"The world is made for people who aren’t cursed with self-awareness."

 (the character) Annie Savoy in the film Bull Durham.

Dear Friends:

Like Annie Savoy, we all share something in common ? a self-awareness of deception, of knowing our fellow countrymen remain deceived. Many of us still feel the angst, anger, and frustration that comes with knowing the guilty remain unpunished and that the masses and media refuse to see what lies hidden in plain sight. We toss rocks at ponds, never registering a splash.

Several years ago my 8th novel, The SHELL GAME was released ? an attempt to reveal the truth through a work of fiction. While it succeeded in exposing facts to about 30,000 new Americans who otherwise might never surf a 911truth site or read a David Ray Griffin book (or sign a Richard Gage petition) the book flew far above the radar and in the end, I was shot down. Literally. I had major bookings mysteriously cancelled and received threats at 4 AM on my private unlisted phone.

On Monday, October 4th, my tenth and best thriller, GRIM REAPER: End of Days will be released in every major bookstore in the U.S. The novel, which lends itself perfectly for , is a modern-day Dante’s that taps into the public’s angst toward politicians, Wall Street, and the greed and corruption that has mired society. The story takes place in the winter of 2012 when a man-made version of the Black Plague is unleashed in Manhattan . The hero, an injured war vet returning from his fourth deployment in , must journey through nine circles of suffering in order to bring the only vaccine to his estranged wife and child. Like "," the tale is an allegory of the soul’s journey; at the same time the book reveals closely guarded secrets about 9/11, the wars in Iraq, (and ?) and the real source of the 2001 anthrax attacks — an illegal Black Ops program with tentacles in Ft. Detrick, — "weaponized" by a p rivate CIA-run lab in (Battelle) which continues to produce biological weapons that could wipeout humanity (paid for by our tax dollars!).

GRIM REAPER draws historical parallels to 2012 that are frightening. It will be exactly 666 years from the prophesied 2012 date that the Black Plague struck and , wiping out half the world’s population. The "Great Mortality" broke out following a period of greed and war, famine and corruption, with false prophets exhorting Christians to slaughter tens of thousands of Jews and Muslims. It was this near End of Days event that gave rise to a new figure depicted in 14th century art ? the Grim Reaper.

GRIM REAPER is a Trojan Horse for 911truth.

Revealed to both the hero and reader is the truth about September 11th, and when it hits home, it will hit home factually, concisely, and in a manner that gets the reader to think. It is the catalyst to the story, concealed beneath layers of deception. It is the 9th circle of hell.

GRIM REAPER is also a mainstream tool that can lead the masses to the Richard Gages and David Ray Griffins. It will appear on the front tables of every Barnes & Noble, every Borders, every Books-A-Million, and in every major airport. It is a great story, yet one that causes the reader to think, or in the case of 9/11 Re-Think. It is the unexpected rock that, when tossed in a pond, causes major ripples.

I am contacting you now as a fellow rock thrower, requesting your help.


1. First and foremost, read the book yourself. It will reach you in unexpected ways.

Two years of soul-searching and research affected the writing, including an incident that saw my wife held at gunpoint and duct taped in an armed robbery. A short time after my wife’s incident (and my own diagnosis of Parkinsons), another crime took place in our town — a troubled father murdered his wife and twin sons on the boys’ seventh birthday. We knew the family — the twins took karate lessons with my own eight year old son.

GRIM REAPER deals with good and evil and the supernal/spiritual justice system that affects us all. It draws meaning from a 4,000 year old ancient wisdom (Kabbalah) passed down from God to Abraham the Patriarch without a trace of religious dogma. In the times of our greatest darkness, its Light burns brightest. READ THE BOOK FOR YOURSELF.

2. Recommend it as a MUST-READ to family and friends.

3. Be the rock that sends the biggest ripples. Contact your movers & shakers. Send them the review and 30 second video links below. Drive WORD OZF MOUTH. Why? Because it will bring Light into your own life in ways you cannot imagine. It can heal our world. Yes, that sounds like an arrogant statement, but read the review below from an ultra-conservative NON 911Truther. Even though he despises 911 truth, HE STILL CALLS THE BOOK A MUST-READ!

I share BELOW two excerpts from GRIM REAPER, one regarding 9/11 truth, the other perhaps more important. I can be reached at Meg82159@aol.com
