CIA officer Karl Baier has been running a highly-placed source in the Communist Party and Hungarian government from his post in Vienna for over a year. When he receives a warning that his source is in danger, Baier knows he will have to return to Budapest to find and rescue his agent if he is even alive.

Who Rescued Who


Elizabeth Barnes, social media influencer and self-made woman, has no time for nonsense. Her world is fast-paced, and to stay on top, she needs to keep moving, posting, swiping, and developing engaging content more quickly than the rest of Silicon Valley.

And then, Elizabeth’s big plans come screeching to a halt when she’s unjustly fired from her job at a major tech firm.

Scrambling to set her life back on course, Elizabeth packs her bags and heads to the tiny town of Fargrove, England, to meet an estranged aunt and uncle who claim to hold a piece of her inheritance from her deceased father. Her plan is simple: get what she came for and return to Silicon Valley to reclaim her tech throne and take down her former boss.

Fargrove is a land of the locals, with remote internet access and even a few sheep roaming the fields. Elizabeth’s aunt and uncle are welcoming and kind, but she’s ready to high-tail it back to San Francisco ASAP. But when Elizabeth stumbles up…

Act of Murder

Doc Brady became an orthopedic surgeon to avoid being surrounded by death. But now it's everywhere around him.

One spring day in 1994 Houston, Dr. Jim Bob Brady witnesses his neighbor's ten-year-old son killed by a hit-and-run driver. An accident, or an act of murder? After the death, Brady enlists the help of his twenty-year-old son J. J. and his wife Mary Louise in chasing down clues that take them deeper and deeper into a Houston he never imagined existed. In the process, they discover a macabre conspiracy stretching from the ivory towers of the largest teaching hospital in Texas, to the upper reaches of Houston's legal community, to the shores of Galveston.

Doc Brady soon realizes that the old adage remains true: The love of money is the root of all evil.

My Review
