In the summer of 1941 America edges closer to joining battle against Hitler’s victorious armies in Europe…but a dangerous spy game is already underway.

And what ever goes exactly as planned?

    Patrick O’Bryon’s “Corridor of Darkness” was one of the best books I have read in recent years. Book 2: “Beacon of Vengeance” is now available and I expect it to be of as high a caliber as the first. Pick up your copy today!

    Congrats on launch! When can I order hard copy from Amazon? Who is the guy on cover? Nice tie in to Donovan. Did the ring make it to publication?

    • Len, thanks for the congrats! Print version is available right now on Amazon; they just haven’t linked the ebook and paperback editions yet. Just go to, enter “Beacon of Vengeance” in the search box, then click on “in books” and it will come up about fourth book down. Once you’ve read the story you should know who the cover character is, and yes, the famous ring photos appear in the Afterword.

    While I’m taking a sort of break from blogging and most things technology, there are certain things I do need to do … and that’s promote my favorite self-published authors. Patrick O’Bryon holds a spot at the top of the list. One of the most well-written and produced self-published authors I’ve seen. Here’s the second book in his World War II spy thriller trilogy. Buy the first, then read this one. I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed at Patrick’s work — the quality of which all of us independent authors should be aspiring to.

    A fantastic read– and not because we share the same last name! Started reading last night, had to put it down because it was too haunting of a bedtime story. Adeptly written. If you haven’t read Corridor of Darkness, Volume 1, start there!
