The Ninja Murders Commodore Matthew Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853 was one of history's defining moments. His visit ended over two-hundred years of self-imposed isolation and precipitated the fall of the Shogunate. It was also the moment that gave birth to Japanese ambitions to rule East Asia and the Western Pacific. America's desire to increase its international standing inadvertently opened a Pandora's Box that would lead to no less than five wars, including World War II. However, The Ninja Murders is not a history book. It's a novel of historical fiction. And as every fan of the genre knows, behind every great historical event, there is a hero deeply enmeshed in intrigue, danger and romance. Samurai, swords and sex! Another page-turner from Andrew Suhrer. Not only do we get a well-researched story, but an incredibly entertaining one at that. Praise for Andrew B. Suhrer's The Flying Dutchmen "Surreal, stunning, heartwarming and magnificent..." Maggie Carter de Vries, Author: Amelia's Secrets. "Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down." Annette Myers, Author: Shrinking Sands of an African American Beach. "A wonderfully researched and written book, a real page turner to the very end. I could not put it down, the characters literally jump off the page as each battle on the field and crisis in daily life was fought."

Andrew grew up in the 1970s with his funny, loving but deeply unstable mother. Life with her was totally chaotic. She left him alone in motel rooms at night and took him with her when she went house burgling. But Andrew's mother wasn't bad, she was just lost herself and one thing she did was always tell him she loved him. Gradually, though, the bad times got worse. One day Andrew, aged seven, found his mother in the bathroom in the middle of a breakdown, the walls covered in her pleas for help all written in the blood from the cuts she'd inflicted on herself. He was taken into care and put with a foster family who treated him with loneliness and neglect at best and cruel indifference as standard. This is a groundbreaking story of a childhood destroyed by mental illness. It is also a heartbreaking love story about a mother's legacy of love.

Set in rural South Carolina and urban North Carolina, in the novel Holding On: A Parable of Faith and Strength, we watch Sister Fullmore emerge through a very untypical childhood to become a very untypical woman. The book begins on her first day of school, where we see hints of the smart, sassy young woman she becomes. From a father who drinks his family into a life of poverty, to brothers who leave her to fend for herself, Sister's expectations for the male population are pretty low. Somehow, it seems the men in her life live "down" to those expectations. Her Grandma Hester tells her, "Pick your man, don't let a man pick you. That way you know what you're getting." Her mother's advises, "Don't fall in love with a man just because of his looks unless he has enough money to buy you a house." In all her sixteen years of living, Sister hasn't met one man who tempted her to forget that advice. Then she meets a fine piece of chocolate manhood named Joe Ervin Evans... A liquor house wasn't a place where a man figured on meeting the woman of his dreams, and finding a wife was the last thing on Joe's mind that night. Until he meets Sister, his smile has never failed to make a woman's heart melt. Undaunted by her seeming lack of interest in him, he sets out to convince this pretty little woman that she is going to be his.
