A. Colin Wright is pleased to announce publication of his new novel in early 2017:

A Berlin Of The Mind--And Ravensbrück

"Henry watched as his cousin walked ahead down the track, taking his gun from its holder and fingering it. Suddenly he stopped and turned, a dark figure against the brightness of the stars and the low hulk of the cottage they'd passed. He raised the gun and took aim. Henry felt a sharp pain somewhere to the right of his heart, hearing the shot as he fell. Michael had betrayed him after all. "
