Insider Justice: A Financial Thriller (A Marc Kadella Legal Mystery Book 8)

by Dennis Carstens


Celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella takes on the fall-out of a class action suit against a beloved corporate toy company gone wrongâ??and ends up falling down a rabbit hole of insider trading, sex scandal, political corruption, and murder, in the eighth page-turner of the Marc Kadella legal mystery series.

Like most investors, venture capitalist Cal Simpson has his fingers in many a financial pie. There’s cutting edge war plane procurement, state-of-the-art toy manufacturing, and the occasional affair with the right politician (to name a few). Some call him a shady Wall Street kinda guy. Others know him to be a tyrantâ??a mastermind with puppets intricately connected by a billion dollar string.

One of his pet projects is the newest Cannon Brothers toyâ??a motorized skateboard for kids as young as 10 that takes the marketplace by storm, until it blows upâ??literally. Seems its Chinese manufacturer has installed lithium batteries that overheat the braking system, sometimes causing it to explodeâ??leaving 24 kids dead and 500 injured. But the bigger problem is just as sinister: the small pool of people with insider knowledge of the defect are beginning to disappearâ?¦

First there’s Irving Haraldson, a company engineer who discovered the defect before release and brought it to management with a furrowed brow. He was told every single battery would be replaced, release date be damned. And then he was discovered behind a Minneapolis pick-up bar with 3 bullets in his head.

Then there’s the capable albeit young corporate lawyer Lynn McDaniel, who was assigned to defend Cannon Brothers in litigation. After discovering the engineer’s memo and distributing it to her boss, Zach Evans, she turns up dead in the woods en route to a 4th of July party being thrown by Zach’s father-in-law: Cal Simpson.

Zach finds himself on trial for murder, with inimitable criminal lawyer Marc Kadella in his cornerâ??and a nagging suspicion Cal knows more than he’s let on.

A bleak and accurate portrayal of the lewd world of financial crime, where not even children are protected from the greedy and power-hungry, Insider Justice is Dennis Carstens’s most intricate murder mystery yetâ??a heart-racing financial thriller that reads like a delicate puzzle, and a plot that twists and turns with meticulous precisionâ??right up to its astounding conclusion.

Bridal Pact (Warriors of Phaeton Book 1)

by Leora Gonzales

RE-PUBLISHED by the author, this is Book One of the Warriors of Phaeton series.

Poppy is bored to tears with her dead-end job and dull life, so when a species of alien warlords arrives on Earth, seeking women to help repopulate their race, why wouldn’t she sign up? She doesn’t care who she’s matched withâ??until she meets him. Sexy, long-haired, leather-pants-wearing Wheaton was a bit more than she bargained for.

Diplomat Wheaton expected a cultured Earthling to help in his mission, not some crazy-haired woman named after a flower and whose speech baffles his translator. Pardon my French? Knock it off? But Wheaton is soon smitten and eager to turn Poppy’s good-morning kisses into an all-day affair. Doing the nasty? Bring it on!

But Poppy must do battle with the slimy councilor Demascus, and an extremist group opposed to the Pact. And that’s before a glitch in the Bridal Pact program makes all existing matches invalid, and glossy Hannah, the perfect politician’s wife, arrives on board. Her match: Wheaton.

Ten years ago Reece broke Piper’s heart. Now he stands between her and her dreams. Can they put the past behind them and work together?

It’s been ten years since Piper Daniels had her heart broken by Reece Stone, President of Stone Enterprises. She would happily let another ten years pass, if it weren’t for the community garden she’s trying to start.

He royally messed things up with Piper when they dated before, but he’d never been able to forget her. Helping her navigate the unexpected roadblocks to getting her garden would help make that up to her. And if he is really lucky, maybe he can convince her to give him a second chance.

Survive! Making Pemmican: A Prepperâ??s Guide

by Lorayne Miller

This book is about pemmican which got its name from the Cree word “pime” which means fat or grease. It’s made from a concentrated mixture of red meat and fat. Pemmican is considered a nutritious food because it contains a lot of nutrients, needed by the body. It’s a recipe developed by the Northern American Indians and has been used as early as the 18th and 19th centuries. The recipe that I use is what most people are presently using is very similar to how the Native Americans did it before. And today, it’s still used by many as a survival food, which can last for years if properly prepared and stored. Ten pounds of Pemmican can supply food for two weeks! All preppers and survivalists should know how to make pemmican.

Confessions Of A Mail-Order Minister

by Jerry Vehovec

A life flight helicopter flew Bo to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado. His parents flew to Denver, real expeditiously—, mainly because the Neurosurgeon stated rationally their son was at death’s door. Bo’s Mother, Marion was heaven-sent. She made sure, first by praying then by her constant hounding of the medical staff that her son was going to make it. She later told Bo a few of the doctors didn’t think he would ever wake up. While in his deep sleep Bo materialized in what appeared to be a cloud. The cloud (which could have been the waiting room for surgery) had angelic people (nurses) and a father figure (the doctor). Bo drifted in and out of his coma not knowing what reality was. All he knew was this: a heavenly figure told him to become a minister for the people. That was the beginning of the story. The opening page has three pictures of the van accident result with original newspaper clipping. An interesting Photo section at the end of the book, shows some of the main characters, credentials. and publicity.
Then “Confessions of a Mail-Order Minister” tells of Bo’s (Jerry Vehovec) adventures in Los Angeles and Pensacola Beach be it standup comedy (in a club or on the streets), dancing in bars, drinking, or driving his beloved convertible, Bo always had a mission. Bo was an expert photographer and orator who used different methods to save people. He sometimes questioned the purpose of life but still believed in God (he joked, “just in case.”) Believe it or not, Bo was a very spiritual person who genuinely loved people.

I’m a little hormonal right now.

Y’see, I found the ring at the bottom of his sock drawer, a modest diamond sitting on a thin, yellow gold band. But now 8 weeks later, it’s gone. He returned it and my once-devoted boyfriend is having second thoughts.

Great. Just great.


I like to keep to myself. Just me and my farm. So when a chatty city girl shows up in search of work, I’m hesitant to hire. But with her adorable blond ringlets and her pretty pink lips, I can’t bring myself to say â??no’.

And did I mention that she’s pregnant?

Anyway, I’ve got to keep my head on straight and ignore the way she sends my libido into overdrive, all while keeping this farm from plunging into bankruptcy.

Great. Just great.

Chasing Diets: Stop the Endless Search and Discover the Solution

by Robert Ziltzer

America is addicted to dieting. There are millions of people who are sickâ??sick of being overweight. These people have been chasing diets over a lifetime and are ready to stop their endless searching and discover a solution to weight loss.

There are thousands of diets and tens of thousands of diet books; each month a new diet book comes out with new promise and new hope. They all fail sooner or later, leaving the dieter ever more hopeless and more discouraged. Studies of self-help diets usually show no greater than ten pounds of weight loss after one year.

In truth, self-help dieting is a no-win venture. Self-help and “next best diet” approaches ignore the fact that obesity is a medical disease that, in most people, requires medical treatment.

Doctors Craig Primack, MD and Robert Ziltzer, MD discuss the shortcomings of self-help diets, and more importantly show dieters how to find a weight loss program that worksâ??for life! Founders of Scottsdale Weight Loss Center in Arizona, Drs. Ziltzer and Primack have worked with thousands of patients who have found that medical management is the essential ingredient to success.

The four-pronged comprehensive weight loss program explained in Chasing Diets is designed to use all the tools available today: medical management of proper nutrition, activity and sleep, and education. Used together, these tools can empower people who struggle with obesity to stop the search and arrive at a solution for losing and maintaining goal weight.

Women and Confidence: The Truth About the Lies We Tell Ourselves

by Lana Bastianutti

Throughout their years of coaching women, authors Bastianutti and Ford were struck by how many smart, talented, articulate, and brilliant women they had encountered–who despite all of that–continued to sit on their ideas instead of sharing them; continued to second-guess themselves; and continued to let their insecurity hold them back and play small both in their work and relationships. They too recognized themselves to be one of those women.They wondered why the problem of insecurity had such a hold on women, despite all of the tools and strategies they utilized in their work as coaches. Why were women unable to close the gap of insecurity and change the habit of being their insecure self? Why wasn’t it working?These are the questions that get answered in their new book: Women and Confidence: The Truth About the Lies We Tell Ourselves.What if everything you thought you knew about how to be confident actually missed the mark? What if you’ve been looking in the wrong direction? Women and Confidence: The Truth About the Lies We Tell Ourselves, makes a bold and revolutionary claim that confidence is not something we have to achieve or create, but is in fact, an innate quality every single one of us possess.Sharing personal stories from their own life, authors Bastianutti and Ford illuminate the key role that thoughts and feelings play in how our experience of insecurity and confidence gets created. They make a strong and powerful argument that turns modern psychology on its head and allows us to see the illusion of our insecure thinking and more importantly, how to get free of it. With their compelling and very personal stories, each chapter argues and refutes the “lies” women tell themselves about why they can’t be confident–why they believe it’s not possible to be confident–both in their professional and personal life. This book finally leads women to the truth about this elusive quality we all want. It’s simpler than we all think.
