Closed Doors, a Trilogy

Muppets Take Manhattan - Random House This debut collection brings together stories that will appeal to many, both the thrill seekers and those who enjoy clean, unpretentious prose and impeccable story telling. Each story resonates in a fresh, yet well-honed voice and are connected by generations of the Wells Family. These stories take the reader on a journey of discovery and a glimpse into human nature, which goes beyond location, or time. Written in a descriptive and well-crafted narrative, it is close to impossible to put the book down before finishing each story which, in my opinion, is a journey which is well-worth taking.

���Toxic Situations, A Novella���, is a fast-paced thriller that leads the reader from Atlanta to Australia on the hunt for stolen capsules containing a deadly avian flu virus. We follow the adventures of CDC agent Craig Wells Jr. as he and his partner travel the globe battling warring organized crime figures that are determined to sell them to the highest bidder or unleash the deadly virus.

In ���Family Secrets���, the reader is invited to a family gathering where the stage is set for an unfolding tragedy and the discovery of the horrid truth about the secrets hidden by seemingly happy families.

In the final story of the trilogy, ���Thrills at the Esplanade Cinema���, a unique tale unfolds. What begins as an innocent daily occurrence has the potential to become a life-ending event that stays with the protagonist.

After reading Rich Weatherly���s ���Closed Doors: a Trilogy���, I am convinced that he is an extremely talented writer who has some fascinating stories to tell. His ability to craft interesting characters and intrigue you with compelling plots while maintaining such a high standard of writing throughout, is brilliant and the mark of a true storyteller. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and cannot wait to read his future work; he definitely has a fan in me.

Black Loon Lake

Black Loon Lake - S.L. Coelho I thoroughly enjoyed S. Coelho's novella ���Black Loon Lake���. Black Loon Lake is a well-written, page-turning thriller that frankly, I couldn���t put down! S. Coelho captures your interest from the very beginning. You're pulled right into the action and feel the characters��� fear and tension as they traverse through a very cleverly crafted and intriguing plot. There is never any down time in Black Loon Lake; you are constantly engaged, wanting to know what's going to happen. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and if you are like me, you will be leery of ever camping again. I am looking forward to reading more of her work in the future. S.Coelho is definitely an author to watch for!
