Available for the first time as an eBook, New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey’s thrilling short story Harlem

“People called me Harlem. I dubbed myself after that dangerous neighborhood that I’d never seen. I read life is rough in Harlem, and a black man isn’t expected to live to see twenty-five. I was twenty-three. The clock was ticking.”

When Harlem gets off on a murder charge due to insanity, the asylum he’s sent to feels worse than death, with one exception: the beautiful nurse Daphane. As their relationship grows, so do the stakes: she has the ability to help him escape, and he has the ability to set her free from her abusive relationship. Yet Harlem has one big secret: he was perfectly sane when he committed his crime. But in the end, Daphane’s own secret may be the deadliest of all. . . .

Includes an excerpt from Eric’s upcoming novel, Before We Were Wicked, coming April 2019. 
Harlem was previously published in the 2006 anthology Voices from the Other Side.

#Review “Naked Truths (Naked, a romantic mystery, thriller and suspense series Book 1)” by Karen Botha

Naked Truths cover

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Plot twists and deceptions are the order of the day in this suspenseful read.

Lucy is a professional masseuse—she prefers the term therapist–afraid to open her heart after a bad relationship but is drawn to the soft-spoken widower who shows up at her business.

Her best friend and former cop, Paula, is immediately distrustful of the man and has doubts—read suspicions–about the death of his chronically ill wife.

As family and friends are drawn (or dragged) into the story, it’s difficult to know who to trust… or if anyone can be trusted. It seems everyone had a motive to get rid of Steph Harrington… including her husband.

Enjoyed this work of crime fiction even though I didn’t care for any of the characters, including Lucy. Guess that means they all played their parts perfectly.

The spins and twists are spot on and will cause readers to pause gaped mouth more than once, and even when you think you know… you don’t. You have to read to the very. Last. Word!

Enjoy!

~~~

He’s a grieving widower, the perfect boyfriend, and the prime suspect…

Lucy knows the importance of boundaries. As a massage therapist, she keeps her work and her personal life completely separate. But when a handsome widower shows up on her table and sparks an instant attraction, Lucy is shameless. Breaking her rule, she crosses the line, triggering a series of thrilling mysteries.

Paula isn’t so sure about her best friend’s perfect man… or the story of his wife’s death. To uncover the truth, the former detective infiltrates his social circle. When she examines a scandalous lodger, a jealous brother, and a protective mother-in-law, everyone seems to have a hidden motive for murder…

Lucy is torn between her old friend and her dark new love. Will she follow her head or her heart? And can Paula discover the true killer before her friend makes a fateful mistake?

Naked Truths is the first book in a series of pulse-pounding romantic suspense books. If you like the odd steamy sex scene, complex characters, and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love the suspense of Karen Botha’s gripping romantic suspense.

The rest of the Naked Series of gripping mystery romances can be read as stand alones or as part of the series and are free on Kindle Unlimited.

“The Marriage Bed” by Lakisha Johnson

The Marriage Bed cover

The Marriage Bed

by Lakisha Johnson

Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense/African-American/Christian

99¢ at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

Lynn and Jerome Watson have been together since meeting in the halls of Booker T. Washington High School, in 1993. Twenty-five years, a house, business and three children later they are on the heels of their 18th wedding anniversary and Lynn’s 40th birthday.

Her only request … a night of fun, at home, with her husband and maybe a few toys.

Lynn thinks their marriage bed is suffering and wants to spice it up. Jerome, on the other hand, thinks Lynn is overreacting. His thoughts, if it ain’t broke, don’t break it trying to fix it.

Then something happens that shakes up the Watson household and secrets are revealed but the biggest secret, Jerome has and his lips are sealed.

Bible says in Hebrews 13:4, “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” But what happens when life starts throwing daggers, lies, turns and twists?

“The Klowns of Kent: A Darkly Comic Cozy Mystery Thriller: Blue Moon Investigations Book 3” by Steve Higgs

Klowns of Kent cover

The Klowns of Kent: A Darkly Comic Cozy Mystery Thriller: Blue Moon Investigations Book 3

by Steve Higgs

Genre: Thriller & Suspense/Dark Humor/Satire/Supernatural/Ghosts

2.99 at times of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

There might be no such thing as werewolves, vampires or ghosts but apparently evil Klowns are real.

Tempest Michaels is once again investigating ridiculous cases that are clearly not even slightly paranormal in nature. However, his daily menu of fun is interrupted by a plague of men dressed in garish outfits. They wear twisted clown make-up as they terrorise the Kent towns and villages with ever escalating and more frequent attacks.

The Klowns should be a case for the police to solve but their leader appears to have a serious beef with Tempest and they are coming for him and anyone that gets in their way. Who are the Klowns? What do they want? And what’s with the ridiculous smiles?

If they were not enough of a nuisance, he has foolishly employed a woman he is utterly besotted by. Trying to ignore Mr Wriggly’s thoughts about what to do with his new colleague, he goes after his silver medal, a girl he lusted after years ago at school, but while Mr Wriggly might not care tuppence about the difference, is Tempest’s heart really in it?

Throw in a demonic possession, a restaurant with ghostly footsteps and some more meddling by his mother, it looks like another entertaining week for Kent’s best Paranormal Investigator.

Forgive me father, for I have sinned . . .

Detective Mike Cancini has seen dark days as a homicide detective in Washington, D.C. But even he is shocked when a charismatic young priest is found shot through the eye on the altar of his own church. As Cancini investigates, he uncovers long-buried secrets from the man’s past, and it becomes clear that the church was not as holy as it seemed.

When another priest is attacked, Cancini refuses to believe it’s a coincidence, and his frustration grows as his search is blocked at every turn by inflexible priests and cagey church employees. The resolute detective must unravel the web of lies before more people are hurt, but how can he find a murderer when no one is innocent, and everyone’s a sinner?
