T. K. Thompson Author- THE DARK EVE

      Young Audim Basile hates life dominated by his cold, controlling father. But his dreams of fortune and adventure are turned upside down when he runs off to weigh anchor with the toughest, most barbaric band of pirates the criminal underworld has ever known. Together with their dark, mysterious female captain, Acantha – who’ll run her sword through anyone who looks at her the wrong way – Basile and his fellow swashbuckling bandits sail the globe, fighting hordes of terrifying supernatural creatures that would make even the hardiest buccaneer quake with fear. Together with his newfound crew mates, Basile must help with finding Acantha’s sister – who’s been missing for over a year – while being consumed with trying to solve the mystery of Acantha’s illusive past – before the evil Wraith King sends all of them to a premature watery grave. Will Basile survive the fiercest test of his young life? Will Acantha sacrifice her own ship and crew (including young Basile) just to save her sister? Will young Basile come to terms with the price of the high-seas way of life and fortune? In her stunning debut novel, T.K. Thompson launches readers on the most exhilarating ocean journey since Pirates of the Caribbean. Only time will tell if Acantha, Basile, and their hardy shipmates will live to tell this heart-stopping tale and fight another day.

SACTAMENT OF FEAR

by Will Dresser

Cloaked in the guise of a terrorist act, a father takes revenge for the senseless and brutal death of his son

Following a series of deaths around the world from seemingly “natural causes,” the Special Assistant to Minister President of The Netherlands, Frans Roobeck, recognizes a special link between the list of victims and his American friend, Wes Franklin … all are members of a secret intelligence network . The Cloister of Akhenaten, or Ankh Network – and Wes may soon become the next member to meet his end by “natural causes”!

Wes Franklin emerges from the jungles of Columbia with his technology-savy girl friend, Ashley Jordan, and his weapons expert and Persian strongman, Aryana, to investigate the deaths.  Together, they chase down clues from Holland, Scotland, and Damascus to uncover and foil a diabolical plot to launch an unprecdented wave of terror somewhere in Europe.

THE METHUSELAH MAN

by Will Dresser

“God, I never knew a man who wanted so much to be dead … or deserved it more.”

President Treem, an idealist young president, is determined to change the nuclear face of the world by unilateral example.  Vice President George S. Austin, and old-school war hero, is convinced these new policies are both naive and dangerous.  Secretary of State Crandall Forsyth, fearing the Vice President is about to take drastic steps to subvert the President’s nuclear agenda, and uncertain how deep the Vice President’s conspiracy runs, turns to the one man outside the government he can trust – his long-time friend Wes Franklin, a member of an independent international intelligence group known as THE ANKH NETWORK.

Into this central plot steps Jared Kennan Cain, a man with a perfect genetic structure who appears to be immortal.  Cain has escaped from The Genetic Discovery Corporation, a Palo Alto-based secret government organization tasked with developing biological weapons systems.  Two years of experiements to study Cain’s unique system have been documented in a file labeled THE METHUSELAH MAN.  Could he be the ultimate weapon?
