New York Times Bestselling Author

Deep in London’s dangerous slums, Victorians transact their most secret and shameful business. For a price, a man can procure whatever he wants. But for one such man, the price he pays is his life. In sunless Water Lane, respected solicitor Leighton Duff lies dead, kicked and beaten to death. Beside him is the barely living body of his son, Rhys.

The police cannot fathom these brutal assaults until shrewd investigator William Monk, aided by nurse-turned-sleuth Hester Latterly, uncovers a connection between them and a series of rapes and beatings of local prostitutes. But then the case takes an even more shocking turn.

“This book is excellent for the kind of readers who are fascinated by history and, Arab and Islam culture.” -Al-Azri

In 1844, Salamah bint Saïd was born into royalty of the sultanate of Zanzibar and Omar.

She was the youngest out of Sayyid Said bin Sultan Al-Busaid’s thirty children and daughter of a Circassian concubine, and through her early years spent in a variety of great palaces she experienced vast wealth.

This is the story of Saïd’s life, written after she had left Zanzibar and eloped with Rudolph Heinrich Ruete to Germany to begin life under her new name, Emily Ruete.

From an early age she was witness to the intrigue and politics of the harem, even involving herself at the tender age of fifteen to the factional infighting and an attempted coup by her brother Barghash against another brother.

But this is more than merely an interesting story of one Arabian princess’s life in East Africa, as Saïd provides a fascinating insight into the social and cultural history of Zanzibar.

She writes on numerous topics from schooling to fashion, medical treatment to slavery, thus giving a vivid impression of when she lived.

After she married Rudolph Ruete and converted to Christianity, they spent the rest of their lives in Hamburg. She wrote Memoirs of an Arabian Princess from Zanzibar in German in 1886. It was the first known autobiography of an Arabian woman. She died in 1924 in Germany at the age of 79. This edition was translated by Lionel Strachey and published in 1907. Strachey died in 1927.

“Excellent read! Well written with plot twists that leave you wanting more!” -Kid at Heart

In this paranormal trilogy, witness the collision of good and evil between the beings that live just on the other side of the threshold inside the haunted Bradford mansion…

EDGE OF SHADOWS (Shadows #1)

Orphaned at eight years old, Ellie developed an ability to help her navigate the cold, indifferent world where she found herself. Armed with the knowledge of a person’s true intentions, she learned it was safer to be alone. Then Jake Coulter slipped through her defenses by offering the promise of a normal, happy life. After narrowly escaping a dark truth that Jake hid from her, Ellie retreated from the world in an act of self-preservation. Drawn out of her protective bubble when a friend insists on playing matchmaker, Ellie meets a handsome doctor. With some persistent coaxing, Ellie warms to the idea that she may have found a reason to let her guard down. She rediscovers her hope for an ordinary, yet extraordinary life.

Accepting a seemingly innocent favor, Ellie finds herself the caretaker of the Bradford mansion, an impressive home with its own mysterious past. Curious about a life that she could never have, she delves into the mansion’s history. Soon Ellie realizes that danger lurks in its empty rooms. When Jake resurfaces with premonitions of Ellie’s death, Ellie’s new life is turned upside down as a simple truth is revealed. Ellie’s life can never be normal because something old and evil has been searching for her for a long time. And now it has found her.

SHADOWS DEEP (Shadows #2)

Ellie Coulter made a deal with the devil to save herself and her new love, and now it’s time to pay the price. It doesn’t take long for Ellie to realize that the shadows that have swirled around her life since her parents’ death were far from a coincidence. As more of her true destiny is revealed, it comes with the knowledge that she is a lynchpin in a much larger and more dangerous game. Mikel, Hell’s emissary to her new “home” in the Afterlife has her trapped and he has no intention of ever letting her go.

As Ellie races to find a way to escape, she is sucked further into the darkness and must come face to face with ugly truths about who she really is. She has to decide who she can trust and that includes the man she loves. As facts give way to lies, Ellie begins to question everything. But one thing remains clear: Ellie must find a way to defeat her captor before she loses everything, including her soul.

VEILED SHADOWS (Shadows #3)

In the stunning conclusion of the Shadows trilogy, Ellie and David risk everything to uncover the truth about their pasts… Ellie Coulter is sick of being the victim of the shadows surrounding her new life. She’s ready to find out the secret that her parents kept from her and what that means for her future, even if it means partnering with the one man that she thought she’d never see again.

David Mitchell is grappling with the sobering truth that his life has been nothing but a sham since the day he was born. Although he loves Ellie, he knows that being near him puts her life in danger. The day his fate was changed caused horrible consequences that he must find a way to fix. Fates intertwine, and all is revealed as Ellie and David find out if they were truly meant to be together or if the darkness will swallow them whole.

A DISCOVERY HIDDEN IN DARKNESS…

A TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT…

What if… scientific evidence of a coming extinction event was known and kept secret?

What if… your survival was dependent on being chosen?

What if… the only choice you had was to give up that chance?

For decades, the government tried to keep the sun’s betrayal a secret. We went on with our lives as usual, just like they wanted. Daylight illuminated our world, never once shining light on the darkness of our world’s fate. Until now. It all started with one man’s knowledge–a whistleblower whose decision to release NASA’s classified disclosure and a secret military operation sparked global outrage and conspiracy. But years later, the evidence would finally emerge, igniting the night sky in auroras pole to pole. The President’s announcement marked the beginning of the biggest war known in the history of mankind. That was the year I ran away. After the fall, our country was divided into fifteen territories. Now, only 30% of the population remained inside the walls. My hometown was one of hundreds of regulated towns still remaining, bordered and protected from the outside. Inside, we’d all serve toward the future of humanity, or end up a statistic.

Each of the fifteen colonies would house 20,000 survivalists underground after evacuation day–a massive subterranean compound capable of keeping the human race alive long after the end. But only the selected would survive–an election that was determined by our leaders based on age, health, and labor participation. Or so we were told. Crippled with guilt, I returned home–a place now plagued with violence, oppression, and corruption. I came back to find a purpose to fight again, and ultimately, to forgive myself before everything ended, but the mystery surrounding my father’s death still haunted me. And after finding his compass along a forbidden mountain trail outside the fence, I was determined to find out what happened to him.

Enslaved by unlikely odds and a will to survive, we waited for the next round of chaos to unfold as sick, homeless, and unlawful citizens were euthanized, as riots continued, as more houses were marked with a familiar X–a symbol of collapse. But now, a more sinister development was upon us, and this time, there was no way to run from it.

My name is Aubrey. I was 20 years old when I found out the world was ending, the night I almost died. I survived the accident, and the collapse. For three years, I gave up on life, love, and the one and only chance I had to survive this. And now, at age 23, I’ve unearthed a secret that could end my entire bloodline well before the evacuation. Now, I have no choice but to do the one thing I should have done from the very beginning–escape into the lawless land beyond regulation–a place I was destined to belong.

Some secrets carry the weight of the world.

Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she’s made a powerful ally–a fellow prisoner with whom she’s formed a strong bond. Sazo’s an artificial intelligence. He’s saved her from captivity and torture, but he’s also put her in the middle of a conflict, leaving Rose with her loyalties divided.

Captain Dav Jallan doesn’t know why he and his crew have stumbled across an almost legendary Class 5 battleship, but he’s not going to complain. The only problem is, all its crew are dead, all except for one strange, new alien being.

She calls herself Rose. She seems small and harmless, but less and less about her story is adding up, and Dav has a bad feeling his crew, and maybe even the four planets, are in jeopardy. The Class 5’s owners, the Tecran, look set to start a war to get it back and Dav suspects Rose isn’t the only alien being who survived what happened on the Class 5. And whatever else is out there is playing its own games.

In this race for the truth, he’s going to have to go against his leaders and trust the dark horse.

When Lexie Marshall places an ad for a cycling companion, she hopes to find someone friendly and fun to cross the TransAmerica Trail with. Instead, she gets Tom Geiger—a lean, sexy loner whose bad attitude threatens to spoil the adventure she’s spent years planning.

Roped into the cycling equivalent of a blind date by his sister, Tom doesn’t want to ride with a chatty, go-by-the-map kind of woman, and he certainly doesn’t want to want her. Too bad the sight of Lexie with a bike between her thighs really turns his crank.

Even Tom’s stubborn determination to keep Lexie at a distance can’t stop a kiss from leading to endless nights of hotter-than-hot sex. But when the wild ride ends, where will they go next?

“An exciting war novel blended with elements of detective fiction.” -Manhattan Book Review

Europe has fallen.

The year is 1942. Hitler’s war machine has decimated the Allies and thrown the British back across the Channel. With their prospects of freedom dwindling by the day, the people of Europe are learning the terror of living under the Third Reich.

For Gabrielle Conti, a young French girl working at her family’s winery, it all seemed so distant and surreal. Surely such events couldn’t impact her simple life in the French countryside?

That was before the body of an SS officer was found in the basement.

When her family becomes the subject of a brutal murder investigation, Gabrielle must match wits with SS Captain Hans Tiedemann, a veteran of the Russian Front who is hell-bent on singling out the killer. Gabrielle hopes if she can fool Tiedemann into thinking he is making progress, she might just buy enough time for her family to escape.

But that will be no easy task. For as the Germans gather their clues, Gabrielle starts to learn more about her family’s true involvement in the war–and saving them could spell the end of the French Resistance.

“…an objective account, impeccably accurate, eminently fair and, just as important, always readable.” –John T.

From the first landings at Casablanca straight through to the crossing of the Elbe River and VE-Day, this book tells the gripping story of all the battles of World War II that American soldiers, sailors, and airmen took part in, and of the strategy behind them.

The book’s core is its account of such famous and dramatic episodes as the landing in North Africa, Kasserine Pass, Salerno and Anzio, D-Day, the liberation of Paris, the Battle of the Bulge, the crossing of the Rhine, and the race across Germany.

It also tells the story of the conflicts between American and other Allied leaders over how to pursue the war, and of convoys, U-boat wolf-packs, the aerial war over Germany, the bombing of Dresden, and the final surrender of the Nazis.

MacDonald takes the reader back to the build-up to war, looking at the circumstances of the American decision during the early ’thirties to concentrate, if war should come, on victory in Europe first; and he describes in detail the ways in which America forged a disciplined fighting force when war broke out.

His portrayal of major military figures — George S. Patton, Jr., Mark W. Clark, J. Lawton Collins, among others — is both fair and penetrating, and he pays particular attention to other leaders whose accomplishments are not so well known.

His sources include official U.S. Army records and direct interviews with non-commissioned officers and privates and top-level participants such as Generals Eisenhower and Bradley. His account also reflects intensive work with original documents and with many newly available sources, as well as his own experiences in the war as the commander of an infantry rifle company.

The Mighty Endeavor is a thoroughly researched history of the American forces in World War Two.

In the trial to decide many futures, can Jake survive?

It’s been five years since hardworking lawyer Jake Martin started at Sperling, Beekman, Howe, Woods, and Simon.

A senior associate, he’s had his eye on the coveted position of partner for far too long…and five years in, it’s make or break time.

When client Augustus Daren finally passes away after a year on life support, Jake is pulled into a world where the truth is more complicated than it seems.

Daren’s last will and testament places the control of his bank, Hanover Square, in the hands of his fourth wife, the clever and beautiful Elizabeth Daren, but his two grown children are furious.

Gussie and Chip have no need for the money, but they do want the bank — and are willing to go to any lengths to get it.

Claude Louis deSalle, the devious president of Hanover Square, is similarly shocked by the contents of Daren’s will.

His ambitions foiled, deSalle works behind the scenes as part of a silent team determined to get rid of Elizabeth Daren.

In their eagerness to destroy their stepmother, Gussie and Chip hire Tiger Sage, an experienced trial lawyer to contest the validity of the will.

Canny, quick, and more than able to turn a jury in his favor, he shines in a courtroom in a way that Jake can only dream of.

And when Jake, a lawyer with zero experience of litigation, is unexpectedly assigned the task of trying the case, he finds himself at the mercy of powerful men and women, buffeted back and forth by currents of power.

Ultimately, he realizes that when in the presence of enemies, the only person you can truly count on is himself…

Welcome to Whistle Stop…where anything can and most likely will happen.

The notorious cowboy meets his match…

Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl–but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land–land that has been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go–even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and even if selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.

Alexis Greer had one mission–close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name. She just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, to appeal somehow to his head and heart–even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.

Cancel the wedding–the groom is dead.

When a tycoon’s son is murdered the night before his wedding, the enraged and grief-stricken father offers private detective Dan Reno (that’s Reno, as in no problemo), a life-changing bounty to find the killer. Reno, nearly broke, figures he’s finally landed in the right place at the right time. It’s a nice thought, but when a band of crooked cops get involved, Reno finds himself not only earning every penny of his paycheck, but also fighting for his life.

Who committed the murder, and why? Which cops can he trust, if any? Haunted by his murdered father and a violent, hard drinking past, Reno wants no more blood on his hands. But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA. Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive. Because the fat bounty won’t do him much good if he’s dead…

“Oh, how I wished I could’ve told her what had happened. How I wished I could’ve let go and allowed the tears to spill. But I knew that if I had cried, Mama would’ve asked me what the matter was. And if I had told her the truth, she would’ve said that I was lying. And if she thought that I was lying . . . well, you know the rest.

Still, I wonder . . . did she know?

Did anyone know?

Didn’t everyone know?”

Lucy Green Eyes is based on the true-life story of Merlene McDaniel as told from her eyes growing up in the segregated South. Although Merlene spends much of her early years dodging the stinging switches of an overly-strict grandmother, yearning for the embrace of a part-time mother, hoping for a smile from an oncoming stranger, or running from dirty old men, her inner strength allows her to ride on the wings of endless hope, and we can’t help but ride along.

A death in the wilderness. A woman mourns alone. A reporter works a single lead. Following a family tragedy that has broken his spirit, crime reporter Will Finch returns to his news desk in San Francisco eager to reboot his career and renew his lease on life.

When he’s assigned to cover the grisly death of a witness to a multi-million dollar bitcoin fraud, Finch discovers some troubling complications: A Mercedes-Benz abandoned in the wilderness. A wounded bear. A cop who rules a remote town with an iron fist. And the witness’s fiancée — a US senator’s daughter — knows there’s something mysterious about her lover’s death. But what?

If you have an appetite for organized crime series, you’ll love this new crime trilogy. Add a slice of noir novels, the juice of steamy PI mysteries, the zest of a financial thriller series. Soon you’ll be stewing in this new technothriller trilogy — and begging for more.

Inspired by true events, Bone Maker is the first thriller in this series of noir crime novels — a crime trilogy that races from coastal Oregon to San Francisco, Moscow, Honolulu and Washington DC. It intersects the worlds of international finance, cryptocurrency software algorithms, and corruption that reaches from the US Senate to Turk Street in the Tenderloin District.
