Title: The Friday House
ISBN: 978-1-4382-3363-5

Description:

Special Agent Jamaica Kurtz first assignment after returning from a six month long medical leave was supposed to be a simple one. She was to run a psychological profile of two dead terrorists. She was assured by her superiors that the two killers weren't linked. They were wrong. Adjusting to her newly developed clairvoyant abilities she doesn't know whether it is a blessing or a curse. A trail of seemingly insignificant breadcrumbs that no one else sees reveals a truth the Central Intelligence Agency doesn't want found--a truth that dates back to the Cold War era and to one of its forgotten secrets. Unexpectedly showing up at Kurtz's door is her best friend, CIA Analyst Rosetta Calendar. She insists on aiding Kurtz with her assignment but Calendar's actual motives are more subversive in nature.

Ex-thief, former orphan Larry David (LD) Westerman left his past behind a long time ago. He now works as a Guidance Counselor in Detroit. He was happy with his life. That was until he was drugged, restrained and thrown into the back of a van, driven hundreds of miles to New York without knowing why or by whom. After escaping his captors with expert killer proficiency, a dark veil begins to rise from over his unconsciousness. He is not the man he thought he was—far from it in fact. Hunted by the government, Westerman forcibly enlists New York police detective Raymond Kilgore to help him discover the truth and to destroy those that created him.

Their perilous journey leads them to the Friday House, a seemingly run of the mill orphanage. They discover quickly that it is far more than what it pretends to be. With no other choice, they go headlong into the belly of the beast to do whatever they can to avert the greatest threat the United States has ever faced—itself.

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
