Budapest Noir  

 

Budapest Noir

 

Overview

The passing of the Hungarian prime minister before he could realize his dream of a fascist state has little effect on crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon. Life—and death—go on in the bustling old city, and a late-night tip soon leads him to a crime scene where a young woman lies dead, a Jewish prayer book in her purse. Disturbed by the bizarre circumstances—the corpse of a beautiful, well-groomed, religious victim abandoned in one of Budapest's seedier neighborhoods—Gordon is determined to unravel the mystery of her demise, especially after her shocking identity is revealed.

 

The investigation will lead him deep into the city's dark underbelly—a shadow world of pornographers, crime syndicates, and Communist cells—and to the highest echelons of power, where one of Hungary's most influential executives plans to make an economic killing through his strong political ties to Germany's leaders...if he can somehow keep secret the fact that he was, at one time, Jewish.

 

A gripping and evocative thriller, brimming with suspense and breathtaking political intrigue, Vilmos Kondor's Budapest Noir is a richly atmospheric tale of murder and betrayal from a remarkable new voice in noir detective fiction.

Re: NEW RELEASES!

This one comes out next week:

 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we are thrilled to announce the first ever Murder She Writes anthology, Guns and Roses…a collection of ten never-before published short stories and novellas, each penned by one of the Murder She Writes authors.

 

Guns and Roses will be available in digital format at all e-retailers next week, a rocking 150,000 word collection for just $4.99!

 

Fire up your Nooks, ereaders and iPads, because you are going to love this one.

 

This project has been months in the making, inspired by our shared love of suspense and romance, our desire to work together on something completely unique, and our excitement about the magical synergy we’ve discovered as co-bloggers and great friends.

 

Guns and Roses wasn’t always easy; we all have deadlines, contracts, and, of course, our blog posts to write.  It wasn’t always smooth; there have been no less the four quadrillion emails exchanged.  And, heaven knows, it wasn’t always painless…can you imagine ten, count ‘em ten, opinions on one cover?  But creating this collection was always fun! We’ve had a blast putting together what we hope is the first of many anthologies that showcase our characters and series and give our loyal community a chance to discover all of our voices in one place.  We don’t think any other group blog has ever done a project like this, so we’re extra proud to be first out of the gate with this type of collection.

 

Guns and Roses promises thrills, chills, romance, intrigue, passion, danger, murder, and a whole lotta love.  Some of the stories connect to our most popular series (Rough Riders! Housewife Assassin! Bullet Catchers!), and others will introduce you to an entirely new and unforgettable cast of characters.  Ranging in length from 10,000 to 25,000 words each, the stories run the gamut from deeply dark and intense to, well, there’s a Bobbie Faye novella!  

 

Laugh-line alert.  We’ve also included a Lorelei James short story, so you know it’s gonna get hawt in here, and Allison Brennan makes sure you sleep with the lights on.  And rumor has it Bullet Catcher boss Lucy Sharpe makes an appearance…with her baby.

These short stories and novellas are not samplers or excerpts; each is a complete tale of suspense and romance.  Nor are they reissues: every one has been written exclusively for this collection.  Our only criteria — other than a fabulous romantic suspense — is that each story mention a gun (natch!) and a rose (love!).  Here’s what you can look forward to reading in Guns and Roses:

 

Dead Flowers by Lori Armstrong

 

Cynical, bad girl PI Julie Collins isn’t the hearts and flowers type, especially not after she’s spent the last few weeks spying on cheating spouses. So when Julie suspects her man, Martinez, may be stepping out on her, she sees red and decides to take matters into her own hands. Let’s just hope Cupid’s Bow gets to Martinez  before Julie does.

 

Above Reproach by Allison Brennan

 

Sex crimes detective Selena Black knows high-powered government attorney Greg Keller is the River City Rapist; proving it is another matter. Keller enjoys the cat and mouse game with the blonde detective, and makes sure she knows she’s exactly his type. As every possible avenue of investigation is shut down by the courts or her boss, Selena realizes that if someone doesn’t do something to stop Keller, more women will suffer–and she may be next.

 

The Housewife Assassin’s Bloody Valentine by Josie Brown

 

What is CIA contract assassin Donna Stone’s idea of a Valentine’s Day getaway? Certainly not orchestrating a jailbreak out of a Mexican prison for a notorious drug lord. But because he has intel as to the whereabouts of an international terrorist organization planning a Valentine’s massacre, there will be no intimate dinner for two or couples massage for Donna and her ops leader, Jack Craig. Just plenty of sun, surf, submarines, sharks… oh yeah, and sex.

 

Bobbie Faye’s Whacked Out, No Good, Really Sucky, Hot Mess of a Wedding by Toni

McGee Causey

 

Bobbie Faye Sumrall, Cajun Contraband Days Queen, gun expert, and ultimate professional in being in the wrong place at the wrong time, absolutely positively does not want to go through with the ridiculous wedding that Trevor’s forcing her to agree to, but she soon finds out she has more important things to worry about–like surviving the plot to make her disappear when she’s set up as a fall guy for the theft of a priceless religious icon. And that’s the good news.

 

Blood and Roses by Sylvia Day

 

When insurance investigator Anastasia Miller sets out to retrieve the rose-hued pink diamonds stolen in a recent heist, she finds herself working alongside former flame, deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Monroe — the man she loved enough to leave behind.

 

Nightfall by Laura Griffin

 

Stranded on an icy road as darkness falls, Holly Henriksen knows she is in trouble. A charming stranger stops to help and Holly decides to trust him, but soon finds out he is harboring a deadly secret.

 

King of Hearts (A Rough Rider Short Story) by Lorelei James

 

Deputy Cam McKay is devastated after dealing with a Valentine’s Day murder/suicide in his small county. Will allowing his family to see the dark past that haunts him, help heal him?

 

A Punishing Night by Sophie Littlefield

 

Detective Joe Bashir returns to his alma mater to investigate the stabbing death of a male college student. Rumors of date rape and fraternity hazing complicate a sensitive case as Joe tries to balance the demands of the investigation with caring for his elderly father. Help – and possibly romance – come from an unexpected source.

 

Pick Your Poison (A Bullet Catchers Novella) by Roxanne St. Claire

 

Benjamin Youngblood’s only chance to prove he’s worthy of being a Bullet Catcher is to find and stop an assassin.  On probation from the elite security force, Ben has to rely on instinct and brains…and one feisty flower farmer.  When Callie Parrish discovers her entire crop of rare black roses has been stolen, she’d partner with the devil himself to recoup her loss.  It doesn’t take her long to realize she’s done just that…and the road to hell is paved with poisonous petals and deadly kisses.

 

Rebel Rose  by Karin Tabke

 

For Detective Cash Cantrell, hunting down a University serial killer is as routine as strapping on his gun each morning.  Until he comes face to face with meddlesome coed, Rebel Yell Culpepper. He doesn’t know if he should arrest her or kiss her, but one thing Cash knows for sure, Rebel is key to finding the murderer, and the killer knows it too…

Sorry, Peg! I had just been talking to a friend of mine named Peggy before I posted this, so I must have had her on the brain! I'll go back and correct that.

American Caliphate  

 

 

 

Archaeologists Jila Wells and Ben Juarez reluctantly

 

return to Peru to join Professor Beckham’s distinguished

 

team at Santiago de Paz pyramids. Jila is still

 

haunted by the prior dig which ended in a near-fatal

 

ambush. But the ruins hide a document that will shock

 

the Islamic world.

 

Details found in an ancient diary tell of an illegal expedition

 

to Spanish Peru, intending to bring the word

 

of Allah to the pagan Americans.

 

As the archaeologists brace for the ravages of El Niño,

 

Jila and Ben hurry to complete their excavations. But

 

they’re not the only ones interested in this project.

 

Other forces are determined to keep the document hidden.

Shore Loser  

 

 

Doug Danielson

 

 

When JAKE MORTENSEN and his “always

 ready to party” crew are sent to Mexico to retrieve

 a stolen 50-foot ketch called SHORE LOSER, his

 first venture as a repo-yacht captain places his

 three friends in danger and almost gets him killed

 in the process. He doesn’t know it, but concealed on board

 SHORE LOSER is a package so valuable some San Diego businessmen would resort to murder to

 recover it and others would be shocked to learn what it contained. While trying to protect the boat and his crew, Jake discovers the hidden goods, exposes an investment scam that rocks the San Diego yachting community, helps catch the bad guys, and learns the real reason why the Russians were unable to participate in the ’95 America’s Cup.

No Bells  

 

Fans of F. M. Meredith’s long-running Rocky Bluff

Police Department mysteries will be happy to learn

the newest book may be the best yet. In No Bells,

Gordon Butler gets his first leading role in this clever

ensemble series. Butler is like Joe Btfsplk, the

cartoon character in Al Capp’s Li’l Abner, a poor sap

for whom things never quite work out. Meredith’s plot

– her best yet – is a perfect fit for the character.

Waifs Of The Wasteland 

 

Wayne Beauvais

 

 

At the height of Prohibition in 1925 Hollywood, Joe Holder, an ex-con just released from prison, seeks to reclaim a lost love. But there is a hitch – in the years since he has been locked up, she has become a movie star. Amid the glitter and grit of silent filmmaking, Joe soon finds he has two rivals for Rose Allen’s affection – an actor named Yancey Dix and Hollywood itself. Yet, Joe cannot give up this woman who is tattooed in his heart. He must win her back, thus beginning his conversion from a roughneck to “a gent what can star in his own flickers.” Told by Pooch, a pickpocket and Joe’s sidekick, WAIFS takes the reader back to the first golden age of tinseltown. It is a hectic world filled not only with movie folk but also with bootleggers and socialist-labor leaders, sassy flappers and newshounds. In their midst appears a genuine tough guy who reaches for a star – and nearly captures her.
