Stuart MacBride

I was introduced to an author by the name Stuart Macbride.

The first mystery novel titled Cold Granite was dark and mysterious. I thought it would be too graphic for it dealt with children missing and a serial killer. But Stuart kept it light and used words to describe the events as a pathologist would explain them. His background research showed in his manner of writing.

The location is Scotland cold and dark, winter season and Stuart describes it well. Aberdeen and the  FHQ with it's architectural design and the Grampian Police Force.

Logan McRae has shown that he is a good Detective Sargent and though he may do things differently and not always by the book his gut feeling guides him through the process of finding the missing link to put the criminals behind bars.

This series is a must read for those who enjoy a good mystery novel. Added to your list....

I thought I would try the application on my mobile...I'm sitting here at Panera listening to a sales pitch about Web sites...not to me but to someone else...and I wonder of how much all this is true..the saying too good to be true comes to mind...I know there are legitimate MLMs but I've been burned by some I've become skeptical!!

The Rembrandt Affair by Daniel Silva

“Rembrandt’s Portrait of a Young Woman, oil on canvas, 104 by 86 centimeters” holds a deep dark secret. A secret if told could destroy many lives and cause catastrophic events to three major world powers. Since it’s existence lives have been altered through no fault of it’s owners. But a painting such as this, brings monies into the millions. What is it about this painting that everyone wants and yet, no one wants the secrets inside revealed? Who holds the key? Only one man can find this key an expert art restorer by the name of Gabriel Allon.
Gabriel Allon  is very well known for his work in restoring old paintings  from Van Gogh to Rembrandts. He has restored paintings in the past that seemed doomed to be tossed into the fire. But as a lover of beautiful things no job is too difficult or unpleasant a task.
Julian Isherwood a well known art dealer has a client ready to buy the painting for $35 million. He hired Christopher Liddell to restore the painting and now Liddell is dead and the painting missing. Julian feeling there is something a miss calls on a friend from the past Gabriel Allon. For not only is Gabriel an art restorer, but also a retired Israeli Agent. Julian has worked with Gabriel in the past and he knows that Gabriel is the right man for the job. How to convince him to assist? Maybe if Gabriel knew the history behind the missing painting.
Martin Landesmann a wealthy billionaire is interested in finding the painting, Peter Voss is a man not wanting the painting to be found, and Lena Herzfield never wants to see this painting again. Their lives are intertwined in the mystery behind and the unveiling of “Rembrandt’s Portrait of a Young Woman, oil on canvas, 104 by 86 centimeters”.
Daniel Silva captivates the reader with his style of writing and experience to detail. Though this is fictional work some of it is real and leaves it to the reader to decipher. However, the experience of Lena Herzfield and the art dealers depict the tragedy's that occurred during World War II and continue to occur in this present day.

First published in 1972 but written as if today in mind. Desmond Bagley writes an interesting spy spoof which includes double agents from three major powers Americans, Great Britain, and Russians.
Set in the isolated country of Iceland with it’s volcanic rock and geysers. Desmond Bagley brings this country to life with such clarity allowing the reader to feel and view every green scene, every treacherous road, and every sulfuric smell.

Alan Stewart ex-British Agent now retired was recruited as a messenger boy to deliver a package to a Russian agent. This package was small and sealed. He was not allowed to ask questions nor open this package. However, people are trying to kill him before the package is even delivered. Why? And who can he trust?

Alan and his fiancĂ© Elin are caught in the middle of this intrigue espionage that takes them to the back roads of Iceland and with every turn he finds himself in a “cat and mouse” game. And all he has as a weapon is his sgian-dubh-the black knife of the Highlander which he inherited from his grandfather who inherited from his grandfather. [[Sgian-Dubh]]

Great read and with the view of Iceland and it’s peaceful inhabitants Running Blind brings chaos to this peaceful country.

The Network by Charles Ingram

Confusion, speculation, intrigue, espionage, dramatization, and fear are words that describe this great mystery novel.
My first novel from this author has left me wanting more. A mystery novel with such detailed coordination by the most highest form of government. How can one government with DOOM in the air can pull off a complete evacuation of a city with ten million plus inhabitants?
Terrorism has struck the city of London and it is left up to two covert ops to find the ones responsible and eliminate them with the approval of worldwide governments. The mercenaries must be stopped at all cost for millions of lives are at stake and the threat of a WW III may be imminent. No one wants a great war; hence, it relies on all form of governments to unite and stop the terrorism once and for all.
This detailed mystery relates the extensive evacuation of a great city and all those parties involved. And how easily it can slip by if the governments don’t work together to rectify the process.
Harry Winchester and Tess Fulton; Malik and Dahlia are the main characters each with their own purpose in view. Yet, their lives are similar the former to stop the bomb and the latter to see the threat threw. And in the midst of this intrigue and cat and mouse chase (which takes them around the world) love finds them and fills their hearts with meaning. Every aspect of their lives have heightened and the lives of millions lay in limbo. Even with the latest technologies the experience of each party and their instincts leads them to trails so close not aware how close they’ve become as ships who pass through the night.
Zulu – hours before D-day and the clock is ticking.

Great political thriller by Alan Jacobson..
Agent Aaron Uziel known as Uzi was a former agent from Israel but born in the United States. He is an experience agent on terrorism and espionage. He was once an agent for Mossad* in Israel. After the tragic death of his wife and child he was sent to the United States and was recruited by the CIA.
Agent Uziel head of the JTTF out of WFO (Joint Terrorism Task Force, Washington Field Office) has been sent to investigate the attempt assassination of the president-elect Glendon E. Rusch. A helicopter containing Rusch and his family were blown from the sky. Something that should never had occurred for the helicopters are equipped with bullet proof glass and can contain direct hits from high power ballistic weapons. So how could this have happened? Who could have gotten that close? Security has been pumped up since 9/11 and background checks on all agents from all agencies have been upgraded with the latest technologies.
Agent Uzi has been given nine days to come up with an arrest. His investigations lead him to American Revolution Militia (ARM). Investigating this group is not going to be easy for they are protected by the Second Amendment – The Right To Bear Arms; and they have a high paying law firm well know in the Washington DC area backing them up. Uzi is frustrated for his investigation leads him to places he cannot cross such as Agents from other agencies and investigating politicians is a dangerous course to take. He is not allowed access to NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) records and that is just the beginning of obstacles blocking his way. During his investigations he meets counterintelligence agent Leila Harel. She has caught his eye and finds himself drawn to her. However, he feels guilty doing so..death of his wife and daughter lurking in his memory.
And through all this, he has been ordered to meet with a psychiatrist due to the brutal death of his wife and child murdered by the hands of Batula Hakim a well known Palestinian terrorist. He doesn’t have time for this but it’s either that or be sent off to an office position in the mid-west.
Agent Uzi’s investigations leads him through lots of twists and turns. And through it all, he has to maintain his emotions in check.
Note: great political thriller with emotions and surprise ending…a must read!!
*The Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection, covert operations, and counterterrorism, as well as bringing Jews to Israel from countries where official Aliyahagencies are forbidden, and protecting Jewish communities worldwide. It is one of the main entities in the Israeli Intelligence Community, along with Aman (military intelligence) and Shin Bet (internal security), but its director reports directly to the Prime Minister.----

Murder One

Tuesday, June 26, 2012


Joe DeMarco, now this is a guy you come to love. I feel like I know him personally. He’s a guy that you can’t help but to like for when you need him he’ll come. Trouble seems to find him no fault of his own. Its drawn to him like a magnate. He doesn’t search for it; he doesn’t have to it is dropped right onto his lap and says “here I am”.
Joe was first introduced to me through a free e-book download The Inside Ring by Mike Lawson. My first impression of this guy is he’s not very smart. His father worked for the Mafia but his father protected him and didn’t want him to become part of the crime family.
Joe is somewhat street smart and to look at him you would not want to mess with him for he has an appearance of a Wise Guy. A good looking Italian with dark hair broad shoulders and great physique. But Joe’s looks precede him, he is kind, gentle, and loves his country. However, don’t let his looks fool you, he can take care of himself. He is an attorney but doesn’t practice law. Someone who knew someone got him a job at the Capital.
Joe looks into things. He is somewhat a negotiator, investigator, and a carrier. He does odd jobs for Congress. His boss is the Speaker of The House John Mahoney. And when John asks him to check into a situation he hesitantly does it with no questions asked, that is sometimes. No one knows who Joe works for; he doesn't appear to have a boss. He is lost in the paperwork in the accounting department with no direct link to any particular employer. No one checks it because his office is in the subbasement of the Capital building with no windows. An insignificant employee with a GS-13/14 pay rate and its directly deposited into his bank account. He lives in a moderate home in an average neighborhood and drives a Volvo. He is an insignificant employee! At least that is what everyone at Congress thinks.
Joe DeMarco’s first series opens with an attempted assassination to the President of the United States that goes array. General Andrew Banks, the Secretary of Homeland Security, had received a note that the President’s life was in danger and he didn’t do anything about it. He wasn’t sure if this was a hoax and/or if the Secret Service was aware of it. How could someone get so close to the President? And where were the Secret Service? It is their job to protect the President. In fact according to the video it looked as if the Secret Agent actually bowed low to let the bullet pass. It almost hits the President but instead it kills the writer Perry Montgomery. General Banks looking at the video is alarmed and does not know what to do so he calls the Speaker John Mahoney asking him to look into it as a favor but not to stir the pot. For this would look bad for General Banks and his Homeland Security team! So the Speaker calls Joe and wants him to check if the Secret Service were aware of this assassination attempt and what did they do about it. Just do some snooping no big deal…
Joe thinks that this is way out of his league. He investigates little stuff minor things not assassinations especially towards the President. That’s FBI matter and for him to begin snooping could get him into a lot of trouble even killed. Those politicians who don’t like the Speaker will begin to snoop and will find out that he’s on no one’s payroll. He could lose his job and where could he get a job? He’s the son of Mafioso, even though his father is dead by the hands of another organized family member, he’s  potential employers would frown at the thought. And he would not work for organized crime it’s too dangerous.
Joe finds himself in a middle of a cover up beyond his dreams and needs to seek the help from the mysterious Emma. Emma had worked for the government and though retired she is gone out of town for long periods of time. Emma knows a lot of influential people and some scary characters. And Joe knew from the early start of their relationship not to ask questions. He wasn’t interested in beginning a relationship with Emma for she is gay and has a partner. However, when Joe finds himself in a situation he can not control or dangerous he searches for Emma. Emma KNOWS people!!!
Joe’s life is never the same. His life is in danger getting way over his head and people are trying to kill him. Agency’s like the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, and Secret Service do not like outsiders snooping into their affairs especially a punk like Joe DeMarco. But the Speaker pushes Joe and wants him to find out what is going on!!!!
Note: This is a great beginning to this series and each series gets better as you get to know this great character Joe DeMarco.

Mystery Novels

How many of us really enjoy reading a good mystery novel? Ones that have you guessing; keeping you at the edge of your seat? A novel is like a road map leading you the way and on the way you come across obstacles that must be encountered for there is no way around it. These obstacles must be chipped away or blown wide open for someone's life depends on it.
To find a good novel you rely on recommendations by readers. One persons’ choice may not be yours but you figure oh well I will try it anyway…sometimes it pays and others times you think what??????
I've come across novels that I couldn’t even get into due to the long winded beginning of the storyboard; and you begin to wonder where is this author heading and what does it have to do with the murder committed? Those are the ones I find long drawn with too much information of each character and you wonder if this is going to get any better. So you continue to read and hope that the author hurries up and gets to the task at hand as to “who done it”.
Then there are authors who give so much detail of a person’s back ground describing on how the character’s roots (coming from a dark place ) made them who they are today…well some is ok…but some authors just go way overboard…you begin to lose interest and lay the book down…aghhhh…While others give too much historical and/or geographical descriptions that now you're really lost and lose all interest in the book which you just purchased by download and you can’t return….
Ah but a good author knows when to bring the characters to life…you feel like you're actually watching a movie…or one of those CSI or law enforcement series…or an Agatha Christi movie..visualizing which actor would be good for the part if it was made into a movie…
Rufus Swell..hmmmm “”Rufus Sewell”” yummy!!!
I have found those type of authors like Alan Jacobson, Mike Lawson, Lori G. Armstrong, John Lawton, to name a few, very interesting. Some of these authors have created a character and write series of that same character. This character now has become real to you. You know how that person thinks and feels…now that’s a good novel…
Other mystery novels are filled with real history mixed with fiction and you wonder hmmmm is this all true? It even causes you to do some research to check for its’ accuracy and surprisingly you actually learn real history….now that’s funny…realizing they never taught you that in school…
These are the kind of mystery novels that are worth reading…some I will be sharing  with you and if you have any to share please do so….be nice lets not get graphic…
NOTE: I have to the right deny and remove posts that I find questionable…this is for fun to give us another place to share book reading….so lets have some fun….it doesn’t have to be mystery novels it can be any book you have enjoyed reading and want to share…thank you

Flying High

Here is your Friday story,
Winning Choices
(excerpt from an incredible new book “Flying High” by Calvin LeHew & Stowe Dailey Shockey)

I wanted a miracle. Now. Where was it? The truth was becoming painfully clear. I was not getting better. In fact, I was in bed for most of every day. The only times I left the house anymore were Monday mornings to meet with Calvin. My daily two-mile walks, a twenty-year routine, were no more. No more aerobics. No more weight lifting. Now I struggled just to sit in a chair. Lying down wasn’t much better. And to top it all off, I had—under much protest—begun taking pain medicine.

Not surprisingly, I was also dealing with depression. I had tried everything, short of surgery, to bring about my healing. Yet here I was, getting worse by the day. Prayer, special diets, vibrational medicine, a plethora of pills, healers, hypnosis, flower essences, chemo, radiation, and positive thinking. Where had all of this gotten me?

I was losing hope. Who was I to think I could co-author a book on positive thinking? I was losing sight of everything, slipping into an abyss of pain. Up until recently, writing this book had been inspirational to me. Now, it was a burden. What was I going to do?

I stared down at Calvin’s cassette tape on the coffee table in my sunroom. Winning Choices. It seemed to be mocking me. But since it was easier for me to transcribe a seminar than to write something new, I pushed the old cassette into the player. I needed some words of encouragement.

“I want to talk about conscious awareness,” he began. “The definition of awareness is, ‘The degree of clarity to which we perceive both consciously and unconsciously all the things that affect our lives.’ “I used to ask myself, why aren’t more people trying to get ahead and achieve more things? I think the answer is because they aren’t consciously aware of the many things that affect their lives, and the many choices they have under their own control. They would rather stay in their familiar comfort zone.

“I’ve come to believe that it’s okay for people to stay in their comfort zone . . . if they want to. Those people are either happy where they are, or they don’t know or believe these principles about conscious choices.

“Here’s something else that bothered me for a long time: Why didn’t God build us with total conscious awareness to begin with? The answer is: We had to have total freedom to discover these things on our own, or we wouldn’t be free. It couldn’t have happened if we weren’t free to fall down and be hurt. To be bored enough to learn new things. Or to take risks by faith and then succeed. What is faith without freedom to choose? The answer is in the Bible. And, by the way, the principles I live by are all in the Bible.

“Making choices is the key after becoming aware. Being aware of our choices. The choices you make—either consciously or unconsciously—are affecting your life. You are responsible for the choices you make. From the clothes you wear, to the dollars in your bank account, to your job, to where you live—these are all the result of choices you’ve made. You are either happy or sad because you choose to be.

“I chose the name Choices for our restaurant because of this, not because of the variety of foods . . . it was because of the importance of this concept. We have literally hundreds and thousands of choices every day, and most people don’t even realize it.

“Most of us are content to stay in our comfort zones . . . we get stuck there. Part of the reason for this has to do with fear. It’s scary to get out of your comfort zone. You’ve probably heard of people who stay in abusive marriages because they’re afraid to change their situation—even though they don’t like it, it’s familiar.

“I understand this. I get comfortable too. But when I become aware of it, I try to pioneer out so I can experience something new.

“So many folks are unconscious of the fact they are stuck in habits, customs, old beliefs . . . How much of what we do is based on these routines? I’m not saying traditions are bad . . . Rituals are great, if we don’t forget the meaning behind them. Christmas is great, as long as we don’t forget why we celebrate it. But the routine of worrying—that’s a destructive habit. Think about people you’ve known—maybe even yourself—unaware that doubt and worry control your life. Most of the time we’re not even aware that we’re unaware! We’re oblivious to the fact that we have choices. But as your awareness increases, you become conscious that you are choosing where you are going.

“As I increase my awareness I begin to see, ‘Gosh, I did allow that to happen to me. I did create that problem.’ And I realize I am responsible for my situation . . . responsible for my actions. Responsible for the opportunities I didn’t take advantage of. Responsible for the things I did and said.

I stared at the tape player and shifted in my chair.

“There was a time at Carter’s Court when I almost lost everything. I got into alcohol—Jack Daniels. I started drinking around 5 o’clock in the evening. And it was all because I had fear. I almost gave up. Over the years I survived several plane crashes; I nearly cut my leg off with a chain saw. And I don’t think these were accidents. I believe, on some level, that when we start giving up, we self-destruct. That’s what I was doing. In many ways we create our own sickness . . .

“But, thank God, we have choices. And with that knowledge we can create the life we want. As children, our parents and teachers—the adults in our lives—make most decisions for us. We don’t have much to say about what happens. When we grow up though, we become responsible for our own lives. Yet many of us still continue to let other people or circumstances make decisions for us, either consciously or unconsciously.

“Hopefully, what you’ll get out of this message today is to start consciously choosing your life the way you want it. No doubt, most of us are in a comfort zone, but it’s a great day to begin consciously making choices.”

I clicked off the tape. I needed that reminder—I’m in control of my own choices. I’d made so many about my health over the last year and a half. Some good. Some not so good. Some were made from a place of love. Some from a place of fear. I could see that the choices made from fear—fear of surgery, for instance—were the reason for the shape I was in now.

Maybe, on some level, I was—like Calvin suggested—“giving up.” He talked about “self-destructing.” That made sense. But that thing he said about “creating our own sicknesses” had me puzzled.

I could understand how a person might choose to abuse their body by drinking too much alcohol or overeating. That kind of lifestyle could eventually lead to sickness or even death. And a person engaging in risky activities is also upping the ante that they’ll be injured or killed. And those high-stress jobs some people have? Yes, they could certainly cause a heart attack.

I’ve known financially strapped men who made comments about having a heart attack, saying their families would be better off with the money from their life insurance policy. Maybe they were, on some level, either consciously or unconsciously, bringing that fate on themselves.

But did I really choose to have cancer? That was a hard one for me to buy into. Perhaps it was the result of past choices . . . who can say? But one thing was becoming clear: It was entirely up to me to decide how I would choose to—or not to—treat the cancer growing in me.
