Excerpt:

“You know a lot about automobiles, Mr. Riley?” asked Mictlan.

James shrugged. “No. Not really,” he said.

“And yet you seem very familiar with the mechanics of this vehicle of yours.”

“Well, yeah. It's my car.”

The doctor scrawled something in his notes. “Interesting,” he replied.

“What is?” sputtered James. He was feeling light-headed as the drug made itself known once more.

The doctor stared at him. His cold eyes seemed to probe James's very soul which seemed to cause his to shiver. “Oh, it's nothing that concerns you right now. We'll talk more about this matter later. What is important at the moment is filling in the gaps, and there are so many that need filling. So many. Now, please, continue.”

What if a man lost his moral compass between right and wrong, good and evil, mental stability and insanity?

John Corbin has been investigating, catching, and convicting murderers, rapists, and pedophiles for twenty years as a Seattle detective. But lately, someone has been beating him to the punch and eliminating these vile criminals before he can apprehend them. John is learning that there is a thin line between innocent or guilty, good or evil, alive or dead.

By definition, a thin line is a very narrow division between two alternatives. Some being exact opposites, while others are separated by the narrowest of threads. This novel follows this definition to the letter. In life, many situations aren't just black or white. There is usually a modicum of grey to fill in the space. Who is right? Who is wrong? Who is good? Who is evil? Perhaps everyone at one time or another lies somewhere in the middle.

A Thin Line is a tale that will immediately draw you in and keep you guessing. A suspenseful psychological thriller with twists and turns that will toy with your mind and emotions, driven by a chilling narrative that builds the tension right up until its explosive conclusion.

Excerpt:

By the time John and Todd had arrived at the Northgate Mall, it had already been shut down and closed off. No way in. No way out. The perp had taken a light machine gun into the mall and open fired on the unsuspecting consumers. There were bodies splayed from the Sunglass Hut to the food court, blood everywhere, a few already dead and another ten to twenty seriously injured. The perp had taken a hostage and barricaded himself inside Victoria's Secret. Why he did it, no one had discovered yet. The police were setting up in the Bath and Body Works directly across from Victoria's Secret. John and Todd entered through the back entrance that connected to the parking lot. “Good morning. I’m Detective Corbin, and this is Detective McGrath,” John said as he approached the group of officers huddled together discussing tactics.

“Hello detectives, we were instructed to hand the lead over to you two. I am Officer Wilson. This is Officer Taft, Officer Bianco, and Officer Getz.”

“Good morning, officers,” Todd said.

“What does he want?” John asked.

“He has asked for safe passage out and a car waiting for him.”

“Why?” John asked. “He had that before he shot up the mall. I’m not buying it. It’s just a diversion. He has other plans.”

“Sir, he claims once he is out he will free the hostage. We shouldn't do anything to disrupt the hostages’ safety.”

“I will consider your thoughts,” John said. “Any info on the perp or the hostage? Identities?”

“He is in his thirties. Caucasian. No ID, yet. Female hostage. Twenties. No ID. “

“Alright. I need communication with him,” John said.

Reviews:on Amazon:

This story is one to make you think about right and wrong and how easy it is to step over that "thin line" that divides them. Are there crimes so horrific that it's okay to take justice into your own hands? The killer certainly thinks so. You often hear, "Make the punishment fit the crime." If the monsters you come across in this story knew what their punishment would be, I bet they'd have had second thoughts about doing the beastly things they did. And yes, some of them will make you ill thinking about it. If you're sensitive to the cruelty one person can do to another human or an animal, you might want to pass on this book. Despite some editing hiccups, this is a book that kept my interest. The further I got into it, the more intense it became, with plenty of unexpected outcomes.

on Amazon:

The Thin Line is an accurate name for this vigilante crime novel. The law doesn’t always equate to justice. The separation in between right and wrong and retribution is indeed a thin line. The author shows us a detective with an uncanny knack for honing in on the bad guys. That skill is often brought out by his conversations with his bartender.
Once the stage is set and we find out the victims that detective is investigating are perpetrators of heinous crimes then us, the reader, starts to lose a little empathy for them. But, whoever is killing them is also an animal and that’s where the intrigue and the provocative thought process kicks in.
I found the book stimulating and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

on Amazon:

I believe that the goal of every writer regardless of what genre they write is to write a book that will stay with the reader after the last page.
You will read this book and in certain chapters, it will be so disturbing that you will wonder what is wrong with the guy writing this book, why is this book so DARK. Then you will stop and realize that crimes like this happen every single day. The author just finds a way of forcing you to deal with them.

Nature vs Nurture is one of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology, with no clear answer. This book will challenge all your beliefs. What causes one person to cross that line, is it a gut instinct, or something more?

After each chapter. you will ask yourself what could possibly happen next and how does this all tie together.

If Psychological Suspense is what you’re looking for this book delivers. I can only hope we get to revisit some of the main characters in a second book.

Excerpt:

He was making for the door. At first, Shamus thought it was Father Malone. But why would the priest be running down the aisle towards the exit?

Shamus called after him, “Malone? Malone, it's me, Shamus. What are you doing father?” The man stopped briefly before entering the narthex. He was tall and heavyset, unlike Malone.

Shamus shouted. “Hey, you! Stop right there. Whatever you're doing. Stop!” But the man was gone before he had finished speaking. Shamus gave chase, but by the time he got into the narthex, the main doors were wide open, and the man was long gone. Shamus ran outside into the wind and rain. But the only thing he saw was two ravens leaving their perches in an old oak tree, at the far end of the pathway. They seemed to be heading north, right into the heart of the storm.

READ MORE

Disheartened, Shamus went back inside and searched the building for any sign of Malone. But he was nowhere to be seen. However, what he found sent shivers down his spine.

The stone altar, which was not to be touched, had been broken in half, its religious paraphernalia cast to the floor and scattered about. On the inside of the broken altar was an empty cavity, large enough to fit a book or at least part of one. The church was nearly 300 years old, so whoever placed “whatever” inside the alter had done so a long time ago.

Humans have always been obsessed with aging and death. Throughout history, the quest for a way to remain forever young has consumed mankind. What if two men stumbled upon a way to ensure eternal youth? What if it changes their lives, not only for the better, but in ways they never could have imagined?

Immortal is a story filled with adventure, mystery, and thrilling twists. Follow these men as they stumble upon not only their greatest discovery, but possibly their ultimate undoing.

Excerpt:

Daniel woke to Tim’s pleading.
“Daniel are you awake? I keep hearing footsteps in the hallway.”
Daniel glanced at the bed-side clock. “It’s 3:00. Go back to sleep.”
“No, seriously, go check it out.”
“Why me?”
“Wait, listen.”
Daniel got up, walked to the door and put his ear against the wood. What he heard sent chills down his spine. Slow, deliberate footsteps coming from the end of the hallway. Too slow to be an actual person. Too deliberate to be the gait of someone out for a late stroll.
“Holy shit, dude.”
“What the fuck is it? Go check.”
“Why me, you coward?”
“You brought us here. It was your idea. You need to go check it out.”
“Why don’t we just go back to sleep? The steps obviously aren’t meant to do us any harm.”
“How do we know that?”
“Because they haven’t tried to get into our room yet.”
“Yet? Maybe you can accept yet.

You seem to like ghosts. I on the other hand, despise the whole concept.”
Suddenly the steps ceased exactly in front of their door.
“Daniel, what the fuck!” Tim whispered.
Daniel reached for the doorknob.
“Wait, don’t,” Tim whispered hoarsely.
Daniel put a finger up towards his frightened friend. Slowly he turned the knob and eased the door open. Tim pulled the covers over his head. Daniel stepped into the hall.

Reviews:on Amazon:

A Unique and Thrilling Read.

Immortal is unlike any novel I’ve previously read. The author seamlessly combines mystery, suspense, and philosophy into a superb tale about life, death, and everything in between. I highly recommend this novel.

on Amazon:

Can we reverse the aging process by thoughts and actions?

Very impressive novel, never mind first novel! David tells a well-rounded story and makes his characters real and compelling. I like the shorter chapters as it kept me wanting to keep turning the pages and see what happened next. Add in two major surprises and David took me for quite a ride. Looking forward to what comes next!!

Most debutantes meet their intendeds at polite societal gatherings, not over a duel in Hyde park. However, Greyland Kingston is not your typical young lady, and her family is far from conventional.

Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, is about to find out how unique the family is when he becomes unwittingly entangled with the newly arrived Kingston's from New Orleans—one family member in particular. With her spirited personality and innocent aversion to all things proper, Greyland Kingston completely throws him off his well-established game.

The gossip fans start to flutter when Greyland, her two older brothers and distinguished father, make their debut. Who is this family? How do they know the Queen? Why does the patriarch look like the ghost of the long-ago Plantagenet King, Edward the IV?

Trouble ensues in the form of jealous women, ambitious men, and a vengeful Irish clan. Alexander quickly finds that having Greyland for his own will come at a steep price…

And he must risk everything to keep her protected.

Excerpt:

The sound of thundering hooves trampling over the earth brought Alex’s mind right back to the present. All three men jerked their heads toward the intrusion. A bay steed burst through the bush carrying a wild-eyed girl. Her beautifully carved slender legs were exposed up to her knees and she was missing one of her slippers.

The horse immediately sensed the wolf and reared straight up. Surprisingly, the bareback rider managed to hug tight to the beast’s neck and stayed on. As the front hooves made contact with the ground—and before the horse could rise in protest again—the girl catapulted off the side and unsuccessfully grabbed for the reins. The mare bolted away.

“Damn!” she said, simply annoyed, as if she had lost a shilling rather than a thoroughbred.

“What on earth!” Perkin’s previous calm appearance all but shattered into a thousand pieces in front of them.

READ MORE

“Is that a wolf?” The girl’s sites fixated on Malikite, a glint in her bright eyes, her breathing coming hard, causing her small breasts to rise and fall, threatening to escape a much-too-slack bodice.

Alex stared. Who on earth had helped this poor woman dress? Clearly a dressing-maid with a vengeance. Unless the young lady before them was newly escaped from the asylum. Which might explain the entry.

The girl was completely disheveled. A twig dangled from her raven-black curls. Windblown pink cheeks decorated her milk-white skin and a bead of perspiration highlighted her cupid-bow lips. Her eyes were like the palest green of the sea, and they raged as wild as a developing storm. Never in his wildest dreams had he ever thought a woman could be this...inspiring. Captivating. Alive! She had to be from the asylum, Alex concluded. Someone’s daughter or young bride that had lost her wits and had to be committed.

Reviews:Reviewer on Amazon wrote:

I was impressed from the beginning! A question was posed- What really happened to the two young princes of York, who were held prisoner in the tower of London by their ambitious uncle following the death of their father, King Edward of York? And, of course, the book does answer that question, quite splendidly in my opinion, for a debut book!
Under His Protection has all the things I look for in a book. Swoon-worthy men, feisty females, descriptions that put you in the room, an exciting story and just enough romance to liven things up! The main characters are all written with great detail and a vast array of emotions are captured.
I must admit to falling a bit in love with most of the characters, and found myself utterly enchanted with this book.
There was no evidence of any grammatical errors, the time line flowed well and the book moved at a very fast clip. I look forward to reading more from this author!

Reviewer on Amazon wrote:

Wow!! What a great book, it was very fast-pace but well written. I love reading historian books like this, I haven’t read one in a while but I’m glad I got to read this book. The author does a fantastic job with the details of the storyline and the character development. Reading this book made me feel as if I was right alongside the characters. The book starts off intense with a brawl. It was very exciting and It had me gasping. But after that the story unfolds into a great romance. It has some twist and turns, which made the story even more exciting. I love Alex and Greyland, they have to be my new favorite book couple. I don’t want to give any of the storyline away but this book is a must read, and this author is fantastic at what she does. I will definitely be reading more of this author’s book she is very talented. Thank you for writing a wonderful book.

Reviewer on Amazon wrote:

This is my first time reading a historical romance. Wow this book drew me in from the beginning. This a fast pace book. I had all kinds of emotions. Stacey Von Haegert wrote this book so that I felt like I was Greyland Kingston. When Greyland met Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, it was love at first sight. Alexander is handsome, strong and Nobel. Swoon. He's exactly what every woman wants. This book leaves you wanting more. Thank goodness this is the first of a trilogy. I recommend this book to every romance and historical reader.

A wolf without a mate. A witch who doesn’t date.

Kingsley gave up on meeting his fated one until Eva walked into his life and threw him a curveball—a puzzling dilemma he doesn’t know how to resolve. Her cheery laughter thrills him, her generous curves devour him, and her scent…dear God, her scent undoes him.

Eva had given up on men, but there is something about Kingsley she can’t resist. He is persistent, driven, affectionate, and different from the men in her past. But Eva is dangerous… Still, the Artic Wolf won’t take no for an answer, but witches and wolves don’t mix...

Excerpt:

Slapping his hands over his quivering nose, threatening to elongate into a full-fledged snout, he tried to hide the effect of the delicious siren that caused transformation to his physical features.  Her essence wreaked havoc within him, stirring up the beast inside and threatened his true self to break free.  He breathed out a long exhale, inhaled slowly, and then blew out the air he withheld, once again until he couldn’t take anymore.  Lifting from his seated position, he forced his legs to move toward the back of the church instead of what he wanted to do, which was slide over three chairs to sit next to the delicious morsel he itched to savor.  One foot in front of the other he willed himself forward, pacing away from her, though his heart balked at his escape and his taut nerves protested each laborious step.  He caught her gaze following him as he stalked through the endless hallway.

  Ignoring his rational mind urging him to ignore her, he glanced back at her to find her shy away from him with a partial smile.

Gods of thunder.  Her smile could bring warriors to their knees!

Where is Gabriel Clay?

The search is on for missing twelve-year-old, Gabriel Clay. Few know Gabriel has a secret. Dangers are built-in with his secret. Seasoned detectives, Ben Schwartz and Al Di Natale have joined the rest of Boston in what many call a fool’s errand. The Boston area the boy and his grandmother live in is plagued with drugs and violence. However, the school he attends, George Washington Carver Charter School, offers a first-rate education and an outstanding basketball program.

Wounded Army captain, Ty Douglass, a graduate himself, returns from Afghanistan and joins the hunt. Douglass connects with old friends, Solomon Greer and Charles O’Toole, aka Tool. They share a tragedy from their youth; the unsolved murder of a friend. Empty Doorways has many secrets. Gabriel Clay has his, City Councilor Marty Doyle has his own, and Douglass wonders if Greer and Tool, whose illegal business is becoming more treacherous, know more about their friend’s death than they are admitting. In order to solve this case, the two detectives must risk their lives to uncover the secrets.

Otherwise, there will be more empty doorways unfilled because loved ones are never coming home.

Excerpt:

His blue police light flashing on the dash, Di Natale pushed his Mustang up to 80. Ahead was the exit for Dorchester Bay. Di Natale had forgotten his LED flashlight. In a pinch, he’d use the little light on his smart phone to make the arrest. He wished he had his Army night vision goggles. He felt prepared, though. His mission was to confirm if the tip about the shipment was real. Then he’d call in help.

But it was risky and not sanctioned by police procedures. He should have informed his superiors before he left.  If a professional killer was overseeing the delivery, Di Natale could get himself killed and the killer gets away. Would he be doing this on his own, if he was still with his wife Donna and son Chris? Maybe not. Without his family, which he was losing with the divorce, he had less to lose. He drove onto the road to the beach and yacht club. He put his police light back into the glove box.

READ MORE

Di Natale had on his ballistic vest, with pockets for four full magazines and his cell phone. Clipped to his vest shoulder strap was a walkie talkie on a police frequency. On his patrolman’s belt rested his holstered Glock 9mm, a set of cuffs, and a Spyderco knife in a scabbard. He wore hiking boots with dark wool socks, black jeans, a black sweatshirt under the vest, a dark blue nylon rain jacket, with green neon letters, P-O-L-I-C-E on the back, and a blue Boston PD baseball cap. He slowed the Mustang to look for a spot near the coordinates Hernandez gave him. Close enough, he  parked, the beach and the ocean in front. He smelled salt in the wind. He got a call.

“I’m on my way, Mr. Citizen Soldier,” said Schwartz. He was pissed. “We should call in SWAT and alert Boston PD.”

“Right, except won’t we look like the tail end of a baboon when all we got to show for this tip is sand in everyone’s shoes? Besides, if we make this arrest, we might get promotions.”

“Unless they’re posthumous,” said Schwartz.

Alec’s beast emerged as the young rogue spit at him. Eyes red and fangs bared, he screamed to the heavens, “There is no master named Angel. Kill him!” He watched as a frenzy of warriors tore into him, ripping his limbs free, tearing his head from his body, and leaving nothing recognizable when they were done. Angel. Who the fuck was Angel? And what hell was about to rain down on us now?

Shade watched as the blood spattered, and he turned his back and walked outside for a smoke. He was done for the night and ready to get the hell home to a shower and his woman.

Alec saw the warriors ripping the rogue to shreds and followed Shade outside to find him leaning against the wall, smoking a cigarette. “I know every vampire master on every continent. There is no master named Angel. Does Angel mean anything to you?”

Whether in primitive days or the ends of civilization, these poor fools find themselves in the worst straits their lifetime had to offer. A gardener. A political writer. A prisoner. A slave. A detective. They’ve all made their beds in the world, but some aren’t ready to lie in them just yet.

Some will drag the world down with them if they can.

Excerpt:

The boy with the green eyes stomps over, Aaron at his heels. “What in the hell is going on?” the boy barks. I note how his rifle is still slung across his back–he must not see us as a threat–but I’m not waiting around to find out for sure. I stand and grip Taylor’s arm again, this time harder. She tries to tear it away, but I’m latched on. She grunts in frustration. “Stop!” I yell at the boy, my shrill voice echoing through the woods. Amazingly, he listens. “I’m two seconds away from teleporting us out of here if you take another step,” I lie.

Understanding sweeps across his face, then awe. It settles into caution.

Aaron holds up his hands in surrender, asking, “Can I at least go break up the boys before they kill each other?”

I hesitate, reluctantly nod. Their sparring sounds like two disgruntled hogs – ear-splitting and brutal. I don’t need another dead friend. Besides, Aaron knows I wouldn’t leave without him. “Then we’ll talk about all this.”

I ignore her.

“You can let go of her, ya know,” the green-eyed boy says. “None of this is necessary.”

I flash him a deadly look. Like I believe anything he has to say. I’ll give them a chance to explain, but I have the upper hand…or so they think. As far as they know, I can get us out of here whenever I want.

While Aaron tries to break up the fight, the bearded man in flannel eyes me. The Changer woman whispers in his ear. I get a better look at her. She reminds me of Blythe in a way, with her silver-laced dreads and laugh lines around her mouth and eyes, but she’s sturdier. Broader. And her irises are celery green.

“Ow!” Cole howls.

We turn to see Aaron twisting Cole’s arm behind his back. Cole falls to his knees. “You gonna chill out, man?” Aaron asks, but he’s not menacing about it. It seems to pain him.

Cole growls but nods, wincing.

The man he attacked staggers to his feet, blinking his one good eye, the other one already swelling shut. Blood drips from his nose and over his lips. “Fuck,” he stammers, blood spraying. He’s lost his hat somewhere in the fray, mud smeared up one side of his face and matting his blond hair.

Cole appears to be untouched, minus a few scrapes and sprigs of foliage in his dreads. His massive shoulders heave with exhaustion. He gave it everything he had. Aaron can’t help but chuckle humorlessly. “I guess you paid attention during. L...” He stops himself from saying his name. A shadow passes over his features. “Training.”

COLLAPSE

What a great ending to this series. Mira, Cole and Taylor were amazing. To keep fighting after all that happened in book two—respect. There was a chance for humanity to redeem itself at the end of this—and I honestly did not know if that would happen. I’d like to think that people would see the error of their ways and do the right thing, but today’s climate demonstrates otherwise. I was really happy with how this wrapped up. Many were lost along the way, but I was glad those who remained got the ending they did. Such a great series.
