The Lion's Mouth:
The Nick Lawrence Series, Book 2

Host Gwyn Olson interviews Brian Christopher Shea,
the author of "The Nick Lawrence Series"
 

About the book: Big things come in small packages.

Nick Lawrence returned to Austin, Texas, and rejoined his old unit, the FBI's Violent Crimes against Children Task Force. It's not long before he finds himself in the middle of a well-organized human trafficking ring. Teaming with local law enforcement, he sets out to dismantle the group. Nick soon realizes that he's in over his head and, if he's not careful, he might lose his.

A girl, alone and on the run, hunted by a relentless adversary tasked with bringing her back. Thrust into a country that she doesn't know and armed only with a set of skills bestowed by her father, she embarks on a perilous journey to keep a promise.

With his second installment in the Nick Lawrence Series, Shea delivers a fast-paced, thrill-filled sequel to its well-received predecessor, The Camel's Back.

The HUUT

Host Gwyn Olson interviews 
Mike Kennedy, Author of The Huut
and narrator Conner Goff

 

About the book: A clue and a fatal accident sends Mark Springfield across the country to the Golden State. With him is an encrypted device able to communicate with The HUUT, the only satellite able to image below the earth's surface. If his sister is still alive, he'll use it as bait to get her back.

"Richard Salvatore, Mark Springfield, or whatever his name is, sat right in front of me! I would've had him killed then if I had known! Ken, how did this get past us?" It was a rhetorical question. Steve Chang was furious and could hardly control himself as he sat in the small room at the JPL. Ken Benner sat patiently across from him with his elbows on the table, watching. He knew what was really driving this rant. Martin Powell, Chang's number-one man, had brought the woman back, the sister of a CIA operative. Ken shook his head. He had never liked Powell, thought him impulsive. He had screwed up, and now they had to clean up his mess. "I worked for years getting information on the Huntsville unit", Chang blurted. Unbeknownst to Chang, the Chinese government was taunting the US. It was a ploy to get them to show their hand. Instead, they had planted their own spy."

Murder In Shadow

An Acton & Dolye Mystery, #6

Host Marnye Young (narrator) shares questions with the author of the book, Anne Cleeland.

The Story: It seemed a little strange, that Detective Sergeant Kathleen Doyle wound up being the ranking officer on this particular homicide scene. It was true that DCI Acton was off somewhere, testifying, and DI Williams was chasing down witnesses on the latest Santeria murder, but Doyle couldn’t shake the feeling that she was being manipulated, by one or both of them. But to what end? The unidentified victim was a wealthy man, who shouldn’t have been mucking about in a Lambeth alley, in the first place. Who was he? And why were Acton and Williams staying well-away, with only Doyle left to sort it out? It was almost as though they didn’t want the case to be resolved too quickly. . .

About the Author:  Anne Cleeland holds a degree in English from UCLA as well as a law degree from Pepperdine University. She worked as a research attorney for federal and state court judges, a legal writer in private practice, and a guest lecturer at several universities. She is currently at work on her next Scotland Yard mystery featuring Acton and Doyle. She lives in California and has four children.

About the Narrator: Marnye Young is an award winning narrator for NY Times and USA Today bestselling authors. She is a Yale MFA grad SAG-AFTRA voice stage and screen actor who has spent her life in the South, Midwest and North. Having performed in Romania, Sweden, Scotland, NYC and more she has been reviewed for her impeccable comic timing as well as her ability to make you cry and has been called an accent guru. When she isn’t narrating she's podcasting, writing a self-deprecating comical blog about her identical twins, fishing, following NASCAR, volunteering (CRIS radio, TIC and Learning Ally), running a small playreading group in NYC, raising chickens and of course “mom”ing. Her favorite literary character is Sherlock Holmes.

Camel’s Back - Author and Narrator discuss the book

Silverton Audio's host Marnye Young interviews the author and narrator of The Camel's Back, discussing their impressions and thoughts they had while writing and narrating the book.

Book Summary

Three people, each at their own breaking point, collide. The resulting impact will forever change their lives … if they can manage to survive it.

Declan Enright, a former police officer recently fired over a controversial shooting, has reached a breaking point in his life. Confronted with insurmountable financial burdens in the wake of his termination, Declan makes a desperate move to stabilize his situation for the benefit of his wife and three young daughters. Tapping into his ingrained skill set, forged during his time as an operator in the Navy’s most elite special operations unit, Declan crosses over the line of right and wrong, discovering that nothing is black and white. All while maintaining the balance of family and the needs of his non-communicative, three-year old autistic daughter, Laney.

Nicholas Lawrence, an accomplished investigator with the FBI, voluntarily takes a reassignment from his human trafficking unit in Austin, Texas. His transfer brings him to the bank robbery unit based out of Connecticut’s New Haven field office. Nick’s decision to relocate, stemming from the recent death of his father, is done in effort to care for his aging mother suffering from the onset of dementia. The burden of this decision is only slightly alleviated by the support of his partner, Isabella Martinez.

Khaled, a man who suffered an unimaginable loss several years back, makes the decision to leave his small village set in the foothills of Iraq’s Cheekha Dar Mountain. He has traveled to the United States in the hope of seeking closure to the event that haunts his daily existence. Khaled’s concept of closure is wrought with devastating consequences, plunging the country into a state of fear. The best chance at thwarting this threat rests in the unlikely alliance formed between Declan, Nick, and Isabella.

Editorial Reviews

“A powerful and gripping novel. The character of Declan Enright is every bit as complex as the times we live in. Written from firsthand experience, Brian Christopher Shea gives us all the rare opportunity to see the internal and external struggles of those individuals who serve in the military and as first responders.” Kevin Cahill, Lt. Col. US Army Intelligence
 
“Shea gives you a front row seat to the raw emotion of those on the front line. His characters are genuine and are faced with real-world challenges set against a backdrop of a fast-paced thrill ride. His descriptive prose breaks down the technical aspect of the military and police lingo, putting it into plain language for all readers. Shea’s original character, Declan Enright, is as relentless as the author who created him. A must read!” Lt. Kevin Dillon (Ret.), Founder of LOCKUP Police Combat Systems
