About Robert Schobernd

Hi, I publish my writing as Robert Schobernd.
My wife and I have three children, five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. When I'm not writing we share the work that an extensively landscaped yard requires. Our home is in the Midwest, northeast of St. Louis Mo.
Currently I have seven ebooks published at Smashwords. Six are in the crime category and one is a love story.
My crime stories started with a trilogy character study detailing an assassin’s rise and fall. The trilogy title is Irrevocable Change and the individual books are: Reverse Metamorphosis, The Assassin Evolves and The Devil's Homecoming. These stories are about coarse criminals and focus on the life experiences of an assassin. The language is rough and the actions are explicit. The story involves murder, torture, rape, and incest. Please don’t read the books if you are repulsed by these actions.
The first series I’ve written is the Carter A. Johnson novels. They depict a vigilante who invokes double jeopardy on criminals he determines to be guilty. The first is, The Blonde Heiress, a novella length introduction to the series. The second novel is The Dogtrot Murder. The story follows the prison internment of a wife convicted of killing her husband and Carter’s efforts to free her.
In another change of genre I wrote a short, very dark thriller, titled 59 Hours. I’ll give you a hint; some people bloom, wilt and die in fifty nine hours.
Even the love story has a crime as the catalyst for love to be tested and eventually triumph. The title is Choices: Karolyn's Story. It will be published by the middle of March, 2014. This novel was originally published as a short story The Agreement but has been expanded to let the characters grow.
My next work in progress is the third Carter A. Johnson novel. The title is Cape Abigail and its setting is Maine.
Thank you, I hope you enjoy my stories.

Review by: I. Readalot on Sep. 11, 2014 :
Wow! The Devil's Homecoming shifted into overdrive with the killing of a half brother and sister in-law, the displeasure of his Mafia handler, and the loss of his two favorite family members. Even though I was repulsed by many of Clayton's actions I still wanted to cheer him on against people wanting to kill him; especially when they began to knock off his family. Toward the end his cunning really became apparent when he implemented a plan to use the FBI to topple many of the Mafia bosses he had worked for before they turned on him. As I thought back over the trilogy it was interesting to note how smoothly his character transitioned from innocence to an evil killer. I've read other assassin novels, but none like this. The fact that this story is told as a character study instead of a mystery presented the writer with the opportunity to fully explore the emotions of a killer; which he did with great clarity. At the end of the story I was grateful that an Epilogue was provided to close out the remaining secondary characters and finalize Clayton's demise. Throughout the three books the editing was good. Overall the Irrevocable Change trilogy is far above average. All three stories are highly recommended and I'm looking forward to additional novels by this talented author.

I expected the pace to let down but it just kept going. I liked that it ended the way I thought it should and the epilog was great to provide an ending to the sub-characters. A great series.

I couldn't believe it, the pace of this trilogy didn't let up a bit. Boy, did he get even with the mob. The ending was as it had to be and I liked the epilog to close the remaining characters out. Wish there were books four and five instead of just three.

Review by: Jay Patterson on Dec. 01, 2012 :
I'm glad the assassin wasn't portrayed as a hero who rode off into the sunset. Although I cheered for him at times his bad side was portrayedd realistically and I accepted he was evil. It was interesting to see his interaction with family and how he played the FBI. The ending and the epilog were great.

Review by: Kristi (Books N Beans) on April 10, 2012 :
You don't, they have to stop themselves. As Clayton Albrecht shows in The Devil's Homecoming: Book 3 of the Irrevocable Change Trilogy by R.E. Schobernd.

Clayton's mental break at the end of book 2 is just the tip of the iceberg for what's in store for Clayton. His continued mental decline starts to put him at odds with the mob bosses hiring him and further complicates his competency at his jobs. Clayton's moral code is constantly wavering, his mental stability is questionable, and loyalty between everyone involved is debatable at best.

Everything culminates into a clash of wills that results in an all out war between Clayton and the very people who have been using his services. It puts Clayton into the position of simultaneously being the hunter and the hunted. However, he's way too intelligent and knows it's time to put a new game plan into action. It's here that Clayton allows his past actions to come to the attention of the authorities.

It's fascinating (and gruesome, as always) as the war is carried out with all 3 players (Clayton, mob bosses, and FBI) trying to maneuver each other into positions where they have the upper hand. All sides will have to suffer losses, and they will strike deep for them all.

*Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for a review*

Review by: Nora Lee on July 28, 2011 :
I expected the action to slow in the final book of this trilogy, but it kept up at a breakneck pace. Clayton is one bad killer and drinks too much. He isn't perfect and screws up sometimes and that made him seem more real. The storyline is consistent throughout and the characters are believable. There are very few editing errors and the characters seem real.

R. E. SCHOBERND'S "IRREVOCABLE CHANGE SERIES" BOOKS 2 & 3 (REVIEW)

The expansion in books 2 & 3 of the "Irrevocable Change" series is remarkable. Mr. Schobernd writes with precision and accuracy. His books are wonderfully detailed and he takes both time and great care in developing his characters. I highly recommend these books to anyone interested in high crime novels.

Review by: Linda Deewall on March 30, 2011 :
The Devils Homecoming provides a ruthless and graphic account of an assassin on the run and ends with twists that kept me intrigued. Personal relationships with the family he loved provided conflict with his chosen profession and the dilemma it put him in. The story telling compares to the Godfather Saga and the Irrevocable Change trilogy would make a great movie.
