A Deadly Distance (Jack Noble #2)
Washington, D.C. Midday. A man waits at a bus stop, his intentions unknown. Two government operatives have been stalking him for days, waiting for him to make his move. Unexpectedly, the man takes off running and heads for a deserted warehouse.

Jack Noble and his partner, Frank Skinner, believe the man to be part of a terrorist organization that is involved in smuggling drugs and guns and men into the country. But it turns out their plan involves far more export than import, and hits a lot closer to home.

As the case in this explosive thriller unfolds, the man behind it all reaches out to Jack with a simple message... 37 hours.

The Pack: Winter Kill
The idea for this werewolf noir series started with a murder.

I walked out of a store on some crummy errand or another and I saw it plain as day. A young man falls down in the desert. A boot appears on the back of his neck, and the camera floats up a uniformed leg to a .45. Higher still and we see a grizzled sheriff staring down at the young man.


A young woman runs past him, screaming. A deputy chases her. The sheriff raises his pistol.


The camera follows the path of the bullet. It streaks past the deputy’s ear toward the woman. It slams into the back of her head. The screen goes dark, then the bullet and the camera reach daylight on the other side.

I sat in the car for a few minutes to write it all down in my notebook. It had been so vivid I could see the characters’ features, the sheriff’s boots, badge and uniform, the girl’s red, flower-print sundress flowing in the breeze. I didn’t care where it came from, what I wanted to figure out was what to do with it.

Whole Grains, Empty Promises: The Surprising Truth About the World's Most Overrated 'Health' Food
In Whole Grains, Empty Promises: The Surprising Truth about the World’s Most Overrated ‘Health’ Food, independent health researcher Anthony Colpo unmercifully slaughters the healthy whole grain myth with a mountain of scientific evidence interlaced with his unmistakable wit.

For nearly a decade, Colpo has been slaying nutritional dragons and diet gurus with his scientific rigor and the unapologetic truth in a way that could almost be considered a martial art. In this book he examines the pervasive belief that whole grains are both healthy in general and healthier than their refined counterparts.

The verdict? No they’re not. And the foundation upon which the belief that whole grains are healthy is built will shock you!

In the book you’ll learn that you may be giving yourself arsenic poisoning with all that brown rice you’ve been eating, depleting your body of valuable minerals with your whole grain bread and porridge, and otherwise torturing your bowels and taste buds with spoonful after spoonful of empty promises.
