DEATH SPIRAL Book 2: Jai Dee, by James Boedeker

Death Spiral is quite a wild read, and now the story continues...

James Boedeker
Fiction / Men's Fiction / Paramilitary-Expatriate

Expatriate and former Marine Corps sniper Mike Towery made millions as a hired assassin. Retired from the business, he is wanted in several countries and ends up in Bangkok, Thailand, the ‘sin city’ of Asia. He now regrets killing people for profit. Some deserved to die, but others did not. To ease his guilt, he uses his considerable funds and personal skills to fight for the undisputed underdogs of Bangkok – the ‘working girls.’ He sets himself up as their self-appointed guardian angel and earns the reputation on the streets as Jai Dee – Good Heart. But deep down he knows he is really Jai Rai – Dark Heart. Still, he does what he can to reclaim his soul. When he accepts Lek, a close friend and former working girl as his soul mate, he sees a glimmer of hope for redemption.

Mike meets Eric, a fellow expatriate new to Thailand. Eric’s skills can help with Mike’s plan to get many working girls out of the ‘business’ with real jobs. When a close friend of Mike and Lek is mutilated and left to die, Mike knows a sick bastard is out there who needs to be stopped. Mike searches for fellow expatriates with skills like his to help him bring down this animal before he hurts more people. His quest leads him to ex-Navy SEAL sniper Robert O’Leary and his ex-CIA friend Bruce Broderic, but convincing them to join him is much harder than he expects. Robert knows this ‘Dark Angel’ killer and seems reluctant to tangle with him again. Robert and Bruce don’t want to spoil their tranquility by hunting for this reputed demon on a killing spree. Then the unthinkable happens, and everyone’s lives change...

COLD WAR: Murder in the Heartland, by Robert L. Tecklenburg

It's cold outside - perfect time to curl up and read Robert Tecklenburg's new murder/spy mystery set in the rural Iowa plains in the dead of winter...

COLD WAR: Murder in the Heartland
Robert L. Tecklenburg

At the height of the Cold War and the Second Red Scare, when McCarthyism and fear of nuclear holocaust is at its worst, murder draws a small Midwestern Iowa town into the craze of Soviet spy rings on US soil and government-sponsored communist witch-hunts.

In one of the coldest winters on record, Jimmy Novotny is trying to deal with his own personal demons after returning home from the Korean War to Belle Plaine, Iowa, and finds himself embroiled in the investigation of several puzzling deaths. He works to solve the mystery, not just to get at the truth, but to prove himself worthy of the task – worthy of anything after the horrors he left behind in the war.

Working with him – or perhaps against him – is the beautiful redheaded reporter from Cedar Rapids, Cecilia Brom. She carries secrets of her own. And then there are others following their own agendas, each making the investigation for the truth increasingly difficult and dangerous. The question remains, is Jimmy Novotny up to the challenge, or will the Cold War freeze him out, leaving a murderer to escape unpunished? Is there anyone he can really trust to help him get to the bottom of it before more people die?
