Beyond The Peat Marsh Road (Electronic version)
by Joe Zelicskovics    « View Author's BIO

Synopsis
Beyond the Peat Marsh Road centers on the main character, Steven (Fekete) Black, a successful architect in Toronto who wishes to sell the family farm that his reclusive mother, Maria Fekete refuses to concede to the powerful industrialist, Don Williams.
Mysteriously a sudden interest emerges by land speculators for properties surrounding the polluted Fekete farm.
Black's second mission is to revenge all the old hurts suffered from bullying discrimination in his school years and the interference with his first love, Laura Dawson from his antagonists Lloyd Dudley, now the mayor, and Keith Majors, a prosperous contractor.
Steven meets with Frank Bartok, his cousin the lawyer; Stanley Cibik, a realtor and boyhood friend; and Ross Tyrone, a contractor who was a major force in his early life. Interviews reveal what molded Black into a cold, calculating enigma.
Black resolves to discredit his enemies and gain a profitable advantage over the manipulative Don Williams, the owner of Williams Steel.
A classic story of the meek triumphing over the strong!

Rogue Warriors (Electronic version)
by Dr. Verdun Trione    « View Author's BIO

Synopsis
Rogue Warriors is a gut-wrenching novel about an experiment to train incorrigible Psychopathic youth into mercenaries. Psychopaths, brilliant and without conscience, thumb their noses at standard rehabilitative efforts. This training program capitalizes on the Psychopath?s penchant for violence. The chosen few are offered the opportunity to fight terrorists or do jail time as adults.
The team forms a tough, deadly, mobile strike force. Contracts are obtained and they destroy a terrorist training camp in the Nevada desert; wipe out Skinheads in Idaho; capture and return a murderer from Canada to the United States; assassinate a murderer and child procurer in Venice.
They range the Southwest with lightening strikes over the Mexican border. The Cartel?s illegal trade in drugs, weapons and people is shattered. Despite casualties, CIEL (Central Intelligence and Experimental Laboratory) declares the experiment a success and offers future funding.

The Black Sands of the Karakum (Electronic version)
by Dr. Verdun Trione    « View Author's BIO

Synopsis
Within a period of one hundred years, the Mafia in the United States has undergone change. The change is addressed in this novel. The Western Mafia is a coalition of several Families and is identified as having moved into legitimate gambling and entrepreneurships, including professional. The Eastern Mafia coalition operates on the old values of Omerta and organized secrecy?not untypical of what was transferred from Sicily during the late 1800?s.
Listening to stories of Mafia activities by Eastern and Western Families, he sensed this was a different story. Many books have been written about the Mafia genre. Instead of violence and conflicting Families, he heard about deals in cattle, property, gaming and oil, the same as any legitimate business man. Then, he heard from a casino executive about his interest in the huge reserves of oil under the desert of a country called Turkmenistan. Upon further research, it was evident the author had the makings of a story with two Mafia groups, the Eastern and Western Families?the Eastern Mafia wanting to drill for oil with no regard for the people or heritage of the region.
Written in the rich tradition of The Reluctant Godfather and Rogue Warriors, Dr. Trione?s third novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The Reluctant Godfather (Electronic version)
by Dr. Verdun Trione    « View Author's BIO

Synopsis
A chilling and suspenseful tale of Mafia life drawn from characters the author knew as a child in the Sonoma Valley of California. Others were drawn on relatives in San Francisco, Berkeley, Petaluma, and Pittsburg, California; including the Northern California Coast. Having spent thirty-five years in Las Vegas and other parts of Nevada, he became familiar with the settings and people of that unique state to write this book.
Professor Florio Treponte is told he has inherited his deceased Mafia uncle's Empire. Jolted, he refuses to believe the executives who bring the news to him. Despite his protestations, he is advised "it's an offer he can not refuse". His uncle, Don Quattro has had him under protective surveillance for the past two years. He must now move to his uncle's Villa on the edge of Las Vegas.
Attacked at the Villa; dodging assassins; avoiding arrest on false charges of murder, Florio flees to the mountains with his aide Huicksi, a Hopi, who protects him.
Florio undergoes a painful epiphany. A change occurs in his perceptions and character while grappling with the challenges and obstacles he's faced. He skillfully masterminds and puts into motion events crushing the Families who have sought his demise. He emerges from being an idealistic professor to a tough, decisive, Draconian, but compassionate Godfather who earns the "respect" of all other Mafia Families.
