Earth Escape – foreword by Herb Baker

Earth Escape - 18 Sept 2017

Foreword by Herb Baker
Have you ever wondered how our universe was created? Was it the hand of God – or was it the Big Bang? Or maybe even some combination of the two? Or is there another explanation? If you’re interested in debates on that subject, this is the book for you. And for space nuts like me, examining those questions in the context of the most daring space mission ever attempted from Earth makes this book’s adventure one that I wish did not have an end.
I grew up a few miles from what is now NASA’s Johnson Space Center, went to school with the kids of the original Mercury Seven and Apollo astronauts, and recently retired after a 40+ year career at NASA. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and become friends with many American astronauts over that time and following along with this book’s brave, irreverent, plain-spoken astronaut Jim Tale reminded me of some of those real-life American heroes. No matter how dangerous and life-threatening their mission was, or how many unexpected complications they faced along the way, they were committed to completing their mission and always believed that the rewards were worth the risks.
Jim Tale is captain of the starship, Evolution, and he’s on a journey to a planet, 1400 light years from Earth in hopes of establishing a new home for the human race. The environment on Earth is being destroyed and there’s a real threat of thermonuclear war, so this new colony might be the only hope for survival of the human race. I found it striking that the concerns over the environment and worries about nuclear missiles and the future of our planet described in this book have never been more timely than they are today.
If you’re one of those people like me that believe that the odds are very high that there is intelligent life somewhere out there in our vast universe, this book will give you some ideas about what those beings may look and act like. There’s also plenty of danger, drama, suspense, humor, and more than a few surprises. Ad astra! (“to the stars”)

THE ONE … will actually make your stomach tighten as you whip thru the pages!

The One - 15 Sept 2017

“I loved it. I love the author and I love Keno – the main character in this series, that about sums up my review! In my humble opinion Real Laplaine is actually better than Harlan Coben and/or Nelson Demille. Try his books and I believe you will agree. Keeno is a man’s man, its miraculous that he and his partner are even alive. But he is smart, quick witted and gets the job done – HIS way. THE ONE is the latest in a series that will actually make your stomach tighten as you whip thru the pages! Each and every one of Laplaine’s books are treasures to be read. Not JUST the Keeno series. He makes the slightly possible become incredibly probable and does not let go of one iota of the readers interest. – Reviewer

Twilight Visitor – a geopolitical and existential thriller “… comparable with the best of Dan Brown or Jack Higgins”

New Twilight Visitor Cover WEB

A geopolitical and existential thriller!

As a brutal war erupts on the other side of the globe, Mateus Cordozo, a bio-engineer, unaware that the conflict is rapidly approaching a melting point, is vacationing in his hometown of Afife, Portugal. He’s trying to find balance again, some sense of meaning in his life, so he leaves everything in his hotel room, buys a bottle of wine, some cheese and a pack of cigarettes and sits alone on a desolate and blustery beach as far away from people as he possibly can. His solitude is broken when a strange and beautiful woman comes along and suddenly changes everything. Mateus soon discovers that their meeting was not by chance, and that she has come to show him how he can and must play a critical role in stopping the imminent global nuclear debacle that is only hours away from happening; moreover, she reveals things to him which will alter the course of humanity.

A nuclear engagement between China and Iran? It’s not what it looks like.

Twilight Visitor ad 13 April 2017

In my book, Twilight Visitor, a contemporary thriller and fiction based on very real circumstances facing our world today, especially with nuclear proliferation back on the rise, China, desperate to feed its teetering energy infrastructure, suddenly and brutally invades Iran to take over its oil fields. Overwhelmed by the attack, the Iranian leader is pushed to the edge and finally does the one thing that no one expected would happen – he fires a nuclear warhead at Beijing, informing them that they have 8 minutes to put a halt to their invasion, or else. Some will say, “See, I knew it, Iran had nukes…” Actually, that wasn’t the point of my book, and in the end, the outcome is not what you think – not at all. It was clearly my purpose to put a spotlight on an issue and a major propaganda campaign propagated mostly by the US intelligence and military establishment, making Iran out to be a threat to world order and peace should they ever get their hands on nuclear weapons. Twilight Visitor presents an entirely different scenario, and its true message is not what it appears at the beginning of the book. With that disclaimer, I invite you to read the book with an open mind and take a different perspective, because it is my belief that the real enemies to world peace are not sitting in Iran – far from it.
