Pirates In Kansas

by Jason Finley

PIRATES IN KANSAS follows a group of former US Army Special Forces soldiers, now civilians, as they contract their unique services in the troubled waters off the Somali Coast. Piracy in Somalia has become a way of life, and for Brennan Donnelly and his team, a way to make money.

The group spent the majority of their military career in the troubled African region, specifically in Somalia and Sudan. Taking their in-depth knowledge of the area, the team now makes a small fortune working for insurance companies. Retrieving wealthy individuals from pirated yachts, or dropping ransoms for recovery, the crew does what most people would never dream of doing, or more accurately, attempt.

While Brennan struggles between his feelings of isolation and a new found obsession, he finds himself in the middle of a very volatile situation between two extremely corrupt and powerful organizations. Now, the team must do whatever it takes to make sure they stay alive, while trying to keep their ethical beliefs intact.

Flesh And Blood

by Michael Lister

John Jordan is back—investigating eternal mysteries woven into the fabric of everyday life. Within the confines of seemingly ordinary cases, John explores the ineffable and inexplicable, the profoundly mysterious within the mundane.

In this diverse collection of cases, John investigates the Shroud of Turin, a pregnant virgin, a daring prison break, a Hurricane Katrina orphan who might just be the Second Coming, a desperate woman who sleeps with one too many men, a bloody body on the rec yard, a mystery that turns on a single observation, and a murder in which John himself is the prime suspect—all this as he deals with depression and battles alcoholism.

These stories are puzzles, whodunits, and enigmas, but they are much more. John Jordan doesn’t just solve crime, he investigates the hidden heart of humanity and the mysterious world in which we live. Here are temporal answers and eternal questions, and at the center of it all, a conflicted man of faith and doubt, flawed, but faithful, who ministers mercy even as he thirsts for justice.
