FREE-Mystery/Suspense in “Tin God” by Stacy Green

TinGodTin God by Stacy Green

 FREE on Kindle August 19-23, 2014

Jaymee Ballard trusted only one person in Roselea, Mississippi with the secret of her lost daughter. When that person is brutally murdered, it leaves her with heartbreak and a slew of unanswered questions. The eerie similarity to a murder of one of Jaymee’s close friends years ago causes her to realize her past has come back to haunt her and may cost her own life.

Years of deception and abuse leave Jaymee with few options and fewer allies. She turns to the widower of her friend—a man struggling with his own demons—to help her find her daughter and identify the killer before he strikes again and before all evidence, the truth—and Jaymee’s daughter—are lost.

“Tin God is a touching story laced with pain, betrayal, murder, and a whole lot of suspense-packed mystery. Once i started, I couldn’t put it down as I followed the hectic, and at times Jerry Springer-ish life of Jaymee and her equally messed-up family.
Three deaths and one major secret. Can the truth come out, will anyone believe Jaymee (essentially the town nut job) when she finally lets the secret out? Can she find the proof she needs before the killer strikes again? … Wow. Like I said, I couldn’t put this one down. I started reading it this morning and before I knew it, I was sucked in. Excellent writing and a great story… Continue reading

Inspired by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s account of a Soviet labor camp revolt in Gulag Archipelago, Volume III, the story follows political prisoners and security officials at a corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, where inmates seize control during the summer of 2024.

Kamas, Utah. 2024. In the totalitarian dystopia that America has become after the Unionist Party’s rise to power, the American West contains vast Restricted Zones dotted with ghost towns, scattered military garrisons and corrective labor camps where the regime disposes of its real and suspected enemies. Kamas is one such camp.

On a frigid March night, a former businessman from Pittsburgh, Paul Wagner, arrives at a labor camp in Utah’s Kamas Valley, a dozen miles east of the deserted resort town of Park City, which prisoners are dismantling as part of a massive recycling project.

 

When Wagner arrives, he is unaware that his eleven-year-old daughter, Claire, has set off to Utah to find him after becoming separated from her mother at the Philadelphia Airport. By an odd quirk of fate, Claire has traveled on the same train that carried her father into internal exile.

 

Only after Wagner has renounced all hope of survival, cast his lot with anti-regime hard-liners and joined them in an unprecedented and suicidal revolt does he discover that Claire has become a servant in the home of the camp’s Deputy Warden. Wagner is… Continue reading

Semifinalist in Kindle Book Review Best Indie Contest 2013 

The island of Oahu is warm breezes, skyscrapers and green mountains—but a daring young thief is out to make a statement, and Special Agent Lei Texeira’s new career is already on the line.

Lei Texeira has made a difficult transition from detective on Maui to the FBI on Oahu—and her first big case as an agent draws national media attention. With her typical jump-first, look-later style, she pursues her quarry from Oahu to the outer islands, rousing old conflicts and new heartbreak.

See what reviewers are saying:
 
” … Toby Neal brilliantly weaves words to describe the plight of the working class in Hawaii. The vast chasm between the very wealthy and very poor is central to the plot of this book, and an important, real life situation for people (especially visitors to the islands) to understand. Of course, the way she does it is much more entertaining than being lectured about it.
Along with the complex yet beautiful Hawaiian backdrop, all the elements that we’ve come to expect from this series is there: An intriguing mystery, Lei’s fiery temper and perpetual disregard for authority (this time as a new FBI agent), fast paced action, a surprising twist and the exciting continuation of Lei and Stevens’ tumultuous relationship. Interesting to note: the book is devoid of sex, but full of passion as… Continue reading

A missing husband. A plot to blow up a national treasure. Fortune telling aunts.

Mary Catherine, MC for short, didn’t move as the Queen of Boca Vista, Babbs La-Fleur, placed a pile of cash, which appeared out of a purse she knew cost more than her car, smack dab in the middle of her desk.

Word at all the cocktail parties was that MC had a skill that came in handy for an aging socialite going through a divorce. She was good at finding cash in hidden bank accounts. Cash to pay for a nip and tuck and a new identity: Cougar.

Hired that day by Queen Babbs to find her bad boy husband, Charlie, MC was back on familiar ground, tracking down bad guys through clues left in the DNA of their paper life. Asking her Aunt Sophia to read the family fortune telling cards might have helped. Instead, the paper trail Charlie left takes MC from a murder in the world of ri ch socialites to working with covert government agents deep in the world of counter terrorism.

Archeologist David Hyden is hell-bent to disprove his Biblical archeologist father’s religious theories. After his father is found dead at the center of Stonehenge with a strange glowing spiral engraved into his palm, David decides to challenge his father’s theory that Maeshowe—a passage grave ruin in Stenness, Scotland—possesses metaphysical powers.

However, the morning after his arrival in Stenness, David wakes to find everyone else in town is dead. NATO pathologist Brynne Thatcher is trained to recognize the subtle features of subsonic death, a unique forte and her only leg-up in a career dominated by men. Sound is the ideal weapon: an indiscriminate killer that leaves almost no trace upon its victims. She is testing an acoustic cannon in the grasslands a short distance from Stenness.

Thatcher is certain her weapon caused the Stenness massacre, but all bets are off when she pinpoints Maeshowe as the source of deadly noise. The ruin erupts with low-frequency sound every 77 hours. Each explosion is larger and deadlier than the last. The only clues to stopping Maeshowe are the spiral petroglyph glowing inside its central chamber and the lone survivor, David. Investigating the connection between the two glowing spiral symbols, Thatcher and David uncover Brenton’s most bizarre theory: There are four locks and four keys lost throughout antiquity. Any man who finds a matching lock and key will gain one of the powers of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse (Conqueror, War,… Continue reading
