First Audiobook from Le French Book is Released
For mystery and thriller publisher Le French Book, "a book is a book is a book" no matter what format it comes in. The translation publisher began digital first, added print books and now has deals with Audible for audiobooks.
The first audio title is now available. It's The Bleiberg Project by David Khara, narrated by Graham Vick. This thriller kicks off the Consortium Thriller series, which dips into the history of World War II, then races through a modern-day loop-to-loop of action and humor. What impact could the folly of World War II-death camps, medical manipulation and chemical warfare-still have today? Fighting massive destruction, the hero is a mixture of Highlander and James Bond, who is bent on justice. The series juggles with time and place in a potent mix constructed around flashbacks that allow readers to piece together key events. But chase scenes, gunfights and explosions are only one part of the story. The main theme is resistance and what makes people great.
In The Bleiberg Project, absolute truths become undeniable lies overnight for depressive Wall Street trader Jeremy Corbin. He finds out his long-lost father is dead, he discovers his boss's real identity, and he ends up boarding a plane to Zurich. He has a Nazi medallion in his pocket, a hot CIA bodyguard next to him, and a clearly dangerous Mossad agent on his tail. What was his father investigating? Why was his mother assassinated? Why are unknown sides fighting over him with automatic weapons? Can the conspiracy be stopped?
This fast-paced thriller full of humor and humanity was an instant sensation in France. It's like a dash of Robin Cook, a splash of John Grisham, and a pinch of Clive Cussler combined into a unique experience with a very distinctive voice all its own.
