Gone at Midnight by Jake Anderson

Gone at Midnight by Jake AndersonENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A COPY OF GONE AT MIDNIGHT BY JAKE ANDERSON!

A Los Angeles hotel with a haunting history. A missing young woman. A disturbing video followed by a shocking discovery. A cold-case mystery that has become an internet phenomenon—and for one determined journalist, a life-changing quest toward uncomfortable truths.

Twenty-one-year-old Vancouver student Elisa Lam was last heard from on January 31, 2013, after she checked into downtown L.A.’s Cecil Hotel—a 600-room building with a nine-decade history of scandal and tragedy. The next day, Elisa vanished. A search of the hotel yielded nothing. More than a week later, complaints by guests of foul-smelling tap water led to a grim discovery: Elisa’s nude body floating in a rooftop water tank, in an area extremely difficult to access without setting off alarms. The only apparent clue was a disturbing surveillance video of Elisa, uploaded to YouTube in hopes of public assistance.

As the eerie elevator video went viral, so did the questions of its tens of millions of viewers. Was Elisa’s death caused by murder, suicide, or paranormal activity? Was it connected to the Cecil’s sinister reputation? And in that video, what accounted for Elisa’s strange behavior? With the help of web sleuths and investigators from around the world, journalist Jake Anderson set out to uncover the facts behind a death that had become a macabre internet meme, as well as a magnet for conspiracy theorists.

Losing Jon by David Parrish

Losing Jon by David  ParrishENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A COPY OF LOSING JON BY DAVID PARRISH!

In 1990, Jon and Mickey Bowie, 19 year-old identical twin brothers, met up with friends to drink beers and party at a Red Roof Inn outside of Columbia, Maryland. There were fifteen teenagers and two cases of beer and the music was probably louder than it should have been. Police came to break up the party and while doing so violently beat the twin brothers, leaving their faces bloody and eyes swollen shut. Outraged, the Bowie brothers pressed charges against the police officers for excessive force. These charges led to months of harassment and intimidation by the police. Just before the brothers were to appear in court to face the police, Jon Bowie turns up dead, his body discovered on top of the backstop at the high school baseball field, and his death was immediately declared a suicide. However, as witnesses stepped forward and the events of the weeks and days leading up to Bowie's death are discovered, it became clear that this was no suicide.


Could a charge of excessive force be enough to convince a police officer to murder a teenager?

InsectInside by Paul Manganaro

InsectInside by Paul ManganaroEnter a chance to win one of 100 Kindle ebook copies of my newly published book “Insectinside” by Paul Manganaro

A dark, disturbing tale.

Has someone ever tried to trap you in a parasitic relationship?

Clair is an intelligent researcher. Before Adam knocks on her door she is in his trap. Adam is a parasite who selected her for his use. He addicts her to a cocktail of drugs to make her feel she is in love. Then he takes away her friends, her occupation and strips her of her identity. He turns her into his slave. All seems lost until Clair’s estranged daughter Diana comes for a visit. Diana is a powerhouse; a fighter who pits herself against Adam. Adam and his brothers are out to destroy the world and Diana is out to stop them.

On the surface, this is a story about monsters and horrors. At its core, it’s a story about relationships. An interplay of complex characters that questions that thing called love.

I was inspired to write this story after reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula. A dark story describing a plague of death. Written in 1897, the sensibilities of the times demanded a strict moral code. In Stoker’s novel the subject of sex is made conspicuous by its absence.

I chose a different presentation in this tale. Although there are no vampires, there is a great deal of biting and blood. The evil creatures are parasites, keeping their human hosts alive until they have fulfilled their purpose.

For adults only, this novel contains graphic sexual depictions.
