Danger Zone

by Doreen Owens Malek

DANGER ZONE – First Printing 1987
Released in 2012 as Book 2 of MEN OF INTRIGUE: A TRILOGY

DANGER ZONE has a tough, cavalier loner for a hero in Steve Colter, and the fun in this story is watching Karen Walsh worm her way gradually into his mercenary’s heart and break down his defenses. He tries hard to resist her and maintain his independent existence but the reader can tell from word one that he will eventually surrender. The story takes them around the globe but never far from each other’s thoughts, and when at the conclusion Colter transforms his life to keep Karen with him it is gratifying and fulfilling but not a surprise. The story also features a wise and witty best friend for Karen in Linda Folsom, a savvy Brit with a wicked sense of humor who keeps the saga humming along on the rare occasions when Colter is offstage. All in all it’s a fast moving and absorbing tale.

Words of Wisdom: A collection of African Proverbs

by A. N. Okonoboh

Did you know that “A corpse doesn’t like to hear that there are no burial clothes”? Words of wisdom in proverbs and riddles are a major part of the African traditional life. They seek to bring out a range of thoughtful advice, understanding, truth, morals and warning in both serious and humorous fashion. They evoke meanings out of daily experiences, show community unity and link to biblical spirituality. The beauty of this collection is the generous latitude towards many possible meanings as no attempt is made to suggest one. Unless otherwise indicated, all the proverbs here are credited to the Ishans, a small minority tribe in Edo. Still, most are known in other tribes and their messages are true of people everywhere. This book will gain audience among families and readers who seek to find the wisdom of words. So discover why” The room of a small child is not enough for a masquerade to dress up.” And why “A man needs to hold his organ in his hand in gesture when making advances to a woman who is deaf and dumb.”
