Author Mel King has just published his new book, THE END OF THE LINE and other stories--a collection of fact-based short stories about unusual incidents in the lives of famous people that affected their lives, the lives of others, and occasionally the whole world. In a style reminiscent of the late Paul Harvey's The Rest of The Story, the book tells of the famous author who suffered death by a bottle cap; the convicted bank embezzler who metamorphosed into a great writer so as to support his young daughter; the ugly little man whose desire for fame changed the face of Europe; the politician and founder of one of the nation's largest banks who was indicted for treason and murder; the heart throb whose desire for revenge may have cost him his life; the hunchbacked dwarf who electrified America; a real Good Will Hunting; and other stories.
The stories are ,entertaining, informative, some are suspenseful, and all kindle an interest in history and reading.
Readers from ages 12 to 90+ will find them interesting, entertaining and informative.
The book is available in paperback from WastelandPress.com;
in e-book and paperback from Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com.
