Milt Gross Book Review: "The Judge's Wife is Missing" by the late Dale German
Feb 23, 2014
The Judge's Wife is Missing is so well-written I thought the publisher was a "traditional" publisher, that is the publisher pays the writer for the manuscript and publishes it. The late author, Dale German, worked for the Atomic Energy Commission and Boeing Aircraft before his retirement. He died in 1999. The book was published in 2013. This is the first self-published book I've read that I think is really good.
BenDedek Book Review: "Shadows of Ghosts" by Stefan Haucke
Feb 19, 2014
The book is very well written, with excellent dialogues and effective descriptive narratives and it is I think, from a 'primary text reading' perspective, a great story for children. Its full beauty however is to be found in the way it presents all of these other issues, and under cover of the primary plot, teaches children to rise above both the baser instincts of man (prejudice) as well as inhumane (biased) political and social ideology.
