Marie's peaceful life in Virginia is shattered the moment she receives word from her brother: “I just got a call from a detective. Daddy’s dead.” Rushing to her family home in Brooklyn, New York, Marie seeks answers to her father’s mysterious death only to discover disturbing occurrences and encounter acts of betrayal.

Inheriting her father’s scheming ex-girlfriend becomes a journey Marie never imagined she’d be forced to travel. 

Written as memoir, and based on a true story, "Fractured Facade" is a cautionary tale for anyone concerned about a parent after the loss of their spouse. The survivor, often thrust into an unfamiliar world, can find it quite different from the dating scene of their youth; one where some people create facades to mask their true intentions. Sadly, loneliness can cause an otherwise intelligent person to behave foolishly. 

"Fractured Facade" is the tale of a father’s death, a daughter’s life, and a sociopath’s vendetta. 

Author's Note -- Some may find language they deem inappropriate...I don't.

Little Deadly Things
When abusive parents raise brilliant children, you might end up with a saint, or a killer…or one of each.

Little Deadly Things is the place where science meets the psyche, where humanity’s future is in the hands of a madwoman and the woman that must stop her. 

The seeds of an apocalyptic race—to save mankind or to destroy it—were sown in the earliest years of two scientists. Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister's brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. She found refuge from madness in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is the world's richest woman... and the most dangerous.

Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. Her mother’s death and her father's incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta's refuge? A tropical rain forest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties under the tutelage of her shamanistic grandmother.

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 the world's largest nanotech manufacturer.

When the unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on her 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 set just a few years in the future, yet the story’s technology comes directly from today’s laboratories. Here is a chilling look at a future that is already on our doorstep—and a study of the two women who will decide the fate of mankind.

Wiseguys in the Woods
It is the summer of 1989, and the shocking evidence of a mummified murder victim found behind a restaurant wall, a gunshot into a nightclub ceiling and a profitless armed robbery are seemingly unrelated events that all seem to revolve around a secretive middle-aged man who always wears a suit and speaks with an accent. Suddenly, the post card beauty and quiet of the Lake George Region is playing host, as it has in the past, to the Mafia. This, though, is not the Mafia of Godfather movies, but a fast-growing and more sinister version that recruits its members from Italian prisons – the Camorra. As the questions and the bodies begin to pile up, local law enforcement races to respond with forensic personnel from the State Police’s early version of CSI’s, a skilled forensic pathologist for an unusual autopsy, and police colleagues of Peter Drake, including several new ones, working to unravel one mystery only to be faced with another.

Despite all of this help, or perhaps because of it, local First Assistant District Attorney Peter Drake’s biggest worry is that he might let them all down. Peter is a young and unremarkable prosecutor, who has worked in Albany County and has recently moved north. The implications of these cases continue to grow, as they peel away layer after layer of secrets. Secrets that many persons, in and out of government, will kill to protect.

Only recently has it occurred to ADA Drake, that while most crimes listed in the New York’s Penal Law are committed anywhere in the state, there is one form of criminal activity usually confined to the big cities. It has more to do with the nature of the criminals than the nature of the crimes, but traditional organized crime belongs in the large metropolises. The natural habitat for wiseguys and other mobsters here in New York State would be the five boroughs of New York City and, perhaps, Buffalo. Certainly not the boonies of upstate New York, where they would be the big-eyed fish out of water. 

Peter’s own experience tends to bear this out. In his seven years as a prosecutor, he has not seen or heard of any organized crime activity, apart from the odd wannabe, in either the Albany area or here in rural Warren County, where he now works, until now. Sure the drug gangs of the mid 80’s, riding the first massive wave of cocaine into the Capital Region, were organized to an extent and caused no end of problems for an unprepared law enforcement community. Peter is now beginning to realize that there is a world of difference between criminals who are organized and organized crime.

Cupid's Kill
Death arrives in diverse delivery methods.

One in particular is a plague to the detectives of the Marcona Police Department. A monster has returned, and he won’t rest until his vengeance is complete. Armed with a paralyzing concoction and the tools of his trade, he targets a select few to add to his collection.

Chief Mark Blankenship, along with detectives Brian Jeffers and Kelli Jordan, face off against the madman, hoping to end his bloody path of destruction. 

Unfortunately, they haven't anticipated the killer will sacrifice at all costs, making one of them his prized token…

London, 1979. A new government is about to take power in Britain, and the intelligence services need to be purged.

Roy Nichols is pushing fifty, a little too fond of a drink, and frustrated in his career. He's also in charge of a division of MI5 in which a Soviet mole has been found to be operating. It's his job to identify and expose the enemy agent.

Nichols has two acolytes, both with their strengths and weaknesses. Which if either is the mole? As the shadow of suspicion falls on Nichols himself, he finds the pressure almost more than he can bear, and resorts to an unorthodox method of coping: he starts a diary...

Thrown into the mix are also a terrorist link and some local gang bangers. But the cause of Greg Garrison’s death might be what happens to us all when we’re young. Fantasy, played out, has consequences in the real world.

And he’d better do it quickly, or the new title for the movie will be, “The Quick and the Dead,” with Millard quickly dead.

You think you know me pretty well (an Alex Sedaka thriller)
Previously published as MERCY

San Francisco lawyer Alex Sedaka is surprised when California governor Chuck Dusenbury offers eleventh-hour clemency to Sedaka’s Death Row client Clayton Burrow - persuaded to do so by the dying mother of the victim. But there is a condition: Burrow must reveal where he buried body.

The problem: Burrow insists that he is innocent and claims that he was framed by the missing girl herself. Until then, Sedaka – who only recently took over the case – thought that Burrow was guilty. But now that Burrow has rejected the clemency offer, he is not so sure. Thus begins a race against time to unravel the mystery, aided by his secretary, an enigmatic legal intern and his own computer expert son.

Alex finds evidence of school bullying, marital infidelity and even child abuse. But with the clock ticking down to Burrow’s execution, Alex is frustrated at every turn by elusive evidence that casts doubt on Burrow’s guilt, but is not enough to satisfy the rigorous requirements of the courts or the governor at this late stage.

And as the execution looms ahead, the race turns frantic… and dangerous.

Perfect for fans of John Grisham, Scott Turow and Harlan Coben, Mercy is the first in a series featuring US lawyer Alex Sedaka.
