One hundred inmates hold twelve guards hostage in the laundry dorm of The Indiana Penal Farm. Emergency squads are massed along the fence, awaiting the order to attack, while sharpshooters are perched like crows on top of the administrative building. Tom Hemmings, a dorm counselor, has been drafted to defuse the standoff. But the inmates are divided into rival gangs, the guards into feuding unions. And the prison administration has sparked the standoff by forcing cut-rate services upon the facility. As he enters the prison, Tom's heart starts to hammer. Who are the good guys? Who are the bad? And how will this nightmare end? John M. Gist, Founding Editor, Red Savina Review, states, "The Siege is a Freudian descent into the moral ambiguity inherent in modern institutions. When it comes, as it must, the violence is as tangible and absurd as certain scenes in Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian. An excellent debut from a writer on the rise."

An in-law-averse bartender finds a heroic purpose for her skill at hallucinating while listening to neo-psych rock during her sessions alone in complete darkness in Addie's Float, which is an isolation tank that brings comfort to the Indiana town. When the comfort turns to scandal, the mysteries and threats tear down a young surveyor named Austin, who sees three strangely narrow men turning up in the oddest places. The small town is falling apart due to local corruption. Can indie music save it? Beware that it could trigger people who are sensitive about questionable touch from anonymous strangers: the woman floating in the tank suddenly realizes someone is in there with her, petting her hair. When the man runs away naked into the night, Flair risks covering for him. Steamy sexy with some "language." The sexuality is loving and mystical yet the beginning contact is edgy. Dual 3rd Person POV set up like a Romantic Suspense, though it's also Psychological Suspense -- rather than the usual Navy SEAL or bodyguard who strongly protects the woman, this male lead is worried about losing his mind. The main characters are 24 and 25 and they're interested in finishing college and internship. I hope it interests New Adults but it's more complex than most and delves into ideas like Carl Jung's collective unconscious/telepathy.

When the victim is identified as Sam Andie, a young African American man, Ngaire must investigate whether racial motives were behind the death.

With files missing, memories hazy, and a strident false confession muddying the waters, Ngaire must sift through the detritus if she hopes to find the truth hiding deep beneath the lies.
