  • Episode 19 Shannon Baker

    in Books

    For the last two years Shannon Baker has lived in Tucson and is really digging the sunshine and the desert just beyond her back fence. In the ten years before settling in the land of javalinas and rattle snakes, (also unbelievable sunsets and unlimited pool time), she moved 7 times in ten years. And no, she’s not dodging creditors. It wasn’t planned; it just happened that way.
    Now she gets to spend time with her favorite person and their crazy Weimaraner, Jezebel, and write mysteries. It took her a while to get it all set up just right, but as Shannon’s late father-in-law used to say, “It’s a great life if you don’t weaken.”
    For more information, visit: shannon-baker.com, and if you go there and sign up for her newsletter, you get a free short story. Forge is offering a $0.99 digital Kate short story (if 26 pages can be called short) that bridges her books, Stripped Bare and Dark Signal. They’re calling it a gateway drug to the series...

    A meeting of criminal minds with a shared hatred of America—but can the love of God and a woman prevent Armageddon? Anastasiya Goldberg came to America to start a new life. She was a wife, a faithful church member and a target. When a 911 call reports a murder at the church, Atlanta Homicide Sergeant Malcolm Hobbs and his Detectives nicknamed, ‘The X-Men’, want to know who the shooter was, where is the witness who made the call…and just who is the victim? Then a series of grisly murders with similar M.O. blanket the city. The consensus by the Atlanta Police Department is the city has a serial killer on the loose. As the case progresses, Malcolm and The X-Men, discover a Russian link to the victims and the perpetrators. If the connection is correct, they can finally close the case. However, a key component to their investigation is missing. Hobbs and The X-Men investigate Anastasiya Goldberg’s background and discover her coming to America was crucial to a number of people in Atlanta and Russia …from her closest Russian emigrant friends to a consortium of international entrepreneurs with the mutual goal to evade detection by the Atlanta Police led by the elite X-Men Homicide Unit. But for Hobbs, a man who slowly pieces his shattered life and walk of faith in God back together again, it’s a labyrinth of danger with a countdown certain to confront him and The X-Men with the ultimate nightmare.

    in Books

    The world of the near future. Dictatorships still exist. One such place is America. The America of the past is not the America of the future. Fear and uncertainty has led to a leader for life who has taken control of everything. Every business, private organization and even religion is under his control. The common apathy has led to austerity. Control is tenuous at best, but it will be maintained, at any and all costs. Taylor Scott, scientist desires to turn his experience creating military technology into an ambitious humanitarian project that will alleviate the shortages and improve life for the citizens by creating a semi-intelligent beast of burden capable of performing agricultural tasks. Plentiful food, better quality of life for the citizens and reduced fossil fuel consumption are the benefits. However, the leader for life has another plan, a sinister purpose for the beasts. His operatives on the inside modify the experiment and steal Taylor’s intellectual property to create a beast that is battle ready and can wield the power of the leader without reservation and with no remorse. Miscalculation? No, cold calculation. Mistake? No, total domination of the populace is within grasp.Taylor continues the experiment with the help of fellow scientist, Christine Summers who shares his interests and their interest in each other grows. Unknown to them, their subject will not be the work beast they intended. No, he will be much more.The experiment is a success, and their creation is not alone.Taylor and Christine must now destroy what they have created. Pursued by their experiment and the leader, they join forces with the freedom fighters and help them win their liberty from tyranny and its unfeeling beasts of war. Playing God has its consequences.
