The Panic Zone by Rick Mofina

By Keith Raffelthe-panic-zone.jpg

I met Rick Mofina at BEA in 2009.  Rick was just launchingVengeance Road which has since been nominated for a 2010 Thriller Award.  We got together again to discuss Rick’s latest book, The Panic Zone.

Dean Koontz calls The Panic Zone, your latest, “a headlong rush toward Armageddon.”  Whew!  Would you give us a sneak preview?

The Panic Zone tells the story of Emma Lane, an anguished mother from Wyoming who refuses to believe her baby died in a tragic car crash. Jack Gannon, a wire service reporter from New York, joins her in the hunt for a perfect killer whose trail leads around the world in a race against time.

Hostage Zero by John Gilstrap

By Derek Gunnhostage-zero.jpg

Jonathan “Digger” Grave is a free lance hostage rescue operative. When two teenage boys are inexplicably kidnapped from a Virginia residential school for children of incarcerated parents, Grave and his crew set out to locate the victims and apprehend the abductors.

When Hostage Zero by John Gilstrap came into my mailbox I wondered if I would have the time to read it all in time for this article. Hostage negotiation novels are not my first choice usually so I began it with a little trepidation. This novel was nothing like any hostage negotiation I have ever read before. In fact there was no negotiation at all, only blistering action and a taut plot that keeps you turning the pages. Two days later, and suffering from lack of sleep, I finished the book and immediately ordered the first one in this series, No Mercy. Hostage Zero was nothing like I had expected. The pace is frantic, the characters believable and you will end up shouting encouragement to the good guys as they dole out well-deserved punishment to the bad guys.

The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver

the-burning-wire.JPGIn New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver’s latest Lincoln Rhyme novel, The Burning Wire, the weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire.

When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten, shrapnel-riddled metal, officials fear terrorism.

The ambitious young attorney was brilliant, beautiful, and on a fast-track to a lucrative partnership at one of the top firms in New England. But a secret history of sexual abuse in Lainie’s past left scars that never healed and one cold night she pushes things too far. Soon her body is found, frozen solid in sub-zero temperatures at the end of the Portland Fish Pier.
