#ThrowbackThursday – Author William F. Brown – Book Reviews

#ThrowbackThursday on It's Book Life blogRenee began the Throwback Thursday meme on her blog, It’s Book Talk to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books published over a year ago. Sounded like a good reason to join! My TT posts will not come from current ARCs or new releases. Means I’ll be going back over some of my oldies but goodies, my favorite authors, and some of my favorite stories from authors you might not have previously experienced. Hopefully, you’ll find either a story or author that interests you and you’ll check them out.

Winner Lose All by William F. BrownThis week I am highlighting William F. Brown, another terrific, prolific author who has produced the Bob Burke series (Burke’s War), an Eddie Barnett FBI Counter-Terror Thriller (Aim True, My Brothers), and Ed Scanlon Cold War Spy Thriller (Winner Lose All), all of which were reviewed on Goodreads and noted below, as well as the one featured first, The Undertaker: Pete and Sandy Murder Mystery. He has actually written nine suspense novels released as eBooks and five as audio books on Audible. Half were published by St. Martins, Beaufort Books, and Harlequin Gold Eagle as well as foreign editions. He consistently runs approximately 4.5 stars for any of his books sold on Amazon. His books run full-tilt and keep the suspense going–no dull moments!

After he witnesses and reports the murder, he discovers local police are less than interested and extremely skeptical of his being capable of seeing such an event from that vantage point. The one officer who believes his account may be able to lend some help, but otherwise Burke is at a loss to decipher those who are corrupt from those he can trust.
