Lelei Lelei Jnr (aka Machete) and Neil Turnbull (aka The Ghost) came from very different backgrounds but when they eventually found each other they became the 2nd five/centre combination that ruled world rugby. On the pitch they were an unorthodox and mostly unstoppable team. On their day, when they were on the same wavelength, they were world beaters and very possibly the two best All Blacks ever to play in their positions. Then there were the days -- on and off the pitch -- when they were like fire and ice. Theirs was a passionate friendship/kinship/borderline love affair. Sometimes they were of one mind, other times they would do things so stupid it was like they had only one mind between them. Needless to say, trouble had a way of finding them, following them and even moving in to the spare room for a while. Machete and The Ghost is the book that charts the careers of the two greatest All Blacks who never existed. It chronicles their mythical on-field achievements; tells invented stories about the behind-the-scenes goings on of professional rugby; and also makes up their troubles and triumphs off the field, in their tabloid-worthy private lives. This is the book that takes all the tropes you've read in every other rugby biography and twists and turns them for shameless comedic benefit. Machete and The Ghost -- totally made up, but by people who know and love the game of rugby enough to make all the bullshit sound entirely plausible.

Fifty years after humanity desperately sought and found a new home on Jurthaan IV, tension with neighboring planet Palnach necessitates a peace treaty as well as the arranged marriage of Princess Kylee Wen Dao to Palnach’s Prince Maju. Taren Platinum is the best—now banished—guard on Princess Kylee’s security team. He’s also in love with her. After crashing the royal wedding, rescuing the princess, and fleeing Jurthaan IV in a stolen spacecraft, Taren finds himself on the run with Kylee, pursued by soldiers from both Jurthaan IV and Palnach. The lovers crash-land on Cartiss, leaving them stranded on a dying planet with targets on their backs. To escape, Taren must repair the ship with the help of a select few trustworthy citizens from the downtrodden city of Hurren. Without an official governing authority, the local gangsters are running Hurren and refusing to spread the wealth. While Taren’s priority is getting off Cartiss and disappearing somewhere safe, Kylee believes he has what it takes to turn things around in Hurren. Drawing attention to himself is the last thing he wants to do, but his princess is right. If there’s one thing Taren can’t overlook, it’s those who threaten the lives of innocents, even when his own life is on the line.

This book of stories takes us from the most primitive of villages, in the deepest parts of the Colombian Jungles, to Miami, Fl. where battles between good and evil are waged. The Ghost Warrior puts you into the mind of a CIA sniper who is charged with the assassinations of the most evil of the world’s villains. How could this untrusting, trained killer live in a world of death and destruction and still enter into the boundaries of emotion and tenderness, quite comfortably, without renouncing his chosen career? Perhaps some answers are found in his relationship with his adored Angelita. When a person saves you from certain death, does he or she become your Guardian Angel? This is a novel of good versus evil and how one man who never believed he would allow himself to enter into a close personal relationship, did just that. The book contains seven stories which follow a sequence of events. It begins with Raul Lightfoot’s unsuccessful attempt to parachute into a jungle where a vicious drug lord has hidden. He faces a situation of imminent death, which soon becomes a very unexpected rescue by a woman who comes to be regarded by this trained assassin as his very own ‘guardian angel’. The book moves quickly through life and death situations on the battlefields of the jungles to the streets of Miami. This trained killer not only brings violence and death with his presence, but also brings an emotional closeness to a special woman, that only gets stronger as the stories progress. This, coupled with an unexpected sense of humor, makes for fast-paced and action-packed reading.

Luis Urrea confronts head-on the ghosts and contradictions of his being -- his father, a dark and crazy macho Mexicano who Luis admired and dreaded as a young boy; his proud and lonely Anglo mother, so out of place in the heat of Tijuana; and the conflict of cultures and languages in his psyche. Ghost Sickness drives into that confusion with the same kind of intensity that goaded Luis' father when he drove his 1966 Rambler into the Sonoran desert on his fatal journey.
