For_Immediate_Release: POLITICAL WRITER HALLI CASSER-JAYNE PENS POLITICAL THRILLER United States of America -- (New York, New York--August 28, 2008) Smart, sassy, unconventional and blatantly honest, that is author-photographer Halli Casser-Jayne, and that best describes her work whether as a writer or photographer. Next week Ms. Casser-Jayne will release her novel, MAMBO, A Conversation with the Gods as a web-exclusive, an eBook available through,, and her own website, MAMBO, A Conversation with the Gods takes place in The Republic, a Central American land of stark contrasts, where black is black and white is white; where love or hate is the only option, where no middle ground exists. This is the world reporter Sydney Gordon finds herself in -- Sydney bright, beautiful, impulsive and determined. Sydney who like the country she is assigned to cover understands little of compromise and is tortured by the muted shades of life. Enter Sydney’s world, a world where a civil war pits father against son and brother against brother in the fight for human dignity; a world that bursts with the fierce passions of humanity. Join Sydney in her race against the brutal government of the Republic in her quest to find Jorge Petro-Brain one of the many disappeared - los desconocidos - a young man who may hold the answer to who is responsible for the brutal murder of an American nun. Jorge’s life has touched many, and the “many” will change Sydney’s life forever. One of the many is Adam Scott, the television producer with whom Sydney shares her journey. Adam is handsome, glib but wracked with demons. Adam and Sydney will compete for the same prize, Jorge’s story, using each other in a dance that nearly destroys them both even as they discover their love for one another in the midst of a country lost in the maelstrom of madness.
