Many readers of these novels have waxed enthusiastic about their ingenuous hero, historical accuracy, exciting conflicts, and intriguing mystery, and the books have also won commendations and been praised in professional reviews. Doubtless the entire world will be talking about nothing else in short order—but, for a limited time only … you can still be the first on your block! Order today and beat the rush!



Die Fasting, Great Mischief, If Two Are Dead, and Exquisite Folly are now available by special order, from the author, the publisher, and such reputable on-line bookstores as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Booksamillion. They are also listed in Books-In-Print, so that local and national chain bookstores will be able to order them for you, on request.  It may be some time before you’ll simply find them on the shelf of your local bookstore.


For the time-being, ordering directly from the author is generally the cheapest and fastest paperback alternative in the USA. Readers outside the USA may be better served by the national Amazon retailer. (The author sincerely hopes this will not always be the case … but for the moment, it is, and he urges potential readers not to hesitate to purchase in this unconventional manner.)


Copies purchased directly from the author will of course be personally autographed!



To Order Paperbacks from the Author:

Notwithstanding the slight differences in the list prices of the four books, they are offered at a price dependent on the quantity of books requested. All prices are at a discount from the list price, and include all shipping and handling costs to domestic addresses.


Note that prices are inclusive of shipping and handling, but are for USA customers only.  Foreign customers are urged to avail themselves of e-book options or their national Amazon internet retailer, as international book mailing costs have become horrendous, while print-on-demand costs have dropped.
