The national bestselling author of the Legion of the Damned novels, "a must-read for any fan of Mil Fic," (Archaeologist’s Guide to the Galaxy) begins a brand new science fiction police procedural series...

In the year 2038, an act of bioengineered terrorism decimated humanity. Those who survived were either completely unaffected or developed horrible mutations. Across the globe, nations are now divided between areas populated by “norms” and lands run by “mutants”…

Detective Cassandra Lee of Los Angeles’s Special Investigative Section has built a fierce reputation taking down some of the city’s most notorious criminals. But the serial cop killer known as Bonebreaker—who murdered Lee’s father—is still at large. Officially, she’s too personally involved to work on the Bonebreaker case. Unofficially, she’s going to hunt him to the ends of the earth.

In the meantime, duty calls when the daughter of Bishop Screed, head of the Church of Human Purity, is kidnapped by mutants and taken into the red zone to be used for breeding. Assigned to rescue her, Lee must trust her new partner—mutant lawman Deputy Ras Omo—to guide her not only through the unfamiliar territory but through the prejudicial divisions between mutants and norms.

DEADEYE is the perfect mix of science fiction and police procedural, which should appeal to fans of both J.D. Robb, as well as James S.A. Corey. I’ve included a NetGalley widget below for your consideration, but if you would like a physical copy, I’m happy to send one along! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need more information, or would like us to sponsor a giveaway.

About the Author:
I fell in love with books at a very early age, typically read two or three a week, and should have been paying more attention to school! Because by the time I graduated I had very low grades, and with no jobs in the offing, had little choice but to enlist in the Navy as a way to support myself.

It was later, while sitting in the chow hall one day, that I came to the realization that I wanted to write for a living which meant going to college. So after being discharged from the Navy I entered a junior college and subsequently transferred to the University of Washington where I earned a degree in Communications (Radio & TV) in 1971. I was going to major in Journalism--but a guy in a bar talked me out of it.

That led to a series of writing related jobs, first at KOMO TV in Seattle, then at Rockwell International in Dallas, and a large telecom company where I worked in public relations, marketing communications, and employee communications before retiring in 2000.

My fiction career began in 1984, when after years of promising myself that I would write a book by the time I was forty, I realized I was thirty-nine and hadn't started yet. So I wrote a space opera called WAR WORLD, now called GALACTIC BOUNTY, and much to my amazement it sold the first time I sent it in. From then on I wrote at least one novel a year.

I write full time at this point--and feel very fortunate to do so.
