The Torture Trial of George W. Bush
Joseph Suste's second novel, The Torture Trial of George W. Bush, was first published in 2016 and with updated information in 2018.
It's no secret that President George W. Bush ordered the torture of terrorist suspects in the years following the 911 attack; yet, powerful political forces and a legal firewall have protected him and his accomplices from prosecution. It takes the courage and dedication of Special Prosecutor Timothy Madegen to skirt an impotent U.S. Justice system and bring the torturers to trial. Allies join him: A reluctant federal judge holds off establishment forces, a protective Vietnam vet is driven by loyalty to Madegen's dead father, a curmudgeon law professor offers inventive legal tactics, and a pretty political scientist falls in love with him. Ruthless forces oppose Madegen with slander, subversion, and violence.
The Torture Trial of George W. Bush calls for action and pricks the conscience of political leaders and the American People.

Growing Up Strong
In 2017, Joseph Suste's third book, Growing Up Strong, is dedicated to all of the mothers of the world and their beautiful children. My daughter went to a bookstore to find a gentle way to nudge her son into thoughts of weaning. When she couldn't find a book on the subject, I offered to write one.
Every child is unique. Some kids wean themselves early, and others need extra time. Some need a suggestion from mom. This book is designed to help parents introduce the idea to their child in a gentle way.
From Author Joseph Suste:
This writing takes me back to my childhood and a wonderful memory of my mother breastfeeding my baby sister early one morning, while my brother, my three sisters, and I gathered around them. It was a euphoric experience for all of us which I will never forget.
