Featured Book - Merger by Sanjay Sanghoee


"Glamour, gore and more…The plot, like a speedway with hairpin curves, centers around an icily amoral CEO whose scheme for the takeover of a satellite company brings into play the heavy hitters and bit players that feed on M&A dealings."
- Barrons

 “Timely, gripping and original!.” – Chicago Tribune

Merger, Sanjay Sanghoee’s fast-paced corporate thriller, has just been released on Kindle and reissued in paperback. Tightly plotted and executed with precision, the book reveals the realities of multi-billion dollar deal-making and ruthless plays for money and power that have defined the corporate world since the 1980s. Coming on the heels of the worst financial crisis in American history, Merger is a wake-up call for readers everywhere. Critics like Susan Shwartz, author of Hostile Takeover, are raving about the book. Walter Wager, author of Die Hard 2, calls it “Wall Street meets The Firm."

Vikram Suri, a powerful Indian industrialist, is a new breed of global corporate criminal: smarter, richer and infinitely more dangerous than anyone we have ever seen. Behind the facade of oak-paneled boardrooms, fancy personal jets and lavish mansions, Suri is masterminding a grand scheme of market manipulation, smuggling, money laundering, and extortion through an international network of banks, brokerage houses and dummy corporations. He is a megalomaniac who will stop at nothing to grow his corporate empire, even murder...

As Merger races to its climax and the clock winds down to Suri's deadly triumph, no one suspects his hidden agenda...except for Tom Carter, an investment banker working on the deal. Torn between his job and his conscience, and locked in the crosshairs of the SEC, Carter enlists the help of Amanda Fleming, a beautiful and intrepid New York Times reporter eager to "break" a big story. Together they must not only outsmart the brilliant Vikram Suri and stay alive, but prevent a shocking betrayal of the US financial system.

Merger is an exciting novel that keeps the reader engrossed with every twist and turn. Expect even more thrills in Sanghoee’s upcoming novel, Portait of Malice, which combines history and current events to examine the emotional, political and financial realities of war reparations, justice and terrorism. Sanghoee speaks more about financial greed and corporate crime on his blog at as well as on his weekly radio address, which is broadcast in both English and Spanish on five stations.



Featured Book - Remnant by Roland Allnach


Remnant is an anthology of three novellas within the speculative/science fiction genre. The stories are linked in theme by characters seeking self-truth, redemption, and their moral center. The three novellas, in order of appearance in the anthology, are “All the Fallen Angels,” in which a convicted war criminal attempts to make peace with his past; “Enemy, I Know You Not,” in which a military officer that was captured and tortured tries to find his loyalty in an abyss of suspected betrayals; and “Remnant,” in which the survivor of a global pandemic is confronted with the prospect of making peace with his memories when other survivors attempt to bring him back from self-imposed isolation.  The stories are character driven and written with an aspiration for literary quality. Remnant is Roland Allnach’s book publication debut.



Featured Book - Ultimate Revenge:  Involuntary Transsexual by Herman Franck, Esq.


What he did to her was unforgiveable; what they did to him/her was even worse. A man’s fiancé is raped. The man catches the rapist, and uses hormone therapy to turn the rapist into a shemale. Unspeakable things happen.

Ben Nightengale was engaged to be married to Erica Lazarus. He is an investigative journalist for the San Diego Gazette. He is in his twenties, bohemian, rich, but doesn’t show it as he drives his convertible corvair.

Erica is a neurotic twenty something well built writer, on the constant verge of a nervous breakdown. She was pushed over the edge one evening while at a restaurant.

Henry Emerson III, shaved head, late twenties, good shape, handsome guy, was waiting for his next victim. He was in the bar area, and had in his coat pocket a secret weapon: a hypodermic needle filled with a concoction of animal hospital drugs. He followed Erica into a bathroom, locked the door, and shot her with the concoction. He then anally raped her.

Ben manages to connect the few dots of evidence to Henry, who is sentenced to prison. He undergoes sexual offender therapy in prison, and is a model inmate.

It is right in the middle of this successful treatment that an unfortunate even occurs. Henry’s public defender filed an appeal from his judgment of conviction. The judgment of conviction is reversed, and Henry is released.

Ben, angry over the appellate decision, snatches Henry from his home, He administers a regimen of hormone therapy, shots, pills, and minerals to Henry. He keeps Henry down by also giving him barbiturates, to keep him compliant. Within a period of months Henry turns into a hottie shemale named Hazel.

Revenge is hollow. Ben starts to think about what he is doing. Didn’t he become a rapist? Ben falls in love with his creation.

Then uh oh “honey I’m home” Erica is released from the psyche ward.

The story ends with a chapter called Discovery, Revenge and Redemption. And so it would be, an odd household ensues of rapist turned demonless shemale, victim turned jilted lover, and Ben with both of them.



Featured Book - Point Deception by Jim Gilliam


Surviving the mean streets of New Orleans in 1956, young Tim Kelly begins a young Indiana Jones style adventure by lying about his age to join the Coast Guard at fourteen.

His Coast Guard career takes him to Vietnam where three of his friends are killed in a friendly fire incident. Deeply mourning the loss of his friends, he releases his rage in an Air Force officer's club and is punished with a less than honorable discharge.

Returning to his home state of Texas, he embarks on a new career as an undercover narcotics agent, entering the shadow world of drug and human trafficking sponsored by his old friend and mentor Rodolfo Guzman, a kingpin in the powerful Campeche drug cartel.
