Forced Entry, by komrade komura
4 grow houses. 30 months. 8 million dollars.

Under the radar, always a denominator, never a numerator. Obsessive planning, powered by a deadly combination of paranoia and greed. That's the life of a southern grower. Only light sleepers survive. The rest get free room and board at Parchment prison.

A refugee from a high rise corporate plantation was in his 19th month and sailing safely toward the finish line.

The kid was looking for a dry place to stay, away from the cops, away from the shit on the streets.

Jackson, Mississippi is a toxic place. Been that way for a long time....

The Terminals: Spark, by Michael F. Stewart
Sometimes the dead don’t want to talk.

Christine must follow the clues sent back by the shotgun-...

False Flag (A Frank Bowen conspiracy thriller), by Jay Tinsiano
Frank Bowen decides to change his life and travel to Goa where he meets the seemingly friendly Theo and the woman of his dreams, Maria.

In Bangkok, he is pointed in the direction of Theo's friend – Richard – an English ex-pat with dubious connections and knowledge of the seedier side of the city. Richard gains his trust and Frank decides to take up a proposition—to take part in an anti-terrorist drill in Hong Kong.

That drill soon turns into a nightmare.

Plenty of twists and turns in this first, high-octane, conspiracy thriller from Jay Tinsiano.
