Murderer’s Wake

by J.C. Alonso, Jr.

How far would you go to avenge the murder of a loved one?  Find out in this savage new thriller that also asks philosophical questions about vengeance and redemption.

At sea on a cargo ship, and then through the barrios and whorehouses of Caribbean ports, Cesar Santino must wrestle with his moral and religious convictions to answer this question. His father, a cargo ship captain, takes Cesar’s younger brother to sea for the summer. When Roby falls overboard and his body is never recovered, Cesar is unable to accept this as a simple accident. He drops out of school and signs on the same ship as an ordinary seaman, determined to uncover the truth and render justice.

MURDERER’S WAKE is a hard-edged sea thriller taking place across the Caribbean and South America, but also a psychological study of vengeance and redemption.

 Ken Vose’s Formula One Racing Thrillers


by Ken Vose

“Vose has also done some racing himself and … does a credible job of offering a pretty good driver’s-eye view of the sport, both on and off the track.” — Larry Edsall, Autoweek

When ace driver Pete Hawthorn is offered the chance to return to the Formula One circuit with Scuderia Vitale, a new F-One team, he jumps at it.  His dreams are dimmed, though, by a decades-old tragedy: the mysterious disappearance of his father, James, somewhere in the jungle near Rio de Janeiro, where he was competing in the World Cup Rally twenty years before.

Denis Windsor, who owned the team Pete’s father drove for back then, turns out to also be the moneyman behind the new Vitale team. But Pete puts his suspicions aside as the team works around the clock to ready the powerful new cars. It’s only after the final test session, when Pete and teammate Alberto Vaccarella prove the cars to be fast and reliable enough for the upcoming season, that the past returns with a vengeance as the team arrives at the Circuit Nelson Piquet in Rio de Janeiro.

Has been revised and updated by author to make it even more exciting and thrilling.

by Ken Vose

“This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to find out what automobile racing is all about … Frankly, you’ll get more out of a late night under the blankets with a flashlight and a book like this than in ten showings of DAYS OF THUNDER.” — Automobile Magazine

Pete Hawthorn’s solving of the decades-old riddle surrounding his father’s disappearance in the Brazilian jungle, as told in OVERSTEER, has led to another mystery: the “accidental” racetrack deaths of three members of an elite French racing fraternity. Three men with but one thing in common: all were part of an anti-Nazi resistance group in occupied France during World War Two. There were rumors one member had collaborated with the Gestapo to save the life of a beautiful woman, but no proof ever surfaced.

Now the last living member, Andre Montand, has received a package identical to those received by the other racers who died. It contains a small slab of machined metal often placed in the footwell to keep the driver’s left leg from bouncing around in the cockpit; a ‘dead pedal.’

Pete agrees to drive with Montand in the Mille Miglia, the twisting, dangerous thousand-mile race around Italy, to protect him and unmask the killer. But is he prepared for the twists and turns of one of the most demanding races ever run … and treachery and betrayal that stretches back to the darkest days of the Nazi occupation?

Heather Harlen’s Exciting New Marina Konyeshna Thrillers

0c143b9d30e00b20f6ede5b9c24acf8cHope You Guess My Name

by Heather Harlen

“Ms. Harlen captures the heartbeat (and cholesterol) of Northeastern Pennsylvania in her expertly plotted thriller. I loved the reluctant gumshoe — spunky and fallible Marina Konyeshna — with her weakness for pocketbooks and shoes, and went to sleep wondering what on earth she could get herself—and her family and friends — into next.” — Sara Pritchard, author of Help Wanted, Female

Event planner Marina Konyeshna is a tomboy in peep toe pumps who can plan both elegant soirees and adrenaline-pumping skydiving birthday parties. Unfortunately, she’s crashing on the sofa bed in her mom’s basement, and her career at Prestige Events is veering toward disaster. To make matters worse, Marina discovers the corpse of a girl on the banks of the Susquehanna River, but is forced into silence.

Enter a mysterious and gorgeous client from Turkey. Arman Ocalan, a wealthy construction company owner, takes her out, and sparks fly; but Marina’s boss’s boyfriend warns her to stay away from Arman and his “connections,” leaving her confused. When Arman invites her to form a team for an elite geocaching event, though, she can’t pass up the prize money. As their team’s adventures unfold, the fates of six strangers depend on Marina. If plucky heroines had their own secret society, Marina Konyeshna, Stephanie Plum and Bridget Jones would all know the handshake.

by Heather Harlen

You can’t Keep Marina Down…

It’s been a few months since small-town event planner Marina Konyeshna survived a pursuit by international human traffickers, then a mine collapse. Marina’s friends have questioned the empty whipped-cream vodka bottles and the new tattoo, but she thinks they’re overreacting. Her love life is perking up, but it’s not clear how long her new guy will wait on the sidelines while she buries herself in work.

Still, Marina can’t pack her bags fast enough when a blast from the past offers her the opportunity to work with Russia’s richest woman. In Moscow, Marina’s at first thrilled to find herself taken for a glamorous pop singer who could be her twin . But she soon finds there’s more to being a celebrity than designer clothes and red carpet events.

What follows is a return to the dark world of human trafficking, this time peering into the “red market,” where the human body is currency in ways she never imagined possible. and Marina must learn what it takes to survive – physically, mentally, emotionally, and culturally – thousands of miles from home.

David Poyer’s Novels of Suspense and Adventure

4da97dda3e2ca90256e82b02463c8cc3White Continent

by David Poyer

For thirty years diehard Poyer fans searched used bookstores for the few tattered copies surviving of White Continent. This sprawling first novel reads like a remix of Atlas Shrugged and The Dogs of War. It follows a team of adventurers, mercenaries, outcasts, and entrepreneurs in a daring coup to take over the last unclaimed land on earth — the terrifyingly hostile continent of Antarctica. Using advanced technology to survive, they build a Utopian society, both communal and fiercely individualistic, unlike any that exists elsewhere on earth.  Then, joined under their red, green, and white flag, they find they must fight to defend their new country, from those who want to take it from them.

The geopolitical scene has changed since White Continent was written. But the book is still prescient, in its foreshadowing of today’s conflicting claims and impending resource wars in places like the Arctic and the China Sea. Fans of Poyer’s later books will notice themes he’s still exploring, such as the search for authentic authority, conflicted heroes, and deeply-layered, multidimensional characters who think as well as act.

“Local atmosphere and a good knowledge of treacherous currents keep things on course.” — London Times

9a279c08e8a9f0c87dd648820e9d07a3Hatteras Blue

by David Poyer

The first Tiller Galloway adventure. On a moonless night in March, 1945, a Coast Guard destroyer sank a German U-Boat fifty miles off Hatteras Island, the Graveyard of the Atlantic.  A half-century later, three mummified corpses, wrapped in a decaying rubber raft, come to light during excavation for a new shopping development.  Their reappearance unleashes a tide of powerful forces … neo-Nazis with a ruthless plan to corner the South American drug market, an Israeli intelligence operative, and a shadowy “historian” with his own, even more dangerous plan.

When Hatteras native, salvage diver, and ex-con Lyle “Tiller” Galloway III starts digging into the discovery, he’s forced by an island family cheated of their beachfront land to take on a dangerous silent partner. Together, he and Shadrach Aydlett  will track down what actually happened in the Carolina sand hills so long before, and what everyone’s really after … and finally, face down a ruthless killer in a gut-wrenching battle hundreds of feet beneath the surface.

With vivid diving scenes, and delving deep into the rich oral lore of the Outer Banks, Hatteras Blue’s rare, original hardcover edition sells for over a hundred dollars. This new edition has been revised and updated by the author to make it even more fast-paced, exciting, and authentic.

by David Poyer

Salvage diver and ex-con Tiller Galloway vowed he’d never work for “The Baptist” again. Until the menacing kingpin makes him an offer he can’t refuse, sending him deep into the beautiful blue Caribbean to raise fifty tons of sunken cargo — a dive to the razor’s edge of death.

Caught in the cross fire of a crazed underboss, hostile islanders, and a corrupt Bahamian government, Tiller and his Hatteras Island sidekick Shad Aydlett take on a nightmare of double crosses, as a scenario more sinister than he ever imagined begins to unfold.

From the author of Down to a Sunless Sea comes this shattering sequel to Hatteras Blue, a tale as explosive as those of Hammond Innes and Peter Benchley, and packed with some of the most breathless and vivid undersea scenes ever written.

by David Poyer

On the run from a vengeful drug lord, salvage diver and ex-con Tiller Galloway and his partner, fellow Hatterasman Shadrach Aydlett, need to make themselves scarce.

Where better to lie low than under the murky, hazardous depths of the Gulf of Mexico? Industrial oilfield diving is the most dangerous work under the sea — which is why it brings big money. But there’s more on the floor of the Oil Patch than pipeline and drill rigs.

There’s also a fathomless corruption that may lead to an environmental apocalypse. Tiller can either look the other way, or dig his own watery grave …

by David Poyer

“White-knuckle diving scenes, constant action.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Tiller is a character who grows on the reader … As usual, Poyer provides a smashing climax, this one fraught with danger from man and nature.” — Jacksonville Times-Union

“Claustrophobics beware! David Poyer’s suspenseful cave-diving novel, Down to a Sunless Sea, takes readers into water crevices, submerged limestone tunnels, cramped wormholes and subterranean hell holes that give suffocation new meaning … Vivid, believable descriptions … We can get the fear and adrenaline of cave-diving without ever leaving the dry safety of our favorite comfy chairs.” —  Tallahassee Sun Democrat

Welcome to the most dangerous sport on earth: where cave divers step into murky Florida ponds and end up hundreds of feet below the ground, threading through the narrow passages of Swiss-cheese-like rock formations, heading down tunnels that may open into caverns of breathtaking beauty, or else suddenly collapse in rockfalls that crush out their air and their lives.

Open-water diver and ex-con Tiller Galloway has descended to this watery underworld to find out why an old friend died young — and take one last shot at being a father, a lover, and a friend. But with a woman opening up her heart, and a deadly conspiracy closing in around him, Galloway must navigate between lies told aboveground and truths hidden in the depths … where a violent battle is about to explode.

USA Today-bestselling Dave Poyer continues to be one of America’s most popular writers … and a master of underwater suspense.

“Poyer knows what he is writing about.” — NY Times Book Review

In the old days wolves roamed Hemlock County. Then the earth was raped and left to die. Now these deserted hills are being haunted by new atrocities. What beast or man is leaving frozen, mangled bodies in the woods?

Three unlikely heroes will set out to find the answer: “Racks” Halvorsen, retired oil worker and ex-hunter; Becky Benning, a twelve-year-old who knows only she can save her dying brother — with magic; and Leah Friedman, a New York doctor who suspects the truth behind the killings.
