Internationally-bestselling author Michaelbrent Collings 

brings you a mystery unlike any you’ve ever read before…

Detective Evan White knows this: his wife is dead, and he will do anything to find who killed her.

“CRIME SEEN by Michaelbrent Collings is one of those rare books that deserves more than five stars.” 

– Top of the Heap Reviews

So when a stranger calls and says he has information, Evan is more than interested. But within moments of meeting the stranger, it is clear that this may be not merely someone who knows about the killing… he may well be the killer.

“It’s rare to find an ending to a novel that is clever, thought-provoking and surprising, yet here Collings nails all three….” 

– Ravenous Reads

Now Evan and his partner, Angela Listings, are after the killer. A madman who slaughters at a whim. A murderer bent on destroying everything and everyone Evan loves.

“With an ending that will keep you guessing until the last chapter, I would definitely recommend this book…” 

– Horror Drive-In

But the deeper Evan gets into his investigation, the more he begins to question whether he really wants answers. Because the deeper he digs, the more it seems like the man he is hunting… may already be dead.

GET MY BOOK

Two Englishmen have dreams of setting up a business in the sun, but trouble follows them.

Their first brush with death came at Bangkok’s airport on Nick’s first day in the Kingdom.

Action, laughs, romance and tears follow as the story moves at a breathtaking pace. 

Violence and tender moments collide as the gullible pair meet a dodgy ship’s engineer, two lovely French girls more interested in dogs than romance, and a tall Welsh man, with a very chequered drug background who leads them all into more trouble. The last person they need to encounter is a lesbian newspaper reporter with a deadly family secret. 

The tale unfolds into an action-packed finale.

“I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry, 

all very worrying.” Janet Brookman

“How can anybody have so many 

worries on a paradise beach?” Tim Mellish

GET MY SAMPLE

A new monster is here to keep you up at night. In the tradition of The Silence of the Lambs comes a killer with an appetite.

Harry Lightman, known as the Daylesford Devil by the press and dubbed “Lucifer” by the locals, has been sitting in a prison cell for the best part of 20 years, sentenced to life imprisonment for the torture and murder of 14 women. Each one had been preyed upon by a monster that fed on the flesh of his victims, the peaceful country towns reeling from the terror that had stalked their communities. Now, on the eve of the first victim’s 20-year anniversary, a new killer has taken up where the Devil left off, his victims dying in the same horrific circumstances as his predecessor’s, the trademark signature announcing its horrific return with bloody consequences. But is it really a new killer or does Lucifer have the perfect alibi?

The authorities have no leads, no clues and no time as they enlist the help of the original police officer, Jim Lawson, now a respected and sought-after psychiatrist, who felled the devil the first time. Has Lucifer truly returned, killing from behind the walls, or is another vying for his title? Only Jim can face the devil and hope to learn his secret. Together with the young and beautiful police constable, Stephanie Connor, Jim is fighting the devil, the clock and the hierarchy, to piece together the clues and end the killing before another fall’s victim.

But little did Oddy know, TONIGHT was going to be different . . .  because after this tale, things were NEVER going to be the same for him again!

The NAYNAB have been around for millennia. Most people see them as regular trees. But some know that the NAYNAB hold many SECRETS. Fewer still know that the NAYNAB may very well be at the heart of the most TERRIFYING SECRET of them all — and of an age-old EVIL which will stop at nothing until it takes over the WORLD . . .


The GHOSTS IN THE TREES is a short story and the first book in the SHADOWS, TREES & ODD MYSTERIES series that follows the MYSTERIOUS myths, ODD occurrences and TERRIFYING tales that revolve around the little-known Naynab trees.
