Mean: A Psychological Thriller Novelette

Mean is a novelette (longer than a short-story but shorter than a novella) that follows Cassandra Connelly's therapy sessions. She goes to a psychiatrist seeking help, because she believes she is mean inside. She has anger issues, and there's a person she truly hates; so much she is convinced he or she deserves to die. She is thinking about killing said person - would the therapy help her decide not to kill somebody or push her to do exactly that?

FREE for today only, 4th July, Past Imperfect A classic thriller set between France, California and London, which in 2007 was entered in a top ten all time best legal thrillers list. Details below:

Two boys. One Murder. Sometimes justice takes more than a lifetime.

A car accident in California, a deadly assault in Provence, and two boys 30 years apart are left battling for their lives.

Dominic Fornier is the detective who finds himself at the heart of the investigation. A simple provincial case that becomes one of the largest and most important in French criminal history.

Fornier's only hope is to prove the link between the two boys thirty years apart. A compulsive journey through forensic, medical and psychiatric evidence between France, the USA and London; a breathless paper chase of clues from a young boy's psyche... and a desperate race against time with a killer who will stop at nothing.

Reviews:

The Times
'Matthews maintains the suspense... an engrossing odyssey into the seamy side of a world that is so near, yet sometimes seems so far. Compulsive reading.'

Time Out
'Impressive... strong characterization and a relentless race against time to avert the worst carry the reader along the thick pages of this psychological and legal thriller with a difference.'

Prima
'Intriguing thriller (with a) ...dogged and sexy French detective. Treat yourself.'

Cork Examiner
'One of the most compelling novels I've read... an ambitious and big novel which will keep you enthralled to its last page.'

Yorkshire Post
'A classy, well-written and unusual thriller.'

Dublin Evening Herald
'Matthews delivers one of the best debut thrillers in years, brave, ambitious and remorselessly entertaining. Past Imperfect is a stormer.'

Gaspar The Thief is a new humorous fantasy adventure by British author, David A. Lindsay.

Follow the adventures of Gaspar, a freelance thief who stubbornly refuses to swear fealty to the Thieves' Guild.

Cursed with a special affinity for calamity and mishap, and a talent for snatching defeat from the brink of victory, our unlikely hero blunders from one misfortune to the next, yet somehow always manages to survive to tell the tale.

Gaspar and his companions - Hubris, a spellbroker who refuses to pay his dues to Wizards' Hall, and Marna, a feisty thiefess with a quick tongue and a quicker temper - possess an unlucky knack for converting adversity into catastrophe. From a funeral ship to a poisonous seductress, from a goblin army laying siege to an ancient border fortress to a mischievous wood-wight, there's no end to the trouble they get themselves into!

Gifted, A Donovan Circus Novel
Even in a world of freaks, being a Firestarter is considered a dangerous Gift.

Lucy was born with the ability to create and control fire. She longs to leave the human world for one filled with Earthshakers, Transporters, and Chameleons, to name a few. When she rejoins the circus, it's everything she hoped it could be-new friends, a potential love interest or two, and a place where she can be herself.

When troupe members begin turning up dead, however, Lucy is suspected of foul play. She must not only prove her innocence but also realize the full extent of her power. To find the real murderer, she must uncover the truth behind her father's fiery legacy while figuring out whom to trust within her new circle. Little does she know the history of the Donovan Circus and its enemies might actually destroy the entire gifted world.

She Looks Pale - a noveletta told by a young girl confined to the house by her over-protective parents

The title is taken from a schoolgirl levitation ritual, practised by the mother of narrator Hannah. As a result of Meningitis at the age of six, Hannah nearly dies leading her parents to become obsessively over-protective. Her parents gradually dispose of all methods of modern communication and take Hannah out of school until one day, tortured by the evils of the world, her father `disappears' during the Lord's Prayer one mealtime. Hannah's mother continues the self-imposed isolation. Confined in the house, Hannah's only contact with the world is either through the window or through her mother's past.
