I think it is because I grew up in New York City that I have always had a fascination with the lives of colorful and complex characters. It seems a big city has room for all sorts of paradoxical figures.
My books, whether the novel "Them Hustlers," or the examination of how Lincoln shut the anti-war newspapers in "Lincoln's Wrath," or the memoir about my time with the Russian space program "Selling Peace," all reflect different sides of the same coin: the world is not black and white. There are shades of good and shades of evil and sometimes that makes for the best story of them all.
Jeff Manber reveals a very personal window into Moscow of the early 1990s as the Soviet Union was collapsing. His memoir focuses on three women, the three sisters, each of whom is overwhelmed by their new world of so many American-styled religious and political freedoms. "Three Sisters" is a riveting and controversial account that makes more understandable the Russia of today.

The political thriller is set in Washington of 1998. The novel brings to life the plight of Philip Greene, an occult obsessed businessman whose engagement with a high powered lobbyist sets off a chain reaction uniting an Annapolis fortune teller and a powerful reporter to do battle against those congressional politicians scheming to bring down Bill Clinton. When does history end and fiction begin?
