Author Biography
I am the author of two previously published suspense novels. "Thursday at Noon" is a Joan Kahn Book published by St. Martin’s Press in hardback, in paper by Harlequin, and in various foreign editions. It was well-reviewed in The New Yorker and in many other publications. My first novel, "The Allah Conspiracy" was published by Beaufort Books. I currently have a new, international suspense novel "A War of Whispers" out with publishers, plus "The Undertaker", which was published in EPUB and is available on Amazon Kindle, Sony, IBooks, Nook, and Kobo. In addition to the five novels, I’ve also written four award-winning screenplays, one of which was optioned.

I live in Columbus, Ohio. As the Vice President of the real estate subsidiary of a Fortune 500 corporation, I traveled widely in the US and abroad. A native of Chicago, I earned a BA in History and Russian Area Studies and a graduate degree from the University of Illinois. I’ve been active in politics and numerous civic organizations over the years, and served as a company commander in the US Army.



Book Review
Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' F for Readers' Favorite

This book was once said, “The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Peter Talbot Emerson could have said the same thing. His wife Terri had died the previous year. Shortly after the funeral Peter headed to Mexico. He tried to drink away his pain; most of his stay there is a blur. When the Mexican police found a charred body they assumed it was Peter and declared him dead. His friends threw him a big funeral and buried the unrecognizable body next to Terri. Imagine their surprise when Peter showed up in LA…alive.

Peter decided he needed a new beginning and taking a job on the other side of the country would give him that beginning. He was settling into his new post in Waltham, MA.

Peter was shocked when he saw his and Terri’s obituaries in the Columbus, Ohio’s paper. He was determined to find out who had been using his identity and why. The more he investigated the more he found questions instead of answers answers.

Organized crime, funerals, obituaries, and the Undertaker will keep readers turning the pages. I mustn’t forget the mysterious man with a .45 that keeps showing up in Peter’s life. The Undertaker by William F. Brown has it all suspense, mystery, action, intrigue, politicians, conspiracy, thrills, and a bit of romance. The reader is quickly drawn in to this book. Peter is a multidimensional character; he is quite personable but more than a little dim at times. There are lots of “bad” guys and Peter never knows who to trust. The plot is full of surprises. What looks like a simple identity theft soon becomes a complicated crime involving the Mafia. This book has over 400 pages which at first may seem a daunting but once I started reading I couldn’t stop. The name of this book fits perfect with the plot. This is not a book I want to read alone late at night. I may never look at a funeral home in the same way again.
