SHOCKING! INTRIGUE!

LIE MERCHANTS is an electrifying action-thriller set in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. After reading LIE MERCHANTS, you will never look at the world the same way again. LIE MERCHANTS will turbo-charge your e-reading experience, compelling you to turn the pages as fast as you can to the surprise ending that guaranteed you will NOT guess! It's not just a great book, it is a warning!

In LIE MERCHANTS, real estate executive Tom Worth is shoved off his executive perch and thrust into a fringe world of extremists, finding himself at the epicenter of a plot to strike America's heartland. Only Tom, FBI agent Susan Black and the Centennial State Volunteers stand against America's enemies, both foreign and domestic.

The LIE MERCHANTS storyline takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride from Castle Pines, to Colorado Springs, Denver, Taos, Afghanistan, Dubai, Washington DC, Mazatlan and Zurich.

BE PREPARED, this book grabs you from the first chapter and then never lets you go, confronting the reader with controversy from the start. If you can handle the action, you WILL be entertained.

Editorial Reviews

M Harms
As I was reading this novel, it struck me just how much the storyline was true, could be true or was becoming true!! I was intrigued by the spiritual aspects that detailed the differing theologies of Islam and thought that the author explained it well. I was taken by surprise with the sudden turns in plots and the surprising details of the interconnected stories. There were a couple of times I did have to exclaim "WHAT?" out loud with those twists!! Love being that engaged in a story!
Robert Louis
Lie Merchants is a real thriller, a page turner that holds your attention to the very end. It is suspenseful and close to the reality of what is happening with jihadism and the Mexican drug cartels.

The author develops his characters very well: FBI agents, a brilliant and disciplined drug cartel chief, a mysterious undercover FBI agent, a jihadist sheik, a Sufi disciple, two Afghani brothers, the Taliban -- all coming together in an unexpected and dramatic finale!

Excellent. Could be happening now.
KPCM (Unknown)
Lie Merchants is a fun but thought-provoking read with a timely subject manner and well developed characters. It's especially a fun read for anyone who loves action/adventure books and is familiar with the Denver area, where much of the book's action takes place. But watch out, if you read this book you'll start to see its characters all around you...

    Highly recommended. Jihadists, Mexican drug cartel, Sufi master. Great!

    Lie Merchants. They Are Here.

    Lie Merchants is a real thriller, a page turner that holds your attention to the very end. It is suspenseful and close to the reality of what is happening with jihadism and the Mexican drug cartels. Also, there is an analysis of how the jihadists in the USA obtained funds through using mortgage fund. (The author must have had some inside information about this. )
    I live in central Arizona and am informed as to the seriousness of what is happening on the Mexican border and how this war with the Mexican drug cartels is affecting Arizona.
    The author makes no exaggerations. As someone who works in Indian Country it is appalling how the drug cartels are corrupting the Native American youth. The Tohono O'Odham tribe is located on the Mexican border. The drug cartels pay Native teenagers $500 for helping smuggle a person across the border, and $1,000 for carrying drugs across the border. This is unpublished information as far as I know.
    I know a mutual friend of the author's who delivered pizza to an apartment in Phoenix and recognized the recipient as one of the jihadists involved in the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Jihadists in this cell were taking flying lessons in Arizona.
    They are here!
    As someone who has worked with Muslim coworkers whom I regard highly, I am glad that the author is balanced in the presentation of the Islamic elements in the book. He shows the gross distortions of the jihadists compared to the goodwill and spiritual achievements of the Sufi movement.
    He is sensitive to the beauty and wisdom in the Islamic tradition and subtly includes elements of spiritual experience that are the highest common denominators in all the major world religions. Most really good stories are about the conflict between good and evil, and this is one of them.
    The author develops his characters very well: FBI agents, a brilliant and disciplined drug cartel chief, a mysterious undercover FBI agent, a jihadist sheik, a Sufi disciple, two Afghani brothers, the Taliban -- all coming together in an unexpected and dramatic finale that gives your gut a great feeling of satisfaction. In the book's end, there is a document written by a high school student in Denver that exalts the heart of true American patriotism. This document actually was written by a real American teenager in Denver. Your heart will be uplifted by it, and it will give you hope in the goodness that is in the core of America.
    This is the first novel by James, and I definitely want to read more books by this brand new author.
    Very good book for book club discussions for those who like suspense mystery thrillers seasoned with spirituality.

    Gets your attention with the first chapter. It gets a little detailed at times but still a good story. It is very timely - would make a great movie.
