Signed by Author on Title Page. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. It is a hoarse whisper over a crackling cell phone--Angel--then the connection is lost. But Angel Veronchek is convinced that the voice belongs to his mysterious and beautiful new neighbor, Angela--and that she is terrified for her life. So begins Angels dangerous and desperate quest to uncover what happened to Angela, a woman he loves and has become obsessed with, but about whom he knows nearly nothing.

Angel has his secrets, too. The son of one of Hollywoods most powerful producers, Angel has renounced a world of wealth and glamour to live a lonely existence in the seedy parts of Los Angeles with an unfinished screenplay, a ready supply of drugs, and Blade Runner looping constantly on his television.

The exotic Angela acts as kindling for Angels static existence. It is her arrival, and her eerie disappearance, that knocks his solitary, reclusive life off-balance, and plunges him into the sinister world of Los Angeles nights, a world of secrets that arent meant to be told, and people who arent meant to be found. ; 1.4 x 9.3 x 6.3 Inches; 352 pages; p; Signed by Author

The first major call for a “Sturmartillerie” as a mobile and armored infantry support gun was in 1935 in a memorandum from Erich von Manstein, back then, when he was still a Colonel. (Wettstein, Adrian: Sturmartillerie, S. 3) During combat it became obvious that the combat effectiveness of infantry units was increased by a large degree due to the use of the assault gun units. Due to the high amount of training, firepower and mobility. It should be noted that the assault guns were part of artillery branch, thus they were accustomed to supporting infantry from the get go.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 52 pages

Signed by Author on Title Page. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. When former NYPD detective Joe Serpe hit bottom, he just kept on going. Having lost his career to charges of corruption, his family to divorce, his partner to suicide, and his fireman brother to the tragedy of 9/11, Serpe's world is nearly empty but for his cat, Mulligan. Living in a basement apartment in a blue collar town on Long Island, Joe spends his days filling tanks with home heating oil and his nights filling his belly with vodka. But when a young retarded man who worked for Joe's oil company is cruelly murdered, Joe Serpe rediscovers purpose and grasps for a last chance at redemption. Along with his former Internal Affairs Bureau nemesis, Bob Healy, and Marla Stein, a brave and beautiful, group home psychologist, Joe wades into the world of street gangs, anti-immigration organizations, and the Red Mafia.Hose Monkey is a rough and tumble ride through a violent, often cruel world, a world where it's hard to tell the bad guys from the good guys without a scorecard. It is a world of murder and extortion, but one in which an innocent Down Syndrome girl may hold the key that unlocks the mystery. At the same time, Hose Monkey is a story of salvation and forgiveness, a tale of justice done. May have dust spotting on top edge from shelf storage over time.; 1.3 x 8.4 x 5.8 Inches; 2992 pages; Signed by Author
