   THE FIRST SHALL BE LAST is a murder mystery and love story set during the harrowing days of World War II. This novel is a tribute to our country's Greatest Generation and the sacrifices they made on the home front and battlefront. "Haunting, captivating, compelling, THE FIRST SHALL BE LAST is a powerful mystery that grips the heart." -- Nancy Haddock, Berkley Books novelist. Description: Two young lovers separated by war cling to hope and sanity by exchanging passionate letters. As Howard heads to his first battle on the Pacific island of Peleliu, Helen fulfills her call to duty by working at a local factory. They soon discover they have more to worry about than the elite Japanese forces deeply entrenched on the island. One of Howard's platoon members, Judd Stone, seeks revenge against a black stretcher bearer by the name of Josiah Jackson. Howard fears Stone may go to any length to get what he wants, even murder. Sixty years later Reverend Byron Butler enters the hospital room of an old Marine who wants to confess a dark secret. But Butler can't discover the whole truth until he investigates other leads--Helen and Howard's letters, Josiah Jackson's son, and a mysterious footlocker. Known as the "forgotten battle," Peleliu marked the first time segregated black troops mixed with white Marines on the front lines. The integration wasn't mandated. It was attributed to the ferocity of the battle as black soldiers aided the wounded. The novel is based on the memoirs of James E. Ellis, the author's father.

NEWEST NOVEL IN OUTER BANKS MURDER SERIES -- MURDER AT OCRACOKE

Murder at Ocracoke, Book Four in the popular Outer Banks Murder Series by Joe C. Ellis is now available in ebook and paperback format.

Amazon Kindle  -- $6.99
Barnes and Noble Nook -- $6.99
Paperback at Amazon -- $16.95
Paperback at Barnes and Noble -- $16.95

A dark shadow has fallen upon the pristine, unspoiled gem of the Outer Banks--Ocracoke Island. Developers and investors long to get their greedy hands on its protected shores. On a moonlit September night, six people have gathered at Springer's Point to seek out the ghosts of Ocracoke. Do the spirits care what happens to the island? A strange, glowing eagle appears and scatters the ghost hunters into the woods. One of them will not emerge alive.

In his fourth book from the bestselling Outer Banks Murder Series, author Joe C. Ellis offers his readers another intriguing mystery. Oil and gas fracking companies have invaded once-sacred Native American lands in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Reports of a Thunderbird, a large legendary eagle, menacing the skies in these environmentally threatened areas frighten local residents. Something terrible always happens whenever the bird appears--accidents, murders, and even earthquakes. When the Thunderbird's appearance on Ocracoke Island coincides with a murder, the Secret Service, FBI, and local law enforcement join forces to investigate.

Special Agent Russell Goodwin calls upon Sheriff Dugan Walton, Deputy Marla Easton, and reporter, Mee Mee Roberts to assist in putting the pieces of this strange puzzle together. In the process they engage with a cast of unusual characters--a British diplomat and his stunning wife, a shaman from a local Native American tribe, two paranormal investigators, and a world renowned medium. To protect the sacred, someone has committed the profane--coldblooded murder.
