Love is a Wounded Soldier

Love is a Wounded Soldier

Product Description

Despite growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, and having to cope with the untimely death of his mother, Robert Mattox has retained his innocence and idealism. He woos and marries his first love, Ellen, and it appears his life is set for a happily-ever-after ending.
But World War II is raging, and its vortex snatches him away from his young bride. He finds himself fighting in Europe, witnessing and participating in the unspeakable ugliness and brutality of war. His love for Ellen holds him back from utter despondency, and his will to fight and live draws strength from his desire to return home to her.
When he finally does return home to Kentucky, he’s exhausted, jaded, and scarred—inside and out. His worst fear is how Ellen will respond to the changes in him, but when he gets home he finds that Ellen is different, too—much different.
Can things between them ever be the same again? Or will their love be the war’s most tragic casualty?

Ace is on the run from everyone, it seems. He’s running from a busted Witness Protection Program assignment, an international collection of gangsters and arms merchants he pissed off working undercover, and worst of all—from his own scarred self-image and the nightmares that haunt him.

After two lonely years on the road he risks a short visit with his old friend, Granville Tubbs, who lives in the sleepy small town of Ferris’ Bluff, Arkansas. He hasn’t even had a tingle that anyone has been on his trail for almost a year. What could go wrong in a few days?

Excerpt

There wasn't really a book I wanted, though I could always find one. My mom had said once I'd learned to read, I hadn't stopped. From cereal boxes, to the newspaper, to just about any book that passed through my hands, I felt compelled to read. Lost in a book, I could tune out everything else. My mom could be yelling at me from the other end of the apartment or my sister badgering me with her constant "why" questions, and I would be oblivious to it all if I were lost in a book. It was my second favorite thing to do. After writing. Yet another way I was a lot like my mom. She had been a professor of history at East University in New York City, before she had decided to take her sabbatical. She would have loved this room.

So I paused for a moment, letting my eyes roam over the shelves. I was sure I'd examined them all in my time in the Special Collections Room. The only decent book had been that history of Weston City. It had been filled with photos, tons of remembrances from old-timers, and fun little tidbits about the town, like how a whole valley of farms had been flooded to make room for a reservoir. Legend was the farm families had been forced out as the water rushed in, covering up houses that now sat in watery silence at the bottom of the lake. Creepy. Of course, it was in the same book where I had read about Hiram and Hannah.

My eye caught something new. I reached up, then jerked my hand back. I thought I heard something, like a faint whirring sound. I held my breath and looked around, behind me, and to each side, just to be sure. Nothing. The sound had stopped so maybe I had just imagined it. I put my hand up again and gently placed my index finger on the spine of a book I'd never seen before. Could it be? Something in this section I had missed? It was a slim little book, wedged in tightly on the shelf. I had to use a bit of force to pry it out, but gently, since I could see the leather cover was starting to fray a bit.

The book slid out with a smattering of dust and a small shower of brown leather flakes. Almost as if I thought an alarm would go off, I looked around again. Funny, I couldn't shake the sense I was being watched. But there was only the sound of my own breathing as I turned the book over in my hands.

It was a reddish-brown volume, with an inlay of faded gold leaf tracing a sunken rectangular design. There was no title on it. Slowly I opened the cover and looked carefully at the first page. It was signed in faded ink, in flowery, old-fashioned lettering. I flipped through a few pages, feeling the corners start to crumble off, seeing more of the same writing. It was a diary.

I Kill Rich People: New Edition Released 11/27/14

I Kill Rich People: New Edition Released 11/27/14

Product Description

Re-released on 11/28/14, edited second edition.

Four shots and four New York billionaires are dead. The killer has disappeared without a trace. Long Island’s summer season shuts down as the body count mounts. No more yachting, dinners on the terrace, or charity galas. The Hamptons are empty. Having immense wealth suddenly isn’t fun, not while a silent and capable sniper is on the hunt.
He isn’t seeking attention. He isn’t after ransom. His motives are unknown. The only insight is found on index cards which show up in the mailrooms of major news stations saying “I KILL RICH PEOPLE”.
The donor whales scream at New York’s Mayor, Congressmen, and Senators for protection. But money and power won’t stop the shooter.
As the killing continues, a fan club grows for the shooter; the rich are suddenly the enemy, thanks mainly to Emerson Elliot, the radio shock jock who fans the flames. Elliot’s program exercises a populist voice that, to the ultra-rich, makes Elliot as threatening as the shooter.
While New York’s richest hide or die, a dozen law-enforcement agencies scramble for answers. Each agency is grabbing for newly-released federal funds and every one of them pursues its own agenda. Only Owen Cullen, NYPD’s lead detective, puts his life on the line to stop the shooter simply because that is the job. His job is to catch the killer, even as he is losing his own home to foreclosure. His family and friends might not understand, but Owen can’t afford to have second thoughts about saving billionaires. He has to do it; the job is who he is.
Owen and the select inter-agency unit around him begin to see some success while thousands of others are failing, but their momentum presses them toward a collision that some of them may not survive.

StreetCreds 2nd edition

StreetCreds 2nd edition

Product Description

StreetCreds is a look inside the world of street gangs and the cops that work them. I worked the street for many years before I entered the Gang Task Force, joining it with the idea that I could rise to the level of violence of any banger I encountered - a really stupid idea. I grew up in this city, and I worked its streets the best way I knew how, feeling that I had a firsthand understanding of what the citizens were experiencing. The increasing frustration at gang crimes, drive bys, robberies, never feeling safe with your kids in your own neighborhood - I wanted to do what I could to make that fear go away. Once I was inside the task force, though, the reality was a rude awakening. The task force was poorly managed and staffed by detectives mostly out for themselves, and the internal politics made success incredibly difficult and almost impossible - almost, but not quite. Witnessing bad cops, brutal crimes, and realizing the department had been compromised. I left the unit two years later, severely broken, edgy, and dangerously damaged. StreetCreds is the story of how all that came to be. Hold on for a reality check. ~ Zach
StreetCreds has been awarded a Gold medal in the 2014 Readers Favorite International book awards contest in the true crime genre. 
StreetCreds is a finalist in the 2015 Chanticleer Clue book awards contest.
StreetCreds has been ranked #2 in true crime best sellers on Amazon.com
