The Snakeman Of Sneyd End

by Ray Burston

The Snakeman Of Sneyd End

By the summer of 1969 the ‘Swinging Sixties’ has barely touched Sneyd End in the English Midlands.

Instead, while Neil Armstrong is walking on the Moon and The Beatles are recording ‘Abbey Road’, the good folk of this grimy, industrial town are trying to make sense of a series of unexplained disappearances amongst the pupils of the local high school.

One man declares he has the answer: Brian Danks is an eccentric zoologist who has made a name for himself on account of his dogged campaign to save the town’s railway from closure. It’s been an obsession that has won him few friends, and one or two powerful enemies.

So who will listen now when he tries to warn the people of Sneyd End about the monstrous killer in their midst?






Your Sin Will Find You Out

(The Frank Hollander Mysteries Book 1)

by Jay Tepe

Your Sin Will Find You Out

A dream-come-true turns into a nightmare…

When Frank Hollander moves his family from a small Illinois town to Milstot, a suburb of Chicago, it seems like a lifelong dream come true. They move into a beautiful old house, the boyhood home of Chicago’s most powerful business mogul – Leonard Kingsley.

While moving in Frank discovers a hidden room in the attic above the garage and in that room evidence of a terrible crime. Could it be connected to a thirty-year-old cold murder case? Frank, with the help of a local police detective and a new friend with CIA connections, starts poking around to solve the case. As the evidence piles up, could the police be closing in on the real killer? Or could there be more powerful forces at work pulling the strings?

Even when wheels turn slowly God is in control…

As Frank is trying to get his family settled into their new life, the horrible history of the house is revealed. Can God really use him to help right the wrongs done so long ago? All he can do is constantly be in prayer for the case to be solved and God’s will to be done. Things aren’t resolved as quickly or as simply as he’d like and it is in that realization that he learns that life is run on God’s timetable – not his. Frank comes to have a deeper appreciation for just how much God loves us all – even those who commit terrible crimes against others.
