Mystery – The Alcatraz Rose

The Alcatraz RoseThe Alcatraz Rose
A Lawrence Kingston Mystery
By Anthony Eglin
Publisher: Larkspur House
ISBN: 978-1502707031
Pages: 236
Genre: Mystery

Three intriguing riddles, two in Britain and one in the U.S., are intertwined, eventually coming together in a skillfully constructed and tautly written, ‘thinking person’s mystery.’

No sooner than a thirteen-year-old child begs Lawrence Kingston to reinvestigate her mother’s disappearance–a case still unsolved for eight years–the redoubtable botanist, professor, and sleuth receives news that an English rose, extinct for half a century, has been discovered growing on Alcatraz island, 5,000 miles from its former home.

As Kingston searches for clues to both mysteries he uncovers the murder of an elderly reclusive gentleman whom he suspects of having firsthand knowledge of the rose. Hampered by a fog of duplicity and lies, his investigation nevertheless leads him to a shocking discovery, the last thing he would ever suspect: a link to one of Britain’s most notorious crimes from the distant past.

The Alcatraz Rose is a multi-layered adventure that starts with an innocent cry for help, but turns into a treacherous roller coaster ride that ends with lives hanging in the balance–including Lawrence Kingston’s.

International Suspense – The Fourth Rule

The Fourth RuleThe Fourth Rule
By Douglass Seaver
Publisher: Oak Tree Press
Published: December 2014
ISBN: 978-1610091565
Pages: 291
Genre: International Suspense

The Fourth Rule, an international suspense novel, is a fast-paced, literary adrenalin rush! It’s the story of a man’s struggle to keep the secret of his brother’s disappearance from the CIA.

After returning from three years as a Green Beret in Vietnam, Mark Grant vanishes. Twenty-two years later, the CIA sends two private investigators to question Matthew Grant about his brother’s disappearance. Matthew denies knowing anything, but the investigators don’t believe him. For over two decades, he has lived the fourth rule—“tell no secrets”, but now he faces a serious challenge. Jack Straw, a rogue CIA agent, orchestrates a desperate manhunt to find out what happened to Mark, while Matthew races to find out why the CIA is interested in the secret he has kept for half his life. The action escalates as the rogue agent and Matthew struggle for advantage until the agent kidnaps Matthew’s sixteen year old daughter to ransom her for information on Matthew’s brother. One night the two meet halfway across the Brooklyn Bridge (the book cover) to exchange information on where Matthew’s daughter is held and the location of Matthew’s missing brother.

The story reaches a climax when Matthew rescues his kidnapped daughter, kills the rogue agent, and prevents a terrible wrong from the past being repeated. The question of what happened to Mark Grant remains unanswered until the last paragraph in the book, when the secret is revealed to the reader, but not to any of the characters in the book. Thus, Matthew lives up to the fourth rule—“tell no secrets”.
