Dana Evans is a spunky, good-looking, young Washington TV journalist who’s recently returned to the nation’s capital from the Balkans, where she adopted a handicapped war orphan who’s having trouble adjusting to life in America. But that doesn’t keep Dana from following a story all over the world, from Washington to Aspen, Nice, Juneau, Dusseldorf, Rome, Brussels, Moscow, and Siberia. Each of these brief visits is like a postcard–a local landmark or two, an interesting local restaurant (at least in the European venues), and another piece of the puzzle, which has to do with why every member of a venerable, old Washington dynasty has died a violent death in the last year. It seems strange that in a media-savvy city like Washington, no one but Dana has noticed there’s a pattern in the rapid extinction of the Winthrops or even whispered the words family vendetta. But that’s why pretty, young girl TV reporters were invented…

Air Force investigator Martin Collins is used to bucking the system in the name of justice. But when he is called on to investigate the torture-style slaying of Major Franklin Talbot, Collins is embroiled in the most controversial case of his career. Evidence suggests that the deadly act was a hate crime — and that Talbot was hiding a shocking secret that may have sealed his fate. Even more shocking are the suspects: all high-ranking officers — including Talbot’s own uncle, a leading presidential candidate. Traversing a politically charged minefield of buried secrets, Martin is targeted by powerful forces that cannot afford to let him identify Talbot’s killer. And when he finally uncovers the devastating truth, Martin will be forced to make a fateful decision between catching a sadistic murderer — and destroying the lives of countless innocent men.

The phrase ‘separated at birth’ takes on a terrifying new meaning in this riveting medical thriller from the author of Neanderthal. When tabloid journalist Jude Harley and a distraught young man known only as Skyler meet on the streets of New York City, they could be identical twins–except that Skyler is a few years younger and fitter than the 30-year-old Jude. And when Skyler sees that Jude’s girlfriend, Dr. Elizabeth “Tizzie” Tierney, is a dead ringer for Julia, his own lost love, he–and we–know that something very spooky is going on. It turns out to be a case of “send in the clones”: they were all part of a bizarre experiment when they were kids, and now they’re up to their doppelgangers in a deadly confrontation with scientists and politicians who want to keep the whole thing quiet.…”

Our Environmental Arrogance

October 27, 2007

cougar campingHuman population is now +6 billion, and may double within this century. All over the world, other life forms are becoming extinct because of human encroachment. As developers push farther and farther out of the city limits and swallow up wild animal habitat, should we really be surprised by cougar attacks on pets, or vehicle collissions with deer?

deer crossing signIn today’s paper (“Deer runs amok in London furniture store“; Joe Belanger; London Free Press), we’re told that deer are “a menace to drivers.” Well, I beg to differ. It seems to me that we’re the menace, and it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to curb our selfishness before Mother Nature decides to do it for us.
