NO MAN'S LAND by Pete Ayrton
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 15, 2014

"It's a book to be read at random, too intense to digest in a single reading, but a worthy addition to any history buff's library."
"Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures," Emerson wrote, a thought that underpins 46 short pieces assembled by Ayrton (The Alphabet Garden, 1995) to define the "treacherous blundering tragi-comedy" that history labels World War I.Read full book review >

LETHAL SECRETS by Pete Earley
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 1, 2005

"Earley (The Big Secret, 2004, etc.) keeps pace and paranoia effectively high, but his characters need deepening. It's also difficult following who's who in his large Russian supporting cast. A good warm-up for Tolstoy."
Twisty chase thriller involving a spectrum of Russian agents, rogue and regular, pursued by a volatile and incompatible pair of Americans. Read full book review >
