Grecia resident Aaron Aalborg has launched his new book in the United Kingdom. It is “Terminated — The making of a serial killer. Volume 1, from the slums to the Falklands War.”
The launch and book signing took place Wednesday through Friday.
The event was held at historic Gayhurst House, North of London. Over 200 invited guests attended over the three days. A Penman House spokesman said, “We selected this venue, because it was the setting for part of Aaron’s second book “Revolution.” Copies of this and his first, “They deserved it” were also being signed.”
“Terminated Volume1” is available through Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle versions. All profits will go to the charity Oxfam.
Beginning in Scotland’s Glasgow slums, “Terminated Volume 1” is a fast moving tale of love, lust, betrayal, war and espionage. Alex McDonald is the boy from those slums. Despite the odds, he wins a first class education and achieves business success, before becoming embroiled in the events surrounding the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina in 1982.
Though a novel, the book draws heavily on recently released secret materials from the United Kingdom government. Alex McDonald struggles with corruption in big business. He faces dilemmas in Argentina and a heroic struggle against a ruthless enemy. The book also deals with the moral issues surrounding mercy killing.
Penman House Publishing expects United Kingdom sales to be high and is planning a North American launch for later in the year.
