SHOUT OUT SATURDAY: JEFFREY PERREN


We've started, yes...a new post! We are calling this Shout Out Saturday simply because we are here to shout out books from the rooftops, and bring them directly to your fingertips to enjoy. We hope you will join us in finding some authors that you might not have experienced otherwise! 

Today we bring you --- The works of Jeffrey Perren! Enjoy! 


HOW FAR WILL ONE MAN GO FOR LOVE AND FREEDOM?

Rebellious engineer Breutier Armande is drafted into the Grande ArmeƩ on the eve of Napoleon's 1812 Russian war campaign. On a spying mission to St. Petersburg he meets Kaarina, daughter of the counselor to Tsar Alexander I.

The pair soon fall in love — but Kaarina is betrothed to Agripin, a brooding Cossack and a favorite of the Tsar. When she refuses him, Agripin kidnaps her, sowing a showdown to the death between the two young men.

Risking a firing squad, Breutier deserts Napoleon's army during the war. Dodging the vengeance of the world's most powerful rulers catapults him onto a perilous quest to hunt down his greatest enemy.

Interweaving the characters' personal dramas with the battles in Europe forms the core of the story. The conflict peaks at the moment when, for the first time in 400 years, foreign armies invaded France, leaving behind Cossacks in Paris.

HOW DO YOU INVESTIGATE YOUR OWN MURDER?

Professor Thomas Payne didn't intend to wind up dead on his caving vacationand in truth he wasn't the victim. 

But proving his identity to the police becomes tricky after they pull his passport off the lookalike body.

Things go from bogus to baffling when a mysterious phone call at the crime scene leads to the arrest of the young scientist. His fate seems sealed when the victim's fingerprints match the professor's work visa.

Intervention by the police inspector's daughter frees Thomas to search for clues to prove his innocence. So, it's off around the UK with sculptress Terri, one jump ahead of the authorities -- and running from his estranged sociopathic father. One slip and claustrophobia will be the least of their problems.

Thomas' journey soon becomes as much about healing his troubled past as recovering his present self. Along the way, he'll battle betrayals by his envious staff, romance the rebellious artist, and suffer harrowing misadventures at historic sites in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Travel -- even to find yourself -- was never so perilous.
