By Alex Lindsey
Publisher: Crooked Creek Publishing
Published: February 2014
ISBN: 978-0991517800
Pages: 244
Genre: Christian Fiction, Futuristic Christian Thriller

The appearance of the antichrist, false prophet, third temple, mark of the beast, world-wide plague, and a one world government serve as the backdrop for this action packed thriller.

Full of twists, turns, romance, and the headlines of tomorrow, The Man of Lawlessness takes the reader through chase scenes in Rome, top secret laboratories, ancient secret ceremonies, survival in the Colorado Rockies, subterranean archeology, and ultimately the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The paths of FBI agent Brooke Decker and CIA agent Dillon Knowles cross while investigating different aspects of the same world events. The bond between them grows as they work together to thwart an ancient plan to rule the world – and to keep each other alive.

Also included is an excerpt from the Sons of Perdition (Release Date: March 2015)

What if: The fallen sons of god, the Bene Ha’elohim, were still with us today? Aliens were part of a great deception perpetrated by fallen angles to turn mankind away from the truth? Other dimensions really do exist and much of the war between good and evil takes place beyond our visible universe? The spirits of the Nephilim who died in the flood are the demons that plague humanity to this day?

The residents of Hell want more than worship from humans; they actually want to consume their spirits for eternity – feeding off terror, anguish, pain, and hopelessness?

In The Sons of Perdition, the new action thriller from Alex Lindsey, all these things are in play in the ultimate battle for the souls of man.

Collection of Stories – Driving In Budapest

Driving in BudapestDriving In Budapest
Bu Gary Brill
ISBN: 978-1491289235
Pages: 216
Genre: Chick Lit, Collection of Stories, Romantic, History, Family,

Driving In Budapest tells the stories of regular people trying their best to navigate through life while they also try to navigate through one of Europe’s most fascinating and beautiful cities. Each one must find their destination while dealing with one way streets, clogged bridges, bully drivers and crazy taxis. There is no map to tell them how to get to where they’re going, they just have to keep trying to find their way.

From the Author:
Budapest is one of the most fascinating cities in the world, with one foot firmly planted in the west and the other just as firmly in the east. A score of armies have marched through, usually going east in victory and west in defeat. The city is over 1,000 years old, and it’s narrow streets and broad avenues make it a challenge to drive in while it’s history and flavor can make it difficult to navigate your way through life there as well. This collection of stories show how a disparate group of people do just that, live their lives with the ghosts of the past and the hopes for the future in a city that knows both. Meanwhile, the Danube just flows by, taking it all in……

Recent Praise for Driving in Budapest:

4 Stars
“The Cambridge Book Clubs in Massachusetts voted on this book, and it was great! It was clearly written with not just care of the characters, but an innovative understanding of people. Budapest has a magic and spirit of character, of history and pride not unlike the Londons and Parises of the world. I thank Gary Brill for sharing such a wonderful reflection of his experiences abroad in this mystical city.

There’s dropped-in reminders of history, especially of World War II and Communism. You’ll learn a few things, so if you get easily frustrated when you don’t understand the historical significance of a story…first of all, don’t be that person, because you’re missing out. There’s romance, comedy, family drama and mystery. Read this book and find out which of these five stories is your favorite” Tara Kelly, assistant book club organizer for Cambridge Book Clubs in Massachusetts

5 Stars
“I enjoyed reading the book which is composed of five short stories. This engaging easy to read book intertwines romance, mystery, and history. The author does a nice job drawing the reader into feeling as if he/she is in Budapest. The reader not only senses the grittiness of the post-communistic city and the frenetic pace of city life but also the beauty and culture that surrounds Budapest. Even though each short story could stand on its own, some of the characters connected throughout the book. The characters are interesting, often showing resilience and eternal hope.” – Vicki Moroughan, Book Reviewer
