Welcome to George A Bernstein Author of Gripping Suspense Novels/Thrillers


About Me

My background

George A Bernstein is the retired president of a Chicago appliance manufacturing company, now living in south Florida with Dolores, his wife of 57 years..  Not one to do things half-hearted, George attended numerous writers’ conferences and seminars, including that of famous fiction agent, Donald Maass, all with the goal of improving his craft and becoming a noted wordsmith.  

Bernstein’s first novel, Trapped, was voted “The Next Great American Novel” by a small Indie publisher, and became an Amazon top 100 novel, with over seventy 4 & 5-Star reviews. It is available print, as an e-book and now as an Audio book at Amazon. 

Bernstein’s second novel, A 3rd Time to Die, also has mostly 4 & 5-Star reviews. The most common comment for both novels is: “I couldn’t put it down.” Reviewers have likened A 3rd Time to Die to the best, less-spooky works of Dean Koontz and Stephen King. It is also available in audio format. 

Bernstein’s first four Detective Al Warner suspense novels, Death’s Angel, Born to Die, The Prom Dress Killer, & White Death, all have  mostly 5-Star reviews, and Death’s Angel, is now also available as an Audio Book.  

Bernstein is also a World-Class fly-fisherman, and has held 13 IGFA World Records. He has published “Toothy Critters Love Flies,” the complete book on fly-fishing for pike & musky.
