About This Book
Yes, he was a fanatic, with dangerous delusions about his God-given mission. But for his followers, he was the one man who could bring down the regime and deliver reform and relief to an oppressed people. That’s why the authorities had decided he needed to die – and then vanish, his body dumped at sea. Out of sight, out of mind.
Jude had set it up perfectly and his rival would be eliminated. But now, before it was too late, he had a decision to make. Would he save Jesus?
We’ve all heard the story a thousand times – how Jesus was betrayed by Judas Iscariot. But never told by the perpetrator. What was the motive? How was it planned? Who else was involved?
Pilate’s Bag is a steamy short story that brings the biblical characters to life in a shockingly modern context. Imaginative, provocative, relevant, it’s the perfect e-read for the thoughtful reader who loves a crazy story. Or vice versa.
The Lebanese Troubles
About This Book
Life in this beautiful old city offered everything. Mediterranean sun just two hours away from mountain snow. Exciting new friends – a madcap American journalist and his exotic Palestinian girlfriend. For newcomers to Beirut Richard and Claire Devine, there was no telling where the world ended and heaven began.
As clashes break out in the city suburbs, everyone knows it’s no problem. ‘The fighting will stop at the weekend so they can get to the beach.’ It doesn’t. And lives change. Forever.
Mysterious, funny, nerve-tingling, tragic. Join this Mid-East adventure with other readers, who say:
“A rollercoaster ride of emotions, real life characters, and scenes that I feel I have lived myself”
“The Lebanese background is simply wonderfully done, from the mountain idylls through the city grime to the decadence of the casinos and the variety of Lebanese characters encountered”
“I want readers to find this novel and share with me the joy of reading it … I can’t recommend this novel enough, or the intelligence and ingenuity of its author”
Waiting For Orders
About This Book
It started as a routine training mission in the desert. How was old Gray to know that he would end up changing history? In this short sharp sci-fi satire, author Alain Miles reveals the truth about everything – science, religion, terrorism, climate-change, consumerism, and Wordsworth. To enjoy this story at its best, read it aloud in the style of a young Jack Nicholson.
“I read through the first quarter of it without knowing what I was in for. Well played, Mr. Miles. As soon as I reached that sentence (that hinge, that sentence that makes you stop short and go “Wait a second…”), I had to click back and make sure I hadn’t gone mentally astray at some point.”
“A truly original story. I’ve certainly never heard of, let alone read, a story where the main character is a … no, I can’t give that away. Just read the story to find out for yourself.”
