Hell's Gate - Action
5.0 stars over 2 reviews
Price: 3.99 1.99
Description: HELL’S GATE is a historical action adventure set in British East Africa in 1898. It is inspired by the true events in the British Protectorate when the British government constructed a railway line from Mombassa on the east coast of Africa to the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda. At the same time the German government was building a line from Zanzibar to Lake Victoria. History records that the ‘race’ was conceded to the British by the governor of the German Protectorate. Into these facts, Michel Parker has woven a tale of intrigue, violence and conspiracy against a backdrop of the splendour of the Rift Valley and the volcanic landscape that threatens the very existence of the railway line itself. But it isn’t just the forces of nature that need to be fought, but the threat of 10,000 warring Masai led by the evil slave trader, Piet Snyder. Against this menace, Captain Kingsley Webb, commandant of the British East African Rifles is ordered to defend Nairobi railway camp and the two thousand souls who make up this teeming, tented city with just two hundred soldiers under his command. His love for the beautiful Hannah Bowers is also challenged by the widowed farmer, Reuben Cole who is forced to set out on a quest to find his son, David, kidnapped by Piet Snyder. The explosive mixture of love, conspiracy, treachery and political intrigue are brought together in a beautifully woven tapestry in this compelling tale.

The Second Favorite Son - Historical
4.8 stars over 9 reviews
Price: 2.99 0.00
Description: When Straughan Packard III dies suddenly, control of the family empire should have passed to his firstborn son, but since Junior’s mysterious disappearance, the job has fallen to the second son, the free-spirited and ill-prepared JD Packard.

This is a world where the South has emerged victorious in the War Between the States, where plantations have evolved into corporate empires, the men who run them hold the reins of almost unlimited power, and history and tradition rule. And as JD Packard learns, once caught in a web of hostile corporate takeovers and forbidden love, it’s not easy changing the world.
For Dexter Peebles, a private investigator and descendant of former Packard slaves, discovering the truth behind Junior’s disappearance means uncovering a past that is full of ghosts: it seems somebody is killing the Packards off, and has been for a long time.

Seeds of Plenty - Literary
5.0 stars over 7 reviews
Price: 2.99 0.00
Description: Sylvia Soong, a young Chinese woman, finds herself in a rusty-tin roof town of West Africa, where the jungle meets the savannah and spirits cavort in baobab trees. In 1972, she marries Winston Soong, an aid worker on his way to Africa.

But life in Africa is not the adventure she imagined. Instead, Sylvia spends her days in their white tiled house trapped behind compound walls. Even though she longs for companionship, it arrives in an unwelcome form. She soon discovers she is not alone: spirit children prey on her newborn's life, and when her daughter is bitten by a snake, she meets Ayo, an African-English doctor who provides a window into a world previously out of reach.

While Sylvia is increasingly drawn to Ayo, Winston travels the countryside bearing miracle seeds that promise to triple harvests. Yet as he works with village farmers, he begins to wonder if the seeds do more harm than good. When a juju witch casts a spell on Winston's life, he is caught in a trap, and the forest canopy suddenly seems claustrophobic. As the country becomes increasingly violent, dangerous forces threaten all of their lives.
