Editor’s Note: This book is an awesome blend of historical mystery, thriller, romantic suspense, and is all painted with amazingly vivid descriptions of ancient Egypy!
A fun and intriguing Egyptian historical mystery- with a twist!
Book Description: Neti-Kerty is an unusual thing in ancient Egypt because her father taught her the art of embalming and preparing bodies for mummification and burial. She is familiar with biology and anatomy, and being a bright girl she grew into an apprentice for her beloved father. Her skills drew the attention of Shabaka, a Nubian police man sent by the Pharaoh to uncover the mystery behind some dodgy things going on in the busy city of Thebes.
Author’s Inspiration: I’ve always been fascinated by the mystery and magic of ancient Egypt.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Megan Fox.
From the Book: Neti-Kerty and Shabaka ascended the steps leading to Thebes’s largest Per-Nefer chambers. The high-roofed building with its impressive pillared entrance, festooned with hieroglyphics honoring the gods, was divided into a series of chambers: where individual embalmers set about their work whilst training up the next generation of embalmers.
Their entrance was greeted by the familiar smell of burning spices: the smell originating from the lamps lighting the main chamber, all being filled with a herd infused oil. The smell, although overwhelming, could not completely dispel the stench of dead bodies.
This book is free 3/2-3/3.
Editor’s Note: This mystery thriller has got some intriguing characters- definitely don’t miss it!
This is a page-turner that is just utterly beauitful and haunting.
Author’s Inspiration: I wrote a novel, SAVING BEN, in honor of my brother, the boy I worshipped, the man I could not save. It’s not a memoir, but a story about the special bond between siblings.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Dakota Fanning.
From the Book: When I first met Badger, in language school in El Paso, someone had already pinned that nickname on him. The wide face, high flat forehead and a nose so sharp it could have been fashioned from folded cardboard, made the nickname inevitable. His eyes were the clearest blue and his smile encompassed his entire face. Badger wasn’t tall; he owed his imposing presence to a stocky, muscular build. When I asked about his nickname, he said it had something to do with his disposition. I never questioned that, as I never questioned much of what he told me; his manner was as reassuring as a priest’s.
This book is free 3/2-3/3.

Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Sandra Bullock
From the Book: Molly bent her lean body at the waist one last time to loosen her hips, pulling her head almost between her shins, her long, auburn ponytail flipped toward the ground. A faint clicking sound caught her attention, and she let her gaze move in its direction, but from her upside-down view, she couldn’t see anything out of the ordinary. She turned and faced the aged white clapboard church which loomed behind her. Molly shielded her eyes from the bright sun and watched a blue bird whisk by. Blue bird, blue bird, fly away home. Your wings are signs of peace for none.
This book is free 2/28-3/1.
Editor’s Note: In solving a murder-mystery, this book untangles a web of corruption in the Catholic church.
A mysterious page-turner with a financial twist.
Book Description: The murder of a Jesuit priest brings corruption in the Vatican to light. There’s a struggle over power and money endangering the lives of Michael Visconte and his family- and someone must be brought to justice.
Author Inspiration: The ongoing Vatican Bank scandals and the murder of Roberto Calvi along with the murders of Italian investigators over several decades inspired this work. I’ve long been fascinated by international money laundering and the Church’s global financial connections. The global financial crisis of 2008 and its aftermath was also an inspiration. “Rise of the Jesuits introduces the key characters who challenge Wall Street and global central bankers in the sequel, “Archangels 2: Vatican Gold.”

Author’s Inspiration: Halloween is crazy fun in Lahaina, Maui, but there’s a dark edge to it. When I lived in Maui I always wondered if Halloween night would be a good time to commit a serious crime while the police were busy busting drunks and writing up tourists for public nudity.
