More About the Author

I am the author of seven mystery all of which have been released as Kindle Select e-books, five of which have also been released as audio books on Audible, the Amazon and ITunes subsidiary. Half of these are the e-book editions of my successful, hardback and paperback books, published by St. Martins, Beaufort Books, Harlequin Gold Eagle and others, in US and foreign editions. The other half are original e-books.

Bob Burke is back! "Burke's Gamble," Book #2 of the Bob Book action-adventure series will be released om March 1 and is now available for pre-order and delivery that day. Order one now.

Also, check out "Cold War Trilogy," my just released 3-novel, box set of my very popular spy-versus-spy, action, suspense, thriller novels -- Winner Lose All, Amongst My Enemies, and Thursday at Noon. Get 3 for the price of 2, plus a free download of Aim True My Brothers.

My newest thriller novel, 'Burke's War' - think 'The American Sniper' meets 'The Godfather,' or 'Bob Lee Swagger' takes on the Gambinos. What would you do if your airplane was coming in to land, you looked out the window, and saw a murder taking place on a rooftop as it flashes past below? And who would believe you? That might stop you or I, but not Bob Burke. An ex-Army Ranger and Delta Force Commander, nothing much could.

'Aim True, My Brothers,' is a contemporary, American political action thriller, as Middle East terrorism explodes on American shores. Ibrahim Al-Bari is a skilled Hamas commander who has battled Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan and now takes his private war to the heart of the American government itself -- and the clock is ticking.

'The Undertaker,' is a snarky, fun, fast-paced domestic thriller with a slug of humor, romance, and stark terror! Someone with a sharp scalpel and an embalming table is planting bodies und other people's names. If Pete Talbott doesn't stop them, he'll be next on the list.

Amongst My Enemies, with a 4.3 rating on 179 Kindle reviews, including and 100 Five-Stars, is a fast-paced Cold War action adventure story filled with international intrigue, espionage, revenge, and an old German U-boat filled with a fortune in gold bars, treasure, and a secret that will tear NATO apart. You can find it at

'Thursday at Noon,is a Joan Kahn Book originally published by St. Martin's Press in hardback, in paperback by Harlequin's Gold Eagle, is set in Egypt in 1962 and deals with murder, espionage, an Army coup, and new rockets aimed at the heart of Israel. Reviewed favorably in the "New Yorker" and other major publications.

Finally, 'Winner Lose All,' is set in the closing months of WWII. As one war winds down, all eyes are on the next one, it is a tale of fast-moving international suspense and espionage. As alliances begin to shift, old enemies become tomorrow's friends, and everyone wants their piece of the revolutionary new German weapons technologies.

In addition to the novels, I've written four award-winning screenplays. Preview Chapters from all six suspense novels, can be found on my web site

Peter Talbot is still reeling from his wife's untimely passing when he discovers someone reused his wife's obituary to cover up the death of someone else. When he discovers several deceased couples' obituaries have been abused in the same way, he cannot let it rest and sets out to find out what's going on and set it right.

When the author contacted me to review his most recent novel, he told me to pull up a beach chair and enjoy. Well, I sat inside in the air-conditioning (can you blame me, it's in the mid-90s!) but I still enjoyed it. How could I not when it was a fast paced thriller I could actually understand! Sometimes when I'm reading a book from this genre I find myself bogged down with details and characters that I don't actually care about, but The Undertaker moved so quickly without boring downtime and useless characters and details.

Aside from that, I also enjoyed that the story takes the readers all over the country as Pete tries to find out who used his wife's death for their own use. The only real problem I has with the novel is that even though Pete forms a romantic relationship with a character named Sandy, I didn't feel any chemistry between the two as I read.

So yeah, in a nutshell I would recommend this to anyone looking for a thrilling, easy mystery to read on the beach. Or your living room, if you prefer.

If you like suspense, action and are into conspiracy theories, I recommend this book.

The story line was the first thing to grab me. Here is a man who lost his wife and everything he stood for and now someone is not only using his name but his dead wife's name to bury mysterious people. Not once, but several times! Having nothing else to lose, Pete travels around trying to find out not only who is doing this but why, while trying to get killed for nosing around.

The main character here, Pete, is likable. A bit dense sometimes, I end up rooting for him and worrying for him when he continues to put himself in danger with questionable men. I have to admire his persistence at finding out what people are getting out of this whole plot, yet at the same time I want to scream at him that he is way over his head and to just walk away.

William Brown did an excellent job in pulling me in and keeping my attention throughout the book. There wasn't a rest in the plot and more importantly, no down times. It was constant action and suspense.

Mr. Brown's book is an e-pub on Kindle, Sony, Nook, IBook, and all the others.

Two obituaries, two stating he died in Mexico the other stating he and his wife died in Columbus, Ohio....but how could that be....Peter Emerson Talbot was alive and reading the obituary, and he had attended the funeral in Ohio. Attending this funeral sure ended up with a lot of trouble for Peter and also a lot of information that could put a number of folks behind bars. Something was pretty fishy about all of this.

The real Peter stayed in Columbus after "his" funeral and decided to check out obituaries for the past few months to see who had died and if there were similarities in deaths. He found quite a few obituaries of couples who died in unusual circumstances and who had no surviving relatives, but they all had the same funeral director and same attorney. Peter also found a lot of suspicious activity going on and decided to check out the offices of an attorney and a doctor who were involved....bad move, Peter.

Peter knew he got himself into more than he could handle and had to get out of town and mighty quickly, but how? He had no money, no clothes, and no car....they stole everything. He had some ideas, though. He had to bring these guys who were true criminals posing as honest citizens down.

Trying to be an honest citizen when the other citizens were not definitely wasn't a wise choice for Peter.

Peter made even more unwise choices, but he also made some right ones. Peter was witty, clever, and a character you will love.

Don't miss reading this has a little bit of everything.....frightening scenes, clever twists and turns, love, and humor.

From the front cover , I could tell that this was going to be an excellent serial killer novel with a hint of politics - the cover also gives off a Dexter feel to it - think the serial killer series by Jeff Lindsey which was also made into a hit TV show . As I opened the book , I was amazed at the likeness of the serial killer's mo to Dexter and unfortunately for the first few chapters I couldn't get Dexter out of my head as like Dexter - The Undertaker is a clean killer , he lies them on a steel bed that kind of reminded me of a hospital gurney, straps them to the gurney and uses a surgical scapel to kill them , Using a surgical scapel can always result in two ways - a sharp , quick death or a slow and painful torture depending which arteries or veins you slice. As a mystery fan , I found The Undertaker to be a great read as the novel was fast-paced and kept the reader thrilled as I'm not one of those readers who like too many details in my murder mysteries - The Undertaker was more James Patterson and Jeff Lindsey rather than Karin Slaughter and Patricia Cornwall in writing style. The Undertaker begins with a computer technician reading in the paper one day - a death notice for him and his wife , however he doesn't mind his name used though he is eager to find out why, but using his wife's as she died a few months ago by Cancer and Paul Talbot is still grieving . As the novel reads on we see Paul team up with Sandy , who becomes Paul's girlfriend of sorts to try and get to the bottom of this and clear up his and his wife's name. The odyssey takes Paul and Sandy into a whirlwind world of corruption, politics , danger and finally murder. As the two get deeper in , can they find themselves a way out or will Paul and Sandy fall victims to the serial killer known as "The Undertaker
