Touching base

I apologize for being remiss to post lately, but I've been busy working on the next installment of my Havana Series of thrillers. Twin Powers is a departure from my previous work for at least two reasons: (1) the action centers around the twin girls born to Raymond and Sonia in Killing Castro, and (2) instead of Havana and Mexico, the plotline takes my main characters to Ukraine and the troubled Middle East. Here is a little snippet for you:

"You want a lollyop, little girl?" the man with the weird hat asked in a squeaky voice that sounded to Stephanie like a violin out of tune."Here!" He squawked, sticking his hand in front of her face and blocking her view."Take it!"
