Cover Reveal: Fire of Heaven by Tom Wallace

Fire of Heaven Ebook

Hydra Publications is proud to announce the latest book in the Jack Danzler mystery series, from Tom Wallace, will be released in late February. Set in Lexington, Kentucky, Fire of Heaven continues the story of the Lexington Police Department’s top detective.

About the book:

Lexington Detective Jack Dantzler is asked to look into a death that has been ruled a suicide. When he learns how the person died—cyanide poisoning—he immediately suspects that the victim was murdered. Although the death occurred in another county, Dantzler agrees to look into what is a closed case. However, before he can begin his investigation, a medical clinic is bombed and a woman dies in the blast. Within days, the owner of the clinic is murdered.

As Dantzler digs deeper into these cases, he begins to suspect that the murders are somehow linked together. But how? And who is the link? Dantzler’s list of potential suspects grows, and so does the body count. Suddenly, Dantzler is scrambling to bring down the killer—or killers—before more blood is spilled. It’s a race he cannot afford to lose.

The Fire of Heaven features a cast of memorable characters, headed, of course, by Dantzler, the gifted detective critics have compared to Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch. Critic Natasha Jackson said it best: “The Fire of Heaven pulls you in right from the very first paragraph, and Tom Wallace does a great job of creating a world-class detective in Dantzler.

Price: $3.99

Where: Amazon Kindle

Who would believe the words of a bird brain, anyway?

When Camille inherits Simon, an African grey parrot from her deceased neighbor, she sees the challenge of owning such a noisy, spoiled pet. But when the music plays, and Simon starts to replay a violent scene in the voice of his former owner, Camille begins to realize that she has inherited more than she bargained for. Could a bird really recall the last moments of his owner’s life? And stranger yet, could he really be repeating a death scene that he witnessed?

Camille’s best friend, Leo, has his doubts, and after the disappearance of Camille’s sister, he wonders if her tragic past is coming back to haunt her and she is finally breaking down. But she has no one else to go to, no one besides the questionable other neighbor who might well have been involved with the murder victim.
It’s a question of a bird’s word against the truth and a race to find out what it all means.

Man of Steel releases tomorrow!

Superman-Man-of-Steel-poster-newTomorrow will see the release of the Man of Steel superman reboot. I am really anxious to see this for many reasons

1) I am a Superman fan. Always have been always will be. My first comic i ever owned was a Superman comic.

2) I love the Marvel movie line and how they all interconnect and the pure awesomeness that those movies are. I am hopeful that DC has seen the light and started to bring that to their universe. With the appeal of the Batman Trilogy i feel they have a great start to this.

3) It looks freakin’ awesome. I mean seriously have you seen the trailer?

What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
