A Bullet For The Environment

Author: George Laidlaw

Synopsis: Youth no longer accept what is told to them. No longer are they willing, like their parents, to believe those in power are truly responsible and caring. Too many examples of their failure in parliament, or of disasters seen on nightly TV news, have proved that trust is no longer possible. The arguments of governments, as well as the positions taken by big companies, encounter disbelieving minds. Youth of many nations are rebelling against hollow claims of environmental protection by oil and gas companies that are harvesting natural resources. It is the youth who hold the key to change ... that key for some, is murder. 268pp.

The epidemic that spread across the world killed millions of people and the young were more susceptible than the middle aged. Thousands of soldiers on each side of the war died within days of contracting the disease. Ian Showmaker's uncle died of that pandemic. An expert in disease prevention he also succumbed to it. Perhaps that's why his nephew took up the study of disease. His expertise brings him to evidence of a terrible secret. Another weapon of war as a German officer in 1918, carrying three ampoules of the dreaded Spanish flu came to Scotland looking for Nigel Showmaker. Then in 1944, Hitler is anxious to find a solution that will destroy his enemies and the search for the missing ampoules brings Ian Showmaker and a technician Nel Gywn into the hands of the Germans who in their research laboratories are perfecting an antidote. Once that antidote is found England will be infected as easily as sending over a V-2 rocket with a few grams of death into London. 273pp.

Tasseled Warrior

Author: George Laidlaw

Ever since his ancestor Karl Toxopeus had fought the Zulu horde and endured British occupation and their concentration camps, he and Boer ancestors hated the British and anyone remotely associated with them.

His discovery in America showed that once the Americans had joined the British after Pearl Harbour, America had turned into a huge industrial giant producing planes, ships, bombs and anything that would help them defeat Hitler and his Nazis. Hiding in America even after the Germans were defeated didn't seem out of character, he switched to another fatherland, not Germany but the Soviet Union and from America he provided more top-secret information than any other spy or mole inside America. Only once had someone nearly caught him, Alex Harman, an FBI agent had paid with his life when he made a mistake. Now that man's son, a wet behind the ears FBI agent and a young girl were snooping and had picked up his trail. Well, he had spent forty years avoiding detection and he could deal with Joseph Harman and his girl friend Leigh Morewood. Just because his hair was white Van Loon didn't hesitate when his life was in danger. Pulling a trigger and removing an irritation was something that was necessary. He would never be caught. 285pp.
