Read the first chapter of these exciting novels:
You know those shadowy government organizations that pop up as villains in spy thrillers and suspense movies? Ever wondered what would possess someone to work for an organization whose main agenda appears to be counterproductive to the good of mankind and most of its agents meet violent ends? Meet Agent Blake. He's not the first Jasper Blake to work for Argus, or even the second... He's the twenty-third Agent Blake and he's determined to outlast his predecessors in a job where his employers are more dangerous than his enemies. He's on a mission to save the world, or end it (he's not sure which), while he simultaneously re-examines the life choices that led to his present predicament. Blake Twenty-Three is a character study masquerading as a pulp action spy novel.
Tanneheuk, Montana appears to be an idyllic small town. There's no crime, no poverty, and no racism. The town is overseen by a small group known as "the elders," a tribe of people who have watched over Tanneheuk for hundreds of years. The elders are shapeshifters — werewolves — and they protect the townspeople from the corrupting influence of outsiders. In return for their protection, they only require one thing: Every year, on the first day of Autumn, they want to hunt a human.
Enter a young minister with a checkered past. To him, the shapeshifters are nothing more than demons. He convinces the town that the hunt is a sin against God and that they should stand up to the elders. Throw in a family of con artists, a female pot-smoking deputy, an unlikely romance, too many guns…and it might be Judgment Day for Tanneheuk.
