The protagonist faces several assassination attempts and a life threatening encounter in Australia’s Outback. His dog, Daisy is reintroduced along with characters from previous stories. The reader will be reminded of our country’s history through walks on Boston’s Freedom Trail. The Molina Curse provides tantalizing moments “Down Under”, as well as aboard a cruise ship from Sydney to New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji and Hawaii. A love affair is tested and Charles Stone’s life is in peril throughout until the curse is lifted by complying with mysterious forces within the Vatican.

Don’t let the nostalgic title Sentimental Me fool you. This fast paced travel mystery is a true gem. It takes Boston lawyer, Charles Stone to Agua Prieta, Mexico to see why a slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent made a woman with known Drug Cartel connections the beneficiary of his $500,000 life insurance policy. Stone was often called in by the Franklin Life Insurance Company to investigate what they referred to as “exotic cases.” He recently returned from an assignment in Ireland involving the Real IRA and a notorious international arms dealer. Exposing fraudulent activity almost cost him his life. Needing a little R&R, he accepted the retainer and hoped the trip to Arizona and the Mexican border city would not be as dangerous, but nothing Franklin Life assigned him had ever been a “piece of cake”. This investigative journey, rich in descriptive side events, introduces the reader to murder, drugs, arms smuggling and the powerful people who make it all happen. It is a ride to hell and back.

Publisher: Outskirts Press (February 21, 2011)
ISBN-10: 1432769863, ISBN-13: 978-1432769864

Charles Stone, Boston lawyer and sculptor is retained again by Franklin Life Insurance Company. This time it is more than another dangerous investigative assignment, but one that involves saving the insurance company from financial collapse. Stone confronts Lucas “Luke” Simon, a prominent Mormon insurance executive turned sadistic self proclaimed prophet of a Utah polygamist sect. The confrontation is further complicated by the revengeful acts of a previous antagonist, Brigadier General Jane Meyers. Occult side events, romantic encounters and Southwest adventures add greater intrigue and dimension to this travel mystery. The reader and reviewer should be aware this dual genre allows the author to use greater details, flashbacks and delayed action. Be patient and you will be rewarded.
