24/7 Presidential election focus, but when Security outranks Democracy, fact may be stranger than fiction.
The Middle East is still untamed and Iran teases the nuclear button. Time to finish the game, they say, it is now or never.
Good Americans would be grateful, but they won’t ever need to know.
10% OF ALL BOOK PROFITS ARE DONATED TO THE SIXTY-NINTH REGIMENT HISTORICAL TRUST
FROM THE BACK COVER:
2012. War weary Americans hail the endgame in Iraq and Afghanistan.
But the old enemy, Iran, is more dangerous than ever.
So the war on terror continues, but it must be kept in the shadows now. The Presidential machines cannot allow a mistake, there is an election to be won.
Con Maknazpy is weary too, still searching for his own peace. A hero in his native New York’s famous 69th Regiment, he just wants to retreat into the shadows of the streets he knows so well.
But Maknazpy is no ordinary man, he has been anointed with destiny. It’s in his blood and in the shadows of his soul. And the ghosts of the past and the future mark out that destiny, in blood. Blood that takes him to Ireland, Rome and Istanbul before he finds his own truth in the shadows of his Yonkers childhood.
Maknazpy’s destiny is to be a savior, but can he save himself?
It’s the old story. Deadly enemies, cultures so alien that neither can tolerate the other’s very existence. The essence of ancient myth and legends, from the epic Shahnameh of Iran in the east, to the Táin of the Irish in the west. We have always created such righteous truths to validate our own worlds, so that our way is virtuous, theirs is immoral.
Maknazpy knows about the War on Terror. Nuclear Iran. Homeland Security. If he survives long enough, Maknazpy can finally decide which truth, which world, is real.
Think Jim Thompson, James M Cain, Chester Himes and Eric Ambler. Reality is warped by confusion and lies, and the hero is always the last to know.
From the reviewers:
“Red herrings abound, and false leads. The Turkish sections become very intricate, so the busy plot demands patience amidst the threats and mayhem, as in the midst of rapid movements and conversations with which I sought to keep up. Similarly, its New York scenes turn as energetically as a quickly edited sequence from a film such as ‘The Bourne Identity’.” – Review from Fionnchú, Los Angeles, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer.
“Whether it’s through this literary subtext or whether it’s through the strengths in the writing itself, Blood From A Shadow does have an indefinable quality and true originality, finding a way to delve into a particularly Irish sensibility that has deep historical and mythological roots in its connection with the United States, and it places an unusual spin on a conventional genre that at times gives it an almost otherworldly quality.” – Review from Keris Nine, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
“BLOOD FROM A SHADOW, with several distinctively drawn and interesting characters, is fast-paced with a super abundance of sub-plots, story line twists, and gritty violence to satisfy any aficionado of the genre.” — – Joseph Haschka – Glendale, CA, USA, Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor
Here’s the set-up:
What if you had a chance to ask a loved one for forgiveness – after they died? What would you say? Would you give up your own lifetime of happiness for someone else?
Michael Stewart confronts these questions as he travels back in time through a mysterious tunnel in an old church when the Romans ruled with brutal violence and Jesus preached his peaceful message.
His teenage daughter Elizabeth soon follows Michael, but is surprised to discover that her ather is nowhere to be found. Little does she know that Michael has returned safely to the present, leaving her to battle a vicious Roman soldier.
Separated by centuries, Michael is trapped to fight his own battles in the present day. Elizabeth’s disappearance, and the discovery of her blood in his car ignites a rush of judgment as the FBI focuses on him as a person of interest. Michael’s only hope for saving his daughter rests in the hands of his best friend – a local pastor with secrets of his own – and a mysterious old journal containing tales of miracles within the walls of the old church itself.
Thrilling and suspenseful, Everybody’s Daughter takes readers on a miraculous journey of their own, where salvation can be found in acts of sacrifice and hope remains forever eternal through the passage of a tunnel.

Praise for Angel Dance…
“The intensity continues to build. Just when you think you have it solved, Grayson throws you a wild curve. It was an excellent read. I highly recommend it.”
Author, Terrorists at the Bus Stop
“Angel Dance was so much fun to read that I completed it in one day in Cape Cod on vacation. In fact, I resented anyone who interrupted my reading time!”
Gina Fiore – beautiful Seattle heiress has vanished.
A foreign drug cartel and a Chicago organized crime family are looking.
Can Danny Logan rescue her before the noose closes?
More praise for Angel Dance…
“Stuart Woods WAS one of my favorite authors, with the ability to put an unexpected twist to the story, but look out, first time novelist MD Grayson has written a smart and colorful page turner. I never thought I would enjoy a wild ride through drug cartels and crime families, but a weekend read, turned into a book I could not put down….. Can’t wait for the next book!”

- Did you always dream of working at home, but couldn’t find a legitimate job?
The idea for Killer Work from Home Jobs: Fortune 500 & Legitimate Work at Home Jobs – How to Make Money Online from Home! came from the fact that I trudged to my job, as manager of someone else’s business, wondering why I wasn’t happy. I was good at what I did, achieved the company’s goals, made good money, received accolades, but something wasn’t right, there was no sense of fulfillment.
I can’t convey the melancholy I felt, I worked hard to achieve success, earned every academic credential, had a resume to swoon over. But I wasn’t a happy camper. Was this all there was?
Once I decided to work at home, it was amazing, I jumped in the air and clicked my feet! Killer Work from Home Jobs: Fortune 500 & Legitimate Work at Home Jobs – How to Make Money Online from Home! is dedicated to all those who just can’t go back to work. In addition to the “I can’t take it any mores” of the world, this book will help many who have other compelling reasons, as well. The need to work from home runs deep. Taking the first step to working at home will make you jump for joy. Reading this book will mean you’re one step closer to your goal. Dorothy got it right, “There’s no place like home!”

The two girls meet in high school and form an uneasy friendship that lasts through college. Eva wants power, profit – and Marta’s husband. She offers to fund Marta’s public health dreams in exchange for the ailing physician’s knowledge of plant-based medicines. Together, they build NMech, which becomes the world’s largest nanotech manufacturer.
When the unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on NMech for survival, only Marta can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But Marta is a healer, not a fighter, and must rely on her husband and teenaged son, a boy who faces a life-or-death challenge well beyond his years.
Little Deadly Things is the place where science meets the psyche, where the world’s fate rests in the hands of a madwoman and in the lives of the family that must stop her.
“… a work of descriptive art, with a sense of futuristic realism. I was riveted, page after wonderful page.” -Thomas M. Cirignano, 67 Cents: Creation of a Killer
“…A union of art and science in this thriller… marvelous characters amidst an age of nanotechnological advancement. Harry Steinman rips today’s discoveries from the laboratory and into an emotion-laden thriller with the promise—and peril—of this emerging science. –L. R. Drennan-Harris, Ph.D. Analytical Chemist
“…Little Deadly Things introduces the brilliant but psychotic Eva Rozen, a Boston scientist tormented by both her past and her present. Her mystery and madness propel the reader, revealing surprises at every turn.”– Deborah Swiss, The Tin Ticket
Harry Steinman’s life experience includes stints as a box boy in a toilet paper factory, security guard, hippie commune leader, recruiter in a toy factory, substitute math teacher, accountant, New Age religious community troublemaker, headhunter, and dog trainer—the textbook background of a novelist. Today, Harry gets by while at work on All Dead Generations, the sequel to Little Deadly Things.

(D. G. Speirs)
Steve Tate and Amy Rogers are Talents – people cursed with an extra ability gifted to them through tragedy – for Amy, the death of her adoptive parents in a car crash that she alone survived; for Steve, the brutal murder of his sister and mother. Each thinks they are alone and unique, until the day their paths cross in the Bahamas – when Steve discovers the woman who murders Amy’s boyfriend in front of them is the same one from his past.
Chasing this killer plunges Steve and Amy headlong into a much larger conflict – a fight led by TRIANGLE, an organization that works in the shadows to keep humanity safe from all types of chaos. Triangle wants this woman as badly as Steve and Amy do, but for an even more urgent reason – she’s after the False Mirror, one of Triangle’s most dangerous projects, a device that in the wrong hands is capable of destroying the world as we know it.
Now Steve and Amy must quickly learn to work together as they pursue their quarry across the globe, from the deserts of New Mexico to San Francisco Bay and beyond. But even as they draw closer to her, they discover clues that she may hold the key to an even greater mystery…
Who they really are.
TRIANGLE: FALSE MIRROR is a fun, high-speed thriller that jumps straight out of today’s headlines, races around the globe at a breakneck pace, yet also questions how much we take for granted about the way things work, and how vulnerable that makes us all.
