Protecting someone always comes at a cost.

At the age of thirteen, Charlie Quinn's childhood came to an abrupt and devastating end. Two men, with a grudge against her lawyer father, broke into her home—and after that shocking night, Charlie's world was never the same.
Now a lawyer herself, Charlie has made it her mission to defend those with no one else to turn to. So when Flora Faulkner, a motherless teen, begs for help, Charlie is reminded of her own past, and is powerless to say no.
But honor-student Flora is in far deeper trouble than Charlie could ever have anticipated. Soon she must ask herself: How far should she go to protect her client? And can she truly believe everything she is being told?
Razor-sharp and lightning-fast, this electrifying story from the #1 international bestselling author will leave you breathless. And be sure to read Karin Slaughter's extraordinary new novel The Good Daughter—available August 8, 2017.

Ok this prequel got me all ready to read the Good Daughter. So this is a short story not a full length novel. I have read books from the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter, which I loved, so I had quite some expectations when I started reading. And Last Breath definately did not disappoint.

DanJolleyGrayWidowsWeb_BlogTourGraphic

Grey Widow's Web_Final_1200X800I am a huge superhero movie fan, but don't really read any superhero books, so I was really looking forward to reading Gray Widow's Walk and Gray Widow's Web by Dan Jolly. I was not really sure what to expect because books and movies are not the same, but I am definately not disapointed.

Executive Actions

by Gary Grossman

on Tour June 1 - July 31, 2017

Synopsis:

Executive Actions
In the midst of a heated presidential campaign, Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke gets an assignment that turns his world upside down. His investigation uncovers a plot so monstrous it can change the course of America's future and world politics. Roarke discovers that presidency is about to fall into the hands of a hostile foreign power. The power play is so well-conceived that even the U.S. Constitution itself is a tool designed to guarantee the plot's success. With the election clock ticking, Roarke and Boston attorney Katie Kessler race at breakneck speed to prevent the unthinkable. But they also know that it will take a miracle to stop the takeover from happening.

Praise for the Executive Series:

“Executive Actions is the best political thriller I have read in a long, long time. Right up there with the very best of David Baldacci. [A] masterpiece of suspense; powerfully written and filled with wildly imaginative twists. Get ready to lose yourself in a hell of a story.”
Michael Palmer, New York Times bestselling author
“Break out the flashlight, and prepare to stay up all night … Once you start reading Executive Actions you won’t be able to put it down.”
Bruce Feirstein, James Bond screenwriter, and Vanity Fair Contributing Editor
“Executive Command mixes terrorists, politics, drug gangs and technology in nonstop action! Gary Grossman creates a … horribly plausible plot to attack the United States. So real it’s scary!”
Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Exit Plan, Cold Choices, Red Dragon Rising
“Moving at break-neck speed, Executive Command is nothing short of sensational … Executive Command is not just a great book, it’s a riveting experience.”
W.G. Griffiths, award-winning, bestselling author of Methuselah’s Pillar, Malchus
“Executive Command ramps up the excitement … A truly bravura performance from a master of the political thriller!”
Dwight Jon Zimmerman, New York Times bestselling co-author of Lincoln’s Last Days, Uncommon Valor
“Intricate, taut, and completely mesmerizing. Grossman expertly blends together globe-spanning locations, well-researched technology, finely crafted narrative, and intriguing characters to create a virtuoso tale. Highly recommended.”
Dale Brown, New York Times bestselling author
“Executive Treason is more chilling than science fiction … You’ll never listen to talk radio again without a shiver going down your spine.”

Interview Gary Grossman - Executive Actions

Executive Actions

by Gary Grossman

on Tour June 1 - July 31, 2017

I had the pleasure of interviewing Gary Grossman for his re-release of Executive Actions. I had a blast with the interview just as much as I had with reading Executive Actions, of which I will share my review next monday. But I can share with you already that if you enjoy political thrillers you are going to want to read Executive Actions.

Please tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m holding up a mirror and I see a man wearing multiple hats. A lot of them!

I started as a rock DJ on my local Hudson, NY radio station while I was in high school student. In and after college, I moved into television and documentary production in Boston. Then teaching college, writing non-fiction books on TV history, then becoming a freelance film writer for The Boston Globe, and then onto a TV and media critic at The Boston Herald American. In the 1980s I moved to Los Angeles to produce and write TV shows, teach more college, and now… (Here’s the tada moment) I’ve added novel thriller writing.

All the hats fit. Some of them are actually interchangeable. The documentaries I’ve written and produced have figured into my novels. My media research always works its way into my teaching. And my radio years still give me the ability to be comfortable on the air promoting my work.

All the experience comes together in EXECUTIVE ACTIONS, a thriller with a good deal of me and a great deal of the world.

Could you tell us in short what Executive Actions is about?

Forbidden: Better Wear Your Flak Jacket by F. Stone
Gunfire echoes within the walls of a Middle East police compound. Screams of terror are brutally silenced. Police captain Hashim Sharif captures one survivor. Soon Eliza MacKay will wish she had died with her companions.
The vile act of terrorism is covered-up. Sharif becomes the reluctant keeper of his city's bloody secret – and the witness, MacKay. His corrupt superiors have a gun rammed against his skull. Disloyalty to the mayor will be rewarded with being buried alive.
Whatever the cost, his government’s honor must be restored. Secretly, Sharif hunts forensic evidence. Who is responsible for the murder of fifteen American volunteers? And, why did MacKay lie about her identity? He can’t trust her. Her mental illness is going to get both of them killed.
When he receives orders to dispose of MacKay, his Muslim faith is tested. Murder an innocent in cold blood? He will suffer Allah's eternal wrath.
CIA Agent Hutchinson has the lying Sharif in his cross hairs. Sharif dodges the agent’s traps almost as easily as the hit man on his tail. When Sharif discovers the shocking truth, he loses all hope of survival.
What is worth dying for? Perhaps it’s not bringing a madman to justice. Could it be saving the life of a woman who kick-started his numb heart? On the knife edge of risk, Sharif plots an act most forbidden and fatal.
