Non-Westerns by Charles G. West. Available in Kindle and Kindle-PC Format




RENO'S ISLAND: Laura Hammond, an advertising executive, and the daughter of Senator Eugene Hammond, a crime-fighting congressman, is abducted from a shopping mall in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Spirited away by two mobsters who are members of a Philadelphia crime family, she is held prisoner on an uncharted island somewhere off the coast of Florida. An unlikely hero appears to free her from the two gangsters, and the two of them are now on the run. Not at all confident that she is better off with the wild-looking man who claims to have lost his memory, she is forced to fight for her life while hoping her father and the FBI find her before the mob does.

THE MARBLE HILL HOTEL: The year is 1950. Young John Reed, a newly graduated Textile Engineer, lands his first job as a trainee in a Goodyear mill in the small town of Rockledge, Georgia. His financial situation dictates the necessity to seek a room in a boarding house for bachelor mill workers. From his first day at the Marble Hill, John discovers that his life will never be the same after exposure to the cast of zany characters there. The story is humorous, raunchy at times, and written with the safety off.

THE TENANT: It is an impossibility to transplant the human brain. So say the leading doctors and researchers in the field. Yet Chris Warren has succeeded in perfecting such a procedure, but never on a human subject. A bizarre accident involving a hulking psychopath results in Dr. Warren's death and leaving the monster brain dead. In an effort to save Warren's brain, his assistants perform the transplant procedure, using the criminal's body as the recipient. The operation is a success, but it is not to be celebrated because no one believes it possible. The police want custody of the fugitive Jesse Campbell for murder. Alone and on the run, Chris Warren desperately tries to find a way to convince his wife, his friends, and the police that there is an innocent brain inside the criminal body.
