David Winter Mysteries – Fly Paper SoupKindle Edition
Attorney David Winter kicks back on the Florida beach soaking in the sunshine and watching the ladies stroll by. When his old Army buddy, Sean asks him to defend his aunt in a murder case, David doesn’t think twice and leaves the sun and sand for Missouri’s ice and snow to help his old pal. Seems Aunt Sharon’s past time was killing husbands and getting rich off their insurance policies. Not even Sean’s generosity—a BMW 528i with chauffeur, 100 grand plus expenses and a luxury apartment–all at David’s disposal—can save Aunt Sharon from the needle!
The more David investigates, the more accomplices keep coming out of the woodwork. When he’s shot, drugged and hit over the head, David takes it personally—but that’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg! He faces a startling truth, which nearly destroys him and his faith in all he holds dear. But lady justice isn’t blind and unforgiving of those who shake her scales. As an instrument of law, David must once again become the hardened soldier honed on the battlefields of VietNam and stand toe to toe with unscrupulous prosecutors, and a judge.
5.0 out of 5 starsA fun readWhat a fun read. A likable protagonist, witty dialogue, a twisting plot and a cast of characters that come at protagonist David Winters from all angles. The prologue alone made it worth buying!
From the bestselling Science Fiction Author, Saxon Andrew, comes the third book in the Death Prophecies Series, The Unknown Enemy Will Kill You. The Bosrean and Earth Alliance has finally gained control over the threats in the Milky Way and they are now turning their attention to the aggressive civilizations on the other side of the black hole in the center of the galaxy. Poul has warned them that the civilization that originally built the Prophet’s Eyes was under attack from an advanced aggressive species.
Earth is not going to wait to see if that species will send warships though the black hole to attack the Alliance. A pilot has been chosen and he will be the first to attempt to pass through the singularity. If he fails, then more will be selected to follow him. Fleet Leader Steve Connor expects the worst but hopes for the best. He is also frightened by the defenses the Darkness Civilization has built around the black hole in the Andromeda Galaxy. The evidence is clear that something came through their black hole and attacked the dangerous civilization that rules Andromeda. Whatever it was, it clearly frightened them to build the massive defenses around the event horizon.
The Darkness must be scouted and that task falls to the Prophet’s Eyes and his sister, Stella. What they find will turn Earth’s attention away from its black hole to the threat in Andromeda. This new enemy to mankind is beyond anything they imagined.
The Traugh are gone but a new more powerful civilization is coming and there’s not much time to stop them. Buckle in and enjoy the ride. This one will keep you turning pages well into the night.
Excerpt: The Unknown Enemy Will Kill You.
“How many ships do you wish to send through the black hole?”
“As many as you will allow. You should know that the ships we would send through would not be capable of defeating your warships. They will pose no threat to you.”
“Will you give us the technology you use to penetrate the black hole?”
“If you will give me your promise that you will accept us as an ally and not attack us in the future, I will.”
“That cannot be decided quickly. However, we can approve your proposal to scout what’s happening on the other side.”
“I have a question.”
“What is that?”
“Why have you forced all intelligent civilizations to leave this galaxy?”
There was a long pause and then the voice said, “You were right about a ship coming through the black hole long ago. We lost more than three hundred thousand warships before we defeated it and we determined that if we’re forced to use our towers to defend us against a future incursion, then no planet would be safe in the interior of this galaxy if the conflict expanded away from the black hole. Our towers would destroy many of the stars they orbit. It was in the best interests of those civilizations to move outside the galaxy and out of range of our weapons. We then made sure that none of them would violate our space.”
“I wondered why you allowed them to live in the Halo.”
“That tells me you’re not from the Halo.”
“That’s an issue that isn’t important at the moment. What lies on the other side of the black hole is what we should concern ourselves with now.”
“You are right. We will allow a thousand of your ships access to the black hole.”
“Seven days from now.”
