Bones of Ohio
Journalist Samantha Bloodworth travels to a base located at the famous Ohio Range near Discovery Ridge, to cover the work being done by paleontologist Dr. Randall Tikken. While visiting the base, along with her her colleague and friend Dr. Zalmas, Sam discovers that Dr. Tikken has discovered something near Discovery ridge that mysteriously he refuses to talk with her about.
Late at night, Sam sees Dr. Tikken, along with Dr. Zalmas, headed for the base of the ridge and Sam follows them to see if she can learn what this secret discovery is. She is accompanied by one of Tikken’s students, Haruka “Snow” Yukimara and together, they confront Tikken and Zalmas, wanting to know why they are out at the ridge so late at night. Tikken decides that Sam needs to know what this discovery is so she can report the finding to the world. Tikken reveals a cavern that had created at the base of the ridge about 10,000 years ago.
Inside, he shows them carvings in the wall and an authentic pottery shard at least that old, and proclaims that, this is evidence that the survivors of Atlantis were here. The finding is indeed odd, and the shard has been authenticated, however, Tikken’s doctoral student and assistant Mamie Johanssen goes too far to prevent the find being released to the world. Her fear is this is somehow a fake, and, it will ruin Tikken’s professional reputation along with hers by nature of her association with him.

First I couldn't sleep because I could not stop reading and then I could not sleep because I was so spooked by the dark! I particularly enjoyed getting to know the distinctly different characters; part of the suspense is that you really care about what happens to each and every one of them. I have to add, the twist at the end is a real treat.
This is a ravaging, rip-roaring romp through a Bahama's underworld replete with historical horrors and a twist at every turn. You will be turning....tossing and turning with imagery of bright lights and horrifying darkness....and turning page after page because you just can't stop!
Big Ass Shark
MISTY WITLOW, an aspiring actress, heads to the beach near Los Angeles to enjoy the sun and videotape a greeting to send home to her mother. An enormous shark, pale white in color, surfaces in a deep channel near her. The massive beast, larger than a schoolbus, glides past and rams the rocky outcropping she is standing on.
Tossed to the ground, she stares directly into a widening maw big enough to swallow a car.
Terrorized, she scrambles back, away from the exposed jaws containing rows and rows of teeth bigger than her hand. Her camera continued to roll, recording the fish, as its jaws clamped down hard enough on the rocks to shake the ground under her, and, knock one of its teeth loose.
She is the sole witness to a killing machine thought to have been extinct for millions of years - the Charcarocles Megalodon. Misty has proof of the encounter though, in her camera, and a tooth.
This was a rollicking ride of a read. I would read it again. I'm anxious to read the authors other books
