I have been planning for days how I am going to set up an chair and drink on the lawn, sit under an umbrella and watch the show.

PRIMAL Mirza (A PRIMAL Action Thriller) (The PRIMAL Series)
by Jack Silkstone
4.4 Stars (189 Reviews)
Genre: Thrillers | Literature & Fiction | Action & Adventure

FREE for a limited time

PRIMAL Mirza is a prequel in the PRIMAL series. It reveals the back-story of Mirza Mansoor, a former Indian Special Forces soldier turned PRIMAL operative. It is approximately 150 pages long.

The year is 1999 and tensions between Pakistan and India are at breaking point. When critical intelligence prompts a cross border raid Indian Para Commandos arrive too late to prevent the deployment of a team of Lashkar terrorists. Mirza Mansoor, a Special Group operative and his partner Himesh Arjun, are all that stands between highly trained jihadists and their sinister objectives. As they track their quarry from the mountains of Kashmir to India’s capital they realize that terrorism is not the only threat they face. In the poverty-stricken slums of New Delhi crime and terror have free reign, greed is king, life is cheap, and heroes are few and far between.

This story is set just after the Kargil war between India and Pakistan, the closest these two nuclear-armed states have come to full-scale conflict. Having been defeated at Kargil, ISI and terrorist proxies escalated operations against India, which culminated in the 2008 Mumbai attack, resulting in over 600 casualties. During this time, the NSG, India’s lead counter-terrorism response unit, was severely under-resourced and -equipped. It’s in this setting of extreme contrasts, corruption, and terrorist threat that I’ve crafted a backstory for one of PRIMAL’s favorite characters.

Tilting: A Memoir
by Nicole Harkin
4.7 Stars (66 Reviews)
Genre: Health, Fitness & Dieting | Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time

We only learned about our father’s girlfriend after he became deathly ill and lay in a coma 120 miles from our home.

Overhearing the nurse tell Linda — since I was nine I had called my mom by her first name — about the girlfriend who came in almost every day to visit him when we weren’t there confirmed that the last moment of normal had passed us by without our realizing it. Up to then our family had unhappily coexisted with Dad flying jumbo jets to Asia while we lived in Montana. We finally came together to see Dad through his illness, but he was once again absent from a major family event — unable to join us from his comatose state. This is the moment when our normal existence tilted.

Dad recovered, but the marriage ailed, as did Linda, with cancer. Our family began to move down an entirely different path with silver linings we wouldn’t see for many years.

In this candid and compassionate memoir Nicole Harkin describes with an Impressionist’s fine eye the evolution of a family that is quirky, independent, uniquely supportive, peculiarly loving and, most of all, marvelously human.

Around The Corner He Hides

It is very odd. After so many years of having an overweight kitty that slept all day and didn’t move much, to now having one that is thinner and more active, is a bit of an adjustment. I had become accustomed to a fuzzy critter who does not jump on counters, fly through the air, or drop from the ceiling at various explainable locations. Lately though, this is where I find myself. Since getting Junebug, my kitty Sinatra has had to be on his toes. No rest for the wicked when that little firecracker is around. This has caused my overweight cat to be active for most of the day, causing him to loose a lot of weight. He has lost so much weight I had to make a vet appointment to be sure his insulin dosage is proper for his weight. I have become a bit jealous of my cat’s weight loss and I am thinking of getting a pet clown to chase me around the house for the next month or so. However long it takes me to lose a few pounds.

FREE for a limited time

As a child, James Ketcham is snatched from the streets of England and sold abroad as an indentured servant to the unforgiving world of the 17th Century Caribbean. But when his passage is interrupted by a terrible battle at sea, he is washed ashore and taken in by an international band of the underclass: English, French, Hollanders, Native Americans and runaway black slaves.

However, as he builds a life with these castaways of humanity, the Empire of Holy Spain launches a campaign to purge all “heretics” from its imperial lands: a campaign that will take from James all that he loves. He abandons his humble ambitions, taking up sword and sail to avenge the atrocities committed by the Spanish Crown and Inquisition, unaware that he would one day become the most feared pirate on the Spanish Main, a hero to his countrymen and The Brethren Prince.

The Brethren Prince is the real story of buccaneers in the New World. It is a thoroughly researched, historically accurate portrayal of life in the mid-17th Century Caribbean, nested in authentic historical events of the time. It captures the cruelty, nationalistic fervor, and religious virulence of the Imperial powers of the day but also the pirates who preyed on them.

Despite being chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized, Dixie Knight is one of the top private investigators in the country, and when a young woman goes missing in the small, Southern town of Devil’s Den, Dixie takes the case. She expected it to be another ordinary missing person case — until it takes a brutal turn.

While visiting relatives on his two-week leave, Marine Liam Cash bumps into Dixie at the local bar, and his attraction to her is immediate. When he becomes suspicious that Dixie’s current case is connected to two unsolved murders in his hometown, he steps in to help investigate, and keep Dixie safe, whether Dixie wants him to or not.

As the bodies start stacking up, Dixie turns the town upside down looking for the killer — could it be the rumored witch that lives in the mountains; the rich, neurotic doctor’s wife; or the perky, blonde receptionist at the local medical clinic?

Time is running out, and Dixie knows she has to put the pieces of the puzzle together before another body turns cold in Devil’s Den.
