GAME ON – Lillian Duncan

GAME ON—What Would You Do?

What would you do if someone was out to get you, but you didn’t know who it was or why? That’s the question that faces Lucas McMann in my new political thriller, GAME ON.

game on

He believes he’s the victim of an elaborate and bizarre stalking game. The goal being to ruin his political career. The problem is he has no proof that someone is actually stalking him let alone who it is.

His choices are clear—either quit politics or win the game.

And he plans to win! But he can’t do it alone and he can’t go to those around him since he doesn’t know who to trust. But there is someone he trusts.

If only she’s put their past behind her.

Private Investigator, Nikki Kent makes a living finding out other people’s secrets, but she has one of her own. When Lucas shows up asking for her help, she refuses. She can’t take the chance of her own secret coming to light.

But her new-found Christian faith won’t let her turn her back on someone who is desperate for her help—even if he was the first man to break her heart!

Together they search for answers.

BLURB for GAME ON

Politics is no game when a stalker nears and there’s nowhere to hide.

A run for the senate is just a step on the road to the White House for Congressman Lucas McMann. But his public profile has put him in the middle of a crazed gunman’s twisted game of stalking. If he wants to win the election and reclaim his life, he’ll need the help of the one person who’d rather leave their past behind them.

Private Investigator Nikki Kent knows how to dig up secrets and discover those who exist in the shadows. She should. She’s good at hiding secrets of her own. Can she risk her own discovery for someone so desperate for her help? For the first man who broke her heart?

With new-found faith, she’ll help Lucas search for the answers. But with the truth comes a danger they must face together.

Unauthorized Access – Andrew McAllister

unauthorised access

I’ve always enjoyed a great “whodunit” book; the kind that keep you guessing from the first page to the last. Face it though, there are a lot of suspense sub-genres: Romantic, Military, Political Thriller, International… you name it, it’s out there.

Recently a new member joined our online writing group, Andrew McAllister, and he writes suspense. I was curious which sub-genre he was into. I didn’t need to wonder too long because upon learning that I was a book blogger/reviewer, Andrew asked if I would read and write a review of his novel, Unauthorized Access. I quickly said yes… and wondered if I’d been too eager. No offense, I love suspense, though not necessarily ALL its sub-genres. Did he write the kind I like? Oh well, I’d said yes and I’m a woman of my word. So I would give it an honest try.

He sent me the e-book version (an advantage of being a reviewer, free books!), which I set aside as I already had one book on the go. When I picked it up, I was in for the surprise of my life. First of all, Andrew’s book is not a “whodunit” story. He tells his readers from the beginning ‘who did what’. Still, I was totally captivated with this novel.

Unauthorized Access is the story of Rob Donovan, a computer programmer who is framed for a successful cyber-attack on an American bank. Customers are furious; some close their accounts and take their business elsewhere. The bank’s survival depends on Rob to fix the damage with a team. That is, until he’s charged him with the crime. Facing jail time, not to mention the loss of Lesley, the love of his life, Rob needs to figure out who set him up. The only way he can do this, however, is to find him—or her first.

I couldn’t put this book down. I read it—at work between calls—in three days which is very unusual for me. I normally take a week or more. I literally devoured this book.

For a first novel, I found it incredibly well written and full of “Oh no! What next?” It’s a real page turner. Andrew McAllister does a fantastic job with his clear descriptions of the characters and places, thus bringing the reader into the story with him. He’s also very unpredictable, something I love about suspense novels. Every time I thought something was going to happen, he threw a plot twist and something else took place instead. That’s my kind of books.

The biggest problem I’ve come across since finishing that book last Thursday, was finding another great book, one that at least compares with this one. Oh I know there tons of them out there… but I’m still looking.

I’ve yet to meet in person this fine author and shake his hand, but for now I say Kudos to you, Andrew, for a job superb job on a first novel.
