"Twists and turns abound as Fernandez precisely knits facts with imagination to entertain and to educate in a genuine page-turner too irresistible to put down." Michael DeStefano, Award-Winning Author of The Composer's Legacy


Senator Jeffrey Lance was found dead in the Amazon Rainforest under mysterious circumstances. Years before, holistic doctors throughout the country had also died from shadowy causes. Could they be connected? There was only one answer in the irrepressive mind of Maxine Ford. With the scent of a hound dog, she swings into action as these deaths raise doubts. In hot pursuit, she uncovers some baffling revelations that sends her off to New Mexico to track down a beekeeper. Following a bizarre chain of events, she is thrust into the throes of a far-reaching investigation that looms larger with the introduction of Big PhRMA and the FDA. As it becomes clear that her adversaries are on her trail, you will find Max digging in her stilettos for another nail-biting thriller. 


Could a beekeeper hold the secret to solving the mystery? The risks did not deter Max from plunging ahead in her usual no-holds-barred style to uncover the answer. Neither the President, an international supranational body, nor an assassin at her doorstep, could dissuade her from discovering what was behind the potentially explosive, high-stakes game they were playing.


Novelist Sally Fernandez has seized another controversial subject from which she has confected an exciting fictional plot doused with alluring intrigue, while offering the reader a gripping story of a contemporary subject matter. The facts from her precise research added to the stew only underscores the validity of the narrative. Readers will be engrossed in a page-turning plot that provides a visit behind the scenes of a vital subject of current interest.

About the author

If you relish suspense thrillers with a tinge of conspiracy, you will enjoy Sally Fernandez’ novels. Readers have said she pens riveting plots of intrigue and political awakening, seamlessly blending fact with fiction…or fiction with fact…you be the judge.


As a novelist of provocative political thrillers steeped in facts, she wasn’t always twisting facts with fiction. Heavily endowed with skills acquired in banking, she embarked on her writing career. Fernandez’ focus on computer technology, business consulting, and project management, enhanced by business and technical writing, proved to be a boon. Her books of fiction also reflect the knowledge garnered from her business experiences, while living in New York City, San Francisco, and Hong Kong.


Sally’s foray into writing fiction officially began in 2007 when the presidential election cycle was in full swing. The overwhelming political spin by the media compelled her to question the frightening possibilities the political scene could generate. As a confirmed political junkie, she took to the keyboard armed with unwinding events and discovered a new and exciting career.


The Beekeeper’s Secret, the latest release with multiple five-star reviews, is Sally’s sixth novel and the second in the “Max Ford Thriller” series. It is preceded by the Award-Winning Climatized, soon to be a major motion picture, featuring Maxine Ford as the female protagonist. Her prior series, “The Simon Tetralogy,” is comprised of Brotherhood Beyond the YardNoble’s QuestThe Ultimate Revenge and Redemption. Each book provides an exhilarating platform for the next, with a gripping narrative that challenges the reader to put the book down. Her development of the other characters has created a lasting bond between them and the reader, especially now that Max has taken center stage.


A world traveler, Sally has visited every continent and over fifty countries. Her adventure travels with her husband include a scientific expedition in Antarctica, four African safaris, archaeological digs in Majorca and Peru, along with high-altitude treks in Bhutan, Tibet, and Mongolia. Sally and her husband, also the content editor-in-residence, continue to travel extensively throughout the world.

"In Climatized, Sally Fernandez has made herself a credible expert--presenting a plausible scenario that will descend on the planet soon..." Dennis T. Avery, New York Times Bestselling Co-Author of Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years


After resigning her post at the States Intelligence Agency, Maxine Ford declares her independence as she bursts onto the Washington scene as a private investigator. She displays her usual no-holds-barred style, showing no obeisance to the elite politicians. Right out of the starting gate, she finds herself in the cauldron of mystery, murder, and mayhem. All of her clients are warned to prepare themselves for the truth...at all costs.


In Climatized, Max is hired by the wife of a prominent senator to determine the cause of his untimely death. It leads her to discover that three world-renowned scientists had been killed days before they were scheduled to testify before the late senator's investigative committee. Meanwhile, a fourth scientist has gone missing. Max determined he is the key to unearthing the motives behind the deaths. Following the many twists and turns, Max and her associate, Jackson Monroe uncover a powerful organization responsible for the killings. Cogent evidence is provided to the president, forcing him to make a crucial decision--to cover up a diabolical plot--or bring down a multi-trillion-dollar world-wide economy.


Fernandez' crackerjack international thriller once again expertly weaves fact with fiction. Readers will be beguiled by the artistic marriage of established facts with a storyline that lifts creativity to new heights. A classic blend of character study and well-plotted action sequences keeps the pages turning faster and faster.

"A captivating second addition to the Simon Trilogy. Intense rhythmic development woven brilliantly--at times haunting and foreboding--others a palpable sensation of an unerring power, leaving you to confront your own views of contemporary events. The modern political thriller has a strong advocate in Fernandez." Maestro Debra Cheverino, Internationally Recognized Conductor, Fulbright Scholar, Florence, Italy.

Leading edge technology is used to unravel the labyrinth of connections. The events are not coincidental. The enormous risks facing the USA and the world eventually draw the newly-elected president into the picture.

"A parable for the times in which we live. Fernandez has written a classic fable for our Age of Doubt, just as Kerouac defined the Age of Hippies. Worth reading no matter what side of the political spectrum you inhabit." Aladar Gabriel

His gifts are readily apparent, his ability to lead unmatched, and the possibilities for his future endless.

When the game morphs into a real-life experience with the election of President Abner Baari, no one could have foreseen the consequences or ramifications.
