Working in London, Mike Brogan experienced terrorism up close. Flying glass close. Two bombs exploded less than one hundred feet from his flat. No injuries, but as he swept up the glass, he decided to write G8.
Brogan was the creative director of a major US ad agency working on General Motors and other blue chip clients in London and on the European continent. His television and radio commercials won accolades in the Europe and were honored at the prestigious Cannes Advertising Festival.
But all this time Brogan was writing what he really loved: suspense thrillers. He wrote early in the morning, at night and whenever he could grab a few minutes.
And it all paid off. His first thriller, BUSINESS TO KILL FOR , won a coveted Writer’s Digest award. WD called it … “the equal of any thriller read in recent years.”
And Midwest Book Review called his second novel DEAD AIR, “… a Lord of the Ring of thrillers.”
And KIRKUS called his MADISON’S AVENUE “… a satisfying plot … a true treat … a great ride!”
And four-time Shamus award winner, Loren Estleman calls Brogan’s new suspense thriller G8 – “…. a rollercoaster pace to chill us beyond the breathless last page. You won’t see the end coming!”
