Excerpt from Alter Ego

As those of you who read my newsletter know, last week I was in Las Vegas at a writer’s conference. It was a very busy trip and I learned a lot that I hope to implement over the next few months. I (hopefully) met some new readers at the multi-author signing event and hope to attend again next year.

I have a new release coming this weekend, so come back Friday to grab He was Walking Alone, the next Zachary Goldman Mystery, or click through to preorder it now! Hopefully you saw my Odd Socks post and know that this is Anti-Bullying week. There were lots of good books on the subject in that post.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am currently reading Alter Ego (#9 Jonathan Stride Series) by Brian Freeman. I’m not sure how many other Jonathan Stride books I have read, at least one other. It is a good police procedural that readers of Lee Child or James Patterson will enjoy. Good, well-rounded characters carry through the series and make for an enjoyable read.

Brian Freeman, Alter Ego

When a freak auto accident kills a driver carrying false identification on the remote roads outside Duluth, Jonathan Stride is disturbed to find a gun in the trunk–and the gun has recently been fired.

The next day, a Duluth college student has also vanished, and Stride worries they’re connected–but what would have put an ordinary young woman in the crosshairs of a man who has all the hallmarks of an assassin for hire?

Stride’s investigation leads him to a film crew in Duluth, where a movie is being made based on a case in Stride’s own past. The actor playing Stride is Hollywood royalty, an award-winning icon who has charmed his way to the top of the box office. But Stride soon hears whispers that his cinematic alter ego has a dark side…
