WHAT IS THE BOOK ABOUT

They say human life is the most precious thing. The Collector doesn’t agree.

As Lucy works to uncover his identity, she soon realizes she is up against a ruthless mastermind who is systematically eliminating anyone who might lead her to him. But Lucy won’t give up and soon The Collector turns his attention to her…

The Wolf and the Watchman by Niklas Natt Och Dag – Review

Mickel Cardell, an infirm ex-soldier and former guard, fishes out a mutilated corpse from the fetid lake of Stockholm. The corpse has no limbs, eyes, teeth, or tongue. The only thing that distinguishes it from a discarded carcass is his mass of golden hair.

Cecil Winge is a brilliant consulting detective to the Stockholm police and is suffering from tuberculosis. Together, Winge and Cardell must race against time to discover the monster who ravaged this unidentifiable man.

Meanwhile, Kristopher Blix—a joyful fellow—arrives in Stockholm from his village to become a doctor. His initial good fortunes soon take a turn for the worse.

In another corner of the city, Anna Stina—a young woman—is unjustly imprisoned in a workhouse. She hopes to escape from the hellhole, but she should do it soon since she is the next target of a sadistic guard. The paths of these extraordinary characters collide in unexpected ways in The Wolf and the Watchman penned by Niklas Natt Och Dag.

Leave My Ashes on Blackheart Mountain by Dave Matthes – Review

Leave My Ashes on Blackheart Mountain by Dave Matthes explores what is sacred to a murderer.

Rancid Mahoney works for Gunther Ostrander, Head Prospector of New Canterton, a mining settlement in what was once, a long time ago before civilization ended, “the heart of American Northwest”. Mahoney’s task is to find out the Blackheart Mountain which is the source of “Blackvein”, a miracle mineral rumored to cure even grievous injuries to the human body. Mahoney has failed to discover it so far.

Until now.

Before he sets out on yet another expedition, Ostrander asks Mahoney for a favor: hand over the prisoner Til Drange to the settlement of Vermont so that Mayor Kenroy can punish Drange for killing his brother. Along the way, they encounter scouts of the Tuskatawa tribe who believe it is now time for them to take back the land of their native ancestors.

Now, add Mancino Rolandraz, the leader of the savage Crimson Collars gang, who wants Drange dead at any cost to the mix, and Mahoney has got a powder keg in his hand. He soon realizes it is going to blow up no matter which side he takes. What he must decide is which side to fight for to make it worthwhile. Read Leave My Ashes on Blackheart Mountain by Dave Matthes to find out.

After living a luxurious life with a beautiful wife and raising two sons, Carlos now feels empty. Recently divorced and without a job, he does not know what future holds for him, but his past torments him. He cannot forget the crime(s) he committed one fateful day decades ago in Ghana.

The paths of Carlos and Liz cross in spectacular, unimaginable ways, and each is drawn back to the Black Volta River of Ghana, which is witness to the most dreadful day of both their lives. Can the River provide them salvation? Read Black Volta by Pete KJ to find out.
