Tales of Ramasun (US Spies in Thailand During the Vietnam War) by M.H. Burton

Genre: History

Deal Type: BARGAIN

“Tales of Ramasun” is a different kind of Vietnam War story. The kind of war story you may not have heard before, the story of the secret war, the war behind the curtain, the war whose soldiers were sworn to silence. Now is the time for it to come out, before all of the old spooks and spies who participated in it are gone. It is not a ‘blood and guts’ war story. There were no Rambos at Ramasun. It is a story of brains not brawn. Smart young men…linguists who rode their typewriters into battle, radio men who fought wearing headsets, not steel pots, intelligence anaylsts who teased the secrets our enemies did not wish us to know out of mountains of raw data. Young GIs, most of them dragged unwillingly from civilian jobs, college campuses, or fresh from high school, to fight a strange “Top Secret” shadow war in Thailand, a country most had barely heard of and which was infinitely more remote and exotic then than it is now.

Talk about culture shock! The Thailand of the 1960′s was tourist destination…

Tobacco Sticks (Southern Mysteries) by William Elliott Hazelgrove

Genre: Historical Fiction

Deal Type: BARGAIN

A Great Summer read and a real A To Kill A Mockingbird story. Tobacco Sticks takes us back to the Southern town of Richmond in 1946. It is the story of a Senatorial campaign, the rise of the unions, and Burke Hartwell, a lawyer and civic minded man who must choose between two worlds. The war is ending and for Lee Hartwell and his family it bodes the end of something they won’t understand until it is too late.

” Explosive racial tension, betrayal and murder, difficult ethical and social decisions, first love and a dramatic denouemont in a sweaty Virginia courtroom are skillfully entwined in this haunting tale which has all the characteristics of a good summer read.” Starred Review Publishers Weekly
Book of the Month Club Selection

“The summer my brother came home from the war was so hot they had to repave the soft tar of Hermitage Street twice. I remember watching the crews, their white t-shirts glowing in the July night with the gravel smoke dancing white under a low moon. It was the last war summer and we received a telegram saying Lucas has been wounded. First we thought he had…

On the Back of the Beast by S F Chapman

Genre: Literary Fiction

Deal Type: BARGAIN

Everyone knew it was coming but no one was sure just when it would happen.

It had been over a hundred years since the last big earthquake had decimated the San Francisco Bay Area and another massive tremor was long overdue. The slumbering beast that is the Hayward Fault finally awoke on an ordinary October morning, catching the 7 million people of Bay Area by surprise as they tended to their routine affairs.

Will seventeen-year-old Kayla Hendley, airline pilot Burt Weaver, precocious second grader Gwen Mills and many others live through the convolutions of the angry earth? Surviving the savage pummeling will have more to do with blind luck than any careful preparations.

The lives of ordinary people will be forever changed by the colossal natural disaster that is The Beast.

Sandrine’s Letter to Tomorrow by Dedra Johnson

Genre: Historical Fiction

Deal Type: BARGAIN

“Reading Dedra Johnson’s Sandrine’s Letter to Tomorrow, I was fully in the presence of the mind, heart and soul of a richly rendered, fascinating fictional character. I knew I was also in the presence of the brillian voice and sensibility of a major new American writer. This is an important novel by a true artist.”–Robert Olen Butler

“Dedra Johnson has caught something wonderful in Sandrine’s Letter to Tomorrow. She writes brilliantly about childhood, New Orleans, the intricacies of a vexed family life. Sandrine is a remarkable debut novel that will catch your heart.”–Frederick Barthelme

Despite being a straight-A student and voracious reader, eight-year old Sandrine Miller is treated as little more than a servant by her mother, who forces Sandrine to clean house, do chores and take care of her younger half sister, Yolanda. On top of the despair of her life at home, Sandrine must confront growing up against the harshness of life in 1970s-era New Orleans, where men in cars follow her home from school and she is ostracized because she is a light-skinned black girl. The only refuge Sandrine has against her bleak world is spending summers with her beloved grandmother, Mamalita. After Mamalita’s death, Sandrine realizes that she…

When Johnny Came Marching Home by William Heffernan

Genre: Historical Fiction

Deal Type: BARGAIN

“A solid historical from Edgar-winner Heffernan.”
Publishers Weekly

“Mystery fans will zip through this, fans of historical fiction will enjoy the fin de guerre mood.”
Library Journal

“Heffernan swings his vivid tale back and forth between past and present, war and peace—a neat tour de force he pulls off with admirable assurance.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Moving back and forth in time, the well-paced narrative involves the reader with powerfully vivid descriptions of horrendous battles like the Wilderness and Gettysburg, of terrible raids on civilians, and of great physical and mental anguish suffered by the soldiers. Heffernan skillfully presents a realistic and evocative tale of war and its lingering effects.”
Historical Novels Review

“Heffernan, three times nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and an Edgar Award winner, knows his history and his mysteries . . . This is really a story of war and redemption and what happens to idealistic kids who have to turn into killers.”
Globe & Mail (Canada)

“Sliding back and forth in time—before, during, and after the Civil War—William Heffernan creates a powerful, intriguing, and complex novel about the intricacies of friendship and the devastating effects of war.”
Jonathan Santlofer, author of The Death Artist
