GOLD MEDAL WINNER, 2012 READERS’ FAVORITE BOOK AWARDS

Mace Evans is single at thirty-eight. When her much unloved older sister, Shannon, declares that Mace is anti-social, she embarks on a journey to understand her condition; whether she was born that way or if it is the accumulation of thirty-eight years of unfortunate encounters with other humans and dogs.

For reasons unbeknown to Mace, she has an affair with a work colleague, which brings an unexpected end to her perfect marriage. And as if the self-imposed torture and regret is not enough, Mace endures ongoing judgment from her older sister and mother, which further exacerbates already tenuous relationships.

With support from her four best friends, merlot and pizza, and with guidance from her life coach and mentor, Oscar Wilde, Mace recovers to a degree, but in her quest to understand her anti-social ways, she finds herself wondering about the quality of the fabric that keeps her network of friends intact.

When Mace’s mother is diagnosed with cancer, Mace searches for common ground on which to connect before it…

Nicolas Crystan, struggling to cope with his traumatic past, shuffles through life keeping mostly to himself … until he has a disturbing daydream of a woman’s death.

What would you do if you awoke one morning to find the dead body of a stranger in your bedroom? Not only that, you have no memory of the past few days…

Nick Cortland is a successful New York City advertising executive who wakes up to a nightmare. He doesn’t remember his own name, doesn’t recognize the faces of anyone around him, there is a dead woman in his apartment, and a close friend has died suddenly in a tragic accident. The puzzle gets more complex by the hour as Nick struggles to piece together the holes in his memory, is questioned by police about a missing person, and becomes the target of a team of hired killers. Danger and mystery lurk around every corner, and as Nick soon discovers…the difference between friends and enemies is sometimes a very fine line.

*************************

For the first time in one volume, the three novels that introduced J. Carson Black’s remarkable Arizona DPS investigator, Laura Cardinal.

Laura Cardinal, a detective with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, troubleshoots homicide investigations in small towns where resources are scarce. She lives in a rented adobe house on a guest ranch in the desert. The ghost of her dead partner, Frank Entwistle, appears at the oddest moments—sometimes to help, and sometimes just to tell her how he would do it.

Everybody’s a critic.

DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, Book 1

“A superb debut…Welcome to a strong new voice in American Crime Fiction”

—T. Jefferson Parker, author of THE BORDER LORDS

Used to be kids played outdoors until time for dinner, now social media’s the new game in town. These days, they play on their smartphones. But with more freedom comes greater danger. Mobile devices and computers are a conduit into a child’s life, not just for friends but for those who intend harm. This is the message of J. Carson Black’s Daphne du Maurier Award-nominated thriller, DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN.

When Laura investigates the murder of a fourteen-year-old girl left in a town’s park band shell, she knows immediately what she’s up against: a cunning sexual predator. But why is she plagued by the abduction of a schoolmate eighteen years earlier?

In a runaway case that propels Laura from a lavish Tucson estate to the secretive heart of a north Florida town, she must confront the ghosts of her own past. Then another child goes missing—and Laura must race the clock to find her.

“A dark, brilliantly-plotted police procedural.”

—Midwest Book Review

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, Book 2

When a young couple on their honeymoon is found shot to death in a campground in Williams, Arizona, the consequences go far beyond a simple murder investigation. As the investigation unfolds, Laura uncovers a chilling portrait of the dark side of love. And when she learns of one victim’s ties to an underground organization called the Earth Warriors, she is plunged into a high-stakes conspiracy played out against the unforgiving backdrop of the Mojave Desert—where there are no second chances.

"Dark Side of the Moon takes you on a perilous descent into a shadowy underworld where light cannot reach, trust can be fatal, and the deepest truth is only another lie. Once again J. Carson Black delivers a harrowing nonstop thrill ride that will eclipse every other suspense novel you read this year!”

—New York Times bestselling author Michael Prescott

“Black never lets up the pace for an instant.”

—SF Site

THE DEVIL’S HOUR, Book 3

“J. Carson Black’s THE DEVIL’S HOUR is a superior mystery novel in all respects. Fine prose, terrific suspense, believable characters, and one of the most unexpected and satisfying conclusions I’ve read in a long time. Highly recommended."

—John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of DAMAGE

In 1997, the disappearance of three young girls rocked the city of Tucson, Arizona. Eleven years later, one of those girls—Micaela Brashear—comes home, alive.

Detective Laura Cardinal worked homicide for Arizona DPS, but now she’s been moved to the Open-Unsolved Unit. With a new job and a new partner who questions her every move, Laura pieces together Micaela’s fragmented memories in the hope she will learn the whereabouts of the other two children.

When a man walking his dog finds the bones of a child in a shallow grave on the mountain above town, it becomes clear to Laura that Micaela was the lucky one.

But the killer isn’t through yet, and after the fiery death of someone close to Laura, she realizes she faces an implacable enemy.

W is for Wasted (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)

Genre(s): Literature & Fiction, United States, Mystery Thriller & Suspense, Mystery, Women Sleuths

Rating: 4.5 – {2 Reviews}

Price may change without notice! Due to international copyrights, not all titles will be available outside of the United States.

*************************

Of the #1 New York Times–bestselling Kinsey Millhone series, NPR said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.”

Two dead men changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I’d never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue.

The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He’d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He’d been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone’s name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.

But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. And before long at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity. “And just like that,” she says, “the lid to Pandora’s box flew open. It would take me another day before I understood how many imps had been freed, but for the moment, I was inordinately pleased with myself.”

In this multilayered tale, the surfaces seem clear, but the underpinnings are full of betrayals, misunderstandings, and outright murderous fraud. And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised.

W is for . . . wanderer . . . worthless . . . wronged . . .

W is for wasted.

*************************

It was a dark and stormy night…
Inviting a group of women over for a night of Mahjong sounded like a good idea to new bride Alex Harris Van der Burg, but with a storm raging outside and a battle brewing between two of the players inside, things aren’t working out quite as planned. And then the lights go out adding one more catastrophe to the evening.
When a guest is discovered with Alex’s brand new cake knife, a wedding gift, stuck in her back, the party really starts to head downhill. With the roads closed and a bridge washed out, the Mahjong players are stuck in the “murder house” for the rest of the evening.
In the following days Alex is stumped to find a reason why a woman would be killed in her home, especially when only one person there had met her before, and that person happens to be the mother of Alex’s assistant, Millie Chapman.
With her detective husband away on a weekend camping trip that turns longer than expected, the entire town is talking about the young bride whose husband took off. Alex tries to shut out the rumors while snooping and sleuthing but when her nephew is involved in a hit and run, she wonders if the killer is after her and maybe she should just forget the whole thing.
Join the crazy cast in this, the fourth Alex Harris mystery, as they sift through clues that will lead to a shocking conclusion.
