18mm Blues, by Gerald A. Browne
A tale of greed and murder than spans decades, this novel by best-selling author Gerald A. Browne takes us into the intriguing world of the gem trade. Vivid characters populate the story - good guys, bad guys, innocent bystanders who aren't so innocent - that revolves around rumors of incredibly rare blue pearls somewhere in the Malay Archepelago. I really enjoyed narrating this one!
Deadly Lessons, by Ken Englade
A seductress, a student, and a murder in a small New England town. The perfect life of newlyweds, Pam and Gregg Smart, was shattered in 1990 when Gregg was shot dead. Who did it, and why? This is a true story that sounds like fiction.
Soul Forge: A First Civilization's Legacy Novel, Book 3, by Terry W. Ervin II
In a desperate attempt to save her daughter's life, Supreme Enchantress Thulease recruits Mercenary Flank Hawk to accompany her across hostile lands seeking a cure. The mercenary and enchantress, and their stalwart company, must survive brutal beasts and ruthless nomads roaming the Southern Continent's harsh desert. Then, the untamed wilds of the Northern Mountains must be traversed in a final bid to reach their ultimate goal-the Soul Forge. Even if Flank Hawk and Thulease reach the mythical forge in time, can its magic revive the ailing young enchantress, the one whose life is somehow tied to the Kingdom of Keesee's ultimate fate?
Crustaceans, by Willaim Meikle
A cast of giant crabs, evolved over centuries, descends on a small coastal town and, having feasted, make their way to the city using the sewer system. Soon they are swarming around Manhattan, hunted and harried by a SWAT team tasked with ridding the city of the menace...before the menace gets big enough to rid itself of the city.
Relic Tech: The Crax War Chronicles, by Terry W. Ervin II. In the not-so-distant future Krakista Keesay is a smart, tough security guard with a thing about a much simpler past. He finds himself accused of crimes far beyond his capabilities by a corporate menace with deep pockets. His only option: allow his brain to be hooked up to an experimental device that will prove his innocence. One problem: it will probably destroy his mind.
To Timbuktu for a Haircut: A Journey through West Africa, by Rick Antonson. A travel writer takes an extended break from travel writing by... travelling. This is a very personal, often very funny account of a man's discovery of the amazing people of West Africa.
