KA Lugo, well known as a romance author, under a different name, has struck out into the exciting world of thrillers, with her new release, Slaughtered. Ms Lugo pulls readers into the world of main character, Jack Slaughter. After the brutal murder of his daughter, and the disappearance of his wife, Jack’s life falls to pieces.

Then the bodies start to drop. These bodies are apparently being staged to taunt him. Readers are taken on a thrilling ride as Jack gets closer to discovering who the killer is, and the motivation behind the kills.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a really juicy murder mystery. It’s an excellent read, which will curly your toes and tingle your spine. I couldn’t put it down!

“Why didn’t she ever call me? I’d have talked.”

“I know, Aiden. And I don’t mean to belittle, but you’re so young.”

“I’m almost nineteen!”

“And she was far older than you, in ways you can’t imagine.”

“I knew about her father and grandfather.”

“But you didn’t know the worst, and I won’t be the one to tell you. She was working up the courage to tell you about the baby. She had petitioned to get her back, but it was so expensive. She said she had a way to get the money, but didn’t explain and I didn’t ask. I should…

Ten entertaining biographical stories set in Dickens County, Texas portray rural life during the Great Depression. They reflect the straitened circumstances, strong work ethic and close sense of community of the time, as well as the resilience and ingenuity of that generation. Despite the difficulties, or perhaps because of them, Benji’s childhood was marked by strong family ties and sheer love of life.

The Ninja Tattoo by Dellani Oakes - 200

Excerpt from The Ninja Tattoo by Dellani Oakes

“How many are there?” Teague demanded.

“Three. I swear, just us three.”

“Why are you watching me? I’ve got nothing worth stealing. I’m a working stiff.”

“I really don’t know. Boss man told me to cover you, I’m here.”

“Who’s your boss?”

“Buddy, it’s more than my life’s worth to tell you that.”

“Then you go back and you tell your boss man this. And you quote me. You’re f**king with the wrong guy. I will find you and I will end you. Repeat that.”

Hesitantly, the man did. Teague made him repeat it until he was word perfect.

“Now, you go tell your boss that. And unless you want to get caught in the hell that’s coming, you get your ass out of town.”

“I’m sorry,” the man babbled. “I’m so sorry!” He ran down the slope of the yard, across the street and to the park a couple blocks away.
