Sam Eastland – audiobooks

Steven has recently read two audiobooks by author Sam Eastland.

The Beast in the Red Forest: Inspector Pekkala, Book 5
Author – Sam Eastland

Beast

Publisher’s Summary

A soldier returns from the front line of battle to report that Pekkala’s charred body has been found at the site of an ambush. But Stalin refuses to believe that the indomitable Pekkala is dead.

On Stalin’s orders, Pekkala’s assistant, Kirov, travels deep into the forests of Western Russia, following a trail of clues to a wilderness where partisans wage a brutal campaign against the Nazi invaders. Unknown to Kirov, he is being led into a trap. A new enemy has emerged from the fog of war, more deadly than any Kirov or Pekkala have ever faced before.

Pursuing the legend of a half-human creature said to roam the landscape of this war within a war, each step brings Kirov closer to the truth about Pekkala’s disappearance. Meanwhile, Pekkala’s nemesis is also closing in for the kill.

Sam Eastland lives in the US and the UK. He is the grandson of a London police detective. Eye of the Red Tsar, the first in the Inspector Pekkala series, was followed by The Red Coffin and Siberian Red.

Red Icon, Inspector Pekkala – Book 6
Author – Sam Eastland

RedIcon

Publisher’s Summary
In the midst of the fighting, two Russian soldiers seek refuge in the crypt of a German church. There, clutched in the hands of a skeleton priest, they find The Shepherd – a priceless icon thought to have been destroyed long ago. When news of its discovery reaches Moscow, Stalin calls upon his most trusted investigator, Inspector Pekkala, once a favourite of the tsar and known to all of Russia as The Emerald Eye.

To unravel the secret of the icon’s past, Pekkala traces its last known whereabouts to a band of self-mutilating radicals known as The Skoptsy, who were hunted to extinction years ago by the Bolshevik Secret Police. Or so it was believed. As Pekkala soon learns, the last survivors of this brutal sect have clung to life in the shadowy forests of Siberia. With the reappearance of the icon, they have returned to claim the treasure they say belongs to them alone, bringing with them a new and terrible weapon to unleash upon the Russian people. Unless the Emerald Eye can stop them.

Sam Eastland lives in the US and the UK. He is the grandson of a London police detective. Eye of the Red Tsar, the first in the Inspector Pekkala series, was followed by The Red Coffin and Siberian Red.

Voiceover – E4 Twilight Films Trailer

Steven provides the voiceover for this E4 trailer promoting the Twilight films. Yes, it is him!

Steven reads ‘Reacher Said Nothing’

Latest release of Steven’s work on audiobooks.

Reacher Said Nothing – written by Andy Martin

Reacher

Publisher’s Summary

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS.

On September 1, 1994, Lee Child went out to buy the paper to start writing his first novel – in pencil. The result was Killing Floor, which introduced his hero Jack Reacher. Twenty years later, on September 1, 2014, he began writing Make Me, the 20th novel in his number-one best-selling Reacher series. Same day, same writer, same hero.

The difference, this time, was that he had someone looking over his shoulder. Andy Martin, uber Reacher fan, Cambridge academic, expert on existentialism and dedicated surfer, sat behind Lee Child in his office and watched him as he wrote. While Lee was writing his Reacher book, Andy was writing about the making of Make Me.

Reacher Said Nothing is a book about a guy writing a book. An instant metabook. It crosses genres by bringing a high-level critical approach to a popular text and gives a fascinating insight into the art of writing a thriller, showing the process in real time. It may well be the first of its kind.

[Spoiler alert: if you haven’t read Make Me yet, this book contains spoilers.]
