      Hello Authors and Readers,

       

      My name is Charles Shea. I'm a self published author and I'm starting this discussion in an effort to bring readers and authors together. Authors, please join me in posting your novels here. Readers, I hope you'll enjoy discovering these inexpensive novels.

       

      I'd like to introduce my Legal/Thrillers:

       

      The Shrunken Head Murders  

       

      Insanity – noun:  A defect of reason as a result of mental illness, such that a defendant does not know what he or she is doing or that it is wrong.

       

      Amy Strong is a young Criminal Defense Attorney and it’s her job to convince a jury that her client was temporarily insane when he committed murder. If she knew what would happen to her after the trial, she never would have taken the case.

       

      In the Amazon, the sewing of the lips of a shrunken head traps the spirit of the warrior. In Atlanta, the sewing of a murdered Criminal Defense Attorney’s lips is symbolic of a mouth that has been silenced for eternity. Trial lawyers make a living with their mouths…a serial killer is enforcing the ultimate Cease and Desist Order. Detective Tom Brikler must hunt down and stop the Shrunken Head Killer before another attorney is brutally murdered and mutilated.

       

      Defending Evil 

       

      Have you ever wondered how a trial lawyer can sleep at night after helping a client he/she knows is guilty, beat the legal system? I have. Have you ever wondered how an attorney would feel if that same recently acquitted client kills a second time? Again, I have, and these very questions prompted me to write a dark mystery/thriller about just such an attorney…I call it DEFENDING EVIL.

      Travis Knight is an extraordinary Criminal Defense Attorney winning high profile cases in Atlanta. One of his recently acquitted clients kills again, which has Travis and his wife Julie, questioning what he does for a living. Travis is shaken to his core, but being a consummate lawyer, he is able to move past his feelings of guilt; Julie isn’t.

      In a bizarre twist, a mysterious vigilante begins executing Travis’ clients after he wins them an acquittal. This righteous vigilante decides that the clients Travis is helping to put back into society are guilty, and don't deserve to live--the vigilante delivers ultimate justice.
       

      I hope you’ll take a look at my novels.

          Your books sound interesting.  Do you have a legal background or just a strong interest?

            One of my three suspense novels is currently priced at .99 cents. The title is Suspicions

             

            What it's about: When a neighbor boy is kidnapped for ransom, Stacey Hunter is stunned to discover that circumstantial evidence points to her husband. Not able to believe he could be involved in such a horrifying crime, she sets out to discover who is really behind the kidnapping.

            Complicating Stacey’s efforts is the odd behavior of her supervisor, Patricia Summers, who has taken a keen interest in Stacey’s husband. Though uncertain of her husband’s faithfulness, Stacey presses on with her investigation to flush out the kidnapper and is faced with losing everything she loves, as well as her own life.

                "This was so funny I was laughing most of the time I read this. I finished this book in just three hours.... Her mom was over protective and her dad reminded me a lot of mine. The love story had a lot of drama and boyfriend stealing... But what I liked most was Liz, who was a good girl that loved her sisters who she thought were more pretty than she was.

                  Wizard Heights Book 1 The Vengeance of the Wraith King 

                   

                  "Just a few miles from a normal neighborhood there lies a place that you can only imagine in your most magical dreams..."

                  When Charlie Goodfellow's family moves to a new neighborhood, the last thing the eleven year old is looking for is adventure. But one day when he is exploring a secluded, hilltop retirement community called Wizard Heights, he finds it.

                  Up there, old folks glide about in flying recliners, and sip tea to the dulcet tones of string quartets on moonlit nights. But there are more sinister forces at work, too.

                  A strange, pale boy called Whitstable befriends Charlie. After Whitstable tells Charlie about a sinister plot involving his cryogenically frozen wizard grandfather and a mysterious Egyptian Idol of Thebes, Charlie is plunged headlong into an adventure that will take him deep beneath the cobwebby catacombs of the retirement community, and into the palaces of the eclectic luminaries of Wizard Heights.

                  The story gallops along at an unstoppable pace, taking many fascinating twists and turns along the way. Wonderful characters are to be found here—action, adventure, magic, and mystery too.

                    The Mysterious Case of Doctor Octavius Plum's Incredible Ever After Machine

                     

                    When British children, Jennifer and Timothy Goodhew visit their grandfather on the isle of St. Mary's, they are surprised to find him missing. In his place they find a wily, old pirate captain, who has taken control of their grandfather's manor and its servants.

                    The captain puts the children to work—Timothy in the tumbledown graveyard at the end of the garden, and Jennifer within the manor itself. Naturally, the children are concerned about their missing grandfather and begin to investigate his disappearance.

                    In the course of their investigations, they discover that the garden surrounding the manor has become wildly overgrown. Furthermore, they are told that entrance to their grandfather's laboratory is strictly forbidden. Undaunted, the children continue their investigations, and in so doing, discover a remarkable secret and a diabolical plot that will change their lives forever.

                    This novel will, in turn, warm your heart and send chills down your spine. It leads the reader on an unforgettable journey through an eerie manor, an overgrown garden, a tumbledown graveyard, and to a gripping conclusion. An adventure story and a mystery, it is a page-turner through and through—one that is enjoyed by children (ages 9 and up) and adults alike.

                      Hello Colleen_Rose,

                       

                      I'm sorry it took so long to reply, but I was having some sort of technical difficulties when I tried unsuccessfully to reply earlier in the week.

                       

                      I have both a legal background and a strong interest in the law.

                       

                      I hope you will take a look at my Legal/Thrillers.

                            Thank you for the opportunity!  My novel Black Diamond Death is .99 right now on the Nook.  Here's some information about it :smileyhappy:

                             

                            "IN A PANIC I GASPED FOR AIR, BUT THERE WASN'T ANY. I TRIED TO CRY OUT, BUT I WAS ALONE, AND IN MY HYSTERIA IT HIT ME. I HAD FELT A SIMILAR FEELING BEFORE--LIKE MY BODY WAS GIVING OUT ON ME, AND I KNEW WHAT IT MEANT. I WAS DYING."

                            Enter the world of Sloane Monroe in Black Diamond Death...

                            A SKIER CRASHES

                            On the slopes of Park City, Utah's newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. The victim, Charlotte Halliwell, collided with a tree as she schussed her way to the bottom of the hill. But what if her death wasn't an accident at all--what if she was murdered?

                            A SISTER IS ON A MISSION

                            In Black Diamond Death, Audrey Halliwell faces a problem: finding someone who believes her story.

                            Enter Private Investigator Sloane Monroe.

                            When Audrey marches into Sloane's office with claims her sister's death was no accident Sloane is skeptical at first, but agrees to take the case. With little to go on, she questions the people in Charlotte's life and discovers Parker Stanton, a jilted ex-fiancé with plenty to hide, and as the son of a prominent businessman, he will go to any lengths to protect his secrets.

                            A SECOND BODY IS FOUND

                            Just as Sloane feels she's close to solving the case she stumbles on another dead body and is forced to re-examine the clues from the beginning, but she must tread lightly. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, her life is in danger and her every move is being tracked. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?
