New Fiction Release by Avery Mann Action-Packed Thriller of Witches and Unlikely Terrorists Set in a Coastal Village of Marin County and Salzburg, Austria
This new novel published by Dog Ear Publishing is the story of Angel Landing, a composite Marin coastal community whose newest resident is a retired government agent, Mark Jamison. Seeking respite from his health and marital problems, Mark quickly finds himself embroiled in adventures that threaten everything he has come to accept in his life and career.
MILL VALLEY, Calif. -- Mark Jamison is a former government agent and think tank director, seeking a change in climate to deal with his breathing issues. Angel Landing, a beautiful coastal community in California, seems to be the ideal location for his health and relaxation, and it provides the distance he needs to reassess his longtime marriage to his wife, Sarah. As this new novel reveals, however, this cozy town is anything but restful, and Mark is quickly pulled back into intrigue.
Mark’s neighbors are, to say the least, unusual, and his natural curiosity overcomes his need for relaxation; soon, Mark is targeted by a sect of Wiccans seeking a method of reproduction that does not require the use of males. In the middle of this adventure, the government reenlists its old agent to investigate nuclear devices that they fear might have passed through the Golden Gate. Mark’s nose for trouble lands himself and Sarah into life-threatening danger, and Mark fears this might be his last exploit after all. Will Mark be able to reach his contact to inform her of the potential nuclear crisis? Will it be the final end of male dominance or mutually assured destruction of all? Can Mark and Sarah escape to save themselves and the planet?
“Angel Landing” is a riveting yarn filled with adventure, intrigue, and romance, and a lot of original thinking about some the biggest issues facing the world. Mark Jamison is a man whose inquisitive nature lands him into trouble, and Mark’s propensity for trouble will keep readers wanting more.
Author Avery Mann’s lifelong experience as a think tank director, diplomat and advisor to the government provides him with ample fodder for his fiction work, part of his new series of Mark Jamison adventures.

Dog Ear Publishing – self publishing that actually makes sense!
Former government agent and think-tank director Mark Jamison needs a quiet coastal refuge for his breathing problems, and maybe some space to sort out his life and what remains of his marriage. What he finds in the mysterious little village of Angel Landing quickly escalates into a series of adventures to save the planet, or at least its male inhabitants, and soon forces him to confront his past and the assumptions that brought him here.
The composite Marin community of Angel Landing is brimming with secrets that an aging investigator can’t ignore, especially when the old house he rents puts him smack in the middle of Wiccans chasing the secret of human reproduction without the untidiness of needing men in the effort. The intrigue compounds when the government enlists his help to locate nuclear devices which have entered the Golden Gate, but vanished without a trace. Through a bizarre series of twists, all connect up and relate back through the fog of Angel Landing and his own past.
In Angel Landing, witches and Wiccans are not confined to fairy tales, and parthenogenesis and nuclear threats are not pipe dreams.
Angel Landing is intended as the first of a series of adventures of Mark Jamison, based on the author’s own breadth of experiences around the world.
