When There’s Nowhere To Go But Too Far..

With his sole guardian turned stalker and the police on the wrong side, 19-year-old Night has little choice but to enter into an elaborate ruse in exchange for refuge. Despite his oppressive, isolated past, fulfilling his dying mentor’s grand expectations is achievable for prodigious Night, but threats and temptations abound. As Night’s power increases, will he be able to control his feral impulses, and more importantly, will he care?




A Word from the Author

Author Tina Amiri pictureWhatever The Impulse is a dark tale that follows an untapped prodigy, Night Shannien, from total obscurity, to teen idol, in the mid 1980’s pop-music era. It begins in the isolation of coastal Oregon where locals know Night as the deaf bartender who works at the Emerald Shore, a bar-restaurant owned by his father. But why Night is forced to pretend to be a deaf-mute is not the only secret his father keeps from him.
It takes a tenacious teen girl who visits the restaurant and his father’s own girlfriend to blow apart all the lies and launch Night into a new life, a world her doesn’t understand–as a fugitive–and the person who he literally dreamed could give him a normal life offers him everything but. Finally, with a growing list of impossible challenges, new threats, and his past still hunting him down, Night falls back on the only guideline that makes sense
 Whatever The Impulse.

TRANSLATED INTO 7 LANGUAGES

“KAPLAN IS UP THERE WITH THE BEST” – CLIVE CUSSLER

In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari
Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago, to
smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so
he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be
falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His
communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The
operation is only hours away and everything seems awry.
Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life.

Feature film starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Hurt in theaters 2017.




A Word from the Author

Author Howard Kaplan pictureIn 1977, The Damascus Cover rose on the Los Angeles Times best seller list for 3 months in hardcover. All then ten paperback reprint houses bid on the rights for the paperback version which went to Fawcett, the highest bidder at auction.

Now, nearly 40 years later, a film of the novel is finished for release in theaters in 2017, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Match Point and The Tudors), Olivia Thirlby, (Juno, Goliath), Jurgen Prochnow (Das Boot and The Da Vinci Code) and Navid Negahban, who played Abu Nazir in Homeland. Some changes have been made due to the long passage of time but the director/screenwriter told me several times he found himself always returning to the spine of the novel as it worked so well.

With the film coming out, I decided to reissue The Damascus Cover as an ebook and paperback. It’s been out of print all this time. This fast-paced spy novel is full of plot twists, intrigue, a central love story, all set in Damascus. With both Syria and Israel so prominent the film producers see the novel and book as very timely. The story itself about can one use one of their own people without their knowledge, to reach the desired goal is timeless so it needed no update at all. In fact, the detailed descriptions of Damascus in the novel make the novel a bit of a historical text as what the city was like before the current destruction.

Suddenly, at the end of the twenty-first century, the world changes. The tycoons rule and name themselves kings. The times are rife with extravagance and decadence, extreme power and richness. The world is one big party. And there is chaos!
No one seems to wonder how this all came to be. No one seems to wonder what is actually happening. No one seems to care about anything anymore. Except for some odd outsiders. One of them is Oscar Man, the illegitimate son of tycoon Otto Man. Once he was a prince; then he became a pariah, a jester, with nothing to lose for himself and so much to win for the world

In these turbulent times, the Second Renaissance, strange creatures come into power and try to subject every single human being to their will. They make the poor jester Oscar Man dance. But ultimately Oscar will manage to solve the biggest problems the world has ever faced!




A Word from the Author

author-koos-verkaik-pictureThe Dance of the Jester brought me from The Netherlands to the USA: Mr. Bill Thompson (the editor of Stephen King and John Grisham) invited me to discuss the book. On a scorching hot day, we found ourselves in his office in the Empire State Building in New York and together we revised and polished the manuscript and made changes in the plot.
The book is published in The Netherlands (De Dans van de Nar) and now in the USA.
I call it my most intellectual book.
