Crown of Souls

Six months after stopping a deadly plague, Cole “Tox” Russell and his team are enjoying a little rest. That peace is short-lived when a sniper shot hits Tox. The enemy is discovered to be one of their own, a rogue Special Forces team operator.

Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he’s out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier.

Afraid his old friend is right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team engage in another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is cheating–he’s using a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.

Justice Buried
In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

Crisis Shot
Tess O’Rourke dreams of becoming the first female chief of police in Long Beach, California. As commander of the East Division, she is well on her way . . . until the night she responds to an officer-needs-assistance call and fatally shoots an unarmed teenager. Despite being cleared of wrongdoing by a grand jury, Tess is so hounded by the public that she takes a job in Oregon to escape the bad press.

Winning over the residents of Rogue’s Hollow might be more difficult than adjusting to her new role as police chief in the small, backwater town. Especially when her closest friend, the pastor’s wife, goes missing and the woman’s cousin is found shot. Tess finds an ally in sheriff’s deputy Steve Logan, but as they track down Rogue’s Hollow’s first murderer, she worries that she’s breaking one of her rules and getting too close to him.

Deadly Proof
In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.

Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.

Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything–even murder–to keep the case from going to trial.

  1. Hi! Thanks for the giveaway and the spotlight on the books. A question for the authors – how did you get the inspiration for these newly released books?

    • Hi MH!

      I drew a lot on my life as a lawyer to write Deadly Proof. My normal lawyer gig isn’t nearly as exciting as the book. But it was tons of fun to write this legal suspense.

    • My book is police related and the idea came to me because of all the high profile police shootings. I wanted to offer the other side, the cop who has to shoot, and it’s a legal shooting, but the optics are bad.

    • Justice Buried is set at the Pink Palace in Memphis, a place I’ve always wanted to include in a book. I grew up going to the Pink Palace every Sunday. As I thought about this story, I wondered how a detective would react to a beautiful building-climbing cat burglar.

    • Hi, MH! For my series, the inspiration came from the real Dr. Cathey, who suggested this artifact and supplied me some great research articles. AS I dug further, I found a real king (Tikulti-Ninurta II) who–legend holds–saw a crown falling from heaven with a black sheet. I couldn’t believe how perfect that was for a story!

  2. Do the authors also enjoy reading suspense or do they prefer to read a different genre?

  3. To all the authors where or how do you come up with the idea’s for your characters.

    • Some of my ideas have come from people I worked with, but most of the time as I think about the plot, the character pops up from that brainstorm session. My books are generally plot driven, not necessarily character driven. Having said that, there is always a spiritual theme woven through as well.

    • My characters often pop into my head with a problem. In Justice Buried, I knew I wanted Kelsey Adams to be a cat burglar, but I knew that wouldn’t fly for my editor, so I modified her to be a security specialist who covertly breached businesses’ firewalls and alarms systems.

    • Great question, Kim! My characters are usually with me long before the story comes to fruition. I’m a character-driven writer and that shows in my stories. For example, right now I have a character in mind–and I have his name. And I see him in one situation. That nugget of insight propels the rest–I start digging into who he is, then figure out a story that would work against him (because if it’s FOR him, then there’s no story haha).

  4. Oh wow. So many great new books. It’s like Christmas.

  5. If you wrote any other type of genre– how did you decide to go into suspense . Or if you only write suspense– did any real life situation trigger a thought for a novel?

    • I always loved suspense. But when I was in the 6th grade, my best friend’s father killed her and her mother and that has always haunted me. Not sure if that’s why I write suspense, but I did include her death in a book. BTW, for weeks afterward, I feared my own father would kill me and I sat up in bed for many nights, watching before I realized he wouldn’t. But it has haunted me.

    • Paula,
      I was a police officer, that kindled my interest in crime and justice. Suspense novels go hand in hand with crime and mystery.

  6. In writing suspense, do you ever run across research material that leaves you disturbed?

  7. I’m already a Ronie and Patricia fan, but Janice and Rachel are new names for me. (This is a GREAT thing. I can’t get enough of this genre!!).
    Janice and Rachel, are these books a great place to start, or would you recommend another of your books to dive into first?
    Ronie, I need this for my collection. I can’t have a signed Tox #1 and not #2! That’s just unnatural ;).
    Patricia, Do I need to read the Novella before starting this series? They’re all on my TBR!

    Thanks for such an awesome giveaway, Rel (and authors!)!

  8. These books all sounds so good! I love suspense novels. I’m reading Ronie’s book now, and it’s so good. I’m in awe of how you all can come up with these plots and make everything come together and seem plausible. I guess my mind is much simpler than yours! LOL

  9. Love all these authors! I always love to ask authors what their favorite snack is when they write?

  10. My question is what are some of the weirdest/creepiest/most interesting facts you’ve uncovered in your research for your novels?

    • Danielle, I did some research on serial killers and read a book about Randy Craft, he lived in Long Beach and was once questioned by an LBPD officer and let go for lack of evidence. When he was finally caught, and the extent of his crimes was discovered, wow. But the story was creepy because he was a sick, sick puppy.

    • How to blow up a car….how to kill someone using insulin…I love research! Thanks for stopping by, Danielle. Love your question.

  11. I would like to ask, have you ever written your own version of a TV, film, or book character into a story?

  12. I would like to ask, have you ever written your own version of a TV, film, or book character into a story?

  13. Oh, I would LOVE to read all of these books! My favorite genre is suspense, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading the authors’ answers to the questions people asked. I’ve edited several Christian suspense books, and I do research on everything they write about. It is extremely eye-opening, and it’s sobering to realize how much of what we read in fiction is tragic reality for so many people. But with fiction, an author can bring about justice and resolution, which we often never get in real life. I believe we all have a God-given sense to right wrongs, bring about justice to the oppressed, and crush evil. I appreciate all of these authors for pouring themselves into giving us the harsh realities of life as well as the resolution we need. It’s also wonderful to read excellent, exciting books that help us escape reality for a while. Thank you all!!

  14. Would love to win all of these books!!! They all sound fabulous

  15. This is an amazing giveaway! Though I may not win this, my list of books to read has gotten longer…Again! 😁 I really enjoy when authors say their characters surprised them in some way, wether it’s through a personal trait, or action, etc. But I’m curious as to how it happens. Do they “write themselves” as you are physically writing or do the character developments come to you in another way?

    • My characters talk to me, and in Justice Delayed, I was writing for one person to be the killer and suddenly another character whispered, “I did it.” And it surprised me. But then it made sense. While I physically write the books, often a twist will pop into my mind and the characters take off in another direction. And it’s always fun when they do that.

    • The idea can take on a life of its own, sometimes going in good directions, sometimes not so good. And sometimes, when inspiration strikes, it can seem as if the book is writing itself, but then comes time to edit and the work starts, It is work, work I love, but fun challenging work nonetheless.

  16. Just bought: Buried Justice and Crisis Shot, and received Deadly Proof to read and review. Now I just need Crown of Souls to add to my TBR pile! Would love to win and donate the duplicates to my church library.

  17. Thank you for this fabulous giveaway! Ladies, what was your favorite moment in your new releases to write? (If you can tell without giving away all the secrets!)

    • My favorite part was when a plot twist came to me! So I won’t spoil it:) I usually come up with ideas as I write as opposed to having it all figured out to begin with. My brain just doesn’t work like that:)

    • Jerusha, in Crisis Shot, Tess has to leave a big city PD for a small, rural PD. SHe is not a country girl, so my favorite part to write was when she finally wins over one of the local cops. It was fun!

    • Jerusha, my favorite was the opening scene with Kelsey getting ready to climb down a 20-story building…or maybe breaking into the Pink Palace…unless it was when Brad and Kelsey played croquet…

  18. Thanks for the chance to win these great titles. My question is – How in the world do you keep coming up with such awesome story lines? :)

  19. Where is your favourite place to write and do you need a quiet space or do you prefer to have music going?

    • Arletta, I have a recliner that I like to write in, with my laptop on my lap, The recliner has great lumbar support. When I’m editing, and I print the whole manuscript out, a coffee shop will do, so will a library. When I’m writing I like noise, radio, music or talk, or TV, something on Netflix I can binge watch. When editing, I need quiet

    • Arletta, I have to be by myself to write the first draft, but I can listen to classical music while I write. But I can be around people when I edit. I don’t think I could ever write in a coffee shop! I’m way too ADHD. Lol

  20. How do you get your ideas for the your storryline? Ronie, why did you feature a deadly plague? All the books sound amazing. Looking forward to reading all of them.

  21. This is a fantastic giveaway with whole lot of suspense! Love it. Thank you for doing the giveaway.

  22. The question I always like to ask is: Why did you choose the genre you write in as opposed to other ones?

    Thanks for a fantastic giveaway Rel and all the authors!!

  23. Hello Ladies! Do you find it difficult to keep continuity in scenes with all those plot twists?

    Thank you for this EPIC giveaway!

  24. Thank you for this fun Q & A and giveaway! I am new to all these wonderful authors. The stories sound fantastic. My question is: Do you start out with an end in mind, or do you just go with the characters and the inspiration where they lead?

  25. Eek! What an exciting list of books to read! I have Crown of Souls and LOVE it!! But these others are on my must read list!
    Author Question-where do you get the inspiration for your novel? Do you know the ending before you start writing, or does it surprise you, too?!
    Keep up the good work–great (Christian) suspense novels are in high demand!! :)

  26. We have your books in the Church Library, except for Rachel’s. I plan to do something about that as soon as Hurricane Irma is gone.

  27. My question is for Ronie Kendig. I find the whole mystery of the mysterious crown artifact extremely intriguing. As you wrote this book, Crown of Souls, was it an easy book to write, as in did all the twists and turns of the characters and story-line just come together easily for you and flow right onto the pages or did it take a lot of work to bring it all together? I’m not a writer and can’t even begin to imagine all the work it takes to bring a story to life. I know some authors say some books they write so strike them that they are easier to write than others. Was that your experience with this book?

  28. Hello! Sorry if this question was already asked, I couldn’t see where anyone had asked it, but what made y’all decide to write suspense? Have you ever wrote something in another genre or considered it?
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. I love mystery/suspense and I appreciate this giveaway. My question is for all of these great authors. You definitely have a talent for writing suspension but do you want to or have you written in other genres? If so, is suspense harder?

  30. Hello ladies! Your books look fantastic. What is your favourite part of the writing process?

  31. Wow, these all look and sound amazing, I can’t wait to read “Justice Buried” and “Crown of Souls”.

    My question for the the authors: what is your favorite drink while writing?

  32. I added more books to my TBR list! These all look so interesting! Thank you for writing Christian suspense, Authors, what types of books (other than suspense) do you like to read? Who are your favorite authors?

  33. Hi Janice! Your newest release looks so interesting! One question I have is: with all the political drama over the incidents of police firing on individuals, what made you decide to write a book surrounding that topic?

    • Danielle, thanks for stopping in. I’m often inspired by what is current. And, I felt like the issue needed to be visited from the officer’s side. First thing you learn on your first call is that there are always two sides.

  34. Thanks for the giveaway chance to win these books! I love to read suspense and my question to the authors is: what led you to write suspense books as opposed to other genres?

  35. My question can be for all the authors. How do you come up with new subject matter or take something and make it new and fresh so exciting that folks can’t put it down? Do the ideas just come to you or do you have to do a lot of research after a glimmer of an idea?

  36. Do you ever get writers block? how do you cure it? What inspires you? Is it real hard to be a writer?
