Something Most Deadly by Ann Self

Jane Husted tries to live her dream of becoming an international show rider, but life on the lavish Springhill Estate is more like a nightmare, and it brings to the fore an unrealized psychic gift.  Prior to this, ESP was hocus-pocus, and not something she needed or believed in. Now it could help her stay a step ahead of a killer.

Madeline Fanning, Jane’s best friend and fellow survivor of their tattered childhood on public assistance, is now a clinical psychologist on staff at a large Boston Hospital. Each woman  has fought tenaciously to get out of the swamp of poverty and free herself from the stigma of welfare.  Madeline is already attaining success, but Jane is still grasping for the brass ring, her life complicated by the snobbish, backstabbing elite on Springhill Estate.

Madeline recognizes Jane’s psychic ability before she does, and encourages her to use it to navigate the cutthroats and savage jealousy hidden just beneath the surface on the deceptively beautiful estate with its rolling hills, nineteenth-century stone mansion, and gothic barn.

State Police Detectives Westerlund and Russell are brought to the estate when someone falls into a diabolical trap intended to kill, and kill it does. The detectives face a myriad of oddball personalities to sort through: The Whitbeck family, owners of Springhill and inhabitants of the mansion; very rich and not missing an opportunity to remind you.  Lars Wallenberg, Austrian coach and trainer fresh from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Sam Noone, former jockey from Louisville Kentucky, now the barn manager.  Dylan Ripley, young, smart-alecky, full of wry humor and observations as he cleans stalls and cares for the horses.  Owen Flint, irritable, misogynistic trainer and coach whose temper is legendary; feared by horses and women alike as he struts around in tight breeches and impossibly long boots.  Lucinda Whitbeck, narcissistic, domineering, and pickled with jealousy over Jane’s superior talent.  Gladys Barrett, Lucinda’s grandmother, determined that Lucinda will find glory and her day in the limelight even if they have to stomp everyone else into the dirt.

Jane is shocked when wealthy businessman Brian Canaday shows up as an investor in European sport horses the estate is importing and breeding. Brian was an obsession of her high-school years, but so far out of her reach he’s in the stratosphere. She tries to avoid him so as not trigger memories of the dreadfully thin, poorly dressed ‘Plain Jane’ of the past, and ruin her new image. Knowledge of her seedy, impecunious childhood would make her prime gossip fodder for the well-heeled denizens of Springhill.

Genuine love story, no graphic sex, no forensic gore. Mild language.

Johnny Oops 11 - Timeless by Arthur Levine

Johnny Oops 11 is a rocket scientist who flies a spaceship to a far away Planet with his inner self, Outy, and marries a bald Blue lady by the name of Ala who never ceases asking Johnny funny questions. They have a son called Johnworld who is Magenta colored, has Yellow hair and perceives his mission in life to be to propagate different races. They spend most of their lives trying to ward off the prejudice and bigotry that follows people of color.

Discriminated against back on Earth, Johnny Oops 11 sets off once again in another spaceship together with millions of Indolts—Ala’s people, and the Magentas of which Johnworld is the first. They have to shrink all their people temporarily down to their essence—in the case of the Indolts no more than the equivalent of an eighth of an ounce and convert each of them to bar codes laminated on to blue plastic disks one inch long by two inches wide. They travel through time rather than space enabling their trip to be timeless.

When they reach their destination they reconstitute the Indolts and Magentas back to normal size using giant scanners. On their new home of Everworld they meet other races of various colors and stripes called the Fugats, the Juicers, and the Three Tribes.

Before long they form a Great Society, which is intent on not color-coding their emotions. After fighting off skeptical suicide bomber Mimon birds who don’t believe they can succeed, they discover a new reality and enter the Paradise of their dreams.

Murder on the Danube by William S. Shepard

"Robbie" Cutler, a thirtyish American career diplomat, is beginning an assignment as Political Officer at the American Embassy in Budapest. He previously served as Consul in Bordeaux (where he was yanked out for his own safety after exposing a Basque terrorist leader, in Vintage Murder, the first in this series of Robbie Cutler diplomatic mysteries).
The return to Budapest of a prominent Hungarian-American, Janos Magassy, sets off a train of events. Magassy had been the leader of a resistance group during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Before its members can meet again, Magassy is brutally murdered in a side street in Obuda. Given the murdered man’s national prominence, American Ambassador Eleanor Horton tells Robbie to keep a close eye on the police investigation. Working in tandem with Inspector Racz of Central Budapest Police Headquarters, Robbie develops leads in the murder.
The 1956 circle linked Eva Molnar, whom Robbie's father, a former diplomat, had failed to save in 1956, and the murdered Magassy. Included also are a currently rising Hungarian politician, Imre Mohacsi, a Ministry of Justice official, Attila Nemzeti, and a prosperous German banker, Attila Szepvaros. Their stories are played out in a continuing flashback to the events of 1956. 
Complicating Robbie's investigation is the refusal of the Hungarian Government to open its own intelligence files from the period. Who was the police spy that betrayed them? The search takes him and his visiting sister Evalyn to the border fortress town of Gyula on the Hungarian plain, and even into the Hungarian ethnic regions of Transylvania, for a dramatic encounter with the reclusive Eva Molnar.
A socially adept bachelor, Robbie is much in demand at the many receptions and dinners given by the Budapest diplomatic circuit. He feels himself increasingly drawn to Julie Kovatch, the neglected young wife of the Australian Ambassador, Alexander Kovatch, a violent man, and himself an ethnic Hungarian who had fled that country as a teenager after the 1956 upheaval.
His romantic life complicates the mystery as Robbie gradually unearths Kovatch's 1956 past. Robbie's Uncle Seth Cutler, a nationally prominent former intelligence official, finds out from CIA biographic records that Kovatch is the brother of another member of Magassy's 1956 resistance group, the missing Csaba Kovacs. Ambassador Kovatch is also trying to find the intelligence agent who killed his brother in 1956. The trouble is that Kovatch is a driven but mistaken Count of Monte Cristo who is being set up by the real killer, as he investigates the banker, the politician, and the government official who were members of his brother's resistance group. 
Post Cold War Hungary is a compelling place to be. Hungarian domestic politics involves an uneasy transition to democracy. The old Warsaw Pact intelligence connections are still there, as Robbie begins to suspect that the real motivation in the Magassy killing is a contemporary one. Is someone protecting money laundering by the Russian Mafia? Like neighboring Vienna of "The Third Man" period everyone, it seems, has something to hide, or to blame on the past. And the Russian Mafia will not hesitate to intervene when their interests seem threatened.

The Last Chance by Ramon Ballard

In the weeks preceding an historical presidential election, Horace, a patriotic 115 year old man honored for never missing an election and the son of a prejudiced southern gentleman must make a tough decision, whether to vote for a heroic veteran or to take a chance on an up and coming young black man. 
As Horace relates the story of his life to a reporter and his friends in the nursing home, he ponders the people he has met, the lessons he has learned, and how they have coincided with the growth of a nation’s soul. Horace will tell you himself, “I have lived a long life, not an extraordinary one.” As you read this story of a man conquering prejudices developed as a child, you will note the parallels between the development of his ideals and those of a nation finally understanding the true meaning of: “All men are created equal.” Horace’s life might be more extraordinary than he believes. 
It’s been said that your life ain’t worth a damn unless you touch the souls of those you meet along the way.  Horace begins life on a dilapidated southern mansion and in the course of 115 years, he touches the lives of extraordinary people, from a couple of young bicycle shop owners on the barren dunes of North Carolina, to the White House, the baseball diamond, Tin Pan Alley,  early Hollywood, and finally to a young black Southern preacher with a dream.  
Horace’s life also reflects the influences of lost friends that have brightened his journey and lost loved ones that made his life worth a damn and ultimately left him, The Last Chance.

I, Senias by Samuel Drury Owens

Senias is the son of a prominent family living in first century B.C.E. Gaul.  It is he who relates to the reader the often tragic story of a mighty army of warriors called the Romans, who roamed the Gallic countryside murdering folks, plundering villages, snatching women and children to sell as slaves. The deep spirituality of Senias leads to his selection as an apprentice philosopher and thrusts him into the cryptic world of Celtic mythology.  On an eventful journey to the capital city of Gergovia, Senias meets the feisty Savrina.  Though opposites in temperament, a deep bond develops between the two lovers.

Once the conflict between the marauding Romans and the people of Gaul reaches the point of all-out-war, Senias observes the intense personal struggles between Vercingetorix and Caesar for dominance and power.  The last significant battle between the two ancient civilizations is fought at the hill fortress of Alesia.  The struggle for Alesia stands as an eternal testament of the determination, courage and sacrifices of the Gallic people in the defense of their independence.  An independence so fierce that it lies, ironically, at the very heart of their eventual defeat.
