PhDeath: The Puzzler Murders

PhDeath: The Puzzler Murders by James Carse

PhDeath is a fast-paced thriller set in a major university in a major city on a square. The faculty finds itself in deadly intellectual combat with the anonymous Puzzler. Along with teams of US Military Intelligence and the city’s top detective and aided by the Puzzle Master of The New York Times, their collective brains are no match for the Puzzler’s perverse talents. Carse, Emeritus Professor himself at a premier university in a major city on a square shows no mercy in his creation of the seemingly omniscient Puzzler, who through a sequence of atrocities beginning and ending with the academic year, turns up one hidden pocket of immorality after another: flawed research, unabashed venality, ideological rigidity, pornographic obsessions, undue political and corporate influence, subtle schemes of blackmail, the penetration of national and foreign intelligence agencies, brazen violation of copyrights, even the production and sale of addictive drugs.

Holy Smoke (Andi Comstock Supernatural Mystery – 1) by Ann Simas

Smoke doesn’t always mean there’s fire…

Andi Comstock loves her new job, but she can’t figure out why she is the only person in the building who smells the smoke. Not only does she smell it, but each time she does, she hears a voice in her head.

One of those voices suggests she talk to Father Riley at St. Gemma’s Church, “a man of God and a believer in the afterlife.” Stunned and hoping she hasn’t lost her mind or developed a brain tumor, Andi makes the leap back to church. Much to her surprise, she gains a cohort in her effort to track down the source of both the smoke and the voices.

Sometimes, it means murder…

Then comes a voice that belongs to someone Andi went to school with and it’s begging for help. When Andi and Father Riley discover they may have stumbled upon a murder, the priest summons homicide detective Jack Harmon for assistance.

Now if Andi can just figure out why the voice keeps telling her, “Look at my teeth.”

Author’s Bio

Ann Simas lives in Oregon, but she is a Colorado girl at heart, having grown up in the Rocky Mountains. An avid word-lover since childhood, she penned her first fiction “book” in high school. She particularly likes to write a mix of mystery-thriller-suspense with a love story and paranormal/supernatural elements.

An award-winning watercolorist and a budding photographer, Ann also enjoys needlework and gardening in her spare time. She is her family’s “genealogist” and has been blessed with the opportunity to conduct first-hand research in Italy for both her writing and her family tree. The genealogy research from century’s old documents, written in Italian, has been a supreme but gratifying and exciting challenge for her.

My Review

5 stars

Andi seems to have everything falling into place for her but when she starts smelling smoke that no one else can smell and hearing voices she has to do something before someone thinks she is crazy, including herself. ­­­­But when she recognizes once of the voices as someone she went to school with that died a couple weeks prior, Andi finds Father Riley and tells him what is happening. After a little research they learn that there is a lot more happening in their little town and Father Riley called detective Jack Harmon. Jack doesn’t believe it at first but the more they go the more trouble they find.

Andi is a great character, she is nice and I feel for her. Jack is great, the hardened detective that doesn’t believe Andi’s story. I love the banter between the two of them. There is definitely sparks there. The mystery was well put together and had me guessing until the end.

This is my first book of Ann Simas’ that I have read but it will not be the last. I cannot wait to see what happens to Andi in the next book and to explore others books of Ann’s.

I received Holy Smoke from Candid Book Reviews for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

My Review

4 stars

Alexander is a knight that feels trapped. He goes for a ride and finds Jacklyn, a vampire. He persuades her to bite him and unbeknownst to him, she creates a vampire werewolf hybrid. Although they enjoy their time together, Alex is a knight and has a duty to his king. He returns to the castle and finds that the king and the other knights have been killed.

Alex wakes and finds Jacklyn and learns he has been gone for eight years. In the meantime an evil sorcerer has taken over the land. Alex starts a quest to change everything but returns when the sorcerer attacks Jacklyn. After losing everything, Alex decides to complete his quest. But he is going to tested for something that he doesn’t feel he is fit for. It’s time to see how far Alex will go for love.

This is a fresh take on paranormal knights and quests. I liked the story and how Alex was willing to fight for those he cared for. Conner is pure evil and I enjoyed how he was not going to be easily killed. This is a really good story and one that I recommend for those that like paranormal twist on knights, kings and quests.

I received The Legend of a Fallen Kingdom from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
