Books Release || April 16, 2015 || A Police Mystery Collection

From New York to the Smokies

by Wayne Zurl

Five mysteries spanning more than four decades in the life of career police officer Sam Jenkins.

THE BOAT TO PRISON—set in 1963 when a teenaged Jenkins and his friends attempt to foil a plot to kill a Long Island union leader and keep Sam’s shop steward father from doing hard time.

FAVORS drops readers into a New York of 1985 when Lieutenant Sam Jenkins mounts an unofficial investigation to learn why one of his civilian employees isn’t overjoyed about her promotion to police officer and uncovers a history of unreported and unspeakable crimes.

ODE TO WILLIE JOE, ANGEL OF THE LORD, and MASSACRE AT BIG BEAR CREEK brings the reader up to date with three adventures of Chief Jenkins and the officers of Prospect PD, a police department serving a small town in the Great Smoky Mountains of east Tennessee. UFO sightings, a serial killer on the loose, and the most brutal murders and feud between mountain folk since the Hatfields and McCoys pushes Sam to use every trick he’s learned in a lifetime of detective work to resolve these incidents on his “peaceful side of the Smokies.”

"Love and Laughter" - Glenn ParkhurstLove and Laughter

 by Glenn Oliver Parkhurst

Love and Laughter
Our heart and head battle each other for control in matters of love. These three characters are no different with their internal struggles. This sometimes funny, sometimes sad story about star-crossed lovers shows the mental war that is the integral part of love.

Hot Babe, Cold Snow
The lure of a beautiful woman will cause a man to do almost anything even if it leads to injury and even death for himself or others. Hurtling uncontrollably down a slippery slope is one way to prove his awesome manhood, or is it?

Hereafter Kiss
What happens to people in that space between alive and dead? Love? Maybe. But murder, retribution, and sorrow can exist. The characters in this story are in-between life and death and continue their existence only by taking the last breath from the living or the half dead. But there is one who does it not for survival, but for fun and payback.

Chartreuse
There is a woman for every man and a man for every woman. Well-meaning Chartreuse is a bumbling shy man that has not mustered the courage to pursue the girl of his dreams. The whole town knows the attraction of these two misfits and waits for the disaster when they finally surrender their shyness. This humorous story will bring a smile to your heart.

Ghost of a Chance
This story leads us through the partitions that separate the world of the living from the final destination of the dead. Love between the living and the dead shouldn’t be possible but that doesn’t stop Ron from falling for a ghost. But with love comes danger. Can Ron find a way to save his love from both the living and dead?

Stealing the Spotlight
The first kiss is the most important kiss of all. It sets the tone of the entire relationship. It is an act that is burned into the memory of the couple that shares it. Sometimes, even the most well prepared plan to steal that kiss can go terribly wrong, also leaving a lasting impression.

Solar Seductions 

by Jaden Sinclair

Zane Dill had given up on ever finding love and the perfect woman. He never thought that by helping his friends he’d stumble upon her, or that she would be the daughter of the man bent on destroying all that Pluto has to offer. Now his one and only goal in life is to protect the woman who has his heart. To keep her safe, to love and cherish her to the end of his days.

Kalisha Sedgwick has a big secret that, if divulged, will change the lives of the Deity, a society that wants nothing more than to take what Pluto has to offer and give nothing back. Keeping this secret is one of the most important things to Kalisha—that is until she wakes up and comes face to face with Zane.

Instant attraction hits, yet she is fearful for him. She’s seen what her father has done in the past, been in his path when his rage is at the max. But in Zane’s arms, Kalisha feels protected and safe for the first time ever, and she’s just as willing to do everything she can in her power to stay that way, forever.

The French Couple 
by Nic Penrake

At 38, Luna’s career as a painter takes a sudden dive. The credit crunch is still grinding on and her regular buyers are too busy guarding their second mortgages to invest in modern art. As her financial anxieties escalate, and she digs deeper for new, more ‘commercial’ ideas, she returns to the Pandora’s Box of the past, the sexual and physical abuse she experienced as a child…
…until, one day, she chances upon an idea for a new series of paintings that seems to offer her not just a way out of debt, but a way in to the dark side of her sexuality where nagging questions still remain, demanding answers before she is too advanced in years to have a child of her own.

But at what cost? Her idea is a radical one and upsets her actor boyfriend. She goes for it nonetheless. And in pursuing her ambition, she throws herself into a sexual odyssey with a French swinging couple that brings her to the edge of losing control. Will her daring bear fruit, or end in a triptych of death and disaster?
