Aware that his own President's security force in Santiago is fluent in Hebrew, his first trip abroad is to Tel Aviv. Sheik Bashir, a wealthy Saudi and former freedom fighter in Afghanistan, has made his decision. Taking his men with him, he gives up the deserts of Saudi Arabia for the desert in northern Iran. He, and his men will join the thousands of fighters already training in a camp called Murat. There, he will continue the fight for the only thing he hates more than the Saudi ruling family are the Americans who put them there. Descent Into Paradise is a chilling journey into a world of violence and deceit on a global stage. The story, relayed through the trials and tribulations of its characters, offers the reader a unique understanding of the passions fueling both the Arab Israeli conflict and the Islamic Fundamentalists ascent to power

    Indie Books reaches across the Atlantic this week as author Edward Freeland joins me to talk about his book: Adapt

    Daniel O'Neal lives a very normal life. He drives a bus for a living in a sleepy English countryside town, and enjoys the mediocrity of his daily routine. But on a trip to London, while enjoying a quiet drink with a friend, he notices a code of numbers on his mobile phone screen, and not for the first time.

    When Daniel returns home, he begins to notice an increasingly common malfunction with his electronic devices, as his laptop begins to develop the same quirk.

    Suddenly, his world undergoes a paradigm shift. It starts with subtle responses and giggles at work and in public. Daniel becomes increasingly paranoid, and certain that something is out of the ordinary, yet he cannot prove it. Before long, he believes himself to be under an assault on his being.

    Is there something more playing with him than just his mind? Is there an organised attack on his psyche, and if there is, can Daniel find the strength to endure the attack.

    The trilogy is heavy on plot with big shockers and cruel twists driven by hilariously interesting characters. With our without fangs, they're characters you can really envision in day-to-day life and the co-authors have introduced a spin on Vampires that's unlike any other you've come across.

    Author, journalist and acclaimed writing instructor Charles Salzberg joins me this week to talk about his books, including: Swann's Lake of Despair, Swann Dives In, Swann's Last Song & Devil in the Hole. 

    From Swann's Lake of Despair:

    When rare photos‚ a scandalous diary‚ and a beautiful woman all go missing at once‚ the stage is set for three challenging cases for Henry Swann. It begins with an offer to partner up with his slovenly‚ unreliable frenemy‚ Goldblatt. The disbarred lawyer-turned-"facilitator" would provide the leads and muscle‚ while Swann would do all the fancy footwork. A lost diary by a free-loving Jazz Age flapper is worth enough to someone that Swann takes a beat down on an abandoned boardwalk. Pilfered photos of Marilyn Monroe propel him deep into the past of an alcoholic shutterbug‚ his wife; and he's hired to search for a lonely writer's runaway girlfriend. The cases converge and collide in a finale that lifts the curtain on crucial‚ deadly facts of life for everyone -- including Swann himself.

    In the late 1970s the Emerson Rose Asylum became completely abandoned - all the patients, doctors, staff vanished and were never seen again. The events circling this mass exodus have been one of the most baffling disappearances in history...until now. For hidden deep inside a tattered asylum mattress a stack of bundled letters were found. These letters, all addressed to the pseudonym Dr. Quill, and all written by the patients as they document the final days of the Emerson Rose Asylum.

    Indie Books Show #54 (H. Alan Day)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 
    Author H. Alan Day joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs.  We may even get a chance to hear a bit about the book he co-authored with his sister Sandra Day O'connor back in 2002. That book was Lazy B: Growing Up On a Cattle Ranch in the American Southwest
    The Horse Lover is Alan's personal history of starting the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary, which was located on 35,000 acres in the Sand Hills of South Dakota. After successfully lobbying Congress to approve the idea, Alan received 1500 wild horses in 1989 from the Bureau of Land Management. His deep connection with the animals in his care is clear from the outset, as is his maverick philosophy of horse-whispering, which he used to train the entire herd. The memoir reveals the Heculean task of balancing the requirements of the government with the needs of the wild horses. He story also weaves in cowboying adventures that Alan had on some of his best horses and the lessons of perseverance, steadfastness, and hope he learned from these four-legged friends. Booklist is calling the memoir “an instant classic.” The story also is relevant to today’s wild horse issues that are costing the BLM $70 million per year. Washington is home to government-owned wild mustangs.

    Indie Books Show #55 (Tony Perez-Giese)

    in Books

    Tune in and help me welcome this week's guest. 
    Author Tony Perez-Giese joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about his novel: Pac Heights
    It is 1999 in San Francisco. The dot.com boom is in full swing, and it seems as though every twenty-something has become an instant millionaire-except our narrator, who has just arrived from the Midwest without a job. Confronted with the chilling prospect of missing out on the greatest cash grab of the twentieth century, he enlists with a temp agency. That's when things start getting strange. Mistaken by the agency for an urbane homosexual instead of the ex-frat boy he really is, he is assigned to a fully-staffed mansion in the Pacific Heights neighborhood. His new boss? Definitely not the old matron he was expecting. Bailey Phelan is the gorgeous, thirty-year-old wife of an aging billionaire, and her penchant for Prada, recreational drugs, and foreign boyfriends quickly has the narrator running in circles trying to keep her exorbitant spending and romantic misadventures under wraps. But despite all the glitz, what she might need most is a friend. As the narrator gets sucked deeper into the mansion milieu-oversexed nannies, a lovelorn gay chef, the obsessive head housekeeper, the bilious billionaire himself-he's faced with the unavoidable question: will the six-figure salary and over-the-top lifestyle of the rich and infamous corrupt him - or will he cut and run with his soul intact?
