Colton Lang cover.jpg

Colton Lang used to be a contender. Now he’s a private detective providing occasional muscle for his old manager, a gambler, who owns a boxing gym he used to train in. He’s hired by a Mexican cleaning lady to find her missing daughter. Her late husband was a huge fan of his before he retired from boxing. His investigation leads him into the criminal underworld of Los Angeles where he uncovers a criminal alliance that threatens not only his own life but the lives of his ex-wife and son.

Before all is done, the skills he honed in the ring are brought to bear and even then he must dig deeper into his body and soul to come up with the last ounce of strength and devotion that’s needed to save the lives of those who are the most precious to him.

Colton Lang is a 1980s action crime thriller that takes us into the worlds of illegal gambling, the Mexican Mafia, the Yakuza and MS-13.

5 Stars

As soon as you crack open the cover, this book becomes a page-turner. Hard to put down. I read it over a 5-hour period between tea, breaks, and other stuff. Lots of fast-paced action if that is a primary concern.
Colton is a former boxer who becomes a private investigator. The storyline involves Three separate cases which ultimately lead to a big mob boss. This crime lord attempts to hire Colton to *off* another rival mobster. What happens then? Well, you should read the book to find out. Colton's investigations take him from Los Angeles to Seattle to the state of North Carolina.
The ending is well played and satisfying. You'll like it, guaranteed. I really liked this Colton character enough to want to sit down in a bar and have a drink with him. The character was well fleshed out and sympathetic as well. 5 stars for storyline, action, and character. This Kindle edition was organized well and very readable. Bravo to the author.

“…an action-driven story… fans of action-oriented crime novels will find things to like. The stakes for the private eye remain high throughout…”

5 Stars

“This fast paced thriller follows a traveling nurse, William Moreau, as he hip-hops across the country, assisting difficult patients that need his specialized skills. But trouble seems to follow him and he’s called on to use skills other than his medical training. But while he’s helping others, a crazed couple from his past is keeping tabs on those he cares for. They plan on hurting them to hurt William.
The story becomes a real cat-and-mouse chase where one misstep can lead to the deaths of everyone he cares for.
An exciting ride that pulls the reader into a harrowing reality of what would you do?”

Welles Lang's Magic Box Cover_edited-1.j

Following him across the cavernous expanse of the underground auditorium, they marveled at the sheer size of the space and sat in the seats while Welles continued to the console.

“Behold,” he said as he loaded the sack of Constantinople into the auditorium. The three actors were slack-jawed as they were drawn down a cobblestone alleyway in three dimensions that looked as though they could walk through it. Silhouetting the skyline was a crimson glow that could only come from fire and flame. The alley spilled into a main thoroughfare that was filled with soldiers chasing men and women down, running them through and slitting the throats of others while pulling the clothes off of some of the women who were screaming hysterically while being raped by Ottoman soldiers in the middle of the street while houses burned out of control, the flames reflecting from the rocks in the street, lighting up the faces of all.

“Moore has created an entrancing cautionary tale of what happens when technology outpaces society’s ethical boundaries for it.”

— Kirkus Reviews 2/22/19

“Overall, this was a whirlwind of a story that intrigues and shocks: a good mix of old-fashioned cinema noir and futuristic horror.”

—Judge, 8th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards.

5 Stars

This is the most fun I have had reading a sci-fi book in I don't know how long. It has everything. Hollywood, murders, madness, living” avatars and more. It didn't produce any true belly laughs for me, but still there was so much humor in the story. Moore takes everything a couple steps farther, taking the characters over the edge. Very enjoyable read.”

First in a 6-book genre mashup series featuring cops, criminals, and a vampire vigilante.

I have a code I live by. I might be a monster, but if I limit myself to committing monstrous acts only on those who perpetrate evil, in a way I serve the living in society. At least that’s what I tell myself. I mean society hasn’t been able to find the will to kill Richard Ramirez, or Charles Manson. Leave it to me to take out the trash. I was always good at rationalizing my shrink once told me. I’ve even developed a lucrative internet business that serves a dual purpose: protecting innocents while finding scumbags to satiate my unholy compulsions.

From Falco the Dark Angel

5 Stars — Brenda, Inkitt — 1/5/2021

“Thoroughly enjoyed it. Knowledge of weapons, vampires, demons, even the drug world is amazing. The best is that there is hope... The Dark Angel. Good always triumphs over evil. There's always a way out. Well done. Brilliant story. Can't find enough words that truly describes the gist of your story. Thank you.”
