My novels “Field Piece, The Complete Series” and “Death on Delivery” are both on sale on Amazon Kindle from Thursday August 21 through Midnight on Wednesday August 27 for only 99¢ each. Take advantage of this special pricing if you haven’t read these novels.
Field Piece, The Complete Series includes both Field Piece, Book I: Tehran and Field Piece, Book II: Azerbaijan.
In Book I the hero is in the best of health (early 40’s), but by Book II, two years later, he’s got a bad back. A really bad back. (How many people do you know in their 40’s who have not had back problems?) I haven’t given a problem like vertigo to any of the heroes in my books, but that would be really tough to handle, wouldn’t it? Not like Jimmy Stewart in the Alfred Hitchcock movie “Vertigo.” That was not the vertigo that we’re concerned with. I’d give my left pinkie to not have real vertigo problems, and I’m sure many of you would agree with me on that!
Anyway, in Book I of this series, a CIA agent is murdered in Tehran, and the White House wants someone on the scene to determine what the agent discovered that led to his death, and who is responsible. The agent is supposed to remain low-profile — just get in, find out what the hell is going on, and get out. No women, no trouble, no killing. The U.S. State Department sends agent Steve Walker. That might have been a bad choice …
In Book II of this series, Walker returns to Iran on another assignment: to staunch the flow of black market American weapons to rebels in Azerbaijan. His boss says Walker has a tendency to overachieve and is sometimes a loose cannon. Truer words were never spoken …
The hero in my mystery Death on Delivery, named John Bent (because his view of right and wrong is a little off), doesn’t have any physical problems. (Those were the days, weren’t they?) Maybe next book I’ll give him ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease (I had UC), but maybe that’s too harsh. The plot: when former Montgomery County, MD police detective John Bent finally gets out of prison, he lands a job working as a computer programmer on a high-profile NASA project. But he finds his new job is more dangerous than his stint as a cop when someone starts killing the other members of the development team. There’s a healthy amount of flirting, sex, violence, horses, and even comedy in this novel.
And no, I have never been to prison and I don’t live with a prostitute! However, I have been on too many software projects where the manager claimed “we’re all going to die if we don’t finish this project on time.” Right.
