Hard Wired hits 250k!

Hard Wired book cover

Thrilled to say that HARD WIRED, the third book in the Jon Reznick political thriller series, has achieved 250,000 sales since it was published! I’d like to thank all my loyal readers who follow the adventures of Jon Reznick and Thomas & Mercer who have published the whole series.

So what’s the story about . . .?

When an ex-Delta Forces operative dies in a car wreck in Miami, the FBI dismiss it as a tragic accident. But Jon Reznick isn’t so sure—especially when he learns that his teetotal former colleague was apparently drunk at the wheel.

Reznick’s one-man investigation quickly enters dangerous territory when it becomes clear that this was merely the first in a series of mysterious deaths. All of the victims are ex-Delta Forces, and all were involved in a top-secret Iranian hit under Reznick’s command. Retribution will not be complete until Reznick is wiped out too.

With Iran’s ruthless Quds Force hunting him down on US soil, assisted by a powerful Mexican drug cartel determined to increase its own foothold in the country, Reznick’s survival is a threat to national security. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein is not as keen as some government officials to sacrifice him as collateral damage, but the longer Reznick runs, the more audacious his enemies become. Innocent American lives are at risk, and only Reznick’s victory—or surrender—can save them.

Hard Hit Jon Reznick thriller

HARD HIT, the 6th Jon Reznick thriller, is now a #1 bestseller on Amazon in America, the UK and Australia. Many thanks to all my loyal readers, and also to my brilliant publisher, Thomas & Mercer.

Here’s the story:

He’s fighting for justice while she fights for her life.

With his daughter lying in the hospital, struck down in a reckless hit-and-run, the only thing Jon Reznick can do is wait—and plot his revenge. Not satisfied with the slow-moving police investigation, he starts his own manhunt.

He discovers that the car belongs to a high-ranking diplomat whose interests are closely tied to those of the United States government, and this man may not be what he appears. The FBI wants Reznick to back down, but the more information Jon digs up, the more questions he finds. Was it a simple accident, or is there more to it? How many young women’s lives has this man ruined? Lauren’s life hangs in the balance, and Jon must get answers, no matter the cost—to him or the government.

With the help of a dedicated NYPD detective who has suspicions of her own, as well as FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein, Jon Reznick will have to fight for his daughter while she fights for her life.

Deep State

Where would you head to if you had to disappear? Where would you go if the deep state was after you? If your life was at risk, whereabouts in America could or would you hide?

I couldn’t imagine a better place to disappear than the Florida Everglades. Wild, dangerous, mosquitos, uninhabited, oppressive heat, thousands of small swampy islands over thousands of square miles, remote, and for those with survival skills, a smart place to drop off the grid. But what if the people after you, a team of assassins working for the deep state, have orders to track you down and then kill you, no matter the cost?

What happens then?

That’s the problem Nathan Stone has to deal with in my latest American Ghost thriller, REQUIEM (Thomas & Mercer), out today exclusively on Amazon.

Here’s what you need to know:

Nothing and no one can stop assassin Nathan Stone.

When black-ops asset Nathan Stone took out the heads of the Commission, a secret deep-state organization, he thought he’d destroyed them for good. Now he’s gone off the grid, trying to get as far away from his past as possible. But the Commission isn’t done with him yet.

Lying low in a Miami bar, Stone knows something’s up when an alluring actress strikes up a conversation with him. His suspicions are correct. The Commission is hot on his trail, and Stone is soon forced to run deep into the heart of the Everglades with the terrified woman as his hostage. He’s the Commission’s number one target—and this time nothing will stop them from eliminating him.

But Nathan Stone is no ordinary target. The crew of mercenary assassins on his heels have no idea what’s in store for them on the River of Grass. Because the hunt is on, and they picked the wrong prey.

Nathan Stone

Rogue book cover

Thriller writers can go off the deep end with characters.  The darker the character, the better. Such fictional characters as the brilliantly conceived Jackal in Frederick Forsyth’s The Day of the Jackal,stir up powerful emotions in readers. Fear, excitement or terror. Scientists have even shown that in such heightened circumstances, a chemical reaction in the brain releases dopamine and oxytocin. Which probably partially explains the huge attraction of the thriller genre for readers today.

Nathan Stone, the complex and unsettling protagonist in my latest book, ROGUE (Thomas & Mercer) which has just been released, 7 June 2018 – the first of my new American Ghost™ series – is such a character.

Stone has a past as murky and mysterious as the people who control him. He has been critically wounded while serving as a cover CIA operative and assassin. And everyone thought he was dead. But behind closed doors, he was rehabilitated by a highly secretive government organization known as the Commission. His brief: to execute kill orders drawn up by the Commission, all in the name of national security. The Commission owns him, but Stone knows one wrong move could turn him from loyal asset to hunted man.

Rogue sees Nathan Stone being housed at a secret facility in Scotland. And he is tasked with carrying out a hit on a popular senator who is on a top-secret kill list.

So how did this character come about?

Stone featured in one of my earlier books, Dark Waters, as a minor character. An assassin. But in the American Ghost series, I put Stone front and centre.

The book begins with the deliberations of the Commission – consisting of retired senior CIA and military experts – as to when and where the US senator should be killed. But then, the reader is introduced to Nathan Stone, at a facility off the north west coast of Scotland. A psychologist is trying to determine if Stone is ready to be deployed. He has undergone cosmetic surgery and extensive physical and psychological rehabilitation. New physical and mental identity. But the Commission are unsure if he still has the same killing instincts within him.

The psychologist shows Nathan Stone covert video footage taken of the US senator in Washington DC, the previous day.

“Can you identify this man?” the psychologist asked.

Stone studies the footage. He doesn’t recognize the man.

“Commit that face to memory?” the psychologist said.

When Stone asks why, the reply is simple.

“Because you’re going to kill him in nine days’ time, that’s why.”

But Stone is not just a cold assassin. Events in his past linger on in his mind. Stone is haunted by his upbringing at the hands of his sadistic father. His sister and Nathan suffered from beatings in his childhood home, a filthy one room apartment in New York’s Lower East Side. Their father was a drunk. And beat them every day. But one day, unable to take any more, Nathan’s sister picks up a pair of scissors, and kills their father. She is committed to a psychiatric hospital where she still languishes in Florida. But Stone hasn’t forgotten her.

When Stone is activated, after proving his assassin credentials in the most brutal manner at the secure facility, he begins to shadow the Senator. But what was envisioned as a straightforward hit on an American senator while he was alone, becomes more complicated when the girlfriend of the senator turns up.

Stone is closing in on the senator and the young woman in the wilds of the north west highlands of Scotland, miles from anywhere.

But unbeknown to Stone, the Commission are running a parallel operation. And when national security is at stake, he soon realises that the hunter can quickly become the hunted.

Although Nathan Stone is a dark and complex character, I ultimately wanted the reader to be rooting for him.

As a thriller writer, it meant going off the deep end to ensure a morally ambiguous protagonist, like Nathan Stone, can become a truly compelling character for the reader.
