              London's social season is in full glory when Scotland Yard Inspector Frederick Abberline discovers an unidentified, well-dressed corpse down by the London docks. A widower for three years, Lord Langsford is in a dark place of his own. Although he is shocked by the murder of his g...ambling acquaintance, Edwin Percy, he is astounded when he realizes all clues point to him. He must solve the crime before Scotland Yard does or he, himself, will be accused. Langsford and Inspector Abberline, at odds with each other, independently race to identify the killer while the aristocrats and social elite attend dinners and balls. Even when Langsford is distracted by Grace Westfield, Percy's wealthy and beautiful American fiancee, he must turn his attention back to his desperate quest to find the killer and avoid being arrested and hung for a crime he did not commit. In this exciting historical mystery, Lord Langsford must face dire facts about a murder while wrestling with his heart over a lady promised to another. ... 'Expect the unexpected' because Wasserman, in addition to being a superb writer, is very adept at pulling surprises out of the bag. - Discovering Diamonds Reviews, UK

              1886 Ties that Bind: A Story of Politics, Graft, and Greed (Hardback)

              It is 1886 as Englishman Lord Langsford travels by train to San Francisco. Newly widowed, Langsford is desperate to escape his grief, demons, and life in England. As Langsford completes the last leg of his transcontinental journey, his life unexpectedly changes once again when he... crosses paths with Miss Sally Baxter, a beautiful rancher who packs a pistol in her purse. Sally has made it her mission to find the men who robbed a train and killed her brother. Unfortunately, no one--not even the owners of the Southern Pacific Railroad--seem to care. Unable to resist her pleas, Langsford offers to help Sally and soon becomes entangled in a web of politics, corruption, and greed. As murder, threats, and attacks ensue that endanger both Sally and Langsford, influential men in both California and Washington, D.C. jockey for positions of power. Langsford, who finds himself oddly attracted to Sally, now must sort through criminals and politicians alike to discover the truth behind her brother's death and prevent his own murder. Not only is this a fast-paced historical mystery, 1886 Ties That Bind offers commentary on the political and social issues that are still relevant today. - Helga Schier, PhD, author and founder of With Pen and Paper Wasserman's writing is atmospherically rich. Very strongly recommended. - Historical Novel Society, London, critical review of 1884 No Boundaries

              Love, murder, sex, and terrorism swirl within a collapsed world economy. No, it's not today. It's London, 1884. Recently married LANGSFORD, born of wealth and privilege, is bound by the restrictions of Victorian society. Dynamite has been invented, but the term homosexuality has ...not and men can be arrested for either. Langsford accompanies his visiting friend, HEINRICH, eighteen, who innocently flirts with young ANNA at London's Leadenhall Market. What should be the end of the story becomes the beginning, for Heinrich falls in love with her, never part of the plan. Instead it becomes the catalyst for everything that follows when he flees Germany to return to her. Events unfold that expose terrorists, espionage and international intrigue. Langsford walks a fine line as he crosses boundaries he never imagined, rubbing elbows with spies, killers and would-be assassins to save his friend, stop an assassination, and prevent a war.

              Anna's hand holding the letter trembled as her vision rocked, going in and out of focus. She felt as though she was falling backward and at the same time rolling forward, expecting to land face first on the floor. She put her hand on the table to brace herself. She no longer hear...d the song birds in the buckeye tree outside the window, or the hoof beats on the cobblestones passing the front door, or any sound at all. The world around her ceased to exist?only the paper with Henry's written words: his own account of what happened during the past year. The entire time, she?d known he wasn't telling her everything?but this?she could never have imagined any of it. The hard fact was, Henry will never escape the truth. 1885 Crossings gives us another opportunity to return to the world of Henry, Anna, and Langsford. A.E. Wasserman's writing is beautifully done?tense and uncomfortable. The ending gave me a chill. - Chuck Sambuchino, Bestselling Author
