1,000 Yards: A John Milton Short Story

From Amazon number-one best-selling author Mark Dawson, this novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty's government.

Meet John Milton. He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder. Milton is the man the government sends after you when everything else has failed. Ruthless. Brilliant. Anonymous. Lethal. You wouldn't pick him out of a crowd, but you wouldn't want to be on his list.

But now, after ten years, he's had enough - there's blood on his hands, and he wants out. Trouble is this job is not one you can just walk away from. In this dip into his case files, Milton is sent into North Korea. With nothing but a sniper rifle, bad intentions, and a very particular target. Will Milton be able to take on the secret police of the most dangerous failed state on the planet?

Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, The Art of Falling Apart and Subpoena Colada, have been published in multiple languages.

The German chancellor, Claudia Meyer, is riding a wave of popularity at home. But she also has her enemies, and one of them has hired an assassin - nicknamed "The Scorpion" - for twenty million Euros to kill her.

Little does the chancellor know that the Scorpion is relentless. He is ruthless, and he is extremely good at his job. The government has no clue what the Scorpion looks like and how he will strike. Not even her bodyguards are a guarantee of safety. All they know is that the Scorpion leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Captain Sophie Decker of German Intelligence rapidly becomes Meyer's only chance of ultimate survival, along with her colleague, Lieutenant Wolfgang Schmitz.

Decker and Schmitz are given an order - stop the Scorpion by any means necessary - before the Scorpion gets to the chancellor.

Praise for "The Renegade Spy"

"In my capacity as an English professor, I want to tell you that YOUR WRITING IS BEAUTIFUL. Your writing is sophisticated both in terms of style and structure. Your hook immediately piqued my interest, and your style and voice are distinctive. Were you in one of my classes, I'd put your work in the top 5% based on what I read".

"If Die Hard would have had a female lead, Decker would have been it".

"Sophie Decker is my newest favorite heroine".

"This book is the sort of book that is very difficult to put down once you start reading it".

The Dreadful Alchemist: A Thrilling Espionage Novel (Techno Thriller, Mystery & Suspense Book 1)

A blood-chilling tale of international nuclear terrorThis action packed, fast moving international thriller, is a page turner from cover to virtual cover. It takes the reader from peaceful Scandinavia, to the offices of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and through a clandestine laboratory culminating in the turmoil of the Middle East where the Islamic State seeks to establish the New Islamic Caliphate. Ollie, a disgruntled young Swedish man, joins the Islamic State fanatics in Syria and is given a special mission that will promote a global nuclear war. Through subterfuge, manipulation and ruthlessness Ollie is determined to accomplish his goal. The disappearance of radioactive sources from hospitals all over Europe attracts the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency. A plot to detonate a radioactive dispersion device is suspected, but David Avivi, a brilliant physicist who is a Mossad agent, believes something much worse is at hand. A continent wide chase begins to discover the whereabouts of the missing sources and a bizarre scientist who may be involved. David and the Israel Security Agency are just one step behind Ollie...

??? ISIS will stop at nothing to promote destruction and havoc on a global scale. Who can stop them?This exciting thriller combines two important, yet very demanding, political and scientific elements. The author skillfully leads us through the current political situation in the Western world by employing menacing ingredients such as fanatic Islam and atomic bomb threat. Though the basic scheme of this book comprises of classical components such as sex and the Middle East conflict, the reader is easily and quickly caught by the developing plot. The scientific core is (thank God) unfounded, yet it looks reasonable even for scientists that are not experts in nuclear physics.

This book is highly recommended for those who like thrillers with unexpected original plot.

Clarity Hunters

Hugh Brier is an average guy with above-average troubles. His construction skills, and his background he doesn't talk about much, attract the interest of a shadowy think tank called the Merit Group. They think he's clever and want to hire him, though the terms of his employment are worryingly vague.

Hugh manages to tell them 'no' in a way they understand. He thinks he's clear of all trouble when his day job almost kills him. The apartment building he's spearheading partially collapses while he and his people are inside.

When Hugh wakes, he's in the hospital, three of his employees are dead, and the police and prosecutors are eyeing Hugh hard.

Hugh's insistence on his innocence seems to make him look more guilty. Under the darkest kind of cloud, he begins piecing together the facts of this disaster. The true picture is a dangerous one: one of Portland's shadowy power centers, a builder and concrete supplier called Andrew Pallin, has orchestrated the sabotage of Hugh's building. He's also pulling strings to ensure Hugh's prosecution. It's the hard nose way of handling up-and-coming competition.

Hugh can't convince anyone in authority to believe him. What's left? Prison, no. He's already spent many months in a federal prison earlier in his life. He wants vindication.

Hugh turns to the people he met at the Merit Group and asks for their help. There's a cost, of course. Hugh has to commit to a year's contract working for them in exchange for a plan to bring about Andrew Pallin's fall.

Hugh knows how heavy his current troubles are and signs up. Once he steps into the shadowy world of think tanks and private spies, his real trouble begins.

Clarity Hunters is the first book featuring Hugh Brier.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

Q - So, what makes the Alex Thorne series special?

A - The Alex Thorne series is focused on giving readers a high-thrill, page-turning rollercoaster of female-fronted spy action. There is a heady mixture of adventure, mystery and thriller elements in each instalment that takes the reader down a twisting path of shocking revelations and high adrenaline as Alex uncovers the secrets about both her adversaries and her own family.

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

A - At its heart, because the series is a thrilling ride of action adventure. Also however, there are very few action spy thrillers that focus upon a female protagonist; something that I believe is a travesty and that I hope to do my part to correct with the Alex Thorne series. I believe that it is possible for women to kick just as much butt as any suave male spy could, and I want to showcase this fact.

Q - Can readers get the second instalment for free?

A - They sure can! Simply go to the web link written in the first few pages of 'Eastern Shadows' and you can have the option of getting 'Patriot Traitors: Alex Thorne Book Two' for FREE if you sign up to the C.J. Somersby mailing list.

And thanks for reading!

Camp X: A Shaken, Not Stirred short story (The Secret Files of I__ F______, Code Designate 17F)

When World War II engulfed the globe, many Allied secret agents trained to hunt the secrets of the Axis Powers at a secret school hidden deep in the Canadian wilderness, a fabled academy for spies known as Special Training School 103, or to its students, CAMP X. The names of the men who attended this school have long been the stuff of lore, including a never-confirmed legend that Ian Fleming, future creator of fiction's greatest spy, learned everything he would later put into his writing within its hallowed barbed wired.

In this addendum to Aaron Cooley's cult sensation SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED -- called "One of the best books of the Year" by IndieReader.com -- a young Fleming is dispatched to Camp X for his schooling in espionage before he begins his quest for the elusive double agent Dusko Petrovic. He will learn many of the tricks of the trade he will need both on his mission and in his later literary career; but will he find the answer to the question that haunts him most -- is he himself cut out to be a spy?

Whether you've already read SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED and are thirsting for more, or are interested in an introduction to its enthralling characters and tableau, CAMP X is an engaging literary tease from an emerging talent, and another "tale even Ian Fleming himself would have been proud to call his own."

Reviews for Aaron Cooley's SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED:

"ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR. Spellbinding ... highly entertaining ... a must-read for die-hard James Bond fans. 5 stars."

- IndieReader.com

"Combines the best ingredients of an edge-of-your-seat action movie and a page-turning thriller into one riveting punch. I wish I could nominate it for an Oscar!"

- Joel Schumacher, director of THE LOST BOYS, A TIME TO KILL and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

"A frenetic thriller ... keeps the story moving without ever losing its sense of fun."

- Kirkus Reviews

"Aaron Cooley writes with such galloping deftness and verve that you'll find yourself swearing you were present at the creation of James Bond."

- James Kaplan, author of FRANK: THE VOICE

"That fun hybrid of a fast-paced thriller and fantasized Roman a' clef. Bond readers will enjoy it immensely--those who like WWII espionage stories will find it a good ride as well. It'll be awhile until the next 007 literary adventure--Shaken, Not stirred is a more than worthy place holder for the holidays."

- Wesley Britton, Bookpleasures.com

"A wonderful juxtaposition of vintage James Bond, Tom Clancy's inestimable Jack Ryan, with a little whimsy thrown in for good measure. Four stars."

- Carolann Dematos, HerLiterarySalon.com

"Cooley has done the near-impossible: crafted a tale even Ian Fleming himself would have been proud to call his own. The best book I've read this year."

- David Callaham, screenwriter of THE EXPENDABLES and DOOM

"Cracks like the bullet from a sniper's rifle. Full of guts and elegance; a great thriller and a terrific debut."

- Colin Dickey, author of CRANIOKLEPTY and AFTERLIVES OF THE SAINTS

"A marvelous 'what if' about Ian Fleming and the genesis of James Bond. A top-notch spy thriller, too."

- Bill Desowitz, author of JAMES BOND UNMASKED

Temperance's Trial, Episode 1 of the Virtues and Valor Series

Introducing the Virtues and Valor series part 1 of 7 serialized stories that tell the tale of a daring rescue and escape. Each episode is told from the perspective of a different heroine, and each heroine is inspired by a true WWII heroine.

The Third Reich Seeks to Extract the Information She Alone Knows

MARIE GILBERT and her elder brother flee from Vichy France after the Gestapo arrest her father for suspicion of aiding Jewish children to escape the oncoming fascist front. Once in London, Marie is recruited into an experimental all female cohort dubbed the Virtues, a collection of seven extraordinary women with highly specialized skills.

Known only by her code name, TEMPERANCE, she is trained to operate a wireless radio and returns to her beloved France. With a new identity, Marie clandestinely communicates vital intelligence directly back to Headquarters but unwillingly attracts the attention and apparent adoration of a handsome but ruthless Nazi officer, Oberleutnant LEOPOLD SCHAFER.

As the H-hour to execute their daring mission draws ever closer, Marie plays a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the unrelenting and merciless young Lieutenant Schafer and the Nazi soldiers under his command.

TEMPERANCE'S TRIAL is part one of seven serialized novellas entitled the Virtues and Valor series.

Seven valorous women -- different nationalities, ethnicities, and social backgrounds -- come together as a team called the Virtues.

In 1941 Great Britain a special war department assembles an experimental and exclusively female cohort of combat operatives. Four willing spies, a wireless radio operator, an ingenious code breaker, and a fearless pilot are each hand-picked, recruited, and trained to initiate a daring mission in Occupied France. As plans are laid to engineer the largest prison break of Allied POWs in history, the Nazis capture the Virtues' radio operator. It will take the cohesive teamwork of the rest of the women to save her life before Berlin breaks her and brings the force of the Third Reich to bear.

Some find love, some find vengeance, and some discover the kind of strength that lives in the human heart when all they can do is rely on each other and their shared belief. Courage, faith, and valor intersect but, in the end, one pays the ultimate price.

Introducing the Virtues and Valor series by Hallee Bridgeman. Seven serialized novellas, each inspired by real people and actual events, reveal the incredible story of amazing heroines facing the ultimate test of bravery.
