I’m fascinated by the ways people search for meaning and connection while buffeted about by the stresses of wartime and economic strife, again and again throughout the course of human history. I hope that my books both illuminate and entertain. I do my best to seamlessly blend fact and fiction into fast-paced, meticulously researched historical thrillers that feature well-known real life characters realistically impacting the lives of my fictional protagonists and antagonists. Writers whose works I enjoy include Caleb Carr, Nelson DeMille, Frederick Forsyth and Wilbur Smith; I hope readers of these masters will also enjoy my work.
“A Triumph Across the Board!” Kirkus Reviews
On a secret mission, Lt. Art Sutton’s team of US Rangers parachutes into Nazi Germany weeks before the end of World War II … and vanishes.
MIA for seven decades.
To the Rangers, only seconds have passed. They land, on target, in deeply wooded Bavaria–in 2011. Unaware of the passage of time, the Rangers begin their operation: sabotage, assassinations and assaults on military targets. The locals believe they are terrorists; the US soldiers believe they are in the middle of the ultimate just war.
What is good? What is evil?
This fast-paced, complex but breezy work keeps keeps readers on the edge of their seats, torn between rooting for these brave men, and knowing that the targets the men seek to destroy are innocent. But..is anyone truly innocent?
Someone is killing elderly Civil War veterans and fledgling G-Man Seth Armitage must figure out who and why, battling the corrupt Harding Administration’s obstructions and the inscrutable machinations of the ambitious young J. Egar Hoover along the way. An acclaimed historical thriller featuring meticulously researched real-life characters, Devil’s Den brings to life that fascinating and emotionally rich period between WWI and WWII in America. The 20s were roaring out, both the Civil War and WWI still haunted living memories, and Prohibition was bootlegging its way in. For fans of Caleb Carr’s The Alienist, and such nonfiction works as Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City.
The next book in the “Seth Armitage” series, In Shadowland, will take WWI veteran Armitage back to France to investigate the death of President Teddy Roosevelt’s son during the war. In the exciting yet treacherous Paris and Berlin of the Roaring 20s, Armitage will confront some unresolved issues from his own wartime service while on a special assignment for the Bureau.
