THE BETRAYAL GAME by David L. Robbins
Released: Feb. 5, 2008

"With so much betraying going on, the author finds himself forced to explain and explicate at length, generating the kind of yada-yada that stops a suspense novel dead in its tracks. Robbins (The Assassins Gallery, 2006, etc.) has done better work."
It's 1961, the Bay of Pigs is just around the corner and suddenly Havana is hit-man heaven. Read full book review >

THE END OF WAR by David L. Robbins
Released: Aug. 8, 2000

SOULS TO KEEP by David L. Robbins
Released: June 1, 1998

"That Robbins can write as gauzily as an angel when he wants to is perfectly clear, even though, like F. Scott Fitzgerald with his lesser magazine stories, he heedlessly weaves merit and the meretricious into one spool of paradisial yard goods. (Film rights to Regency Films)"
Compelling debut fantasy, modeled in part on two famed romantic ghost movies. Read full book review >
