“Today DARK TIMES received a nice review from Literary Titan: “In Dark Times Michael Gerhartz explores the delicate yet sadly relevant organ trade problem. In this fascinating novel readers get a glance into the complicated and cruel organ trade business.

The story is perfect for readers who like to follow clues to solve intriguing mysteries. Dark Times reminds me of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan where agents embark on clandestine and deadly missions to overcome a terror menacing the world. Perfect for readers who embrace a bit of romance in their action adventure stories.” Reviewed by Literary Titan”

“There is actually a second edition from THIN ICE available. The edition published by WingSpan press is no longer available. For some reason I can not change the book. Please just look for the later issue (same title and author) in the search engines and you will find it. Thank you!”
Michael Gerhartz, Thin Ice

“Author, Michael Gerhartz, has delivered a truly masterful work of fiction. DARK TIMES follows the story of Natascha, a once most-wanted terrorist who is looking to live a normal life but is forced into another mission after discovering a sinister criminal operation at a nearby abbey. The story is fast-paced, engaging and filled with action. 
The characters are relatable and the protagonist, Natascha, is a complex heroine you’ll want to root for. Overall, the book offers a unique take on the traditional thriller with multiple twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. A real page turner!”
Elite Choice Awards

“Dark Times is an award-winning thriller by Michael Gerhartz. I really enjoyed how the author skillfully incorporated different speech for his characters based on their upbringing and nationality, and loved the use of appropriate colloquialisms, and the dialogue was written in such a way you could easily hear the speaker’s voice. Whilst the book has many characters, it focuses mainly on the journeys and exploits of a few, using supporting characters to expertly build scenes, create tension, and reveal the depths alternative, related events. There is so much to this book, the in-depth and detailed plot will keep readers entertained beginning to end, building a clear picture of the characters, their evolving relationships, and the difficulties they face. This is certainly a well-constructed novel with a brilliantly executed plot. I honestly didn’t want to put it down, so the fact I was on a long-haul flight had its benefits, because I didn’t have to. If you enjoy watching plots and schemes unravel in a character and event-driven plot filled with dark happenings, mystery, and danger, then you will love this.”
