Nancy's Bookshelf: Looking for clues with Mike Paull and retired professor Curtis DeBerg’s imagines Ernest Hemingway meeting ballplayer Tony Oliva

Mike Paull introduced Missing, a spy thriller. The second book, "She's Missing," continues to be written in the time-honored tradition of an excellent old spy thriller. Ex-intelligence officer, Zoe Fields, disappears from the island of Cyprus, and Craig "Coop" Cooper, her former partner, goes looking for her.

Also, Curtis DeBerg has written an inspirational little tale and a tribute to two men: Ernest Hemingway, the great writer, and Tony Oliva, the great ballplayer for the Minnesota Twins in "Ernest Hemingway and Tony Oliva: How the Great Writer Met the Cuban Ballplayer."
