War is everywhere.

Shae is consumed by a vicious war between the human Imperium and a brutal race known only as the Raz. Humanity stands on the edge of destruction as the Razian forces advance city by city, burning everything in their path.

The Screen Conspiracy

View trailer on my amazon author page: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Maxwell-Black/e/B0034ODIH6/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0 or alternatively on youtube @: http://youtu.be/DQSnmwE9S6k

Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Excellent
It was a very fast moving and excellent story. I thought that the author covered some unpleasant aspects in the story without going into too much detail, which made it a more pleasant read for me personally.

Product Description:

Washington where nothing is what it seems. Not knowing that can cost you your life.

The Screen Conspiracy intertwines a range of sensitive social and political issues in a 330 page novel, encompassing all the hallmarks of a good murder, mystery and suspense thriller with strongly developed characters, each with their own unique story.

Jack Halpin, once an up and coming senior executive, is on a downward career and personal projectory. His beliefs and all the vestiges of his career and privileged family life are challenged as he is submerged in a dangerous world for which he is ill prepared. A member of the Fairfax Gun Club, Jack is a traditionalist who believes in the right to bear arms, law and order. He has a strained relationship with his wife Poppy, the daughter of respected Senator Jock Kessles, a man who is deeply disappointed in his unsuccessful son-in-law.

Unknown to Jack, the mysterious death of a senator is the signature tune to a traumatic change in his world and everything he has taken for granted. Surviving the onslaught of rapid, life or death challenges and the sinister forces facing him, will require all his resolve. This journey will bring him face to face with murder, political intrigue, depravity and betrayal.

The Screen Conspiracy is an intelligent thriller which uses fiction and an array of unique characters, to tease out a political conspiracy where evil, reality and patriotism overlap seamlessly. Strong characters, unexpected consequences, racy humor and a readable, escalating tempo combine to make this a novel that immerses the reader in the storyline and search for justice.

Excerpt:

In the beginning God created heaven and earth, then he created Lake Tahoe. That sales pitch ran through Senator Tom Riley's mind as he sat in his car, parked in the drive of his elegant manor home overlooking the lake. It was the house of his dreams, he had the family of his dreams, he had the life of his dreams. His love for politics and Washington would always be second to his life here in Zephyr Cove. Washington life punctuated his weekends at home rather than the other way round.

The light was dimming over the lake. He watched as his wife, of thirty years, Olivia, moved throughout the house, silhouetted against the warm glow of lamps and the log fire. Choices, he had choices. His palm wiped the sweat from his brow. One choice lay on the passenger seat, his revolver. Beside it lay his cell phone. My god, how could he leave her such a legacy of scandal and loss. But dignity, his dignity, would be intact.

He argued back and forth with himself. There was no third choice. He had to choose. Another figure appeared through the glow of light on the balcony. His beautiful daughter, Emma. She saw him in the car and waved down. He smiled back. He reached to the passenger seat and picked it up. He knew what he had to do.

Vintage Murder (Robbie Cutler diplomatic mysteries) - the original diplomatic mystery, and still the best seller in that category.

Here's one of the 5 Star Reviews:

"VIntage Murder has that tone and pacing of those good mysteries of the past. I really enjoyed the story. When Robbie Cutler tries to solve an American wine writer's death he becomes a target for murder himself. The story traverses France and Spain - you'll enjoy the scenery. I did! Robbie's a smooth customer and Sylvie certainly agrees. I liked the romantic thread of Robbie and Sylvie's developing relationship. A little mystery, a little romance...a good read!"

Hello. Thanks for the op. Please check this out.

A book for aged 8 - 108. A group of six friends are official members of the Red Eagles club. They live in an area of London where they have access to open spaces to wreak havoc and enjoy their holidays to the fullest. They occupied
themselves with various entertaining and dramatic activities throughout the summer each year.
The Red Eagles consists of five boys and one girl, she is a tomboy who insisted on joining the group and had tantrums each time she visited Omi's house. As he is the leader, he accepted her into the group for a peace of mind. The children's ages range from 5 to 14 years old and they are very competitive.

The children are not wealthy but they are privileged to go places and do activities that would make many children envious. Omi likes adventure and when his parents travelled to Bournemouth with a group of nine for holiday, he was very excited. They were to explore a cave on the first day of the trip. This cave was a hideout for soldiers in the two World Wars. When things went wrong in the cave, Omi and his father were not impressed.

When the children carried out a forensic search in a nearby car park, it proved fruitful. Their hard work as detectives helped to capture perpetrators in their neighbourhood and was applauded by the police. When the London riots took place, yet again, the children used their expertise to help the police. They were thoroughly enjoying their holiday when tragedy struck one of the boys who knocked on death's door.

Follow the children on some of their fun-filled adventures as they entertained themselves throughout the summer. Enjoy their laughter, banter and shenanigans.

ABIDING EVIL - a supernatural thriller, but not a gore-fest.

A group of friends and their children travel to a newly re-opened hotel that lies a mile or so within the boundaries of a vast, ancient forest. Cut off by an unexpected and powerful early snowstorm they soon realise that the almost impenetrable forest surrounding them is hiding a dark, abiding malevolence.
And it is hunting them.
Battling the deep snow, poorly equipped and with no communication or hope of help from the world beyond the trees, the friends are thrown into a desperate and terrifying fight for survival.

Excerpts from some of 18 ✭✭✭✭✭ reviews:

"A SUPERB READ"...."AMAZING, ENTICING, WITH WONDERFUL IMAGERY"...."AN INCREDIBLY SPOOKY READ"...."BEST BOOK I'VE READ IN AGES"...."I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS BOOK HIGHLY ENOUGH"...."THIS NOVEL TOTALLY BLEW ME AWAY"

Thanks for reading ;-)

The Barley Hole Chronicles: From Hell to Hamburg 77p

Barley Hole was for my great grandfather Canaan, the land of milk and honey. For my father, it was paradise lost and for my mother, Barley Hole was a curse. It was a place that haunted her spirit and her soul throughout her life. To me, Barley Hole is a name forever etched on the map of my family's heart; it is where betrayal and injustice nearly thrust us into oblivion.
The Barley Hole Chronicles are an odyssey of the human spirit that stretch across time and geography to incorporate, diverse personalities, personal hardships, World Wars and the struggle for peace and love, in a society fallen from grace. These Chronicles document one Yorkshire family's decent into the wilderness of poverty and hunger. It is a personal record of one young man's struggle to survive the great depression, the Second World War and the hazards and wonders of life in post war Germany. The Barley Hole Chronicles are a summation of two memoirs by Harry Leslie Smith 1923 and Hamburg 1947. The Barley Hole Chronicles are a true account of a time and place when life, full of raw emotion, was never so real. It is also a social history of the 20th century at its bloodiest and deadliest time.

Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip £1.28

"Twenty-two years old and ready for peace, Harry Leslie Smith has survived the Great Depression and endured the Second World War. Now, in 1945 in Hamburg, Germany, he must come to terms with a nation physically and emotionally devastated. In this memoir, he narrates a story of people searching to belong and survive in a world that was almost destroyed.
Hamburg 1947 recounts Smith's youthful RAF days as part of the occupational forces in post-war Germany. A wireless operator during the war, he doesn't want to return to Britain and join a queue of unemployed former servicemen; he reenlists for long term duty in occupied Germany. From his billet in Hamburg, a city razed to the ground by remorseless aerial bombardment, he witnesses a people and era on the brink of annihilation. This narrative presents a street-level view of a city reduced to rubble populated with refugees, black marketers, and cynical soldiers.
At times grim and other times amusing, Smith writes a memoir relaying the social history about this time and place, providing a unique look at post-WWII Germany. Hamburg 1947 is both a love story for a city and a passionate retailing of a love affair with a young German woman."

Rubies and Other Gems - the Novel, a Kindle book. Women's fiction with a time-travel twist.

Seeking relief from her unhappy family life, a woman travels back in time only to discover she may have put her future happiness at risk.

"I really appreciated the "real" characters the author created. The story line, while taking a short jaunt from reality, was still what some call cozy. The trials Lily goes through with her family are things we all go through. The end was perfect! I definitely recommend this book to any romantic daydreamer! This is the second book I have read by this author and I will say that she has a way of bringing out some good emotions!"

My 3 novels are all available for £1.53 on Kindle:

Noontide Owls is a fantasy for ages 9 -109.
Maara, the girl with three blessings, stares in disbelief out of the window of her uncle's cottage down by the harbour. The terrible army from the Land Beyond is marching out of their lives after one hundred years of cruel occupation.
Thus begins the story of Ambamar and its inhabitants: iron-mining Anvil People, gigantic, agricultural Timekeepers, mysterious, scholarly Scribes and Mariners - the fisher folk. Their histories were written long ago in secret papers, and in a magical speaking book that Elin and Arolan, the two trumpeters who herald the promise of a new dawn, carry down from the Iron Mountain, where it had lain hidden for a century. It is imperative for the people to learn these fantastical tales that bind them, for along with freedom, are hatching the serpents of hatred and distrust.
Elin and Arolan's attempts to bring peace, bring them instead to the brink of disaster. It is left to Maara and her band of like-minded citizens to try and save them and to stop the ruin of Ambamar. Their task is fraught with danger, as they encounter destructive nature spirits, heroes and villains, raging seas, desert sands, dark forests and magical creatures.

In Darshan: a Journey the half-Indian heroine, 18-year-old Sara, travels from Oxford, via Germany and America and finally back to India in her search for her father and in a quest to resolve her feelings of 'rootlessness'. Her journey is fuelled by her longing to belong rather than 'not quite fitting in' anywhere. Along the way she gets herself into more trouble than she could ever have anticipated, and learns a lot about love.

The Moon's Complexion : Acclaimed journalist Hannah Peterson has taken flight to India after a series of sinister events surrounding the release of her controversial new book in the UK.
However, among the ancient tombs, lush jungles and chaotic cities of South India, someone is waiting for her. Meanwhile, young doctor Ashok Rao leaves his stellar career as a consultant in London to return to his family in Bangalore to choose a bride.

In addition I have 5 prize-winning short stories available on Kindle, each priced at £0.77

Likened to The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and Second Glance by Jodi Picoult

Do you believe you've lived before? Julia does. Since she was a child she's had dreams, memories and visions of what she believes are previous lives.

She doesn't pay much attention to these flashbacks until her grown-up son dies and, at the same time, she's suspended from her job as a doctor. With her present day life - including her marriage - falling apart around her, Julia turns to her past lives as an escape.

For the first time, she meets someone whom she recognises from a previous existence. She is drawn to get to know him. But while, in the past, he was her teenage sweetheart, in this life he's a murderer. Present and past entwine, culminating in a dramatic conclusion.

Set in Nottingham and Lyme Regis.

The Girl on the Swing
