The Civil War novel, BAKER’S DOZENTH, by Les Cole, stands up with the historical novels of our time. The American Civil War pitted brother against brother. In Baker's Dozenth, Jason Todd Wilder is pitted against himself. He is caught in the web of war, drawn there by President Abraham Lincoln. The president is concerned about the activities of spymaster Colonel Lafayette Baker, head of the new U.S. Secret Service. Jason goes undercover and recruits a highly educated ex-slave. Together, they face peril - arson, a drumhead court martial, enemy fire, a desperate chase out of Richmond, the Confederate capitol - that allows them to help preserve the Union. How Jason, a loyal Southerner, matures with Northern ideals occurs in the ambience of his parents’ beliefs. More important, Jason discovers the meaning of hopeless love between two misfits – one black, one white – in the deep South just prior to the eruption of the Civil War. Rather than a Southern moonlight-and-magnolias setting, this novel explores the lesser known gritty, industrial sabotage aspects in the North; Southern attempts to burn Northern cities and destroy Lincoln’s war-making capabilities. The Civil War tore at the hearts of all Americans. Baker’s Dozenth will tear at your heart.

About the Author:

Cole has written and published for over 50 years. He has a trilogy of archaeoiogical-adventure novels that take place on the island of Crete in 3500 BC. His latest two spy novels are SPITHEAD, a parallel universe tale, and BAKER'S DOZENTH, set against the background of the US civil war. He wrote dozens of science fiction stores (he co-chaired the first world science fiction convention in San Francisco) plus crime and nonfiction articles. He has also written book reviews for the American Journal of Archaeology. Cole has worked in local shipyards, automotive assembly plants, and an oxygen production facility; as a control chemist, tech writer, and ad manager for the electronics industry. He spent 20 years as a scientific and technical copywriter for various LA ad agencies. He took a geology degree -- some say illegally -- at the University of California, Berkeley, California. Cole and his family live in Ventura, California, a beach town some 50 miles north of Los Angeles. In addition to eastern Mediterranean archaeology, his interest in quantum physics keeps him amused. He spends a significant amount of time wishing he were as good a novelist as Winston Graham.
