On Route 66
On Route 66 is a series of short stories about that great and wonderful era when the open road brought something new and exciting. It’s a book about people. People on the move.
In a series of twelve short stories, Daniel Wyatt evokes that great and wonderful era in the good ol’ US of A.
Professional baseball hasn't always been integrated. Up until the 1940s, there were white leagues and negro leagues. Regardless of talent, white team owners fought long and hard to keep blacks from entering their exclusive clubs. Then the Brooklyn Dodgers took the other owners on by scouting two black players of equal talent. The goal -- two players breaking the color line together...
One was Jackie Robinson. The other had a past.
The Cotton Run
Captain Joshua Denning is a veteran of the nighttime cotton runs through the Union blockaders off Cape Fear, near Wilmington, in 1863.
During a confrontation on the high seas outside Nassau, Denning clashes with an old adversary, Captain Robert Carlisle, from his days at Annapolis Navy Academy ten years before. The next time they meet, when Denning takes on one final blockade run, the greatest shipment of them all, only one will be victorious...
The Last Flight
Of The Arrow
February 20, 1959, the Canadian prime minister stood before the House of Commons to announce that his government had decided to cancel the CF-105 Avro Arrow supersonic fighter-interceptor program. What were the reasons? Over three hundred million dollars had been spent on the aircraft considered by many to be twenty years ahead of its time. It was also suggested that the new missile age - brought on by the advent of the Russian satellite Sputnik - had made manned interceptors obsolete.
But what were the real reasons? And were the Americans involved?
The Mary Jane Mission
When the B29 Superfortress Mary Jane is discovered in 1945 sitting in thick jungle with no visible damage, and her crew and payload are missing, the incident is hushed up and forgotten. But in 1990, puzzling radar images start to appear. F18 crews sent up to investigate discover a B29 flying towards Japan. What is this mysterious plane? If it is the Mary Jane continuing her mission, how can they stop it?
The Shot Heard
'Round the World
The 1951 New York Giants didn't stand a chance. Their losing streak was making even the most devoted fan think twice, and there seemed no hope for them to turn it around. The Giants were feeling less sure of their own worth every day. But then something happened. Was it the introduction of young Willie Mays? Did the improvement of the pitching staff bring the needed change? Were the players so angry at their losses that they decided to get tough and fight their way back to the top? Or was there another factor at playsomething that may be one of the best-kept secrets in baseball history?

(Series of 3)
The Fuehrermaster delves deep into the mysterious Rudolf Hess peace flight of World War II.
Spring, 1941. Britain's Prime Minister Winston Churchill is on the verge of being overthrown by an English lobby group of Nazi appeasers who plan to sign a secret pact with Nazi Fuehrer Adolf Hitler to end the war in Europe. Hitler gets wind of the overthrow. He feels that the British group are ready to cut a deal on his terms, and that only one man--his deputy Rudolf Hess--could pull it off for the Fatherland. Through secret channels, Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler--who has his own ambitions to be Fuehrer--finds out what Hess and Hitler are attempting.
Across the channel, Churchill's group is ready. Young hot-shot American intelligence agent, Wesley Hollinger, on loan to the British Secret Service, uncovers Heinrich Himmler's plan to eliminate Hess and plant an imposter...
The Filberg Consortium
It is late 1941. America has yet to enter the war.
A German agent secretly lands in Great Britain with orders from Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler and financed by I.S. Filberg, the huge German industrial cartel, to identify and kill the prisoner called Rudolf Hess.
Meanwhile, in London, American agent Wesley Hollinger discovers a crucial missing section to the first Hess peace papers found near the crash site in Scotland. The paperwork itemizes sensitive Wall Street loans to Nazi war factories -- deals arranged by I.S. Filberg.
Hollinger doesn't know who to turn to -- his adopted England or his home country. And thousands of miles away in the Pacific a heavily-armed Japanese Task Force is heading towards Pearl Harbor...

The Americans are desperate to keep the Foo Fighter blueprints from reaching Russian and British hands.
Wesley Hollinger of the OSS soon realizes what World War Two is really all about--power, money, and politics.
