A Felony of Birds

Filed under: Author Interviews — harristob @ 1:04 pm

This exciting novel is told in three interlocking stories that take the reader from the jungles of Costa Rica to the wilderness of Wisconsin’s Northern forests. It’s one heart pounding adventure after another for a new kind of female hero–an intelligent, sensitive Chippewa woman with a mind of her own.
Native American Fish & Wildlife Investigator, Rhoda Deerwalker, finds herself in one harrowing adventure after another. Starting with her rookie assignment to observe a bird smuggling case in rural Wisconsin to her stumbling upon a terrorist plot in the deep woods. She matures and grows and ultimately re-evaluates her career and herself. She retreats to the familiar surroundings of the reservation only to get involved in yet another misadventure—a desperate attempt to shut down a corrupt Indian casino that is exploiting her people. The three stories all mesh together as Rhoda grows, finds romance, and wrestles with who she is and what she wants out of life.

Available from Amazon Kindle and in print

They Plotted Revenge Against America by Abe March

An American attack on Baghdad leaves heartbroken and angry survivors. Two families, one Muslim and one Christian, are wiped out; their young adult progeny are determined to avenge the loss of their loved ones. David Levy, an Israeli Secret Service agent with a grudge of his own, knows just how to tap into the vulnerabilities that grief leaves, and organizes the training of select individuals whose desire for vengeance is strong enough to consider a deadly covert mission in America. Trainees will learn to blend in, disappear in the multicultural mix of the US, and then infest the food and water supply with a deadly flu virus capable of mutating and infecting the human population. The antidote–if it works–will only be revealed under strict demands. Some team members come to realize that they could ultimately be responsible for millions of innocent deaths. Their actions could break the stalemate between the Israelis and Palestinians–or bring on unparalleled tragedy.

Excerpt (page 148):
…Now she expected to endure the same fate at the hands of the security police, as she would have expected in Russia. She bit her lip. Her face took on a determined look. No, she would not give them what they want and they would not break her. Without her knowing it, someone had been sitting in the room observing her. She was startled when the person said,
“How did you come to know David Levy?”
“Who’s to say I know David Levy?”
“Are you denying it?”
“I simply want to know who is saying that I know him. And why was I abducted?”
“I’m asking the questions. You will answer them.”
“I am not required to answer any of your questions. You have kidnapped me and brought me here by force. And why must I remain blindfolded. Are you afraid to show your face?”
“I ask you again, how do you know David Levy?”
“Why do you want to know?”
“You impertinent sow.” He slapped her across the face. Her head snapped back like whiplash. The stinging of the slap was nothing compared to the fury she felt. If only I could get my hands on that person, he would never slap me again, she thought…
