motorboat

The mysterious disappearance of media mogul Connie Ross during a party on her yacht exposes a web of dark and twisted secrets. Jimmy Frail, Chief of Detectives, suspecting foul play and the potential media circus, partners a most unlikely pair of detectives. Gigi Mirabelli, a missing persons’ officer, is recalled early from maternity leave to work with Harry Burns, a brilliant, but tormented homicide detective looking to restart his sidelined career. Suspecting murder, but unable to prove it, Mirabelli and Burns must first find a way to work together before they can hope to solve this perplexing crime. They first develop a working partnership of opposites and then skillfully sift through the evidence; all while walking the political and media tightrope in this high profile case.

PANDORA’S PROPHECY
BY JULIE RYAN

‘Pandora’s Prophecy’ is the third in the Greek Island mystery series but can be read as a standalone although some characters from the previous books do make an appearance.
Lisa and Mark are going through a rough patch, Vicky is seventeen and has just discovered that the man she thought was her father really isn’t, Ruth is getting over her husband’s betrayal after nearly twenty-five years of marriage. On the surface they have nothing in common except that they are all staying in the same hotel on a Greek Island. As they each come into contact with the mysterious Pandora, their lives will change forever. Bodies begin to pile up as a serial killer is on the loose who might just be targeting the hotel. The Island’s Police Chief, Christos Pavlides, tries to solve the puzzle but he has problems of his own to resolve. It seems that the local celebrity author is the one who holds the key.

Connected by Simon Denman

Two apparent suicides, a country apart, drive a physicist and a college student to seek answers. But what they find sucks them deep into dangerous mind-altering technology that could change the world.
 connected_largeCONNECTED is a speculative fiction thriller with touches of science and philosophy, which reached No.1 in Amazon UK’s Bestseller lists for both Thrillers and Science Fiction within 5 days of release.
Beginning with the funeral of a renowned classical violinist in a sleepy rural hamlet in the Lake District, a former theoretical physicist tries to make sense of his brother’s suicide. Across the country, a university student, enjoying the unexpected attentions of an enigmatic seductress, is disturbed when his best friend falls to his death from the thirteenth floor of a neighbouring campus tower block.
As each tries to unravel the mystery behind the apparent suicides, they are drawn into an obsessive search for a computer-generated fractal video sequence, with startling effects on human consciousness, and which might just pave the way for discovery of the ultimate Theory of Everything.
However, they are not the only ones to have seen the potential of this mind-altering video, and soon find themselves in a desperate race against time with gangsters from the shadowy worlds of sex, drugs, cyber-crime, and massively multi-player on-line gaming.

Simon05cropAuthor Bio:
Born in Eastbourne, to retired parents, Simon Denman grew up alternately on the beaches of a succession of English seaside towns, and in the historic, if somewhat austere boarding school of Christ’s Hospital in Horsham, Sussex.
After graduating from the University of Essex with a degree in Electronic Engineering, he has spent longer than he likes to admit in the IT networking, communications, and Internet security industries, gradually moving from technical to marketing and management roles. During this time, he moved from the UK to Paris, back to the UK, over to Munich, across to the French Riviera, and finally back to England.
Far more importantly during this period, he was blessed with two beautiful and talented daughters, now at University themselves, and, in remarriage, the love of the most wonderful woman for whom a man could wish.
Following the publication and unexpected success of his first novel,”Connected” and, in the same year, the births of twins, he has recently moved to Cornwall with his wife and babies, where he is now working on a new novel.
While he no longer plays rugby, Simon is a moderately accomplished player of Jazz and classical trumpet, which he blows enthusiastically with any band or group that’ll have him. Any remaining time is spent reading and writing.

Sleeping Dogs by Brid Wade

New Sleeping Dogs by Brid Wade - 200The death of a Judge from a gunshot wound makes headline news. When suicide is ruled out, the ‘who’ and ‘why’ of the crime is the burning question. Previously targeted by the media over a colourful episode in his personal life, the Judge’s death throws up the possibility of a new scandal the State is anxious to contain. The investigation must be low key and discreet. Matt Costello, renowned and respected private investigator, is nominated for the job.

Initial enquiries take Matt to the home of the registered owner of the murder weapon, Billy Hannan, but Billy isn’t around. In fact, nobody has seen Billy for three years – since he disappeared one night on his way home from the local pub. Left behind is Nan, his intended bride, his daughter, Kate, and a large house standing on six hundred acres of prime Irish land. In Billy’s absence, Nan maintains a lonely vigil, tending to the house and gardens as best she can, while eleven-year-old Kate forlornly watches the narrow lane leading to the house in hopes of her father’s return.

As Matt digs deeper, he finds a web of deceit and cover up with deep roots embedded in the annals of Irish history; dark and treacherous, events of the time left scars too deep to ignore, even a century later. Matt can’t let sleeping dogs lie if he is to find the killer and get to the truth of what happened

Reviews:

An excellent read
I read this book in hours. I found it hard to put down as the plots and sub plots kept me guessing. Everytime I thought I had it figured out, something changed and I was wrong. Matt Costello is much more likeable in this book, the love of a good woman maybe? He is far more human, likeable and dare I say it, a bit of a crush. ~ Cailin, Amazon UK

Loved this book.
Sleeping Dogs by Brid Wade is a thumping good read. An intriguing story with a great blend between fiction and Irish history. How pleasant to have a really nice good hearted detective ! I can’t wait for the next Matt Costello book. ~ Mr. J.A. Hickey, Amazon UK

Full of intrigue!
The reader feels as though they are along for the ride as Matt travels from one place to another, tracking down people to interview and sifting through old evidence. One becomes familiar with the Irish countryside as the book moves on from one scene to another. There are so many things going on, there is never a dull moment in this novel. This is the second book in a series, so readers can look forward to seeing more of Matt Costello in the future. ~ Belinda Wilson, Amazon US
