“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.

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

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.

“A thoroughly enjoyable read. Readers will be waiting with anticipation for future volumes.” –Kirkus Reviews

When 17-year-old Reese first moved to the wealthy, lakeshore town of St. Clair over five years ago, she never expected someone like Charlotte Walters to take her under her wing. Charlotte is everything that Reese is not: rich, gorgeous, and carefree, living with her enigmatic older brother and her parents in a mansion at the top of the lake.

But when senior year starts, everything seems off. Reese notices that Charlotte’s older brother Aiden keeps coming back from college to hang around on weekends, stoic and grim. And Charlotte’s parents seem more distracted, almost lost. Meanwhile, Charlotte keeps insisting to Reese that nothing is wrong, and decides to host a Halloween party with the theme of “missing girls.”

That night, at the party, Charlotte goes missing.

Everyone who attended becomes an instant suspect, from Charlotte’s brother (who argued with Charlotte earlier that night), to Charlotte’s field hockey teammate (who wasn’t invited to the party in the first place), to Reese herself (who was the last person to see Charlotte alive, out near the lake).

With the clock ticking, Reese must unravel what happened to her best friend, and dig through the layers of secrets protecting people in St. Clair. Because now, being the quiet sidekick won’t cut it. And maybe only an outsider to St. Clair can truly confront all of the town’s dark mysteries.

ABOUT

L.C. Warman is the author of spooky young adult mysteries. She grew up in New England, in a town where real estate contracts stipulated that you couldn’t back out if you discovered your new place was haunted. She currently lives in a Michigan lakeside town with her husband and two dogs.

FULL REVIEW from Kirkus Reviews :

A high school senior attempts to unravel the truth behind her friend’s disappearance in Warman’s debut YA mystery, the first in a series. Reese’s best friend, Charlotte Walters, is “stunning, smart, charismatic, everything and anything that a seventeen-year-old wished to be.” She’s a beautiful, All-State field hockey player with a 4.0 GPA and a “talent for painting,” so she gets plenty of attention from her fellow classmates. Reese, meanwhile, is known primarily as Charlotte’s sidekick—something between an assistant and a confidante. Charlotte values her for her loyalty but doesn’t realize that Reese secretly resents her big house, rich parents, and army of admirers. When Charlotte decides to throw a Halloween party with a “ghosts of dead girls” theme, Reese helps her plan it—even going so far as to get Reese’s former crush, Riley Gallagher, to procure a beer keg. Reese quickly grows tired of Charlotte’s spooky antics, though, especially when she runs down to the lake to try to hear the ghost of local urban legend “Screaming Stella.” But when Reese arrives after her, she sees a boat rowing away from shore and can’t find Charlotte anywhere. Reese quickly summons help—the cops; Riley; Charlotte’s brother, Aiden—but it’s clear that Charlotte has disappeared. Everyone expects Reese to have some insight into what happened, but maybe she doesn’t know her friend as well as she thought. Throughout this novel, Warman’s taut prose is pitched perfectly for her subject matter, managing to make the high school drama feel high-stakes and creepy by turns. For example, here’s how she portrays Reese’s wonder at Charlotte’s huge trove of gossip: “part of me felt that the source of her knowledge was deeper, more mysterious, that Charlotte Walters knew everything because she was the town, or everything that St. Clair liked to think of itself as.” The author’s sharp senses of pacing and character make this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Readers will be waiting with anticipation for future volumes. A captivating teen mystery in a secretive lakeside town.

FIVE KNIVES welds the intensity of Jack Bauer’s “24” to the scorching heat of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST. 

“The author is a great talent.” — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer 

When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor. 

When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?  

Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.

Amazon Five Star reviews for The EmmaLee Affairs

– “… a great combination of romance, drama and mystery.”
– “…an absolute delight!”
– “…the perfect summer read!”
– “… beautifully written!”


Jonathan McKendry, the son of a local boatyard owner in a 1940’s northern Michigan resort town, is falling in love with Emily Compton, the daughter of a wealthy family who summer in Charlevoix and own the grand ship, the EmmaLee. As class differences and family pressures threaten any hope of the relationship succeeding, a shocking crime shatters their dreams of being together and throws them into a desperate search for a brutal killer.

In a parallel story in present-day, Sally Thomason, a descendant of the Compton’s, is thrilled to join the Charlevoix community in welcoming back the family’s old yacht, the EmmaLee after decades away. When she meets Alex Clark, the new owner of the ship, her life takes a drastic turn that threatens her current relationship and dredges up past memories of a tragic event that continues to haunt her. As Sally and Alex grow closer, they search for common ground to move beyond the past and build new lives together.

The EmmaLee Affairs plays out against a beautiful scenic backdrop and compelling historical context while exploring the deep emotions of tragic love and loss, and the chilling effects of evil that often lie just beneath the surface of our fragile lives.

Inside the Big Dig tunnel beneath the streets of Boston, a roof collapse kills an innocent motorist and suddenly questions are being asked: Was the construction shoddy? Did the unions cut corners? Were Boston’s politicians all paid off to look the other way?

Tom Pyle, owner of the huge construction firm that built the tunnel, knows he’s in trouble. So he hires a rough-and-tumble, no-nonsense manager in Jack Dunne to come in and try to save the company.

The threads Dunne begins to pull all seem to lead right back to Pyle’s own exclusive Cape Cod oceanfront neighborhood, a place called Serpent Point. Living there, in gated luxury, are several who had some kind of role in the Big Dig project: the famous senator gearing up for his own presidential run; a wealthy retired musician and impresario with strange tastes; and the head of one of New England’s most powerful crime families whose main concern is keeping tabs on his own sixteen-year-old daughter. And is Dunne trying to save the company, or take it over for himself?

Author Caleb Clarke has created a story for our time, and it’s located on Serpent Point.

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.

FIVE KNIVES welds the intensity of Jack Bauer’s “24” to the scorching heat of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST. 

“The author is a great talent.” — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer 

When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor. 

When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?  

Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.

Al Nadir has transformed terrorism. Through a sophisticated, corporate approach, they dominate global terror. The leader, Al Douri, has created an infiltrating and influential world power with vast destructive potential. His second in command, Sabena Sanantoni, is an evil and remarkable force. Her sadistic habits and savage behavior have coined her The Slayer. Even her closest allies cannot predict her next cruel move. But nobody doubts her status.

Sabena Sanantoni is the most dangerous woman in the world.

MI6 operative, Matthew Kinley, has dedicated his life to his country. But now his government has asked for a level of commitment that even he struggles to grasp. As a double agent, his duty is to walk the thin line between loyalty and betrayal. Kinley is thrown into a world of grey. The dark hole of Al Nadir pulls him one way and the bright torch of patriotism pulls him the other.

Can he walk the line without losing his soul?

Kinley’s brother in arms, Sam Noor, must also face the demands of British Intelligence. Both men have left their families at home, ignorant to their dangerous career path. They live in the space between two worlds. One is the domestic, loving home, and the other is the harsh and fierce duty of their jobs. But as the reality of Al Nadir infiltrates into the lives of UK citizens, these worlds gradually combine. When those they love are in danger, Sam and Kinley must face the ultimate question.

What sacrifices will they make to protect their country?

In a hidden London location, a potentially terrible, possibly brilliant, yet infinitely risky operation is being formulated. An operation to bring down Al Nadir. It’s a mission shared only by the hushed voices of four men. The future is in their hands, holding a plan that will change UK history forever. But the multiple, shifting factors needed for success are flaky and volatile.

Can some cosmic force shift the balance in their favour? Or will their good intentions only knock Earth into further darkness?

In a blackening world, it is the one beacon of hope: Operation Snowdrop.

Now Stephen has uncovered the group’s latest underground project: forcing convicted killers to fight to the death for the audience of high-rollers paying big bucks to gamble on the outcome.

But before Stephen can uncover their identities, they shoot him and leave him to die—or so they think. Stephen survives, and now he’s even more obsessed with exposing the group. And being “dead” is the perfect cover for digging deeper and infiltrating the show.

The only person who knows everything is Julia Travers. She’ll do anything to keep Stephen safe, even if that means sabotaging his undercover investigation. In the second book of the Quintana Adventures, Stephen suffers deception, betrayal, and brutal attacks but never wavers in his determination to expose the most insane reality show ever created.

A summer heatwave.

A cruel game.

An ice-cold heart.

You are told to forget everything you think you know about serial killers. Forget the films you’ve watched, the TV documentaries you’ve pored over, every killer thriller you’ve ever read. Wipe your mind. Begin again.

You are told to look around you. At that weird neighbor you had a bad feeling about, or the guy who passes your sitting-room window at the same time every day and always slips a sideways glance through the window, or maybe the one who cuts you up at the junction and glares like it’s your fault.

You probably wouldn’t call any one of those a killer just based on that stuff. Killer’s a harsh word and a cruel accusation and thankfully not many bear the accolade. But you are told you’d better be ready to believe that one of them might. Because it’ll never be who you think it is.

Detective Cass Fletcher knows all this. She knows never to stereotype the criminal mind, knows how foolish that would be. So why is it then that despite her experience and training, she feels so utterly unprepared to sit across the table from the first serial killer she’s ever looked directly in the eye?

NOT THE TYPE is a standalone novella based on the Hoskins & Fletcher crime series

A Death In The Afternoon – The Southermost Mystery Series

At twenty-four years old, I was dying a slow and painful death.

My tombstone would read:

Here lies Mallory Hemingway. Gone Too Soon. Died of Boredom.

I scrolled past the government jobs, the work from home jobs, and the delivery jobs hoping to find that gem that stood out, when suddenly I sat straight up, the back of my chair bouncing back and forth like an overzealous jack in the box.

Wanted: Night-time Caretaker for Hemingway Home in Key West, FL.

Responsibilities: Live on-site for security purposes, locking gates, ensuring house is properly secured, tending to the many cats that live on the property, and being a point of contact for police or emergency personnel if needed.

Salary: $25,000 a year. Room and board included.

Ok, so the salary wasn’t much, but it was just me. And if I wasn’t paying for room and board, then how much money did I really need?

I googled Key West taking in the size of the island, the culture that oozed personality, and the tight, narrow streets that cut through the main areas.  I wouldn’t need a car to navigate such a tiny place, so I could sell mine and use the money to help me move. Real estate there was astronomical, so not having to pay for a place to stay would give me the room in my budget that I needed in order to write during the day.

It didn’t seem like they’d need me to do much, so I was basically being paid to sleep. I could get up early and write every morning, just like Hemingway did. Surely, my last name and distant relative status would be a mark in my favor.

My hand hovered over the receiver of the Harmony Times phone, when I stopped cold. What was I doing? I couldn’t break up with Andrew, leave my parents, and move to the southernmost point of the United States, could I?

Find out if she will in the newest cozy mystery sensation, A Death In The Afternoon.

Review from Amazon:

‘Steve Higgs has yet again struck gold with his new heroine, Patricia Fisher. She’s over 50, feisty and oh so clever at solving murders. This first book has so many twists, turns and red herrings the reader has to pay close attention to catch all the clues. My only disappointment with this read, is having to wait until the first of August to purchase Book 2.’

‘Love Steve Higgs’ books and this new series did not disappoint. Patricia started out as a betrayed wife and moved into a strong, smart woman role. I love her and her side kicks already and this is only the first book. Can’t get enough of Steve’s stories and wait anxiously for the next to publish in all of his series.’

A Death In The Afternoon – The Southermost Mystery Series

At twenty-four years old, I was dying a slow and painful death.

My tombstone would read:

Here lies Mallory Hemingway. Gone Too Soon. Died of Boredom.

I scrolled past the government jobs, the work from home jobs, and the delivery jobs hoping to find that gem that stood out, when suddenly I sat straight up, the back of my chair bouncing back and forth like an overzealous jack in the box.

Wanted: Night-time Caretaker for Hemingway Home in Key West, FL.

Responsibilities: Live on-site for security purposes, locking gates, ensuring house is properly secured, tending to the many cats that live on the property, and being a point of contact for police or emergency personnel if needed.

Salary: $25,000 a year. Room and board included.

Ok, so the salary wasn’t much, but it was just me. And if I wasn’t paying for room and board, then how much money did I really need?

I googled Key West taking in the size of the island, the culture that oozed personality, and the tight, narrow streets that cut through the main areas.  I wouldn’t need a car to navigate such a tiny place, so I could sell mine and use the money to help me move. Real estate there was astronomical, so not having to pay for a place to stay would give me the room in my budget that I needed in order to write during the day.

It didn’t seem like they’d need me to do much, so I was basically being paid to sleep. I could get up early and write every morning, just like Hemingway did. Surely, my last name and distant relative status would be a mark in my favor.

My hand hovered over the receiver of the Harmony Times phone, when I stopped cold. What was I doing? I couldn’t break up with Andrew, leave my parents, and move to the southernmost point of the United States, could I?

Find out if she will in the newest cozy mystery sensation, A Death In The Afternoon.

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.

In the 1920s, a woman’s place was in the home, or in supporting roles in the workforce, or, if you’re 21-year-old Mia Angela Scalisi, on stage inside glamorous supper clubs and theater stages, living the high-life with the world at your fingertips.

It is definitely not calling the shots for a blossoming bootlegging operation, or ordering hits on your enemies. That is, unless, you’re Mia Angela Scalisi…and tragedy forces you into your biggest, most challenging role yet: Mafia princess.

Content to turn a blind-eye to big brother Nick’s criminal dealings, Mia, an orphan and former gambling-hall hustler, loves fancy clothes, loud parties, high-stakes poker games, and New York Sours with family friends Al Capone and Johnny Torrio. She carries big dreams of fame and fortune, and gracing the silver screens as the Italian Lillian Gish.

Her plans never included bloody retribution.

A Death In The Afternoon – The Southermost Mystery Series

At twenty-four years old, I was dying a slow and painful death.

My tombstone would read:

Here lies Mallory Hemingway. Gone Too Soon. Died of Boredom.

I scrolled past the government jobs, the work from home jobs, and the delivery jobs hoping to find that gem that stood out, when suddenly I sat straight up, the back of my chair bouncing back and forth like an overzealous jack in the box.

Wanted: Night-time Caretaker for Hemingway Home in Key West, FL.

Responsibilities: Live on-site for security purposes, locking gates, ensuring house is properly secured, tending to the many cats that live on the property, and being a point of contact for police or emergency personnel if needed.

Salary: $25,000 a year. Room and board included.

Ok, so the salary wasn’t much, but it was just me. And if I wasn’t paying for room and board, then how much money did I really need?

I googled Key West taking in the size of the island, the culture that oozed personality, and the tight, narrow streets that cut through the main areas.  I wouldn’t need a car to navigate such a tiny place, so I could sell mine and use the money to help me move. Real estate there was astronomical, so not having to pay for a place to stay would give me the room in my budget that I needed in order to write during the day.

It didn’t seem like they’d need me to do much, so I was basically being paid to sleep. I could get up early and write every morning, just like Hemingway did. Surely, my last name and distant relative status would be a mark in my favor.

My hand hovered over the receiver of the Harmony Times phone, when I stopped cold. What was I doing? I couldn’t break up with Andrew, leave my parents, and move to the southernmost point of the United States, could I?

Find out if she will in the newest cozy mystery sensation, A Death In The Afternoon.

Something creepy happened on that abandoned stretch of desert highway.


When Alex Thompson is pulled over by a squad car in the middle of nowhere, the police officer acts downright bizarre. She’s positive something’s not right about the whole situation.

Years later, a mass grave is discovered in that same area, and she knows she came close to being one of the victims. So why did the killer let her go?

Cody Oliver is a small-town detective. His department can’t handle a case this huge. When a mysterious woman, Alex, appears from the past, it stirs something in him.

Could a chance encounter a million years ago have been that important? Could a short, random meeting he’d dismissed as soon as it ended be the key to stopping a serial killer?

Give me a “hell yeah” and pick up this book with one click, because if Cody and Alex can’t unravel this demented mystery, the desert will continue to fill up with bodies.

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.
