Author Charles Ray is pleased to announce the release of his new mystery novel, Dead Men Don’t Answer.
When a young woman’s fiance, supposedly dead for six months, answers his telephone, she turns to DC private investigator Al Pennyback for help. Al finds himself hip deep in corporate fraud, greed, international terrorism, and manipulation of people in DC’s African immigrant community. Just when he thought the puzzle of the dead man at the other end of the phone couldn’t get any more complex, he learns that a ghost from his past, from a military operation that went badly awry, has come back to haunt him, and the victim might in fact not be a victim, but a killer.
Dead Men Don’t Answer was released on December 15, 2012 and is currently available from Amazon.com and Amazon UK.

Apart From Love
by Uvi Poznansky
Genre: Family Saga, Romantic Suspense
Word count: 106, 040
Written with passionate conviction, this story is being told by two of its characters: Ben, a twenty-seven years old student, and Anita, a plain-spoken, spunky, uneducated redhead, freshly married to Lenny, his aging father. Behind his back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him.
Meanwhile, Lenny is trying to keep a secret from both of them: his ex-wife, Ben’s mother, a talented pianist, has been stricken with an early-onset alzheimer. Taking care of her gradually weighs him down. What emerges in these characters is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.
This book is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Continue reading “Book Brief: Apart From Love”
