FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DAN ALATORRESOME SECRETS REFUSE TO REMAIN HIDDEN
Geneticist Lanaya Kim must do what authorities haven’t—tie together the “accidental” deaths of several prominent scientists around the country to show they were actually murdered. Over the past two years, geneticists have died in what appear to be accidents, but Lanaya knows otherwise. If she tells her secrets to the authorities, she risks becoming a suspect or revealing herself to the killer and becoming an open target. Hiring private investigator Hamilton DeShear may help her expose the truth, but time is running out. The murders are happening faster, and Lanaya’s name may be next on the killer’s list. But when Lanaya and DeShear start probing, what they discover is far more horrifying than anyone could ever have imagined.

A lone trucker is ambushed, shot, and brutally stabbed. A tourist meets the same fate while out for a jog. Facing two crime scenes that could have come from a horror movie, Detectives Carly Sanderson and Sergio Martin search for a crazed serial killer. Five more attacks happen in a week, launching the entire city into a panic and causing the mayor to throw all of the city’s resources into stopping the rampage. But while the detectives work around the clock, they don’t know the killer has upped the game—by making them his next targets.

While preparing for his final round of life-saving treatments, Detective Hank DeShear agrees to work with intelligence agent Jaden Trinn and a ruthless killer known as The Greyhound to shut down the remaining legs of Angelus Genetics’ illegal, death-plagued genetic engineering program.
But the company Dr. Hauser founded plans to continue operating, buying political protection and stopping any would-be attackers in the harshest, most permanent ways possible. When the next generation of Hauser-created child prodigies learns of the founder’s true plans, a sinister reality is revealed that no one could possibly have envisioned.
As their team members are systematically hunted down and murdered, DeShear and Trinn wonder if either of them will survive long enough to finally end Hauser’s death-plagued program—or if it will end them.

FANS OF STEPHEN KING’S THE SHINING AND DIFFERENT SEASONS WILL LOVE THIS PARANORMAL MYSTERY THRILLER!
PRAISE FOR AN ANGEL ON HER SHOULDER:
A SOLID READ, COMPARABLE TO KOONTZ, BARKER, ROBERTS“Dan Alatorre is a master at setting up simple scenarios that somehow manage to go sideways and then snowball from there. Alatorre is adept at making us realize there are other less gross yet more common things that can scare us. Those who enjoy Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Nora Roberts paranormal fiction will feel right at home.” - Ginger S. Baldwin Review

CREEPY AND SATISFYING
“The style of this book reminded me a bit of Stephen King's book It where he goes back in time to the children's childhoods for pieces of the story which help to explain how the events in the book all fit together in the end. Very creepy and yet written with a sense of possibility that makes it all the more eerie, Dan Alatorre conveys his story in a way that really plays on the readers emotions and imagination. - Robbie Cheadle Reviews
FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DAN ALATORRE
(formerly released as Poggibonsi: An Italian misadventure)
“Funny, Sexy, Heartbreaking, Hilarious”
When family man Mike Torino lands an important business project in Italy, home of naked art, Valentino, and taxi-crashing yoga pants, he brings along his wife, hoping to rekindle their marriage while securing a promotion. But romance gets derailed by head colds, constant bickering, and assaults from ankle-breaking cobblestone streets. Their daughter develops a gelato addiction. Mike’s Italian partner has a coronary. And as for amore . . . Mattie tells Mike to handle things himself—and storms back to America.
Mike is trapped. Leaving Italy will blow a promotion; staying might cost him his wife and family.
While reeling from Mattie's frantic departure, a replacement liaison is assigned—a top-notch, beautiful young Italian woman who is instantly smitten with Mike and determined to reveal the passions of her homeland—whether he wants to see them or not! Normally immune, Mike is tempted—but is headstrong, voluptuous Julietta worth the risk?
“Funniest book I have ever read!”This story is all about relationships and love, all the different kinds of love, including a hilarious depiction of extra-marital sex. But Poggibonsi is a beautifully written romance too. It has the classic ‘lost everything’ scenario, but the emotions are real. The cast of characters could be people you have known for years, and I laughed a lot and cried in equal measure but cannot remember when I have enjoyed a book so much. - Anita Dawes Book Review
“I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt and my husband thought I was crying!!”- ZL, Amazon review
“Loved it!”The banter between his characters had me laughing out loud at the sheer brilliance of it at times. He writes characters that are always fun and so likable, I just want to sit down and have a cup of coffee with them… This book is chock full of humor and romance. Add in a little sex along with some tender, bittersweet moments, and a shocking twist, and you’ve got yourself a book you cannot put down until you turn the last page. – Carrie Anne, Amazon review
“A laugh out loud, sexy, humorous book with heart!”A richly woven story with humor, and hilarious sexual connotations with smoldering sex scenes done with class, but more than that! - DG Kaye Book Review
“Smart Sexy Fun”The twists and turns are not the formulaic comedy that seem to be everywhere nowadays, it's smart and hot at times. - Jess, Amazon review
“An enjoyable laugh-out-loud read from beginning to end.”- Jen, Amazon review
“A Great Read and Lots of Fun!”- Kindle Customer Amazon review
“Outrageously funny”Disarmingly charming; a laugh-out-loud, bumbling romp through lust and love in central Italy. Alatorre captures the breathtaking romance of Italy perfectly, peeling back each layer of story until all that remains is genuine, raw emotion. An outrageously funny, guilty pleasure of a read.- J. A. Allen, Old Souls

FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DAN ALATORRETHE PAST DOESN’T DIE. IT WAITS TO BE FORGOTTEN.
After completing the biggest case of his career, private detective Hank DeShear returns home to start treatment for a disabling genetic condition that could end his life, but he learns his partner on the prior case has just been murdered. Was he wrong to conclude the secretive killer known as The Greyhound had declared a truce? Or have disciples of The Greyhound surfaced to carry on with the murders?
DeShear is able to attach himself to an overseas goodwill mission headed by the U. S. Vice President, enabling him to pursue leads in foreign hospitals he thinks could be offshoots of Angelus Genetics’ illegal organ harvesting programs and human trafficking operations. Determined to pursue the truth wherever it leads, DeShear must also keep a low profile so he doesn’t become the next murder victim—but the onset of his debilitating condition may kill DeShear before the murderer gets a chance.
FANS OF ROBIN COOK, MICHAEL CRICHTON, AND AG RIDDLE WILL LOVE THE LATEST ADDITION TO THIS WELL-WRITTEN AND SUSPENSEFUL SERIES.
PRAISE FOR ROGUE ELEMENTS:
"Grabbed me right away and soon after got an actual "WOL" (WOW'D-Out-Loud)... seriously, I only stopped reading to feed the dogs and heat up a bowl of soup for myself. You've outdone yourself ."- Claire Nevins Reviews
“A MASTERFUL THRILLER”
"A riveting thriller by Dan Alatorre, the fast-paced plot is loaded with suspense, intrigue and chilling implications for the future of genetic research. I cannot wait for the next book in this spine-tingling series!" - J Barr Reviews
"Another winner! 5 stars. What a surprise ending. Didn't see that coming. Can't wait for book 3. " - Shirley Boerstler Review
FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DAN ALATORRECAN HANK DESHEAR SOLVE A KIDNAPPING CASE WHILE AVOIDING BEING FRAMED FOR THE VICTIM'S MURDER?
After destroying the last remnants of Angelus Genetics and the evil Dr. Hauser's operations, Detective Hamilton DeShear escapes with Agent Jaden Trinn and their 5-year-old ward Constantine to The Bahamas for a vacation - only to be framed for murder as Constantine is kidnapped and Trinn is nearly shot to death. Recovering in Paris, "Helena" attempts to help, but she is saddled with the hospital's frustrated Doctor of Psychology who must open up to the possibility that things with this mysterious elderly patient are not as they seem.
The Long Cutie hooks you with alternating chapters about a charmingly precocious 3 year old girl and stories of other real life people who have Long QT Syndrome, a potentially life threatening heart condition.
But this is no sob-story cry fest!
This is a life-affirming, often hilarious, occasionally thrilling, rollercoaster ride!
The Long Cutie will make you smile, nod, laugh and cry - sometimes all in the same page. Interspersed throughout the book are fascinating vignettes from a Norwegian man who tells stories about his family's tragic history of LQTS. All the stories in the book are true. Some families consider themselves “special needs.” Others don’t. Some found out that they had Long QT by passing out and wrecking their cars! Some were misdiagnosed with epilepsy for years. Some of their stories are like reading TV medical drama. Some are like reading a comedy. All of them are amazingly true and a rollercoaster of emotions to read, but you will not end up depressed or feeling bad as you read because these are some of the strongest people you will ever read about and they do not inspire and will not accept - pity.
Think of it like Pulp Fiction without all the shooting and blood. And without the gangsters. And without the cussing. And… Okay, don’t think of it like Pulp Fiction. Wait, DO think of Pulp Fiction, but only in the way the stories are separate stories that are told in pieces that may or may not overlap.
You know, you’ll just have to read it.
But I think you're really going to like it!
And I know you are going to be touched by it.
These hilarious and heartwarming stories are about the lost, magical moments of childhood, viewed through the heart of a father. You will smile, laugh, and cry - sometimes on the same page! You should buy this book for the laughter, but you will keep it for the memories - and fall in love with you own children all over again.
A loving father, Dan expresses his work in these words: "I think it would be really cool if one day I can hand my daughter a book and say, 'Here, this is all about how much fun it was to hang out with you.' ”
Dan's humor has been celebrated in his bestsellers, and his keen insights are as priceless as they are precious:
"The honesty of a 2 year old is amazing. Are they all like this? I hope so. What a shame that probably has to change.
"I’ve caught my daughter doing stuff where I would expect an older kid to lie, and she persists in telling me exactly what she did, ratting herself out completely. That just can’t keep up, can it?
"Whenever it’s just the two of us home alone and I need a shower, like after I’ve worked out but my wife isn’t home to watch our daughter, I’ll put Savvy on the bed in the master bedroom and leave the bathroom door open. That way, she can watch cartoons while sitting on the bed, and I can shower.
"With the door ajar, she can’t see me, but she can certainly come in if some crisis were to happen – like the DVR switched her cartoon off and put on the news - and I can hear her if were to cry for some reason – like when she was trying to use the headboard as a balance beam and got wedged between the mattress.
"She’s two. That stuff happens..."
You will buy this book for the comedy but you will keep it for the memories - and fall in love all over again with your own kids!
