Discovery is Book One in the Ship Series

Jake McDonald’s life has hit rock bottom. He’s lost his job, and his wife and two children have lost their faith in him. It seems that everything that could go wrong has happened, and he now has nowhere to turn. In a final effort to salvage his financial problems, Jake turned from banking to lobster fishing off Santa Barbara Island. While scuba diving, he discovers an underwater cave that extends deep beneath the island’s shoreline. As he swims into the cave looking for fish and lobster, he finds an alien artifact. This discovery drastically transforms his life and changes the history of planet Earth in a way no one could have ever imagined.

Discovery is the first book in the Ship series that draws
suppositions from the future science of NASA, and asks the question “Are we really alone?” Jake McDonald uses the
discovered artifact to help answer that question, while attempting to unify and protect his family. His ability to think outside the box enables him to explore the worlds beyond the bounds of Earth’s atmosphere.

Here are some initial reviews:

Ship is a view from inner space to outer space on a journey of Discovery. It’s about a new adventure...about those who choose to go, and those who ultimately give life a new meaning. Jack and Sue Drafahl have created a view that few have ever imagined - a moment in time beyond our view…tomorrow.

S.O.S. is what my father would have called – a “humdinger of a page turner,” and I agree.  There are abundant cliffhangers, and heartwarming love interludes as the good couple find one another.  The action is fast, and I stayed up later than I usually do in the evening fascinated with what was coming next.  S.O.S. is a “good read,” my favorite tip-of-the-hat for a book that thoroughly entertained me.     Stan Waterman

S.O.S. is a Simply Outstanding Story that ignited my imagination.  An explosive plot about a couple’s truly remarkable journey and the dangers they faced when the earth erupted as it did in the year 1700.  Enjoy the marvels of Mary Island and the grandeur of the Solomon Islands.     Ernie Brooks

S.O.S. is a hard to put down, enjoyable thriller set in the stunning location of the Solomon Islands.  It has something for everyone with interesting characters, fast-paced action, good guys, bad guys, natural disasters, romance, humor, and scuba diving!  S.O.S. will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next.     Kellie Oldfield

Suspense, murder, and intrigue intertwined with re-discovered love make this a captivating story.  Reappearance of some characters from D.N.A. and C.A.T. keep the interesting series connected.  Can’t wait for the next book. S. Beckman

Here are some initial reviews:

My daughter and I are avid Kindle readers. We share discovery of new writers when either of us by chance come across a really superior page-turner, "who dunit" detective story. I just finished D.N.A., by Jack and Sue Drafahl. It kep me glued to my reading chair by the fire past midnight many nights. D.N.A. has all the varied elements that make a mystery novel compluslive reading. The authors' knowledge of police procedure, forensic technology and crimial law bears total credibiliity and never becomes tedious. Corruption, with billions of dollars at stake, at the level of the U.S. Senate and Military, touches depressingly on today's daily news. The murders - and there are many - follow a logical pattern and are artfully introduced without pathological, gory details that make the reader's stomach turn. The subplot, a warm and poignant love affair and warm family loyalty, provides relief from the malignant forces at work and is never tedious or graphically prurient. The daily advance in computer technology make the complex plot for the story excitingly believable. I found D.N.A. a fine read, wonderfully entertaining and a new star in the art of writing mystery novels. Let's have more, Jack and Sue Drafahl. - Stan Waterman

Outrageously entrenched with nano-tech details to outwit the crimials and death. D.N.A. is a fast reading story written as a screenplay with strong, fascinating characters. - Zale Parry

Readers of the Acroname series by Jack and Sue Drafahl, will be pleased to see the release of D.N.A. It is filled with plot twists, romance, multiple story lines artfully woven together, and creative, high-tech tools to please even the most discerning critic. You won’t be disappointed! - Dianne Morris

What an intriguing plot with an intertwining composite of subplots! Sure to grab and hold your attention as the pages fly. It all ties together with unexpected twists and revelations. A delight to read. - Lorna VanderZanden

Edge of your seat excitement, hi-tech espionage, with richly-grizzled Detective Frank Ridge square in the middle of the mayhem. Nano technology meets good old-fashioned detective work in this action-packed thriller. Look out, Dean Koontz, the Drafahl’s have arrived! - Nancy McGee

You’ll be taken on a journey of suspense, romance, dirty politics, murder, and deceit as the good guys discover new ways to fight violent crime and put an end to corruption. Lots of action and intrigue, along with interesting characters, will keep you involved in the book from start to finish – you won’t want to put it down. We’re anxiously awaiting the next book in the Acroname Series! Well done … we want more! - Marsha & Paul Stamatakis
