Unholy Origin

Standard

Incident on Damascus II cover     Father Nathan Jackson does not discuss his past. The way he carries himself and sometimes uses unexpected brute force to help the less fortunate gives his friends a glimpse into the person he was before. Who was he and what brought him into the priesthood?

Sivils’ fifth novella in the Capital City Characters series, Incident on Damascus II gives us these answers. It is also the strangest of stories to date. Next to Sarah, Father Nathan is one of the most beloved characters in the Inspector Thomas Sullivan series.

5 out of 5 stars.

**This book is expected to be published on June 23, 2020.**

Fast Learner

Standard

The Young Detective cover     Mark Josephson is the youngest person to ever make Detective on the Capital City Police Force. But, then again, he had the best mentor, Inspector Thomas Sullivan. What makes him tick? What is his story? Is he as hardnosed as Sully?

Sivils’ third novella in The Capital City Characters series, The Young Detective gives us insight into who Josephson really is. As much as he tries to emulate Sully, he still has a lot to learn. When Sully is off-world Josephson must put his skills to the test.

Another engaging, fast read from the Inspector Thomas Sullivan series spinoff.

And Then There Were Three

Standard

The Girl Who Wasn't There Cover     Sarah dreams of nothing but freedom from the lab in which she and her two identical sisters were created. They are clones, and therefore, illegal in their existence. Each of the sisters is gifted with special abilities unique only to themselves. Once they realize that Maria is scheduled for organ harvesting Elle and Sarah hatch a plan to escape.

Sivils’ fourth novella in The Capital City Characters series, The Girl Who Wasn’t There is a gritty look at the underworld of cloning. Set far into the future it is an in-depth look at Sarah, Inspector Thomas Sullivan’s partner, and her origins.

What sets this story apart from the others is the illustrations throughout. It wouldn’t take much to turn this into a graphic novel. It’s a fast read and well written.

Trouble Comes In Threes

Standard

Dolls Dames and Danger

Inspector Thomas Sullivan has few folks that he calls friends and even fewer that he holds dear. So, when bounty hunters threaten the two ladies that he treasures more than life itself, things get messy.  There’s the law, and then there’s justice. And, the two don’t necessarily go hand in hand.

Sivils’ second novella in the Capital City Characters series, Dolls, Dames, and Danger highlights the female support characters. It also shows us Sully’s softer side and his total lack of understanding of the female psyche.

This book has everything you’ve come to expect from an Inspector Thomas Sullivan story. Sivils delivers once again. And, kudos to his cover designer.

Where The Whiskey Drowns

Standard

Friends in Low Places cover     Joe Maynard runs the restaurant/bar that Inspector Thomas Sullivan takes his meals. But who is he really? What’s his story? Joe won’t tell you.

Sivils’ first novella in the Capital City Characters series, Friends In Low Places provides you with a look into how Joe came to Beta Prime and subsequently established Joe’s Place. He’s got a past that he’d rather keep there.

After reading the Inspector Thomas Sullivan series it was nice to get the backstory on one of the supporting characters. While Joe’s Place plays an important role in the series, Joe himself is mostly quiet and unassuming until he isn’t.

A Paradise Built Upon Lies

Standard

The Price of a Lie cover     Thomas Sullivan has been asked to solve the death of a very wealthy man’s son. The remote location has Father Nathan unnerved. Sarah is the most scared she has ever been. Everything about the case screams ‘don’t take it!’ And for that very reason, Sully does.

Sivils’ latest novel in the Inspector Thomas Sullivan Thriller series, The Price Of A Lie is a study of mixed emotions. Father Nathan confronts his past. Sarah’s memories are rekindled. Sully just wants to find the truth.

P-42686 has the reputation of being the best place in the universe to work. So much so that workers rarely leave. The adage ‘what seems too good to be true usually is’ fits P-42686 to a t. Find out what has everyone on edge and see more depth to our favorite characters.

Human Trafficking Knows No Limit

Standard

Dangerous is the Game cover     Thomas Sullivan goes undercover. He uses his expertise as an inspector to help conceal and enhance his new persona. Human trafficking is one of the most despicable crimes there is. The assignment seems straightforward yet is anything but.

Sivils’ third prequel to the Inspector Thomas Sullivan Thriller series, Danger Is The Game follows Sully when he is at his lowest of lows. He quickly becomes enmeshed with the most depraved of society. The more he sees the angrier he becomes. An angry Sully is a dangerous Sully.

Tackling human trafficking on a galaxy-wide scale is not for the faint of heart. We see the best and worst of Sully as a result.
