THE DEVIL’S RIGHT HAND brings readers back into the world of THE NIGHT WALK MEN and its principals, Sperro and Fallow, two brothers charged with managing the lives and deaths of their human flock. It’s present day, many seasons past the events of the prelude novella when their father, Obsidion was dealt his harsh punishment for going against The Word. There are new characters, new Night Walkers and a broader scope for the Night Walkers’ Work.

The novel centres on Sperro and Fallow’s efforts to wrangle two men from different worlds. Benton Garamond was a career bureaucrat with children, a loving wife and a house in the suburbs. All of that is gone now and Benton is on a mission that only Sperro truly understands. On other end of the spectrum is Donnie Lo, a Chinese-Canadian drug lord gone into hiding after his empire has crumbled. What ties the two men together? And what will happen when the backdrop of the Night Walk Men is forever changed by the onset of a coming civil war?

This is Sperro’s world and as he puts it when asked to share, “I’ll tell you everything you need to know. Your curiosities are fair and I will treat them that way…I will answer all your questions. But in due time, vice-a-verse-a, you’ll be asked to answer mine.”

In Victorian London’s cesspool of crime and disease, a series of murders remains undiscovered until a cholera victim is found floating in the  city’s drinking water supply. Dr Anton Kronberg, England’s best  bacteriologist, is called upon to investigate and finds evidence of  abduction and medical maltreatment. While Scotland Yard has little  interest in pursuing the case, Kronberg pushes on and crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes. The detective immediately discovers Kronberg’s secret – a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine – a  criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. But both  must join forces to stop a crime so monstrous, it outshines Jack the  Ripper’s deeds in brutality and cold-bloodedness.

What they’re saying about it:

“The story is fast-paced, engaging, enjoyably atmospheric, dark, and I’m really fascinated with Anna’s character.” The Stormy Petrels

^
“Beyond being a fine CSI/Sherlock Holmes style mystery, this is a poignant  novel at times almost poetic” … “An unforgettable hero(ine)” Dan Andriacco, best-selling author of Baker Street Beat

^
“You’ve created a truly fascinating character in Dr Kronberg and set her against one of the finest  characters in English mystery fiction. Dr. Kronberg is intelligent, passionate about what she does, assertive in a positive way, and compassionate and empathetic to modern readers. That she must masquerade as a man in order to do what she does best and achieve the success she so richly deserves speaks volumes about the history of women in Western society.” Paul Negri, former editor-in-chief and president of Dover Publications

Valley of the Scarecrow by Gord Rollo
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Price: Free during 11/20/12 and 11/21/12 otherwise $3.99

Gord Rollo’s chilling homage to slasher films!
During the  great depression, a small backwoods community in Iowa face even more  difficult times than most, having to endure the slowly fading sanity of  their leader, Reverend Joshua Miller. When it is clear the man has  slipped beyond the edge of reason and perhaps signed a deal with the  devil, the citizens unite to stop him any way they can, breaking into  the church to lash the reverend to his wooden alter cross then boarding  up the windows and doors to leave him to fate and God’s judgment. The  people of Oak Valley then abandoned their town to the cornfields and  woods; ending the madness for what they hoped was forever.

They were wrong!  Seventy-four years later, the corn and trees have taken back the area and not much  is left of the once thriving little community but Joshua Miller’s  desecrated church still stands, and within its boarded up and sun-baked  walls something that used to be a holy man waits for whoever is  unfortunate enough to release him from his cross…

What they’re saying:

“This is a roller coaster ride of blood, gore, and (best of all!), pure scary fun. The characters are engaging, the plot is fun, and it’s a good read from start to finish.”

“This is classic horror. Think teen-slasher movie.”

“In Valley of the Scarecrow, Gord Rollo offers a return to the golden age of horror, chock full of good old-fashioned chills.”

MY TEMPORARY LIFE by MARTIN CROSBIE
Genre:  Romantic, Suspense
Price: $3.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
*
*
*
“It has everything, simply everything-a coming of age, a romance, and a thriller rolled into one delightful read.
8
From the very first sentence, we’re drawn into the harsh Scotland schoolboy world of Malcolm and Hardly. Malcolm’s summers in Canada with his mother offer little comfort. He survives by running; running through the streets, running between Scotland and Canada, running from himself and his past.
Flash ahead 20 years. In Canada, Malcolm meets Heather, a woman haunted by an evil secret. When they camp at the Lake at the end of the World, they discover there is nowhere left to run, for either of them.
Like the great 19th century writers (but with a lighter touch), Martin Crosbie takes Malcolm from a life focused on the primary needs of food, sex and basic survival to loftier aspirations. He enters an intangible, often illusory world of evil that requires enormous human faith; and tosses the reader onto a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Again and again he refuses to walk away from heart hammering danger.
8
Mr. Crosbie’s deft character-development pen never allows the reader to question Malcolm’s choices. He has prepared for this journey since his boyhood days in Scotland. This time, he’s not backing down, whatever the cost.”
8
There were moments of magic, scenes filled with foreboding, passages that were poetic and ruminative, others that were breathtaking. The masterful handling of Malcolm’s mother, was brilliant. There were many scenes, especially toward the end, that were fast-paced and made the book impossible to put down.”

4 out of 5 stars ~ “This delightful Regency tale takes historical fiction one step further, by exploring relationships that time and death cannot sever by introducing paranormal elements. Lauren Hunter’s extensive research into this period is evident and creates a traditional setting for this non-traditional story. Her use of humour and dialogue brings the characters to life, crafting an engaging story with witty repartee.” ~ Mrs. Rabbit
