  1. I have an unpublished novella entitled, Saundra. It is a story of high finance double dealing, double crossing and multiple killings. There is a federal investigation that begins with the high heel echos of a sultry beauty that leads Carmine Widelow, Bureau Agent into the longest and nearly fatal week-end of his career. The female culprit has stolen millions from her mother’s killer–her own father, from the vantage point of her high profile position as CFO of one of her father’s business interests. C.T. Crenshaw, her multi-billionaire daddy, has the L.A. police department in is gold-lined pockets, and has gotten away with murder. But will his luck run out when Agent Widelow puts him in the crosshairs of his quick wits and relentless pursuit?
