Lawrence Kelter Synopses: By Executive Order is a standalone title by Lawrence Kelter. Two governments have one objective – to stop the flow of narcotics the United States and Israel, old allies in a new war. To win this one, they must sell their souls! The clandestine operation plunges veteran FBI agent, Hal Niecro into the most extraordinary investigation of his career. He has been assigned to investigate the murder of Rachel Rabin, an Israeli national.

Saving Cervantes is a story about a kiss and the man waiting an eternity for it to arrive. One day he sees her, the woman he can never have but must possess. He will give up everything to be with her; not all at once, but bit by insidious bit, until there is nothing left of the world he knows and his only choice is to join her. What would you give to possess the one person you thought could satisfy your deepest emotional hunger?
