Ian Fraser says:
The Depths of Deception has nine 5-star reviews...

There are only a few good solutions in a world gone mad.

America has disappeared some years ago. A neo-fascist Party has come to power in the UK. China is
on the rise.

A submarine hurtles through the cold dark waters of the Atlantic en route to an unknown destination. Only the ship's doctor knows its true mission, but he is not who he appears to be.

A sweeping tale moving from the violent heart of Apartheid South Africa, to the ruins of the United Kingdom, and down to the edge of the world in the frozen Antarctic landscape, The Depths of Deception is a modern homage to the works of Alastair Maclean, Hammond Innes, Neville Shute and other great adventure writers.

It is a tale of revenge, served as a shatteringly cold dish.

No Good Deed: Book One (The Mark Taylor Series) has 36 five stars, and the sequel March Into Hell: Book Two (The Mark Taylor Series) has 5 (out of 7 total reviews)

No Good Deed Received 5 stars from Red Adept.
Mark Taylor discovers first hand that no good deed goes unpunished when he finds an old camera in a Afghanistan bazaar that gives him more than great photos. It triggers dreams of future events. When one shows a devastating terrorist attack, he tries to warn of the danger, but no one listens. Instead, he's arrested as an enemy combatant.

March Into Hell: Book Two of the Mark Taylor Series
Mark's life takes a dark turn when his heroism becomes the subject of a newspaper article. The media attention and a harrowing encounter while saving a young woman, puts him in the sights of the ruthless cult leader who covets the secret to Mark's power.

Uncomfortable in the public spotlight, Mark suspects he's being tested by the force behind the camera's prophetic magic. Battling his own self-doubt, he must maintain the secret or risk certain death.

Product Description
Jane Porter's dreams of marrying Mike Farley, the handsome cowboy who lives on the neighboring ranch, are shattered when Mike suddenly marries a redheaded stranger he met at the Wild Horse Saloon in Casper, Wyoming. After Mike stomped all over Jane's heart with his cowboy boots, can Jane ever trust her heart to a man again?

Mike Farley marries beautiful Samantha Jo Smith after a whirlwind courtship with no thought to Jane Porter, his childhood sweetheart and the woman everyone in Fremont County thought he would marry one day. Mike soon learns to regret his hasty marriage to Samantha. Can Mike win back Jane's heart even though he had shattered it into a million pieces?

Longtime friends and neighbors Jim Porter and Liz Farley turn to each other for support after the unexpected death of their spouses. Will Jim and Liz's friendship turn into something deeper even though they both feel they have had, and lost, their chance at love?

Is it ever too late for love? Is it ever too late for second chances?

Set in rural Wyoming, Second Chances is a sweet contemporary western romance that will warm your heart. One reader stated, "I read it through in an evening, and felt as if I had spent that evening with 'salt of the earth' folk." Another reader said, "I loved the double, no triple, second chances. It was a very sweet ending."

THE INCONVENIENT CORPSE--Twelve 5-star reader reviews on US Amazon!

If you like Cozy mysteries, try The Inconvenient Corpse: A Grace Cassidy Mystery $2.99 on US Amazon Kindle

Opening paragraph:
"Grace Cassidy stared at the stranger's body. He was about sixty, pot-bellied, naked, and very dead. She knew he was dead because his skin was the color of concrete. Worst of all, he was lying smack dab in the middle of her bed."

The story in a nutshell:
...No credit cards, no cash, no resources, no job skills. Fleeced and abandoned by her husband, Grace Cassidy learns she is the prime suspect in a bizarre murder.

Danny Gillan says:
Hi everyone, thanks for this thread. Scratch has 9 five star reviews on and 10 on I've copied one of my favourites below:

'I've read a lot of this genre and can confidently state this one is far, far better than anything else in its field.

With Scratch, Danny Gillan achieves what David Nicholls cannot and what Tony Parsons can only dream about.
This book reminds me of Jim Keeble or John O'Farrell - but it really is much better.
Scratch is honest-funny, not synthetic-funny.

This is funny, sharply observed comedy with a wry contemporary and Glaswegian slant on age-old problems.
It appeals to men and women alike (I tested it) in its disarming tone, disguising an intelligence and philosophical angle with humour, hilarious set pieces and a refusal to fit conventional Hollywood formulae.
Gillan's crucial advantage is that he writes likeable key characters; people we understand, recognise and could be persuaded to join for a pint. Which is handy, as much of the action is set in the pub.

But it's more than one man's painful journey through lager to maturity; it examines how people choose to live their lives, how external facades hide rifts, patterns of behaviour and deeply held assumptions.
His cast of characters; Terry the Not-In-The Closet mate, Kate the Beautiful-But-Crap co-worker, Joe/Simon the astute psychologist with a Bruce Lee obsession, Sammy the Out-of-the-Closet boss, all weave a wonderfully rich background against which our Jim fights his battles.
There's a love story at the heart of this, but it isn't the one you think.
The bits that made me cry and nod came from the most unexpected quarter, and meant all the more for it. Near the end, Jim and Martin's conversation, so perfectly pitched, lifted this book to another level. Gillan's writing - quite literally - makes us grow up.

Scratch avoids cliche, skips cheap solutions and provides a thoroughly satisfying, if bittersweet end to Jim Cooper's journey.
Why this isn't kicking One Day etc out of the water, I don't know - it has warmth, humour and honesty, loveable individuals and a genuine attempt to answer the essential question - how should you live your life?

This writer is going to be massive - because he's better than the rest.
Read him now so you can tell them all "I told you so".' - review by Leekmuncher

Eleven five star reviews and one four star. I love reviews from readers I don't know and most of these are from perfect strangers. That makes this writer feel absolutely renewed. My third novel is through content editing and ready to go out for copy-editing. Today I'm presenting my first:

Whispers from the Ashes

You can sample it, peek inside quickly, or read the reviews. It is also available on Kindle at the great price of $2.99.

I'll have a website up soon and will post it on my Author's Page at Amazon when it is complete. I'd love to hear from you.


Thanks, Amazon, for this forum.

Both my books have more than five 5* reviews - and they are both currently in the UK Kindle top 100.

Remix tells what happens when a young woman goes on to her roof terrace and finds a man sleeping there - rather an attractive man, with his scruffy dog...

Replica is the story of Beth, accidentally replicated in a flawed experiment. Beth One thinks Nick Cavanagh is there to protect her; in fact, he's hunting her double.

Each book is $0.99.

I've only had two reviews posted so far, but so far the feedback's been great, both 5-star reviews.

Formula Rx:17

Geric is lured by Dalis to a remote island to practice medicine until his license is reinstated. Upon arrival, Dalis reveals that Geric must erase memories and personal identities from abducted women or face his own demise. While Geric bides his time until an opportunity arises to escape, he is presented with a patient that is resistant to treatment but manages to catch Dalis' eye.
Livia's life is spared with the mindset that her immunity is the key to developing an alternate therapy for other resistant women. She serves as Geric's medical assistant while enduring the aggressive advances of Dalis. The stress of their living conditions proves to be too difficult when the consequence of their reckless behavior triggers a deadline to escape. A deadline that will expose their transgressions...and cost them their lives.

SAT & BAF! Memories of a Tower Rat has nine, five-star reviews!

"SAT & BAF!" has just been reduced to $2.99 on Kindle! It is a memoir of my two years as security for Pershing II nuclear missiles in cold war Heilbronn, West Germany. It inlcudes adventure, travel, romance, history, and a lot of humor. This is a light read that is very enlightening and entertaining. It's a coming of age story that millions of us lived. In this memoir, you can share it. It will grab you and keep you entertained from beginning to end. Millions of Americans served overseas during the Cold War. Until now, almost none of our stories have been told. I decided to tell my story for all of us.

"SAT & BAF!" has been extremely popular with people who served in Germany during the Cold War. I've had many contact me to thank me for putting down what it was like and bringing back so many memories. This is the twentieth anniversary of the end of the Cold War. I hope you will take this opportunity to learn what it was like to serve in it or reminisce if you were one. The book is available in paperback and on Kindle.

Likened to The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and Second Glance by Jodi Picoult

Do you believe you've lived before? Julia does. Since she was a child she's had dreams, memories and visions of what she believes are previous lives.

She doesn't pay much attention to these flashbacks until her grown-up son dies and, at the same time, she's suspended from her job as a doctor. With her present day life - including her marriage - falling apart around her, Julia turns to her past lives as an escape.

For the first time, she meets someone whom she recognises from a previous existence. She is drawn to get to know him. But while, in the past, he was her teenage sweetheart, in this life he's a murderer. Present and past entwine, culminating in a dramatic conclusion.

Set in Nottingham and Lyme Regis.

The Girl on the Swing

Also by this author, a tale of relationships and caves

Thank you for the thread, Patience!

Take the Monkeys and Run (A Barbara Marr Murder Mystery) is a humorous mystery with 92 reviews - 45 of them 5-star and 31 4-star. It's a laugh-out-loud fun kind of book with Janet Evanovich-like humor. Publishers Weekly said it is, "an outright treat: diverting, funny, and fast-moving." Just .99 cents!

A Single Deadly Truth (A Steve Decatur Mystery)

Here's what author Frank Cook - who appears in Nelson DeMille's new mystery anthology - has to say:

"Single Deadly" is a fast read that blends sunken treasure, deep-sea diving, fast boats and a cast of characters that run from bad guys to real bad guys to really really bad guys. (And that doesn't even count the shark.)
