FORTUNATE SON

by David Marlett (historical trial novel)


In 2014, FORTUNATE SON became #2 in All Historical Fiction on Amazon, and #3 in All Literature and Fiction, and continues to draw "5 Star" reviews. (See reviews below).

David created the new fiction genre of "historical trial novel"...bringing alive the people and events surrounding extraordinary trials that have otherwise been lost to history.

He is completing his second such historical trial novel, AMERICAN RED, which will be published mid-2018


“A masterful blend of historical fact and detail, of adventure and peril and courtroom drama.  This rousing murder-mystery adventure that was the life of James Annesley and his battle to reclaim his stolen heritage in the precedent setting case of Annesley v Anglesea, also gives us the story of the first Kennedys in America.”

—Vincent Bugliosi, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Helter Skelter
