Playing War Becomes Deadly Game in New Novel Mark Penn Goes to War, Published by Outskirts Press


Gulf Shores, AL, August 22, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Veteran author Michael Springer today announced the release of his newest work, Mark Penn Goes to War, a sequel to The Bootlegger’s Secret. Both books are published by Outskirts Press. While playing war, Springer’s young hero Mark Penn discovers he may have landed himself and his friend Swede Larson in the middle of a nest of enemy spies and suspected Nazi traitors in Minnesota in 1942.

After Pearl Harbor, Japanese-Americans have only a short time to re-locate from the west coast to comply with an executive order from President Roosevelt. The Matsui family drive from Bakersfield, California, to Middleton, Minnesota, but when they arrive, a bigoted landlord reneges on his promise of a rental home for them. Instead, two reclusive brothers—who are being watched by the FBI for being possible Nazis—offer the Matsuis a vacant house on Middleton Ridge.

Twelve-year-old Mark Penn is playing war on the ridge when he sees one of the brothers give Mr. Matsui a Luger.

Mark tells his pal Swede, and the boys inform Police Chief Karl Morton. They ignore the Chief’s order to stay away from the Matsuis, and soon find themselves so deeply enmeshed in the FBI’s intrigue that their lives are endangered.

Mark is too young to enlist and fight the Japanese like his hero Middleton Aces’ second baseman Red Collins, who is serving aboard the USS Yorktown, but he hopes to do his part for the war effort by finding out who the Matsuis really are.

Mark quickly discovers that playing war can be a deadly game.

Mark Penn Goes to War is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
