Title: Dover Beach

Author: Richard Bowker

Series: The Last P.I. #1

In an America sad and broken by a “limited” nuclear war, no one has much use for awould-be private eye like Walter Sands. No one, that is, except for Charles Winfield, an eccentric doctor who believes he was cloned from a prominent biochemist as part of a top-secret project undertaken before the war. Sands sets out to find Winfield’s mysterious progenitor, but finds himself on the trails of a killer instead.

Now, in far-away, fabled England, Sands must uncover the facts about the case that has brought him to his promised land, and at the same time confront the unsettling truth about his world, his life, and his loyalties.

A story of love and betrayal, life and death, the future and the past. A story that will make you laugh, make you cry — and make you think.

Author: Alex MacLean

Halifax cop Allan Stanton is a troubled homicide detective who has lost everything, including his family and his sense of justice. When he finally decides to leave the force and start over, he's assigned a string of murders that all bear the signs of a serial killer collecting trophies.

As Stanton unravels each grisly crime scene, the mounting evidence points uncomfortably close to him, forcing him to confront a past he'd rather forget--and a dangerous future when the killer targets Stanton himself.

Author: H.D. Thomson

Series: Shrouded #1

RWA Contest 1st place in Peninsula RWA Chapter’s contest.

Jake Preston is on borrowed time. If he doesn’t stumble upon a miracle and soon, he’ll end up dead. And even if he does, he still might end up dead with a clever killer hounding his heels. He believes that the one miracle and antidote to save him is in Margot Davenport’s house, across the country and miles away from Boston. Somewhere locked in her home is the key to reversing an experiment that is killing him.

Margot doesn’t particularly care if she ends up dead. She’s lost everything she’s ever cared for. A divorce and the loss of her job as a corporate lawyer has left her with little faith in herself or in anyone else. Most importantly, she’s lost the one person on this earth she’s looked up to and cherished–her brother, Johnny. His death in a car accident has devastated her, and she can’t find the willpower to pull herself from the chasm she’s fallen into. Her only solace is at the bottom of a wineglass. Having moved back to the small town in northern Arizona where she was raised, she’s made a point of isolating herself both mentally and physically from everyone other than a few chosen friends. Little does she know that her life is going to explode into chaos and the person behind Johnny's death is coming after her.

Title: Evangeline

Author: E.A. Gottschalk

Angeline Gottschalk is a bullied, socially withdrawn sixteen year-old who lives on the family farm with a psychotic mother, an abusive stepfather and a dark secret she keeps hidden… even from herself. That secret is Evangeline, the cold-blooded yet fun-loving murderess who narrates this gleefully twisted memoir of growing up a teenaged serial killer in rural Nebraska.

Unaware she suffers from a nasty case of multiple-personality disorder, it seems the shy farmer’s daughter will never meet her notorious alter ego, until the next victim in Evangeline’s deadly crosshairs turns out to be the boy Angeline loves.

Weaving the stories of two distinctly different personalities around the narrator’s dark-humored commentary on the society that drove her to kill, "Evangeline" invites readers along on a bad girl’s violent crusade against injustice, and into the savage depths of her fractured mind.

Novelette; part one of three.

Warning: "Evangeline" contains strong language, sexual situations and violence.

Hope you all enjoy this Freebie Friday offers!
