Pages: 427
Published: April 2012

Fatal Flaw is an all consuming suspense filled novel. George Clayton is a lawyer who finds himself embroiled in a difficult situation.

Memoir – The Book of Jack

The Book of Jack
Author: Jack Angel
Publisher: Abbott Press
ISBN: 978-1458203892
Pages: 217
Published: May 2012

e had only acted on camera in a couple of TV shows and commercials, so all of this-the process of making movies-was totally new and absolutely fascinating.

JACK ANGEL, son of a Greek immigrant, reinvented himself many times-from a poor student to a college graduate; from enlisted man to officer in the army during the Korean War, attending Army Ranger School; and from an eighteen-year career in radio as one of the nation’s top disc jockeys to a career as a Hollywood actor concentrating on voice-overs.

Going to Hollywood allowed him to really hit his stride, and he found himself working on animation projects for the Walt Disney Co. Pixar Studios, Marvel, Hanna/Barbera, Fox, and several others. In this memoir, Angel recalls his adventures in this informative, funny, and insightful view of Hollywood and the entertainment business. A few highlights include his interactions with director Steven Spielberg and John Lasseter, the creative head of Pixar Studios. He also spent three years as a promo announcer with The Tonight Show, starring Johnny Carson. He pays homage to his father, who came to America in the early twentieth century, became famous as the Bean King in Central California, and survived the Great Depression while raising three sons.

Jack Angel’s life story is not only a tale of personal reinvention, but also an uplifting American Dream story that spans a hundred years.

Historical Fiction – Bones in the Nile

BONES IN THE NILE: The Omdurman Chronicles
Author: Omer Ertur
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1456320522
Pages: 826
Published: September 2011

Bones In The Nile is a narrative of historical circumstances that led to the fall of Chinese Gordon and the Sudanese Mahdi. This historical narrative covers a period of nineteen months, January 1884 through July 1885, during which the Mahdist uprising in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan matures and forms the state of Mahdiya. Two principal characters in this armed political struggle are Charles George Gordon, the British general sent by the government of Great Britain to Khartoum to evacuate the Anglo-Egyptian garrison, and Muhammed Ahmed Al Mahdi, the leader of the Sudanese uprising against British colonial rule, whose army laid siege to the garrison town. Both men, the British general and the leader of the Sudanese uprising, meet their demise in highly questionable circumstances.

Five months after successfully declaring independence from British-ruled Egypt, the leader of Mahdiya dies under mysterious circumstances. The story explains and describes the circumstances that resulted in the assassination of Muhammed Ahmed and connects his unexpected death with the assassination of General Gordon. The narrative reveals the modus operandi of the two assassinations and the rationale of the assailants in undertaking these bloody actions and accomplishing their deadly aims.

The storyline is based on actual events that are described in chronicles presented at the end of the book. The main theme of the story is a contemplation upon the injustices and sufferings that resulted from the clash of two distinct civilizations, each with sharply enunciated political values, cultural habits, and religious dogmas.

Mystery/Suspense – Doing Max Vinyl

Doing Max Vinyl
Author: Frederick Lee Brooke
Publisher: Frederick Lee Brooke
ISBN: 978-0615469492
Pages: 464
Published: February 2012

Earth first. Okay, maybe second. Third? She’ll KILL you!

Max Vinyl’s type of success story can only happen in America. Rising from humble beginnings, he has reached the height of the computer recycling racket. Problem is, he’s using Lake Michigan as his own personal profit center. Even that wouldn’t have been a problem if his environmentalist girlfriend Tris hadn’t found out his dirty secret. And while Max is devastated by his love crashing down around him, he’s about to learn that the rage of a woman scorned packs far more firepower and potential for destruction than he had ever imagined.
Iraq War veteran Annie Ogden has spent three tormented months living in a cabin alone trying to re-discover her purpose in life. When two of Max’s thugs threaten Annie’s sister, she is dragged into his corrupt world in an unwitting alliance with the environmentalist, Tris. Which is really lousy news for Max. Will he hold up under the coordinated attacks of two furious women? As things spin completely out of control and complications mount, it’s all Max can do to stay one step ahead until it’s all he can do to stay alive!

A farce full of hysterics and chicanery, Frederick Lee Brooke’s first installment of the Annie Ogden mysteries is an incisive examination of corporate lunacy, greed and modern disconnection. Having received multiple four and five-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.com, Doing Max Vinyl: An Annie Ogden Mystery is loaded with razor-sharp dialogue, ingenious plotting and so much fun it should be illegal!
