Author: William Clark

Dragoons, The Sound of Sabers
(From the Author of "An Honorable Endeavor" - also on Amazon)
For seven days and six nights in 1760, a terrible battle of attrition rolled across a once peaceful valley. The men locked in combat were from the famed Swedish 'Yellow Regiment', the Austrian 6th corp. and a pitifully small battalion of Prussian Infantry and Cavalry/Dragoons. The Prussians defended the Castle Worth for King and country, becoming a flash point for war over the contested lands of Silesia. It was an enlightened age, yet no quarter was given on either side. Educated men let loose the dogs of war creating a slaughterhouse where madness, murder and suicide wrapped itself in rabid loyalty to flag and honor. Good men on all sides fell by the hundreds, dropped into the abyss of history. There is no glory in war, only a hard truth told by the survivors. This is their story.

Title: Ascension Day #1

Author: John Matthews

Ascension Day #1:

Only 47 days left until Larry Durrant's execution, but lawyer Lac McElroy is determined to save his client's life.

There are only three small problems: the evidence against Durrant is overwhelming, he's made a full confession, and he wants to die...

But Jac's hungry to make his mark and he knows something just isn't right about Larry Durrant's murder conviction. Trouble is, everyone thinks Larry's guilty, from the Louisiana Governor right down to the accused, who has confessed to the crime and now wants to make peace with his maker.

Jac soon discovers that someone doesn't want anyone — especially a lawyer — digging around this case. And they'll stop at nothing to make sure Larry's execution goes ahead on schedule. Now Jac must decide whether he's prepared to risk his career, his reputation and his life to save a man who, by his own admission, is a murderer...

When DEATH is your only hope...
