Week of Jan 18, 2019: get your $0.99 Kindle edition of my thriller THE SUDDEN SILENCE: A TALE OF SUSPENSE AND FOUND TREASURE, published in 2015 by Mad in Pursuit.
All roads lead to Thailand—where the lovers of ancient treasure tangle with international black markets.
In this complex landscape of protectors and predators, we meet Martin Moon and Delia Rivera. Both have been defeated by the dark powers of the art-trade netherworld. Together, they seek to rise again—to escape the sudden silence of lives extinguished and loves lost. But the savage forces that nearly destroyed them are still at large. In Thailand, Martin and Delia set out to find a secret archaeological site, which is being stripped of its ancient Buddhist statuary by merciless smugglers. Their quest turns deadly.
Is there any such thing as a fresh start in this wicked world? Or is there only the wisdom of failure?
THE SUDDEN SILENCE was 25 years in the making, drafted in 1990, and originally meant to be the first in a series of novels about international art crime. It was written in the same spirit as PASSION AND PERIL ON THE SILK ROAD but instead of being part of a continuing saga, it became a standalone.
Warning: this story contains sexual violence. If you were a fan of GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, then this will be okay for you.
