Blood Land

Summary

Crime's an ugly constant in the big city. L.A. Chicago. New York. But when a savage murder brutalizes a small town and neighbor turns on neighbor, a tough-as-nails cop is essential to restoring order. Blood Land is a gritty, emotional saga set in the Wyoming badlands with both greed and vengeance at its core. When billions of dollars in natural gas rights hang in the balance and the town's top law officer's wife is slain by her own blood, a reluctant hero is forced to battle his own demons and ultimately choose between justice, revenge, and duty. In the tradition of Dennis Lehane, Tony Hillerman, and James Lee Burke, Guthrie's sparse, haunting storytelling compliments his talent for creating richly-drawn, unflinching law officers with human frailties and a sense of justice.

As the political pressure mounts and bodies pile up, John discovers an old enemy protecting the incubus: the Fist of God, a group that believes all paranormals are evil.

Summary

Some stones are better left unturned.... John Starkweather feels restless. Though still technically an agent for SPECTR, his only job now seems to be hanging out with his boyfriends, Caleb and the vampire spirit Gray, and binge-watching TV in their New Orleans apartment. The inactivity comes to an abrupt end when a rougarou attacks John’s estranged grandfather. Even though he hasn’t seen his family since he was a teen, John can’t pass up the opportunity to reconnect. The more John investigates the attack, the stranger everything about it seems, from his parents’ odd behavior to the rougarou’s unnatural size. And the closer John comes to finding answers, the nearer he draws to a truth that might be better left uncovered.

Money Land

Summary

Money Land is the sequel to the best-selling and riveting Blood Land, which introduced the Sheriff James Pruett mystery/thriller series. Big crime has come literally crashing down on the small town of Wind River, Wyoming. When a small plane bound for the Canadian border, and carrying money for the Sustantivo Cartel, smashes into the glacial Wind River Mountains, the event brings a heartless evil presence to one of the more remote places on Earth. The tail of the plane is discovered, empty: No drugs, no money. Shortly afterward, people start dying. When the cartel comes to town, Pruett will do anything within his power to save his town, his people, the land, and his family. Anything. Once again in the sparse, gritty, starkly poetic styling of James Lee Burke, Tony Hillerman, and John D. MacDonald, R.S. Guthrie brings you his classic hero at odds against the drug cartel, his own friends and citizens, and federal agencies that begin to sniff out a chance to attack an international crime organization.

Unfortunately, his only allies belong to an extremist group who would kill Caleb if they found out about his talent. Gray is a wandering spirit, summoned to hunt and destroy demons by drinking their blood. This hunt goes horribly wrong, and for the first time in his existence Gray is trapped in a living, human body. Caleb's body - and Caleb is still in it.

For Gray is a drakul: a vampire. Having spent his life avoiding the government as an unregistered 'mal, Caleb can't let himself trust a federal exorcist, no matter how sexy.

Can Caleb keep Gray under control, as the drakul experiences the temptation of a living body for the first time? Because if he fails and Gray gives in to bloodlust, Starkweather will have no choice but to kill them both.

Breaker of Chains

Summary

Big changes are afoot at SPECTR. John Starkweather, once a hotshot field agent, is now benched. Instead of chasing down demons during Charleston's biggest outbreak, he's stuck interviewing exorcists about a previous case. But what at first seems like a busywork assignment takes a darker turn, as John begins to suspect the increase in possessions might not be coincidence but part of an unseen conspiracy. The vampire spirit, Gray, was made to hunt demons and drink their blood. He and his human host, Caleb Jansen, ought to be at the forefront of SPECTR's field team. But their new partners refuse to let Gray use any of his abilities, let alone actually hunt and fight. Fortunately, Caleb and Gray have allies outside of SPECTR: the only other living drakul, Drugoy, and his host, Yuri Azarov. Yuri and Dru live by no mortal's rules, and they can show Caleb and Gray how to do the same...depending on how far they're willing to go. Because breaking the rules comes with a cost, and the price of Caleb and Gray's freedom may be the life of the man they love.

Master of Ghouls

Summary

Caleb Jansen's old life is in ruins after being possessed by the vampire spirit Gray. Now all Caleb wants is for Gray to be exorcised so he can adjust to living as a registered paranormal. Instead, District Chief Kaniyar of SPECTR offers him a new choice: be locked away for public safety, or come work for the very agency he's spent years trying to avoid. The only good thing to come from Caleb's possession is his relationship with federal exorcist John Starkweather, but even that seems doomed to end before it can really begin. John's newest case is a nightmare: someone is summoning demons and forcing them to possess women and boys snatched from the streets of Charleston. If his team can't find the summoner soon enough, the possessions will become permanent, transforming the victims into ghouls. To make matters worse, he barely prevents Gray from feeding on their only lead. Can John shield his heart from Caleb, who only seems interested in a temporary hook-up? Can Caleb keep Gray under control while they hunt for the summoner? Or will the cost of solving the case be higher than any of them could have guessed? Because the master of ghouls has set his sights on a new target: Gray.

Reflections on Oceans and Puddles

Summary

Where can we find a wellspring of inspiration to raise us from our doldrums, rekindle our enthusiasm about everyday events, and encourage us to explore untested possibilities? Maybe we can find it in familiar places: within ideas and examples of people we know that illuminate higher values to aspire to; among simple interests and pleasures that we take for granted and never fully recognize; and connected to unresolved problems that cry out for innovative solutions. Being motivated fundamentally involves caring enough about someone or something to influence our course of thought and action. There are occasions when its source may come from a realization that the path that we are on is unacceptable, and we must change it, even if we’re not certain where to go. In Reflections on Oceans and Puddles, author and educator Larry Bell summarizes a lifetime of learning to create a marvelous guide for the open-minded, young and old.
