Past events cast shadows you can’t outrun. Wayne and Phil knew that better
than anyone, after what happened when they were children, bullied by
Wayne’s murderous brother. When Tyrone returns after many years, bent
on revenge, they are about to be drawn back into his dangerous world

Breaking Waves is a crime thriller set in a fictional seaside town in the
North of England. It is Book 1 in the Phil Tyler Thriller series. The
narrator, Phil Tyler, is a journalist on a local free sheet newspaper and he
tells the story in the first person present tense. Poor Phil is not an
heroic tough-guy type of protagonist; he has an antipathy to violence,
blood-shed and pain – especially his own. But he has a strong sense of right
and wrong and, even when faced with danger and the threat of death, he
cannot help but continue his pursuit of justice. He is very loyal,
especially where his friend are concerned. The novel moves between traumatic
childhood events, which involved him and his friends, and their consequences
in adult life. It is a tense, suspense-filled narrative but there is a lot
of humour in the book too, which occurs as he reflects upon the gap between
his natural antipathy to conflict and the menacing events he is caught up
in.

Dayton, Ohio 1986, Sean Mitchell finds himself in a gut-wrenching dilemma,
‘Trust the legal system or trust the fact that – they
ain’t lookin for us? We shut up, we’re safe, we start blabbing,
who knows what the lawyers and legal system will do to us?

Sean’s world is turned upside down when he discovers a shocking life
truth – sometimes telling the truth is the wrong thing to do.

Sean Mitchell is on a summer engineering work study program at the Flight
Dynamics Laboratory, Wright-Patterson, AFB. Taking a term off from his
‘stressed out’ aerospace engineering studies at Ohio State,
Sean’s new home in Dayton is a hotel right next door to a fancy,
gorgeous-lady-filled, nightclub.

What could go wrong?

Everything.

Sean’s life of ‘working out at the gym’ and
‘meeting pretty ladies at the nightclub,’ took a nosedive one
night. His world changed. He entered the ‘secret’ world. The
world of people with a secret, people who know something they’re not
supposed to know; something they don’t want to know, but too bad, no
going back.

About the Author

H.E. Joyce

H.E. Joyce has been interested in writing since he was a young boy.

But it wasn’t until he retired after 20 years in the fire service
that he decided to pick up the proverbial pen in earnest.

“I thought, ‘Well, this is an ideal time to take it
up,’” Joyce said.

He has always enjoyed reading thrillers, so he decided to try his hand at
the genre. The latest product of his proverbial pen is Death is 27 Red, the
finale of a three-book series dubbed The Frank Doyle Reports, which was
released at the end of February. The first entry, The Deadliest Game, came
out in 2014, and is set in Maine. The second book, Alternative to Murder,
was released in April of 2021, and – like the third installment
– is set in Boston.

About the Author

Rafael Amadeus Hines

Rafael Amadeus Hines is a native New Yorker with Panamanian, Jamaican, and Irish roots, who was born and raised on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Dipping into his early Alphabet City memories, he loosely based many of the characters in his first novel, Bishop’s War, on the gangsters, cops, and combat veterans he grew up with, and adapted many of his own experiences into the book as well.

Rafael is a former Jazz club owner and restaurateur, and has worked in the financial and energy markets for over twenty years. On 9/11 he watched his office along with all the others in the Twin Towers come crashing down and, like many New Yorkers on that day, he anticipated follow up attacks to take place throughout the city. Years later he envisioned a lone citizen soldier preventing these attacks and the hero Sgt. John Bishop appeared on paper.

Rafael is the father of three and still lives in the New York neighborhood where he grew up. A voracious reader of suspense thrillers, his writing career was inspired by legendary artist-authors Elmore Leonard, Vince Flynn, John Sandford, Stephen Hunter, Walter Mosley, James Lee Burke, and Tom Clancy. He is currently working on the third novel in the Bishop series.
