Widow of Calcutta
by Jack Allen

The author of Change of Heart, An Innocent Among Them and Breathe of the Flesh brings you the newest Josh McGowan adventure.  A pirate treasure lost in the Caribbean more than 300 years ago becomes the focal point of a contest between a South American drug lord and the wife of the research scientist who uncovered its location.

The treasure is not a chest of jewels and coins but a sacred cross forged of gold and bearing a giant ruby that legend says holds spiritual powers.  For the drug lord it is a link to his past, but for the scientist’s wife the value the cross holds is the last hope she has to save her niece.

Josh is attracted to this fearless, beautiful woman but finds himself drawn into her personal competition with the drug lord to find the cross first.  Every day that passes brings her closer to losing her niece.  Josh is the only one who can find the cross and save the girl’s life, unless he is killed first.

The Viper's Son
by Sandy Cohen

The Viper’s Son is a tale of intrigue, mystery, greed, murder, betrayal, revenge, and, ultimately, redemption weaving through two generations and two continents.  It begins in Germany, in the closing days of  World War II along the coast of Florida, when the Nazi high command stepped up their real-life secret mission of sabotage along the eastern shores of Florida burying explosives on the beaches, delivered by the same U-boats that had been doing so much devastation to American shipping throughout the war.  But this secret mission is something else as well, something even more sinister and cynical, something the Nazi high command has trained their special forces for years to prepare for the inevitable defeat of the Reich and their ultimate revenge.

Combine these elements with real-life modern international land fraud and betrayal of the most sacred trusts of all, and the fuse is lit.  Are such men and women still out there and still as dangerous?  When wealth beyond imagining and local political power that borders on tyranny clash, these things can and have happened here in America, and will again when sociopaths without conscious grasp for them.

Breathe of the Flesh
by Jack Allen

It’s 1942, the middle of WWII. New York City is filthy with German spies. But the Abwher, the intelligence branch of the Nazi military, has a special mission for its most lethal and dangerous spy, and it has nothing to do with his passion for girls.

Breathe of the Flesh is a WWII period espionage novel about FBI agent Thomas Leopard’s tragic descent into failure and loss. He is drinking and suicidal, selfish, loathsome and hateful. And he has a killer loose in his city, a killer who favors innocent teenage girls. This killer is the German spy "Der Tiger", a man who has a taste for fresh blood in his coffee. He has been dormant up to that point of the war, when he comes up with his own plan to go to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington D.C. and steal the printing plates for U.S. currency. When he learns how closely he has been stalked and nearly caught by Leopard, Leopard’s own daughter becomes Der Tiger’s next target.

An Innocent Among Them
by Jack Allen

The new Josh McGowan novel by the author of Change of Heart.

Deception and coercion are the tools of a small terrorist cell operating in a Midwest college town.  Their target is Jen Dvorak, a pre-med student with a weakness that makes her vulnerable.  Her heart has been wounded by betrayal.

Now she has been turned into a weapon for the terrorists.  She is caught in the middle, between an act of terror that could tear the Middle East apart, and the selfless heroism of the man who would throw away everything to stop a holocaust.

Josh McGowan’s only weapon is a courage that drives him to disobey orders to protect her, even if the cost is his own life.  But is Jen really the innocent one to come out of it all?

Change of Heart
by Jack Allen

As an officer in an obscure, under-funded branch of U.S. Navy Intelligence, Josh McGowan is given the leftover jobs, the scraps, the lousy missions that no one else wants.

In Change of Heart, the CIA has busted Valeria, a former KGB informer, out of a Russian prison, and Josh is given the job to escort her from the east coast of Russia back to the United States.  The plan is that she will be debriefed by the CIA at the request of Colonel Mironov, a former Soviet Army officer who has agreed to share his secrets on the condition that she is set free.

Mironov has his own plans, and once he has Valeria in his hands, he’s going to use her as evidence of the ineffectiveness of the Democratic state in Russi, and usher the Soviets back to power by his own hand.

Valeria, though, has her own ideas, and they do not involve Josh, the CIA, or Colonel Mironov.  All she wants is to be back with the man she loves, and if she has to kill Josh or anyone who stands in her way, she will not hesitate.

Caught in the middle of a bad mission that gets worse at every step, Josh must decide if he’s falling in love with Valeria, or if he has to kill her himself.
