Farquhar McHarg Author- PISTOLEROS!: THE CHRONICLES OF FARQUHAR MCHARG VOLUME I: 1918

PISTOLEROS!: THE CHRONICLES OF FARQUHAR MCHARG  VOLUME I: 1918

by Farquhar McHarg

“Written with tremendous brio, this is a passionate and gripping tale of an idealist’s coming of age.  McHarg’s gripping narrative convincingly taps the rich historical seams of intrique, protest, and conflict of an age in which many of the streets of Barcelona became stained with blood.”- Chris Ealham, author of CLASS, CULTURE AND CONFLICT IN BARCELONA 1898-1937

Barcelona, 1976: Hired gunmen brutally murder a lifelong friend and fellow anarchist, forcing Farquhar McHarg into a race to document an epic history before he too can be silenced.  The first volume of his memoirs finds him a Glasgow boy, dropped by chance in Barcelona’s revolutionary underworld at the tail end of the great imperialist war of 1914-1918, recruited by Spanish anarchist to act as a go-between with Britain’s Secret Service Bureau.  Mcharg tells of a corrupt and brutal Spanish regime, bent on bringing a rebellious working class back under its heel, and the generous and recklessly idealistic men and women who struggled to transform it after rejecting traditional party politics.

PISTOLEROS! is a thrilling tale of intrique and romance, and a sweeping inside view of the saboteurs and spies, the capitalists and bold insurrectionaries of Spain’s bloody past.

Lisa Gardner Author- CATCH ME

CATCH ME

by Lisa Gardner

Mysterious Galaxy Book Review

“Detective D. D. Warren is just back from maternity leave and her first case is the murder of a pedophile that seems to be related to a similar crime that took place in her absence.  At the crime scene she discovers a note on her vehicle and notices a figure running away.  She give chase and runs down Charlaine Rosalind Carter Grant (aka Charlie) who denies writing the letter but informs D.D. that she visited the crime scene to see the detective in action.  It seems that Charlie knows that she will be murdered in four days, on January 23rd, and wants D.D. to promise to handle the investigation.  Charlie’s two best childhood friends have been murdered on that exact same day over the last two years and she is certain that she is next.  She has been preparing for this day for a year, learning to shoot and box to prepare herself for this ultimate showdown.  But the well-laid plan is interrupted with disturbing recollections of an abusive mother, vague memories of dead infant siblings and her apparent connection with the third slain pedophile in two days.  Will she be murdered or is she in fact a murderer?  The many secrets of the past unfold as the action never stops.” – bkh
