              "Jim Lynch revisits the turbulent Muldoon Lange years with the shrewd insight of a political cartoonist. From 1980 to 1986 he had his cartoons published in the Taranaki Daily News and the New Zealand Times.

              Patch Munson is feeling queasy. He has killed Aaron Fein, the owner-operator of the Fein Center for Women, in Tampa, Florida. He confessed his sin to a Catholic priest, only to find that the priest is a sinner also. Father Tim Hanlon is leaving the priesthood after learning that ...he has fathered a child with a black supermodel, Carol Mays. Perplexed, paranoid and petrified, Munson kidnaps Mays and stows her away a bomb shelter on his family's Alabama farm, while he tries to solve his mounting problems. While authorities in Florida and Alabama tighten down the focus of their investigation to Munson's home city of Mobile, Alabama, Munson attempts to work out a resolution with his prisoner. As the police and FBI come closer and closer to the Munson family farm, the Alabama coast is battered by a Category 5 Hurricane, colloquially known as Hurricane Jesus. Munson, Mays, Hanlon and two Florida State police officers all end up in the bomb shelter, during the pass over of Hurricane Jesus. Emotions run high, as the ensemble of Seekers, Sinners and Simpletons are threatened by terrifying wind above them and the rising flood waters that seep into the bomb shelter. Throughout the story the characters are faced with extraordinary choices in their own spiritual explorations for meaning in their lives. Some do it with humor and some do it with angst, but they are all forced to come to grips with their own humanity along the way.

              Even a billion dollars can't liberate Frank Babcock. He knows that his jealousy has contributed to the murder of Wayne Johnson, the man he once believed had illegitimately fathered his own heir, Fox Babcock. The wrong Johnson was murdered. Mickey Johnson not Wayne Johnson was Fox... Babcock's biological father. The Babcock/Johnson Feud persists in the third volume of the Generation Series as the two Long Island families battle through another iteration of generational loathing. The animosity between the Babcocks and the Johnsons escalates against a new backdrop of global instability - a product of racial unrest; radical religious extremism and the technological breakthrough of the World Wide Web. The final decade of the twentieth century brings the Babcock/Johnson Feud into a New York courtroom, even as global economic inequities bring the United States into a global kangaroo court replete with terrorist judges. Techies, Trials & Terrorists takes the feuding Long Island families through a decade of desperation and distrust that culminates in the long awaited murder trial of Frank Babcock. The trial itself rehashes a 25 year old love quadrangle that resulted in the ambiguous parentage of Dr. Fox Babcock. Fox Babcock is now married and has children of his own. But just like his mother, Fox Babcock has not remained faithful to his spouse. In fact Fox has parented an illegitimate child of his own. New familial discord lurks in the background as the murder trial unfolds. And while carnal revelations, during seamy trial testimony, recount old erotic discord between the Babcocks and the Johnsons, the more recent sexual liaisons further undermine any possibility of rapprochement. Meanwhile, Frank Babcock has a new Jewish bride, a new Christian son and a new Saudi Arabian mistress. His business takes him throughout the Middle East even as his young wife remains in New York parenting her sister's child. Life becomes ever more intriguing for the billionaire as the existence of hi
