A lan Reece is a young, unhappy vet, who thinks that getting called out in the night is about the worst thing that could ever happen to him.
This time, he’s right. A nocturnal encounter with a miracle will quickly turn into a nightmare, and as the world collapses around him, Alan will realise that he alone holds the key to a century-old secret.
Accompanied by Kate, a psychic-turned-physicist, and George, a credulous reporter, Alan will pit himself against a man who has already conquered death, and now has designs on the world.
Alan is going to discover that there are some things that really shouldn’t happen to a vet.

I magine that Kafka, Borges and Wittgenstein, after binging on Fu Manchu novels and the Illuminatus trilogy, sat down to write a spy thriller, with a little help from Lewis Carroll. Set the novel in China in 1978–an isolated empire of conspiracy, deception and delusion–and tune in to Radio Beijing for the astonishing announcement: China will unilaterally disarm. Is this a Great Leap Forward for mankind–or a plot to take over the world?
Into this surreal landscape, this garden of forking paths, steps Number Five, a master spy of undisclosed nationality. What he finds in China is so shocking, so strange, so far beyond the usual categories of fact or fiction, that he returns a changed man, and the story of his mission must be passed off as fantasy for thirty-five years.
Chairman (now called Chairperson) Mao has passed on, leaving the nation torn between the Gang of Four and the shadowy Red Lotus Clique–and buzzing with rumors of a secret weapon to be unveiled when the disarmament is complete. Five has two weeks to save the West from annihilation. He finds himself stumbling into a shadow show of Foreign Devils, Puppet Emperors, Eunuchs, Revisionist Bandits and Running Dogs of the Imperialists. With help from the beautiful Wild Thing, he gropes his way toward the truth; but first he must face down the dreaded Chinese Olympic ping pong team and the mysterious Doctor who may be the mastermind of all this anarchy.
Die-hard fans of thrillers and spy novels beware: Don’t buy this book unless you’re prepared to suspend your expectations in favor of a story that’s funny, literary and trans-genre’d. On one level this is a spy novel, on another a literary and political satire, on another a philosophical investigation into the limits of knowledge and personal identity. Espionage (as John Le Carré taught us) is about deception, disguise, and the attempt to wrestle knowledge from ambiguous and deceptive appearances.
Does Five ever find the truth? The history of China in the past 25 years proves that given enough time, the surreal becomes the real. Who in 1978 could have foreseen that the Chinese Communist Party would become the world’s leading exponent of capitalism? Who could have predicted an opera about Richard Nixon?
Fans of the Fu Manchu novels by Sax Rohmer, the fictions of Jorge Luis Borges (particularly The Garden of Forking Paths), the film The Last Emperor by Bernardo Bertolocci, and Theravada Buddhism (particularly the Milinda Panha or 100 Questions of King Menander to Nagasena) might find a special interest in this novel.

“ Unintended Consequences is an engrossing, well conceived legal thriller. Most enjoyable.”
- Scott Turow, NY Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent & Innocent
* * *
How much would a father sacrifice for his child?
Nineteen years ago, Indiana police found the body of a young girl, burned beyond recognition and buried in the woods. They arrested George Calhoun for murdering his daughter, and his wife testified against him at the trial. The jury convicted him. Now his appeals have been exhausted, and his execution is just a few weeks away.
George said he didn’t do it. That the body isn’t his little Angelina. But that’s all he’s ever said – no other defense, no other explanation.
Dani Trumball, an attorney for the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, wants to believe him. After all, there was no forensic evidence that the body in the woods was George’s daughter. But if the girl isn’t Angelina, then who is it? And what happened to the Calhouns’ missing daughter?
For nineteen years, George Calhoun has stayed silent. But that’s about to change, and the story he tells Dani–if it’s true–changes everything.

5-STAR PRAISE for “The Chain of Lies”:
“A Great Read! The suspense kept me turning the pages and it had a nice twist of romance. The romance and the suspense were well-balanced and I really enjoyed it!” ~ jne2003, Amazon Reader
“The best one in the series! I absolutely love it! The romance between Emily and Colin makes my heart flutter, but at the same time the murder mystery is a real page turner.” ~ B. Drewett, Amazon Reader
OVERVIEW of The Chain of Lies:
* A headstrong, smokin’ hot lady P.I. with a close circle of friends
* Two suspicious murders and a sex slave ring
* A sexy, heart-throbbing police detective in Paradise Valley
The Chain of Lies is Book 3 in the Paradise Valley Mystery series. Emily Parker’s world was flipped upside down when her private eye husband was killed, and through Books 1 and 2 she began to unravel clues that maybe he wasn’t who he claimed to be.
With the help of her close circle of friends and the sexy new police detective in town, Emily has taken over her late husband’s business and searches for answers to his murder. In the meantime, when disturbing coincidences keep popping up, she suspects there may be a sex slave ring operating in her town. Emily is determined to find out the truth and rescue the girls, even if it means putting her own life in danger.
Sensual and gripping with murder, romance, mystery, and intrigue–think “Sex and the City” meets “Women’s Murder Club”.
More 5-STAR Praise for The Chain of Lies:
“Debra Burroughs does it again! Debra Burroughs writes in such a way you’re sure you know what’s going on, and then there’s a twist and you aren’t sure how it is all going to come together. I hope she has a lot more planned for Emily and her loyal group of friends.” ~ yhavens, Amazon Reader
