    A SUSPENSEFUL WHAT-MIGHT-BEEN SCENARIO

    Drawing upon his rich imagination as well as the stories related to him by his father and five uncles, all of whom served in World War II, Ross debuts with a suspenseful what-might-have-been scenario. In the days before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor American Tom Wall spends his days in a British hospital where he's recovering from wounds and shell shock. What he does know with certainty is that his brother, Earl, is a traitor who turned in information about Tom's unit in Crete to the Nazis. His one desire is to find Earl. Obviously, he needs to be out of the hospital to do this and his only way of release is to agree to impersonate Earl and find out from Nazi spy, Sondegger, exactly what Sondegger knows about the upcoming Japanese attack and how this information will be sent to the Germans. Sondegger is not a pushover and soon Tom and Sondegger are matching more than wits. Stage, television and screen actor Holter Graham offers an exemplary reading of this tale of espionage, as he details the days, the hours prior to the horrendous assault on Pearl Harbor. - Gail Cooke

    rousing World War II espionage thriller

    On December 1, 1941, American Thomas Wall becomes alert in a London asylum though he aches all over. He is recovering from severe wounds received in battle on Crete where his Canadian unit was slaughtered due to a betrayal. Thomas¿s diplomatic brother, Earl, sold his troops out to the Nazis. When Thomas recovers fully, he plans to confront and probably kill his sibling. British M15 intelligence officers coax Thomas to work with them masquerading as his brother in order to gain information from captured German spy Sondegger and protect the Twenty Committee of double agents. Sondegger gives him clues to microfilm that contain Japanese information on a pending attack of American Pacific bases. Needing help, Thomas turns to his former lover and now Earl's British Intel wife, Harriet, but he quickly wonders if that was an error as he struggles with who is a friend and who is a foe. --- DOUBLE CROSS BLIND is a rousing World War II espionage thriller that sub-genre fans will gain immense pleasure from. Ironically though the reader knows the big picture event that will happen in less than a week, the beleaguered hero tries to obtain the information to prevent or at least prepare for the attack. Though the secondary characters come out of stereotypical espionage 101, Joel N. Ross provides an exhilarating tense thriller that grips the audience due to its reluctant champion, a soldier forced into the cold. --- Harriet Klausner
