Review

5-Stars!  Glynn Young, Amazon Reviewer:   "An exciting, riveting read that explores courage and treachery, love and fear. Another crackerjack novel of World War II, following last year's Amongst My Enemies. The reader is right there, carried along for one wild, breathtaking ride."
 
5 Stars!  GinnyReader, Amazon Reviewer:   "I have read all of William Brown's e-books and can say that all are great reads. The way Brown combines his military knowledge, his familiarity with European villages and his ability to create very real characters into the world of espionage in a time that was near the end of WWII is remarkable." 
 
5 Stars!  Tanya, Amazon Reviewer:  "If you want a really good story, one that pulls you into the action, then this is the book to read. Winner Lose All is a WWII era drama with a strong list of characters, both the good guys/bad guys, and some you just can't decide where they fall in this tale of intrigues. It's a non-stop adventure."
 
5 Stars!  Thomas Duff, Amazon Reviewer:  "I liked Winner Lose All for both the characters and the emotional struggles they had to suffer. As usual, a very good read from William Brown, and I'm looking forward to his next novels."
 
5 Stars!  Michael B., Amazon Reviewer: "This is the second of Mr. Brown's books that I have read and while I enjoyed both, this one was much harder to put down. For me this was simply a very enjoyable read with nicely developed characters and an intriguing story line that pulled me in and wouldn't let go. Well done, Mr. Brown! I look forward to reading more of your work.

More About the Author

I am the author of six mystery and suspense novels, five of which have been released as e-books to date, all five of which have also been released as audio books on Audible, the Amazon and ITunes subsidiary.

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,' my newest, has 30 Five Star! Reviews out of 35, a 4.8 average. It 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. It can be found at Amazon.com/Aim-True-Brothers-Political-ebook/dp/B00GBFJ1IA

'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. It has already garnered a 4.3 rating on 180 Kindle reviews, including 91 Five-Stars and a 4.3 Star average. Check it out at Amazon.com/dp/B004NIFSVG

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 Amazon.com/dp/B006LAOIWY

'Thursday at Noon,' 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 it was released as an e-book and already has a 4.4 rating on 92 Kindle reviews, including 52 Five-Stars! You can find it at Amazon.com/Thursday-at-Noon-ebook/dp/B008AMSH00

Finally, 'Winner Lose All,' has a 4.5 rating on 110 Kindle reviews, including 68 Five-Stars! It 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. It can be found at Amazon.com/dp/B00CEOKUR8

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 billbrownthrillernovels.com

The strength of Winner Lose All lies in the intricate dialogue and the various layers of the relationships between the characters. The motivations of the individuals was fascinating and made for a fast and engaging read.

The author should have done more research on weaponry and geography. For example, on his first drop into Nazi Germany Scanlon, the protagonist, flies in a Junkers JU-52. Reminiscing on that flight a few weeks later, the author refers to a DC-3, the civilian version of the American C-47! On a number of occasions the author refers to Allied Spitfires and Hurricanes, the latter of which was taken out of front line service two years earlier and used only for training and mail delivery by 1945.

Geographically, references to the length of the April days in Moscow is incorrect. In a scene in Stalin's office he writes about the first hints of the new day at 4 AM. A simple internet search confirms that the sun doesn't rise in Moscow until 7 AM that time of year.

I'm not a fan of Tom Clancy detail-overkill, but some is needed to add realism. For example, there is no reference to any landmarks in the city of Leipzig. Rather than wandering down some generic tree lined boulevard, it would have added credibility to at least mention the name of the main square in the city, the largest cathedral or the name of the main streets to show the author actually knew more than randomly picking the name of the city for the setting.

A recommendation would be for the author to commission a new cover. The one shown on Amazon looks like a cartoon and the content bears no relation to the story.

`Winner Lose All' starts near the close of World War 2. The Allies were in a race to extricate military intelligence and German scientists before one of the others could spirit them away. Ed Scanlon came to Leipzig, Germany, an OSS agent working with the British. There he met the leader of the communist resistance, Hanni Steiner, and fell in love even though he knew better than to trust anyone. When Scanlon was taken by the Gestapo in Leipzig and tortured for information, he took longer than most, but he broke right before his friends rescued him. After his torture, he went back to England to heal, but he never gave up on Hanni and going back to rescue her. Scanlon's sent back to Germany on what amounts to a suicide mission by his British handlers to extract a German scientist who could change the face of modern warfare forever. Yet Hanni had her own mission orders and she will stop at nothing to take the scientist back to Russia. No matter who wins, they still lose...

`Winner Lose All' is a story written about a very contentious time in history. I felt the author depicted not only the locales, but the people fighting on both sides so strongly it simply came to life before my eyes. This book combined war, political intrigue, spies, action, and a bittersweet romance. I'm usually not a fan of novels about World War 2, but the way the author handled the subject matter was both honest and respectful. I enjoyed the action and adventure of the story and how it truly lived up to its title - even if you win, you may just lose it all.

I enjoy reading about World War II but I found this one a little slow. It was a freebie so I was happy but if I had to pay for it. Well, you know...

Having read other works by this author I'm really disappointed that this work is a weak melodrama that wants to be a romance novel.

If it's action that you crave then this book isn't going to do a thing for you. It's a mishmash melodrama of romance and wanna be action that winds up being a bad black and white "B" Movie script from the 1940's.

Can not recommend this book for any adult but the pre-teen crowd might like it................

This is a good book however, for some reason he has decided to go with the reality crowd. Unfortunately I do not read for reality. I like it when the good guys win and the bad guys lose. Happy endings may not be true but I do not care. I like 'em. This ends sadly. It is sort of the Stephen King vice Dean Koontz thing. King kills everyone and tells you to suck it up. Koontz lets his characters live and succeed. Good should triumph over evil completely not partially. Hence my four stars.

This is a very good novel that takes place towards the last days of ww 2. The characters are super real and you are dragged kicking and screaming from the first chapter to the last. The impossible love affair and the German ss since this story up just fine. This is a work of fiction but as you read it your mind tells you it has to be true. Very well done Mr. Brown. Very well done indeed !

The story could not be possible or am I wrong?
It is fiction, but it could have happened.
The end of WW2 was a reckless time of ending tyranny breaking and sending out a new power struggle of determined enemies. Two intolerable ideologies led by leaders hell-bent on survival and destruction of the other now clashing in conflict could have created the characters that the author created to tease our imagination.
Bravo Mr. Brown.
Five stars,.
