Will iconic images recorded in the grooves of an ancient vase unite the Holy Land or rip it further apart?

THE VASE

A novel by Mark M. DeRobertis

Muhsin Muhabi is a Palestinian potter, descended from a long line of potters. His business is run from the same shop owned by his ancestors since the day his forebears moved to Nazareth. The region's conflict saw the death of his oldest son, and rogue terrorists are in the process of recruiting his youngest in their plot to assassinate the Pope and Israeli prime minister.

Professor Hiram Weiss is an art historian at Nazareth’s Bethel University. He is also a Shin Bet operative on special assignment. With the help of fellow agent, Captain Benny Mathias, he plans to destroy the gang responsible for the death of his wife and only child. He puts a bomb in the ancient vase he takes on loan from Muhsin’s Pottery Shop.

Mary Levin, the charming assistant to the director of Shin Bet, has lost a husband and most of her extended family to recurring wars and never-ending terrorism. She dedicates her life to the preservation of Israel, but to whom will she dedicate her heart - the brilliant professor from Bethel University - or the gallant captain who now leads Kidon?

Harvey Holmes, the Sherlock of Haunted Houses, is a Hollywood TV host whose reality show just flopped. When a Lebanese restaurant owner requests his ghost-hunting services, he believes the opportunity will resurrect his career. All he has to do is exorcise the ghosts that are haunting the restaurant. It happens to be located right across the street from Muhsin’s Pottery Shop.

Buy Killer of Killers now!

My Beta Reader is finished with Killer Eyes, which means I'll be going over it one more time, making whatever revisions the Beta Readers suggested, after consideration, of course, and then maybe I'll read it one more time after that. And that's when it will be done and submitted. So now is a good time to purchase your copy of Killer of Killers. Digital or print, whichever you prefer. Digital will get you the copy right away, whereas print might take a couple weeks.

But if you prefer print, which a lot of people still do, then don't wait. Order it today. Because I can promise a slam bam, action packed, adventure in Killer Eyes. Please don't make the conclusion that the title, Killer Eyes, means its a blood fest like a horror show. Sure, there's blood and killing, but it's not a horror show. It's nothing like Friday the 13th, or Nightmare on Elm Street, or those god awful Final Destination movies or the even worse Saw movies.

No, nothing like that. Killer Eyes is another great action packed martial arts adventure, featuring the world's greatest martial artist, Trent Smith. It's the continuation of Killer of Killers, so that's why I suggest you get your copy of Killer of Killers right away. It's a story of justice, really, but not justice as anyone else knows it. The courts offer no true justice. Even Trent Smith's version of justice is questioned by Dominic Buller, a man Trent meets in Killer Eyes. Dominic Buller believes justice is giving a killer the exact same punishment that the killer himself dished out.

If a man killed people by beating them to death, for example, then that man should himself be beaten to death. Not given a quiet painless injection. No. Or the quick death that Trent Smith typically dishes out to killers. No. The killer deserves the same violent and brutal death that he himself dished out. To Dominic Buller, that is true justice.

But I can't give away much more than that. I've already talked plenty about Ming Sang, the Chinese female antagonist in Killer Eyes. And she has a completely unique opinion of justice, as well. So get Killer of Killers today, and then its sequel Killer Eyes should be out later this year. Can't wait.
