On board, her diligently trained international crew served and entertained her passengers. As Jessie and Joe boarded the Duchess, they looked forward to a trouble-free vacation. Jessie intended to use the sea days to outline her mystery novel. How could she know, as she gathered data for her work of fiction, that a real conspiracy would take place and that the Duchess would lose a passenger while at sea? Conspiracy, murder, human trafficking, drug dealing and sweet romance are all part of this fast moving novel. Don't miss this sailing!


Loki and Simba

$ 15 USD

Everything is the result of Cause and Effect. The Cause: In the early 1900s, a man is accused of murdering another man for killing a wolf. The accused man responds, "No, I did not murder a man who was about to kill a wolf, I killed a man who was about to murder a wolf... an entire family of them." The heinous climax of the ensuing trial sets the stage for The Effect manifesting itself some eighty years later in horrendously grisly murders throughout the Northeast. A parapsychologist and a cop, with the help of a handwritten log dating back to the time of the infamous trial, painstakingly unravel the mystery and in the process come to fully comprehend that "when you dance with the devil, you don't get to lead."

On the surface, Alexander Christos is a seemingly upwardly mobile young professional rapidly approaching middle age. But scratch beneath the surface and what is exposed is a soul that is emotionally, mentally, and spiritually burnt to a crisp. He’s done. And he wants out… all the way out. But then, in the very process of fashioning his own demise, something intervenes. That “Something” is about to breathe new life – and death – into him. Lured to the Island of Diarma, Christos believes it a near-Utopian advanced living state. But it proves to be no Utopia at all; rather, an arena that employs a methodology that is at once brutal, merciless, and magnificent. In the spirit of John Fowles’ The Magus, Michael Staley’s Diarma will take you on a trip that will stretch the bounds of your imagination. In the process, it lays out a very interesting and feasible blueprint for mankind’s “Next Step.” Reality… is a Place, a state of mind in which you live, thrive, and grow…
