“Another great read from Pendelton C. Wallace. I find myself wishing there another book to read about these characters as soon as I finish. If you are looking for entertaining fast paced actions this is the author for you. If you haven’t read any of his work, good for you, as you can keep on going until you’ve read them all.”

I love Cat as a special human whom I can relate …

“This book is so fast paced, just up my alley. I love Cat as a special human whom I can relate to…..Some of the characters are so politically incorrect that one can’t help but smile. The plots are interesting and relevant and eye opening. Don’t read if you are put off by explicit sex. Read if you can appreciate a great story line.”

Great storytelling and a great read!

Rise of the GiantsFREE on Amazon!

Semi-divine super soldiers, disgruntled fallen angels, giant dudes on high protein diets, beastly creatures of twisted divine genetics, a Heavenly grudge match played out on an Earthly stage ??? Just another arcane day at the office in the Guild of Deacons.

In life, Captain Dean Robinson was a soldier. A rather elite member of the US military. West Point grad, Army Ranger, professional tough guy with an unrelenting sarcastic charm ??? a genuine stand up dude. However, upon his untimely, and inexplicably predestined, death at the hand of a fallen angel with a serious superiority complex and snappy wardrobe, he became something else ??? a Deacon. But not the kind of deacon you???re thinking of. Unless, of course, you???re thinking about a semi-divine super soldier cloaked in darkness and wielding a hell-fire smothered sword and otherworldly shotgun. If that???s the case ??? you???re right on.

Not quite angel but no longer human, he became the last of forty-nine souls blessed and cursed with an equal share of God???s wrath. A physical manifestation of the left hand of God walking amongst men. Conceived of the Earth but no longer mortal, he was bestowed with a mantle of power created for one sole purpose ??? to maintain the Balance between mankind and the bastard offspring of Heaven ??? the nephilim. A harrowing collection of cursed beings resulting from the blasphemous breeding of fallen angels and human women. An ancient race of giants and other assorted beasties of an unnatural persuasion that nearly devoured the human race. Literally.

Finding himself at the prophetic pinnacle of a millennia old battle raging in the shadows of the Earth and the Heavens, Dean and his newfound gang of arcane sidekicks, from the Seventh Realm of Third Heaven, embark on an epic mission to thwart the rise of the new generation of unnatural beasties and save the world from certain apocalyptic demise.

There is an evil in the world of man. It???s been here since the beginning. Hidden neatly within the fabric of our very existence, festering through generation upon generation ??? Manipulating ??? Corrupting ??? Evolving. Closer than you could ever imagine. Conversely, there are those that maintain the Balance.

***** Five Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars
Action-Filled Fun
ByClyde Winnstonon October 26, 2016

Shades of El Chapo–the real-life Mexican cartel leader! Much of Wallace’s novel could be snatched directly from today’s headlines.

The book is an action-packed adventure involving the search for El Posolero (Think of the Mexican dish posole), so named because he likes to murder his enemies, dispose of their flesh, and send the bones to their families. El Posolero will stop at nothing to gain control of drug trafficking in Baja California. But he doesn’t reckon with the likes of continuing series characters Ted Higuera, Cat Flaherty, Chris, et al.

A sub-plot deals with a ruthless partner in Chris’ father’s law firm trying to oust Harry’s wife and son from the firm after the father’s death.

Wallace’s plot grabs the reader’s attention and holds it from the first page to the last. It’s a fun read, filled with manly men and gorgeous women and lots of gun fights.

I must say I’m glad Penn Wallace gave me an advanced reading copy in trade for an honest review. I certainly enjoyed the book and am sure you will too.

Contemporary noirish mystery!

Foreword Reviews 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist
2016 New York Book Festival – Runner Up

“Klingler presents his craftiest yarn to date, summoning the pulpy spirits of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The setting of Chicago rattles from the page in lines such as, ‘The buildings held noise and exhaust fumes around me like a torture chamber.'” –Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Recommended List)

Tommy has boomeranged back to his parents residence and a dead-end job after too many years in college. As he looks squarely at his next decade of life, his smartphone convinces him the time is ripe for a change. A gift from his grandfather provides the means, so he embarks on the path of blues artists and beatniks before him–and hits the road.

He immediately meets a damsel in hitchhiking distress who says her name is Mona. Her presence persuades him that the bright lights and dark clubs of Chicago might be his kind of town. So on a summer Saturday night they settle into a fancy hotel overlooking the beaches of Lake Michigan.

On Sunday…Mona disappears.

But she leaves behind more than a sweet memory that involves Tommy in a brand new cash flow problem he never imagined. While trying to sort out how to stay on the right side of the law and get back on the road, he meets a young criminologist who helps him, a DJ who doesn’t, and a librarian who teaches him about the city, women, and the art of the makeover. After truth and lies are stirred like a blue martini, being assaulted by a pink monkey, and witnessing a drive-by shooting that drowns a Ferrari–Tommy is desperate to help Mona.

If he can find her.

“A private investigator, a mysterious hitchhiker, dancers, gangsters, a mysterious bag that holds the unthinkable and twists and turns that will have the reader unable to put it down, Missing Mona by Joe Klingler has it all.”–San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 stars)
