Aristos Press Announces the Publication of SHINING PATH

NAPLES, FL – 2 Mar, 2017 – Aristos Press is pleased to announce the publication of SHINING PATH, William Schnorbach’s first new work of fiction since his romantic action-packed drama, EINSTEIN’S GARDEN.  This new thriller introduces an action adventure hero named Lone Wolf.  During his childhood in the Arizona desert, his Apache grandfather taught him the survival skills that the US military later honed both as an Army Airborne elite paratrooper and then as a CIA paramilitary scout in the Libyan Sahara.  Lone Wolf’s day job as a “skywalker”, (one of those vertigo-free Native Americans who bolt the girders of skyscrapers together) provides cover for his mission.

The book opens in May of 1992 with the kidnapping of a feisty American congresswoman by members of Peru’s Maoist inspired revolutionaries “Sendero Luminoso” (Shining Path in English).   According to historical data from the CIA, these ruthless rebels declared war against the government of Peru in 1980 and were responsible for the death or disappearance of 70,000 Peruvian citizens.  As this story begins, the American spy agency predicted that “Sendero Luminoso” was on the verge of taking over the state and converting Peru into another Cuba.  

Like William Schnorbach’s debut novel, SHINING PATH is a multi-genre read. It is both a fast-paced action adventure and a political thriller. The author spent a total of two years in Peru during the twelve year Shining Path period that ended in 1992.  The reader receives a solid grounding in the history, politics, geography and culture of Andean descendents of the Incas. His earlier novel, EINSTEIN’S GARDEN, is a romantic drama set inside the Afro-Brazilian culture. It reveals Brazil’s African religions and the various deities that hitch-hiked to the new world on slave ships during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.  The founder of “Sendero Luminoso”, Abimael Guzman, is portrayed in an accurate manner in the pages of SHINING PATH.  He had fashioned himself as the fourth sword of communism, (after Marx, Lenin and Mao). While his ultimate demise ended the threat to Peru’s sovereignty, his real life journey provides the author with the setting and context for this novel. 

Visitors and residents alike who want to meet the author can do so at a special event being held Wednesday March 15, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at the Fifth Avenue Coffee Shop conveniently located at the corner of Fifth Ave. and Sixth St. in downtown Old Naples. Autographed copies of both the hardcover and paperback editions will be available, as well as “Happy Hour Prices” for beer and wine.  If you have already purchased copies of the author’s books on Amazon, please bring them along and have them signed.
