Released: Jan. 1, 2012

Exhaustive—and sometimes exhausting—life of the Nazi functionary who rivaled Adolf Hitler in power and influence. Read full book review >

MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 1, 2009

"The plotting is delectably tricky, but the character of Dark requires more shading before he returns for the promised next episode."

ISLAND 731 by Jeremy Robinson
Released: March 26, 2013

"This is the stuff that comic books, video games and successful genre franchises are made of."
The novel's premise is reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau, but the author adds a World War II back story and a contemporary setting to make it a generic, improbable thriller. Read full book review >
