Featured Book - Ayjay's Millions: An A.J. Carlin Mystery by
Jack Wassermann

millions.jpgManhattan private eye AyJay Carlin is single, white, female, and a self-dubbed “pleej,” “crip,” or “wheelie,” depending on her mood. Based on a very real paraplegic, Ms. Carlin is twice as competent as most of us able-bodied folk. She is also irreverent, lusty, and intermittently confused about her world and how she fits into it.

In AyJay’s Millions, AyJay is hired by fiftyish Eddie Dahlgren to find out whether his niece, Tanya Styles, is being wooed by a fortune hunter. Styles has become a performing member of Pro Musica Amorosa, a group that specializes in ancient music and is currently rehearsing in a Suffolk County town. Before long, Ms. Carlin discovers that Dahlgren is not who he seems, and neither is Styles, but this only whets her appetite for the chase, not to mention her interest in Mr. Dahlgren personally. When AyJay’s longtime friend and associate Martin turns up dead under mysterious circumstances in New York, closely followed by Styles in Suffolk, AyJay is at first devastated, and then puzzled. There’s no apparent sign of foul play, yet she gradually becomes convinced that they were murdered, a notion pooh-poohed by police authorities in the two jurisdictions.

In the course of her investigation AyJay enlists the help of:

*her old buddy Sonia Paproski, a resourceful staff editor on a national gossip sheet

*Inspector Ernie Vandenberg, her skeptical rabbi on NYPD who is himself being put out to pasture

*Tony Tamereau, AKA The Ferret, a legendary and barely legal computer hacker-for-hire reachable only by phone or fax at his shack on the Gulf Coast of Texas, and

*Gene MacCauslen, an octogenarian lawyer representing Martin’s estate.

The chase leads Ms. Carlin through a series of shadow worlds that include a “dull” Federal agency, a multi-million dollar electronic embezzlement, and a series of art forgeries a half century ago in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands

Increasingly suspicion falls within the ranks of the Pro Musica group, whose members are made up partly of laypersons and partly of friars from the charterhouse of St. Florian near St. Johnsbury, Vermont. But who among them, religious or lay, is the culprit? AyJay Carlin must place her mental and physical competence on the line if she is to escape with her life and nail the culprit.

Featured Book - Chasing Her Destiny by Terri Friedlander

destiny.jpgChasing Her Destiny is a story about hope, love and adoption. It is a humorous, heartwarming account of a successful forty-something couple struggling to start their family.

The consummate career girl, Sherri Richmond, has spent the last 17 years commuting to Manhattan before dawn and working late into the night to climb the corporate ladder. Her demanding position as Director of Communications sends her around the world as she manages her staff and the egotistical partners of the world’s largest law firm. Fiercely independent, she finds little time for a serious relationship until she is swept away by the dashing Kent Weber. Suddenly in love and happily married, she begins thinking about a switch from the career track to the Mommy track. Kent too begins to envy his friend's children as he jokes "I forgot to do something in my life. I forgot to have kids."

The ultimate test of her career as well as their young marriage, Sherri and Kent ride the emotional roller coaster of infertility and adoption where they meet extraordinary women in the most unexpected places as they follow their dream of becoming a family. Chasing Her Destiny is an inspirational journey about tenacity and hope, and the power of love and humanity. Chasing Her Destiny touches our hearts with its bittersweet, zany escapades and a feel-good ending that proves anything can happen when you keep your sense of humor and follow your heart and your dreams.

Featured Book - The Last Justice by Anthony J. Franze

justice.jpgCHAOS ERUPTS at the U.S. Supreme Court when an assassin guns down six justices as they are hearing a case.

Solicitor General Jefferson McKenna, the government's top lawyer in the Supreme Court, is appointed to the multiagency commission investigating the murders. As Congress draws battle lines over who will replace the slain justices, the commission follows clue after clue, each one pointing to an unlikely suspect: McKenna himself.

In a desperate bid to prove his innocence, McKenna, on the run with his deputy, Kate Porter, must track down a disgraced law clerk with ties to hidden Saudi assets. But their search leads to unexpected alliances, unearthing dark secrets and corruption at the highest levels -- and the people with clues to the riddle keep turning up dead. From the marble halls of the high court to the inner corridors of the West Wing, from the D.C. housing projects to the desolate back roads of a New York Indian reservation, McKenna and Porter are on a collision course with a shadowy enemy who will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

From its explosive first page to its haunting conclusion, THE LAST JUSTICE explores the politics of law, the bounds of friendship and love, and the frightening price of unbridled ambition.
