Explosives expert Dorn Wheeler’s security assignment to Amman, Jordan wasn’t expected to be anything beyond routine. That is until Haneen, a temptress who seems to think defying death is the ultimate aphrodisiac, enters his life. Dorn is soon entranced by the woman’s mystery and seductive spirit, and his thoughts fill with the fantasy of her body melding with his in the desert moonlight. What he doesn’t know is that the exotic eyes he wants to swim in may well be the planned death of him. Or that the one thing he can’t walk away from, a bomb like no one has seen before, hasn’t just been built, but is waiting for him…and ticking.
KevaD is David “DA” Kentner, prize-winning author and writer of the nationally syndicated column “The Readers’ Writers.” This husband, father, and grandfather is a retired police chief and army veteran. His short story “The Caretaker” won first place in Calliope magazine’s 18th annual fiction contest. David currently has eleven published books and resides on five acres outside of Freeport, IL. When not writing, mowing the lawn, or shoveling snow, he’s trying to convince his wife the TV has more than soap opera and game channels, and that pizza really is a required food group.
Kentner served with the U.S. Army’s 3rd Ordnance Detachment (EOD), an army bomb disposal squad, from 1975 to 1978. His duties included assisting the Secret Service and State Department in the personal protection of the president, vice president, and secretary of state while on foreign soil. “Eyes to Die For” is loosely based on one such mission Kentner participated in.
