Jason and Craig Patterson are young philanthropists, brothers who inherited a large family-owned corporation from their father. But the new CEO, Steve Jaggers, is a greedy and selfish opportunist who wants to strip it away and gain personal control of over $120 million in share value.
To accomplish that goal, Jaggers enlists a Venezuelan man with a murky history and questionable motives. Soon, Jagger’s partner starts to suck him deeper into a far more sinister web of international intrigue, a web that involves extortion, financial manipulation, and the sex-smuggling of children. When they murder Craig Patterson, Jason suspects Jaggers is responsible and pledges to prove it and avenge his brother’s death.
Jason and Craig were two of a four-member brotherhood, devoted friends since childhood. Now, only J.L. White, a Biloxi, Mississippi, Detective, and Jason remain alive to unravel the conspiracy and bring Jaggers and his South American accomplices to justice.
But Jason uncovers a plot far more complex and deadly than he ever could have imagined. And the stakes become far higher.

I read Freriks' first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, and loved it. Roland is a great third novel. The concept of finding a hidden story behind the people and events that ended the War of 1812 is awesome. The story grabbed me right from the start and kept me intrigued until the ending. And, wow, what an ending! Great read.
Roland: Of Pirates and Patriots is a story about patriotism and the greed for gold. It follows the life of Roland who is a child when he witnesses the murder of his father and takes upon himself a plan to use stolen gold to purchase arms for the defence of America. The narrative covers a number of years leading up to the war of 1812 as young Roland matures and seeks a method to convert the gold, hidden in England, into weapons that can be stored near Baltimore until they are needed for defence of the city. Sought by a former ships mate who wants the gold, he enlists the help of both pirates and privateers to get the arms which are eventually needed during the War of 1812 after Washington has been burned and the British are advancing on Fort McHenry and Baltimore. The various characters were well rounded and with the plot twists were woven into a well written narrative which I enjoyed reading. Recommended.

This is a fascinating novel about the lesser known War of 1812 – a conflict between the young United States and Britain that played out in the background of the Napoleonic Wars. The book filled a few big gaps in my understanding of that period. The story begins in 1800 with a shipment of gold from London to the New World. The precious cargo is lost and will be hunted in the years to follow, leading the reader down the path of pirate adventures and political intrigues. The author strikes a fine balance between the coming-of-age part concerning Roland, the boy who knows where said gold is hidden, and the depiction of the historical facts. There is a slight formatting issue, with the opening chapter starting on a left-hand page. However, a fun read that should appeal particularly to younger readers.
The Dome is dying
Only one element can save it, and there is only one place it can be found.
Two hundred years after the apocalypse that poisoned the atmosphere, the last remaining sanctuary is in danger of dying from lack of oxygen. Desperate measures are taken and Mrr, a time scientist, is returned to 1988 to find the only substance that might save the Dome. But Mrr finds himself in a bewildering new world and makes critical misjudgments that threaten to ruin, not save, the Dome.
In an alternately hilarious and deadly serious set of complex plot twists, turns, and bizarre characters, this wild ride finally explodes in a surprising and satisfying conclusion.
Freriks creates a vivid environment where reality meets science fiction. From the first chapter of the book, I was taken on a literary journey painted with mystery, exploration, humor, and imagination. Bravo to Tim for writing such a great book. Dr. Roger Clapp
Mrr is one of those crazy books that made me laugh hysterically, fear for the characters, and wonder what is coming next. It was a real fast-paced read that kept me glued to the pages. Like his first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, the twists and turns were unexpected and engaging. Can’t wait to read his newest book, Roland. Great job! Amazon customer
I am a huge fan of science fiction and I loved Freriks' first book, Apocalyse Disrupted, so I wanted to try Mrr. I was not disappointed. I was drawn in right from the first page and it didn't let me go. It was certainly a unique and complex story. Great read. I loved the relationship between Mrr and Marge, but even the bad guys were unique and captivating. There were parts where I laughed really hard. And the ending was an incredible ride. Another great book by Tim Freriks. Can't wait for the next one. Lauren Rowell.

“From my military experience—I was embedded with Afghans for a year—Freriks is spot on with Middle Eastern customs and culture, but more importantly, the viewpoint of radical Islam. I was amazed at the depth and breadth of military intelligence, IT, and Middle Eastern culture. Not to mention how scary the book parallels today's world. Great story. Couldn't put it down. Kudos.” Captain Phillip Blaine, Navy, MSC, USN
The Robbins are determined to get their money back—and get even.

But, he did.
To achieve their goal, Wayne develops a brilliant plan. Join these sweet retired seniors as they travel the country from RV park to RV park in their motor coach and execute their strategy. They have to overcome unexpected challenges, conspiracies, mysteries, crossed loyalties, and, finally, to survive, they must face the people they fear the most, people who can either save or destroy them.
