Greek Ghost Excerpt
Paul grabbed Admetus around his head and jerked it. He heard a cracking sound. Undoing his harness, he managed to squeeze his 6' 5", 200-pound frame between the seats and get into the back row. It took all his effort to undo the one around Admetus, pull the plump man out of the pilot’s seat, and dump him onto the other one. As he did, Paul felt the copter losing altitude and turning in circles. Paul hurriedly slipped into the pilot’s seat and put his feet into the rudder pedals. He reached for the collective pitch lever and the control column, knowing he had to correct the torque to stop the spinning. Before he could regain control, the helicopter hit the side of the mountain. Paul cried out, "Jennifer, I love you."
Jennifer Haslett Vandergriff's husband Paul dies under suspicious circumstances in a helicopter crash after five wonderful years of marriage. Afterward she inherits Global International Travel, and discovers that she is extremely wealthy. Expecting, Jennifer silently deals with fears the child will be born with a mental illness because her mother suffered with it from the time she was born. Also tormented by severe Porstparnum Depression, her doctor suggests that she return to Greece where she met Paul.
Everett's grandparents agree to care for him in Wendelstein Germany while she travels to Leros in search of peace. En route Jennifer encounters an organization of international terrorists dominated by fanatically religious people and criminals seeking large profits, and learns about her husband's secret life. She meets two men - one she believes works for Interpol; the other one, an evil man that she suspects has the answers she seeks. Frightened by what she has stumbled into, and fearful for her life, she calls on her friend Lady Sarah Clarke to assist her in restoring Paul's good name.
