Westlake, Donald E. Forever and a Death Fiction Suggested By: Author.
$8.60 Kindle book. Two decades ago, the producers of the James Bond movies hired legendary crime novelist Donald E. Westlake to come up with a story for the next Bond film. The plot Westlake dreamed up – about a Western businessman seeking revenge after being kicked out of Hong Kong when the island was returned to Chinese rule – had all the elements of a classic Bond adventure, but political concerns kept it from being made. Never one to let a good story go to waste, Westlake wrote an original novel based on the premise instead – a novel he never published while he was alive.
Westlake, Donald E. Memory Crime/Mystery Written in the 1960s, but never published until now. Paul Cole suffers from partial amnesia - his past is just beyond the reach of his mind. Memory is terse and bleak and low-key emotional and as indelible as Westlake's other books.

Williams, Paul The Fall of the Shell (Beyond Armageddon,the Pelbar Cycle) Post-Apocalyptic Post-apocalyptic survival and recovery - recommended by the guys at UH.

From a review on, "This is the fourth and central work of a series about the spiritual and technological rebirth of a future North America wrecked by nuclear war. Overtly the setting is straight after-the-bomb, but the construction of societies which each have their own strengths and weaknesses is nice, and the overall flow of the stories is well done. This novel is the best of the series. Williams is a poor creator of setting and character, but the novel moves so gracefully through the plot that many readers will forgive him his failings. The title resonates over and over through events as symmatrical as the huge stone cities of the Pelbar, the one human society in central North America to have continued as an urban civilization."
