Field Piece, Book II: Azerbaijan on sale in the Kindle Store for less than a buck


My novel “Field Piece, Book I: Tehran” was on sale on Amazon Kindle last week for only 99¢.  Now “Field Piece, Book II: Azerbaijan” is on sale on Amazon Kindle for only 99¢ from July 15th through midnight July 21st.

Book I takes place in 1995 and Book II two years later, when Walker returns to Iran on another mission. Many of the characters appearing in Book I are also in Book II, including, of course, our hero, Steve Walker. Walker’s friend from graduate school, Pasdaran Colonel Kamal Taleb, shows up again, along with his brash younger brother, Massoud, and the femme fatale Jilah, who became much more than Walker’s friend in Book I.

Predictably, Walker’s nemesis, his half-brother Azrak, once again is creating havoc, this time in Azerbaijan, where he is head of the Azeri secret police.

Russian mercenaries, Muslim freedom fighters, war — Walker’s stepped into it this time . . .

Vertigo and Strokes


I subscribe to some medical information via email, including the NEJM Journal Watch Stroke Alert, and this article was in the email today:

Stroke may present with vertigo as the only symptom

In the article the author writes “. . . days to weeks of continuous vertigo or dizziness, nausea or vomiting, head-motion intolerance, gait unsteadiness, and nystagmus . . .” can actually be caused by small strokes.

That just floored me. Which one of you reading this has not had horrible days with those symptoms? I know I have. My doctor actually ordered an MRI to try to diagnose the cause of my vertigo.  Negative results.

I’m not trying to alarm anyone with this information, but you might want to talk to your doctor and get an MRI if you have persistent vertigo.

Just saying.

Two of Dan’s Novels Priced at $0.99 for 7 Days!


My novels “Field Piece, Book I: Tehran” and “Death on Delivery” are both on sale on Amazon Kindle from Thursday July 3 through Wednesday July 9 for only 99¢ each.  Take advantage of this special pricing if you haven’t read these novels.

Field Piece, Book I: Tehran — When a CIA agent is murdered in Tehran, 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.  Well, Steve Walker goes in, but he finds a hot woman, gets into a lot of trouble, and kills a bad guy.  You know, sometimes you just can’t play by the rules.

Death on Delivery — 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.  Is someone setting him up?  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!)
