YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
I should've been more scared, but the truth was I had never felt more ready and raring to go.
Liberated: A Novel of Germany, 1945 by Steve Anderson. Steve has been on a role lately. His novel, Under False Flags also came out in 2014. And his translation of a German thriller, Mark of Cain by Marcus Hünnebeck, is available now in a Kindle edition, soon to be released in paperback.
Liberated is a sequel of sorts to Anderson's earlier WWII novel, The Losing Role, which I reviewed here. Harry Kaspar, the hero in this book, is the older brother of the main character of the earlier book, Max Kaspar. Steve is already working on other books involving the Kaspar brothers.
