Self-published author of “Bullets and Bandages,” a novel based on his brother’s experiences as a Army Combat Medic in the Vietnam War, Robert Saniscalchi will be talking about his new novel, “My Life, For Her.”
A sequel to “Bullets,” this book catches up with Vietnam Vet Rob Marrino. Rob is a police officer living in Pikeville, New Jersey. He is a husband and father. One day, a shoot-out brings danger to his doorstep when he discovers the man he arrested is the brother of a kingpin in the Columbian drug cartel. Terror sets in as Rob makes another discovery: His wife has been kidnapped.
The drug lord wants to exchange his brother for Rob’s wife, but with the FBI’s no-deals policy regarding terrorists, Rob and Tex, a war buddy and ex-Marine sniper, take matters into their own hands.
Robert Saniscalchi is an electrician right here at KU. His first novel is endorsed by the Military Writer’s Society of American and Vietnam Veterans of America, and he read an excerpt at the New Jersey Vietnam War Memorial in Holmdel.
