I have just downloaded a new publication from Amazon.com.The book is named Enemies Of Their Own Blood written and published from one of our very own forum members.I have not read the book but very much look forward to it.The e book version of the book is $2.99 and I encourage all forum members to have a look at it.

Description of book as posted on Amazon

My sincere thanks to both you fine gentlemen. Writing a book is a humbling experience, having someone read it is even moreso.
