From the international bestselling author that brought you CHILDREN OF THE FOG comes a terrifying new psychological thriller that will leave you breathless…

Two strangers submerged in guilt, brought together by fate…

After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn’t the only thing he has lost.

Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger’s calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right.

“ONE DOESN’T SIMPLY READ A TARDIF STORY, ONE EXPERIENCES IT!”

Dear reader:

I’m an international bestselling Canadian author who loves to say, “I kill people off for a living!” You can imagine the looks I get from people. Sometimes I’ll tell them, “Fictitiously, of course. I’m an author.” Sometimes I won’t say anything; I’ll let them wonder…

Booklist calls me “a big hit in Canada…a name to reckon with south of the border.”

Born in Vancouver, BC, I was a “military brat” and a “military wife” who has lived all across Canada and in Bermuda. I now reside in Edmonton, AB, with my husband Marc and our Pomeranian Princess, Chai.

Old sins leave dark and lasting scars…

Hannah Stuart thinks she’s safe within the dark and private rooms of Kenninghall, her friend Milo’s rambling and secluded Washington estate. Here she hides from the outside world, nurturing her depression, and lost in a past and painful tragedy she can’t let go. She lives her days by rote, each day the same as the one before.

But change, for good or ill, is both relentless and inescapable.

Milo dies, leaving Hannah a fortune and three letters. Letters telling of old sins and ugly lies, now tangled anew in more shocking depravities. Letters the rich and powerful will kill to suppress. Letters Hannah is driven and honor bound to expose—and time is running out.

When Milo’s long-lost relatives and former business partners start showing up at Kenninghall, Hannah doesn’t know who to trust. In desperation she turns to the mysterious Yates Lang.

Yates has the experience to help her, but he also has secrets of his own—and a compelling reason to destroy the letters.

He may be falling for the reclusive beauty of Kenninghall, but when love gets entangled in existing loyalties, bad blood, and a perfect evil, it can get you killed.

Category: Contemporary Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Westen, Ohio, where small town romance meets an edge of suspense…
“Welcome to Westen. I’m Lorna Doone. Yep, spelled just like the cookie and just as sweet. I own the Peaches ‘N Cream Café, the center of all social get-togethers and gossip here in our small town. You might think nothing much happens in a small mid-western town, but as my friend Harriett says, things aren’t always what they appear. Romance and suspense can happen almost anywhere and to anyone. Take our girl Emma for example…”

Emma Lewis has a lot on her plate. As a single mother trying to raise two precocious twin boys, she works two jobs to make ends meet while also caring for an aging mother who is having trouble getting through each day. Having faced one scandal nearly seven years ago, the last thing Emma needs is adventure, romance or a man in her life, especially a wickedly sexy doctor. Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt.

So when the small town’s only doctor goes on vacation and his handsome nephew takes over, Emma is shocked to not only find the man she once had a teenage crush on standing in her bedroom, but suddenly he’s accusing her of being a neglectful parent. Despite what the arrogant man may think, she’ll do anything to protect her sons, even from his so-called good intentions.

Doctor Clint Preston came to his small town home of Westen for the year to fill in as the town doc while his uncle took a long needed vacation. Burned out by long shifts in an urban hospital’s ER and the tragic loss of a boy who was the victim of neglect, Clint also needs a sense of peace and calm to try to find his passion for his medical career once more.

In his first week back in town, he’s angered to find two boys in his clinic with broken wrists and no accompanying parent, he is determined to confront their mother to prevent further injuries to his young patients. However, the feisty redhead he meets quickly dispels his belief that she’s a neglectful mother. Despite her bravado and stubbornness, Clint can see her situation is more critical than she wishes to face. Before he can think better of it, he finds himself volunteering to help care for her sons, face the devastating news about her mother’s health and oversee the remodeling of her home.

Slowly, Emma and Clint give into their mutual attraction and begin to build a relationship with the help of the slightly off-beat characters that inhabit Westen. Then a menace from Emma’s past terrorizes her and the life she’s forged with her sons. When a murder for hire scheme threatens Emma’s life, Clint realizes how much she and her family have come to mean to him. He will do anything to protect them.

Can Clint and Emma come together to prevent losing either or both of her sons? Can their new found love survive the danger threatening them all?

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Dugan thought somali pirates were bad news. Then it got worse.

As Tom Dugan and Alex Kairouz, his partner and best friend, struggle to ransom their ship and crew from murderous Somali pirates, things take a turn for the worse. A US Navy contracted tanker with a full load of jet fuel is also hijacked, not by garden variety pirates, but by terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, changing the playing field completely.

With a possible link between piracy and terrorism now in play, the US and British goverments order the halt of all negotiations for captive ships, and enraged pirates ratchet up the mistreatment of the captive crews. When one of their crewman is murdered in front of him on a live video feed, a frustrated Dugan takes matters into his own hands and starts his own rescue operation, only to stumble across something far more sinister — a rogue salvage operation for a long lost weapon of mass destruction. Isolated at sea on an old tanker previously destined for the ship breakers, Dugan and his hastily assembled little force of Russian mercenaries find themselves the last line of defense between the world and a terrifying bio-weapon.

Weaving historical fact with speculative fiction, Deadly Coast takes the reader from London board rooms into the very real world of modern day pirates — and their victims.

After five years on the run, Sunday has finally settled into a seemingly normal life in Columbia, South Carolina. What her two best friends don’t know is that Sunday has a secret past. She is the Incarnate, a conduit of mystical energy transcendent of the mundane and the divine. For most of her life, she served under Bernadette, the most powerful witch in the Northwest. Her power is terrifying, and what she remembers of her past—and what she doesn’t—haunts her. In the year that she’s been attempting to be anything but the Incarnate, Sunday has fought her abilities tooth and nail, but it’s been worth it. When Sunday joins her friends’ coven for an innocent gathering, Sunday discovers a darkness hidden beneath the blanket of the coven’s magic and she is determined to find out who is behind it and what she has planned.

For the last four years, Cyrus has been the point man on the contract to recapture the Incarnate and deliver her to the Pastophori of Iset. A gifted tracker and a fearless werewolf, he harbors a wild, inexplicable passion for the Incarnate that has driven him to hunt her. He was one of the original captors that brought her to Bernadette when his obsession with her began. Having found her, Cyrus and his pack find themselves torn between two objectives: take her by force and deliver her to yet another group of fanatics, or help her uncover the traitor among her coven.

Too Jewish, by Patty Friedmann, is regularly $2.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars based on 277 customer reviews.

Category: Literary Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

THEIR OWN FAMILY TRIED TO DESTROY THEIR MARRIAGE…

…but love kept them together… The Powerful Love Story of a Jewish-American Family

Like Patty Friedmann’s father, young, brainy protagonist Bernie Cooper escapes Nazi Germany and ends up in New Orleans, where he finds an entirely new kind of prejudice against Jews—the kind that comes from other Jews. Sadly, they’re his own in-laws.

At first this strikes him only as petty and small-minded, but he has no idea how much hatred his scheming mother-in-law can wring from the situation. She knows, for instance, that he had to leave behind his beloved mother, and she uses his mother’s life and memory as a lever against him, eventually causing him physical and mental problems that threaten his family’s well-being in every possible way and thwart him at every turn.

Thus, Bernie and Letty’s daughter Darby is born into the most peculiar of mixed marriages, torn, as her mother is, between loyalty to her grandparents and to her father. Even she, at her tender age, wonders whether Letty’s love–and her own–can save Bernie from the secret pain and guilt of surviving the Holocaust. And from the machinations of his cruel mother-in-law.

A bittersweet love story told in three novellas, each from the point of view of one member of the Cooper family. Think The Time Traveler’s Wife. Definitely a love story; definitely not a “romance.”

(And somewhat autobiographical: Too Jewish tells a story much like the central tale of Patty Friedmann’s young life: her father suffered from survivor guilt, all the while trying to make his way in a hostile society.)

Hide your children, lock your doors, and load your guns because zombies are real and they are coming. Danny Terrence knows this better than anyone.

Yet four other survivors easily have it worse than him. Between a thirteen-year-old girl on a road trip from hell, a family of paranoid hunters having to deal with their feelings for the first time ever, a stubborn doctor butting-heads with a cold-hearted sergeant and an amoral British professor carrying the fate of humanity in his hands, Danny has it easy.

Meanwhile, Ralph is about to hit the Big Six O and he’s not happy about it. Neither is Blake. Especially now that she suspects Ralph might be cheating on her. Again.

At this tense time in their relationship, Blake and Ralph are forced by Ralph’s über-neurotic billionaire boss to work together to solve a murder, bust up a deadly international criminal conspiracy–and save Ralph’s job.

Deadly Straits, by R.E. McDermott, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 499 customer reviews.

Category: Thriller / Action & Adventure

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

When very part-time spook Tom Dugan becomes collateral damage in the War on Terror, he’s not about to take it lying down.

Falsely implicated in a hijacking, he’s offered a chance to clear himself by helping the CIA snare their real prey, Dugan’s best friend, London ship owner Alex Kairouz. Reluctantly, Dugan agrees to go undercover in Alex’s company, despite doubts about his friend’s guilt. Once undercover, Dugan’s steadfast refusal to accept Alex’s guilt puts him at odds not only with his CIA superiors, but also with a beautiful British agent with whom he’s romantically involved.

When a tanker is found adrift near Singapore with a dead crew, and another explodes in Panama as Alex lies near death after a suspicious suicide attempt, Dugan is framed for the attacks. Out of options, and convinced the attacks are prelude to an even more devastating assault, Dugan eludes capture to follow his last lead to Russia, only to be shanghaied as an ‘advisor’ to a Russian Spetsnaz unit on a suicide mission.

Deadly Straits is a non-stop thrill ride, from London streets, to the dry docks of Singapore, to the decks of the tankers that feed the world’s thirst for oil, with stops along the way in Panama, Langley, Virginia, and Teheran. Richly spiced with detail from the author’s 30 years sailing, building, and repairing ships worldwide, it is, in the words of one reviewer, “fast-paced, multilayered and gripping.”

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Take the most sophisticated A.I. designed mind that has ever existed, encase it in over fifty million cubic kilometres of diamond nano-rods and send it off on a twenty-thousand-year odyssey towards the centre of the galaxy. Then screw it all up by allowing thirty-two million humans to go along for the ride.

One of the thirty two million humans has only just been revived from what he considers to have been a 360-year dream. He used to be known as Louie Drago back on Earth but now he has a new body, a new name and an almost entirely vacant memory. Fortunately, the original Louie, having been a pornographically wealthy, self-described ‘business gurulla’ had not only bought himself a one-way cryo-ticket which included having his body reengineered and returned back to its prime, he’d also had his entire personality digitised and uploaded to the ship’s systems as an interactive hologram. Well, we say ‘fortunately’ but so far, very few people feel they have benefited from that decision.

Gravity and levity are in abundance – and in every direction.

Too Jewish: The Next Generation, by Patty Friedmann, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars based on 10 customer reviews.

Category: Contemporary Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Formerly titled THE EXACT IMAGE OF MOTHER, this dark tragicomedy is the sequel to Patty Friedmann’s perennial kindle bestseller, TOO JEWISH.

Originally titled The Exact Image of Mother, Too Jewish: The Next Generation tells the darkly comic coming-of-age tale of heroine Darby Cooper, the only child of a Holocaust survivor father, who at 30 is still siphoning through a mountain of anger at a narcissistic mother and a quickly declining senile grandmother. Caught between the Cooper matriarchs and her hard-working father, Darby’s alienation isn’t helped by her discovery that her rich maternal grandparents could have saved her father’s mother from the concentration camps … but did not. Nor is she particularly “at home” in her hometown–always having felt an outsider in largely Catholic New Orleans, she feels estranged from the small, wealthy Jewish community into which she was born.

Family drama aside, 30 has another trick up its sleeve: a ticking biological clock. Darby decides she wants a child, so she goes about fulfilling this desire in typically madcap fashion. But it’s impending motherhood that makes Darby realize she must break with her own mother, leave New Orleans, and finally grow up.

On a warm July morning in L.A. County, a frozen corpse turns up at a highway brake check just south of the Grapevine Pass. Ex-homicide detective Hunter Rayne, who now drives an eighteen wheeler, is persuaded by his irascible dispatcher, Elspeth Watson, to help clear two fellow truck drivers who are arrested for the murder.

The circumstantial evidence is strong, and a rookie detective from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is eager to score a win. The investigation crosses the Canada-U.S. border when the victim is identified as a second rate musician from Vancouver, and it turns out there were more than a few desperate people happy to see him dead, including the accused couple. Hunter has to use all his investigative skills to uncover the truth.

Hunter’s ex-wife maintains that by taking to the highway Hunter is running away from his past, but he believes that the solitude of days on the road is helping him to heal from guilt over the failure of his marriage and the suicide of his best friend. Tangled relationships and multiple suspects emerge throughout the novel, as Hunter butts heads with more than one officer of the law to solve the crime.

Jason Sloan is known as Harper’s Crossing’s resident Romeo, and he’s never had to work too hard to live up to that nickname. With his easygoing charm, whiskey-colored brown eyes, and sinfully sexy half smile, women just seem to fall all over themselves when he’s around.

Well…most women, anyway. Katie Lawson’s the one woman who isn’t putty in his hands, and she’s the only one he’s ever wanted in his arms.

Katie Lawson left Harper’s Crossing in the middle of the night ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick’s funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan.

Now she’s on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco’s top law firms. She’s made a life for herself that’s all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself way too busy to think about all that she ran away from. If she can do that, after all, she can keep everything under control.

But that rule is about to be broken. She’s headed back home to be the maid of honor in Nick’s little sister’s wedding. It’s time to face the truth she’s been avoiding all these years, the same one that sent her running ten years ago – that maybe she didn’t lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper’s Crossing.

About the Author:

 

tim tigner

 

Tim began his career in the Green Berets where he learned Russian and specialized in Soviet counterintelligence, but switched from espionage to arbitrage with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Moving to Moscow in the midst of Perestroika, then Brussels during the formation of the EU, and eventually landing in Silicon Valley as a startup CEO, Tim has enjoyed a globetrotting career.

Equally active outside the boardroom, Tim has climbed the peaks of Mount Olympus, hang glided the cliffs of Rio de Janeiro, and parachuted into places undisclosed. He walked the Serengeti with a Maasai warrior, worked medical experiments with an orbiting cosmonaut, and crossed the Atlantic with the Gorbachevs. While none of his adventures were planned to be a thriller writer’s research, they certainly help.

Addicted to reading thrillers since 1994, Tim has been writing them since 2004. His thrillers have all hit Amazon’s Top Ten Best Seller lists. He lives with his wife Elena and their two daughters in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tim earned an MBA from Wharton, and MA in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania.

When she’s ambushed on the plains, she’s ready to go out with guns blazing-until a mysterious, handsome cowboy rides to her rescue.

Jake has his own motives for helping Abby, beyond aiding a damsel in distress. He’s a Reaper, and while he’s learned to wrest control of his mind from the parasite, the effects won’t last without a permanent cure. And he needs Abby to get it.

Abby and Jake are natural enemies and unlikely partners. But when their search reveals a conspiracy between Reapers and the rich industrialists who own the mountain cities, they must work together to find the cure-or lose the border, and each other, forever.
