O'Neil De Noux had this to say about Roger's "El Rey del Tiempo: It's Not What You Think"

"Non-stop action. Unlikely characters meld into a team in this complex drama with a twisting plot. Bull is no bull when it comes to this cool, hot book." -- O'Neil De Noux, multiple award winning writer.

Legalized Crime
by
Roger C. Bull
In dire times, desperate actions tend to overrule the sanity of a society. When bad is good, and proper is shameful, laws change to fit the mores of the times. Drastic actions become commonly accepted to return sanity to a populace gone wild.

Presidential candidate, Martin Talbot, proposed one solution to stabilize the nation's depressed economy and, at the same time, to reduce the violent crime rate. The answer: the Economic Recovery and Crime Reduction Act. The news media dubbed it the Legalized Crime bill. Included in the act is a new process for executing criminals with a history of violent crimes: nexecution. Antagonists call it legalized murder.

El Rey del Tiempo: It's Not What You Think
by
Roger C. Bull
Death approaches quickly. Falling at 120 m.p.h. from an altitude of five miles high, the Special Forces Major signals to his troops to “stay tight.”

He receives thumbs-up signs from each member.

After this H.A.L.O. (high altitude - low opening) jump, they reach their designated altitude and deploy their chutes.

They land in a discrete area about one half mile from the target-area, as planned.

Once on the ground, as they remove their jump gear, including oxygen masks and mini-tanks, they converse to relieve the stress, yet they remain focused on the goal of the mission.

Major, “There’s nothing like dropping in unexpectedly for dinner! Is there, ladies?”

“You ought to know, Major. Was that Billy Bob who came home too soon to find his wife and you after that last mission?”

“Now, don’t be gettin’ insubordinate with me. I can rattle off 100 stories for every one of you girlie-boys,” the Major protests with a smile.

Just another assignment earmarked by the Commander-In-Chief, they carry out their missions, no matter the task. “What’s a guy or a gal got to do for lunch money these days?”

“We don’t get paid nothing, Major. But, look at all the fun we have!”

“Who we gonna kill this time, Major?” asks one of the soldiers.

“Depends on what they do, Sergeant. Might have to kill ours and theirs,” the Major replies, frankly.

The Thin Line of Good and Evil
by
Roger C. Bull
Detective Dante Nuzzollilo asks his senior partner, Detective Sergeant August De Noux, "Why do people do what they do? How can people be so warm, generous, considerate one moment then be so deceitful, thieving or murderous the next?"

"Gus," De Noux explains to his rookie partner, "God gave mankind the freedom of choice, free will, to do good or evil. Mankind has chosen to relentlessly exercise both choices."



A professional assassin stalks the Sixth District of New Orleans, known as the original Fort Apache, also as the Animal Kingdom. This area encompasses the Irish Channel of New Orleans. It has the highest crime rate in the city.

The news media, city hall and police supervisors want this hit man captured or killed. The citizens want him to finish his work. Why?

Within the Heart and Soul  Within the Heart and Soul
by
Roger C. Bull
Life offers events, occurrences that exude expressions that motivate some to act, to communicate or to write about them. This is a collection of poems promoted by those motivators. It is a chronological evolution of Roger Bull's work from 1957 to mid-November 2011.

Here's hoping that they convey the essence of his reaction to those muses.

Enjoy!
