In The Spotlight: The Stash

A stash of stolen cash buried deep within a national park sets a thief, a park ranger, and three slackers on a collision course.

Another Indies United strong pack of thriller writers, Benjamin Bradley delivers the goods in The Stash!

Let’s take a closer look at what this YA Thriller has in store for readers:

Dean Nelson had every detail of his heist planned to perfection. He’d made a flawless getaway and was patiently waiting for the right moment to dig up the money that was buried late in the night without any witnesses. Or at least any witnesses that he knew of.

Katie’s life as a park ranger is centered around one mission: protect the park. On most days the threats are nothing more than off-leash dogs and illegal campfires but one night she realizes something is afoot. Somebody has been digging in her park.

Cooper and his friends are always outrunning the police on their harmless adventures into the unknown. One night, they ended up in the right place at the right time and stumbled upon a clue that could leave them rich beyond their wildest dreams. They just have to find the treasure before somebody catches up to them.

As the three forces collide, can Cooper make it out with the cash in hand or will it cost him more than he bargained for? Is the cash worth their lives?

The Reviews Are In!

What I liked most about this book is how it transferred me to the past when I was younger exploring and getting in trouble.
It also gave me the feeling in the beginning that I was about to read something out of R.L. Stine’s world…

E.L. Bean, Author

While the author has labeled this a YA book, it could easily hold its own against adult thrillers…I would gladly suggest this book for anyone in high school and up to age 102!

Literary Titan Book Awards July 2022

Death at Dusbar College won the Silver Literary Titan Book Award! This is simultaneously very humbling and exciting.

Author Laura DiNovis Berry has created a magical world with much thought, care, and precision that will captivate young readers’ minds. The author’s quirky imagination is expertly displayed on each page, making this magical realm come to life in the reader’s mind. Many parts in the book carry a theatrical appeal allowing the reader to clearly visualize the scenes and characters, almost like watching a movie. This book reminded me of Harry Potter but for younger readers and with a less complicated plot.
