Aitken has a keen sense of that, opening a window onto the lively confusions of gay culture.’ (The Age, Melbourne)Fiction & Literature

 

 

Kirkus Independent Book Review of Home Grown – Terror Strikes From Within BOOK REVIEW Terrorists planning a New Year’s Eve attack against the U.S. are working with people on American soil in Turney’s debut thriller. In the post-9/11 world, federal agents pay meticulous attention to seemingly harmless behavior. But what appears to be a routine check on a monitored website in Arizona leads from an Arkansas redneck looking to mix a poisonous concoction for personal reasons to an Islamic extremist in Vegas who has already piqued the FBI’s curiosity. Mixed martial artist Taseen “Taz” Hamshan, with ties to the extremist, is recruited by agent Kyle Morel to go undercover and make nice with a suspected terrorist. But how are the terrorists staying ahead of the FBI? At first glance, readers might suspect that Turney’s 600-plus-page novel would hit lulls. Nope. He allows no off-the-cuff introduction to any character or subplot, providing rich back stories and, surprisingly, never dropping any of the minor plots. Even agents sent to handle mundane surveillance are established in detail—which makes it startling when anyone dies. It’s epic, almost excessively so, but the author does keep the numerous characters from overwhelming the book with subtle reintroductions, such as a soft reminder that Russian intelligence operative Kondrashov is watching the Iranian and Venezuelan presidents. Despite the multiple storylines, there’s cohesion. However, the novel might have benefited from giving stories and characters some breathing room. And the U.S. isn’t the squeaky-clean hero among indignant foreign countries—American citizens must contend with an unpopular president, while Russian agents, despite their country’s neutrality, debate warning the U.S. of a possible jihadist attack. The author laces the story together with striking transitions—evidence being blown up shifts to people watching pyrotechnics at the Treasure Island casino. As the New Year’s celebration approaches, Turney maintains intensity with a natural countdown and an abundance of people in peril. And don’t forget: One of the characters is a jihadist mole. Like a 12-episode TV series condensed into a single book—categorically engagingFiction & Literature

The last woman Thomas, Lord Avondale, expected to fall in love with was the wife he betrayed and abandoned six years ago. When Rose doesn’t accept his apology, however, he loses all hope of a happy future together. Yet he’s thankful she has agreed to come to his bed to beget an heir. Known as the Ice Maiden at Queen Elizabeth I’s court, Rose has been trying to forget the man she once loved—a love she thought destroyed after he spent their wedding night with his mistress. Withstanding Thomas’s charms, however, is proving more difficult than she expected. Can she forgive the ultimate betrayal? Can he ever atone for what he did? Note: Courting His Countess is a novella of approximately 20,000 words, about one-quarter the size of a full-length novel. I’ve priced it as low as I am able. A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR COURTING HIS COUNTESS may be shorter than most of my other books, but it was one of the most difficult stories I’ve ever written. What Thomas did to his wife is despicable and when I began to write, I didn’t think I could make you, the reader, believe he was hero material. Yet the characters and their tale wouldn’t leave my head, nor would the opening lines, so I wrote the story anyway. As I progressed, and especially when I switched to Thomas’s viewpoint, I realized how very male he was being, and part of me started to feel sorry for him. Being a nobleman of his time, he just didn’t get it. Not until he finally saw how his actions had affected a wonderful, strong woman. COURTING HIS COUNTESS breaks one of the “rules” of the romance genre, and I know some of you will find Thomas’s actions unforgiveable. I certainly don’t blame you for that! But I’ve never been very good at sticking to the rules, and I hope you don’t blame ME for listening to the voices in my head.Romance

Hands up if you’d prefer a world without call centres – a world in which builders turned up on the day they promised, cashpoints didn’t charge you to withdraw your own money, and cold-callers were afraid to knock on your door. Good… that appears to be everyone! Then you’ll be pleased to hear that consumer campaigner and all-round troublemaker Jon McKnight knows just how to make that world a reality. Drawing on his 35 years’ experience of taking on traders, combatting conmen and battling with bureaucrats, the author has seen a promised land, ethically cleansed of the people and organisations who make it their business to exploit us, rip us off, and do us down on a daily basis. The journey to that promised land starts right here and right now, with this book. And, like the author and the people he has campaigned for, you could find yourself thousands of pounds better off when you demand compensation instead of the insincere apology and the pat on the head you might have settled for in the past.

Packed full of real-life examples and mischievous methods that would change the world if enough people tried them, this book will show you how to complain, who to complain to, what to do if they ignore you, and how to come out on top in any consumer conflict. And once you’ve read this and learnt the art of the well-aimed complaint, you’ll discover you have the confidence to, metaphorically at least, Throw The Book At Them!
