By way of reblogging this very well-written and intriguing review of Jennifer L. Place’s amazing sounding book, one of which I will def put on my “Want to Read” list as soon as I finish up here, I’d like to introduce you to my new friend Lee Hall, the author of this very well-written review.
Lee was kind enough to respond to my call for Indie Author recommendations and I am the better man for it. Not only am I now aware of Jennifer’s horror novel which I look forward to reading very much as it seems to be right in my wheelhouse, I am now aware of Lee’s fantastic website full of other such well-written and intriguing Indie Author book reviews; and, just as important if not more so, I am now aware of his own fine-looking list of what I am sure to be deep, verisimilitude-inducing reads, particularly his book Teleporter which is about a twenty-something slacker turned superhero, and which is now def on my “Want to Read” list:
So do yourself a favor and check out Lee’s website chock full of wonderful things that are sure to pleasure the discerning reader…
And do me a favor by letting me know what other awesome Indie Author books I should be reading…
Urban exploration horror filled with tension and some truth…
Building 51 follows the events of seven friends as they embark on an exploration excursion. Their destination the Hudson River State Hospital for the Insane; a real place with a real history that can be described as harrowing to say the least.
Exploration of abandoned places is a specialist niche in the genre of horror and one which I very much enjoy. Films such as ‘Grave encounters’ and ‘House on Haunted Hill’ come to mind but in terms of books, Building 51 is the benchmark and makes for a roller coaster tension filled read.
Fusing elements of real history and the paranormal make this story and the characters in it feel like something is lurking and watching them. Something is and this gradually becomes apparent manifesting itself in a range of unique and creepy ways.
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. . .

Sean “Big Mac” McKnight, one of my favorite characters from The Good Kill, is a huge Slayer fan; therefore, in his honor and in honor of the book’s release tomorrow, it is Slayer’s “Repentless, — a term which, coincidentally, could also be the novel’s theme — that we shall proceed to rock it out to. . .
A former Navy SEAL turned vigilante hitman already in the crosshairs of corrupt Russian agents finds himself in even deeper trouble after rescuing a sex trafficking victim against her will just as she is about to be delivered into the hands of an unscrupulous corporate mogul, an impetuous and dangerous man who will not be denied his purchase. . .
