“If Looks Could Kill”
by GARY KITTLE

In the War on Terror, the mirror just became a secret weapon.

A man-made plague that blights, disfigures and rots every inch of a woman’s flesh.
Available in PDF, MOBI, and ePub

Set in the very near future, Britain has suffered a massive biological terrorist attack. The result is a disease that rivals the Plague in its mercilessness. The symptoms are easy to spot. They cover every inch of skin: disfiguring, blighting and rotting with shocking rapacity. But this is a disease custom-made to cause the greatest amount of suffering and misery for the British people. Victims seldom die quickly, and the contagion, christened ‘Foedus’ by the media, only affects women. Forced to hide their ravaged faces, the women of Britain adopt the burqa, are forced to stay at home for ‘reasons of hygiene’ and can only visit public places with a male escort. The radical Jihadists are not just triumphing in the War on Terror, they’re having fun doing it. So when Devina, an immigrant, falls into the hands of a gang of ambitious petty criminals, it is clear that her apparent immunity to Foedus is potentially worth a fortune to anyone searching for a cure. But the State doesn’t want to pay millions for something that might be a hoax, so rookie field agent Dan Rhodes is thrown the impossible task of tracking down the kidnappers before their ransom deadline expires. Despite his inexperience Dan realises that there is much more going on than he has been told. His boss, Trevor Jenkins, has already hinted he is acting largely on his own initiative and that Dan’s mission is ‘off the books’. But what else could Jenkins want with the girl except to hand her over to the medical team waiting in a secret lab? Richard Simmons is very much the leader of the kidnappers, but are his two sidekicks as loyal as they pretend? And just how badly has Foedus affected the mental health of his wife, Fiona? In a race against the clock, true identities and motives are exposed; and the truth is spotlighted against a backdrop of veiled faces and rabid prejudice. In the War on Terror, the mirror has become a secret weapon.

Lure of the Riptide by Steve Turnbull

Maliha knew she should just walk away.

She glanced along the Pondicherry beach. The waves rolled in on the ebbing tide without the slightest concern for the naked body they had deposited on the sand. A cluster of fishing boats bobbed in the distance, perhaps half a mile out, just silhouettes against the brightness of the early morning sun.

She turned inland to see if anyone was watching her. Beyond the breakwater, the early morning life of White Town moved to and fro along the roads she could not see. The French-looking seaside houses stretched along the front.

But there was no one close to her. No one to see the woman’s body lying face-down in the sand, her straight black hair a bedraggled halo and the darker tone of her skin marking her as a native, just like Maliha herself. Native but a stranger in the land of her parents.

She considered the possibility of leaving the woman to the crabs and gulls, but it was no more than a thought.

There was a gash in the skin, about three inches long, located halfway between the ribs and the rise of her buttocks. The sea had cleaned the deep wound and its edges were well-defined. It looked to be the work of a broad-bladed knife or perhaps a sabre. She moved closer.

Her Grandmother did not have to be present for Maliha to hear her bitter words. Will you dishonour your dead mother?

It was the last day of her mother’s funeral rites. The only day Maliha was able to take part since she had arrived too late to carry out the rites herself. A distant female relative she only vaguely recognised had been given the duty since Maliha’s Aunt Savitha was not permitted.

For a year after performing the rituals a person could not be involved in a wedding, and Maliha’s cousin was due to be married in a few months. They would not have cared if Maliha was tainted. She was only a half-breed and an excuse not to invite her would have been the perfect solution.

Maliha moved around to the woman’s feet. Her skin was not bloated so she had not been in the water very long. The soles of her feet were not heavily calloused which meant she was not of the lowest castes. She was not completely devoid of adornment, there was a thin chain around her ankle. Maliha bent over awkwardly in her corset and layers of dress, leaning on her stick, she peered at the links.

They looked as if they might be silver. It was not the finest work but good nonetheless. It was not cheap.

Maliha stood up straight and stretched her back, settling the corset back into position. Refusing to wear a sari or salwar was her rebellion against her Grandmother. It did not really amount to very much but after years at Roedean School, Maliha still felt more comfortable in the defensive shield of so many layers rather than the revealing looseness of Indian dress.

Perhaps she had been killed for her dowry. Maliha could not see her face but her skin said she could not be much older than Maliha, if at all. If she was a bride with a decent dowry it would not be at all surprising. Women had no value beyond their bride price and their ability to produce healthy male heirs. Even the simplest logic could reveal the long term unworkability of that viewpoint.

With both her parents killed in the fire, and her father holding a patent on a number of devices as well as being well paid by the British Government, Maliha herself would be worth a considerable sum—sufficient fortune to be independent—as long as the legalities could be worked out. Grandmother was satisfied by this because it meant that it should be easy enough to dispose of. She wanted nothing more than to get such a headstrong, disobedient, invalid and, worst of all, educated girl out of her life.

There was no bruising, at least not where Maliha could see.

Settling her feet in the sand, Maliha used her walking stick to move the woman’s hair away from her face. As young as Maliha. Pretty.

The question was now, what should be done?

The remains of her father’s body were already on their way back to England by the time she arrived. They had gone by sea since there was no hurry, his ashes were not going to rot during the journey. She would visit his memorial one day.

But if she reported the body to the authorities her Grandmother would declare her to be tainted and unable to join the funeral rites. It was not that Maliha was particularly religious, her years in England had put paid to that, but she did not want to give Grandmother the satisfaction of denying Maliha that final chance to say goodbye.

On the other hand, how could she deny this woman her proper end, and allow her spirit to move on to its next life with the proper rituals of her own family, simply because Maliha herself wanted that choice?

The sea boomed behind her, gulls screamed above, and the world continued. The world did not care that another woman had been robbed of her life.

But Maliha cared, even if it was not in her best interests, and even though she knew she would receive no thanks for it. It never was, and she never did.

<<>>

Maliha leaned on her walking stick and watched from the edge of the promenade as the two untouchables lifted the woman’s body on to a wooden cart and covered it with an old blanket. They proceeded to drag the cart laboriously up the beach. Its thin wheels cut into the sand.

Once they had mounted the ramp on to the boulevard Maliha led the way. The dead girl had most likely come from Black Town—that part of Pondicherry reserved for the wealthier Indians, just across the ditch from the European colonials.

The un-British architecture fascinated Maliha, as did the people themselves. Pondicherry had been acquired by the French East India Company as part of the effort to rival the British. Unfortunately, they had not only been late to the party—all the best spoils had already gone to the British and Dutch—but they were terrible businessmen. The French traders had gone to the wall long before their British equivalent had been disbanded. All efforts to revive the company failed.

But they left behind a part of India that would be forever France.

Doctor Rowena Halley needs a job. But it may cost her more than she’s bargained for. During one of the worst years on record in the academic job market, newly-minted PhD Rowena Halley has, against all odds, gotten a job. For one semester. At poverty wages. In New Jersey. But with so many of her fellow PhDs bagging groceries-or worse-instead of teaching Russian, this is the best chance she has. New jobs come with a lot of stress, everyone knows that. But Rowena has more problems than just learning her way around a new campus and convincing all these Yankees that yes, she really is from Georgia. Tensions in the department are high, her family wants to know when she’s going to get a decent job and a decent man and her ex-boyfriend is as usual in trouble with the Russian government. It’s when students start coming to her for help that she really gets into trouble, though. Rowena got where she is because she wants to help people and save the world, but if she’s not careful, her idealism may get her killed. Witty and suspenseful in the vein of the Stephanie Plum novels, Campus Confidential is an insider’s look at the gritty underbelly of academia, where the struggles are so vicious because the stakes are so small.

All of them. At the same time.
If it works, they’ll be rich. And who knows – maybe even alive.

Yeah, but they’re all dead.
Find out how.

A large creepy estate, mysterious twin brothers, family secrets, a diabolical invention known as the bone machine, and a young girl who is not at all human.

A sudden infestation of ghastly creatures into their foreboding plantation home causes them to hire a lethiferist, a killer of supernatural monsters. The problem is that newly-hired Rue, who like all her kind was born without a heart, is a supernatural monster. She’s also too short, too young, and too compassionate for the job. Compassionate toward her fellow monsters, that is; not toward humans…on whom she occasionally feeds.

“Once again, Stephen Bentley writes a compelling and thrilling story, with his latest novella, Dilemma. The story builds on Book One in this series.

Note to Reader: Missing Girl is a companion novella to the Missing Girl Series. The full-length novel, 60 Days (Missing Girl Series – Book 1) is now available on Amazon.com

In life, my name was Sophia Lucia Cruz. In death, it is simply missing girls. Not even singular, but plural, as if there was never one single part of me that was unique or separate from all the other girls that were buried in that harsh Mexican dirt; victims of circumstance, irrevocable choices, and just plain bad luck. If I still had the capacity to cry, I would, because it is that sad and tragic. But, when the knife slid deep into my belly and the blood gurgled at the base of my throat, I knew that tears wouldn’t save me, and they won’t change my story now. . .

Sophia Cruz was an average 17-year-old girl from Mission Valley, until the day she had a knife put to her stomach and fear inserted into her heart. Some may have called it stupidity. She called it a necessary sacrifice. Why else would she leave everything behind and walk arm in arm with the devil into the world of sex trafficking and human imprisonment? This is Sophia’s story. She wants you to know who she was before that day. Before she became just another missing girl.

Missing Girl is a powerful and provocative story that explores the depths of familial love, and the horrors of the human trafficking epidemic that plagues our global community. Sophia’s story is a fictional account of what so many real-life women and children experience every single moment of their lives when they are forced into sexual slavery and imprisonment.

Today, a young woman has gone missing under suspicious circumstances. In a desperate race against time, Tess storms through the city to investigate only to uncover the shocking truth – the woman has been snatched by a vicious gang that will bury anyone who gets in its way.

Outgunned, outnumbered, and out of options, Tess plunges into a life-or-death struggle to rescue the woman. But with the clock ticking and the body count rising, will she discover that victory sometimes comes at a price too terrifying to pay?

More about Beyond Dead by Jordaina Sydney Robinson

You thought life was hard? You should try being dead!

Death is not what Bridget Sway expected. Not at all.

There are no harp-playing cherubs. There are no cloud cars. There aren’t even any pearly gates to walk through.

Death is a fashion disaster of a uniform and a job that doesn’t pay. It’s a heinous communal living situation with housemates who have no concept of privacy or personal space. It’s a handsome parole officer who is a stickler for rules that no one has bothered to explain. And it’s a dead ghost stuffed into her locker.

Yeah. That’s what death is.

As the prime suspect, Bridget needs to figure out who the murderer is before she’s arrested. Or before she becomes the next dead body stuffed in her locker.

If you like sassy heroines who break all the rules, laugh out loud humour and whodunnits that keep you guessing until the very end, then take a walk on The Other Side with Bridget Sway.

Dying for a Vacation by Donna Huston Murray

Who could refuse a two-week stay in a chateau perched on the edge of the Mediterranean? Certainly not Richard, who was fed up to his easel with the damp London weather. Babysitting a treasure-filled museum while his old Sorbonne roommate honeymooned in Spain was the least he could do. The vandals who’d been plaguing the chateau wouldn’t dare return, the repairmen Tom hired would be completely trustworthy, and “murder” was only found in something by Agatha Christie. Richard might even meet a woman, someone capable of surprising him like never before. He should go. He really should. He was dying for a vacation.

They beat him.

They broke him.

They stabbed him.

They murdered him.

If they did that to your loved one, would you forgive them? Or would you get Square?

Tony Green was recently released having served a four-year prison sentence for murder. With the support of a loving fiancée, he attempts to prevent the next generation from following in his own footsteps. But old habits die hard, and the allure of the underworld is hard to resist.

Although Tony may be paying back his debt to society, he is about to discover other debts are not so easily repaid.

From the writer who brought you the Blood Memory series and Z-Minus comes this tale of revenge, retribution, and regret. If you were denied justice would you dispense your own?
