Ready to hit the beach? Don’t forget to take a stack of crime thrillers, espionage adventures and murder mysteries with you. Here’s the latest new publications from indie authors and bestselling big names, from hardboiled pulp fiction to Nordic noir, spy stories to high-tech thrillers, police procedurals and political conspiracies. Expect the unexpected!
THE RUSSIAN HEIST by Robb T White Meet Dimitri, a Russian thug, who can’t quite believe his luck when he stumbles across an incompetent plot to steal millions of dollars in small denomination notes. The home-grown gang of small-town misfits he meets comprises a disgruntled armoured-car guard, his promiscuous wife, their loser of a son, and an alcoholic professor of economics. Hijacking their heist should be simplicity itself for the psychopathic killer… but he reckoned without the skills of the Special Agent assigned to hunt him down. Crackling dialogue delivered in hardboiled style.
Apocalypse Now…Jacob’s Ladder…Scarface…The God Father… I’m tossing out movies that were so so hard for me to watch, but were done so so well that they of course, stick with me visually and emotionally. I’m doing that because The Good Kill hits me in the gut the same way those classic movies did. . .

I’m happy to announce the release of my fifth book, a short story collection entitled: LEAVE: And Other Stories Short and Shorter.
Within the collection, there are 30 stories new and old. Some are short in length as are traditional short stories, and some are shorter in length, as are the more contemporary flash fiction stories. Some were written as recently as this past winter; others, as long ago as the early ’90s. Many have been published previously on my website and other places, but there are several new stories that have not yet been released until now.
Links to all the health-related articles that I have written and posted here can be found near the end of the book.
Finally, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of HOW NOT TO DIE: In 13 Easy Steps will be donated monthly to my wife’s and my favorite charities and organizations committed to the curing and caring of those suffering from cancer and lung diseases.
I hope you enjoy the book.
Note: Even if you don’t have a Amazon Kindle or Fire, you can still read all Kindle products on your computer, tablet, or phone by downloading one of their free reading apps here.
UPDATE: You can download LEAVE: A Short Story for any ereader format for free here.
But if you want to read them for free, you have until the end of this week, Sunday, December 21, 2014. After which they will be taken off-line – all of them: short stories and flash fiction – and will be consolidated, along with new, unpublished work, in a short story collection.
I’m not sure when the new collection will be released – hopefully soon (depending on how my constant thumb wrestling match with Mr Procrastination goes) – but I’ve been planning on this for a long time and I’m pretty excited about it.
