The Signature of a Voice is a cat-and-mouse game between a violent trio, led by a psychopathic killer, and a police officer on suspension. Move and countermove in this chess game is planned and enacted. The reader, in the position of god, knows who is guilty and who plans what, but just as in chess, the opponents' plans thwart one another. The outcomes twist and turn to the final curtain fall.
There is a sense of suspense but also of anger as the system seems to be working against those who are fighting on the side of right, while the perpetrators of vicious crimes seem able to operate freely and choose to do what they wish. They choose the route of ultra-violence to stay ahead of the law in an otherwise tranquil community: they plan and execute, in all senses of the word. Is it possible to triumph against this ruthlessness? An intriguing crime story by Johnny John Heinz.
FACE BLIND (Click on the title above to go to the novel).
From the pen of Raymond Benson, author of the acclaimed original James Bond continuation novels (Zero Minus Ten, The Facts of Death, High Time to Kill, DoubleShot, Never Dream of Dying, and The Man With the Red Tattoo) and the novel Evil Hours, comes a new and edgy noir thriller.
Imagine a world where you don’t recognize the human face.
That’s Hannah’s condition - prosopagnosia, or “face blindness” - when the brain center that recognizes faces is inoperable.
The onset of the condition occurred when she was attacked and nearly raped by an unknown assailant in the inner lobby of her New York City apartment building. And now she thinks he’s back, and not just in her dreams.
When she also attracts the attention of a psychopathic predator and becomes the unwitting target of a Mafia drug ring, the scene is set for a thrill ride of mistaken identity, cat-and-mouse pursuit, and murder.
Face Blind is a twisting, turning tale of suspense in which every character has a dark side. The novel will keep the reader surprised and intrigued until the final violent catharsis.
EVIL HOURS (Click on the title above to go to the novel)
"My mother was murdered when I was six years old." Shannon has become used to giving this explanation when getting to know new arrivals in the small West Texas town of Limite. She has never hidden the truth about her mother, but she is haunted by the unresolved circumstances surrounding her mother’s murder and the deaths of a series of other women around the same time.
It is when she sets about uncovering the truth, with the help of an investigator, that the true depravity of Limite’s underbelly begins to emerge.
The very ordinariness of the small town lends a chill to Evil Hours, as revelations from a murky past begin to form a pattern; but much worse they begin to cast their shadow over the present.
