John Miller (Author of The Hunt for the Peggy C) in conversation with journalist Tom Eblen
This February, join award-winning investigative reporter and local KY author John Winn Miller as he invites readers aboard the Peggy C for a vivid adventure set during World War II in the North Atlantic in THE HUNT FOR THE PEGGY C: A World War II Maritime Thriller (Bancroft Press; November 1, 2022; $25.95).
A semifinalist in the Clive Cussler Adventure Writers Competition, the book is receiving terrific praise including this rave review from Chris Evans, author of Of Bone and Thunder: “The Hunt for the Peggy C is a tour de force of historical research that has pace, clarity, suspense, fascinating historical data woven in with the narrative, and perhaps most importantly, heart.”
Midwest Book Review celebrates THE HUNT FOR THE PEGGY C as “a vivid inspection of moral, ethical, social, and political changes set against a thrilling backdrop of confrontation and revelation that will reach not only historical novel readers, but those typically attracted to thriller and action stories.” Perfect for fans of historical fiction like Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale and readers that love the fast-paced action of thrillers by David Baldacci and Lee Child, THE HUNT FOR THE PEGGY C is one of the best historical fiction reads of the fall!
Miller is a Lexington, Ky., native that served as a foreign correspondent for The Associated Press and Wall Street Journal/Europe based in Rome, Italy; a reporter and editor at the Lexington (KY) Herald-Leader. He will be in conversation with journalist and photographer Tom Eblen on Saturday, February 4 at 4pm at the Joseph-Beth Lexington bookstore.
