Overview

The Osiris Connection (http://www.theosirisconnection.com) is a thriller based on spectacular real-life events. The novel centers around Mick Kamin, a conflicted individual capable of strong business prowess. As he excels and builds a power base, he struggles to bury a secret past, fighting debilitating anxiety battles that endanger the very self-assurance he must maintain to succeed. An extraordinary love story swirls throughout the plotline, featuring frustrating "hit and miss" encounters of Mick Kamin and Karen Reynolds, two people destined to unite, but cast apart by fate. Their lives collide when Karen becomes involved with the antagonist, Jim Siriso, whose goal becomes to destroy Mick's career while employing graft, theft, smuggling and murder to build an illicit empire. Haunted by the influence of an ancient Egyptian god, Osiris, three people's lives are propelled from the corrupt US/Canada border to the ruthless streets of Caracas, South America where an illicit $325,000,000 fortune stolen from the U.S. and Canadian governments is at stake.

The Osiris Connection is written by Peter Jennings and Steve Douglas. Steve experienced many of the shocking events revealed in the book.

Meet the Author

Peter Jennings is a professional writer with more than 40 years experience. Along with "The Osiris Connection" written with Steve Douglass, Peter has recently completed "The Power of Happiness: How To Get Happy In Unhappy Times" (www.thepowerofhappinessbook.com), "The Shark Assault: A Story of Survival" written with Nicole Moore (www.thesharkassault.com) and "Making It With Marilyn" written with Marilyn Brooks (www.makingitwithmarilyn.com). He is currently working on the first in a series of fiction books featuring Dr. Tasha Harcourt, "A Taste For Death" (www.drtmysteries.com).

Having learned about Steve Douglass's amazing exploits in the gasoline business, Jennings encouraged Douglass to draft his career events into a story hidden behind a veil of semi-fiction (to avoid potential legal challenges - even to stay alive). Using his as a foundation, Jennings then wrote the final manuscript for "The Osiris Connection".

The less public Peter Jennings is found at "Hemlock Hollow", a sprawling lakeside log home he shares with his wife Louise and their faithful rescue dogs Molly and Macy. His pursuits include jazz, singing (see www.pjentertainer.com), golf, spirited conversations with close friends, and gentle lake cruises in the family's 1909 mahogany boat "Ruth".

Steve Douglass was born and educated in Canada. Subsequent to university graduation, he spent the first part of his career in the oil industry, beginning with Exxon, then Royal Dutch Shell, the largest and second largest companies in the business. Many of his roles pivoted around marketing which fuelled his interest in writing.

The second half of his career was devoted to building one of the smallest companies in the industry: his own. Along the way, Douglass experienced incredibly dark escapades after meeting the larcenous character who is re-molded as "Jim Siriso" in "The Osiris Connection".

The Douglass/Jennings friendship has survived their collaboration on "The Osiris Connection" and both authors look forward to a successful publishing event and motion picture adaptation of their work.
