Robert Richter Author- SOMETHING LIKE A DREAM


by Robert Richter

From Oak Tree Press

Known to his cantina buddies as “Algo,” or Something in Spanish, Cotton Waters scroungers a lazy fishing village life out of the Puerto Vallarta tourist trade as a priavte hustlier of a Mexican Riviera lost-and-found- helping some people get lost and finding others – if the price is right or the client’s cause is worth the time and interest.  In the summer of ’82 the worthy cause is Corina Springfield, searching for her husband, heir to the Springfield Foundation, missing and presumed dead for over three years.

In his search for a missing anthropologist, Cotton Waters finds himself in the center of tribal dissension in the sierra heart of Mexico’s Huichol territory.  On this strange pilgramage Waters will find a whole new persepective on reality and dream, on deceit and self-deception, and on human spirituality in a miraculous healing cermony that will change his life forever or simply end it.

Betty Webb Author- DESERT RAGE


A New Lena Jones Novel

by Betty Webb

Ferociously ambitious U.S. Senatorial candidate Juliana Thorsson has been keeping a secret.  The horrific slaughter of a prominent doctor, his wife, and their ten-year-old son inside their Scottsdale home brings the politician to private investigator Lena Jones.  The slain family’s 14-year-old daughter, Alison, and her boyfriend, Kyle have confessed to the murders.  Thorsson wants to hire Lena to discover if Alison is telling the truth, but before accepting the job, Lena demands to know why a rising political star wants to involve herself with the fate of a girl she’s never met.  Desperate for Lena’s help, Thorasson reveals her explosive secret – that Alison is the canidate’s biological daughter, a fact she’s kept hidden for years.  But that’s not all.  Thorsson then confides something even more unusual than a mere hidden pregnancy, something that could ruin her political plans forever.

Suspecting that Alison’s parents had secrets of their own that could have led to the murders, Lena accepts the assignment.  But interviewing those who knew the family well soon puts Lena – now a strong defender of the two teens – in danger of her life.

The critics say: “Fast paced, probing, and filled with the tradmark twist of the Lena Jones series.  Betty Webb is unsparing of her characters, yet writes their stories with wit and compassion.”  Strong. Moving.”  “Webb’s best book yet.”
