Dick Wiener's Caribbean Christmas: An Overstuffed Sequel - ASIN B08C27PTRZ

“A riotous, explosive adventure novel—as hilarious as it is action-packed”

– Joelene Pynnonen, Independent Book Review

There’s trouble in paradise…and hilarious fun!


Dick Wiener traveled back in time and saved the world. Now, he just wants some rest and relaxation. But there’s trouble lurking beneath the turquoise waters near Cayo Pene. 


A mutiny on Dick’s prized new yacht, the Salty Surprise, leaves the toilet-salesman-turned-hero marooned in the tropics, with his family missing. When Dick crosses paths with benevolent drug smuggler and foodie Chavo Cortes, their stories intertwine over a cheeseburger, a half-ton of cocaine and a misplaced hand grenade.


They’re joined by Busty Bixby, an adult film star and assassin, and Father McKill, a hitman for Jesus, who show up in a storm of bullets with Wiener’s name on them. But nothing is what it seems on this imperfect getaway. They’ve all plunged neck deep into a sinister Caribbean conspiracy masterminded by a shadowy figure from Dick’s murky past. With his family in jeopardy and the birthday of the Lord approaching, Wiener must enlist a band of heroic misfits, murderers and fools to fight back.


Facing pirates, profiteers, a drug kingpin and the world’s most dangerous man—a deranged nuclear sub captain—who all aim to scuttle Dick’s dream vacation, how can Dick save Christmas, and save his family from a watery grave? The answer is to kick some ass…again.


If you enjoy the tropical vibes of Jimmy Buffett, the seat-of-your-pants action of Clive Cussler and the oddball comedy of Douglas Adams, this is the epic adventure you’ve been waiting for…


“A bewildering feat of mayhem, madness and turbulent tumescence wrapped-up in one of the most exhaustingly funny books I’ve ever read.”

– Jonathan Harries, Author, “Killing Harry Bones”

When planning revenge, the first step is to dig two graves.

From the book:
He didn’t even notice Bill Prince step up behind him until he felt the tap on his shoulder. As he turned, he didn’t see the fist of the former special operator, now Special Forces Instructor until it had almost made contact with the side of his face. Everything went dark for a moment.
When he regained consciousness, he was lying face down on the ground being cuffed.
“Whoever you are, you are making a mistake and you are about to be in big trouble. I suggest you let me go,” Agent Sky shouted.
“Not a chance, Serpico. You have a lot of questions to answer.”
“You’ll find my shield and ID in my back-left pocket. You need to let me up now.”
Bill dug in the pocket and pulled out his ID case.
“Agent Antonio Sky of the NEA. Hmm. Well, Sky, we have a problem. More specifically, YOU have a problem.”
Bill Prince hauled the man roughly to his feet. His wrists were still cuffed behind him.
“Before you get any ideas, Agent Antonio Sky of the NEA, I need you to look down at your chest. See the dot?”
He saw the laser dot painted on his chest.
“About three hundred yards from here is a very angry man with that laser. It is attached to his rather beautiful Barrett M82 rifle. About two inches below that laser is a fifty caliber BMG round. You need to understand that it will go through your vest as easily as it would a t-shirt.
“You also need to understand that the same government you work for trained him with the motto, ‘one shot, one kill.’ And for him, three hundred yards is close range. That is the long way of telling you not to be a hero.”

The exciting conclusion to Planning Vengeance – Broken Path Book 1. Paul’s path leads him further and further into the darkness. Will he be able to drag Jack and Amy along with him to his dark place, or will their friends and family be able to save them?
Follow along on the roller-coaster ride. There is more action, high-speed driving, guns, cars and even a little more romance.

The cornerstone of courage is optimism.

In 1992, at the end of the Cold War, Steven Myers became the first American since Charles Lindbergh in 1931, to pilot an aircraft into the Russian Kamchatka peninsula. There he formed one of the first post-Soviet era joint ventures—a pioneering, expansive, business enterprise with the potential to transform the lives of the people of the Russian Far East. 
 
Steve’s remarkable true story recounts the dramatic adventure, courageous entrepreneurship, and intrigue in the creation of a breakthrough business in a remote corner of the world, a wonderous place few people have been to or know anything about.

The underlying theme of the story is the clash of two vastly different cultures:   Americans, with go-for-broke, entrepreneurial “can do” attitudes, and Russians with a long, painful history of constraining rules, risk aversion, and fear. 

After years of hard work, just as the enterprise is about to achieve breakthrough success, an unexpected warning by US government agents alerts Myers that his life is in danger if he continues with his business activities in Russia. How he reacts, and what he does next, provides a gripping, dramatic climax to the story. 
 
 A timeless exploration of human conflict, determination, and power, this book will inspire adventurers, aviators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, and diplomats to push past their fears and take command of their dreams. After all, “the cornerstone of courage is optimism.”

Welcome. “Paranormal powers” refers to the utilization of consciousness in a manner enabling a person to influence a physical system without direct physical interaction, a capacity increasing recognized in the academic and scientific communities as part of the field of human ability.

This book contains detailed accounts of explorer M.G. Hawking’s experiences and conversations with true practitioners of paranormal abilities, including first-hand narratives of their demonstrations of psychokinetic and extrasensory powers, and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge and practices that enable the attainment of such exceptional abilities.

Although widely acknowledged in India, Nepal, Tibet and various Himalayan areas of Asia, paranormal abilities have in the Western World been largely disregarded by the general population. However, in the scientific community the perception is very different. For example, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program, which operates under the aegis of Princeton University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, pursues an agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes, and developing complementary theoretical models to enable a better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of physical reality.

Results of the Princeton experimental studies, along with many similar research projects both private and governmental, have established paranormal abilities as operating at both the macroscopic level (using large-scale apparatus) and at the atomic level (using computerized random number generators). Although the test subjects in general do not believe that they can actually influence outcomes, and have no real idea of how to focus their consciousness to influence the outcomes, over thousands of experimental runs the results have been far beyond chance expectation, demonstrating that subjects can influence outcomes that deviate significantly from the statistical norm, often by a factor of several billion-to-one. For those familiar with quantum physics, these results come as no surprise.

The knowledge and practices presented in this book arise directly from the teachings of profoundly enlightened individuals. If studied with patience and fully integrated into your core belief system, these teachings can lay the foundation necessary to enable you to acquire abilities that most people would say are unbelievable or even impossible. Yet nothing explained in this volume is supernatural or supernormal or beyond the ability of a properly equipped individual. These abilities are not miracles. Quite the contrary. They do not require any capacities that are not inherent in the human species as a whole, if those capacities are properly recognized and developed.

As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable book for anyone seeking greatly enlarged knowledge and personal power. 2020 Edition, includes an extensive Source and Additional Material Section. Kindle e-reader page count 350 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book.

Chapters Include: Insights Regarding the Practitioners; Background of the Practitioners; The Ultimate Nature of Reality; The Physical World as Symbols; The Potential of Power and Knowledge; Fundamental Understandings; Advanced Understandings; Utilizing Etheric Energy; Visualization Practice; Reflections on the Teachings; Planck, Schrödinger, Einstein, Bohr, Pauli, Wheeler.
