  • Hands Across The Sea

    What happens when real talk gets a little too real? That’s the 800-lb. gorilla confronting the Office of the Sheriff.

    This character-driven saga puts the rear echelon in the crosshairs as Brian Cook gives it to you straight, no chaser with his debut vehicle, Hands Across the Sea.

    Hands Across the Sea delves into the professional and personal sides of the badge where the rubber really meets the road. Explore how the Command staffers of The Office of the Sheriff, known as the Agency, come face-to-face with the unexpected: the changing of the guard.

    Their larger-than-life Sheriff, Garrison Cottrell, abruptly resigns and passes the torch to his hand-picked successor – Brendan Callaghan.

    Explore how their egos and isms intertwine with their leadership styles and principles, and come to light during professional and personal situations that will test their character and patience beyond enforcing the law. Gear up for what happens when the door shuts and the dialogue begins, and sometimes not in that order.

    Cook doesn’t just peer back the curtain, he pulls it down with a look inside the Agency that often takes on the guise of Peyton Place. But we’re talking about professionals, right? Hands Across the Sea is the first in a literary series.

  • Hate in Those Eyes: Bullying To Die For

    At age 85 I had published my first “Tryist” as an author, “A Cruise To Die For.” I referred to it as my Mini “Novel” covering 50 pages that can be read going up the elevator, great during halftime and easily slid under the door of your neighbor when finished.

    My current work “Voyage to Cryon”, deals with Cryonics, the preservation of humans in ice chambers with the
    hope of resuscitation in the future. A scheduled Anti-Aging Cruise sponsored by the Cosmetic industry changes course to indoctrinate unsuspecting candidates to prospective reincarnation and lasting life.

    My third book “Tunnel Vision” not yet published may be wallet size.

    “What’s it like being 80” is somewhat biographical and a comical relief in accepting yourself being “old”
    and left to the reader to edit his own experiences in this Octogenarian Society, with limited (By attrition) membership. I have recently combined six books, “A Cruise to Die For”, “Tunnel”, “Diner for Two”, “Walk with the Son”, “What’s it Like Being 80” and “Cryon” into One volume entitled, “The Books of Rathe.”

    I have just completed “Hate in Those Eyes” and “Octogenarian Guide to \Survival.” (Unedited)

    At age 89 I still have a lust for life or whatever is left of it, so I keep on writing until the Great Author Above Closes His book on me.

  • Heirs of Abraham

    More than ever before, we learn about today’s Middle Eastern wars as the animosity between the Arab world and Israel escalates. “Will there ever be peace?” everyone asks.

    Attempting to answer that question, Heirs of Abraham is a historical family saga stretching over a time span of almost four thousand years. Starting in 1948 when the State of Israel was founded and ending with terror in Jerusalem in modern times, it follows the lives of the Biblical nomad Abraham, who is the foundation of the world’s three great religions – Islam, Judaism and, indirectly, Christianity – and his two sons. There is Ishmael, born of an Egyptian slave whose descendants are today’s Arabs. And there is Isaac, son of Abraham’s beloved wife and the Jews’ patriarch.

    Set against the backdrops of Ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and Israel – of wars and famines, goat-haired tents and kings’ palaces – this is the story of real people whose actions will have an everlasting effect on all future generations and worlds.

    Following faithfully the Holy Bible’s accounting in Genesis, we meet Abraham, who struggles with faith, power, love and cowardice. And his women – Sarah, the wife and Hagar, the slave – whose love for him and hatred for each other never die. Finally, there are the two brothers’ descendants who have been pitted against each other for thousands of years in the age old battle for survival and “the land”.
