THE GINA MAZZIO, RN, MEDICAL THRILLER SERIES
You have cancer.
You’ve been blasted and wasted with chemotherapy, along with every other poison the doctors could find to kill malignant cells.
Most days you’re more dead than alive. There is one last chance for survival.
Tomorrow you will be infused with your own, treated bone marrow—frozen, stored, and safe in one of California’s most prestigious hospitals.
Then comes an anonymous note:
We have your marrow…pay or die.
RN Gina Mazzio is not about to let her patients become victims of a vicious scheme.
It’s RN Gina Mazzio’s wedding eve. But when Gina takes the week’s final Ob/Gyn telephone advice call, a deadly serious male voice says, “She’s all cut up.”
The police, the hospital administrator, and even her fiancée insist it was only a crank call, some sicko.
Gina doesn’t buy it. She gets a second call, at home, and starts to link the calls and caller to a series of nurse disappearances.
Instead of marriage and as honeymoon, Gina is drawn into the dangerous illicit trade in human body parts.
RN Gina Mazzio is not a wimp, but after nearly being murdered twice, she needs a time out, needs to get away from San Francisco and Ridgewood Hospital.
She and her fiancé sign up for a travel assignment at a small Nevada facility in the middle of nowhere.
On their first day, driving down a long, creepy private road, ominous sentry-like boulders block out the sun. When they finally arrive at the facility, Gina’s eye starts to twitch a warning when she sees heavy iron bars on the second floor windows.
What kind of place was this? What were they getting into?

For ten long years she has slaved to help make one man a star specialist in the highly competitive field of infertility treatment.

Investigative journalists Paige and Max Alper drop everything, leave their jobs behind, and hopscotch from San Francisco to San Diego to New York to Hong Kong to take up the paper chase.
It all starts when Paige rejects an heir-tracer’s proposal to split fifty-fifty the inheritance from her adventurous and mysterious sea captain uncle.
While her twin sister insists they accept the heir-tracer’s offer without question, the Alper’s launch their own trace, unaware that Uncle Jock Boylan was murdered—not for his money, but because he had collected evidence that would expose a conspiracy of Chinese government officials and a Hong Kong-based triad of pirates and white slavers.
The result: A simple treasure hunt turns into an international adventure of intrigue, courage, death, and revenge.
“…One might ask if near death is worth any amount of money. The book is a great read and hard to put down. The writers keep the action moving and intersperse it with entries from Uncle Jock’s journals. We get an insight as to what drives a man to seek revenge against those who have wronged him.”
