Our Featured Title
Rarely do you get a stunning work of suspense and a literary treasure trove in the same novel, but that’s what you get with No Dawn for Men by national bestselling author James LePore and Carlos Davis. Imagining a joint mission in Nazi Germany between JRR Tolkien and Ian Fleming, this novel combines meticulous research, scores of allusions to The Lord of the Rings and James Bond, and a pulse-pounding plot to create one of the most un-put-down-able novels of the year.
