Fredric M. Ham’s first novel makes its debut in eBook format through DigitalPulp Publishing under the PulpBytes Imprint, available now in the DPPstore.

DigitalPulp Publishing (, an independent ePublishing company, continues to introduce new voices.

What happens to a man whose daughter has been kidnapped? To what lengths will he go to ensure justice is served? Can his religious beliefs provide a moral compass and guide him in the right direction?

Dead River (ISBN # 0-9763083-7-1, published 2006, under the PulpBytes Imprint) begins when Adam Riley’s world is suddenly shattered. His seventeen-year-old daughter, Sara Ann, mysteriously vanishes from a small Florida beach community on a sweltering afternoon in late summer. Three days after her disappearance the abductor calls the Riley home, and when he doesn’t demand ransom money it quickly becomes apparent to everyone that his sole motive is to torment the family.

“Dead River is an excellent first novel,” says critic and voracious reader and lover of the mystery/detective genre, Steve Moonly. “The characters are well-crafted and Ham offers up a couple of unexpected plot twists.”

Fredric Ham’s previous writing has been published in hundreds of technical papers and a textbook on artificial neural networks. Ham, who holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, is currently an Endowed Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology where he has been on the faculty since 1988. He has written several short stories and is in the midst of writing his second novel. He resides in Indialantic, Florida with his wife.
