Books By This Author

“5-Stars! from William B. Kellenberger, Amazon Reviewer Could Be From The Morning Paper. The timing of this book is very contemporary and could have been on the morning news. I found it hard to put down, and feel it could make a great movie. Lots of action and a straightforward plot. There aren't many 'plot twists', but the story is very linear and easy to keep track of what's happening. I have a copy of his audio book The Undertaker audiobook on my iTouch, and as soon as I finish the one I'm currently listening to, I'll be jumping on it. Brown has found a fan.”
