Matt Rommel - Battery Richmond P. Davis

Many of the locations in the Matt Rommel adventures are in San Francisco and Beyond the Law is no exception.  On the cover, we see one of the entrances / breezeways to the long abandoned Battery Richmond P. Davis.

Built in the 1930's in anticipation of the Second World War, Battery Davis was an artillery battery built to protect San Francisco from enemy naval forces.  Two sixteen inch guns were mounted at each end of the battery.  Sightings were taken by posts near each gun and relayed to a control center which provided targeting data for the guns.

Today, Battery Davis is part of the Golden Gate National Recreational Area.  During the day, it is the premier hang gliding site for the city and a leash-free dog park.  At sundown, the tone of the park changes as the day dwellers go home and adolescent gangs move in to squat and drink over campfires.

As Matt Rommel discovers, there are worse things than a few drunken hoodlums.

Matt Rommel - A Free Sample, A Free Read, A Pleasant way to Pass the Time

Wherever you are on the planet, if you have access to a computer and, you can read a rather large sample of Matt Rommel's latest adventure, Beyond the Law.  Being a sample, it's free, of course.  I've looked at it, and, while I may be biased, I think it looks nifty and is a good representation of both the quality of writing and the story itself.  If you're from some exotic land (Canada, Indiana, Joplin), leave a note and let me know how you liked the free sample.

If you are an Amazon Premium customer, you can even borrow the book for free.  The whole book is availble for no charge.

And of course, if you want to own your own copy, Beyond the Law is yours for a modest fee.  Use a Kindle application and download the novel.
