My brand-new thriller is titled PARALLAX VIEW, and is available NOW exclusively at Amazon for three months, then elsewhere. I'm really excited about this book, it was a lot of fun to write and I'm thrilled with how it turned out.
Here's the quick back-cover text:
It's spring, 1987, late in the Cold War, and CIA Special Operations agent Tracie Tanner is tasked with what should be a relatively simple mission: deliver a secret communique from Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
After smuggling the document out of East Germany, Tracie believes she is in the clear. She's wrong. There are shadowy forces at work, influential people who will stop at nothing to prevent the explosive information contained in the letter from reaching the White House.
Soon, Tanner is knee-deep in airplane crashes and murder, paired up with a young Maine air traffic controller and on the run for their lives, unsure who she can trust at CIA, but committed to completing her mission, no matter the cost...
C.J. West, author of THE END OF MARKING TIME and other suspenseful thriller, calls PARALLAX VIEW "A sexy, sophisticated Cold War thriller with all the intensity of THE LONELY MILE."
Ian Graham, author of the upcoming VEIL OF CIVILITY, says ""Bringing back the days of the Cold War like a Best of Tom Clancy flashback, Parallax View is a rocking read from start to finish!"
