The Perfect Murder

Publication Date: Today 🎉

Publisher: HQN

New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin is back with her most thrilling novel yet in the Maximum Security series—The Perfect Murder.

The eldest of the three wealthy Garrett brothers, Reese Garrett is in the middle of a major purchase for his multimillion-dollar oil and gas company, Garrett Resources. The Poseidon offshore drilling platform venture will greatly enhance the company’s value.

But when Reese is on a trip out to see the rig, his helicopter crashes, leaving him hospitalized and two men dead. It’s discovered the chopper was sabotaged, and Reese is determined to find out who’s behind the crash—and whether he was the intended target. Then, when his lover, Kenzie, is accused of her ex-husband’s murder—a man with a vested interest in the Poseidon deal—clues start pointing to a connection that puts Reese, Kenzie and her young son in the sights of a killer.

From the Texas heat to the Louisiana bayous, Reese and his brothers must track down the truth before the body count gets any higher.

Chapter One

Galveston, Texas: Last Day of July

Seconds after the chopper lifted off the pad, Reese felt the odd vibration.  Along with the pilot and co-pilot and five members of the crew, the Eurocopter EC135 was headed for the Poseidon offshore drilling platform. 

For a moment, the ride leveled out and Reese relaxed against his seat.  As CEO of Garrett Resources, the billion-dollar oil and gas company he owned with his brothers, he was always searching for the right investment to expand company holdings, the reason he was flying out to the platform.

For months he’d been working with Sea Titan Drilling, the owner of the offshore rig, to complete the five-hundred-million-dollar purchase, an extremely good value when the average price of a similar rig was around six-fifty. 

The vibration returned and with it came a grinding noise that put Reese on alert.  The men in the cabin began to glance back and forth and shift nervously in their seats.  A sharp jolt, then the chopper seemed to fall out of the sky.  It climbed again, began to dip and sway, dropped then climbed as the pilot fought for control.

The pilot’s deep voice rumbled through the headset.  “We’ve got a problem.  I don’t want you to panic, but we need to find a place to set down.” 

There was definitely a problem, Reese thought, as the vibration continued to worsen.  The chopper was out of control and the whole cabin was shaking as if it would break apart any minute.  His pulse was hammering, his adrenalin pumping.

 Along with the men in the crew who rode back and forth from the rig every few weeks, he stared out the window toward the ground.  They were no longer above the heliport.  Clearly the pilot was looking for an open space big enough to handle the thirty-six-foot blade span.  All Reese could see were the rooftops of warehouses and metal commercial buildings.

The chopper kept shaking.  The crew was grim-faced but resigned.  The pilot did something to take the pitch out of the rotors and the chopper started falling.

“No need to worry,” the pilot said.  “We’ll auto-rotate down.  I’ve done it a dozen times.”

Auto rotate down.  Reese knew the concept, the technique helicopter pilots used to land when the engine failed.  The trick was to find a safe place to hit the ground. 

Both engines went silent.  The blades were flat now, the wind whistling through them, tying his stomach into a knot.

“Brace for impact,” the pilot said.  Below them, Reese spotted an open flat slab of asphalt in the yard of a small trucking firm–the only possible landing site anywhere around.  Trouble was it didn’t look wide enough to handle the blades. 

At the last second, the pilot flared the helicopter in an effort to slow the descent, then the ground rushed up and the chopper hit with a jolt that wracked Reese’s whole body.

For an instant, he thought they were going to make it.  Then one of the spinning rotor blades hit the corner of a building and tore free.  The Plexiglas bubble shattered as the long metal blades exploded into a hundred deadly pieces, careening like knives through the air, slicing into buildings and the cabin of the helicopter. 

Reese didn’t feel the impact.  One moment he was conscious, then the world suddenly went black.

#NewRelease “HAN: Her Ruthless Mistake: 50 Loving States, Delaware (Ruthless Triad Book 4)” by Theodora Taylor

Han

This ruthless crimelord’s kindness comes with a price. Possession. Complete and utter.

JAZZ: I’m a determined dreamer–at least I used to be. I put all my dreams on hold and withdrew every penny from my savings account to pay the debt my ailing father owes to a local gang.

Except, according to the gang’s slimy leader, even my life savings won’t be enough to pay the enormous debt my dad’s accrued. And his leering gaze lets me know exactly how he wants me to pay the balance.

A ruthless stranger offers to pay my remaining debt. He’s a tattooed crimelord, a cold, beautiful animal who regards me with dead eyes. The price for this kindness? Possession. The complete and utter kind.

You’re mine, he informs me when I ask him why he did it, leaving me to figure out….

Is he my unexpected savior or my ruthless mistake?

HAN: I learned from a young age that women aren’t worth much. They don’t stay. They’re not loyal. They weaken you, then disappear at the first sign of trouble.

That’s why I don’t do relationships–especially with good girls who have no place in my criminal underworld.

I should stay away from her. Let her pay me back some other way.

But I can’t. She’s golden sunshine wrapped in a sexy little package, lighting up all the dark parts of my heart. And when she asks me why I did it, two words rise without thought or reason.

You’re mine.

She thinks I’m the mistake, but it’s the other way around. I don’t do relationships. I don’t even let women spend the night. But this one…

She has me breaking all of my rules.

#ReleaseBlitz “Harry Harambee’s Kenyan Sundowner” by Gerald Everett Jones

~~~

A Novel

Literary Fiction

Date Published: 6/29/2021

Publisher: La Puerta Productions

 

Intrigue on the white sands of the Indian Ocean. From the award-winning author of Clifford’s Spiral.

A lonely widower from Los Angeles buys a tour package to East Africa on the promise of hookups and parties. What he finds instead are new reasons to live.

Aldo Barbieri, a slick Italian tour operator, convinces Harry to join a group of adventuresome “voluntourists.” In a resort town on the Indian Ocean, Harry doesn’t find the promised excitement with local ladies. But in the supermarket he meets Esther Mwemba, a demure widow who works as a bookkeeper. The attraction is strong and mutual, but Harry gets worried when he finds out that Esther and Aldo have a history. They introduce him to Victor Skebelsky, rumored to be the meanest man in town. Skebelsky has a plan to convert his grand colonial home and residential compound into a rehab center – as a tax dodge. The scheme calls for Harry to head up the charity. He could live like a wealthy diplomat and it won’t cost him a shilling!

Harry has to come to terms with questions at the heart of his character: Is corruption a fact of life everywhere? Is all love transactional?

Harry Harambee’s Kenyan Sundowner is an emotional story of expat intrigue in Africa, reminiscent of The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene and The Constant Gardener by John le Carré.

Praise for Clifford’s Spiral (Independent Press Awards 2020 Distinguished Favorite in Literary Fiction)

We’ve seen and noted the comparison of this author by other reviewers to literary giants like Roth and Vonnegut. And we can’t disagree. Yet we feel there may be yet another strata for Gerald Everett Jones, who arguably is doing the best work of his career. We predict that he lacks only a mention in the The New York Review of Books or, better yet, Oprah, to become a nationwide best-selling author. Five-plus stars to Clifford’s Spiral, a true literary novel if ever there was one. We say in all seriousness that if you only read one novel this year, this should be it. – Don Sloan, Publishers Daily Reviews

Preacher Finds a Corpse (NYC Big Book Awards 2020 Winner in Mystery, IPA 2020 Distinguished Favorite in Mystery, Eric Hoffer 2020 Finalist in Mystery)

This is literature masquerading as a mystery. Carefully yet powerfully, Gerald Jones creates a small, stunning world in a tiny midwestern town, infusing each character with not just life but wit, charm, and occasionally menace. This is the kind of writing one expects from John Irving or Jane Smiley.

– Marvin J. Wolf, author of the Rabbi Ben Mysteries, including A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn.

#FREE “Total Fitness After 40: The 7 Life Changing Foundations You Need for Strength, Health and Motivation in your 40s, 50s, 60s and Beyond” by Nick Swettenham

cover

~~~

Finally discover the secrets to fitness that will transform your body and mind, even if you’ve never worked out a day in your life…

How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

Are you trapped in a body that leaves you unhappy and disappointed with what you see?

With the NIH estimating that more than 1 in 3 adults are overweight, you’re not alone.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Maybe you’ve resigned yourself to the thought that this is what life will be from now on. Society tells you that midlife is the time when you start to slow down and lose your physical potential, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.

The truth is, you have the power to change.

According to researchers at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, it’s never too late to start reaping the rewards of physical activity — regardless of your age.

While it isn’t possible to reverse aging entirely, taking the right approach to your health can have you looking and feeling younger than ever before.

You might have heard the phrase, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” but that limiting mentality won’t get you anywhere in life.

Instead, recognize your own abilities as you discover the secrets to healthful living.

In Total Fitness After 40, you will discover:

  • The research-based approach to fitness that has been identified as the most effective anti-aging exercise strategy
  • Strategies for overcoming negative self-talk — and how reprogramming your mind will optimize your physical and emotional health
  • How to learn to love exercise and embrace your new fitness regimen with excitement rather than dread
  • An exercise database with simple, easy to follow instructions and weekly fitness plans
  • How you can increase your strength level by up to 40% in just 12 months without any prior experience with resistance exercise
  • What the FITT principle is and how you can use it to create the ideal workout program for your specific fitness goals and abilities
  • Everything you need to know about nutrition, from building a balanced meal plan to calculating your exact caloric needs without using complicated math
  • The key to setting yourself up for success with goals that are measurable and realistic — and the crucial phrasing that will make all the difference

And much more.

If you’ve been waiting for a sign that it’s time to change your ways and stop making excuses, this is it. You don’t need time-consuming exercise classes or expensive personal trainers — all you need is the right perspective and understanding.

Your mentality and motivation are incredibly powerful tools when wielded correctly, and you can kickstart your fitness journey starting today.
