Mindstir Media has released Panama’s Rusty Lock: A Novel of the 1984 Presidential Election by Jay Beck, available in paperback and Kindle/Nook formats. The book has garnered some early rave reviews, including this one from a reviewer at Amazon:
“I’ve spent time in Panama, and have to say that this is a “page turner” written by someone who obviously observed and experienced the amazing events that occurred there in the mid-1980’s. As the saying goes, “you can’t make this stuff up,” but even though this book is described as “historical fiction,” in the hands of a master story-teller, sometimes fact is stranger than fiction. Thanks and well done Mr Beck!”
Another 5-star Amazon review praised the book as “full of intrigue and excitement.”
“In 1984, I was part of a team of consultants who worked on the campaign to elect the President of Panama as mandated in the Canal Treaties a few years earlier,” said author Jay Beck. “This account is a story of historical fiction recounting a complex situation where choices were often made using manipulated or incomplete information. The desire to achieve success and power can
corrupt not only individuals but also a society, and that was the environment of the first national Panama election after almost two decades under military rule.”
Panama’s Rusty Lock: A Novel of the 1984 Presidential Election is available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and other fine retailers worldwide. The suggested retail price for the softcover is $15.99. The ebook retails for $2.99. Softcover wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram.
