The Maria Kannon (Military Orders) by Martin Roth

Luiz Kim, angry and unsettled since being kicked out of the Marines, decides to seek out the sister he has not seen in more than twenty-five years. 

He makes contact. But, after flying halfway around the world to Japan for an emotional reunion, he is stunned to learn that she has just been murdered in church, while at prayer.

A killer is on the loose, and it is clear that he is targeting members of the small church community. But why? 

Luiz is determined to use his military background to hunt down the killer. And quickly it becomes apparent that the key is a mysterious card left at each murder scene – a card depicting the Maria Kannon, a statue of a Buddhist deity that was once revered by persecuted Japanese Christians.

As the stakes go higher and higher in this adrenaline-fueled thriller - another in Martin Roth's acclaimed Military Orders series of international thrillers - Luiz is forced to confront his notions of what it means to be alive. And whether he is ready to die.

Bang 'em Up by Jeff Kelly
Genre - Biographies & Memoirs (PG13)
Amazon UK - 5.0 (11 reviews)

What is it like to work in a prison? The best brief description is to liken it to the cult TV series Porridge, as life inside a prison can be both amusing and very sad at times. This book is about my experiences as a prison officer. There have been many books written by prisoners about their time inside. Some are an accurate account of their experience - others are a complete fantasy. 

Bang Em Up is an accurate view of what prison is really like: how it smells, what is sounds like, the rationale behind some of the many prison rules and regimes, who ends up in prison and just what it is like inside these secret institutions where all life is played out. Bang Em Up will tell it how it really is in prison and will leave it up to the reader to decide on how futile or useful prisons are. It will make you laugh and sometimes shock you. It will give an unprecedented insight into prison life. It will pose challenging questions and reveal the moral dilemmas of the prison regime but, most of all, it will entertain, educate and amuse you.

Eye of the God by Ariel Allison
Genre - Mystery & Thriller (PG13)
4.1 (68 reviews)

eye of the god  takes the fascinating history surrounding the Hope Diamond and weaves it together with a present-day plot to steal the jewel from the Smithsonian Institute.
We follow Alex and Isaac Weld, the most lucrative jewel thieves in the world, in their quest to steal the gem, which according to legend was once the eye of a Hindu idol named Rama Sita. When it was stolen in the 17th century, it is said that the idol cursed all those who would possess it. That won’t stop the brilliant and ruthless Weld brothers.

However, they are not prepared for Dr. Abigail Mitchell, the beautiful Smithsonian Director, who has her own connection to the Hope Diamond and a deadly secret to keep. Abby committed long ago that she would not serve a god made with human hands, and the “eye of the god” is no exception. Her desire is not for wealth, but for wisdom. She seeks not power, but restoration.

When the dust settles over the last great adventure of the Hope Diamond, readers will understand the “curse” that has haunted its legacy is nothing more than the greed of evil men who bring destruction upon themselves. No god chiseled from stone can direct the fates of humankind.

What did her dying mother's last words mean? Who was the strange visitor in the night? Why do people turn white when they see her? And, why are there no records of her family?

The sleepy Cornish town of Bosdower holds the key.

Jenna and her twin sister, Gwen, have the perfect picture postcard family living in an idyllic Oxfordshire village. However, cracks start to form, causing Jenna to ask some startling questions and she sets off to Cornwall to find answers.

At first the people of Bosdower are welcoming and friendly, but Jenna slowly finds herself drawn into a web of unrequited passions, abduction and perhaps, even murder.
