About the Author  



Roy Neely, a widower, ex-Air Force pilot, former CIA surveillance trainer, and FBI psychologist, thought he'd be settling into retirement when he turned 65. Instead, his adventures were just beginning.....

Joel Stein's world has collided with the one thing he has been trying to avoid for 30 years – his past. The successful software savant and multi-millionaire owner of Software Security Technology is burdened by the unexpected inheritance of the family-owned citrus business, Sunnyland Groves, founded by his father John in the heart of Indian River County, Florida. Joel, who deserted his family years ago feels trapped by his dying brother's wish that he maintain the family legacy. He turns to his friend Roy Neely, a retired FBI and CIA psychologist, for help. THE PARIS SURPRISE is an account of Neely's investigation of fifty-year-old secrets that unravel the lives of the dysfunctional Stein family and the black Underwood family. Secrets uncovered in Paris and Los Angeles complicate Joel’s ambiguous feelings about the family legacy and force Neely to come up with a solution that Joel finally accepts.
