Iron Duke, The: A Novel of Rogues, Romance, and Royal Con Games in 1930s Europe

He’s a lady’s man, a man’s man—and a wanted man, on the run in 1930s Europe….

Meet Blacky Lee, ruggedly handsome with a quick wit and a roguish charm.  Think Clark Gable—with larceny in his heart and a price on his head.  A price put there by the German Gestapo.  But Blacky’s always got an angle, and this time it’s as audacious as they come.  He’ll hide in plain sight, impersonating the crowned head of a Balkan kingdom.  He’ll become The Iron Duke.

Can he pull it off?  Win the love of a country…and of a beautiful woman?  All Blacky has to do is risk everything—and, for once in his life, find a way to do the right thing.

Hubbard and Gable were fast friends and fellow adventurers.  While Hubbard was writing for Columbia Pictures in 1937, the studio often called upon him to doctor scripts for Gable—giving him a unique knowledge of the man and inspiration for characters like Blacky Lee.

“Colorful prose, lively action writing, exotic locales…excellent.” —Ellery Queen
