November 2023 Reading List

This month’s reading list selections consist of books I used to research ONLY THE DEAD. This sixth novel in the James Reece Terminal List series was research intensive into the OSS, CIA, the Bretton Woods Agreement, Vietnam, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the Kennedy assassination, Able Archer 1983, and the Vietnam POW / MIA issue. Find out how all these events and institutions are linked in the pages of ONLY THE DEAD.
