Black Oil, Red Blood by Diane Castle
The thing about cancer is it’s hard to prove somebody gave it to you on purpose—but Chloe Taylor can prove it. In fact, she proves it for a living. She sues oil refineries that would rather save a buck than comply with safety regulations designed to do important things like, you know, keep people alive.Chloe had a successful career until circumstances forced her to move to the bass-ackwards town of Kettle, Texas (human population: 4,000; gun population: 34,356). 

Big Oil industry giant PetroPlex employs half of Kettle’s population, and there’s no question the judge in the town’s got oil stains on his hands. It’s no wonder she’s been on a losing streak lately. She suspects she’s been litigating on an uneven playing field, but when her star expert witness turns up dead less than 48 hours before a make-or break hearing, she knows.What she doesn’t know is the key piece of information that got her expert killed. It turns out PetroPlex is harboring a shocking secret—one that has the potential to skyrocket gasoline prices, spark an energy market meltdown, and trigger riots, chaos, death, and destruction on a global scale. Chloe must discover the secret and expose the villains before she is permanently silenced, all while juggling a troublesome ex-fiancé and a tantalizing new flame along the way.

Malevolent by Ian Dawn

When parents tell children about monsters they forget about the dark forces that are constantly trying to find a way inside depraved minds, or are we the monsters allowing the darkness in to use as a scapegoat. As human beings are we that delusional to think we can't take responsibility for the acts we commit, is this the way our minds deal with the heinous and depraved acts some perpertrate on others? The “Family” have been formed by one such malevolent force of humanity! Detective Steve Jackson and his new partner Leon Sparks are the hunter and the hunted in this horror tale based on actual serial murders in Adelaide in the 1970's and 80's. They are brought together under strange curcumstances with the knowledge that they need to stop an evil so depraved, both within their own mortal souls and againt the madness of inhuman thoughts. 

Adieu by Michael Gilbert

“It began as a struggle. All great love affairs do.” So begins James London’s retelling of the romance that cost him his sanity. James’s narrative starts when he spies Joey Silverton in a dingy campus bar. The attraction is immediate. James is a literature teacher who desires to be an artist while Joey is an art major who desires some stability in her otherwise spontaneous approach to life. What starts as a beautiful romance turns into an obsessive tragedy filled with despair, infidelity, suicidal ideations, a possible pregnancy and one question; can their love endure? 

Adieu: The Eternal Verity is a novel that strips away conventional beliefs about romantic relationships, leaving only the core elements of human fears, insecurities and generalized neuroses exposed. Love encompasses the best and the worst elements of human nature. Both extremes are present in Adieu. Nobody is happy all the time, but can these characters derive enough happiness to keep their love alive? This novel will require readers to redefine the very notion of love and hopefully cherish the experience rather than let the experience destroy them.
