THE ELEVENTH DAY:
The full story of 9/11 and Osama bin Laden
July 2011
“The definitive book on 9/11 …a house of answers regarding those pesky and unsolved questions surrounding September 11, 2001. Thanks to Summers and Swan we now know the deadly plot should have been thwarted. Did the American government fail the American people? Tragically and sadly, the answer is: yes.”
                                                                 Jean Sasson, author 'Growing Up bin Laden'

“I’d like to [direct the attention] of Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, Attorney General Eric Holder, and President Obama, to this month’s Vanity Fair article written by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan. The article details strong, credible allegations directly connecting Saudi financing to the 9/11 attacks…When done reading, I hope that you, too, will question why ten years later neither Congress nor our Justice Department are interested or willing to investigate the truth about Saudi complicity in the 9/11 attacks.”
                                                   Kristen Breitweiser, 9/11 widow in the Huffington Post

“The Eleventh Day is a game-changer. It is the new definitive timeline for 9/11, a superb and detailed extension of the work of the 9/11 Commission and Congress’ Joint Inquiry. Anthony Summers’ and Robbyn Swan’s research and reporting is peerless in its depth, breadth and accuracy. Together, this experienced team has cleared the air of suspect research and speculation, an invaluable service to future researchers and historians.”
                                                             Miles Kara, Professional Staff Congress’ Joint Inquiry & 9/11 Commission

“A powerful book and, it seems to me, the definitive account of 9/11 – a fascinating narrative of the lead-up to the horrific event and its complex aftermath…as well as putting a human face to all the people involved – victims and adversaries – it fills in the omissions (many of them deliberate) in the official version of events.”
                                                                  Paul Theroux

“A sweeping report on the Saudi’s broad involvement in the 9/11 attacks…there was, for instance, the alleged arrangement between the Saudis and al Qaeda in which the Saudis paid hundreds of millions of dollars to the terrorist organization for not attacking Saudi targets or royal family members. In America, we call it protection money.”
                                                                  Graydon Carter, Editor Vanity Fair
SINATRA:
The Life
May 2005
“Dense and intimate…first-rate reporting.”
                                                      People

“Truthful, detailed, balanced biography…Only the most patient, judicious, unflappable of writers, and sincerely devoted to Mr. Sinatra’s music, could have written this book….They bring the superb investigative skills and devotion to truthfulness and accuracy required for any worthwhile biography of this deeply flawed life…It’s safe to say Sinatra: The Life will
remain definitive for years to come.”
            Dallas Morning News

“Definitive, dishy biography of the ‘singer of the century.”
                                                                            Louisville Courier-Journal

“Packs a powerful punch…well researched…irresistible chronicle.”

“Fascinating…and you can say that in spades.”
                                                                Liz Smith, New York Post

“It’s the depth and thoroughness of the authors’ research that make this biography noteworthy…Much like its subject, fascinating…”
                                    Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“Riveting, surprising…No one has exposed Sinatra’s majesty – and his dark side – as Summers and Swan do.”
                                                                                                                           Book-of-the-Month Club

“Grimly fascinating…immensely researched.”
                                                            Toronto Globe and Mail

“Summers and Swan tell us much that is new, and with panache.…sterling work.”

"A Matter of Honor is a noble and right-minded portrait of Admiral Kimmel, the scapegoat for Pearl Harbor....deeply impressive....Highly recommended!"
        Douglas Brinkley, author of Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt & the Land of America
 
"The most comprehensive, accurate and thoroughly researched book of events leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor ever written. It provides new information never before revealed..."
                                            Admiral James Lyons, former Commander in Chief U.S. Pacific Fleet

“Meticulous research… a thoroughgoing treatment of the many facets that are gathered under the overall phenomenon known as “Pearl Harbor”….It provides a great deal of insight into the ordeal of Admiral Husband Kimmel, who served his nation well but was treated shabbily by its leaders.” 
          Paul Stillwell, author of Battleship Arizona and Battleship Missouri, former senior editor Proceedings

"Reads like a thriller...Summers & Swan make an airtaight case that Adm. Husband Kimmel, "the man with overall responsibilioty for American's Paicific Fleet"...should not have been blamed for the catastrophe.

A MATTER OF HONOR
Pearl Harbor: Betrayal, Blame & a Family's Quest for Justice
November 2016
Meticulous, eloquent, and compelling - and hugely readable. The 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack is well served by A MATTER OF HONOR                                                                                                                                  Simon Winchester, author of PACIFIC
 
"A fine book. Summers and Swan drive a stake through the heart of the outrageous theory which, like Dracula, has stubbornly refused to die - that villainous conspirators, including President Roosevelt - were somehow responsible for the attack on Pearl Harbor. Scrupulously researched and rigorously argued, A Matter of Honor also rehabilitates the reputation of Admiral Husband Kimmel, who took the fall for the incompetence and snafus of the higher-ups who are the real villains of this compellingly told story."
