1941 - On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, Nazi Germany is developing a new weapon of unprecedented power, one that will give them ultimate victory over all the nations of the world. But the war turns against them before it is completed, and a conspiracy forms to preserve the weapon and carry on the research.
1999 - At the dawn of a new century, Alex Pyke, a self-styled bachelor entrepreneur, wants only the American Dream of a bigger house and a fatter bank account. But a business opportunity lures him back to Germany, the country he left as an orphan of five during the height of the Cold War. Upon his arrival, he is swept up in a deadly adventure involving an aging industrialist and his brilliant, beautiful niece. Even as Alex unravels the mysteries of his own family’s history, he makes a discovery that will change the direction of his life, and maybe the whole world beyond.

By Right of Blood
William Fylbrigge is ill prepared to claim what is his, by right of blood, and his place among the powerful clan he has been born into. His older brother Thomas doesn't want to share what he thinks is rightfully his, secretly arranging to have the young lad killed in a convenient accident; William could lose everything, including his life.
Sean Wilbrun, the son of a common groomsman, transcends the barriers of his class and station when he is elevated to the esteemed ranks of guard for Lord Edward, Duke of Stonehaven. His first assignment, however, is not to wield a sword to protect his duke, but instead to attend to the newly arrived foster son.
William and Sean soon form an unlikely duo and a lasting bond as together they face Thomas' accusations of murder and treason..

Welcome to the second edition of LET's Write with host Fran Lewis. Today best selling author and head writer of Murder She Wrote, Tom Sawyer will be joining this panel of distinquished authors which includes best selling author Alan Topol and award winning author Stuart Yates.
Today's discussion will center around creating different settings when writing historical fiction or a murder mystery. How important is the setting to the storyline and how does their main character adjust to the different changes in setting that often occur throughout a book. If their main character could pick anywhere in the world they would like to go in the next book, what would it be and why? How do these authors keep it interesting for readers? What is the importance of mood and dialogue and how do you keep it flowing and not stilted. These topics and more will be discussed when you join Fran Lewis, your host and these distinquished authors of Let's Write.
