He,fears Erin, under constant guard and the threat of exploitation and shame, will bond with her captors in a self-imposed prison.

Peter H .Green, Writer, architect and city planner, reared in a family of journalists, writes architectural mystery, suspense and World War II history. In his career as an architect, Peter has witnessed enough close calls, suspicious acts and outright skullduggery to lure him into writing mysteries. He also loves to delve in history and the secrets he finds hidden in the past, buried underground, as decided out of the public eye by shadowy figures familiar with the city’s critical infrastructure Peter found his father’s 400 World War II letters,his humorous war stories, his mother’s writings and his family’s often hilarious doings too good a tale to keep to himself, so he launched a second career as a writer. After years of architectural work and proposal writing for his design firms, he went back to Washington University to study creative writing with such accomplished authors as Catherine Rankovic, Robert Earleywine and Rick Skwiot, resulting in the release in 2005 of his World War II biography on the humorous antics and serious achievements of his father’s military adventure, Dad’s War with the United States Marines, James A. Rock & Co., Seaboard Press (Florence, SC). In 2012 his first mystery, Crimes of Design, was published by L & L Dreamsell, London, TX.
