The last thing Louis Rosen expected of his son, Billy, was that he would volunteer for the draft after graduating from Harvard in 1949 with highest honors; and the last thing Billy expected of his father was that he would become a partner in a criminal enterprise known as "Furax Unlimited." Yet, when these two events unexpectedly collide and connect Billy's life is changed forever.
The Furax Connection chronicles Billy's struggle for survival during his initial weeks in uniform when, unwittingly, he becomes entangled in a web of deceit and intrigue from which he must either extricate himself or suffer the shame and disgrace of a dishonorable discharge. That he survives at all is testimony not only to his resourcefulness and strength of purpose, but to his uncanny ability to forge relationships. And, as Billy struggles to survive, he discovers that, contrary to the civilian world of indifferent strangers he left behind, the military is a close-knit family of good and decent people who unselfishly care for their own.

After graduating from Harvard College, Steve Kanne served in the Army as an overseas military news reporter and editor. Following his discharge from the service, he attended Stanford Law School and then practiced real estate law for over three decades. Steve wrote one of the three winning short stories in the 2006 Stanford Fiction Contest (his short story, My Auntie's Wedding, is available online at the Stanford Magazine site). The Furax Connection is his first novel.Review:
A great read - enough twists to keep you wondering where it will take you. Great military characters that portray the life realistically and with personalities I found in my 30 years in the Air Force. My disappointment that the book was ending quickly vanished when I realized a sequel was in the offing. You will enjoy this book and the surprises it brings. --Dan R. Goodrich, Brig Gen (Ret), United States Air Force
Set in the years between WWII and Korean conflict, Steve Kanne tells a gripping story of intrigue, honor, and deceit in the US Army. It brings together those stalwart career soldiers, veterans of the great battles of the war just ended and intent on maintaining a dedicated and capable military force, with the new recruits who represent the future of the Army, but who in one case brings unlikely "baggage" with him. This novel keeps you turning the page until the very end. --Maxey Phillips, Brig Gen (Ret), Air National Guard
