Morton Morelli, the author of “Sardine Packing”, a complex relationship thriller that he launched in December 2015. It is available now on Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
“Sardine Packing” is set in World War II. “Sardine Packing” is the deplorable term the Nazi's gave to the mass graves where they shot Jews, to fall like Sardines in a can. The camp is the first death camp where Jews are to be transported and then executed. Himmler, who had the idea in the first place, visits the camp to meet Hitler to put his final solution in practice.
Morton set out to show a beautiful place involved in the War. Old footage of the War always looks bleak, but Europe was still very beautiful. He set the scene to highlight this as he liked the contrast between the beauty and the horror of war. He also showed the financial impact of the proposed slaughter of some 5 million Jews.
Hans is a good guy, and soon comes to realize that people are the same no matter what creed they may be. A relationship forms with him, and Sophie, and he intends to help her escape.
Currently working on “Sardine Packing 2”, the sequel, Morton has givien it a working title of “The Gathering”. In due course he will be posting sample chapters on his website. Stay in touch.

What if our very survival rested in the hands of one man? A dead one…
Iraq, 2003: Navy SEAL Austin McCord meets with his own end when he takes a lethal bullet. A single heartbeat, and all is lost. But after more than a decade Austin awakens with no sign of an injury; not even a scar. Held in a subterranean medical facility in present-day London, Austin discovers no explanation for the death he so clearly remembers. There are only two things present for him to see: a picture of his twin sister sitting on a table beside his bed, and a body—absent its head—lying in a pool of blood on the floor.
Fearing for his sister’s safety, Austin pushes his questions and confusion aside and races to find Angelique. Unfortunately, a killer is heading in the exact same direction as the heroic SEAL—an infamous murderer suspected to be dead long ago, who has miraculously survived to continue his rampage.
As Austin attempts to save his sister, a web of lies, cover-ups, and a historical past unveils itself. He soon discovers that he and his loved ones are major targets in a far greater war that began long ago at the hands of a secret society known as the Morvicti.
In autumn of 1943, a lone allied soldier parachutes into Greece. His stated goal: to build an airstrip for the British. Brendon O'Malley is an Irishman, and he soon discovers that fighting the Nazis is not the same as embracing the British, who have seriously misled him about his mission.
