Francisco Flynn is an officer in Land Management in the Mojave Desert, and he wouldn't have it any other way. The son of an Irish immigrant railroad man and a half-Mexican, half-Paiute mother, he lives in the caboose that his father brought up to a hilltop when the railroad stopped running there. Frank loves the desert and the animals that live there. He loathes the wealthy hunters who hire Indians to lead them to where they can shoot Bighorn rams and take their heads to hang as trophies on the walls of their fancy studies. Over the years, Frank has come upon dead bodies---the remains of people who got lost and ran out of water, their corpses drying into mummies in the desert heat. But now he finds a dead man who has only recently lost his life, and it looks very much like he's been murdered. His shoes are gone, he's shirtless, and there is no canteen anywhere in sight. A day or so later, Frank hears word of a trio of bikers who have blown into town looking for a missing comrade. They pick fights in the local bar and don't hesitate to kill when it suits them. Frank is certain that the dead man he found is connected to them, and that many people could be endangered, including the woman reporter he has learned to love. Frank will do anything to rid "his" desert of the bikers who are spreading danger and hate, including putting his own life on the line. With Shadow of the Raven, David Sundstrand adds a shining new voice to Southwestern crime fiction.

While teaching at a Canadian university, ex-pat American English professor Sean O’Hara stumbles on the diary of his great-great-great grandmother, Bridget Ryan. With a doctorate in English literature based on the work of Edgar Allan Poe, Sean is drawn into Bridget’s story when he discovers that she and Poe were contemporaries, and more than that, it appears they were friends for a time. The story sweeps us into Bridget’s life in Boston and Baltimore, as we begin to piece together the mystery that still surrounds the final few days of Poe’s life. Rich in carefully researched historical detail, this book is one answer to what really might have happened to Poe in those last, lost days of his life – and who the mysterious stranger who to this day places three roses and cognac on Poe’s grave every year in the wee hours of the morning on his birthday might be.

"They are skillful fliers. Oh yes, they can soar to great heights, and can imitate a variety of sounds - including the human voice." He looked at me over the top of his spectacles. "Mrs. Ryan, if I might, is there anything specific about ravens that you need to know?" "Do they have any symbolic meaning of which you are aware?" I said quietly. "Yes, yes indeed," he said, his eyes lighting up... ...and Bridget Ryan has her own reasons for wanting to know. If it had not been for that black feather she had received by post from an old friend - one Edgar Poe - she would never have thought about ravens. But now it was all she could think about. More than a century and a half have passed since Edgar Allan Poe died, alone in Baltimore in 1849, and still no one really knows how - or even why he was in that city. But Bridget knows, and this is her story. Author P.J. Parsons has been a medical and business writer for 20 years. "The Alternative History Series"

In the Shadow if the Raven - What had I done? I felt the life slip from her fingers that once gripped my hands that tightened around her neck. Tighter and tighter, I wanted to be sure she was dead. What she had taken from me, the lives she'd destroyed, had been a part of me, now I would take from her the only thing of any value, her life. As her lifeless body tumbled from my fingers, my mind took me back to our youth, to a time when all I thought of was the young man who hid in the stables. She was jealous even then but I was able to put her off to some degree, able to keep the boy I loved interested in me. * * * * * Ethan Frederick was born on a warm spring night in the country town of Middleboro. He had an elder sister by the name of Martha who aided his mother in his care for the most of his life. It was said that his sister named him. "Ethan" was the decided name and that's how he was registered at the local church. Robert Fellows, the boy he'd later fall in love with, was born the same night just down the lane from the big house Ethan's family owned. Robert's father worked for Ethan's. Early in life Ethan learned that his sister had a means of getting herself into trouble and if he were anywhere near at the time, him as well. His father told him often that they were a family of "means," but he had no idea at the time what his father was talking about. Ethan had always dreamed of being a cowboy "Ride Em Hard," you know what I mean, he'd say. I know what he meant and it was anything about horses. Ethan had always known he like boys, it was in his being, in his heart. It was the most natural thing in the world. Robert Fellows became the love of Ethan's life just about the time he discovered his sister's knack of getting herself into trouble. Robert was a tall bright eyed lad and Ethan fell in love with him the first moment he laid eyes on him. He gave Ethan a look with those sparkling green eyes of his that made his head spin. "What no work to do," his sister would bark at Robert. "Leave him alone," Ethan hissed at her. "Oh I see, your throwing me over for him are you?" That was just what he was doing but didn't realize it at the time. I'd hated her from the start, that mean little girl in church that even the priest wanted to smack, the snitch that everyone hated, that was Martha.

First his lover and now his mentor have been killed - the first by the dangerous, ambitious Savin, the second in a revolutionary uprising. Alone, and with even his magical abilities betraying him, he has only one goal left: revenge. Far to the north, if Teia has one goal it is survival. Attempting to cross a high mountain pass in the teeth of winter is an act of desperation, but the message she carries cannot wait for spring. An invasion force is gathering behind her, and only an ancient order of knights can hold them back. The danger is real, there are enemies in the shadows, and time is running out ...

The Raven's Shadow, the third book of Elspeth Cooper's The Wild Hunt series finds war brewing on both sides of the Veil between the worlds. The desert of Gimrael is aflame with violence, and in the far north an ancient hatred is about to spill over into the renewal of a war that, a thousand years ago, forged an empire. This time, it may shatter one. Wrestling with his failing grip on the power of the Song, and still trying to come to terms with the horrifying events he witnessed in El Maqqam, Gair returns to the mainland with only one thing on his mind: vengeance. It may cost him his life, but when everything that he had to live for is being stripped away from him, that may be a fair price to pay. Old friends and old foes converge in a battle of wills to stem the tide of the Nimrothi clans as they charge south to reclaim the lands lost in the Founding Wars. If they succeed, the rest of the empire may be their next target. And with the Wild Hunt at their head, the overstretched Imperial Army may not be enough to stop them.

Three moons are rising. They are rising over the snowy Archen Mountains, where Teia struggles through the high passes to carry her warning to the Empire: the Nimrothi war band is poised to invade and at their head stands Ytha. She means to release the Wild Hunt - and with it Maegern the Raven, the Keeper of the Dead. In the desert of Gimrael, the moons are rising over the fires of revolution - flames that have already robbed Gair of a friend and left him alone in a hostile city, unsure even if the Song is still his to command. He has one last duty to discharge, and then nothing will stand between him and his ultimate goal: vengeance. And in the Nordmen's chilly halls, Savin plays out a game in which kings and chieftains and men are but pawns on a chessboard that spans the Veil itself. Three moons are rising. When the trinity is complete, the endgame will begin. You can learn more at www.elspethcooper.com or by following @ElspethCooper on twitter.
