As a publisher, as small as One Eye Press might be, I want to have a comfortable separation between the personal and the professional. But when you ride in a one-man boat the slightest storm is a potential to capsize. While, it wasn’t perfect storm, both personal and professional issues have capsized the boat. It has been an extremely hectic summer which has caused challenges with my health as I moved into the Fall. So to get on an even keel personally, health-wise, I am pushing previously scheduled One Eye Press releases three months into 2016.
Starting with GOLDFINCHES by Ryan Sayles, which will have a January 26th release.
Family man Carl, with his wife and daughter, are on their way check on his young son who had been hospitalized for an ear infection complicated by the boy’s Type 1 Diabetes. Stopped at a light they are confronted by a gunman who pulls Carl from the vehicle, stealing the vehicle and his family with it.
Desperate, Carl, will do anything to save his family, even commit a carjacking himself. Carl finds himself chasing after his family, being chased by the police, and confront the reason for this random act of violence.
When all seems lost, Carl finds a reason to believe, and finds himself amidst a conflict of good and evil.
About Ryan Sayles
Eddie Pax is a special kind of repo man: he recovers “wet money” — assets that have been stolen from one of the largest criminal syndicates in North America. The job is often grim because when Eddie closes an account, he also kills the thieves.
But when his boss sends him out to recover five million dollars’ worth of bearer bonds two crooks hot-fingered from a vault in New York, Eddie gets a rare opportunity to mix business and pleasure: one of the thieves is a man who shot Pax during a jewelry heist in Southern California a dozen years earlier. Eddie’s recovery will give him a chance to even the score.
Unfortunately, the securities Pax are supposed to recover have been hidden and the bodies of the thieves who stole it are piling up like cordwood. The cops have their eyes on Eddie, as does a woman who is hoping to grab her share of the loot. And the man who shot Pax knows his former partner is on his trail.
