Warren Ellis and Jason Masters have succeeded in creating a Bond graphic novel that has everything that makes James Bond a popular icon - the charm, the action, the humor, an attractive and compelling heroine and a villain worthy of Bond’s time. Originally, I had my doubts. It isn’t easy to pack so much in a limited number of pages. Eidolon blew me away. The graphic style is a perfect match for the cinematic action sequences and the well developed story is pure Bond. Eidolon has it all - fights, car chases, explosions and just a hint of sex.
If you like Bond, you will definitely enjoy Ellis and Masters’s graphic version of the eponymous hero and his adventures. James Bond V.2 Eidolon is best suited to teen and adult fans of the series.
I received a copy of James Bond V.2 Eidolon from th...
Like Joan Hess, Ellen Byron captures the essence of life in a rural town - its quirks, unique characters, and the impact of everyone knowing everything about your business. What I especially love about Ellen Byron is that she clearly "knows" Louisiana as only a native can. It makes her stories all the more plausible despite being off the wall.
Body on the Bayou once again places Maggie Crozat in hot water - and that is even before the body shows up. In a fit of goodwill, Maggie has taken the role of Maid of Honor for her demanding coworker Vanessa in hopes it will improve relations with the Durand family. What she didn't expect was an ever increasing deluge of requests, including the hosting of Vanessa's cousin Ginger and entourage at the Crozat Plantation B&B - for free. Vanessa's cousin has quite a reputation, so when she ends up being found dead there are plenty of...

Neurotic tech Zagarat Cole had no choice but to steal 432,985 credits from the Deus Syndicate. It was the only way to pay for his mother’s medical treatments. So, when a Deus executive called Zag into his office, he knew the jig was up. Or down. Or however it was you danced a jig. Yet to Zag’s astonishment, the executive didn’t excoriate, eviscerate, or “ate” him at all. He offered him a job.
The Deus CEO would consider it a personal favor if Zag helped privateer, ladies’ man, and all around great guy Fletcher Griffin with an easy outsource assignment. Were the fates smiling on Zag for once in his sunning life? Until then, it seemed like whoever was writing his story in the Great Cosmic Diary just plain didn’t like Zag. But here was an opportunity to curry favor from the tenth most powerful CEO in the known universe and possibly even make a...
The Body in the Landscape: A Cherry Tucker Mystery
by Larissa Reinhart
Pub Date: December 15, 2015
When Cherry Tucker’s invited to paint the “kill portrait” for the winner of Big Rack Lodge’s Hogzilla hunt, it seems like a paid vacation. Back home in Halo, a Hatfield-McCoy-style standoff builds between Luke and Cherry’s families. She’s ready for a weekend away, hobnobbing with rich and famous hunters, where she can forget her troubles and nobody knows her name.
As Georgia sunshine turns to bleak December rain, Cherry’s R&R goes MIA when she finds a body in the woods. While the police believe the local drunk took an accidental spill, Cherry has her doubts, particularly when a series of malicious pranks are targeted at the rifle toting contestants. With loyal companions at her side—sort-of-ex-husband Todd and a championship bayer named Buckshot—Cherry tracks suspects through a forest full of pitfalls and perils. And all the while, a killer’s stalking the hunt part...
