Excerpt from Blood Line

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Are you a Wattpad reader? Or are you wondering what the heck it is? Wattpad is a social network for readers and writers. The books are free, there is an iOS app. Ruby, Between the Cracks, which recently won a book award, has been put on the featured page on Wattpad, and I am very pleased with the ways that it is doing. Hop on over for a no-risk free read. 

This week I am reading Blood Line  by John J. Davis. It is a spy thriller with plenty of action.

Julia and Zachary were both unconscious in their seats, probably knocked out by one of the invisible gases I knew the CIA used to incapacitate their enemies without killing them, or maybe tazered. The odor of burnt plastic also filled the air, and I noticed the computers were smoking. Agent Moore was nowhere to be found.

If your family is a target, you have to be a weapon.

When a simple home invasion turns out to be not so simple, Ron Granger must put aside his quiet rural life and return to the Central Intelligence Agency to take on international arms dealers.

Aided by his beautiful wife, Valerie, and resourceful teen daughter, Leecy, Ron must quickly decide who to believe among the calculating opportunists, shrewd criminals, and power-hungry rival agencies racing to possess the technological breakthrough that will change the face of modern warfare forever. But when Leecy is kidnapped, Ron and Val must choose between the mission and a rescue.

Facing an impossible decision, with time quickly running out, Ron only knows one thing:

When you can’t trust anyone else, trust your family.
