ICE HUNTERS

“A taut cat-and-mouse game with potent characters” – Kirkus Reviews

In the blink of an eye, a fisherman’s idyllic vacation turns into a terrifying struggle for survival. One moment he is trout fishing a remote river in the icy mountains of New Zealand. The next, he witnesses a cold-blooded drug-related murder and finds himself on the wrong end of a manhunt.

As he tries to contend with starvation and the harsh and uncompromising wilderness, Ryan must also deal with killers on his trail and the turmoil within his frightened and malnourished mind.

Meanwhile, Auckland detectives are hunting the drug-dealers themselves, suspecting that the organized crime syndicate is behind a rash of deaths related to the manufacture and distribution of crystal meth (ice), including that of an innocent teenage schoolgirl. The detectives’ investigation and the fisherman’s ordeal collide in the rocky, forested wilderness, where a brazen Maori police officer must salvage justice from lawlessness.

Ice Hunters is a fast-paced, chilling thriller that pits one man against nature and his fellow humans, and simultaneously weaves an important warning about illicit drugs into a gripping survival story. Set against a backdrop of the beautiful but unforgiving Southern Alps, the novel delivers danger and suspense from all sides.

Abbie had been treating two victims of the Chabot rapist who targeted girls and as she’s making progress in their care, unbelievably, someone abducts and strangles them. Their deaths devastate Abbie. During Abbie’s difficult recovery, memories of past events gradually return. They are fragmentary and torture her with memory flashes and nightmares. Gradually, she begins to suspect that one of her adult patients may be the strangler. When the police find Abbie’s prime suspect brutally murdered, both she and the police are befuddled. Abbie struggles to discover the identity of the strangler and those who may be abetting his actions. Will he/they get away with it? From 5 star review: This book has some very sensitive topics but sometimes these topics need to be addressed. The author wrote a wonderful crime thriller that kept you on your toes every minute. I couldn’t put the book down. It just kept those pages turning and turning.

First Do No Harm

The first and the most popular in the Brier Hospital series: If you believe that television, movies, or medical fiction, accurately portray what it’s like to be an acute care physician or a critically ill patient in a hospital today, think again. Dr. Joseph Polk is an intelligent, charismatic, and powerful member of the medical staff at Brier Hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area. This once brilliant physician, a functional psychopath for most of his career, has decompensated. Nurses and front-line physicians see Polk’s indifference, incompetence, and stubborn cruelty, but the medical staff and the hospital administration are willfully blind. Patients suffer, and worse. Jack Byrnes has finally completed his training in Intensive Care Medicine and joins Brier Hospital’s medical staff. Jack has been well trained to care for patients, but he’s woefully unprepared to deal with Joe Polk, the medical staff, enraged nurses, and the hospital’s administration. The strength of First, Do No Harm lies in the authenticity of the medical setting and the struggles of patients and physicians. Joe Polk is a very different kind of villain.

Legacy Of Ashes

“The ways of the old world belong in history books…”

—Lexi Shaw

It’s the dawn of a new age in Triangle City.

Built atop the ashes of Research Triangle Park, the city bursts at the seams with high-tech smart glasses, pulse weapons, and hover bikes. But outside the walls, the world has regressed into a colonial free-for-all where it’s every man and woman for themselves, and a raider army waits in the wings to take all for which the city has struggled.

Inside the walls, men driven by greed corrupt the system to enjoy unyielding power at the expense of the meek, while exposing the last bastion of advanced civilization to the looming threats beyond.

Lexi Shaw plans to change that.

Sacrificing the comfort of the mountain compound community she has established over 100 years, the genetically-altered Shaw and the members of her mysterious foundation have infiltrated Triangle City and the dystopian OK City to exact change, to place power in the hands of those who deserve it so they never see the bloody horrors of a civilization’s fall again.

Can one, unlikely team stand between a city’s survival and total extinction?

Legacy Of Ashes is a sprawling Science Fiction tale for readers who enjoy slowly unfolding, mysterious plot lines with strong characters, exciting combat, and a glimpse into the future of technology.

The Accounts of Benny’s Diner and Other Stories

People from all around the world are being drawn to a point in their lives which could cost them eternity. And at Benny’s Diner, small coincidences are finding June a waitress closer and closer to the conception of the end of the world. After her fiancé confides in her concerning the end of days, June must reconcile her ways to God in penance form.

With a wit and a different perspective of the end times D. F. Lopez, finds a simple meeting in time, the rapture, to be one of wonder, fun, conviction, and warning for all.

Discloser: Only simple terms of the end times are expressed here, in understanding that much confusion and distortion concerning this period of time is evident already. The rapture, a word not used in the Bible (but it’s event is), reminds us of the awesome God and resilience of His creation. Other than a few references to the two witnesses (and a strange twist) most accounts are in light of the God Breathed inspired scriptures.
