About the book:

Self-driving vehicles finally arrive. But so do the terrorists.

A thought-provoking thriller about artificial intelligence and the self-driving revolution.

You’ll be forced to consider how you’d react if you were cornered

and trapped in a terrifying life-threatening situation.

Fed up with slogging through the treacherous LA traffic to get to work, Jake Bendel and a cunning team of experts create a roadway system for self-driving cars — preventing thousands of traffic deaths and reducing commute times from hours to minutes.

For three months, no traffic congestion. No accidents. No fatalities. People finally feel safe in their cars. But should they?

Especially when the dark side of humanity sees this as a chance to destroy the United States.

A Syrian terrorist group weaponizes the system and devises a scheme to kill more Americans in one day than the 407,000 + U.S. soldiers killed in World War II.

Viktor, a tormented psychopath and the mastermind behind this ruthless attack, is driven by the voices of his dead mother and Allah …who guide his every move.

While he and his brothers mercilessly annihilate Americans in the name of the Jihad, Viktor plants evidence that convinces the public Jake is the architect behind the most heinous terrorist attack in U.S. history.

But one rogue FBI agent believes Jake is innocent. Together they unearth a mole deep inside the FBI, go off the grid, and hash through a trail of hidden clues to stop Viktor from slaughtering millions of unsuspecting American drivers in a matter of minutes.

The clock is ticking. Can they stop him in time to prevent another savage bloodbath?

Civil Terror: Gridlock will grab you by the throat and pull you into a vicious struggle that will define the fate of the world for generations to come.

If you like Dan Brown, Lee Child, or Jon Grisham, you’ll love J. Luke Bennecke.

SPOTLIGHT with #Review~~REMNANTS~~CAROLYN ARNOLD

REMNANTS

{Brandon Fisher FBI Series, Book 6}

CAROLYN ARNOLD

Remnants (Brandon Fisher FBI Series Book 6) by [Arnold, Carolyn]

“Arnold has created a gritty nightmare of a tale that will churn the stomachs of even the most hard-boiled of FBI agents… Full of grit, gore and enough twists to make even the most diligent of readers hard-pressed to discover the villain, even the ending will keep you on pins and needles.”
–Tome Tender Book Blog

All that remains are whispers of the past…

When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.

With no quick means of identifying the deceased, building a profile of this serial killer is more challenging than usual. How are these targets being selected? Why are their limbs being severed and their bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this person to murder?

The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, though: The killing isn’t going to stop until they figure it all out. And they are running out of time…

My Thoughts:

Remnants by Carolyn Arnold is an heart-pumping Suspense/Thriller/Mystery set in Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia. #6 in “Brandon Fisher FBI series”. While, can be read as a stand alone, readers will find re-appearing characters from the previous books. This was my first time reading Ms. Arnold’s intense FBI series but I was not lost. I found it to be exciting, heart-pumping, intensive, and frightening at times. What a wild ride of police procedurals, FBI tactics, and so much more.

Gritty, with gore, a serial killer, twists and turns, and non-stop action, that will keep the reader turning pages.  The details and police procedures were well-researched and explained so the reader understood. It was as if Ms. Arnold was speaking to the reader directly and in person. The characters were well-developed and engaging. The plot, WOW, was unique, but original, who the serial killer was, was  hard to figure out, as all is revealed, you wonder, how did I not figure this out sooner.  A nail biting Psychological Thriller, to be sure. Don’t read late at night, you might hear monsters (or a serial killer) go bump in the night.

If you enjoy CSI or Criminal Minds T.V. series, you will definitely enjoy “Remnants”. Readers will be engrossed from the beginning to the end. I found this story to be an overwhelmingly gritty story, but what a joy to read.  I look forward to reading more from Carolyn Arnold. Highly recommended for fans of Mystery, Suspense, Psychological Thrillers, and hard-core FBI series.

I received a complimentary copy.

BOOK BLAST~ VISIONS IN THE DARK~LAIN MORRISON with #Giveaway

 

Inside the Book:

Title: Visions in the Dark
Author: Iain Morrison
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Thriller
Format: Ebook

When all sorts of accusations, denials, revelations, disclosures, and leaks are swarming and spilling around the security agencies of the United Kingdom and the USA, it is worse when the Snowden effect erupts. A bruised and slightly disillusioned Commander Elaine Black, training officer and senior security advisor at GCHQ Bude Listening Facility, is plunged into a bewildering and dangerous battle to make sense of and counter a desperate threat to British Security. Headless bodies, fire bombings, threats of chemical warfare unloosed on a small West Country town, apparently straightforward murders and the killing of a policeman make Elaine Black thankful for the involvement of a pair of incorruptible and driven police detectives and the experience and expertise that they bring to the party. However, as the stakes get higher and higher, Elaine is further gratified to have two old fighting companions on side. The question is, can the team confound the multinational conspiracy that stretches to the highest echelons of British and American financial and political establishments?

Ebook Copies of THE KILL LIST & THE KILL SHOT

 

The Kill List: Jamie Sinclair # 1
Released: December 2, 2014

In this taut debut thriller, Nichole Christoff introduces a savvy private investigator with nerves of steel—and a shattered heart.

As a top private eye turned security specialist, Jamie Sinclair has worked hard to put her broken marriage behind her. But when her lying, cheating ex-husband, army colonel Tim Thorp, calls with the news that his three-year-old daughter has been kidnapped, he begs Jamie to come find her. For the sake of the child, Jamie knows she can’t refuse. Now, despite the past, she’ll do everything in her power to bring little Brooke Thorp home alive.

Soon Jamie is back at Fort Leeds—the army base in New Jersey’s Pine Barrens where she grew up, the only child of a two-star general—chasing down leads and forging an uneasy alliance with the stern military police commander and the exacting FBI agent working Brooke’s case. But because Jamie’s father is now a U.S. senator, her recent run-in with a disturbed stalker is all over the news, and when she starts receiving gruesome threats echoing the stalker’s last words, she can’t shake the feeling that her investigation may be about more than a missing girl—and that someone very powerful is hiding something very significant . . . and very sinister.

The Kill Shot: Jamie Sinclair # 2
Released: March 17th, 2015

In an explosive thriller for readers of Lee Child, Alex Berenson, and Brad Taylor, P.I. and security specialist Jamie Sinclair finds herself caught in a dangerous game of international cat-and-mouse.

Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic pouch in an iron grip.

Jamie doesn’t have to wait long to put her unique skills to good use. When she and the courier are jumped by goons outside the Heathrow terminal, Jamie fights them off—but the incident puts her on high alert. Someone’s willing to kill for the contents of the bag. Then a would-be assassin opens fire in crowded Covent Garden, and Jamie is stunned to spot a familiar face: Adam Barrett, who saves her life with a single shot and calmly slips away. Jamie’s head—and her heart—tell her that something is very wrong. But she’s come way too far to turn back now.

FROM BLAIR BABYLON!
The Angel of Death
(Police Snipers and Hostage Negotiators #1)
An Angel Day Novel
DECEMBER 23, 2014
To protect and to serve, or to save her own brother?
Angel Day, the lead sniper for the Phoenix Police Department, got her nickname “The Angel of Death” the old-fashioned way: she earned it for her ruthless efficiency at stopping crimes with one well-placed bullet. When a massive call-out down by the Mexican Border reveals a terrorist cell and turns into a standoff, Angel’s youngest brother, the lost soul of her family, texts her that he is inside that barricaded house, and her orders are to shoot anything that moves.

Praise for Blair C. Babylon’s other books:
“This is why [Blair C. Babylon] is an author to watch!” ~ Booklist (starred review)
“I stumbled upon this series a few months ago while searching through e-books for the kindle. Out of all of the books I’ve read, this is by far the best. I have never been the type to read things in installments, but this is the first time I’ve faithfully awaited each new episode release. The story … is great, the characters are believable, and I can never really guess what is going to happen next. What more could you want in a series?” ~Amazon Review
“This series just takes my breath away. Breathless!!!! That’s how this book made me feel from beginning to end. It was one of those books I just couldn’t put down until some of my questions were answered. I was constantly on the edge of my seat anxiously hoping it would turn out the way I hoped. I had this same sense of anxious excitement from the very first book of this series and it has not left me yet. This is not your typical cliched novel, where you can tell practically from the first page what is going to happen. Oh no! This book has you waiting with bated breath to see what happens next. I cannot wait for the next book. Ms. Babylon is a genius, who proves every skeptic who says all novels are alike, wrong!” ~Amazon Review
***
USA Today Bestselling Author Blair C. Babylon is the nom de plume of an award-winning author who used to publish literary fiction under another name. Because professional reviews of her literary fiction usually included the caveat that there was too much plot, too many interesting twists, and too much sex, she decided to abandon all literary pretensions, let her freak flag fly, and write intense thrillers and naughty romantic suspense.

TODAY’S GUEST~ CHERLY KAYE TARDIF~ DIVINE SANCTUARY… with #giveaway

Divine Sanctuary banner

{Paranormal Mystery/Crime/Thriller/Romance}

3 Psychic Government Agents + 1 Skeptical Fire Chief = 3 DIVINE Mysteries

Today’s guest author is international bestselling suspense author Cheryl Kaye Tardif, whose newest release completes her Divine Trilogy. If you’re wondering what this trilogy is about, here’s part of the back cover of book 3, DIVINE SANCTUARY:

In the Divine trilogy finale, the heat is tripled when CFBI Agent Jasi McLellan must rescue Emily, the ghost girl that haunts her dreams; expose her own mother’s killer; and uncover a murderer that preys on the weak at Sanctuary, a controversial cult nestled in the woods near Mission, BC…

Most writers have a favorite character. Who is yours, and what inspired you to create this character?

Cheryl: Agent Jasmine (Jasi) McLellan—the main protagonist in my Divine Trilogy. She was born from my fascination with the mysterious gifts of psychics and my curiosity of “what would happen if…” Jasi is a covert government agent/pyro-psychic who, at the scent of smoke, can see into the mind of a serial arsonist/killer. I find her intriguing. Not only does she have this interesting gift, she has a flaw or weakness that comes with it. She also has a mysterious back-story that is being developed with the series, not to mention Jasi is being haunted by a “dead girl” in her bedroom closet.

Can you give us a taste of the themes explored in each of the Divine books?

Cheryl: DIVINE INTERVENTION, book 1, touches up issues of abuse, abortions, the foster system, and of course a serial arsonist/killer, and it takes you from Vancouver Island to the interior of BC. DIVINE JUSTICE, book 2, explores government officials and a deadly conspiracy, along with betrayal. It also brings Jasi one step closer to her mother’s killer. And DIVINE SANCTUARY is really about family and what makes a family. While investigating a murder at a cult, Jasi is led down various paths, and the two greatest mysteries (who killed her mother, and who is the ghost girl?) in Jasi’s life are finally resolved.

DIVINE SANCTUARY is your newest release. Where can readers pick up the ebook or paperback?

Cheryl: The ebook is available at most popular ebook retailers, including Amazon, Kobo Books, Smashwords, and iTunes (it’ll be soon available at B&N), and the paperback is available at Amazon or Createspace.

You have a contest on your Facebook page. Can you share that with us?

Divine Sanctuary 2About the Book:

There’s no place like home…

In the Divine trilogy finale, the heat is tripled when CFBI Agent Jasi McLellan must rescue Emily, the ghost girl that haunts her dreams; expose her own mother’s killer; and uncover a murderer that preys on the weak at Sanctuary, a controversial cult nestled in the woods near Mission, BC.

Something insidious lurks behind the safe haven of Sanctuary’s wrought iron gates. Led by the charismatic Father Jeremiah, the cult’s idyllic lifestyle seems perfect on the outside. But a lethal hunter is on the prowl, and in a carefully executed game of cat and mouse, the body count rises.

Along with Victim Empath Natassia Prushenko, Psychometric Empath Ben Roberts and Special Consultant Brandon Walsh, Jasi follows three trails of clues that lead to one terrifying conclusion: home is not always the safest place on earth.

For More Information

***

Book Excerpt:

Emily emerged from the shadows of Jasi’s closet. She drifted forward, her feet barely touching the floor. Her head, with its long blonde hair, lolled at an awkward―strangled―angle.
In this dream, an adult Jasi gasped in surprise.
The pink skipping rope noose was gone.
“You’re ready, Jasmine.”
“Ready for what?”
“To start looking for me.”
Jasi stood still, mesmerized by the bruises around the girl’s neck. They were fading before her eyes.
“The skipping rope is gone,” she said finally. “And your bruises are disappearing.”
“Yours will too,” Emily said.
“I don’t have any bruises.”
Emily led Jasi to the mirror. When she peered into it, her image shifted from a young Jasmine back to her adult reflection. One arm was bent in front of her, throbbing as though someone was squeezing it hard then letting it go. Yellowed bruises dotted her arm.
Emily tried to smile. “In time all your bruises will fade. But first, ya have to set things right.”
“And how do I do that? Oh, right, I have to find you.”
“Yes. Find me.” The dead girl floated backward.
“Wait!” Jasi cried out. “Why did your bruises fade?”
“Because you’re one step closer to finding me.”
“How? I don’t know anything more than I did before.”
Emily blended into the shadows. Before they swallowed her, she said, “You may think you aren’t any closer to finding me, but trust me, you are.” Darkness closed in around her.
Jasi took an anxious step forward. “Emily?”
Silence greeted her.
And a mystery.
She took a deep breath. “I’ll find you, Emily.”

ARE WE PLAYING GOD? THE NEW REALITY~ STEPHEN MARTINO

The New Reality banner

Are We Playing God?

 

With the emergence of such diseases as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), the threat of a deadly virus spreading throughout the world has made some recent headlines in the news. What is scary about the MERS virus is that medical science can neither treat those afflicted with this illness nor prevent its spread. In addition, with the globalization of the world, a virus such as this this one has ample opportunities to circumvent the globe in a matter of days.

 

Plus, with a mortality rate of 30% and its increasing incidence, national agencies such as the NIH and CDC have taken note to its potential threat. Fortunately, the MERS virus does not seem easily transmittable from one person to another. However, the mere nature of the virus make it unstable and prone to rapid mutations.

 

What if one of these chance mutations made the virus spread easier? What if another mutation increased its mortality rate? What if the virus began to spread like a California wildfire throughout the world?

 

This scenario is the foundation for The New Reality. Though fictional, the book has its roots based upon medical fact. While in training, I saw how researchers were using a virus that caused the simple cold and injected an “inactive” form of it into children during clinical trials involving gene therapy. Though this virus was supposed to be “safe”, it unfortunately lead directly to the deaths of some young patients and caused others to acquire a leukemia-like blood disease.

 

The question I posed to some of these researchers at the time was what if this theoretically “safe” virus somehow got released upon the environment? Because the virus caused the common cold, could it hypothetically spread unabated across the globe, and modern medicine could do nothing about it? I’ve been harboring these concerns for well over ten years before I even began writing The New Reality.

 

What I’ve learned in my medical career has not been how much modern medicine knows, but how much modern medicine doesn’t know. Is playing God with gene therapy harmless? Do we know and understand enough to safely continue clinical trials? Is what we are doing to our crops by manipulating their genes any different? Are we causing harm to the environment or worse yet to ourselves by creating genetically modified foods?

 

I certainly am not a pessimistic person or dwell on these issues. However, I wrote The New Reality to vent some of my fears. Though the book has this serious underdone, the novel is tempered with humor, history and mystery. I hope that everyone who reads it not only enjoys the story but also goes away thinking of about some of the pertienent issues written within it.

Stephen MartinoAbout the Author
Stephen Martino holds an M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and is a neurologist in New Jersey. When he is not working, he can be found with his five children doing homework or cheering them on at a soccer field, basketball court, or dance recital. Martino is a member of the Knights of Columbus, a Cub Scout den leader and is an active public speaker, helping to educate the local community and healthcare professionals on the signs, symptoms and treatment of stroke. THE NEW REALITY is his first novel.

For More Information


The New Reality 2About the Book:

Alex Pella, an acclaimed neuroscientist and the hero of the new medical thriller, THE NEW REALITY, finds himself racing across the globe to find a cure for a rapidly spreading illness threatening to end all of humanity. To combat this worldwide pandemic, Pella and his colleagues must use modern science in an attempt to decipher a code hidden by God within the original pages of the Bible.

THE NEW REALITY is the first book in a projected trilogy starring Alex Pella, created by New Jersey-based neurologist Stephen Martino. With his mixture of medicine, politics, biblical riddles, and futuristic science, Martino joins such masters of the medical thriller genre as Dan Brown, Michael Crichton, and Robin Cook.

Martino’s villain is a deadly retrovirus accidentally unleashed on the world in the year 2080, a time when no country is financially equipped to deal with such a disaster. It’s up to Pella and NIH expert Marissa Ambrosia to lead the search for a cure while fending off an elite foreign military unit sent to stop them. The scientists, guided by an ancient code concealed within the Hebrew text of the Old Testament, traverse ancient lands in an attempt to solve a biblical riddle and save humanity from total extinction.

Martino says he wrote THE NEW REALITY “more than just to entertain the reader. I really wanted to create a novel with substance, like (Brown’s) THE DA VINCI CODE or (Crichton’s) JURASSIC PARK. These books not only tell a fantastic story, but they also make the reader think.”

In THE NEW REALITY, Martino has included such hot-button contemporary topics as genetic manipulation, gene therapy, unprecedented economic debt, and the rise of big government, combining them with more esoteric subjects such as the Bible Code and the mysteries hidden in the Book of Revelation.

The Bible Code, Martino explains, does exist and was discovered by Dr. Eli Rips, a mathematician in quantum physics. The code has been confirmed by mathematicians at Yale, Harvard, and Hebrew University, as well as by peer-reviewed mathematical journals and the Pentagon. The code, Martino continues, is found in the original Hebrew version of the first five books of the Old Testament, called the Torah, and only in its untranslated, Hebrew form.

All of these elements, Martino maintains, separate his book from the pack. He calls THE NEW REALITY “issue-oriented fiction. There are real concerns facing society today that threaten both the sovereignty and prosperity of our future generations. Though fictional, my novel addresses some of these issues and predicts the potential consequences we face as a nation if they are not properly addressed today.”

DEAN KOONTZ

The City

#1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz is at the peak of his acclaimed powers with this major new novel.

The city changed my life and showed me that the world is deeply mysterious. I need to tell you about her and some terrible things and wonderful things and amazing things that happened . . . and how I am still haunted by them. Including one night when I died and woke and lived again.

Here is the riveting, soul-stirring story of Jonah Kirk, son of an exceptional singer, grandson of a formidable “piano man,” a musical prodigy beginning to explore his own gifts when he crosses a group of extremely dangerous people, with shattering consequences. Set in a more innocent time not so long ago, The City encompasses a lifetime but unfolds over three extraordinary, heart-racing years of tribulation and triumph, in which Jonah first grasps the electrifying power of music and art, of enduring friendship, of everyday heroes.

The unforgettable saga of a young man coming of age within a remarkable family, and a shimmering portrait of the world that shaped him, The City is a novel that speaks to everyone, a dazzling realization of the evergreen dreams we all share. Brilliantly illumined by magic dark and light, it’s a place where enchantment and malice entwine, courage and honor are found in the most unexpected quarters, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

RETRIBUTION

BY ANDERSON HARP

*From Amazon*

In the pitch-black cargo hole of the Pakistani airline freighter crossing the Atlantic, a wooden crate filled with levers for a weaving machine also had another object buried inside. If it makes it to its delivery point, an American city would become uninhabitable for a century. In this chilling thriller, Retribution is more than the story of a deep-cover mission to stop a terrorist with a core stolen from an Islamabad nuclear weapon. Here, the operative does much more to flush out the target than a hunt and chase. He becomes a carrier of a highly contagious strain of a deadly disease. In this oh so authentic story, author Andy Harp draws upon his experiences as a Marine who has served across the globe to create a uniquely real novel filled with breakneck thrills and plot twists. With action that flies from New York to London, from Peshawar deep into the mountains of the Hindu Kush, and from Islamabad to Chicago, Retribution weaves political conspiracy and a perilous, intelligence operation, hi-tech military technology and deadly current events, all with the crucible of a determined Jason Bourne like character in conflict with just as determined a killer, into a classic “mission” thriller that delivers the kind of nail-biting suspense, realism and a kicker surprise at the end that is in the style of Ludlum, and the best of Thor and Flynn. The story is engrossing, the hero is remarkable, and the personal cost he pays for both his survival and success changes the man.
