Crime Wave Press now accepts True Crime manuscripts and crime fiction novellas of more than 10.000 words.
The third Father Ananda Mystery, Killer Karma, is published in late May as a Kindle ebook. A paperback is to come out soon as well. Meanwhile, the creator of the series, author Nick Wilgus is working on a fourth installment featuring the Buddhist monk and sleuth as he travels into Thailand's criminal back waters.
The author of Gaijin Cowgirl, Jame DiBiasio is on a virtual book tour in June.
Gaijin Cowgirl by Jame DiBiasio is a high octane adventure introducing Val Benson, flaky Tokyo hostess and utterly unreliable protagonist who stumbles across a map to one of the greatest treasures lost in World War II.
With yakuza, motor cycle gangs, rogue CIA, treasure hunters, pimps, Thai boxers and her Congressman father hot on her trail, Val burns a trail of death and destruction across Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Burmese borderlands to get her delicate hands on the loot before someone less deserving does.
A nun is torn apart by crocodiles in a Buddhist theme park. Is it a case of suicide or does a monastic community in the Thai provinces harbor a vicious killer? Father Ananda, Buddhist monk and reluctant detective is called from Bangkok to untangle an insidious web of vested interests, corruption and murder in the second episode of the Father Ananda mystery series.
Sister Suicide by Nick Wilgus - the fifth release from Crime Wave Press is out now as paperback and Kindle ebook!!!
"Wilgus ... has a good fix on temple boys, the precepts of Buddhism, the jaundiced eye with which the populace regards the constulabary, the vendors, the weather, the air pollution."

Review: "Dead Sea"
"...Dead Sea is full of beer, Balut (the boiled, fertilised eggs that are a Filipino specialty), karaoke and interesting local characters. The Philippines is an Asian country I’ve long thought has been neglected as a setting for crime fiction."
