Although DEBRIS is a work of fiction based around the real life event of the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania, it could just as easily form part of the real story of that cataclysmic event. So real are Len Abram's characters, so inextricably intertwined are their lives and their parts in the grand scheme of things, that they are all totally believable. In telling his story, Len's attention to detail is nothing short of astounding. One minute you the reader are aboard a German U Boat, hearing all the creaks and groans of a submarine, feeling the tension as the boat lurks unseen, stalking it's prey; the next you are in America, among the capitalists,  then the Ukraine, breathlessly willing the entirely innocent Hannah to escape the evil clutches of the Czarist Police and following her throughout her ordeal and subsequent encounters with the underground revolutionaries and ultimately; her involvement with the German Intelligence service and her falling fatefully in love. But it is not all about Hannah. Far from it. There are so many characters involved here that the pace is fast and furious. This book is nothing short of a literary maelstrom which takes the reader on a whirlwind journey through a fascinating period of American and European history. Len's description of being aboard the grand liner Lusitania, conjours up such a vivid vision of the shipboard life of those times, that you feel you ought to check your ticket! DEBRIS is simply Len Abram's latest masterpiece; a real page turner from start to finish and you will not want to put it down! Len Abram's novel DEBRIS is now available through Amazon US. Amazon UK Deadly Secret of the Lusitania A German submarine sank the RMS Lusitania on May 7, 1915, causing the death of 1,200 civilian passengers. This horrifying crime began the chain of events that dragged the United States into the First World War. In this historical novel, set in New York City in 1915, an insurance investigator and his fiancée have undertaken to assist a stevedore’s widow unjustly deprived of her husband’s life insurance benefit. But the couple then find themselves unexpectedly in possession of the suppressed, secret truth about the Lusitania’s cargo and for this reason under threat from German and British spies, Irish republicans, a rogue socialist, New York’s waterfront criminals and the newly-created Bureau of Investigation. The gripping story unfolds in thrilling scenes that sustain the suspense and finally leads readers into a long-suppressed truth. NON LUSITANIA RELATED TITLES. Click on each image for full details.

Although THE LUSITANIA PLOT first appeared in 1979 under the title ATTACK THE LUSITANIA!, it has not aged at all. With 2015 being the centenary of the disaster, there are a number of books coming out which, like this one, are a work of fiction set against the disaster. What separates this from the rest is the fact that this is easily one of the very best. This book's plot centres around the age-old conspiracy theory that Winston Churchill, who was then First Lord of the Admiralty, wanted the Lusitania sunk so as to bring America into the war on the side of the Allies. Raymond Hitchcock adds the twist that the Admiralty, not entirely certain if the Germans would actually go so far as to attack such a famous liner, decided to do the job themselves and then have the Germans blamed for it.   In order to write good "fact-tion" you have to get the facts themselves absolutely straight. You must also make sure that the plot is utterly believable,the characters must be entirely credible and that there are no holes in the story. Raymond Hitchcock has achieved those aims superbly well. This book is right up there with such masterpieces as Jack Higgins' THE EAGLE HAS LANDED, such is the quality of Hitchcock's writing and imagination. Having thoroughly enjoyed reading it, I have absolutely no trouble in recommending this book to anyone, and if there are any film producers or directors out there looking for a suitable project, look no further. This book everything you need. Mitch Peeke Amazon UK Link
