detective fiction, and of historical mysteries. It recreates the style and atmosphere of the original stories, but with a compelling new character. The first in a news series, it will establish Mycroft as a worthy successor to his more famous brother.
