Simple Simon by Ryne Douglas Pearson

Simple Simon by Ryne Douglas Pearson
An Art Jefferson Mystery
Publisher: Schmuck & Underwood

This fourth (and presumably final) book in this series of mysteries was adapted into the 1998 suspense thriller Mercury Rising.

About Simple Simon (from the publisher): In Chicago's quiet suburbs, sixteen-year-old Simon Lynch is about to become the focus of a global struggle of covert forces. When Simon, an autistic and a savant possessed with mathematical genius, unknowingly cracks the newest, most secure code developed by the National Security Agency, he becomes the innocent target of a deadly plan.

Simon's life depends on an unlikely ally, Special Agent Art Jefferson, the number two man at the FBI's field office in the Windy City. To save Simon, Special Agent Jefferson must face his greatest challenge — Keiko Kimura, a terrorist as beautiful as she is lethal. But Jefferson soon discovers that he is also being hunted in cyberspace by unknown forces within the intelligence community, forces perhaps closer than he'd like to think. The bond between Art and Simon turns out to be as crucial to their survival as Art's decades of experience in the FBI. Simon lives within his own world of numbers, letters, and words, and to reach him, Art must risk everything or gain nothing. And Simon, too, must learn to look outside himself and trust his new friend.

This is an enjoyable, if utterly confusing, film. Historical accuracy or inaccuracy aside — and clearly there is an argument to be made on both sides here — this is an interesting, well-made film with an intriguing premise and one worth seeing.

Southern Seahawk by Randall Peffer

Southern Seahawk by Randall Peffer
The Seahawk Trilogy
Publisher: Tyrus Books

About Southern Seahawk (from the publisher): Southern Seahawk, the first novel in the Seahawk Trilogy, grows from the true story of Commander Raphael Semmes’ rise to infamy, becoming the Union’s "Public Enemy Number One." In June, 1861, Semmes’ Confederate cruiser Sumter makes a daring escape through the Federal Blockade of the Mississippi. So begins the commander’s career as the Southern Seahawk. With a hand-picked crew of Southern officers and mercenary seamen, Semmes seizes eight enemy ships in four days, a record never surpassed by any other captain of a warship.

By the time the cruises of the Sumter and her successor Alabama end, Semmes will have taken and burned more than eighty prizes, making him the most successful maritime predator in history. For two and a half years Semmes eludes a pack of pursuers and almost single-handedly drives marine insurance rates so high in the North, that many Yankee ships refuse to sail until he is caught.

Back in Washington, Semmes’ predations fuel feuds within the Lincoln cabinet and incite the spy games of historical figures like courtesans Rose Greenhow, Betty Duval, detective Allan Pinkerton and the commander’s mistress.

Publisher: CreateSpace

This first (of four to date) in a series of light comic mysteries features roving reporter Jake Russo.

About Retirement Can Be Murder (from the publisher): When Jake Russo is transferred from a New York City beat to sunny Sarasota, his reporting life slows down.

That all changes when an older resident mysteriously dies on the beach. Jake has to figure out why and how she died. With the help of his bumbling octogenarian cameraman, Jake will have to overcome his lack of confidence and find the truth. He'll discover love, conspiracy, and surprising secrets in Florida's retirement communities.
