Dead Ringer 3 and Windfall

by F. Eugene Barber

Dead Ringer 3 and Windfall

This is a Dual Novel: Dead Ringer 3 is a continuation of Dead Ringer 2 but with some new characters added. They are actively engaged in the War Against Drugs in Central America. One of the "new hires" is under Witness Protection and decides that Central America would be a better place to hide than where she has been for the last year in the States. She is teamed with a young man from California who was wounded in Iraq and put "out to pasture." They work together in the Jungles of Colombia and Nicaragua--and fall in love.

The second novel WINDFALL is centered about a young man who was wounded in the Iraqi war and returns to his home town and works as a PI. He is working the other end of the War on Drugs in the central valley of California. He meets a girl during one of his investigations and they find something in common--this leads to love. They eventually work on the same team and there is an odd turn of events at the end that links the Dual Novels together.

Lt. Jack Taylor: An American Hero

by F. Eugene Barber
Lt. Jack Taylor: An American Hero

The story is based on a true story. I worked with Lt. Taylor's cousin on the story line. Jack Taylor joined the ROTC while in college--he became a dentist after graduation and when WW II started he asked to be called up. He went into the OSS (the forrunner of the CIA) and served in Europe, parachuting behind enemy lines and gathering information about German and Italian troop movements and aircraft count. He was captured by the NAZIs towards the end of the war and was placed in Mauthausen Concentration Camp. He was set free by an Army Staff Sergeant just two days before he was due to be shot. This story takes the reader along with Lt. Tayler behind enemy lines. At times you feel as if you were part of his team.

Not Necessarily Murder

by F. Eugene Barber
Not Necessarily Murder

The bodies of Barbara Hansen and Steve Lytle were discovered in an upscale apartment in New York City by the night security officer of the large complex. A long, sharp object and been used – they had died instantly. Alvin Hansen used his key card and unlocked the front door, entered the bedroom, and blacked out. His wounds inflicted when the terrorists attacked the aircraft carrier still bothered him. Particularly the head wound. The doctors at Bethesda insisted upon seeing him every three months. He awakened and found himself on the floor – he saw the two bodies. Al fled to the West, hiding out on his family's old ranch in Arizona. The police searched to no avail.

The story is suspenseful, with a surprising end – a must read for both murder mystery and modern western fans – an unusual combination of both genres.

by F. Eugene Barber
Escape Along the Oregon Trail

Escape Along the Oregon Trail does two things:

Anna is only eight years old when a Cheyenne warrior abducts her. She spends the next ten years growing up and learning the ways of the tribe. Faced with a marriage she doesn't want, she makes her escape and begins an odyssey of her own while being pursued by her erstwhile husband. She eventually makes her way back to the pioneer world, where she faces the challenge of once more learning a new culture and living her life . . . with its many exciting twists and turns.

The details of daily life, thoroughly and painstakingly researched, are so vivid they almost become a character by themselves, adding a fascinating texture to the story. This book is a "must read" for anybody who knows about, or is interested in, Western American life in the 19th century.
