DOUBLE TROUBLE, DOUBLE FUN!

Who is Holmes without his Watson, Scully without her Mulder? Half the fun of a witty, fast-paced mystery is watching two wildly different kinds of detectives duke it out verbally while puzzling out a nearly impossible solution. Especially if they happen to be attracted to each other. In these five, some are, some aren’t, but in each case, these dynamic duos complete, complement and—often—thoroughly infuriate each other. (In the friendliest possible, way of course.) Double detectives, double fun at less than half the normal price!

LOUISIANA LAMENT

They’d be Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito if this were a movie. In Louisiana Lament, they’re P.I.s Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino. Talba’s young, African-American, computer-brilliant, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and a noted poet by night; Eddie’s pushing seventy, white, hopelessly tech-challenged, and pretty much burned out. Somehow, they make it work—with Talba’s tech-and-street smarts, and Eddie’s old-school hard-earned savvy, they even complement each other.

MAKE ME DEAD

How can you go wrong with a 500-year-old vampyre movie star and her mortally attractive crush—a macho, all too human L.A. cop, on a jaunt to New Orleans in this adventure. A flaming hot combo to begin with, but spiced up with author Barbeau’s sassy writing, it’s a treat for cozy and paranormal fans alike. Because, as always in a Vampyres of Hollywood mystery, the biting wit is sharper than a nip from a passing vampyre—in a word, humor, wit, and satire are what this engaging series is really all about.

THE 13TH FELLOW

American Professor Havilah Gaie has always seen herself as “an academic version of Pam Grier’s characters: smart, quick on their feet, loyal with a keen sense of purpose.” Now she’s got a chance to suit up for action because suddenly she’s a witness in a murder—in Provence. Havilah’s at the center of the mystery, and so is Thierry Gasquet, a dashing French agent who doesn’t care much for amateur detectives. Who resists a dashing French agent? Hint: It’s a lot of fun watching Havilah try.

SPIT IN THE OCEAN

Ex-Chicago-cop Jake Samson and his ever-sharp Watson, Rosie Vicente, hired by a bank to find out who made an unauthorized withdrawal, blow into a coastal California town town as a savage storm is approaching. It was quite a bank job–the vault emptied out, not a shot fired. In fact, it resembled a burglary more than a bank job, but when you rob a sperm bank, that’s sometimes all it takes. Need we say Jake and Rosie have a ball!

THE DELPHI AGENDA

Papyrologist Lisa Emmer and her cohort, a mysterious banker named Steve, unravel of secrets of ancient history mixed in with a chilling conspiracy that brings to mind the best of Dan Brown. What;s going on: The Inquisition is back! And this time they have technology. An action-packed and very exotic international thriller!

Lane soon discovers that Johnny is part of an experiment veiled in extraordinary secrecy. But he has no idea who’s behind it, how astronomical the stakes are, or how many lives might be destroyed to make it a reality.

Now Johnny’s gone missing. To find him, Lane follows a twisting trail into a billionaire’s hilltop urban fortress, a politician’s inner circle, a prison set in an aircraft graveyard, and a highly guarded community where people appear to be half their biological age. Hunted by dueling enemies, Lane meets a beautiful and enigmatic woman at the center of a vast web of political and criminal intrigue. And behind it all is a sinister, desperate race to claim the biggest scientific prize of all: eternal life.

There’s a hideous monster on the loose, crushing heads and taking names.

But Detective Calvin Kinsey is on the case!

Two years ago, Cal Kinsey was an up-and-coming cop in the Aurora Police Department. But during a fateful nighttime stakeout in search of a prolific killer, Cal witnessed the darkest corner of his dreams come to life. A rogue vampire slaughtered his partner—to put it nicely—and introduced Cal to the supernatural world he never knew existed in the shadows.

Now, Cal is a newly minted detective at the often mocked Department of Supernatural Investigations. By day, the agents of DSI are called “Kooks” by local law enforcement. By night, they’re known as “Crows,” reviled by the supernatural underworld.

Mere weeks out of the academy, Cal catches his first real case, a vicious murder at a local college. An unknown sorcerer has summoned a powerful creature from the Eververse, a realm of magic and mayhem that borders Earth, and set it on a dangerous warpath through the city.

Between butting heads with his grumpy team captain, stirring up ill will with the local wizards and witches, and repeatedly getting the crap beaten out of himself, Cal must find a way to stop the Eververse monster and send it back to the hell it came from…

…preferably before Aurora, Michigan runs out of coffins for the dead.

“This book was awesome!” -Loretta F.

She was his beginning, his life, and his end. And she did not know it yet.

Daniel is the orphaned son of a Powhatan warrior, born in seventeenth century Jamestown. When he is injured in the Battle of Bloody Run and left for dead, he wakes in the care of a young woman named Emmy. As she nurses him back to health, he soon realizes that she is from another time – and that she is the Time Walker his enemies have been searching for.

Emmy is a reluctant Time Walker, sent to 1656 Virginia on her mother’s dying command. She prepares for her journey to the past as much as any modern woman could, but soon she realizes that the ancient blood running through her veins makes her a target for danger no matter what time she is in. Daniel is a complication she did not expect – a man who is tangled in her heart and her history in a way that can never be undone.

In a time when settlers flooded the New World under the rule of English Kings and the First People fought to keep their way of life, an alliance between Daniel and Emmy is not easily achieved. Yet as their lives are irrevocably entwined by fate and circumstance, they realize they must trust each other if they hope to survive what the history books have already written.

After five years on the run, Sunday has finally settled into a seemingly normal life in Columbia, South Carolina. What her two best friends don’t know is that Sunday has a secret past. She is the Incarnate, a conduit of mystical energy transcendent of the mundane and the divine. For most of her life, she served under Bernadette, the most powerful witch in the Northwest. Her power is terrifying, and what she remembers of her past—and what she doesn’t—haunts her. In the year that she’s been attempting to be anything but the Incarnate, Sunday has fought her abilities tooth and nail, but it’s been worth it. When Sunday joins her friends’ coven for an innocent gathering, Sunday discovers a darkness hidden beneath the blanket of the coven’s magic and she is determined to find out who is behind it and what she has planned.

For the last four years, Cyrus has been the point man on the contract to recapture the Incarnate and deliver her to the Pastophori of Iset. A gifted tracker and a fearless werewolf, he harbors a wild, inexplicable passion for the Incarnate that has driven him to hunt her. He was one of the original captors that brought her to Bernadette when his obsession with her began. Having found her, Cyrus and his pack find themselves torn between two objectives: take her by force and deliver her to yet another group of fanatics, or help her uncover the traitor among her coven.
