“A whip-cracker…” -Chicago Tribune


The 22nd Century.

Dr. Charles Forbin is Earth’s most powerful man. As mediator between Colossus, the Super Computer, and the rest of humanity, Forbin holds the key to Earth’s fate.

When Colossus, an awe-inspiring technological creation suddenly became self-aware and took upon itself the task of righting humanity’s wrongs with no regard for humans themselves, Forbin intervened.

He took the decision to turn off his great machine – but could not do it alone.

Forbin called upon invaders from Mars.

The Martians did their fastidious work, shutting down Colossus.

The Earth descended into chaos. Rival factions sparred for supremacy, with only Forbin to control the populace and maintain order.

But now, the Martians have returned. And they want compensation.

A race so technologically advanced, towering in scope and innovation … What could they possibly want from Earth?

Only one thing: its oxygen.

The Martians are in need of Earth’s most natural resource, after radiation from the Crab Nebula threatens to eradicate all of their stores.

Forbin is asked to design a super Collector in order to solidify the Earth’s supply of oxygen – or, a large proportion of it – to be handed over to the Martians.

But to do so would condemn the lives of hundreds of millions of Earth’s inhabitants.

There is only one entity on Earth with the power to stop the Martians…

Colossus must return.

The supercomputer is the only chance Earth has to defend itself…

But can Forbin reactivate his creation in time?

Or will Colossus, once tyrant, now potential savior, turn to dust, along with the rest of humankind?

“If you are looking for a heart-pounding series with enough plot twists to keep you guessing, highly-developed characters, and exceptional writing, Clark delivers on all fronts.” – MPG

Volume 1-3 of the Cleary Case Files follows FBI Agent Shawn Cleary as she pursues killers with disparate motives, methods, and signatures. There are no cliffhangers, but there is so much character development in each succeeding volume that reading them in order would enhance the experience.

Volume 1: First, Kill All The Lawyers

FBI agent Shawn Cleary realizes a cunning killer has taken Shakespeare’s advice literally as the body count of poisoned lawyers rises. Shawn must find a way to work with Sgt. Ed Pulaski of the Washington, D.C. Police Department, who usually works alone because of his irascible personality.

Shawn’s romantic interest and her many relatives lend a humanizing touch to the revelations of dirty politics allowing character development to drive the story. As the evidence begins to implicate Shawn in an elaborate conspiracy perpetrated by a surprising source, Shawn is forced to flee to prove her innocence.
Pulaski is conflicted by an underlying feeling of respect for Shawn and must choose between helping her or her pursuers. The shocking climax occurs at a historic theater, where Shawn confronts an evil enemy while Pulaski wonders if he made the right choice.

Volume 2: Two Kill Again

Camping will never be the same! The National Park Slasher’s multiple victims are scattered across the country, adding to the fear that nobody is safe. FBI Agent Shawn Cleary pursues the ruthless killer through some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable to end the nightmare.

This follow up novel further develops Shawn as a complex character with a more empathetic side when she uses her skills as a psychologist to help a horribly injured child recover her memories and identify the killer. Pulaski reveals his softer side as he becomes involved in the newest case from a direction nobody would ever suspect.

Shawn sifts through false clues until a startling discovery after a horrific attack in Yosemite sends her to Glacier National Park with the knowledge that the attacks are more personal than she could have believed. Amid blizzard conditions, Shawn leads her wary team to the treacherous, snow covered trails of Glacier for a stunning confrontation.

Volume 3: Third Breath

Ebola outbreaks occupy the headlines, but the Superbugs created by a monster could be the cause of the next pandemic. Dr. Jamie Carpenter, enlisted by FBI Agent Shawn Cleary, agrees to an undercover assignment to discover the identity of a mass murderer whose goal is death on a global scale.

Meanwhile, Shawn is trying to convince her associates that recent suicides are the result of a criminal conspiracy. She theorizes that a splinter group is mimicking the NSA’s eavesdropping, identifying would be criminals, and cleverly eliminating them. The self-named Patronus prevents a massacre and declares society as its client.

The disparate cases are merged with Cleary acting as a mentor to Carpenter, trying to keep her focused on their common goals-find the perpetrators and prevent a pandemic. The novel races to a surprising conclusion tempting the reader to scan the chapters a second time looking for missed clues.

Richard III and the Princes in the Tower – Amazon
by A.J. Pollard
Rating: 3.8
Genre: Non-Fiction
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“Deserves special and lasting attention.” –Medieval World

Richard III has divided opinion for over five hundred years.

Traditionally, he has been perceived as a villain, a bloody tyrant and the monstrous murderer of his innocent nephews.

Yet to others he was and remains a wronged victim who did his best for kingdom and family, a noble prince and enlightened statesman tragically slain.

This stimulating book explores the story of Richard III and the tales that have been woven around the historic events of the period.

It discusses his life and reign and the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower; and assesses the original sources upon which much of the ‘history’ is based.

While telling the story as he sees it, Professor Pollard also suggests that ‘the truth’ may never be known: the controversial nature of the events at the time is partly to blame; but at least as important are the paucity of the surviving evidence and the fact that the received stories are now so deeply ingrained.
