“Loved this book. It’s my kind of mystery. Enjoy a book I hate to put down and this was it. Leah is such an independent character and a person who is totally believable.” -Dyan F.


Susan Hunter’s not quite hard-boiled, not quite cozy sequel catches back up with savvy, independent sleuth Leah Nash along the icy twists and turns of small town mystery in Wisconsin, spiraling down a rabbit hole of fraud, layers upon layers of family secrets, and murder.

“All of us are dying,” states a cryptic Betty Meier to no-nonsense (and oft-accused smart-mouth) reporter Leah Nash one morning. Betty’s a retired nurse suffering from Alzheimer’s, so Leah’s not particularly surprised.

But hours later, Betty’s house ends up torched—and Leah’s covering it for the tiny Himmel Times Weekly, where she’s still stuck after an incident involving her penchant for mouthing off. She’s casually dismissed as unable to mind her own business by first responders (no surprise there)… but she can’t help wondering—did the old lady absent-mindedly leave the stove on? Or is something more sinister at work? Because Leah’s day’s about to get a whole lot more perplexing.

She receives a midnight phone call from a mysterious young woman named Isabel, begging her to investigate the death of her wealthy father, Garrett Whiting, a renowned surgeon with possible ties to fraudulent activity. Boohoo, thinks our heroine. Except Isabel found him in his study with a bullet to the brain and a poisonous rum and coke in hand.

Leah soon uncovers Whiting’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s, meaning the end of his prestigious medical career, plus a few financial details doe-eyed Isabel conveniently omitted from her plea. Lies follow more lies… until small town snooping reveals twists Leah never saw coming.

Fearless Leah’s never been a shrinking violet, and mystery fans will love her smartass pluck coupled with her quintessentially midwestern posse: her handsome cop best friend Coop, her overbearing but loving mother, and her delightful gay pal Miguel. She’ll need all the support she can get as she navigates the airtight connections of small town America to get to the bottom of medical misconduct, family drama, a complex drug ring, and a likely murder—growing more likely by the minute.

#2 Amazon Bestseller

An epic fantasy of love, war, honor, and vengeance, set in a world on fire.

An action-packed adventure of the highest order, The Bulls of War provides a sweeping tale of an empire on the precipice of war with its hated rival, their fragile truce teetering on the edge of a sword. Tens of thousands of troops stand at the ready, only an order away from battles on a scale unseen in centuries. Some factions within the Imperial capital fight to keep the peace, while others shirk no scheme, murder, or terror in their quest to trigger war – a war some fear could rend their empire apart.

It is in the midst of this dangerous game of brinksmanship that Generals Tyghus and Kyrus soon find themselves, pulled towards opposite sides of the growing rift. Against a backdrop of ruthless politics and the drumbeat of war, their friendship is put to the ultimate test as they struggle to save their country, themselves, and those they love – all while battling their own tragic pasts.

“Finding Carly her well deserved happily ever after made this story one of the best I’ve read in awhile. Kudos for a well written book and wonderful ending.” -SM

She loves kids and volunteers in the community in her spare time. To most people, it might seem like she has a great life, only she has demons in her closet. Big scary nightmares about her past that threaten her future chance at happiness, forcing her to always look over her shoulder.

Sean Callahan loves his job as CFO of Harper Construction. He’s laid back, funny and always willing to lend a hand. As the youngest child from a big Irish family, he’s used to being waited on hand and foot, not that he ever wants that. He had to leave his hometown just to prove he could stand on his own two feet—prove to his family he was an adult.

When Carly walks into his office one day, he realizes that all he ever wanted is standing right in front of him. The only problem is she’s skittish, almost fragile. Coming from a family full of strong independent women, he isn’t sure how to handle her, or if she even wants to be handled.

From the moment he sets foot on the ice, Dr. Grant Poole finds himself in a strange world of unexpected beauty but fraught with extreme dangers he has tried his whole life to avoid. Greeted with suspicion, he soon realizes Kate is hiding something.

When a mysterious illness strikes her crew and an intense storm engulfs their tiny research station, Kate can no longer shield the truth from Grant. Thrown together in a struggle to survive, they are trapped between keeping Kate’s secret and protecting the lives of thousands, even millions.

Time is running out. Can they find a way to save everyone and still preserve Kate’s discovery?

Imagine if you left this world in 1994 and returned in 2011…

Joel Berskin is about to come out of a coma after being hopelessly trapped between life and death for over seventeen years. The last time he was conscious, at thirty-one, O.J.

When he turns on the strange-looking flat screen in his room at the nursing home, he hears reporters on one channel after another talking about Charlie Sheen’s infamous meltdown.

After his mother arrives at his bedside, he learns that his father has died, his wife has divorced him, and the music store that he owned for most of his adult life has been sold. As Joel grapples with the loss of his independence, he realizes that his mother, who has driven him crazy since birth, will be his caretaker for the foreseeable future. Luckily, angels disguised as therapists and the support of old friends help him through a grueling rehabilitation.

When the people of Barit first saw the silver glint of sky craft, they felt awe. Then awe turned to fear. And they found a name for the mysterious newcomers. Sky raiders.

Garek’s one year of duty as a guard walking the walls of Garamundo was extended to two when the sky raiders appeared. Two long years away from home and his lover, Taya. When he finally returns, the town is empty. While Garek was protecting Garamundo, the sky raiders were taking their victims from his hometown.

Taya can’t bear looking into the night sky. All she can see is Barit, her home planet. Impossibly, the sky raiders have brought her and their other victims to Shadow, the planet that shadows her own, and looking up makes her aware of everything she’s lost. Garek is out there somewhere. She knows he’ll look, but he’ll never find her.

She and the other captives have to find a way to escape. Without the food and clothes the sky raiders bring them from their raids on Barit, they’ll starve on the almost barren wastes of Shadow. And when they’ve given the sky raiders enough of what they want, that’s exactly what the sky raiders will leave them to do.

What Taya doesn’t realize is she’ll have some help with her plan. Because Garek isn’t giving up on finding her. And he’s even more resourceful than she could ever have imagined.

Nothing is going to keep him from Taya. Not even space itself.

This unlikely pair just might be the perfect allies–in war and out. But as the battle to stop GrandGoods heats up and sparks of attraction turn to something more, will Norah’s bigger-picture perspective go with Cam’s “keep it as it is” attitude?

The Ephialtes Trilogy chronicles the conflict between Earth and Mars, triggered by Mars’ secession from the USAN in the aftermath of World War IV. The stories of The Ephialtes Shorts Collection make up the connective tissue between books one and two of the trilogy. The collection comprises all four previously released shorts together with the exclusive Ephialtes Short V: Why Am I So Clever?

Why Am I So Clever?

Dr Daniel Kostovich, head of R&D at Venkdt Mars Corp and Special Adviser to the MSS, has always been a smart cookie. When he starts speculating on the provenance of his abilities he finds more questions than answers.

As various possible solutions come and go Kostovich works on the pressing issues facing Mars – food production, defence equipment, and the unresolved conflict with the USAN. Is the ultimate answer to his question unknowable and, given the storm clouds gathering on the horizon, shouldn’t his undivided attention be elsewhere?

Be All You Can Be

When MSS Officer Kristen Stahl is seriously injured in the Battle of Allentown Spaceport the stability of her old life is thrown upside down. Along with her injuries she has to cope with a failing relationship and the possibility there is no longer a place for her in her beloved Martian Security Service.

An uncertain future awaits all of Mars, but it seems the fates are determined to test Officer Stahl to the very limit of her capability. Can she fight her way back to where she needs to be, or is the simple act of survival victory enough?

Son of New York

The USAN isn’t the place it used to be. The Martian deuterium embargo is causing huge economic damage, and the public is restive. Student Adam Wilson believes in his country but is reluctant to voice his feelings in light of the burgeoning protest movement’s belligerent attitude.

Following his own brush with authority Adam has to reassess his beliefs. Could it be that their once great president has stepped over the line? With a huge schism looming Adam is going to have to pick a side, but in a world filled with uncertainty it will be no easy choice.

A Cold Wind Blows

The huge biodomes in southwest Marineris supply Mars with food. Landing a job there is a dream come true for Kimberly Gooding, whose ultimate goal is to save enough money to emigrate to Earth.

When she’s called on to do some work outside the domes an urban legend about the ghost of a dead commander gives her pause. The conflict between her rational mind and some baser instincts takes centre stage, and her trust in her workmates is called into question. Is the problem lurking somewhere outside the domes or is it buried deep in Kimberly’s subconscious?

See the Worlds

Joining the army is simply a way out for a young person from the backwaters of the USAN, and landing a plumb posting at the garrison on Mars seems to be the icing on the cake. However, the trip of a lifetime coincides with the Martian bid for independence.

As the cushy posting turns into something far more harrowing our narrator reflects on the events that took him to Mars and casts a fearful eye on what the future might hold.

The Ephialtes Shorts look back to the first book of the trilogy and forward to the second, exploring characters and events from each in new and unexpected ways. Does the ghost of a lost commander really roam the Martian outlands? How would it feel to be a patriotic young American coming to realise it may be necessary to reassess your values? As a trooper injured in the episode depicted at the close of Ephialtes, how would you cope with your rehabilitation? Just why is Kostovich so damned clever?

Forty something, self-proclaimed cougar, Rebecca is committed only to her cats and her career. Her veteran single girl lifestyle has been peaceful and happy – that is until she started dating age-appropriate Steve, an entomology professor with a sweet smile and demeanor to match. Who knew an insect scientist could be so appealing?

The problem? Steve is a widower with baggage to spare. Memories of his late wife fill his home. Smiling photos and jars of bugs serve as constant reminders of Steve’s continued attachment to his dearly departed wife, Noreen, who shared his passion for creepy crawlies!

Now that Rebecca is facing her commitment phobia by moving in with Steve, she is becoming more unhinged. Behaving more like her zany friends than her level-headed self, she burns her butt at the tanning salon, crashes on energy drinks, and even loses a hamster. Throw into the mix a few delusional relatives, a sarcastic teenager, and a fluffy dog who sheds a new dog every day, and Rebecca doesn’t recognize her old self.

And if that isn’t enough to push her over the edge, her smokin’ hot ex returns, reminding her of a simpler time with a man who carries no more baggage than a wallet.
