Sun Rising In The West: Does Japan Buy California?

by Tom H. Richardson

In 2005, the president surprises the Senate with a treaty that sells California to Japan for $60 trillion. Even for such a staggering sum, nobody takes the treaty seriously–until California’s Senator Matt “Bomber” Nakamura endorses it. Since he’ll lose his job if the treaty goes through, he becomes a national hero–the “Martyr to Zilching the Debt”–and the treaty gains support.

But his wife Barbara suspects the real reason behind his endorsement: he arm-twisted the promise of a huge bribe from Japan’s ambassador. Barbara is determined to stop her husband at any cost, to save the Californians he’s betraying. She has no money, no power, no influence–just determination. Nobody listens outside California, though, once Matt points out all of the fun ways Washington can spend $60 trillion. Even worse, her Japanese mother thinks the treaty is a godsend, and criticizes Barbara for publicly speaking against Matt.

Meanwhile in Japan, young robotics engineer Hiroshi Iwata gradually realizes that the California Treaty would be his key to a better life. Eventually Hiroshi will work hard to thwart Barbara’s efforts to save California.

Key to Lawrence: Special Edition

by Linda Cargill

Propellers rose above the maelstrom. The rudder lifted higher than the smoke stacks. The ship’s prow pointed down toward the deep. It looked as if the ship’s nose would hit the sea bed hundreds of feet below. The Lusitania sank in only 18 minutes after being torpedoed on May 7, 1915. Dora Benley vowed revenge on the enemy. Key to Lawrence tracks the beginning of her quest for justice in this special edition of the first volume of the Edward Ware Thriller Series. It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great War.
