BOOKS:

Mr. Ambassador–Joseph P. Kennedy and his Treacherous Ambassadorship to the United Kingdom 1938-1940. This is the story of the Kennedy patriarch’s rise to political power through his dedication to Franklin D. Roosevelt, and how he betrayed Roosevelt in the end.  It is the story of uneasy alliances; use, abuse, and misuse of power; Kennedy’s presidential ambitions, family allegiances, Nazi infiltration in high places, and war profiteering. It brings into question how and why Roosevelt blindly appointed Kennedy as ambassador; why Kennedy actively worked to defeat Britain; Kennedy’s intention to undermine Roosevelt in the U.S. elections of 1940 and 1944 and thereby influence the outcome of the war in Europe.

The Locked Room (a novel)– Written in the first person by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887 when he is facing the professional dilemma that would decide his future. Will he or won’t he continue as a medical doctor? His first Sherlock Holmes story has been delayed by some six months by his publisher, and he’s earning a living as a medical witness for an insurance company. Whilst in London for one such testimony, Doyle stumbles into a murder trial with a locked room at its heart. (First book of a trilogy).
