He's been injected with a deadly toxin - help him



Read more.   Only 99cts 
I truly enjoyed "The Romanovsky Stain." It is fast-paced and features well-developed characters. As a Vietnam War veteran, I was intrigued by the use of military combat flashbacks to define some of the characters. Hopefully, Duke Zimmer will write a sequel describing Jacob Steiner's next foray into the covert world.  -Phil Riggin

Jacob Steiner left the intelligence world to join the NYPD where he worked until he was recently terminated for over zealous police work -- he beat the crap out of a child molester and broke the molester's skull in the process.  Contemplating a quiet life in Los Angeles, Jacob soon discovers that a lifelong nemesis and former KGB agent, Sergei Romanovsky, has other plans for him. 

Unbeknownst to Jacob, his former partner on the NYPD stole a flash drive from the molester containing information that could lead to an American Coup and a Third World War.   Romanovsky has been ordered by the Russian government to recover the drive no matter what the cost.  In order to persuade Jacob to assist him, Romanovsky kidnaps Jacob and injects him with a deadly neurotoxin.  Jacob's mission, find his partner and receive the antidote or die trying.

Once a spy always a spy; one does not just quit the spy business and even if you try to get out, trouble will always come looking for you. That is what Jacob Steiner was about to discover. After leaving the intelligence world, Jacob had joined the NYPD where he had worked until he was kicked out just recently. Just in case he was wondering what to do with his life after the NYPD, he would wonder no more because a lifelong nemesis of his, former KGB agent Sergei Romanovsky, had plans for him. Jacob's NYPD partner had stolen from the Russians and Romanovsky intended to get back what he had taken, at whatever cost. 

So, what better way to compel Jacob to do the Russians' bidding than by injecting him with a deadly neurotoxin and holding onto the antidoteSo just like that, Jacob finds himself chasing a partner who doesn't want to be found, a neurotoxin running through his blood with only a few days before its fatal effects take their course,and a flock of angry Russians hot on his trail. Racing against time, Jacob starts to put clues together in an attempt to get to the bottom of what was really going on. Initially all signs point to human trafficking, but he is convinced there is more going on because, in his world, there are always layers of conspiracy under layers. Nevertheless, even his wildest imaginings could not have prepared him for what was really at stake here. 

The Romanovsky Stain by Duke Zimmer is the true art of spy thrillers, as they should be told. Duke Zimmer combined a unique and captivating plot and a memorable setting with flawless writing skill to bring to life a fascinating thriller. The descriptive writing style is so engaging and endless adrenaline pumping scenes come to life right off the pages. What is even more engaging is the build up to these scenes with such an incredible story development. I especially liked that the star of the story comes off as genuinely human right from the start. Right away, Duke Zimmer showed that Jacob, with all his years of experience and unmistakable skills, is human with flaws and weaknesses. These vulnerabilities made him human and made it easier to connect with his story. I was also awed by how the story portrayed the lasting bond that connects war veterans together. If you are looking for a good spy thriller, this is it.

Every dog has a story but this one is crazy




Join this pair on their journeys: external and internal, humorous and touching. Laugh with Keisha's flagrant disregard for the law and social convention. Cry with Lily's struggles.  Dip into another level of love and connection. Thirteenth century mystic Rumi once wrote: "

There is a voice that doesn't use words: listen."  Keisha may have a message for us all!

Life in the middle of a big city can be scary. Lily, a young professional living alone in Houston during the mid-1980s, experiences a frightening brush with a near home-invasion. The unsettling episode is the impetus to seek out a home security system: a dog. Fear pushes Lily to purchase her new companion without thinking through the details and she finds the new addition to her life just as unsettling.

Financial struggles, professional challenges, romantic wounds and the trials of being twenty-something all share the tiny apartment with Lily and her new puppy, Keisha. The carefree, adventure-seeking whims of Keisha are at odds with the order-loving, financially challenged Lily.

And yet the irascible dog may be just what the doctor ordered.  Once Keisha trots across the threshold, where weeks before the faceless intruder had sought to gain entry, Lily's life opens up in new, at times exasperating, ways and the adventures begin.

Is it a gift or a curse?




Is it a gift or a curse?
Pain rips through her body and bores deep into her soul. It vibrates to the tips of her toes and to the fingertips. Even to the ends of her long dark hair. She needs it to stop because it could kill her. How can she make it stop? Has she ever felt this kind of pain? She can't remember. All she knows is that it is killing her now. Why? Can't she be strong?
     Pain rips through her body and bores deep into her soul. It vibrates to the tips of her toes and to the fingertips. Even to the ends of her long dark hair. She needs it to stop because it could kill her. How can she make it stop? Has she ever felt this kind of pain? She can't remember. All she knows is that it is killing her now. Why? Can't she be strong?
     It is embarrassing, and she wants to know why people cause pain in other people. It's not right. Do they honestly think that they can get rid of their pain by projecting it onto someone else? It's not fair. Make it stop. She thinks she should be able to stop it, but realizes that if it is not her responsibility, though, who would do it? She should be strong enough. She knows she is different. Not because she feels pain- everybody feels pain. But wait! Narcissists don't feel pain. And they want to feel normal which they can't– and aren't.       
     Imagine a world –even if it were just your own personal world– without pain. She knows she is different because she feels other people's pain. It burns like it is burning in her now. She cries. She must do something to help others stop hurting and now she feels the pain spreading through her own body, heart, and soul. She doesn't know how to make it stop but she knows she must find out. People cannot survive pain like this! We are only human. Think of all the things people do to relieve pain. The pain is a wide-open white space; searing, moving, flexing, and reshaping itself. She needs to enter it, but it hurts, really hurts, to try to move into it. Because she is different.
     Carly is an empath. She feels other people's pain. She is acutely aware of being different than most people but has no idea what to do about it. If it isn't enough to be in constant turmoil because the world is so full of maliciousness, hate, and evil, 
     Carly seems to have no trouble finding plenty of pain of her own. She is a joyous soul yet deeply intuitive and introspective. 

What will she do with her gift, if you can call it that? 
How will she survive the trials and challenges 
that she walks right into all the time?
 Can a person so sensitive tolerate so much ill will? 

     All Carly has ever done is love. She loves to learn and grow. She loves all people, big and small, dark or light, sad or happy. She is as close to being free of judgement and prejudice as a person can be. But Carly is a sociopath magnet. Maybe these emotional vampires sense her strong sensitivity and empathy. Perhaps Carly is a target because she is genuinely good. The problem is: Carly has no idea how to defend herself or fight back.
     Carly is catapulted head first into a nightmare. This nightmare, however, is really happening. Or is it?
