    Private detectives Matt Singer and Jamal Wade’s plan to sell real estate as a side business explodes into murder when their client is brutally slain in a house they’ve listed for sale. In their search to find the real killer, Matt and Jamal are trapped in a Chinese puzzle box of cover-ups and corruption that goes to the very top of the southern California beach town known as Paradise. Before this case comes to its shattering conclusion they will uncover a man’s crushed skull and shattered bones buried forty years ago ... the Mayor’s illegitimate son who threatens to destroy his father’s reputation ... a political assassination disguised as an accident .. and the most devastating discovery of all – that the truth is far closer to them than they’d thought possible.

    From the opening scene of Jack Polo’s intriguing mystery novel, Death in Paraíso, real estate agents and private detectives, Matt Singer and Jamal Wade are thrust into solving a dangerous mystery in a town where those in power are drenched in crime, greed, and corruption. Set in a small, quiet Southern California beach town, the novel begins with an event that rocks Paraíso del Mar. Abbey McDougal, a wealthy divorcee, is found dead in a mansion listed for sale by Matt and Jamal. As they begin solving the mystery, a second body is found. Uncovered in a construction site, this one is decades old. Despite their unfriendly relationship with the Chief of Police of the town and his minions, both detectives carefully work to uncover the mysteries. A risky and timely visit by Matt and shortly later, the death of the mayor takes the detectives closer to the truth. But solving the mystery will prove more dangerous than any of them had anticipated as they try to maneuver the town’s political class to reveal the truth. The friendship between Matt and Jamal is developed through their entertaining dialogue that is infused with humor. The detectives are likable down-to-earth characters who even though unaccustomed to high-level crime, the kind that shakes the political powers of the sleepy town, are willing to employ their ingenuity to do whatever it takes to uncover the facts of the cases, even if this means breaking a few rules. One mystery is soon followed by another which maintains the suspense of the plot. As the novel comes to a close, the mysteries intersect leading to a gripping final scene. In Death in Paraíso the mysteries are captivating, the characters are likable and authentic and the plot is amazing and appropriately paced. Death in Paraíso is a fascinating mystery novel that is both imaginative and engaging. With its well-developed characters and baffling mysteries, it is an amazing addition to Matt and Jamal’s mystery series. Death in Paraíso by Jack Polo is an exceptional work of fiction and highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Jack Polo writes from his beach hometown in Southern California. His Paraiso series combines his career as a real estate agent with his love for intrepid characters entangled in mysteries not in their choosing. Most of the books are based on a true event that happened to one or more of his clients. Jack is also an award-winning screenwriter whose fiction reads like a verbal camera – taking readers inside the minds and hearts of the people in his books. The result is a page-turner of the first order. A can’t-put-down thriller.

    In his amazing second novel, No Pit So Deep: The Cody Musket Story Book 2, author, James Nathaniel Miller, II takes a moment to reintroduce us to the Cody and Brandi Musket Story, then off we go on some harrowing adventures, not of their making. A remarkable story and read! Four years had passed since their late-night romantic wedding and now they were back in the thick-of-things. Their daughter, Knoxi, was kidnapped and her father Cody would put together the team to rescue her, hopefully with Brandi staying on the sidelines for her own safety. Well, you can guess how that worked out. Knoxi was just seven-years-old when thugs from a South American cartel kidnapped her in retaliation for the Musket’s worldwide fight against human trafficking. A secretly crafted off-the-hook shadow division of their Planned Childhood Foundation was led by Cody without Brandi’s knowledge to keep her at a safe distance. The code name was Rosa’s Cantina, its purpose was to combat child trafficking – to search, destroy, and rescue without no one expecting. They were making a difference and the leader of the cartel, Salvador Escundo, backed by powerful thugs noticed and planned to stop them. Cody hired an exceptional team of comrades in arms to snatch Knoxi from the hands of the children traffickers. Not knowing where they’d taken her brought a set of problems of its own. Cody’s only hope was Knoxi would find a way to use the code he’d given her to contact him directly. The mission to find and release Knoxi from the criminal sadists takes many harrowing twists and turns, ones you’ll want to read for yourself for firsthand knowledge of their nightmarish Amazon jungle experience with the cartel in hot pursuit. In No Pit So Deep Book 2, the skillfully developed characters come full circle, with some in the most extraordinary ways. Where we originally began the story with Cody leaving Brandi for a meeting in downtown Houston, will find its way back in the dramatic and extraordinary conclusion. Other excellent supporting characters such as Benito Santiago, played an important role and will take a leadership position in his country’s government. Miller’s outstanding fictional story based on true events brings our attention to a world-wide plague on society – human trafficking. This is an exceptionally well-written novel of hope, faith, and deliverance. Another 5 star novel written by exemplary writer and author, James Nathaniel Miller, II. No Pit So Deep: The Cody Musket Story Book 2 by James Nathaniel Miller, II is highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Unfinished Justice is a novel set in 1935 and based on the true story of Ed Bowman, a reporter for a small town newspaper in Virginia. When Ed covers the murder trial of Gunther Buford, he writes an exclusive article after overhearing a confidential conversation between Buford’s defense attorneys that virtually guarantees a guilty verdict. The man is convicted and sentenced to die in the electric chair. Buford breaks out of prison, intent on seeking revenge by killing the reporter who wrote the story. But in the ensuing violence, Ed’s wife is killed instead and Buford flees. In an ironic twist Ed is convicted of his wife’s murder and sentenced to life on a chain gang. For years Ed labors while being viciously abused. Finally, after four long years of planning his escape, Ed manages to gain his freedom. Determined to locate Gunther Buford and bring him to justice, Ed tracks Buford to the small town of Wendover, Utah where the man has a new identity and occupation, and has also changed his appearance. Ed now has to determine who Buford really is, find evidence to prove he killed his wife, then clear his own name by bringing him to justice. Unfinished Justice is a fast paced, riveting story filled with injustice, danger and even some romance. Extensive research by Janis Hutchinson went into this hard core novel that depicts life on chain gangs back in the 30’s. The descriptions are vivid and shocking to read, yet very engaging and enthralling. The characters are well developed and fleshed out. Ed evolves throughout the story and comes to realize that God was with him the whole time. He is a strong, likeable character who is relatable. The author did a great job with all the characters and descriptions, and I felt like I knew them and was there with them. Unfinished Justice is a fascinating read which features a time in the past that rarely gets portrayed in historical fiction novels. It reminds me of the fugitive, but slightly different. The harshness of chain gang life is depicted accurately and brilliantly. This is one of the best suspense, thriller and fugitive type stories I have ever read. It is a gripping page-turner. I couldn’t put it down and kept reading faster and faster to find out what was going to happen next. Janis Hutchinson is an excellent writer and has done a beautiful job with Unfinished Justice. The storyline is full and exciting. The ending is intense and satisfying. I would read this one again―it’s that good. Chick Lit Cafe highly recommends Unfinished Justice by Janis Hutchinson.

    High Flying by Kaylin McFarren is an enthralling, suspenseful thriller. Readers will be on the edge of their seat while devouring this electrifying, 5 star novel and story. Starting with a punch we open the first page and meet Skylar Haines, immediately entering into her dark world. Skylar, despite her awful upbringing, is a dynamic young woman who we can instantly root for. What caused her psychological need to hurt herself is unfolded, like layers of an onion, throughout the book. With an absorbing, fast-paced plot that keeps you turning the pages quickly, and Kaylin McFarren’s strong writing style you will find it hard to put this book down. Time travel stories can be confusing, but not so with High Flying. The story only covers three time periods, which are clearly defined and easy to follow. As with all great time travel tales we are presented with second chances and an opportunity to right a wrong. What I loved about Skylar’s adventure wasn’t so much the chance to change the past, but an opportunity to accept the present. Will understanding the past help her to embrace herself in the future? Will the pain of the past bring enough healing into the present to allow her to love in the future? Skylar is such a strong character and seems so self-reliant, and yet the need for affection and a loving touch is always just under the surface making her so endearing. There are other remarkable main characters in the book, like her father Dylan, holding the male-lead. He is a complex person, and I couldn’t make out if he was good or bad… until the end. Very clever writing! There is a good mix of supporting roles, but Skylar is the star who shines brightest. Most of the book takes place in 1997 in Chino CA and revolves around drug smuggling. Skylar finds herself in-between police and criminals and ends up in some tricky situations. All she really wants to do is save her friend but this seems impossible as she is sucked into an adrenaline packed caper with ruthless killers. This story is a gripping, page-turning, adventure thriller, holding your attention until the very last page. With outstanding well-developed characters, an exciting storyline and plot and the author’s unique expressive writing style, High Flying by Kaylin McFarren is an absolute must-read novel and highly recommended by Chick Lit Café.
