For readers of Harlan Coben and Robert Crais, Robert McClure’s rollicking crime novel of family and felony takes readers on a relentless thrill ride through the L.A. underworld.

Fresh off a nine-year stint in San Quentin, career hitman Babe Crucci plans to finally go straight and enjoy all life has to offer—after he pulls one or two more jobs to shore up his retirement fund. More than anything, Babe is dead set on making up for lost time with his estranged son, Leo, who just so happens to be a rising star in the LAPD.

The road to reconciliation starts with tickets to a Dodgers game. But first, Leo needs a little help settling a beef over some gambling debts owed to a local mobster. This kind of thing is child’s play for Babe–until a sudden twist in the negotiations leads to a string of corpses and a titanic power shift in gangland politics. With the sins of his father piling up and dragging him down, Leo throws himself into the investigation of a young prostitute’s murder, a case that makes him some unlikely friends—and some brutally unpredictable enemies.

Caught up in a clash of crime lords, weaving past thugs with flamethrowers who expend lives like pocket change, Babe and Leo have one last chance to face the ghosts of their past—if they want to live long enough to see their future.






I received this book through NETGALLEY  from the book PUBLISHER  ABILI. In exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’ very honest opinion of the author- ROBERT MCCLURE’S – DEADLY LULLABY

Mismouey has never read any books that Mr. Mcclure has written before. But I do love a good crime thriller. And boy did this one sound like it!. The way in which the author wrote the bio for the book-he had me hooked. And I do mean it – picture it a mouse going for cheese (hehe).
The way in which he takes pen to paper to create such a DRAMATIC -COMPELLING- EDGE OF YOUR SEAT/PAGE TURNER! Is truly GENIUS!  From the very first page -he hold you captive. You have this DESIRE-NEED-WANT -CRAVING to keep reading till the end. As you HAVE to know what happens next. You will find yourself being pulled into the book deeper and  deeper till the end.

DEADLY LULLABY  is about a LAPD Police Detective by the name of Leo Crucci. He goes by the name of Crooch. As our  story opens Crooch just found out his father is now out from the pen- Babe. Babe has done 7 years for a crime.   He still has connections with his mobster friends.  Even though he wants to get out of the business. As for his son Crooch – he has a gambling problem.

Babe gets asked to do a job and bring his son Crooch and Chief along to help him out with it. They are to take out Mackey. Which Babe does not tell his son about – he lets him think he wants get Mackey to help him out. So they go to Mackey place for a convo. Instead when they are alone Babe breaks his neck. Crooch is a witness to the murder. Now he is on the payroll for Joe Sacci. Well actually for his father- but Sacci ordered the hit.

Mackey goes missing along with his crew. His niece  (Levitch) is looking for him for him -Mackey. she goes to The Venetian Social Club looking to collect the money Crooch owes along with info on where her uncle is. It doesn’t work – as he get’s the best of her and Latzo. Later when Crooch was off duty he got a call from his commander called him. Told him that he was needed at a scene of a dead body. All other available men where downtown on a scene on a torch job.

Crooch didn’t think nothing of it. He wasn’t expecting to be on duty as it was his off day. o he had a few drinks. Crooch drives to the scene- he finds a young  Asian girl probably Cambodian dead. She had been strangled. Her age is approximately 18 or 19. There is no ID on her and no one knows who she is. The caller stated that a big black dude had taken off from inside the bushes and ran like crazy  towards  Wilshire. With a purse in his hand. All the officers on the scene with him are out chasing down the suspect and asking if anyone saw anything.

They catch the suspect -his name is Taquan Oliver. Crooch interviews him- and Oliver is throwing off classic signs that he killed her. Oliver gives his statement but he also states he was stoned . He says he say a short fat guy with her. But Crooch doesn’t believe him.

Oliver is placed in jail- he has 2 other bunkies in his cell. During the night he hangs himself. No one saw anything – and the guards on duty didn’t think he was a risk for suicide. Hmm sounds fishy to me ….

Now as for our victim- we learn her name. She is Sonita Khemra- she has been living with her uncle Khang Nhou as her mother Phath Khemra could not control her. She thought that her brother could. He owns KN Imports it is also rumored that he is into drugs.

While our Detective is trying to solve the murder of Sonita- he is also doing his best to stay away from his father Babe.Not only that but Crooch and his father have issue between themselves.  Does that work out for him? what actually happens with Sonita’s case? Who did murder her? Will Crooch be able to stay away from Babe and the mobsters? Does he keep his job?  Are father and son able to finally let the past rest and start picking up the pieces?

But, as heir to the most influential Dynasty on Tararia, only a stifled life of business and politics awaits him within the confines of his family’s estate. Determined to be true to himself and explore the potential of his abilities, Cris leaves Tararia to begin a new life touring the stars.

When Cris unexpectedly receives an invitation to join the Tararian Selective Service (TSS), the only organization to offer an official telekinesis training program, a new future awaits. It’s his dream opportunity to be among people like himself, free from the Priesthood and political objectives. Except, Cris’ path was designed, and he’s right where the Priesthood wants him.

They became friends and he taught her how to plot and gave her approval of the original outline and sample chapter for “Marquel” shortly before he died in 1989.

After Whittington passed away, Emily challenged herself to write as her mentor did and wrote a chapter a day and finished the novel “Marquel” in 52 days. For more details on the novel’s history read: http://www.thefilmmom.blogspot.com/2012/10/why-book-trailer-now.html

Fast forward, a second daughter, Blair is born and Emily and husband Tom focus on raising their family. Both daughters are now grown and work in Hollywood. So this might be an example of art imitating life or the reverse?

Unhinged, Kittery Serials
By: Cat Mason
Release Date: October 13, 2015
Tour Host: DRC Promotions


Growing up, Ainsley Carter always felt different from her parents. While they embraced their financial status, she never liked how it set her apart from others in their small town. It was always obvious to her what money did to people, how it had the power to change things. Most of all, she hated what it took from her.
Her heart.

Back in Kittery, Maine, for the first time in over four years, she is instantly bombarded with plans that her parents have made for her life. Expensive clothes, the perfect man ready to marry her, the life of privilege.
Or is it?

Memories flood back and, as if conjured from her dreams, there he is, the man who has owned her body and soul since she was a kid. Adam James, the man who has haunted her every day since he broke her.

Adam is the complete opposite of everything Ainsley is told she should want. The hard working roofer rides a Harley, his clothes are ripped and faded, and he wouldn’t be caught dead walking into the country club her father helped build. After breaking it off with Ainsley, he’s bitter. He despises everything about the way Ainsley and her family use money to make problems go away.

Years later, can fire still be simmering beneath the broken hearts and resentment? Secrets never stay buried, but can Adam and Ainsley handle the truth?
