Trophies by David Evans

 

13043797_695024583972509_2046633383293516800_nTROPHIES It is the year 2000. The voice. DI Colin Strong is convinced he’s heard that voice before. Nearly 25 years ago, the tape of Wearside Jack taunted West Yorkshire Police. His suspect, being questioned on suspicion of handling stolen goods, fits the profile. A known burglar, an associate of the suspect, is found murdered and a metal case is discovered at the scene. This indicates that another series of sexual assaults on women over the previous twenty years has gone unconnected, the contents possible trophies. Strong’s close friend, journalist Bob Souter, takes up a senior position on the Yorkshire Post newspaper. With emotions still raw surrounding the flawed enquiry into the Yorkshire Ripper, Strong begins an awkward alliance with Souter to probe areas he feels unable to explore. The first item from the box is identified as belonging to an assault victim whose case was investigated by Strong’s boss. Tensions run high when Souter pens a front-page story which speculates on a find that casts doubt over the conviction of her attacker. Strong is convinced the trophy case holds the key to the burglar’s murder. As the murder suspects disappear, just who is the shadowy character inciting fear and panic amongst those he encounters? The more Strong uncovers about his Wearside Jack suspect, the more convinced he is of his guilt – and he has a murderer to find. But Souter is hungry for a story. Who will discover the truth first and will their friendship remain intact?

The Victim by Eric Matheny

#TheVirtualBookcase
The Victim Book CoverEric Matheny is a criminal defense attorney who enjoys writing crime fiction, drawing from his experience working in the legal system. He has handled everything from DUI to murder. His latest novel The Victim was released on August 13, 2015, published by Zharmae.

If you are a fan of John Grisham, David Baldacci, and Harlan Coben, The Victim may be your kind of novel.

The Victim is a tense, fast-paced, legal thriller/psychological suspense novel that centers around a young defense attorney whose horrifying misdeed from his college days comes back to haunt him.

Synopsis:

Anton Mackey is a man with everything. At least, he seems to be on the surface. He has a rising career as a private attorney, a lovely wife, a beautiful daughter; he and his family live in an idyllic neighborhood that most people dream about. Sure, there are troubles that plague this family, the same as any other, but all in all things are looking up. Life is good, and the future is better.

Except Anton has a past, too, and something has been looming, bearing down on him from that history, just waiting for the chance to strike. Soon, everything will change, and the life he’s struggled so hard to build will come crashing down around him.

And the worst part of it all: Anton Mackey has no one to blame but himself.

Praise for The Victim:

Anne Rothman-Hicks and Kenneth Hicks have been married for a little over forty years and have produced about twenty books and exactly three children so far. At press-time, they still love their children more.
Their most recent novels have been set in New York City, where they have lived for most of their married lives. Anne is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College where, in nineteen sixty-nine, as the fabled Sixties were drawing to a close, she met Ken, who was a student at Haverford College. They don’t like to admit that they met at a college mixer, but there it is!

Together their books include Theft of the Shroud, a novel; Starfinder, a non-fiction book about the stars for children; a series of books on individual names for children (for example Michael’s Book, Elizabeth’s Book, John’s Book, Jennifer’s Book, David’s Book, Amy’s Book); and, most recently, Kate and the Kid, Mind Me, Milady, and Praise Her, Praise Diana, three adult novels, and a middle reader/tween novel, Things Are Not What They Seem.

Ken and Anne have a website with the address set out below. There they have links to some of their books and display images that they hope will be used in future efforts. In case you were wondering about the website address, “R” is for Rothman, “H” is for Hicks, and 71 is the year of their marriage. No secret codes or numerology anywhere. Sorry.

High Crimes by David Lawlor

HIGH CRIMES HIRES(1)In Dublin, Ireland, deadly consequences and a rush for vengeance — for one stalker, five victims, and an ex-priest whose sins are catching up with him fast.

Fifteen storeys in the air, crane operator Tommy Reynolds is up to more than shifting concrete and steel on a building site. He has his eagle eye on the apartments opposite. Tommy doesn’t just watch his victims; he films and he follows, and he listens, too. Soon he’s worming his way into their lives… but his victims, busy with their own troubles, don’t realise what he’s doing.

Maggie Preston’s trouble comes with the reappearance of Cathal Mac Liam, the serial sex abuser who destroyed her childhood and blighted her life. The ex-priest’s actions soon cause heartache for Tommy’s other victims, too… but they’re not going to take it anymore.

Read High Crimes, the tale of two ruthless predators whose victims fight back — and you’ll always wonder: Who’s watching who, and what would you do?
