Hi BV, join us at a new Shelfari.com group: Good Reads Café
This is a Readers’ and Writers’ group. Open discussions, debates, critiques and self-promotions…
The group is for all readers and for all good authors. All book genres are welcome. I write thrillers based on true events.
Welcome to the suspense and mystery group. I've been a member for a while and enjoy the way members often send little notes on the books they read or recommend.
When you get a chance, please check out my thriller, "Splattered Blood," it's on the suspense reading shelf.
Thanks for joining the Mystery & Suspense group! Tell us something about you in the Introduce Yourself discussion topic and who are some of your favorite authors in this genre.
Our current book for group discussion is Murder in the Marais by Cara Black. Our next book for discussion in October is Kill and Tell by Linda Howard and hope you will participate.
Lastly, we feature authors each week, proving background info along with their bibliographies. Be sure to check out the author of the week recommendations section and add any you'd like to see included.

Dracula: Hearts of Stone A magical tale of wizards, battle, romance and fangs.
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a new novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
"Madman in the Mirror" is a story about a man - Henry Johnson - who is raised by a psychopath and forced to watch - even as a baby - his father murder people on a regular basis. He is also abused and brainwashed, turning him into a sociopath. Henry stalks and murders people efficiently - he tells himself that he may be a killer, but he doesn't want people to suffer. He is haunted by hallucinations, including a specter in his mirror that talks to him.
“A.J. is a master at creating word images that remain with the reader long after the book is finished.” Richard S. Friedman
