Armed with intelligence about an imminent and massive attack planned against the US homeland, he tells CIA he will turn himself over to the only American he has ever known who was an honorable man: his old college friend Jim Hayes.

Title: Dead Air
Author: Jon Schafer
Dead Air is not your typical zombie apocalypse novel.
While most zombie books don't explain where the dead come from, Dead Air starts out by giving a realistic explanation of how they evolved. It then follows how the highly communicable disease they carry spreads rapidly across the United States, and then the world.
It features Steve Wendell, a manager of a radio station in Clearwater, Florida, who after reading a news story of a man attacking and biting hospital staff in in little Rock, Arkansas, gets an idea for an upcoming live show on Halloween. Little does he realize that the report is only the first of what will become a flood of people being infected, dying, and rising up to attack, kill, and eat their friends, neighbors, and relatives.
Then these people get up to do the same.
Taking refuge with 8 other people in the 15 story building that houses the radio station he manages, Steve and his fellow survivors barricade themselves and continue to broadcast live as the dead surround them and search for a way in.

Title: The Body in the Bed
Author: Jerold Last
The Body in the Bed is a suspenseful whodunit mystery set in exotic Montevideo, Uruguay. Murder and espionage are seamlessly mixed with the political and cultural aspects of modern day life in Uruguay. The protagonists include Los Angeles-based private detective Roger Bowman, his wife, Biochemist Suzanne Foster, and Paraguayan policeman and international spy, Eduardo Gomez. And, of course, the body in the bed, who we meet very early in the novel. Who killed him and why?
The reader will not only enjoy a good mystery, but will smell and taste (at least virtually) the local foods and wines of Uruguay, visit the local attractions of Montevideo, and learn a little history of a small corner of South America half a world away from the United States. The plot is carefully researched and based on real events occurring in today's news.
The Body in the Bed is part of the author's South American mystery series, all e-books available on-line from Amazon's Kindle Store. Each book in the series can be read on its own, in any order. The series does feature recurring characters, so you can revisit the series to find out more about what happens to the characters, at least the ones who survive to the end of this thriller!
Title: Alva Madrugada
Author: J. P. Madeira
Quando um infeliz acidente vira a vida do avesso de André, ele resolve começar de novo como voluntário em Moçambique. Vende tudo o que possui para que o começo seja mesmo a sério, desprovido de pedaços de passado agarrados ao seu ser. Leva um objetivo como sua unica bagagem. Uma singela homenagem a que perdeu na sua vida passada. As peripécias sucedem-se a um ritmo avassalador, de quem se envolve em guerras que não têm finais certos. É raptado e conhece o inferno na terra, num mundo que é verdadeiramente estranho e bizarro. O resgate não é um resgate mas sim uma assinatura de morte para todos os que com ele sofrem o cativeiro. Escapa com vida e quando a vida parece voltar a sorrir-lhe, algo torna-a afinal em algo que não é o que parece.
Porque as Alvas Madrugadas podem acontecer em qualquer vida de um qualquer humano... em qualquer lugar.
Author: David Carl Mielke
AMERICA IS UNDER ATTACK! Over a three day period, coordinated bombings have destroyed six American iconic landmarks, killing and injuring thousands, staggering the economy and triggering riots in cities across the nation. One of the targets is the world's largest cruise ship that is destroyed by a hijacked airliner. Former FBI agent SHARON RICHARDS is on board with her husband and twin sons. Sharon's family is killed but she miraculously survives and vows to avenge their murders. Lacking adequate proof and restricted by constitutional law, the government seems helpless to prevent further bombings. In a strange quirk of fate, Sharon is recruited by the President of the United States to penetrate a suspected mosque housing a home-grown terrorist cell and gather evidence. But time is running out before the next round of devastating explosions. Sharon must act outside the law to save the country from unbridled anarchy and total economic collapse. If she fails, it could be the END OF AMERICA!
Author's Note: AMERAGEDDON is a story that could be eerily prophetic. According to a recent national poll, over 70% of Americans think that an incident like 9-11 or worse will occur within the next two years. The question is: ARE WE READY?
Title: The Matador Murders
Author: Jerold Last
The Matador Murders is set in Montevideo, Uruguay and Santiago, Chile, both cities the author has lived and worked in and knows well, where Roger and Suzanne have to solve another murder. With apologies to reality, the novel's Montevideo is much like the lawless Chicago of the prohibition years. That's part of the fun of writing fiction--an author can turn one of the most law-abiding and civilized cities in the world into the wild west of the 19th Century U.S. frontier with the stroke of a pen. Actually, it's more the click of a keyboard nowadays.
The plot of this suspenseful whodunit thriller is based very loosely on Dashiell Hammett's classic novel, The Red Harvest, the basis for the movie Last Man Standing. The book features lots of action and a suspenseful storyline. Who is the mysterious Mr. X behind all the killings?
The cover photo is of the Pocitos neighborhood of Montevideo, on the Rio de la Plata. If you use a very strong magnifying glass, you can actually see the apartment we rented while we were living there.
The novel may be downloaded FREE from Kindle Unlimited.
