Summary: Psychic suspense: “Welcome to Paradise,” archaeologist Susan Dunne hears on arrival at the Caribbean island to research petroglyphs and unravel the mystery of her brother’s drowning there.  But this sunny tourist paradise conceals dangerous secrets – violent native unrest, a sunken treasure guarded by legendary Jumbies, and a bloodthirsty cult. She’s more troubled by her own psychic visions of a shadowy murderer. Susan literally dives into her investigation of the sunken treasure ship where John drowned, and its link to the photo of underwater petroglyphs he’d sent before his death.  To find the truth, she must work with her number one suspect – Vic Manden, the salvage expert who was working the site with John.  Resisting her attraction to the unpredictable combat vet Manden, Susan is soon in over her head in more ways than one. The only way through the murky intrigue is to dive deeper into the tantalizing clues of her visions.

Summary: A Journey to the Crossroads of Science and Myth The New Leprosy plague and a geomagnetic reversal threaten earth’s precarious balance. An unlikely trio may hold the key to reset the compass of the world:

  • “Saint Ariadne” Demodakis—a Greek bioelectricity researcher who realizes she’s curing plague victims by laying on hands.
  • Peter Mitchell—a jaded American veteran of the latest Gulf War, now a smuggler in the Mediterranean.
  • Leeza Conreid—a paparazza equipped with the latest neurally-connected media implants, who wants revenge and a big story.
Peter, blackmailed into bringing Leeza along, hires on with reclusive Ariadne to secretly  transport her to sacred sites in the Greek islands. She seeks to confirm a connection between the pandemic, geologic upheavals, and ancient lore that promises healing for humans and the planet. Peter doesn’t realize they’ll be pursued by violent Sons of the Prophet, mercenaries, and a cult of warrior women, out to claim Ariadne’s rumored powers—or kill her. He will need all his wits and weapons to protect Ariadne as she labors to control her connection to the dangerous forces that may deliver a global cure. Or destroy them all.
