Super sleuth Sister Fidelma returns in the eighth historical mystery by Peter Tremayne, acclaimed author of THE MONK WHO VANISHED, VALLEY OF THE SHADOW and many more. PRAISE FOR ACT OF MERCY: 'Wonderfully evocative' The Times When Sister Fidelma sets out on a pilgrimage in the autumn of AD 666, her main preoccupation is to reflect on her commitment to the religious life and her relationship with the Saxon monk, Eadulf, whom she has left behind. Complications arise during the first night on the ship when one of the pilgrims is apparently washed overboard. The discovery of a blood-stained robe raises the question of murder and Fidelma finds herself having to focus all her abilities on solving the mystery. Death dogs the tiny band of pilgrims in the close confines of the ship, but is not until the Holy Shrine is almost reached that the amazing truth is uncovered... What readers are saying about ACT OF MERCY: 'I never tire of reading about the escapades of this very self-opinionated young woman and her interactions with some very strange characters! Another great read!' 'So many twists I could not put it down! Pilgrims and pirates - Fidelma has trouble finding the truth' 'An intriguing glimpse of Fidelma's interior life and past'

In October 2001, a desperate screenwriter took the advice of actor/producer/director Bruce Campbell and shot his first independent movie, a short entitled Despair. With only a VHS-C camcorder, one location, natural lighting, two people (himself and his wife) and a rabbit at his disposal, he completed the film in two days. Two months later, it was picked up for worldwide distribution. The screenwriter's name was Mark Baranowski. He and his wife, model-actress Ryli Morgan, would then come to be known as On Mark Productions, going on to make several more micro-budget shorts and feature films over the next ten years. Working with the likes of Brinke Stevens, Lynn Lowry, Suzi Lorraine and Teri Weigel, the couple became increasingly well known and respected within the realm of cult cinema. They've been featured guests at numerous horror film conventions along the eastern United States, while assisting in the productions of others, both on and off camera. From Despair to Beloved: The Provocative Cinema of On Mark Productions is the official guide to their entire film catalog thus far, spanning from 2001-2011. Each title is thoroughly analyzed and reviewed, beginning with Despair (2001) and continuing on to Ryli Morgan: Audition (2002), Runaway Terror (2002), The Zombie Room (2003), Expendable (2003), Sin By Murder (2004), The Powerful Play (2004), Heaven Help Me, I'm In Love (2005), Ill Times (2009), Mister Dissolute (2009) and Hardly Beloved (2011). An exclusive interview with Mark and Ryli, behind-the-scenes stories and photographs, an entire shooting script, poster and video box art, ad mats, production stills, and cast recollections make this book an exhaustive and invaluable resource for not only fans of these films, but for anyone interested in true DIY movie-making.

Sabrina finds it difficult to work on her latest suspense novel when her Aunt Rowe’s antics keep tying up her thoughts.

Phelps is the Harlan Coben of real-life thrillers. –Allison Brennan "Phelps's writing reads like a mystery novel." --Suspense Magazine The crime stunned quiet Mineral Wells, Texas: 49-year-old Bob Dow shot execution-style in his own bed, his invalid mother locked in the next room--and a cache of homemade porn starring the town's underage girls. The two accused killers--teen lovers Bobbi Jo Smith and Jennifer Jones--were on the run, intent on going out in a cross-country blaze of glory. M. William Phelps exposes a gripping tale of sexploitation, lust, and betrayal, while questioning the court's fateful verdict in a tantalizing forensic puzzle. Were both girls equally guilty of murder? Or was one merely a pawn in the other's dainty, blood-stained hands? "One of America's finest true-crime writers." --Vincent Bugliosi Includes 16 Pages Of Dramatic Photos
