1) Raleigh Park
While Raleigh Park is fictional, there are aspects of it, as in any novel, that will, I am sure, be familiar to many people, as it reflects, to some degree, things that have happened in our lives or the lives of family and friends. Writing the novel was very emotional for me in that after putting in four or five hours or more at times writing the book, I found the story coming alive and mentally lingering in the lives and events of my characters....
In 1937, Captain Korolev of Moscow's Criminal Investigation Division looks into the suicide of a young loyal party member who was intimately involved with a party director, a case that is unexpectedly linked to a treasonous plot.
As Stalin's great terror begins, a killer strikes. Moscow, 1936. A young woman's mutilated body is found on an alter in a deconsecrated church. Korolev is asked to investigate. The victim is discovered to be an American citizen, and now one false move will mean exile to the Zone, the frozen camps of the far north.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
