Jody teams up with a small group of men determined to wipe out the US government and up to a third of the population using the bacteria that caused the Black Death, a plague that killed so many in the Middle Ages.
Jody, who had a childhood where she was repeatedly molested by her half-brother, graduated to an adult who was raped by someone who should have protected her. This past filled her with so much hate, she turned her talents to breeding antibiotic-resistant Y. pestis. Meeting a man also filled with hate and dreams of revenge in a chat room on the dark web, she sees her chance. Little does she know that Barnett has a plan that far exceeds her desire for revenge.
Targeting all three branches of government and the military leadership for the plague, Senator Barnett will then control the government, which he plans to run as a dictatorship where anyone who doesn’t fit his ideal, including Jews, Blacks, Browns, and LGBTQ’s, is removed from the gene pool.
Jacob and his cyber sleuths detect exchanges between Azure Nightshade and the Angel of Death in their normal scans of the dark web, but they can only decrypt part of the message–bomb and Y. pestis. A meeting with NIH confirms their worst fears; bioterrorism. But, how to stop the plan when they’re unable to discover more in messages that defy the abilities of the best code-breakers in the world?
Azure's Revenge is Book #3 in the Dark Web Series.
Chilling tale of the invasive ability of hackers to infiltrate and destroy lives, review, Carole P. Roman
We all love the convenience of connected devices, but what happens when those devices kill? SCARS OF THE PAST explores how hackers use IoT devices as weapons of destruction, even death. Jacob and his team of FBI cyber sleuths must find a serial killer hiding behind aberrant code in connected devices that’s killing Russian diplomats in the US drumming up support for Russia’s incursion into Ukraine. It seems anyone who opposes Ukrainian reunification is in danger—and the killers aren’t shy about leaving a trail of other bodies as collateral damage.
While Scars of the Past is a work of fiction, extensive research with cybersecurity experts and law enforcement officers add realism so the novel reads like facts were ripped from the headlines of the near future. Characters and scenes jump off the page, depicting the best and worst of DC and the Federal bureaucracy that stymies efforts to help the FBI prevent more death.
Scars of the Past is second in the Dark Web series
Not your everyday crime drama, Buried Ladies is diverse and thrilling, rich and exciting -
Such an amazing job interweaving many diverse plot lines yet tying them together very nicely by the book's end -I couldn't put it down.
Some men are just evil. And, when Joan calls 911 to report the murder of her friend, Estella, she starts a manhunt for pure evil, but not in the way she expected.
Buried Ladies, tracks a serial killer on both sides of the US-Mexican border. But, he’s not even the most evil man in this novel of murder and the dark web. That title might belong to Arturo Vasquez, who once loved Estella, but now holds her hostage as part of a cartel operation that nearly ends the lives of her husband and Joan when they try to rescue her. Or is it Hector Mateo, who runs the Gulf Cartel using a cruel form of justice that eliminates an enemy’s entire family. Maybe it’s even Detective Morales, who has a single-minded focus that makes it impossible to accept evidence unless it supports the suspect he’s chasing.
"Buried Ladies" is a fast-paced novel set along the Texas/ Mexican border -- a place called the valley. It's here that our story starts with a 911 call to report Estella's murder. But, there's no body - only a missing person and a red stain on the carpeting in the home she shares with her husband, Jaime. Soon, bodies turn up in a construction site north of McAllen, but none of them is Estella. So, what's happened to Estella?
Jaime flees McAllen soon after police interview him about his wife's disappearance -- they don't buy his story that she's visiting relatives. As he prepares to fly out, he runs across the real serial killer, a ruthless man who kills his victims as part of his sexual release. Many are poor women from Mexico.
In the search for Estella, the story winds its way through Mexican cartels, especially the Gulf Cartel, where readers learn about how these organizations operate outside the law with impunity due to their vast wealth in a poor country. Arturo is one of the leaders. He lives in an opulent home -- really a compound where he enforces the rules of his cartel masters and stores drugs destined to reach the US through its network of mules.
Through a series of twists and turns that take us to a job hacking into the DEA computer for the Gulf Cartel and efforts to discover the serial killer responsible for at least 5 dead women in the Rio Grande Valley, we learn about the inner workings of a truly evil mind.
Readers who enjoyed the convoluted plots of The Short Drop or the cyber sleuthing of Dead Beef will enjoy the twists and turns that keep you reading.
