The demonstrators were jubilant as they recalled the damage done by their heroes on 9/11. They made speeches condemning the Great Satan, promised holy war and burned the flag of our country. Most of the city’s population was unaware of the event, but others were very aware of it and were preparing reprisals.

Young FBI agent, Kurt Muller, decided to take himself out for lunch one day, a wise decision. He fell madly in love with the waitress, Deena. He returned for a second lunch which did not go well because neither Kurt nor Deena could find the courage of commitment. Kurt did not return for a third time but Deena sets out to track him down. She succeeds in her search and a wonderful romance begins.

Kurt’s training officer at the NYPD is Kim Kahn who has been informed, by a friend at the CIA, that there is evidence of a planned terrorist attack against the city. As Kim works to prevent the attack, she learns that Deena may be affiliated with the terrorist that are planning the attack. Things go badly for Deena.

It is confirmed that the planning for the attack is underway and Kim needs to learn the how, when and where of the attack if she is to foil it. For reasons known only to herself, Deena decides to help Kim in her battle with the terrorists.

The success or failure of the attack is not the end of the story. Life for those involved takes some unusual turns.

The Nile Queen is a story involving two of the world’s greatest universities – the world’s oldest Al Azhar of Cairo, Egypt, and one of America’s greatest universities, the University of Chicago. The United States Department of State under the direction of Mrs. Clinton initiated a cultural exchange between the two great universities to enhance the relations between the two countries. America is not popular with the Egyptian people, with polls indicating that 65percent of Egyptians do not look favorably upon the United States. Mrs. Clinton is using this approach to create a better understanding between the two cultures.

The Egyptian contingent is headed by a brother and sister team – Amana and Moese Krafar. They each received their MD degrees from Oxford, the great English University.

Amana is a beautiful lady, popularly referred to by her adoring public as the “Nile Queen”. She and Moese are active teaching in their profession within the Al Azhar University.

The FBI is alarmed in knowing of the agreement between the two universities, fearing that the Egyptian delegation may be infiltrated with radical Islamic members, who may wish to use this exchange to plot injury to the United States within the Great Lake area of Chicago.

The story deals with this possibility, and what the FBI used to counter this danger.

None of their friends appreciated Hidden Island. That was something Caroline and Scott learned early on. Caroline’s school friend, Althea, attempted to define the uneasy feeling that came over her each time she visited the cabin. “I want to like it, for your sake, but... it’s eerie Caroline,” she whispered, shivering a little. “There’s a feeling of sinister possibilities here.” She turned to Caroline, and with her usual drama-queen style narrowed her eyes and warned, “Always be very careful here.”

Hidden Island is a tale of murder and mystery that will engulf the reader from the very first page. This is a book the reader will never forget...

This Northern Branches story is of a family from the Orkney Islands off the northern tip of Scotland. They immigrated to Missouri under mysterious circumstances. Margaret Anne is the fifth generation of Camerons who have lived in Missouri. She was fulfilling her long cherished dream of spending the summer in Kirkwall before starting graduate school in the fall. A message arrives telling of the death of her grandfather in Missouri. She ends her vacation and returns home on the first available flight.

She reconnects with Luke Sinclair, her childhood friend, whose family live on the adjoining ranch. Margaret Anne and Luke each lived in St. Louis during the year. Luke was a professor of archeology and Margaret Anne was starting work on her master’s degree in history.

The following summer they returned to Orkney and started working on the mystery surrounding Margaret Anne’s family. They soon confirmed what Margaret Anne had long suspected. The threads of the Cameron and Sinclair families had been entwined for many generations. Family threads continued through the warp and woof of life, weaving a continuous tapestry of the power of family ties. Their search for information took them to Bergen, Norway and there they discovered a link to France. Slowly the mystery unraveled as they worked their way through bits and pieces of information between their home in America and the Orkneys.
