Since adolescence, Bravura and salt of the earth Susie have been partners in magic and best friends, as well as occasional bedmates. But when the two performers hire the mysterious and alluring Lena as a third banana to jazz up the act, Bravura falls madly in love. Lena believes in magic—and not just the rabbit-out-of-a hat kind. She encourages Bravura to believe in her own supernatural powers, and when Susie balks, conflict ensues. Things really go south during the classic “Disappearing Box” act, when Susie disappears for real. With her pal presumed dead, and Bravura the prime suspect, the magician must act quickly to find Susie—hopefully alive! To prove her innocence, Bravura must uncover the holes in her own story—even if it means incriminating herself, and her precious Lena, in the process.

"Reminds me of a young Quentin Tarantino. Pruitt is one of our best Southern fiction writers." —Bookreporter Meet Jack Jordan. He’s a smooth-talking con artist with a penchant for the fast life. He’s snuck into Lufkin, Texas, in the dead of night with little more than a beat-up Honda, a hollowed-out King James Bible full of cocaine, and enough emotional baggage to sink a steam ship. He’s charming, dedicated, and extremely paranoid. Summer Ashton, his partner-in-crime. She’s stuck by him through thick and thin, but lately her mind has begun to slip. They’ve told their fair share of lies and she’s having a devil of a time remembering what’s the truth. And recently, she’s been hearing voices. Unfortunately for both of them, she’s the brains of the operation. Furthermore, they have begun to tire of one another. For these two career grifters, the sleepy East Texas countryside is but another pit stop on their rampage across the American South. Will it be their last? In WHAT WE RECKON, Eryk Pruitt explores themes of identity, loyalty, and purpose with psycho-delic, transgressive, chicken-fried twists that read like Trainspotting cut with a couple grams of Helter Skelter.

"…Harrington's best by far, a story about the internal place where the currents of fear and desire lap against the shores of danger." —Michael Connelly, author of THE LINCOLN LAWYER A noir thriller from Kent Harrington set in Guatemala, RED JUNGLE stems from the author's intimate knowledge of the modern-day country and its legacy of 100 years of political tyranny. Russell Cruz-Price was the child of an elite family; an American father and a high-society Guatemalan mother. After his mother’s murder at an early age—supposedly at the hands of communist insurgents—cheated him out of a normal childhood, Russell has come to view the world as a hostile place. Educated at a U.S. military school and college, Russell is a financial reporter sent to Guatemala to cover a politically chaotic and increasingly dangerous economy, where prices are crashing and the policies mandated by Washington and the IMF have failed to keep the country from the brink of disaster. While on assignment, Russell befriends a young German archaeologist, Gustav Mahler, who believes that a priceless treasure from Mayan antiquity—the legendarily lost "Red Jaguar"—can be unearthed on a certain failing coffee plantation. The two men pool their resources and enter the jungle in pursuit of fame and riches. In the search for fortune, Russell will gamble all in a game where not only his future, but that of the entire country of Guatemala, is at stake.

Ian Tregillis's Something More Than Night is a Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler inspired murder mystery set in Thomas Aquinas's vision of Heaven. It's a noir detective story starring fallen angels, the heavenly choir, nightclub stigmatics, a priest with a dirty secret, a femme fatale, and the Voice of God. Somebody has murdered the angel Gabriel. Worse, the Jericho Trumpet has gone missing, putting Heaven on the brink of a truly cosmic crisis. But the twisty plot that unfolds from the murder investigation leads to something much bigger: a con job one billion years in the making. Because this is no mere murder. A small band of angels has decided to break out of heaven, but they need a human patsy to make their plan work. Much of the story is told from the point of view of Bayliss, a cynical fallen angel who has modeled himself on Philip Marlowe. The yarn he spins follows the progression of a Marlowe novel—the mysterious dame who needs his help, getting grilled by the bulls, finding a stiff, getting slipped a mickey. Angels and gunsels, dames with eyes like fire, and a grand maguffin, Something More Than Night is a murder mystery for the cosmos. A Kirkus Reviews Best Fiction Book of 2013 At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
