A Duty to Betray

By Kelly Moreno

Sugg. Retail $15.95

Mental health professionals are required by law to keep patient disclosures confidential, yet the law also requires them to “warn and protect” anyone their patient is likely to harm. A Duty to Betray plunges Dr. Ricardo Ruiz, a young psychologist just beginning his career, squarely into the middle of these two seemingly irreconcilable legal obligations.

Set inside the famed Camarillo State Hospital on California’s Central Coast, A Duty to Betray draws the reader into this legal, ethical, and ultimately moral dilemma when Mr. Tran, one of Dr. Ruiz’ patients, reveals a potentially lethal secret during therapy. Cat and mouse confrontations between the two thrust the “tell — don’t tell” conflict into sharp definition since Dr. Ruiz knows that, either way, his decision will have deadly consequences.

Druids

By Nicholas Checker

Druids is a medieval fantasy adventure of an isolated lad born with an eerie sense that earns him the suspicion and contempt of those who fail to see it as a gift. He joins with two renowned knights – both caught up in a terse gender rivalry – while on a perilous quest to liberate a ruined land from a druid-lord’s deranged sorcery. It raises images of a nerve-wracking game of chess come to life: a broken castle, a captive queen in dire need of being released, a dread knight whose very name terrorizes foes, and underling foot-soldiers deemed “pons” -- who yet harbor a latent strength of their own. And rippling through the saga, like a whispery breeze, is the mysterious Cryptic Sense – possessed by those destined to become druids. A blend of ancient beliefs like animism and the early science of alchemy – and draped in the Native American spiritualism of Manitou. – the Cryptic Sense of this tale explores the tight bond between druids & nature.
