Lethal Circuit by Lars Guignard. A Chinese satellite is on a crash course with Earth. It contains enough plutonium to irradiate a large city. And that’s the good news… Michael Chase is a twenty-six year old backpacker, a recent college graduate, an amateur. He flew to Hong Kong to find his missing father. Four hours later, he’s running for his life. The Chinese Secret Police want him dead. The Conspiracy wants him dead. And the one person who he thinks is on his side, may want him dead too. If Michael is going to live, he’ll need to find a hidden piece of Nazi technology lost since World War II. And he’ll have to do it before anyone else. Because if he doesn’t, a little plutonium is going to be the least of his problems. Can Michael Chase team up with a beautiful but deadly MI6 agent to locate a lethal piece of Nazi technology that will save the world? If you can’t get enough of the action of Lee Child and Vince Flynn, the intrigue of Robert Ludlum, and the adventure of Clive Cussler and James Rollins, you are going to LOVE Lethal Circuit!

Deadly Misconceptions by Sandy Loyd. PI Lucy Maddox, former thief, liar and have-not, spent her formative years as a runaway on the streets. She’s worked hard to rise above her past, and now leads a respectable life using her survival skills in a more honest way. Yet when the reporter responsible for getting her off the streets goes missing, she risks her respectability to steal a thumb drive. Lucy believes the drive, belonging to her missing friend, holds incriminating evidence against the last person the reporter interviewed before vanishing. The same man confiscated the drive to begin with. Unfortunately, Jack Finnegan, nemesis and royal PITA, catches her leaving the scene of the crime, the office of a judge who is announcing his candidacy for governor in three days. Jack is the man’s top aide and campaign manager. Jack dealt with Lucy during her years on the street when he interned for the judge. Back then Lucy was a lying hothead who acted before thinking and refused to let the system work for her. Her accusations have come at the worst time. Jack’s not about to let lies and innuendoes ruin his employer’s good name. He believes, like everyone else, the missing reporter is on an undercover assignment and isn’t checking in for obvious reasons. Read more on Amazon.
