Book Release – The Red Legion by Max Davine

The Red Legion
By Max Davine

Prohibition is over, closing the lid on half the crime in New York. Wall Street has crashed, opening it up for a whole new breed of criminal to roam the city streets…not that it’s Ineke Valence’s problem anymore. She has long since hung up her revolver, replacing it with a soda bottle, her red scarf with a barmaid’s threads. That is until her old nemesis from the force Sergeant Fielding decides to make it her problem, framing her for a murder and then setting her up to fall hard. Valence moves quickly to bust the case, but when an old associate from her days as a Bandita down in Mexico resurfaces bringing omens of ill for her, and then someone makes the fatal mistake of kidnapping her daughter Elysia. Valence heads to Mexico to retrieve her, the line between Ineke and Angel never so stretched, never so close herself to becoming what she has always feared.

Angel Valence

by

Max Davine

Ineke Valence: Single mother of one. Blond. A drinker in spite of prohibition. Resident of Staten Island.

The Angel of New York: The law’s gun for hire, the one they send when the job gets too risky, a thief, or bodyguard, or murderess… A former spy of the Russian Revolution.

During the last months of the Roaring Twenties, one woman must play both roles. But when her NYPD contacts throw her a job that’s close to home, she finds the lines between the two alter-agos beginning to blur, and her daughter’s life in jeopardy. She travels to the small northern city of Rochester to crack the case before the mob cracks her identity, but what she finds will put her violent, tragic history on a more dangerous collision course with her delicately balanced present than she could ever have imagined.

Angel Valence

Available in Paperback & Kindle.

About The Author

Grew up in Melbourne’s inner eastern suburbs, with the first ten years lived in a house which also accommodated his parents, sister, uncle and grandparents (mother’s side), Davine was always fascinated by the different stories three generations of his Hungarian born family, as well as those of his cousins and family scattered across Europe after the war. Often falling behind in school due to drifting off into the worlds in his mind painted by their fascinating stories, Davine took to his high-school musical productions as a way of mending his shaky academic reputation. Acting and writing became his number one pursuit in the years after.

Blurb of Terra Domina:

Review:
Words seem to come easy for Max Davine in his action packed novel Terra Domina. It is a definite page turner (or press for all you e-readers out there) and is filled with believable characters, addictive plot and authentic dialogue, all the essential ingredients for a fantastic new read!
Terra Domina is the type of in-depth thriller that belongs on the bestsellers stands with a display in the front of the bookstore window. This book should be printed in the millions as it has mass appeal. Think of books by Wilbur Smith, James Patterson, Dean Koontz and Stephen King, mix them all together and you’ll get this book and the upcoming titles by Max Davine, who is some sort of genius!
ASJ Publishers have been the lucky ones to get a hold of this guy. You found it here first, save the date (15/08/2013) I was one of the first to review this wonderful book and surely there will be many many more!

Max is another Melbourne writer oozing with talent. Look out for his next book ‘Angel Valence’ also with ASJ Publishers!

I recommend this book to all fans of good fiction, go out and get a copy today, just so you can say you are not a bandwagon fan in the next few years when his novels are all bestsellers!
5 stars!
