N ationally recognized ForeWord Clarion Reviews gave H.C. Wells’s new breakthrough novel “Operation Wolfe Cub” a four out of five star rating.
A baby is borne out of Germany in the middle of the night on a secret journey. He is prophesied to bring a thousand years of peace to the world, only to survive a shipwreck and be discovered on the shore of America by a disabled American veteran. Thinking he finally has the child he always wished for, he and his wife soon begin to realize that the baby just might be something else entirely.
A thought-provoking work of historical science fiction, H. C. Wells’s debut of his The Time to Tell series is a fascinating reinvention of our nation’s history and the possible truths behind it.
A taut, well-paced thriller full of intrigue and almost unbearable suspense, Wells captures your attention from the novel’s opening action sequence and never relents, always staying two steps ahead with intricate plotting marked by sharp turns and surprising twists. A razor sharp ear for time and place lend authenticity, and the marvel of weaving a fictional tale infused by magical realism within the true events of history is nothing short of astonishing. Full of gusto and quiet unease, Operation Wolfe Cub will have you questioning your beliefs and rethinking critical moments of the past seventy years.

F our years after burying his young wife, New York sales executive Christian Crews still can’t move forward with his life. Day after day, treasured memories of his beloved Elyse continue to drift through his spirit like an endless procession of mournful ghosts.
Chris wants to leave Manhattan–walk away from his job and the apartment he and Elyse once shared. He dreams of moving to New Hampshire, where he feels he just might have a chance of finding peace. But in his grieving mind, breaking away from those memories would be the same as abandoning Elyse–an unforgivable act of betrayal he could never live with.
Then, on the fourth anniversary of Elyse’s death, Chris makes two shocking discoveries, and a part of him begins to believe that she would want him to go on with his life.
Two weeks later he makes the move to New Hampshire, and minutes after arriving in the small rural village of Mountain Step, he meets a beautiful local woman with mesmerizing gray eyes and a heart as big as the surrounding mountains.

Could there be a future for them? Will Elyse allow it? After all, she’s still deep within Chris’s heart–a place no one else has ever been.

K risten Kroiter was sixteen, a high-school sophomore, when she was injured in a car accident. Dr. Ted Cogan had saved her life when he treated her in the ER six months ago-but now police detectives were questioning Cogan about her, in intimate detail. What was going on? What had she told them?
That’s just it, the cops said. She hadn’t told them anything. She had died. Looked like a suicide. And Cogan was in a heap of trouble.
Tense and twisting, Knife Music is the story of a doctor struggling to clear his name after being accused of raping and causing the suicide of a young girl. The novel pits Cogan, a forty-three-year- old surgeon and self-described womanizer, against Hank Madden, a handicapped veteran detective. From the outset it’s not clear who is victim and who is victimizer, as the usually dispassionate.
Madden grapples with his long- suppressed prejudices and his obsession with bringing Ted Cogan to justice at any cost. It all leads up to the most stunning surprise ending since Scott Turow’s Presumed Innocent.

“Layne has star power in spades.” ~Diane Morasco RT Book Reviews for The Good Daughter
When reality is a web of lies and the truth endangers all you hold dear . . .Trust No One.
Drafted into the nebulous underworld of a secret agent right out of college, MJ Thornberg survived betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of her trusted partner. Instead of returning to the deadly realm of espionage, she chose to retire to a small Texas town and work as a mechanic while raising her soon-to-be-adopted baby daughter.
Ben Walker is a man with his own secrets. An agent with MJ’s former employer, Vista Security, Ben is clawing his way out of a downward spiral from a job gone wrong when Vista sends him after MJ, with orders to use the threat of halting her baby’s adoption to ensure her cooperation.
Furious and trusting no one, MJ intends on working the job solo until a sniper’s bullet alters her plans. With no choice but to work with Ben, MJ must confront ghosts from her past, discover truths of her present, and trust that the future she deserves is in her hands to create.
“Who you working for, Keith?”
“No need for you to know,” the man behind her said. He poked his revolver into her back. “You’re gonna be dead.”
She ignored him and focused on Keith. “How much money? Who’s the target?”
“Stalling, MJ? Afraid to die?”
“I knew the risks going in. So did you. But what about the innocent people who’ll die if you sell that information?”
“Sorry, baby, but I don’t have time to debate philosophy.” The sound of a distant engine made Keith pause and tilt his head to listen. “That would be the extraction team,” he said.
MJ tightened every muscle, ready to spring. It well could be his team, but it could as easily be hers. Even if she wasn’t in position for the original pick-up, she’d sewed a small tracking device in that backpack.
“No time for long good-byes.” He raised the gun.
Now or never.
