New Dawn

Declan Conner

Shaw needs to overcome his own demons if he is going to rescue his daughter from the powerful forces that take her hostage.

When five women are reported to LAPD as missing, the same day in 2008, all eighteen years old and within a mile radius , they could all be partying. When two more clusters in California are identified, taking the toll to nineteen; homicide detective Brett Shaw knows it going to be no party for him. With the details fed into the national computer, a pattern emerges in every state throughout the US and Homeland Security put a gag on media reports.

Six years later, the mystery unsolved, Shaw will never forget that day or the events that took place. It was also the day he handed in his badge to look after his daughter, Amy. As the Sheriff of a small town, Shaw isn’t given the time to dwell on the past, when he is called to the scene of the town’s first murder. Clues lead to him back to the case of the missing girls that he never had chance to investigate.

As he comes closer to the truth, his daughter is targeted, her life in danger by powerful forces, their existence buried just as the reports of the missing girls.


Deadly Journey

Declan Conner

Someone wants Rawlings dead. A Cartel needs him alive for now, but in chains. Rawlings? He wants to deny them both. Someone will lose.

D.E.A. Agent Kurt Rawlings has never given more than a cursory thought to what life is like for those criminals he has sent to prison. Even less so if every minute of the day those incarcerated face the fear of death at the hands of others. He wishes he had thought about it, because now he is living it himself.

Assailants, who hold a contract on his life, take Rawlings from the streets of El Paso. When a Mexican cartel buyout the contract, he is transferred across the border. It becomes apparent that this is not a simple kidnap and ransom.

He is running out of time if he is to return to his family alive. It will be no easy task. Whoever wants him dead has a long reach and Rawlings captivity isn't going to stop them. It is going to take all his ingenuity to figure out a plan of escape, but his enemies are on a killing spree—and he's next in the firing line.

Chapter one. (Scene 1) I am assuming the scenes are short sharp chapters which add to the pace. General thoughts as reading. Disjointed at times. (Not all your fault)I kept thinking one thing only for my doubts in the story to be answered later on, or that I had missed something. Other than that... view book

This is an interesting story, but I stopped at his cold feet on the floor. Sorry about it seeming picky, but if you can sort out what follows and send me a message, I'll read on.

I don’t read or write historical, so I can only view this from a readers enjoyment scale. The title is in itself “intriguing”, given that the King and gentry of the day, I assume, would all be fiercely Christian. So I would stick with the title. Chapter 1 I enjoyed the first chapter for th... view book

I’ve tried to concentrate on the story and voice, which I found interesting, rather than pick up on editing issues. I would never consider writing or reading 2nd or 1st person present tense. I am surprised it works. Well done. With regards to the voice, you are using contractions, which is g... view book
