February 2018 Newsletter

February has brought spring! Temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s in the North and 70s and 80s in the South. But also a strange one-day snowstorm in the North followed immediately by spring-like weather. We now have hope for an early spring. But for now let’s just enjoy the interlude.

February also brought the launch of The Innocents by David Putnam. This is the fifth Bruno Johnson novel and a prequel—looking at Bruno’s entry into the police force, and fatherhood. Readers of the Johnson series will enjoy reading of the trials and tribulations that made Bruno what he now is—ex-cop, ex-con, parent, and rescuer of abused children. This book was released in both hardcover and paperback simultaneously—and, of course, as an ebook.

February also saw the release of a Knight and Devlin ebook collection from author John F. Dobbyn. Fans of this legal pair will love this five-book collection.

And then there was the paperback release of Aftershock by popular author Philip Donlay. This is the fifth in Donlay’s series of thrillers featuring Donovan Nash and his EcoWatch team, and the explosive tale turns up the heat with a volcanic threat in Guatemala. A terrific story from a master of the genre.

In March, Oceanview will release Philip Donlay’s Speed the Dawn. This is the eighth book in the series and eco-hero Donovan Nash gains popularity with each book. A great writer and a great character certainly result in a great read. Do not miss this one.

Also in March, Oceanvlew will release the paperback version of Gumshoe for Two by Rob Leininger. You have got to love P.I. In training (still?) Mortimer Angel. Humor and disaster are strange bedfellows in this second Angel novel.

Two other bits of news from Oceanview: Seven Suspects by Renee James was a Top 12 pick in the Over The Rainbow Books Section by the American Library Association, and David Putnam was the “Picture of the Day” in Publishers Weekly as one half of a duo speaking about crime and the law.
