    Enjoy a journey through the first four unhuman tales in this comedy cozy mystery fantasy omnibus: 
    I - Inspector Hobbes and the Blood  
    Inspector Hobbes, a monstrous police detective, investigates grave, ghoulish goings-on. A mad pseudo vampire with the dagger of Vlad Tepes is behind robbery, and murder. It is a funny tale with a troll, human sacrifice, blood and great cooking.  
    Tim Campbell nominee for ABR Audiobook Listener Awards 2018 for narration of the Inspector Hobbes and the Blood audiobook.  
    II - Inspector Hobbes and the Curse  
    Andy becomes infatuated with a dangerously beautiful woman during Hobbes's investigations into sheep deaths and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants, which are apparently connected to a rash of big cat sightings; and something horrible seems to be lurking in the woods.  
    III - Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers  
    Unwelcome attention after foiling an armed robbery forces the Inspector away on holiday to the dangerous Blacker Mountains, where his accident-prone friend, Andy, stumbles across something shocking, before falling for an attractive widow.  
    IV - Inspector Hobbes and the Bones  
    Certain trouble lies ahead for Andy Caplet. Is the apparently charming young woman who attempts to seduce him merely setting him up for blackmail, or is something even more sinister afoot? Inspector Hobbes certainly believes so, and, though he's not the sort to worry, he is getting worried.

    Pulitzer Prize finalist: “A soaring literary epic about the forces that have driven us to the 9/11 age . . . relentlessly captivating” (Ron Charles, The Washington Post).   When humanitarian lawyer Tom Harrington travels to Haiti to investigate the murder of a beautiful photojournalist, he is confronted with a dangerous landscape riddled with poverty, corruption, and voodoo. It’s the late 1990s, a time of brutal guerrilla warfare and civilian kidnappings. The journalist, whom he knew years before as Jackie Scott, had a bigger investment in Haiti than it seemed. To make sense of her death, Tom must plunge back into his complicated ties to Jackie—and her mysterious past.   Shacochis traces Jackie’s shadowy family history from the outlaw terrain of World War II Dubrovnik to 1980s Istanbul. Caught between her first love and her domineering father—an elite Cold War spy pressuring her to follow in his footsteps—seventeen-year-old Jackie hatches a desperate escape plan. But getting out also puts her on the path that turns her into the soulless woman Tom fears as much as desires.   Set over fifty years and in four war-torn countries, The Woman Who Lost Her Soul is National Book Award winner Bob Shacochis’s masterpiece and a magnum opus. It brings to life an intricate portrait of catastrophic events that led up to the war on terror and the America we are today.

    Posadas County, New Mexico, is in the news. NightZone, a mammoth astronomy theme park, is bringing in jobs, media, and such new infrastructure as a slick narrow-gauge railway to transport tourists from the village of Posadas to the tramway running up the mesa to the project's site. And the Posadas High School girls' volleyball team is on a hot winning streak, exciting everyone.
    But more news, not good, breaks. Volleyball coach Clint Scott has been found gunned down in the girls' shower room, the victim of four bullets, one fired nearly point-blank into his heart. Dead for hours, killed soon after the end of last night's game. And, last night, a homegrown Banksy had tagged both one of the railway cars and a section of NightZone's giant radio telescope dish. Then, apparently, this young artist began work on a section of wall outside the girls' locker room at the high school - a project that was clearly dramatically interrupted.
    With morning come two strange incidents. Stacie Willis Stewart, a former Posadas volleyball star, locks up her baby and Jack Russell terrier in her Volvo, walks away to local superstore The Spree - and disappears. A former teacher spots the child and dog before the heat can kill them. Deputy Tom Pasquale, in The Spree's parking lot, where he's spotted a suspicious Illinois plate on a Ford Fusion, watched it all. He then leads a fruitless search for her inside the store. No luck - but he does score a man with an Elvis haircut and his wife when they return to the Ford with stories that don't add up.
    The lead on the murder is Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman, who's still able to call on the retired former sheriff, Bill Gastner - a good thing, for she is surprised by the arrival of her piano-prodigy son, Francisco, age 15, in a sleek Corvette driven some 1,000 miles by an 18-year-old beauty, a cellist. Their goal: to join the 100th birthday celebration for Estelle's mother.

    STANDING IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH - THE SWORD OF DAMASCUS 
    BOOK 3 OF 3 IN THE DEMON GORGE TRILOGY – THE FINALE 
    Gideon couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He was spellbound and awe-stricken. 
    The apparition glided nearer and nearer. The detective could now see clearly that the spirit was carrying in her arms an actual baby child, alive and well, one that was as beautiful as one of the cherubim of heaven with a yellow halo of light encircling its form. It was only the light that illuminated the woman’s form. 
    Gideon remained frozen, not moving a limb of his body. 
    The apparition glided over to the dry well. Then, with her back to Gideon, the baby clasped to her chest, and her head bent over the edge of the well, she looked down into the deep, dark shaft below her. 
    “Oh, my God,” Gideon whispered, “by all that is Holy!” cried the detective. “By the power of the Holy Spirit, be it ghost or flesh and blood, I will not allow her to throw that child into the well!” 
    And with that said, he began running up to the well where the woman or spirit stood, ready to kill another child. Finally, he got there where the radiant form of the woman with the baby in her hands and her eyes fixed on the depths of the well in front of her! 
    Gideon reached her, intending to seize her from behind and whirl her with the child from the brink of the dry well. But ---.”

    The survival saga of Allexa Smeth and the town of Moose Creek continues. Second in the smash-hit post-apocalyptic thriller series.  
     
    While the rest of the nation has begun the slow process of recovering from the devastating earthquakes of months earlier, the small town of Moose Creek is still suffering. The food bank and soup kitchen Allexa Smeth helped established to feed her community have closed, but the locals rally and find ways to feed themselves, leaving Allexa the luxury of taking care of just her small family. Hope is on the horizon, but still out of reach. 
     
    Attacked by a vicious few who would take her family’s most precious resource, Allexa Smeth fights back with her very being to protect her own, but it’s only the beginning of what’s to come. More earthquakes rock the nation and the perplexing sudden apathy of the town shocks Allexa into withdrawal when she realizes they are no longer heeding her warnings. 
     
    The lasting darkness they are plunged into doesn’t have anything to do with a light switch. 
     
    “Learning from survival fiction is one of my passions although I do recognize and accept that many of the scenarios are quite extreme. Still, as a prepper that is continually challenged by the pursuit of knowledge, I keep reading and keep playing the ‘what if’ game in my own mind. One of the best series of books for doing so is Deborah D. Moore’s The Journal series.” —Backdoor Survival
