Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
So last night I harvested my first six cherry tomatoes and shared three of them with my neighbor and the rest went into the salad I had with supper. They were absolutely delicious. My cucumbers are full of blooms and I assume in a few weeks they’ll start growing. And I can’t wait. Unfortunately, the squirrels ripped up all the lettuce that was just starting to grow. So, that’s a bit disappointing. I might have to try again come fall.
It’s almost time for the pools to be warm enough up here to get some swimming in… if I knew how to swim and didn’t turn into a lobster when the sun shines on me. Do you enjoy spending time by the pool reading and, of course, swimming?
Check out this week’s reads and get prepared for next week. There will be a ton of books on sale next week.
Enjoy and happy reading!

I guess saving the world once wasn’t enough…
First it was the auroras, lighting up Europe every night.
Then came the weird clouds over Africa.
The tidal shifts… the failing crops… the crazy changes to animal migration…
And I think all of this is just the start.
I don’t buy the official line that these are natural occurrences.
Not anymore. Not since a whistleblower hid a coded message in my invitation for an upcoming commemoration ceremony on The Vita.
Now I know the truth — that Earth is in serious danger from the side-effects of their reckless research.
Since the moment I found out, I’ve known what I have to do.
Three years ago, I went into space and almost died saving the world from a madman’s evil plan.
When I made it home, I swore I’d never leave my family behind again.
But to make sure we’ll still have a planet to call home in another three years, I have to go back.
And this time, they’re coming with me…
The Anomaly is the fourth book in The Earthburst Saga, which begins with Last Man Standing. From Craig A. Falconer, bestselling author of the global blockbuster Not Alone.
A FAST-PACED, ONE-TWO PUNCH OF CRIME AND DROP DEAD SUSPENSE.
Legendary lawman Eliot Ness goes solo… In 1929, Eliot Ness put away Al Scarface Capone and became the biggest living legend this side of law and order. Now it’s 1935. With The Untouchables and Prohibition behind him and the Great Depression falling darkly across the nation, Ness arrives in Cleveland to straighten out a crooked city.
An anonymous ring of bent cops is dealing in vice, graft, gambling and racketeering, over lorded by a mysterious top cop known as the outside chief. But between corrupt politicians, jealous colleagues, a parasitic reporter and two blondes with nothing in common, Ness has big troubles pulling the sheets off the bed of blue vipers.
“For anybody who loves crime novels, Max Allan Collins is the gold standard.”
Max Allan Collins Collection Vol. One: Eliot Ness includes the following unabridged novels:
Murder by The Numbers
The race is on to span the continent with steel rails—and someone is willing to do anything to stop it, even if it means spilling rivers of innocent blood!
In Book 1, The Iron Horse, Matthew Faraday is president of the Faraday Security Service, a detective agency specializing in work for the ever-expanding railroad empires. Hired to find out who is stirring up the Sioux and sabotaging the Kansas Pacific line as it builds westward, Faraday sends tough young agent Daniel Britten to the railhead, where he finds himself embroiled with surveyors, track layers, buffalo hunters, and a pair of beautiful young women. But there’s a killer stalking the railhead as well, and not only the fate of the railroad but also Britten’s very life depends on him uncovering the truth.
In Book 2, The Gold Train, the train-top murder of one of his female operatives has thrust Matthew Faraday, the wily chief of Faraday Security Service, into the dark and twisting tunnel of another railroad mystery, and a coded message in the dead woman’s pocket is the only clue.
In Book 3, Train of Glory, in one treasonous moment President Abraham Lincoln is dead, and – though his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, is quickly caught – the treachery is far from over. A plot is being hatched to kidnap Lincoln’s body from the funeral train that will carry the fallen leader through the countryside of mourners, from Washington to its final resting place in Springfield, Illinois. But the great railroad detective Matthew Faraday has gotten wind of the plot – although its perpetrators are still a mystery.
With the blessings of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and the aid of his newest and boldest agent, Cole Yeager, Faraday is sworn to protect the great man’s body from desecration – while ambush, runaway locomotives, and death-dealing renegades wait up ahead.
In Book 4, The Trackwalker, Jared Macalester is, to all appearances, a trackwalker for the Union Pacific. His first notable action in this entertaining Western pot-boiler is to throw a boorish cowboy off a train, while the train is in motion. Before Macalaster can show his face in the tale, bandits rob a UP train of its money shipment, and kill an agent. Macalester has, in fact, been assigned by the Faraday Security Agency to solve the robbery case, and uses the trackwalker position as a cover. His assignment evolves to cleaning up the railroad town of Ironsprings, and is complicated by the corrupt local lawmen and various roughnecks.
In Book 5, The Buffalo Train, It started out as a silly idea to bring buyers back to Abilene. Wrangle some buffalo, put them on a train, and ship them to Chicago so folks back east could see the massive, shaggy beasts with their own eyes. The concept seemed sound. What could go wrong?
But for John Creed, agent for the famed Faraday Security Service, it was anything but simple. First, Hank Miles was willing to do whatever was required to prevent the plan from succeeding. Hiding in the shadows was a silent partner. Creed’s biggest threat, however, came from the man in black—an assassin who took pleasure in his work and would not stop coming until the job was complete.
Before the Buffalo Train reached the end of the line, guns would roar, men would die, and Chicago would get a taste of what the “Wild West” was really like.
Faraday: The Complete Series includes the following books:
The Iron Horse
The Gold Train
Train of Glory
