MICHELLE SCOTT

The Dragons of Hazlett, by Michelle Scott

In Amberweise’s polite society, a proper young woman of pure Magician ancestry would never involve herself with something as unpleasant as solving a murder. She would faint at the sight of wheels, pulleys, hinges or other demonic machines. She would never deign to notice the wretched lives of the non-magical commons who serve her day and night, nor would she ever dare to question the traditions of her upbringing. And, most certainly, she would never even think of falling in love with a man whose combination of common heritage and magical abilities have made him a pariah.

MATT HILTON

Cut and Run, by Matt Hilton

Joe Hunter’s devil is Luke Rickard, a killer who has stolen his identity and committed a vicious double murder. His motive? Revenge. His method? A blade. His mission? Kill anyone Hunter holds dear.

It is a deadly duel of wits that takes Hunter from the streets of Miami to the squalid barrios of Colombia to the jungle hideaway of a drug baron. And brings him face to face with his past.

Revenge is a dish best served cold and Joe needs a cool head if Rickard is not to cut and run.

Slash and Burn, by Matt Hilton

Joe Hunter is enjoying some much needed r&r when a young woman approaches him to help find her missing sister. Kate Piers knows about Joe from her dead brother Jake, Hunter’s former comrade in arms, and for that reason alone he feels obliged to help. The fact that Kate is very attractive doesn’t hurt.

Together they go to Imogen’s Kentucky home where they are immediately attacked by a bunch of thugs, acting on behalf of local businessman Robert Huffman. Huffman is outwardly respectable but the psychotic twins he uses as his enforcers give the game away: he has links to organised crime and a deadly reputation with a blade. Huffman is also looking for Imogen, and kidnaps Kate to act as bait. Looks like Joe is in trouble again . . .

Rhyme or Treason: (the hard fought illusion of choice), by David Raffin

In “The Twilight of the Clowns” a traditional way of life ends as clowning ceases to be a viable way of life;

In “Everybody Loves a Little Elf” elves save a man’s business but they create a literal stink about property rights and slave labor;

In “More than One Day in the Life of Igor Igoravitch” a KGB agent is caught up in a web of intrigue that is his own creation;

The web of lies in Charlotte’s Web is exposed;

and the price of the simulacra in the window is finally laid bare.

RICHARD GODWIN

Apostle Rising, by Richard Godwin

Detective Chief Inspector Frank Castle never caught the Woodlands Killer and it almost destroyed him. Now years later, mauled by the press, and traumatised by nightmares, he is faced with a copycat killer with detailed inside knowledge of the original case.

He and his partner DI Jacki Stone enter a deadly labyrinth, and at its centre is the man Castle believes was responsible for the first killings. He’s running a sinister cult and playing dark mind games with the police. The investigation has a shattering effect on the lives of Castle and Stone. The killer is crucifying politicians, and he keeps raising the stakes and slipping through their hands. Dark coded ritualistic killings are being carried out on high profile figures and the body count is rising. Castle employs a brilliant psychologist to help him solve the case, and he begins to dig into the killer’s psyche. But some psychopaths are cleverer than others.

You never know who, or what, is lying in wait behind the next comma. Whether it’s Super Noxious Air Man and his sidekick, Kid Centrifugal Force, or the next episode of Teddy the Rottweiler Spayer, Sands keeps you off-balance with laughter and astonishment.

These stories are crammed with the delightfully odd and the scurrilously silly. From moment to moment My Heart Said No requires the most unexpected, perplexing, and hilarious leaps of faith. But you’ll be glad you took this exhilarating jump into uncharted territory.
