70-something Oreny “Big” Johnson has a problem. Actually, he has two. Or maybe three. The first is that he’ll be dead from cancer, less than a year, which doesn’t particularly concern him: “The things I’ve been through, dying is just one more page in a long bad book.” But spending his last living days, taking his last living breath, behind steel bars does. That’s the second problem: Inmate #78903 in the notorious level-four Washington State prison known as Horseneck Bay.

Then there’s the money. Two million dollars of stolen military payroll, supposedly buried in some remote and mysterious south-Texas mountain range called Los Despoblados, or The Uninhabited, which sounds to Oreny like one of those places his mama Maybell always told him to avoid. But he’ll worry about that later. He has to get there first. Problem number three.

That’s when he brings those two smoldering dynamite sticks he’s attached himself to—his Luke-boy and Jaime—on board to help his tired old body break out of Horseneck and go dig up that money and then hightail it across the border into Mexico. And when they do break out, and Luke decides to bring his girlfriend Lauren along, and her enraged ex comes after them, and then the manhunt starts multiplying faster around them than those cancer cells inside him, Oreny still thinks he can control them. The problems, that is. At least, until Cade arrives.

Cade, the prison investigator Oreny knows is dangerous and unpredictable as a six-foot-two wolverine on eight gallons of adrenalin gone bad. And who won’t stop until he catches them and does to them what Cade does best.

Cade, Oreny knows better than anything else, is their biggest problem of all.

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.

Illusive Storm: A Murder Mystery Thriller

A storm, a group of strangers, a murder, and one question—who’s next?

Forced into a motel to shelter from a storm, the group couldn’t be more different; a family on the brink of collapse, a man with a dark secret, a bankrupt private investigator with a gambling problem, a priest searching for his brother, a couple of friends, the counter clerks… none of them seem capable of murder. But with a body on the floor and suspicions mounting, it’s time to figure out who the killer is before someone else winds up dead.

Is the heavily tattooed and pierced up man the killer? He’s clearly hiding something.

Everyone turns to the P.I. for answers. With the cell towers down, her best advice is for everyone to stay in their rooms until the storm is over and they can call in help. So when hormones take over and a tryst leads two of them to make out in the lobby, the pair is stunned to see familiar faces on T.V. Apparently they also have armed criminals in their midst…

When the storm passes, it will all be much clearer — or not.

A serial killer. A troubled young woman. An unlikely suspect.

Minneapolis TV research assistant, Gina Adams, devotes her life to recognizing patterns and anomalies and providing feedback on that.
