I'm glad you enjoyed the book. Yes I intend Austin to be a series character with a nice long career :) I'm currently working on the next book which will be a full length novel. I may also release another short story or novella, at the same time, which will dig a little deeper into the back story that triggered the events in No Time To Bleed.

I've heard the same from a few readers, who didn't think they were going to like it but did. I'm curious, what made you think that? And why did you take a chance on reading it anyhow? Your answer may help me improve my marketing. Thanks again!(less)

The Last Gift: A Brand New Austin Conrad Story!

For those who have been patiently waiting for the next story in the Austin Conrad thriller series, I have a treat for you. Call it a Christmas gift, or a Festivus miracle. But it’s a story fit for the season, an Austin Conrad thriller with a Christmas-themed setting. It’s called The Last Gift.





This is another quick read, falling somewhere between a short story and a novella in length. But it tel...

Cemetery Road is a very long, lumbering mess of a tale that collapses under its own weight. I love Greg Iles' books and have enjoyed every one of them so far. Even this one wasn't terrible, but it was nowhere near up to the par I've come to expect ...more

I've been a big Barry Eisler fan for years. His John Rain is one of my favorite main characters in contemporary thrillers. But Livia Lone has been steadily gaining on ol' John Rain in my list of favorites. I won't re-hash her origin story, as that ...more

Cheers to J.A. Konrath for telling his readers up-front what to expect with this one. He came right out and said it was a two-part series split by a cliff-hanger, and on that he delivered. I went into it wondering how satisfied I would be without ...more

I've loved Barry Eisler's John Rain books for years. Eisler has a way of telling an action-adventure story that puts it on a level above most other thrillers. Eisler's characters are multi-dimensional, realistic, flawed, but deadly. And it's been ...more
