Description : Corporate greed, the raid of America's pension funds, and a good old fashioned murder plot make this book a page turner. Like the Cicada, an insect that emerges from the ground on a 17-year cycle, company executives driven by the need for power, also evolve through a cycle from being magnanimous to being corrupt. Jack Barker, a retired Marine Captain, working in Washington D.C. as a computer systems specialist, stumbles onto a plot to assassinate Donna Carlyle, a feisty newspaper journalist. When Donna is found floating face down in the Hudson River with a knife in her chest, Jack Barker sets out to solve her murder. In the process, Jack exposes a group of 12 corporate CEO's who are systematically weakening the laws designed to protect pensions and chipping away at the controls put in place to protect shareholders from corporate greed and mismanagement of company funds. With the help of some old friends and his new family, Jack sets out to avenge the death of Donna Carlyle and expose the corruption and greed of the Corporate Cicada.

Description : MANKIND'S GREATEST DREAM: THE CONQUEST OF DEATH IS FINALLY REALIZED... BUT IT COMES WITH A CATCH. In the near future, medical science discovers the secret to achieving immortality and eternal youth. But in order to preserve everyone's youthful vitality they must undergo an operation before passing into adulthood that locks their body in the form of a pre-adolescent eleven year old. Under the auspices of the United Nations Global Longevity Initiative led by brilliant neurosurgeon Dr. Richard Ross, the program promises a peaceful utopian society where emotionally and intellectually mature juveniles rule the world. But not everyone is happy with the new arrangement. A small but passionate group of rebels from the Garden of Eden church, led by the mercurial Calvin James, plots to overthrow the new regime and return the world to its natural order. Starting with a shocking revelation at the end of the first chapter, the idyllic setting is quickly overturned through a series of sinister schemes and escalating medical complications, where suddenly the world finds itself on the brink of imminent extinction. Building to an exciting climax, Dr. Ross and his endocrinologist girlfriend must save the one remaining adult female queen, whose mature eggs represent the final link to the continuity of the human race.

Description : The year is 2450 C.E. and the world has enjoyed two centuries of peace. The population of the planet has stabilised at 3 billion following the devastating effects of climate change, famine, disease and wars that raged for nearly 200 years. One central government, the World Federation of Nations, administers the judicial needs of all nations through its General Assembly and funds scientific research dedicated to restoring the planet's fragile ecosystems. At a principal research facility located in Melbourne, Australia, a scientist is assaulted and vital data stolen from their computer records. Almost simultaneously, four other facilities around the world are similarly compromised. When murder impacts upon the course of events, Federation investigators realise they are dealing with a dark conspiracy that stretches across the globe. They enlist the support of the scientists and their sometimes capricious cats; mysterious creatures bred in special centres.
