A Good American by Alex George

February 2012

I am often asked, “What have you read recently that you loved?” Last fall, after I finished A GOOD AMERICAN by Alex George, it was the book that I found myself talking about the most. As I read it months in advance of publication, I kept having to add a coda of “but it’s not in stores until February 2012.” Over the holiday, I asked the publisher for some extra advance reading copies and wrapped them up for family members and close friends --- and their responses upon reading it mirrored mine. They loved it.

This is the story of the Meisenheimer family, told by James, a third-generation American living in Beatrice, Missouri. It’s where his German grandparents --- Frederick and Jette --- found themselves after journeying across the turbulent Atlantic, fording the flood-swollen Mississippi, and being brought to a sudden halt by the broken water of the pregnant Jette.

In THE FALLEN ANGEL by Daniel Silva, Gabriel Allon is called on to investigate the death of a beautiful woman in Rome. He fights against police who have already ruled her death a suicide and the Vatican’s “don’t ask too many questions” rule to uncover the truth. But along the way, he must also penetrate a criminal smuggling network and encounter an old enemy plotting revenge that puts himself and those he holds dear on the razor’s edge of danger.
