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.
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 . . .
The mysterious and beautiful Dao-Ming Chen and the acerbic and sarcastic Rolando “Rollie” Castilblanco are Steve Moore’s most interesting characters. Get acquainted with them in this new anthology.
I finished them in one sitting, because I couldn’t put them down, but they would read equally well in 7 deadly bites. Each story is like an episode of “Law & Order” for your Kindle.
A fantastic introduction to Moore’s work, with living, breathing characters Chen & Castilblanco. Vivid, realistic stories that will leave you searching for another book by this author.

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.
