six degrees of separation bridge the gap
between the sane and the insane.

Alex Carlysle is a savvy homicide detective highly respected among her peers and on the fast track to make Captain. When her lover becomes the latest victim in a series of brutal murders, the investigation of the killings becomes personal for her. Not only has she lost the only man who ever understood her, but also catching the killer could be the break she has been waiting for concerning her career.

Jade, on the other hand, resides on the opposite side of the law, abiding by a different set of rules - its Jade's way, or no way. Instead of enforcing the law, she is the thorn in its side. Motivated by an urge for revenge, she is a sexy enigma of a serial killer who taunts the police just for the pleasure of it while devouring her
prey in the process. As the hunter becomes the hunted, two women, both at the top of their game, are destined for a massive head-on collision with each other. But the thrill of pursuit is not the only tie
that binds them; they are also both driven by blood shed and a chain of circumstances that began in the subconscious mind.

Ask Nicely and I Might is a racy thriller - fast, furious, and filled with sexy suspense. A wicked game of cat and mouse where time is rapidly running out and with the hunter and hunted lives on the line, they have everything to fight for . . . and everything to lose.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Cutting Truths - 50 Enlightening Slices of Life by Michael Levy

Investigating journalism meets inspirational expressions as Levy explores education, finance, media, mythology, religion, science, philosophy and ancient traditions. 

In Cutting Truths, probing questions are asked;

Are religions based on superstition and fallacies?

Can newspapers, magazines, Internet blogs, TV news and other media outlets be trusted to deliver truthful reports?

If we lose faith in people who deceive where can we turn for authentic information?

Do we really have to suffer and wait till we progress to Heaven before we can enjoy ourselves?

Does hell really exist, if so where is it?

50 enlightening slice of life reveal answers that essentially allow the reader to discover their own home baked truths and find out how real they are. Levy does not say he knows absolute truth, in fact he declares nobody on earth can claim to hold sole possession of truth.

However, Levy does point out what is not true and made-up from intellectual propaganda, myths, fallacies and partial falsehood.

Someone once said; nothing can stop and idea whose time has com … Cutting Truths is right on cue to deliver what the public demand ... A free mind released from hype, flim-flam, sensationalism, skullduggery and outright deceits so that they can enjoy life as nature intended.

Michael explains; in life there are but two pathways from which we can choose;

 On the first pathway, truth can be sliced into little pieces and turned into propaganda and lies. This is then sliced into Perceptions, Ideas, Thoughts, Suggestions = Pits. It is then twisted into be-lie-f and non be-lie-f systems that divide people, which in turn causes mayhem and suffering.

 This path is not compulsory. You have a choice

Alternatively, on pathway two, pre conceived concepts, theories and belief systems are dismantled by truth so that the thinker of the thought lives a genuine fulfilling life without fear or prejudice. In everyone's lifetime, results will speak for themselves … Are you ready to leap into an investment that can produce prosperous self-assurance?

On the bigger world scene the author probes the possibilities of human extinction via the ignorance of tribal divisions, pollution and other man-made follies. He states that only veracity can set humanity free but the question now remains is humanity ready to handle the - Cutting Truths?
