Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you an extract from MICHELE I KHOURY’s novel BUSTED. Hope you all will enjoy it as much as i did.

Chapter 2 Miguel-Fuckin’ Leo                                                       September 2018

 

 At the Costa Mesa Fitness Center, Miguel Lopez picked up a fifty-pound weight for a set of one-armed curls and planned his next cocaine shipment. He’d bring in eight hundred keys, or a little over seventeen hundred pounds, his largest yet.

Switching arms, he continued curling and scanned the gym—a converted hangar that reeked of sweat and mildew. The noisy air conditioner made conversation difficult, so chicks stayed away, and the bikers and bouncers kept to themselves–which was fine with him. Working out was his private time, and he savored the solitude.

As he admired his abs in the mirror, he prided himself on not using steroids or drugs of any kind. Those were for wimps. He sniggered. Yeah, wimps who’d pay a thousand to two thousand dollars per ounce for blow.

Coke was a lot more lucrative than his container business, and keeping the supply channel open with the Sinaloa Cartel was crucial. He made a mental note to pay the two million dollars next week. Yup, life was good.

The gym doors banged open, drawing his attention. Leo ambled in, followed by some dude.

Jesus Fucking Christ. No matter how many times Miguel had told Leo to come alone, the dumbass didn’t get it. Seeing him in the same V-necked orange shirt tucked into his skinny jeans, made Miguel want to strangle the dipshit using his greasy ponytail.

Leo gestured for his companion to stay back and sauntered over.

Who was he trying to impress? Last week, he’d brought a butt-ugly chick, and today it was a guy with tat-covered guns peeking out of an army-green tee.

“Hey, man.” Leo raised his fist for a knuckle bump.

Miguel put down the weight so he wouldn’t clobber the son-of-a-bitch. He nodded toward the man with curly brown hair and beard. “Got your own muscle now?”

Leo pointed. “That’s Garcia, my customer. He’s cool.”

Un-fucking-believable. “You brought him here?” Miguel’s temper soared. “¡Pinche puto pendejo!” Without warning, he punched Leo’s scrawny stomach, causing him to double over. Miguel held down the dealer’s bony back, preventing him from standing.

Leo struggled.

Miguel scanned the room, challenging anyone to interfere. No one did. He checked out Garcia, who sat with his back against the wall. His eyes flashed from Miguel to Leo, but he made no move to approach.

Satisfied, Miguel released the prick.

Leo stood, gasping for air. “Didn’t tell him your name.”

“What part of ‘it’s not safe for you or me’ don’t you understand?” Miguel asked through clenched teeth.

The idiot winced. “I thought you’d, ah, like to meet him.”

Most dealers would kill to keep their customers a secret. Miguel stepped within two inches of Leo’s nose. “Why would I want to meet your fuckin’ customer?”

Leo jumped back a couple feet. “He buys a lot.”

Miguel checked out Garcia, who opened a pocketknife and cleaned his nails. While giving the appearance of being laid back, he was watching every move. Shrewd.

Chills crawled down Miguel’s spine. Shrewd wasn’t good. If the dude ever ID’d Miguel, he’d get it right. How could Leo be that stupid, bringing in a stranger?

Leo’s eyes darted. He seemed more agitated than usual.

Was he using blow? Miguel checked Leo’s nose for redness or powder remnants. No. The cocksucker was naturally edgy.

“I was wonderin’ when I could get more shit, ya know? I’m gettin’ low.”

“Soon.” Miguel shoved Leo’s chest. “Now get the hell out.”

He stumbled away.

To help relieve his irritation, Miguel put two hundred pounds on the rack and did fifteen military presses. His other dealers understood their supply depended on protecting Miguel’s identity—but not fuckin’ Leo!

Miguel watched the asshole swagger out, followed by Garcia.

Leo’s customer was street smart; Miguel would give him that. Still, he hated being exposed. If Leo did stupid shit like this, what else was he doing?

Miguel felt as if a ten-pound weight had lodged in his gut.

AUTHOR: Anne Coates

GENRE: Thriller

CLICK ON THE LINK TO PURCHASE THE BOOK (amazon)

SONGS OF INNOCENCE by ANNE COATES is an intense, suspenseful and intriguing novel that is the third book in Hannah Weybridge series.

A crime investigative reporter in a prestigious newspaper has survived a major, deadly plot in the previous book. She is now trying to move on with her daughter and hopefully a trusting man. However, moving on is easier said than done. She is still suffering from the aftermath of what happened, trying to come out of it unscathed. Furthermore, there seems to be a new danger looming over her, and her acquaintances when the body of a teenage Asian girl turns up. Another case to solve, SONGS OF INNOCENCE is the story of a woman’s courage, trust and bravery.

songs of innocence

The book does justice to all the characters in it. The book is written in such a way that you get an idea of what is happening and what has happened in the previous one fairly early. It’s a book with complex emotions, risk taking factors; and a woman’s courage and her dealing with aftermath of a difficult situation.

The author, ANNE COATES, has done a tremendous job on the book. She has created a character who is brave, yet vulnerable. She is the most relatable character in the book. She defies all the conventional notions of a typical woman, and yet attains everything that she strives for.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Anne Coates Author Image

Reading and writing has been Anne Coates’ passion for as long as she can remember. Instilled and inspired by her mother and by the Deputy Head at her secondary school who encouraged her hunger for reading by granting her free access to the books not yet in the school library, and she feels still grateful for this, in her eyes, amazing privilege.

After her degree in English and French, Anne moved to London to stay. During her career she worked for publishers, as a journalist, writer, editor, and translator. The birth of her daughter, Olivia inspired her to write non-fiction books, such as ‘Your Only Child’ (Bloomsbury, 1996), books about applying to and surviving university (NeedtoKnow, 2013), but also short stories, tales with a twist, and stories exploring relationships, published in two collections by Endeavour Press (2015).

The sometimes strange places Anne visited as a journalist often made her think “What if…” And so, investigative journalist Hannah Weybridge was born… The Hannah Weybridge series currently consists of three books, all published by Urbane Publications: ‘Dancers in the Wind’ (2016), ‘Death’s Silent Judgement’ (2017), and ‘Songs of Innocence’ (2018).

Anne Coates lives in London with three demanding cats and enjoys reading, going to the theatre and cinema, wining and dining.

The character of the PI is portrayed as a conventional male- looking at every girl, getting into trouble and blaming it on women, not being able to decipher what’s in front of him and being frustrated about it.

Apart from the typical, testosterone-y male image, the book is a fantastic read for all the thriller and suspense junkies. The book will hold your attention from the very first page, till the end. The book is a labyrinth of suspense, mysteries that will make you want to read it in one go.

BOOK: Absent

AUTHOR: Emma Salisbury

GENRE: Thriller, Crime

ABSENT by EMMA SALISBURY is the fourth book in THE DS COUPLAND SERIES. It’s a fast paced book with a cast that has been with us since Book 1 of the series, though the book can be read as a standalone novel as well.

DS Coupland, a hardworking, good man is a cop whose life has taken a 360 turn. In the last novel, he killed off a serial killer after his family, and he is still dealing with its aftermath. However, with new chapter, comes unforeseen danger that seems like a catastrophe in light of what has already happened. He unveils a human trafficking group and their far-reaching power. This novel sees him juggling pressures in the work as well as at home.

The book is fast paced, with tale woven in such a way that keeps the readers at the edge of their seats. All the characters have so much to offer and we explore that as the story progresses. The book shows the hard work and predicaments of law enforcement, along with them trying to overcome personal stuff.

The author has done a fantastic job on the book. She has created characters with whom the readers can sympathize and empathize. The story is written in such a marvelous way that helps readers catch up with what has happened in the previous book, as well as maintain the mystery and essence of the newness in the story. Each book’s adventure is different from the other, yet the story seems connected in a way that makes the readers invest in the characters and build a relationship with them overtime.
