Rogue Flash - August 2020

 

We have not one but two new Rogues books to tell you about! 

You know our Lynne Constantine as one half of the writing team Liv Constantine, as a former business exec who loves to scuba dive, but she also writes as L.C. Shaw. Her book The Network introduced us to Jack Logan, former bodyguard turned reporter, who stumbles onto an organization dedicated to unleasing unspeakable evils onto the planet--and Lynne will release its sequel The Silent Conspiracy on September 15th!

          It’s been almost two years since investigative reporter, Jack Logan, and television producer, Taylor Parks brought down the Institute—the secret facility responsible for indoctrinating a generation of America’s political and media power players. Their lives are just getting back to normal, and Jack and Taylor have settled into married life with their young son, Evan. The man who’d threatened their lives—Damon Crosse, is dead, and his evil plan for society thwarted.

         But soon a series of bizarre murder/suicides capture Jack’s attention. When he begins to piece together the seemingly unrelated incidents, a disturbing pattern emerges. Could someone be intentionally causing people to become homicidal? Meanwhile, Taylor is producing a story about a class action suit against a national insurance company that has reached the Supreme Court.

         As Jack and Taylor start to suspect that their stories are connected, they realize there is something far more insidious at play that could not only directly threaten them—but the very future of the country.

PS: Lynne will be interviewed by former Rogue K.J. Howe in an event through Murder on the Beach bookstore on September 19 at 2 pm!
                                                                                                                                                                           

      Rogue Lisa Black's latest is available now! In Every Kind of Wicked, life and death have
brought Maggie Gardiner full circle, back to the Erie Street Cemetery where she first entered Jack Renner’s orbit. Eight months ago, she learned what Jack would do in the name of justice. Even more daunting, she discovered how far she would go to cover his tracks. Now a young man sprawls atop a snowy grave, his heart shredded by a single wound. A key card in the victim’s wallet leads to the local university’s student housing—and to a grieving girlfriend with an unsettling agenda.

              Maggie’s struggle to appease her conscience is complicated by her ex-husband, Rick, who’s convinced that Jack is connected to a series of vigilante killings. Also a homicide detective, Rick investigates what seems like a routine overdose on Cleveland’s West Side; but here, too, the appearance belies a deeper truth.

              Rick’s case and Jack’s merge onto the trail of a shadowy, pill-pushing physician who is everywhere and nowhere at once, while Maggie and Jack uncover a massive financial shakedown hiding in plain sight. And when Rick’s bloody fingerprint is found at another murder scene, Maggie’s world comes undone in a violent, irreversible torrent of events.

PS: Lisa will be the featured speaker at the online Rocky Mountain Chapter of Mystery Writers of America on September 10th. Non-members are able to attend. Click the link for more info.
