Karen J Mossman's World of Stories

Excerpt

Rawden smiled again, a slow patient kind of smile. “A year away from this place has done you good. You look prettier than ever.”

She hated the way he looked at her; hated the way his belly squeezed into his trousers. “I couldn’t marry you, Rawden. You know that.”

“I always live in hope.”

“Blackmail is a dirty game,” she reminded him.

“Blackmail? Come on,” he clicked his tongue. “Blackmail is a dirty word, little Shelb.”

She hated the way he said her name like that. It felt like slim spilling over here. She looked around, but they were alone. It was unnerving. She didn’t trust him. He was capable of anything.

“My Pa was sober when I went home,” she said, changing the subject as her heart thumped.

Losing Mary-Jo hit him badly,” said Rawden, and she wasn’t sure what he meant by that. Mary-Jo’s death had hit everyone badly. This was a small town. People took things personally. The shock of a death would reverberate for a long time.

“What about Ricky? Have you charged him?” she asked.

“Not yet. He’ll crack. His type always does.”

“Not if he’s innocent, he won’t,” she pointed out.

“Even if he’s innocent. But he isn’t. He did it, all right.” Rawden sounded confident.

Description

A city financier dies leaving millions locked away in secret accounts. His son looks forward to a fortune but there’s a catch, the will.

Lurking behind this cover is a really good short story.  I was asked by a friend to read his book. I don’t normally accept books to review, but the fact it was a short story, and I liked the author, swayed me to download it.

Harry has a missing stepbrother, and in order to satisfy the conditions of his father’s will, George Baumann must find him. The story was well written and succinct, and I liked it for that. It got straight to the point without any fluffing about. The author told the taile well and I really enjoyed it, especially when what happened was something I wasn’t expecting. I like a story that takes me somewhere I don’t expect.

When I first saw the cover, I thought it was an audio book, as the dimensions were different from the normal size. I also thought the man on the right was a young Martin Clunes. I know what its supposed to represent, but it doesn’t do justice to a good story.

When you have an hour to kill, then its perfect and whats even more perfect is how you can download it for free if you’re a member of kindle unlimited.

SNEAK PEEKS –

Vengeance by John Ling

Maya Raines hated the idea of walking into a trap, but she decided to do it anyway. She was dressed in a Muslim robe — long and loose and rustling in the wind. Her face was covered by a veil. She carried a grocery bag as she moved along the sidewalk, being careful not to trip on the pockmarked concrete and scattered rubble. All around her, ominous black flags hung from the shopfronts and soared from the rooftops, declaring the rise of an Islamist caliphate. And just ahead, a roadblock had been set up, manned by jihadi fighters. A modified pickup truck — a technical — was parked on the intersection, with a machine gun mounted on its rear bed. Maya could hear Arabic being spoken in the distance. It sounded harsh and strident; completely different to the gentle melodic rhythm of the Malay language that she was used to. These men were foreign Sunnis. They had come from as far afield as Egypt and Libya, drawn to Malaysia by the promise of killing local Shiites. Maya felt the slow burn of anxiety in her stomach…

Facing the Past Excerpt by Alexa Padgett

“Hank. Thirteen hours. At dawn, Jonathan, gone for thirteen hours.”

Hank turned toward Nancy, his look hollow. Nothing moved across his face, through his eyes. He tilted his head, marginally interested as she swallowed then gasped for air. Hank closed his eyes. “I can’t see any better in the dark than they can,” he said. “You heard the detective say they brought in the dogs. A helicopter from Fort Worth. It’s a full-scale search, almost everyone in town was out looking till it got too dark.”

A faint hum. Louder, a thwap, thwap overhead, a blinding spotlight. Again.

“They could miss him from up there.”

“We’ve already missed him,” Hank shot back, eyes glinting in the semi-darkness.

Nancy shrank back, away from him.

He lowered his head nearly to his knees. Inhaled, exhaled. “My son.”

Cicadas hummed, pressing their bodies against the house. Nothing could hold them together. Not with Jonny missing.

A whippoorwill called. Hank stood there, between the foyer and the living room where Nancy huddled.

“What are we going to do?” she asked him.

Another pass from the helicopter. A dog barking.

Hank hesitated again before seeming to consciously lift his leg to step into the room.

He lay his hand on her shoulder, fingers against her collarbone, his face telling Nancy he was too used up to do more as darkness crowded out the faint porch light.

My to-read list always gets bigger and I tend to swap it about. So today I thought I about what I was doing and put them in order, although I think there is a fifth one but, I don’t want to overwhelm myself.

And having done this, I find myself not reading as much as I usually do. Having a year- old puppy and a book coming out this month, tends to be restrictive. I’m a quarter into the first book. It’s good, but hasn’t clicked yet. When it does, my promised chapter at a time will get bigger until every free moment I am reading. Is it like that with you?


Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 12.41.34A savage murder. A copycat killer on the loose? Can Inspector Drake catch the killer?

When Inspector Drake is called to the holiday home of eminent barrister and recently appointed judge, Nicholas Wixley, he is faced with a grisly sight. Wixley’s body has been badly mutilated and staged to resemble a scene from the feared serial murderer – The Alphabet Killer. The only problem is, the perpetrator for those murders is already behind bars”

Drake and the team embark on a frantic investigation to identify the copycat killer and warn other potential victims – all of whom Drake suspects are linked to the previous Alphabet case. But when a friend of Wixley’s is found murdered on his yacht, Drake begins to suspect the copycat link is a red herring to throw them off the scent”

And when another murder takes place, Drake begins to question everything he knows about this case and his possible suspects. Now with his own reputation and the integrity of the Wales Police Service on the line Drake cannot afford to make any more mistakes.uld hook the reader and tell what your book is about and why they should bother reading it.

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 12.36.17Well, hello, Sugar, my name is Joanna…
That’s the introduction that all my victims get. It’s nice to be polite.
Even serial killers have manners.

I know what I do isn’t normal, but I also know that I do the country a service.
And the world is better off with me in it. You’ll understand.
See, I was once the victim.
Hurt by the one who should have taken care of me.
Let down by the system that should have protected me.
Now I vow to help others, and if I have to hurt people to do it. I will.

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 12.47.41One empty bus seat. Two aching hearts. A future written by Fate…

When Raquelita Muro’s overbearing mother rips her and her little sister away from their beloved Papa, one tiny, rebellious corner of Raquelita’s heart is grateful that the bus is crowded, and the only seat left is out of Mama’s sight. Next to a handsome young man.

Matthew Buchanan’s beautiful traveling companion is more than something pretty to look at before he ships out for Viet Nam. Deep in her sad, whisky-colored eyes he glimpses a new dream to replace the ones he’s leaving behind. It breaks his heart to leave Raquelita in her tyrannical mother’s hands, but she gifts him with a token of love and a tender promise to exchange letters in secret.

But their first, shy “hello” has reached the ears of Fate. Fate is in the mood to see how far it can push two lonely hearts—to the brink of temptation, desperation, and despair—before they break. Perhaps beyond any hope of healing…
