The Lou Fleener Private Eye Series: Books 1-3 (affiliate link)
MEET THE AMAZING LOU FLEENER, PRIVATE EYE.
He’s short and not so good-looking and maybe not the best dresser, but he can fight like Ali and dance like Astaire.
And solve the oddest collection of crimes you’ve ever imagined. Lou and his best friend Monk are here with their first ever collection of three best-selling novels full of suspense, thrills, romance and a humor.
Missing Amanda (Book 1)
Lou and Monk get hustled into finding the kidnapped daughter of Chicago mob boss, Duke Braddock. Thing is, there’s no kidnapping, there’s no daughter. It’s all a scam to still up a gang war to get Braddock’s guy named mayor.
Monk’s got the brains, Lou’s got the moves and newcomer Cassidy Adams provides the looks.
Blackbird: A Tommy Donovan Story (A Tommy Donovan Novel) (affiliate link)
They work in the shadow of the Central Intelligence Agency, but the men of the Ground Division are not CIA agents. Many of them come from the ranks of America’s greatest war fighters— Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines, but the men of the Ground Division are not military; They are ghosts. They are off the books of any official government roster.
Red Menace: The Martian Resistance (affiliate link)
With this new travel technology, humans emigrate to Mars by the millions, forming cities and governments, and eventually the Martian Federation. All the while, Earth maintains tight control over its multitrillion-dollar investment. Mars resents this, but with their survival dependent on Earth, they unwillingly concede.
Almost The Truth: Stories and Lies (affiliate link)
Amost the Truth: Stories and Lies is a collection of memoirs, short stories, and recollections which crackle with wit, brazen sentimentality, and unfiltered self awareness.
The stories blur the line between fact and fiction leaving the reader wondering what is real and what is not. Characters from the short stories pop up in family recollections and friends make guest appearances in the short stories. These crossovers become increasingly compelling as the more you read the more you realize these seemingly stand alone pieces are inter connected.
There is a tip of the hat to the curmudgeonry of Larry David, self deprecation of Woody Allen, and self awareness of David Sedaris, but Zevy’s voice and humor is unique and very much his own.
After all, you shouldn’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.

When Your Bad Meets His Good: Find Purpose in Your Pain (affiliate link)
Imagine a life in which we literally believe God and take Him at His Word, one in which we let the trials and tribulations that hit us roll off our backs. We look at those trials as a “life college” and learn everything we can through them. We get better, not bitter. When relationships fail, instead of looking at them as our personal failures, we believe rejection is God’s protection and that He wanted the people out of our lives.
The points in this book are all about perception shifts—learning how to take the bad and shift it for our good. Everything happens for a reason, so instead of getting mad at God for not healing our marriages, giving us favor with a promotion, or saving us from bankruptcy, let’s look at everything we experience as a means of advancement in our lives.

Now that her marriage has been busted up by her cheating ex, she’s decided it’s time to regroup and rediscover herself. This summer she’s headed back to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, to the very lakeshore cottage where she grew up, to figure out what life holds in store for her next.
She never dreamed the answer would be Mick Brody, Destiny’s #1 hellraiser. He comes from the wrong side of the tracks (or in his case, the lake), and he’s landed in hot water more times than he can count. He’s exactly the kind of guy Jenny’s always kept her distance from . . . but soon the good girl and the bad boy are caught in a raw heat that’s out of control. Too bad Mick’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart and ruin Jenny’s perfectly, passionately reckless summer . . .
