Synopsis

From the age of seven, China indoctrinated Li Yong to serve the State. Education finally complete, his singular honor is to lead China’s cyber-invasion of the United States’ transportation infrastructure. As airliners fall from the sky, Li Yong realizes his moral dilemma: the hacks he designed will soon make him the worst mass murderer in world history.

Helen Schilling and husband, former FBI agent Jackson, are no strangers to global terrorism. Together they must stop this new enemy. But who is the real adversary here? As in Hunt For Red October, Li Yong desperately searches for a way to prevent these seemingly unstoppable disasters. Helen and Jack offer him a most unconventional solution as the launch clock winds down.

From Chris Malburg, author of God’s Banker, comes the Enforcement Division Series’ next riveting installment--Man of Honor.


Teaser: Exclusive Excerpt

     The airliner rolled past the short approach taxiway. The radio crackled with unintelligible static and broken words. The DC-10’s landing lights merely bounced off the thick fog. The pilot pointed the jet’s nose down range.
     The copilot rubbed his slick palms on his pants. This cannot be happening. The captain is ignoring me. Air Traffic Control isn’t responding. For all we know there’s a flock of seagulls ready to fly right into the engines.
      “That static must have been the tower giving us clearance,” the pilot said. He waited another ten seconds. “Screw it. We’re going.” He pushed the throttles forward and the DC-10 began its takeoff roll. The jumbo jet rapidly accelerated. Thick fog swallowed it in seconds.
      “Speed 125, V-1,” the nervous copilot called as the DC-10 hurtled over Lanai’s short runway. The jet was now committed to its takeoff roll. He peered into the foggy gloom. “Pull up. Pull up!”
      “Goddammit, goddammit,” the pilot shouted as he desperately yanked back on the control column and slammed the throttles forward. The DC-10 rotated, its nose coming up off the runway. But it didn’t yet have enough speed to get the lift needed to climb over the 747 crossing the runway. The plane’s empennage scraped over the concrete, leaving a massive trail of sparks in its wake. “Fly, baby, fly,” the pilot pleaded.

Deadly Acceleration [1]


Kaito Automotive’s sudden acceleration car crashes are no accident SEC enforcement examiner and retired Navy SEAL, Jackson Schilling, unearths what at first seems merely a manufacturing defect at the world’s largest car manufacturer. Schilling just fell down the rabbit hole of deception. The lives of thousands of unsuspecting motorists worldwide suddenly hang in the balance. They are collateral damage to an even more sinister plot. Schilling works exhaustively to expose a conspiracy employing weaponized mass financial destruction on a global scale. He is up against a brutally sophisticated gang whose resources rise to the highest levels of the Chinese and American governments. Shilling’s struggle and epiphany along with that of his billionaire father and Helen Kaito, daughter of Kaito Automotive’s chairman, resonate with current headlines and real world occurrences.

The book’s electrifying combat sequences, plausible use of financial discovery as a weapon and the featured locations--Elkhart, Beijing, Shanghai and Washington DC--all accelerate the plot’s movement. Deadly Acceleration maintains its suspense to the end as Schilling and his out-gunned group reveals the true purpose of this act of global industrial terrorism. They fight to disarm a truly unique weapon and then give the perpetrators a taste of justice, American-style. Deadly Acceleration is an 83,000-word action-adventure novel written for leisure readers, travelers and vacationers in search of pure entertainment. The book targets young professionals, 18-35. Deadly Acceleration draws on Chris Malburg’s lifetime career in corporate finance. After 12 successful business books, Chris now turns this experience and meticulous research to a different purpose--global domination perpetrated by one country over another. All without firing a shot. Readers know Chris Malburg for his technical accuracy and crisp writing style. Both are present in Deadly Acceleration, the first Jackson Schilling novel.

God'$ Banker [2]


Cardinal David Caneman took just three years to engineer his ascension into the CEO’s office of Vatican Bancorp. His cabal of fundamentalist zealots now quickly moves to seize the world’s largest institution. First by publicly assassinating the Pope. Next by replacing him with Caneman. Finally by giving the masses a common, everyday object—unquestionably used by their savior—to rally behind. For centuries, folklore has claimed the sacred item laid in wait sealed within the Church’s lost treasury vault. Caneman races to unearth the vault—if it exists. He has bet everything that he can find the blessed object, surely buried within. He intends using it to sweep the faithful from their ungodly ways and into his personal standards of piety. The Taliban took just two years to overthrow Kabul.

Armed with over a billion faithful worldwide and a $200 billion war chest—and the sacred Broom Of Formia—Cardinal David Caneman figures it will take him just half that time to conscript the hearts and minds first of Europe, then… Jackson Schilling enjoys his happy, early retirement. He attends minor league ball games near his home in Elkhart, Indiana. He’s an amateur chef. And Jackson Schilling is a hunter. Then the SEC drafts him. Come on, Jack. One last audit. It’s mandatory after an attempt on the Vatican Bank Chairman’s life. But Jackson Schilling is no ordinary auditor. And it was his Commander in Chief who personally ordered him drafted. Schilling exhaustively uncovers Caneman’s deadly purpose. First he must stop a professional assassin from completing his mission against the Pope. Now the hard part—derail a fundamentalist faction led by a brilliant, ruthless [and some would say] saint to over a billion faithful. Jackson Schilling battles a force growing faster and more deadly than the Crusades, the Inquisition or the Taliban ever were. Legitimate governments will surely topple, becoming answerable to one man and his band of strict fundamentalists if Schilling fails.

A Pirate's Time Served [3]


The ghost of pirate Black Bart joins forces with two over-privileged teens and their relatives on St. Croix in a modern-day quest to discover priceless buried treasure and along the way, their life’s mission under the most unlikely and dangerous circumstances. Careful what you wish for...

Sarah Schilling’s twelve year-old brother is wicked smart. But this? Pure genius. Brian snagged an invitation to spend the summer with their favorite aunt and uncle on St. Croix. Uncle Jack tells them, “There will probably be some swimming, some diving. We like to run. There’s a range, so maybe you’ll learn to shoot. Cooking. Your Aunt Helen is a classically trained chef. You knew that, right? There’s the Mallard seaplane, so maybe you’ll learn something about flying. That sort of thing.” That sort of thing sounds like too much work for Sarah Schilling’s summer on the beach. Until Brian’s scuba regulator mysteriously fails sixty feet underwater. Her training snaps into laser focus.

During Brian’s rescue they unearth the 250 year-old secret of Black Bart—the pirate and his ghost. The discovery launches them into a hurricane of peril at the hands of modern-day pirates. The Schilling family will not survive unless Brian and Sarah discover the most powerful weapon that is within themselves. A Pirate’s Time Served is a Young Adult / Middle Grade thriller of a ghost story. It shows how two teens can dig deeper than they thought possible, discovering what it means to lead, to follow, and to never ever give up—especially on family.
