Take Down (The Billy Cunningham Series Book 1)
by James Swain
Whoever says crime doesn’t pay isn’t doing it right.
There are hundreds of casinos in Las Vegas, and Billy Cunningham knows how to rip off every one. His scams are a thing of beauty—so perfectly orchestrated that onlookers believe he and his crew are winning fair and square. In a town where bosses will kill to protect their profits, Billy can’t afford to make mistakes, but even the best-laid plans can go wrong…
Desperate to keep his team out of jail, Billy agrees to help stop a legendary family of thieves from taking down a casino. But he has no intention of breaking the cheater’s code: never rat out your own kind. He’s running his own con on the casino’s psycho owner and his vicious, violent wife. Throw in a murderous drug dealer, a vengeful gaming agent, and the girl Billy’s never forgotten, and this scam artist is playing for sky-high stakes: a cool eight million, and the chance to live long enough to spend it.

Sam’s Song: A Sam Smith Mystery
by Hannah Howe
Love Hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that’s where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realising that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end.
Love Hurts. For me, Samantha Smith, Enquiry Agent, love arrived at the end of a fist. First, I had to contend with an alcoholic mother, who took her frustrations out on me throughout my childhood, then my husband, Dan, who regarded domestic violence as an integral part of marriage. But I survived. I obtained a divorce, kept my sense of humour and retained an air of optimism. I established my business and gained the respect of my peers. However, I was not prepared for Dan when he re-entered my life, or for the affection showered on me by Dr Alan Storey, a compassionate and rather handsome psychologist.
Sam’s Song. This is the story of a week that changed my life forever.

The Novel World of Angela Crown
by Sala Deib
In the aftermath of her father and fiancé’s tragic deaths, Angela Crown withdraws into the fictional world of novels. Isolated and traumatized, she declares herself a “professional reader,” championing the rights of the fictional.
Entering the world of her current reading material, Angela leads a rebellion among the book’s characters, a decision which brings her into direct conflict with the author, who fights back with his most potent weapon—his own writing. His revisions pit Angela and her fictional followers against a vicious, author-worshipping gang of thugs, double agents, and devastating rewrites.
Fictional freedom clashes with authorial intent, while Angela struggles to differentiate between reality and insanity. Is her battle an illusion, prompted by emotional trauma, or is she, in fact, fighting a real war against an implacable foe?
The Novel World of Angela Crown explores the extremes to which violent crime drives its victims. Whether Angela is fighting for fictional victims or her own sanity, her passion and dedication will long be remembered.
