Another Great Thriller I didn't write

If your idea of a great thriller involves conspiracy on a grand scale with a larger-than-life hero facing off against an equally impressive villain, you couldn’t do much better than to pick up THE KING, the newest thriller from Steven James.

Movies And TV Shows I Like:
MY BOOKS should be movies...starring Shemar Moore!:

In BLOOD AND BONE - An eighteen-year-old boy lies dying of leukemia. Kyle's only hope is a bone marrow transplant, but no one in his wealthy Virginia family can safely supply it. His last chance lies in finding his father, a man who disappeared before he was born. Police and private investigators can find nothing on a trail eighteen years cold.

Kyle's family has nowhere to turn until they learn of a certain troubleshooter, a self-styled knight errant in dark glasses named Hannibal Jones. He has two weeks to find the missing man, but his search turns up much more: A woman who might be Kyle's illegitimate sister, the woman who could be her mother, and the man who may have killed Kyle's father.

Hannibal follows a twisting, winding path of deception, conspiracy and greed, from Washington to Mexico, pursuing the truth. But with each step closer to it he gets, the danger grows.

Good Morning Mr. Camacho,

May I call you Austin?

I have been working away from my computer and out of town. Thank you for your friend request., I am honored. I am also going out to get your book, "BLOOD & BONE". It sounds like a book I will enjoy. That of course, will lead me to your other three.

Hope to have the honor of meeting you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Michael Phelps
(The WRITER . . . NOT the good looking-kid with all the Gold).

Austin,
Forgive me if I remember this incorrectly, but wasn't THE TROUBLESHOOTER originally self-published? There's a current discussion here about the pros and cons of self-publishing you may be uniquely suited to participate in, were you so inclined.

Did you come up with Hannibal's given name before or after Harris's Hannibal Lecter? I ask only that Harris's villain's name casts some rather dark aspersions on any other character attempting to overcome the cannibal's stigma.

Oh, most assuredly a good thing. I guess the stories left her in a very pleasant mood when they were finished.

Is that a good or a bad thing? :-D

Thanks. It was reassuring seeing at least one familiar face besides Geneva's. Otherwise, it would have been weird, Hollyweird or not. Nice reconnect.

I'm happy to discover your work, too. Best wishes for your continued success.

Well, we mustn't confuse activity with progress, L.J., but I do seem to be doing something right and getting readers. As Eeyore would say, "Thanks for noticing." :-)

Hi Austin
You sound incredibly busy...and successful. Congratulations.
