Black Fox One: A Gripping WW2 Story of Love, Resistance, and Courage (Project 613)

by Elyse Hoffman


A deadly mission to hunt down the resistance's top soldier will make SS Officer Jonas Amsel question everything he kills for...

Jonas Amsel and Avalina Keller, devoted Nazis and best friends, have a bright future in Hitler’s Third Reich. Ava, a talented gymnast, wants to serve Germany in the Olympics, and Jonas, who has loved Ava since they were children, wants nothing more than to marry her and start a family. When he is about to propose, however, Ava and her entire family vanish without a trace.

Jonas blames the Jews for Ava’s disappearance and throws himself into a career in the Nazi Party. He serves the Reich under the ruthless Chief of the Gestapo, Reinhard Heydrich. Jonas becomes particularly good at capturing members of the Black Foxes, an anti-Nazi resistance group, earning Heydrich’s respect and the moniker of “the Fox Hunter.”

Impressed by Jonas’ skills, Heydrich gives him his most difficult task yet: capture the elusive Black Fox One, the Black Foxes’ most deadly and mysterious operative. No Nazi who has pursued Black Fox One has returned alive, but Jonas is determined and confident. Capturing Black Fox One might bring him one step closer to finding Ava.

But while he is hunting Black Fox One, Jonas makes a shocking discovery, forcing him to make an agonizing decision. He must choose between his love for the Reich and his heart, torn between the lies he has been taught all his life and the new truth before him.

Black Fox One is a thrilling World War II story of lost love, bravery, and the hard road to redemption.
 

Reviewers Adore Black Fox One

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A terrific, fast paced story that will grab and hold your attention! The story is suspenseful and I could not put this book down! A great read. I highly recommend this book.”– NetGalley Reviewer

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Elyse did it again. This historical fiction was phenomenally written, heart-wrenching, and action-packed. You start out with a young Ava and Jonas and watch as their relationship blooms. There's confusion, separation, heartbreak, and an amazing redemption. Truly a wonderful story, I cannot wait to read more.”– Goodreads reviewer

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Hoffman delivers an incredible twist and Jonas uncovers a truth that tears apart his life and what he has always believed to be true. He is left with the dilemma of staying loyal to his country and the Nazis or being true to his heart and his love for Ava. Hoffman very cleverly shows through her characters that what we think we know and what we believe to be true can be subterfuge and that we need to be careful not to lose our ability to question and hold others to account. Much of the story could be applied to the world today. A fantastic read and a fantastic author.”– Goodreads reviewer

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The story was unique and a fascinating twist on WWII novels. I loved how both sides were represented…I then realized how perfectly I was set up for Jonas’ deep introspection into Jews and the powerful change that came over him. Well played.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “An engaging story of lost love and the long road of redemption.” – NetGalley Reviewer

Readers are touched by this historical novel:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This book will grab your heart, make a fist, and squeeze until there is nothing but a dried up husk left. You have to read it! No, seriously. There are so many feels going on here. The author lifts you up then smashes you down, over and over again and I guarantee you’ll ask for more.” – A Voracious Reader

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Author Elyse Hoffman tells a small-scale story about World War II that perfectly demonstrates the dehumanization of the Jewish community of that era and how young German men were brainwashed to commit mass genocide. The characters are complex people with inner conflicts and grey morals that make them relatable and thoroughly compelling to read. If you liked the hit Hollywood movie Jojo Rabbit, you'll love Fracture.” – Reader’s Favorite

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book was amazing. I loved how much depth the characters had, and appreciated the moments that broke the tension by making me laugh. Hoffman did an excellent job of bringing the whole story to life, and has a unique way of describing things that made this a delight to read. Highly recommend!” – Goodreads Reviewer

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "…watching Franz wrestle with his beliefs and question everything he had been told was difficult for me. I found myself egging him on hoping he’d realize the truth about the lies he’d been told...
Only the best books can pull your emotions in every direction. I laughed, I worried, I gasped in shock, felt connected, had butterflies, and felt an ache in my stomach. It has been a long time since a book did this to me. Do not deprive yourself of this book. The author truly wrote a beautiful book about brokenness, love, and loyalty. It was raw and intriguing…”

The Theory of Irv: An American Health Policy Detective Story

by Greg Vigdor


What matters more than your health? And the health care system that is supposed to keep you healthy or fix your medical care problems? Very little.


Imagine learning more about this major social issue- and its problems- through an entertaining public health detective mystery story. A compelling tale that begins with the threat of a pandemic and moves on to something far more sinister.

The Theory of Irv provides a suspenseful journey through not just the storyline of the book’s plot, but an overview of American health policy. How it came to be a hundred years ago. How it has adapted in the last several decades. Perhaps more importantly, how we can fix it so we can have better health and health care for all Americans into the future.

Learn about the defects in the American health care system that create problems for the people that rely on it, like you. Many believe it to be broken, in need of fundamental repair. Meanwhile, solutions offered up to this have become a political football game, rife with politics and divisive ideology, none of which seem to make things better.

Our heroes must confront a myriad of obstacles and threats to solve the fictitious tale. Along the way, they must also deal with America’s broken health care system and the defenders of its status quo, and they try to resolve this too.

The Theory of Irv also tells part of the story of the not-for-profit Washington Health Foundation. Formed in 1992, WHF (washhealthfoundation.org) has worked to improve health and health care, including major health reform. With this book, it announces its intent to make another run at this proposition. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to WHF, with the hope that the resolution of the fictional story of Irv can finally become reality.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
The reader is easily swept along by the excellent prose ... I would wholeheartedly recommend this novel to any reader" – Netgalley Reviewer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
Good Town is a heart wrenching story of how the Haupt family is torn apart be WWII and what they must do to survive. I am not ashamed to admit that I found the story very touching and had to reach for the tissues on many occasions especially in the last quarter of the book. Mary Louise Wells is a wonderful author who brings all the characters to life, so much that you feel you are there with them in the book. I can not wait to read Mary Louise Wells next books." – Netgalley Reviewer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
I chose to read this book, because for once the story of WW2, was told from the point of view, of a German family. I have read a lot of war fiction, and non fiction by Jewish, English, and American people, so this was a new, and interesting perspective for me. I found this book to be, both informative, and very well written." – Netgalley Reviewer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
gripping tale of a large family trying to survive WWII intact. You see how people can be made to do things that they normally wouldn't do, even things against their moral code, when their freedom is taken from them in small steps. With each threat and each submission, they lose a piece of themselves. A heartbreaking tale that follows a ... family through the nightmare of historical events- well written with authentic angst and emotion." – Netgalley Reviewer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "
An amazing heart stirring story of one family trying to survive a war and a regime they opposed with dignity and the aftermath as victims. Unlike other WWII stories, there isn’t romance against the odds or yet another story of survival in Auschwitz, but there is heart enough to make this one of the best. I hope there will be more stories about the Haupt family and how they put their lives back together." – Netgalley Reviewer

Without a doubt, the very first line... the very first paragraph... all the way to the last two words of the book will send shivers down your arms." – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Highly Recommended” award of excellence from The Historical Fiction Company


Northern New England, summer, 1688.
Salem started here.

A suspicious death. A rumor of war. Whispers of witchcraft.

Perched on the brink of disaster, Resolve Hammond and her mother, Deliverance, struggle to survive in their isolated coastal village. They're known as healers taught by the local tribes - and suspected of witchcraft by the local villagers.

Their precarious existence becomes even more chaotic when summoned to tend to a poisoned woman. As they uncover a web of dark secrets, rumors of war engulf the village, forcing the Hammonds to choose between loyalty to their native friends or the increasingly terrified settler community.

As Resolve is plagued by strange dreams, she questions everything she thought she knew - about her family, her closest friend, and even herself. If the truth comes to light, the repercussions will be felt far beyond the confines of this small settlement.

Based on meticulous research and inspired by the true story of the fear and suspicion that led to the Salem Witchcraft Trials, THE DEVIL'S GLOVE is a tale of betrayal, loyalty, and the power of secrets. Will Resolve be able to uncover the truth before the town tears itself apart, or will she become the next victim of the village's dark and mysterious past?

Operation Storm King: A Pulse-Pounding WWII Thriller

by Elliott Sumers


"A whale of a tale, well-told, with an impressive handling of the facts that makes the whole story move along smartly." – Thomas E. Ricks, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Fiasco and The Generals

Operation Storm King is an explosive alternative history about the death of President Franklin Roosevelt. It will take you on a heart-stopping journey, challenging your view of reality.

Historians tell us that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt died of a stroke in Warm Springs, Georgia. Operation Storm King tells of a shocking, yet entirely plausible alternative version, an audacious Nazi raid to kidnap FDR from West Point.

Starting in January 1945, "Operation Storm King" follows a small team of Nazi commandos as they penetrate New York Harbor, and sail up the Hudson River in the revolutionary Type XXI U-Boat. Their mission: kidnap the American President and force the United States into an alliance with Germany against Russia. When FDR’s heroic but ultimately suicidal actions foil the plot, Vice-President Truman covers up the kidnapping, and creates the myth of FDR's peaceful death to prevent public panic.

Seventy-five years later, Mai Zhao, a hard driving woman West Point cadet discovers the shattered U-Boat wreck in the Hudson River, and uncovers its shocking secrets. The U.S. national security apparatus goes on alert. Zhao’s unstoppable efforts to uncover the truth threatens to undermine the American public's faith in government. Washington mobilizes powerful political and legal forces to stop her.

With fierce battles and sacrifices, action-packed scenes, and well-crafted characters, "Operation Storm King" is a must-read for fans of explosive wartime adventures, gritty historical war fiction, and riveting alternative history epics. For fans of best-selling authors like Philip K. Dick, Robert Harris, or Tom Clancy and those looking for a detailed techno thriller, Operation Storm King is a book you won’t want to put down.

Follow the desperate mission, and decide for yourself what really happened!


Readers are captivated by Elliott Sumers' debut novel, Operation Storm King:

A first-rate alternate history! I will be adding Elliott Sumers to my watch list." – Netgalley Reviewer
