My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

“A Non-Stop Thriller”

This is the sequel to “Dead Anyway”, the novel that introduced Arthur Cathcart. In the previous novel, his wife had been murdered, and Arthur shot in the head and left for dead. His sister, a doctor, nursed him back to health, but left him dead on records so the killers would not return for him. In that story, he tracked the killers down, but being a person who hates leaving questions unanswered, in “Cries of The Lost” he goes searching for the reason his wife was murdered. With him now is Natsumi Fitzgerald. They travel from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and finally back to the US, every step of the way being chased by two opposing forces, as well as the F.B.I. The only clue is a coded message left on a Flash Drive in a safety deposit box in Grand Cayman.

This is a non-stop thriller from the first page to the last, filled with danger and death. Coming together at the end with assistance from gangsters before Cathcart unravels the mystery.
