D EADLY PLEASURES MAGAZINE Review by George Easter
I’ve been a big fan of this series since its inception
with GRIFT SENSE. Swain has a natural gift for storytelling.
The various scams are fascinating in their ingenuity and for
the clever detection that thwarts them. And Tony Valentine
and his crew are among my favorite characters in
crime fiction. It’s a shame that this and WILDCARD are
only available on the Kindle (or on an IPad with a free
Kindle app – which is how I read them). He’s also published
two other e-book originals – one a Jack Carpenter novel
and the other a stand-alone (his first novel). I’d say that it’s
almost worth buying a Kindle to read them, but I’ll let you
make that decision.
JACKPOT by James Swain Rating: A This novel is set in
modern-day with Tony Valentine’s son playing a prominent
role as his sidekick.
Tony has a score to settle. Decades before, his
brother-in-law was gunned down by a gang of ruthless con
men, each of whom Valentine has sworn to track down.
Now, only one is left, the cold-blooded Bronco Marchese.
Valentine goes to Nevada to bring Bronco to
justice, while also helping the police figure out how
someone is stealing hundreds of slot machine jackpots
without ever touching the machines.
From the national bestselling novelist the Houston Press calls “One of today’s best suspense writers” comes a electrifying story of murder, greed, and revenge.
Ex-cop Tony Valentine has a score to settle. Decades before, his brother-in-law was gunned down by a gang of ruthless con men, each of whom Valentine has sworn to track down. Now, only one is left, the cold-blooded Bronco Marchese.
Valentine goes to Nevada to bring Bronco to justice, while also helping the police figure out how someone is stealing hundreds of slot machine jackpots without ever touching the machines. It’s a case that only Valentine with his amazing “grift sense” can solve. Along the way, he will put his own life in peril, and risk everything that he holds dear, to bring his life-long enemy to justice.

I n 1994, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson were brutally murdered at her home in Brentwood, California. O.J. Simpson was tried for the crime in a case that captured the attention of the American people, but was ultimately acquitted of criminal charges. The victims’ families brought a civil case against Simpson, which found him liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole committing battery with malice and oppression. In 2006, HarperCollins announced the publication of a book in which O.J. Simpson told how he hypothetically would have committed the murders. In response to public outrage that Simpson stood to profit from these crimes, HarperCollins canceled the book. A Florida bankruptcy court awarded the rights to the Goldmans in August 2007 to satisfy the civil judgment in part. The Goldman family views the book as his confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read this book and learn the truth. This is O.J. Simpson’s original manuscript, approved by him, with up to 14,000 words of additional key commentary. –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

“Wow! Reads like a action film in reeling off in your head!” -By Joanna Daneman –Sub-Human Review
(VINE VOICE) (TOP 10 REVIEWER) (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
“A Better Read Than Many of the Big Names in the Genre.” -By Michael J. Crow –Sub-Human Review(VINE VOICE)
“Post-Human, a noteworthy sci-fi novel” -Examiner.com –Post-Human Review
“A thought-provoking, energetic sci-fi book, with a robust dose of high-octane exploits.” -A.F. Stewart, author of Chronicles of the Undead –Trans-Human Review
The series started in 2009 with Post-human, followed by it’s sequel, 2011′s Trans-Human, and then leading to the prequel, published in the summer of 2012, Sub-Human. The trilogy can be read in the order of publication or in the chronological order of the entire epic story. The ebook is ordered according to the narrative, but reading it in the order of publication is its own, rewarding experience. It’s all up to your preference.
Readers have taken to calling this the “Human Series,” and why not? It’s the story of humanity’s future, both the possible bliss, the possible torment, and all of the in between. It might expand your view of what “human” really means, it might make you consider the pleasures and pains of immortality, and reflect on the extraordinary benefits and profound danger of strong A.I. All of this delivered in an epic series, paced faster than most novels, with twists and turns around almost every page, and a set of characters with whom you’ll fall in love.

H ave you ever awoken to find the life you’ve always wanted, to be a life of always wanting? A life of always chasing? Then one day you stop in your tracks, questioning what it is you are wanting and chasing? And you realize a harsh truth: you’ve been running blind for years.
In two short weeks, that’s what workaholic Cole Jansen discovers. Still single at thirty-two, he’s more focused on managing his clients’ money and his own material success than he is with any woman who gets close, or reconciling his estranged relationship with his parents.
But when his father’s ill health leads him from urban Cedar Rapids, Iowa to the tiny rural community of Harmony, Minnesota for a rare visit, his myopic life is suddenly questioned when he meets Rachel Miller, a young Amish woman committed to her church and family – and conflicted by forbidden dreams of meeting him, the man in the pictures she ritualistically dusts each week as part of her cleaning duties at his parents’ home.
No sooner than such an unlikely courtship begins to flourish, a series of tragedies strike, and commitment and character must be confronted, bringing each of their paths to a crossroads and shaking the foundations of their lives. Will the threat of excommunication and career suicide be too great? Or is there hope for such an improbable love as this?
My Father’s House, a love story of truth, tenderness and tragedy that will touch your heart.
