The Monsoon Ghost Image by Tom Vater Book Tour! @rararesources @rararesources

The Monsoon Ghost Image

Dirty Pictures, Secret Wars And Human Beasts – Detective Maier Is Back To Investigate The Politics Of Murder
The third Detective Maier mystery is a taut and crazy spy thriller for our disturbing times.
When award-winning German conflict photographer Martin Ritter disappears in a boating accident in Thailand, the nation mourns the loss of a cultural icon. But a few weeks later, Detective Maier’s agency in Hamburg gets a call from Ritter’s wife. Her husband has been seen alive on the streets of Bangkok. Maier decides to travel to Thailand to find Ritter. But all he finds is trouble and a photograph.
As soon as Maier puts his hands on the Monsoon Ghost Image, the detective turns from hunter to hunted – the CIA, international business interests, a doctor with a penchant for mutilation and a woman who calls herself the Wicked Witch of the East all want to get their fingers on Martin Ritter’s most important piece of work – visual proof of a post 9/11 CIA rendition and the torture of a suspected Muslim terrorist on Thai soil. From the concrete canyons of the Thai capital to the savage jungles and hedonist party islands of southern Thailand, Maier and his sidekick Mikhail race against formidable foes to discover some of our darkest truths and to save their lives into the bargain.

Spiral Into Darkness by Joseph Lewis Mini Blog Blitz! @rararesources

Spiral Into Darkness
He blends in. He is successful, intelligent and methodical. There are no clues. There are no leads. The only thing the FBI and local police have to go on is the method of death: two bullets to the face- gruesome and meant to send a message. But it’s difficult to understand any message coming from a dark and damaged mind. Two adopted boys, struggling in their own world, have no idea they are the next targets. Neither does their family. And neither does local law enforcement.

Extract #3 = Debrief the Day’s Work
After a day of work in the field, law enforcement and FBI gather to go over what was found.
“I,” he began again, then continued. “The shooter is organized. The crime scene is organized. He plans each murder. This guy is intelligent. Something is driving him. We just don’t know what it is, but it’s right there,” he said gesturing at the crime scene board.
“Why do you think this?” Alamorode asked. “I’m not doubting you. I just want to understand your reasoning.”
“We watched the tape of the Bodencamp shooting. The shooter was waiting for her. He knew she would be working late. He had to have surveilled her and knew her movements. Same with the O’Laughlin shooting in the parking garage. The shooter knew where he had parked and at what time O’Laughlin would be in the parking garage after work. There was evidence that the overhead lighting in the garage had been tampered with, so the shooter had that planned too.”

About the Book

Cozy Mystery 
Wild River Consulting & Publishing, LLC (June 21, 2018)

Would you move a dead body for the sake of your best friend? Ask cha-cha babe Celia Ewing, a sixty-five-year-old widow who has just settled into Boca Pelicano Palms, the Florida retirement community of her dreams. When Celia’s best friend Marcy calls her and their friend Deb for help in the middle of the night, they find a naked Marcy trapped under the body of her beau, the community’s board president, Melvin. And he’s dead. The three friends secretly move Melvin back to his apartment setting off a chain of events that will threaten to tear their community apart and send them to jail. Melvin is one of a number of residents who are dying under suspicious circumstances; and soon Celia becomes an amateur sleuth in an attempt to identify what she suspects is a serial murderer.
Filled with humorous, witty observations about retirement communities, the realities of getting older, and the promise of new love, the Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way celebrates the deep bonds of female friendships, the desire for companionship at any age, and shows us that it’s never too late to learn how to cha-cha through life.
