Back in Black By John Hartness
eBook (ePub): $4.99
In the second volume of The Black Knight Chronicles, vampire detectives Jimmy Black and Greg Knightwood investigate a series of assaults plaguing the alleys of Charlotte. Along the way they battle... More > trolls, bigotry, fairies, dragons and small minds on the way to a knock-down battle royal inside a steel cage. The boys find themselves fighting evil in alleys, trolls in bars, dragons in FairyLand, and trying to scrub the sparkle off after a battle with vicious Fae in the hall of the Fairy Queen. Yeah, really. All that and vampires, too. Praise for Volume 1: "The book was entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny from the first chapter where we're introduced to Jimmy in the clutches of a vampire hunter, until the end when the case is solved and Jimmy gets the girl. Sort of. " - L.C. Evans "But overall, this book was a fun, funny read. I could see it turned into a television series. It reminded me of a kind of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for men." - Julie Christensen.< Less
Deep Black By Swan Morrison
Paperback: $9.64
Prints in 3-5 business days
When retired accountant, detective fiction devotee and lifelong philanderer, Philip Ramsbottom, set up a private investigation agency, he had thought it wise to accept only straightforward tasks... More > – after all, his entire experience of detective work had been gained from reading crime novels. Philip had thus not expected his very first commission to draw him into the murky world of espionage. Elite special agents were required to save the British and NATO nuclear submarine fleets. Such a dangerous assignment, however, would have been more suitably allocated to people with relevant experience – in preference to Philip and his former lover, Rebecca Carter. The quest for the Sirens’ Song Configuration would have been much better pursued by the ultra-secret group of super-spies known as Deep Black. In another affectionate tribute to many classic storylines, Swan Morrison once again incorporates comedy, crime, espionage, romance, the paranormal and more into a complex and action packed adventure thriller.< Less
