Winner Lose All by William F. Brown
As WW II grinds to an end in the rubble of Nazi Germany, all eyes turn to the next ‘cold’ one. The Americans, the Russians, and the British know the future belongs to whomever can grab Hitler’s new rockets, jet fighters, and ‘wonder weapons,’ because they will shape the balance of world power for decades to come. Old enemies are tomorrow’s allies, old friends can no longer be trusted, and lies and double-dealing are the norm in this spy vs spy thriller. Caught in the cross-fire is the torrid but impossible romance between Ed Scanlon, a brilliant American OSS agent and Hanni Steiner, the gritty, street-smart leader of the communist resistance cell in Leipzig. They find themselves on opposite ends of a tug of war over the plans for Germany’s revolutionary Me-262 jet fighter that is now sweeping the skies of American B-17s. To succeed, Ed and Hanni must not only outwit each other, they must stay one-step ahead of Otto Dietrich, the sadistic Gestapo Chief of Leipzig, who has plans of his own for the jet fighter plans, and Scanlon’s perfidious British handlers who suddenly have an agenda of their own. The stakes could not be higher. Driven by the uncompromising dictates of Josef Stalin, Lavrenti Beria, Allen Dulles, Heinrich Himmler, and Winston Churchill, they must succeed or die, and the winner will indeed lose all. Combining the best of World War II historical fiction, action adventure, and romance, this fast-paced spy thriller will resonate.

Against the Grain by Phil M. Williams
A tyrannical high school principal.
A young anarchist with nothing left to lose.
One way or another, this place is goin’ down.
Matt Moyer is an orphaned teen growing up on a primitive farm in the Pennsylvania coal region. He’s homeschooled by his eccentric and philosophical great-uncle, who’s a stickler for logic, reason, and intellectual honesty. Despite his uncle’s reverence for veracity, inconsistencies arise regarding the old man’s shady past and the teen’s parents.
Through a harrowing sequence of events, Matt is forced to attend a public school. The feral teen finds it difficult to cope with the hypocrisy, propaganda, and misinformation that adults and children so readily accept. Faced with the possibility of expulsion, arrest, and ostracism, he must make a choice. Will he choose the easy lie or the hard truth?
