    Michael Pronko

    eBook (Raked Gravel Press, May 31, 2017)
    Winner 2018 Shelf Unbound Best Independently Published Book Winner 2017 Book Excellence Awards Best MysterySolo Medalist Winner 2017 New Apple Awards for Excellence Detective Hiroshi Shimizu investigates white collar crime in Tokyo. When an American businessman turns up dead, his mentor Takamatsu calls him out to the site of a grisly murder. A glimpse from a security camera video suggests the killer might be a woman. Hiroshi quickly learns how close homicide and suicide can appear in a city full of high-speed trains just a step—or a push—away. Takamatsu drags Hiroshi out to the hostess clubs and skyscraper offices of Tokyo in search of the killer. Hiroshi goes deeper and deeper into Tokyo’s intricate, perilous market for buying and selling the most expensive land in the world. He teams up with ex-sumo wrestler Sakaguchi to scour Tokyo’s sacred temples, corporate offices and industrial wastelands to find out why one woman was driven to murder. After years in America and lost in neat, clean spreadsheets, Hiroshi confronts the stark realities of the biggest city in the world, where inside information can travel in a flash from the insiders at top investment firms to street-level punks and teenage hostesses, everyone scrambling for their cut of Tokyo’s lucrative land deals. Hiroshi’s determined to cut through Japan’s ambiguities—and dangers—to find the murdering ex-hostess before she extracts her final revenge—which just might be him. More at: www.michaelpronko.com

  • Traci the Train

    Ken Bossone, Angel Heaven Lee, Nobility Books

    Audible Audiobook (Nobility Books, Nov. 16, 2015)
    Meet Traci the Train! A friendly, positive and loveable locomotive steam engine! Through the years, she's served the tracks of West Cheddar well, carrying children from one place to another while always putting smiles on everyone's faces. Traci is the nicest and kindest steam engine there is, but not everything is going poor Traci's way. The newer and shinier trains are becoming popular and are being used more. Those trains are both faster and bigger, meaning that there isn't much room left for poor old Traci anymore. However, Traci is strong, and even though a lot of the old steam engines are starting to be used for scrap metal, she is able to stay positive and remain happy with the help of your child and her other friends. A young passenger (your child) doesn't give up on Traci and gives her the support and encouragement she needs. One day one of the bigger, newer, shinier trains takes a tumble on the tracks and needs some help. But none of the bigger trains can reach him because they're just too big themselves. So the question is...Who can reach the stranded train and save the day? If only there was a positive, friendly, smaller, lovable locomotive. Oh wait, there is!
