About this title


A serial killer is stalking Jackson Junction! A serial killer who has murdered three elderly people, who have played controversial roles in the life of August (Augie) Hans Kruger. Augie and his older cousin, Willie, find themselves as the prime suspects of the three murders by Jackson Junction Police Chief Junior Phillips, who will do anything within his power to see the Krugers sent to prison for the rest of their lives. Ironically, that's exactly the goal of the serial killer, at least in the case of Augie Kruger. And, if the serial killer can't see Augie found guilty of the murders and sent to prison, the only other recourse will be to have Augie murdered as well. Augie starts the month of August, 1970, simply planning a family reunion on the 31st to resolve some feuds, mend some fences and bring all the Krugers, American and German, back into one happy fold. That, in itself, seems to be an impossibility, since nobody is ready to raise a white flag first. However, August of 1970 turns out to be the hottest month in the history of Augie's home town of Jackson Junction. And, not just hot with 90-degree temperatures. The heat really gets turned up when Augie and his older cousin, Willie, are arrested and charged with the three murders. A trial must be held in a hot and humid court room, jammed to capacity with spectators, newspaper, radio and television reporters and a jury which must try to survive death threats from one of its own members, if they don't vote guilty. Ron, a famous defense attorney from Florida, has promised Augie and Willie that neither will ever go to prison. However, Barbara, Jackson Junction's first woman prosecutor, is just as sure that she can send the Kruger cousins to prison for the rest of their lives. And, Barbara looks to have the upper hand when she announces that she has a secret eye-witness, who will testify to seeing Augie and Willie stab at least two of the murder victims to death.

About the Author:

"The End of August" is the seventh novel by Robert A.Frey to be published by AuthorHouse and its predecessor, 1st Books. All seven fictional-historical novels are tied together by the Kruger family in one way or another. Five of the novels deal directly with the Krugers: "August in Paradise", "August and Beyond", "The 10th of August", "August in a Haunted House", and now "The End of August".The other two, "The Knight Before Last" and "Train Town" have a Kruger tread in them. August (Augie) Hans Kruger is the main character in the "August" novels, starting from the time when he was 8 years old at the beginning of "August in Paradise" until he is 61 years old in "The End of August". "Augie has been a wonderful character," Frey says. "Augie is a true folk hero, if there ever was one. He never seems to grow old.There's a kid in him that refuses to stop playing detective whenever he finds himself in the middle of mystery. And, Augie always seems to be able to find a mystery, much to the chagrin of his older cousin, Willie.But, Willie will never abandon his younger cousin, no matter how wild or dangerous their adventures become." Frey says that he believes his novels are actually children's books written for teenagers and adults. "I think everybody can relate to Augie and his life's trials, the obstacles he must overcome and his refusal to ever give up. Augie should be an inspiration to every young person. The only magic Augie ever uses to solve a problem is the magic of his love for others. Augie isn't perfect and that's what makes him such an intriguing character." There was only supposed to be one "August" book, Frey explains, but "August in Paradise" demanded a sequel, and, before he knew it, he was writing a seventh novel, "The End of August". Is "The End of August" really the end of August Hans Kruger? Frey has said before that there would be no more "August"novels, then has created yet another new adventure for Augie in the pages of a new book. W
