He hadn't had the same luck with homosexuals.
Stefan was a go-getter and had moved up in the organization, despite Nick's personal feelings. Nick couldn't see sending him to meetings or on matters other than internal problems. He wanted to keep Stefan in the closet. It was wrong, but Nick had grown too old to deny his emotions. Stefan bugged the hell out of him.
If he weren't phenomenal at his job, Nick would've fired him years ago. This time when Stefan opened the door, Leanza was sitting at her desk, staring at her computer screen. She turned while holding an invoice, her eyes shifting from Stefan back to Nick. She waited for Stefan to leave before standing, as if coming too close to him would give her a disease. That bothered Nick more than his own feelings toward Stefan. He might be old and hardnosed, but Leanza was just rude. I just needed your signature.
When she looked up, her eyes locked with Nick's. Nick smiled and gave her a polite nod, knowing young secretaries didn't listen at doors out of innocent curiosity. Something was screwed up in his kingdom. Teo's behavior wasn't a shock, but it had grown more brazen and his main assassin had her own agenda. There was more to it than that, though. Teo hated Diane, but calling in Roland on such short notice and without authorization was near mutiny.
What was Teo hiding?
It might be his conscience, but he wanted to give Diane more time, and Roland was serious trouble. He was a tall, muscular man from England with a shooting eye to match. Worse, he was terrifyingly business. He held no loyalties or emotion when it came to work. If only he could speak to her, warn her.
His heart felt broken. He'd changed from a powerful leader to a sick old man. Funny, he couldn't remember when it had started. He realized his age when he'd noticed Diane had changed into a woman. She was supposed to stay a little girl. Nick picked up the phone and dialed Diane's cell. It was a long shot, but the only one he had left. One ring, two rings. The sounds were maddening, coming too slow to be of any use.
Roland knew her exact location. Three rings, four; he could only see her as that twelve-year-old girl, the child he'd corrupted. Even when his father died and he could've helped Diane become something better, he hadn't. She was too good, too valuable. Nick's own children weren't a part of this lifestyle. Each went to college and had families, but the one girl that had been with him the longest couldn't be saved. Now she was out there, waiting to die. The phone rang a fifth time and Nick thought he'd go mad.
Even when he heard Diane answer, both the words and his thoughts couldn't come fast enough. He didn't know how to explain that she was a target. Get out of there. Roland knows your location and he is on his way. This guy doesn't waste time playing games. Somebody's setting me up.
If there was anyone I believed in, it was you. If you really think I'm a damn traitor, why help me? Do you have another house someplace, a distant relative? This was eating at her as much as it was him. And I will come after you. I have no choice. She needed to get out of there. Everyone has those kills pegged on you and if I didn't send someone, then my organization would be blamed.
At least I sent a couple of screwups. They were easy to slide. The police were called. Shit, a roadblock had been set up. I know of at least three kills on your head. Now you tell me Roland has been called? That had to have been you. Nobody calls in an outsider without your permission. He'd ordered a simple hit, no fuss, no mess and one she could easily shake. I've got to figure this out. Not only would that sign my death warrant, it would be going against everything I believe in.
Damn, Nick, how could you not back me? I thought we meant more…" Her words trailed off. Nick looked at his watch again. This emotional blame only made things worse. Where are you going? I'll find you but until I do, get out of there. I don't know how much of a head start Roland has. Also, don't call here. Something is going down and if you're not a part of it, then it may explain why you have been set up to die.
He knew what that meant.
She wasn't alone anymore. Sick dread filled his stomach and inched its way up his esophagus. Any minute now, he'd hear a gun blast. The woman that meant the most to him was getting ready to die. His heart beat a painful melody in his ears. There had never been a moment when he expected her to die. She was always supposed to be there, calling in, pissing him off. She was supposed to live. The line went dead. Sickness filled his belly and his mind. Nick went to his private bathroom and vomited.
He rinsed his mouth. He'd know about the kill minutes after it happened. Roland was good at reporting. He stared at the phone on his desk. Waiting would be hell. He looked at himself in the mirror. It used to hide a secret staircase to the private records room below. He'd had it closed off because it felt too seedy to have secret passages. He didn't want to be seedy, but everything seemed to boil down to who could hurt the most people and who had the most secrets. The intercom on his desk clicked on, startling him. A call transferred into his office. The light came on and it began ringing.
It was probably Teo checking about lunch or Stefan needing information. He couldn't answer it, though. His legs were frozen. It might be Roland calling in the kill.

Adopted Son is my version of a sci-fi novel, which probably isn't very sci-fi because I don't read books like that, so it's just my approximation of the genre.
See a Problem?
Unlike my first novel, which was a cautionary tale of the illuminati and obsession, this second novel is an uplifting world-spanning story about babies How cute is that?!? Darn cute, that's for sure. It is also about farming, bioterrorism, the civil rights movement, and third world revolutions. Although nominally a story of alien invasion based on Roswell Incident and the stories of 'abductees', it touches on a lot of today's social and political topics including; racism, terrorism, xenophobia, war, the intelligence community, bio-warfare, love, peace, family, genetic engineering, militarism, government bureaucracy, and what it means to be human.
The invasion has begun An invasion not from the stars but from within our wombs. All over the world children are being born Their features are alien, their DNA isn't human, their loyalties are unknown. As scientists, spies, and regular citizens race to make sense of this new disease they find themselves asking the same question: Is this the first wave of an alien assault on Earth?
Celebrated fiction author and bioterrorism expert Dominic Peloso weaves a complex tale of alien invasion, environmental catastrophe, and societal upheaval, in a world not too removed from our own. Adopted Son perfectly blends hard sci-fi with biting political and social commentary to create a truly modern literary masterpiece that transcends genres. Offered by BJAppelgren publisher: There aren't many books that describe the process of acquiring wisdom. This book describes the struggles of a young woman to see herself and find her place as a responsible and useful participant in the human community.
Readers might enjoy grappling with similar kinds of questions -- Why am i here? What is my purpose on earth? The book is not all serious, for seeing the contradictions in oneself and others can be humorous. These humorous moments are captured in stories and quotes sprinkled throughout the book. Thousands of young Americans roamed Europe in the s seeking spiritual truth and sustainable alternatives to a culture of growing materialism. The students practiced spiritual exercises from both East and West, including self-observation, decision training, sacred movements, cosmology, and meditations.
In their fourteen hour days, they also grew food and maintained the huge estate that housed the school. Sunny side Up offers a portrayal of perplexing yet rich lessons, personal failures and triumphs, as well as humorous good will. These are characteristics recognizable to all seekers who have looked for love and answers from others, later understood to be found only within.

Or will he surrender to the RAGE inside him? Strom Wheldon has returned from Iraq a literal half-man. Can love save him from the RAGE eating him from within?

At the same time they are the inheritors of the spectacular horrors human beings have hurled at one another throughout our blood-spattered history.

Discover how to apply main ideas presented in the Book of Romans to your personal life. Enrich your mind, body, and spirit — Improve your life today. From the Author It is my experience that many people, Christians and Non-Christians, desire to learn about the Christian faith and its teachings. How strong is your desire? I believe you have a strong desire simply because you are reading this letter.
However as a result of various circumstances, some people cannot or do not invest the time to read a lengthy book written on theological subjects. Some people will resort to exclusive listening of audio podcasts and video teachings in an attempt to replace reading. While both audio and video are useful and needed, they do not replace reading. Studies have shown that reading exercises the mind in a way that listening and watching cannot do.
Reading forces the use of imagination. This benefits readers in the way that they are more apt to be able to solve problems with creative solutions in everyday life. Active reading will guide your mind and teach you how to become a better thinker. Even with the benefits of reading, some still are not convinced of the purpose.

Some are not willing to put in the hours required to become a stellar reader. That is where this book comes into play.

The style and length of this book was designed for everyone in mind. There is the rich and in depth background material one must understand to better comprehend the book of Romans. On the other hand, the book length was kept to a minimum, enabling those who have a difficult time reading a long book an opportunity to complete the task — to feel the sense of accomplishment that results from exploring a book through its entirety. The book of Romans is referred to as the most systematic teaching on the Gospel of Christ.
Many topics are covered throughout the book — many aspects of Christianity discussed. The book does not cover each and every important topic of the book of Romans. This book looks at the letter as a whole, and attempts to follow its primary topics. There is no in depth examination of the inherent destitution of fallen man. There is little comparison of the passages of Scripture in the book of Romans to other selections of Scripture, except for instances where prior understanding of a topic is required in order to fully grasp and comprehend what Paul was communicating to the Romans.
There is an in depth look at what the Righteousness of God actually is. Then is an examination of what Salvation in Christ truly means. Ending will be a discussion on how to apply the concepts covered to your personal life. There is a lot in this book for everybody, and for everyone there is something to be learned from this book. I hope you enjoy our journey through the book of Romans and I look forward to seeing your review on the book.
I also am excited to see your comments on how this book has helped you or increased your understanding of Christ. Let me know and let everyone else know your thoughts as well.

I'm always a little leery of reading middle grade books for review, simply because sometimes I think that I could be a litle too harsh on the author.
