It is a time of war, of clandestine organizations, of governments betraying the people who elected them, but this is not fiction this is reality. In a novel some are calling THE MOST DANGEROUS BOOK IN THE WORLD, the truth behind the events that shook the world on September 11th 2001 is finally revealed in a story which merges fact with fiction into one spine chilling story. A new Concordiant is in charge of the brotherhood of assassins, a Concordiant with a conscience and the determination to put things right. Sending novice assassin Jonesy Jones into the world of underground groups, the tangled web of lies, deceit and merciless killing is slowly unraveled until those who hide in the shadows are finally brought into the light. IT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK. FOREVER.
It should have been an easy assignment, but in Jacob Hamilton's world nothing is. The contact, a middle aged man, left under the wheels of a high speed train, with nothing to show but a folder marked FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. To make matters worse, the target, a Russian petty thief known as Andrei Ovinko, has a secret past, a past that Jacob knows only too well, for you see Ovinko moonlights as an assassin.
In his mind Jacob knows once contracts have been exchanged there is no going back on the deal, however there is one, small, fly in the ointment, the contract has been forged. The question is why and for what purpose?
Bound by his own set of moralistic codes, Jacob knowing he has no choice, begins the hunt in hope, that by finding Ovinko, he will find out who is behind the forgery.
Whether by design or by pure luck, he unwittingly stumbles on a hidden message contained within an old captain's desk submerged in an old shipwreck at the bottom of the Bering Sea, it is this clandestine note from the past that has him asking more questions than he has answers for.
Torn between his devotion to the brotherhood and his desire to decode the hidden message, Jacob begins to ponder his own role as an assassin, a choice (or rather a decision) that will have consequences.
Instead of doing what his asked of him, he does what is needed of him. For once, his life as an assassin in The House Of The Hidden Blade, becomes a paradox of the man history determines him to be.
Frozen in Time, is a gritty mystery-thriller in the tradition of writers like John Sandford, James Patterson, and Kathy Reichs. The action takes place mostly in a small suburban town in eastern Virginia, where Blake Thompson is trying to build a new life for himself after a devastating marriage. Although he's involved in an exciting (if slightly unhealthy) relationship with a sexy stewardess, Blake considers himself more or less an ordinary guy, just one among the thousands who populate his hometown.
But Blake is special…although he doesn't know it yet. He has a stalker: a mysterious, calculating figure who blames Blake for an event that left him constitutionally unable to move forward with his life. Instead of striking at Blake personally, the Stalker exacts his revenge by killing the women Blake loves, maximizing the pain of the man he hates. His actions are directed toward an ultimate, shattering act of violence that will break Blake both mentally and emotionally, and leave him imprisoned for life for crimes that he didn't commit. During the course of the novel, the mysterious Stalker tightens the noose around Blake and his friends, even as Blake begins to experience some hope that he might be able to put his life back together after his divorce. The Stalker has Blake exactly where he wants him when he puts his final plan into motion…or so he thinks, because he hasn't taken into account the toughness and resourcefulness of his final victim.
