Drugs, Guns, and Topless Sunbathing
Jane was kind enough to offer to share my news of a new release. I'd like to think it's because we're friends and business partners and we respect each others writing. Or maybe it has something to do with some photos I have of her while on vacation on a certain beach… Whatever the case, I'm appreciative and anxious to get on with my announcement about a new book that I was very excited to write. So, without any more rambling, queue the deep announcer voice: In a world brought to the edge of civilization by terrorism and economic collapse, one man… ah, screw it. That's too cheesy even for me.
I am very happy to announce the release of Marshal, the fourth book in my Wanted series! Is there terrorism and economic ruin and all that stuff? Sure. But it's in the past mostly by this point (in other words, read the first three books and start with Wanted – it's free!). Marshal pits Federal Marshal Carl Waters against some new adversaries that are doing their best to lay the groundwork for an extensive drug, weapons, and human trafficking network throughout the American southwest before the United States government is able to fully reclaim the area.
The excitement doesn't stop there though. Carl's daughter, Allison, has followed in his footsteps and used her tech-savvy skills to become a deputy marshal on his team. Jessie (Carl's Wife) is back and has used her entertainment industry skills to turn herself into a producer as well as an actress.
Tanya Kurkova, billionaire ice princess, and her devoted bounty-hunter turned personal assistant Sarah Gibson are back as well. And wow, are they back. In fact, one of the main plots of the book involves Tanya inheriting the corporate empire from her father. Of course that brings another character out of the past to stir up some trouble. Tanya's brother, Dustin. The same Dustin that once hoped to have his sister killed so he could become the sole heir.
So Marshal's got drug dealers, corporate intrigue, romance (including some twisted up love triangles), family struggles, undercover police work, a private pool with clothing optional sunbathing, and some international travel. There's a lot going on and it's a lot of fun watching Carl try to maintain his tough guy image while spending time with his daughter and reaching deep to try and offer a more sensitive side to support both friends and family.
