*
*
A high ranking Israeli minister has been murdered in Jerusalem. Muslim terrorists are suspected, but no group has claimed responsibility. Finding a barely legible name scribbled on a blood-stained card in the shirt pocket of the slain minister, the Director of Israeli Intelligence calls upon international security consultant Harry McClure to investigate a possible American connection to the brutal crime.
*
McClure soon uncovers a sophisticated Wall Street money-laundering scheme channeling large sums of U.S. currency into secret Israeli bank accounts controlled by a clandestine Messianic brotherhood plotting to overthrow the Israeli government and reclaim Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.
*
The clock is ticking as Israeli Intelligence, aided by McClure, race to organize a preemptive eleventh-hour strategy aimed at thwarting the brotherhood’s imminent attack.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“The Essene Conspiracy: This is a great mystery thriller, I could not put it down. The terrorists in the book are not the run of the mill Islamic terrorists. This is a job for Harry McClure an international security consultant. Harry works in the background and soon uncovers a Wall Street scheme linked to an entirely different type of terrorist.  Harry and his team work to stop a tragedy aimed at starting a World War. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good mystery thriller.”

Revenant by Allan Leverone
Genre: Horror, Supernatural Suspense
Price: $3.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon.com (Kindle)
*
*
A sacred Navajo artifact, imbued with a shocking and dangerous power.
*
An amoral con man, willing to stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
*
And a tiny northern Maine town, isolated and vulnerable.
*
Last November, Paskagankee, Maine was shaken to its core, held hostage by a centuries-old curse, terrorized by a brutal killing spree stopped at the last possible moment by new police chief Mike McMahon and beautiful young patrol officer Sharon Dupont.
*
Now, just as the pair – and the town – is beginning to recover, a new horror comes calling.
*
Billionaire Seattle software designer Brett Parker is in Paskagankee to check on the progress of his newly-constructed summer retreat. But he’s not the only new resident in town. Max Acton, murderous sociopath and Arizona cult leader, has gained possession of a long-hidden sacred Navajo artifact with the ability to reanimate the dead.
*
Acton aims to use the stone in a murderous plot to kidnap Parker and steal his revolutionary new software design developed for the U.S. Department of Defense, selling it to the highest bidder and making millions. He doesn’t even need to get his hands dirty. All he needs is a victim to kill . . . and reanimate . . . and force to do his bidding.
*
All he needs is a revenant.
*
And the revenant is angry. And he’s deadly. And he’s unstoppable. And the town of Paskagankee will once again become a battleground between the living and the dead . . .
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“I first read Paskagankee, and I can tell you that it was a book that had me sitting on the edge of my seat, definitely a page turner. So, when Revenant came out, I of course had to get it also. Revenant was, In my opinion a well written, well researched book, that made you feel that you were right there.”

*
On the outside Shiloh Templar appears rigid as steel. But inside she’s fighting to keep everything together. Not only has she stepped into a minefield of controversy at work, she’s dealing with her father’s debilitating disease and a past in Seattle she wants to forget. Week one as the new director, she’s forced to cut staff. The smart-mouthed, much-too-young and sexy Nicholas Trent’s position is on the chopping block. Yet, rather than accepting his fate, the man blackmails her.
*
Nicolas Trent joined the Department of National Security solely for his mother’s benefit in an attempt to follow in his dead father’s footsteps. He never planned to stay. But when the company’s new director, a fiery red-head nicknamed Old Iron Maiden  makes it clear he’s not DNS material and will probably be released from duty, Nick has a change of heart. He’ll resort to any means to keep his job, even threatening to file a sexual harassment suit against the director for walking in on him in the men’s shower room while he’s naked. What he never dreamed of was the strong, undeniable attraction that could cost him what he’s held on to so tightly.
*
When a threat and two attempts on Shiloh’s life are made, the company insists she have an agent by her side. She’s forced to turn to the one man she thinks doesn’t belong at the department. Now, not only is she in danger of losing her life, after a night in his arms, she’s afraid of losing her heart.

What they’re saying:

“Shiloh and Nick may hate working together, but the heat they produce outside the offices of their national security organization employer could set fire to the readers’ fingers. And when Shiloh’s life is threatened, Nick must stick close
for her protection, sparking attraction into love. Exciting and hot!”

Not Raw Enough by Randall Bowling
Genre: Suspense, Thriller
Price: $4.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle) 
 *
*
*
When an ancient culture defined by its ocean heritage believes the  future of its cuisine is threatened, the lethal solution becomes not raw enough.
*
The rich rewards of Japan’s exclusive seafood markets  incite the world’s elite suppliers as Seth Tinsley’s Hatteras Island  exports spawn outrageous profits and a charmed life. After too many of  his friends die in bizarre accidents, Seth’s life crashes and his  lucrative sales to Japan dwindle. He never notices his success has  attracted predators.
*
On the business trip of a lifetime to Tokyo  and the Tsukiji Market to stun the international seafood establishment  with the launch of his dynamic aquatic invention, Seth ends up alone and hunted in Japan; wanted by the JNP for mass-murder and marked  expendable by the US Government.
(
What they’re saying about it:
*
“R. Bowling, author, infuses the activity within a rural, south  Atlantic fishing industry with that within  the culture emanating from  the Japanese gastromical desires for the perfect fish.  The author  spices the text with romance, greed, sophistication and violence  resulting in a provacative text that reads quickly.  Also the reader’s  gain is not only entertainment but trivial facts that will embelish his  memory store.”–Amazon Reviewer
*
“This is a great read. The story moves quickly with just the right  amount of suspense and intrigue. Gave me a new appreciation of the  Japanese seafood industry. I’ll never look at sushi the same way again.”–Amazon Reviewer
