4.1 Stars (229 Reviews)
Genre: Action & Adventure | Literature & Fiction

FREE for a limited time

The world may never be the same with these two new detectives.

Murphy and Galveston realize there must be more to life than their mind-numbing cubical jobs. Over a barbeque lunch, Galveston attempts to convince his friend to join him in a daring new career as a private investigator. With nothing to lose, Murphy reluctantly agrees. Relying heavily on their humorous wit and questionable tactics, the men employ a creative approach to their investigations. For a time these methods prove successful, until they push too far and find themselves mired in the case of a lifetime.

An explosion rocks a New England university lab, setting off a carefully orchestrated chain of events. A small device has been stolen, a key to the entire world’s energy problems and the power that comes with controlling it. The fate of the device and its inventor lays with the newly self-proclaimed private detectives.

The two men, under the threat of arrest by the FBI, begin to criss-cross the country and the world, picking up clues to the puzzle of the missing device in England, Mexico, and even Brazil. Dead ends seem at every turn, but with the help of an outcast computer expert, a British spy and former flame of Galveston’s, and a new employee whom Murphy can’t seem to keep his eyes off of, the investigators unwind the case using their unorthodox approach, berating each other at every turn.

Who is looking to control this device and its destiny? Is it the huge multinational security firm, a devious billionaire, or a questionable member of Congress. Murphy and Galveston must find out why something so small is causing problems so large, because the hunters are quickly becoming the hunted.

Flapjack has it all – action, adventure, fun, and humor – without profanity or graphic adult situations (but still plenty of mayhem). So join the adventure and escape with the private eyes of Icarus Investigation.

Widow Walk (Widow Walk Saga Book 1)
by Gar LaSalle
4.4 Stars (73 Reviews)
Genre: Literature & Fiction | Historical Fiction | Sagas | United States

FREE for a limited time

 

Widow Walk is American Historical Fiction in the finest tradition, a direct descendent of Last of the Mohicans and Cold Mountain. LaSalle recounts the brutal, poignant clash between Native American Indian tribes and white settlers in the Pacific Northwest with economy and beauty, writing clean, devastating prose that clutches at your heart. This lean, unsparing narrative will make you look away in sorrow–before raising your fist in triumph. A quintessential rendering of the American Experience.”-
-Richard Barager, author of Altamont Augie, Silver Medal winner 2011 Book of the Year Awards

In the early days of the American Pacific Northwest, small settlements dot the wilds of streams and dense woods. Isaac Evers, a community leader and former militiaman, has established a small colony on Whidbey Island. Though the area appears calmer than in the past, the northern indigenous clans still threaten the livelihood of Isaac’s growing family.
While Isaac is away on expeditions, his wife Emmy tends to the many duties required of a property owner on Whidbey Island. Bold and assertive, Emmy has little time for the restraint of social mores. But as times on the island become more turbulent, her constitution and conviction are tested.

Elsewhere, Haida native Anah-nawitka feels the rush of his first kill and the satisfying vengeance cast from his hand to the head of the invading white colonists. Basking in the praise from his tribemates, Anah starts down a violent path that will alter a great many lives.

Meanwhile, the British and the U.S. Army are quietly grinding against each other following a boundary dispute, leaving men like Captain George Edward Pickett in a tight situation. In charge of the nearby Union fort, Pickett does his best to maintain his authority while he struggles with tragic events in his past.

Weaving these story threads together into a powerful whole, Gerard LaSalle tells the story of an unforgettable American adventure.

Armour For Business

This morning was one of those mornings I was afraid to let my little seven pound Junebug outside to do her morning business. All night last night I could hear a party or battle going on and it sounded like they were pretty large critters. I have never had this problem before. I have always had dogs that were at least forty pounds, and I have never feared that they would get carried off by hawks or stabbed by a racoon. Sorry. I just assume that raccoons use tools and weapons. They seem pretty smart to me. I kinda feel like I could write a note to them asking that they please leave my little dog alone. Bribe them with food and supplies like a radio or a flashlight. It’s easy to picture them using a cell phone huh? With a broom in my hand I let Junebug out for quick business, then it was back in. Maybe I will get her a helmet.

Static Cling (The Irish Lottery Series Book 5)
by Gerald Hansen
4.7 Stars (26 Reviews)
Genre: Literature & Fiction | Historical Fiction | Contemporary Fiction | Literary Fiction

FREE for a limited time

PLEASE NOTE: Although this book is part of the IRISH LOTTERY SERIES, there is no cliffhanger. It is true that the characters get older as the series progresses, but each book is a complete story, and can be enjoyed without having read the previous book.

When an armed robbery at Final Spinz, the dry cleaners where hardened matriarch Fionnuala Flood works, leads to the death of beloved pensioner Mrs. Ming, the ensuing investigation unleashes dark secrets that promise to bring Fionnuala closer to her husband Paddy, her mother Maureen, and the four children of her brood still in town. Or tear them apart forever.
The dysfunctional Floods are ripping apart at the seams. Fionnuala, banished from the family home for a heinous act that threatened the life of her most beloved son, must live, exile-like, in a dilapidated trailer on the outskirts of town, Derry, Northern Ireland. She’s desperate to inveigle her way back into the family so she can rule over them once more with her iron rod and rapier tongue. Paddy and the family wanted rid of her, but if Fionnuala has her way, she’s going nowhere. Like static cling.
Throw into the mix the return of a contestant from Safari Millionaire, some shocking DNA results, and Fionnuala’s plan to save the world from evil, and bestselling author Gerald Hansen’s fifth book about this shocking family is another hilarious ride — part roller coaster, carousel and ghost train — that will leave you gasping, wincing and, most of all, laughing.

I suppose I chose this life, but often times I wonder if the choice was really my own. My name is Sailor Ray, and I’m a demon hunter. There are others like me but we all do what we do for our own reasons. Some want to make the world a better place, while others want balance. I just want revenge.
On the day my father died, I made a pact with a devil, Alfonse. In exchange for saving me from the same fate as my father, I promised him my body as a vessel, and once my revenge is obtained, my soul will also be claimed by him.
I was only using him, and he was already using me. Neither of us planned to keep our end of the deal. When our pact was first made, he was weak, a dying spirit. Now, as he heals within me, I can feel his presence growing stronger with every passing day. I’m not stupid, though.

He plans to take over, and I plan to kick him out.

There’s a new lead on the demon who killed my father. First I kill him, then Alfonse.
