My third Cyril Landry thriller, SPECTRE BLACK, officially debuted this week.
Every book I write is different, even if there are recurring characters. Every book has its own feel. This is not because I plan it that way, it’s just that by the time I get to a new book, in some ways I’ve changed, and so have my characters. I left Cyril Landry, Jolie Burke, and Eric Blackburn at the end of HARD RETURN, and when I finally caught up with them again, all of them had grown and changed.
Cyril Landry is a loner with friends. But his friends are loyal. He can count on them, and they can count on him. If they are in trouble, he will go and find them, as he did for his buddies when he was a Navy SEAL.
He won’t leave them on the field.
So when Tobosa County sheriff’s detective Jolie Burke disappears (and her one call for help is to him) Landry heeds that call. He travels to the corrupt New Mexico town of Branch, where, between the armed militia and the militant cops, it’s hard to know who is friend and who is foe.
All he knows is Jolie called him for help. Now she is gone.
He must find her. Hopefully, when he does, she will still be alive.
