According to the book description of The Pursuer, "Michael Kintner is on the run. As the sole survivor of the bombing of the Sistine Chapel where the pope and hundreds of others were killed during a disastrous war between Islam and Christianity, Kintner is already plagued with radiation sickness. Now he is being sought for the destruction of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and the murder of tens of thousands of civilians. While Kintner stealthily moves across the desert, he knows that if he does not continue to outsmart his enemies, he will surely die. The intelligence organizations of France and the United States, along with the conservative Muslim group, the Wahabi, all want, for their own reasons, to apprehend and execute Kintner. But he is not the archetypical war criminal-Kintner is a Jesuit priest and the head of a new Catholic military order. As he desperately attempts to start a new life with the help of his new friend, eighteen-year-old Maggie Morales, Kintner is not afraid of being caught by his pursuers-but instead by something else more terrible by far. In this political thriller, a heroic priest must fight for his beliefs-and his life-amid the aftermath of a bloody struggle between a newly-formed Catholic order and the terrorists of the world."


According to the book description of The Wayfarer, it "is the suspenseful, sometimes violent story of a woman named Madhva who escapes the brutality and poverty of her environment and finds her way to the Orient. There, she discovers and studies an ancient philosophy known as the Tao, or the Way. Over years of study, her Tibetan master helps her to develop her spiritual power, ready to become a Wayfarer. These people, in the mystical tradition, have devoted themselves for centuries to liberating the poor and oppressed from slavery of every type. Madhva is opposed by the remnants of an ancient and vicious race, the Shivaki, from whom the peaceful Tibetans descended, and who now are spread across the whole earth. The Shivaki are protected by powerful politicians and governments and are determined to take over the drug operations in every country."
