Bobby Clyne has nothing to lose. Two illegitimate governments have taken the place of the fallen United States: The Directorate in the East and the United States Valiant in the West. And he’s just learned that a man who once terrorized his family as a low-ranking member of the Military Police is set to become the Grand Marshall of the Ohio Region. Armed with his father’s Dragunov sniper rifle, Bobby embarks on a mission of revenge with consequences far more reaching than his personal vendetta.

No Angel by Joseph Alexander
This novella is a dark and surreal, British homage to ‘Catcher In The Rye.’ The central character Michael tells us the story of his dysfunctional family and promises to reveal why he killed his girlfriend, Kelly. He also blames himself for the suffering of his younger sister, Kim, whose life is spinning out of control. As the story develops, we begin to discover more about the extraordinary psychological connection between Michael and Kim and the reasons for Kim’s agony. Will Michael’s attempts to ‘help’ his sister finally succeed in destroying her and how exactly has he been punished for his crime? Ultimately, the reader is made to question the borders of consciousness itself. Those who enjoy experimental fiction will find this an evocative read.

Gripping and Thrilling!

“No Angel” by Author Joseph Alexander is a gripping is a psychologically thriller that left me on edge the entire time. His writing style reminded me a bit of Author Steven King’s “The Dome” in that you get deep into the disturbed mind of main character Michael. What Michael thinks, feels, sees plots, the vulgarity in his language is so distraught and brilliantly written that it quickly become riveting and captivating.
There is much more to the story that meets the eye. No spoilers but the twists around every corner are endless and nothing, I repeat, nothing is, as it seems. In short, this is an astounding book that is well written in a fast paced manner that I enjoyed for two nights on end. Highly recommended many times over.

“One of the best books I’ve ever read, and I’ve read tens of thousands in my 54 yrs.”

I’m only about halfway through this book, but I love it so much, I just have to leave a review now. Where has David Lee Veroux been all my life?!! Incredible writing, characters, I just can’t give this guy enough praise. Get to read it for free with Kindle Unlimited, but I would gladly pay a fortune if he wrote another book like this. Right up there, and maybe even better, than Stephen King’s “The Body.” I truly hope Veroux writes many, many more books.

Loved this book! I loved the writing, the story, the way it was told.
This story is told in 2 alternate timelines. The first takes place in the mid-1930’s when a retreat for rich boys is built by a man who wanted other boys to keep his son, Ethan, company. He buys up lots of land in the Catoctin area of Maryland from the existing farmers for this. Except there is one holdout, the Crosby family. This sparks a rage in Ethan, who tries to get the family to leave the land in a series of escalating attacks despite warnings that the family may be more than what they seem. In one extreme act, Ethan’s actions give rise to consequences that echo thoughout the years of Camp Aerie.
This leads us to the other story taking place in the 1980’s and it’s main character, Billy Powell. You will follow Billy to when he first attends camp and through several years after, and will witness not only camp life through his eyes, but several incidences which baffle the campers and some call the Cropsy curse.
That’s all I am going to say about it because I don’t really want to give too much away. This book reminded me so much of the movie Stand By Me and the book, Boy’s Life. The way the author vividly wrote about camp life just came alive for me. Some reviewers thought the book was too long, but I wasn’t bored for one minute. The alternating timelines (it alternated in chapters) wasn’t confusing in the least and I actually liked that it was set up that way. The two stories do end up coming together to a satisfying end.
Anyway, I am going to quit writing before I sound like I am babbling. I’m not very good at this, but I wanted to give kudos to this author. He should keep writing.

Lisa Kaamp operates a small childcare business out of her home in Nogeksum, Michigan. Highly respected and known for going the extra mile for her daycare kids, she thinks she’s handled every daycare emergency possible. But nothing prepares her for the horror she now faces.
Lisa finds herself bound and gagged, four strange men in her home, and the daycare children held hostage in the next room. Terrorized by her captors as the authorities work to meet the ransom deadline, she tries negotiating with the men for the release of the children, but soon realizes they have no intention of letting anyone go.

The Black Widow
In a chilling new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub, one woman looking for love online is entangled in a killer’s terrifying scheme . . .
In the moonlight, shovelfuls of earth fall on a wooden crate at the bottom of a deep pit. Soon the hole will be filled and covered over with leaves, erasing all trace of the victim below, waking to the horror of being buried alive . . .
Newly divorced Gaby Duran isn’t really expecting to find her soul mate on a dating site like InTune. She just needs a distraction from pining over her ex-husband, Ben, and the happy marriage they once had. And she’s wise enough to know that online, the truth doesn’t always match the profile. Almost everyone lies a little—or a lot.
But Gaby quickly discovers there is much more at stake than her lonely heart. Local singles are going missing after making online connections. And a predator is searching again for the perfect match. One who will fulfill every twisted desire . . . or die trying.
“Staub is at the top of her writing game with The Black Widow. Even suspense readers will find themselves fully engaged by the wonderfully twisted plot as Staub successfully flirts with some of the established tropes of the suspense genre only to later surprise readers by turning these same classic plot devices on their head. The Black Widow is superior, spine-tingling suspense that fans of Mary Higgins Clark’s early novels will eat up with a spoon.”
— John Charles for Reader to Reader
“A fantastic thriller that will have you trapped in its pages; Staub has made sure that it is virtually impossible to set this one aside and come back to it.”
— Suspense Magazine
“At any given time, there were four storylines happening all at once, and yet the author manages to weave them all seamlessly together. The characters are intriguing, and the overall theme of loss and bouncing back from the past will resonate with readers. Despite the multiple storylines and characters, this novel flows amazingly well, making it easy to follow. (Four Stars)”
