“Twins”…?

 

OR is there a more unusual connection between these two women who keep finding themselves in the middle of mayhem ― both in the U.S. and abroad?

Sophisticated Gee, born of privilege, a socialite philanthropist in Boston, and Karen, a sporty down-to-earth private detective. . .yet inhabiting the same body. And in love with the same man (the family’s hunky private pilot).

This tongue-in-cheek romp follows these “two” on their multi-continent adventures as they track down killers, confront para-military groups, and end up in the crosshairs of an international drug cartel ― changing locations and jetting hither and yon as quickly as they change a shade of lipstick. Yet they also manage to tackle a range of today’s most pressing issues including government corruption, gun control, money laundering, hurricane relief, and more.

WELCOME to this fast-paced, imaginative, and idealized reality where the world’s ills are often tidied up in lightning quick fashion, providing some utopian escapism for anyone who enjoys a mystery, inside a puzzle, inside a riddle as there’s also a classic whodunnit enfolded herein―with yet another startling twist at this tale’s unorthodox conclusion . . .

“Black Gold”…OIL…the magic bullet of liquid petroleum not only propels all manner of people-movers globally, it’s also a component of more than 6,000 products—everything from motorcycle helmets, to vitamin capsules, to ink. But who DISCOVERS these critical—and elusive—fossil fuels of oil & gas?

MEET A WILDCATTER whose back-in-the-day journey from the hills of New York, to the ice fields of Alaska, to the plains of the Midwest brings the reader along on this complex quest to SEE underground. Here’s an insider’s look at the petroleum industry of the latter 20th century—and what geologist Thomas E. Cochrane experienced along the way.

Back jacket endorsement by the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Historical Society (where the bulk of the book’s story is set).
