Dangerous Curves Ahead
Working at many levels to recast today's big political questions in a fresh lens, Conundrum grows from the psychological study of Ken, a Wall St. analyst brought down in a market crash, into a kind of meta-democratic polemic led in riotous dialog by the uniquely eloquent Sa.
The conversation, continued in A Stone of Conscience, is sharply revealing of our times and all the more disturbing behind its gossamer veil of the future. Their uncanny story will inform, enchant and inspire you with an enriched sense of the achievable. Go ahead, give it your best read.

In this timely political fiction we meet Ken, a young Wall Street analyst thrown out of work in a major market crash, facing financial and emotional ruin in Empire City, the private corporation Manhattan has become some decades in the future. As Ken spirals down, battling and succumbing to desperation and despair, he is rescued by a uniquely talented young woman with a dedicated revolutionary agenda. Together they form a most extraordinary partnership in a mission to change the world.
Sahar, or Sa for short, is the individual’s individual in many ways, with talents that enable her to spy on the machinations of the world’s richest and most powerful man, on whose Catskill estate, a nerve center to the world, she lives in secrecy. While the wilderness estate has transformed her into an athlete and warrior, the Net, a future amalgam of current technologies, has made her a sophisticated seductress and dissembler, living virtual lives online in the wider world.
In romping dialog with the insightful Sa, Ken returns from the brink of self-destruction and enlists for high pay in her revolutionary enterprise. His job? Multiplying the billions in her political war chest to fund big capitalism's ultimate demise.
Written mostly in the form of brisk dialogue among an unusually intriguing cast of characters, this is the wry, symbolic tale of a consummate revolutionary armed with the know-how and means to turn the tides on the Wall Street political system. The present and future, real and unreal fuel a delightful and scathing bonfire of corporate political culture in America.
A Stone of Conscience
Author Exclusive: Not Available Anywhere Else !
The second book in the series, A Stone of Conscience, continues directly from Ken and Sahar's fitful beginnings in Book One. Here they become odd partners in a duel against the powerful kingpin Wellingham and a consortium of foreign policy interests who desire war and precious resources in hot spots around the world. From the beach house on the British Virgin Islands to which she sends him for a rest, Ken goes to South Asia as double agent for Sa within the Wellingham empire.
On his own, Ken communicates with Sa over the Net, through which routine video calls have expanded business and life into new dimensions, permitting a virtual world in which Sa remotely thrives.
In his mid-seventies, the gruff capitalist, “Old Man” Wellingham, is hosting a board meeting of his private bank, whose members include many power players in their own right, people of influence in and out of government at the highest level. At home among the many rooms of his mansion, Sa has them under surveillance at a time of crisis.
Through her lens on the Manor nerve center and Ken’s eyes and ears in the field, they uncover secrets about world banking, private multinationals, and government manipulation of sovereign affairs which threaten to upset the business and foreign policy applecart for the powerful and dangerous players.
In South Asia and again in South America, they confront government and corporate plans to field and test new WMD technologies against guerrilla insurgents. Sa and Ken risk capture and death as they discover and strive to expose deadly clandestine operations to the world.
