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 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.

New mystery thriller DEATH IN JULY out on Kindle

Product Details

Eighty-seven year old Geoffrey Compton is found dead in his home, the result of an apparent suicide. However, his son Benjamin suspects there was more to his father's death and hires maverick ex-cop Sam Carlisle to investigate. Sam discovers a number of Geoffrey's old acquaintances have also passed away recently in suspicious circumstances, leading him to believe somebody is exacting revenge on these people, snuffing out their lives in the most calculating manner. To prevent more fatalities, Sam must trawl the past and find the cause of this twisted retribution, putting himself on collision course with the elusive figure responsible.

The follow-up to A NEW DAWN RISING sees the return of former undercover cop Sam Carlisle, free of his demons, tackling his first mystery as a private eye. As well as investigating Geoffrey Compton's death, Sam also finds himself trying to protect a friend from her vengeful ex. Sam is stretched to the limit in DEATH IN JULY, juggling two separate cases full of intrigue and danger.

I am the author of the action filled environmental/medical thriller entitled, Green Power. Since the book is about the use of bacteria for both helping mankind and causing an epidemic, my expertise in bacteriology strengthens the believability of this novel. I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology. I am licensed by the State of California as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and have been registered as a Medical Technologist with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists for over 25 years. As a medical scientist living in the Sierra foothills of California, I am concerned about our environment and alternate sources of energy. This is what inspired me to write both a medical and an environmental thriller in the thought provoking novel – “Green Power”.


After the renowned Microbiologist Dr. Ray Pendleton leads a demonstration to close down Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant, Ray is assaulted by two of Dirk Hendrickson’s fellow Delta Valley Militiamen. Ray survives the beating and is changed not only outwardly but it gives him the incentive to set up Methane Digesters as an alternative source of electrical power for Lodi dairies.

Dirk’s continued attacks on the professor and his projects results in a death threatening epidemic pointing to one of Ray’s methane lagoons as the cause. The infected patients are admitted to UC Davis Medical Center. Linda McCord, a lab tech at the hospital and former student of Dr. Pendleton, works with Ray to prove that the methane power source is not the cause of this spreading disease. Both Ray and Linda develop a romantic relationship while working together. Linda is devastated when Ray develops a serious infection from the bacterium causing the epidemic.

Maxwell Kobina Acquah - Yefulkay -

Contemporary religious scholars and historians estimate that there are approximately 38,000 denominations in the world today. Have you ever wondered if the true church still exists today? Does it really matter to which church I belong? If the true church does exist, how can I find it?
Learn about the fascinating history of the first century church of the Bible and how it still exists today! Learn about God's true church, the origins of denominationalism and God's scheme of redemption for mankind.

In this book I have explained what the Bible says about the meaning of the word CHURCH, characteristics of Christian and Non-Christian Churches, church membership, the purpose of the church, Church Governance or management and Administration, Church Conflict and resolution etc.
This book also answers critical questions such as: what does Jehovah God really think about the religious division that exists today? Does He want unity instead?

Judas Goat - The Kennet Narrow Boat Mystery


Sitting in a Lloyd Loom chair on a Narrow Boat, moored on the Kennet and Avon Canal, a dead man stares into oblivion. Who is he and what is his name? Chief Inspector Michael Lambert from Thames Valley Police Authority unravels a murder case which stretches from Reading to Bulgaria, South Africa to Belorussia, and finally Taiwan to Peru. What at first appears to be a straightforward murder is revealed to be part of an international manhunt, the result of a major arms deal which has gone horribly wrong. The story begins with the discovery of a small mobile phone on the narrow boat and ends with the murder of a Chinese shipping magnate in the streets of London. Will anyone’s life be the same again and how will our provincial policeman cope with these different layers of intrigue?

The Starlight Club III by Joe Corso

Fantastic mixture of action and politics.

The Starlight Club III

As a daughter, when your father allows you a glimpse into his past, telling stories which help you understand the man he has become it’s an honour. So, when Bobby Valentine visits his daughter Lynn she cannot resist asking for just one more tale about his life at The Starlight Club. How can a father refuse?

Set in the early sixties with John Kennedy as President and Bobby Kennedy as his Attorney General.

Getting to President is no easy thing, strings have to be pulled, deals made, the right introductions and for all this, there is a price to pay. Promises made by others are not binding, some people believe, and Bobby Kennedy calls on Agent Lonegan to recruit mercenaries who become rogue “Federal Agents.”

When the time honoured rules and promises are broken the Mafia are not happy and retaliation is the name of the game. Who did kill John Kennedy?

Along with new characters, all our favourites are still here from the rest of this brilliant series of stories, and their lives evolve in it.

With an exciting story line, which encompasses murder, mystery, boxing, politics and much more, Joe Corso has written yet another classic.

Let’s hope we see a Starlight Club IV soon.  

Available at Amazon in Paperback here

on Kindle here

and at Barnes & Noble as a Nook Book here

Christian Espionage Novel Released

The Christian espionage novel entitled Heart of Terror was just released.  One reviewer called the book "a well-written, engaging novel".  He went on to say: "The story is a low-key, solidly written account that reveals some of the inner workings of the Muslim world in Iran and Saudi Arabia...  The story is engaging and flows smoothly in a steady rhythm...  It is an entertaining and thought-provoking story."


Heart of Terror is available as an ebook as well as from the usual outlets like Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
