Every time you appear on screen someone will die…
That’s the stark warning issued to Jessica Lee, the undisputed ‘Queen of Trash TV.’
She’s the host of a confessional talk show on network television with millions of fans.
But the popular reality TV programme – which aims to name, shame and ultimately humiliate abusive family members – has also made her a fair few enemies.
Attractive, assured, ambitious and razor sharp, Jessica suddenly receives a chilling threat pressuring her to scrap the program and stop appearing on TV all together.
Proof that this is no idle threat, the first victim, a young woman, is found dead with her throat cut.
Jessica and her bosses face an agonising choice – take the programme off the air or risk more murders.
They decide to defy the killer, for fear of setting a dangerous precedent, but there are dire consequences.
Charged with trying to stop the carnage is DCI Sam Quinn who has been seconded to the Met’s ‘Celebrity Crime Squad’.
Quinn is particularly qualified following the murder of his own actress wife Karen 16 months earlier, a tragedy which propelled him towards gambling and eventually into the clutches of local gangster Baz Carter, when his debts mounted up.
But how low is the Network prepared to go to protect their ratings and is there any remorse at the price innocent victims have to pay?
How does the killer select his victims in his bid to make Jessica suffer – and what ultimately is to be her fate?
Can DCI Quinn get Carter’s goons off his back long enough to follow the crimson tide to its seemingly inevitable conclusion?
Stark Warning is an icily precise thriller that chills and delights in equal measure as it lays bare some of the realities behind reality TV and the all-too-human frailties that beset even the strongest among us.

Armed with only her Zombie delivery van, good intentions, and the business card of a handsome cop named Alex, she must find the killer, save the flower shop, and keep from ending up in the next casket. If she can dodge burning bushes, the plague of a polygamist ex, and her mother’s Mormon Mafia Spy Network, her life with Alex and her shop could become the perfect arrangement.

by Joe Klingler
One man on a decades old mission. A woman who hunts him. And the bullet they share.
Joe Klingler’s acclaimed debut novel explodes from the remnants of a war long past to headlines of Washington secrets masquerading as corporate incompetence when two modern-day warriors face off. Both skilled at violence. And deception. Both accustomed to winning.
Summer greets the land of the midnight sun as a lone rider races across the last American wilderness, delivering on a promise he made long ago. He has many names, but the world only knows a shadow called the Demon.
Claire Ferreti, an Army sniper soon to be drawn into a black-ops mission, sips sake in Washington D.C. with her lover, a young, ambitious General whose geosecurity specialty remains classified. When a boy finds a small machine, Claire and the Demon embark on a collision course that leads to a test of skill, a clash of ideologies, and Claire’s unconscious body lying in a typhoon-ravaged jungle. In that instant she becomes the hunted, the Demon’s tool for survival, and an unforeseen threat. As the General pursues them into a labyrinth of cyber-secrets, political necessity and financial reality collide like a fireball piercing steel pipe.
