If you are a fan of J.D.

Follow along spellbound while the young protagonist tries to piece together the last confusing months of his life—from the day he told him his girlfriend about his decision to drop out of high school and race on the national motorcycle circuit, to the final tragic incident on Hampton Road.

EXECUTIVE DECEIT
EXECUTIVE DECEIT
by David Carl Mielke Rating: 0.0

LENA MILLS IS WASHINGTON, D.C'S WORST NIGHTMARE!

Are you disgusted with the clowns in Washington, who are playing fast and loose with our nation’s credit, stifling our small businesses with onerous new regulations, shrinking the value of our homes and throwing over 400,000 new workers into the ranks of the unemployed each month? Do you believe our President and representatives were sent to D.C. to enact change for the better, yet all we’ve received was change for the worse? Where is the leader with no personal political agenda, who will act in the nation’s best interest? Who is the leader with the clout, determination and mandate to flush corrupt Congressmen from office and restore Constitutional sanity to the nation’s capital?

Her name is LENA MILLS. She is Washington, D.C.’s worst nightmare. Lena thwarts assassination attempts, disrupts Senate committee hearings, forces the President of the United States to confront his past, and brings the nation to the brink of polarized anarchy. And if that’s not enough -- along the way she finds the love of her life.

I think you’ll find our heroine is just the ticket for your summertime blues -- and a wishful cure for our D.C. malaise.

Happy Reading!
