Today we’re excited to feature a guest post from Ian Sansom, author of The Norfolk Mystery.
You’ll probably want to know some background and stuff, yes? Who I am, where I’m from. That sort of thing?
Well, it’s just the usual. Birth. School. Work. And … Well. Not yet. Not quite.
Where am I from? By county, and by country: out of London, through Essex, into Gloucestershire, Cambridgeshire, County Antrim, France, Switzerland, back to London, Oxfordshire, back to London, County Down, Warwickshire. So, in summary: England-Ireland-France-Switzerland-England-Ireland-England. Does that help?

Next Friday, November 22, 2013, marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was a defining moment in our nation’s history and a day that will be much discussed over the next two weeks on television, in newspapers and across dinner tables everywhere.
Killing Kennedy, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, has spent a lot of time since its release last year on the New York Times Bestseller List and it is this week’s True Tuesday Showcase.

In 1959, in an underground laboratory in a remote region of West Virginia, a secret government experiment went terribly awry. Half a dozen scientists mysteriously disappeared, and all subsequent efforts to rescue them failed. In desperation, President Eisenhower ordered the lab sealed shut and all records of its existence destroyed. Now, fifty-four years later, something from the lab has emerged.
When mysterious events begin occurring along the New River Valley in West Virginia, government agents Mike Califano and Ana Thorne are sent to investigate. What they discover will shake the foundations of science and religion and put both agents in the crosshairs of a deadly, worldwide conspiracy.
