AMACAT by Charles Bowie
Second in the Donovan: Thief For Hire thriller series, Sean Donovan is embroiled in a triplet of trouble.
His sister’s newly ex-boyfriend, an obsessed art collector, dumped an ugly, but valuable fish mask in her lap. A mask being hunted by a lethal insurance agent.
Beth McLean, barely an acquaintance from London, is being framed. She reaches out to the only person she believes can help clear her name. Who at the Canadian embassy is behind this treachery?
Or is it all connected to his nemesis, Gaia? And did the multimillionaire art dealer order the murder of Donovan’s ex-girlfriend as the ultimate payback?
All this falls into Donovan’s lap, and he still cannot stop himself from a small side trip to find a stolen cask of the last great batch of Provençal pinot noir wine. Too much baggage? Read A Mask, A Cask and A Task: AMACAT.
Review by Rochelle:
I love to travel, and Sean Donovan travels a lot. I always cry on take-off when I fly from the sheer joy of taking to the air—and again on landing from the disappointment of being back on the ground. I am sooooo jealous of Sean! At least I get to fly vicariously through him, and travel the rivers of France aboard luxury cruise ships. Although, if I ever get to travel that way, I could do without the danger and intrigue he is fleeing. But as fiction it’s darned fun to read.
And, oh yeah—even though we know who did it, Mr. Bowie keeps us guessing just who hired the thugs and the reason why. I thought I knew, but I was wrong. That rarely happens! Kudos, Mr. Bowie!

You’ll notice we always include the publisher’s buy link. That’s because authors usually receive about 40-50% of the book price from the publisher. Editors and cover artists usually receive about 5-10%. When you buy a book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or another third-party vendor, they take a hefty cut and the author, editors and cover artists receive their royalties from what is left. So, if a book costs $5.99 at E-BookPublisher.com and you buy from there, the author will receive about $2.40. If you buy the book at Amazon, the author will receive about $0.83.
Downloading the file from your computer to your e-reader is as easy as transferring any file from a USB flash drive to your computer. You can download your books onto your computer using “Save As” to a “Books” folder you create and sort them into sub-folders by genre, author, or however you wish before transferring them to your e-reader.
