Dog Ear Publishing releases “JFK: 4 Out of 3” by Stephen Ladds.

A young psychiatrist challenges a patient known only as Sherlock Holmes to solve the mystery of the assassination of President Kennedy in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. His theories provide new insights into this modern-day mystery.

A dark and rainy night brings a wheelchair-bound man who refuses to speak to authorities to the Baker Clinic, a former orphanage that now serves those with mental impairments. In this new book, the young psychiatrist caring for the patient, known only as Sherlock Holmes, challenges him to resolve the mysteries of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Was the assassination the result of a conspiracy or the work of a single gunman? Set in 1989, this blend of fact and fiction includes humor and even romance as Holmes provides new deductions related to the historic event that changed a nation.

“JFK: 4 Out of 3” questions the Warren Commission’s report, which concluded Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman, firing three shots: one hit the president’s head, another missed and the third struck both the president and Gov. Connally – a hotly debated conclusion. Abraham Zapruder, a bystander, captured the event with his 8mm home movie camera, and it’s this film and other material that Holmes studies as he attempts to determine what really happened that fateful day. As Holmes begins to deduce new aspects of the assassination, the young psychiatrist grows closer to him and to his bewitching secretary. Will the greatest detective of the 19th century be able to solve the greatest mystery of the 20th century or is he nothing more than another mental patient?

Author Stephen Ladds, who was 6 at the time of the assassination Nov. 22, 1963, became interested in the assassination of John F. Kennedy in high school when a friend showed him a book by Josiah Thompson, “Six Seconds in Dallas,” offering theories on multiple gunmen. Years later, after reading a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about his amazing detective Sherlock Holmes and coincidentally viewing a documentary by Nigel Turner, “The Men Who Killed Kennedy,” Ladds writes that he decided to explore what might happen if Sherlock Holmes turned his brilliant mind to the case. This book, more than two decades in the making, is the result.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Twisted Crosses” by Thom Vines.

A former history teacher creates a world in which Germany and the United States don’t declare war in 1941 in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Political intrigue fuels a conspiracy of global proportions.

Four days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on Dec. 7, 1941, Adolf Hitler declared war on America. That same day, President Roosevelt declared war on Germany, hurtling the world into another war that stretched across continents. Those actions changed history, but as this new novel proposes, what would have happened if Germany and the United States had not entered into war with each other? Who might have gained if neither side fought the other, and what kind of power could have manipulated history in that way?

 “Twisted Crosses” centers on a conspiracy of global consequences featuring two of the most powerful nations on Earth, detailing a web of behind-the-scenes players who call the shots. Spies and manipulators with influence at the highest levels operate on both sides, and a German organization serves as a Nazi front for subversive operations in the United States. Murder, deceit and betrayal become the tools of masterminds devoted to their cause, creating a global conspiracy that changes history. Twists and turns keep readers engrossed in this political thriller about what could have been.

This is the third book for author Thom Vines, a former history teacher and current deputy superintendent of Lubbock-Cooper ISD in Texas. The 2011 Beach Book Festival runner-up “Tragedy and Trust, Can You Still Trust God After Losing a Child?” tells the story of the tragic loss of his twin daughter Kelsey in 2008 when a dump truck veered into her lane. His second book, the novel “Hope’s Ante,” was runner-up in the Southern California Book Festival in 2012. Vines and his wife, Becky, have two children: Jeremy and Kayla.
