C URLY BILL AND RINGO
Why did the legendary gunfighter, Ringo, come to Boot Hill? Rumors and innuendo ignite the small frontier town.
Did the wealthy rancher, Willy Gibson, hire him to combat the cattle rustlers? Was he here to even up some old grudges? Or to hunt down the men who tried to kill him?
Miss Sarah, the most beautiful woman in town, seemed in a much different mood after he checked in at the hotel where she worked.
Curly Bill knew who he was, or thought he should, since they rode together for a time. Curly also remembered that around Ringo, you always watched for signs of trouble, if you were smart.
“Would you mind telling me why you’re in Boot Hill, when you’re supposed to be in hell?” Curly asks.
Ringo glanced at him out of those cold clear blue eyes. “I came back,” he said quietly. “I got lonesome down there. Kept thinking about some fellows I should have taken with me.”

A Lovely, Indecent Departure is the riveting and emotionally-charged debut from a promising new voice in literary thrillers, and a captivating story of a mother’s love and desperation set amidst the heart wrenching landscape of child custody.
Anna Miller wants only one thing, her son, and she will do anything to keep him. When a district court awards custody of Oliver to his father, she abducts the five year old and flees to Italy where with her family’s help they disappear into the fabric of her native homeland. Told in prose that is both stripped-down and overpowering, Gilbert shapes the everyday conflict of child custody into a stunning search for sense of worth. Standing in the young woman’s way is Evan Meade, the boy’s guileful and mean-spirited father, who hires a private investigator when the efforts of the embattled local sheriff, Monroe Rossi, fail to track them down. But as the investigation draws them all closer to Anna, Evan’s true nature betrays itself and the question of what’s in the child’s best interest becomes not so clear anymore.
Objectively detailed, in a voice that refuses to intrude on the minds of its characters, A Lovely, Indecent Departure, captures in stark detail a world in which modern archetypes are turned upside down and shows what an extraordinary splash Steven Lee Gilbert has made with his first novel.

“ It was a Talent neither ever wanted, yet it might just be what will save all of us.”
Imagine if Clive Cussler and Spider Robinson sat down for a cup of coffee and decided to write an adventure thriller together, featuring an unlikely pair of heroes thrown in among stone-cold killers, a shadowy organization whose true motives are unclear and a device that could literally start Doomsday.
That’s TRIANGLE: FALSE MIRROR, the brilliant debut novel from D. G. Speirs.
Steve Tate and Amy Rogers are Talents – people cursed with an extra ability gifted to them through tragedy – for Amy, the death of her adoptive parents in a car crash that she alone survived; for Steve, the brutal murder of his sister and mother. Each thinks they are alone and unique, until the day their paths cross in the Bahamas – when Steve discovers the woman who murders Amy’s boyfriend in front of them is the same one from his past.
Chasing this killer plunges Steve and Amy headlong into a much larger conflict – a fight led by TRIANGLE, an organization that works in the shadows to keep humanity safe from all types of chaos. Triangle wants this woman as badly as Steve and Amy do, but for an even more urgent reason – she’s after the FALSE MIRROR, one of Triangle’s most dangerous projects, a device that in the wrong hands is capable of destroying the world as we know it.
Now Steve and Amy must quickly learn to work together as they pursue their quarry across the globe, from the deserts of New Mexico to the waters of San Francisco Bay, from the beaches of the Caribbean to the streets of Tokyo, and from deep underground to the very edge of space itself. Yet even as they draw closer to her, they discover clues that she may hold the key to an even greater mystery…
…who they really are.
TRIANGLE: FALSE MIRROR is a fun, high-speed thriller that jumps straight out of today’s headlines, races around the globe at a breakneck pace, yet also questions how much we take for granted about the way things work, and how vulnerable that makes us all.
“You’ve written a real page-turner!” –– Mark Palmer, screenwriter (“Kim Possible”, “Penguins of Madagascar”).
