The U.S has created a cutting edge global nuclear management device that has taken over total control of all nuclear warheads on earth thereby ending the threat of a nuclear warfare because only the U.S through Ionshaker can launch a nuclear warhead. 
That’s great right? 
A global terrorist group called Al Fakir soon learns about the Ionshaker capabilities and manages to steal the state of the art device from the U.S. Now the power to start a nuclear powered third world is in the hands of terrorists. 
But what are Al Fakir’s intentions? 
That can only be left to their imagination and Al Fakir’s imagination is America’s nightmare. To make matters worse, other hostile nations including Iran, China, Russia, Pakistan and Syria want to buy the device from Al Fakir. 
What does the future hold for America with all the enemies they have made over the years? 
There is only one way to secure America again. To steal back Ionshaker from the terrorists. 
But how was the Ionshaker stolen from American possession in the first place? What will it take to get the device back? How many people will have to die to get the device back? Can the president survive the political pressure after losing Ionshaker? 

You don’t need to wonder any longer. Instead, delve into the first part of the action-packed, heart-thumping, adrenaline-rushing, scary Ionshaker series. Ionshaker Desperate is only the first book in the four book series. The second book to Ionshaker Desperate is already complete and I'm almost through with the third one.

Mystery Available For Review

The Alcatraz Rose
A Lawrence Kingston Mystery
By Anthony Eglin
Publisher: Larkspur House
ISBN: 978-1502707031
Pages: 236
Genre: Mystery

Three intriguing riddles, two in Britain and one in the U.S., are intertwined, eventually coming together in a skillfully constructed and tautly written, 'thinking person's mystery.'

No sooner than a thirteen-year-old child begs Lawrence Kingston to reinvestigate her mother's disappearance--a case still unsolved for eight years--the redoubtable botanist, professor, and sleuth receives news that an English rose, extinct for half a century, has been discovered growing on Alcatraz island, 5,000 miles from its former home.

As Kingston searches for clues to both mysteries he uncovers the murder of an elderly reclusive gentleman whom he suspects of having firsthand knowledge of the rose. Hampered by a fog of duplicity and lies, his investigation nevertheless leads him to a shocking discovery, the last thing he would ever suspect: a link to one of Britain's most notorious crimes from the distant past.

The Alcatraz Rose is a multi-layered adventure that starts with an innocent cry for help, but turns into a treacherous roller coaster ride that ends with lives hanging in the balance--including Lawrence Kingston's.

Military Espionage Thriller For Review

Melody Hill
By Rick DeStefanis
Published: April 2015
ISBN: 978-1508742166
Pages: 359
Genre: Military/Espionage Thriller

Melody Hill is the exciting prequel to the award winning novel "The Gomorrah Principle." This is Duff's story as he goes off to war in Vietnam leaving behind his mother, sister and best friend Brady Nash.

Duff Coleridge has joined the military and heading to the war in Vietnam. With the instincts of a natural warrior the young paratrooper quickly proves himself a more than capable soldier and is recruited into the shadowy world of black-ops. Despite months of jungle fighting, Duff soon finds counter-espionage is an even more dangerous proposition when he is approached by a female South Vietnamese intelligence operative. Are her advances based on true attraction, or are they merely a means of exploitation? Is this beautiful French-Vietnamese woman, as his CIA boss claims, a Vietcong spy? Duff must depend on his natural intuition and instincts to know who is telling the truth. His CIA boss, who seems more rogue than company man, is dealing arms on the black market when he’s not delivering an arbitrary and ruthless justice to the local populace. Duff realizes he must get out before it’s too late, but only then does he discover he is already trapped in a lethal game of cat and mouse.

Second Life by S.J. Watson

"Before I Go to Sleep" was a story that really made an impression on myself.

So I was very excited to put my hands on a new story.
It was interesting but the characters were not strong enough. 
Worst: the more I was trying to turn the pages, the more I was losing interest in the story.

Very disappointed as I was really expecting to enjoy myself.
