As promised, here's a very short first extract from my newly published e-novel "Redeeming Factor" - written under my pen-name of Lewis Adler - and available in e-book form only from Amazon-Kindle; iBookstore for Apple iPad and very soon from Sony and Barnes & Noble too.
I will obviously add one or two chapters on here to help wet your appetite but if you would like to read the detailed "Redeeming Factor" synopsis and study the cover in close-up, please click on the following link:-
Scene: Carl Meissner and Leyna Strobl are the "Redeeming Factor" central characters at this point in the "Redeeming Factor" plot. Neuengamme was a notorious Nazi forced labour camp near Hamburg...
"Redeeming Factor" Extract ~ Copyright: Lewis Adler 2008
It didn't take long for Carl and Leyna to realise that their hopes for a complete escape from the horrors of Majdanek had come to nothing. The mass murders, the gas chambers and the crematoria at Majdanek were one thing, but Neuengamme was a nightmarish location in its own right, and with its own agenda. It looked as though they were stuck with Neuengamme for the foreseeable future. However, events were about to take an unexpected turn.
More than three days after their arrival at Neuengamme, the couple were still awaiting a call from the commandant's office to be allocated specific responsibilities. Then, early on the morning of their fourth full day at the camp, Carl was summoned to a meeting with the commandant, Sturmbannfuhrer Theodor Melzer, in person. His heart was beating furiously as he stood waiting outside the Commandant's office door, and his fear was compounded when a worried looking Leyna was escorted into the building by an SS guard. The guard pointed her in Carl's direction without a word. As she walked towards him, she attempted a smile, but her lower lip and chin trembled.
