Writing about one’s own life is not a simple task. It consumes years and years of research in addition to the recalling of experiences, many of which are unsettling. I began with an incident regarding a position applied for along with a co-worker who was like myself, a former Philadelphia police officer. How, I asked, can deference fail to exist in the arena of public service? Over the years, I have come to see that not only I have experienced these mishaps, but there are untold others, too numerous to mention. I just happen to be of African-American ancestry. This book is for them. It’s for the soldiers and airmen I served with in Vietnam, indeed it is for generations of Americans yet unborn. There is always a struggle between good and evil. Plato describes it as a two-headed horse, each wanting to go in opposite directions. In law-enforcement this arises when innocence crosses the path of corruption. In the final analysis this is to let us not forget those who tried to serve.

In this powerful and inspiring memoir, a Pakistani immigrant shares his story of finding new freedoms and a new faith in America. It’s easy to talk about freedom. But unless someone has lived in a world that suffocates freedom, it’s difficult to appreciate the liberty found in America. This is the true story of a Pakistani Muslim who immigrates to the United States for college and discovers five transformational freedoms along the way: the freedom to fail and start over, to love, to choose one’s faith, to be an entrepreneur, and to self-govern. Contrasting these precious freedoms with the life he lived in Pakistan, Ali’s story reveals that God is the true source of liberty as He works in people’s lives to bring about redemption. A call to value and preserve American freedoms, Beyond the Golden Door is also an invitation for readers to consider ultimate freedom in Jesus Christ.

Inspired by the murder of millionaire financier and banker Ted Ammon: A tax investigator races against time to save the love of his life—and the man who stole her from him Every tax cheat needs a lawyer, and every lawyer needs an investigator like Max Smoller. Max knows the tax code’s intricacies better than Uncle Sam himself, and lawyers pay handsomely for him to dig up their clients’ dirt, ensuring that no nasty surprises come out during trial. After years in the business, Smoller knows that every crook tells the same story—a tale forged by self-pity and unwavering greed. But he never thought he would hear that story from his former business partner Joe Dempsey. Even at the start of their once-promising partnership, Smoller knew Dempsey’s brilliance would eventually catapult his friend toward success beyond their shabby office on San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill. But Smoller never expected his lover, Christina Lawson, to follow Dempsey out the door. Years after the betrayal, Lawson and Dempsey are separated, and the IRS is nipping at their heels. With prosecution, bankruptcy, and prison on the horizon, it’s up to Smoller to save his former partner and the only woman he ever loved—before it’s too late. The Golden Gate Is Red is a riveting tale of avarice and betrayal, set against a vivid San Francisco backdrop.
