The divers moved around the other side of the boat and entered the main cabin. Jack began searching the inside storage compartments. He found what he wanted in a box, a Mark 79 pencil flare. He looked out and saw the creature hovering over the stern. He ignited one of the flares and flashed it at the creature. The eel lunged at the flare and Kimo ducked down into the bottom of the boat. Jack let go of the flare when the creature charged forward. The eel engulfed the spattering red light and Jack grabbed at his hand. It was still intact. Both men were clinging to the deck of the cabin and didn't have the courage to check on the status of the intruder. They looked at each other and breathed deeply. "O'shaughnessy, are you missing any fingers or arms or a leg or anything else?" Kimo said and thought a little humor might alleviate the stress. Jack held up his hands. "Huh?" He spat. The eel disappeared and left the two Seabee's shaken and weak kneed. Kimo spun around and gave Jack a dirty look. Jack s hrugged his shoulders and said, "It likes sparkles, hell, I didn't know." He said. "Get us out of here Beaudette, over." Kimo knew his command would be followed and quickly.

Spoof is the story of the lives of two men who are identical twins. Terry Lickliter and his brother Tom were minor characters in Illusive Innocence, my first novel. In Spoof both men are in their late fortys. Terry worked in Silicon Valley until the mid-nineties and made a fortune when his company sold out to a high tech giant. He moved to Grand Haven Michigan and built two large houses on Lake Michigan, a Victorian with an attached lighthouse and a Tudor. Tom Lickliter resided in Florida and worked as an Electrician and moved back to Michigan to join his brother. The two brothers had been living twenty-eight hundred miles apart. Terry and his wife Kristine (a true San Franciscan) are rich and Tom and his wife Monique (a southern belle born in Savannah, Georgia) are middle class citizens. The gift of a quarter-million dollar Tudor on lake Michigan is a lot for Tom and his wife Monique to accept. Tom is sterile but Terry fathers his children. Together the men open a small business but work to create a very successful international business. Sudden wealth changes their lives. From Sailing Lake Michigan and the Pacific to the power of a corporate boardroom lives become entrapped into secrets and hysteria. Spoof is an adventurous story of couples, friends and business associates but also describes the secretive loving relationships of a charismatic man.

Feelings of ambivalence pervade young Henry's adolescence as he becomes involved with both Barby and her sister. Brandy, Barby's older sister, seduces Henry, and their secret sexual escapades entrap them in a love they try to ignore. As llenry struggles to endure the love of two sisters, college and careers carry them into adulthood. Then tragedy strikes, and the two families unite as they try to hold on to some kind of normalcy. These were the innocent years. The two teenagers sat and talked while warming themselves. "Henry, I hate you." Henry looked at Barby bewildered. "What did I do now?" Barby reached out and pulled his hair over his head covering his face. "Your hair looks nicer than mine. I refuse to associate with a boy who has hair like that. It's bad enough that it's longer but it looks nicer too!" He looked at her rolling his eyes back and forth. "So wash it once in a while." She slapped him across his shoulder with her open palm. "Ouch," she said. "Now you are trying to hurt me." Her face broke into a repressed grin. "Barby, you hit me, l didn't hit you." She pouted now, sticking out her bottom lip. "Do you think I'm pretty?" Henry put his hands over his face hiding his response. "I think Brandy is pretty," he said in a low voice-almost a whisper.

For decades, Fred Burton, a key figure in international counterterrorism and domestic spycraft, has secretly been on the front lines in the fight to keep Americans safe around the world. Now, in this hard-hitting memoir, Burton emerges from the shadows to reveal who he is, what he has accomplished, and the threats that lurk unseen except by an experienced, world-wise few. In this globe-trotting account of one counterterrorism agent’s life and career, Burton takes us behind the scenes to reveal how the United States tracked Libya-linked master terrorist Abu Nidal; captured Ramzi Yusef, architect of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; and pursued the assassins of major figures including Yitzhak Rabin, Meir Kahane, and General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the president of Pakistan–classic cases that have sobering new meaning in the treacherous years since 9/11. Here, too, is Burton’s advice on personal safety for today’s most powerful CEOs, gleaned from his experience at Stratfor, the private firm Barron’s calls “the shadow CIA.”
