written by Frank H. Marsh It is the autumn of 1938 when Julia Kaufmann meets Erich Schmidt while studying medicine at the German University in Prague. With Hitler’s army soon to invade the city and the terror of World War II looming, it is the worst of times for a Jew and a German to fall in love. As the excitement of the eugenics movement gives way to outright genocide, and the fear sweeping across Europe grows into madness, Julia and Erich find themselves forced to travel two very different paths—ones which will determine the fate of their love and, ultimately, the fate of their souls. A Perfect Madness takes us on a journey back to a dark time when the fight for survival often eclipsed the fight for the truth. Beautifully and provocatively written, it examines the crippling effects of fear on the human mind, asking painful questions of moral choice we cannot afford to leave unanswered.

by Richard P. Wenzel Terror reigns when a string of post-op infections erupts in the sanitized halls of King’s College Hospital in London. A trio of experts—Microbiology Professor Chris Rose, Jake Evans, an American infectious disease specialist, and Elizabeth Foster, a senior agent with M15—soon realize that the offending organism is a weapon in a worldwide terrorist plot. The terrorists turn their focus on an upcoming medical-legal conference, hoping to infect hundreds and subsequently ravage the global community, as well as those very doctors who might be able to find a cure. Author and physician Richard Wenzel takes us on a riveting, winding journey through Europe and the Middle East, unravels the science of infections, and opens a revealing window on the complex politics of medicine.

by James Pendleton Two men meet for the first time deep in a Nicaraguan jungle, one an American pilot and businessman, the other a gravely wounded Guatemalan pastor whose wife has been murdered by Somoza’s henchmen. Remarkable events have brought them both to this dangerous time and place. Neither is political, and certainly neither intended to get swept up in a revolution. Ron Hartley, divorced, at loose ends, has taken a job representing a U.S. bank in Managua. Once there, what seems perfectly harmless and aboveboard—meetings with wealthy Nicaraguan businessmen, a date with an attractive attaché at the American embassy, a reunion with his former partner’s beautiful widow—all turn out to have shocking, life-changing consequences.

by James Pendleton and Jerome Johnson “Call me the night man. That’s what I am mostly. Course, I work some in the daytime, too, cleaning houses for my special customers—nice folks who live in a pretty part of town. But mainly I work at night..." “I’ve got keys to more offices and homes in this town than I can count. People come to work in the morning and find their offices all shiny—windows cleaned, trash cans emptied, ... rugs vacuumed, and, oh yes, the occasional wrapper from a hurriedly opened condom scooped up neatly from underneath a desk. Like magic. I guess it makes people feel like no matter what they do, there’s always somebody to make things right by morning.” Such is the life of janitor Braxton Bragg, a black man in the modern capital of the Confederacy, and great grandson of a white Confederate general. Despite the apparent dullness of his job, what he faces behind locked doors ranges from the embarrassing to the life-threatening. Braxton’s dark, sometimes humorous commentary exposes the seamy underbelly of this Southern city—as well as the secret sins of the elite–– and takes us through ten days and nights of mystery, danger and surprise. “...You never know what you’re gonna find....”

by Bradford Moore When Senator J.A. Burnside is found dead in his penthouse, the police rule it a suicide. However, Detective Arch Williams isn’t convinced, so decides to dig deeper. Meanwhile, Tradd Mashburn, a young attorney, comes across a seemingly run-of-the-mill historic preservation lawsuit coupled with an amicus brief so passionately written that he must meet its author. Burnside’s death and the lawsuit point to a conspiracy so grand and secretive it appears impossible to unravel. Tradd’s and Arch’s respective investigations bring them together unexpectedly, taking them across Virginia and deep into its culture. Together, they grapple with the reverberations of Southern history that linger in our modern times and attempt to uncover the truth behind Burnside’s death and the apparently benign lawsuit.
