‘‘Thursday at Noon’, last year’s new fiction release on Kindle Prime and Kindle Select, was originally published as a Joan Kahn Imprint murder mystery by St. Martin’s Press in hardback, by Harlequin’s Gold Eagle in paperback, and in various foreign editions. It already has 71 Amazon reviews, 59% of which are Five Star, an average of 4.5. This top fiction book is a murder mystery and thriller novel you can’t put down, and has been selected for a Stipend Award by Audible, the Amazon and I-Tunes audio book subsidiary, for production of the Audio Book edition. I’m sure those who read my other top fiction novels will enjoy it. It was reviewed favorably in the New Yorker and in many other major publications in the US. Set in Egypt in 1962, this thriller novel focuses on Richard Thomson, a burned-out CIA Agent. He is already having a very bad day when someone leaves a corpse lying on the rear steps of his hotel. Its head has been lopped off like a ripe melon and has been posed so it could look back down at its own body. The body belongs to Mahmoud Yussuf, a fat, petty thief who tried to sell Thomson photographs of a long-abandoned RAF base in the Egyptian desert. What the photos have to do with a dead Israeli Mossad agent, Nazi rocket scientists, the fanatical Moslem Brotherhood, and two missing Egyptian tank regiments could start the next Arab-Israeli War or stop it. Like ‘Night of the Generals’, this espionage and military thriller novel is a murder mystery wrapped inside an international crisis and a tense political thriller.
As with my other suspense thriller novels, it is Kindle 5-Star fiction novel available exclusively on Kindle Select and Kindle Prime. The First Chapter and Reviews of all of these top fiction books and action adventure novels can be found at their book tabs. The cover was designed by Todd Hebertson a graphic designer and cover artist in Salt Lake City. I think both the cover and the political thriller are among my best. You can find details and links to these fiction novels elsewhere on this site.
My next two thriller novels, both of which I am presently working on, are Undertaker Two, an action adventure romance with the return of everyone’s favorite Pete and Sandy, and a new domestic murder mystery, Through the Glass Darkly.
