Xenon Phobia

I was Dead. When the medical examiner cut away the clothes that covered my lifeless corpse to perform the routine autopsy, he saw the warning that I had etched into the cold dead flesh that was once the skin that covered my flat stomach:

The time of my death was 3:15 AM. The cause of my death was a lethal dose of Morphine that was injected directly into my heart. My death was ruled as a homicide, But there’s only one problem with that. I am still here, and now I have a little vendetta to take care of. -Xenon Aira 54

He appeared so confused as to why the CSI team didn’t mention that there were words cut into my skin. He turned to get his camera so he could document this newly found evidence in the case of my murder. When he turned to take the picture, I cut the lights. I didn’t want that message to fall into the wrong hands. Using the fire of my wrath, I burned my body in the darkness. Watching it burn was liberating. When the lights came on any resemblance of me was gone. To the human world I, Xenon Aira, was gone, but hate doesn’t die that easily.

Take my heart, forever

“Meet Siddhartha, a good lawyer but a bad human.
Meet Rahul, a good human but a bad doctor.
And meet Shuchi, a good human, and an exceptionally well doctor.
Shuchi tries to make a good human out of Siddhartha and a good doctor out of Rahul, but a bomb blast transforms their lives.
Read this revolutionary tale to know how Siddhartha will get a unique PIL passed in the courtroom and Rahul will perform a life-changing surgery, to save the girl they love.”

Up To No Good

Rachel likes to think she’s inquisitive. Her husband Brian says she’s a snoop. They’ve been married for 15 years, they work together in their home, and she’s approaching the dreaded 40th birthday. This humdrum combination has made their marriage a bit stale.

Maybe that’s why her nosy nature has escalated. She’s gotten it into her head that a house down the road might be used to make adult films. Her clues? The blinds are always drawn, and there are never any garbage cans at the curb. Obviously no one lives in the house. They just use it late at night for porn videos.

As she and Brian look into this mystery, they find that the adrenaline rush of getting caught works as an aphrodisiac as well.

But if her snooping keeps discovering unexpected dirt, it may be the last thing she ever does.

The Third Step

Dark, gritty, and riddled with back alley characters, The Third Step is one man’s journey into the black recesses of his own soul…

Meet Frankie, a young, disaffected amateur boxer, really more of a punching bag, a drunk and a drug addict. He is a loser at love, except for his relationship with his grandma, who, rumor has it, is a white witch. She, along with a handful of others, serve as his moral compass.

Frankie fights a lifelong struggle to find an understanding of the creator of the universe, not the poisoned caricature painted by the church and the “holy” people who seem to torment him.

His journey takes him from the East Coast down to New Orleans to face confrontations with his demons, both real and imagined. Along the way, the story is littered with tales of drug smuggling, murder, an affair with a woman who may be the devil herself, and an ultimate quest for revenge.

Frankie comes to terms with his addictions, but his search for a deeper understanding of this God entity and his need to connect with his soul could be his ultimate addiction, one that may follow him beyond the grave…

Payback is a fast-paced novel involving two assassins, the gangster Bugsy Siegel and an undercover FBI agent. They travel to Italy for Hitler’s state visit in 1938 to kill him, with additional help from the anti-fascist Mafia.

In the aftermath of the assassination chaos ensues as the Nazi leaders are unaware of the dramatic changes taking place in Germany during their absence. Mussolini makes new plans of his own in the light of the events.

Payback has been described as “one of the best ‘what if?’ novels since ‘Fatherland,”(Kim Kinrade, author of “Rockets of the Reich”)  “a great read with an amazing plot that kept me always wanting more,” (David Avoura King, author of “Hitler Out of Time”) “strong characters and surprising twists and turns,” (Sandra Saidak, author of “From the Ashes”) “a first-rate thriller that keeps the heart racing to the very last page.” (James Thayer, author of “S-Day”).

The Latina President and The Conspiracy to Destroy Her

U.S. President Isabel Aragon Tennyson embarks on a fearless crusade to rein in the financial industry and other rich and powerful forces in the U.S. and around the world. But she is up against a ruthless international conspiracy determined to destroy her first. The ensuing conflict results in assassination, impeachment and murder. The Latina President is not a true story. But it could be. Its themes and conflicts are as current as today’s headlines and newscasts. The story skims the surface between fiction and reality, told by an author who himself spent decades immersed in the tense and turbulent world of high stakes politics. The Latina President is suspenseful, topical, important.

TRISOMY XXI

Sixteen-year-old Joshua Allen was born with an extra chromosome—a genetic aberration known as Trisomy XXI, or Down Syndrome.  When a serious accident leaves him in a coma at the hospital, Joshua receives a mysterious injection that endows him with supernatural powers.  The transformed teen is linked to a string of bizarre, unexplained deaths that have the town’s sheriff and the coroner completely baffled. But when a ghastly creature from another planet lands on Earth and begins its hunt for Joshua—viciously slaughtering anyone in its path in order to complete its deadly mission—Joshua and his friends are thrown into a world of terror.  What follows is a horrific life-and-death struggle with the seemingly-indestructible extraterrestrial being. The salvation of an entire race of aliens hangs in the balance…

 Trisomy XXI is vivid, imaginative, and unputdownable. Resplendent with twists, turns, chills, thrills and a pulse-racer of a plot, Trisomy XXI will leave readers breathless. Richly-drawn characters, meticulous plotting, and a sensational storyline make for an intelligent, evocative, electrifying novel.  An extraordinary new voice in the world of horror fiction, novelist G.A. Minton delivers a spinetingler of the highest order in his debut novel, Trisomy XXI. 

TRISOMY XXI by G.A. Minton has been judged and named a Benjamin Franklin Digital Award SILVER HONOREE by the Independent Book Publishers Association (the IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the United States), describing the novel as “A very creative story. . .an interesting use of the human genetic syndrome. Seemingly, a way to help all Trisomy XXI humans.” TRISOMY XXI received this prestigious award based on exceptional content, design, and use of technology.

“Trisomy XXI is a fun, exciting science fiction adventure. The writing is spectacular, and author G.A. Minton has a great talent for describing his scenes and characters in vividly colorful detail.  Minton’s ability to drive the story across the genres makes for decidedly entertaining reading.  I highly recommend this book to teens and adults who are fans of adventurous science fiction!” –  Paige Lovitt for Reader Views.

“The popular trend of adding science fiction elements to horror goes well beyond jumping through portals as is evident in G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI.  Minton offers up a compelling, frightening, and surprisingly touching genre blend that both horror and sci-fi readers will enjoy.” – Becky Spratford for The Reader’s Shelf at Library Journal Reviews.

“I enjoyed Trisomy XXI by G.A. Minton and I hope to read more of his novels in the future as they portray a great writing style!” – Chris Kyle (sixteen-year-old book reviewer from READER VIEWS).

“Author  G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI is a book with an exciting and unique premise that will keep readers turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. I definitely enjoyed Trisomy XXI. Author G.A. Minton has made a bold choice in choosing a young man with Down Syndrome as the protagonist of this book, and has done a great job at making him so much more than just a stereotype of someone with a disability. This read had action almost from the very beginning and will definitely be able to keep readers on the edge of their seats, even gasping with surprise at times. Any reader who enjoys a great work of horror should definitely grab Trisomy XXI. I am pleased to recommend this book, and will look for more from author G.A. Minton in the very near future!” – 5-STAR Review by Chris Fischer for Readers’ Favorite

“I absolutely loved this book and everything about it. G.A. Milton created a well-rounded small town full of the usual characters one would find in any small town USA. Little do they realize they are soon to be at ground zero for a series of bizarre events. The characters are believable and comfortable. The events are mind bending but flow logically through each twist and turn. I never saw what was coming next but enjoyed the ride!” – Goodreads 5-STAR Review

Behind Closed Doors

This really was a page-turner! I started reading it at 10.00pm, made myself  stop to sleep at 02.00am, then woke and finished it in an hour. That says it all. It’s creepy, disturbing, even scary: I kept trying to find a flaw in the narrator’s logic (how could she be so helpless?) but her tormentor’s ice-cold insanity pre-empted her every bid for freedom and outwitted her every time. A chilling, tension-filled read.

Left of Boom

On September 11, 2001, Doug Laux was a freshman in college, on the path to becoming a doctor. But with the fall of the Twin Towers came a turning point in his life. After graduating he joined the Central Intelligence Agency, determined to get himself to Afghanistan and into the center of the action. Through persistence and hard work he was fast-tracked to a clandestine operations position overseas. Dropped into a remote region of Afghanistan, he received his baptism by fire. Frustrated by bureaucratic red tape, a widespread lack of knowledge of the local customs and culture and an attitude of complacency that hindered his ability to combat the local Taliban, Doug confounded his peers by dressing like a native and mastering the local dialect, making contact and building sources within several deadly terrorist networks. His new approach resulted in unprecedented successes, including uncovering the largest IED network in the world, responsible for killing hundreds of US soldiers. Meanwhile, Doug had to keep up false pretenses with his family, girlfriend and friends–nobody could know what he did for a living–and deal with the emotional turbulence of constantly living a lie. His double life was building to an explosive resolution, with repercussions that would have far reaching consequences.

Almost Mortal

 

Almost Mortal is a legal thriller with a metaphysical twist. The plot touches on many unique religious questions and delves into the interplay between forensic science and spiritual beliefs. Mainly though, it is a fast-moving mystery with a lot of surprises.

 

Synopsis: Emerging criminal defense attorney Sam Young has always known he had a gift. Or a curse. He thinks of them as minor psychic abilities. When Sam is hired by an attractive young nun named Camille Paradisi, he agrees to help discover the identity of a serial killer in order to prevent Camille’s pastor from being exposed for not reporting the man after a confession – thereby allowing another murder to occur. While Sam’s psychic abilities increase as he investigates the case and gets closer to Camille, he realizes that the enigmatic nun is not revealing the complete truth.

Camille shares an old journal anonymously mailed to the church, which she believes may have been authored by the killer/confessor. The journal, which begins in Argentina in the 1940’s, purports to tell the life story of a man with mind control and other special powers who claims to be a descendant of the fallen angels cast out of heaven by God. As Sam learns more about the murders, the journal author, and Camille, he begins to realize the so called “Rosslyn Ripper” case may have ancient implications beyond his imagination.

Satin Island

Satin Island by Tom McCarthy

Kindlesatinisland

Meet U. – a talented and uneasy figure currently pimping his skills to an elite consultancy in contemporary London. His employers advise everyone from big businesses to governments, and, to this end, expect their ‘corporate anthropologist’ to help decode and manipulate the world around them – all the more so now that a giant, epoch-defining project is in the offing.

Instead, U. spends his days procrastinating, meandering through endless buffer-zones of information and becoming obsessed by the images with which the world bombards him on a daily basis: oil spills, African traffic jams, roller-blade processions, zombie parades. Is there, U. wonders, a secret logic holding all these images together – a codex that, once cracked, will unlock the master-meaning of our age? Might it have something to do with South Pacific Cargo Cults, or the dead parachutists in the news? Perhaps; perhaps not.

As U. oscillates between the visionary and the vague, brilliance and bullshit, Satin Island emerges, an impassioned and exquisite novel for our disjointed times.
