Critics Praise the Novels of Forsmark and Imholt:

A unique combination of startling fact and gripping fiction...Must-read on every page.”
----THOMAS FLEMING: Author of A Disease in the Public Mind: A New Understanding of the Civil War

A great read, a novel as good as the best journalism, with vivid and accurate details driving a tale of danger and deception and betrayal .... This book doesn't just feel researched, it feels lived.
--ROBERT FERRIGNO, NY Times best-selling novelist, Prayers for the Assassin

As real as fiction gets. A non-stop ride into combat told with perfection.
--BOB HAMER, veteran FBI undercover agent and the author of The Last Undercover

An excellent Historical Novel, an action tale and a mystery...a book that you will enjoy from cover to cover.

I enjoyed every minute of it. Both entertaining and enlightening...

A real page-turner
MARK TAPSON, Frontpage Magazine

CHINA BONES is the story of a young American Marine in China through the Sino-Japanese War, World War II and the ultimate fall of Shanghai to the Communists in 1949. Zack Cameron finds love and fortune in Shanghai, loses his fortune, and survives a brutal Japanese prison camp only to face even more danger. In a race against time, Zack is forced to put together a desperate treasure hunt amid the confusion of civil war and the Communist takeover of China.

CHINA BONES is also the story of the great city of Shanghai. It begins with the old China - the International Settlement where allies and enemies ruled side by side in uneasy tension, while the very rich, the very poor, soldiers, diplomats, business tycoons and gunboat diplomacy. CHINA BONES guides readers through how the city suffered under a brutal occupation by the invading Japanese, only to then turn herself over to perhaps the most brutal dictatorship the world has ever known.

Equal parts thrilling historical adventure, passionate wartime romance, and gripping war story, CHINA BONES will appeal to fans of the adventure novels of Wilbur Smith, the military novels of WEB Griffin, as well as those fascinated by the examination of China and Chinese life in the novels of Amy Tan.
