Aachen

Aachen is a self-published historical novel written by Gary Ludlam.  I admit that I love reading historical fiction and was drawn to this book by the cover notes that state, “The life of an 8th century peasant is, as they say, ‘nasty, brutish and short.’  Stephen of Orlans wants none of that.”  This quote describes the motivation and drive of the main character, Stephen, throughout much of the book.  Although Stephen is presented as a basically decent person, his desire to escape the life of a peasant clouds his judgment at several crucial junctures.  The confl...

The Doom Murders

The Doom Murders is a self-published novel written by Brian O’Hare.  A murder mystery, police drama, love story, and redemption story are all tightly packed into this easy to read and very fast-paced narrative.  Mr. O’Hare’s writing style is engaging while remaining casual.  He doesn’t waste the reader’s time by describing every minute detail of each scene, but he puts enough of a picture in the reader’s mind to make the reader care about the detectives who are trying to understand the seemingly nonsensical murders.  The Doom Murders by Brian O&rs...
