The Path of Salvation
Catrin Russell dives back into her dark and intriguing Prime series in The Path of Salvation! Anaya is back, this time struggling to deal with the High Priest’s immoral experiments on demons. Russell’s writing is spectacularly cinematic, but the thing I love best about her stories is the moral struggle. The Path of Salvation is a beautiful look at morality from a variety of perspectives that drew me in to the very end!
Andrea Merchak builds a twisted serial killer case in Bloody Legends! Dr. Daniel Cooper decides to up his murderous game by designing his slayings to mimic famous urban legends, all while avoiding the detectives desperate to find him and ruin his fun. This one’s mostly told from the killer’s perspective, so it’s a bit twisted, but Cooper makes for an interesting villain. Check out Bloody Legends if you’re in the mood for something similar to Seven or The Silence of the Lambs!

Johnny Moscato lays down the ultimate slugfest between utopia and dystopia in The Project! John Greenleaf creates the perfect society, one with abundance for all, a society the world isn’t quite ready for. The great clash of ideologies is what I found most interesting and Moscato’s writing brought the perfect blend of action and believability to bring it all to life! I’m excited to see where this battle of thought runs next!
Phillip Murrell captures all the best aspects of vigilante superhero thrillers while also taking a different approach to the trope in Bystanders! As reporter Claire Kennedy zeros in on the mysterious vigilante Votary, questions are raised as to both their motives and the high cost of justice. I really enjoyed Murrell’s actiony story, but especially his more realistic take on the impact to the general citizens and the city itself. Check this one out if you love a good gritty vigilante thriller with depth!

Murder She Vaped: The Ironic T-Shirt Caper
Gregg Maxwell Parker
Gregg Maxwell Parker satires the crime drama perfectly in Murder She Vaped: The Ironic T-Shirt Caper!

David Patneaude brings us a wonderfully wrapped story of ghosts and baseball in Haunting at Home Plate!
