Rescuing Amelia: Chronicles of the Nevada Navy by e.West Smith
Genre - Mystery & Thriller (PG)
Price - $0.99
Seventy-five years ago, Amelia Earhart, in her glittering twin-engined Electra, disappeared over the vast wave-swept Pacific. Her cryptic last radio message WE ARE THE LINE OF POSITION 157-337…RUNNING NORTH AND SOUTH on that hot tropical morning of July 2, 1937, was received by the Coast Guard cutter Itasca and anxious reporters waiting for her at Howland Island, some 150 miles to the east. That last message would spawn a massive search of 260,000 square miles of the central-southwest Pacific over two weeks involving nine ships from three countries and 66 aircraft. But to no avail, Amelia had vanished. Her disappearance sparked a cottage industry of rumors and speculation which still continues after 75 years. And why?

Because there was no one there to rescue Amelia. Or was there? Could Amelia, just as a gesture to all those Great War victims of poison gas that she cared for in Spadina Military Hospital---could she have agreed merely to pick up a spy on Nauru Island on her way to Howland---and not incidentally get a few more precious hours of fuel? A spy who had vital intelligence on the operation of a biochem warfare lab operated by the Imperial Japanese Army’s Unit 731 and one of the most infamous biochem experiment stations in history? 

Yes. And the Nevada Navy’s shark submarine Whitetip was there, embroiled in the pre-war maneuvering of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry Morgenthau, the Imperial Japanese Navy and the search for Amelia. In a world of men and machines of war, Pacifist Amelia Earhart would prove that she was made of sterner stuff than anyone could have imagined.

Shadows Before Dawn by Joseph Edward Logue
Genre - Fantasy & Magic (PG)
Price - $1.99

Within the Mines of Mithras, there dwells a doppelganger for every man, woman and child of Alexandria. These creatures are the Golems, artificial bodies which house the darkness of all men. With the wickedness of the world sealed in the darkness, Cardinal Ehrgeiz has ensured that no man may commit the sin of murder without his approval.

When cleric Lucien Goldweight returns from his travels, he is scarred by the true wickedness of the world and decides that he will not fulfil his divine sacrifice; he will not be denied heaven. Breaking his vows and visiting his Golem, the foolish man has just unleashed hell. The darkness of all now runs free, with no one to stand in the path of its destruction.

It is at this time that Telemachus Dawn, the child general of Masamune awakens. After a disastrous first battle, the teenager has found himself disfigured. Despite losing his arm and all faith in his own ability, it is he who must unravel the mystery of the mines and reclaim his stolen honour.



The Recruiter by Roger Weston
Genre - Mystery & Thriller (PG13)
Price - $0.99
Making amends for his horrible past...betrayed by his employer...torn from the woman he loves...spy recruiter Chuck Brandt is down, but not out. Now he will have to recruit the only man alive that can help him - the man he used to be. 

Nobody in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama knew who Chuck Brandt really was. All they knew was that he rented apartments to immigrants. What they didn’t know was that he was a recruiter of spies, that he was a legendary ex-assassin trying to start over and live honestly. His employer, a top secret government intelligence agency knew the truth. They should have known better than to target him. They should have left him alone.
