About Something for Bebe
During Maddy Holt’s senior year in high school she interns for veteran journalist, Elliot Kruger. They quickly forge a close bond; however, after the death of his wife Bebe, Elliot abruptly disappears. Distraught and searching for answers, Maddy stumbles upon clippings detailing Elliot’s years as a wartime correspondent, threatening notes he’s penned, and a cryptic list of names; the first of which died mysteriously day’s earlier. Convinced he’s embarked on a killing spree, ever obstinate Maddy jets off to Italy. Arriving in Trieste she is met by Grant Stanhope (a family friend), but not in time to prevent another murder. Using Elliot’s notes as a guide, Maddy and Grant race across the former Yugoslavia to Belgrade. But powerful unknown forces are at play and they are forced to flee in the dead of night. Frightened, and not knowing where to turn, they head to the only place they can hope to find answers; a bucolic Bosnian village; Bebe’s hometown. There, they discover the shocking secrets behind the men Elliot is pursuing. The assumed identity of the final man on his list. And in a deadly race against time to stop history repeating.
Praise for Something for Bebe
Review by Peggy Jo Wipf for Readers’ Favorite
“Something for Bebe by Neil A White is a well-written thriller, geared for young adults…. I found Neil A White an author that ignites compassion and a drive for justice. Something for Bebe is fiction, but borders on truths that bound a nation riven by wars within and without. …I finished reading in awe of the skill White uses in well-illustrated scenes to make you feel as if you stepped into Bosnia. The character development, dialogue, and intense background of the history involved are marvelous.”
