This ISIS unit is riding pretty high on the hog. They can do about whatever they want. They just had great success raiding the village of el-Bareo, or whatever they called the place. They burned a few buildings as planned, kidnapped, raped and tortured a half dozen young women before killing them and even better, kidnapped the three Christians that been giving them aid of some kind. They had left their tortured bodies and heads on stakes outside the village. They had sent pictures to El Jazeera and their other media outlet so the world would know of their recent success and what a tough formidable outfit they were.
They had not yet heard of Sergeant Thomas Perkins, currently enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. Even if they had, what could one little American soldier do that would affect a crack ISIS unit of 130 men all with the latest arms and equipment. Even better, they had ammo running out their ears.

Welcome to Summersville is a humorous, satirical novel.

is broke. Though Sal lacks restaurant experience, Pearl persuades him and his
family to run her luncheonette at her Catskill bungalow colony, claiming they’ll
The soda counter and vital kitchen equipment is old and unworkable, he
soon discovers. There’s no air conditioning or acoustical ceiling tiles to absorb
the deafening noise. Playing pinball, campers push, fight and shout. They curse
when they tilt the machine or when balls land in traps and they try to rewire
the machines to get free games. Sal’s wife touches a girl while leading her out
for screaming hysterically at a misbehaving ball, and her father threatens to sue.
Lounging, teens are reluctant to remove their feet from tables containing salt
and sugar they pile and squirt with ketchup. Two male dogs knock over chairs
while tearing after a female poodle in heat. Waiting on line for their orders, parents
push one another, demand better service, and curse the family for running out
Girls scream when the campers flap a dead snake on the counter. So do their
moms playing mahjong outside after receiving the same gift. A bully ties up the
D’ Angelos’ youngest son inside a dilapidated bungalow.
Before Sal leaves, Pearl falsely accuses him of taking home most of his stock
instead of leaving it for her. Consequently, she persuades Bernie, renter of the
machines, to give her Sal’s share after adjusting them to provide extra free games.
More curious about the obvious record take than angry, exhausted, Sal drives
home instead of calling the police.$2.99–$22.89 Select options
Rolled, silver white hair created a halo about the woman’s head. The lamplight cast oblique shadows on her delicate, high cheekbones. Above the cheekbones, her eyes were ice blue and steady, belying the eighty years of this statuesque woman. Her demeanor exhibited and commanded an aura of aristocracy. Kathleen’s throat tightened and felt dry. She trembled slightly as she spoke. She was a reasonably intelligent, thirty-eight-year-old woman quite capable of comprehending all that had been depicted and yet, the shocking concept of the old woman’s claim was loathsome and incredulous. Acceptance of such cruel allegations against her grandmother, whom she so admired, was totally denied. In this emotionally charged family saga, Kathleen is shocked to learn of her grandmother’s wicked past from her Great Aunt Rose. As if the shocking revelations aren’t hard enough for Kathleen to deal with, she is forced to make a decision that will determine the course of her future.
