Deep beneath the ocean lies the secret of human origins.
A discovery with the power to change history.
Or wipe us from the earth.
For over a decade, archaeologist Dr. Martin Anders has searched in vain for proof of the fabled continent of Atlantis. After raising a puzzling artifact from the ocean floor, Anders gets more than he bargained for. It is a piece of modern technology thousands of years old.
To unlock its origins, Anders and a small team of scientists and Ex-Special Forces will travel to a distant land shrouded in mystery and surrounded by creatures long extinct.
But they aren’t alone. An ancient order is close behind. And they’re determined to hide a secret they believe man was never meant to know.
The stakes for the human race couldn’t be higher. What awaits could answer one of humanity’s oldest questions, or lead to its extinction.
A fast-paced archaeological thriller that will make you question everything you think you know. For fans of James Rollins, A.G. Riddle and Preston & Child.
12,000 years ago, the human race underwent a dramatic and inexplicable shift. Seemingly overnight, our species transitioned from nomadic hunter-gatherers to sedentary farmers and before long, to the architects of modern civilization. It’s a mystery that has left scientists utterly bewildered.
…a quantum computer more powerful than all other computers ever created…combined
…a madman seeking to destroy civilization with a computer virus targeting the Internet of Things
…a brilliant but reclusive geneticist determined to solve one of the great mysteries of all time
…and Oreste Pax, inventor of the augmented/virtual reality glasses used all over the world
Pax is now the head of Omnitech, the biggest company in the world. But despite all his success, he is facing a shareholder revolt and could soon lose control of the company he founded. His only hope lies with a project he hopes will transform human cognition, and convince his doubters he is still the visionary leader he once was.
But when a massive computer virus attacks the fragile bonds holding society together, Pax is torn away from his concerns to face a much greater problem. A group of people possessing technology far ahead of its time will force him to make a decision that will affect the entire human race. The choice of what to do is his, and his alone.
A clever, compelling vision of the future, “The Infinet” is a speculative fiction thriller that can’t be missed!
Private investigator and forensic accountant Katerina Carter uncovers a sinister connection between blood diamonds and organized crime. Then two company employees are brutally murdered and her investigation becomes much more dangerous than she had ever imagined. Can she can stay alive long enough to expose the real criminals…or will her first case be her last?
The Nameless One … lies but does not rest … dreams but does not wake … waits but does not tire
The Lost Tomb of the First Emperor of China is about to be discovered. But the Emperor is a powerful Taoist sorcerer who discovered the Elixir of Life and drank too deep. He sleeps in his mighty tomb, guarded by rivers of mercury, Terracotta Warriors, and a Quicksilver Dragon ready to rise again and resume his quest; to conquer heaven.
In 2042, James Martin had become a member of the Presidential Caucus, a band of four powerful men charged with the responsibility of governing the United States of America. But that wasn’t good enough for James because he had bigger plans. America was just his stepping stone to the ultimate goal, which was to become the most powerful man in the world.
James Martin studied totalitarianism his whole life. To make his dream a reality, he crafted a detailed plan which required him to balance multiple personalities, collude with foreign governments, murder friends and enemies, and threaten almost everyone who got in his way.
All of this takes place in the foreground and aftermath of World War III. After America is attacked, both coastlines experience significant death and destruction. Almost half the country flees to a safe zone located between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains. A new Capitol is established in Nashville, TN. This is the “The New America.”
While the country was secretly being taken hostage, we are introduced to A.J. Robertson. A son of a U.S. Army veteran, A.J. was well schooled in how to be a leader and warrior. He was also taught that the two most important things after religion were family and country. A.J. was destined to follow in his father’s military footsteps and became a Navy SEAL.
In Annapolis, A.J. became one of the four “Paladins”, a group of four midshipmen who bonded for a particular cause. Fate brought them together, but it was up to them to fulfill their destiny. Little did they know their defining moment would lead them into a battle with an American dictator.
The Paladins learned of James Martin’s plans from high-level contacts embedded within the Federal Government. With precious little time, A.J. recruits a team of 50 brave Navy SEALs to take part in “Operation Eagle Restoration.”
Will it be too late to save the nation from tyranny? The outcome can only be black and white. It’s freedom or suppression. It’s kill or be killed. There is no middle ground. A.J. and his team don’t know if they will be successful, but they do know failure is not an option.
Why does this story need to be told?
The story is very relevant to what is going on in the world today. Suspected collusion, power struggles, concerns about nuclear war, and never-ending corruption. It’s not just ominous, but it also stokes the fears we all have within our hearts and minds.
But more importantly, the story is an uplifting tale which re-establishes faith in the American spirit. It doesn’t matter how impossible the task is or how dire the circumstances are. If people band together for a common cause and believe in something, the impossible can become a reality.
A juvenile delinquent chases his dream to build the greatest aircraft in history–and the world tries to stop him. A rising political star runs from her childhood dream–and the world encourages her on. A self-loathing geneticist hides below the streets of Las Vegas–and rebels against the whole world. An artist tries to make his father proud–at the cost of everything he loves.
When all four lives collide, each must make a choice. And the world will never be the same.
Quote from the back cover:
Alexa counted her shallow breaths. “Roble, what…what is it you need?”
He pulled his arrowhead out from his shirt and rubbed it. “I don’t need to hear how scary the world is and how I shouldn’t try anything. I don’t need to know how much suffering there is out there,” he pointed out the window, “or how bad I should feel about it. What I need…” he looked up, his grey eyes pleading, “…is to see someone who is still happy after growing up.”
Lowering his head, he added, “I need to see living, Ms. Patra, because I actually want to live.”
Quote from inside:
The East China Sea glistened like an endless glass sheet. The F-22 Raptor Super Kai flashed just above its surface, ripping twin aerated water plumes into the air.
A grey destroyer sat broadside in the water just ahead. Roble hurtled toward its bow without slowing.
Crossing above the ship, the jet’s sonic shockwave rocked sailors to the deck as if Roble’s soul had exploded through their bodies. Sea spray from the wake doused the ship’s hull like an exclamation point.
Advisory: This novel contains sex, drugs, and fighter jets.
