Death of an Airman
by C. St John Sprigg

Genre: Mystery
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“A most ingenious and exciting plot… vigorous style… entertaining characters… exceedingly odd goings-on.” -Dorothy S.

England. 1934.

In full view of a half dozen witnesses, the flying instructor of the Baston Aero Club goes into a tail spin, crashes, and is killed.

Merely a regrettable incident apparently, but that unique character, the Bishop of Cootamundra, who is learning to fly at the Club whilst on leave, thinks otherwise.

He doubts that the strange death was an accident.

These suspicions are the starting point of an investigation which involves an amazing chain of intrigue linked to the quiet town of Baston, culminating in one of the cleverest murders in detective fiction.

Together with Inspector Bray of Scotland Yard and Inspector Creighton, the Bishop uncovers an international crime operation involving cocaine, drug smuggling, secret marriages, French newspapers and loyalty to an elusive figure known as ‘The Chief’.

Included in the cast of this dramatic crime are Sally Sackbut, irreverent and flighty manager of the Club; two rival transatlantic flyers; Tommy Vane, who handles a double Scotch with greater agility than he handles a plane; Lady Crumbles, amazing organizer of air shows; and other extraordinary and diverting characters.

Can the Bishop identify the members of the criminal enterprise in time to prevent another death? And what will become of those innocent victims in charge of the Baston Aero Club?

Great Pacific War
by Hector C. Bywater

“This book is exceptionally well-written, down to the smallest detail to give it the look and feel of a post-war history….” -Robert L.

The Great Pacific War tells the fictional history of a war between the United States and Japan between 1931 and 1933.

First published in 1925, Hector Bywater anticipated many of the details of the conflict in the Pacific during the Second World War.

Written in a manner only possible for the most devoted experts of the subject, Bywater presents an eerily plausible account of a war between these two great naval powers.

His account focuses on the naval actions of the war, describing great battles between a technologically-advanced and well-trained, but under-resourced Japanese fleet and an American navy that continues to grow in strength.

Exciting depictions of the Japanese invasion of the Philippines, the defense of Guam, and inventive American counter-attacks involving the use of dummy ships fill Bywater’s intriguing narrative.

Bywater makes use of all the conventions of the historian, including the use of quotations from many invented sources from both the American and Japanese sides.

His account is so convincing that at times it is surprising to remember that it was a work of fiction. From the implications of the Washington Disarmament Conference to the specifications of the Denver-class cruisers, his expert understanding of naval affairs shines.

The admirals, politicians and soldiers that drive the plot are a mix of complex, interesting characters, at once displaying great heroism and exasperating recklessness.

At a time when his contemporaries were often dismissive of the abilities of the Japanese military, his work stands as a startling warning of a conflict that would begin soon after his death.

“…exciting and satisfying read…this book will seduce you.” -Erica Miles, author

Amazon Bestselling Author

As two immortal enemies fall in love, a long-foretold war between the forces of Light and Dark threatens to break.

The Nephilim have long sworn to protect the children of men from the Succubae—daughters of Lilith who wander the earth in search of men to seduce and bend to their sinister will. Yet Sarahi is sick of the shadows, sick of the dark … until the day her path crosses that of Lucien and she dares lift her face towards the light.

But their growing passion is overshadowed by an ancient prophecy that warns the forbidden union between the Naphil and Succubus will produce a great warrior—one who holds the key to victory or utter destruction.

One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series.
