Killer Kane Book Review:

The leader of one of the most successful U. S. Marine long range reconnaissance teams during the Vietnam War, Andrew Finlayson recounts his team’s experiences in the year leading up to the Tet Offensive of 1968. Using primary sources, such as Marine Corps unit histories and his own weekly letters home, he presents a highly personal account of the dangerous missions conducted by this team of young Marines as they searched for North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong units in such dangerous locales as Elephant Valley, the Enchanted Forest, Charlie Ridge, Happy Valley and the Que Son Mountains. In numerous close contacts with the enemy, the team (code-name Killer Kane) fights for its survival against desperate odds, narrowly escaping death time and again. The book gives vivid descriptions of the life of recon Marines when they are not on patrol, the beauty of the landscape they traverse, and several of the author’s Vietnamese friends. It also explains in detail the preparations for, and the conduct of, a successful long range reconnaissance patrol.

I, Doll Book Review:

When the New York Dolls' bassist died suddenly at age 55 in 2004, he left behind not only their timeless music--and many thousands of fans and friends--but a memoir of the Dolls' early years. This distinctive and extroverted voice of an undisciplined showman is presented with an introduction and epilogue by his widow, Barbara. This up close and personal perspective of the band's early days and late nights--including an instance where he locks himself out of the studio in full drag while tripping on LSD--chronicles the glorious, glamorous era of high times, high drama, and low comedy that captures the music, the style, and the life of the all-too-brief existence of the New York Dolls.

Rice Paddy Recon Book Review:

A young U.S. Marine officer recounts his experiences of the Vietnam War over a nineteen month period. He graphically describes what it was like to perform three distinct combat missions: long-range ground reconnaissance in the Annamite Mountains of I Corps, infantry operations in the rice paddies and mountains of Quang Nam Province and special police operations for the CIA in Tay Ninh Province. Using Marine Corps official unit histories, CIA documents, and his weekly letters home, the author relies almost exclusively on primary sources in providing an accurate and honest account of combat at the small unit level. Of particular interest is his description of his assignment to the CIA as a Provincial Reconnaissance Unit (PRU) advisor in Tay Ninh Province, where he participated in several secret missions as part of the controversial Phoenix Program. The name and contribution of the CIA’s most valuable spy during the war, the famous “Tay Ninh Source,” is revealed.

My Meteoric Rise to Obscurity Book Review:

"I was fortunate to work with some of the biggest stars in show business. People such as John Wayne, Lucy, Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, George Burns, Jack Benny, Cher, Hal Holbrook, Jaime Farr, Rob Reiner, Sharon Gless, Anne Francis, Jack Lemmon, and more. Many of them were dolls.a few were putzes. I, also, got to know lots of studio and network bosses.some creative, most dumb as a doorknob. I earned a heck of a good living during those fifty years. No regrets. Since this is my book, I intend to tell the truth about me and the people I met during my journey. I have no intention to purposely hurt or be ugly about anyone. However, I am honest about the people I mention in this book. My praise and gratitude might embarrass some of my friends and co-workers - but they will get over it. If some of the people think I was too rough or made them out as monsters - so be it. They'll get over it, too."

Bring Me Flowers Book Review:

‘WOW WOW WOW!!!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!… From literally the first page you're hooked and gripped!! Kept on the edge of my seat throughout I just couldn't put it down… my new all time favourite author!!… I just wish I could've given it more than five stars!!!' Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars She didn’t know he was watching. Until it was too late. She’d walked this way hundreds of times before. She knew every twist and turn. She didn’t know this was the last time she’d ever walk this path. Hidden deep in the forest, schoolgirl Felicity Parker is found carefully laid out on a rock with nothing but a freshly picked bunch of flowers next to her. The body lies just off a popular hiking route, and Detective Jenna Alton thinks the killer might be a visitor to the town, until another girl’s body is found at the local swimming pool, once again posed with a bunch of flowers. Jenna recognizes the signs of a serial killer, and thinks it could be a local. As the town is gripped with fear, Jenna must examine each person the girls knew, and trust between neighbors starts to crumble. Both girls went out on their own, and were found where they shouldn’t be. Were they taken by chance, or did they know their killer? How were they lured so far from safety? And can Jenna and her team find the killer before another life is lost? An absolutely nail-biting thriller that will keep you up all night. If you enjoy Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott, you’ll love this! **Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone** What readers are saying about Bring Me Flowers: ‘Oh my flipping goodness!!... kept me guessing until the very last page… I cannot fault this book at all – if I could read it all over again for the very first time, I would jump at the chance… Hard hitting, addictive, and incredibly chilling… A truly toe curling read – fantastic!'

The Book Nurse ‘Wow bloody brilliant! This book had everything – it was dark, creepy and disturbing and made me get chills… I read it in super fast time because I couldn't put it down. An excellent read.'

Brilliant. A masterpiece.’ Renita D’Silva ‘The killer sent shivers down my spine as his narrative outlined his desire to kill and his unique MO… I love it when a writer creates a character that creeps me out inside my head and this is one guy you wouldn't want turning up with a bunch of flowers for you!… So many potential suspects, my wee head was spinning as I tried to work out the whodunnit and whydunnit! I do love a good old workout for the brain and this one kept me guessing all the way through!’ Chapter in My Life ‘Gripping main plot with a villain I never in a million years spotted.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘The story will suck you in and keep you guessing until the end, despite trying to make you believe that you know who the murderer is.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘This book has surpassed my expectations and is even better than that I could have imagined.’ Sean’s Book Reviews

The Modern Weird Tale Book Review:

This is a critical study of many of the leading writers of horror and supernatural fiction since World War II. The primary purpose is to establish a canon of weird literature, and to distinguish the genuinely meritorious writers of the past fifty years from those who have obtained merely transient popular renown. Accordingly, the author regards the complex, subtle work of Shirley Jackson, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Aickman, T.E.D. Klein, and Thomas Ligotti as considerably superior to the best-sellers of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, and Anne Rice. Other writers such as William Peter Blatty, Thomas Tryon, Robert Bloch, and Thomas Harris are also discussed. Taken as a whole, the volume represents a pioneering attempt to chart the development of weird fiction over the past half-century.

Whisper in the Night Book Review:

She opens her eyes and struggles to make out the dark room around her. One thing she knows instantly – her wrists are bound and she’s tied to a chair, unable to move. As she screams for help, she hears footsteps outside. He’s coming… Fifteen-year-old Lindy Rosen has been having nightmares for weeks, waking in a panic, screaming that there’s a man in her room watching her sleep. Her parents assumed it was her overactive imagination, but when one morning they find Lindy missing from her bedroom, they’re not so sure. Detective Jenna Alton is called in to investigate. Within hours of the schoolgirl going missing, the kidnapper reaches out to Jenna with a video of Lindy bound and tied to a chair, crying to be set free. And a simple message – you’ve got 24 hours to find her or I kill her. Jenna’s team work around the clock to try to find Lindy before the deadline, but time runs out, and Jenna receives a devastating message. The killer has made good on his promise. He’s playing a dangerous game. And no one knows what his next move will be. But just two days later, one of Lindy’s school friends is taken in the middle of the night and the countdown begins again. Completely addictive from the very start, if you like Lisa Regan, Karin Slaughter and Rachel Abbott you’ll love Whisper in the Night.
