DESCRIPTION:

CORNWALL, ENGLAND. In the summer of love, 1967, two children witness a murder. One, a seven-year-old boy, views it from fifty yards – the other, a young Irish girl, from miles away.

LONDON, 2006. With retirement looming, DCI John Kennedy reopens the only case he never solved: the disappearance of a young nurse, Kathy, twenty-three years earlier. A Crimewatch cold-case reconstruction follows, tracing Kathy’s last known movements. A new witness emerges, and Kennedy, finding himself on the trail of a serial killer, unwittingly sparks a sequence of evil games which lead him to ever-increasing danger.
As the investigation unfolds, it becomes apparent that the murderer is no ordinary adversary. Resourceful and cunning, it seems only the original witnesses from 1967 can stop him.
But they have yet to meet.

A gripping and compelling story, this epic tale is a must-read for fans who love non-linear plots in their reading. With many twists and turns, this crime, mystery and paranormal suspense thriller veers through many other genres, including the psychological, a unique blend sure to keep you guessing until the end!

“GREAT read. At times I had to remind myself I wasn’t reading Koontz or Barclay. Twists and turns keep you interested through every sentence. Intricate weaving of so many different characters and storylines.” Canadian Kindle Reviewer

“Psychology to the nth level, sixth senses are given credence without making lame excuses or outre explanations. Following the major players through time, their interactions on more than just the obvious levels, creates an entrancing and wondrous tale of loss and finding. Enjoy!” USA Kindle Reviewer

“There are so many different words I could use to describe this book, unique, compelling, addictive, poignant, eerie, moving, and I could still go on. But if I had to pick just one word to do this book justice, the choice would be simple. Outstanding.” UK Kindle Reviewer

“The author sucks us into a vortex of characters, places, events that leaves readers gasping for breath and clarity. He provides both and leaves us wanting more though we remain unsure of our ability too take in more. If this is truly a debut novel, be prepared, literary world, for future offerings. I wonder if Max China is the seventh son of a seventh son of a seventh son. This story, set in the British Isles, allows us to glimpse action through the one who has been given a sixth sense, through the policemen on the tracks of a Gasman Murderer, a Midnight Criminal, and a conniving blackmailer. He lets us also see the lives of the victims as they become the prey for a madman. My words do no justice to this skillfully intermingled plot with the well-fleshed characters and the psychological/paranormal drama provided. Just read it with no expectations of having read another novel like it.” USA Kindle Reviewer

“This is not your typical mystery novel, but then again it’s not your normal paranormal nor thriller novel either. This book is really three genre mixed into one deliciously tantalizing book. While this book is long and requires the reader to pay close attention so as not to get lost, it is well worth the time and effort.” USA Kindle Reviewer

“Initially I thought that this novel was going to be a dud but 10 pages in and I was hooked, it just got better and better until I couldn’t put it down, now I have to search for his other books…” Australian Kindle Reviewer

“This is a gripping tale about a serial killer, his victims, both dead and alive, and the people trying to hunt him down. The author does a brilliant job of connecting the numerous characters, building an intricate, complicated web with infinite patience.
This book doesn’t really qualify as a bed-time read – you’d better be awake and concentrating if you attempt it as the author will lead you through various lives, switching between the past and present, subtly casting out thread after thread.” German Kindle Reviewer

DESCRIPTION:

“A manically funny farce, both delightfully absurd and strangely plausible.” —Kirkus Reviews

From zero to hero…

James Flynn is an expert shot, a black belt in karate, fluent in four languages and irresistible to women. He’s also a heavily medicated patient in a Los Angeles psychiatric hospital. Flynn believes his locked ward is the headquarters of Her Majesty’s Secret Service and that he is a secret agent with a license to kill.

When the hospital is acquired by a new HMO, Flynn is convinced that the Secret Service has been infiltrated by the enemy. He escapes to save the day, and in the process, Flynn kidnaps a young Hispanic orderly named Sancho.

This crazy day trip turns into a very real adventure when Flynn is mistaken for an actual secret agent. Paranoid delusions have suddenly become reality, and now it’s up to a mental patient and a terrified orderly to bring down an insecure, evil genius bent on world domination.

Editorial Reviews:

“A brilliant homage to everyone’s favorite super-spy, and a hilarious, action-packed, made-for-the-movies thriller about a man suavely dancing along both sides of the thin line between heroism and madness.” –Matt Forbeck, New York Times bestselling author of Halo: New Blood

“Pacey and unrepentant fun, Haris Orkin’s You Only Live Once takes the James Bond mythos, gives it a swift kick in the backside and steals its wallet.” –James Swallow, New York Times bestselling author of Nomad

“Fill shaker with ice. Add equal parts Ian Fleming and Quentin Tarantino. Shake (do not stir). Garnish with Douglas Adams, and you get You Only Live Once, a delicious martini as dry as the dusty California desert.” –Dan Jolley, USA Today bestselling author of the Gray Widow Trilogy

“Haris Orkins’ You Only Live Once is a tour de force, brilliant, hilarious, and moving. Written with stunning style, it’s James Bond meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, with a generous dollop of Don Quixote thrown in. All captured in prose that scintillates and pops, the book exploding in an extraordinary climax that is wildly funny and deeply moving.” –David Scott Milton, award-winning author of Paradise Road

“If you’re looking–and who isn’t?–for a sexy, slapstick, razzle-dazzle, rock’em-sock’em re-imagining of Don Quixote as James Bond emerging from deep cover in a mental hospital to save the world, Haris Orkin’s hilarious yet touching You Only Live Once is the book for you.” –Charles Harper Webb, award-winning author of Brain Candy

You Only Live Once makes for an engrossing read offering many satisfying twists and turns. Fans of thrillers will be delighted by the various nuances Haris Orkin brings to the table as he introduces a quasi-hero who ultimately faces success despite himself. A healthy dose of humor and irony is added to create a story about a misfit in search of a mission.” –D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

DESCRIPTION:

The first title in New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend’s light-hearted, feel-good paranormal series.
~~~~~
Talk about getting your signals crossed…

When her brother cancels their backcountry ski trip, Robyn Maxwell takes it in stride. The fact she’s deaf doesn’t make her survival skills any weaker, and she’s been craving the chance to escape into the Yukon wilderness. Only the sexy beast of a man she bumps into at the cabin starts cravings of another kind, setting her hormones raging as well as raising strange questions about wolves, and mates, and pack challenges.

All wilderness guide Keil Lynus wanted was a nice quiet retreat before challenging for the Alpha position of his Alaskan pack. He wasn’t planning on meeting his destined mate, or finding out she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf. Between dealing with his accident-prone younger brother, a deaf mate with an attitude and an impending duel to the death, his week–and his bed–is suddenly full.

Far from the relaxing getaway any of them had in mind…

Warning: Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “talking with your hands”. Includes dangerous use of sarcasm and hot nookie in a remote wilderness sauna.
