b00k r3vi3ws Tours Presents Operation Turquoise (The Mavericks #1) by Rani Ramakrishnan

 


One is a brave soldier, the other a deadly terrorist. 

A camera will decide which man survives.




The Major is a seasoned field agent, and neutralising a target is routine for him. But everything about Operation Turquoise, from the target to the weapon, is disturbingly unconventional. Alone in a foreign country, the Major must execute each stage of his mission with utmost precision. There is no Plan B.

The Poet has a way with words—and warfare. His voice echoes in thousands of homes worldwide, yet few have ever seen him. Endowed with a sharp mind and evil intent, the Poet has orchestrated many spectacular terror attacks in Asia and Africa. His latest mission has the Indian intelligence fraternity on its toes.

Ridden with risks, Operation Turquoise will bring the two men head to head—and only one will survive.

Meet The Major from Operation Turquoise


The Major, 6.2’ lean and fit with short black hair, was like any regular Indian man unless he was on duty; then he became the job.

Along with hundreds of pumped-up youth in their late teens, he became a gentleman cadet at the National Defence Academy (NDA) just before the 80s decade ended. It was a career decision like becoming a doctor or engineer for him. But his training at the academy transformed him for life. His profession became more than a mere job to him.

Every time he donned the crisp green army uniform, his soul took on a new life. Any task assigned to him become a responsibility he had to fulfill, irrespective of the odds. 

As a young lieutenant, eager to challenge his own abilities, he volunteered to become a Special Forces Paratrooper. This required another year of intense training.

The opportunity to join the Special Group, India’s secret special force unit that took on assignments that the government could not acknowledge, came soon after. Completing the additional training and becoming a member of Col Bhatti’s team of Special Group soldiers known as the Mavericks was the single most cherished accomplishment of his life.

It was also the decision that put an almost definite expiry date on his life.

Now the tasks that he undertook were not only dangerous but also top secret. The day he failed at an operation, that day he ceased to exist. But this reality didn’t deter him or weaken his resolve because his failure also meant the success of a serious threat to India’s national security. As long as he breathed, he could not let that happen.

For Operation Turquoise, he found himself in the land of the Pharaohs disguised as a tourist but he had no time for sightseeing. He had to hunt a man who had not been sighted in years.

From his NDA days, he was known for his ability to disguise himself. On this mission, this skill was put to the ultimate test. His disguise had to work for his mission to succeed. Being a Krav Maga expert, hand-to-hand combat was another one of his strengths that came in handy when an unexpected development threatened to derail the mission. 

While among friends and colleagues, he was a regular person who cribbed about cancelled leaves and poorly planned field operations. He criticised aspects of the armed forces he found wanting and had realistic expectations about what the government of India could offer him in lieu of field support.
He was single, and had always worked in an all-male environment. Even the mention of a woman in the background made him doubt the credibility of the plan for the mission. But no matter what his misgivings, once given a responsibility he makes it his mission to complete it.

Casino Heat

Reunited Series Book 5

by Sharon C. Cooper

Genre: Romantic Suspense 

When it comes to true love, never say never…


Trust doesn’t come easy for NBA superstar Hunter Graham, especially after his fiancée married his stepbrother. Vowing to be single for the rest of his life, women and gambling have become his favorite pastimes. But when Hunter learns of his stepbrother’s death, he’s forced to deal with the woman who crushed his soul. He wants nothing to do with her, but his heart won’t cooperate.

Viviana Connelly thought being blackmailed into marriage was the worst thing she could ever experience. Wrong. Coming face-to-face with the only man she’s ever loved after betraying him is like a punishment worse than death. Hunter hates her. She might’ve made peace without him in her life, but when they are unexpectedly thrown together, their passion reignites, and the flame between them burns hotter than ever.

Hunter refuses to let vicious accusations from the media or the NBA’s claim of him having a gambling problem keep him from a second chance with the woman he loves. However, his gambling hobby might be the death of him…and Viviana, too.

Will they ever get their happy ending—or will the evil around them suffocate their love?

The Bedwetter Journal of a Budding Psychopath by Lee Allen Howard Genre: Dark Psychological Thriller, Horror

 


The Bedwetter

Journal of a Budding Psychopath

by Lee Allen Howard

Genre: Dark Psychological Thriller, Horror

Armed with electric hair trimmers and a military fighting knife, Russell accepts his dark commission.

Russell Pisarek is twenty-six years old and still wets the bed. He grew up different from other young men because his vicious mother punished him for wetting by shaving his head. When he confided this to his girlfriend Tina, she betrayed him, advertising his problem to all their high school classmates, who turned on him mercilessly. He took out his frustration by skinning neighborhood cats.

Now Russell fantasizes about finding just the right woman-so he can shave her bald. He struggles to overcome his dark tendencies, but when his sister discovers he's wetting again, she puts him in dire straits.

During this time of stress, the mythical Piss Fairy appears in his dreams, and Russell is driven to satisfy his twisted desires with an innocent coworker, who also needs a new roommate.

When Russell's plans go awry, the Piss Fairy commissions him for a much darker task that graduates him from shaving to scalping-and worse.

**Trigger Warning**

This novel depicts intense violence, hardcore horror, and disturbing psychological terror in the vein of such works as Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door, Cormac McCarthy's Child of God, Joyce Carol Oates' Zombie, J. N. Williamson's The Book of Webster's, and Jim Thompson's The Killer Inside Me.

Although The Bedwetter is a fascinating in-depth character study into the mind and actions of a misogynistic and homophobic psychopath, the story events are vicious and brutal, the language coarse, and the approach to their reporting is cold and unflinching. Some scenes depict animal cruelty, which is germane to the behavior of a developing serial killer.

This book is not for the faint of heart or those easily offended by language, sex, or violence. Read at your own risk.

Praise for The Bedwetter

"Lee Allen Howard delivers a fantastic, disturbing read, with enough dark humor to lighten the load and make the journey a wild, blood-soaked joyride." -Hamelin Bird, author of Double Vision

"Lee Allen Howard's prose crackles with an energy that is rare and refreshing in the genre. Highly recommended for fans of truly dark fiction." -BestThrillers.com

Tune In Tomorrow by Randee Dawn Genre: Comedy Fantasy Romance

   





Tune In Tomorrow

by Randee Dawn

Genre: Comedy Fantasy Romance 

REALITY TV BLENDS WITH FANTASY IN THIS NEW HILARIOUS NOVEL BY VETERAN POP CULTURE WRITER RANDEE DAWN


"I thought I’d seen everything in the galaxy of reality TV, until Randee's book!"

Andy Cohen, Host & Executive Producer, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen

and New York Times bestselling author


Starr Weatherby came to New York to become… well, a star. But after years of unsuccessful struggling, she’s offered a big role – on a show no one has ever heard of. An over 400-year-old reality TV/docusoap, Tune in Tomorrow is shot beyond the "Veil" by mythical creatures, stars humans – and "streams" out to a fanatical audience of fantastic creatures, who are positive that they are getting a peek into real human lives. And in a way, they are.

But Starr's transformation from astounded newcomer to fan favorite is hardly smooth: A desperate, devious diva wants her gone; a handsome Lothario's advances are suspect; her assistant is organizing a strike – and was her predecessor dropped into a bottomless pit? Starr vows to do whatever it takes to keep her dream job, but her struggle to save the show quickly becomes a fight… for her life.

Weaving together a unique combination of pop culture, fantasy and humor, Tune in Tomorrow takes readers on a roller coaster ride behind the scenes to see how the TV sausage gets made. But amid all the wackiness, tough questions arise: What is "reality"? And what might it mean to win a prize that makes you immortal?

Tune in Tomorrow is a book packed with some of the things that make me happiest: TV, divas behaving badly, being torn between two lovers, magical creatures and mangoes. Yes, mangoes,” Dawn says. “It’s a nutty tale of redemption and renewals, and I'm hoping everyone will tune in!”

A funny, thrilling and mysterious adventure into the alternate world of reality television, Tune in Tomorrow is perfect for fans of Jasper Fforde, Terry Pratchett, and Christopher Moore. 


ADVANCE PRAISE FOR TUNE IN TOMORROW


"Randee Dawn has single-handedly created a glittering new genre:

 the Backstage Comedy Fantasy Romance — and I want more!" 

Ellen Kushner, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Swordspoint


Dawn's Tune in Tomorrow is a ton of fun with a lot of heart, charming characters, and devilish foes. And it's funny as hell.” Zin E. Rocklyn, author of Flowers for the Sea

"Few authors can open the door to another world as easily as you might turn on the TV, but Randee Dawn has the key and the remote control firmly in her hand. Flip through the fae and the grindylows, let her be your TV guide and psychopomp. You will find yourself howling at the gate for a rerun."

 – Meg Elison, author of Number One Fan 


Amazon * B&N * IndieBound * Goodreads
