Book Description

Winner Lose All by William F. Brown

The Indie Book of the Day for 4th of October, 2013!

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

A historical suspense thriller set in the closing months of WWII, as one war 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 all know that the future belongs to whomever can grab the new rockets, jet fighters, long-range bombers, synthetic fuels and other ‘wonder weapons’ that Hitler unleashed upon them. Those will shape the balance of world power for decades to come. It is also the story of the torrid but impossible romance between Ed Scanlon, a brilliant, young, American OSS agent and Hanni Steiner, the gritty, street-smart leader of the communist resistance cell in Leipzig. They now find themselves on opposite ends of an international tug of war over the plans for Germany’s revolutionary Me-262 jet fighter and the scientists who designed and built it. To succeed, they 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. The stakes in this military political thriller could not be higher. Once-bitter enemies are tomorrow’s allies, old friends cannot to be trusted, and lies, double-dealing, action and adventure, spy versus spy, and treachery are the norm. Driven by the uncompromising dictates of historical characters such as Josef Stalin, Lavrenti Beria, Allen Dulles, Heinrich Himmler, and Winston Churchill, it is succeed or die, and the winner will indeed lose all. Combining the best of action romance and World War II historical fiction, this fast-paced espionage spy thriller will resonate.

Read Sample

I live in Ohio.  As a Vice President of the real estate subsidiary of a Fortune 500 corporation, I traveled widely in the US and abroad.   A native of Chicago, I earned a BA in History and Russian Area Studies and a Master of Urban Planning degree from the  University of Illinois.  (Go Illini!)  I’ve been active in politics (I had the stupidity to run and the misfortune to win a -year seat on a County Board of Supervisors) (more hard time than you’d get for armed robbery, car theft, or embezzlement in most states!) and active in numerous civic organizations.  I served in the US Army and was a company commander and drug counselor.  (The only two places in the country that teach leadership and organizational management are the Boy Scouts and the Army)   When I’m not writing, I like to play golf (usually poorly) paint landscapes in oil or acrylics and running 5Ks.  (slower every year).

My wife and I have traveled widely in Russia, Germany, the Caribbean, England, Ireland, Scotland, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Spain and Portugal, Holland, Egypt, and Israel.
