    In 1936 popular, charismatic MP Richard Armstrong is destined for the very top in politics, but his efforts in support of the King and Wallis Simpson, and the Jarrow Marchers, defying Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, threaten to destroy his glittering career.

    The Safe Game

    New Jersey, 1928. The Cons – Roy, Urbane, and Victoria – made a living by separating fools from their money and rarely stayed in one place for too long. Keeping food in their bellies and a roof over their heads often meant hopping from one game to the next, barely staying ahead of the law or poverty and sometimes both. That was until the day Roy – the Idea Man – thought he found a big score; one that would put the Cons on Easy Street. No more scraping by. No more hungry nights in the cold or picking pockets in desperation. Maybe even enough to get them out of this life for good. But things were never that simple. When a tragic death brings the law snooping around, the Cons find themselves running afoul of cops, gangsters, and other powerful people – ones with secrets. The Cons have gotten out of scrapes before, but their luck may soon run out and this particular game may end in luxury, a jail cell, or an early grave. Read more

Praise for Spoils of Olympus: By the Sword “In this debut novel, Kachel brings the reader on a gritty and powerful foray into Macedon’s conquered realm. It is thoroughly researched, and it has the undeniable authenticity of a soldier writing of a soldier’s life.” – HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY “Thanks to evocative writing and impressive research, the world of the ancient Greeks feels closer than ever. An educational yet adventurous novel that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next installment.” – KIRKUS REVIEWS “The geographic specificity, the nature of the characters’ relationships, the era-appropriate concerns and conversations–these felt as real and familiar to me as though I had experienced them myself. Too often, historical fiction becomes droning and academic; Kachel’s masterful recreation of the time period succeeds where many have failed.” – WRITER’S DIGEST “Christian Kachel’s By the Sword is a fine debut novel that explores the little known, but fascinating, age of post-Alexandrian Greece. Its intriguing interwoven storylines of a young man’s coming of age, of alliances and espionage, and of harrowing battles scenes will be sure to captivate readers and keep them turning the pages even as they wince and grimace with Kachel’s no-holds- barred descriptions in this well-researched historical narrative.” – CHANTICLEER BOOK REVIEW Christian Kachel lives in Washington D.C.
