The Globe—It’s PUBLISHED!


The Globe is now available for users of the Amazon Kindle and those who have loaded the free Kindle Reading App on their PC, Mac, Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPod, iPad, or other compatible iThingy®.  This novel was two years in the making and took an incredible amount of research.  It is, I believe, the best thing I’ve written to date, and I’m sure it will leave you clutching your Kindle device and perched on the edge of your favorite reading chair.

The Globe is currently enrolled in Amazon’s new Kindle Select program, and thus will be available for the time being only through Amazon—at least for the first ninety days of its release.  After that, I’ll reevaluate and decide whether to remove The Globe from Kindle Select exclusivity and make it available for the Barnes & Noble Nook.

If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, this means that The Globe is also available to read for free using Amazon’s Kindle Book Lending Program, which allows members to borrow one book a month for their Kindle or Kindle Reading App device.

And for those who want to know about The Globe:

The Globe38,500 tons of ocean plying opulence housing in its fabulous apartments some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

Reynard Chevalier—The Globe’s security officer.  An expatriate American with a new name, a new country, a new life, and a past that is rapidly catching up and threatening to destroy him.

Staff Captain Katarina Giordano—Reynard’s boss during the day, his lover at night.

Jane Hanover—The Globe’s latest resident.  The fiancé from Reynard’s previous life.  The woman who has sent Reynard’s past careening on a collision course toward his all too vulnerable present.

Charles Hanover, IIIJane’s philandering husband.  A man who rationalizes his infidelities by demanding that his wife also find solace outside their marriage.

Security Officer Sarah Brighton—Reynard’s amorous Number 2.  A woman too young for Reynard and too determined to accept no for an answer.

Sterling Heyward—The Globe’s reclusive owner and Reynard’s best friend and employer.  A man whose enormous wealth was built spilling the blood of others.

The Globe Slasher—A sadistic sociopath with a very large chef’s knife and an insatiable blood lust for the rich and beautiful.  A serial killer who has reached into the distant past to find inspiration for his perverse grotesqueries.

Louis Guignard—The French police captain.  A man stationed in Saint Barts, hundreds of miles from The Globe.  A man walking Reynard through his investigation via a very tenuous internet connection.  A man who knows that it is only matter of time before the Globe Slasher turns on the one person aboard The Globe who can stop the slayings—Reynard Chevalier.
