New Book - a Box Set of Four Historical Novels

The Storm Gathers: Europe Between the Wars
Four Political Novels

Box Set of Four Historical Novels by Paul A Myers

Four historical novels set between 1928 and 1936 featuring enchanting romances, characters at the center of exciting historical events, and personal dramas behind the larger march of events leading to the Second World War.

A Farewell in Paris. Two American veterans in 1928 Paris collaborate on the great American novel portraying the grinding end of the Great War, a doomed romance in post-war Germany between an American officer and a German nurse, and the tragedy of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference which resulted in “the peace to end all peace.” Americans in Jazz Age Paris live the expatriate life to its fullest against the bittersweet fears of an unseen but coming war.

Paris 1934: Victory in Retreat. Newspapermen and women pursue stories and each other starting with riots in Paris that almost topple the Third Republic. Sorbonne student Sandrine joins hard-partying Americans as they drink and dance their away across the summer of 1934 while in autumn dark secrets from the 1920s French occupation of the Rhineland return to cloud the present as the Nazi menace rears its deadly head.

Vienna 1934: Betrayal at the Ballplatz. The Austrian government slides towards an Italian-style fascist state when suddenly German Nazis move to overthrow the government in a summer putsch.  A British foreign correspondent and his beautiful Austrian fiancĂ©e are caught in a deadly web of intrigue in this dramatic tale of accurate historical event and dashing fictional romance.

Paris 1935: Destiny’s Crossroads. An American diplomat strikes up a romance with a beautiful foreign policy aide close to the top of the French government as the French government struggles to maintain the alliance between Italy, France, and Great Britain in the face of the 1935 Ethiopian crisis. In 1936, with the allied Ethiopian policy in tatters, Germany opportunistically re-militarizes the Rhineland as France and Great Britain wobble and German boots march. The path to the Second World War begins.

Quote from Christine Legarde on Greeks and tax evasion

"Greece, though, is another matter: in the past year Lagarde has loudly criticised the failure of rich Greeks to pay their taxes properly. “I better not say too much because, you know, when I have talked about Greece and its taxes before, I got death threats and we had to increase security,” she mutters. “But is the shipping industry really paying its taxes? Are others? I don’t think so.” by Christine Legarde in the September 12, 2014 Financial Times (in an interview under FT Lunch).

A great biography and memoir of America's first woman ambassador (minister to Denmark 1933-37), a Florida congresswoman, and the daughter of the Great Commoner William Jennings Bryan, three-time Democratic nominee for president and Secretary of State in President Wilson' administration. The memoir is written by Ruth's daughter Rudd, herself a candidate for Congress in 1958. The Myers family has been friends of Rudd's since the 1950s when my mother Helen managed Rudd's congressional campaign. I helped produce this edition published by CreateSpace.

Besides being a top-rank politician, Ruth Bryan Owen lived a live full of both great romance and troubling heartbreak. A fascinating story from an earlier time.

An excellent KIRKUS REVIEW for my novel

A Novel


A dramatic tale of secrets and lies set against the backdrop of a devastated Greece.

Love and money are both at risk in Myers’ politically driven novel of intrigue and betrayal. In 2012, Greece is reeling from its economic downturn, and riots rage throughout Athens, threatening the daily lives of its downtrodden inhabitants. The chaos creates unsettling fear and stress for the Greek government but provides an opportunity for Jim Schiller, a hedge fund investor who invests in the promise of a financial bailout. He travels to Paris, where he conspires with the beautiful, mysterious Sophie d’Auverne, a former financial adviser with strong connections to the inner
workings of international finance. She promises him that the bailout is a sure thing and that his investment will make him a billionaire—but the bailout turns out to be as elusive as Sophie herself. As Jim waits for the return on his investment, he’s ambushed by two Russian men who seem to know details of his personal life. They insist that Jim knows the whereabouts of a crucial but mysterious document, and Jim soon discovers that it’s a leaked list of tax evaders throughout Europe, which threatens to overturn the bailout. Jim must find this list or he stands to lose far more than just his financial stability. This layered tale of romance, mystery and suspense reads like a tapestry of fact and fiction; as it outlines recent events, it also details the quest of a very determined man who’s also likable and sympathetic. Jim’s stake in the bailout touches on universal themes, including the human need for security and connection. Overall, it’s an exciting read with surprising twists but also a human interest story that’s relatable and timeless.

A contemporary story of romance and greed, told with humor and sophistication.
