eye of the god

Product Description
eye of the god takes the fascinating history surrounding the Hope Diamond and weaves it together with a present-day plot to steal the jewel from the Smithsonian Institute. We follow Alex and Isaac Weld, the most lucrative jewel thieves in the world, in their quest to steal the gem, which according to legend was once the eye of a Hindu idol named Rama Sita. When it was stolen in the 17th century, it is said that the idol cursed all those who would possess it. That won't stop the brilliant and ruthless Weld brothers. However, they are not prepared for Dr. Abigail Mitchell, the beautiful Smithsonian Director, who has her own connection to the Hope Diamond and a deadly secret to keep. Abby committed long ago that she would not serve a god made with human hands, and the "eye of the god" is no exception. Her desire is not for wealth, but for wisdom. She seeks not power, but restoration. When the dust settles over the last great adventure of the Hope Diamond, readers will understand the "curse" that has haunted its legacy is nothing more than the greed of evil men who bring destruction upon themselves. No god chiseled from stone can direct the fates of humankind, nor can it change the course of God's story.

LIMITED Slip (Lexington Avenue Express)

Product Description
LIMITED Slip (Lexington Avenue Express - Short Fiction)

The chubby young man was gazing through the window of the diner at the faded letters on the water tower behind Neal's Texaco station. "BOVINA ... what kind of a name is that for a town?" he asked sarcastically. His baseball cap was tilted backwards, revealing the landscape of fiery red blemishes that decorated his pale forehead.

"Well I just don't know, MR. PIGG. Who named your whole dad-gum family after a snorting farm animal?" one of the companions sitting opposite him at the Bovina Diner shot back. Virgil Pigg glared at the skinny, bespectacled nineteen year-old but before he could speak the third member of the party chimed in.

"C'mon, Virgil," Tom Vining said smiling, "just eat your breakfast. Slim has been giving you crap about your name since Kindergarten; I've never seen it bother you before. Besides, you know the town is named after the buffalo that grazed around here in the old days. What's wrong with you this morning?"

"I'll bet Debbie dumped him again," Slim chided. "That's what he gets for dating a high school girl."

"Shut up!" Virgil said. His tone was harsh and Tommy saw the hurt in Virgil's eyes. He realized Slim was probably right about the girlfriend trouble.

Virgil looked toward the Texaco Station and abruptly changed the subject. "Do you suppose Neal is ever going to fix that sign?" A powerful Kansas storm had blown the Texaco E and X characters off the building months ago. The joke had grown stale but patrons were still referring to the place as Neal's TACO Station.

"You know Neal," Tommy grinned, "he's not in a hurry to spend any money." Glancing toward the station he added, "My new transmission came in yesterday. He's supposed to install it this morning. Should be ready by tonight. Neal wants to see my '57 running as much as I do; those Chevy boys are supposed to move on to Fort Scott tomorrow."

"I was over at the station a few minutes ago while I was waitin' for you guys," Slim said as he munched a piece of toast. "Neal's under her working right now. He had me lower the lift part-way down so he could jack your new M-22 in place."

Tom Vining spent every dime he earned on his primer-gray '57 Chevy two-door. He prided himself on owning the fastest car in the county. In 1966, street racing was illegal but usually overlooked in the sleepy Kansas town.

Tommy looked out the window toward the Texaco Station. In the shop shadows, he could see the wide racing tires of his pride and joy dangling eighteen inches above the floor.

A tractor trailer had rolled into Bovina, Kansas the previous day. When it stopped in front of the Chevrolet dealer it caused quite a stir. The truck was transporting four brand new, 1966 SS396 Chevelles. The two young men who accompanied the cars were demo-drivers hired by Chevrolet to convince buyers that the new model could outrun any muscle-car in the Plains States.

"Them factory boys have beat everyone but you, Tommy," Virgil said. "Johnny Moss was in here earlier. He said the red 396 beat his Mustang by five car-lengths last night, beat Webster's GTO by two."

Tommy nodded, brow furrowed as he thought about the shiny new Chevys. "It's not the red car you gotta worry about," he said quietly. "The yellow one, the one they haven't run yet, that's the fast one. It's supposed to have 375 horses but I'm guessin' they've got that Corvette four-and-a-quarter in her."

Silence settled over the group. Tom Vining passed his hand through a shaft of sunlight that had reached the edge of their table; his motion disturbed the dust orbiting silently there. Such a delicate thing, he thought.

"Well," Tommy finally said, "we'd better get going. Shift starts in fifteen minutes." Tommy always had a Coca-Cola with his breakfast; he moved the bottle away from the light that had reached the scarred tabletop and absently wiped condensation droplets from his fingertips to his blue jeans.

Remnants (Lexington Avenue Express)

Product Description
Remnants (Lexington Avenue Express - Short Fiction)

His eyesight had dwindled away in the year following his stroke. At the age of forty-one all that remained for him now was his writing, and his love for her, and the terrible burden of the secret he bore.

She turned from the screen, done with her editing. "This is good, Walter, but it's sort of ..."

"Creepy," he whispered, smiling, knowing she'd smile too.

"I suppose, but it is good. Do you want me to read it to you one more time?" she asked.

"No, I think I'll leave it as-is; this one's only a lark anyhow."

Of course, she knew it was a lark but she didn't say so. Before his illness, he'd enjoyed some small success, at least enough to eke out a modest living. Now blind and partially paralyzed, he clung to his work as he drifted on the gauzy, gray waves of a tossing sea.

"Shall I post it now?" his wife asked and he nodded his response from the wheelchair.

Instinctively, he reached forward and touched her forearm gently with trembling fingertips. "Thank you, sweetie," he said in a thin voice. As faint keyboard clicks confirmed she was entering a familiar website and copying his text file there, his thoughts drifted to bright Sunday afternoons, her laughter, her loving touch.

"Okay, mission accomplished" she quipped. "We'll look back in tomorrow and see what people have to say about the first chapter of REMNANTS; for now, how about some lunch?"

Past Lives, Present Dangers

Product Description
Product Description
World War II, early 1940s
Ruby and Hazel were nurses in the war, both stationed in the Pacific. Neither one understood or even thought about what was going to happen to them then: Hazel followed a man she loved and Ruby followed Hazel because the women had grown up together-there were no other options considered.

They saw some horrible injuries then-one or the other of them was often the last face seen by too many damaged young men. Neither liked to speak of it, but they both thought that was the end of such things when they settled back in the small city where they grew up. They now work the evening shift together in a small clinic next to the college campus.

Carroll, Oregon
It's the 1970s now, and women are demanding careers that are traditionally thought of as male, with few exceptions. Detective Sergeant Susan Hannah is the first female police detective in this small city near the Oregon coast. It's only one of the changes happening here: When a young woman staggers into a local clinic and dies in the arms of the elderly nurses there, Susan soon discovers a series of rapes and a police cover-up that has gone on for years-maybe decades.

But her progress is confused by too many suspects, including the cops themselves-all local boys Susan has known all her life. Then there's the students and all the other men of the local college, which happens to be a seminary with roots back to the old religion. That includes a particularly interesting monk named Brother Rico Patrick, who keeps crossing paths with the investigation-time and again.

The victims over the years have scattered, most won't talk anyway. To her horror, Susan finds that this is not the first time this has happened here. Several women were raped here years ago-during the war, in fact. Back then, the authorities put it down to just more casualties of just another war.

Same perpetrator coming back for more? That would give her a different kind of suspect list-and might also include her own father. But something else here seems too familiar-the people, the events, the touch and feel of evil-like this has all happened before. And what became of those souls then?

Resemblance to anyone now-living with anyone long-dead is not coincidental. If the past is playing out once again, will it turn out better for the victims this time? For some, the answer is already been given: No.

Gods in the Machine
Science Fiction novel
Space Construction Inc. has been granted permission by both the U.S. and U.N. to build space hotels along the equator. In exchange, the U.S.-based company agrees to build a black ops complex inside every hotel. Housed within one of these complexes is The Gods in the Machine Project. In this program, the U.S. military creates religious holograms so real they are accepted by those who view them as visions.

The Gods in the Machine holograms are weaponized, used for brainwashing people into fighting green humanoid creatures observed in numerous places on Earth by members of the United Nations. Unfortunately, no one in the U.N. bothered to check if these creatures are our enemy or our salvation. There are a number of people who do know the true nature of these beings. Racing against time, they try to get the message out

Sikander
"SIKANDER is the sweeping tale of the son of a Pakistani middle-class family
It's 1986. Seventeen-year-old Sikander, dreams of studying and living in America, but in a blind rage after a family quarrel, he leaves his Peshawar, Pakistan home. Encountering mujahideen warriors, he joins them in their fight against the occupying Soviets in neighboring Afghanistan.

Wonder why Mr GA? If you click on the link you go to Amazon books page, and the product description is usually there!
It is also then possible to 'see inside' of most books, so easy to decide to buy or not buy :-)
An Amazon glitch perhaps :-)x
