About B. Hesse Pflingger

B. Hesse Pflingger, PhD, is a professor of contemporary history at California State University, Cucamonga. He entertains hopes that Fonko Bolo, the fifth book in the Jake Fonko series, will finally result in the tenured position he has pursued for the past 19 years. He and his assistant, Bertha Sikorski, PhD, have continued their diligent research into the adventures and exploits of Mr. Fonko. Their recent in-depth analysis of top secret data files from America’s intelligence agencies as revealed by Edward Snowden has uncovered astonishing new facts that should allay any lingering doubts about the veracity of this remarkable saga.
