Genre: Military

It is 1970, and Jon Zachery is a young United States Navy pilot who wants nothing more than to gain combat experience during the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, his patriotic sacrifice is of no value to the navy or the nation. His squadron has been slated to decommission with most of its pilots destined for dead-end jobs. As the pro-war lieutenant awaits his orders and drowns his sorrows in whiskey, his wife, Teresa, prays and hopes for a better tomorrow. Navy Lieutenant Amos Kane is a natural stick-and-throttle jockey who is known as Cool Hand Duke in the air and a prankster on the ground. As his dreams of being an attack pilot in ’Nam are taken away, he begins dating Charlotte Wilkins, who convinces him to adopt an antiwar philosophy. When orders cause Zachery and Kane’s paths to converge in a bunkroom aboard an aircraft carrier in the Tonkin Gulf, it quickly becomes evident that the two lieutenants have vastly different viewpoints. As tragedy strikes and antagonism escalates, everyone discovers just how quickly life can change. In this military thriller, the paths of two navy pilots come together in a JO bunkroom during the Vietnam War where their perspectives clash, instigating life-changing consequences.

This book presents research in three new areas: Sunday liturgies, homilies, and pastoral concepts.

Next I present the findings about the Sunday liturgies in 100 churches, 50 in Guatemala and 50 the U.S. The following chapter analyzes 100 Sunday homilies in comparison to lay talks, homilies by Fr. Robert Barron, and evangelical sermons. In one more chapter I discuss basic concepts for pastoral research. Chapter 6 discusses the consequences of papal centralization for church renewal.

Author: Jan Walters

Genre: Crime Fiction
Format: Ebook

“The story left me ready for more adventures with all the characters. I look forward to the next book from this author!”

- Kelly Stuhr, Senior Des Moines Police Officer

Brett O’Shea is a young street cop in Des Moines trying to make detective. He works by the book and doesn’t believe in hocus-pocus. When a killer begins terrorizing the streets of his city, Brett is forced to alter his view of the paranormal world when a ghost appears in his bedroom.

Al is an irreverent, rule-breaking ghost, and his appearance forces Brett to reassess all his no-nonsense beliefs. Logic goes right out the window when Al offers to help catch the man terrorizing the city as well as solve the murder of his detective grandfather in 1933.

It soon becomes apparent the killer lurking in the dark corners of Des Moines has strange capabilities. Brett and Al are on a supernatural rollercoaster, and they find danger at every turn. How is Brett supposed to stop a killer with otherworldly powers, and what does the murderer have to do with his grandfather? To save the city, Brett and Al must become a half dead crime fighting duo or lose everything.
