The books

Two Graves Suspense, thriller


Forty year old Preston Peterson, pudgy, myopic and socially inept, knows the terror of being bullied. From his earliest childhood memory, he has faced ridicule, name calling, harassment and beatings. Fear ruled his life, possessed him, controlled his every encounter with others.

Now, he has killed.

Now, rage rules his life.

Digging out his despised High School year book, Preston uses computer aged photographs to find and kill look-alikes of his persecutors.

The time has come for those who bullied him to pay the ultimate price for their torture.

Preston is getting even and everyone is a target.

But with a panicked city and Lieutenant Gregg Mann's task force looking for him, Preston should have remembered the Chinese proverb, "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig TWO GRAVES."

The Schliemann Legacy Suspense, thriller

1873 — Heinrich Schliemann discovered ancient treasure in Turkey which proved the existence of Troy.

1943 — the treasure disappeared from Nazi Germany.

1981 — Henri Mardinaud, international information broker, discovers the treasure in the possession of Friedrich Heiden, ex-commander of Majdanek, a Nazi extermination camp. Using his network, the master gamesman positions his players in a race for the treasure and the Nazi:

David Morritt, recently retired Mossad agent and survivor of Majdanek.

Katrina Kontoravdis, a disgraced Greek intelligence operative hoping to redeem herself.

Duman, a vicious Turkish terrorist who will do anything to achieve his objectives.

From Europe, to Heiden's fortress in Colombia, to a secluded estate in Jamaica, Mardinaud uses the hatred between Greece and Turkey and the horror of the holocaust to fuel his twisted game.

More than the treasure, survival becomes the ultimate prize in this battle of haunting memories, revenge, and love.
