Showcase: Ring of Fire by Brad Taylor

I’ve recently started binge reading Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan Series and am thoroughly enjoying it! I started the series a few days before Christmas with One Rough Man and am now in the middle of book 5 The Polaris Protocol. I won’t be caught up with the series by next Tuesday when Ring of Fire, the newest entry, is released, but I do have it pre-ordered so it’ll be loaded and ready to go when I do finally get caught up.

A New Year, Running and Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan Series

I hope your new year is off to a fantastic start! I started mine with a late afternoon 10 mile run. I always stop for a photo when I’m running, here is my favorite from today.

And now for author Brad Taylor. Have you read his thrillers? Taylor as been a regular on the best selling lists since his debut in 2011 with One Rough Man (Pike Logan Series #1).

Review: Order to Kill by Kyle Mills/Vince Flynn

Review: Order to Kill by Kyle Mills/Vince Flynn

In the next thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.

Mitch Rapp is used to winning.

But in this follow-up to #1 New York Times bestselling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.

Review: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

Review: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

On a foggy summer night, eleven people–ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter–depart Martha’s Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs–the painter–and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul’s family.

With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members–including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot–the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens.

Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.

You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

Guest Post: Radio Days by LS Hawker

Guest Post: Radio Days by LS Hawker

Setting a novel in a radio station has been a long-time dream of mine. Early in my career, when I had no concept of how much money was required to both pay rent and eat, I worked at a small-market top-forty station in a Midwestern college town. My current thriller Body and Bone is set in a radio station modeled on that one, and the memory of it sparks almost insane levels of weepy nostalgia.

This was my first full-time job after graduating from the University of Kansas, and most of the employees were early-twenties recent college grads eager to take on the broadcasting world. We built that station from the ground up—the building wasn’t even finished when I was hired—and worked twelve- to sixteen-hour days for weeks ramping up to go on the air.
