Hi Mike,

Thanks so much. Delighted you enjoyed Hard Road. My focus now is on the next Reznick book, out 8 February 2018. And I've also got a brand new series out in 2018, the first being AMERICAN GHOST. American thrillers. But to answer your question, Mike, no, far prefer writing the type of books I read, which is American crime fiction/thrillers. Hope that answers your question.

Regards and best wishes,

I think you're probably right, Nathan Stone does appear to be a psychopath. But I think if you check out the follow up Reckoning and then Requiem, you will see a character who is transforming from the brainwashed killer to a man who appears to be fighting for his soul and for his identity. So getting back to your question, why such a reprehensible main character? I guess it was a challenge, to start with a man who one doesn't want to root for and who appears to kill as and when required, including innocent people. But as the series progresses, this is not the real Nathan Stone. This was the engineered Nathan Stone. And he himself is on a journey as he tries to break from of the constraints of The Commission. Hope all that makes sense. Fantastic you got in touch. Best wishes and regards, J.B. Turner (less)

Quotes by J.B. Turner  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Hi, looking for a number in Weston, Florida. Is there anything for Magruder?” “How are you spelling that, sir?” “Magruder. M-A-G-R-U-D-E-R.” “Hold the line, sir.” Vivaldi’s Four Seasons started playing for what seemed like an eternity. It was probably only a couple of seconds. Eventually, the woman came back on the line. “Yes, sir, I’ve got one in the town of Weston, Florida.”
J.B. Turner, Hard Road

“Reznick pulled back her eyelids. His daughter’s pupils were pinpricks. Reaching over, he took her pulse. Her skin was cold, but he felt a faint beat. “Oh, Christ no, Lauren!” He shook her to try and rouse her.”
J.B. Turner, Hard Road

“Jon! Jon! Please come and get me! Jon! Jon!” He tried to move, but he was paralyzed. He willed himself to move. But he was frozen. All of a sudden, an ominous thunderous roar, and the tiny figure was swallowed in a cloud of dust and ash as the building descended at speed, the smell of burning fuel thick in the air, the screaming unrelenting.”
J.B. Turner, Hard Road
