David Biddle Announces New Release

beyond the will of godAuthor David Biddle is pleased to announce the release of his new mystery novel, Beyond the Will of God.

Police detective Jill Simpson investigates the murder of an Amish teenager. Tabloid reporter Frank Harris investigates mysterious Elvis sightings in Missouri farm country. As these two work first separately and then as a team, the plot progresses to include many of the legendary conspiracies people pondered during the ‘60s and ‘70s. Threaded through the story is the question of the power of music, especially loud guitar music, and whether we have missed out on identifying secret dimensions of human perception here in the 21st century. Beyond the Will of God is an off-the-grid mystery.

Beyond the Will of God was released on June 12, 2012, published by Flat Branch Press. It is available on Amazon.com as an e-book and in a bound paper edition.

Book Brief: Hope Road

by John Barlow
Genre: Crime thriller
Word count: 80,000

John Ray, son of crime boss Antonio ‘Tony’ Ray, is the straight one of the family. With a successful business and a lifestyle to match, he wants nothing to do with his father’s criminal world. But what does that world want with him?

A young prostitute is found dead in John’s car, and Freddy Metcalfe, his best friend and employee, is framed for her death. Freddy denies everything but it’s an open and shut case: he’s going down for murder. John sets out to find the real killer.

But things get complicated. A stash of counterfeit money was also found in John’s car, and the police seem more interested in that than in the dead girl. Then Lanny Bride turns up; one of the north’s most ruthless criminals (and an old friend of the Ray family), Lanny is desperate to know who killed the girl. But why? Meanwhile, Freddy is too scared to talk to anyone, even his lawyer.

John’s girlfriend, Denise Danson, is a cop. She’s been warned off the case by her bosses. But she doesn’t believe Freddy is guilty, and secretly helps John look for the murderer. The problem, though, is that uncovering the shocking truth about the girl’s death will force John to confront his own criminal past and risk destroying his future, as well as losing the only woman he’s ever loved.

This title is available form Amazon US, Amazon UK, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble. Continue reading “Book Brief: Hope Road”
