“If the Sergeant doesn’t stop those trains, D-Day goes down the drain!”
The speaker was Colonel Fairbairn, special OSS advisor to General Omar Bradley, at a tense meeting of SHAEF only days before the planned Normandy invasion. Thus began yet another do-or-die mission of the man called The Sergeant – C. J. Mahoney (Code Name: Parrot), a big, brawling career G.I. Mahoney was an almost perfect killing machine with an incredible knack for languages … and the Army’s heavyweight champion foul-up.
His assignment was to stop the personnel and supply trains crafty General Erwin Rommel had lined up to checkmate the assault he knew would come on Omaha Beach. His first try failed when a key bridge wouldn’t blow. Now, with Gestapo Colonel Richter on his trail, it’s last-chance time as Mahoney and a handful of maquis steal an explosives-laden train and head for a fateful rendezvous in a tunnel of death!

Along with continuing our established series, October sees the launch of the wartime series THE SERGEANT by Len Levinson (see other posts on the books.
Sadly, October sees the end of David Stuart Davies' Sherlock Holmes series but does end on a high note. BRAND, CROW, FARGO, REAPER and The STORM Family marches on.
Thanks for your support. Mike

When we first took on the series we spoke with Frederick Nolan (Frederick H Christian) on several things. Firstly, the cover: We wanted to get a modern take on the old classic style pulp western. Fred agreed: "I rather like the "Ranch Romances" feel of your Sudden covers -- they bring back memories of the original Newnes covers for the Oliver Strange titles, which were always 1930-ish, and remained unaltered even into the 1960s."
Why am I bringing this up? Well, there have been a few comments in the feedback area ranging from 5 star:
"written in the original style of Oliver Strange, good story line and a moralistic outcome to the story."
to 1 star:
"Full of spelling and grammar mistakes. Very poorly edited. A five year old could have done better. Always loved sudden books but this one could have put off someone new to them."
We carefully go through each manuscript as if it was an original script. Part of the editing includes changing the UK spelling to American and keeping words such as "yu" rather than "you"; "shore" for "sure" etc. etc. So, perhaps it is the use of the vernacular, in the style of Oliver Strange, which looks somehow "mistaken" to today's modern readers?
Our aim is to do right by our authors and readers. We have no intention of knowingly publishing a book that is less than the best we are capable of.
