Meet Dr. George Hartmann: Rocket scientist. Ex-military hero. Fiercely devoted family man.

Family is everything to George, which is why he wants desperately to keep his growing brood safe. It’s why he’s dedicated his life to a career working on the front lines of national security. And it’s why he’s kept a low profile, careful not to draw too much attention to himself.

He figures a move home to Upstate New York and into a big new house is a chance to loosen up and enjoy the money his father left him, but things get turned upside down when a violent break-in endangers his sons and prompts a dramatic spiritual awakening no one could have seen coming.

After all, it’s easy to dismiss as an overactive imagination when a four-year-old mentions having lived with the family before in another time and place. But the situation becomes more complicated when George experiences those same memories himself and then comes to realize that centuries-old demons may be back to haunt him.

In Ithaca's Soldier, the first book in the twisty psychological thriller George Hartmann Series, George vows to find out exactly what happened in the past and how it connects to present-day circumstances while, at the same time, navigating life's ups and downs.

It's almost more than one person can handle. Luckily, George has the best people to lean on. And they are always there for each other.

Join the family you'll feel like you already know as, together, they explore the meaning of life beyond what lies on the surface and fight to keep each other safe.

Will George be able to protect the ones he loves and find lasting peace?


Praise for Ithaca's Soldier:

"Astonishing debut! There can’t be enough said about this novel. This engaging tale stays with you long after the final line is read."

"I couldn’t put it down! Honestly! At one point I was standing in the dining room, knew I should go to bed, but stood there reading just one more chapter ... standing up."

"A one-night read for me. Started the book early and finished as the sun was coming up, so one might say my attention was captured quickly and I couldn’t put it down. Thought provoking even after I finished the book. Not your standard romance or mystery. Surprises emerge!"

"Those who enjoy Alex Cross’s wonderful family and close friends in James Patterson’s series will recognize similar dynamics here. The family and friends portrayed in Ithaca’s Soldier are the best. Their emotions are genuine, their affection and loyalty absolute. Already I care about them, admire the trust they have for one another, and can’t wait to see how they support each other in the books to follow."

"From the first page I was totally drawn in to this powerful story of family love and adoration of four generations. Then the incident of sheer terror scared me to death! By the end, I was streaming tears! So many emotions in a realistic setting."

"Fascinating book, engaging characters, realistic dialogue, true suspense. I’m so glad this is the first in a series, because I want there to be more."

"Wonderful read. I loved it. It is different from anything else I’ve read. So many twists and turns, it keeps your interest."

"Really enjoyed this book. This isn’t my normal go-to for a book to read, but I could not put it down. Beautiful and moving, I can’t wait to read what is in store for the characters."
