The US never leaves a soldier behind. Almost never. 

After a failed black ops mission in the dark days of the Afghanistan War, desert tribesmen return a wounded American soldier. After months of rehabilitation for a broken back and a damaged spirit, Phil Pfeiffer returns to civilian life as a private detective tracking cheating spouses and bail jumpers. 

When a philandering husband goes missing, however, nothing is right with the investigation or the search for the husband’s body. After the insurance company is forced to pay off, the widow spots her husband’s photo in a celebrity magazine and sends Pfeiffer to unravel the mystery. Before he can, the absent man dies a second time this time leaving the detective fighting for his own life.

Camelot Games


Dear Curious Readers,

The Wild Rose Press released Camelot Games, in April 2015. 

A meteoric career awaits the dynamic son and lovely daughter of California field workers. Winning election after election, the kingmaker proclaims the time is right and the sky’s the limit. Cast in the image of John and Jacqueline Kennedy’s bygone era come hints of the nation’s first Latino presidency.

Just when life seems most promising, the senator’s beautiful aide goes missing. Rumors abound. Storm clouds darken personal horizons while three thousand miles away, an unwitting fisherman stumbles upon her pregnant corpse. The media whips speculation into accusation just as the senator’s plane goes missing.

As revelations drive conjecture, the country’s electrical grid comes under a furious hacker attack. But from whom? Words of the absent senator’s warning prove prophetic when the nation plunges into a chaos that threatens a second and far uglier American Civil War.

Levant Mirage

Trailer Link for Levant Mirage – Levant Mirage Trailer

Levant Mirage exposes more than just fifteen hundred years of religious turmoil. The world faces a grim choice–submit to the demands of terrorists or face mass obliteration. Adam Michaels, son of a jet-setting mother and a heroic Syrian father is exonerated for his part in the bloodiest day of America’s longest war. Yet when he returns home, neither forgiveness nor understanding greet him. His ambitious and politically connected wife files for divorce, a conspiracy in the halls of the Pentagon places a target squarely on his back, and a Broadway actress believes she has fallen in love with him.

When a secret PhD dissertation is inexplicably declassified, Adam becomes the most hated man in the terrorist’s world. Believing he might hold the key to thwart a theocratic society of subjugation, a splinter group of ISIS attempts to kidnap or at the very least, kill him. With a billion lives in the balance as the planet crumbles, Adam makes a choice that few understand and fewer will forgive.

Taken from our daily headlines, the research, people, and places of Levant Mirage are real although the work is fiction. Historical figures, groups, and concepts give the novel a classic feel much like Leon Uris’ Mila 18 and Michener’s The Source.

The size and breadth of the book attract informed readers, those who receive news from evening television, print media, and the internet services. An easy read for a few days business travel or a weekend getaway of late nights, Levant Mirage secures its place as a thriller with enough suspense to keep the reader turning the pages and guessing to the end.
