Some anglers say fish are deaf, that fish can only sense vibrations through their lateral lines, and that’s not really hearing. But fly fishermen on the Hammer creeks know better. When the sun falls and the music rises at the barn, booming the ranges and blanketing all of Gallatin valley, every living creature with or without ears hears the rock and roll.
Learning To Fly is a short story anyone who's discovered the joy of fly fishing is likely to relate to. The author uses music creatively to tell his story and in doing so created a soundtrack for it. "If catching a fish is like hearing a great song, then releasing a fish is like seeing the musicians play that song."
The author created a Spotify playlist of the 125 songs (in order) that are mentioned throughout this book.
“Superbly crafted spy novel with opera!”
“Spies, Germany, East vs West, 1970's and a strong Female Protagonist? What's not to love about this book? The story was well written and the characters were well developed.”
The summer of 1977 finds divided Germany locked in a fierce espionage battle. West Germany’s premier spy hunter, ambitious Sabine Maier, faces off against ruthless Stasi General Werner Heinrich. Sabine has filled half a prison with her prodigious arrests of communist spies. Heinrich is the mastermind behind a small army of spy gigolos who prey on lonely women working in the West German government’s most secret divisions. Caught in the middle is ladies’ man Stefan Malik, a reluctant Romeo, forced to do the general’s bidding or rot in a Stasi prison.
“A must read.”
“I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down, it was easy to read, and spine tingling, at times. The characters were realistic and easily engaging.”
Two sisters, Jacqueline and Jeri, have rented a rustic cabin for a week on South Lake Tahoe's shore owned by the Kelly family. Emma Kelly, the daughter of Lex Kelly, a wealthy New York businessman, has been missing for three weeks. The police have no clues, leads, or suspects. On the first day of Jacqueline and Jeri's vacation, they discover the gruesome remains of a woman in the closet of an old mansion located next door to the cabin they have rented.
Shocking as this crime may be, it is not the soul of the book. It becomes clear that the murder victim holds secrets for the reader.
As Jacqueline and Jeri venture farther into the mystery, Jacqueline, too, disappears. Time is running out as pending doom surrounds the two sisters.
