jack Jack Engelhard is best known as the author of the novel “Indecent Proposal.” This book, with its high moral dilemma content (“what would you do for a million dollars”?), was translated into more than 22 languages and became a bestseller around the world. Later, it was turned into an equally famous movie of the same title starring Robert Redford and Demi Moore.

Engelhard’s latest novel, the political-newsroom thriller “The Bathsheba Deadline” has been running as a serial on Amazon.com — Amazon’s first serialzed novel. “The Bathsheba Deadline” has now been published in paperback. Bestselling author Robert Spencer hails “The Bathsheba Deadline” as “a rousing thriller.” Writer Letha Hadady calls it “a towering literary achievement.” Engelhard’s other published works include the memoir “Escape From Mount Moriah,” and “The Days of the Bitter End.”

This novel is about JFK, Greenwich Village and the 1960s, and traces the life of a comedian whose only act was impersonating JFK — and what happened to this impersonator and the rest of his generation after the assassination of JFK. A movie is in the works for “The Days of the Bitter End.”

Engelhard also enjoys an international reputation as a journalist. He writes on politics and culture with what’s called “a light touch.”
