Hello everyone, Dani here.
So today’s Signal Boost is a bit different, mostly because it is kind of self-promotion…or rather it’s promotion of my Mousai Books partner-in-crime, Signy Cullen.
See, I’m super proud of her because her third book (second under her pen name) was released July 22nd, and I think more people should check it out. The book is called Beautiful Liar and it is the first in a series of action/thriller/spy/crime novels.
When a prisoner transport bus from the Federal Correctional Institute at Pekin crashes, four dangerous fugitives are on the run. Deputy U.S. Marshal Tim Noonon and his squad are called in to begin the search for the fugitives, but somebody unexpected shows up as well. Six agents from the CIA arrive on scene to take over the search for two of the fugitives.
Deputy Noonan butts heads with the CIA Agent in charge, Special Agent Jane Donner, as the case progresses. Constantly stepping on toes, Agent Donner does what she needs to in order to get the job done. Making friends is not her job, yet she and the other Agents can’t help but come to like the Marshals. What she doesn’t expect is fugitive Rambo Tate.
Rambo Tate, a drug dealer and murderer out of Boston, knows just who Agent Donner really is. If he is allowed to return to Boston, he may just blow Agent Donner’s cover, putting not only her life, but the life of those around her in danger.
It’s a race against the clock as the Marshals and CIA must work together to find the missing criminals. Can the Marshals overcome their distrust of the CIA or will the fugitives disappear?
I had the privilege of reading the first third or so of the book during the writing and editing process and it was really interesting even back in those early days. Now if you’ve followed my blog enough, you’ve probably realized that I typically stay in my little corner of the world with all the fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal books I read. Even saying that, I can say that I enjoy reading other genres every once-in-a-while.
I’d say that this book is just about perfect for fans of shows like Prison Break/Breakout Kings, Quantico, Covert Affairs, etc.
It has mystery, action, intrigue, secrets and plenty of characters perfectly willing to lie…like main gal Jane Donner.
I am so very much looking forward to seeing how this series progresses because it seems like it should be pretty great.
At this point I should probably also mention Signy’s first book, Farther Side of Away. It tells the tale of Adam and Eve, but it isn’t exactly the tale that most of us know. Adam is a werewolf and Eve is a vampire, and likewise their children are divided between being vampires and werewolves, which gives a reason for the familial issues within the pages of the book. The story covers from the beginning all the way to present day and it was a supremely interesting idea and I did enjoy the story, even if part of me wished that it had been more of a duology or a trilogy so some of the tales and adventures could have been expanded upon. Two thousand years is a lot of ground to cover in a few hundred pages.
Both of these books can be picked up online in paperback or e-book (though the e-book of Beautiful Liar is still being formatted), or if you are in the area of Columbus, Ohio, this weekend and are attending Wizard World Comic Con, stop by and see us at Artists Alley booth B26. It’ll be a lot of fun.
