BOOK REVIEW

DEADLY COVE by Brendan DuBois

BOOK REVIEW

FATAL HARBOR by Brendan DuBois
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 15, 2014

"It's also definitely incomplete. This sequel probably should have been published as Part 2 of Deadly Cove (2011), which presented the Falconer demonstration up close and personal. Unless you're still as haunted as Lewis is by the events of Part 1, you may think you're walking into the less-interesting half of a single tale."
Lewis Cole is determined to get the anti-nuclear activist who put his best friend in a coma. And not just to send him to prison. Read full book review >
