After receiving a mysterious message from a dead nun, journalist Leah Nash reopens the investigation into her teenage sister’s death. As she starts closing in on the answers, someone starts closing in on her. Leah races down dangerous paths in this twisting tale of hidden motives and long buried secrets—until she finds the stunning truth.
If your sister lived New York City when it was hit by a nuclear bomb would you take the slimmest chance to try to save her?
Step-brothers Franklin and Everon are determined to find and save their sister Cynthia, her husband and infant child. An exciting tale of love and sibling-hood.
It’s August of 1888, just three weeks before Jack the Ripper will begin his grisly spree in the London slum of Whitechapel, and another serial murderer is stalking the gas-lit streets of New York. With taunting messages in backwards Latin left at the crime scenes and even more inexplicable clues like the fingerprints that appear to have been burned into one victim’s throat, his handiwork bears all the hallmarks of a demonic possession.
But consulting detective Harrison Fearing Pell is convinced her quarry is a man of flesh and blood. Encouraged by her uncle, Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry hopes to make her reputation by solving the bizarre case before the man the press has dubbed Mr. Hyde strikes again.
From the squalor of the Five Points to the high-class gambling dens of the Tenderloin and the glittering mansions of Fifth Avenue, Harry and her best friend, John Weston, follow the trail of a remorseless killer, uncovering a few embarrassing secrets of New York’s richest High Society families along the way. Are the murders a case of black magic—or simple blackmail? And will the trail lead them closer to home than they ever imagined?

Before the series began, and before Paladin Carison Destine is known as the best of any of the Paladins of the Realm. And before the tale of his fighting an entire dragon horde and the Butcher Lemore is legendary. His place in the histories of the Realm, along with his companions, is assured.
But how did his story begin?
This tale is part of the answer to that question. We go back now to a time when Carison Destine was just a dragonslayer for hire, gaining his own reputation by his own two hands, along with his constant companion and lover.
In a backwater town in the Third Kingdom, Carison meets the man who was Paladin before him, Marsden Ullahu. He quickly learns that not all heroes live up to their name. Marsden hires Carison and Janetha to help him on one simple task. Find a dragon, kill the dragon. Simple.
Only, this is no ordinary dragon. This is supposedly one of the extinct Whitescales. Nasty, territorial dragons who breathe acid. Janetha knows the money is good for such a simple job but that’s what bothers Carison.
What isn’t Marsden telling them?
About the Author
Ruth Ford Elward, a story teller of Mystery and Thrillers. “I love mysteries, whether it be solving a crime that’s been committed or finding a long lost artifact that could change the world or how to thwart a plot to regain a kingdom. Another love of mine is thrillers, because the pace is faster and the hero has to be more resourceful than the often better equipped villain,” says Ruth.
After years in the business world between managing a division for an international financial printing company, modeling in her spare time and later to performing esthetic treatments, Ruth decided her real passion lies in the world of writing.
“Writing keeps the mind sharp and gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader,” says Ruth. “One of my greatest joys is to be able to lose myself in my writing. So my writing ranges from Mystery, Suspense, Thrillers which includes the areas of International Mystery and Crime, Paranormal Mystery, Spy Thrillers and Speculative Fiction to the various challenges of aging in Non-Fiction.”
Ruth lives in Colorado and enjoys biking, golfing and ballroom dancing in her spare time.
Psychotherapist Letty Whittaker, a professional secret keeper, has a secret of her own. When one of her clients slips free from an abusive boyfriend, Letty becomes the target of his violent rage.

And then–good news–Wayne is murdered. The bad news? The police suspect Letty. Worse yet, the sonnets and bloody souvenirs keep coming. Someone else has been watching Letty. Someone eager to drop bodies at her feet like a cat offering dead mole trophies to his mistress.
Someone willing to kill again.

“Myles is not loveable, but I would love to meet him.”
“I must admit, I didn’t want it to end.”
Myles Morgan never wanted to be an undercover detective. The very idea of becoming a police officer was ludicrous. It made him feel sick.
Myles Morgan has always wanted to be the next Marlon Brando. That was his vocation. Heck, he’d settle for being Al Pacino, Russell Crowe, or even Jude Law. But Myles hasn’t had the breaks in the acting world.
For years he’s stuck it out, working occasionally in small-time productions. Then he gets a part, the lead, in The Hound Of The Baskervilles. He’s thrilled to be playing the legendary Sherlock Holmes.
He’s hoping that the production will change his life. It will. But not in a way he could ever have expected.
NO HERO is a short story about the crime that led to an underachieving actor becoming an undercover cop and is an introduction to the MYLES UNDERCOVER series.
He’s the cheekiest cop you’ll ever meet.
About the Author
Mark Capell is a former documentary television director. He made shows for the BBC, ITV and satellite. He got to meet all sorts of weird and wonderful people, including a gangster who offered, for ‘cost price’, to kill anybody who upset him. Needless to say, he never took up the offer.
Instead, he decided to take his storytelling skills to the world of fiction. His books are highly imaginative tales.
His debut novel, ‘Run, Run, Run’, became a number one bestselling crime thriller on Amazon. He followed it up with a series of novellas about a failed actor who becomes a successful undercover cop because of his inordinate ability to lie – The Myles Morgan Mysteries.
‘Vows to Kill’ was his second full length novel and is about a detective who receives a death threat: I will kill you on your wedding day.
‘Cafe Insomniac’ is his latest novel — 25-year-old Justin opens an all-night café, but he’s soon on a quest to find out how his insomnia is connected to the murder of a customer.
Detective Constable Scott Cullen of Lothian and Borders has only been three months in CID as a full DC. He is assigned a Missing Persons case which has stretched his uniform colleagues. Caroline Adamson – a young, recently divorced mother from Edinburgh – has disappeared whilst on a date.

As Cullen’s own private life gets messier and the relationship with his DI deteriorates, Caroline’s body turns up and he finds himself hunting for a ghost in the machine.
Book one of the Scott Cullen series.
