Afternoon, readers. Today on the blog, we have exciting news for book club attendees. From now through June 30, you and your book club have a chance to win an author visit from critically acclaimed writer and veteran trial attorney Randy Singer.

Known for his legal thrillers, Singer writes novels full of the tightly woven conspiracies, engaging characters, and suspenseful drama loved by readers of John Grisham, Michael Connelly, and Lee Child.

He earns his law degree and longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. But when three lawyers from his firm are killed, Landon struggles to keep the firm together, and he can’t help but wonder: Are these deaths related to a shady case from the past, or to the murder trial he’s neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?

Tyndale Fiction’s June Releases – Diverse and Engaging Fiction

Afternoon, readers! Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine as we head forward into the summer season. If you’re looking for a summer read, check out what’s new from Tyndale fiction this June:

Edge-of-Your-Seat Legal Thriller

Are you a fan of suspense thrillers à la John Grisham, Michael Connelly, and Lee Child? Then Randy Singer is definitely worth a look. Randy wears many hats as a veteran trial lawyer, award-winning author, and pastor. His law expertise is evident throughout each legal suspense novel he pens, as well as his innate ability to put you into the courtroom alongside the drama. His most recent novel, Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales, gives readers a look inside a high-profile murder trial, a black-ops military operation, and an intricate conspiracy that’ll have you guessing till the end.

Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a point-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he finds forgiveness and faith. After prison, he earns a law degree and longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for.
Harry McNaughten is one of the founding partners of McNaughten and Clay—and the only attorney willing to take a chance employing an ex-con turned lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry’s ethics and methods, the crusty old lawyer wins Landon’s respect with his brilliant legal mind. But as the two dive into preparing a defense for one of the highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades, Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers are killed when the firm’s private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughten and Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining partner as the final targets.
As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can’t help but wonder: Is the plot related to a shady case from McNaughten and Clay’s past, or to the murder trial he’s neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?

A Trip through Ellis Island

The early 1900s was a time of great change for the United States. The American dream was ripe for the picking as many emigrants made the harrowing trip overseas for their chance at a better tomorrow. Grace’s Pictures follows Grace McCaffery, a young Irish woman hoping for a new life in New York City. This is a novel for historical fiction readers as well as those intrigued with the burgeoning technology of a pivotal era in American history. The Brownie camera, one of the first affordable personal cameras of the time, plays a pivotal role in Grace’s life as an ill-taken photo of a dangerous gangster endangers her and everyone she holds dear.

Grace McCaffery hopes that the bustling streets of New York will hold all the promise that the lush hills of Ireland did not. As her efforts to earn enough money to bring her mother to America fail, she wonders if her new Brownie camera could be the answer. But a casual stroll through a beautiful New York City park turns into a hostile run-in with local gangsters, who are convinced her camera holds the first and only photos of their elusive leader. A policeman with a personal commitment to help those less fortunate finds Grace attractive and longs to help her, but Grace believes such men cannot be trusted. Spread thin between her quest to rescue her mother, do well in a new nanny job, and avoid the gang intent on intimidating her, Grace must put her faith in unlikely sources to learn the true meaning of courage and forgiveness.

Thoughts on Grace’s Pictures:

“Thomson has penned a delightful story of overcoming obstacles. Lynn Austin fans will savor this historical series debut.”
