“An exhilarating read that could easily be a blockbuster on the screen.” -Kirkus Reviews

In Body of Evidence, a sexy romantic political thriller, an archaeologist and a US Attorney find themselves on an explosive, globe-spanning chase full of political intrigue and legal drama.

Body of Evidence is the second book in Grant’s Evidence Series, where archaeology, politics, and war collide. And she thought facing a firing squad was bad…

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death.

Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC.

With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun.

Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.

“….a personal, first-hand look at what it is like to grow up in the youth gang subculture…a worthwhile read.” -San Francisco Chronicle, Bill Wallace

This startling and unsentimental recollection of childhood and coming of age in the back alleys and bustling streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown reveals the sinister and pervasive influences of organized crime.

Delivering an almost-casual expose into the underworld of an urban Chinatown, “Chinese Playground: A Memoir” traces author Bill Lee’s maturation from innocent child in a troubled family to a street punk, gang member, and college graduate struggling to break free of his involvement in escalating violence.

In a dark journey spanning forty years, Lee fights an ongoing battle against relentless childhood demons and nightmares, ultimately coming to terms with his past and peace with himself.

Lee’s personal accounts of two high-profile murder incidents are engrossing. The 1977 Golden Dragon Massacre in San Francisco that left five dead and eleven wounded, was carried out by his blood-brothers who were engaged in the most violent Asian gang war in U.S. history.

A decade later, a mad gunman killed seven and injured four at ESL, a high-tech firm in Sunnyvale, California where Lee was employed. An unlikely hero emerges as he accepts his fate, employing his street instincts to save co-workers during the murderous rampage.

“The detail, the characters, the story…just so good and so believable!! I have definitely been telling everyone to read this.” -Momma2Es

In 2064, The Nine are preparing to assemble. This board of individuals is President Madame LaFonte’s solution to an ailing nation in search of medical care.

While it seemed ideal at first, the folks of the borough are quickly discovering it isn’t quite what it seems. The lucky ones are issued a red gown and another chance at life.

That’s the happy ending. However, not everyone gets a red gown. The others have to make their own second chance at life–if they’ve got the heart to do what it takes.

When the superstitions of the swamplands run just as deep as the mud, every little bit of luck helps. They named her Vitalia, a name that means life. But her name was the only advantage that she had.

In need of a heart transplant, Vita leaves Peacock Swamp behind to stand before The Nine. With her family by her side, they run into the dangers that government healthcare has created: an underground medical clinic that services the rejected citizens…for a price.

Her whole life has been a struggle. Why should her death be any different?

The Barrel Murder
by Michael Zarocostas
Rating: 4.6 Stars
Genre: Thriller and Suspense
Price: $0.00 Save $11.99
Subject to change back to full price at any time.

Based on true events, The Barrel Murder traces the NYPD’s investigation of the April 14, 1903 barrel murder, in which a man was found stabbed to death, dismembered, and placed on display in a barrel in Little Italy.

Two NYPD outcasts hunt for the killer: Detective Joe Petrosino (a stocky “Dago” nicknamed Bulldog Joe) and Inspector Max Schmittberger (a giant “Yid” nicknamed The Broom).

Commissioner Teddy Roosevelt appointed Petrosino the first Italian-American detective in the NYPD and reinstated Schmittberger after The Broom confessed to grafting and blew the whistle on his fellow cops.

By 1903, however, Roosevelt is in the White House, and Tammany Hall casts a long Irish shadow over the NYPD again.

To complicate matters, investigative reporter Lincoln Steffens seeks Petrosino’s help in finding out if there is a crooked lawman behind a gambling syndicate in the City.

As they work the barrel murder, Petrosino and Schmittberger encounter a lunatic doctor, the Secret Service, vicious Sicilian mafiosi known as the Morello Gang, and a mysterious code that may unlock the secrets of the killing and Steffens’ alleged syndicate.
