Thrillers and why we love them!

Mysteries and thrillers (for the moment, let's table the fine points of difference which are endlessly debated elsewhere) are essentially puzzles. There is a crime or crimes. Who did it or will do it? Why? Will they be caught? Will there be more crimes? Will the main character solve the case? Will they survive? Unravelling these issues is the joy for the reader. Putting together the puzzle is the fun for the author.

The target audience for this book is the readers of commercial thrillers. Cyberwar resembles a cross between Miller’s Sin City and Fleming’s James Bond novels.

The book has been finished and is now a series.

It all went to hell when the world’s greatest cyber warriors chose to wage war for themselves and not on behalf of the politicians that hired them. Hackers, they used to be called. 

To Xera, William Waltz was a broken spy and a fugitive, manipulated by the Cyber Elite that ruled from Canada to Peru. If she helped him, the Cyberwar could be avoided . . . but the assassin named “Sheetrock” tracked them to use his bio-hacked body to delete them both.

The research on cyber warfare and political protest, as well as a strong female protagonist set this riveting story apart.

A young man living in Santa Fe risks his freedom by smuggling thousands of dollars to Morocco to free a Muslim--a young college student accused of terrorism and dying in prison. The Camino Sagrado, an ancient creencia (belief) first brought to New Mexico by Conquistadores, is his motivation.Publishers Weekly says: "A thriller with puzzling twists aplenty...the manuscript creates a web in which the innocents are the accused, the accusers are the criminals and the plot doesn't stop gyrating until the very end..."**

CREED is a modern-day thriller about political ambition, sexual abuse, greed and oppression. It's also about friendship, young love, and healing across religious and cultural barriers. Set in New Mexico and Morocco, readers will agonize over systemic corruption and injustice. But, will dissect the truisms of the Camino Sagrado as they bear witness to its spiritual bearing and assess its relevance in their own lives.

**The publishers weekly review was written based on a manuscript version and not the published version.

Shah Peerally’s new book, “The Immigration Lawyer Asylum,” seems to have all the ingredients to keep the reader captivated including drama, action, suspense, and law especially how a US immigration court operates. The story revolves around an immigration lawyer, Sarah, who gave up on a lucrative career as a corporate lawyer to become an immigration lawyer.  With all good intentions, Sarah take the case of Ahmad, a potential refugee from Iraq.  Ahmad is arrested at the San Francisco airport and placed in removal proceedings (deportation). Little did Sarah know what she was expecting, from a broken immigration system, a delayed immigration court, and attacks on her person, Sarah is all that stands between Ahmad certain death of returning back to Iraq.

Threading the Needle by Gabriel Valjan

An action packed political thriller


Threading Isidore Farrugia is a cop, brought up during the Years of Lead, a horrific period in Italian history, a time of terror and killing, his childhood memories, scarred forever by the brutal death of his mother. Nevertheless, he is a good man, loyal and protective of his friends and colleagues.

This is why although off duty and out of jurisdiction, when his friend Bianca arranges a meeting with her informant, Charles Brooks, he insists on coming too. However, soon his onlooker role changes, when the young 23-year-old American, Bianca came to meet is killed, and so are his assassins.

Then another murder takes place, and the Italian police investigators find themselves unearthing a web of political intrigue.

Bianca has a secret though, she knows, she must uncover the truth behind the information she has been entrusted with, despite warnings from her mysterious online contact Loki, to stay away. Adastra, a weapons manufacturer is hiding something... But what?

I found myself hooked, right from the start of this brilliant, action packed, political crime thriller, which is set in Milan.

For those, like myself, who are interested in history, the Afterword about the Years of Lead by Claudio Ferrara was very interesting.

This is actually the third book in the ‘Roma’ series, by this talented author, and there is a tantalising glimpse at the end into his fourth book, ’Turning to Stone.’

Threading the Needle is available in Paperback from Amazon here

 The author Patrick Brigham writes good murder mystery books, many of which are set at the end of the Cold War and Communism. Featuring police detective Chief Inspector Michael Lambert, he is often faced with political intrigue, and in order to solve his cases - which partly take place in Eastern Europe and the Balkans - he needs to know how an old communist thinks, during the course of his investigations.
There are few good books on the subject of international crime, especially mystery stories which delve into the shady side of Balkan politics, neither are there many novelists who are prepared to address mystery crime fiction, like the author Patrick Brigham. As a recently seconded officer to Europol, the new EU police force, C.I. Michael Lambert brings a new slant to European crime fiction.
