What do Readers Think of Redemption?

Hello, Berliners!

It's a rainy spring day in San Antonio. My garden is green and blooming, and my cat, Sammy, doesn't feel like he needs to rise from bed on such a gray day.

Reviews are coming in for The Redemption of Joseph Heinz, and so far, so good! 5-Star reviews for Det. Heinz!

 ***** Great read.

"It was hard to put this one down. a fantastic third book in this series. Great read. No spoilers here."

Format: Kindle Edition
..."This story is full of the action, violence and criminal and political intrigue we've come to expect from Gwynn. It follows not only Heinz himself but Direktor Faust, Heinz's fiancee Birgitta Mahler and the newly promoted Elsa Keiss and chronicles two seemingly unrelated investigations, one in St. Petersburg and the other in Berlin. Followers of the series will become reacquainted with old friends and old enemies although the book provides enough background that reading the earlier stories isn't essential to your enjoyment of this new offering. If you're a fan of police stories, political intrigue, political affairs and exotic European locations, you will love this one."

A thrill ride through the dark, corrupt side of Russia’s underworld for all the right, and hopeless, reasons...I highly recommend reading this series. You won’t be disappointed."

Checkpoint Author Visits The Faust Hotel

There's quite a lot of history to be found in the small towns outside of San Antonio. One of these gems happens to be The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company located just 15 minutes from my house, right up I35 North, in the town of New Braunfels, Texas.

Mondays are usually so dull, but my friend Carmen was off work, and we decided to head on over to The Faust for dinner. I found it online when checking for good places to scarf down some German food, and when I saw the name of it, I knew we had to go there. As many of you know, one of my engaging Checkpoint series characters shares the same last name, Herman Faust, the dry-witted Direktor of the Landeskriminalamt (LKA). I felt it was a sign, one that screamed "Come here!"

Off we gals went, enjoying great conversation on the way. The Faust sits on S. Seguin Ave. near the historic downtown region of New Braunfels. Out front of this four-story hotel is a bubbling fountain that is part of the front-facing wall. The night desk …
