K.M. Herkes (kmherkes) This book could just as easily be categorized as a thriller or romantic suspense. The focus is on characters and setting, not science as such.

Flight Plan by K.M. Herkes

When terrorists fire-bomb Naomi Kwan’s San Francisco apartment block, her police record makes her a target for corrupt officials eager to shelter the true culprits. Innocence is no protection; dead scapegoats tell no tales. She flees her powerful enemies before they can silence her, but she can’t stay hidden forever. As conspiracies unravel on all sides, her fate rests in the hands of allies she doesn’t even know she has.

Justin Wyatt is in no shape to go adventuring, but when the men who saved his life need help rescuing a friend in peril, he can’t refuse. Carl and Parker are determined to liberate a woman trapped by escalating violence, but they need resources only Justin can provide. He joins their mission without a second thought.

A daring escape and a desperate rescue are only the beginning. Mysteries in Naomi’s past will collide with Justin’s secrets, and unraveling the plots that tie them together will lead to explosive consequences.

Blended genres are great. Put it under both.

Bryan Pentelow | 7 comments I am gobsmacked! I have just finished Warpath by Randolph Lalonde and having written a review tried to post it on here. But the book isn't listed! worse neither are any of his other books except Origins and even that has no reviews. I now have to start listing all his books so others can find and read them. Anyone else out there a Spinward Fringe fan who will give me a hand in this exercise?
