Know More

The Hostile is an unusual contemporary paranormal thriller with a sprinkling of horror. In a rundown area of Manchester inside a decrepit bathroom in a small, terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, an unfathomable, powerful entity infiltrates loner Serena’s life, with disastrous results. The enigmatic force not only dramatically affects Serena’s life but threatens the wellbeing of everyone she knows, especially those people who earn the strange girl’s displeasure. It soon becomes clear that people should never upset Serena if they know what’s good for them. After reading The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. the same way again.

A Word from the Author

Author Joy Mutter pictureIn a rundown area of Manchester, inside the bathroom of a terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, a powerful entity befriends young Serena with disastrous results. This unlikely enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena’s life but also threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those people who’ve earned the strange girl’s displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena 
 if they know what’s good for them. After reading The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. in the same way again.

It’s hard to believe I’m writing my 11th book, which is also the 4th book in The Hostile series, considering the initial inspiration for writing book 1, The Hostile, came from noticing how weird a domestic item looked in my own bathroom in Oldham. It started me thinking, and The Hostile was born. The Hostile was a delight to write, and readers also seem to be enjoying each of the “refreshingly original” books in the series. I self-published The Hostile on Amazon, just as I’ve done with all my 10 books, putting my skills as a former graphic designer with 20 years experience to good use by designing all my own covers, interiors, and marketing material.

The Hostile is said to be “bizarrely captivating” and can be read as a standalone book. The same is true of book two, Holiday for The Hostile, and also the third book, The Hostile Game. Book four will also be a standalone, but it would be even more enjoyable to start with The Hostile and work your way through. I promise it will be worth your while.

Know More

The Reliquary is the sequel to The Keresa Headdress. The fast-paced crime fiction novel takes place in Salt Lake City, Utah. The unique cast of characters from the Keresa Headdress are back, along with new team members, to solve another extraordinary criminal investigation involving fossil theft and a psychotic killer.

FBI Special Agent Karen Adams’ career has flat lined since the exciting Keresa Headdress investigation, where she met Special Agent Marcus “Playboy” McCoy and her fiancĂ©, archaeologist Derek Simms. Karen’s supervisor, Roger Miller has since reassigned her to investigating mundane medical waste, fraud and abuse cases. Karen and Marcus are reunited as unlikely partners when a paleontology team goes missing in the remote Morrison Formation near Richfield, Utah.

The missing persons case quickly escalates into a chilling nightmare that no-one could have expected. Karen and Marcus soon discover the murdered scientists along with missing Allosaurus fossils. The violent killer leaves few leads to pursue, and the team enlists Riley, a local polygamist and nudist, along with heavyset homicide detective, Colin Childs, to assist with the investigation. Marcus continues his “Playboy McCoy” antics until he meets Dr. Lisa Gruber, a paleontologist from the University of Utah who is unlike any woman he has ever met.

Dealing with recent personal issues, Karen finds herself in another professional frustrating situation. Unfortunately, she must risk her own life as another case submerges her into the unimaginable underworld of antiquities theft and the criminally insane.




A Word from the Author

author-larry-d-shackelford-pictureThe Reliquary is the second installment to The Keresa Headdress. The fast-paced crime fiction novel takes place in Salt Lake City, Utah. The discovery of pristine remains of an Allosaurus fossil in the Morrison Formation is the highlight of a university paleontology team. Six weeks in to the excavation, they have an unexpected visitor. The professor, Dr. Hernandez senses something is not right with this individual. The excavation site is in a remote area, and not easily accessible. The stranger’s story and peculiar interest in the fossil does not add up. The zany casts of characters from the Keresa Headdress are back, along with new team members, to solve another extraordinary criminal investigation involving fossil theft and a psychotic killer. FBI Special Agent Karen Adams’ career has flat lined since the exciting Keresa Headdress investigation, where she met Special Agent Marcus “Playboy” McCoy.

Marcus continues his “Playboy McCoy” antics until he meets Dr. Lisa Gruber, a paleontologist from the University of Utah who is unlike any woman he has ever met. But, Marcus can’t shake off a feeling that he is missing something vitally important that would help them bring this case to a close. Dealing with recent personal issues, Karen finds herself in another professional frustrating situation. Unfortunately, she must risk her own life as another case submerges her into the unimaginable underworld of antiquities theft and the criminally insane. As the body count rises, Karen is determined to solve the investigation. “Although The Reliquary is the second book in the series, it doesn’t read like one and can very easily stand-alone. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in thrillers, for this book certainly is one. Well done Shackelford, for another wonderful read.” Amazon.com reviewer.
