Simple Witness

Harold Bartz, aka Bandit, has a low IQ which contrasts sharply with his delusions of grandeur. He flees Minneapolis after witnessing a murder. Once in Las Vegas, rather than hiding, he starts cooking up schemes. His pals, Banger and Diggs, soon join him. Bandit has company in Vegas: Yuri Vostov and Nikki Kerlenko, two Russian hit men sent by the sadistic Jethro Plack. A shady telemarketer, Plack separates guileless customers from their money. His company is in Minnesota, but he oversees Internet swindles from a hidden office in London. Plack’s scam, Fortune Fate Lottery, gains the attention of Sean O’Dell, a St. Paul police lieutenant. O’Dell is investigating the explosion of Internet crime and its elderly victims. “C. J.” Johannson, a Minneapolis cop, is assigned a suicide case. Lana Winton’s death however, doesn’t fit the profile of a suicide. C.J. begins gathering clues that lead him to Plack’s office in St. Paul. Plack’s elaborate scheme has evaded detection thus far. Working against him this time however, is his own man, hacker extraordinaire Tommy Ling, who becomes uncomfortable with the idea of destroying the lives of innocent victims. Ling hatches a plan to scam the scammers and become the Robin Hood Hacker. When Bandit finally comes forward, C. J. can go after Plack for murder and O’Dell can foil Plack’s Internet scheme in London. With Plack behind bars, the Robin Hood Hacker makes headlines while Bandit and his pals stumble into a surprise in Vegas.

The Vicissitudes of Fortune

Five teenagers from diverse backgrounds are brought together by a war. A Japanese, a Jew, a Native American, an African American, and a white kid from middle-class America form an interdependent relationship in the jungles of Vietnam. They become the most highly decorated squad in a war they don’t understand, but their relationships transcend the social structures of racism formed through historical injustices, and they remain best friends for decades. Their iconic leader, Billy Stone, one day finds himself entangled with a Medicare scam dreamed up by his sister’s husband. For his sister’s sake, he must find a solution. The livelihoods of the others form within the law enforcement communities in their individual and collective quest for justice as they grow from boys to men of great character. Even the strongest of character has its flaws, but these men are the best of the best, and there is only one adversity they cannot overcome. From the Selma-to-Montgomery march, the internment camps of WWII, the poverty and desolation of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation; to the estrangement of a father and son and a suicide of great consequence, this team of five becomes one. At the same time, there are “takers” like Billy’s brother-in-law who infect the American system. They need to be brought to justice, but the price will be high. On the smallest of scales, this is an epic tale of how the dream of a world community can become a reality.

Why did two apparently unrelated murder victims, a young prostitute and an unidentified Korean man, die on the streets of New York City with the same cryptic words, “A thousand points of light,” on their lips? NYPD Detective Sergeant Walter Hudson’s efforts to find out unexpectedly but inexorably lure him into the treacherous worlds of political intrigue, unchecked power, and limitless wealth—worlds that he is ill-equipped to understand. But he has to learn fast as he begins to peel back the layers of a monstrous plot that threatens not only the city he loves, but his country as well.

Placid Hollow: A Walter Hudson Mystery

Federal Judge T. Franklin “Teddy” Braxton was beloved by his family and admired by his peers. His immense wealth had put him at the pinnacle of New York City’s elite political and social worlds. So who murdered him in cold blood? Perhaps it was the nearly naked young woman found standing over his body with a .45 caliber pistol in her hand. Or perhaps not…. Detective Lieutenant Walter Hudson is in over his head, and he knows it, as he immediately begins to receive intense pressure to solve the case from both Mayor Deborah Kaplan and Police Commissioner Sean Donahue, both personal friends of the Judge. And he may be getting in over his head personally as well, as the judge’s beautiful daughter, Virginia, starts giving him more help than he’s looking for. He’ll need all the help he can get from Leviticus Welles, now a rising star in the NYPD’s Intelligence Division, to guide him through the maze of Teddy Braxton’s life as well as the tangle of his own emotions. But one thing Walter knows from the start is that there’s nothing placid at all about Placid Hollow.

You wrote about your first kiss, your secret crushes, and everything that was important to you. Well, Chart-A-Meal is the same thing. Chart-A-Meal allows you to write down all your eating habits, good and bad. According to research, keeping a food diary is one of the best ways to help you stick with a weight-loss program. “You become very aware of what you’re eating. You get a lot of insight on food choices that are healthy and food choices you might want to change.” Even if you have already lost the weight it is a great idea to continue journaling your meals, so you won’t ever fall back into the fat trap again. It makes record-keeping quickest and easiest if you write down everything you eat and approximately how much. No one has to see it. Included with Chart-A-Meal is a Mood Food Journal to note how you were feeling at the time you were eating. Recent studies have shown that certain situations trigger emotions that lead to binge eating. The Mood Food Journal can help monitor over-eating. It will also help you uncover your own unique food triggers. We have several festive holidays during the year that allows us to binge eat, gain weight, and feel sorry for ourselves. Not to mention the three that comes in a row: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. These holidays arrive so fast and so close together you really need a plan just to get through them.
