As the body count rises, Kate struggles to apprehend the brutal mastermind before he resurrects history’s most insidious form of torture upon her.

Book Review: The Ice Merchant by Paul Boor

Chilling Secrets, The Best Sort Of Escape: The Ice Merchant

Serious readers perfectly understand the advantage of well-written fiction: it’s an escape from whatever ails you, whenever it’s convenient. The Ice Merchant, Paul Boor’s newest novel, set in Galveston, TX in 1889, is a tale of the post-civil war ice trade, new medical schools, trafficking in corpses, the discovery of a cure for yellow fever, and a chilling reminder of our human frailties.

The story begins in 1889, when a shrewd Yankee ice merchant, Nicolas Van Horne, is carving out a profitable side-business. Deep in his ship’s icy hold, dozens of human cadavers lie between the huge blocks of ice. On this delivery, his first to Galveston’s new Medical School, Nicolas is enthralled by Galveston’s lady scientist Rene Keiller, but he also makes the ghastly discovery that he’s been trafficking in murdered boys.

It will take Rene’s help to eventually solve the puzzle his ice holds . . . but first he must overcome his personal demons, including morphine addiction, even as he becomes inextricably entangled in lovely Rene’s experimental work on the most dreaded killer of their time, yellow fever.

paul-boorPaul Boor, M.D., is a scientist and professor at Galveston’s medical school, the oldest west of the Mississippi, and home to the highest-level, infectious Bio-Lab. His first novel, The Blood Notes of Peter Mallow, was a modern biomedical thriller acclaimed as “real, raw and on the edge.” In The Ice Merchant, Dr. Boor goes back in time to explore the history of medical research and the body trade, while spinning a tale of romance and human imperfection.

Amazon readers say:

“I would recommend this book to everyone that likes a book full of suspense. Once I started reading I actually could not put it down and expect not to do anything else. Since it took place in Galveston you could imagine all of the places that were mentioned and the way that they might of looked back then. The plot was great!!! Dr. Boor did a remarkable job. I recommend buying this book….you will not regret it.” ~ Phyllis Scalise

“This book is a true gem. First of all, it is well written throughout, without … the mistakes that non-professional authors often make. Second, it is quite different from most books I have read and tells a haunting tale with the story happening in Galveston, TX, and upstate New York, written with great authority and historical insight. Third, the story is realistic for the time (the end of the 19th century) and the language has the right tilt for the time. And last but not least, the book kept my interest from the first to the last page and offered a number of unexpected twists and turns.” ~ SrgnFsh

“Here’s a book to ‘sink your teeth into!’ I thoroughly enjoyed the story partly set in Galveston in 1899. Intriguing premise about procuring bodies for a medical school – very believable. The characters were believable and I cared about the welfare of the protagonist and others who were struggling to find the cause and cure of yellow fever. A ‘must read’ for Galvestonians and anyone interested in the history of the Gulf Coast prior to the devastating 1900 storm.” ~ Elizabeth Anderson

 Usually I read non-fiction but the title of Karma Visited intrigued me so I read it and could not put this book down. The author has written a fascinating story of good and evil in a plausible way. My heart beat faster reading many scenes and felt relief when things brightened for a few pages. What a read!

A Work of Fiction ~ A Training Scenerio for Our Country

The Massacre In Orlando Shows Just How Unprepared
Our Nation Is In The Fight To Stop Domestic Terrorism

Military expert, author and historian Dr. William R. Forstchen believes ISIS will soon target schools, interstate highways and churches in the U.S. “They said they’re bringing the war to us, to our children and civilians,” says Forstchen, “Sadly, it’s just beginning…”

This is the terrifying premise of his most recent book, Day of Wrath, which is again drawing significant attention.  A number of security experts and law enforcement officials observe that Day of Wrath is not just a warning, but should be viewed literally as a “training scenario,” when considering how to protect our schools from a terrorist assault similar to the massacres created by Islamic terrorists in Beslan, Russia in 2004 and Pakistan in 2014.

Although it’s a work of fiction, the actual threat is critical and highly probable. For that reason Day of Wrath went directly to ebook self-publication. “This story must reach the public immediately and should be used as a platform for debate as to how to respond and stop ISIS,” he explains. A print version is also available now.

Forstchen, author of more than fifty books, presents a horrifying but likely scenario in Day of Wrath. Forstchen’s heart-stopping novella brings home just how vulnerable our infrastructure really is. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government.

William R. Forstchen is a New York Times bestselling author and holds a doctoral degree from Purdue University with a specialization in military history and technology.

He is a noted expert historian and public speaker and has been interviewed on FOX News, C-SPAN, and Coast to Coast on topics ranging from history to technology and cultural issues, to space technology development, to security threats. Other recent works by Forstchen include One Second After and One Year After, both NYT best sellers examining the potential threat against our nation’s electrical infrastructure by means of an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) attack launched by Iran.

   Day of Wrath

Bob Petersen arrives with his daughter at the Middle Grade school in Maine where he teaches, expecting another regular day but worried about what recent ominous news reports might portend. Suddenly his school — along with many others across the United States — is under attack. Gunmen burst in, slaughtering children and adults alike. This novella by New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen imagines a horrifying scenario where, in the course of one day, the terrorist group ISIS carries out massacres in schools and on highways across the United States. With a surprisingly small but well-organized and ruthless force, the nightmarish devastation brings America to a state of near-paralysis. Author of One Second After and Pillar to the Sky, this heart-stopping novella brings home just how fragile our defenses and infrastructure really are. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government. From the ISIS leader in Syria, to the murderous rampages throughout the U.S., Day of Wrath reveals with chilling effect how national panic and paralyzing terror at the spiraling violence can bring a mighty country to a near-standstill. Petersen’s fight to save lives and stop the merciless gunmen provides edge-of-the-seat drama. Day of Wrath is a provocative work that should stimulate an intense national debate. One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as the book everyone should read. “A THRILLING – AND TERRIFYING – TALE OF WHAT COULD BE OUR NEXT 9/11!” – W.E.B. Griffin & William E.

Book Review: Dig Deeper, Dig Wider by Donald E. Whitman

Dig Deeper, Dig Wider

A LETTER ARRIVES THREATENING TO INFECT A CHAIN OF FAMILY RESTAURANTS WITH HEPATITIS UNLESS $8 MILLION IS PAID.

The owner, a God-fearing family man, is torn over what to do. If he borrows the money, his family will drown in debt. He could close all the restaurants, but that would throw loyal employees out of work and stiff his creditors. FBI agent Peters says to raise the money and they will get it back. The Bureau seems to be on top of it but the crooks outwit them and disappear. With no leads to follow, the FBI is at a loss. Then a small town detective investigating an unrelated murder case discovers a possible link. It’s not over yet.

Editorial Reviews:

“A gripping premise with a sense of urgency that keeps the pages turning.”—Dan Lawton, author of Deception and Operation Salazar.

“A diabolical but creative crime perpetrated by increasingly dysfunctional villains … always a good mix! Twists and turns as the good guys struggle to deal with the crisis … sometimes successfully, other times not so much; a fascinating read. It will make you think twice next time you consider going out for dinner.”—Rodney Page author of Murcheson County.

“Dig Deeper, Dig Wider uses a uniquely imaginative premise to drive a story packed with evil, extortion and creative money laundering on its way to a surprising and satisfying conclusion”.—Frank Foster, Best Selling author
