The Stolen Manuscript Book Excerpt:

A Private Eye, originally from Florida, now living in Baltimore, is hired to find a famous missing horror author and his latest manuscript, the writer, one of Mobtown's own. Tender nodded in the direction of the dead Venom. “What’s on his right arm?” “Believe it or not, it’s a Webster’s Dictionary. Here, use my pen to flip through these page numbers on this log. Be careful—it’s a Paper Mate. Here’s a pad; write down the words that are highlighted.” Tender bent down and crossed under the yellow-and-black tape surrounding the crime scene. “I have my own notebook and pen, a Montblanc.” “Well, excuse me for livin’, hon!” Omaha said with a smile. “What’s with the ‘Caution: Wet Paint’ on the strip surrounding the body?” “All the ‘Police Line: Do Not Cross’ ones are being used; Captain Calvert ordered more, but Chief Crossland said they haven’t arrived.” “Busy day, huh?” “It’s Thursday.”... “You were a bad boy; it was deserved,” PI Tender stated. “Revenge murder, huh?... “Seems likely.” “Think he was on the take with the mob?” Tender questioned. “Wouldn’t have thought it, but his nose area does look somewhat raw. Get a little closer, check out his mouth.” “It’s full of oysters!” “Definitely a full house,” Omaha said. “Are those bloodstains on his shirt?” “Cocktail sauce. Sergeant Small was able to get a little taste. A negligible amount of blood around the wound...

Stealing Santa Rita Book Excerpt:

Our culture produces many whose goals are to create new jobs, increased profits and growth that will benefit humanity. Some, like Peter Oliver Sessions, subvert those goals, overlooking moral and ethical truths. His march to success, driven by ambition and misguided religious convictions, turns into a selfish quest for personal reward. He first uses Santa Rita as a refuge from doting parents, the Vietnam War and then to escape possible jailing for questionable stock transactions. For centuries this quiet Mexican fishing village was isolated from the outside world. When young surfers were attracted by the great waves washing into its bay, "Pedro" Sessions follows their lead. Sessions spent his war years looking for the next best waves and exploiting a tribe of Huichol Indians in order to support his lifestyle. When Jimmy Carter pardoned those that fled military service, Pedro returned to California and, after a cram course in business administration, became a broker of IPO's and mutual funds. Faced with possible indictment for illegal trading, Pedro returned to Santa Rita with a new wife, Isabella Eugenia, and a limited knowledge of real estate development. His first effort created the boutique hotel, Casa de Mastil, whose popularity with tourists soon led to investment in the project by Gringos from North America. Despite the detractions of a murder, lawsuits from angry purchasers, and adverse public opinion, Pedro continued to expand the hotel until a victim of his unscrupulous deals, Enid Williams, rallied the community to bring down his would-be empire. In the process Enid found self-esteem after a lifetime of personal setbacks.

"A pennant-winning look at baseball at its purest." —Atlanta Journal & Constitution On the field with baseball classics like Men at Work and The Boys of Summer, David Lamb travels the backroads of America to draw a stirring portrait of minor league baseball that will enchant every fan who has ever sat in the bleachers and waited for the crack of the bat. A sixteen-thousand mile journey across America…. A travelogue of minor league teams and the towns that support them… A chronicle of hopes and dreams… Correspondent David Lamb embarks on a trek that captures the triumphs and defeats as thousands of players do all they can to reach the big leagues.

13 Stolen Girls Book Excerpt:

Perfect for fans of Michael Connelly or Nevada Barr, this gripping Layla Remington thriller from International Thriller Writers Award finalist Gil Reavill plunges readers beneath the glittering façade of Hollywood and into a terrifying underworld where beautiful women can just . . . disappear. Malibu is crumbling. A monster earthquake has just ripped apart some of the priciest real estate on the planet. In a bizarre twist, it has also unearthed a grim secret buried for years beneath one particularly unstable hilltop: a steel barrel containing the mummified remains of Tarin Mistry, the beautiful starlet who went missing more than a decade ago. When Detective Investigator Layla Remington looks into that wretched metal coffin, she realizes she’s just landed the case of a lifetime. But before Layla even strips off her latex gloves, a pair of hotshot LAPD detectives arrive on the scene and remove her from the investigation. Undeterred, she pursues her own line of inquiry. Risking her badge and her life, Layla’s determination to track down Tarin’s murderer takes her from the rarified air of exclusive canyon communities to seedy downtown sex clubs and the secluded lair of one of Hollywood’s most powerful men. But while Tarin’s case may be cold, her killer is poised to strike again—and in Layla, this depraved sociopath may have just found fresh prey.

The Lazarus Files Book Excerpt:

A deeply-reported, riveting account of a cold case murder in Los Angeles, unsolved until DNA evidence implicated a shocking suspect – a female detective within the LAPD’s own ranks. On February 24, 1986, 29-year-old newlywed Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in the home she shared with her husband, John. The crime scene suggested a ferocious struggle, and police initially assumed it was a burglary gone awry. Before her death, Sherri had confided to her parents that an ex-girlfriend of John’s, a Los Angeles police officer, had threatened her. The Rasmussens urged the LAPD to investigate the ex-girlfriend, but the original detectives only pursued burglary suspects, and the case went cold. DNA analysis did not exist when Sherri was murdered. Decades later, a swab from a bite mark on Sherri’s arm revealed her killer was in fact female, not male. A DNA match led to the arrest and conviction of veteran LAPD Detective Stephanie Lazarus, John’s onetime girlfriend. The Lazarus Files delivers the visceral experience of being inside a real-life murder mystery. McGough reconstructs the lives of Sherri, John and Stephanie; the love triangle that led to Sherri’s murder; and the homicide investigation that followed. Was Stephanie protected by her fellow officers? What did the LAPD know, and when did they know it? Are there other LAPD cold cases with a police connection that remain unsolved?

Seven Librarian Detective Series Book Excerpt:

Bobby Cinema has written seven detective stories in one book about each different character going through solving a difficult case, being in the action and deal with real intensive stuff they had to go through from solving cases. For these seven ordinary detectives and their team, their work usually ends up in a library, which is their sanctuary and a place to read and relax at the same time. The first detective series is called Raymond: Librarian PI. Ray Levenstein, a former FBI agent, took over the head librarian job from his friend Jerry who helped him get in the LAPD police academy and became his mentor when he grew up. He was forced into retirement when he was shot in the line of fire when he was a FBI agent. Ray was well respected and highly decorated as an FBI agent, but he decided to retire at a young age of thirty-five. He took over Jerry’s job as a head librarian in the Los Angeles Public Library and decided to run a detective agency in his library since he has a PI license. He hires Kevin Sandler, Nick Arbuckle, and Alyson Harris who joined the PI team. Thank you for reading the Seven Librarian Detective series. I hope you enjoy reading them. Who knows, maybe I can come up with another princess story in another time. This is my seventh book that I turn my seven librarian detective stories in one book. See you next time, and the library is now closed. Good-bye!

Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio- Cortez • "You're an A' student and a wonderful storyteller." Jay Johnson, Professor Emeritus College • "Your mother was a delight and so is your memoir. Mazel Tov! Elliot Gould • "Your book is fast –paced, poignant and funny." Former Santa Monica Mayer , Mat Trives •As I recently turned 90, Jerry is my new role model." Ed Asner Excerpts “After my father’s funeral, my aunt Mildred admonished, ‘Jerry, now you’re the man of the house.’ I was 12 and it was the height of the Depression. How was I going to do it?” “Panicked by Orson Welles’ ‘War of the Worlds,’ radio broadcast, my boss, Mr. Wiener, who owned the drug store, raced out the door. I assumed to fight the aliens or sell them some Pepto-Bismol.” “During WWII, my racist co-workers threatened, ‘We don’t appreciate you with the nig*er.’ “I’ll eat my lunch with whoever I want,’ I said defiantly, hoping they didn’t see my knees knocking.” “On a troop ship heading home on leave, I rolled 11 straight passes. If I’d been in Vegas, I’d have owned the hotel.” “My most charismatic customer was Muhammad Ali, the most relaxed was Bing Crosby, and the most menacing was mobster Alan Dorfman who wound up murdered, gangland style.” “Because of the unexpected steep grade, I fell. I lay helpless in the street, 96-years old, bleeding and unable to get up. But after being rescued I wondered, had I finally met my guardian angel?”

Where the Thunder Hidin Book Excerpt:

Evil. It comes in different shapes, sizes, shades and flavours. It is sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant but always destructive. It can be strange, it can be bizarre, it can be hidden, it can be in plain sight. It can be fascinating to some, frightening to others but ignored at everyone's peril. Samuel 'Juice' Petty purposely attracted evil. He courted it, he danced with it, he loved it. One night he heard the voice of Charlie Manson calling his name and embraced it, followed it to a California desert and started a new Family. With the final sign fulfilled - a black man in the White House - Juice released the ultimate of evils - Helter Skelter - once again. While the intersection of desperate needs and irresistible wants fashioned an unholy alliance of the unlikeliest of associates which brought his ultimate desire - to free Charlie to walk in the desert once more - within his grasp.

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore Book Excerpt:

From the award-winning author of For Today I Am a Boy, a gripping and deeply felt novel about a group of young girls at a remote camp--and the night that changes everything and will shape their lives for decades to come A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home. The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls--Nita, Andee, Isabel, Dina, and Siobhan--through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves--and the pasts we can't escape.

New Money Nice Town Book Excerpt:

The economic restructuring that has gone on since the 1980s has produced a new economic space in which service and high tech firms are at the forefront of innovation. One of the features of the new economy is what pop geographer Joel Kotkin calls "nerdistans," or smaller cities with a substantial high tech sector, limits on growth, environmentally friendly policies and a generally well-educated population. In New Money, Nice Town, Leonard Nevarez takes a close look at how "new economy" firms in "quality of life" cities interact with local political structures, finding that they are both more liberal and more detached than their traditional counterparts. This new global economy has created communities whose politics are more democratic, but also more tenuous and unstable.

New to LA and fresh off his first spec sale, a screenwriter sits alone at Cabana, a bar in Santa Monica, California. Through a cloud of cigarette smoke, he spies a girl. Their eyes meet and they connect instantly. If the screenwriter's story were to end on this moment, it would have a happy ending. Alas, shit happens as it is wont to do and four years later, a storm is brewing over Hollywood. Cyber-attacks are decimating the studio system, exposing the secrets of everyone within it. The screenwriter-now a disaffected entertainment news blogger-unwinds with a whiskey in Cabana after a day spent investigating the hacks. That is, until Grace Chase-the girl from four years prior, now the star of television's Vampire Queen-requests his help when she's blackmailed with incriminating photos. He's reluctant to oblige. But Grace needs him and he's powerless to deny her, embarking on an odyssey across Los Angeles that will have him questioning everything about the girl he once knew and the industry that's defined his life....
