Victor Espinoza, a short, youthful LAPD patrol officer, is sent undercover as a cross-dresser to catch a serial killer. His ambition to become a detective gets snarled when, ignoring his captain's orders, he goes it alone and establishes himself at the Velvet Glove, a Hollywood bar that caters to transvestites and drag queens.

The secret nature of his assignment not only strains his long-term relationship with his girlfriend, Jannine, who wants to marry and start a family, but hot on the trail of the killer, Victor gets a little too close — and now, he's targeted as the next victim.

Early one rainy morning, the head of the 8th United States Army Claims Office in Seoul, South Korea, is brutally murdered by a Korean man in a trench coat with a small iron sickle hidden in his sleeve. The attack is a complete surprise, carefully planned and clinically executed. How did this unidentified Korean civilian get onto the tightly controlled US Army base? And why attack the claims officer — is there an unsettled grudge, a claim of damages that was rejected by the US Army?

Against orders, CID agents George Sueño and Ernie Bascom start to investigate. Somehow, no one they speak to has been interviewed yet. The 8th Army isn't great at solving cases, but they aren't usually this bad, either. George and Ernie begin to suspect that someone doesn't want the case solved.

Liam McIlvanney has been named the winner of the 2014 Ngaio Marsh Award for his crime novel Where the Dead Men Go. This annual award is given to the best mystery, novel of suspense, or thriller written by a New Zealand author.

"[A] thought-provoking novel with very real characters and a fascinating, complex plot.

"Excellent writing makes it all fit together very nicely indeed."

More about this book, below …

Some stories are worth killing for …

After three years in the wilderness, hardboiled reporter Gerry Conway is back at his desk at the Glasgow Tribune. But three years is a long time on newspapers and things have changed — readers are dwindling, budgets are tightening, and the Trib's once rigorous standards are slipping. Once the paper's star reporter, Conway now plays second fiddle to his former protégé, crime reporter Martin Moir.

But when Moir goes AWOL as a big story breaks, Conway is dispatched to cover a gangland shooting. And when Moir's body turns up in a flooded quarry, Conway is drawn deeper into the city's criminal underworld as he looks for the truth about his colleague's death. Braving the hostility of gangsters, ambitious politicians and his own newspaper bosses, Conway discovers he still has what it takes to break a big story. But this is a story not everyone wants to hear as the city prepares to host the Commonwealth Games and the country gears up for a make-or-break referendum on independence.

But when Bessie is found dead in her kitchen, only Hayley suspects that Bessie's "heart attack" might actually be a candy-coated murder.

Turns out Bessie had more enemies than a boxful of chocolates, each one a suspicious flavor. It's sticky business juggling a job, two teenagers and finding a killer, but it's better than letting a killer find Hayley first …

The Long Way Home by Louise Penny

[8]: The Long Way Home
Louise Penny
— The Armand Gamache Series (10th)

Happily retired in the village of Three Pines, Armand Gamache, former Chief Inspector of Homicide with the Sûreté du Québec, has found a peace he'd only imagined possible. On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. "There is a balm in Gilead," his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, "to make the wounded whole."

While Gamache doesn't talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache's help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. "There's power enough in Heaven," he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, "to cure a sin-sick soul." And then he gets up. And joins her.

Together with his former second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir, and Myrna Landers, they journey deeper and deeper into Québec. And deeper and deeper into the soul of Peter Morrow. A man so desperate to recapture his fame as an artist, he would sell that soul. And may have. The journey takes them further and further from Three Pines, to the very mouth of the great St. Lawrence river. To an area so desolate, so damned, the first mariners called it the land God gave to Cain. And there they discover the terrible damage done by a sin-sick soul.

A Conversation with Novelist Eden Baylee

Omnimystery News: Author Interview with Eden Baylee
with Eden Baylee

We are delighted to welcome novelist Eden Baylee to Omnimystery News today.

Though a published author in several genres, Eden's first mystery thriller is Stranger at Sunset (lowercase publishing; June 2014 ebook format), a psychological suspense novel as seen through the eyes of different narrators, each with their own murky sense of justice.

We recently had the opportunity to talk with Eden about her new book.

— ♦ —

Omnimystery News: Introduce us to Stranger at Sunset and tell us a little more about its lead character.

Eden Baylee

Eden Baylee

Eden Baylee: Stranger at Sunset is the first of a trilogy, which features my protagonist, Dr. Kate Hampton. What appeals to me most about her is her sharp mind. I always write intelligent women into my fiction. In this case, Kate is also infused with an odd sense of humor and a warm, somewhat volatile personality. She is a force to be reckoned with, even though you won't necessarily know that right away.

I think both men and women will relate to her, but for different reasons.

OMN: We had a hard time pinning down a category for Stranger at Sunset. How do you categorize it?

EB: I've never been a fan of labels for anything, and that includes books. When I started writing full-time back in 2010, I wrote literary erotica. I have several books of anthologies and novellas in this vein. My latest, Stranger at Sunset is my first novel and considered a psychological mystery/thriller.

Labels give readers an idea of what to expect, and they help marketers promote books. As a writer, however, I've found labels to be restrictive, and I'm not one to be pigeonholed. Given the misunderstanding around erotica, I had to consider the most seamless way to move into a different genre without creating a whole new identity. It helped that I had written flash fiction and short stories in multiple genres previously, but I'm new to the mystery/thriller genre as a novelist.

Many books cross genres. Certainly, authors should be able to as well.

OMN: Give us a summary of the book in a tweet.

EB: I love it when readers give me headlines for my book, so here's one that combines my tagline with one from a reviewer.

Vacation can be a killer in STRANGER AT SUNSET ~ "A psychological mystery/thriller of literary quality."

OMN: How much of your own personal or professional experience have you included in the book?

EB: People I've known inspired the characters, though no character is an accurate portrayal of any one specific person. For some, I've adopted character traits of real people and enhanced them. For others, I've toned down the real-life personalities. Truth is stranger than fiction sometimes!

For example, the antagonist, Matthew Kane has traits of someone I knew well. His nemesis in the book, Adam, is modeled after someone I've observed from afar. If these two men ever had to spend a day with each other in real life, they would most certainly kill one another.

OMN: How true are you to the setting of Stranger at Sunset?

EB: The setting of my book is based at a resort in Jamaica, where I have stayed. I took minor liberties with the description, but for the most part, it is accurate.

I enjoyed highlighting different parts of the setting throughout the book — from the people, to the landscape, to the history. No one who reads the book should say "Wow, that is completely inaccurate!” because I represented the setting and history as realistically as possible. It helps that I have been there, but regardless of this fact, there is no excuse to get things wrong unless you are a sloppy researcher or you don't care. In this Internet age, we are able to obtain information to create authentic settings even if we've never visited a place.

The setting is vital for my book because the theme of water is important. Stranger at Sunset takes place in an environment that would not normally lend itself to conflict. That's part of the mystery.

OMN: If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, to research the setting for a book, where would it be?

EB: My next book will take place in Asia, probably Indonesia, Thailand, and Hong Kong. I've been to these locations before, but it's been some years, and I'm due another trip. It's always best to have the sights and sounds of a place fresh in my mind when writing about it. Being there enhances the other senses as well and makes for a more sensual experience for the reader.

OMN: What are some of your outside interests? Have any of these found their way into your books?

EB: I'm a music snob and a fan of 60s and 70s rock, blues, jazz, and I write about music regularly on my blog. There is even a soundtrack available from iTunes, which is the companion piece to Stranger at Sunset. I play harmonica and guitar and both these instruments are present in my book.

I love good conversation, which to my mind is the exchange of ideas (not gossip about people or regurgitating current events). It's the best way to spend my time getting to know someone. You will always find scenes of conversation mixed with prose in my stories.

OMN: Tell us more about the book's cover and title.

EB: I like covers that are discreet, so you will never see full faces portrayed on my books. I prefer the reader to imagine what my characters look like, and I don't provide full details about characters' appearances in my stories. Beauty or ugliness is always in the eye of the beholder.

The cover of Stranger at Sunset can be easily understood by reading the prologue, readily available via the "Look Inside" option on Amazon. I love the "noir-ish" appearance of it, and less is always more for me. My covers represent my writing — spare, but with room to discover more along the way.

Stranger at Sunset wasn't my first title. I had several others including: Strangers in Paradise, Stranger at Sundown, and so on. I settled on Stranger at Sunset because there are several meanings the title can take. "Stranger" can be both a noun and an adjective, and it alludes to how we view others as well as ourselves. "Sunset" refers to the time when a pivotal scene takes place in the book as well as the name of the resort in Jamaica where the story takes place.

OMN: Complete this sentence for us: "I am a psychological mystery/thriller writer and thus I am also ...".

EB: I am a psychological mystery/thriller writer and thus I am also ... adept at analyzing your thoughts while meticulously planning your demise.

OMN: Do you enjoy watching movies?

EB: I love mystery thrillers and gangster films, many directed by David Fincher, the Coen Brothers, Guy Ritchie, and Quentin Tarantino.

Of course, I love the classic directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Mike Leigh. In film, I tend toward off-the-wall characters and storylines that are not linear. It's not all that different from the books I like to read.

OMN: Create a Top 5 list for us on any subject.

EB: Top 5 professions I wanted to be as a child:

• Assassin
• Photojournalist
• Blues guitarist
• Escort
• Gymnast

As you can see, I was always destined to be a writer. There was no way I could do all these things except in fiction.

OMN: What's next for you?

EB: As a full-time author, it's the next book in my series with Kate Hampton, entitled A Fragile Truce. Writing will be balanced with reading, researching, and promoting of my current books. Along the way, I hope to fit in sleep, travel, and some leisure time. Maybe I'll even sneak in a game of Scrabble.

Eden Baylee left a twenty-year banking career to become a full-time writer. She incorporates many of her favorite things into her writing such as: travel; humor; music; poetry; art; and much more. Stranger at Sunset is her first mystery novel, on the heels of several books of erotic anthologies and short stories. She writes in multiple genres.

An introvert by nature and an extrovert by design, Eden is most comfortable at home with her laptop surrounded by books. She is an online Scrabble junkie and a social media enthusiast, but she really needs to get out more often!

Stranger at Sunset
Eden Baylee
A Suspense Thriller

Vacation can be a killer …

Dr. Kate Hampton, a respected psychiatrist, gathers with a group of strangers at her favorite travel spot, Sunset Villa in Jamaica. Included in the mix are friends of the owners, a businessman with dubious credentials, and a couple who won the trip from a TV game show.

It is January 2013, following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The luxury resort is struggling, not from the storm, but due to a scathing review from caustic travel writer, Matthew Kane. The owners have invited him back with hopes he will pen a more favorable review to restore their reputation.

Even though she is haunted by her own demons, Kate feels compelled to help. She sets out to discover the motivation behind Kane's vitriol. Used to getting what he wants, has the reviewer met his match in Kate? Or has she met hers?

More on today's free book, below.

This book contains the entire Jack Stone series including Northern Fire, Northern Grit, and Northern Soul.

No good deed goes unpunished for men like Jack Stone. His best friend lies bleeding slowly to death when a bad situation goes to worse. A favour's being cashed in. He can't say no. Not that he ever would. He owes Micky Brannon big time. Once upon a time they'd been the Three Musketeers, Micky, Chris Drury and Jack Stone. Then Chris had come back to Brize Norton in a box and Micky had lost his legs thanks to an IED.

Shrinks called it Survivor's Guilt, Jack called it being a mate.

Micky's baby sister, Carly, is in trouble. Jack's promised to find her and bring her home safe. She's not the innocent young kid he remembers — but then he hasn't seen her since she was six and called him Uncle Jack. His search leads Jack into a seedy underworld of sex clubs, violent crime, and desperate people. The locals call it Paradise, the girls trapped there call it Hell. Jack calls it home.

And when he thinks he's done … it's only just beginning. Because trouble has a way of finding men like Jack Stone.

This time it comes in the guise of an old school friend looking for a favour. A grand up front, no questions asked. The job sounds simple enough, an overnight drive down South, pick up some merchandise, bring it back up North. Nothing to it. But Jack doesn't do 'no questions'. When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. So Jack walks away.

For any other man that would be the end of it, but not Jack. A simple haircut turns into a front row seat for a shakedown and his innate sense of justice won't let Jack walk away this time, even if it means he's on the wrong side of the local mob. If he's going to help he's got to find an old cabaret singer from the 70s. The problem is she doesn't want to be found, and for good reason.

Jack's good at what he does though. It's only when he brings finds the girl that he realises just how badly he's screwed-up.

He's brought the devil to her door.

And now there's hell to pay.

Guarding the manicured wilds of an exclusive retirement community might seem like exile to a homicide cop. But Addie Gorsky moved to Florida to live with her ailing father, not to chase criminals. In fact, her new job as head of Mystic Cove security is a nice break from all the big-city bloodshed.

But when the community's most despised resident is found dead in his tricked-out golf cart, Addie's ready for action. The local cops focus on the obvious suspect — the unhappy wife — but Addie knows there's more to the story. When the sheriff asks for assistance, she can't resist. Only the deeper she digs, the more questions she turns up.

Surrounded by secretive, tight-lipped residents, Addie soon finds herself hip-deep in a mystery as tangled as cypress roots — and directly in the sights of a cool, clever killer who has no compunction about killing again …

Tick Tock. Sixteen-year-old Amy Cahill only has few days to live. There's a poison coursing through her, and her only chance is to collect ingredients for an antidote. Too bad the antidote ingredients are scattered around the world. And too bad that survival is by far Amy's smallest problem.

The antidote she needs is also the only thing capable of stopping a deadly enemy. J. Rutherford Pierce is on the brink of becoming the most powerful man in the world, and if he does, no one will be safe. Amy and her younger brother, Dan, will do everything it takes to bring Pierce down. Even if Amy must pay the ultimate price.
