my latest – over the wall

Earlier this week, my latest true crime short, Over the Wall: The True Story of the 1947 Escape from Holmesburg Prison was released on Kindle. Here’s a synopsis:

In 1945, twelve inmates tunneled out of Pennsylvania’s Eastern State Penitentiary. Within weeks, the escapees were all rounded up.

Barely two years later, four of the Eastern State “Tunnel Rats,” including bank robber Willie Sutton and mob hitman Fred “The Angel” Tenuto, made a daring escape from Holmesburg Prison. This time, rounding up all the fugitives wouldn’t be quite so easy.

It’s only 99 cents, or you can read it free if you have kindle unlimited. It’s a sequel of sorts to Under the Wall.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been pretty busy with a little writing project. Under the Wall: The True Story of the 1945 Tunnel Escape from Eastern State Penitentiary is a true crime short about a prison break at the notorious Philadelphia prison. A dozen men, including infamous bank robber Willie Sutton, got out through a tunnel nearly a hundred feet long that took over a year and a half to build.

This one was a lot of fun to research and write. Under the Wall is about five thousand words long, which comes out to around twenty printed pages. It’s available as an ebook at Amazon and Smashwords. It should be up at other retailers (Kobo, Apple, B&N etc.) in the near future.
