“The Georgie Shaw mysteries are delightful and intriguing and Anna Celeste Burke has hit another home run with Murder at Sea of Passenger X; in fact, my favorite so far.” -Jeanie J.

USA Today, #1 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Welcome aboard! Georgie Shaw and her handsome new husband, Detective Jack Wheeler, are living it up on Marvelous Marley World’s luxurious cruise ship when trouble strikes. “The screaming came in bursts followed by shouts of man overboard, just like in a movie.” Who is passenger X? Did he fall or was he pushed? Does it have anything to do with the rash of jewelry thefts or the murdered man found near the spot where Passenger X went overboard?

With a killer on the loose, Georgie and Jack are soon enlisted to help solve the case. It’s a non-stop scramble to unravel the mystery before Georgie’s eccentric boss, “Mad” Max Marley, arrives in Tahiti demanding answers. That won’t be easy since Passenger X isn’t the only one with a dubious identity as the list of suspects grows.

That list includes Georgie’s old friend Chef Gerard and his striking blond, blue-eyed Sous Chef, Paolo. Masters of five-star cuisine and wizards with chocolate, are they cooking up more than sumptuous feasts and banquets of desserts? How about the guy in the Perroquet suit or “Monster Marston,” a standout in the fitness center?

It’s all hands on deck to figure out whodunit. Even Georgie’s cats get involved in the action on board this cruise that comes with a boatload of mystery!

Tuttle does a lovely job of putting us back in the foggy streets of Victorian London in this lively, entertaining blend of murder mystery and supernatural adventure. Arthur Conan Doyle would have approved.” -George R. R. Martin

Multi-Award Winning Author

Has there ever been a more unlikely pair of consulting detectives than Jesperson and Lane? They certainly make a striking duo: Mr. Jasper Jesperson, with his shock of red hair and seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of all subjects—save common sense—and Miss Lane, whose logical mind is matched only by her fascination with psychic phenomena.

Their talents are rare . . . as are their customers. So when Jesperson and Lane are hired to track the nocturnal wanderings of a sleepwalking London business owner, they’re simply happy to be working again. The case begins as a window into the séances and other supernatural parlor games that are so popular these days, and takes a sinister turn as the intrepid investigators pull back the curtain on the cutthroat rivalries underpinning polite society.

But after several mediums go missing, it’s clear that Jesperson and Lane are in over their heads. For they’ve uncovered a presence beyond their understanding—an evil force that won’t hesitate to kill in order to achieve its nefarious ends.

“This is another magnetic novel written by Author Stephen Douglass. From cover to cover, this story is extraordinary, finely honed, suspenseful, romantic, and a total thrill ride.” -Nancy S.

No one wept when Jim Servito died. He left an estate amounting to $325,000,000 when his wife, Karen killed him in Caracas. He had accumulated the fortune the old fashioned way: he stole it from the U.S. and Canadian Governments using a brilliant gasoline tax evasion scam. The money is hot, deposited in a Cayman Island bank, and it is cursed. It has a profound effect on everyone who touched it. It is managed by Alfred Schnieder, an aging and unscrupulous Caracas banker.

Mike King, the love of Karen’s life, and nearly ruined by the Feds’ scorched earth efforts to recover Servito’s fortune, convinces her to keep the money, instead of returning it to its rightful owners. With the assistance of Schnieder, they form The King Trust, a near fatal mistake. Desperate to recover the money, the Feds continue to spare no expense and effort to do so. Phillip, the only child of Karen and Jim Servito, assumes he is the natural heir to his father’s fortune, and has his own greedy plans for the money. Aging Alfred Schnieder relinquishes the trust’s management to Louis Visconti, a thirty-two year old Wall Street whiz kid and brilliant financial engineer. Dubbed ‘The Crown Prince of Wall Street’, and substantially more unscrupulous than Schnieder, Visconti takes The King Trust to bewildering heights, then fails, miserably.

Kerri Pyper, Mike King’s twenty-three year old estranged daughter, has not seen or communicated with her father since she was nine. She discovers the existence of The King Trust and is shocked to learn that her natural father is its Trustee. Visconti, desperate and assuming he is still the smartest man in the room, embezzles the fortune and flees to Monaco. He made only two mistakes: he deceived both Mike King and Alfred Schnieder, and fell in love with Kerri.

“I love time travel stories. This one is absolutely new and a great concept. It has many unknowns in it and it constantly has me wondering what the solution to the puzzle is.” -Bruce

What if I told you you’d be dead in a year? Sounds crazy, right? Because nobody can see the future.

Nobody but me.

You’d think time-travel would be a useful gift for cheating on tests and winning the lottery—stuff like that. I might have enjoyed my ability…if I hadn’t discovered earth will soon turn into a wasteland.

Bodies rotting in the streets. Wilderness eating away at my hometown. A shadow organization rounding up children. Bands of warring tribes fighting each other. And the modifieds—the zombie-like remains of what used to be the human race.

Oh and the boy I have a crush on? It’s his father who will destroy everything if I don’t do something to stop it.

No one can save the world… except me. Because for me, it hasn’t even happened yet. For me, it might never happen.

The only thing is, the more time I spend in the future, the less I want to erase it.

Even if I can prevent what’s coming, I’ll have to sacrifice the one person I can’t bear to lose.

“Yet again another excellent story to carry on with the Modeen adventures. Love this set of books and can’t wait for the next. Keep the action coming.” -P A Thomason

No longer NatSec agents, Troy ‘Wolf’ Wolverton and Josephine Dakota Modeen drop off the radar intending to pursue a conventional life, only to find themselves targeted by a deadly hit squad. Having been dragged back into the fray by the unexpected attack, they’re left wondering if their past will forever haunt their future.

With a new faction vying for control of the Black Mamba criminal organisation, it’s uncertain at first who’s responsible for the attempted hit. NatSec team leader Ben Logan provides what support he can to his two ex-agents, but he’s faced with a more pressing issue. The US Department of Defence is demanding additional on-ground surveillance at a high-tech Australian laboratory, where final testing is underway of the DOD’s latest and most advanced weapon.

A weapon that could alter the course of modern warfare and cement America’s position as the world’s dominant superpower.

Unless the prototype falls into the wrong hands….

My virginity.

A forbidden auction…

Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld.

When you’ve been a soldier as long as I have, you learn a few things: not to take shit, to stay away from those that dish it with impunity, and to train hard so your reputation settles disputes for you.

Trouble still seemed to find me like thoughts of Princess Ilara in a short skirt, but I’d managed to survive it.

Until she went missing.

Now there’s no avoiding trouble. I’m looking for it, in every way possible. I’m going to get Ilara back—no matter what planet she’s on or who tries to stop me—and I’ll take down anyone who stands in my way.

Curtis Mackley left Blind River the moment he turned eighteen, fleeing to Manhattan to follow his dream of being an FBI agent. Fourteen years later, he’s a respected member of the Bureau, married to the woman of his dreams, and soon to be a father. He’s inches away from everything he ever wanted.

Then he and his partner, Frankie Lassiter, are sent to Blind River to investigate the disappearances of four young women, and Curtis’s visceral hatred for the town are the least of their problems.

There are almost no clues, the chief is out of ideas, a reporter is exploiting the disappearances to further her own career, and the prison looming over the treetops is a constant reminder of the criminals who ruled Blind River during Curtis’s childhood.

When Sam Marino, the man who plunged Blind River into darkness once before, escapes from prison, Curtis and Frankie find themselves in a battle for the soul of Blind River itself.
