Listening To Ghosts is an accounting of the author’s experience growing up in a Northeastern working class neighborhood and subsequent career as an enlisted man in the United States Navy before the Navy became an instrument for social engineering experimentation. Written in the first person the author takes the reader through his adventures – and misadventures – in frank, candid and politically incorrect language. (Amazon.com)
Fighting Bob: “You are most suited to complete the mission that I require.” With those spoken words I began a ten day journey with the ghost of my great-great-great grandfather Commodore ‘Fighting Bob,’ a journey filled with adventure, danger and conquest. I would witness the duels with British Officers while narrowly avoiding capture and imprisonment, subdue both Barbary Pirates and savage tribesmen and invade the California Territory, wresting it from rebel armies in pitched battle. Why was I selected? What skills or knowledge did I possess that I was the one uniquely qualified to carry out his mission? It wasn’t long before the answer to these questions and more would be revealed. I was about to embark on an unforgettable odyssey. (Amazon.com)
