As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.

Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.

When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn’t love the man who made her proud of her true self?

A dubious trader dies of a medical drug overdose administered by his physician Nehesy. A clear case, or so it seems. Nehesy is sentenced to five years in the stone pits—which few survive. However, the condemned man’s daughter Ouseret, a doctor herself, believes her father is innocent.

Eager to win his beloved’s heart, Hori jumps at the chance to acquit Nehesy. Together with Nakhtmin and Mutnofret, he travels to Waset where the ominous death occurred.

What role does the beautiful maid Nofru play?

Soon more corpses turn up in Hori and Nakhtmin’s path, while Ouseret keeps some information to herself. Until their own lives are at stake…

Where did it begin?

Could it have been just days ago when a piece of advanced electronic equipment disappeared?

Or was it in 1945 when a huge aircraft vanished, somewhere in Egypt?

Or maybe the start was five thousand years ago, when a great flood altered the future of an ancient society?

Or possibly an event so far in the past that the only witness would have been something not quite man?

And, how do you pick up a trail, not known to exist? Things do change quite a bit every thousand years or so. You may carefully mark a path through the deep woods, but if one of the marks disappears, as in time this surely must happen, you are in trouble.

And, how do you decide to set aside your daily affairs to follow you know not what, to you know not where? A faint shadow that, at any moment, may dissolve and leave you alone in an extremely distant place.

The FBI came looking, but the electronic device had vanished without a trace. Luckily, someone high up remembered a man with unusual talents.

Retired Army Ranger, JIM CAGNEY, feels stranded on the beach of retirement after his exiting career as an Army Ranger, but everything changes when two young FBI agents come looking for him. The memory and talents of this older man prove to be of great value in their search for the missing piece of sophisticated electronics. The will-o-the-wisp they chase is more the age of Mr. Cagney and is employing methods and devices of a bygone era to function and cover his tracks. For Jim it is simply a matter of perspective, experience and a penchant for puzzles. He did not hesitate and started a journey beyond his wildest dreams.

Grim(ace) while you work …

Aisling Grimlock is having a bad week. Well, actually, she’s having a bad life — not that she’s complaining. Okay, she’s totally complaining.

After being laid off from her secretarial position, she has no choice but to join the family business, and now she’s a full-time grim reaper. That’s right. She collects and transfers souls to the hereafter.
Cool, huh? Not quite.

On the second day of her new job, Aisling (literally!) stumbles over a dead body that’s not on her list and the stakes are suddenly raised because, when a name isn’t on the list, that means someone stole it (and that’s never a good thing).

Aisling’s family, which consists of a tempestuous father and four overbearing older brothers, are hot on the case – but the answers they’re coming up with aren’t exactly soothing.

It seems a contingent of wraiths have descended on the area, and they’re not just dangerous for unsuspecting souls and the general populace. The Grimlock family is at risk, too.

If that weren’t bad enough, Aisling finds herself inexplicably drawn to Detective Griffin Taylor – the police officer who considers her a murder suspect. Oh, and she’s a wraith-magnet — although, truth be told, she’s more interested in Detective Taylor.

Aisling is determined to prove that she has what it takes to be a great reaper – even if it means risking her life and proving her father and brothers wrong when it comes to her competence level.

When things finally become clear, will Aisling survive long enough to make things right? Or, will she fall prey to the wraiths and the individual controlling them?
