Mongoose Moon is a novel of Speculative Fiction that is suitable for readers 13 and up. Contains harsh language. Follow the thrilling adventures of Phineas 'Phrogg' Bervirt and his wild and out-of-control ex-wife Jade Shank, in this rollicking sci-fi tale of international intrigue and espionage. When twenty year-old high-tech heiress and 'performance artist' Jade Shank tosses a loaded water balloon at a visiting Prime Minister, she finds herself swept away into a dizzying adventure of intrigue and espionage. After President Dennis Lasher secretly dispatches 'The Black Widow' to rescue Jade and other captive girls from Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Ptard's vacation castle, all Hell breaks loose.
In the meantime, 'Phrogg' unwillingly finds himself in the cross-hairs of the Illuminati when he receives a package containing mysterious gadgets that will supposedly unlock the age-old long-sought secret in achieving applicable nuclear fission. Along with two comely (and lethal) private detectives (Natasha Danko and Susan Fairclo), Phrogg finds himself on the run from ruthless agents of DeathCo, the Russians, crazy Luciferians, the virtual reality 'Mongoose' Cult, the British Royal Family, and nearly everybody else in between.
These two tales (and several others) intertwine and eventually come together at the thrilling climax of Mongoose Moon
Jade Shank's essence soars high above the world where the blue turns to black, and she perceives the great, distant, emptiness of the Void… all light and matter seem to be moving toward it, at an accelerating speed. Despite its name, all is not emptiness in the Void. Expanding leftover materials of creation, devoid of form, dis-corporate into the great black hole, which pulsates with dark energy. Even light itself cannot escape its gravitational pull. Jade girds herself as she drifts faster and closer towards the entrance of the wormhole…
Jade sails right through the vortex, only to find herself back in the space where she started from. Images of familiar things reappear in the darkness… old friends like the sun and the moon and the planets and all of the stars—the living, expanding Milky Way Galaxy. The Universe resembles a teardrop in free fall: Jade's teardrop. Jade's teardrop is all that there is, and the enveloping darkness returns and engulfs her.
“Existence is merely an anomaly, a brief and fleeting interruption from the great unchanging emptiness of eternity,” says a voice in clipped English. “The undeniable truth that everything ends in nothingness is so very painful for most of us to face… the utter horror of it causes so much sadness and despair in our dysfunctional race… it doesn't have to be that way…”
“Who are you?” says Jade to the ethereal voice in the dark.
“I am your dream, your nightmare, your lover, and your truest, best friend. I will truly love you, love you more than any other, if you dare to receive my love. True, unfettered, unlimited love. Naked love… love with no regrets or apologies. Join me, you who sought to do me harm. I forgive you, now that you have shown me your innermost thoughts and fears…so much sorrow, my wild one. You can join with me, and stay, and love…”
