Tears don't fall in zero-g.

No one believed Meriel Hope when she said the attack on her home, the merchant spaceship Princess, was piracy. There had not been a reported hijacking in nearly a century, and she was just a twelve-year-old kid. But Meriel knew that pirates slaughtered her parents and friends and left her with the responsibility to find a safe home for her sister and the surviving orphans.

Ten years after the attack, Meriel still suffers from symptoms of PTSD while she struggles to carve out a normal life for herself on a new ship with a new job and a new romance. Unknown to her, the conspiracy behind the carnage on the Princess still plots to enslave an entire sector of space to control a priceless resource.

But Meriel and the orphans are in the way. Again.

Follow the adventures of Meriel Hope as she fights for freedom and survival in an unforgiving universe.

The Empress Holds The Key: A disturbing, edge-of-your-seat historical thriller (Jack Rogan Mysteries Book 1), by Gabriel Farago. (Still 0.99?)

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading the new ebook by Gabriel Farago called 'The Empress Holds the Key.' It is a suspense filled novel with a trail of mysterious clues and strong characters. The last section is quite thrilling as all the intricacies of the plot are resolved. If you like ancient conspiracies, historical locations and mystery, you will find this book is hard to put down ... or turn off! " -- Amazon Reviewer

If you enjoy current best-selling thriller novels by authors such as Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Steve Berry and Brad Thor, if you like high adventure, exotic locations and action thrillers with a historical twist, then this is page-turner for you!

THE EMPRESS HOLDS THE KEY is a mystery action thriller for the thinking reader who has an open mind and likes to be challenged.

In THE EMPRESS HOLDS THE KEY, author Gabriel Farago takes you on an exciting journey of discovery where the stakes are high, the rewards great, but where the price of failure is oblivion.

This fast-paced international thriller weaves fact and fiction into an adventure of epic proportions as it follows the lives of a handful of diverse individuals tied together by destiny and fate.

Journalist Jack Rogan knows a great story when he finds one. A charred old photograph found in the ruins of a burnt-out Blue Mountains cottage hints at dark secrets and unwittingly reignites an ancient and deadly quest for a holy relic mysteriously erased from the pages of history.

Federal Police officer Jana Gonski in pursuit of a suspected Nazi war criminal joins forces with Rogan, barrister and amateur archaeologist Marcus Carrington QC, and celebrated composer Benjamin Krakowski. Together they uncover a murky web of intrigue and greed, hoards of Nazi gold and hidden Swiss bank accounts. All implicate wealthy banker Sir Eric Newman. When Newman goes on trial, unexpected clues are discovered pointing the way to a mystery that has haunted the Catholic Church for centuries.

On a dangerous journey to find the relic, Rogan and his companions trace links back as far as the reign of Akhenaten, the heretic pharaoh of ancient Egypt, and King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. What is this dark secret guarded by the Knights Templar, and so feared by the Vatican? Will religious fanatics foil the quest which could destroy the very foundations of their Church and challenge Christianity itself?

Wicked Is the Whiskey: A Sean McClanahan Mystery (Sean McClanahan Mysteries Book 1), by Tom Purcell. (Still 0.99?)

"A well written mystery in the style of Mickey Spillane with a modern flair. Suspenseful and thrilling, written in the first person - Sean McClanahan, the tough PI (with a tender-side) and former Pittsburgh Detective who owns an Irish Pub, uncovers the mystery behind the believed suicide of a famous author and relationship expert. McClanahan’s old-style investigating and dedication leads him into gut-wrenching turns to solve this high-profile mystery. With a great Pittsburgh backdrop, this is a must read for those who like to indulge in a good old-fashion style detective mystery – perhaps, while enjoying a Guinness or two." -- Amazon Reviewer

When the world-famous John Preston jumps to his death from the Maryville Bridge in Pittsburgh, PA everyone at McClanahan's Irish Pub is speculating about his death. Private Eye Sean McClanahan is as curious as anyone -- particularly when he is visited at the family pub by two unusual ladies who want him to investigate Preston's death. Of course, that's long before he knows what Preston's demise will put him through.

This is the first Sean McClanahan mystery by nationally syndicated humor columnist Tom Purcell, author of "Misadventures of a 1970s Childhood." Filled with colorful characters common to the hills and valleys of one of America's most storied industrial cities, McClanahan sets off on a dangerous odyssey that could be his very last.

Trial by Twelve (A Murder in the Mountains Book 2), by Heather Day Gilbert. (Still 3.99?)

"Heather Day Gilbert's voice plays very well for Tess. Her entertaining prose, story development with occasional humor, fleshed out, colorful, and interesting peripheral characters, emotional conflicts, touching moments, and multiple suspects provide quick reads with satisfying conclusions to the immediate mystery. Trial by Twelve leaves the reader with a new conflict to anticipate in Heather's next addition to the well done A Murder in the Mountains Series. " -- Amazon Reviewer

~Trial by Twelve is the 2015 Grace Award Winner for Mystery/Romantic Suspense/Thriller/Historical Suspense~

Tess Spencer loves her low-key job at the Crystal Mountain Spa, which allows her plenty of down-time with her one-year old daughter and lawyer husband, Thomas. But when a pool installation turns up eight skeletons in the spa's back yard, Tess becomes entangled in a sleuthing job destined to go awry.

As the investigation gets underway, someone dumps a fresh body near the excavated burial site, confirming unspeakable fears. A serial killer has returned to Buckneck, West Virginia...a skilled hunter with a unique taste in prey.

When Tess agrees to help the cunning Detective Tucker gather clues from the inside, she discovers the posh spa hides more than dead bodies. Even as she sifts through layers of deceit, Tess realizes too late that the killer's sights have zeroed in on her.

Unpredictable psychological mystery replete with memorable characters, Trial by Twelve is Book Two in A Murder in the Mountains series.

This novel is written from a Christian worldview.
