PAYBACK – NEW ALTERNATIVE HISTORY NOVEL
BY MICHAEL FITZGERALD PUBLISHED BY MOONSHINE COVE
Payback is great for alternative history fans as well as crime enthusiasts and those interested in World War Two.
It’s a novel filled with disaster and possibility that changes the course of world history.
What if Hitler had been assassinated before World War Two? Who would fill the power vacuum? Who would take over in Germany? How would Mussolini react?
Payback is a fast-paced novel involving two assassins, the gangster Bugsy Siegel and an undercover FBI agent. They travel to Italy for Hitler’s state visit in 1938 to kill him, with additional help from the anti-fascist Mafia.
In the aftermath of the assassination chaos ensues as the Nazi leaders are unaware of the dramatic changes taking place in Germany during their absence. Mussolini makes new plans of his own in the light of the events.
Payback has been described as “one of the best ‘what if?’ novels since ‘Fatherland,”(Kim Kinrade, author of “Rockets of the Reich”) “a great read with an amazing plot that kept me always wanting more,” (David Avoura King, author of “Hitler Out of Time”) “strong characters and surprising twists and turns,” (Sandra Saidak, author of “From the Ashes”) “a first-rate thriller that keeps the heart racing to the very last page.” (James Thayer, author of “S-Day”).

U.S. President Isabel Aragon Tennyson embarks on a fearless crusade to rein in the financial industry and other rich and powerful forces in the U.S. and around the world. But she is up against a ruthless international conspiracy determined to destroy her first. The ensuing conflict results in assassination, impeachment and murder. The Latina President is not a true story. But it could be. Its themes and conflicts are as current as today’s headlines and newscasts. The story skims the surface between fiction and reality, told by an author who himself spent decades immersed in the tense and turbulent world of high stakes politics. The Latina President is suspenseful, topical, important.
Sixteen-year-old Joshua Allen was born with an extra chromosome—a genetic aberration known as Trisomy XXI, or Down Syndrome. When a serious accident leaves him in a coma at the hospital, Joshua receives a mysterious injection that endows him with supernatural powers. The transformed teen is linked to a string of bizarre, unexplained deaths that have the town’s sheriff and the coroner completely baffled. But when a ghastly creature from another planet lands on Earth and begins its hunt for Joshua—viciously slaughtering anyone in its path in order to complete its deadly mission—Joshua and his friends are thrown into a world of terror. What follows is a horrific life-and-death struggle with the seemingly-indestructible extraterrestrial being. The salvation of an entire race of aliens hangs in the balance…
Trisomy XXI is vivid, imaginative, and unputdownable. Resplendent with twists, turns, chills, thrills and a pulse-racer of a plot, Trisomy XXI will leave readers breathless. Richly-drawn characters, meticulous plotting, and a sensational storyline make for an intelligent, evocative, electrifying novel. An extraordinary new voice in the world of horror fiction, novelist G.A. Minton delivers a spinetingler of the highest order in his debut novel, Trisomy XXI.
TRISOMY XXI by G.A. Minton has been judged and named a Benjamin Franklin Digital Award SILVER HONOREE by the Independent Book Publishers Association (the IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the United States), describing the novel as “A very creative story. . .an interesting use of the human genetic syndrome. Seemingly, a way to help all Trisomy XXI humans.” TRISOMY XXI received this prestigious award based on exceptional content, design, and use of technology.
“Trisomy XXI is a fun, exciting science fiction adventure. The writing is spectacular, and author G.A. Minton has a great talent for describing his scenes and characters in vividly colorful detail. Minton’s ability to drive the story across the genres makes for decidedly entertaining reading. I highly recommend this book to teens and adults who are fans of adventurous science fiction!” – Paige Lovitt for Reader Views.
“The popular trend of adding science fiction elements to horror goes well beyond jumping through portals as is evident in G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI. Minton offers up a compelling, frightening, and surprisingly touching genre blend that both horror and sci-fi readers will enjoy.” – Becky Spratford for The Reader’s Shelf at Library Journal Reviews.
“I enjoyed Trisomy XXI by G.A. Minton and I hope to read more of his novels in the future as they portray a great writing style!” – Chris Kyle (sixteen-year-old book reviewer from READER VIEWS).
“Author G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI is a book with an exciting and unique premise that will keep readers turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. I definitely enjoyed Trisomy XXI. Author G.A. Minton has made a bold choice in choosing a young man with Down Syndrome as the protagonist of this book, and has done a great job at making him so much more than just a stereotype of someone with a disability. This read had action almost from the very beginning and will definitely be able to keep readers on the edge of their seats, even gasping with surprise at times. Any reader who enjoys a great work of horror should definitely grab Trisomy XXI. I am pleased to recommend this book, and will look for more from author G.A. Minton in the very near future!” – 5-STAR Review by Chris Fischer for Readers’ Favorite
“I absolutely loved this book and everything about it. G.A. Milton created a well-rounded small town full of the usual characters one would find in any small town USA. Little do they realize they are soon to be at ground zero for a series of bizarre events. The characters are believable and comfortable. The events are mind bending but flow logically through each twist and turn. I never saw what was coming next but enjoyed the ride!” – Goodreads 5-STAR Review

It was a time when the humans wanted to colonize Rawule or as they said “their moon.” Because of this, Toren S’rell, the totalitarian leader of Rawule, was faced with an interplanetary war between his people and the human race, or as he liked to say “the ones who put politics before the preservation of their world.” As the conflict raged on, Ellaconna River would rather die as a sociopathic killer than a victim and Seccoro Acea, the federal executioner put in charge of her sentence, was trying to cope with the loss of his wife and one week old child.
When quick wits and loyalty are put to the test
Mitnash and his AI companion Slate, coders and investigators of interplanetary fraud, are at work again in Timing, the sequel to Far from the Spaceports.
This time their travels take them from Jupiter to Mars, chasing a small-scale scam which seems a waste of their time. Then the case escalates dramatically into threats and extortion. Robin’s Rebels, a new player in the game, is determined to bring down the financial world, and Slate’s fellow AIs are the targets. Will Slate be the next victim?
The clues lead them back to the asteroid belt, and to their friends on the Scilly Isles. The next attack will be here, and Mitnash and Slate must put themselves in the line of fire. To solve the case, they need to team up with an old adversary – the only person this far from Earth who has the necessary skills to help them. But can they trust somebody who keeps their own agenda so well hidden?
I nominate this book because all the hard work that was put into the series should have some recognition.
This really was a page-turner! I started reading it at 10.00pm, made myself stop to sleep at 02.00am, then woke and finished it in an hour. That says it all. It’s creepy, disturbing, even scary: I kept trying to find a flaw in the narrator’s logic (how could she be so helpless?) but her tormentor’s ice-cold insanity pre-empted her every bid for freedom and outwitted her every time. A chilling, tension-filled read.
On September 11, 2001, Doug Laux was a freshman in college, on the path to becoming a doctor. But with the fall of the Twin Towers came a turning point in his life. After graduating he joined the Central Intelligence Agency, determined to get himself to Afghanistan and into the center of the action. Through persistence and hard work he was fast-tracked to a clandestine operations position overseas. Dropped into a remote region of Afghanistan, he received his baptism by fire. Frustrated by bureaucratic red tape, a widespread lack of knowledge of the local customs and culture and an attitude of complacency that hindered his ability to combat the local Taliban, Doug confounded his peers by dressing like a native and mastering the local dialect, making contact and building sources within several deadly terrorist networks. His new approach resulted in unprecedented successes, including uncovering the largest IED network in the world, responsible for killing hundreds of US soldiers. Meanwhile, Doug had to keep up false pretenses with his family, girlfriend and friends–nobody could know what he did for a living–and deal with the emotional turbulence of constantly living a lie. His double life was building to an explosive resolution, with repercussions that would have far reaching consequences.

Synopsis: Emerging criminal defense attorney Sam Young has always known he had a gift. Or a curse. He thinks of them as minor psychic abilities. When Sam is hired by an attractive young nun named Camille Paradisi, he agrees to help discover the identity of a serial killer in order to prevent Camille’s pastor from being exposed for not reporting the man after a confession – thereby allowing another murder to occur. While Sam’s psychic abilities increase as he investigates the case and gets closer to Camille, he realizes that the enigmatic nun is not revealing the complete truth.
Camille shares an old journal anonymously mailed to the church, which she believes may have been authored by the killer/confessor. The journal, which begins in Argentina in the 1940’s, purports to tell the life story of a man with mind control and other special powers who claims to be a descendant of the fallen angels cast out of heaven by God. As Sam learns more about the murders, the journal author, and Camille, he begins to realize the so called “Rosslyn Ripper” case may have ancient implications beyond his imagination.

Satin Island by Tom McCarthy
Meet U. – a talented and uneasy figure currently pimping his skills to an elite consultancy in contemporary London. His employers advise everyone from big businesses to governments, and, to this end, expect their ‘corporate anthropologist’ to help decode and manipulate the world around them – all the more so now that a giant, epoch-defining project is in the offing.
Instead, U. spends his days procrastinating, meandering through endless buffer-zones of information and becoming obsessed by the images with which the world bombards him on a daily basis: oil spills, African traffic jams, roller-blade processions, zombie parades. Is there, U. wonders, a secret logic holding all these images together – a codex that, once cracked, will unlock the master-meaning of our age? Might it have something to do with South Pacific Cargo Cults, or the dead parachutists in the news? Perhaps; perhaps not.
As U. oscillates between the visionary and the vague, brilliance and bullshit, Satin Island emerges, an impassioned and exquisite novel for our disjointed times.
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marion James
On 3 December 1976, just weeks before the general election and two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica Concert to ease political tensions, seven gunmen from West Kingston stormed his house with machine guns blazing. Marley survived and went on to perform at the free concert, but the next day he left the country, and didn’t return for two years. Not a lot was recorded about the fate of the seven gunmen, but much has been said, whispered and sung about in the streets of West Kingston, with information surfacing at odd times, only to sink into rumour and misinformation.
Inspired by this near-mythic event, A Brief History of Seven Killings takes the form of an imagined oral biography, told by ghosts, witnesses, killers, members of parliament, drug dealers, conmen, beauty queens, FBI and CIA agents, reporters, journalists, and even Keith Richards’ drug dealer. Marlon James’s bold undertaking traverses strange landscapes and shady characters, as motivations are examined – and questions asked – in this compelling novel of monumental scope and ambition.

Their lives are studied by Elizabeth, a young psychologist that plans the course of their lives, their escape from routine and compliance. The story travels from the wealthy to a poor village, from the mansion to the care home, from Italy to England and from New York to London. With a boom of diversity and deviant behaviour, the book tells a story of revenge in today’s London, or does it?
