Dale Amidei lives and writes on the wind- and snow-swept Northern Plains of South Dakota. Novels about people and the perspectives that guide their decisions are the result. It features faith-based themes set in the real world, which is occasionally profane or violent. His characters are realistically portrayed as caught between heaven and earth, not always what they should be, nor what they used to be. In this way they are like all of us. As Dale says:
"A novel begins with having something to say. Everything that comes next, developing the characters, the plot, the first draft, the editing, the polishing, all follow this. First have something to say, and then start writing."

What if Black Widow were to join the cast of '24?'
Absinthe and chocolate starts with a shot (of absinthe, that is) and doesn't let up as intrigue leads the characters from Geneva to the Iraq to New York City to Moscow. In addition to the welcome return of familiar characters from 'Jon's Trilogy' and 'Sean's Cycle', Sean Ritter and General McAllen's intelligence apparatus, we meet a new super-duper secret agent, Rebecca Hildebrand Boone, a fiery red-headed secret agent who has the martial arts skills of Black Widow crossed with the suave manner of James Bond. While there are no 'superheroes' here, this book deals with the purely realistic machinations of the global intelligence commuity, this book kept me turning pages and I read it in a single day (warning, don't start this book right before bedtime!!!)
