Terrorists. A Suitcase Nuke. Operation Saladin launched against North America.
Fast-paced, page turning action in The Scorpion , Book 2 in the Daily Express Chronicles. Once again, go behind the headlines for murder, action and romance in this newspaper thriller and sequel to DEADLINE.
Two 5-star reviews:
Author J. D. Michael Phelps writes: "SCORPION is worthy of TEN STARS . . . hope Amazon realizes Five Stars is just not enough for some novels."

Author Arthur J. Levine: "This well written book is pure entertainment and a great read. Easily deserves five stars. James A. Anderson has done it again."

Ben Blake, an eighteen year old British Intelligence agent brimming with gifts; intellectual genius, striking appearance, impeccable acting skills and a heightened sixth sense... gifts that all guarantee the success of his first undercover assignment. He effortlessly infiltrates university life in Cambridge and befriends Cathy, the daughter of billionaire Edward Carter, one of the most influential and politically secure titans of the time.
Samantha Black, known as the elusive and exquisitely petite Sam. She rises from the ashes and battles her dark legacy. Her cryptic past and deep secrets become firmly intertwined with Ben's investigations, shredding his carefully thought out plan to bits.
Jake Snell, the young rugged Earl of Yorkley, the enigma, the rogue full of vices....but possessing abundant resourcefulness, creativity and determination. He is Ben's only lifeline in this treacherous game.
The Blake Curse is all about heartrending choices, fast paced suspense and that faith in the thread of human goodness.

The Oktober Projekt a thriller by R J Dillon - only 98p - FREE on Kindle - this Bank Holiday Sunday 3rd June.

For Nick Torr, a senior officer in the Secret Intelligence Service's (SIS) Covert Directorate CO8, Operation Salvage was intended to be nothing more than a mundane collection from an SIS agent in Moscow. Betrayed, captured, beaten and tortured, Torr's nightmare has only just begun as Moscow attempts to protect its Oktober Projekt, raising the stakes of espionage to terrifying new heights.

Retracing the trail from Moscow, Torr becomes locked in a gritty secret world where blackmail and murder are the standard weapons in personal battles for survival. Drawn into an increasing destructive chain of events demanding high personal sacrifices, Torr's return to London offers no escape. Accused of being `turned' by the Russians, Torr is forced to ruthlessly clear his name and discover which one of his senior colleagues betrayed him, which of them is Moscow's asset, which of them ordered the brutal execution of his wife. Only when Torr unmasks Moscow's agent in London will the spiral of killing finally end.

5 Star reviews:

"One of the best thrillers i have read in a while. action and intrigue from page one and well worth a read".

"My first discovery was exceptionally professional writing, and a hook that compelled me to push the button and buy the book. This is indeed the thinking person's spy story".

"If you like spy thrillers with an ever twisting and at times complex story line then this ones for you, the plots and twists and descriptive feel make you believe you are really there in the midst of the plot. Could easily make a fantastic film. Best spy thriller I have read in a long time".

For all you hi-tech, urban thriller, zombie dystopia fans out there -- all three of you ;o)

I'm doing a one-time 5-day free promo of my GAMELAND series starting today. It's the first book that's free to celebrate the launch of the second:

SERIES DESCRIPTION:
A group of tech-savvy teenagers breaks into Long Island's Gameland, a formerly militarized wasteland that was, for years, abandoned to the Infected Undead before being reclaimed by a government-sponsored company interested in merging virtual reality and survival gaming into a single seamless entertainment package. But while breaking into The Game turns out to be a lot easier than they could ever have imagined, breaking out is one hell of a killer.

GAMELAND Episode 1: Deep Into The Game (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) FREE
Jessie and her gang of game jackers discover a way to break into Gameland, but it requires the assistance of outsider Jake Espinosa. His inclusion raises tensions within the group, particularly between Jessie and her boyfriend, Kelly. After a nearly-fatal accident during preparation, emotions run dangerously high, but it only makes them all the more determined to succeed. What they don't know is that one of them has a secret reason for going, and it doesn't involve any of them returning any time soon.

GAMELAND Episode 2: Failsafe (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) ($1.99)
Jessie and Kelly clash after one of their group gets stranded among the Infected Undead, prompting Kelly to make a rash decision which will ultimately deliver the hackers into the hands of those who would turn them all into mindless players in The Game.

(also comes with a special free offer inside!) Once the KDP-S enrollment expires in July, I'll be pubbing it elsewhere, so this is a one-shot deal, folks ;o)

A combined book of both episodes was published yesterday as well: GAMELAND Episodes 1-2 (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) ($2.99).

Thanks,
Saul

New review of The Survival of Thomas Ford on Amazon UK from Roz Morris, author of MY MEMORIES OF A FUTURE LIFE and NAIL YOUR NOVEL:

5.0 out of 5 stars If someone died beside you, how do you survive?, 21 May 2012
By roz morris "Roz Morris, author: Nail Your Nov... - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Survival of Thomas Ford (Kindle Edition)

A story about a man who survives a crash in which his wife dies. But the driver who caused the collision is hunting him down because he is worried about being identified.

From this apparently straightforward premise comes a story that is tense and gripping - but far from simple. The characters Thomas must outwit are unhinged, amoral lowlifes, from a milieu that gentle Thomas has never before had to encounter - like most of us who live normally and quietly. This gives the novel a universal, mythical quality. This is a story of survival, but not just physical escape. It is a crawl back to life after a clash with barbarous, feral forces. It is also a clash with conscience - if someone died beside you, and you feel responsible, how do you survive? Do you even deserve to? How can you ever redeem yourself to live a normal life? Thomas finds himself in a world where men have no consciences as he does battle with his own.

But this is no story of navel gazing. The plot works on a literal level as well as a symbolic one and the characters are solid as much as they are embodiments of forces. The prose is bold and unfancy, yet supple enough to connect with the vast and elemental. Although there is a good deal of violence, which Logan doesn't shy away from, he has a knack of not showing it to you, but still giving you the impact of the experience. So a cat watches mesmerised as something horrid and bloody goes on in a family's living room (itself another level of irony only visible when you step back and analyse). I frequently found myself rereading pages - not because of any problem with clarity, but because a phrase drummed in my head long after the plot had dragged me past, demanding a second look to enjoy it again. The storytelling is effortless, the echoes are long lasting. Do read it.

The Dancing Boy
If Shafiq hadn't shouted a warning Sgt Tom Gillet would have died. Instead, when the IED exploded he lost his right foot. Days later Shafiq's father was beheaded by the Taliban, his mother and sisters raped and shot as punishment for aiding the coalition forces. Shipped back to the UK and on the threshold of PTSD, Gillet discovers Shafiq has been sold into an Afghan cultural tradition known as `Bacha Bazi' child sex slavery, to an Afghan tribal warlord. Desperate for one last shot at action Gillet returns to Afghanistan as a civilian intent on searching for Shafiq and bringing him back to the UK. What happens next is stunning, and reveals a darker side of the Afghanistan conflict.
This book is not about war, it is because of war.
Not for the squeamish.

Going Down by Steve Martin
This novel follows a young man's journey into the dark world of a tough young offender institution as he is sentenced to two years' imprisonment. It is a savage world in which he will either sink or swim.

For those who sink, the consequences are dire but - for those who learn to swim - the damage is far greater!

This novel will take you into a world that is seldom seen. Written by an author who spent several years in a young offenders' prison, the novel has the power of an accurately portrayed and vividly displayed world of violence, nihilism, dark humour and despair.

Hi

Just to mention this new US review of Take No More - the Murder Mystery Thriller:

5.0 out of 5 stars

'Thrilling Murder Mystery!!

"Take No More" by Author Seb Kirby is one great, suspenseful novel. It grabbed my interest right at the onset by starting off with a mysterious murder.

James Blake is the number one suspect in what is believed to be, the murder of his wife, Julia. He is driven to solve this crime out of love for his deceased wife. He defies the legal system in London and makes his way to Florence, Italy to retrace her last steps in order to make some sense of her untimely death. The more information he gleans from her encrypted work on her computer, the more clues he finds to help solve her murder. His own life is at risk as well as the lives of his brother Miles and friend Sergio when they try to help him.

There are many unexpected twists and turns in this well-written novel. I was captivated with the plot and the flow of the book right until the final chapter. I really liked the main character, James Blake, and his fearless pursuit of the truth. "Take No More' actually left me wanting more! I eagerly look forward to reading more books by this talented author.'

And just to add that my new novel is published on Kindle on 1st July! Please look out for it.

Best wishes

Seb
