A small-town Irish taxi driver fights for the love of his childhood sweetheart when she gets into trouble with a band of psychopaths.
Waking up on the Mediterranean with fun-loving Shelley should have been the high point of Thomas Brody's uneventful life. Covered in bruises and struggling to shake off a concussion, he starts to put the events of the past week together.
He remembers confronting a fellow taxi-driver over the fate of a missing homeless girl, but now he must piece together how those events have escalated into a bloody vendetta with some of the most violent criminals in Perpignan.
On the upside, Shelley, who has always treated him like a doormat, seems to be taking a shine to the new Tough Guy she is nursing back to health. It seems that the further he gets away from his old life, the closer he gets to winning the reckless heart of the woman he has always loved.
As time runs out in their brief idyll he realises he's going to have to go much further if they are to make it out alive and the darker their situation becomes, the more this new world starts to make sense to him. His enemies are about to find out just how far he will go to hold onto his new life.
Tragic and funny throughout, this is a tale of love, revenge and honour told through the eyes of two very ordinary people on a roller-coaster ride of extraordinary danger and emotion. A journey that starts with a heinous crime unfolds into an obsessive love that must run its course, no matter what the consequences.

     Along the way they are joined by Edith, a thoughtful, Kind girl from Salt Lake City, and meet Jonathan, a mysterious man with a taste for good cognac and good times with Friends.
     The situation in Philadelphia, however, is not what they expect, and soon all turns to chaos, from which the friends emerge changed, each set on different ends. Andrew enlists with a man called Michael, chairman of an enigmatic organization known simply as IDSC. Thorin leaves to stay with his fiancée in Washington D.C. Edith returns to her now seemingly boring life in Salt Lake. Peter... Peter returns to San Francisco, alone and disillusioned.
     What none of them realize, what they would never suspect, is that they are already being moved by an intricate plan, a device of Fate and the vision of one who would change the nature of the U.S. and the world itself. When they are at last brought back together, the results are catastrophic, shaking their world to the core.

Locked up after an anti-government riot, his prison guard transforms before his eyes into a flesh craving zombie. Lucia: a chemist from Pittsburgh, USA, flees from a furry convention dressed as a giant squirrel, and escapes from the city in a Fed-Ex van. She's a girl who knows when to run and when to fight. Paul: thinks he can sit out the apocalypse in his apartment block in Dublin, Ireland, until the virus comes to visit, bursting his bubble and leaving him with no choice but to face reality or perish.
All four begin perilous journeys in mind and body as they face daily trials to survive: Four threads, four different parts of the world, one apocalypse!

When Marianna was spirited away by unknown raiders, everyone expected a ransom demand to soon follow. Such was the peril of everyday royal life in the chaotic times following abandonment of the misty isles of Albion by indifferent Rome. But when weeks went by without word her father, High King Mattheus, dispatched teams of trusted warriors to find her and bring her assailants to account.
Young Erik, Scion of the House of Birkenshire, was one of these. Separated from his comrades and alone in hostile territories, he plunged headlong into forgotten vales and desolate coasts in pursuit, driven onward by precious memories of stolen tender moments. Then he stood before the grim fortress – wherein he found, not the innocent damsel of his youthful desires, but a terrifying beauty borne of an ancient evil that bound his soul to an even more primal force bent on regaining its place in the halls of human exaltation.
Now caught between two worlds, he must resist the temptations of his beloved-turned-succubus while protecting his family, his people and his world from the encroaching grasp of Arawn, Lord of Annwyn, Ruler of the Dead, Elder God of the Mabinogion. In this journey to regain his soul, the knight must find a way to strike the fatal blow against a resurgent primal darkness.

When Isabella Audley returns home to Fairtown, NY from Radcliffe for the first time in three-years she learns that her family is now poor. To this contemporary woman of 1881 high-Society whose secret desires are to abolish all rules of Society that dictate how the affluent should behave, *and* marry a filthy-rich husband, she realizes to be dead would be the more desirable option.

Only Thomas, a childhood friend, whom she soon discovers has a secret of his own, has it in his power to pull them from ruin.

Gunslinger P.I. by Greg Sisco

Gungslinger P.I. by Greg Sisco - Available on Amazon

His name is Garret Gallagher, but don't call him that or he'll shoot you in a particularly uncomfortable appendage. Every thug and criminal in Scud City knows him as Gunslinger. They say he traveled through time from the Old West. They say he drives a talking car. They say for five grand he can solve any murder in forty-eight hours.
As it happens, everything they say is true.
Gunslinger, P.I. follows five days in Gunslinger's life. Hired by an allegedly Irish gangster to investigate a particularly suspicious murder, Gunslinger navigates a rocky relationship with his talking car girlfriend, lusts over a foul-mouthed femme fatale, butts heads with a twenty-first century cowboy wannabe, plays Russian Roulette with an idiot, and seeks out revenge on anyone who lies to him -- which happens to be pretty much everybody.
A darkly comic murder mystery at its heart, Gunslinger, P.I. blends Western and noir with touches of fantasy, science fiction, and romance for a one-of-a-kind, mile-a-minute ride at the hands of a crass, madman antihero with no regard for the reader's comfort level.
