Before he slid into the MRI machine, Jake Bronson was just an ordinary guy with terminal cancer. But when an earthquake hits during the procedure, Jake staggers from the wreckage a profoundly changed man, now endowed with uncanny mental abilities. 

An ocean away, Luciano Battista wants a piece of Jake's talent. Posing as a pioneering scientist, the terrorist leader has been conducting cerebral-implant experiments in a sinister quest to create a breed of super jihadist agents...and Jake's altered brain may be the key to his success. But Jake refuses to play the pawn in an unholy war--and when an innocent woman and autistic child are taken hostage to force his cooperation, he embarks on a jihad of his own.

Jake and his band of loyal friends are thrust into a deadly chase that leads from the canals of Venice through Monte Carlo and finally to an ancient cavern in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan--where Jake discovers that his newfound talents carry a hidden price that threatens the entire human race.

Synopsis

A 2014 Audies Finalist!

Bestselling author Richard Bard returns with his highly rated Brainrush thriller series, pitting hero Jake Bronson against his jihadist nemesis--and a new bioweapon that threatens the soul of every mother in America.

When a freak accident gave Jake Bronson near-superhuman mental powers and landed his loved ones in the crosshairs of an Islamic terrorist, the only way out was with guns blazing. But Jake was unable to put a stop to his nightmares or his murderous nemesis, Luciano Battista, in that ferocious Afghan mountains showdown. Now the terror czar and his minions have brought the fight to American soil--along with the most terrifying bioweapon that has ever threatened the free world. They demand vengeance, and Jake's family and friends are caught in the crossfire.

From California's beaches and Mexico's deserts to the depths of a raging underground river and the treacherous Venezuelan jungle, Jake and his unlikely alliance of combat veterans and gangsters wage a rolling war of wits, weapons, and indomitable will--to rescue those they love, to save America from extinction, and to stop a madman's bid for global conquest dead in its tracks.

Synopsis

With Publishers Weekly heralding the first book in his Brainrush thriller series as “terrifically entertaining” and “inventive and compelling,” Beyond Judgment, the third in the series, sees hero Jake Bronson at the mercy of his hidden past.

After waking up with amnesia from a six-year coma, Jake Bronson’s past is lost to him. But that doesn’t mean the past hasn’t been looking for him—or that it will let him live when it finally catches up. Jake’s placid, anonymous life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him—and he has no idea why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills.

As unknown enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long dead. Any happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that—should it fall into the wrong hands—could trigger the extinction of the human race. Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s ultimate judgment.

View full details

Synopsis

‘Whoever did this wanted to make very sure no one lived to tell the tale.’

Money, murder and love on the high seas

In the world of international shipping, the rules are blurred and the oceans lawless

When instinct tells maritime claims investigator Angus McKinnon that a wave of frauds must be connected, he thinks it’s just business as usual. Instead, he uncovers a ruthless conspiracy born of greed and the lust for power.

As he starts to unravel a trail leading from the post-Soviet drabness of a Black Sea port to a sweltering anchorage in the Gulf of Thailand, a devastating explosion in the Indian Ocean changes everything.

Facing down terrifying childhood memories, torn between two very different women and doubting old friends, McKinnon must navigate a precarious path between secretive government agencies, shady syndicates and avaricious crime lords towards an unpredictable endgame.

Gambling everything on his faith in one man, can McKinnon beat the odds and come out on top?

A gripping page-turner, Sea of Gold draws the reader into a world of extremes, the casual affluence of the super-rich contrasting with the dignified poverty of the desperate. Meanwhile, McKinnon’s two loves – the enigmatic Claire and his devoted, long-term lover, Eleni, vie for his attention.

This debut thriller from Nick Elliott is packed with intrigue – if you love your action spiced with suspense, make Sea of Gold your next read.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT SEA OF GOLD

"Elliott ticks all the boxes in this fast-paced yarn, with a keen eye for descriptive detail and solidly drawn characters. The first-person narrative, complete with ironic asides, is the perfect vehicle for a thoughtful and witty style that draws us swiftly into the shoes of its protagonist, a credible and consistent character."

"The sense of place is utterly authentic. We are taken to far-flung locations - some exotic, some seedy - by an author who has not just visited them but has lived and worked in these places. Nick Elliott has an effortless elegance in his writing, and an ability to create characters who feel real. The story zips along at a fine pace, and the result is a gripping and immersive thriller."

"Angus is good company as he unravels a very twisty plot and discovers an unexpected level of determination (stubbornness?) in getting to the bottom of the mystery and catching the villains, all the while trying to be loyal to his fiery Greek girlfriend while fighting his attraction to a woman from his past."

“A blistering and breathless psychological thriller guaranteed to hold you captive...” (Bestthrillers.com)

City girl Amy seems to have it all—the high-flying job, the designer wardrobe, a beautiful home. But beneath the successful façade, Amy has secrets she’d rather her bully-boy boss Ed didn’t discover—like her troubled past and the little voice she hears in her head…
When a junior colleague is murdered, Amy’s fragile equilibrium is shattered. She suspects a client’s fraud links Ed to the killing, but is her paranoia working overtime?
As Ed tries to discredit her, Amy fears for her job, her sanity and her life. But she’s a tough professional, not a quitter, and somehow she must find a way to fight back...

Synopsis

Carter is a man who lives for his work. The more dangerous, the better. The more remote, ditto. Anything that’ll keep him on the move; anything that won’t leave him a moment free to reflect on what he gave up, and what he lost due to neglect.
He’s the one that Special Agent Vernon Saunders calls, when he needs a precision tool to remove what threatens the security of the citizens. He’s the one he sends to have a chat with US diplomats overseas, about any alarming developments in their part of the world.

Then suddenly, those alarming developments move stateside. The problem lands on Carter’s shoulders. His directive is simple. Find the source of deadly riots that are sweeping the country—and end it all. The vicious riots, however, have no source, no reason, no focus. They just erupt spontaneously and leave streets littered with bodies. Carter is forced to seek help from the most unlikely source—a reclusive historian who is hell bent on saving something that shouldn’t exist in the first place. She claims the solution to the growing crisis lies in searching through ancient myths and legends. But how do you put in a report to your boss that an ancient curse is ravaging the population, and that the riots will not stop until the one who was seeded with this curse is dead—or that the civilization is doomed if nothing’s done and quickly.

Synopsis

The Wall Street Journal #1 bestselling author Richard Bard, who entertained fans with his wildly successful Brainrush thriller series, now unleashes the heart-pounding series finale in a two-book ride that will take your breath away.

Jake Bronson's family and friends are mourning him. They'd watched as he sacrificed himself so their lives could return to normal. But normal wasn't to be. The megalomaniac whom Jake had killed during his suicide assault left a legacy of videos that damn Jake and everyone associated with him, leading to a price being put on their heads, dead or alive. They go to ground, unaware their every move is being tracked by a new breed of young, tech-savvy jihadists about to unleash vengeance on America's homeland--with Jake's family and the unsuspecting citizens of Los Angeles in their crosshairs.

As the jaws of the terrorist trap begin to close, Jake's eight-year-old son, Alex, faces a threat of his own. He carries a deadly secret that endangers the world, and now that his father is dead, Alex is the only one who can deal with it. He slips away to heed the call of unearthly visions that demand his presence, and his journey draws him to the back alleys of Bogota, Columbia, where he encounters a group of terminally ill orphans. One of their siblings has been abducted by child traffickers. Alex can't ignore their cry for help, and the unlikely alliance plans a nothing-to-lose rescue mission that has little chance of success.

But the bloodthirsty outcry against Alex's family and friends reaches beyond those who wish them harm, as do the visions that reveal their dark secrets to Alex. Help is on the way...

An "international thriller with soul." Ideal reading for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

Synopsis

The award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.

Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.

Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The story masterfully combined various threads and powered along through to an explosive finale. This is sure to be a classic once more people hear of it. Amazed this is the author's first book." - Amazon Customer.

"I was loving it so much... Before I was even half way through this book I went back to this site to see if it listed a sequel... can hardly wait!" - Sheila LS, Amazon Reviewer

"It is a fast-paced and action-packed book with three very different but very sympathetic main characters who will in turn make you laugh, cry and really, really want a dog!" - AlbaR, Amazon Reviewer

"Bandit, Chase and Sully keep this amazing story moving at a fast and furious pace. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this hard to put down book." - JMP, Amazon Reviewer.

"Jo Ho’s screenwriting background is clearly evident in the pacing, which takes all of the time necessary to tell the story and describe the setting and characters but wastes no words doing so... I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.

Synopsis

Forced to call on resources she didn't know she possessed and thrust headlong into the violence of a situation for which nothing could have prepared her, Stella’s suddenly face to face with the stark reality of medical experimentation and its horrifying consequences.

But in a world of uncertainties, she’s sure of one thing - this hero stuff really isn't her. Normal, or as near as damn it is what she wants, and if that means smothering her instincts and adjusting her expectations well so be it. At least she'll know should she slip off the wagon occasionally, it'll be choice not chance, and to suit herself.

Isn't it a fact though, just when you think you've got yourself on track, events can overtake and derail you?

Relatively Strange, the first in the Strange Series introduces Stella; her irreverent sense of humour, the conviction she always knows best and an overdeveloped sense of justice. Throw into the mix a complete inability to keep her nose out of other people's business and some serious psi abilities, and results are as unpredictably uncomfortable as you might expect.

Synopsis

‘My name is Madeleine, Madeleine Ross. It is a name chosen with thought and because it is classy, and that is what is needed here…’

Madeleine Ross has life exactly as she planned it.
Cosy cottage, friendly village, satisfying job.
Company… when she wants it.

It’s an enviable existence for an independent young woman, and one she’s keen to protect.

Enter Daniel – strong, dependable and a danger to everything she’s built. He’s not something she was looking for, but hearts can’t be controlled and maybe, just maybe he might be worth letting into hers.

But, all is not what it seems. Because Madeleine is hiding a lifetime of secrets. Deep secrets.

And they never stay buried for ever.

Her darkest secret returns, like the proverbial bad penny. He is her first love, shadowy, dangerous, the baddest of bad boys. No matter how far she runs, or how well she hides, she can never escape him.

Or her past.

Here he is, on her doorstep, with a proposition she is powerless to resist but which could devastate the future she hoped to have.

Can Madeleine satisfy the old love while keeping the new?

You can’t always get what you want but, desperate to preserve the life she has worked so hard for, Madeleine is willing to risk everything to prove that she can.

Synopsis

"In his debut novel, Ray Green writes with authority and style ... a tense, complex novel set amidst corporate double-dealing and intrigue, where loyalties are tested to the limit and friendship might not always be enough." Daniel Goldsmith Associates, Literary Consultants

For five ordinary guys and one rather extraordinary woman, the only escape from the corporate rat-race is to buy the company they're working for: take it all to a new level, save hundreds of jobs and make some serious money. But it quickly becomes clear that nothing is as easy as it seems. The bid is quickly undercut as twisted corporate politics and personal vendettas take over. When the buyout becomes all or nothing for the management buyout team, it all spins out of control: marriages fall apart, dark secrets are discovered, life savings are spent on the stock market, illegal insider dealing becomes a matter of fact and blackmail, theft, betrayal and manipulation are the new rules of the game. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity turns into a lurid nightmare. Buyout is a gripping and compulsive page-turner about the power of money to unveil the deepest in human nature. It's also a story about chasing one extraordinary dream. At an extraordinary price.

Synopsis

"I thought I’d knocked him out, but in a flash he’d turned on to all fours and was crawling swiftly, spider-like, back towards us. He still held the knife, so I set fire to the handle. The wood flamed and he hissed in pain but didn’t let go. It was all turning rather awkward.”


With the swinging sixties staggering, shamefaced and flustered, into the slightly staider seventies, life for Stella, isn’t going as smoothly as she’d like. As an ordinary person, who happens to have some extraordinary abilities, it's frustrating to find that something as simple as holding down a job, throws up unexpected hurdles.

She'd be a darn sight better off if she could ditch the conviction she knows best which, together with a chronic inability to keep her mouth shut and her nose out of other people's business, has led her more than once off the straight and narrow into the dodgy and dangerous. Plans for a safer future, include setting herself up in business, squashing her over-active conscience and steering clear of risky and unpleasant. Unfortunately, the best laid plans can lead to the darkest places.

Recent review: 'Beautifully written, this book will grab readers on a visceral level. Stella is both heroine, victim and villain, and one of the most compelling characters I have encountered in some time. For the Love of Books.'

Book cover image for So What Do I Do?: A Crime Thriller from the High School (So What! Series Book 3)
View full details

Synopsis

This is a thriller of the “How&Why’d they do it?” category and the book stands alone with its intriguing trail of catch-up between the police and the criminals. It's in the "Columbo style" of a mystery where you see the crime committed then watch all of the recriminations unfold around it while detective Shantra pieces clues together and tracks down the felons.

A crime that goes badly wrong in its execution, and goes on to tragically affect the local school community, produces a trail of chaos. It’s a winding trail that the reader must try to follow and which two ex-pupils from the school, one a detective and the other his violent quarry, take around Britain only to end at its shocking conclusion.

In So What Do I Do?, the third novel in the So What! series, we see the return of a few of readers' favourite characters from the previous books. Constable Nigel Shantra returns as a detective, determined to bring to justice Kyle Crabbe, the psychotic adversary of his from the first So What! novel. And just what does a class of cheeky chimps, and a large black spider monkey, have to do with the traumatic events surrounding Hodgson's Hide - the legacy of retired Technology teacher Gil Hodgson?

Molly is back also, now as an experienced teacher and a new mum. She's trying to come to terms with the major changes planned for Birch Green High School, while she and Oliver have dramatic plans of their own that could seriously affect both their careers. Still anxious to save the natural environment and its wildlife, Molly is also troubled by the plight of the neglected children of the world and climate change. Is she ever going to settle down to a blissful life of domesticity with her family when so many problems insist on grabbing her attention?

When a conspiracy to defraud the local populace, devised by two apparently respectable but unscrupulous pillars of the community, goes disastrously wrong it results in an intriguing case for detective constable Shantra to solve. The traumatic events that ensue will prove to affect the haplessly incompetent pair of criminal perpetrators, hired by the swindling conspirators, as well as the teachers and pupils of Birch Green High School.

Recently promoted Molly discovers that the pressures of helping newly qualified teachers, like James Gibborn, to cope with unruly classes bear no comparison to the eventual strain that she and her colleagues experience when an ex-pupil of the school decides it’s time for payback. This bullying past enemy of Nigel Shantra and his brother, Adam, will prove to be far more ruthless and cruel than anyone could have imagined in order to achieve his criminal ambitions. But he is just as likely to turn his attention towards anyone who upsets his plans, with terrifying consequences for those who won’t comply with his wishes.

Synopsis

Why, Pavlos wonders, must he be hypnotised by his dad ? Why the nausea, that pit of obedience ... the next "Greek lesson" ? What 'family' could it be, when his father digs for relatives he knows were all incinerated during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974?

Set in Paphos on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.

Aristo's obsessive need to trace and belong to his family - even though he was told they were all burnt and left unidentifiable during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus - has estranged his English wife, and is gradually distancing his only child while, in turn, Pavlos has a consuming need to feel he belongs; that he has a Dad who will make time - for him.

As the practices at Papas' late-night museum 'staff meetings' unfold themselves to Pavlos, the boy is led deeper into a sinister confrontation with what Papas calls his 'family', but which brings Pavlos, through the ancient face-masks and relics, to the unquiet souls of Greeks believed to have been thousands of years dead.

Both a father's and a son's need to belong, so long mutually exclusive, so long tested, are at the core of this novel. Father and son... or strangers forever ?

Synopsis

Over 2,100 5-Star Reviews! Called "a terrifically entertaining thriller!" by Publishers Weekly, Book-1 of the Brainrush series was named The Wall Street Journal #1 Bestselling Action/Adventure in their Guide to Self-Published Big Sellers, while Book-2 held a death grip on the #1 or #2 slots of the Amazon Top-Rated (best reviewed) Mystery/Thrillers list for 10 straight months. This set the stage for the blockbuster release of the final book in the trilogy, which was heralded by Suspense Magazine as "part science fiction, part thriller, part suspense, part love story, and part mystery. It's got it all and that's what makes this novel one of the best."

Before he slid into the MRI machine, Jake Bronson was just an ordinary guy with terminal cancer. But when an earthquake hits during the procedure, Jake staggers from the wreckage a profoundly changed man, now endowed with uncanny mental abilities.

An ocean away, Luciano Battista wants a piece of Jake's talent. Posing as a pioneering scientist, the terrorist leader has been conducting cerebral-implant experiments in a sinister quest to create a breed of super jihadist agents...and Jake's altered brain may be the key to his success. But Jake refuses to play the pawn in an unholy war--and when an innocent woman and autistic child are taken hostage to force his cooperation, he embarks on a jihad of his own. Jake and his band of loyal friends are thrust into a deadly chase that leads from the canals of Venice through Monte Carlo and finally to an ancient cavern in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan--where Jake discovers that his newfound talents carry a hidden price that threatens the entire human race.

The wild ride continues through books two and three of the trilogy, with locations that include the beaches of California, a raging underground river in Mexico, the rain forests of Venezuela, the Mediterranean coast, the Swiss Alps, and finally to a secret southeast Asia island, where Jake must lever every scrap of his failing brain to prevent an apocalyptic disaster.

An "international thriller with soul." Ideal reading for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

Synopsis

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs wild in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such heinous acts? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? The action takes place in Jersey, Cornwall, Manchester, London and other places not of this world. Set in 2015, Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

If I tell you that I was disinherited by my crazy father, you might understand why I feel a degree of sympathy for Edward. I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on the subject of Inheritance. They’d heard that my book, Random Bullets, deals with the subject of disinheritance and its aftermath.

"Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn't put it down," "crime with a twist," "An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder," "Kinetic... really zips along at a pace, I was really drawn in" are just a few of the reader reviews that Random Bullets has received.

Random Bullets is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions.

Will the New Messiah or the Anti-Christ be born?

In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO—a paranormal detective society—is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.

The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn’t undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan’s work?

View full details

Synopsis

Visiting his apartment to bring her teacher a long overdue essay, Kreasey noticed :

"Amy stood on her very highest heels, the ones that gave her an extra three-and-a-half inches over a world that had always seemed to look down on her beyond the narrow backs streets from which she'd been born. On her first visit, she had seemed almost undernourished, shivering in a short skirt with a slit up the side. He'd wanted to tell her that she'd made him happy - just by appearing on his doorstep with her essay and those eyes... eyes which spoke of deprivation and yet held, for him, openness and simplicity more beautiful than he'd seen in any student before.

Amy, alone among his students, had tried to help him. She was searching his eyes, confused. He recalled those moments when, beside him in bed, her face had shared that open comic side of her lovemaking with him. He couldn't forget how much she'd tried to be his passport to those roughnecks from classroom 12D... those who always seemed to be gathering with a hunting knife, getting closer...

'Well, are we going to see you in them?' she smiled, still holding his shorts out like a trophy. But as he watched her lips, they seemed to shape like those in a poorly dubbed film where the voice is out-of-sync with the words... reminding him to 'eat up' all his tablets and then he'd never be 'cut up' . "

Editorial Reviews :

" An atmospheric, vibrant, almost spooky page-turner and a psychological suspense, both moving and tender. "

Reay Tannahill - historian, novelist and author of The Seventh Son.

" As a former London teacher, Raymond Nickford has nailed the teacher's fear of the 'Lord of the Flies' pack mentality perfectly. And what a cliffhanger ! "

Synopsis

How far would you go to make things right? Ama, Mark, and Justin are about to find out.

All three have each witnessed a murder that went unpunished, and they’ve lived broken lives ever since. In recent months, their dreams have been haunted by someone who understands their pain: a Fury who survived the witch hunts of Old Salem. Three days before Halloween, she enters their dreams and summons them to be Revengers, just as she has done for a new trio of teens every year for centuries. If they abide by her seemingly simple set of rules, she promises supernatural protection while they avenge their losses.

One catch: exacting revenge means becoming killers themselves. And they don’t have much time to wrestle with the moral dilemma, as the Fury’s protection will end on the Day of the Dead. When they agree—setting in motion three bloody acts of vengeance—things begin to spiral out of control and they come to understand they are pawns in ancient game. As the Fury toys with them, they race against the clock, hoping to live more than just a few more days…

Book cover image for Voices: a novel of the end times
View full details

Synopsis

Terrorism rising in Europe and the Middle East...global economies in disarray...tiny Israel threatened by enemies on all sides. Is this old world finally about to die?

In Voices, this question festers just below the conscious level all over the world, especially in light of an event thirteen months earlier when millions of people simply vanished from the earth.

Most of those remaining comfort themselves by playing along with the more or less official explanation—that UFO’s came by and beamed certain people aboard for reasons unknown. But deep inside they realize that explanation is nothing but a convenient fantasy and that in reality an event of Biblical proportions has occurred.

Daniel Goldman is among those who try to ignore the Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor.

But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his comfortable ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life a variety of “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events.

This novel, the first of a series about the end of this age, shows the world is not coming to an end—only this current evil age is. It also treats the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophetic revelation.

Synopsis

Born 1980––Died 1940?

Benjamin Bauman, a contemporary Jewish Orthopedic Surgeon, is blinded by a flash of light while driving his car. When the light subsides, he gathers himself and discovers he is now driving another car in another time period. He panics and crashes the vehicle into a light pole.

After quickly diagnosing his injuries and reestablishing his unbelievable plight, Ben blacks out.When he awakens he finds himself in a Berlin hospital in Nazi Germany.

It is Christmas Day, 1937.

To the people around him Ben is Karl Schroder, a high-ranking Generalarzt and Chief Surgeon of that same hospital. Ben knows nothing of Karl’s past but, among many other surprises, he now speaks fluent German and discovers that Karl had been very close to an empathetic nurse, Elsa Hirsh, who is tending to his wounds.

Still in panic mode, Ben finds a mirror and discovers that his journey has not physically altered his appearance. Yes, he is a Jew in Nazi Germany, but nobody seems to realize this but Ben. His “memory loss” and sudden knowledge of a new language is “scientifically” attributed to the blow in the head he received during the accident.

From the German perspective Ben’s new language is American English, the language he retained during his trip into the past—a language Karl did not speak.

This miraculous infusion of a new language after a traffic accident intrigues members of Hitler's inner circle and brings the reluctant Ben face to face with the likes of Hermann Goering, Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler and, with a stroke of luck, the famed American broadcaster and author, William L. Shirer.

Ben’s obvious goal is to try return to the present, but as time goes by he feels he was propelled into the past for a yet to be determined mission. If so, what will his mission be? Is he there to kill Hitler––warn England and America of a looming world war––warn the Jews of the impending holocaust––or is it something more benign, like simply trying to stay alive?

"Mediterranean Noir with a comic twist."

Roy Groves has led a colourful career in business, during which he battled with corporate politics, deception, and even vicious criminals. But now Roy has retired and he is looking forward to a quieter life. He and his wife, Donna, have bought an apartment in an exclusive development on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

He soon learns, however, that there are financial problems: the community is, in effect, bankrupt. Roy is persuaded to take on the role of president of the community, confident that, with his extensive business experience, he should easily be able to sort things out. It soon becomes clear, however, that nothing is as simple as it seems.

As he tries to come up with a rescue plan, Roy discovers that a poorly-constructed retaining wall has begun to collapse, threatening the development with a landslide. And this is just the start …

As the problems mount up, one after the other, Roy becomes entangled with an astonishingly diverse cast of characters: the devious building developer; the vengeful former President; the Russian prostitute, and her mafia minders; the deranged Middle-Eastern doctor; the devastatingly glamorous French girl who moves in next door; and many more ...

Horizontal Living is an illuminating insight into the shenanigans which pervade an ex-pat community abroad: sometimes hilarious, sometimes hard to believe, but sometimes darkly disturbing.

There is even a beautiful Pinkerton detective who plays a major role in Teddy’s exploits. But nearly all the adult characters act solely in their own self-interest and few have Teddy’s welfare at heart. Left without adult guidance, Teddy takes actions to save his father which have consequences that he cannot fully comprehend; and it is the consequences of these actions that drive the novel to its conclusion.Please enter manually

View full details

Synopsis

Her demonic Angel and other short stories, published in 2016, is a collection of all of my short stories written thus far.

Synopsis

Murder on the Sky Ride, Fiction/Mystery

This novel is full of action and good detective work. It also gives a picture of the diverse ethnic and cultural makeup of Texas. It gives a private view of two Texas families, one whose members range from dope smuggler to successful attorney-politician, and the other ranging from a hot-head Chicano activist to a Texas Ranger.

Some of the characters: Gar Garcia, Texas Ranger under special orders of the governor; Steve Pearce, 21, ex-convict, trying to stay out of trouble but not succeeding; Johnny Diaz, almost, but not quite, bad to the bone; Burke Masters, big man with big money; and Hawknose, career criminal.

The story is set in San Marcos, Texas, at an amusement park located where the San Marcos River, as a giant spring, wells up out of the ground cool and clear. San Marcos is a real city but events and characters portrayed there are fictional. Real people are mentioned, such as Lyndon B. Johnson and Jimmy Carter, but are not characters.

Historical notes about the Texas Rangers are accurate. The mammalian diving reflex described in the novel is accurate, as well as the homicide exclusion in insurance policies, and oil field technicalities, but events surrounding them are fictional.

The story takes place in 1978 when detectives had to work harder than now. They had two-way radios, telephone beepers, but no cell phones or personal computers. Most police departments had no computers at all. Police reports were laboriously typed out by hand over several carbon copies, the last of which were barely legible. Police work was real work. Go along with Texas Ranger Gar Garcia as he works through clues, diversions, and deception.

View full details

Synopsis

It is the mid-twenty first century. The world is recovering from what scholars will refer to as the “Jihad War.”

Nations of the world united to bring a permanent end to radical terrorism. The unification of the nations has also given birth to the popular concept of a governing “World Union,” in which the United States intends to be a major player. The timing could not be any better. A presidential election year is on the horizon and a faceless rouge element is committed to having one of their own in the White House.

There were extreme losses of life and property in the concentrated battle theater of the Middle East.

The leading nations of the world emerged victorious over the oppressive extremists that threatened the civil and moral fabric of modern society. The high price of victory was unavoidable.

Nuclear weapons were used in order to bring the destructive war to an abrupt end.

The United States found itself as the sole military and financial leader of the world’s war against the radical terrorists. The war’s length lasted far beyond what had been predicted, diminishing many of the United States resources specifically, its wealth. Bringing the proud nation to the brink of bankruptcy.

Radiation from the nuclear weapons contaminated 85% of the water supply in the Middle East and large amounts were now being detected in the Atlantic Ocean.

A private and well-funded individual has been anticipating a catastrophe such as this, and has spun a web so delicate, its victims don’t realize they are trapped until it’s too late. She has assembled the best minds in order to develop a device that would instantly purify polluted and contaminated water.

However, this device is not being developed for humanitarian reasons. It is being developed for wealth and power. Not for an individual, but for a nation…the United States of America.

Neptune’s Chalice by M.J. Feinauer is a 5 Star – Must read book which has received rave reviews from Amazon readers and reviewers.

Synopsis

A history buff and an FBI contractor are searching for a mysterious scroll that a few unreliable historians documented across the centuries. It is rumored the scroll has the power to remove the curse hanging over the head of a young child.


The incantation seared into the gold or calfskin scroll (no two historians can agree on the medium) is a powerful tenet, thought to be capable of removing all curses, ancient and modern. Stella clings to her belief that she’ll be able to find the lost scroll. After all, if a certain amulet can transform an otherwise normal eight year old into the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, it’s only a matter of time before another unscrupulous historian appears on the scene, eager to make a profit from the child’s misfortune. The last time young Gabriel Kraft was used as a tool of destruction, Carter was still able to remove the foul artifact from the boy’s neck. Next time may not be so lucky. The scroll may be lost in history, but Stella knows it exists and that is good enough for her to set out on yet another dangerous quest.
Carter thinks she’s being insanely optimistic, but follows in her footsteps because more than one life depends on his protection. He’s not entirely sure who or what the little boy Stella adopted is, but as a father who lost his teenage daughter to tragedy, he sees a child holding on to his mother’s hand.

Synopsis

The last words of a dying teenage car thief set off a race across Europe to find an SUV that may be harboring a terrible secret. If the device that could be hiding in the truck, fell into the hands of those who murdered its inventors, the world would usher in a new unprecedented era of terrorism. Carter knows that it’s no coincidence that his old FBI boss, Agent Saunders reaches out to him once again—two days before Carter and Stella are to leave on vacation—for Europe. The only reason why he reluctantly agrees to help is because he knows only too well what would happen if the device was weaponized. The car theft ring spans two continents and the police on both ends have been watching it for some time. Still, no one, least of all Carter would have thought that beside the dangerous invention that may be hiding in the SUV, other far more deadlier goods are being smuggled out of California’s laboratories.

Within seventy-two hours of landing in Nice, Carter and Stella are in the proverbial eye of the storm. What swirls around them in a deadly funnel is a chilling conspiracy that reaches the highest spheres of money and political power in Europe. And just as Carter is asking himself whether the vacation could get any more dangerous, something even more sinister than political machinations rises in their path. A mythological entity that even Stella thought was a pure myth, forces them to take a challenge neither is prepared for.

View full details

Synopsis

When Victoria Seymour was elected Prime Minister, she had one simple agenda: end obesity to prepare the UK workforce for careers outside the European protectorate.
In the wake of Brexit, Victoria moves into No. 10 Downing Street as the new leader of the United Kingdom. Convinced she is at the pinnacle of her career, Victoria moves towards her noble goal with confidence, hell-bent on ending obesity in Britain.

But the new Prime Minister is surrounded by selfish advisors with their own hidden agendas. Seizing opportunities built on the new Prime Minister’s polarizing policies, they spread rumors and fear through the public in a stealth smear campaign that sees their leader’s popularity plummet.

Before long, voters lose confidence in Victoria’s unorthodox policies and stubborn rhetoric. Body positivity advocates and their allies start protests that lead to civil unrest and uprisings...and then morbidly obese citizens start to disappear.

Unable to explain the disappearances to her questioning public, Victoria follows the advice of her spin-doctors, tightening policies by placing new restrictions on the morbidly obese. What started as a way of coming to power has now forced Victoria’s political career to take turns she never anticipated.

Heroes Banging Fat is a tale of awkward politics, business ethics, psychology, greed, human stupidity and the trauma of brutal pasts, that explores why people would rather believe comfortable lies over hard factual arguments. Laced heavily with irony, this political satire is sure to have you questioning the world we live in today.

Synopsis

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you woke up in someone else’s body? What if you also got to be fifteen years younger and fifty pounds lighter, with all your money troubles behind you? But what if you had to choose between your handsome lover and your rich husband, when both turned out to be strangers with secrets of their own? “Beatrix Reincarnated” is the ultimate “what if” story. On the New Year’s Eve of 2011, Beatrix Lin, a twenty-eight-year-old overweight and lovesick junior financial analyst from New York finds out her boyfriend has been cheating on her and dies in a freak accident shortly after midnight. With a little mix-up in the Underworld, she is reincarnated into the body of a beautiful thirteen-year old Lin Bee-Er, daughter of the powerful Right Prime Minster “Lord Toad” in a hypothetical Sheng Dynasty of ancient China. Bee-Er / Bea is thrust into a blind, arranged marriage with a pimple-faced teen she nicknames “Rudolph”, son of the equally powerful “Prince Terminator”. She soon realizes her in-laws’ feudal polygamous household contains all elements of a modern dysfunctional family, complete with a stern, violent military dad, spendaholic desperate housewives, an alcoholic gambling addict, and a confused and angry Emo-boy. She must maneuver between jealousy and backstabs of her new husband’s concubines—neurotic poet “Tooth Fairy” and the seductive but lethal “Carmen”. With her sharp business sense and her gift in marketing, she has to rescue the family’s failing finance while scheming against in-laws who behave like evil characters out of the movie “Horrible Bosses”. She must also face “Loverboi”—the old Bee-Er’s lover, a mysterious boy with formidable martial art skills and a shady past. It is a tale of passion and revenge, set in a swashbuckling olden China and told in the style of Bridget Jones Diary. It is also a step-by-step playbook on how a modern, white-collared woman takes on an ancient, feudal familial hierarchy by applying her skills on corporate politics. In the end, this is a story about how a self-confessed loser of the “game of hearts” finds true love again, and again.

Synopsis

Suzy is a survivor - but her husbands aren't. In "Undetected," Suzy Perry, a lovely and accomplished older woman, marries into a new family in Westchester County, NY. Little does her new family suspect that she's a black widow who has dispatched two husbands in other parts of the country.
A narcissist who lacks empathy, Suzy manages to charm most people she meets and disguise her demons - until she's ready to strike. As the story unfolds, her new husband's son, a journalist, tries to find out something about her past, which she's loath to talk about. As his questions mount, he hires a private detective to delve into her past - and what emerges, which often seems circumstantial, is troubling.
When the evidence reaches what seems to be a tipping point, the new husband confronts Suzy with some of it, and she senses the jig may be up. Then Suzy is on the run, fleeing back into a comforting friendship from her past that she sees as a port of refuge. Her flight takes her across the country, and into a new place with a new name. Will she really get away with it all?

Book cover image for The Trouble With Trouble
View full details

Synopsis

THE TROUBLE WITH TROUBLE is a powerful erotic thriller set in a Sheffield police station. The story follows on from The Trouble With Liam but can be read as a standalone. When a forensic scientist invents a potent sexual arousal cream called Trouble, it causes huge problems for DCI Jeremy Cosgrove, his beautiful, sex-addicted liaison officer, Kate Pendleton, and two other women who also work at the station. It’s a tale of blackmail, lust, secrets, hidden identities, and murder. The Trouble With Trouble is like Line of Duty but with explicit sex.

"Outrageous."

Be warned. As with book 1 in the Trouble series, The Trouble with Trouble isn’t a book for the faint-hearted or easily shocked. I’ve written two more books in the Trouble series which can also be read as standalones. I hope to publish books 3 and 4, Trouble In Cornwall and Troubled in late 2020.

SEA OF GOLD
MONEY, MURDER AND LOVE ON THE HIGH SEAS. IN THE WORLD OF SHIPPING THE RULES ARE BLURRED AND THE OCEANS LAWLESS

A gripping page-turner, Sea of Gold draws the reader into a world of extremes, the casual affluence of the super-rich contrasting with the dignified poverty of the desperate. Meanwhile, McKinnon’s two loves – the enigmatic Claire and his devoted long-term lover, Eleni, vie for his attention.

But their claim on a mysterious cargo lost during the War is not as simple as they say, and the cold case abruptly heats up when Angus’s old friend and mentor is violently murdered back in Greece.
Haunted, obstructed and plagued by self-doubt, Angus soon finds himself trapped in a web of international intrigue that draws him to the typhoon-lashed South China Sea and the shocking discovery of a plan to attack Hong Kong and hold Asia Pacific – and the world beyond – to ransom. But the trail doesn’t end there …
Amidst relentless danger, Angus’s resolve is once more tested down to the wire.

And as questions and misgivings mount, what motivates the beautiful Mariana da Cunha to help Angus in the troubled land of her birth?
From the Atlantic Ocean to the jungles of West Africa and a final face-off in the vast emptiness of the Sahara, McKinnon must finally join with a daunting array of military resources, and marshal his own wits to bring down a psychopathic war criminal and those playing him as their proxy.

What happens when Artificial Intelligence becomes sentient?

In the year 2061, Artificial Intelligence has solved most of humanity’s problems from global warming to viral diseases, while synthetics have become impeccable lovers for humans.

DEATH COMES IN MANY FORMS. NONE ARE GOOD.

But rocking the proverbial boat doesn't come without a price! Pearce quickly finds himself on the Public Enemy Number One list on both sides of the border.

When the FBI illegally renders his beautiful ally from Canada to a supermax prison beneath its headquarters in Washington, DC, Pearce has less than 24 hours to free her before she cracks under the Bureau's notorious "enhanced interrogation" techniques.

The Ryder Quartet comprises four crime thrillers. Each of them is also separately available as an independent book. In this collection they form an overall cohesive narrative.
