WELCOME TO THE JAKE OLIVER MYSTERY NOVEL...A Three Part Series.
In VOYAGE OF DECEPTION, Jake and his family enter a darker world than anyone could have imagined involving, Chinese mobsters, a corrupt labor union boss and an international assassin. Jake masterfully juggles those making demands of him and unravels a mystery hidden within the historic Wilford Plaza Hotel in San Francisco and exposes the individual that has created a diabolical plan to disgrace those around him, all for personal gain from a voyage of deception that took place 70 years prior!
In A FAMILY’S DECEPTION, set at an 80 year old resort in Southern California, Jake and his family encounter organized crime, unexplained supernatural phenomenon, and murder linked to events that started with two immigrant brothers, the founders of the resort, whose wealth, power and corruption led to anger, hostility and murder that carried on from generation to generation splitting the Palermo dynasty in two.
In ECHO FROM THE PAST, my third novel planned, Jake Oliver must return home to deal with a family emergency and is inexplicably drawn to a historic resort, built at the turn of the century, in Southern Indiana. Inside are echoes from the past related to unsettled events involving crime, corruption and murder. Jake’s career and relationship with his family are in jeopardy as he investigates a mystery involving the resort that is also tied to his own family's heritage!
