When you can’t hear
death comes silently.

Scotland Yard detective Valerie Crowther is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a university for the Deaf in London, England. The murder investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world.

When more Deaf students are murdered, it becomes clear there is a serial killer operating within the sealed-off university. A chilling cat-and-mouse game evolves as the unknown killer targets Valerie and the virus claims more lives.

A stunning, claustrophobic, “whodunit” murder mystery, Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) is the eighth novel by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan. Included is a commentary by Deaf filmmaker Brent Macpherson on the unique aspects of Deaf culture the story covers. Together, the Morcans and Macpherson are currently developing a feature film adaptation of Silent Fear.

A Word from the Author

Author Alan Reynolds

Valley of the Serpent is the seventh book by award-winning author, Alan Reynolds to be published by Fisher King. The original concept changed as I did more research from a basic adventure novel into a sweeping tale of under-hand dealings in the world of Uranium mining. Featuring Harry Bentham, a young geologist, the first two chapters deal with a near-death experience for him whilst on a field-trip in Derbyshire which shapes his life. He eventually gets head-hunted by an unscrupulous international mining company and the story follows his journey from its headquarters in Switzerland to the Northern Territories of Australia where his eyes are opened by a series of events that threatens his life. I found the research fascinating, learning about rock formations and the ecological issues caused by some mining industries – very relevant in today’s world of fracking. The book is now available and already has 4 five star reviews.

Blurb

A story inspired by a northern California news account a few years ago … Some of the details in this fictional penning are true. Some of the details are exaggerated and are simply the work of the author’s imagination. What is clearly evidenced in this novel is the coldness of a mother’s heart and the madness of her cruelty. The mind cannot comprehend lives the children depicted here were forced to endure: from black punishment closets of hell, kitchen tables used for crudely performed operations, to a high sierra execution by fire. The terror is real. The pain is vicariously felt. Unbelievable? Yes, it is unbelievable that such depravity, such MAMA’S MADNESS exists in our world. Accept the embellishments with the truth.



A Word from the Author

Author Billy Ray Chitwood pictureWhen I researched the cruelty administered by a mother in Northern California to her daughters, I had to write about it… A tough book to pen, my emotions were at times visceral in their tragic reflections. Yes, there are some author embellishments in this novel, but the evil acts by this mother can scar the soul.
My fiction here can bring no earth-shaking remedies for the evil in the world. Hopefully and humbly, MAMA’S MADNESS can at least make us all more alert, more cautious, to the evil that could be hiding behind an insincere smile, an idle promise, or an offer of a ride home. Hopefully, it is just a silent siren to promote vigilance along with our penchant for kindness and love.
