Paradox – On the Brink of Eternity

by Phillip P. Peterson

Travel to the Stars . . . A Dream Fulfilled or Humankind’s Worst Nightmare?

Ed Walker’s last mission almost ended in catastrophe. Although he had been able to save the lives of his crewmates, he’s still in danger of going down in history as the commander of the mission that wrecked the International Space Station. So he can hardly believe his luck when he’s chosen to head the first manned exploration of the outer solar system.
One of his new crew members is the young physicist David Holmes, who is studying the mysterious disappearance of three space probes.  But as their spaceship approaches interstellar space, humanity’s most pressing question is no longer: Are we alone in the universe? It is rather: Are we ready for the truth?  05/31/18: Revised edition

Pineapple Disco: A Pineapple Port Mystery: Book Six (Pineapple Port Mysteries 6)

by Amy Vansant


“Amy is one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend all of her books. No matter what genre she writes in, she manages to create books that demand that the pages be immediately turned to find out what happened,because you really care about the characters.” – Dianne Harman, USA Today and Amazon Chart #1 Bestselling Author

Humor, thrills and mystery abound in the SIXTH Pineapple Port Mystery. Charlotte, the 55+ community’s young female sleuth is thrust into a thrilling struggle to survive when her friend Jackie’s underground “mature” disco is infiltrated by violent criminals intent on claiming the club as their own.

Even more frightening — the ridiculously vengeful Gloria is back and on the warpath after a playful suitor goes missing.

Charlotte must search for the connection between the two cases with the help of Declan, whose own secret past with crazy, serial killer-spawn Stephanie is beginning to show…

Fans of female-sleuth authors like Jana Deleon, Lilian Jackson Braun, Gina Lamanna and Janet Evanovich will love the Pineapple Port series’ abundant humor and clever plots — as well as Charlotte’s sharp intellect and the love and loyalty she holds for the wacky 55+ community who raised her.

The Standard

by John Reinhard Dizon

Looking for a solution to the global recession, a coalition of international groups is planning a return to the gold standard.

Meanwhile, a criminal network of drug cartels and financial speculators are planning Operation Blackout: an attack against major gold depositories that would give them control over the global economy.

With both the USA and UK pitted against a worldwide criminal enterprise, MI-6 assigns William Shanahan to disrupt Operation Blackout with the help of Jack Gawain, of the Ulster Defense Association. As the criminal operation moves forward with full force, Shanahan and Gawain face an array of moral issues and deadly enemies.

With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, the two enter a race against time and insurmountable odds.

Praise for THE STANDARD:
“A thoroughly compelling read with some very interesting commentaries on personal ethics and morality and what we as a society are willing to sacrifice in the name of safety. You’ll find yourself wondering where you would draw the line.” – Ian McCain, Amazon review
” A James Bond style thriller, but with grit rather than glamour.” – Ian J. Miller, Amazon review
