A billionaire entrepreneur comes to New York City appears just too clean for a lady law enforcement officer. She finds herself falling dangerously close to the most wanted and insidious man against whom she's ever matched wits.


science fact: by 2030, neuro-technician scientists feel we will be able to scan ourselves--our intelligence, personalities, feelings, and memories--into computers. Is cyberspace the beginning of Eternal Life?

One man, out of time, cannot wait.

Book description:
Alexander Volga, a distinguished entrepreneur, veils himslef in respectability, hiding a murky lineage, a uniquely devious and sharp mind, and literally millions of destroyed lives. Believing he onced lived as a deity on ancient Atlantis, he recreates the mythical land in Virtual Reality! Sensing storm clouds of retribution approaching, Alexander prepares for his last, best trick, an audacious attempt to have his mind live "on-line" after body death!
Sultry, no-nonsence law enfocement officer Harriet O'Keefe finds herself dangerously close to falling for Alexander's lure, the most wanted and insidious man against whom she's ever matched wits as she races to topple his empire and ego.
With tensions mountaing from all sides, and uncertain of where loyalty remains, Alexander, for the first time, sets a Machiavellian plan in motion unsure of its evil outcome. But his enemies better check their life-insurance policies, and Harriet O'Keefe, her heart.         
"It was while the sun was eclipsed in Virgo, conjoined with Neptune," the seer continued. "He was delivered . . . no, he was plucked from the womb in the afternoon. It was while Aquarius was rising." She shook her head woefully. "For a long time, I knew this day would come."

Professional Reviews
"The Powder Merchant is Very Good! This imaginative novel about time travel, the Mafia, Greek gods and basketball has one of the most original plot concepts I've seen in years. Suppose people did have previous lives and the gods of Greek mythology were real. David Orange's characters (knowingly or not) are reliving their Olympian roles and relationships in modern times...The writing is fluid, plus there is some wonderful authenticing detail... the plot zips along like a Japanese express train. The ending is satisfying and the creation of Atlantis in cyberspace has to be totally original.
But what about the search for Atlantis (real or imagined)? "The Powder Merchant" reminds us, this is a place both familiar and uplifting in that we are more alive there--much like book readers are drawn to and lose themselves in for awhile. Sometimes even to discover their real nature between its pages." John Lehman

Reader Reviews for "The Powder Merchant"

Reviewed by CHINMOY BOSE 1/1/2008
Congratulation. A marvellous story line.
Reviewed by Ann Marquette 12/30/2007
The synopsis alone makes this a very intriguing read with futuristic mystery, and I suspect a wee bit of romance. I look forward to reading the whole story.
