Wednesday August 1, 2018 could have proven to be a landmark day in the gun debate. That’s when people were supposed to be able to start legally downloading blueprints for 3D-printable guns. The implications of this could be historic. Do-it-yourself firearms don’t have serial numbers and are untraceable. Supporters say the ability to build unregulated and untraceable guns makes it much harder, if not impossible, for governments to ban them. Others fear the technology will make it easier for terrorists and people who can’t pass background checks to get guns. A Federal Judge blocked the release of the plans on the internet, but this issue is far from resolved. Stay tuned for further developments.
Kateri’s Treasure is the latest book in the Matt O’Malley Mystery series. This time, Matt comes up against a disgraced and ruthless former MI-5 agent determined to locate a treasure trove of blood diamonds that were meant to be payment to a drug lord for a shipment of arms to rebels in Africa. Matt and his friends are sucked into a whirlwind of deception, murder and kidnappings soon after he discovers a dead body on a sunken bateau in beautiful Lake George. Integral to the story is the simple faith a young man has in the Adirondack’s own, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the Lily of the Mohawks, and the legends that surround her. The plot takes many unexpected twists and turns but becomes very personal as Matt seeks to unravel the mystery in order to save one of his friends who has been taken hostage. It all comes to an amazing conclusion in the waters of Shelving Rock Falls in a life or death struggle.
Kateri’s Treasure will be available in bookstores throughout the northeast and as a e-Book on Kindle and Nook. It also may be ordered directly from the author who will be happy to autograph it for you through this website.

Desperate Days, is the second thrilling “Matt O’Malley” mystery novel by Thomas Kane set in the beautiful Adirondack State Park. The tranquility of the park stands in stark contrast to the evil acts that are occurring there in this action packed, tightly paced thriller.
Matt has returned to upstate New York from his home in Florida only to learn that Erin, the beautiful young daughter of his friend Carol has disappeared. Carol has gone to the police who believe that she is overreacting and with no evidence of foul play they refuse to look for Erin. In desperation, Carol turns to Matt O’Malley, who has problems of his own. Almost since he arrived back in the Adirondacks, the Men of Islam have been seeking their revenge on him.
When Matt O’Malley starts asking questions concerning the missing Erin’s whereabouts he runs into the ominously menacing Sergei Popov who drives Matt to commit acts that just days before he would not have believe himself capable of, as he uncovers an unspeakably horrifying crime playing out in one of the remote Adirondack Great Camps.
Matt’s quest to save Erin leads him on a frantic four day chase throughout the Adirondacks, all the while dodging terrorist assassins who are trying their best to kill him. As Desperate Days races to an explosive and suspenseful conclusion, Matt must test the limits of his own mental and physical endurance as well as the strength of some of his closest friendships as he will do whatever he has to do to save Erin from a ghastly fate.
