Overview

“Being in the wrong place at just the right time is my specialty.”
Meet Jade Snow, kick-ass international journalist, turned stay-at-home mom (Stepford USA), turned spy extraordinaire (Gold Train). Set in Iraq, this prequel novelette is her experience before the start of the Accidental Spy Series.

Young, witty and beautiful international journalist, Jade Snow, travels to Iraq to shoot a documentary about the Iraqi insurgency. In Baghdad she, as usual, finds herself in the wrong place at just the right time. After witnessing a dramatic suicide bombing, and as two unlikely letters from the opposite sides of the conflict drop in her lap, Jade must trace the shocking connection between the suicide bomber, a young Iraqi girl and American sergeant killed in the attack.

The Butterfly Effect with an unexpected twist, this short, but full of action and drama read explores how interconnected we really are in this world.

A short, but riveting and educational read for readers 14+, incorporating psychology, world events, adventure, karma, and even some humor! Do you want to learn the truth about the Iraqi war? As one reviewer put it: ”This story will rock your world.” Bill Tillman

Meet the Author

Born in Russia, Lada Ray always wanted to write cool stories, which she'd been imagining in her head ever since she can remember. Instead, she listened to her well-meaning parents and started her life in a more traditional way (for her, that is). She is a linguist, internationally certified feng shui master practitioner, world traveler, financial consultant, nature lover, spirituality & metaphysics researcher, and writer. Lada imagines her stories in bustling New York City and the serene Catskill Mountains, New York, where she lives with her family and gorgeous calico cat.

    Reap what YOU SOW!

    Very nice story of karma, and how our lives are much more interconnected than we really realize. One's actions have very real consequences in this world whether we may be consciously aware of it or not. So the lesson is to realize the future of humanity depends on our willingness to put aside our differences and unite... or else suffer the horrors of war. Excellent storytelling and character development. Short novella, hoping this author follows up with the next adventure because it's a really great series about justice and hope.

    I don't quite know what to make of this book, and I mean that in the best sense. It captures my attention and I will re-read it soon.

    Good short story

    This book is misleading. The Green Desert is actually only a 26- page short story. It is well-written, but the rest of the book is full of prequels for other stories which you would have to buy to finish...disappointing.
