Pestilence - Brian L. Porter, Author





‘It took Hilary less than five minutes to drive the half mile to her home. During those minutes she reflected on the state of her latest patient. That David Bradley was ill she was in no doubt about.

Influenza had been responsible for millions of deaths throughout the history… Continue

aware instantly of an energy, a sort of… Continue

Dead Air - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat





"Bomb, Bomb! Ohmigod. We'd just gotten a bomb threat. My thoughts

scurried through my head like a manic squirrel as I tried to deal with

the reality of the threat. Was it a joke? Was it serious? And if there

was really a bomb, where was it? Would there be time to evacuate the

station? Should I dial 911 or alert the switchboard first? Or the

station manager? Was there some… Continue

Ghost at Work - Carolyn Hart, Author



Ghost at Work - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



"He's dead!" Her

voice was a whisper. "What am I going to do?" "Call the police." I

clapped my fingers to my mouth. I hadn't intended to speak. "I can't."

It was a moan. The moan turned into a strangled gasp. She looked

wildly about. "Who's there? Where are you?" Skirting the body, she

hurried to… Continue

Susan

shakily reached out for the mask and held it to her face. Slowly her

breathing eased. The bluish tinge faded from her face. She put aside

Dead Write - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'His choice of pen had already told Claudia something about him. Even before she began to analyze the handwriting, she knew that he cared about the way things looked, that he had an eye for color and texture.
