“SIZZLING WHERE IT COUNTS” — Kirkus Reviews
“BE PREPARED FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE.” — Midwest Book Review
- The President is gunned down before his eyes — and the whole country believes he’s the assassin.
- Nobody knows he’s an innocent contract employee with a Government agency.
- The agency insists it has never heard of him.
To 23-year-old Denny Kinney only one thing is clear: every law-enforcement officer in the country wants to put a bullet in him. If he wants to live, Denny must not only elude a massive manhunt but he and girlfriend Meesh must slip into the nation’s capital to try to uncover who set him up and who was really responsible for the President’s murder.
This riveting suspense novel by Karl Jacobs, an award-winning journalist and former top aide to a United States Senator, is more than a shocking, high-tension thriller. It will leave you wondering if the world will ever know the whole truth about the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the 1961 plane crash that killed U.N. Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold, or any other historic event where there are disturbing unanswered questions.
“Part of what makes this thriller so exceptional is that it brings to mind events surrounding the Kennedy and King assassinations. From the nuances of the protagonist’s personality and involvements to encounters between law enforcement agencies and a suspected killer on the loose, events progress swiftly and often unexpectedly, with plenty of action and political and social insights.”
– Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
Genre(s): Time Travel
When hard-hitting DC reporter Jillian Chambord learns that her twin sister, Isla, has been abducted from a luxury train traveling through the Alps, not even the threat of losing her coveted position at The Washington Daily can stop her from hopping on the next flight to France. Never mind the fact that Samuel Kelly–the sexy former CIA agent who Jillian has sworn off forever–has been assigned as the lead investigator in the case.
When Jillian and Samuel arrive in the Alps, they soon learn that their midnight train isn’t leading them to Isla, but has taken them back in time to 1937, to a night when another young woman was abducted from the same Orient Express train. Given a chance to save both women, Jillian and Samuel are unprepared for what they discover on the train that night, for the sparks that fly between them . . . and for what they’ll have to do to keep each other alive.
Midnight Train to Paris is a magical and suspenseful exploration of just how far we will go to save the ones we love.Episode List

Winner of the Compton Crook for Best First SF/F/H of the Year; with special forward by Elizabeth Moon, and brand new remarks from Jess’s second edition editor, Julie Czerneda
Dun Lady’s Jess: all woman, all heart…all horse.
When hikers Dayna and Eric find a naked and terrified young woman, they’re sure she’s the victim of foul play. But the truth is much more shocking: she isn’t human at all. She’s Dun Lady’s Jess, a horse transformed into this new shape by the spell that brought her and her rider, to whom she is utterly devoted, into this world.
Possessed now of human intelligence but still a horse deep inside, Jess desperately searches this world for her master and rider, using her fiery equine spirit to take on human idiosyncrasies–and human threats.
Other books in this series: Barrenlands, Changespell, Changespell Legacy
“….Dun Lady’s Jess is unique. Durgin has created a character who is utterly believable as both horse and horse-in-human-body. The setup is brilliant: the magic that causes the transformation is not in the horse, but external, and the creature that is Dun Lady’s Jess must adapt, must find an identity that works in both paradigms. Humans who encounter her, in either body, must also adapt to the reality that created her and that she represents. She cannot be, any longer, just another mare…she cannot be, ever, just another woman….”
–Excerpt from Elizabeth Moon’s Forward for Dun Lady’s Jess
“A thrill ride with a fantasy twist, neatly done by a knowledgeable author – short, sweet, and paced at a gallop, Dun Lady’s Jess can’t help but to win you over.”
“Horses, heroics, and magic–a great combination! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dun Lady’s Jess, a spirited and daring novel. I couldn’t put it down.”
–Kristen Britain, author of the Green Rider series
“Dun Lady’s Jess is a wonderful read for those who are horse fans and those who are just plain fantasy fans or fans of great writing.”
–Josepha Sherman, bestselling author/editor
“Dun Lady’s Jess is everything a great fantasy ought to be: Exciting, moving, and utterly original. Doranna Durgin has spun a marvelous tale, set it in a world that feels as real as our own, and populated that world with characters who will stay with you long after you read the final page. An excellent book, which I highly recommend.”
–David Coe, author of Winds of the Forelands & the LonTobyn Chronicle
“Jess is a tale of wonderfully diverse and riveting characters embroiled in extraordinary events, told with a deftness and care few authors can achieve. Once you begin, you won’t be able to put it down until you know what happens — and then you’ll wish it never stopped. I highly recommend it.”
–Diana Pharoah Francis, author of Path of Blood
“Dun Lady’s Jess is an adventure story with heart. It’s a unique idea, imaginatively explored. The characters are charming, and humanly flawed. The accurate equestrian touches are a pleasure to encounter, and Jess’ reactions, particularly while she’s still getting her feed under her, are surprisingly yet completely believable. Doranna Durgin offers the reader an unusual viewpoint of impressive versimilitude.”
–Vonda McIntyre, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author of The Moon and the Sun
“Durgin never fails to entertain with solid characters, good action, well-conceived plots, compelling narrative — and her expert background in horses always provides a real — and realistic! — treat for readers. Jess is one of the most complex and likeable characters in fantasy fiction.”
–Jennifer Roberson, author of the Karavans and Sword Dancer series
