Reader:

"This is a great technothriller with a science fiction edge. The oceanic science in this is first rate and even though I felt like I came to the book with a better than average understanding of ocean science, Chen weaved in so much information that I felt like I was learning about the deep ocean environment even as I was swept along in a page-turning plot. Some of the science/naval aspects, combined with the Cold War setting, reminded me of the best of classic Tom Clancy, but it quickly becomes clear that is not simply a Russian submarine lurking under the water."

Excerpt from Falling Star:

Mike, more used to a limited view, was fascinated by the broad vistas available to the crew of these new Benthic Rangers. He had not been on a Benthic Ranger since the mid-seventies, the last time Mike had been on a tour of active sea duty. The seriousness of the mission did not diminish the awe Mike felt for these new machines.

"Wait a minute, did you see that?" said Mike, as he pointed out the shadowy object at the fringe of the lighted area. Graham brought the Benthic Ranger to a quick stop by reversing the rear propeller.

"Shine the light about ten degrees left," said Mike.

The tension in the Benthic Ranger was palpable; no one spoke a word as the mercury vapor floodlight was electrically swung toward the object that Mike thought he saw. As the object came into view, a collective expletive was uttered in the Benthic Ranger. The light now brilliantly illuminated the crushed shell of Benthic Ranger One, lying quietly on the bottom, as a newly slain deer might lie in the forest on soft pine needles in freshly fallen snow.

Graham started to move forward when Mike stopped him. "We should run a radiation scan first, Jeff."

"John, run a profile."

"Aye, aye, sir," responded Bell as he switched on the detection instrumentation. "Negative scan."

Graham pushed the throttle forward and the Benthic Ranger slowly moved toward the hulk of Benthic Ranger One.

"Alex, get Jason ready for deployment."

"Aye, aye, sir." Broward turned on the electric motors of Jason, ran through the operational sequences for the flood lamp, the video camera, the video recorder, and Jason's instrumentation package.

"Captain, Jason is ready for deployment." Regardless of his actual rank, Chief Warrant Officer Jeff Graham was the captain of the Benthic Ranger and was thusly referred to in communications with crew.

"Deploy."

"Jason deployed."

The small robot left its cradle on a bracket in front of the Benthic Ranger, its small propellers whirring noisily. As it left the cradle, it dragged its control cable like an umbilical cord. Mike and Mannington gathered around Broward as the seaman operated the toggle control stick like an arcade game. The black and white television monitor flickered perceptibly as the images were relayed back through the control cable.

As Jason snaked its way through the broken front window into the hulk of the disabled Benthic Ranger, the bodies of Dirks and O'Shaunnessy came into view. The results of the sudden compression were evident in the contorted features of the two deceased men. The results were not pretty. The sudden compression had crushed any structure that had contained air at atmospheric pressure, including lungs and bony structures such as nasal passages. The scavengers of the deep had already started their work. Mike often wondered how these creatures gathered so quickly.

"Okay, we've seen enough." Dr. Fleming had joined the viewers when Mike said that the crew of Benthic Ranger One was on the television screen.

Check out the new 4-star review Action/Adventure/Mystery novel The Ambivalent Corpse. Parts of a dismembered corpse are found on a rocky stretch of beach in Montevideo, Uruguay, apportioned equally between the Memorial to a German cruiser sunk in World War II and the Memorial to Jews killed in the Holocaust. Because of the murder victim's strategic location shared between two antithetical monuments, the Uruguayan press names her "The Ambivalent Corpse". Private detective Roger Bowman and his girlfriend, scientist Suzanne Foster, find themselves traveling through Uruguay, Southwest Brazil, and parts of Paraguay and Argentina to help solve the case. This fast paced mystery has plenty of action, atmosphere, and sense of place. While the novel is basically a hard-bitten mystery story, it bends the genre slightly so that it should also appeal to readers interested in travel, romance, and South American food and wine.

By the same author: After you've enjoyed this book, there's more action and adventure in South America in the first book in this series featuring Suzanne and Roger as the main characters in their debut novel, also available from Amazon as a low priced Kindle Book, The Empanada Affair.

Bonjour! New for November 2011, The Five-Day Dig is a contemporary mystery/romance that revolves around an archaeological excavation. Quick description:

A chance to translate inscriptions near Pompeii is a dream for classics prof Winnie Price, except the dig is for a cheesy TV show. The host is more sensationalist than scientist, Winnie’s boss horns his way in on the project, and her cocky teaching assistant keeps flirting with her—and getting harder to resist.

The other issue is that on her last trip to Italy, her father died there. A spiritual cynic since losing him, she resists reading into the goddess symbols that keep popping up in her life. What concerns her more are a looter’s hole at the dig site and an unexplained collapse in the ruins. Then it turns out the referral letter that got her the gig was forged, and the prime suspect is her—or her assistant.

Add to the mix a reenactment of pagan rites spiced up with a psychoactive homebrew, and Winnie has more to interpret than Latin.

Dropping in again because I was excited to see that the paperback edition of The Five-day Dig is now available on http://amazon.fr. To find it, I had to search using the ISBN number (9781466443471), but it came up. Priced at 9,99.

For those of you who are all-digital (like my husband, though not me), the good news is that the Kindle version of The Five-Day Dig is now reduced. (Showed up at 3,34 when I just searched for the link.)

Meanwhile, on my blog this week, I posted a review of the strange, sexy, ancient Roman novel, The Golden Ass. (I recommend it!) Link here: http://www.jenmalin.com/archives/742

THE SHRUNKEN HEAD MURDERS - Whoever said that sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me, was wrong. Words, when used skillfully, can kill.

The Shrunken Head Murders is a story about the murder trial of Donny Snelling. He's a former Marine Corps Lieutenant, just home from Afghanistan, and is suffering from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He went to war healthy, but he came home with wounds no one can see. Donny is defended by Amy Strong, a very successful criminal defense attorney with an Atlanta law firm.

The evidence shows that Donny committed the brutal murder of 18 year old Bridget Dooley. Criminal defense attorneys make a living with their mouths and Amy uses hers brilliantly. She combines intelligence with eloquence, and is able to convince the jury that he was temporarily insane at the time of the murder. Amy's outstanding performance results in Donny not having to pay for his crime. The fact that he was not sent to the electric chair made a lot of people very angry...one of them was angry enough to kill.

If Amy had known the consequences of winning that particular acquittal, she never would have taken the case. When the blame for the injustice of Donny's acquittal is placed on Amy, it turns out she literally talked herself to death.

Detective Tom Brikler with the Atlanta Homicide Unit is tasked with finding Amy's killer. He has to employ every ounce of his investigative skills as he hunts for the killer. Of course Brikler doesn't hunt alone; he has help from his lover Nicki Martin, who just happens to be a detective with the Dekalb County Homicide Unit. Together they make their way through the maze of twists and turns on the trail of The Shrunken Head killer.

The Shrunken Head Murders (The Detective "Brick" Brikler Series #1) is available for EUR 2,99.

DEFENDING EVIL - Have you ever wondered how a trial lawyer can sleep at night after helping a client he/she knows is guilty, beat the legal system? I have. Have you ever wondered how an attorney would feel if that same recently acquitted client kills a second time? Again, I have, and these very questions prompted me to write a dark mystery/thriller about just such an attorney...I call it DEFENDING EVIL.

Travis Knight is an extraordinary Criminal Defense Attorney winning high profile cases in Atlanta. One of his recently acquitted clients kills again, which has Travis and his wife Julie, questioning what he does for a living. Travis is shaken to his core, but being a consummate lawyer, he is able to move past his feelings of guilt; Julie isn't.

In a bizarre twist, a mysterious vigilante begins executing Travis' clients after he wins them an acquittal. This righteous vigilante decides that the clients Travis is helping to put back into society are guilty, and don't deserve to live - the vigilante delivers ultimate justice.

The police only half-heartedly search for the vigilante; off the record, they are glad someone is cleaning-up after the hot-shot attorney.

The vigilante's attention turns to the source, and sends Travis an ultimatum: stop defending guilty clients or he will be the next to be executed. Risking his life, and his marriage, Travis refuses to be intimidated, and continues to defend clients accused of murder.

This story chronicles the labyrinth of high-speed twists and turns of a deadly cat-and-mouse game...a game that can end with only one winner.

Defending Evil (The Travis Knight Series #1) is also on sale for EUR 0,83
